What I said had nothing to do with what you said. So you just wasted your time posting something I already knew. In fact, roe v wade never used the word abortion and it's restrictions were very narrow.
It just opened Pandora's Box and now we have abortionists like Gosnell. He's just the one who got caught.

I'm sure those journalists who compiled that report didn't interject any bias whatsoever.
However, one of Saddam's top generals who turned against him and one of his scientists who did the same both said publicly that Saddam, in fact, did move his WMDs.
He had them, he used them, and he would have had them and used them again given the first opportunity.
It's not that difficult to connect the dots.
You took what Hussein's general said out of context ;you twit! George H W Bush destroyed all of Hussein's weapon caches during Desert Storm so there were none left in the country by the time Bush W was in office. Also, Hussein flatly turned down all offers by Bin Laden to join forces--why? Because Hussein , a Shiite tyrant ruling by brute military force over a Sunni majority Iraqi population was not about to invite a Sunni madman (bin Laden ) trojan horse in the front door. Sunni terrorists bearing gifts are worse than Greeks bearing gifts or didn't you ever read Homer's Iliad and Odyssey?

of course ,you and Auntie Roo(Lou) missed why Roe v. Wade was so important . It prevents the Doctor Gosnell's of the world from getting away with his crimes . Roe v. Wade made criminal prosecution of doctors or quacks who performed unsafe abortions on women.

<quoted text>Pat Quinn is doing the economically responsible thing by raising revenue . Austerity measures causes most of the hardship , pain and suffering to be burdened on the working poor and least advantaged in society. Austerity cuts shrink the domestic economy which is the exactly worst thing you can do during recession and high unemployment--see today's Greece.
The results speak for themselves.

Illinois is a welfare state that is hostile to business.

Of course, Quinn is not completely to blame for the failures of Obama.

Not very educated in the Classical Literary Works either, junior?

No poetry jam. Just the facts & some advice civily extended.

I know, your strange liberal Stockholm Syndrome makes it difficult for you to comprehend civility.

Good Night! ;)

1. George H. W. Bush barely invaded Iraq and could not have destroyed all weapons.

2. Saddam Hussein was a Sunni Muslim.

Do you ever get anything right?

Why not get government out of the business of franchising cable companies and let them compete as they choose?
Government should not be picking winners and losers.
There are these things called contracts.

A government can enter into contracts with companies to service their constituents.

You know, like you right whiners want to privatize government. How do you think that would be done? Putting out services for bids & awarding contracts.

You are telling us that government can't ward contrats because that picking winners & losers.

$1 trillion, more or less, all pissed away.
Well, it was about $800 billion.

But 38% of that consisted of tax breaks.

You just said tax breaks don't cost anything

So make up your mind, Galt.

Either tax cuts don't cost anything and the stimulus bill cost 62% of 800 billion or abut 500 billion or tax cuts do cost money & the stimulus bill cost 800 billion.

You can't have it both ways.

I don't think anyone, white or black, likes that style of pants hanging down, but then again we are older. People didn't like us wearing bell bottoms and platform shoes either! After all , it's just clothes. There was a fad when I was young wherein we were all wearing army pants and construction boots!! What were we thinking? As I said, who cares? Clothing is self expression. Most grow out of it with time. My son and his friends were all white and going to Lutheran school and had their pants hanging too! Go figure! That was 10 years ago!
You do know where it comes from and what it means? The pants thing.

Clinton destroyed all of Saddam Hussein's WMD capabilities with the air strikes in 1998. I'll tell you what you dudes thought. Y'all thought bullying Saddam would calm the tensions in the middle east caused by Reagan, continued by Bush 41, controlled by Clinton, & exploded by Bush 43. You can't bullyccountries where the people go to war with rocks & kitchen utensils! People willing to give their lives for their beliefs both, spiritually & mortally! American (Republican) presidents created their own devils. That's what happens when you try to play God! Americans (republicans) still haven't learned their lesson. Republicans trying to coax Obama into sending troops into Syria under false pretense, like Bush did in Iraq! Good thing Obama is as laid back & cool headed as he is. War is only profitable when there's something to gain. Look what we've gained from Bush's 2 wars, nothing but debt!

You would be right. Doesn't matter though because I'm about to upgrade to the new Samsung televisions. No cable or satellite required. Works just like the phone. In fact that's what it is. A very large Galaxy5.
