I do understand that. But women used to have to own up to the consequences of irresponsible behavior - by keeping the baby they created or giving it up for adoption. Of course, there was always the option of going to New York which at one time was the only state who performed abortions legally.

You can't even use the excuse of back alley abortions. Abortion clinics have their own horror stories. Look at Gosnell. He's just one who got caught.

<quoted text> I'll refresh your memory of this IRS scandal. It is about a conservative appointee IRS Commissioner Shulmin attempting to cover-up the IRS targeting teabagger tax payer groups and individuals . Why would he do it? We all know about the deep antagonism between the old guard Establishment Republicans( teabaggers call them 'RINOs') and the upstart young Turks Tea Party republicans. Think, woman, think!

The Obama plan to put women in combat units is a joke.
You're well off base (uninformed) on that subject Galt.

Per usual.

Women found themselves in combat in BushCo's Iraq war didn't they?

Unexpectedly perhaps? How would that be different in a Syria or a N Korea?

How can you call somebody dumbf cks, when you don't even know what you're talking about? First Reagan have him the WMDs when he did use them on his people. Second, that happened so long before 2001 so, Bush wasn't talking about those WMDs. Not to mention, Bush 41 bombed everything in Iraq in 92", & Clinton bombed his military capabilities, facilities, storages ect...in 98". There was no WMDs to speak of!

So, if Bin Laden was hiding in the Sudan, Bush would have still invaded Afghanistan??
Really.
Or the idea Bin Laden was in Afghanistan was the reason Bush invaded there instead of the other countries known to have harbored terrorist groups.
Bush did invade another country harboring international terrorists: Iraq.
The reason we had a military presence in Afghanistan is because Afghanistan attacked us and started a war. If it were some other country other than Afghanistan that started a war with us, we would have dealt with that country. But, it was Afghanistan that attacked us, not some other country.
In reality, it was the Arab Wahhabist jihad that attacked us. Afghanistan was the country that allowed itself to be where the attack came from. To fight the war they started, you have to fight them, and they come from every Arab country in the world. Pick the country best suited for success.

Adoption?

Why adopt when you can kill?

Let the hundred thousand Americans looking to adopt to go to Russia instead!

See? There are not enough babies to adopt in America thanks to the Liberal baby killers that couples HAVE TO go to China and Russia to adopt!!!

Have you ever looked into how many of the US casualties were caused by IED's after the "mission accomplished" celebration?
Where was that celebration again?
Bullshit.
80 percent of all people who served in Vietnam were not drafted.
If you were in the reserves, the only way you would be sent to Vietnam is if you ignored your monthly requirement to spend one weekend with your reserve unit, and they activated you because you were too lazy to make just one weekend a month on duty.
No reserve unit was activated and sent to Vietnam. NONE. NADA. ZERO.
If you were drafted, and you were sent overseas, you were sent to Germany.

<quoted text>It looks like teabaggers are blaming their own GOP. Is there more updates on the infighting and power struggles inside the Republican party? "The Ohio Tea Party is blasting the Ohio Republican Party (ORP) for raising money off the IRS’ recent apology for applying extra scrutiny to “Tea Party” and “Patriot” groups who sought nonprofit status.

“After using TEA Party and social conservative groups to help elect Republicans who have failed to represent our conservative views and values, the ORP is now attempting to use the illegal targeting of TEA Party groups by the IRS to raise money for itself,” said Tom Zawistowski, executive director of the Portage County TEA Party, in a statement.“They are doing so under the totally false claim that the ORP will in any way help our Liberty Groups fight the IRS. They can’t and they won’t. I find that totally classless.”

Zawistowski ran to be the chairman of the ORP in March but was soundly defeated by establishment candidate Matt Borges. After his loss, Zawistowski said the state’s Tea Partiers “would either find a political party to join or we would start one of our own.” Check this out: http://www.nationalmemo.com/ohio-tea-party-to...

Looks like Fetch Almighty just schooled you on reality!!!

you know what is going on when you see President Obama say this:

The whole issue of talking points, frankly, throughout this process has been a sideshow. What we have been very clear about throughout was that immediately after this event happened we were not clear who exactly had carried it out, how it had occurred, what the motivations were.

translation: STOP LOOKING AT WHAT I DID, AND START LOOKING AT THE PEOPLE ACCUSING ME OF WRONGDOING.

Weve seen this tactic before:THE VAST RIGHT-WING CONSPIRACY.

We know the presidents claim that there was confusion is FALSE, because EVERYONE ON THE GROUND WAS CLEARLY TELLING THEIR BOSSES THAT THIS WAS A TERROR ATTACK FROM THE BEGINNING.

No one in Benghazi or Libya was saying this was a protest as a result of a YouTube video. Where did that idea come from? Who within the administration decided to take accurate information and start inserting inaccurate information?

The president continues:
It happened at the same time as we had seen attacks on U.S. embassies in Cairo as a consequence of this film. And nobody understood exactly what was taking place during the course of those first few days.

No, the folks on the ground understood what was taking place. They just said so before Congress and a lot of television cameras. WHY IS THE PRESIDENT CONFUSED ABOUT THIS?

Obama continues:
And the fact that this keeps on getting churned out, frankly, has a lot to do with political motivations. Weve had folks who have challenged Hillary Clintons integrity, Susan Rices integrity, Mike Mullen and Tom Pickerings integrity. Its a given that mine gets challenged by these same folks. Theyve used it for fundraising.

The motivations and/fundraising of those who disagree with you are irrelevant to whether or not youre telling the truth, Mr. President.

I just love this so-called "liberal" so-called "logic":

Let's kill all infants a mother doesn't want, then let's go half way around the world to adopt one.

How about this:
Everyone knows where babies come from.
Everyone has access to birth control.
Everyone should be responsible for their own choices. If you choose to f**k some worthless dirtbag who doesn't give a sh*t about you, you have to live with the consequences derived directly from your own choices.
You say you need availability of abortion. What you really need is to use birth control and make better choices in the people you drop your drawers for.

Any indication that you would like children in the US to be covered by health care? Your taxes?
....or is it just the fetus you care about? Your politics?
CHIP - or SCHIP - was already in place before Obamacare.

It was created in 1997. It was passed by both parties by a bipartisan vote.

It was to provide health care coverage to low-income children.

The reauthorization bill required in 2007 would have benefited adults as well as non-U.S. citizens and proposed expansion for families with annual incomes up to $82,600.

Bush would not sign this bill for obvious reasons. A family income of $82,600 is not low-income.

The second proposed reauthorization bill prevented adults from joining but, again, covered families with annual incomes up to $62,000.

Even $62,000 is not considering low-income.

However, the extension of SCHIP through March 31, 2009, was signed by President Bush in 2007.

The Democrats moved quickly after Obama's election to expand the coverage to 4 million more including illegal immigrants with no waiting period. Increasing taxes on tobacco products was supposed to fund this massive expansion.

The income requirement under the 2009 bill, I don't know.

But, yes, children should, are and have been covered under CHIP since 1997.

Do you agree with funding millions of illegal immigrants?

Just curious.

I think all children should be covered no matter what as long as it doesn't put a burden on middle income taxpayers. They're burdened enough already. I have serioud doubts increasing taxes on cigarette products alone will cover the expansive costs.
