<quoted text>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.

But I'd love to get your reaction.
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.

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.
Mission accomplished.
Who were these international terrorists being hardbored in Iraq? When did Afghanistan attack us?

<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... Can a political party secede from itself?:-D
Anything to defend Obama!!!

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

Pelosi did requested Obama to use IRS as a political tool to punish anyone with different points of views!

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.

<quoted text>
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.

Your thoughts?

In case you just woke up from a fifteen-year, Abu Nidal, for one.
In case this information wasn't in your indoctrination sessions, Saddam Hussein was giving money to mothers of suicide bombers.
In case you were still abducted by aliens at that time, Afghanistan attacked us on September 11, 2001.
When did the aliens return you to Earth?

Is there one??? Carol?? Jimmy? No Surprize/TSM?? Dumbwaiter? Galt?
So far we have Flack & Eman saying we would have invaded Afghanistan if Bin Laden was somewhere else.
We could have gone after obl without invading. There was more to it than obl being there.

Okay, I guess I'm going to have to just post what was in this article.

"Shortly after the gruesome discovery of aborted babies in a dumpster behind Dr. Alberto Hodari's Womancare abortion facility in early March, Citizens for a Pro-Life Society discovered the mutilated bodies of aborted babies in another dumpster at Women's Advisory Clinic in Livonia, Michigan, owned by Dr. Reginald Sharpe."

http://www.reuters.com/article/2008/05/08/idU...

This was in 2006 and in just one state.

I cringe at how prevelant this is in 2013 in all states.

One common theme emerges from the hearings over the Benghazi disaster: The Obama administration is intent on downplaying the Islamic roots of terrorists who harbor an existential hatred of the West.

The killing of Osama bin Laden was supposed to have cut the hideous head off a mutant snake. His death officially destroyed the core of the aberrant al-Qaeda.

The removal from power of the outlier Qaddafi was likewise to have put an end to the artificial obstacle to the natural evolution toward democracy in Libya. In those regards, an al-Qaedainspired, pre-planned hit on the American consulate, resulting perhaps in a full-fledged Mogadishu-like shootout, just was not in the administrations pre-election cards.

No one was disposed either to beef up security in the face of escalating threats, or to send in teams in extremis to save the besieged Americans, or to give an honest appraisal afterward of what had transpired.

Meanwhile, the opportunity to blame the entire mess on an easily caricatured right-wing Christian Islamophobe crackpot was too tempting as Susan Rice, Hillary Clinton, and the president himself found as they serially damned the suddenly-to-be-imprisoned Mr. Nakoula. He was a con artist, but not the provocateur of the Benghazi violence and yet he proved a perfect vehicle for showcasing the administrations multicultural bona fides.

In terms of explaining away the lapses in Benghazi, the challenge arose of how many ways top officials could damn the unfortunate Mr. Nakoula as if each denunciation made it unnecessary to utter the word terrorism or al-Qaeda.
