Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

This may bore you but infant viability and safety of women will always be of interest to me. It is about public health.
Should it be mandatory that abortion clinics have routine inspections is most definitely a public interest question. If it isn't happening, then the policy needs changed.
What is infanticide? Does it occur only after birth or does it occur when the umbilical cord is cut prior to birth to guarantee the would-be-viable infant is stillborn?
Some things are not all about politics.
But, I continued to re-post the poll due to Dave's and Yeah's confusion about what it stated.
Abortion is a constitutionally protected right. Has been since 1973.
----------

""Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 113 (1973), is a landmark decision by the United States Supreme Court on the issue of abortion. Decided simultaneously with a companion case, Doe v. Bolton, the Court ruled 72 that a right to privacy under the due process clause of the 14th Amendment extended to a woman's decision to have an abortion, but that right must be balanced against the state's two legitimate interests in regulating abortions: protecting prenatal life and protecting women's health. Arguing that these state interests became stronger over the course of a pregnancy, the Court resolved this balancing test by tying state regulation of abortion to the trimester of pregnancy."

You are one of the idiots who blame Gov't on invading your privacy, yet you're too stupid to see that's exactly what you're doing with your unConstitutional anti-abortion beliefs.

----------

Why do you nitwits hate the US Constitution and defy it's rulings??

Because you're sore losers, that's why!!

You insist on outlawing safe abortion centers, yet bitch and whine when people like Gosnell are all that's left for poor women.

You're another sick old post menopausal woman, just like Carol, who you appear to have a crush on. Go munch her carpet elsewhere, ya freak!!

THE GENIUS!

Borrows long term at 1.8% to fix the Republican mess.

The top few % are worth over $60 Trillion today.

USA owes 16.

Billionaires do not need tax cuts. They don't deserve them. They made all that dough with tax rates as is. Then complain tax rates are too high? When?

When they were able to amass huge fortunes with tax rates historically higher than now?

Bush/Cheney: "we are due"

So they handed out the US TREASURY TO ALREADY RICH PEOPLE.

During wartime.

Dumb that.

I say cut taxes for average folks who will spend it now.

Raise taxes on rich people who already have everything and can afford it.

Our economy got strong because of a strong middle, buying stuff everyday in large numbers.

We have always had a few rich at the top owning most of the pie, they don't spend enough to drive a large economy. HOARDERS!

Word association:

Republican. Greedy.

Republican. Idiot.

Republican. Hypocrite.

How come you omitted developing new, alternative energy sources. This country was able to put a man on the Moon in less than a decade from starting with failed launches of satellites.

am I to believe that in the over 120 years of the internal combustion engine and coal produced electrical power we haven't been able to develop more efficient, cleaner sources of power....

Another reason for greater use of nuclear energy, but the obvious answer has no chance in a leftist political environment.
Notice that the cleanest, best, and virtually unlimited energy source is never even mentioned.
Right. Fukushima is a great example of what nuclear can do.

And look where a host of them are located... in the Ohio valley area of the US.

Fukushima was "prepared" for an earthquake and tidal wave.

I wonder what an earthquake would do in the Ohio Valley?

"The mixed-use Mizner Park town center demonstrates how suburban communities can create vital downtowns by redeveloping abandoned shopping centers. In Boca Raton, Florida, redeveloping the underused Boca Raton Mall into a community center removed a blighted property and helped revitalize the surrounding community." http://www.epa.gov/smartgrowth/case/mizner.ht...
Human nature is for people to want their space, to want to spread out, to not want to be packed closely together.

Abandoned shopping centers should be bulldozed.

Great.
Further proof that Nobraina can't comprehend what he reads.

In his insanity, everything must be twisted from the truth in order for Nobraina to tell outrageous lies.

Funny that it's the Repugnants who are pushing to arm the Syrian opposition.

Obama has resisted it every step of the way, while McLame goes to visit Al Queda in Syria.

Much less so than the abortion/gay marriage/immigration formula as evidenced by the legislation they pursue once gaining office.

Montana's legislature has been trying to come up with a catchy replacement for "TEA" 'cause Hunting Is The Most Important Thing To Us just doesn't lend itself easily to one.

Isn't it amazing that the crowd that screams less gov't,
that requiring background checks prior to purchasing a firearm is an infringement on their constitutional rights
are the first to want the gov't to dictate who you can marry
are the first to want the gov't to dictate what medical procedures you can have
are the first to want the gov't to control the sex lives of women
are the first to want the gov't to dictate what you can use personally, what drugs you can use recreationally

DemoKRats have always helped and been on the side of the black folks for years keeping blacks enslaved, equal, aborted controlling their numbers, in their place, under-educated and poor, living off their Masters wealth and sold out...

Yet wide spread opinion among the soldout blacks? Race Trumps Common Sense....

A black urban crime rate that is 8.3 times higher than that of whites.

KLAN PARENT HOOD has done a better job of killing blacks off than your old KKK ever could you racist...

These are the elected representatives of you nitwits. Notice the 'R'
next to their names?? Folks like you and Dumbwaiter can call them rino's all you want, but the fact is, they're elected Repugnants.

Voices of the future?? That leaves you out. You are a voice of the distant past, living on Social Security and Medicare, wasting your life 24/7 on Topix making a complete fool of yourself with your outdated racism, mysogyny, hatred for all things American.
