Barack Obama, our next President

What about the wishes of the developing human being the "mother" created by her decision not to have protected sex?
Women should have the right to kill the life they, themselves, created even when birth control is easily accessible and creating an unwanted baby is easily avoidable?
The percentage of those who are pro-choice has dropped from 47% to 41%. I believe it's going to shrink even further.
Now that birth control is free.
nice argument, but i'm pretty sure the right wing nutjobs have been calling birth control the same as an abortion.

so carol...when did you become a liberal?

Seriously? You can't see that if Obama had admitted to a terrorist attack on the anniversary of 9/11 after announcing to everyone on the campaign trail he personally had al Qaeda on the run because he killed bin Laden that he wouldn't look ridiculous just weeks before the election?
He just looked ridiculous instead after the election because everyone knew he lied to win the election.
That makes a lot of people angry - reasonable people.
Don't know if "he personally had al Qaeda on the run" but his drone program and the killing of Osama bin laden seem impressive.

The infant is not a fetus if it can survive on it's own. Even that's arguable. Why is a murderer charged with double homicide when he kills a pregnant mother?

...a difficult moral issue.
Women are going to abort the fetus, legally or illegally ....have done so since colonial times.
In a perfect world there would be No abortions.
Morality is not determined by percentage favoring abortion or opposing abortion?
No law is going to prevent abortions from happening.

But the original law was extremely narrow in its definition of abortion and led to Pandora's Box being opened and now we have abortionists like Gosnell and Tiller - the two who were just caught doing late term and born alive abortions. Who knows how prevalent this is?

We also now have liberals demanding late term abortions be legal as well.

The killing of human life becoming the law of the land can only lead to a barbaric society.

There are no easy solutions but a society MUST take the moral high ground to be considered a civilized society on issues concerning life and death and respecting life in any form or phase of development.

The number of abortions has skyrocketed since Roe v Wade. It's not even considered a moral dilemma by most liberals - not even late-term abortions. We've already become a barbaric society.

This is Flack b;laming the Democrats for the Bush recession.

Signed into Law May25th.

Went into effect July 26th.

That .70 cents an hour raise.

less than two months later Bush tells us we are on the verge of a financial meltdown & the worst recession in 80 years starts in December.

Yep that minimum wage did it.

Nor the unfunded Bush Tax cuts

Not record Earmarks

Not doubling the debt

Not two quagmire unfunded wars

Not the unfunded part D expansion to Medicare.

It was that GD .70 cents an hour raise to the minimum wage.

No, especially since he came out within a day or two calling it an "act of terror". Fox doesn't spin it that way of course but I heard the words come out of his mouth.

So, evidently it DIDN'T effect the outcome of the election since that admission was made nearly two months ahead of the election.

Like I said, your severe partisanship makes you stupid.

Supreme Court Guts The Voting Rights Act

The decision frees up those jurisdictions to change their voting laws without supervision. But the federal government still has the power to target a voting law in court, after it is passed, if it is suspected of having a discriminatory effect on a particular racial group.

now it's just a matter of which southern state gets hit with a federal lawsuit.

and yes, it's up for debate.
No, its not. Scientist have discovered through DNA mapping that as the sperm (1/2 cell) and egg (1/2 cell) merge to form a single cell the DNA is of the cell with no resemblance to the mother's or father's DNA. The DNA of this single cell has all the DNA to create the human that it will grow into. In other words it is a distant and separate life form upon the merger of the sperm and egg. But if you want to kill your future go right ahead.

"But you conveniently overlooked the part about "Democrats promoting and protecting Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac". And you conveniently overlooked the part about the "economy taking off after the Bush tax cuts". So, basically, you are wrong."
so let's start with how a Republican Congress somehow let Democrats protect F&F.
and then we can go on to how the Bush tax cuts did nothing for our economy. did plenty for China's economy, but a big failure at home.
The ratio of Republicans to Democrats who supported F&F and were on their payroll is miniscule in comparison.

It was a Republican Congressional hearing in 2004 that tried to rein in F&F. Every single Democrat was outraged.

An attempt at another tax cut which worked the first time was too late the second time when the house of cards had already collapsed.

Concentrate.
Comment still stands Sonic was quoting from a comment section not a guardian article.
So?

Was the information incorrect?

Did Bush NOT promote his Ownership Society?

Did handing out tens of thousands of down payments to low income home buyers NOT contribute to the housing bubble collapse?

You hyper-partisans lose sight of all reason.

Hmmmm
Interesting comment.
Does morality include those yet born or does it only concern those now living?
What would prevent this from being reduced to just situational ethics?
Another thing I love about the "less government" Republicans. They want the government to be the final arbiter in all moral questions as long as it reflects their "morality".

In Illinois the city of Park Ridge, you can't feed the birds-you can't park a pick up truck EVER on the street-but must purchase a city sticker to park in your own drive or garage-you can't put garbage bags filled with leaves to insulate your house in the winter--even though no one can see them-and you certainly can't have lawn chairs on your front lawn.
Do they actually require purchase of a city sticker to park in your own drive or garage?

Incredible!

Well, that was his claim.

And for him to take all the credit for the hard work that went into finding bin Laden over a five year time span - which Obama had absolutely nothing to do with - and coming off the golf course just in time to see the Seals raid bin Laden's compound after doing what any president would have done and giving them the go ahead was nothing but disgraceful.

I don't-my father in law does-funny thing though his property taxes are now more than he paid for his house 40 some years ago. How can that be? only because of big government in a small town. I don't think anyone should retire or live in Illinois. It is never going to be a viable state. I predict it will be the first state to declare bankruptcy.

<quoted text>One easy way to solve this 'problem' is repeal CitizensUnited and end citizens' political action groups from applying for 501(c)(4) status. The I.R.S. won't have to 'close exam' these groups and individual citizens will be given back their private right to donate to political groups that they want to without being pressured by them through 'raise the money' solicitation e-mails and phone call pledge campaigns.
How do you propose to "repeal" a Supreme Court decision?
