Go get a tape recorder and scream for help like you're being murdered into the microphone.

Most people don't think their regular voices sound like them even on a telephone message.

You'd probably be surprised it was you screaming bloody murder too.
Not something you do everyday.

Look up "common sense". Do it right now. Hurry.

Tea Party forever !

Mourdock was asked during the final minutes of a debate Tuesday night whether abortion should be allowed in cases of rape or incest.

"I struggled with it myself for a long time, but I came to realize that life is that gift from God. And, I think, even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen," Mourdock said.

Missouri Senate candidate Rep. Todd Akin said in August that women's bodies have ways of preventing pregnancy in cases of what he called "legitimate rape."

It was not immediately clear what effect Mourdock's comments might have during the final two weeks in the increasingly tight race against Democratic challenger Rep. Joe Donnelly.

The idea that you're not going to have race enter into this has got to be the single most naive thing I have heard about this case, because, number one, race determines everything in the criminal justice system. There isn't any case that goes through the criminal justice system that's not determined by race.-Mark Geragos

One criminal defense attorney who defended the Trayvon Martin verdict was pretty good about acknowledging the role of race in the Trayvon Martin caseóMark Geragos:


Did the George Zimmerman trial involve racist attitudes? Of course it did. Did the predominantly white jury reach the right verdict? Of course it did. Is the criminal justice system a racist institution? Of course it is. Do young black males disproportionately suffer the brunt of this criminal justice system? Of course they do. Did the media and politicians inflame the situation for their own purposes? Of course they did. Is this a conundrum easily resolved or reconciled? Of course itís not.

In a November 2008 study, Federal Reserve economists Glenn Canner and Neil Bhutta analyzed mortgage-related data to assess such arguments and found no empirical evidence to support the claim that the CRA was a major contributor to the subprime crisis.

To back your bullshit up, you'd first have to know what a "Special Purpose Vehicle" is, what countries they were established in, what their purpose was,...
and how your so-called "economists" convinced the governments of the countries these "Special Purpose Vehicles" were established in to force these "Special Purpose Vehicles" to open their books for their review when the US government couldn't do that.

For clarification on what a "Special Purpose Vehicle" is, ask Ben Bernanke why he referenced them in his testimony before Barney Frank's committee, after which all questioning of Bernanke immediately ceased when he uttered the words "Special Purpose Vehicle", and later he got 100% support from the Democrats to continue as head of the Fed.
For some reason, Bernanke mentioning "Special Purpose Vehicle" to Barney Frank's committee was enough to shut every Democrat mouth in DC, and ensure unanimous support from the Democrats to continue as head of the Fed.

You really need an education on this, dumbass. You can't make any determination without looking at the mortgages, and the mortgages are in the possession of these "Special Purpose Vehicles" which were established in foreign countries specifically to prevent any investigation.

Nothing that Zimmerman might have said or not said would justify Trayvon's physical attack.
Nothing.
How about pulling a gun? No one can say when Pudgy pulled his gun from his holster down the back of his pants because Trayvon is dead. I'm wondering when Pudgy's story changed to include TM's going for GZ's holstered gun and saying "You're going to die tonight" just where that dialogue came from. As we've seen on hear, these right-wing whiners can't write believable fiction to save their miserable lives and they'll believe anything Faux tells them.

Romney would have at least tried. Tax reform was one of his campaign's platforms.

Way to go. Now we'll never know if he would have succeeded.

Senate Democrats would have pitched a fit but you liberals made sure they kept their seats warm too.

We still have Obamacare which is even freaking out the unions, and we still have no tax reform, no Medicaid reform and no Social Security reform. Even though the Democrats know the latter two are not sustainable on their present course. But doing something to change all three could cost them votes.

Again, way to go.

Here it is again:

Let's go over US history again:
In 2003 the Democrats supported the war in Iraq in exchange for the Republicans giving them no effective oversight of their Marxist CRA program. All necessary legislation was put in place then.
Compounding this idiocy, the Democrats took over all oversight of the financial institutions that caused the economic collapse in January, 2007, coincident with the year the effect of the Democrats' Marxist subprime housing mortgage underwriting program began to have negative effects on the economy.
After two years of oversight by Democrats, the Democrats' Marxist subprime housing loan program collapsed our economy.
Prior to the Democrats' Marxist subprime loan program, the world invested in US real estate mortgage industry because it was a foregone conclusion that... you may need to write this down... history proved that Americans always paid their mortgages.
The Democrats changed that perception of America.

So who do you know who had a "vaginal probe" to determine if they were pregnant in all your years being a woman? Because I've never ever heard of such a thing - ever.
Transvaginal ultrasounds - which you liberals interpret as "vaginal probes" - are used primarily to detect fibroids and female reproductive problems.
The Wisconsin Senate bill stated:ďAn ultrasound on the pregnant woman using whichever transducer the woman chooses; provide a simultaneous oral explanation during the ultrasound including the number of unborn children and presence and location of the unborn child; display the ultrasound images so that the pregnant woman may view them; provide a medical description of the ultrasound images including the dimensions of the unborn child and a description of any viewable external features and internal organs of the unborn child; and provide a means for the pregnant woman to visualize any fetal heartbeat, in a quality consistent with current medical practice, and a simultaneous oral explanation of the visual display of the heartbeat in a manner understandable to a layperson (ultrasound requirements).Ē
So where did you liberal loons read anything about a "vaginal probe" in that description?
You people worry the hell out of me.
A transvaginal ultrasound would be needed to proved the necessary information early in the pregnancy.

So if you want an abortion at 5 weeks, you would need the transvaginal ultrasound to satisfy the requirements.

Who cares? The Justice System worked / case closed.

There are more important things and outrage being done by Democrats we need to focus on.

This case where the hoodlum punk caused his own death is just a distraction.
