Two Republicans were singled out who worded their respect for life the wrong way.
Is that worse than liberals demanding abortion at any stage of development or a Planned Parenthood representative after being asked if a doctor should save a born alive baby admitting that was a good question?
Rape, incest and the life of the mother are always the exceptions to every clear-thinking pro-lifer.
The vast majority think radical progressive secularists are wacky fools too. The wacky fools on both sides of the spectrum are not significant enough to even consider in the whole scheme of things.
All of us on the right and also in the center - believers and nonbelievers alike - are concentrating on saving this country from the imposters who wish to destroy it.
Let's focus on winning that battle.
Stop making excuses for fools like Akin who believed crap from their so-called preacher that women could not get pregnant from rape and were stupid enough to make that argument.

Many religious people do not agree with your extreme views on abortion. "Rape, incest, and the life of the mother" are not the only reasons for an abortion. With all due respect to people like Rick Santorum and Sarah Palin, most 40+ couples with other children to raise and educate simply cannot afford the financial, emotional, and personal burdens of caring for a severely handicapped child late in life.

Has anyone else noticed how the "Reward our friends and punish our enemies" Magic Negro has handed out Awards this week to his political supporters?

The Presidential Medal Of Freedom has gone to many supporters who kissed his azz all the way into Socialist Heaven. Bubba "I didn't have sex with that woman" Clinton and Oprah The Lying Racist, just for for starters.

The same held true for the Gershwin Prize.

Love is a four letter partisan word.

I wonder why he doesn't award some piece-of-shit prize posthumously to the Trayvon Hoodieman?

I'm sure he and Eric Racist Holder are working on it.

The Government-Created Subprime Mortgage Meltdown
by Thomas J. DiLorenzo
The thousands of mortgage defaults and foreclosures in the "subprime" housing market (i.e., mortgage holders with poor credit ratings) is the direct result of thirty years of government policy that has forced banks to make bad loans to un-creditworthy borrowers. The policy in question is the 1977 Community Reinvestment Act (CRA), which compels banks to make loans to low-income borrowers and in what the supporters of the Act call "communities of color" that they might not otherwise make based on purely economic criteria.
The original lobbyists for the CRA were the hardcore leftists who supported the Carter administration and were often rewarded for their support with government grants and programs like the CRA that they benefited from. These included various "neighborhood organizations," as they like to call themselves, such as "ACORN" (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now). These organizations claim that over $1 trillion in CRA loans have been made, although no one seems to know the magnitude with much certainty. A U.S. Senate Banking Committee staffer told me about ten years ago that at least $100 billion in such loans had been made in the first twenty years of the Act.
So-called "community groups" like ACORN benefit themselves from the CRA through a process that sounds like legalized extortion. The CRA is enforced by four federal government bureaucracies: the Fed, the Comptroller of the Currency, the Office of Thrift Supervision, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. The law is set up so that any bank merger, branch expansion, or new branch creation can be postponed or prohibited by any of these four bureaucracies if a CRA "protest" is issued by a "community group." This can cost banks great sums of money, and the "community groups" understand this perfectly well. It is their leverage. They use this leverage to get the banks to give them millions of dollars as well as promising to make a certain amount of bad loans in their communities.
lol! You're so clueless

Are you suggesting (again) that we should send the cops to Yemen to arrest al-Alwaki. Invade Yemen? Wait until the Teen government catches him?
If during WWII we knew the exact location of Hitler & had drone technology, would you have a fit if we took out Adolf?
I now what you are attempting to say. We need some sort of methodology to classify certain bad people as "Wanted Dead or live". With National Security & CIA activities, this will never be public so I don't know what you want.
I do know this, choosing al-Alwaki as the poster boy for your argument is a terrible choice.
For me, if the COA Military think they have legitimate reasons & it is OK'd by the Administration, then send the drones.
For these terrorists, I like the Israeli philosophy, by stander casualties are the fault of the terrorist. They need to know they put their friends & families at risk when ever they are near to them. Of you buddy is a terrorist & you know it, you put yourself at risk when you are with them.
We can use drones & limit casualties or we can invade in all our war because there are never any innocent people killed in war or do nothing & allow Al Qaeda to dictate where those casualties are.
Not to go off on a tangent but British intelligence did discuss the possibility of assassinating Hitler but in the end that he was doing such damage to the German war effort that it was better to leave him in place. Hell, that's why some of his own military tried to kill him!
But I do agree with you. Anwar al-Awlaki was a danger to this country through his recruiting and encouragement of individuals to commit terrorist acts. Capturing and arresting him wasn't a viable option and neither was allowing him to continue his activities.

If we know his whereabouts well enough to target him with a drone we can certainly have the Yemeni pick him up and extradite him.
How do you know that one of the other guests at a wedding party you're attending isn't a target for US assassination?
I'm more than a bit surprised to see some of y'all taking the neocon position of absolute US Executive Branch authority over the entire world's population.
Unfortunately even the Yemeni government doesn't have much control over the Al Qaeda controlled South East Yemen and wouldn't have agreed to send anyone there to arrest one man.

The Law of the Wild West

'Stand your ground' laws cause baseless killings and make no one safer

A recent Texas A&M University study took a look at crime in more than 20 states that passed some version of "stand your ground"-type laws from 2000 to 2010. Researchers found no decrease in crimes like robbery, burglary and aggravated assault, but they did find an 8 percent spike in reported murders and non-negligent manslaughter.

Yet while "stand your ground" statutes have allowed hundreds of admitted killers to walk free, the race of the victim plays a major factor in who is acquitted. Another study, published last year by the Urban Institute, found that when white shooters kill black victims, nearly 36 percent of the resulting homicides are deemed justifiable, yet when black shooters kill white victims, only 3 percent were ruled justifiable. An investigation by the Tampa Bay Times found that in Florida, defendants claiming "stand your ground" are far more successful if the victim is black. The paper found that 73 percent of those who killed a black person walked free, versus 59 percent of those who killed a white person.

"Stand your ground" laws allow the perpetrator's perception of fear to determine whether or not deadly force is considered justifiable in the eyes of a jury. In most cases, the only evidence they have to evaluate is the word of the person who survives. Once you trade empirical evidence for subjective feelings like trust and empathy, you immediately inject potential bias into a decision.

white people kill black people?

not according to the right wing media.

Well, I for one don't think that the NSA gathering data in the form of phone numbers called or received comes close to domestic spying. The Supreme Court in Smith v Maryland (1979) found that there's no expectation of privacy when using the phone system;
(b) Petitioner in all probability entertained no actual expectation of privacy in the phone numbers he dialed, and even if he did, his expectation was not "legitimate." First, it is doubtful that telephone users in general have any expectation of privacy regarding the numbers they dial, since they typically know that they must convey phone numbers to the telephone company and that the company has facilities for recording this information and does in fact record it for various legitimate business purposes. And petitioner did not demonstrate an expectation of privacy merely by using his home phone rather than some other phone, since his conduct, although perhaps calculated to keep the contents of his conversation private, was not calculated to preserve the privacy of the number he dialed. Second, even if petitioner did harbor some subjective expectation of privacy, this expectation was not one that society is prepared to recognize as "reasonable." When petitioner voluntarily conveyed numerical information to the phone company and "exposed" that information to its equipment in the normal course of business, he assumed the risk that the company would reveal the information [442 U.S. 735, 736] to the police, cf. United States v. Miller, 425 U.S. 435 . Pp. 741-746.

Minimum wage laws DRIVE inflation.
So if they raise the minimum wage to $12/hr what does that do to the guy who started at $7.25/hr and through several years of hard work has risen to a wage of $12/hr. You, with the stroke of a pen, are going to send him back to being a minimum wage earner? What a bastard you are! What kind of reward is that for his dedication and hard work?
Raising any cost results in inflation to some degree.

Many responsible large corporations & most small businesses will give cost of living increases. These also drive inflation - most likely far beyond raising the minimum wage.

To deny raising the minimum wage by running screaming through the streets "OMG OMG inflation inflation" is ridiculous.

As an employer, I would make sure my employees wages at least kept up with inflation.( I have never paid anyone the minimum wage).

The minimum wage should always have been indexed for inflation. Wages should always be indexed for inflation. Then your argument is irrelevant.
