Want health care? Do these things:
1) Don't drop out of school.
2) Study something useful to the economy while you're in school.
3) Don't have children before you're married.
4) Get a job, and show up for work every day on time.
5) Do what you're paid to do while you're at work.
In what the United States used to be, doing the above would allow you to afford very good health care. My parents were semi-literate, and they afforded good enough health care for 5 kids by doing that.
Why isn't that true today?
Because they are just poor, helpless victims of society and they deserve everything for free. Oh wait, I forgot, many of them are ILLEGAL as well.

I didn't get a reaction from this statement:
The Washington Navy Yard shooter had a security clearance that very obviously should not have been given to him.
He was allowed to have a security clearance because he was black. Had he been white, there is no way in hell anyone with a background like that would have been given a clearance.
Why are the standards different for black people than for white people?
There are very many black people working in the Navy Yard. He didn't shoot any black people. He only shot defenseless white people.
I suppose this could be Obama's son, too.
Perhaps, but he couldn't be a racist, only whites can be racist.

Is that the fulfillment of one of his prophesized miracles?
Now all he has to do is perform a miracle in India and China.
You probably think the global warming issue being put to rest once and for all is another of his miracles.
Go ahead and just admit it.
Carol, you do realize that Global warming causes the sea levels to rise so reducing the greenhouse emissions to reduce the effects of global warming would lessen that sea level increase.

India & China are smart enough to know that Global Warming needs to be addresses. Too bad you are not.

Aaron Alexis was a practicing Buddhist who spoke Thai and hoped to one day move to Thailand.

His circle of friends was small, he perceived slights where there weren't any__he was basically nuts.

Not all the victims were white as one lying topix mofo offered earlier today__at least one was black and another was a Hindu Indian American. Not all the dead have been ID'd yet. None of the dead were active duty military most were older, one 73 yoa.

There were several state department employees who could be subpoenaed__the rest (approx 21) were CIA operatives and contractors.

Why won't Issa issue the subpoenas?
Let's see now...

Could it be this administration is stonewalling the investigations?

CNN (August 1, 2013)- After ignoring requests for months, the State Department has left no alternative but to issue subpoenas for documents relevant to our investigation,” Issa said in a statement.“State Department tactics to delay and impede accountability have exhausted the Committee’s patience. Further subpoenas may also be necessary if the Department is not forthcoming on other requests.

...or perhaps the State Department, a.k.a. John Kerry, is not willing to cooperate?

The Hill (September 10, 2013)- The chairman of the Oversight panel, which is leading the Benghazi investigation, threatened Tuesday to subpoena Americans wounded in the terror attack.

Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) wrote to Secretary of State John Kerry, giving him until Sept. 24 to make the witnesses available. The State Department has said it wouldn't force recalcitrant employees to talk to lawmakers but Issa pointed out that several have talked to media outlets and were interviewed by the State Department's independent panel investigation Benghazi last year.

...yes, I believe that's it.

Are you suggesting that CIA operatives and contractors cannot be subpoenaed?

Although Galt is not a fan, Ralph Reed was never known primarily for anti-abortion crusading.

Besides, Reed is yesterday's news, like you.

I think he should also send one to Paula Broadwell.

Well then, if you want a candidate who never so much as utters they are pro-life even without elaborating, you're going to alienate a significant number of conservative voters.
If that's the way you feel, then feel free to vote for the likes of Obama or Hillary.

Conservatism is not defined by the abortion issue...in fact, many conservatives, particularly women, will not vote for a strict anti-abortion candidate no matter how conservative on other issues.

Because that question is going to come up in the debates every single election cycle.
Even black voters are switching parties in part because of this issue.
However, I agree with you that conservative candidates who are pro-life (and remember Giuliani was pro-choice) should be very cautious as to how much emphasis they allow the opposition to push this issue just to entrap them. But it's always going to be an issue. They just have to learn how to outsmart them without losing the higher ground.
But to label "fundamentalist Christians" as "anti-abortion radicals" is rather naïve on your part. No offense, but it's more of a moral issue and many oppose it on both sides...fundamentalist Christians or not.
How about a candidate who just states that he is personally opposed to abortion but respects the rights of people to make their own decisions about their own lives free of government interference?

Or do you religious fundamentalists want the government making your decisions?
