Thank you. That was before the sexual revolution. White girls who got pregnant went to the hospital to get a D&C; or went to a kitchen butcher to get an abortion. Otherwise; they either got married or were sent to a home for unwed mothers and gave the baby up for adoption.
Exactly. And blacks were left with no option except to have the baby and raise it as best they could.

No. Richard Dawkins is an agnostic. He said, "On a scale of seven, where one means I know God exists, and seven I know he doesn't, I call myself a six." He believes in keeping an open mind unlike you.
You Democrats displayed your open mind with Joe Lieberman now, didn't you?

Your ideal of open mindedness and diverse opinions is to crucify anyone who disagrees with a single issue.

Obama was asked at a press conference in the Netherlands about his declining influence in the world and if Romney was right about Russia.
Even the press in other parts of the world will ask the hard questions. Just not here..
Obama's answer about Romney ended up being about his concern of a nuclear bomb in Manhattan. Talk about distracting from answering the question.
Further proof Oblamer is lost without his teleprompter.

He also called Russia a weak regional power.

It's quite dramatic, but you missed his point. It's really hard to have a discussion with you people, because you go off on tangents.
The nonmarital birth rates by race only went back as far as 1995. Where's 1964?

Good for you.
You Democrats always are consistent. I'm sure you think this is Bush's fault.
Another mistake was the Democrats agenda of giving out mortgage loans to people who could not pay. You will never admit that though. It's all Bush's fault, right?
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v =NQXbT5ZMYaYXX
Watch the video mushbrain.
Democrats are not without blame but Bush ignited the flame. It was his belief that Americans do best when they own their own home paired with his conviction that markets do best when left alone that took us down.

Bush proposed affordable housing tax incentives.

Bush insisted that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac meet ambitious new goals for low-income lending.

Concerned that down payments were a barrier, Bush persuaded Congress to spend up to $200 million a year to help first-time buyers with down payments and closing costs and
Bush pushed to allow first-time buyers to qualify for federally insured mortgages with no money down.

How was this not his fault?

“We can put light where there’s darkness, and hope where there’s despondency in this country. And part of it is working together as a nation to encourage folks to own their own home.” President Bush, Oct. 15, 2002

“Wall Street got drunk.” President Bush

“We absolutely wanted to increase homeownership. But we never wanted lenders to make bad decisions.” President Bush

“Corporate America has a responsibility to work to make America a compassionate place” said President Bush. "And corporate America, eyeing a lucrative market, delivered in ways Mr. Bush might not have expected, with a proliferation of too-good-to-be-true teaser rates and interest-only loans that were sold to investors in a loosely regulated environment."

“The Bush administration took a lot of pride that homeownership had reached historic highs, but what we forgot in the process was that it has to be done in the context of people being able to afford their house. We now realize there was a high cost." John W. Snow, Paulson's predecessor

“No one wanted to stop that bubble. It would have conflicted with the president’s own policies.” Lawrence B. Lindsey, Mr. Bush’s first chief economics adviser

Hey America!

Let's relinquish control of the internet registrations!

It's an Obama initiative - totally foolish as usual.

Nobody can say what we gain.

But after all, it's the anti_American thing to do!

China & Russia are all for it!

ahhh..it's always so fun to lay all the blame on the politicians, but both of you forgot that it takes two parties to sign a mortgage.

people who bought homes at obviously hyper-inflated prices at or beyond the limits of their borrowing ability are also to blame. they get half the blame for trashing our economy...

yikes! bad choice... Russia has a veto on the security council they would just block any action at all...

i like the UN and all, but those are the folks that watched hundreds of thousands get murdered in Rwanda cuz they couldn't be bothered to agree on the definition of genocide...

NATO can act without the consent of the UN, in fact, we are obliged by our own word to defend other NATO members...

You are too ignorant to understand there are many more parties than "two". I would try to explain it to you, but I don't have all night.
