not really. In Oakland pro-lifers put up billboards stating "black is beautiful" in an attempt to lower abortion rates for blacks in that community. They were forced to take them down. Not much has changed.
The same thing happened in NY-Al Notsosharpton had a fit and took credit for removing them.

<quoted text>Well let's see son, you people threw Obama under the bus for getting support from the Annenberg Foundation even though they do good work and the founder is a life long republican.
Based on your 'standards,' you are the original pigs and have worked diligently to hold on to that title with your lives.
Your problem is you let your politics and prejudices get the better of you.... it simply overpowers your ability to think rationally.
Kvetch likes to name drop to build up her low self-esteem. Living vicariously through others is all she's got. Remember Breitbart? Fact is, when an individual donates $500,000 to someone's campaign it's not an altruistic move. They are buying accessibility and a voice in the decision making of government. That's just they way it works. Certainly doesn't make the Annenberg Foundation or Diane Hendricks any less generous and humanitarian. That concept is often loss in the discussion.

This is in response to Flacks post #1104804:
"Researchers do admit that these numbers might be flawed. They wrote in the report that most states donít have abortion rate data based on race/ethnicity, "
I guess you didn't read that sentence! What point are you trying to make? Yesterday you were posting welfare statistics claiming that more black women were on welfare than whites;
are you saying that black women should be prohibited from obtaining abortions?
If they have the babies and cannot support them; they will go on welfare; and you will disparage them. You will then post statistics that black children from single mothers do poorly in school; get suspended more often.
I applaud those young women who have chosen abortion rather than bring a child into this world that they cannot take care of.
It's the responsible thing to do, no matter what race or ethnicity. You seem hung up on black people. Perhaps you should really do some research on the arrest rates of young black males; creating a large group of felons. Creating felons allows the government and everyone else to legally discriminate against these people for life. Can't get a job, an apartment, a loan. What the hell do you people want anyway?
You don't want them to have birth control, you don't want them to get pregnant, you don't want them to have an abortion, you don't want them to have a baby out of wedlock, you won't want them to have a baby and go on welfare, you lock up all the men and make sure that they can't support their children....and on and on and on and on.
that is the cycle of a sick mind. I'm going to post a letter from the lead pubic defender in Broward County.
In the first place I don't care if they have and use birth control. I just don't want to pay for it. Pay for it yourself. Second I don't care if you abort your future. Less people I will have to support. Third, Why do woman think they can spread their legs and get pregnant and then expect me( who wasn't there, got no pleasure from it)to pay for it. Here's an idea. Don't have a baby till you can afford it like we did.

"The Fed knows that the U.S. economy is not recovering," Schiff said. "It simply is being kept from collapse by artificially low interest rates and quantitative easing. As that support goes, the economy will implode."
"The crisis is imminent," Schiff said. "I don't think Obama is going to finish his second term without the bottom dropping out. And stock market investors are oblivious to the problems."
Is this just too hard to imagine or talk about?
What if Schiff is right? I wasn't sure we were going to survive the first four years. But Obamacare is here, the economy is not recovering nearly fast enough, the deficit is off the charts, and the other shoe has to drop eventually.
Hopefully, not until the GOP has the reins again in Congress. But what if the loons on here still manage to represent the wrong people being voted back in? It didn't seem possible in 2012. But look what happened.

IRS Exec....spends $450 a day to fly to and from work...

"One IRS official, labeled "Executive B" in the report, traveled to Washington, D.C. a total of 282 days in Fiscal Year 2012, claiming almost $127,000 in travel costs.(That's $450/day if you do the math.)

In FY 2011, "Executive B" traveled to Washington 238 days, with total travel costs of almost $116,000."

It's not just the economy going south that I'm worried about. It's also the uncertainties on the world stage. It's like the whole world is holding its breath waiting for the sound of the thud of a shoe dropping. If Russia doesn't prompt another world war, Iran becoming nuclear will. Israel once showed restraint under U.S. guidance, but they have gone rogue and have very itchy trigger fingers. Not to mention the ongoing terror threat that could make 9/11 look like a practice run.

We live in very perilous times on all fronts. And the liberal loons on here just pick their noses and fling their boogers at everyone they don't like for trying to warn them.

The latest AP poll shows:
Poll: Obamaís disapproval rating hits a new high

What will the sheeple think if they wake up enough to find out Obammy's even given away control of the Internet?

"Negative views of President Obama have hit a new high, according to a poll
.
The AP-GfK poll shows 59 percent of Americans now disapprove of Obama -- a point higher than the previous high set in December.

Obama's approval rating stands at 41 percent. That's the second-lowest figure the poll has ever found.

Part of Obama's problems appear to be related to foreign policy: The poll shows Americans disapprove of his handling of the situation in Ukraine 57-40 and disapprove of how he handles relationships with other countries 58-40.

In January, Americans were evenly split on Obama's diplomacy skills.

The poll was conducted Thursday through Sunday.

Nearly six in ten Americans now disapprove of President Obama's job performance, with just 41 percent giving him a thumbs-up. That's the top line result of a new Associated Press national poll, representing Obama's worst performance in the history of the survey.

Obama didn't fare any better on most issues, earning poor marks on his handling of the economy (39/59), the federal budget (36/63), immigration (38/61), and foreign affairs (40/58).

The survey reveals a sharp deterioration in the president's personal favorability, which dropped to (42/51).

Bizarrely, the AP appears to not have asked any questions about Obamacare, despite any number of news hooks -- including the impending (but extended) enrollment deadline.

CBS News' latest poll did ask about Obamacare, however. It showed public approval of the health law underwater (41/53), the exact same margin as this week's brutal Morning Consult poll. That survey noted that undecided likely 2014 voters disapprove of Obamacare by a 40 point margin.

Obama is upside-down on healthcare approval (40/56) in the CBS poll, in which respondents said the current healthcare sign-up process is going poorly by nearly a two-to-one margin. A fresh Fox News poll also contains unwelcome news for the White House, with Obama's overall job approval sucking wind at (40/53).

Fox polled two issues related to American prestige:

* the cancellation of our space shuttle program (the US has struck a deal to pay Russia roughly $71 million per astronaut, per space flight, because we currently lack the capability to launch our own people into space),

* and the Obama administration's decision to transfer control of the internet from the United States to an international body.

Isn't it better to be prepared for the worst than surprised by it?

No one is hoping things around more than me. But it's not going to happen as long as this president is still leading us down the path of destruction.

So it's probably better to be prepared.

You are a flat liar, you post constantly articles that you don't give credit to the author in the hopes that someone, anyone will think that you are smarter than you actually are. Your continuous degrading of all that don't agree with your mindless BS with your libtard comments are a sad reflection on you far more than others. There is little doubt in my mind that you are the typical wannabe that most of society has looked down upon. And a stone racist, like most baggers.
