That's what happens when right wing fools depend on Fox for their information. The Blumenthal bill has nothing to do with late term abortions. The Blumenthal bill is intended to prevent the harmful effects on women's health that the rapid expansion of state abortion regulations, known as Targeted Regulations of Abortion Provider (TRAP) laws, has had. TRAP laws target abortion clinics for restrictions not imposed on other clinics that provide procedures with similar risk, like colonoscopies. In fact, such onerous and constitutionally questionable regulations have already driven many abortion clinics in the states to close -- which, according to Whole Woman's Health CEO Amy Hagstrom Miller, puts "more women at risk for later term abortions or for illicit abortions outside the medical community."
Got that stupid? This bill actually prevents late term abortions. Twits like you can't seem to grasp that when laws make it harder for women to get safe legal abortions that they'll seek out the back alley butchers like Kermit Gosnell.
You're take on Obama's position on abortion is just another one of your damned lies. The legislation that he voted against as an Illinois state senator was a blatant attempt to intimidate doctors who were performing legal medical procedures. Babies born alive as a result of these were already protected under state law and Obama supported federal legislation affording then the same protections nationwide.
You're an idiot Carol.
government slug Dupie supports substandard abortion clinics....more Doctor Gosnell butcher shops for ghetto blacks......no problem....bigger profits for Planned Parenthood.....

England v India: Time for hosts' old guard to stand up and be counted, says Michael Vaughan
Former England captain offers his verdict on faltering squad ahead of third Test against India

England's Ian Bell must stop feeling sorry for himself when the third Test begins against India, according to Michael Vaughan Photo:

SAM ROBSON He clearly has an issue outside off stump but it is not long ago that he was scoring a hundred at Headingley. He has to look to score and not just survive. Be patient against Bhuvneshwar Kumar. See him off and get the feet moving. Finally, be busy running between the wickets.
GARY BALLANCE Don’t change a thing. Ballance should play as he plays and deliver that same calm aura. Be greedy for runs. He is playing the ball late and it is working. His method looks unorthodox with a backward step but it has worked for him since he was 15 and he has always averaged over 50 in every format. He has honed his own technique over six or seven years so he trusts it which is why he is playing well so early in his Test career.
IAN BELL Needs to stop feeling sorry for himself and drop the 'poor old me syndrome’. Stop thinking that he keeps getting a ball that bounces or scoots along the ground. The more you think like that the more it happens. Also stop trying to be the big man. He is not. Just be the Ian Bell from last year when he exuded a calm presence and won the Ashes for England. He has the experience to know how to handle a rough patch and can come through it.

Federal regulators let utilities gouge customers
Despite obscene profits from monopoly power, government officials ignore evidence and squash challenges
July 25, 2014 6:00AM ET
by David Cay Johnston @DavidCayJ
The profit margins that federal regulators set for utilities should be decreasing, given the long downward drift of interest rates and the shrinking cost of capital.
Bizarrely, the opposite is happening: Utilities are raking in stunning profits at the expense of consumers.
Now the first in a raft of cases asserting that the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) is letting utilities gouge customers by setting egregiously high rates of return may finally get a hearing.
The commissioners
Since utilities are legal monopolies with no market to discipline their pricing, only the vigilance of regulators stops them from causing irreparable economic harm by stifling growth, draining wealth from customers and distorting investment. Court rulings say FERC commissioners must “guard the consumer against excessive rates.”
The legal standard for setting utility rates is known as “just and reasonable.” Profits and prices are supposed to be balanced so both investors and customers get fair treatment.
FERC commissioners, however, disregard the just and reasonable standard, routinely ignore evidence and act more as agents of utilities than fair-minded regulators.
Who are these commissioners? Acting Chairman Cheryl LeFleur was acting CEO of the National Grid utility company. Philip D. Moeller has been the chief Washington lobbyist for utilities Alliant Energy and Calpine. Commissioner John R. Norris is a utility lawyer. Commissioner Tony Clark is a career regulator whose biography emphasizes that “he oversaw regulatory proceedings that permitted more than $5.5 billion in new investment in North Dakota through expanded wind, coal and oil and gas infrastructure.”
Absent from the commission is anyone who represents the rights of consumers.
The commissioners, all likely future employees of utilities, have erected what so far are impenetrable barriers to challenging FERC’s blatantly illegal conduct. That may appear to be a harsh judgment, but the record supports this.
Profit raking
In the first case among those underway, FERC awarded Bangor Hydro-Electric Co. of Maine a profit of 10.57 percent on equity invested in a transmission line.
By contrast, over the past 17 years the after-tax return for all nonfinancial domestic businesses averaged 8.85 percent, the federal Bureau of Economic Analysis reported last month, with a 4.3 percent average rate for utilities. And high-quality corporate bond yields are currently 4.58 percent, Treasury Department data show — well below the 30-year average of 7.48 percent.
FERC does not set consumer electricity rates.....

Yes Carol, the Democratic party has changed; for the better. Back in the 60's and 70's there were still racist Democrats located primarily in the South. Now that area is solidly Republican.
Democrats are closer to what JFK described as someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people-their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights and their civil liberties.
Jim Crow may once have been a Democrat but now he's called James Crow Esquire and he's a Republican. He's changed tactics from police dogs and fire hoses to voter suppression laws and redistricting.
The Republicans have regressed from the progressive policies of Lincoln and Teddy Roosevelt. They want to turn Lincoln's government of the people, by the people, for the people to government of the corporations, by the corporations and for the corporations.
You're an idiot Carol; you always have been and always will be!
DemoKKKrats are a radical leftwing collection of special interest groups and crony capitalists, dedicated to sucking the blood of the middle class to benefit the poor and the super-rich......

Typical day at the office for a Liberal/Democrat!!
Black DemoKKKrat in handcuffs and shackles

DALLAS — Dallas County Commissioner John Wiley Price and three associates have pleaded not guilty after being arrested by FBI agents Friday, ushering in a new chapter in what is arguably the most high-profile public corruption investigation in Dallas history.

Sarah Saldaña, U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Texas, announced the specific charges at an 11 a.m. news conference. She said for more than a decade, Price sold the power of his office in "a shocking betrayal of public trust."

A 106-page federal corruption indictment, filed under seal on July 23, is now public. It outlines a million dollar web of mail fraud, tax fraud, bribery and other malfeasance allegedly led by Price, who faces up to 30 years in prison if convicted.

Also charged is Price's top assistant, Dapheny Fain, who surrendered to the FBI Friday morning, according to her attorney Tom Mills.

Political consultant Kathy Nealy, a close Price associate, is also a defendant in the case. Her attorney could not be reached. Nealy was expected to surrender Friday.

A fourth defendant, Christian Lloyd Campbell, is also charged. According to the indictment, he is a consultant who worked with Nealy.

Price was arrested at an office building north of downtown Dallas around 8 a.m.; it's unclear what he was doing there.

Price, Nealy, Fain and Campbell made their initial appearances before U.S. Magistrate Judge Paul Stickney Friday afternoon at the federal courthouse in downtown Dallas.

They came into the courtroom wearing handcuffs and shackles. All four of them pleaded "Not Guilty." Price was dressed in business attire when he confidently and adamantly claimed his innocence.
