Your scenarios are the common causes for abortion. Even the atheist have life so this isn't really a religion issue. If you take all the women each year that have an abortion because of rape, incest or health reasons, you probably couldn't fill a bus. There are so many things in this country that I am not allowed to make a choice on, I wonder why I would be allowed to choose to end someone else's life.
really, so if they are the most common cause which means that a majority of abortions are caused by these means then what's the big deal? i just stated a fact ...is that so hard for you to take in... and when you take away freedom of choice and impose your own beleifs which are mostly accompanied by religion then YES this does become a religous issue... before roe vs wade and abortion was made leagal over 10,000 women a year died from those reasons...... and just what things are you not allowed to make a choice on here in america... and if abortion is made illegal that's just what you will be doing is making a choice to end someones life.the implementation of obamacare and the offering free contraceptive coverage has dropped the abortion rate in this country so that should be looked at as a positive by both sides.

Yep it was a good program. The depression in Arkansas didnt end until Orvil Fabus got the Boot and a decendent of John D Rockefeller was elected govenor. Winthrop Rockefeller spent a lot of his own money to improve the state.

It looks like they've settled in on 8% unemployment as the right amount to where they can continue their exploitation of the middle class.
looks like someones been watching too many episodes of mobb bosses ... grow up and join the real world.

Only Republican I've ever voted for, still have a couple of his campaign stickers. Great man for our State at the time and the first local politician I became interest in. WR truly served the best interests of the people of Arkansas.

Orval Faubus was a crook, built himself a very expensive 7,000 sq. ft. mansion in Huntsville, not the shack seen on postcards, while making 10 thousand bucks a year as governor.

Before rockefeller The high school students in most places had to buy their own school books, they where old out of date passed down and bartered & sold to the next grade, There wheren enough for all the baby boomers to have a book they had to share. rockefeller asked the legislature to fund the school books they refused. so the rockefeller foundiation bought new up to date school books for every student in arkansas. Winthrop Rockefeller paid to build many of our state parks. He cleaned up the gambling and Mob activity in hot springs. He cleaned up the corruption in the state police. I met him and talked my parents into voting for him. Dad was a yellow dog democrat. I became a republican because of Rockefeller.

No I'm not a racist but you are a dumbass Billy Bob. I was referring to Frank White, the second Republican Governor since reconstruction. I also voted for Dale Bumpers, an unknown lawyer from Charleston, Arkansas, one of the Democrats that wasn't a GOB at the time.

I see what the "plan" is but why do YOU believe it. There has been no budget in 4 years so how do you delegate spending? You know how much you are set to take in revenue (roughly $1.3 trillion) yet spending will far outpace that number by $1.4 trillion. I want to know, from you, how the extra $80 billion will offset the deficit. Simply pointing to someone elses document makes you look like you don't have a clue what you are talking about.

i believe it because i believe all the independant researchers, analyst, and journelist, which they figure to come up to about 40 billion dollars short which is a drop in the bucket over 10 years... look i do not buy into fear mongoring or telling someone they are wrong just because i don't want to take the time to crunch all the numbers ... all these sources are very credible that have crunched these numbers over and over and over... i already have a full time job i don't wanna spend hours figuring taxes... what i do know .. like i've said... is that taxes for people making 250,000 dollars will have the same rate as today... that's a fact... because 1. obama won the electorial vote 336-206 2. obama won the popular vote by over a million people maybe more i haven't checked 3. democrats picked up 2 seats and 2 indpendants and had 21 seats up for grabs while repubilcans lost 2 seats and only had 10 up for grabs... 4. democrats won the majority percentage of the house race total vote .. but due to gerrymanderd redistricting caused by the 2010 census republicans had enough seats to hold onto the majority... 3 out of 4 is enough "political capitol" to not need to compromise much , but dems are waiting on house republicans to come to the table since that's where all revenue bills originate... but they will probably stall like they did last time and raise the credit rating again ... and yet again commit treason they wont be held accountable for... several house republicans are even seeing the light but i bet bohener reigns them in... it's a sick and twisted world when a elected official loves his own party more than country that got them elected.

Then why didn't you just say that??? Nope your a racist and that was your meaning and intent by making that comment..... Now your being chicken sh*t about it and trying to back out of what you said. Be a man and stand by what you say or say nothing. You would get more credibility and respect that way.

You are right, I have not spent any time any mental health facilities, but would you have had it not been court ordered? Would you think that as mantas 2% of abortions are done for the reasons that causes that you are mentioning? I would think that 98% are performed for the convenience of the woman. I realize that you seem no need for personal responsibility.
Well Old Timer, the world is passing us by, it won't matter what you and I think much longer. Our petty differences got us into the mess, now we try to pretend it's somebodies else fault.
