The abortion mill was our last, best hope. Prepare to be overrun.

Typical democrat "baby killer" response. But then again you probably "Hate" babies too.

Some babies are predictably 10 Most Wanted fodder a few years later. If there was something we could do to change that sad surety I'd be for it.
In the future your ilk most desire, educated willing and able to work folks are consigned to a scrap heap and vilified as beggars.
What chance, then, will those born of generations of ill-educated, unemployable, and untrustworthy criminals have other than the 'See it-Want it-Take it' route to advancement?

What I don't get is some people are so protective of the unborn but once the unwanted child is born to some poor unwed mother no one is interested in the child or in finding ways to help him/her.

A "Slow road to recovery" for the peasants. C.E.O. salaries went up 34% so far this year.

Remember that saying "what goes up must come down"? Oddly enough, CEO pay doesn't appear to be subject to the same laws of physics that govern the rest of the rational world.
In fiscal 2010, total realized compensation of CEOs in the S&P 500 rose by a median 36.5%. In addition to some of the usual outrageous factors accompanying high levels of CEO compensation, note that some of the CEOs on the top of the heap in 2010 took the money and ran.
A good year for CEOs
GMI, the leading independent provider of corporate governance and ESG ratings and research, has released its ninth annual CEO Pay Survey for 2011. Beyond the 36.5% increase in the surveyed companies' chief executives' pay, extra perks awarded to S&P 500 leaders rose 11% on a year-over-year basis in 2010

So did your taxes......8.5 million bond, Baddams got you this year and Sinnott will get you in 2012.
$3.300 yearly taxes on $100,000 shack.

Maybe Kurre didn't know that economic development genius Kim Green has been on the case for 6 years and just got promoted. We'll be a powerhouse soon.

The mayor's of your city was voted a 43% raise. Guess that's ok because they can always raise taxes to pay for it.

A fetus ain't a 'baby', butt-boy.

Prove it. Conservatives give more to charity than libs, plus churches offer lots of help for those in need.
Support for big, useless government isn't the same as actually giving or doing yourself.
How many liberals run centers counseling women suffering from post abortion trauma?
Why do liberals only support the abortionists and never the mothers?
Ha ha ha
#40 million dead

What charity? Bible printing? haHaHa. Churches offer conversion. Big help. Especially for those who don't believe but will say anything for a meal. haHaHa.
40 million dead? Sperm or eggs due to masturbation or the woman's curse? Aren't sperm and eggs "alive"?
haHaHa. You're a retard that your Momma shoulda flushed and wiped her butt after. haHaHa.

Tax his land, Tax his bed, Tax the table at which he's fed
Tax his tractor, Tax his mule, teach him taxes Are the rule.
Tax his cow, Tax his goat, Tax his pants, Tax his coat.
Tax his ties, Tax his shirt, Tax his work, Tax his dirt.
Tax his tobacco, Tax his drink, Tax him if he tries to think.
Tax his cigars, Tax his beers, if he cries, then Tax his tears.
Tax his car, Tax his gas, Find other ways To tax his ass
Tax all he has then let him know That you won't be done Till he has no
When he screams and hollers, Then tax him some more, Tax him till He's good
Then tax his coffin, Tax his grave, Tax the sod in which he's laid.
Put these words upon his tomb,' Taxes drove me to my doom...'
When he's gone, do not relax, It's time to apply The inheritance tax.

If taxes drove you to your doom you were obviously a failure at creating income, true?

A mother is someone who's gestated a conception into a living breathing...parasitic Access Card abuser? What DO you call them?
