You demosnstrate poor reading comprehension, Lyndi.
Nowhere did I say I have already decided who I'll vote for in 4 years.
All I said is that it's gratifying to see more Hillary fans (especially from right-wingers), and that SHE will appreciate YOUR vote.
Of course I haven't decided yet, and we don't even know who will be in the running. But know one thing: No matter the state of the nation in 4 years, there are certain people I will not support, no matter what. One of them is your little puppy Marco Rubio.
I do have some standards.
Lol. Puppy. So I still remember quite well when our gov (Crist) that lies almost as much as the dear leader thought he would wipe the floor with Rubio. Did all he could, even threw his party and many supporters under the bus, had every Fl. media and national run nonstop smears that continue today and still lost. I'll take the puppy over the fleas that occupy Washington these days. The gov. race here will be something. Just about every Sunday now all Florida papers are working hard to smear our new gov. The lastest is he is spending his own money. Gasp. Why do that when you can fleece the taxpayers?

One more clarification :) The kind of people I despise would mostly not bother to vote, let alone try to inform themselves on what the issues are or where the candidates stand on them. They just wouldn't care, as long as "THE MIDNIGHT GLOBE" is available. If they have to choose between watching a political debate between candidates, listening to a Beethoven symphony or another channel, or a Jerry Springer-type talk show, they'd pick the talk show.

I googled unemploment in California and this was the first thing that popped up.
"Unemployment California
How to File for Unemployment California Benefit
Unemployment California
If you are one of the 1 in 10 Californians who are presently unemployed, then you should take advantage of the unemployment California benefits.
It is important that you clearly understand the process of filing for unemployment in California – this way; you will be able to start collecting the benefits ASAP!
If you have a job and you are wondering why other unemployed Californians file for unemployment benefits. Well, you need to know that the government provides unemployment benefits to eligible unemployed workers while they are in search for a new job. The unemployment benefit is not exactly a fortune; it can be used by the beneficiaries in order to buy food, clothing and pay for their housing until they find work."
OMG you can't make this stuff up.
Hi, I'm Julia the liberal representative and the welcome girl from happy California.
We have friendly people, great weather and nice beaches.
And NO JOBS."
lol!
Reminds me of an add I saw a few months ago about food stamps. Really? We need to spend more taxpayer money to help people know this? Like you say, it would be funny if it wasn't so very sad.

Well said. Here is where I would say that the people that are elected many times are a good reflection of the nation today. They might have good qualifications but you better look good on Letterman. I watch C-Span more and I think as each year passes more that vote don't care much about policy, just make things look and sound good. Talk about transparency then do health care reform in the dark of night and look out anyone that questions it. Soundbite your taxes won't go up then party while your policy does just what you claim it wouldn't.

<quoted text>I don't doubt that some women regret their abortions, perhaps bitterly. But I could tell you just as many stories about those who don't regret them, and in fact were relieved....not depressed. I happen to be one of them. While I mourn the loss of those pregnancies I lost through miscarriage, the one I had terminated was mis-located, and would have been the end of me. Ectopic pregnancies kill. Mind you, the OB gave me very strong advice, but I ALWAYS had the choice of whether to abort, or take that chance. I was never told I HAD to terminate the pregnancy, even though the doc told me my chances for survival were very small - but that it was completely my decision. That decision left me alive to bear two sons, and that, my friend, I don't regret for a New York minute.

Yes, my situation was extreme, and so many here doubt that doctors would ever be prohibited from saving a woman's life from an ectopic pregnancy, but it happens already in many countries where abortion is completely illegal. And the laws being proposed here, which concern personhood, and 'destruction of evidence' DO NOT MENTION an exception for saving a woman's life.

http://jonathanturley.org/2013/01/25/new-mexi...
We can complacently say that such bills don't often become law, but the fact that laws such as this even make it to the Floor of the House, bodes ill for women's lives, and frankly, makes me livid.
It's for situations such as yours, Kat, that I reluctantly do think abortion should remain legal and safe. My heart doesn't like it, but in this case, my head must rule my heart. In a case where both mother and child will die if the pregnancy is not ended, and ending the pregnancy will save the mother's life, then ending the pregnancy should be done.(You may have noticed that my other post, the one you replied to, I said "NOT ALL abortions take place" for the reason you suggested and that I railed against).

If the baby cannot be saved, but aborting it will save the mother's life, then definitely save the mother's life.

SisterKL, you had no choice but to make the decision that you made. You didn't choose to terminate life, that life was unsustainable by the nature of the placement the baby never stood a chance. Your own life was at risk. I am not Catholic, I don't know what the viewpoint of the Church is regarding those instances but doing anything different than what you did would not be my advice.

The House and Senate debate all kinds of stupid things. It is the nature of the entity. Even if something is passed that seems rather sketchy there are courts that rush to stop its implementation.

I lost a child to miscarriage too. I sympathize with your losses. Every so often I think about how old that child would be that I lost. I wonder who the person is that is missing from our family.
Abortions due to rape and ectopic pregnancy are pretty rare. I am sad that so many women just see abortion as a big magic eraser that they can use to eliminate a bad decision.

I believe that abortion will always be legal in this country. I think the majority of people want it that way. My problem is with the need to use the taxpayer to fund it. There are people who will contribute to it the same way cancer research is contributed to. The government should not be in the business of eliminating it's citizens.
Excellent post, Pernie.

Presidential betting odds for Palin in 2012 same as they were for Obama two years before 2008 presidential election

4:46 PM October 13, 2010

The latest betting odds for the 2012 Presidential Election peg President Barack Obama as the favorite. But if the opening odds for the 2008 presidential election are any guide, 2012 could be the year Sarah Palin is elected president.

President Obama was given 10/1 odds of becoming the next president by Sportsbook.com numbers in early December 2006, identical odds to what Sportsbook now gives Palin for being elected the 45th President of the United States in 2012.

Two other major betting sites, BetUSA.com and 1800-Sports, a betting information site, have Palin at 10/1 odds of becoming the next president of the United States, while Bodog has Palin at 12/1.

http://dailycaller.com/2010/10/13/presidentia...

Clinton seems a safer bet than Palin from this far out, but this is American politics. My guess is that the odds makers and the predictors weren't seeing Nixon right after the Goldwater debacle of 1964.

Man we are having one heck of a squall line here with c.g. lightning. As this system moves up the eastern seaboard its going to be one heck of a snowstorm! This reminds me a bit of the blizzard in March 1993. It will be one for the records!

Maybe you should run for Congress...at least you understand that there are extenuating circumstances, which need to be provided for, when these laws are written.

So far, the current writers haven't included any.
