<quoted text>Sheeple is unwell. He does not want to address the problems blacks have created all by themselves. They have shown the world how violent they can be. On the other hand, they make good warriors so maybe we can enlist all the blacks in the ghetto and send them over to Syria at obama's bidding.
Wow, nothing racist there either......

So enlighten us. Besides being good warriors, what else are blacks good at?

Let me guess-

Dancing?
Sports?
Watermelon eating contests?

C'mon, all the rest of the racist are just dying to know....

I realize that, but I was trying to dumb down the concept and definition of abort for you. Apparently even that is too much for your feeble mind to handle.
I understand that. Calling it off before pregnancy occurs is still aborting pregnancy, however.
Lol, says the idiot who can not understand the analogy.
Except of course that it's not; it's called preventing a pregnancy.

<quoted text>Why do you feel a need to interpret the statistics into something which they DO NOT SAY EITHER WAY?

If you want to know how monogamous black fathers are, then look for a statistic on the percentage of black fathers who are monogamous.

If you want to know if black fathers are sticking around to raise their kids, then look for a statistic on the percentage of unmarried black fathers raising their children.

It's simply lazy to interpret a statistic to say something which it simply does not say.

Of course if your intent is to make assumptions to back up your racist opinions, then I can see why you tend to interpret facts into something they aren't.
I don't. I, unlike you, can think for myself. I can also understand what statistics mean. Something you apparently have difficulty with.

Lmao, you really like picking statistics that rely on people telling the truth. Something you can't even do. How would any government agency know how many men are monogamous, other than to ask and hope they are truthful? Are you really that dumb?

Show me that statistic and I will look at it. Provide a link to it, so we can all look at it.

I know you are too scared and intentionally ignorant to do so, but read this: http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/viewSubCat...

Good to know.

Sure it is. Sure it is preventing a pregnancy, in the same way aborting a bombing mission prevents the bombing.

It is time to stop any and all forms of welfare, free medical, help with utilities, and all forms of charity. No more checks, and no more food stamps. Zero. Cut them from the books. I know it will hurt some people who are legitimately in need, but we'll just have to sacrifice those few to weed out the many who do nothing but take, take, take and who would injure themselves trying to run from a job.

After that law is enacted, make the mandatory sentence for theft the loss of a hand. Those two incintives would put more people back in search of jobs, make the "I will work for food" a serious commitment.

Imagine the riots that would erupt from that.
I agree with the goal, but suspect it would be necessary to phase those programs out over 2-5 years. I don't agree with the parasites taking from those programs, but they are just taking advantage of the system the socialist liberals created and maintain.
The rest of the story is, we all need to STOP buying products made in China NOW. That would allow factories to be moved back to the US over that 2-5 year period, so jobs are available for the former parasites as they lose their free ride.

Of course freight trains are driven by electricity, but it's HOW that electricity is generated which matters. Most locomotives in the US are diesel.
Oh so you finally looked it up and now imply that you already knew all locomotives are driven by electricity.

Classic.

You really think that is feasable?
Did our sudden demand for wares in China cayse those jobs to outsource in the first place? If not then how will boycotting their wares do any good?

What is the biggest cause for US companies to move operations abroad?

Don't get me wrong, there is a long list of changes that must be made. But I do think buying American Made and boycotting the inferior, toxic, planned obsolescence products from China will help drive manufacturing back to the US.
The Unions and Big Government need to go for sure. But even if they do not, I would rather pay twice as much for a product that will last 10 times as long, and not poison me.
What we really need is another party that stands its ground on the 20 or so issues that must be addressed. A party that will not allow the cancer of Democrats or Republicans to invade their ranks and steer the effort toward a berm.

No, you simply twist and interpret statistics to say something which they don't.

You are correct that many things can't be accurately measured, especially when it relies on people being truthful. But that applies to whites as well as blacks. I could just as easily claim the same statistics show 75% of whites are likely to cheat on their spouses.

Your bias obviously drives your interpretation of stats.

The simple fact you can't understand the difference between preventing a pregnancy and aborting a pregnancy proves you're not a real doctor.

You most definitely should stick to veterinary medicine where you can't hurt any people. Though I feel sorry for any animal you may treat.

Not buying from China won't bring back any jobs.
