In 2008, Planned Parenthood provided nearly 11 million medical services for three
million people, and helped to prevent approximately
595,000 unintended pregnancies. Seventy-two
percent of our clients have incomes at or below 150
percent of the federal poverty level. As of
September 2010, our more than 825 health centers
are operated by 87 affiliates, which have a presence
in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
Sexuality Education
In 2008, more than 2,000 affiliate staff and volunteer
educators provided educational programs to more
than 1.2 million people of all ages and in a variety of
settings — from preschools to universities, from
prisons and social service programs to religious
institutions and civic organizations. Programs
focused on more than 28 different content areas,
such as AIDS/HIV and contraception/family planning
— including abstinence, family life education,
parent-child communication, puberty education,
safer sex, and sexual orientation/homophobia.
Clearly you care about the unborn and that's fine. What do you want for the child after it's born. Are you prepared to take care of it? What if the child needs public assistance. Do you vote for politicians that want to cut funding for social services?
No one is proabortion. However it is legal and unfortunately sometimes necessary. If safe abortions aren't available to the disadvantaged they will seek out unsafe remedies.
having sex and having babies are inalienable rights, right?(life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness)

going to stangers and asking for HELP with the consequences of such actions is NOT a right, right?

when such assistance is rendered, it is called 'charity', right?

since when has the government, fed/state/whatever, been AUTHORIZED or EMPOWERED to be in the charity business?

during the days of our Founding, when the NEW governments of the NEW States were asked for 'charitiable' funds for a Public hosptial, B. Franklin, one of our Founding Fathers, said NO! to such government actions and went after Private donors and monies to the tune of $25,000!

the fact that the People rejected the concept of GOVERNMENT charity works from Day One tells me that WELFARE was NEVER intended by the writters and framers and Founders of either OUR Constitution or Country, PERIOD.

also, such things as Debtor Prisons were also NOT supported(the flip side of charity!).

do you really want the FG minding YOUR personal, economical business? what it GIVES, IT can also TAKE.

YOUR Forefathers and mothers, like mine, fought for and ENVISIONED a Land Free from as MUCH GOVERNMENT intervention as possible.

to stand WITH Big Govt is an INSULT and AFFRONT to THEM and OUR JOINT History.

IT IS UN-AMERICAN.

the difference and divide cannot be more basic than that.

you/we cannot give something to one citizen without first, or last, TAKING it from another citizen.

this idea, or SCAM, of 'free' stuff has got to be addressed HONESTLY.

go to an entitlement 'family' of three and tell them, times are tuff, we need to TAKE from your piece of the pie and give MORE to the 'family' of 5 or 6 or 7. or, realistically, go the 15 million entitlement 'families' and tell them that since we have 17 millions needy families AND NO MORE FUNDS, the first 15m get less to spread the 'charity' to the new 2m!!

no body even suggests that concept of 'sharing', do they?

therein lies the TRUE falsitity of the ENTIRE FG as charity premise: pretty soon, the FG/govt runs OUT OF DONORS!

My response was related to whether or not Mr. Zimmerman would have shot someone of another race in the same situation. In my opinion, he would have. He did not shoot Mr. Martin just because he was black. He shot Mr. Martin as he was being pummeled and had no means of escape.
So you believe the prosecution's narrative even though they were not able to prove it?
Mr. Zimmerman obviously shot Mr. Martin. There is no doubt about that. The question is whether or not Mr. Zimmerman felt his life was in danger. It is MY OPINION based on the EVIDENCE that he did.
My "hook-line-and-sinker acceptance of the defense narrative" is based on the evidence presented. If evidence had been presented otherwise, I would have accepted it also.
Not all of the evidence or facts of which we are aware was permissible in court, but that doesn't mean we aren't aware of it. If you listened to the tapes and read the interview transcripts and gave credence to the voice analysts (you know, the same folks the government used to authenticate Osama Bin Laden and others' voices), you didn't necessarily reach the same conclusion the jury did. But, the public knows just as they knew Zimmerman's history that didn't come into play in the courtroom. I should say most of the public knows. You may be the exception.

You were unashamed and unapologetic no matter how many times you were asked about it. You can pretend to be anybody in gray box form, but everybody here knows who and what you are. You aren't violent? Right.
Funny how he accuses us of threatening to use violence and ignores several days worth of posts from one of his "friends" threatening to come to my house in the middle of the night and shoot me and my husband.

Not to mention all this nonsense about him having already been to my home and taken pictures of me without my knowledge, or the guy that's supposed to be lurking behind both my house and yours "watching" us and "waiting" for his "opportunity".

Ever notice how easy it is to completely destroy his credibility?

The Federal Reserve Is Bailing Out Foreign Banks … More than the American People or Economy
http://www.globalresearch.ca/the-federal-rese...
We’ve extensively documented that the Federal Reserve is intentionally locking up bank money so that it is not loaned out to Main Street. Specifically – due to Fed policy – 81.5% of all money created by quantitative easing is sitting there gathering dust in the form of “excess reserves”… instead of being loaned out to help Main Street or the American economy.
And as of year to date to 2011 over 780 US banks bankrupted so far and 2 or 3 banks pending US bankruptcy every month .

So while in my boredom I took a quick inventory of the people around me and couldn’t help but notice that they were prominently foreign.

why some folks do not get that the WHOLE purpose of having a WRITTEN Constitution is TO LIMIT THE POWERS OF THE FG.... FOREVER... AND IN WRITING.

some posters. like WA, claim to SUPPORT the Const and THAT concept and then post WORDS AND IDEAS that are 180 degrees off... consistantly!

others claim to be supporters and have superior KNOWLEDGE of what the Framers MEANT when THEY wrote the words. how does one 'have' that 'superior knowledge' of what dead men meant almost 200 years after the fact? and, DESPITE HOW THEY GOVERNED FOR DECADES AFTERWARDS?

You have rich greed and you have poor greed. Then you have the middle class who are thankful for their lot in life and actually get what it is to live in the USA.

I am beginning to see where several posters that you referenced as being people who are unwilling to give of themselves but want others to be understanding and giving towards others. Life does not work that way and neither does the virtues of the constitution and the bill of rights. Unfortunately we have that kind of mindset in the House of Congress as well as in society. Some actually think the FG is elected into office to do their thinking instead of representing us. I suppose those who believe there are things that come free in life have no problems letting others do the thinking for them. I think some of the posters here insist on others accepting their ideology. If you don't, you are labeled an idiot, a moron, a drunk, clueless, liar and the list keeps growing like the FG.

The changes are coming about personal interest groups all of which are minority and they are using bigotry and racism to further their agenda. The growth of FG needs to be stopped if there is to be any hope for the survival of our country and the futures of the next generations to come.

People need to be adapting to our constitution, bill of rights which is our culture if they want to come here. They need to leave their racism, bigotry and prejudices in their country and stop trying to change our ways and our expectations of them and those that are Americans of minority status need to do the same. This self pity and crying many rivers needs to come to a halt.

Where has the American pride gone?

No, actually, as usual, you're wrong and since you brought up the security clearance thing again, you were wrong about the too. The FBI doesn't do those checks.
You didn't argue that you were "told" that the FBI did the checks until much later) you argued that I was wrong and it WAS the FBI that did those checks.
I am starting to remember why I stopped replying to your posts in the beginning.
You are simply relentless in your ignorance.
In one of your previous rants you mentioned same-sex marriage in respect to several specific countries which you referred to as "backwards thinking" "Catholic Hispanic Americas".
I've decided that despite the fact that you won't understand, or accept, the truth, I'm going to put it out there anyway.
Mexico...
Same-sex marriages are legally performed in Mexico City and in the state of Quintana Roo.
Same-sex civil unions are legally performed in Mexico City and in the states of Coahuila and Colima.
...same-sex marriages performed within Mexico are recognized by the 31 states without exception...
As of 26 August 2012, a Mexican federal court judge has ordered the state of Oaxaca to perform same-sex marriages...
In February 2013 Colima State authorities started approving same-sex marriage applications...
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Same-sex_marriag...
----------
Cuba...
Cuba is on the verge of becoming the first Caribbean state to extend the legal rights of marriage to same-sex couples and has recently passed a series of laws that prevent discrimination on the basis of gender and orientation.
"Cuba mulls legalising gay marriage
Cuba could pass legislation allowing same-sex marriage later this year, according to the daughter of President Raúl Castro..."
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/cen...
----------
Panama...
No legal recognition.
----------
And there you have it, one more example of how much you talk and how little you know.
legal and social are two diff things, Jax.

the vast majority of Hispanics, both in Eur(Spain) and the New World are Catholic.

what is the Catholic thinking on Homosexuality?

what is YOUR State's LRGAL view on Gay Unions or Marriages, Jax?

you and I both know the answer to that....

think it is gonna change any time soon, Jax?lol

remember the SC's OTHER ruling?lol

seems we have a Constitutional question looming, don't it?lol

btw, even after I conceded your point on WHAT the internet says about WHO/WHAT conducts background checks, you NEVER conceded that MY point was WHAT I WAS TOLD. you're such a BIG Man, Jax, you just could never say 'My bad.'...

that's the diff between me and you... CHARACTER.

that, and the fact that I've been LEGALLY married in ALL States for over 40 years!!LOL

oh, and that MY wife gave me two sons during those same forty years and you've given your 'husband', what?????

ain't NATURE a bitch?lol

The shiftless, yet able bodied, who at every corner of life exist for assistance from the government, put us on a course of destruction as a free society. When someone with a gun (government) can force you to contribute (taxes) to assist the lazy and indolent, then the bottom of the hill is not far away.

I got tired of all the nonsense that goes on here and stopped posting for a while, but being who they are, the trolls tend to follow several of us wherever we go (even to other websites) so I decided to come back for a brief visit and see if giving them a target here at troll central would help keep them a little more "contained" and it has.

I came back with one specific goal in mind and after a single post, that goal was achieved.

The three day floor show of histrionics that followed has simply been a mildly entertaining bonus.

It might be a good idea for some of them to start wondering what I might have up my sleeve as an encore.

Anyway, we're about to run to town. I'll be back later to wrap up this little excursion into the twilight zone of topix.

Hope you're having a great day. We've got beautiful whether here.
