democratic candidates for President are solidly pro-abortion:
1. they said they would appoint pro-abortion judges
2. they said they would spend more tax dollars for abortions
3. they said they would veto pro-life legislation

I like how McCain and Hillary feign outrage over Obama's comment. None of the three candidates could care less about the American public. They are all predictable self-serving politicians who will say anything to get into office.

Jim, you have to concede that if John McCain had been at a closed-to-the-public meeting and had expressed that the public is "bitter" and "clings to religion," you'd tear him apart. But Barackstar gets a free pass.

This wasn't an open-air meeting or debate. This wasn't a statement that times are hard on America. It was a back-room bashing of the average American's state of mind and beliefs. Shame on anyone who can't see the good things religion have done for America. Shame on anyone who can't see the optimism of the American spirit.

Kentucky Logic

Ky. cigarette tax hike favored by half

Just over half of Kentucky residents favor increasing the state sales tax on cigarettes by 25 cents, a new statewide poll finds.

Support for the increase was highest among adults in Northern Kentucky, results show.

Most supporters – 74 percent – favor increasing the cigarette tax by as much as 75 cents a pack, the first Kentucky Health Issues Poll found.


Riding Out the Recession: Insurance Helps
Building Strength and Muscle without Illegal Substances
Educators No. 1 Online Graduate School Program

About half of the tax increase supporters would like to see the additional money go to expand Medicaid coverage in the state, results showed.

Well said 3:03, more reasons to vote for Democratic candidates! If legal abortion is taken away, we'll go back to the days of back-alley abortions, and wire-hangars; this, alas, is still too true in many third-world nations where abortion is still illegal.

I like Borgman. Even when
I don't agree with him.
As far as I'm concerened this cartoon is his only vice.

"This cartoon is his only vice"

A bit of a groaner, but true.

You are so despicably pro-Obama that even when he screws up and he admits it, you try to defend him.

Working class Americans may be hurt by the economy, but to call them bitter is an insult. Bitter implies holding grudges, vengeful, and such.

Your pro-Obama stances have really annoyed me so far, but this one really angers me.

maybe we should follow Atlanta's lead and instead of praying for life-giving water, we should all get down on our hands and needs and pray for oil!!

Not bitter. Just lacking in their own ability to be articulate and creatively conversational about something besides their own agenda.

I thought BarackObamaLamaDingDong's comment was tellingly inciteful as to how he really views us working folks. Whether times are good or bad, I've always clung to God and guns. Neither has ever let me down.

 
at 4/16/08, 11:17 AM Anonymous Anonymous said...

to the pro-abortion lobby here...how many abortions were performed per year prior to Roe v Wade,1973? can you find some stats...? I have a suspicion they didn't approach the 1M a year performed currently in America...talk about a slaughterhouse.

 
at 4/16/08, 11:19 AM Blogger Philip Shade said...

LOL, good one Jim.

In that speech Obama said that people were bitter and cling to guns, religion, and other sentiments because they don't trust the government. "They take refuge in their faith and their community, and their family, and the things they can count on"

And I think you can see a lot of that in the blog comments as well.

i think the fat lady just sang, as in there's nothing more to say here. obama spoke an ugly truth, almost as if he had just pointed out that the king isn't wearing any clothes...

If the vise was labeled Enquirer with declining circulation on one side
and declining ad revenues on the other, then it would be more truthful.

More of democrat agenda from Jim. Hey, when you are the last one to
leave please turn off the lights.

ANON 3:03!

I am a father to an 8 month young baby girl. the most beautiful person in my world. I would give my life for her. Having said that, I personally agree that people that have abortions are among the most disgusting people that walk this earth. After having a child i can say that now more than ever. I would DIE for my daughter. Tell me though, I have harped on the fact that republicans are against abortion for a long time however, what have they even done about it? To vote for a party for an issue that i believe that you yourself even know is not going to be changed how does it make any sense?

Also, Antonio E. Gonzalez
Los Angeles, CA!

I dont know if the whole coat hanger thing is so bad because it effects the mother too, but as far as i am concerned... anybody who is out to ruin the possibility of life for the sake of their body being theirs gets what they deserve.

I personally know multiple people who have given their child to adoption.
Some people make me SICK!

Mike from- thankfully my mother and our mothers gave us all our opportunities! (please respond)

Despondent is a better word than bitter. Saying bitter is like name-calling, and more importantly, the comment "essentialized" (i.e. generalized) the working class as a bitter bunch who should vote for him because they hold grudges. When people say stuff like that about a group, sometimes they start to doubt themselves even further, as if Barack Obama knows better how the working class feels than the people themselves.

it just shows obama's ignorance; he claims to be an american and he isn't tuned in to reality; does he watch american idol?

11:17 AM: As with most illicit activities, the actual number is nearly impossible to come by; as study of emergency room visits for certain injuries, arrests of doctors, and eyewitness accounts would help. The key here is, that post Roe v. Wade abortion was safe, legal, and rare. So, most likely, the pre-RvW numbers were higher; as a current example, Brazil (where abortion is illegal) has three times as many estimated abortions as the US, even with half the population . . .

1:26 PM: You love your daughter, great, the daughter chose! I've known women who had legal abortions, and the one who talked about it said it was a painful decision, but one she felt was necessary. The key here, is she had a legal choice.

If you don't like abortion, try to set up programs to help pregnant women with their decision, maybe sponsor a specific woman through her pregnancy, make clear-and-easier the other choices available. Making it illegal just drives it underground, making things worse for all. Yes, you can be pro-life and pro-choice at the same time . . .

Reality Check...so you're saying more abortions were performed pre- R v W?
wow...morals weren't as far in the toilet then...1M a year is a few Cincinnati's...I don't think abortion was at epidemic levels in America.There would've been female carcases everywhere if abortions were as risky as we're constantly they were...women hemorrhaging up and down the block.

But whatever...if there's a blessed sacrament for the LEFT it's abortion.
It's here to stay.You could put 9 Right leaning SC Justices on the bench,an R congress and senate with an R pres and it'd still be the law of the land...it's way to hot an issue to ever re-examine seriously.
