I dunno. It was my impression that we don't treat any segment of the population unfairly; even the top 2% income bracket. Fact is that top 2% does more for this country than the other 98% combined. Are we sure we want to treat them unfairly by raising taxes on just them? Wealth redistribution is the liberal commie way of doing things. I'd like to think conservatives are better than that. If we need tax income that much; we need to tax everyone and not single out any group for extra taxation just because we don't belong to that group.

Obummer, the windbag in chief, continues to say he wants to tax people "like himself" more but we all know he won't be taxed more. He knows all the tricks on burying his money. Funny how he was just an upper middle class guy before becoming a politician and now, just a few years later, he is somehow a millionaire. Curious indeed.

When I saw the Acorn I immediately thought of the biggest Acorn supporter and one of the most corrupt members.


What do think of this girls new .22 cal long rifle?

Lance it is the law of the land. A woman has the right bynUS law to do what she wants. I am pro life but I would never tell a woman what she must do based on my opinion.

Gun availability is the law of the land as well. Personally I support the 2nd amendment but not when it comes to large magazined assault weapons. I therefore support a change in the law. The Republicans have had many opportunities to change the abortion law but have always been afraid of losing the elections so they say we are pro life but never stand up. Same goes for the 31 pro gun Politicians in DC. Stand up if you really think these type of weapons save lives. So far these gutless POS have remained silent.

Sorry bud but the Republican Party has become the talk tough but have no balls party

Legal abortions set the tone for how people behave sexually. If there are no consequences, and life is worthless as dictated by law, that's the message you send to our youth. I'm not into controlling someone's life either (I have a tough enough time controlling my own life), but I believe in passing good morals to the younger ones, who look up to us.

As far as guns, you could have them laying around in the streets, if you had no crazy people to grab them and use them, there would be no problem. The question is, how do you find the crazies before they go off? And when they do go off, do you want to be able to defend yourself, or just be a helpless victim? By the way, I don't own a gun, never had, but maybe one day I will - depending how my neighborhood turns out in the future.

The beginning to your second sentence explains perfectly the mentality issue in regards to abortion (or sex education in general). To think that legalizing abortion (or anything else related for that matter) removes consequences from sex is beyond ignorant. The ONLY thing that "removes" consequences is when one isn't aware that they exist. I.e. a lack of education.

Abortion IS a possible consequence of sex. While I can not speak for everyone, it is seldom a decision made lightly. It can also be a necessary means for certain individuals/couples when circumstances arise and a heart wrenching decision must be made. I would suggest you take that in to account when speaking about it. Nothing in life is black and white. Especially a subject such as this.

Aside from this extrapolation being beyond ridiculous, it has nothing to do with looks. There is a difference between life and potential for life. Hell...if you want to go this route, how about we take the Titus method in to consideration? No abortions until age 22. By then, you know if the person is going to be a shithead. Have to wait until 22 since drinking doesn't legally begin in 21 and hey...that affects some people. And by going that long, you can hold it over the kids' heads to make them behave.

Your test of the second ammendment is which weapons save lives? You are a strange bird.

P.S. I've previously stated I'm not for banning abortions, but do agree that 'I' shouldn't pay for them as a method of birth control...

.. that by the way has been the position of most conservatives... don't allow federal funding of abortion.. not outlaw it.. you know that.

My comment was related to the stupid photo of an acorn and "that's not a tree".. at least you liberals need to be honest enough to say that small people (fetuses) ARE people... of course they are, unless you can tell me at what point they 'become' people..

..so abortion IS, as a fact, murder.. if you support it you support such murders, stand up and say it.

Again, 'I' do support a woman's right to such murders.. up to a given age.

And after the recent school shooting I'd be willing to extend that age somewhat... how old was that crazy shooter?

Medical definition of being alive, is having a pulse and brain activity, which both are present in a fetus.

Laws outlawing abortions have always had a clause for instances when the mother's life is put in danger, or when the pregnancy results from rape.

Always? I find that interesting considering anti-abortion laws have been on the books since the early 1900s in this country. Prohibited in over half of the states, only about two-thirds of those having clauses for extenuating circumstances.

My bad. I was referring to recent anti-abortion laws. Nobody in their right mind, in this day and age, would pass an absolute anti-abortion law. Mother's life is just as precious as anybody else's life, if not more.
