    I’m sure someone on here would know the particulars, but I can remember listening to Glenn on the radio several years ago talk about how law schools, starting around the 1930′s, no longer taught students to refer back to the Constitution when deciding a case. Instead, they began to use past cases (“case law”) as the rationale for whether something should be permitted.

    So, today, law students — who become lawyers and then judges — are clueless as to how the case they are studying stacks up against the Constitution

    That’s how it’s become irrelevant.

    No, he’s saying that our rights change with the times.

    For example, women now have the right to kill their unborn child. However, there is NO right to freedom of speech if it offends anyone…..ETC!

    Unfortunately, he is. And, he’s not alone.

    Thanks to the Progressives, the original intent of the Constitution has been cast aside as outdated, and because it is a “living, breathing” document, it must change with the times.

    Faith, I will wait to see the fruit before I will rejoice. Trump has a bad history of saying what people want to hear and I believe this may well be the case here.

    Is that published anywhere?

    That WOULD be funny, since the “Stay” group has been suffering from apoplexy ever since Thursday night. They are absolutely convinced that this is all a bad dream and this online petition is their proof that people regret their decision to pull the lever to leave. (It was put out by the House Of Commons, for cryin’ out loud!)

    If it is proven that the vast majority of the petitioners aren’t from the UK, THAT would be hilarious! (It would be even more interesting to see where the bulk of the signatories are coming from…..Russia? USA??)

    Lewandowsky a conservative? By who’s standards?

    Lib, science is not on your side. From the moment of conception, there is an independent human being with its own distinct DNA being carried in a woman’s womb.

    Rebecca, please ignore VeryCobalt. S/he is a troll who has never put up a positive post on ANY subject. Ever. I feel sorry for him/her, as it’s obvious they are inherently bitter. The only way they can feel good about themselves is by tearing others down.

    Rebecca, YOU are the reason we stand outside of abortion clinics year-round, in temps over 100 as well as temps below freezing. YOU ARE WORTH IT!

    Interesting, Blinky. CPC’s tell women about abortion and the different methods of abortion. As Rizzi says in her post, they will even continue to counsel a woman who chooses to abort. They just won’t provide referrals for an abortion.

    One of the women who regularly comes out to the abortion clinic with me is a woman who aborted her first child when she was in nursing school. She ended up marrying her then boyfriend and they were never able to conceive again. After being unable to conceive for a decade, they finally adopted twin girls who are now eleven years old.

    She grieves the decision she made to abort her first child and goes to the abortion clinic to share her story so that other women will better understand the risks they are taking.

    Rrizzi90 — Please ignore the idiotic statements some are making here. I am a sidewalk counselor at a late-term abortion clinic and KNOW hard your decision was. YOU ARE ENCOURAGING other women. who are terrified, to believe that there really is help for them.

    God bless YOU and your twins! I have seen many young mommies turn away from the abortion clinic once they see they really aren’t all alone. YOU DID IT and are an inspiration to others!

    Just so that people understand what CPC’s do for these women, most offer:

    - Free pregnancy and STD testing.

    - Free ultrasounds of their unborn child — with plenty of time given so the mother can actually see and understand the shapes as they move inside of her. (Unlike at PP or an abortion clinic where they charge for ultrasounds and, if forced to show the mommy the ultrasound, will pause the process in order to show the mommy a still shot that looks like an indistinguishable “blob of tissue.”)

    - Parenting classes and, in some cases, relationship classes because CPC’s often find that these women struggle with their families and significant others. Mommies (and dads) who attend classes earn points to trade in for free baby gear.

    - Referrals to free or low cost medical care.

    - A non-judgmental counseling program where they learn to have healthy expectations and manageable goals for them and their child.

    As you can see from the article above, these groups make an incredible difference in these women’s lives —- and I’m proud to be affiliated with several of them.

    Eda, it’s sad that you gave up helping out at the CPC.

    Unfortunately, our government has seen fit to permit “anchor babies,” which is an enticement for young illegal women to enter our country. Once their child is born, their new baby is a citizen and it becomes nearly impossible to deport the mommy.

    We need to press Congress to close this huge loophole to American citizenship.

  • [13] June 17, 2016 at 7:42pm

    Yes, Blinky. Please explain — and be specific. I have personally escorted many women from abortion clinics when they’ve chosen life for their child and CPC’s are the lifeline we rely on to help these women in their next phase.

    If they were “propaganda centers full of lies and distortions,” you better believe these women would see right through them. Instead, CPC’s are comprised of mainly volunteers who have a heart for these women in crisis and become their mentors.

    So, tell us specifically……where are the lies and distortions? Me thinks you are the one who has fallen for the propaganda.

    Billy, stop calling us “protesters.” We’re not PROTESTING anything.

    We are there to offer hope to hopeless women who feel they have nobody in their corner.

    We are there to make sure these women understand that abortion isn’t their only choice.

    We are there to listen and counsel these women who are terrified of what an unplanned pregnancy can mean for their future.

    But, most of all, we are there to LOVE them……we offer the real and unmistakable gesture of a hand up and a shoulder to lean on. We don’t shame them. We listen. We offer concrete resources and support — and even baby showers if they choose to keep their pregnancy.

    Those of us who stand outside abortion clinics aren’t there to protest abortion. We know we only have about 30 seconds to win the mother’s trust and “protesting” isn’t the way to accomplish that. A warm smile is.

    dbaskins, I will go back and reiterate what I first said — Disney is in a world of hurt.

    Florida having gators in lakes is fairly well known. A local Florida lake can reasonably be expected to have wild gators, but a man-made lake in a protected environment isn’t considered to be a logical place for gators.

    Think of it this way — People who have never lived in an area that has gators would have NO IDEA that gators would be in some place like Disneyworld. This company is KNOWN to promote their property as a safe and idyllic fairy tale environment. Visitors would expect that Disney would routinely patrol their property to prevent harmful animals from entering or remaining therein. (For example…..I would bet that cougars are common in that area. Does Disney let them roam freely?)

    Gosh, Moderation, you really are a jerk.

    People who live in areas like Nebraska wouldn’t have any clue that alligators are in a man-made lake in what is supposed to be the most idyllic and fun-filled setting in America.

    The signs said “No Swimming,” NOT “No Wading” or “Caution: Alligators.” Disney has an obligation to warn people that a predator is lurking in the water just feet away from them.

    Check out these photos and story from a woman who was wading with her little boy at the EXACT SAME SPOT only 1/2 hour before the tragedy. Take a look at the water — only inches deep and crystal clear all the way out to about four feet. Notice the sandy beach. Someone not from Florida would never suspect an alligator could be only feet away.

    Wrong, moderation. Too bad you feel the need to make a stupid comment before you read the articles.

  • [4] June 16, 2016 at 9:55pm

    Awww CRAP, Monk!!! Why’d ya go and do that?

    My grandkid’s dad lives off a marsh in Charleston, SC. They have a 6′ chain-link fence to keep all the unwanted things,like gators, out of their yard. Their dad is a native Charlestonian and I’ve NEVER heard of a gator jumping a fence before!

    I suspect he hasn’t, either!
