    No, I understand the implications. Abortion is good. Fetus freaks who want to make it illegal are bad. I already knew that.

    Grow up. The Louisiana Purchase wasn’t really Constitutional. Getting rid of the EPA would be about as popular with normal people as getting rid of all the states in the middle of the country. Nobody gives a rat’s behind if you think that it is Constitutional or not, we need it.

    When you hear the voices of the people who want to repeal these Amendments it gives you a false sense of how much support there is for these ideas, because most Americans have still never heard that there are any fellow citizens daft enough to propose any such thing. Only if discussion of these notions ever moves out of the fringe into the public consciousness of the average voter, will you truly understand what a truly tiny minority you are part of. If such Amendments are proposed, they will be easily defeated in any state legislature that even allows them to come up for a vote, and all legislators who vote for them will be removed from office in the next election.

    Bill Clinton was very unpopular around the middle of his first term, and would very likely have been recalled if he hadn’t had time to turn it around. You say that W. and Obama would both be removed, and you may be right, but they both won reelection after serving for four years. That’s the big problem with recalls. In a choice between what you have and a hypothetical somebody else, the unspecified somebody else will always win. Only a contest with a specific somebody else is fair or likely to lead to the person winning.

    Who pays any attention to viewer ratings on Rotten Tomatoes, anyway? I go there to see the critical rating (which is a lousy 8% positive), and I go to IMDB to see the viewer rating., which I guess that Cameron didn’t try to spike in the first place, because it stands at an equally pathetic 1.3 out of 10.

    That is a childish pipe dream. If you have started believing that these are actual possibilities, you need to spend less time in the insular world of far right websites, because you no longer have a realistic grasp of what the average American voter would or would not regard as a sane political opinion.

    If you think that there is going to be a word war, maybe you should work on your proofreading so you will be ready when it comes.

    No it isn’t. The vast majority of Americans are moderates who will continue to elect moderates and be only moderately discontent with the poor performance of the moderates they elect. Radicals will continue to rant on the internet, and those who spend too much time doing so will continue to occasionally succumb to the delusion that the radical opinions they read there are shared by vast numbers of people, but outside in real life, the country will remain at peace.

    Before there was an EPA, one of our rivers caught fire at least 13 times over the course of a century. Whether it’s exactly constitutional or not, we need an EPA, and it is here to stay.

    If you are going to do that, you might as well not have a President at all. We would never have one who lasted more than two years, which would be pretty much the same as not having one.

    And who do we trust to make the determination of when the Constitution has been ignored? This could be the death of checks and balances. If the power to prosecute for violating the Constitution lies in one branch of government there is no balance of power. If it lies in all three branches equally, then there is no check to prevent whichever party dominates any two of the three branches from consolidating absolute power over their opposition.

    If thee is a turd in this case, it is the dishonorable man in the ground, who failed to settle a debt of honor with a man whom he had wronged while he was still able, and left it up to his innocent wife to redeem his squalored honor by making amends for him

    If Kyle wasn’t a slandering liar, then he was a guy who beat a man up for saying something that he didn’t like. Either way he did something wrong that he should have had to pay for, and he shouldn’t be able to weasel out of it just by being dead.

    “Immediately after abortion became legalized …” It is a clear and coherent sentence. If you do not understand what you are reading, try showing it to a more advanced reader and asking them to explain it to you before you attempt to respond.

    Yes, but we want to reduce welfare spending by having fewer poor people, and conservatives want to reduce it by making the ones we have poorer.

    Yes, absolutely, thank God for abortion!

    Margaret Sanger is dead and does not run Planned Parenthood any more. Today they are an organization of good people who mind their own business and help all women get abortions for whatever reasons they want them.

    It’s very simple. Nobody can have an unlimited number of children, so the children you would be forced to bear even though you know that you are incapable of caring for them would be here instead of the children you might otherwise have had when you were ready.

    Yeah, the child begins to have some rights when it is born. Until then it’s fair game.

  • November 26, 2014 at 10:48pm

    No, he is just saying that poor people who have already demonstrated themselves to be stupid and irresponsible should not be forced to have children when even they are smart enough to figure out that it isn’t a good idea.
