Apples and oranges.
PP forgets the stated goal was abortion be safe and RARE. And ignores the various earlier means to prevent OR end pregnancy without waiting until all systems are formed and awaiting only growth.
And the Democratic Party sold its soul for the support of the choice side but did not bother with oversight or periodic review of whether their pet cause had spun out of control into an inhuman monster.

Yep… Should’ve had the vote with the pope still present.

There you you sing reason and common sense again, monk!

RJJ, I agree…nit the law prohibits my carrying legally their being off duty makes them no more elevated… Which does NOT mean I agree with the policy. It’s part of why the request/ demand is illogical: by definition it stands in diametric opposition to IIA

Yes, CEP, if they don’t trust US
LEO or law abiding citizens, my distrust of their foreign armed forces should trump their right to carry… A glaring freedom limitation placed on US citizens but not non-citizens.
And pretending he is more stable risk from NYPD than Castro if he said the wrong thing is laughable.
 September 24, 2015 at 4:08pm
No more than they do to every law abiding citizen precluded from exercising 2A.
IF this was really from the
Pope, the hypocrisy considering his armored limo and bodyguards is nearly as great as his glossing over human rights abuses in Cuba now vs his stared attitude toward capitalism.
So the union goon that patterns himself after Mafia boss John Gotti is in a prissy mood yet again.
Don’t remark on the $2,000 suit and $500 shoes. Speaking about his six figure salary is not wise. Commenting on his million dollar retirement, 8.7 years, is both unwise and could be unhealthy. No, what you are commanded to do is listen and obey. A voter in the hellhole of NYC; reflect on the fact that he made your elected Mayor kiss his butt. What does this mean about your vote (no matter how wrong headed)?
This organize crime gangster does not want any logical precaution taken to remove threats to the Pope. All one can say is read this:
Yes the bootlickers of the police state will say this is isolated. The record demonstrates the opposite; how evil and corrupt this organized crime enterprise is. If in NYC remember you are paying for a unionized criminal gang and the nonunionized gangs as well.

important to know which of our elected officials have chosen to help us along the path to a ‘eurozone’ type arrangement where our own government is powerless to say no to an unelected overseer.
Agenda 21 anyone?

in a free world, lots of people do lots of things the rest think are stupid, but which are not dangerous.
why get ink at all (and yes, i can say that, because…) if ink in the dermis of the breast can get into breast milk, it can from ANYWHERE.
or if it does, ‘dilution is the solution’ takes care of it
and it would not be absorbed, passing through the infant’s GI tract.
this is a ridiculous argument. IF a judge has what he/she/it thinks is a valid concern, instead of acting blindly, getting expert opinions and facts would prevent them looking like some prejudiced idiot.
AIDS has passed from breast milk to nursing infants, but only from infected women who have the virus in their bloodstream to pass it on. The woman in question does not have AIDS, so it's not an issue. Further, there are already rules on sterile needles etc to prevent cross contamination between clients at a tattoo parlor. The Judge probably read something online and jumped the gun... a lot.

Chris needs to think about what he is saying…
If as he IS insisting, we have to ‘give up our freedom for our protection’ as Ben Franklin sagely stated, we deserve neither.
That is, if we let our government watch us under the guise of ‘keeping us safe’ (which NO ONE can do 100% of the time), we have already lost, but to the masked evil of those who would rule us, rather than those who openly want to kill us.

where’s the #sarc on that?
the confederate flag, like the roots of the civil war are not specific to slavery, but to the independence of the southern people.
was slavery evil? undoubtedly, indisputibly. the confederate flag, though, represented more than ‘just slavery’
and pretending the flag is the cause of this manchild’s behavior is so ridiculous as to guarantee you make no progress in actually addressing the roots of the problem today or ways to solve it.
Yes, it represented the treasonous losers that tried to leave the USA to preserve slavery.
getoffmylawncommie - that is not why the south wanted to leave the USA. I agree with RaydocX that slavery is pure evil. Slavery was used as a political football to gin up hatred between the sections. Both the North and South had their hands dirty with slavery, along with the rest of the world, at the time.
So you'd have no problems with the Swastika flying proudly in a bar in Berlin that wanted to remember that promises that the Third Reich offered? The dream wasn't evil, so why should the flag that represented that dream be seen as a symbol of it?
TRUTH does not suit the Democratic Racist AGENDA.
brewskis - I don't know the promises of the Third Reich. My problem is throwing the baby out with the bathwater. Offense to the symbol of the cross because of bad priests, etc. If we get rid of any institution with lofty principles, for members who are bad actors, then we would have nothing left. To get rid of the federal government because of crooked politicians comes to mind... hmm I sound like a Confederate. I would support and defend the Constitution...just as not as it has been mutilated.
A brother to all men - Z
The only flag flown by the Confederacy that ever mattered was the white flag of surrender.
Curious how this romanticising and rewriting history of the Confederate ‘State’, and their treasonous acts, are nearly exclusive to racist, southern, white “conservative” “patriots”. This murderer, Roof, shares your fetishization of traitors and bigots. And the Civil War was entirely about slavery.
Independence of the South?! Considering the majority of residents had no rights nor independence, such arguments are laughable and disturbing. States rights and independence, that is rich. The only independence and only right the Confederate States wanted was the “right” to buy, sell, abuse, enslave, murder and rape human beings and the “independence” to do it freely and without accountability.
It is despicable that SC has kept the Confederate flag, especially now while they also lower the US flag half mast. It makes the gesture ring hollow.

Elroy, have you heard the one about the money changers?
love does not mean tolerance of evil.
whereas the messiah you would logically follow, in the White House now, is preaching endlessly to make such evils and perversions accepted normals. just wait he and his contemporaries will get to something that butts against your core beliefs. of course, like the Nazi collections of ‘other people’ by then it will be too late for you to find support for mounting a defense…
June 19, 2015 at 10:54am
nope… gen pop. any inmate making him a cause celeb and protecting him is beyond hope and can serve the rest of his sentence without chance at parole. and any inmate taking advantage of him is beyond hope and can serve the rest of his sentence without a chance at parole… consider this waste of oxygen a mine canary of the nearest maximum security prison.
June 19, 2015 at 10:52am
and impossible for you to recognize that the vast majority of convervatives are not the evil hatemongering imbeciles you want to believe us?
i have not heard of this tragically deluded manchild’s politics, have you?
that he wears apartheid patches instead of Che shirts tells us nothing.
hrankta was spot on… if he was a conservative intent on personally going after the specific people of a specific race he believed were ‘taking over’ it would have been drug dealers or gang bangers or people standing in line for their welfare enrollment, NOT church going men and women.
June 19, 2015 at 10:47am
well said, hrankta…
his nonsense is transparent, but you know Chrissy Matthews and the rest of the MSM will paint this as being the way that ‘all white people think’ (except for them), and that this is the purpose for all the gun purchases in the last 6 years etc etc etc.

i sometimes smile at Maron’s bits… not often enough to watch an entire episode or comedy routine, but he is sometimes almost witty…
and then I remember I can tune in Dennis Miller and get intelligent witty humor non-stop as long as I can take it.
 June 18, 2015 at 4:37pm
He IS a puppet… just not a puppet of the people the Rev uh rund Al and others… i suspect including this woman, would imply.
She has a right to be angry. EVERY citizen should be angry. For at least 25 years educators have been lying to us when they claimed they were preparing our children for the real world. For at least 50 years politicians have been lying to the poor as they threw our nation’s treasure away fighting a sham war against poverty. And for at least 40 years black leaders and ‘champions’ of minorities have been lying to those minorities by encouraging them to blame their condition on others instead of taking responsibility for their situations, and for allowing the inner city violence to consume a group of constitutents kept in poverty by Democratic programs as a guaranteed voter block.
You have spoken the 110% truth. The liberal left are the enslavers of the poor and black people. They are promising them something for nothing and killing their futures. Ben Carson's mother did not buy into that society and raised not only a doctor but one who is TOPS in his
field. Each and every black, asian white have the same ability; now it is for us to use the God given talents and not just demand hand outs.

i don’t know about South Carolina, but state law infringes 2A in my home state.
assuming that is true there as well, this killer broke the law taking a firearm into the church. he broke the law by taking innocent lives.
any fool from POTUS on down who believes more laws are the answer is seeking to use the tragic deaths of 9 Christians for their own motives and goals.
it’s not that there are not enough laws.
there is not enough humanity being nurtured in our kids in public schools that exclude not only God but community and cooperation and sacrifice into our youths, that teach only to the lowest standard, that do not punish failure or lack of effort, and that encourage abdication of responsibility.
in short, such killers are not the product of ‘an ability to easily get a gun’ but of the broken machine that progressivism has built.
he is both.
and his casual disregard of the murders in Baltimore and Chicago and New York where the crimes involve ‘easily obtained guns’ (also read ILLEGALLY obtained guns) as well, but where the crime is black on black lead to more cumulative death demonstrates the hypocrisy of the man… using the corpses of supposed friends as a soapbox to advance his communist ideology.
Hey, RayDocX! I can't even say what I would like to regarding the liar-in-chief, but the mods would relegate my comment to the trash bin.
June 12, 2015 at 10:11am
and his ‘you canot ad immigration… you cannot ad climate’ statement is demonstrably false when POTUS is claiming his advancing climate change controls into Malaysia is a reason for passing the bill.
sadly, instead of saying ‘no matter what the bill might contain, this means of pushing it through is undemocratic and i will not support it’ the GOP in DC is again being led by the nose by the Pretender in Chief.
June 12, 2015 at 10:10am
even if this is the best deal ever the sneaky underhanded way it is being advanced merits its defeat.
and it can’t be the best deal ever, as it gives more power to this POTUS.
the fact that silicon valley and big business want this does not mean it is good conservative policy or good for Americans. maybe when companies stop hiding profits overseas and using loopholes and buddy buddy relationships with POTUS to avoid paying taxes i will want to listen to what ‘companies say.’ the average mom and pop business does not have the clout to get any such governmental support.
