@TedRWeiland Don't limit the people who should stop using the anti-moral PC terms to just Christians. Christians are not the only ones who oppose infanticide.
No, that makes him a native born citizen. In order to be a natural born citizen, both of his parents must be citizens when he his born.

I am just wondering how you think that abortion is not severe abuse. Have you read about what exactly the details of what goes on in an abortion?

@justjammin44 You know (or maybe you don't), people don't have to keep their unwanted babies. They can put them up for adoption. Babies are always in high demand in adoption agencies.
@Inspiri Not "new immigrants" - ILLEGAL immigrants.
@Kaos11 Exactly. Government doesn't solve problems; it subsidizes them.
@Kaos11 Exactly. Thomas Thomas Jefferson said that forcing a man to pay for that which he abhors is tyranny.
@BobE @ksoileau Driving drunk is a crime, and that crime led to someone's death. The pregnant mom who has a miscarriage did not commit a crime.
@BobE No, miscarriage is not murder. The baby died of natural causes. That isn't murder any more than a child who dies from cancer.
@Smilee @DMJ @Joy J No, he sees himself as all powerful and people are cowed by his and the Left's tactics of calling them racists... and even more probable, is that he has information on EVERYBODY in the U.S. can has threatened to release private information on anyone who crosses him.

@Smilee @DMJ Who pays in Canada, Smilee? It's the govt., and they don't allow anyone else to pay the doctors, even if they can afford it. That sounds like socialism to me.
If the Left succeeds in their goal for us to have a single payer health care system, we will cease to have the best doctors. Doctors are already quitting in droves with the implementation of Obamacare!
Polls can lie. It all matters who they poll, what questions they ask and how they record those answers. Polls are not necessarily accurate; we see that all the time in America.
@PinkOnion it's also why they don't want to go to webpages that show the development of the unborn child. Pretty early on, the baby looks like a ... baby, not a bunch of cells or a shrimp.
@Joy J No, Obama does not have that authority. He doesn't have the authority to do much of what he does, but the Congress and the Supreme Court are too wimpy to do anything about it.
How are 50 people who agree with you, spread over three countries show that a majority in any of these countries support your position?
Smilee, then you explain to me how the Constitution limits the government if the government can tax people to do anything they want?
@Smilee @Homer57 Corporate corruption is not worse than govt. corruption. People have a choice whether to deal with a corporation. People do NOT have a choice to deal with the government.
Giving too much power to the Govt. is very dangerous. The biggest mass murderer in history is government. How many mass murders have corporations committed?
@Smilee @DMJ Then why in Canada is the govt. looking at privatizing health care? Then why do Canadian officials and other Canadians come to America for their health care, in a timely manner? Then why, in Canada, is there a proliferation of health care brokers to arrange for health care outside of the Canadian govt. system because the socialized system is not providing health care in a timely manner?
@Smilee @DMJ I have talked to people who live there and they do agree with me. My MIL talked to a couple from Sweden, and they say that they have to buy additional health insurance for their children because the govt's socialized medicine does not provide good health care for their children. They said this is a common occurrence.
@Homer57 Oh, I understand the Constitution completely. What limits would the Constitution have placed on the Federal Govt. if the Fed. Govt. could just tax people to do what they wanted? That would make absolutely no sense at all.
@DRLJR @CyHilterman And that is the reason that the Left wants to get kids away from their parents and alienate them.
@Smilee @Homer57 Roberts was wrong. The Federal Govt. only has the power to tax FOR THOSE THINGS THAT THE CONSTITUTION GAVE THEM AUTHORITY OVER. Otherwise, the rest of the Constitution doesn't make any sense.
@Smilee I think you'd better talk to people who live in Britain and Canada and ask them how great their health care system is. It doesn't matter if the insurance and health care is less expensive if the care is WORSE. Long lines in doctors' offices, long waits for urgent medical needs, denials of urgent and necessary medical needs based on some arbitrary formula on whether it a certain person is "worth" spending money on.... those are common in Britain and Canada. That is not better health care.
@popham I agree. Unfortunately, it took about 20 years to get from Roe v. Wade, which allowed only first trimester abortions except in extreme situations, to allowing 3rd trimester abortions.
It's going to take some time to scale it back, so we start with not allowing late term abortions.
As we get more and more technological advances (especially with birth control methods), the less and less even most pro-abortion advocates will have an excuse for abortion. Then, only the most rabid abortion proponent will be for abortion, and they will be in the minority.
@PaulBrown1 Even though they would deserve it, I don't wish for these people to be raped. It might result in another abortion, another innocent paying the price for someone else's bad behavior.
Wow, those protesters really care about women, don't they? They sure are showing their stripes, and those stripes don't seem very women-friendly.
@shamwil The last time blacks were brought to America to be slaves was 1808. Slave importation was outlawed then. From 1808 to 1865, all slaves were born here. That was over 200 years ago. Slavery was terrible and wrong, but it is over, and has been over for over 150 years. There is no one alive today that has been a slave nor a slave owner.
Yes, slavery happened in America. It was bad. It does not happen anymore, nor has it for over a century. My people were slaves in Egypt and you don't hear them whining about it. Get over it and get on with your life. This dwelling on the past that has been rectified is poisoning your mind and keeping you from doing better things. I know you have it in you to do great things; we all do. So get out there and do something great and wonderful! :-)

1 year, 1 month ago on Could Democrats End Homeschooling?
@shamwil Not in predominately black neighborhoods they don't. A black woman who lived in such a neighborhood was told her kids were under average. She didn't believe it and started homeschooling them. After 1 year of homeschooling, she had them take a standardized test and they tested OVER average. It turned out that every child in that school (all were black) was taught one grade lower so they couldn't pass the test!
@LauraLeeScott True, Laura. But in this case, the parents DID know what their son was up to. He had been suspended three times, and parents are always told why. She should have taken disciplinary action to change this boy's behavior.
@KevinHoman 17 yo's are not "young kids". They are practically adults.
@shamwil No, the tests are not designed so blacks can't pass. It's the other way around. The schools don't teach the kids so they can pass the test.
Everyone has authority to be out in his neighborhood and follow someone. You don't have to be a policeman to do so.
@shamwil Yes, shamwil, it is partly the education system's fault, but not for the reasons you claim. Any child can pass the standardized test if he tries to learn and if the school system will teach him. There are a lot of blacks who have started out very poor and have pulled themselves up from their bootstraps to be at least middle-class. They didn't sit around feeling sorry for themselves, blaming everyone else for their situation. They took responsibility for themselves, and worked hard to make something of themselves!
The reason the education is failing the blacks is because in predominately black neighborhoods, the schools don't teach the kids at their own grade level, so the entire school can get more money for special education. They don't have as high standards for the black kids because people have accepted that black kids don't do well. There is no excuse for this. Black kids can do as well as anyone.
@LauraLeeScott Why shouldn't GZ have been carrying? He has a Concealed Weapons Permit, which means that he can carry in most places. Why shouldn't he be able to defend himself, especially since there had been several break-ins already in that neighborhood?
Martin was a thug. He had already been suspended from school several times, and he was on suspension at the time of this incident. Even his "friend" said that Martin told her that he arrived at his destination and then circled back to confront Zimmerman!
@RandyPhillips1 @shamwil It is not wise to wear a hoodie with the hood up. It looks suspicious. It may not be illegal, but is is unwise.
@shamwil @BobLanese No, a grown man who is out of shape and shorter cannot handle a 17 y.o. who is in shape and less than a year away from being a man.
@downenray @SilasDoGood Maybe the parents should re-evaluate their lives and see if they can get by on one income instead of having so many possessions or going on so many vacations or....fill in the blank. What is more important than one's kids? The problem today is too many people view the extras in life as necessities and then claim that they "have to work".
1 year, 2 months ago on Schools Take Biometric Data: Parents Unaware
@SilasDoGood Mine too. I told my kids if the school staff asked them to do something we didn't allow them to do, or didn't seem right, to refuse.... and then tell me when they got home (or if need be, call me from the school!). The problem today, or even 30 years ago is that parents want to abdicate the parenting of their children.
@MarieJ27 They can do that without retinal scanning. The teacher can do what they used to do: stand there with a checklist and check off the kids as they get on the bus.
@Benevolent Thinker The Constitution is tangible and it backs up my assertions. The fact that digital forms of news - television, radio and internet news websites -- are covered under the 1st amendment means that digital forms of papers are covered under the fourth amendment.
1 year, 2 months ago on The Fourth Amendment Protects Private Property Not Public Acts
No, electronic communication is NOT like leaving your papers on a public bench. They are like a postal letter sent to one recipient. Yes, the letter could be opened along the way to its recipient, but it would be illegal to do so. So should it be with electronic communication as well.
The Patriot Act is law, but is is superceded by the Constitution. The 4th Amendment forbids the government from searching our papers, and that includes our electronic papers.
The Constitution means what it always has meant. The meaning has not changed. Government is breaking the law by ignoring the Constitution!
Benevolent Thinker, everything should not have changed after 9/11. The Patriot Act is unconstitutional. I want safe air travel, but I do NOT accept loss of some freedom and protected rights to be safer! I am not the only one; there are a lot of people who agree with me. I refuse to fly until this illegal search and seizure stops.
I am constantly contacting my Congressmen telling them to stop this illegal government activity.
There have been many instances in American history similar to 9/11. Too many people are acting like there was nothing like it in our history, and they are wrong. If an attack on our soil can change our Constitution without going through the proper procedures, then the terrorists have won.
You are wrong. Modern versions of 1800's newspapers are covered under the 1st Amendment, so why wouldn't modern versions of the 1800's papers be covered under the 4th amendment?
@JaneScroggins Facebook can be private, depending on what security measures you take. If you limit your posts to be read ONLY by Friends, then it is private.
Benevolent Thinker, no it is not apples and oranges. Electronic communication is the modern equivalent of the papers and effects that is mentioned in the 4th amendment. If that would not be so, then electronic news (television, radio, news websites, etc.) are not covered by the freedom of the press mentioned in the 1st amendment.
@AdrianVance Both are crimes. Taking my phone bill violates the 4th amendment. Using that information to manipulate an election is tampering with elections.
I strongly disagree. Our "papers" includes modern version of papers and letters. E-mail, phone calls, internet searches are modern version of papers and letters, and they ARE covered by the 4th Amendment. The intent of the Founders is to restrict the government from invading the privacy of its citizens.
@Bob_In_Boston What do you think the American Indians did? They were immigrants from Asia! Each wave of American Indians pushed off previous waves of American Indians, spreading them out from Alaska to Canada, The United States, Mexico and down into South America.
So, in order to carry out your suggestion of kicking out every non-native American, you would have to kick out everyone!
