    Abortion Poll

    I would have picked #1 but I don't think women should get to choose the color of their jumpsuits. But a baby after 6 months/26 weeks has a good chance of surviving. The woman has already carried the baby that long, so unless there is a distinct medical reason, there really is no reason to abort baby. Not sure how anyone can argue pro choice, choice of what? The woman can have a choice, and simply have the baby delivered and then walk away. There's a 6 month old fetus that can likely survive.
  2. Yeah it seemed like a good speech, got a little long. But he tied things together very well and even had the Dems jumping up and clapping on some things. I thought he would talk a little more on infrastructure. But he laid out several good things.

    The Why Home Depot Sucks Thread.

    I go to both stores as well. HD is close to me so somewhat convenient. I've gone thru times where I've liked and disliked things about HD and Lowes but I think both are good. My fav. home improvment type store is Menards.

    Poll: When does the shutdown end?

    They have to bring up the race card because they don't have any other argument! "If you don't agree with me, then you must be racist"! Its about security and about knowing who the people are who come into the country. Do they have a criminal history, here and or in their country. I have no problem with the US increasing its legal immigration of Mexico and other Central American countries. Those people who get in line, fill out their paperwork and are vetted.

    Poll: When does the shutdown end?

    what the fk is that supposed to mean? "well, most of them coming in don't want to kill me...." So if a prison break happened and everyone escaped and was not to far from your home, and only 20% of the prisoners were considered "violent or dangerous" then that would be OK? So "most" of them don't want to sell my son drugs, so most of them don't want to rape my daughter, so most of them won't shoot a cop who pulls them over.. . So MOST people in Mexico don't kill other people over drugs and power, MOST people simply get killed. Center for Immigration Studies estimates about 20% of illegals in the US have a criminal record. Over 20% of inmates in federal prisons are non US citizens, most all of them are here illegally and most of them are from Mexico and Central America. Its not like 1-2% of all these illegals are criminals, its a heck of a lot more then that. A wall is not going to stop all of that, but it will put a big dent in their easily getting in.

    well the Dems lie and pretend illegals aren't coming in to the country, and there's no criminals associated with them. Who's the ones being ignorant here?

    The Orville

    Orville would be a lot better if Seth MacFarlane had some better sci fi writers. He's way more concerned about trying to make some point than sci fi.

    Roger Stone Arrested for Obstruction

    I think the police should be able to use lying to be able to arrest people too. Go out find a criminal and bring them in and interview them, when they lie, then charge them with lying! We can get all the criminals off the streets in no time!
  10. My vote is "Whoever replaces Ginsburg".

    Republican Party: hostage taking versus compromise

    This is BS and you all know it. The Democrats are the ones here who are refusing to compromise. Also, for the Dems to do anything in the Senate, would require 13 Republicans to get on board just to pass any budget bill. But would require another 7 Republicans or so to do any veto override. So I doubt Dems are going to get 20 Republican senators to side with them. ALSO, the House would need over 50 republicans to override a veto. So if the Dems do not compromise the gov't will likely stay shutdown for quite awhile. This IS what Democrats wanted right? Resist Trump!

    Trump can give the SOTU anytime, there is no time limit when it has to be done. Call it what you will but Trump is picking his battles.
  14. Democrats like to call everyone who doesn't agree with them as racists or bigots or sexists etc. On one hand they come out and say that minorities and women are not treated fairly, are not given the same opportunities and are "kept down" by white society in general. But when republicans actually try to treat blacks, women, hispanics etc. all the same as they do whites, they are then called racists, bigots and sexists. Democrats definitely do NOT want minorities and women in general to be treated as equal. They want to use that wedge as much as possible. Its also quite clear that many high profile self proclaimed liberals have been quite sexist in the past. The entire liberal movie industry pretends to be all for equal rights has been one of the most sexist and racist industries there is.
  15. I have a niece isn't vaccinating her 2 kids in Iowa. The only reason more kids aren't catching things like measles is because most people are vaccinated. Just a matter of time until worse things like smallpox come back again. When I was a kid my dad worked for some oil companies and was going to take a job in Malaysia, so we spent months getting all these add'l vaccinations. But then he ended up not going there and we moved to Wyoming instead. Anyway, I had a ton of vaccinations as a kid and no ill effects still over 40 years later.
