Abortion only matters to the unborn. If you believe that life begins at conception, it is not abortion but murder. Regarding illegal aliens, the law needs changing so that if they have a child here, it does not become an automatic citizen which allows the mother to ride in on the crib blanket. Those who have been here all or most of there life could be allowed a "green card" sort of status where they have the rights etc but can not petition anyone in until they acquire full status.
PS " illegal alien" is not a bad term - they are here illegally and they are not native to the area hence "alien" Don't see the problem there.4 months ago
It is not a question of need. I believe in what one of our founding fathers had to say. "He who is willing to give up a little freedom for a little security deserves neither and shall lose both" Having said that, I do agree that we need to get a handle on the nuts out there that are doing these things. It is true I believe, that most of these people demonstrate and have demonstrated anti social behavior. It should be possible to bring them in for screening not withstanding the ACLU stance of - let them go till they hurt somebody or themselves.4 months ago
Nothing wrong with selling a weapon to a legal user no matter how it had been used. My main thought is the people that say they buy the gun for protection and it is interesting the response I get when I ask them if they really believe the could shoot another man quickly enough to change a situation. Most new buyers have never shot an animal much less a human and without that will, I feel the weapon is more a liability than an asset. Training both in the mental aspect and the mechanics of gun handling is needed I feel.4 months ago
It would be interesting to know how many of these people had there flu shots and how many went to the ER because they had no insurance.
Seems few took there shots until all this really got going.4 months ago
Might just get a dual personality disorder decision and spend the rest of her life locked up as criminally insane. I think it would be a worse punishment than the chair. But that's JMHO Laws are weird and lawyers more so.[sad]4 months ago
You can always tell when a politician is lying, his or her lips are moving.
That said, it amazes me that so many keep getting re-elected!
Voter turn out or voter ignorance. The only other option is apathy.[sad]4 months ago
Biggest problem is just getting the LEGAL voters out on election day.
I suspect if all legal voters would show up, it wouldn't matter how many illegals slipped by.4 months ago
Main problem is funding no matter what you do. We can not get anything done for free and I for one am taxed out! We can try to get the law changed to where we can round up the known nuts roaming our streets and see if we can determine if they are a risk to us or themselves.ACLU blocked that years ago but seems the question needs to be raised again since most of these people that have done these things were already suspected of being a bit off center. California kid seems to have warped out because of bullying and that is a whole horse of a different color.4 months ago
I don't see any one armed guard as being a deterrent as he may be on one end of the grounds and the nut-ball comes in on the other. I also don't see hassling innocent people with undue regulations as the nut-ball and the criminal will get his gun either way. We need to re-look at the ACLU's job on getting a law enacted saying we can't take nut off the street until they do something. Most of these guys doing these things were already know to be in need of having there heads thoroughly explored.
As it is we are in a bad situation "A person who will give up a little freedom for a little security deserves neither and will lose both." - believe it was Ben Franklin said that.4 months ago
Well this goes back to the definition of legal or not. If they are given the right to work and a drivers license they must be legal. If they are not allowed these things, they are illegal. No one deserves to live in the twilight zone. I would allow them a legal status but they would not be allowed to petition any other person into the country until such time as they may gain full citizenship and the same if they have a child. No sense letting people ride in on the coattail of a baby born here. (The automatic citizenship law needs change in that respect) JMHO4 months ago
