Truth. They may have been instructed to do so by the FBI. You know they get interested when people rant and rave on chat boards. Any strange looking people in dark coates sneaking around outside? Under the current administration you would think they would be after the real crazies- you know people for lower taxes, adhereance to the constitution and the like. But you never know.......Yesterday
Suppose people have the right to "home births". What if something goes wrong? Certainly could in a hospital also, but at least there are people there who can react to the situation. "Unlike many other countries, we have several types of midwives which are legal or illegal, depending on the particular area they are in. Certified nurse-midwives (CNMs) are legal in all 50 states, and mostly practice within the hospital setting. Registered midwife, certified professional midwife, licensed midwife, and so on are some of the more common designations. These midwives are not required to have nursing degrees, and may have gone through a regular program of schooling and clinical work, or may have learned through apprenticing with a practicing midwife and following a specific course of self-study, outlined by the North American Registry of Midwives.

And the Obama Administration corupt- what did you expect. Chicago politician, Chicago politics.Yesterday
I think the difference is that New Orleans housed so many people that were dependant upon the Government for everything. Being dependant makes you additionally vulnerable. Even with ample pre warning, no car, no money puts you in a dangerous position. After a disaster, having no resources also makes it difficult for a community to help itself. Most of the midwest are not in that position.Yesterday
Love the logic here. If a fireman told you your house was on fire, would you ask him why he cheated on his wife before you belived him?Yesterday
Tell you what Cerulean, if you can get the Government to tell us where the money comes from and where it goes, they you might have a case for private citizens. Again, the difference here is people who need to have someone think and do for them and those who would rather take responsibility and do for themselves. Those who can't or won't like a big government that wastes mass amounts of money to care for them. Others see the waste and feel like lower taxes and keeping bigger portions of the money we work for will allow them to do for themself. Which side are you on?Yesterday
The problem with Valley Metro is it is a day late and a dollar short. Most people who commute have a fair distance to go and not necessarily on the lightrail that actually gets you there in a reasonable time without a million stops. 2 days ago
No doubt. Let me also say that Terra Card Readers, Fortune tellers and Soothsayers also run real risks here. People should be able to (gulp) go to any "practitioner" they deem fit for help in their lives. giggle2 days ago
This in Chicago is what is called business as usual. You may recall people trying to warn the American public that it was coming. Yes, generally the difference between the people appluading this nonsense and those against (the majority of America if you believe the polls since before and after it became law) are that those opposed have taken responsibility for themselves and those for want some one else to take care of them. No matter what it costs (they won't be paying) or how dangerous it will be for the economy. Ask your closest business owner why?

And Liberal Loons are a laugh a minute assuming that raising taxes on the wealthy even begins to touch the larger problem. What don't you understand about 1 trillion dollars of deficit each and every year. You can take all the income from every wealthy person and don't begin to cover that gap.
So instead of class warfare, come up with a real answer and try to sell it to the people who will actually have to ask for the real solution.3 days ago
