"Especially if you make more than $10 million. Audits of these folks surged 73% last year, hitting more than 18% of taxpayers in the highest income bracket, according to recently released statistics from the IRS."

Now, if they'd only start going after the corporations, too!

Nope, he wouldn't care because he never ran on a "family values" platform, acting like he was so much more morally superior than those who didn't believe and/or live as he did. Nope, that would be the GOP. Won't they ever learn?

Actually, "convenience" means exactly what it says..."a thing that contributes to an easy and effortless."

That's so funny about "unlike our liberal friends, we believe in personal responsibility." From what I see, conservatives' ideas about personal responsibility only extend to what they think other people should or should not do, not actually walking the walk themselves.

Yes, I'm sure you would. It's all about punishing the woman for having the audacity to have sex in the first place. Hence, the reprehensible attempts to force women to have "counseling" that can only be done at anti-choice facilities, forcing women to undergo invasive vaginal ultrasounds, etc.

Not everyone believes as you do that life starts at conception. The courts have determined that there can be some restrictions placed (hence, our laws regarding late-term abortions) when science has determined that a fetus would be viable. Conservatives will just have to deal with that and not force the rest of us to live by their beliefs. Geesh, and conservatives are worried about Sharia law. *shaking my head*

It's too bad that this site never returned to what it was before the changeover. Several things might help, being able to link to previous posts, making it easier to search for posts, and a "governor" to prevent banned posters from reappearing under a new name. Do you have ideas of your own to improve things?

*** Sorry, but a fetus is more of a parasite than a "someone."

*** Oh, that's a pathetic attempt at a personal insult, particularly since I don't ever go to Daily KOS and very rarely Huffington Post,

Heck, I think the government should make a new law.

It's a biological fact that it can't live without a host, so yeah, fits the definition of a parasite. I never said it was "disposable," but since we don't have slavery (as I've already stated numerous times), I (and the courts) believe that women have a right to terminate a pregnancy in the early months.

I don't think it's much of a conundrum. Late-term abortions are extremely rare and are only done for very specific medical reasons.

*** I know conservatives wouldn't mind being able to legislate the personal sex lives of others (they have a weird fascination with what goes in other people's bedrooms), but it's simply not going to happen.

<>

I'm suggesting no such thing. That was you who suggested legislating other people's sex lives, specifically "How about making a law that says if a woman can't handle having sex responsibly, she should be required to keep her legs together rather than killing someone when she inevitably "screws" up?"

<>

There are no laws mandating either of those things nor the others that you brought up (what car to drive, how much energy you can use). I've also asked you to post a link to any active attempt to legislate any of that stuff. I'll provide one link to a law that was passed regarding light bulbs. Guess who signed it into law. I'll give you one hint...it was a Republican. http://www.metaefficient.com/news/us-to-phase-out-incandescent-light-bulbs.html

Funny how that works. You posted one link (certainly not a plethora), and I posted a link to a poll that was opposite of your claims. Mine was from this year, proving what I said in the first place, that people are waking up to what Republicans are attempting to do and they aren't going to go along with it.

<>

What source are you talking about?

<>

How do you figure that? The second poll had 52% not approving of Republicans "passing new federal laws that put greater restrictions on abortion" to 40% approval. The first poll was 54% thinking abortion should be legal in all or most all case versus 42% thinking abortion should be illegal in all or most cases.
