A serious question for those who support abortion.
I assume some of you have children who you love very much. Probably grandchildren too. Here's a question for you. Actually, not really a question but a suggestion. Think about how different your life would be if your children had been aborted. Just think about it.
Finally GOP Healthcare that fits there ideology
Finally the GOP has a healthcare package that fits there ideology of hate. After all they will be orgasmatic when Trump Nukes North Korea, Iran, and kills 50 million, men, Women and children. He will be right up there with Hitler the right wing new hero because they support the Neo Nazies, White supremacist. Trump could possibly out due Hitler. That would make the Trump supporters ecstatic you people will be dancing in the streets. We can cancel the 4th of July and have a new holiday Trump/Hitler day.
But the real excitement for the Trump supporters. Take healthcare away from 31 million people. Now I understand why the last repeal failed it did not kill enough Kids in that one it only took away healthcare for 25 million people. But let's not forget our elderly and handicapped living in nursing homes they kept the part where they cut $800 billion from Medicaid so they got you also elderly. Isn't that wonderful they are going to kill you also.
(IT WILL BE A GREAT DAY FOR TRUMP SUPPORTERS IMAGINE THEY GET TO WATCH 6 MILLION KIDS DIE)
Can you imagine the right wing method of holding public hearings on healthcare. Here is what there public hearing consist of it's actually comical but like I said 1 out of every 3 Trump supporters are just as stupid as the other two. Okay here is the public hearing.
Hearing will take place for 30 minutes at the Homeland Security meeting (now that's strange why a Homeland Security committee meeting) only two people are allowed to testify. Since Trump supporters never read legislation and I always read legislation there's no sense in me posting what's in it because I will be called a liar. No CBO report, no GAO report, no idea of the cost impact to American people, the Federal government, and most important the massive cost pushed onto the states which Trump supporters have no idea because they refuse to read legislation they just listen to the freak in the White House. (Trump quote Graham/Cassidy will be great) no details because he has no idea what's in it. There are 7 red state governors that are against this bill now. Not to mention only 12% of this country is for the repeal of the ACA and I think 50% of those idiots are on OPP.
These are the only two allowed to testify.
Lindsay Graham and Bill Cassidy and guess what the name of the bill is yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa you guessed it Graham/Cassidy bill. They know exactly how to play to there base let's just go out and kill some poor kids. After all poor kids grow up to vote democratic, because democrats believe in breaking a string of poverty by feeding, educating, and medical care. Republicans believe in wealthy tax cuts, subsidies to the corporate Elite and eliminate minimum wage. What a great agenda for eliminating voter fraud. Just kill these kids before they can vote.
The following Association have come out against this Healthcare package and they have indicated that it will deny medical care to Millions. We have no way of checking this because the right wing refuses a CBO evaluation. It would only take a few days so why not do it.
I have personally donated to most of these foundations. I am sure a Trump supporter never gave a dime to anyone of them because these foundations save lives. That's not a priority to Trump supporters but a All white society and keeping there's guns are. They love guns because it's just another way of killing.
American Cancer Society, American Diabetes Asso., American Heart Asso. American Lung Asso. Arthritis foundation, Cystic Fibrosis foundation, ALS foundation, March of Dimes, Children's Hospital. I will now ask you a question do we believe the above associations and foundations or believe the three right wing morons below. I posted pictures of these people because they are you're leaders to create a new and wonderful killing field for Trump supporters.
We live in the most wealthy country in the world, the right wing talks about billions being spent on a foolish wall, eliminating inheritance taxes, cutting corporate tax rates to 15%, increase of oil and farm subsidies, eliminate the alternative Minimum tax, nuclear war with North Korea, escalate the Iraq/Afghanistan war trillions of dollars in lost funds to the Federal but these Trump supporters will deny a kid medical attention for a congenital heart disease. (HOW DOES THIS MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN)
Before you idiots start you're insults read the GD bill
The Fatal Flaw in Trump’s U.N. Speech Could Be Disastrous for American Power
Foreign Policy Magazine, Kori Schake
First the good news: President Donald Trump did not sound like the late, great U.N. fulminator Hugo Chávez, nor the incendiary former Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. The speech did not last over an hour. There was no podium thumping, no banging his shoe on the table like Nikita Khrushchev. And none of the vituperative castigation of the United Nations that we heard from Trump on the campaign trail. It’s a low standard, but the jury was out on whether the president would meet it. Those heads of state that did show up (more to that later) were riveted in their seats like spectators at Indy races, perhaps secretly hoping for a fiery crash.
The speech was long on nationalist rhetoric — many a call for patriotism by citizens of every country — but short on the dark vision from the president’s inaugural address. Someone, probably Nadia Schadlow or H.R. McMaster, slipped Steven Miller a note that those lines wouldn’t play so well on the international stage. So this was definitely an attempt by the president and his team to put the most attractive face possible on his “America First” rhetoric. And they are to be commended for it: they realized the president has both an obligation and an opportunity at the U.N. General Assembly to make America’s case to the world, and they didn’t squander it.
But the president’s strategists and speechwriters seem not to understand that urging nations to act uncompromisingly in their self-interest is actually not in America’s national interest. Because the most self-interested strategy by most countries in the world is to hang back and let the United States do the hard work. It’s curious they should miss that point, since the president’s main foreign-policy grievance is that other nations take advantage of us and need to be pulled into greater contribution.
When he said “the scourge of our planet today is a small group of rogue regimes that rejects every principle on which the U.N. is based,” it may have resonated oddly with other nations, given that the entire premise of Trump’s speech was a rejection of the reason they engage with others at the United Nations.
Moreover, the president’s vision of the international order as expressed today is indistinguishable from that of China or Russia. There was no expression of the higher values that animate American foreign policy and thereby encourage other countries to help advance these common interests. There was no expression that our values actually make the world safer and better because free people are better neighbors and more responsible international actors than authoritarian governments. Transactional foreign policy based on immutable state sovereignty means that democracy promotion, human rights advocacy, and atrocity prevention will not be American priorities.
Ambassador Nikki Haley confidently asserted in advance of the speech that the president would “hug the right people and hit the right people.” I heard the hits — on Iran, Venezuela, and North Korea — but the hugs were less resounding. President Trump called the North Korean government “depraved” and detailed their depravity: the treatment of Otto Warmbier, use of VX nerve agent in an assassination, abducting Japanese citizens. Trump was reaching for the ringing moral clarity that George W. Bush brought to the task of enumerating the Axis of Evil. He couldn’t quite hit the note, though. Perhaps it was his flippant “Rocket Man is on a suicide mission.” Or perhaps it was his threat that the United States will “have no choice but totally destroy” North Korea.
The United States is most effective at the United Nations when it sounds like a reluctant sheriff (to pinch Richard Haass’s excellent book title). It makes our expansive power easier to support by other countries. It causes global publics to give our government the benefit of the doubt when we’re wrong, which we often are. And it makes the American public more willing to accept the eventual recourse to war. This president, especially, will need that goodwill — not least from the American public he has so deeply divided — should he carry out his threat to destroy North Korea.
Granted, few Americans were listening to the president’s speech. Fewer foreigners than usual were listening, either. Neither the leader of Iran nor the leader of North Korea were present to hear the dire warnings of disaster that will befall them if they don’t repent. The premier of China did not attend UNGA this year, nor the leaders of Germany or Russia. And perhaps this is the most worrisome aspect of Trump’s brand of U.S. hegemony: the erosion of American soft power. Foreign heads of state don’t want to participate in this particular staging of The Apprentice. The U.N. was put in New York because other countries wanted to hear from us and have us hear them; that is less so now. And it will make everything the United States tries to do in the world harder and costlier.
Hillary's Book sold over 300,000 copies in the first week of it's release, a record.
It's nice to see the interest in her new book. Drudge had none of this news. If the book had only sold 100 copies it would have made Drudge headlines. I read Drudge to see what garbage the conservative Republican right is being fed that day.
We Are Not. nation of Illegal Immigrants
Watching Tucker Carlson. Stupid little black lawyer, Democrat, defends the dreamers by saying we are a nation of illegal immigrants. Ellison of Minnesota, now head of DNC, says we are like Nazi Germany and the Dreamers are like the Jews in Germany. The Jews were citizens of Germany, contributors to the economy, wealthy and Hitler needed their wealth
for the weirmacht. No resemblance to illegal Dreamers whom we have educated, fixed their teeth and cured their diseases on our tax payers tickets. We've done enough for them, and now it's time for them to go back and help their own countries. Don't tell he they're paying taxes, they can't even begin to pay back the tax money they've used. And don't give me they've served in the military. That would be .01% served in military NOT for love of country but to get their big foot in our door. If I'm wrong, please point that out. If I were a Jew in America today, I would be so angry at the comparisonhat I would not sit still and keep my mouth shut. I just sent a donation to an Israeli Voice.
Whites are the minority. Not blacks. Not Asians. Whites.
Here's the proof.
The next time someone says that whites are the majority, the patriarchy or people can't be racist against white people.
1. Politely tell them to go f*ck their ignorant racist asses. :D
2. Show them this graphic or recite the info. Whites are only 10% of the world population and the MINORITY.

Percentage without health insurance fell to 8.8%. Obama was right.
The percentage of people without some form of health coverage has fallen to 8.8% from 17% when Obama became President. The state with the lowest percentage is Massachusetts with 2.5%. The state with the highest percentage is Texas at 16.6%. What's wrong with Texas?
End of Days?
Sean Martin; Published by Express.co.uk, Thu, Sep 21, 2017
It is not known whether David Meade is losing confidence in his prediction the apocalypse will begin on Saturday, September 23, or whether he, like many others, believes the process will be long drawn out.
Canadian radio producer Robyn Flynn revealed the details from Mr Meade on her Twitter profile, telling followers: “Just tried to book an interview with a researcher who says the world ends Saturday. (He)Told me he's not available for interviews until next week.”
Her followers reacted saying the response was “priceless”.
David Meade has been the lead campaigner in the end of the world and Nibiru theory.
For years he has been proclaiming a rogue planet, also known as Planet X, is approaching Earth and will bring doomsday with it.
Mr Meade said he has been analyzing biblical texts and astronomical signs, and believes Planet X will arrive on September 23, and herald the end of days.
Some Christian fundamentalists found an astrological constellation on September 23 matches Revelation 12:1–2, which signals the start of the Rapture and second coming of Christ.
It says: “A great sign appeared in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun with the moon under her feet and a crown of 12 stars on her head.
“And being with child, she cried out in her travail and was in anguish of delivery.”
Planet X has been caught on camera, it has been claimed.
Leaked still of the Planet X system on its approach, caught by infrared camera.
The ‘sign in the sky’ supposedly refers to the eclipse which took place on August 21.
Mr Meade said: “The great sign of The Woman as described in revelation 12:1-2 forms and lasts for only a few hours. According to computer generated astronomical models, this sign has never before occurred in human history.
“It will occur once on September 23, 2017. It will never occur again. When it occurs, it places the Earth immediately before the time of the Sixth Seal of Revelation.
“During this time frame on September 23, 2017, the moon appears under the feet of the Constellation Virgo. The Sun appears to precisely clothe Virgo.”
But, some say that the end will actually be a long and drawn out process.
Some conspiracy theorists state that Nibiru will first be visible on September 23 as it approaches, but it will not actually be until some time in October that Earth will be obliterated.
