Anyone with a brain would pray their son grew up and achieved the things Barack Hussein Obama did. He will forever be the first to break the color barrier of the POTUS.
He did bomb a lot of Arabs for 8 years, I guess that's something

How many foreign terrorist's attacks were there in the U.S. under his watch. He came in office stating,, he will kill any terrorists no matter wherever they try and hide.

Or he'll release them from prison and send them back into the battle. I guess it depends on what side of the coin is facing up that morning.
Either way, I wish him the very best in retirement.
Sorry you hovering around in conservative bs bubble. The President before him released close to 600 from gitmo. With the knowledge 30% went back fighting the infidels.
So basically they are similar in many ways
I wish Trump the best, I hope the country and all law abiding persons living here do very well in the next four years.
Obama is gone, he had his time, now let's move on
I hope he fails in everything he trys. trying privatize Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, repealing the ACA. I also how that Russian puppet is exposed, for the lying racist, homophobic, xenophobic, misogynistic, Islamophobic. IMPEACH
Wishing you all the best as well
guess what day it is? Mike Mike Mike guess what day it is. TRUMP DAY..........................

No it's the day the U.S. racist underbelly gain a spokeperson. It is the day closet racist people felt comfortable to step out the of dark. It the day the Russian puppet master's puppet disgrace the U.S. in the eyes of the world.
^^^^^^ so bitter,, maybe you should leave
Bhaven needs love and compassion, love trumps hate you know
Maybe you should leave unless you're Native American. I know truth hurts, hearing how f-ing stupid you were for voting for this lying sack of orange sh!t. All i can say is all you voted for him claims not to be racist, but his racist, homophobic,
xenophobic, misogynistic, Islamophobic, rhetoric wasn't a enough to stop you from vote on him. Truthfully it speaksmore about your inner self than, that tangerine tinted lying buffoon.
Not bitter. Have more faith in the american people, but the poorly educated and misinformed voters proved the sexual predator in chief correct. He could say anything and they would fall for it.
wishing you well
so how do you really feel about voting for Trump?
"poorly educated, misinformed, sexual predator, racist/bigot"
seems you're self defining, again
^^^^^The old saying but be true a hit racist dog will holler. He'll claim he not racist he married a African American.

Very creative, if I recall correctly there was a small march of white men in Strongsville, OH back when Obama was elected the first time. It was nearly as well publicized
It was more people at the Women's march in DC than on Friday. Best sign I saw in Austin. "Your orange tiny hands are too small to grab my pu$$y". There was 50,000 in Austin, To.

Pro-life feminists were apparently shut out of the event. Are they not women too? And surely they could be otherwise opposed to Trump. Anyway, a friend of mine went seems like she had a good time.
Fav signs: Super Callous Fragile Ego, Trump You Are Atrocious...
Super Callous Fascist Racist Extra Braggadocious
those were the best
Needs a full song I think though, not just a sign. With a půssy-hat wearing Mary Poppins haha
These women have every right to march peacefully and the vast majority did so. Communists love to ride progressive causes, just like White racists love to ride conservative ones
Myself, I think the reality is that abortion can be minimized to the point of being a rare necessity, but to make it outright illegal would be very dangerous.
I hate abortion, it is a horrible thing, but what would be even worse is a black market of abortion providers
the problem is, birth control has been highly effective at reducing abortion. LARCs have been extremely effective for low income groups.
Planned Parenthood is a major provider of those.
@ 5 months ago
McCully - Moiliili, Honolulu, HI
But, not the only provider and there are many sensible opportunities to make such products available on a larger scale without subsidizing abortions.
for many that need them, they are the only provider because of cost.
the birth control doesn't subsidize abortions.
Waikīkī, HI 96815, USA
monies going to planned Parenthood do though, if your argument is cost that is easily rectified
point being the biggest provider of abortions doesn't necessarily have to be the go to source of birth control
there is a CVS, Walgreens, or other convenience store with a health clinic within walking distance of the majority of our population, let them be the distributors
cost cost cost.
as I'm fond of Don saying, poor people gonna fück.
Walgreens, CVS doesn't put in IUDs or implants
those are LARCs. until those business you mention step up and start providing low cost LARCs for low income people (they'd have to change a lot of their minute clinic practice), there is no replacement for PP.
Hysteria is displaying more Alternative facts, to cover for his known support of the confessed sexual predator in chief. Kellyanne Conway, and Sean Spicer would be proud of his willingness to lie with ease.
Does Walgreens get subsidized to provide such services?
how about a doctor's office?
Walgreens doesn't provide those services.
PP is a doctor's office
interestingly, when you go to the CVS minute clinic site, they refer to nuvaring as an injectable.
I'm just hypothesizing a system that is better logistically
just saying that if the plan includes diverting patients that use PP to places that either don't provide those services or those services are inaccessible due to cost/availability, that plan needs more thought.
logistics are only a small part of it
if the goal is to do everything possible to prevent abortions, remove all barriers birth control - especially cost.
Remove barriers... Don't do that, the sperm will get through!
Agreed Tjaden, I think the majority of sensible persons can go along with that
that's the catch, though. these methods aren't free so someone had to pay for them.
Ala Moana, Honolulu, HI
Long term value outweighs the upfront costs
like I said my hope is to see consistent annual decrease in abortions
I hope that's everyone's goal.
I don't disagree re upfront costs, but again paid for by whom?
it's not everyone's goal unfortunately
who's goal is an increase in abortions?
anyone looking to normalize them as a viable healthcare procedure regardless of actual health risks involved
anyone who are supportive of the termination of a healthy baby inside of a healthy mother
no. those people are trying to preserve it as an option.
not increase its usage.
those same people are also pushing hard to expand access to preventative measures so they aren't done in the first place
they don't wake up, look at the falling rates, and go "we need to get those rates up."
that's a bullshït argument and you know it.
you say preserve, I say promote
heels have been dug in and positions staked
I'm not so much saying they look at the numbers
I'm saying they prioritize abortion over other options
if a woman doesn't want to carry the baby to term, there aren't really other options...
clinics aren't adoption centers, but they also don't go out telling people to get pregnant to drum up business.
they exist for women who've already made up their mind
still, my point remains that your argument is bullshït.
if their goal was to prioritize abortion above all else, they wouldn't also be leading the way for providing birth control coverage.
Two different stages, two different goals
correct, but same target population.
more prevention = less abortion.
prevention is a yuge reason why rates have been falling.
by leading the prevention effort, they are directly responsible for the continued decline in rates.
yet you say that's not their goal.
your argument makes no sense
I think we are two ships passing in the night on this, at least we can agree on prevention
you wish they did more to steer people away from abortion and towards adoption, correct?
any option aside from abortion
Would you agree that by the time a woman decides to go to an abortion clinic, they've probably already made up their mind against those other options?
Any group that fights against easier access to any and all preventative measures is promoting an increase in abortion. Simple as that. PP does more to prevent abortion than all of the self righteous groups that oppose them.

AMi,, Without access to safe, legal abortions, the vast majority would simply acquire a chemical abortion pack from a local drug dealer. I'm sure they would be willing to pick up the slack.
that is an assumption rooted in bias
AMI -are you referring to the low adoption referrals from PP.
if so, I really don't know what you expect. most of these women have made up their minds by going there vs. an adoption center in the first place.
it's much easier to abort than to do adopt and that's messed up
lawmakers have tried various ways of psychological coersion to get them to change their mind.
intravaginal ultrasound, waiting times, etc.
doesn't work - their mind is made up.
Ami,,, It's not just a wild assumption. There is already a street market. Just ask anyone involved in right to life movement. They are aware of it, but don't see the potential for expansion if RvW was to be overturned.
psychological coercion is a way of saying "hey look, there's a growing, healthy, lifeform inside of you with a heartbeat, Are you sure you want this life torn apart
looking at Chicago only, so this is anecdotal but I'm guessing it's fairly consistent anywhere
all the abortion centers are in minority neighborhoods
all the adoption centers are in white neighborhoods
right. and it doesn't stop them because they've made up their mind at that point.
I honestly don't know what sort of miracle you expect the abortion clinic to do at that point to push them towards adoption.
JC, if you read above you'll see I'm not advocating making abortion illegal
although the frequency of a girl getting a black market abortion certainly would not be anywhere close to a 1:1 ratio to what it is now legally
look you two aren't even the most liberal ones here, left of center you both are
a few others would label me a monster when all I want is for more children to have a chance at life
I'd like to see energies put forward to establish programs to encourage the completion of a pregnancy (as long as the parties are healthy, and rape/incest were not involved)
and if the women don't want to?
you got a magic plan to change their mind?
I agree that it's harder to adopt than abort. And that's wrong. But it's easier to prevent than abort or adopt. So let's stop persecuting the primary prevention facility. In doing so, the aim of abortion reduction is achieved. This seems so obvious.
Tjaden then they will deal with the choice they make
But I want them to be flooded with legit options and considerations before they finalize that choice
also, in most cities, the same places that work hardest for prevention in low income neighborhoods (PP) also do abortions.
suburbia doesn't have the same problems with access to birth control.
Agreed JC, but I believe it needs to be something that's made available anywhere, like a flu shot, accessibility beyond the capability of PP
I hate abortion debates lol
lots of respect for both of you
it's hard to adopt but relatively easy to put your kid up for adoption.
the barrier is on the receiving end
That's a great target to aim for. But until that happens, let's not go backwards. If there were a concentrated effort to educate, and make every prevention option available at a cost that encouraged use, you'd have a winner.
Do you know that most teen girls don't even know when they are most likely to get pregnant? And the boys don't even grasp the concept. They just think it's a crapshoot.
most adults don't know
education, self esteem, and hope are great contraceptives
I always told my sons to first get a girls name. Second, her number. Then find out when she started her last period. Then do the math before you ask her out.
your sons move fast!
I raised a couple of sluts. You'd think I'd have a barnload of grandchildren by now. Only one grandson. They learned too well.
The two non sluts aren't married yet. I guess there is still hope.
Guess this will be a no comment,
There's a strange disconnect between the measures of the country's optimism and the measure for Trump's (low) approval.
Results over rhetoric
try this for comparison, Obama's approval one of the worse
Approval ratings, like crowd size mean little to me.
but bmoron loves Barack's approval numbers, so once again your opinion matters insignificant, adam.
AMi, you're one of those "size doesn't matter" girls, I see.

where do these numbers come from? has anyone here ever been asked about anyone's approval rating?

no argument there. to both AMi's and Drew's posts.
I love how this prick from Missouri cliams he not racist, but he voted for one. Do you'll feel duped yet. Which all their Alternative facts. Sexual predator in chief release your taxes like you promised.

btw,,, notice if you dare disagree with bmoron you automatically:
all this insider knowledge from a has been telephone operator (from the lily Tomlin mold)
aww bhippie called me a name. I have been a supervisor for 30+ years I seriously doubt your vocabulary is big enough to call me I haven't been called before.
more right wing people alternative facts.
