Won't commit to GOP, Trump says August 7, 2015 at 10:50 a.m.

I agree with Nod and Pack on the Bush-Clinton-Perot x Anyone-Clinton-Trump analogy.
Perot, an egotistical spoiler. Same for Trump.

I'm good with this model.
Let's look at the first point:
"About "The vast majority of Conservatives think abortion at three months is ok." Is that a fact?"
Looking at the May 2015 Gallup poll we see 50% of Americans identify as pro-choice and 44% as pro-life.
Breaking it down further, we see 63% think abortion is ok in case of rape, incest or to protect the life of the mother. The same 63% think it is wrong to use abortion for birth control or to abort late term. Since most states allow abortions for any reason up to the time of birth, most people, therefore, are opposed to most current abortion laws. But this should NOT be interpreted as most people are against abortion. They are not. Late term abortion for birth control is the anathema.
Since most Americans are conservative and most Americans are ok with abortion as described above, I believe most conservatives are ok with abortion as described above.

Parsimony on pause August 6, 2015 at 10:27 p.m.

mrcharles, I believe you are seeing the effects of Slak's conversion therapy. He is happy down in Rebel, Texas. The only thing I ever hear him worry about is if the pudding will run out. He only gets his smart phone a few hours a month, so we don't hear much from him. Like Osama, he don't write. It could be that bucket of pills.
Can you wait to do the turtle doves? I tried the jig saw on mine last month and made a mess. Grandma cussed me and burned me with her cigar, so I slapped her and she hasn't come out of the servant's quarters since. I really need to know how to do the doves so I can coax her out and maybe get her back to washing cloths.

23Cal, I am building a little model to see where and what we need to measure to determine some good answers for the points you raise. You can help set the parameters of that model.
I understand about 30 percent of us are Democrats and about 20 percent are Republicans. I also understand Democrats are considered the more liberal and progressive party and Republicans are considered the more conservative and inertial party. I believe we poll more conservative than liberal as a nation and so I believe the half of us who vote as we damned well please will follow the more conservative path as a matter of nature, splitting 20/30 percent opposite the party numbers. Can we agree on this much or do we need to refine this before we move on?

nwar, let me put it to you this way.
The average American dad wants a quick, safe, confidential and legal abortion for his little princess if she ever needs one.
Old times have been forgotten, look away, Dixie land.
Religion is a big factor, but consider:
Kings and Priests are who stand to make the most out of a controversy. I wouldn't put it past both parties and innumerable organizations to keep it fed. Fundys are againers from top to bottom, but they are not the majority of Republicans, much less conservatives.
In short, dads, yada, yada, - little princess - haters gonna hate.
*shrugs*

kds, we can fund organizations that provide health care but not abortions. The care will follow the money, and those organizations already exist anyway. St. Vincent's is local, but a national Catholic women's health organizations or such like could quickly do the trick. There is no end of places to spend charity money.

Protecting the state August 6, 2015 at 5:48 p.m.

The election of Barack Obama in November 2008 was largely seen as a win for NFU, who had graded each of the candidates based on their policies. Obama received a perfect 100 percent rating, based on his support of the 2008 Farm Bill and a renewable fuel standard. On the other hand, the organization gave John McCain a grade of zero percent, in part because he was in favor of reducing subsidies for ethanol and food products.
~
Another project that NFU is currently working on is a carbon credit program. It allows farmers to earn income by storing carbon in their soil through “no-till crop production, conversion of cropland to grass, sustainable management of native rangelands and tree plantings”. In the program’s first two years of operation, it has earned over $8 million for participating producers.

Obama rips Iran-deal critics August 6, 2015 at 2:03 p.m.

There goes Tom, playing the Hiroshima card. Fricking proglibs always want to frame the conversation to eliminate those troublesome "other facts".
Like the fact we needn't touch any nukes to wipe out Iran's technological distinctiveness.
Like the fact MAD works. (Polaris boy otta know that).
Not even close to having the touch the nukes, Tom. You know that but choose to...oh hell, never mind. You know that was dishonest.
