Maximus:

Wrong on every point. Calling the president silly names isn't very elucidating or convincing. Maybe that's not what you're after.

I work for a big private company and pay lots of taxes.

Glad you like Atlanta. How many federal dollars does city-owned Hartsfield-Jackson Airport get? Would Atlanta be successful without it?

Jonni:

From your end of the political spectrum, everyone looks like a radical ideologue.

Other moderate Obama positions: Support for fracking, drone strikes, bank bail-outs, the Manning prosecution, the NSA, some tax cuts (part of the stimulus), private insurance in Obamacare instead of single-payer, North Korea policy, Staying in Iraq and Afghanistan for years, support for Israel (according to Netanyahu). He's got progressive policies too, but he's not a radical.

PlainTruth said "Can you justify 22+ weeks abortions?"

If a fetus has a birth defect condemning it to a life a few weeks long and in constant pain.

If a pregnancy complication threatens the life of the mother.

The law doesn't support elective late-term abortions without cause in most places. I'm not trying to either.

JonRoss:

Obama is a moderate and has done a lot to help producers, including saving the auto industry.

If you have to lie to yourself to support the view of the world in your head, then maybe you need to reexamine your view of the world. Most Democrats are producers. The underclass mostly votes Democratic, but all over the South there are poor people benefiting from government programs voting Republican because Jesus tells them to.

z...:

No one is persecuting you, get over yourself.

Schools promote tolerance because we all have to live together in this country. Some schools might explain the difference between gay and straight to age-appropriate students. I don't know how necessary that is. Your hysteria over promoting "homosexual acts" to small children at school is not reflective of reality. I didn't get any of that in my liberal public school.

JonRoss said "I don't need maternity, I don't need preventive, but you Progressive are forcing me to pay for that."

Women don't need prostrate exams. What's your point?

The purpose of preventive health care is to make health care less expensive by catching problems early. Hope you never find one.

I doubt anyone is trying to push anything down your throat. People do have freedom of expression though, just as you do. They can even call you a homophobe, if that's the impression you give them.

JonRoss:

You will always believe that as long as you think embryos and fetuses are babies. Life begins gradually, which confuses the hell out of right wingers who can only comprehend black and white.

You don't have to participate in Obamacare. But if you expect a hospital not to refuse to save your life if needed some day, it's fair for you to pay for that security just like everyone else has to, if you can afford it, through insurance or a "fine" (tax).

Too many people want to be like the grasshopper not pulling his weight and then mooching off the ants. That has gotten way too expensive for the rest of us.

zabunchaletters:

Pull away from Fox News and stop giving credence to insane lies about Democrats.

And, if you value freedom so much, why do you want to persecute gays? Live and let live.

PlainTruth:

Since I'm a man I can't help you with that. I know that late-term abortions are rare and usually for medical reasons. Women who don't want a baby don't carry it for 22 weeks - why would they? You're on the right track if you want to defer to the opinions of women on the issue though.

I was referring to the right wing when I mentioned the Bible at the end of my comment (see conservative above).

A person has a mind. As that mind develops, a person comes into being.
