I must disagree, limric and pt, I think the dems are so taken with having a woman for prez that they will nominate The Hillster and expect her to win. She would have the substantial help of the First Gentleman in waiting [!] in getting out the vote (like him or not, he can still bring it). And who else do the dems have, after all? Whether she would win depends on who the repubs nominate. I think they have several viable candidates, but I doubt they will nominate one of them.

Hey, conman, read your gd bible to yourself and maybe, just maybe, you will inherit "the kingdom of heaven," whatever TF that is. Enjoy. And leave us TF alone.

conman, you left out that 73% said they could not afford to have a baby. Maybe you missed it, but more likely you intentionally left that out - it was the next clause in the same sentence. So of the 74% you mention, 73% also could not afford a child. An inconvenient truth for you, conman.

"The reasons women give for having an abortion underscore their understanding of the responsibilities of parenthood and family life. Three-fourths of women cite concern for or responsibility to other individuals; three-fourths say they cannot afford a child; three-fourths say that having a baby would interfere with work, school or the ability to care for dependents; and half say they do not want to be a single parent or are having problems with their husband or partner."

no, rickaroo, pt says "murder is murder," unless the fetus is aborted because the pregnancy resulted from incest or rape, then it's, well, it must be something else. Justifiable homicide?

toes, in response to your post at 1:40:

Albert Desalvo, David Berkowitz, Ted Bundy, Richard Speck, Sandra Camille Bridewell, Kenneth Bianchi, Lawrence Bittaker, Joel Rifkin, and others.

All adopted. All murderers, many serial killers.

But I don't think that's a valid argument for choice, just as I don't think yours is a valid argument against choice.

junk trash said "Your link shows the $16/hr rate was stated in 1979 dollars which would relate to to over $51/hr. in 2013 dollars."

You damn right it did, because that's when they were being paid.

Let me explain so perhaps even you can understand. The workers were working in the year 1979. They were being paid about $16 per hour. They were being paid that amount in 1979. That's why I linked to the rate in 1979. Got it?

toes said "Google "Weirton Steel" yd and see for yourself what an out of control union does. They weren't happy with $40 an hour for 40 hour work week. The union there got everything they wanted. Then reality hit when they could no longer compete with foreign steel makers."

I remember reading about Weirton years ago when the bankruptcy was filed. The company had been failing in the 1980's, when the employees bought the company. The company was prosperous for awhile but eventually foundered in 2004.

Weirton did not fail because employees were making $40 per hour. Where did you get that figure?

In 1979, the average wage was about $16 per hour.


In 2003, the average wage was about $19 per hour.

Great to see you are looking out for the low-paid Black workers, toes.
