I just love Google speech. ūüĎé The "I" in the last sentence of my last comment should have been "they". There is a lot of material about terrorism and Mr. Trump on the Internet. A lot of it on ABC Radio News Online besides. So, I thought I'd do something just a little bit different, and mentioned something that has also made El Paso unhappy ---of course nothing like the shooting.

The risk of being killed in a terrorist attack on U.S. soil is small. The chance of being murdered in a non-terrorist homicide from 1992 through 2017 was about 1 in 17,000 a year, which is about 133 times as great as being killed by a terrorist. Islamist terrorists are the deadliest in U.S. history‚ÄĒand certainly since 1992. Islamism is an ideology created overseas, while much of the ideology that inspires Nationalist, Right Wing, and Left Wing terrorism is homegrown.
The number of people killed in terrorist attacks on U.S. soil is small, but some ideologies inspire more terrorism than others. Islamists have killed about 14 times as many people as Nationalist and Right Wing terrorists who, in turn, have killed about 10 times as many people as Left Wing terrorists. Keeping these numbers in perspective should help cut through the partisan spin after the Charlottesville terrorist attack.

I believe since this was written the right-wingers I have killed more than left-wingers have.

I will say that the Wall Street journal article is way too optimistic about the number of abortions that it thinks tough abortion laws will stop, since many women go get an abortion if they think they need it if it breaks the law or not. but no doubt they will stop some abortions.
Kaiser Health News wrote: Most of the new laws ‚ÄĒ known as early abortion bans ‚ÄĒ explicitly outlaw abortion when performed after a certain point early in the pregnancy. The laws vary, with some forbidding abortion after six weeks of pregnancy, and some after eight weeks. Alabama‚Äôs law is the most extreme: It aims to outlaw abortion at any point, except if the woman‚Äôs health is at serious risk. So far in 2019, nine U.S. states have passed laws of this type, and more states are considering similar legislation.
None of the laws passed this year are actually in effect, either because they have a future enactment date or because judges have put them on hold in response to lawsuits, or both....
