No Room for Pro-Lifers in Democratic Party, Sanders Says: Abortion Rights Are 'Essential'
Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders suggested Saturday there is no room for pro-lifers in the Democratic Party, calling the pro-choice position a â€ścentral partâ€ť of being a Democrat.
Sanders, a U.S. senator from Vermont who is running for the Democratic nomination, was asked in a forum, â€śIs there such a thing as a pro-life Democrat in your vision of the party?â€ť
â€śI think being pro-choice,â€ť Sanders responded, â€śis an absolutely essential part of being a Democrat. â€¦ In the Senate, probably 95 percent of the Democrats are pro-choice. You have a few who are not in the House [but it] may be even a higher percentage.â€ť...

After more than 16,000 replies, the answer was an overwhelming â€śno,â€ť which received 95.8% of the vote. In response, the group accused â€śatheists and Satanistsâ€ť of â€śreligious persecutionâ€ť for voting in the poll....

Matthew 6:5 â€śWhen you pray, you shall not be as the hypocrites, for they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men. Most certainly, I tell you, they have received their reward.
What if they â€śidentifyâ€ť as black, Mike? That makes as much sense as a man identifying as a woman. I will give Bloomberg credit for one thing. He called a so-called â€śtransgenderâ€ť exactly what he was, â€śsome guy wearing a dress.â€ť

And by the way, is it only a sin to be rich and white if you also happen to be a Republican?
Good question. Makes you wonder why Jim doesn't mention that all the Dem candidates are rich white people.

Mike, due to the restrictions that the Democratic National Committee had Bloomberg could be in the debate. He is going to be in the next debate though

"I started to do research for myself. I realized, oh my gosh, we are in the midst of a maternal mortality crisis that isnâ€™t just shameful for American standards. It is shameful on a global scale,â€ť Johnson said.
The charity Every Mother Counts, which was founded by supermodel Christy Turlington, works across the world on maternal health but also in the US because America is the only developed country with a rising death rate for pregnant or new mothers
Approximately 700 women in the US die each year....

Again, In what way does the existence of sickness demonstrate health is a human right?
Bloomberg is a liberal who hasn't had the courage to debate other the other liberals, who aren't afraid to debate each other. When he was a Republican, he was a New York Republican, which downstate is no Republican at all. He's trying to buy the presidency. There is nothing to like about him, and I hope he flops so bad he'll never recover. Do you really want Nebraska to be like New York City?
Good opinion piece from the Jerusalem Post, I rather hope he's right!

Ideologically, because a self-declared socialist who praised along the years the Soviet Union, Nicaraguaâ€™s Sandinistas, and Fidel Castro is no successor of Harry Truman, John Kennedy or Bill Clinton; socially, because Sanders, like Trump, is a divider and inciter; and politically, because he cannot defeat Trump....
That Audi thing is a great idea, DF. And why limit it to Americans? Give one to everyone on earth. There would have to be a billion wealthy Americans to finance a third of the madness proposed by the libs.
I think that's a good idea, 'Dr Tim' because obesity is related to short lives, so the more obese people there are, the less time they will be around to collect Soc Sec and Medicaid, thus draining those 'trust funds.' Along the same line, you could say that the govt should provide everyone a car equal to the Audi model that Bernie owns.
I believe obesity is a human right. Therefore the government must give out unlimited â€śfreeâ€ť McDonalds vouchers. If we all go bankrupt supporting this vital program, thatâ€™s just tough taters for us.
