    Dear Concerned American,

    It's a horrifying modern day genocide happening in our own backyards.

    Last year alone, Planned Parenthood was responsible for ending the lives of over 320,000 innocent babies.

    And all of it was subsidized by over $350 million in taxpayer funding.

    Using money from your pocket!

    I believe there is something deeply wrong with an organization that murders babies, and even more so when they are funded through the taxpayer dollars.

    Do you agree?

    If so, I hope you will sign the Defund Planned Parenthood petition I will link to in a moment.

    Thankfully, a rapidly growing number of Americans like you are fed up with their dollars funding the corrupt Planned Parenthood.

    Unfortunately, a stubborn Senate stands in the way.

    But momentum is building quickly.

    Just last week the Housed passed the Pence Amendment attached to the Continuing Resolution that extends government funding set to expire on March 4.

    The Pence Amendment removes all taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood and any other abortion provider.

    But it is up to you and I to make sure the Senate passes the Continuing Resolution with the Pence Amendment attached.

    This is going to be a tough fight.

    It's going to take every ounce of strength you and I have.

    You see, there are many in the Senate beholden to Planned Parenthood.

    Together they have concocted a strong barrier designed to eradicate any bills aimed at saving babies.

    But that's not going to stop me from standing firm in my belief that this legislation designed to save babies needs to be passed.

    Will you take a stand with me now against the taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood?

    If so, stand with Americans for Life by signing the Defund Planned Parenthood petition here.



    Your petition will direct the pleas of countless pro-life Americans like yourself towards a Senate that must decide to either stand for life or the murder of over 320,000 babies every year.

    They can put a stop to it by passing the Continuing Resolution with the Pence Amendment attached.

    You and I just have to see to it that they do.

    But it won't be easy.

    Planned Parenthood's would have you believe this is a war on women and their wellbeing.

    And believe me, they have their supporters riled up like never before.

    Daily emails from Planned Parenthood, NARAL, and Emily's List are being sent to paint pro-life Americans as villains.

    Sides have been drawn and an epic showdown in the Senate is underway.

    And if the side that is only asking for the life of a child to be respected is to win, you must act today.

    So will you?

    Will you sign the petition demanding the U.S. Senate defund Planned Parenthood?

    This fight will happen quickly as the Pence Amendment is attached to the Continuing Resolution that must be passed by March 4 or the government will be shut down.

    So I need you to decide now -- not tomorrow.

    If you will take a stand with Americans for Life, click here to sign the Defund Planned Parenthood petition right away.

    Americans for Life

    Yeah, you think so do you....? Remember this event?

    Jesus. This is wildly inappropriate.

    After a week in which Doug Elmendorf, the head of the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, said that Congressional health care overhauls would balloon federal health care obligations by $240 billion over the next decade, the President Obama called him into the Oval Office for a little chat.

    But Elmendorf didn't just get leaned on by the president. He was outnumbered by something like 10-1

    And look, I even used the Rolling Stone's own report of it....Not some right wing source. Oh and what was their opening line? "Jesus. This is wildly inappropriate." Yeah....ok.

    Face it Conservative, you've lied about your "facts" in the past to push your agenda, its obvious and blatant and the more you run from that, the deeper a hole you dig, and the more we're all having a very good chuckle.
    Didn't run away at all, all posts are irrelevant, In July 2003 the rate cuts were accelerated and the economy started generating jobs. Withholding tables are printed every year. What is the point of that entire "gotcha?"

    As for percentage change, does it really matter. Which matters more the larger increase in percentages or the larger increase in actual numbers. If the base is higher then the percentage change is going to be lower but the actual numbers are real.

    As was posted regarding job losses I was referring to employment numbers and if you even check the unemployment numbers they were worse than 2009 but you want to badly believe Sheik. Did you go to bls and confirm who was right? Employment is two million lower today than it was when Obama took office and 2.5 million less in the private sector. Keep buying what someone else tells you because you want badly to believe what they are saying. Sorry that I have created that type response here that you have to have a gotcha moment.

    As for Iraq, the 9/11 Commission report, the actual quotes of Democrats prior to Bush taking office and even after taking office refute your comments.

    As has been proven over and over again, I offer specific non partisan data that you ignore but continue to buy rhetoric from others that you want to believe.

    It is not spam or propaganda.... Why should anyone have to pay for baby killing? Our money can be spent on more productive, and less progressive projects more beneficial to the human race.... Just because I lose my job why should a woman be allowed to kill my baby? Don't I have equal rights to my unborn children?

    Is America Too Corrupt to Keep Up?

    "A sovereign nation investing its wealth in its domestic economy seems like a no-brainer, especially during a global recession. But in this crazy age of American politics, even that has become a controversial notion."

    How has the Chinese wind industry captured almost half the global market for turbines?

    By coupling public spending with incentives that encourage domestic corporate investment, nations tend to grow their own wealth producing industries.

    China has committed to "buying Chinese" while Republicans, Democrats and the US Chamber of Commerce view "Buy American" as treason.

    "Not surprisingly, it all goes back to the principle that patriotism may play well with voters on the campaign trail, but corporate cash ultimately rules the day in our nation's capital.

    "As Bloomberg News reported during the stimulus negotiations, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce fiercely lobbied against the 'Buy America' provisions when Congress debated them, just as the group lobbies against similar proposals today.

    "That may seem strange coming from an organization whose name pays homage to this country.

    "But don't be fooled: The chamber is a front group for huge multinational firms whose first priority is not this nation's economy, but a profit-maximizing business model based on exporting jobs and production facilities to low-wage countries abroad.

    "Those firms, of course, make massive campaign contributions to both parties and such donations come with the expectation of legislative favors -- like, say, killing initiatives to strengthen 'Buy America' laws."

    "Kill" the Progressive Republicans AND Democrats Anti-American Agenda before they kill America's Future. FLUSH the DC Toilet in 2012: Pink slips for EVERY DC incumbent!

    Now if you didn't understand that what I questioned, was your statement "they might even pay a higher percentage of their income in taxes than the top percent." then maybe I didn't make it clear enough for you.
    I also said in post#212 that (I would imagine it would come out that their overall their tax bill would be comparable.)Considering that top CIO’s get most of their income from perks that are taxed at the lower capitol gains rate; I will stick with that assertion…chuckles.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say
