Personhood for a fertilized egg is as ridiculous as personhood for my toenail clippings! Seriously folks, this is the most absurd debate in the history of civilized man. Zygotes are not people, they should not be afforded rights under United States law, certainly none that supersede that of a woman.

Indiana State Rep and total moron, Bob “Bucky” Morris recently criticized the Girl Scouts for being pro-lesbian, pro-abortion and of selling fattening cookies. It was also reported that Morris hates apple pie and was seen kicking a kitten.
Daily Kos has a petition to sign in support of the Girl Scouts:
These were my comments on the FB page from yesterday:
Morris was beat up by a Girl Scout, that is why he made the statements he did. If his wife hadn’t intervened, that girl might have killed him.
I’ve never been so disgusted as I am at the republicans of today. Each time one of them attacks women, or makes issues that are absolutely none of their business what they concentrate on, I remember the run-up to the 2010 midterms. I remember all the broken promises about concentrating on the economy and jobs.
Boehner, where are the jobs?
They haven’t even introduced a jobs bill!
The republican candidates for POTUS are writing the playbook for the general election and guess what — they aren’t any offensive moves. If they try to appeal to more moderate voters we have them on tape. They’ll spend all their time on defense.
I can stand all the rest of the anti-American stuff for those thin mints!!!!
I can not be bought cheap just for Girls scout thin mints..
So, if they throw in a free box of peanut butter Do-si-dos? 🙂
The Siena College Research Institute (SRI) Survey of U.S. Presidents first began in 1982. For the 2010 survey, SRI, located in Loudonville, NY, received responses from 238 presidential scholars, historians and political scientists who were invited to participate in the survey.
The survey asked respondents to “rank each of 43 presidents on a scale of 1 (poor) to 5 (excellent) on each of twenty presidential attributes, abilities and accomplishments. Overall rankings were computed by assigning equal weight to each of those twenty categories.”
Personal attributes include willingness to take risks, intelligence, background, and luck. Abilities include communication, leadership, ability to compromise, and executive ability. Accomplishments include handling of U.S. economy, party leadership, relationship with Congress, and foreign policy accomplishments.
The newcomer to the 2010 survey, President Obama, entered the survey ranked at number 15 with high marks in executive and leadership ability, intelligence, communication, and imagination.
There was some movement in terms of rankings of the 42 presidents included in previous surveys. George W. Bush, for example, fell from 23rd in 2002 to 39th today. This ranking puts Bush among the worst U.S. presidents ever. The only presidents considered worse than Bush, according to the 238 scholars, are Andrew Johnson, James Buchanan, Warren G. Harding, and Franklin Pierce.
Other shuffling of the rankings include Bill Clinton’s move from number 18 overall to number 13. Ronald Reagan dropped two spots from number 16 to number 18 overall. Jimmy Carter dropped from 25th in 2002 to 32nd this year. George H.W. Bush, however, remained steady at the number 22 spot.

Everyday that I watch the Political shows, I am so remind of the Abott and Costello skit and I keep repeating it ” How Stupid are you?”
How stupid do you want me to be?”
None of us can get that stupid!
Santorum has come out against sex and college among other things we all find pretty popular. That man is off his rocker!
I find it insulting really and I keep praying that hopefully not many are truly that stupid to vote for Ricky-po.
