Letter writer Jim Welch seems unaware that Republicans were advised by Orwellian word-meister Frank Luntz to use Pro-life instead of anti-abortion. That term would seem to mean that those who were pro-life would come to the aid of any unwanted child after birth if necessary, be anti-death felony executions and certainly anti-war where thousands, maybe millions are slaughtered. The fact is such is usually not the case. Face it, pro-lifers are more interested in penalizing those so brazen as to participate in sex without the specific intention to procreate. Modern day Victorians, or is it just power trips over someone so unfortunate to find themselves with an unwanted pregnancy? I wonder what the prospects in life are for those whom were unwanted in the first place, for whatever reason. Welch claims to be for life. Whose, and under what conditions? Or just the unfortunate unwanted pre-birth fetuses which become the sole problem of the mother after birth? Or maybe to become the ward of the state that we support with our taxes? Is he for life after birth?

Bill Pitts says: I am tired of minorities telling me in my city what we can and cannot do.”

Wow.

Bill, whether you are tired of it or not, in this city and everywhere else in the U.S., minorities have rights. So do majorities. Rights are basic, normative rules about what people can and cannot do, and how other people must be treated. Rights are fundamental to American society. Like it or not, our rights are enshrined in the Constitution and apply equally to all Americans, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days of the year. They cannot be voted on or, or removed on a whim from any group or subset of Americans, ever, by anyone. That’s why they are called “rights.”

I see that Mr Borgen cannot resist bloviating. All that hot air, as if it is significant or relevant, in a feeble effort to castigate any and all who do not subscribe to the democrap, liberal agenda. ” Or just the unfortunate unwanted pre-birth fetuses which become the sole problem of the mother after birth?” Maybe therein lies the problem. Just maybe both parties should “become the sole problem.” I say let us all continue to be blooming idiots! I mean if we cannot legislate morality, free speech, prayer in school, abortion, health care, immigration, etc etc etc. What the hell. If the ACLU can protect “free speech” and therefor panhandling on/in the street why can they not protect my open carry of firearms right? How then can you tell me how many rounds I can have in my weapon. Where and when I may carry it. If atheists and abortion rights MUST be respected then my gun?ammo/carry rights also deserve to be respected.

Breaking new for all of the anti-Cliven Bundy crowd. Democrat Harry Reid has been grabbing land in NV for years. His Chinese wind power operation has netted him millions. No matter the democrap source Bundy does NOT owe millions to the US dictatorship. His families 140 year lease is NOT with the dictatorship.

Borgen—-“Face it, pro-lifers are more interested in penalizing those so brazen as to participate in sex without the specific intention to procreate.” “Welch claims to be for life. Whose, and under what conditions?” Sheesh I swear. All that hot air is killing me. Mr Borgen all that bloviating just an attempt that anyone that is not on your sinking ship, with you, should be. I for one am not going without a fight. Where will you be upon that day. Whimpering in a corner?
