Abortion

The latest numbers show that only 19 out of 1000 women have abortions. The statistics on abortions includes those that take the French abortion pill RU 486, now more commonly known as mifepristone.

To put this number into perspective, I needed to find the actual population of women in the US. As of the 2002 census, there were more than 141 million women in the US, a number that has certainly grown in the past six years.

19.4% of women ages 15 to 44 had abortions in 2005, the lowest number since 1974.

The census doesn't break down the number of women in this particular age group, so I cannot offer further details. However, this decrease is certainly worth celebrating and hopefully, will no longer be a matter that people consider when selecting a president.

Mind you, I am not saying it shouldn't be considered at all, but a candidate's position on abortion, should not be the only criteria used to select a president.

For the record, I am pro-life, but I have a problem with the government having the authority to prevent abortions, because it is ultimately up to the pregnant female what she can and cannot do.

I am more concerned for the female that is making decisions that will affect the rest of her life than I am for the unborn.

We cannot legislate morality.

If we are so concerned about abortions, why not do something about the culture that pervades our minds daily which is a culture of sexual gratification. One only needs to watch a few minutes of MTV or listen to the radio to understand this. Combine the music with the invasion of cute sex in the movie theatres and you have a problem. Television is totally out of control with the programming they provide for all audiences, including teen sex, adult infidelity and homosexuals portrayed as normal, every day Americans.

You are what you eat. Likewise, your mind determines its priorities, standards of morality, and conscience based on what you feed the brain.

Consider how much time people spend listening to music, watching tv or going to the movies and you get the picture.

Right now we need a president capable of handling challenges that are new and vital to our preservation. One issue alone is not enough to choose a president. There are many issues on the table, all of which affect different Americans at different ages and stages in their lives.

Be careful.

Spitzer uses friend's name to register motel rooms

Poor Mr. Fox, Mr. George Fox that is, who is now known for renting motel rooms with hookers, and formerly Gov. Spitzer's friend.

I say formerly because it appears that the good governor was using his name (George Fox) to reserve motel rooms where he was meeting with his very expensive prostitute.

And another "great" politician bites the dust...

Mr. Spitzer was elected in a landslide in 2006, capitalizing on his popularity he won as the “Sheriff of Wall Street” during eight years as attorney general. With a reputation for personal probity and independence, he pledged to bring higher ethical standards to the statehouse.

The more good you do, the more evil tries to embrace you.

Beware, even democrats can fall prey.

Sad that his legacy will just be one of another hypocrite because his true character was one of just rising to the top of his game and not the integrity he falsely showed to the public.

Homemade Mosquito Repellent

The Zika virus carried by mosquitoes has become a hot topic and is the basis for many unwarranted fears for most people in the United States. While it is a dangerous virus that can be sexually transmitted (one reported in S.C.), here in the US, it only affects about 1000 people per year.

As of August 18, 2016, there are 34 known cases of Zika virus in South Carolina.

How the Rich and Famous are Voting

This election year has been one of the most interesting, and most controversial election years of my life. The politicians and their supporters are confused, angry, and sometimes downright ignorant. The lies and accusations are tossed around easier than a salad.

This political circus has served to inspire many questions for me, not all of which serve a great purpose - such as this one.

Then again, it wasn't that long ago that a movie star was elected president.




How are the rich and famous voting? I found endless resources for celebrity supporters of Hillary, but those supporting Trump are apparently not as vocal about their choice.
