How to tell Republicans are serious about the unborn.

I am an individual that endorses choice. I believe that everyone should have the ability to make their own decisions regarding their health. Republicans will tell you that they are for choice, but that they are speaking for the unborn.

So, it occurred to me that Republicans want to establish the unborn as citizens. Back it up, I say. When the Republicans get around to giving tax credits for the unborn, I will believe that they are serious.

To follow their logic, it costs money to raise children. Thus a credit/deduction for children on state/federal taxes. It also costs money to prepare for the birth of a child. At tax time, give the families a credit for an unborn child if the birth will be in the next year.

Then I will know that Republicans take this life thing seriously.

Has FEMA done anything for the Florida/Georgia tornado area?

What kind of needs does this area have?

Are the Republicans looking for planted material?

Is it possible that hackers have tried to place damaging material in Hillary Clintons emails? Their zealous persuit of her email material leads me to put on a tinfoil hat. They seem frustrated that it can't be found.

From 2009: Porn in the USA: Conservatives Are Biggest Consumers

So it shouldn't surprise anyone that Conservatives (probably White males) don't find any fault with Trump's actions.

I won't gloat, but I am pleased that

the Republicans have basically conceded the next 20 years on the Supreme Court to progressives. I suspect that Clinton will be a two term president, so there will be 4 to 6 positions on the court to fill. This was my greatest concern heading into this election. This will allow Clinton I judges to retire and force some of Bush appointments into retirement. Its the best news for our country!

People who vote for Trump: FU America

Voters who select Donald Trump are giving the United States a big f**k you. There is more than enough evidence to prove that Trump doesn't deserve votes from the American electorate. But a large number of people have decided that they resent minorities, can't deal with women as equals, and reject the economic systems now in place, so they will vote for Trump to upset the apple cart, regardless of the unintended consequences.

Its a scary thought, that so many Americans are upset with their lives. Worse yet, they will vote for an individual and a group of people who will make their lives worse.

I'm guessing that Trump is in Romney's 47%!

He pays few taxes and uses the government to supplement his income.

(Just an observation)

Note: As a retired couple, my wife and I pay more taxes than Donald Trump. Taxes we are proud to pay!

Frustrating to watch local news...

In such a brief time, they try to capture an issue or two with a sound bite from each candidate. In order to not offend their audience, they balance the report, rather than describe the event. Perhaps local news should just indicate that there was a debate and leave it at that.
