I'm too lazy to do my own research....

I posted this on FB this morning:

Repeal of Roe v. Wade is the first time Americans ever lost a Constitutional Right

Do I have my facts correct?

Thanks, DU Mates!

Leslie Moonves on Donald Trump: “It May Not Be Good for America, but It’s Damn Good for CBS”


oh for the fifties when mainstream journalism was a public trust and did "who what where when why" without a skew in favor of the morbidly wealthy corporate sociopaths and their perverse anti-American anti-Democracy corporations are people, my friend, agenda.

America is in as much danger right now as it was in the years before the Civil War. 60 years of Republican dumb-ing down of public schools so as to manufacture generations of imbeciles stupid enough to vote for people that hate them has resulted in the unintended consequence of destroying the American Dream and the hopes of the wisest American forefathers to create one of the first Democracies on the planet.

Quotes. When Benjamin Franklin was asked after a session of the Constitutional Convention, ""What kind of a government have you given us? "" he replied, ""A democracy, if you can keep it. "" Our republic is founded on the principle that it will continue only as long as the people keep democracy alive.

About 90-percent

Gee - my profile info didn't migrate from the old DU I guess? The main thing - 90% refers to the maximum allowable percentage of nitromethane fuel permitted in modern NHRA Top Fuel and Funny cars. Which is what makes current "nostalgia nitro" so cool - you can still "tip the can" and run straight nitro, if you want to. I'm an aging northeast liberal with an overdeveloped justice gland.
