Unfortunately, you are right... I'll be voting for him, but don't ask if I know him, I'll just say, "Akin? who the hell is Akin"...

Thanks for the ping darrellmaurina. hecht is a perfect example of how desperate baby killers are. They can't stand it when someone exposes their real agenda. When Akin exposed the red herring (or if you prefer.... straw-man) "rape" as justification for murdering a child they thought they'd found their poster boy. In their tiny little, uneducated minds they believe most people favor murdering the most innocent among us. They are wrong. I personally am so happy that Akin is standing his ground and refusing to be shamed out of the race simply because a handful of loudmouthed worshipers of infanticide want him tarred and feathered.
There is NO SHAME in drawing a line in the sand and saying, "ENOUGH." I WILL NOT 'compromise' with the lives of children.
One of Marx's foundational rules is to forward his cause by two steps (or more if possible) before being forced to take one step back. This is called 'compromise.' We have 'compromised' our nation onto the brink of extinction beginning with the murdering of our young. We need to stop these liberal assclowns and rino assclowns before they succeed in destroying our nation.

We need to stop making excuses for bad behavior and start condemning it. Akin's comment was NOT bad behavior. What he was exposing is the bad behavior.
Now we need a few hundred more Akin's to take solid stands for not only the unborn but America, our Constitution and our CHRISTIAN way of life.

JMHO

Akin isn’t going to pull this off. He’s a dead man walking politically. His stubborness is making sure that McCaskill is elected and that Obamacare is entrenched permanently.

I hate how he’s turned the Republican Party into the pro-rape party. The party doesn’t owe him a dime of support and I hope they continue to shun him. McCaskill is awful and Akin is delusional, if I lived in Missouri I’d write in someone else on my ballot on election day.

Wouldn't it be great if all the RNC establishment hacks would be honest and identify themselves before posting?

Candidates like Cruz and Akin were counted out long ago by these hacks but as with Chick-fil-a, real, honest, hard working Americans came to their rescue.
Akin will win big and it won't be because romney endorsed him. It will be because he did NOT endorse him.

Honestly folks.... The people up North need to wake up and stop letting these RINO assclowns take you the way of California. You're starving to death up there. There are NO JOBs. There is NO economy. The gang banging thugs/unions have taken over and instead of supporting candidates that want to return your states to the envy of the world you'd rather throw them under a bus because some loudmouthed occupier slips into our ranks pretending to speak for us? BS.... If you live in Missouri you owe it to yourself, your children and America to elect Akin. Akin's comment did NOT cause the problems our nation is experiencing today. OBAMA and his cronies did.

Stay focused people!

PERIOD!

- take a cell from anywhere in your body other than the reproductive organs and make a person out of it.

See the section on how to clone.

Note that the problems with human cloning are not insurmountable

Speculation - unproven unless it's actually done.

and if a human clone did exist, they would be an individual person.

And they would have come about through a technologically complex and intelligently directed process, unlike an embryo.

Society is unaffected by 40 million absent lives?

It's more affected by

So you finally concede that society is affected by abortion - so by your own logic it should have a say.

"Recent reports demonstrate that somatic mouse cells can be directly converted to other mature cell types

A human being is not a single cell, of mature cell type or otherwise.

Lott was an absolute weasel. So was D’Amato, who refused to call Perry and Patterson to testify about the timeline in the Vince Foster death.

Unfortunately, Bill Clinton’s presidency was saved by the OKC bombing. He invented the vast right wing conspiracy. The evil right wingers had to be stopped, and those on the left stood behind him no matter what he did. And no matter what Lott or anyone else did, they were never going to get 2/3 in the Senate to convict him. Not one Democrat.

the folks the nazis were killing off were sentient rational beings

Your argument changes with every post. A newborn is not rational - so is it OK to kill her?

Y'all going to start forcing women at gunpoint to nurture their unwanted pregnancies?

I prefer forcing those with medical training to not be accomplices to murder.

The word murder is inappropriate when the act amounts to effective contracetion.

Contraception occurs before conception, hence the "-ception." After conception there is no contraception.

Sounds like this career politician feels like the political world just can't survive without him. He must feel he is just SO important, that Missouri, and the USA, can't function without him and that everybody loves him . pfffffftt , what a joke.

This 65 year old , 12 term politician needs to step aside, and let some other conservative have a turn.

“And no matter what Lott or anyone else did, they were never going to get 2/3 in the Senate to convict him. Not one Democrat.”

Irrelevant and a rhetorical dodge. My post was in response to your mention of Clinton getting away with rape. The House managers planned to introduce Ms. Brodrick’s testimony but Lott & Stevens refused. Moral of the story - if you’re willing to vote for any cretin that has an “R” next to their name, don’t complain when said cretin throws justice under the bus for expediency’s sake.

Good job of picking out a small portion of my response. I was all over Lott at the time including calling his office, sending email, and sending faxes. I sent him information about Juanita. She would have been there. I was all over D’Amato’s office to them to call the troopers to contradict nanny Helen Dickey’s Vince Foster death perjury before their committee.

In addition to criticizing Lott, I mentioned that the game was rigged and the RATS would never throw out Clinton. I had Dave Schippers on my show two or three times and had several conversations with him. That is how he saw it — it was rigged. Never will I defend Lott. I wanted him out of there and railed against him on talk radio.

So I see your response as a mischaracterization of my position and the actions I have taken. Your moral of the story was irrelevant to my post.

Lott’s brother-in-law is a big MS Democrat too. Lott was friendly to Mary Landrieu, and he refused to investigate the Crescent City fraud that led to her 1996 election. Still conservatives in MS though Lott was “conservative.”

“Good job of picking out a small portion of my response. I was all over Lott at the time including calling his office, sending email, and sending faxes.”

Then your actions today are illogical. Once again how can you defend Akin due solely to the argument that “well he has an ‘R’ next to his name” but then relive the days when you were rightfully attacking the faux Republican Trent Lott?? You don’t see the inconsistency there?

If you are pro-life and live in Missouri, I see no alternative for you than to vote for Akin no matter what the Republican establishment says.

Vote your conscience and let the chips fall as they may. If Missouri is a predominantly Christian state (which I believe you are) then Akin will beat McCaskill. If not, then the individuals who voted for him can have a clear conscience, and the rest of them can have hot coals heaped on their heads for letting an evil person like Claire McCaskill take your state to hell.

Just like NOT voting for Romney in the presidential election is a vote for Obama, the same is true for Missouri. A no-vote or write-in or 3rd party vote is a vote for McCaskill.

We had four great candidates for our Senate primary here in Wisconsin. I wanted ANY ONE of them other than Tommy Thompson. Guess what? Tommy won. I now have a Tommy Thompson for Senator on my lawn next to my ROMNEY/RYAN sign. I will do anything to help Tommy beat the evil Tammy Baldwin (who is LEFT of Nancy Pelosi) win that seat. Tammy has HUGE LGBT groups backing her hoping to make her the first openly gay U.S. women senator. Over my dead body. I will crawl over broken glas to help Tommy win. And then hopefully the Tea Party candidates can get in slowly over the next 2 to 6 years.

Don’t throw away the entire Senate because of stubbornness. Swallow your pride, and take baby steps to help take back Missour and the U.S.A.

I hadn't heard that the Republican establishment said to not vote or vote third party.

Just like NOT voting for Romney in the presidential election is a vote for Obama

Nope, that's publik-skool math. If I vote for Romney that's +1 for Romney v 0bama; if I vote for 0bama that's -1 for Romney v 0bama - but if I vote third party that's 0 for Romney v 0bama. See the difference now?

Full respect for Mr. Akins bottom line message. So very sad that some here and other GOP puppets have asked Mr. Akin to pull out. God Bless ya Mr. Akin! There’s no way you should drop from the race.........see you in the winner’s circle on November 7th. Mittens, Sarah and the other schlubs will be biting their tongues (and hopefully apologizing for their outrageously foolish kneejerk reactions).

While I think this is a mistake, at this point it serves no purpose to continue to attack Akin. His comment was stupid but he is still much better than Obamacare Claire. Thus, if I were a MO voter, I’d support him.

Having said that, Akin supporters have a lot of work cut out for them. They have to redouble their efforts to get him elected. Sitting back and bitching and crying about how the “Republican Establishment” needs to do more won’t cut it.

I think you have it backwards. Why would he want to associate with them after they revealed their true motives and intentions?

The GOP needs to be on their knees begging him to come back, if he wins.

The GOP has already established what they are, it's the price that needs to be negotiated now.
