Thousands Protest Roe V. Wade Decision

of course the 'american' economy and the stock market woes sidelined the 35th anniversary of a landmark moment in american law & politics in the news reporting media.

from the new york times:

Sisters Erin Gordon, 31, and Molly Flaherty, 21, recalled going to the annual march known as the ''March for Life'' with their parents when they were growing up on New York's Long Island.

Gordon, who now lives in Richmond, Va., said she enjoyed the feeling of unity at the march.

''You really see that the abortion laws in the United States really don't reflect the heart of America,'' she said.

no, they represent the wisdom of a nation.

for a country with so many that are stuck in the dark ages when it comes to this issue and the so-called "rights" of all unborn life, it's incredible that the very same people vote for a government that has dismantled help programs and care for those unfortunates that have already been born.

these are the programs that suffer when they hand out tax cuts.

john edwards may be the best man for the job when it comes to free health care, but americans just don't want to pay taxes. tax has become a dirty word in the USA. until then, it's everyman, or woman for themselves. even now, as the country bleeds to the tune of $2 billion a week it hasn't got in iraq, the republicans still want to cut taxes!

so contrary to what all the presidential candidates say (except john edwards), the richest nation on earth is not the greatest nation on earth.
