Your party is pro-life right up until they cut the cord and then you turn your attention to electing judges who promote shortening the waiting time on death row.

I hope I am getting better at seeing the beam in my own eye and not just the mote in others'.

Really, people...what would really happen if we took our beliefs, put them into practice in our minds, and worked them through to a logical conclusion. Not just what we want to see happen, but what would likely happen--in this day and age...here and now.
Pro-life and pro-war? Anti-abortion and pro death penalty? Every one for himself and no compassion?
How's that working so far? Feel free to share your thoughts.
(Boy, I sure have more questions than answers today.)
And...I happen to think that Margaret and Helen are really funny most of the time. (I know not everyone will agree.)
