This letter is disrespectful to the people of North Dakota. How stupid do you think we are? This stunt was about trying to push your views on to little children. You and the group they represent give everyone in North Dakota a black eye. Just shows they will try anything! Just disgusting, very disgusting...

Sounds just like the analysis I gave awhile back on these boards...how a group at the local county fair had something like that, but it was a display on their table. And my won went right up and began playing with them, but we have to give them back before we left.

my problem with this subject is the pro life party includes so many who would be the last to help a single woman with an unwanted pregnancy. If we could get sucker punched into the Iraq war we can certainly afford to help those single moms. Dems might give single moms too much but i favor that over doing nothing.

Yea I know when I was a small child I really wanted a fetus doll instead of a cabbage patch doll so my mother could explain what pregancy and abortion was before she chose to instead of HAD to. Wow...

"My what a novel idea but then the gal who couldn't keep her wits about her would have to endure this terrible 9 months of looking fat and ugly and that would lower her chances of all night sex parties and drug use.."

There you go again, BDGI, shooting your mouth off. Oh, and as to those Republicans, like you gusty, who support cutting preschool programs, food programs for children, and many other cuts to those who need it over huge subsidies to Big oil, gifts to the rich, and tax cuts for big corporations. Yep, I would let those who want to cut those programs name themselves. Course, you will deny believing in that but that is par for the course.

You assume all those abortions are done by poor little girls and women. got news for a buddy, But now that those making $60,000 are eligible for child care assistance. What a great state/country this is!

I liked Matt's post, "how a group at the local county fair had something like that, but it was a display on their table. And my (s)on went right up and began playing with them, but we have to give them back before we left."

This would have been the better way, instead of what was done.

I really don't know how to approach this question so, I suppose: Loco, where did you get your information on child care assistance? Now, don't be offended, but $60,000 a year? Now, how many children in the family? Gosh, It sounded so good when you wrote it, even gusty gave you a kudo. My, my, I must be looking in the wrong place...Oh, yes, I know, loco, as usual. So, present us with those sites.

yep, you're right. it was not Loco that posted the $60,000/yr qualifier for gummint assistance. It was me. he didn't read the sarcasm that was there, but far more importantly he did show that liberals blindlyaccept every gummint handout, no matter HOW ridiculous. They have NO boundries, limitations or understanding of anything except they are truly latched onto the 'gummint milk'.

Yeah, abortion debates (especially when you're able to hide behind user-names) can get really weird, as evidenced by a solid 80% of the posts below. Again, abortion should be kept safe, legal, and rare.

Actually, if anyone on here has a foothold on stupid, it is you, BDGI. Now, I did research surrounding states: would you like to hear it...Nope, well here it is. family of three--- Federal guidelines for Free (25K) and reduced (36k) meals. Federal poverty level- 18,500. Now, max guidelines for child care help-- SD-34,200, Mich-23,900, Iowa-25,500, Louisana-36,100, Idaho-23,200, Wash St.-38,200, Penn-39,000, and, we could go on and on. But, there are also restrictions based on other factors as well. In addition, if the child is handicapped, the guidelines get bigger. Now, the amounts are based on the average income per state and therefore, ND would be higher. So, did not disappear, I just asked a question.

from the Dept of Human Resources, or the horse's mouth, ..."A family of three now can have a gross income up to $4,915 per month to qualify for the program. Families will also see a reduction in their monthly co-payment, which is the amount they are required to pay towards the cost of care. A co-payment is determined on a sliding scale based on income and family size." Since when does any family making that kind of money need assistance?

BeeMarie--I agree. BDNGI--about your parents: I finished MSU in 71. Tuition and books were $1000. Not per year but all 4. My first house pmt. was $115. We could afford to be proud. Starting wages were $4.50 per hour with full benefits. Compare those costs with costs and wages today. I feel for our young workers today. Sorry we put you in the ghetto. Vote for workers and you could better your world.

BDNGI: Why is it ok for oil workers or investment big bankers to make $100K plus but teachers are scum for wanting $45K. Who paid for the $13 trillion investor loss in 2008? Who caused it? Money does no disappear. If labor was the problem our economy would be booming because wages are low and our spending power has been stagnant for 40 years. The faces on Rushmore would have all tried to ass ure poor/or single moms could keep their babies. They would have deported the likes of Romney and closed Bain. Why should we pay taxes for costs resulting from oil drilling in ND? The Nuns on the bus were not telling lies when they turned the last election around. I have paid $20K out of pocket in medical co-pay, etc. since 2000. I have one of the best ins. policies. Obamacare will save me and many others a bundle. Do you Like $3.69 gas? There are fewer abortions when the Dems have Congress.

Let me see, who is more dependent on government than those bad, bad liberals. How about Farmers? Or, maybe all of the State employees? Well, we also have people who work at the air bases? Now, where else could the Red State of ND get jobs? Seems like the welfare state leads the way in government support and they are Red???? Get real, righties, your people are the main group of people in ND bleeding the government. Oh, yes, there is a huge part of the Federal bureaucracy in ND too, especially those supporting agriculture. Shoot yourself in the foot much, changie/whistler.

What a great and convincing theory, change/whistler. But, incorrect. Let me see, one of the biggest farmers is the Governor. Republican. A great number of those farmers are Red. Now, as to the Farmers Union... Yep, labor union. .bad, bad, bad. So, what shall we do with state and federal workers or those Base people...Your general wave of your wand does not solve the problems. It only shows how little you know about the problems and the solutions.

Legend, it appears with your last post that you left no Democrat talking point untyped. An amazing feat.

However, I'd like to request a source for your very last point: "There are fewer abortions when the Dems have Congress."

That one is just a little harder to swallow.

Loco: It is all mine. I challenge you to find anyone else who said the same words. Switch channels and start searching. More--the biggest irony in our political system is that farmers vote mostly republican and republicans have done the least for them-source is political science class 1968. More original: No one speaks for labor in our capitalistic system--that is why I favor the minimum wage. It would help many single moms. The U.S. chamber of commerce is the union for big business. All but labor are free to raise their prices at will in our private sector system. All but labor have more money for lobbyists to push their cause.
