CNN’s John King did his best the other night, producing a question from one
of his viewers:
“Since birth control is the latest hot topic, which candidate believes in
birth control, and if not, why?”
To their credit, no Republican candidate was inclined to accept the premise
of the question. King might have done better to put the issue to Danica

By Steve McCann
The left invariably frames its policy pronouncements under the mantle of so-
called "rights" that only the government can guarantee. The implication
being that all citizens are entitled and guaranteed, by virtue of living in
the United States, to what is defined as a "right." Much of this current
approach by the so-called Progressives stems from the State of the Union
address delivered by Franklin Roosevelt in 1944 in which he laid out what is

Gun control advocates have it all wrong. They believe the Constitution is a

They believe scare tactics will convince us that placing burdens on gun

He nailed it. Too many Americans sadly have no idea what a “right” is

Rights impose prohibitions on people’s behavior. Needs impose obligations.
That’s the litmus test.
I may not deny you the right to your life by walking up to you (or anyone
else) on the street, taking out a gun and shooting them. We each have the
right to our own lives, so long as we do not infringe on anyone else’s
right to the same. Those who do infringe, we consider criminals.

理呢?。。。
合同的年限呢,其实取决于球员的身份在哪个category里,根据不同的条件,一共有16

满足以下条件球队就可以用Lary Bird Exception签下自己球队的自由球员
1.过去三个赛季没有被裁过,也没有作为自由球员换过球队
2.如果球员被交易的话,Bird rights也同时转给新的球队

2.球员合同可以比较长(5年),每年的工资最高涨幅也是最高的(7.5%)

that there is no constitutional problem in limiting marriage to a man and a

Such an outcome probably would trigger a political campaign in California to

Texas, known for its cowboy ways, just may shock you when you learn the
state is not as pro-gun as it seems.
While the state remains a Republican stronghold, Texas lags behind several

of handguns and ... 阅读全帖
