Pro life at Conception? Deal with ALL the remifications

John McCain was born in Panama.  Is he a natural born US citizen able to be president?  Aside from the silly reality that he was born of US citizens, whose father was a US Navy admiral, stationed on a US Navy base; there is actually talk of passing legislation to close that loophole.


John McCain is pro-life.  His life began t conception.  Now, if he were conceived in the terratorial United States we don't need more useless legislation.

If, on the other hand, Constitutional life begins at birth...well he may need some protection.

The only problen then is:

If Constitutional life begins at conception, then in order for foreigners to secure citizenship for their babies, all they need to do is to cross the border and conceive our little citizens on US soil (or motels) and then go back home.  After birth they only need to present the baby, along with a picture of the conception act which includes a GPS reading...AND BABY IS HOME FREE!!!

John McCain gets to solve the illegal immagration problem  at the same time he resolves the pro-life (welfare) vs. pro-choice (self sustaining) question.  And he doesn't even need to worry about seperation of church and state to do it!

Mind & Brain
  • The study measured the stiffness of blood vessels in middle-aged patients over time.
  • Stiff blood vessels can lead to the destruction of delicate blood vessels in the brain, which can contribute to cognitive decline.
  • The scans could someday become a widely used tool to identify people at high risk of developing dementia and Alzheimer's.

How 'dark horses' flip the script of success and happiness

What defines a dark horse? The all-important decision to pursue fulfillment and excellence.

Big Think Books

When we first set the Dark Horse Project in motion, fulfillment was the last thing on our minds. We were hoping to uncover specific and possibly idiosyncratic study methods, learning techniques, and rehearsal regimes that dark horses used to attain excellence. Our training made us resistant to ambiguous variables that were difficult to quantify, and personal fulfillment seemed downright foggy. But our training also taught us never to ignore the evidence, no matter how much it violated our expectations.
