    President Biden — give Jeffries your blessing to run for president. He will not do so otherwise. You do not realize how old and frail you appear in media; Jeffries would carry your torch with the added strength of looking young, bold, and articulate. Please give up your pride (deserved) and ask this man to run in your place.

    Until L Graham and the rest of them can get pregnant, they cannot tell a female what to do with her body. They are all crooks and robbers and definitely not Christians.

    The reason Republican Politicians are pushing abortion controls is because they are getting $$$ to push the issue. Follow the $$$. $$$ is what supports the extremes in both parties. Stop dark $$$ from entering our politics and extreme politics will wilt away.

    Akeem is demented..
    All citizens (legal) are Americans, despite political fees.
    His ridiculousness of attacking half the citizens but consistently stating “extremism”.
    He is the robot of repeating over and over as if he is convincing the shrink he is crazy as he is in the nuthouse

    CDC shows data of births of unmarried women in Florida is 46.5% unfortunately. And perhaps this is why Durational Alimony changed in 2023 as it may not exceed 50 percent of the length of a short-term marriage, 60 percent the length of a moderate-term marriage, or 75 percent of the length of a long-term marriage in Florida. “We are proud to support life and family in the state of Florida,” said Governor Ron DeSantis. “I applaud the Legislature for passing the Heartbeat Protection Act that expands pro-life protections and provides additional resources for young mothers and families.” Governor of Florida changes on Jan 6th 2027 for Florida. I was merely curious and thought I'd share it. 😉

    Lindsey Graham will be voted out in the next election in South Carolina for his madness towards the women in South Carolina.
