  1. Folks, you have to realize who you are dealing with, and don’t get so bent out of shape with what they say.
    Bill Clinton, in 1994 proclaimed, “say whatever we want, it drives them crazy”.
    I actually voted for Slick Willey his first term.
    I am wiser now, and I now know my enemy: Liberal. Progressive. Democrats.
    Their message and tactics never change.

  2. Hey Nikki, If you don’t know whether transgender women, or biological males, can obtain an abortion or give birth, then you’re not Smart EITHER, so, let me help you, the answer is NO, they CAN’T, They Never Could and NEVER WILL.

    I’m Pro-Life, always have been BUT, if I were Governor, Id say NO Abortions after 12 Weeks unless Her Primary Doctor states it is needed to save the Mothers Life BUT, if it is later found out that the Mothers Life was not in danger, that Doctor loses His/Her License. PLUS: Stop all Governments Funding to Planned Parenthood and ALL other Clinics that perform Abortions.

    If you read the Border Security Bill, it did NOTHING to Secure the Border, NOTHING.

  3. If Nikki Fried doesn’t know that a male cannot give birth or have an abortion, the Democratic party has more problems than they think. You don’t have to be a doctor to know that is a Fact. Maybe she needs to go back to middle school and take Biological Science again. SMH
