What was John Jay's home state?

New York.

John Jay, first Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, was born in New York City in 1745. His family moved to Rye, New York, shortly after he was born.

Jay served on the Supreme Court from 1789-1795, when he was elected Governor of his home state. President John Adams attempted to entice Jay back to the Court, but Jay refused, claiming the Court had little power or prestige. He had also complained about the circuit riding duties incumbent upon the justices at that time, and was reluctant to experience those conditions a second time.

What is the difference between pro-choice and pro-lifer's view about the beginning of life?

At the center of the pro-choice / pro-life debate is the prioritization of values.


The pro-life perspective believes that life - all Human life - is sacred, and must be protected, and therefore an abortion of a live fetus (a "life") is a violation of this belief. The pro-life argument places life itself as a paramount priority, and all other priorities are subordinate to the protection of life.


The pro-choice perspective believes that a person has the right to control his/her own body, and this assertion of control includes a woman's right to terminate an unwanted pregnancy. While the pro-choice perspective also values all life, it weighs the rights of the woman ahead of the rights of the unborn fetus.


These two perspectives - all life is sacred; and a person has the right to control their own body - are rational and well respected perspectives, and seldom come into conflict with each other. But these well meaning beliefs diverge irreconcilably when (1) they intersect in the arena of abortion, and (2) people feel morally compelled to assert that their beliefs are the correct values that all should follow.

If elected to the Office of the President of the United States, he will be the oldest first-term President ever elected. (Although, Ronald Reagan was actually one year older than John McCain when Reagan was re-elected to a second term in the Office of the Presidency). John McCain has been very restrictive with his medical records, so any forecast is based on limited information.The only way to attempt to determine his health status is by looking at life experience and breaking down the facts

* He has out-lived more than 50% of the people diagnosed with his types of skin cancers. * He has survived 6 years as a POW (1967-1973) -surviving mental and physical torture..and that which does not kill you makes you stronger. * He has a long history of Naval and military training which has required him to maintain a high level of physical fitness * McCain's mother is 94 years old and still looking good and spunky as he has good genes.

=== === * He Has Skin Cancer. * He smoked two packs of cigarettes a day for 25 years. * Holding the office of the President of the United States, because of the extra stress, odd hours, and extra travel, ages the holder 3 years for every calendar year, so McCain will have aged to 84 years old at the end of 4 years in office.

* Some people speculate that because former Vietnam POW's were tortured, they are dying at an earlier age than their peers, on that basis John McCain may have less than a 60% chance of surviving a four year term as President. Other Presidents, younger than John McCain, have died in office, but as the disclaimer goes, past performance is not a guarantee of future performance. 20% of America's Presidents (9/43) have come to office unexpectedly in mid-term from the vice presidency due to a death, illness or other circumstance.

Since FDR died, 27% of America's Presidents (3/11) have come to office unexpectedly in mid-term from the vice presidency.
