All the things I find more ipntroamt than my sex organs in casting a vote. And, reproductive functions for men or women come far below the last thing on this list of how I would vote:Federal/state/local debt and getting it under controlEntitlement reform so that there actually is some ability to continue to provide entitlements in the futureMassive federal criminal cases against massive banking fraudBank workouts ala the savings and loan situation since all our big banks are bankruptReinstating glass steagall and enforcing ittax reform, including closing most loopholes that are outdatedEducation reform including ignoring any more excuses from teachers unions as to why they are not teaching ALL our kids.Repealing the frankenstein Obamacare and replacing with competitive health insurance policies and single-payer for all who want itClosing virtually all of our overseas military basesA sensible energy policy that allows for environmentally sensible exploitation of natural resources and r&d for new sustainable resourcesReform of trade policy tied to immigration reform why do we have free trade agreements without free immigration agreementsA foreign policy with consistent credibility ensuring that we, our allies (Israelis, e.g.) and our wannabe allies (saudi arabia, eg) protect basic human rights or cutting tiesAudit of the federal reserve and replacement of the chairmanExpanding Head Start to all children who want it.Campaign finance reformInfrastructure rebuildingCriminal Justice Reform, including legalization of most drugsProtection of Internet freedomMore robust foreign aid (can pay for with some overseas base closings)Complete overhaul of our visa requirements so that we aren't acting like a holes to so many overseas citizensReturn of the Closer just one more yearOr, if we can't get the Closer back at least another equally good show with Kyra Sedgwick.And, yes I care more about those last 2 than whether Romney/Ryan are pro-life.On second thought, maybe I should vote with my sex organs. After all if I had to choose who to have sex with among the 4 men running for office, it would not be Obama/Biden. Comment submit on Fri, 13 Nov 2015 08:52:44
, because you had acsces to good parents, good doctors, good education and good contraception you've never been in the position of dealing with an unwanted pregnancy. Can it be agreed that since not all women have acsces to good doctors, good parents, good education and good contraception that something ought to be done to help them if they find themselves in that situation? Because in that sense there is no economic parity from woman to woman (you obviously are in a better position than lets say a single woman with a low income job) thats why we have social programs and services in place to compensate for the lack of economic parity? Am I right?2. In terms of religious beliefs people are entitled to their beliefs.. but as soon as one starts talking about taking their beliefs and turning them into laws, I think at the very least there needs to be some type of emperical or rational basis behind that belief and I dont think there is enough science to back up the pro-life notion that life begins at conception . If we are going to begin to legislate the rights of a fetus, then I think there needs to be some type of empirical and legal data to back that up (since the fetus really cant be represented otherwise). I think pro-lifers pretty much know that it's not gonna happen, so now the hot button topic is contraception vis a vis Sandra Fluke (i.e. why should we have to pay so you can have casual sex? Because contraception in the eyes of religious dogma is another subtle form of murder too)But IMO it's a moot point because SCOTUS already ruled on it in 1973. I just hate that pro-life is used as leverage to sway women's vote because it's a con game. I think that both left and right politicians know its a con, but its the easiest way to get their base riled up. We should be talking about how fucked up everything else is for the people that are actually already born and in the world. Comment submit on Sat, 14 Nov 2015 05:52:04
As someone who rmeembers Angie fondly from back in the day, I must agree to a great extent with the argument that it is the economy, stupid, both coming and going (sometimes it is a chicken and egg problem). However, I do not share any animosity to anyone here, as I have no reason to. I don't know what the latest statistics are regarding abortion, but due to many factors, anecdotally and in re: previous statistics, the elective abortion rate seems to be greater in those that can afford to choose. This was probably exacerbated by the Hyde amendment (which has been codified in obamacare as well). Just looking around. professional women seem to have fewer children. We are deluged with these fertile Republican families on the teevee, but most families are not living those lives, unless they are fortunate to have the money, love and desire (via religion or some other philosophical impetus) to have large families. However, many poorer families do have quite a few children. It is reminiscent of farm families from years ago, relying on the additional children as a possible bulwark against the scarcity of life. I hope I am not being classist in that statement, however. Of course these are all generalities, and possibly baseless generalities at that, as this woman is too lazy after a long day of work to research the question. All I know is that abortion is necessary and should be available to all regardless of payment options, but should no longer be the frontispiece of politics. Abortion is no fun and may actually be tipping the demographics away from those that would be nice to have more of in society, but it should not be an obsession for anyone. Access to education and opportunity is just as or more important, and should be open to both or all of the sexes involved. http://nqftsjs.com [url=http://khvyqmbnh.com]khvyqmbnh[/url] [link=http://juqrrxn.com]juqrrxn[/link] Comment submit on Tue, 24 Nov 2015 01:02:17
so) that all women must have access; aboitrons being available only to wealthy women who can afford a safe clandestine procedure runs contrary to liberal ideology.Oh, but wait, he’ll be along any minute to tell me that he doesn’t like either party, that they’re both tools of the oligarchy, which is utter bullshit. He doesn’t believe it, and his policing betrays his lies. In fact that's exactly what I believe, which is the reason I renounced my affiliation with the Democratic Party after decades of belonging and contributing to it. I am no longer a Democrat, which is meaningless to you (you don't know me) but was a very sad step for me. I liked being a Democrat for a lot of reasons, but either the party fooled me for years or it changed and either way being part of it today would be lending my support to something I believe is ruining our country.If he really believed what he said he did he’d get up off his lazy ass and DO something to change the world.Look, you 41 year old whippersnapper, I was up off my ass doing what I could to change the world before you were born, joined the front lines of AIDS battles before you were a teenager, and have continued contributing throughout my life. That's true of a lot of people, I'm not special that way and neither are you. One thing I have never done, however, is troll around as you say you have, creating dummy accounts and multiple false characters to, in your words, intimidate and confuse, feed paranoia, waste people's time, raise their blood pressure, and try to diminish a blogger's ability to capture more audience. I speak my mind truthfully and forthrightly, and when I see someone using deceit and intimidation to tear down and tear apart as you do, I do not stand silent.

I read and enjoy here daily- but don't comment much anyorme. The conversations here are informative, argumentative, enlightening and sometimes confusing and or infuriating. Carry on!Up above I saw this comment “liberal”, “progressive”, “fiscal conservative”, “moderate” are all terms bandied about, yet we have neglected to define our terms first. I can tell from the conversations here that people’s concepts of these labels are at variance.I never did see a definition offered though. So I went to Merriam-Webster's dictionary online and got thislibb7erb7alb7ism noun \ˈli-b(ə-)rə-ˌli-zəm\Definition of LIBERALISM1: the quality or state of being liberal2a often capitalized : a movement in modern Protestantism emphasizing intellectual liberty and the spiritual and ethical content of Christianityb : a theory in economics emphasizing individual freedom from restraint and usually based on free competition, the self-regulating market, and the gold standardc : a political philosophy based on belief in progress, the essential goodness of the human race, and the autonomy of the individual and standing for the protection of political and civil liberties; specifically : such a philosophy that considers government as a crucial instrument for amelioration of social inequities (as those involving race, gender, or class)d capitalized : the principles and policies of a Liberal partyPerhaps not the definition of liberal I was expecting, but there it is in a concise paragraph. I found it funny that the economic theory in that definition sounds like what the Republicans spend a lot of time espousing and the political one with the bit about protection of liberties sounds familiar as well.It is not, NOT, meant to be a you must adhere to this definition I looked up in the dictionary statement.( And I will be interested in any other definitions that are offered.) Just a response to my own curiosity that was roused by the conversation here. Partly because after 08 I found out that what I THOUGHT D/Liberal was- wasn't. And partly because I can still hear my Mom saying Look it UP! Why do you think we have dictionaries and an encyclopedia! http://yvsqle.com [url=http://ydxutnuoxpk.com]ydxutnuoxpk[/url] [link=http://oomitfwywqq.com]oomitfwywqq[/link] Comment submit on Fri, 20 Nov 2015 06:26:13
