    I'm having a time out until I can learn some manners.
    i just had an "argument" with a female co-worker on whether or not schools should give HPV vacinations.

    She didn't think so, because since it can only be transmitted by sex, its a moral issue, not a health one. This is also where she revealed she didn't think contraceptives should be taught in school.

    This is of course requardless to the FACT that kids who are not taught about contraceptives are much more likely to get pregnent or STD's (HPV being one of them.)

    -So you can't teach safe sex.
    -you can't vaccinate to make sex safe.
    -teenagers have to keep their babies (many of whom, don't want to be parents)
    and to top it all off, They dont want to pay for your welfare cause you can't get a job or education, because, ya know, the whole kid thing.....

    I swear to god, if this election comes down to Hillary, or Huckabee, I'm not even gonna wait till november, i am moving the fuck out of this country.

    How could something possibly be called life when it is nothing but a collection of cells with no working organs? If I cut off my finger and set it on the table, that finger is no longer a living being. As callous as this sounds, a fertilized egg that could not possibly be thinking is not alive.

    And because it's in Georgia he'll get plenty of support. He better stay the hell away from my city.

    On the bright side, Fred Thompson has dropped out of the race for president. He too wanted to revisit Roe v. Wade, challenge and overturn it.

    Huckabee is a prime example of why the separation of Church and State needs to be strictly enforced, preferably on pain of death. He is simply following the Catholic Church's stance that life begins at conception.

    Personally, I belive that life starts at 40. :)

    Omfg. If only I could understand what is going on in the minds of these wannabe-moral fascists. Not educating about sex + banning contraceptives => many teenagers getting babies who did not even know that they were having sex when sicko uncle preacher touched them.
    I despise everyone who bears a flag of righteousness and morale in front of them. All too often does a sick pervert raping children hide behind such a mask.
    On a side note, how can someone 'advocating' life be a member of the NRA? Both Romney and Huckabee are members. Maybe it's because unbelievers and animals are not supposed to have a soul and can therefore be killed without tainting one's own soul? Fuck them hypocrits.

    Holy shit.

    Fucking brilliant. It's not bad enough that I can't legally buy a dildo around here, but I also can't keep myself from getting pregnant or ill. Is that legislation supposed to be preventing the sale of CONDOMS too? Oh, good, so not only should we all be pregnant, we should all be diseased and pregnant.

    Seriously, where do I sign up for deportation from this country?

    Maybe only spermacidal ones will be banned!

    Sorry, you can't leave until you put in five years helping carve Jesus onto Mount Rushmore. Or three years being a hero fighting for our freedoms in Occupied Iran.

    It's not the whole country, just this one crazy bastard. Well, him and the Pope. "Every Sperm Is Sacred, especially the diseased ones." I do believe Jesus said that?

    I see this as a good thing in the long run. Give the Christian Jihad a state to completely fuck over, let birth rates state assistance and poverty skyrocket to a point of boil over leading to bankruptcy, violence and chaos as the rational types exodus to places more evolved, and then maybe we can be done with self righteous religious politicians who think their beliefs trump your rights.

    A thought experiment I heard posed once for the life begins at conception crowd.

    You're in a burning building, you can save one of the following but not both: a new-born child or a flask containing twenty frozen embryos. Which do you choose?
  3.  (593.13)
    All those fine young people at my university who parroted their parents/priest's beliefs about abortion would always fall back to saying "We just want to save a life! We're not trying to outlaw birth control or anything. That would be ridiculous." and accuse those of us who supported choice of being "hysterical".

    When dealing with people who think dinosaurs are some kind of practical joke, or whose idea of marriage apexed with Ozzy and Harriet, you're not dealing with rational people. Trust me, I've heard one of these crazies argue that condoms encourage sexually transmitted disease.

    That's a bad test... or rather it's not a test of what you think it is.

    Even if you *know* the embryos are just as good as the child, your monkey brain's going to reach for the kid even if you'll regret it later. Now, if you're talking about someone who knows they're not going to be able to do anything with rapidly thawing embryos, they'll reach for the kid even faster.

    Back to the Huck: He's a funny guy who believes in Biblical Inerrancy. He's great for fundamentalists, the irrational and those of us with a dark sense of humor. I'd love to have a chat with him and Ron Paul... after they've given up on elected office.

    What do you do about pro lifers who think that pro choice is the same as pro abortion.

    It should fill your heart with glee that Huckabee's campaign is facing financial problems and some staffers have quit or are foregoing paychecks to try and stay in it.

    Legalized abortion is "a national nightmare that needs to end soon," Huckabee told several hundred people huddled under umbrellas in a chilly drizzle.

    The sooner you crawl back to your cave the better.

    Yeah, just like fire alarms and fire extinguishers encourage fires by lulling people into a false sense of security.

    "Huckabee went down to Georgia, he was looking for some rights to steal.
    He was in a bind 'cos he was way behind: he was willin' to make a deal."

    I have to point out that this is a brilliant summary. This should actually be a real song.

    Huckabee went down to Georgia, he was looking for some rights to steal.
    He was in a bind 'cos he was way behind: he was willin' to make a deal.
    When he came across this young woman sexy and proud and playin' it hot.
    And Huckabee jumped upon a political stump and said: "Lady, let me tell you what:
    "I bet you didn't know it, but I'm a politician too.
    "And if you'd care to take a dare, I'll make a bet with you.
    "Now you make human rights look good, girl, but give ol' Huck his due:
    "I bet an election for "right" to steals your "rights", 'cos God says I'm better than you."
    The girl said: "My name's freedom and it might be a sin,
    "But I'll take your bet, you're gonna regret, 'cos I'm the best that's ever been."

    Freedom polish up your cash and pander really hard.
    'Cos hells broke loose in Georgia and Huckabee deals it hard.
    And if you win you get to keep your rights and your gold
    But if you lose, Ol' Huck'll get your soul.

    Huckabee opened up his case and he said: "I'll start this show."
    And fire flew from his fingertips as he straightened up his bow.
    And he pulled his hands across the strings and the pundits hissed.
    Then a band of lawyers joined in and it sounded something like this.
    When Huckabee finished, Freedom said: "Well you're pretty good ol' man.
    "But if you'll sit down in that chair, right there, and just take the witness stand"

    Fire up the telly, politicians run.
    Pundits in the house of George Washington.
    Lobbists in the capitol, handing out dough.
    "Mister, where's your sound bite"
    "I don't know"

    Huckabee bowed his head because he knew that he'd been beat.
    He laid that golden tongue on the ground at Freedom's feet.
    Johnny said: "Huck just come on back if you ever want to try again.
    "I told you once, you son of a bitch, I'm the best that's ever been."

    Fire up the telly, politicians run.
    Pundits in the house of George Washington.
    Lobbists in the capitol, handing out dough.
    "Mister, where's your sound bite"
    "I don't know"
