    Those “men” commit at least 90+% of the rapes in the world! And rape of women is just as much about power over others as it is about sex (most studies of rape show it as even more about power, but I am being conservative here). So, just who then has the more testosterone and the libido that produces it???

    Despite the fact that I disagree with his politics, I like Mr. Huckabee; he seems a likable person for the most part. My favorite scene with him (speaking of women/libido/etc.) was when I saw him play the bass (and he’s pretty good at it, too) with Ted Nugent, playing “Cat Scratch Fever”. If you don’t see the irony of a Baptist preacher playing that song, I recommend you read the lyrics.

    Four months ago, a member of the IT dept and his fiancée transferred to our facility from another state. Two months later, she angerly stormed out of the office. She had just found out he was sleeping with the receptionist. It ain’t just women with uncontrollable libidos.

    There’s libido and libidon’t.

    and for those who qant the truth – not just to be seen as “correct”:

    “Our party stands for the recognition of the equality of women and the capacity of women,” Huckabee told his audience at the Republican National Committee’s winter meeting in downtown Washington. “That’s not a war on them. It’s a war for them. And if the Democrats want to insult the women of America by making them believe that they are helpless without Uncle Sugar coming in and providing for them a prescription each month for birth control, because they cannot control their libido or their reproductive system without the help of the government, then so be it.”

    @Bruce4671

    I haven’t really commented on this topic (except for a little joke) because I find it hard to take Huckabee seriously. I do agree that he never said that women can’t control their libido; he said that Democrats think that women can’t control their libido. So he’s slandering Democrats. But underneath his comment there seems to be an assumption that there is something wrong with sexual pleasure. If prescription drugs are going to be covered by insurance, and if birth control pills are prescription drugs, then why shouldn’t birth control pills be covered? Oh, because they allow people to, you know, have sex. Oooh, that’s nasty. There also seems to be some implication that birth control pills are mainly for, you know, loose women. In my experience, which is, I admit, limited, there are married women who use birth control pills, maybe more than “loose” women. I have no complaint if a married woman chooses to exercise her libido and take birth control pills. Evidently this concept is a little beyond our friend Mr. Huckabee. (I also have no problem if an unmarried woman wants to exercise her libido.)

    Thanks, martens; a good article. I enjoyed also the comments to her article; here’s one of them:
    “This is Huckabee’s family planning policy position: “Cross your legs, ladies. I KNOW you can do it! I have faith in your strength, your smarts, and your integrity. Don’t let anyone tell you you’re weak! Don’t let them drag you down and cast aspersions on your virtue and intelligence! Keep your legs crossed, and fight the power!”
    Seriously. This is what he’s saying. He’s doing this because he loves us, ladies. He loves us even more than we love ourselves. WE CAN DO IT!
    Huckabee, you really must think we’re stupid."

    As you know, I am not particularly taken with religion in general as I see it as the root cause of all the terrible things done to our fellow humans. However, I am a spiritual person and wallow in the inconsistency.

    God is a concept and – if the scientific process is ever completed – scientist will “discover” that we are all part of, combined with, dependent on “God” for survival. Simply stated God IS the Universe. As we are constructed of those items that appeared at the inception of the universe – when matter compressed so far that destruction was eminent and since by law matter can not be destroyed only converted to energy and back again …… BOOM.

    Anyway… back on topic …. yes Huckleberry has some strange ideas and yes women should be able to purchase the health care plan of their choice at a reasonable fee to include what ever birth control provision she desires, the fact still remains that it is the woman’s responsibility – not yours or mine – to provide such items.

    If we are to continue on as a species and prosper (live long and prosper my brother) we MUST be willing to afford one and all (planet wide) proper medical care. Not “including birth control” but an all inclusive care. The population must be controlled as well.

    But there is something basically “wrong” with killing your young to attain that end. I’m sure you agree.

    As individuals, we must elevate ourselves to the point that we can indeed control our base instincts (US “society” or “culture” is one of hedonism today) and adopt some simple ideas as guides to the future.

    Quit fighting. Boy the money the world wastes on “protecting” their “way of life” by the whole sale slaughter of innocents.

    Simply exercise principled “love of neighbor”.

    Sadly, I do not think humans are capable and so will not be allowed to survive.

    I have no objection if you want to say that God is the Universe. But God-the-Universe isn’t available for most of the things most people want him/her for — such as caring about human beings, providing a moral code, rewarding good people and punishing bad people, and guaranteeing life after death.

    @lonecat

    And who says that the concept is a “he”?

    Dude, quit thinking in human terms. Get “out of the box” as they say. Look around you and think about what you see.

    What goes around comes around.

    EVERYTHING is a cycle./ Even the universe itself.

    well surly you have heard speculation concerning just when …say a computer … has sufficient processing power to become “self aware” right?

    think about it.

    humans are just a speck of processing power in the great universal computer that is part of “G.O.D.” there are seven billion of use who never ever ever use all of the approximate 86 billion neurons at the same time so …. share.

    Now any reasonable thinker would have to admit that with the billions of stars that have planets within the “Goldilocks” zone that would support life as we know it that the probability that similar life with similar brain capacities would be present on a percentage of them. More processing power ……

    Now considering that life NOT based on our requirements is also possible.

    See how that works?

    (let me go get another……..drink)

    now where was I….

    OH! this is a serious question?

    Hey, yes, Lonecat and I agree often. Sometimes I just want to talk………

    If you truly want to take this discussion further then move ahead to the current Danziger toon.

    That said…..

    You are bending around trying to cover your butt with a fly swatter.

    Self aware? Ever seen a cat with a mirror? Do they recognize that image as themselves or just a strange cat that won’t play of fight? How about apes? Can apes learn and use sign language to communicate with the higher level hairless apes (us) for their personal gain? Does taking action “for themselves” constitute self awareness?
    But let’s jump to your real concern. Is there some singular entity that contemplates the direction and purpose of the universe and then directs events so as to accomplish a specific goal? Perhaps. One could also speculate that at some point in time – since “time” is part of the equation – there was only mass and there was an intelligence that – knowing the “laws” of every branch of physics – set in motion the plan for the universe- sacrificing all that it was to accomplish that plan.

    Are YOU god? Well…..maybe you should ask your therapist (ever notice the two words that make up that one?). BUT you ARE part of the universe and therefore part of what is the concept of god IF we agree that the universe is made up of and powered by the actions and substance of that entity.

    Yes, there IS an interface. I am surprised that you have no idea what it is.

    A concept of God could give us a universal connection. Religion divides us into sects and keeps us from being one in harmony with the universe.

    despite all the many wise men that lived before that tried to move us to love.
