could it be that YOU having had no experience with a successful government (ours has been nothing but conflict after conflict for the last 30 plus years) can not recognize a candidate that is not just another cog in the wheel or brick in the wall?What is it that you want? Do you want government to dictate to you what is “acceptable” to say or think? That is exactly what is happening today.America was founded on certain principles. As citizens, we are supposed to be able to worship and practice whatever faith we choose in what ever way we see fit short of killing, stealing or lying. And yet we see today that a religious person may not choose to follow their faith simply because someone without that faith is inconvenienced. A cake? Really? There is only one baker in town?But we are willing to swallow (heh heh) anything that a politician says even though you know for a fact they are lying.Hillery (named after Sir Hillery of mountain climbing fame, Remember? Fame that came after Everest in the 50"s But one big hole has been poked in the story over the years, both in cyberspace and elsewhere: Sir Edmund became famous only after climbing Everest in 1953. Mrs. Clinton, as it happens, was born in 1947.)Why sould anyone even consider this woman a viable candidate. The same can be said for most candidates such as but not limited to Huckebee

Well, IN MY OPINION, abortion is the last resort to a medical situation that would end in death for the mother and child and I know that it is an unpopular opinion BUT I have no desire to force my opinion on any other person. Planned Parenthood is a concept that we should embrace. After all, the root cause of every single problem we have is overpopulation. And so, controlling population growth is paramount to survival at this time. (still just my opinion).Education and contraception should be funded by government since both contribute to the success of the “commune”. The goal should be to reduce, and possibly eliminate, the need for abortion.Genetics and our ability to manipulate our own DNA (an ever increasing skill) should also be working toward population control and advancement of the species. After all, GOD (should you believe in a prime cause) or science (god IS a scientist) dictates we adapt or die.The founder of PP had these same ideas…sort of.From and article on Margaret…..Margaret Higgins Sanger (born Margaret Louise Higgins, September 14, 1879 – September 6, 1966) was a American birth control activist, sex educator, writer, and nurse. Sanger popularized the term “birth control”, opened the first birth control clinic in the United States, and established organizations that evolved into the Planned Parenthood Federation of America.As part of her efforts to promote birth control, Sanger found common cause with proponents of eugenics, believing that they both sought to “assist the race toward the elimination of the unfit.”96 Sanger was a proponent of negative eugenics, which aims to improve human hereditary traits through social intervention by reducing the reproduction of those who were considered unfit.97Sanger’s writings echoed her ideas about inferiority and loose morals of particular races. In one “What Every Girl Should Know” commentary, she references popular opinion that Aboriginal Australians were “just a step higher than the chimpanzee” with “little sexual control,” as compared to the “normal man and Woman.”80Isn’t it strange that minorities seem to be the ones that use PP services the most…………..Love your children, if you can’t afford a child don’t make one, get your hormones under control and by all means support contraception.

that last thing lonecat, was a generalization not a reflection of my opinion of you personally.
yeah… that memory is shared by many. I was born, raised and continue to live in the south. It’s funny, even on the wrong side of the tracks if you kept your head down (a “slave” reference), trouble seemed to happen to the other guy.But you learn by observation and hone your skills through repetition and soon you can be invisible while you just do what you want with no restrictions. But really, if your main thrust comes from the desire to show love for all your brothers and sisters then what harm will you do?Rather than screaming the virtues of a specific culture, shouldn’t we all be a contributing member of the HUMAN race working together to advance the species?No, we would rather segregate ourselves by color or sexuality or “gender identity” or even sports teams willing to fight anyone who differs from our narrow view to the death.All the prophecies point to an apocalypse rained down on the heads of mankind BY mankind (fire and brimstone from heaven, pestilence, famine and war). What do you see that would prove the prognosticators wrong?Even here on this little smattering of human input, you have to have moderators to censor because of the vile hate spewed over a difference of opinion and you don’t even know what the other person really means since you won’t really listen to anything other than a parrot of YOUR opinion. Love is all you need but hate is all you understand………
LOL me too…..

so all you guys that SAY we need to quit messing with “nature” seem to think it ok to confine cats indoors. Some take away claws AND the ability to reproduce. Cats are born to hunt let them have a little dignity

So our military is unable to defend themselves because they are not legally able to carry arms. Yeah…been there done that.Why? Because our military can not “operate” in a military capacity on us soil by law. That is so the government can not mount an immediate armed response to civilian protest though people at Kent state would beg to differ.So NOW the people have decided to respond to the very real threat made and carried out by ISLAMIC extremists by standing as a civilian armed force (militia which every citizen of a certain age is a part of according to the constitution) between those that threaten our nation and those that protect it in the rest of the world.And all YOU can do (you know who you are) is ridicule the very actions that have delivered this nation from attacks in the past. Where will you be and what will you be doing when the beat goes down?

Gee, I’m confused. Man is a part of nature, being naturally evolved (according to scientists) from primate ancestors through billions of years. So isn’t anything done by man a “natural” event?Notice I do not disagree that man has an will continue to impact the environment. Just that since man is a natural phenomenon, the impact is “natural”….. think about it.So, perhaps you can force people to quit using fossil fuels, but how many people will THAT kill since most everywhere in the world using some form of combustion is the only way to produce energy and thus raise quality of life…think about it.OH that’s right…carbon credits where rich people pay a fee to produce carbon and poor people get a pass to produce more of the same. How EXACTLY does that help? And of course we have billions of years of records to go by…or wait make that hundreds of actual records and billions of years of research into the geological record with findings that support the fear but not a single thing about the cooling periods that went along with the warming ones. So yeah, the climate is changing. So it’s a bad thing? If all the water trapped in land bound ice melted, the land mass would be reduced substantially. Why my home state would be cut in half (I would have water front property… finally). Lot’s of small island nations would disappear … I wonder if the ancient cities found under hundreds of feet of ocean that were build on the dry land around during the time ice covered half the northern hemisphere worried about sea level?When are we going to quit pointing fingers yelling and calling each other names and figure out a way to do what all good viruses do and spread out to other hosts?

This is from 2005. Maybe some of you would like to read it.http://www.johnstonsarchive.net/environment/waterworld.html“A common public perception is that global warming will accelerate the melting of polar ice sheets, causing sea level to rise. A common scientific position is that the volume of grounded Antarctic ice is slowly growing, and will damp future sea-level rise. At present, studies supporting recent shrinkage or growth depend on limited measurements that are subject to high temporal and regional variability, and it is too early to say how the Antarctic ice sheet will behave in a warmer world.”So while I would have to move north (in another 15K years should I live so long) and islands would indeed disappear, there would be ample water for irrigation of the remaining land mass (should we learn how to actually live and work together) to feed us all.Yes deserts would bloom and each would live under his/her own fig tree….
