    We need background check on those running for congress – and those with mental health issues need to be removed.

    You want a police state run by psychologists who decide what is normal and what is unacceptable?

    Maybe just some simple straightforward information from reality so as a voter I could make a well-informed decision.

    Right now, it seems to be the lesser of two evils and in general, democrats tend to do things that help me, the poor and middle class. Whereas, republicans tend to do things that harm me, the poor and middle class.

    With only 5% of the world’s population, the U.S. has 25% of the world’s prison population – that makes us the world’s largest jailer.

    Background checks to make sure that members of Congress are qualified? It seems pretty clear that Michelle Bachman is a blithering fool — but I’m a democrat, and I hold that if people want to vote for her, that’s their right.

    oh REALLY?

    So next time a woman says she needs the government to insure she can get contraception make sure you remember your statement here. "Geez, take a little personal responsibility for your life and stop blaming others for your personal failings.

    LOL

    hahahahahaha ….. yeah ….. at 65 I still have no need. But maybe one day.

    Way to deflect.

    So back to Personal responsibility. Do you think everyone should exercise it? And that would be in regard to deciding sex is the thing to do, realizing that there are consequences, planning to “do the right thing” and take measures to prevent unwanted pregnancy, making a trip to the corner 24 hr gas station to pick up some form of Birth Control (you can get a dozen condoms at CVS Pharmacy for under 6 bucks, contraceptive foam 6oz for 12 bucks and 3 “sponges” for 16 bucks) and be responsible for the cost? Or is it just ok for the pair to say “screw it” the feds won’t cover my BC so we’ll just take that chance?

    Or are you just content playing the fool on this?

    Actions speak louder than words.

    Yes. I am.

    I am also pointing out that there are vast hoards of people that do not, as evidenced in their “actions”.

    I also realize that there are those that are unable to do so through no fault of their own.

    I’m for single payer health care.

    I’m for keeping a large well funded safety net.

    I’m for environmentally sound policy (we are after all put here by – whatever source you prefer – to “fill the earth and subdue it” which – to me – means we are “caretakers” of our planet.

    But then I think our primary goal should be – as a species – to expand our territory and “explode into space” (music reference – you know it?)

    If only all humans could unite with one goal in mind.

    @Bruce4671

    Okay, let’s agree that people should show personal responsibility. What are the implications? Does that mean that no one ever deserves any help? Let’s say you get really sick. Well, you should have taken personal responsibility and taken out adequate health insurance for even very rare health problems. So the government shouldn’t help out. And not only that, private charities shouldn’t help out either. No Lions’ Club benefits for people in trouble, no help from any of the churches. After all, why should the church help you if you haven’t shown personal responsibility? Is that the implication of what you’re saying?

    Why not? Some are some are not. How about you not calling anyone a conservative when you have something derogatory to say?

    @DrCanuck

    See, you are saying that there are no liberals (a political ideology) that do not accept personal responsibility ( a character trait).

    You are wrong.

    You go ahead a call anyone anything you like.
    Show me who you really are.

    @Bruce4671

    Point taken. But tell me more about your feelings about personal responsibility and what you draw from those feelings in terms of public policy.

    @DrCanuck

    well, you are entitled to your opinion. As I am to mine.

    I do not think I am an impertinent mischievous child. Nor do I feel presumptuous.

    However, like everyone else including you, my mental stability is a matter of opinion and/or demonstrated condition and function.

    Why is it that you can not answer simply questions without taking offense and calling out names?

    Perhaps your civilized veneer is wearing thin. Or perhaps you have no support to your claim that liberals are all uniformly personally responsible.

    hmmmm
