• Why can't libs live and let live?

    If libs don't want a gun, don't buy one. You can be the target with no defense, if that's your choice. End of story.

  • Is Big Media interested in broadcasting the truth?

    Please spare me the comments about "cut and paste". I rarely see such a comment applied to conservative postings. No "little girl" remarks either, I am probably old enough to be your grandmother!

    Please spare me the comments about "cut and paste". I rarely see such a comment applied to conservative postings. No "little girl" remarks either, I am probably old enough to be your grandmother! Good on Jon Stewart for showing the ‘political infotainment’ arm of the Big Media, once again, how to do their jobs. Last night on The Daily Show, Stewart’s guest was Newt “Like The Reptile” Gingrich and they were discussing trying terrorist suspects under American criminal law. Newt claimed that the ‘Christmas Underwear Bomber,’ Umar Abdulmutallab, shouldn’t be tried in a U.S. court and had no rights since he wasn’t an American citizen. (Not true, incidentally — even foreign nationals have rights when charged with a crime in our country, but a topic for another time.) At any rate, Stewart sensibly countered that the ‘Shoe Bomber’ Richard Reid was tried and convicted by the Bush Administration in an American courtroom and then Newtie, as usual, blatantly lied to make his point – he said Reid was a U.S. citizen and Abdulmutallab was not. Stewart let it pass as I yelled in futility at the TV, “Bullshit, Reid was a British subject!” Following the commercial break, however, after the interview had ended, Stewart came back on to say his staff had checked and Reid was not an American citizen but a British national. This was a simple, unbiased fact, and it made Gingrich look like the horse’s *** he is and laid bare his lame argument to the light of day. If every ‘real’ news show adopted this practice of fact-checking guests and informing the audience where they lied during the show, not only would it better serve the news consumer and the country, but it would have the side benefit of keeping politicians honest – if pols knew that at the end of the show (ideally accompanied by a crawl across the bottom of the screen), their falsehoods would be exposed they might become more circumspect in their habitual dishonesty. BTW, I also think would be good for ratings. Of course, this will never happen on Fox News, if only because 45-minutes of each hour would be taken up correcting the lies of the first fifteen minutes, and most of the other networks would shy away since it would cost them ‘access’ to prominent politicians, not to mention discomfit their corporate bosses, but just think – no more Republicans spreading fraud on national TV and fewer quisling Democrats trying to justify their cowardice! No doubt this measure would pass by a massive majority if subjected to a national referendum. Since that’s not going to happen, all you can do is write or call your favorite media outlet and refer them to Jon Stewart’s interview with Newt Gingrich on Tuesday, Feb. 9, 2010, but don’t expect miracles – the Big Media will likely change the same day Newtie the Lizard bangs the drum for universal single-payer health care.

    One way I am making our wedding unique is by foregoing that boring old "you are cordially invited..." crap in the invitations. Instead we are thinking about putting... Boy met girl. For the rest of the story join us on (date) as Me & Him become husband and wife. then the rest of the details. Any other suggestions for something along these lines? Uh... "killyourtelevision", I dont think anyone who is invited to my wedding will A. be confused as to what the invitation is for or B. think they are "being invited to an orgy". Maybe in your family, but not mine lady! Also, if you didn't gather from my headline of "desperate to make my wedding unique".. why in the world would I want to follow the "etiquette" that you so strictly rely on? I detest cookie cutter weddings which is basically exactly the invitation that you have described. Sorry to rain on YOUR parade! On a lighter note - thanks to those of you who thought the idea was cute. I loved it and I'm like 99% positive that we're going to go with it. People, I'm not actually making my invitations say "me and him". Thats ridiculous. I simply put that there in place of our actual names for privacy purposes. Our invitations will certainly have our names on it.

  • Why do some woman have mulitiple abortions?

    I was looking for some information about government funded abortions, which this "health care" legislation would allow. I'm not too happy about that. In my research, I came across this Sept 2008 article from Time magazine. This is what they said, Statistically one in three U.S. women will have an abortion in her lifetime, the study found, but that risk does not apply to all women equally. Women who choose abortion are more likely to be in their 20s or 30s than in their teens or 40s; they're more likely to have children already; and they're also more likely to be black or Hispanic than white. The abortion rates in 2004 were 50 abortions per 1,000 black women and 28 abortions per 1,000 Hispanic women, compared with 11 out of every 1,000 white women. "This is the first time that somebody's really sat down and said, in this 30-year time period, what have been some of the changes in characteristics of women obtaining abortions?" says Rachel Jones, a senior research associate at the Guttmacher Institute and the project manager for the new study. In 2004, 60% of women who had abortions had already given birth to at least one child, an increase from 50% in 1989, while 47% of women who had an abortion had already undergone the procedure at least once before. 47%?? What to hell is wrong with this picture? Now the government wants me and every other taxpayer to fund stupidity? How do you feel about this? Do you agree that we should fund abortions, given the fact that 47% of them are the result of a person having nothing above the brain stem. I'm pro choice. I am not pro "go ahead and do it again, and your neighbors will pay for it."

  • Should churches be required to pay taxes?

    Why should churches (any of them) be exempt from taxes? This question isn't aimed at xtians at all. Its aimed at ANY and ALL religions. Why should they get a free pass when they earn so much money? Its not fair IMO.....who else thinks so?

    I was happy to find Yahoo Answers, wedding sections especially because I thought it was a great way to see what other brides think and get some sound advice, different perspectives. But I've noticed that there are some regulars here who seem to go out of their way to be....judgmental and even rude. Their "different perspective" seems to be that the asker is lame, wrong, dumb....I even had one recently accuse me of judging all men harshly (what?!) Have you noticed some are often critical or down right insulting to the brides asking questions, when they have no reason to be? I've not asked many questions, but I have read many and the same users tend to be outgoingly judgmental....why is that? Do they sincerely think the majority of us are crap compared to them? Not all of us here are that way- some give advice that leans in the positive but doesn't lag in honesty- which is great! I do realize those who I am speaking of will probably use this as yet another opp to be judgmental, but hopefully I get some nice answers too= ) Sometimes we all might give advice/answer that the asker doesn't want to read- and that it completely fine!!! I am talking about those who 9/10 give the most judgmental and rude answers. Even if I agree with them- I still wonder, what is her problem...is she okay upstairs, really? We all have given an answer that may not be sweet BUT there are a handful that ALWAYS give rude answers. You know?
