Truly in their best interest?

June 12, 2013

The Obama administration said this week that it will comply with a judge’s order that allows girls of any age to buy emergency contraception without a prescription....

centerish, you missed my almost apology for messing up. I'm not going to grovel...

And as far as "angry blogging," I've seen plenty of lefties doing that successfully, here and elsewhere.

You know what? You are absolutely correct about this: I can blog anything I want, as can you.

What a great country we live in...

Isn't it so nice, loco, that you can blog anything you want and most times without any factual basis but then become indignant when you are called on it. You are a typical right winger with lots of anger/hatred. But, you do have arrogance, that is for sure.

Winning those hearts and minds again, eh, Rugby?

centerish, I'll try not to mess up quotes anymore, if I've got the time and inclination to do so.

If it wasn't for namexxx dragging out the oldie-but-goodie Akin quote again, trying to make some kind of point, I wouldn't be here, would I?

Like Ollie always said, "Well, here's another nice mess you've gotten me into."

You are a real pip, loco. You posted an inaccurate quote. What is wrong with your picture. I assume you are responsible for your own postings, so keep them factual.

centerish, one of your buddies started this whole Akin quote thingy. I was trying to keep things accurate, in spite of another trip down memory lane for namexxx, who's quoted Akin several xxx before.

As usual, liberals don't get blamed for anything. Thanks for being consistent, centerish.

Speaking of living in the past, loco..You are quoting from almost a year ago on a guy who lost and has many more quotes to choke on. Good one on ya.

Lets be a tad accurate-- without the added brackes/attemped clairifications. “It seems to me, from what I understand from doctors, that’s really rare,” Akin told KTVI-TV. “If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down. But let’s assume that maybe that didn’t work or something: I think there should be some punishment, but the punishment ought to be of the rapist, and not attacking the child.” Well, as long as we are here, how about another quote from this fine Republican. “I think NBC has a long record of being very liberal and at the heart of liberalism really is a hatred for God and a belief that government should replace God.”

From CNN 8-22-2012

"Akin has apologized for his remarks.

"'I had heard one time a medical report that it's hard to get, it's harder for somebody to get pregnant under those conditions,' he told radio host Sean Hannity on Monday. 'I don't believe that's true now. In fact, I've checked the facts and that's wrong. I was just wrong in that statement.'"

Live in the past much, namexxx?

Let's have the rest of the quote from Todd Akin, if we're going to quote him at all...

“From what I understand from doctors, that (pregnancy from rape) is really rare. If it’s a legitimate [a real] rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down. But let’s assume that maybe that didn’t work or something. I think there should be some punishment, but the punishment ought to be on the rapist and not attacking the child.”

Even if his supposition about the female body "shutting it down" was incorrect, I agree with his last point, that you punish the rapist. In spades.

Abortion is not the same as removing a sliver. Poof, the pain is gone. Depression, anger, remorse, quilt, follow abortion. Should the guy be sentenced? yes, it would be great if the perpetrator had to don pregnancy belly and attire for the duration of the pregnancy he caused. :-)

Thanks for living up to your name, Veritas!

I'm only here to pick on the MDN, but I suppose if my opinion is called out I'll respond (unlike the aforementioned paper).

Missy1- doesn't your last statement provide validation for my point? I agree Billy has a responsibility. For arguments sake, let's say Billy is more than just irresponsible, lets make him abhorrent. Billy got Becky drunk at a party and took advantage of her. Becky realizes it the next day. What then? Abortion? Not in this State. Ohhhhh, prayer, that's right.

Wait . . . I thought you people wanted government OUT of our lives.

So let's get this straight . . .

You want a smaller government, that controls medicine but stays out of health care -- that doesn't collect data and doesn't do background checks but thwarts secret acts of terrorism.

And you want it on the cheap -- because you're also nervous and fearful about the potential effects of a deficit.

LOL Minot. Then put little Becky on the pill at age 9. She may not have kids till later if she does not get cancer. Better yet get her an IUD,at age 9. At least she won't have 6 kids before age 30, and on every time of welfare there is. And let little Billy go free, and no worries. Or maybe you could figure out a procedure for little Billy, so he could be free from worries and have fun at the same time. I have not seen so many worthless dad's in my whole life, as soon as Child welfare catches up to them, poof, they're gone.

Or maybe, just maybe, some adolescents could actually use their brains instead of other body parts to make an important decision or two.

It's as though nobody should possess any self-control or any reason to be responsible anymore. If this is what it's like to live in the liberal universe, stop the world and let me go elsewhere. I know, you won't miss me.

Play this scenario out over time. The MAP isn't available, and little Becky has a kid at 15 years old. Repeat that process several times until Becky now has 6 kids before 30, and living off "the system". Who here doesn't know of someone in this situation?

I wonder what the MDN would think of their stance then? They'd complain about OBAMA! giving money away, people need to get a job, etc. I suppose it would be a sustainable business plan for the MDN.

Perhaps we should simply "pray" instead of taking intellectual and scientific action. Ugh.

I suppose the poor little buggers will have to earn the money to pay for the pills from hooking on the street corners too. I suppose the next great idea will be to legalize teen prostitution so they can get the little lost souls paying taxes for their pleasures.

Really, willgrr. Way back, a boy's taking responsibility was helped along by a girl's father and his shotgun, if the fella wasn't willing to step up to it himself. Don't you remember? And even in my day, newly adolescent boys were given the following blunt yet sage advice: keep it in your pants. (Hope I don't get bumped for saying it.)

Maybe all you brilliant people out there should explore a pill for the young boys out there to take everyday. It doesn't matter if it is harmful in the later years. At least they won't mess up the little girls life. Make a pill for them.

We have here a relatively benign solution to teen pregnancy and all the mdn can do is dredge up vague culture war baloney. The choices are these...teen pregnancy and an abortion, teen pregnancy and a baby or no pregnancy. Ask a parent...they'll be disappointed but relieved two years after what might have been.

Right, Missy. Our culture has changed enough that responsibility for boys isn't as important as it was in the past.
