  1. I think adults need to keep adult things like religious belief and sexuality out of kids organizations and just let kids be freaking kids. We need to stop beating them up with dogma and let them just have fun. Being a kid goes by fast, why must they insist on making it harder then it has to be? You can instil a sense of kinship and value for community without a deity regardless of who you want to marry when you grow up. These paranoid adults need to leave kids out of their grudge fest. It bothers me so much because I see it as an attack on the helpless. Kids learn what they're told and shown, sexual and religious discrimination are learned behaviors that have no place in a teaching environment. Our kids deserve better then that.      


  2. If we want to change the system we need to stop rewarding people with cash, food and free medical care for breeding. We need to stress the benefits of contraception, not hand the dumb assholes more when they have more children they can't afford while on assistance to begin with. I know the type you're taking about; shit out a new kid every other year and stay on the system as long as ya can. My neighbor is one of them. 5 kids in 12 years while on assistance since the first time she heard  "congratulations you're pregnant". We need to hold deadbeat absentee parents financially responsible at the very least since they are ditching out on all other parental responsibilities. We need to implement rules to get rid of the leeches and be able to help people who really need temporary assistance. It's supposed to be a hand up not a hand out and not a lifestyle choice my precious...........

  3. A Flood of Suits Fights Coverage of Birth Control

     

    In a flood of lawsuits, Roman Catholics, evangelicals and Mennonites are challenging a provision in the new health care law that requires employers to cover birth control in employee health plans — a high-stakes clash between religious freedom and health care access that appears headed to the Supreme Court.

     

    Health insurance via employer IS NOT FREE. You pay into the pool every pay check. Some people use all of their insurance benefits, some people use it sparingly ie annual exams and sinus infections. Either way its none of their employers fucking business what they do with the benefits they are working and paying for.

     

    Your religious freedom ends where it begins to infringe on the rights and well being of another. Denying someone family planning options because you're a religious asshole should not only be illegal, but it should be looked down upon with such disgust by society at large that these asinine denials will not happen anymore.

     

    The cold hard facts are that a woman needs to be able to control her fertility to obtain a decent education and get somewhere in their field of employment. Unplanned, unexpected pregnancies lead to dropping out of school and/or the work force.They lead to financial problems due to the cost of pre/postnatal care of the mother and the addition of another to feed, clothe, house etc. Pregnancy is physically dangerous to the health/life of the mother in some cases and every woman goes through psychological changes during and after pregnancy. Post partum depression kills women and their infants sometimes too. Having a baby is not the easy peezy rosy happy bullshit they show you on tv and movies.It physically, psychologically, financially and socially changes the life of the woman becoming mom. Its a big fucking deal and things work out for the better for everyone when women can choose when the time is right for her to enter motherhood.

     

    This "I'm not paying for your birth control, contraception is a sin, if you don't want to get knocked up don't fuck so says my gawd!"  crap is pretty sick at its root, just look at it, especially after what you just read above. I'm not paying for your birth control or even though you are contributing and your health plan is for you I remain in charge of what you can have. Contraception gives women control over their fertility and removes them from the ranks of chattel. Abstinence doesn't work for everybody nor should it have to.We should not be ashamed of our biology or the want to control our own bodies. Your gawd is yours, not mine and none of my business. Forcing someone else to live by your religious doctrine is religious persecution d bag. This isn't about contraception, this is about contraception giving women more if not total control of their own fertility and thus their lives. Dogma and patriarchy have been married since the get go. This bullshit needs to stop for the sake of all humanity.

  4. hmmmm...... seeing as welfare doesn't exist anymore it is called TANF Temporary assistance for Needy Families

    Lets go a step further and look at who is on TANF..... oh to what do my wondering eyes appear.... ppl with children!!!!!!!!!!!  (a lot of single mothers trying to do their job and the deadbeat dads job too)

    telling ppl down on their luck that they can't even dream of escaping poverty is sick, malicious, repressive, disgusting bullshit. No, assistance recipients should not waste cash assistance on frivolous things, but when you rob people of hope they might as well be cattle because that's what you are treating them like.

  5. I love this is a big fuckin deal Biden, but I also understand his senior status and a want to be with family. Hill doesn't have grandkiddies yet so hopefully she's still willing to serve when the time comes. It should have been her, PBO can organize, but Hillary can lead. I'm sure other qualified dems will step up whether she does or not, but my concern is that this will be our last chance at electing her president. If she were to throw her hat in the ring and be savaged by her own party AGAIN the dems would lose boatloads of women voters to the independents/green. There is an all out war on women's liberties and the smartest way to combat it is to elect educated female officials. Women know this and they vote....

  6. Lost, that's what ppl have against him. The show was crap and it is anchor around his neck.

    Compound that with him doing Star Trek- which scared and enraged people after the Lost debacle- it attacked and offended ppls inner child as ST is one of those things that ppl grew up on. I liked the relaunch and am hopeful he will do well with Star Wars.

    Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome (a prequel to the critically acclaimed hit series, Battlestar Galactica) takes place in the midst of the First Cylon war. As the battle between humans and their creation, the sentient robotic Cylons, rages across the 12 colonial worlds, a young, talented fighter pilot, William Adama (Luke Pasqualino), finds himself assigned to one of the most powerful battlestars in the Colonial fleet: the Galactica. Full of ambition and in pursuit of the intense action that the Cylon war promises, Adama quickly finds himself at odds with his co-pilot, the battle-weary officer Coker (Ben Cotton). With only 47 days left in his tour of duty, Coker desires an end to battle just as much as Adama craves the start of it. Though they clash at first, the two men forge an unlikely bond when a routine escort mission with an enigmatic passenger (Lili Bordan) turns dangerous and becomes a pivotal one for the desperate fleet.

     

    Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome is available as ten, 7-12 minute episode chapters viewable exclusively on Machinima's premium channel, Machinima Prime (YouTube.com/MachinimaPrime). It will then air as a two-hour movie on Syfy on February 10 at 9/8c, and later see an unrated release on Blu-ray, DVD, digital download, PPV and VOD.

     

    It was pretty good. Too bad the fuckers wont give us a first cylon war. Young Bill Adama kicks ass

  8. I saw the article the other day and some of the retarded comments; my hope for humanity fell another .02%

    We either build sea walls and artificial reefs to protect vulnerable areas from storm surge - very expensive and only effective for some of our coast, or we fucking move off the coastline.

    The infuriating reality is that the baby boomer gen has wiped their ass with the planet. Now gen x is scrambling to leave their kids and grandkids a smaller shit taco.
