    We the people?

    Trump has said release it. His supporters say release it. Everyone is saying release it Not one layperson, not in Washington, is against releasing the documentation that doesn't reveal US secrets. The Right want to settle this matter once and for all, and the Left wants to find the smoking gun. So what the issue? If they do release it, great! All will be seen. If they don't, then the Left revamps the Russian Collusion story for the next 5 years.

    Net Neutrality is Virtually Dead and That's Very Bad

    Checking in at end of year. No major backlash or issues. It feels pretty pre NN in here.

    NRA is at it again

    In complete honesty. I don't understand how this is the NRA's fault. They advocate for maintaining a right, they didn't kill these people.

    NRA is at it again

    My apologies, I was referencing the physicians paper in the NRA story. Of course we don't ignore it, but neither too can we force them to quit. Any abuse of drugs and alcohol all nurses wish would stop. We all recognize that its a problem. However we can't pull the bottle from their lips, or meth out the pipe. So we do what we can, educate. We advocate for understanding of the health risks and benefits of stopping the behavior.

    Why are the victims always blame?

    Thank you. So yes, to improve the ability to find, judge, and punish these awful people who sexually assault individuals, we need to encourage a safe reporting system. If we encourage everyone who is a victim to report, then proper process can take place. Hotline, Text message based reporting, and giving victims the training and resources to protect themselves.
  6. I am and I thank you. The comment was directed more toward bologna, but I'll address a few of your concerns as well to attempt to find a common ground. I'll start here. The impression I get from this area is that we are discussing topics with fellow peer groups whom have similar medical understanding which are normally discussed outside of the general work place. In the break room I am doing just that, taking a break from being a nurse with opinions to being a person with opinions who happens to be a nurse. Of course I did. I do so with the intention of putting importance on the life. I feel that in my practice, now as a nurse, to not use simple language leads to a disconnect as a Pt to caregiver. As a person calling a invitro baby a fetus is tantamount to comparison to a still birth. This is possible due to the more agrarian society I have been raised in, but an important distinction in my eyes. I'd disagree as a matter of semantics. If one single baby was saved, then your statement is proven false. If I may allude to a later posting. If the knowledge of abortion being banned was made known, then the women would have incentive to commit to knowledge attained by safe sex talks. I'm going to once again point out the semantic distinction and contradiction in your point. The belief of those who want to ban abortion is just that. Saving lives. Control? Quiet the opposite. The control should rest squarely on the family unit to raise and care for the child. I believe the point is to shift control back to the people involved. The same is felt from the pro life movement. Policies that would increase the killing of babies. I agree completely, however I think the total number of abortion should be zero. Access... how far does this access extend. Who provides this access? Is this government given healthcare? Does this also include abortions? Who pays for this care? When do we allow the local government to take control of this care? You say "the next generation" but you mean men. Well you mean P.O.S. boys who need to be beaten and offered euthanasia, but I digress. No one is taught to disrespect women in the US. You point me to a person teaching boys to not respect women and ill judge that. Tc continue the narrative that all men are rapists until taught otherwise is demeaning and lessens the burden of responsibility on society. If you mean to change society in another country, then how do we affect this change, and in what way? Then I would argue you are not so lucky as you are missing out on the majority voter base to the conservative side. The issue is that MY money, in the form of taxes, are being sent to another country and not helping my neighbor. This is forced assistance to another country benefits me in no way. It in now way improves my life or the life of another in my community, where I would have spent that money or donated to my local church/charity. To impress on me that I am a sociopath for not caring in someone dies in another country is absurd. I am being reasonable in my knowledge that I can't save everyone. Even in my professional practice I have seen death. If I can't save one person when I bend all my will and expertise on them, what hope do I have that someone else, thousands of miles away, will maybe benefit from assistance, with no assurance of outcome but a possibility that the money is being used correctly. It's not my job to save the world. I save the person in front of me, my family, and my neighbor in my community. Because I support all life. I will not hand the knife, through readily available and paid for abortion, to end a life. It is the women's choice to seek these dangerous alternatives. I cannot advocate for the easier cessation of life.
  7. It never hurts to put forth a meaningful argument ya know. All these straw man and ad hominem attacks are not making it look like you want civil discourse or are interested in any other viewpoint. Would you care to enlighten me on your viewpoint on this matter? Leaving out the social commentary on the opposing side?

    NRA is at it again

    Yes gun violence is a public health issue. But the violence is a symptom of the culture. The tools, as we are learning from Britain, will evolve with the perpetrators of the crimes. Having not the ability to read the article at this time. I wonder then what their call to action was on the published piece. If anyone has the article i would appreciate it.

    What comes to mind when you hear Donald Trump ?

    This is also my biggest concern. His inane tweeting and Pot to Kettle situations are causing a number of his supporters to throw our hands up and cry, "What a moron!". As for scrupulous, yes I believe he is. He was well known as a successful business man well before his TV appearances. He had to be operating under an agreeable form of ethics and moral standing, even if they are morals and ethics that are not my own. Mostly spiky bars on a roller coaster. Dips and rises. But boy are we on a climb!

    So you would rather these women not come forward with their abuse situations? I'm confused by the narrative your presenting. So you have any suggestions to improve the system, or will it be a steryotypical "Tell men not to rape." response? Or could we act like adults and not cut each other down based on our sex. The condecensing nature in which you automatically reply to posters who have no previous interaction with you furthers the gap in knowledge and support from all sides.

    Why are the victims always blame?

    I would respectfully disagree. If you come to me with the accusation of gang rape I too would be very upset. An accusation like that would follow anyone around for the rest of their life. This hearing will be an asterisk in the annuls of his decisions for the entirety of his sitting. As for the victim reporting, they should come forward as soon as possible. This will allow more accurate reporting and allow the soonest possible recourse for the victims.

    What comes to mind when you hear Donald Trump ?

    Scrupulous businessman with a Black and White personality. To clarify, he either has full love for someone, or hates them unconditionally. I use the extremes of both words because it fits the style of his responses. As long as you support his views, best friends, if you oppose him, mortal enemy. He has a hard time with diplomatic relation withing his own people for this reason. The largest benefit I see from the President is the upturn in the economy. We have hit amazing levels of growth in the 2 years he's been president. I believe that this is due to the confidence that business owners have in the man himself.
  13. I would submit that for most the belief that the babies life is equally imporant to the mothers. A life is a life in the eyes of the detractor. Others would argue that the monetary costs of supporting these services to the world population is offering nothing to the healthcare of the US itself. Most often heard in the form of, "Why should I pay for another countries healthcare?". The scope of expanding the Rule just placed more pressure on the systems to stop abortion practice to keep the funding. If the concern is the loss of that funding to other services, then the one responsible for the services should step in to fill the gap. If they believe that they need the other services more than the abortion services, than they can stop the practice and continue to receive funding.
