    Is having children a "right"?

    i agree, that it should be a privilege. as it stands now, it is a right. the only aspect of that argument that i agree with, is that women should be able to make decisions about their own bodies. yet, the conundrum for me is there are too many unqualified women/parents. they just totally suck in their role and responsibilities. and children suffer as a result. i would seriously like to see parenting classes, tests, and even some type of certification/licensure before one can become a parent. again to me, it is THAT much of a privilege... and you should have to work hard in attaining this goal. as a result of this current "right", we see its adverse and ubiquitous effects in the rampant abuses of children. it just shouldn't be that easy in becoming a parent. i feel strongly about that. leslie
  2. to me, it sounds like he expanded it and not "changed" it. :) much more all-embracing now. leslie

    Obama must console student who couldn't answer what 2-1=.

    the undertone of contempt from the right (re "obamaphones") goes far beyond "people who disagree with his policies", imo. far beyond. leslie

    and people wonder why the right gets such a bad rap. :no: you seriously have my pity, 22gawhitacre. leslie

    Scandal politics sweep Capitol Hill

    well i suppose it depends on what you consider "insulting". surely what you consider insulting, i probably would not and vice versa. i imagine (knowing what you've posted in the past) the articles posted on your wall, were from leftists, since you would agree with those from your own party. i agree people should be able to post what they want on their own walls... without having visitors 'argue' or oppose what's being posted. i remember that remark, and to me, just demonstrated another version of ugly...but not surprising. still aky, re this thread, i do wish folks would look in their own backyards before throwing stones. i'm not talking about viva, because she personally has never been 'ugly'. but if someone wants to play a certain way (and has supporters to show for it), then don't play victim when the ball is returned to their court. fair is fair in love and war. leslie

    sticks and stones? :) viva's post has absolutely nothing to do with violating tos. otherwise, she could have (and maybe she did, who knows) reported it. her point it seems, is that she is wondering if some (on this bb) feel the same way as the author of the article. and if so, what difference is there in being supportive of the insulting articles on fb, yet protesting about it on this forum? that IS hypocritical and especially noting that both sides have been culpable (and yes, i clearly remember these belittling posts/threads), how can one take offense? seriously, let's be real about this. otherwise, the whole thing lacks credibility. leslie

    i appreciate your feelings, viva. all i am saying is if you see the big picture, many of your friends from the left have been equally brutalized by the same allegations from right wing media. i'm just asking you to put it in perspective...and be honest with yourselves. that is all. leslie eta: i've been complaining about the ugliness of politics for yrs...yet i find it interesting that it seems to be ugly, only when perceptions are targeted at one side. once we can all agree that politics is divisive, antagonistic, and overall malevolent, then i can envision less victimization and more responsibility to the comments, links, and articles we submit for consideration.

    Teen charged for having sex with same sex teen

    i'm sure there need to be revisions as to the classification of sex offenders. but the thought of a "peeping tom" makes me sick to my stomach, and i do not consider that a benign incident in any way, shape, or form. as to the guy who castrated his dtr's rapist....nah, i don't consider him a sex offender but he certainly needed to be charged with something more relevant. and i am from the camp that believes there is a notable difference betw a 14yo and 18yo. it's not repulsive to me (as it would be betw a 40yo and 10yo), but it does raise an eyebrow. and i do have to wonder if folks would feel the same if it was an 18yo boy and 14yo girl? i do wonder. leslie

    respectfully, it seems a tad hypocritical to feel attacked, when these types of clearly biased articles have been the mainstream of this forum's politics, starting sev'l yrs ago. seriously, either you are forgetting the reciprocal depictions of and from both political persuasions... or you are being disingenuous. i choose to believe the former. furthermore, what is the difference in posting such stories here, vs these same zingers on fb? i have seen these same type of articles on fb, with equally as unflattering comments from some here. and finally, the cartoon forum we used to have... was filled with ugly innuendo. yet sev'l here seemed to enjoy and participate in that type of exchange as well. what's the difference? if you choose to feel persecuted, then have at it. otherwise, these types of articles are not instigated solely from the left or right. it works both ways...always has, always will. this **** gets old....yes, really. leslie

    House to approve Food Stamp Cuts

    (splitting of paragraph and bolding by me.) i just love this type of 'news'...not that it's truly "news" since our economic recovery has been improving exponentially. another link from forbes, exhibits reason for even more optimism regarding the aca.

    you're probably right...i'm just not seeing it. rather, i consistently see/read about those lazy bastards on welfare, who are soaking us dry... and never/seldom read about those (on public assistance) who are genuinely hurting and struggling to stay afloat. i consistently read about those who are rabid at the perceived thought of losing their guns... and never/seldom hear the frustration and despair of those who have lost their lives through gun-related assaults. i consistently read that our leftist potus is madly and irresponsibly spending us into a hole, yet never heard a "boo" as the billions of dollars a day that wars cost us... or, never heard a "boo" to the lives wasted and lost because of these stinkin' wars. i won't even get into the veterans benefits that are waning away to extent that homelessness and hopelessness (and other mental disorders) are now a way of life for too, too many. yes, i can go on, but i won't. so perhaps we do want the same things - although i doubt it. our priorities are clearly different. ftr, i am not speaking on behalf of anyone but myself... and am not going to pretend that we all want the same thing. i am not seeing it. i suspect many of the "moral majority" hear the same as well. all this said, i do feel that on a micro level, i.e., within the parameters of our immediate geograpic domains, many have compassion for those who are in need. who knows...perhaps this collective compassion will manifest in a concern that reaches all who need it. i'll take that, too. leslie

    House to approve Food Stamp Cuts

    i would never speak on behalf of your personal ideals. i was speaking on behalf of conservative ideals, since "conservatives" was the subject of the sentence. i have no idea why you choose to be insulted; it's not good or bad, we are just different... as you can see by the following link. Conservative vs. Liberal Beliefs | Student News Daily if you can objectively read the differences, it is clear where ea side stands. again, not good, not bad - different. liberals overall, want socioeconomic equalities and opportunities for all. conservatives don't exactly agree with that. it is what it is. :) leslie

    tnt, it's unfortunate you've distorted what i wrote, reposted above. i will not expend any more energy on this utter nonsense. ha... you slay me. good day. leslie eta: my 2nd quote is from post #9, if you care to read it in its full context.
