A serial killer would be more than once.

So then a woman receiving an abortion can't be Jeffrey Dahmer.  I accept your retraction.

Yes, everyone gets one murder. After that, it's not okay anymore. I'm still undecided on mine.

This is a shocking turn around by you.  I am glad you were open to having your mind changed.

I've literally had an abortion and I never once regretted it and I rarely think about it. I did not suffer emotionally.

By Rushy’s “rationale” you are literally a serial killer.

Tom thinks “Leave It to Beaver” was reality TV.

Sometimes it seems like Biden is speaking a foreign language.



Covfefe! I remember when Trump mumbled and spoke nonsensically you went out of your way to defend it. You don’t care about this issue. Why do you pretend to care?

ITT Tom ascribes will and intent to a clump of cells. I suppose if that is what you believe, then being pro-life is consistent, but it does require you to ascribe will and intent to a clump of cells.

Just here to say that “potential human” is not a very useful term. Every ova and every sperm is a potential human. It’s been mentioned before, but there needs to be a good conversation that has nothing to do with politicians about how to classify this.

Actually there is an even older law that supercedes those "established" "rights". The Constitution specifically says that anything not defined in it is left to the states. The Roe vs. Wayde guarantee to abortion was always illegal. The states control health laws, not the federal government.

The Supreme Court decision does what every decision that interprets the constitution does: clarifies what laws are constitutional and which aren’t. That isn’t an infringement anymore than ruling that free speech extends to television.

I bet that price is for the bare minimum of service as well. In and out of the hospital in 24-48 hrs, no private room, etc…

I raise you an Obama speech.

Stuff like this kind of glosses over the issue as it's seen by conservatives and might point to why they refuse to see it this way. Obama talks about intensely personal decisions, but to conservatives against it it's nothing less than murder, which no one would argue is something that shouldn't be against the law.

I'm not justifying it, I just think that a real dialogue about this issue needs to weigh both perspectives, otherwise it's just preaching to the respective choir.

Since when do you care about both perspectives? lol

Dave is right, Lia was second at Penn State, then plummeted the season she began hormone therapy. She set some school records the following season, competing as a woman, and won one distance at nationals. In other distances she was well off of winning never mind setting any record. The outrage around her competing is divorced from the reality of what she accomplished. Roundy is just acting like Ted Cruz and it’s sad to see.

The President of El Salvador says that the Biden Administration is pro-crime.



Improving social conditions is a long lasting way to fight crime. Turns out disenfranchisement and poverty lead to systemic criminality. Don’t mistake political messages for statements of fact.

Pretty cringe to think one black person's experience is the same as another merely because they share a skin tone. That's the sort of racist rhetoric I've come to expect from you, though.

Strawman. Interesting tactic.

Quote
You brought up an irrelevant topic. If you want to dig for my opinions on them, there's a search bar at the top of the page. You can't bring something up then demand I source it for you. Well, you can, but you shouldn't.

I did. You complained about Dems, never about how those nominees were solely to prop up GOP wedge issues. I see you are a dishonest actor posing as someone with ethics.

Quote
It's not a surprise that a racist like yourself devolves to generalizing an entire spectrum of political beliefs as well.

Alright. You and every other right winger here panic at everything. Happy

Quote

Biden specifying it must be a black woman means her other qualities are merely coincidence.

What a terrible analysis. No wonder your take on this is so vapid.

Quote
As Saddam explained earlier, the court isn't one of merit, so I suppose her qualifications shouldn't matter to anyone anyway.

Saddam’s generalization is not accurate, but go ahead and continue agreeing with your critics then tell them they are wrong.

I only support white men on the Supreme Court, as I, like you, judge nominees based on physical characteristics. If it's not a white man, I don't support their nomination. In the future I'll only vote for candidates that say "I will nominate a white man to the Supreme Court!" because apparently it's okay to promise that and then do it.

Pretty cringe thinking the black experience in the US is the same as the white one.

Also, I did discuss Kavanaugh extensively here, but you apparently weren't here to read that. Where were you when that happened? I guess you didn't care because you don't even remember it!

Citation needed.  What about Barrett?

And on towards an even more racist future. You're not observing racism going away or being moved past. You're watching it being continued.

The right can't help but panic about everything.

As long as you admit she didn't earn the position on merit (and no one should or does, apparently), whatever else you say is needless fluff.

Perhaps she earned the nomination through a combination of resume and politics (find me a justice who hasn't), but she earned the position through a vote in the Senate.  The GOP apparently believed she was more deserving than Barrett or Kavanagh too.

I'm not sure where you got "you cannot discuss sexual orientation with children" as predominantly anti-LGBT" from. The examples I gave above are equally het oriented as well. They are examples of teachers having a "partner" or not. Regardless of whether that partner is same-sex or not.

Then I'm misunderstanding what problem you have with the law. Do you think K-3 elementary schoolers should be introduced to sexual orientation topics, despite not having hit puberty and those topics obviously making zero sense to them?

You should have a look at what age appropriate education actually constitutes on this topic because it mostly centres around consent when physically interacting with others and being open minded about other people. I’ve said it a few times but this is a huge manufactured moral panic that many on the American right are all to ready to embrace.
