A liberal man is a man that used his heart to totally forget that he had a brain.

So true, because if he acted in his own best interest he would soon learn that he could screw over millions of people for his own personal gain.

Stupid liberals.

Half true. I'm glad you acknowldge that it is with heart and not brain. The part you miss is that without the brain you don't think 3 steps ahead and usually fail in your goal and make everything worse.

I agree that liberals tend to think with their hearts, but I also understand that the heart does not have the ability to think for itself thus "thinking with your heart" is basically saying you are using your brain, but just a different part of it.

As people that tend to be more altruistic also tend to be better suited to take other peoples perspectives into account and not just see things from a singular perspective.

Thus proving that they are actually better equipped to make decisions that help others and not just themselves.

Also when you look at the more altruistic countries you also see that they have better economizes heath care and overall quality of life for its citizens.

Uh....yeah....liberals "think with their hearts".........
FIFTY MILLION DEAD BABIES......that's some real DEEP thinking!

It sure is, as it takes a bit more than average brain power to understand that it is done for a greater good, and that an unwanted pregnancy is just that an unwanted pregnancy, and the less of those you have the better off society is.

These are facts that some are not capable of seeing, as they can not think deep enough and beyond a primal instinct to save offspring, though I would suggest if they do feel that urge, to run down to social services and sign up as a foster parent as then they can show the world that they really do care about babies and not just about trying to be all righteous and proper without actually backing it up.

So you are unstable :)

The War on Women is a manufactured meme targeted at unmarried women.


http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/OTUS/put-ring-obama-wins-women-married-types/story?id=16057761#.UHzfzMW9Z8E



That data seems to favor Romney, but Democrats see hope in growing numbers of unmarried women (almost 2 million more between 2010 and 2012), a group that tends to care more about social issues like birth control and abortion than married women do — conveniently, topics that have been in the news lately courtesy of the Republican primary.

"You don't have to win married women to win the election if unmarried women turn out in good numbers," Lake said.


Wow, it's great how it's just so easy to manipulate people like puppets isn't it? What happened to treating people like intelligent, involved, and equal human beings? I guess being left only means equality for those that spin the numbers.

I thought you were extolling the virtues of having a unibrow?

No, but it's okay.. no bad things happened before people acquired rights. Let's pretend before hand, women didn't have abortions with coat hangers.

So you are basically saying that single women are stupid and are not smart enough to understand and this whole attack on women's right is just made up, so they should get back in the kitchen and start making sandwiches.

Because clearly if they where as smart as you, they would see that unnecessary procedures like the ones that require women to have a trans-vaginal procedure and how some republicans are attempting to redefine rape to make it even harder to get an abortion, have nothing really to do with their rights at all, and is just a ruse by the democrats to get their vote.

You really need to go more public with this earth shattering information.

Just as you want to impose your views on those women who are pro life...


Really? I do believe that no one forces any woman to have an abortion...while the uber-reich wishes to make the decision for a woman.


what your side always seems to conveniently forget is that were it not for a Choice made by a woman she would not find herself in need of an abortion..


Well, there ya go...the uber reich thinks that a woman who becomes pregnant is the only responsible party to the act.

I wonder how many of those caring pro-lifers posting here have become foster paents...adopted an unwanted child...supported heathcare for children and school lunches...helped provide prenatal care for unwed mothers???

Please don't all respond at once...because I know the answer already...not one of you!

also living brown people of any age are on their own, or are fair game, if they are unfortunate enough to live in an area with lots of oil, or seem to get in the way of the insatiable US demand for oil..send the military killing machine out to get rid of them, sweep them out of the way..need millions of barrels of oil per year to support the military machine, alone

abortion is bad, but bombs, missiles, artillery, tanks, gun cluster bombs, mines, and depleted uranium, etc. the most efficient killing methods of mass destruction, and killing several hundred thousand in order to secure oil interests is OK.

What is your point of posting that?

Either you are stating that I was unable to detect your sarcasm, and that I am possible suffering from dementia thus making the case that what you stated was not fact, but just a sarcastic comment that was missed.

Or, you just self diagnosed yourself.

Public Religion Research Institute Survey

Majority of Catholics Think Employers Should Be Required to Provide Health Care Plans that Cover Birth Control at No Cost - Majority Support Requirement that Employer Health Care Plans Include Contraception Coverage

A majority (55%) of Americans agree that “employers should be required to provide their employees with health care plans that cover contraception and birth control at no cost.” Four-in-ten (40%) disagree with this requirement.

There are major religious, generational and political divisions:

Roughly 6-in-10 Catholics (58%) believe that employers should be required to provide their employees with health care plans that cover contraception.
Among Catholic voters, support for this requirement is slightly lower at 52%.
Only half (50%) of white Catholics support this requirement, compared to 47% who oppose it.

Among other religious Americans, 61% of religiously unaffiliated Americans believe that employers should be required to provide their employees with health care plans that cover contraception, compared to only half (50%) of white mainline Protestants and less than 4-in-10 (38%) white evangelical Protestants.

Nearly three-quarters (73%) of Democrats, a slim majority (51%) of political Independents and less than 4-in-10 (36%) of Republicans agree that employer health care coverage should include contraception at no cost.

Holy cow! You are totally backwards, friend. The name calling is predominantly Liberal. People like Bill Maher spout misogynist insults of the most vulgar variety! Yet, President is still willing to accept $ 1 million from said "entertainer". You want to know where the "War on Women" is most prolific? Look at past influential leaders in politics who were unfaithful to their wives, caught red handed, lied about it and still accepted by the public as heroes. John Edwards, who cheated on his wife as she died of terminal cancer. Bill Clinton, cheated on Hillary with an intern, which distracted us of much of his political incompetence throughout the '90s. Ted Kennedy, left his mistress to die in his car after he drove off a bridge. Not to mention Jack Kennedy, who cheated on Jackie with several women including Marilyn Monroe. Still today, our conservative members stay loyal to their wives for instance: G W Bush, Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, and best of all Ronald Reagan.

Well I haven't been here to stir the pot in while...so let's see what we got! lol

@#585 "I am trying to get the thread back on topic"

Here let me see if I can help you out! Romney/ryan would ban ALL abortions....they "SAY" except in cases of rape, incest or when it threatens a woman's life, but that belies what both have said and done. Ryan for his part, has voted for an anti-abortion bills and sponsored a couple with that champion of womens rights...todd akin. Romney said he would be thrilled to sign the Blount Amendment. Or for that matter any anti abortion legislation.

Obama has supported women's rights...

It should be noted as well during all the discussions, the part that cracks me up, is that viagra is covered under most plans, but women's contraception isn't...can you say double standard? Further on here, where there are more men on the hunt for a one night stand that any other place in the world...where most men upon hearing the dreaded words "I'm pregnant"...seem to have no problem lobbying the woman to get an abortion! Hahahahaha!

@#595 "The name calling is predominantly liberal"

WOW! Do you live in a cave? How bout Snunu calling the president lazy or shiftless? Or other things he said? Or Trump calling the president a foreigner? Or the woman who asked McCain at one of his rallies about Obama being a muslim? Or how about right here on this page #583, "Liberals "think with their hearts" FIFTY MILLION DEAD BABIES"?

Or is it that it's OK to call liberals names...just not the conservatives? Hahahahahaha!

As for the "FIFTY MILLION DEAD BABIES"...you don't think in that number a whold shitload were republicans/conservatives? No...never...a good christian conservative would never have an abortion...right? hahahaa!

@#583 "people like puppets"....what is it with this new fascination of the word puppets? Is this something new that came down from on high at the republican lie machine? Insult people who might vote democrat, tell them that they are being led astray by puppets? Hahahahaha!!!

Oh Irish you kidder...Newt, Thomas, Cain....you forgot to mention the next generation how bout Palin's daughter? Or that Governor from SC who got kicked to the curb by his wife, with the south american mistress, using state funds and plane to fly and meet her? Sorry pal...your post is short about 236 yada's! Hahahahaha1

"Obama has supported women's rights..." They have the right to get thrown under the bus just like a man. (or is that only for Hillary?)
Obama has also opposed same-sex marriage, but then supported it.
Obama promised to get amnesty for illegals, then forgot to, then pushed the Dream Act.
Obama supports transparency in Government, just don't ask him what his own people are up to.
Obama supports cutting our deficit in half, but instead doubled it.
Obama supports jobs bills that cost trillions, yet don't produce jobs.
Obama supports wind and solar power, go Solyndra !!

‘Any law which dehumanises and excludes an entire class of people is an assault on the principle of the universal human rights,’ Stephen Woodworth said at a press conference a week before motion 312 was voted on. He added that he was pessimistic about the motion passing, but that it may lead to Canadians having second thoughts about abortion. Prime minister Stephen Harper stated that he would vote against it; he did not wish to open up the abortion debate. In late September, the motion failed to pass. Although the motion never proposed any legislation, concerns have been raised that this might be the first step towards restricting the right to abortion.


You mean people in other parts of the world think that its a human rights issue also?

Ahh, that must be why Iran is leading the UN commission for women. :) You go freedom fighters.

Now what does Romney support or not? Whatever you say...I'm sure I can find a quote from him on the other side of the issue at one point or other....

I get it, you like Romney.....you hate Obama...me I hate bullshit, and that's all that romney is selling.

Hell he even sold his own mother down the drain to try and get elected....

No, in other parts of the world there are crazy people who can not see the forest for the trees.

Because if you had read further on from the link you posted you would have seen this:


...Wherever one stands on this issue, there are political leaders who believe that at one point in a pregnancy, a foetus should not only be given human rights, but that these rights should also take precedence over the rights of a woman to choose freely. According to the world health organisation, legal restrictions do not stop abortions. A report published in the medical journal The Lancet shows that regions where abortion is illegal have higher abortion rates than western Europe, where abortion is legal.

Regions where abortion is illegal have higher abortion rates than western Europe, where abortion is legal

Access to legal abortion means access to safe abortion procedures, whereas illegal abortions carry a high risk for the health and safety of the woman. Worldwide, close to 50, 000 women die due to complications resulting from unsafe abortions every year. This constitutes 13% of all maternal deaths in the world...

So by being for banning abortions, you are actually creating more abortions.
