Pro-life advocates never see that by removing choice from the process, you are forcing the State to make the decision for you. You must have a baby because the government removed your opinion.
These pro-life conservatives would be the same people who complain about the ‘nanny state’ and government regulations being too burdensome. They claim to support liberty, but not really. The exact opposite. They want to be in your bedroom and doctor’s office.
I could not think of a more personal decision than to have a child or deciding not to have a child through birth control options.
You take away all options, you are replacing them with government control via politicians. Old, male, white public servants, not doctors.

So let’s review.
Stephen Colbert plays a character on the “Colbert Report” described by Colbert himself as a ”well-intentioned, poorly informed high-status idiot”.
Said ”well-intentioned, poorly informed high-status idiot” uses part of his show to “Defend” (i.e. Make fun of.) Washington Redskin’s owner Dan Synder’s…
Senate Votes Against The Military Justice Improvement Act
Yellow indicates a seat up for 2014 elections. Pink indicates they are retiring.
If you see your senator on here, don’t forget to remind them that you won’t forget that they voted against ensuring justice for sexual assault victims in the military.
WASHINGTON — New York Democrats lashed out at House Speaker John Boehner Thursday after he accused New York and four other states of “cheating” and “fraud” for sidestepping billions of dollars in federal food stamp cuts.
“Whoever thinks feeding the hungry and the poor is cheating and fraud must have no heart,” said Rep. Charles Rangel (D-Harlem).
At issue are efforts…
Okay, here’s the skinny.
If you’ve clicked on the WePay tip jar link, you have seen the following message.
WePay Donations have been discontinued. If you were trying to make a payment, please contact the person you’re trying to pay directly. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
Which means the only working Tip Jar I have left is Dwolla. And I would like an option that takes…
Marvel has them in spades!
Hell, I bet they keep them in a warehouse just outside of Pasadena. And on special occasions, slap them on a flatbed truck and drive them to the DC offices in Los Angeles. Just so they can put them on a winch and teabag their lobby, cackling like maniacs the whole time.
Now I’m not bringing up the idea of a multinational media company having a house sized set of…
I’ve had it!
I’ve been wrestling with this writer’s block for the last couple of months and it’s still been sticking to me like a bad summer cold. And all that’s come from me trying to wait it out is a case of self loathing that would make Dan Harmon grab me by the shoulders and yell, “SNAP OUT OF IT!”.
So the new plan is this. In lieu of not writing, I’m going to try writing.
One post a day for…
Baby Boomers entered the workforce during one of the greatest economic miracles in modern history: U.S. real GDP per capita decreased only two years between 1950 and 1970, and the resulting bounty was distributed rather equitably. We, meanwhile, have borne the brunt of the largest economic disaster since the Great Depression and watched middle-class real wages stagnate throughout our lives.
These class differences have predictably resulted in conflict. The older set has taken to newspapers, radio and print books to denounce their underemployed descendants as narcissistic, lazy and clueless: a “Generation Me” uninterested in hard work. We have responded from our own turf, in our own language, with a new Internet meme. Here are seven popular examples of the striking ways that our parents, or grandparents for some, just don’t get what we go through.

Nobody heard him, the dead man,
But still he lay moaning:
I was much further out than you thought
And not waving but drowning.
Poor chap, he always loved larking
And now he’s dead
It must have been too cold for him his heart gave way,
Oh, no no no, it was too cold always
(Still the dead one lay moaning)
I was much too far out all my life
And not waving but drowning.
“Not Waving but…
