    Yes, there have been communities where property was shared. It was voluntary to live there. It did not steal wealth. It was a form of charity, for as long as that community lasted. Communism is compulsion. It is not charity.

    First, this is bigotry. The GOP is made up of many different people, all with different backgrounds, beliefs, and value systems. Like anyone group, they generally want to protect children. That's why they become parents, give their kids an education, and try to teach them enough wisdom and skillsets to be productive in society when they become adults.

    They aren't. What was cut was the amount of increase in the budget, not the budget itself. It should eliminated. The federal government has no authorization to implement such a program. Such programs should be left to the States to implement. They are the ones with that authority, if it is in their constitutions. Another method is simply the school district itself funding such programs through local elections.

    Again. It should be ELIMINATED. It is unconstitutional. This is a family issue. At most a State issue, if anything.

    They are. Some schools are no longer 'gun free zones', the cause of many school shootings. Teachers and staff can conceal carry and not even tell their boss. This depends on the States again, not the federal government, which has no authority in this area. Some schools are also finally installing steel doors instead of cheap hollow core doors on classrooms. Yes...they stop bullets from pistols and even many rifles. Drop slats cued from the office can isolate a shooter, trapping them. No school shooting has gone longer then ten minutes before the shooter was captured, killed, or he shot himself. First aid training has expanded too. The application of simple to apply chest seals can save a life, for example.

    Seeing how I'm the only one using sources the fact is no - not all zygotes will grow into fetuses. 1 in 4 pregnancies end in miscarriage.

    Have you done any research on the reasons women get abortions? Or do you think all abortions are just for fun?
    No abortions are just for fun. You are killing a human life. Yes, there is sometimes a reason to take a human life to save others. It is never pleasant to do so.

    ^^ Straw man fallacy.
    There is nothing about religion which is compulsory, and I never suggested there was.

    If you chose to live a Christian life, if you choose to live the vision Jesus provided us, if you chose to put into practice the Christian doctrines from Luke and Acts, then you need to eschew wealth and possessions, you need to share money and property collectively with the poor, and with the community.

    If you do not do these things, then you are not an authentic Christian. At least, according to Luke/Acts.
    If you do choose to be an authentic Christian, and live out this vision, then you are much closer to being a Communist than to being a wealthy, landed capitalist.

    By why not? There was a legitimate life in her care, and it failed to live. That's an important death, right? That was a person?

    then talk about a right to terminate, not a right to produce.....
    That's what abortion is right? The choice to terminate.

    you don't need an abortion to remove a dead baby.......does that confuse you?......
    Didn't you read the story? The confused ones are the Government that restricts abortions. Don't you care about life no more when it's fatally deformed? It's still alive. It's life.

    How strange of me to bring you to this point. What do you think the term "late-term" and "partial birth" abortion refer to? When it's that far along it's for defect reasons, not just a change of heart.

    Rape is not the norm. Consensual relationships are the norm.
    Sure I'm not harshing on consent and all that jazz. But if I told you 1 in 5 people liked cherry soda - would it not be "normal" to like cherry soda?

    Well this is my first interaction with you. Hello Mr. Toucan. That's a nice slogan of diversity you got there. Do they want to protect children when they vote for an accused sex pest like Roy Moore or Donald Trump?

    They aren't. What was cut was the amount of increase in the budget, not the budget itself. It should eliminated. The federal government has no authorization to implement such a program. Such programs should be left to the States to implement. They are the ones with that authority, if it is in their constitutions. Another method is simply the school district itself funding such programs through local elections.
    A cut is still a cut when the budget will probably keep growing. And all this stuff about Constitutionality of federal programs vs states rights is fascinating but a far deviation from the topic.

    ABC and other news sources are not the Universal or Holy Truth. There is a reason Trump calls them 'fake news'. They sell fear. It's what sells papers.
    I've tried avoiding the big ones like cnn and msnbc the MSM isn't pro Bernie either - but at some point you have to ask - what sources are you guys using then? And more importantly what makes your holy sources better than mine?

    No abortions are just for fun. You are killing a human life. Yes, there is sometimes a reason to take a human life to save others. It is never pleasant to do so.
    It is never pleasant, but necessary. If we lived in a different society designed to care for the child, or where sex education was the norm instead of abstinence (depending on state of course) then maybe abortion would be less necessary. But we're a ways to go on that front.

    So even though the information came from the link you still think it's a lie? Fascinating. This is why bringing sources is important, so people can examine it. You try it now.

    the "cut" (which actually wasn't a cut) was actually only an impact on the 4% of recipients who didn't actually meet the financial qualifications which had previously been in place........
    A cut is still a cut to future funding is still a cut when the budget keeps growing.

    then you admit you fucked up by saying reproduction instead of termination.......that was the purpose in bringing it up....

    Didn't you read the story?
    yes, and you didn't.......you said the child was dead and she couldn't get a doctor to remove it, yet the story clearly states the child died AFTER birth.......another misrepresentation on your part....



    How strange of me to bring you to this point. What do you think the term "late-term" and "partial birth" abortion refer to? When it's that far along it's for defect reasons, not just a change of heart.
    and tell me......now that you've found a justification for killing unborn children, shall we restrict abortions to only those cases where the child is clinically dead in the womb?......what percentage do you think that will cover......a hundredth of a percent?......two hundredths?......

    as I recall, Planned Parenthood statistics have abortions in rape situations to be something less than 1%.......if we spot you abortions for rape, abortions to save the life of the mother and abortions of brain dead babies, will you agree to bar the other 97.8%?......
