    Well I certainly HOPE so. Geeeeesh. Kind of senseless if people can't tell the difference and make choice. It's the American way. LOL
    Abortion rights dogma can obscure human reason & harden the human heart so much that the same person who feels
    empathy for animal suffering can lack compassion for unborn children who experience lethal violence and excruciating
    pain in abortion.

    Unborn animals are protected in their nesting places, humans are not. To abort something is to end something
    which has begun. To abort life is to end it.

    Ah, the "different look" ain't about making choices but rather preventable dead Americans, and more preventable dead Americans to follow, appears you and Trent Garner have the same callow view of reality

    I'm kind of glad we are not one homogenous monstrosity of an Authoritarian State.
    Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but rather we have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.
    - -- Aristotle

    Believe nothing on the faith of traditions, even though they have been held in honor for many generations and in diverse places. Do not believe a thing because many people speak of it. Do not believe on the faith of the sages of the past. Do not believe what you yourself have imagined, persuading yourself that a God inspires you. Believe nothing on the sole authority of your masters and priests. After examination, believe what you yourself have tested and found to be reasonable, and conform your conduct thereto.

    right? too bad the republicans and democrats want to make it that way...........fuckers
    In a combat situation it is about 16 times better to do something useful and violent right away than to wait and figure out something even more useful and violent later.

    Right, makes a lot of people glad knowing they stand a better chance of dying from an avoidable virus as long as they don't have to take preventable measures that are saving other Americans

    Democrats aren't doing anything other than taking logical preventable measures to avoid dying from a virus, and as shown above, the Republicans are seemingly doing the opposite for idiotic reasons

    It also gives sanctimonious gasbags something to use to demand more government authoritarian control over every aspect of every life. "If it would just save one life it would be enough" and all the other platitudes aside.... I'd prefer to live with danger than life with Fascists protecting me (and others) from every danger.

    Ah, no one has figured out yet how to prevent any virus, even Fauci isn't that good, the only preventive measure is to limit the virus from spreading, which vaccines do, you MAGA people never really that good at understanding Science

    I believe that we should defend their individual rights to the death...as long as its their deaths. They need to stay the F away from others.

    A Modest Proposal For Separating Blue States From Red

    Dear Red-State Trump Voter,
    Let’s face it, guys: We’re done.


    It is a tragedy that so much of the work that so many men and women toiled at for so long to make this a better country, and a better world, has been thrown away, leaving us all in such needless peril.

    This is why our separation in all but name is necessary.

    I wish some people weren’t so stupid about vaccines and masks.
