“It has nothing to do with ease, but everything to do with the fact that medical schools no longer teach it because insurance companies no longer cover it. Hence it's up to the doctor's discretion to gain the know-how on their own and risk liability because to them everyone is a walking lawsuit. So what's the easiest way out for breech birth? C section.”

“that is not quite correct,
My DIL delivered the first breech baby in 15 years at a hospital and none of the nurses or midwives and only one of the doctors knew how to deliver it because of experience with the second of twins coming out breech.
The reason, they c-section everyone now that is breech. It is scary when the medical profession no longer knows what do with something that has existed as long as human life has!”
“CeCe has THE worst voice ever. Having the attitude and looks of a pop star doesn't cut it. It'll leave you as a one hit wonder like Kesha.”

“Kay, I'm a week late but I have to explain why you are so wrong, Melimo. Kesha has already had several of her songs reach the top 10 (Die Young, Take It Off, Your Love Is My Drug) including 2 that reached number one (Tik Tok, We R Who We R) she was featured in Flo Rida's number one hit Right Round in 2009, collaborated with 3OH!3 on two radio hits (My First Kiss and Blah Blah Blah), she co-wrote Britney Spear's single Til The World Ends and Kelly Clarkson's album Breakaway...she has been in the music industry for quite awhile and I'm sure she will continue to be part of it in the future. And if you don't think she can sing, google Goodbye.
“Thank you for this! With all the resources available to us especially nowadays, there is no reason for the ignorance about this. It's not like picking out clothes to wear, it's proper preparation for the life of a human being and all options should be researched thoroughly even before actually attempting to conceive.”
“This is so horrifying! I followed this case and knew the father did it! WHY was he granted access to his children?!?! I loathe our failed justice system! I'm so saddened by this. The maternal grandparents who adored those children and their daughter...Oh goodness how sad...”

“Makes you wonder, doesn't it. The system truly does not work. We are supposed to have safeguards in place to protect children, but somehow they always seem to fall through the net. Is it because there is just so much of this degradation goling on and not enough people in place to handle it all, or is it because the system is truly flawed and people simply aren't doing their jobs?”
“Do your research, they already HAVE gone against the Constitution. Look up that recent Terrorist bill. ANYONE (that includes US CITIZENS) can be considered a terrorist threat. That opens WAY too many doors for their power to run buck wild. There are no regulations, it is simply a bill for those considered a terrorist, or national threat to be detained indefinitely WITHOUT TRIAL. That is CLEARLY against the Constitution.”

“Your opinion about who has gone against the Constitution is of course your personal perspective and not fact. That being stated will you respond to the questions posed? You have not explained how the US government will turn into a dictatorship? Do you believe the congress and supreme court will give away their powers? Do you believe that all 3 branches of the government will go against the Constitution, give up their powers, ignore the will of the electorate and support a dictatorship? I think the founding fathers did a good job of creating a country in which a dictatorship is most likely impossible. Obviously you do not.”
“you really think someone that is willing to BREAK THE LAW by killing people is going to care about gun laws? most gun crimes are done with ILLEGAL POSSESSION of a gun. You can't disarm law abiding people who use guns to protect their lives and expect criminals to give up their guns. FBI's yearly statistics prove that a crime rates decreasing correlate to rises in LEGAL gun ownership. Do some research.”
“then tell your congressman. we don't wanna have to hide it either. and btw, there are millions and millions of responsible gun owners that have NOT had a single violent encounter. and i'm sure if heaven forbid you were held hostage by an armed criminal, you'd be wanting a someone to shoot him down. especially when the police will get to you 20mins too late as they "negotiate" with the criminal.”

“actually, the last thing i'd want in a hostage situation is a yahoo like this one trying to save me.
yes, most gun owners, like myself, have never had an accident with our weapons, but it does not follow that we all have sufficient training to intervene in any situation.”

“Thanks for telling me how I would react and what I would want. I appreciate that you apply your imagined projection to me.”

“You've been watching too many movies. I am pushing sixty, and I and everybody I know have never, ever even come close to being in a hostage situation. I do know someone who was killed in a firearm accident, though.
I own a few guns, they are interesting works of craftsmanship and do serve a purpose. But I haven't fired one in many, many years, because I know it is far more dangerous to have a gun in one's hand than not to.”
“UGH...stop saying "the gun went off". Guns don't magically go off. HE PULLED THE TRIGGER. He broke the 4 main rules of gun safety and this is the consequence of his actions. 1st rule is: EVERY GUN IS LOADED, EVEN WHEN IT'S NOT.
This has nothing to do with the NRA, it has solely to do with the individual who used horribly poor judgement on gun safety, and destroyed the lives of many as a result.”
anuthazone on Feb 19, 2012 at 12:37:14
“So you're assuming the owner and prospective owner were members of the NRA and knew the "4 main rules"? If they were, then it is the fault of the NRA for not being able to accomplish what should be their basic objective: to instill the "4 main rules" into the brains of gun owners. If they weren't members, then this sad story is yet another reinforcement of what Democrats/liberals (the responsible ones) have been saying: that the irresponsible gun-ownership that republicans are in favor of is responsible for far too many unpreventable gun deaths.”

“Thanks, well said.”

“The NRA wants everyone to carry guns anywhere: churches, picnics, debates, movie houses, playgrounds, hospitals. It is the NRA's fault.”
“Easy. Being Christian doesn't make anyone better than anyone else. You've been given the wrong message by people who claim to be holier than thou. True, they should hold themselves to more accountability because they bear the name of Christ, but God doesn't force people to do anything, they have free will. So if someone who goes to church (but is most likely NOT a Christian) feels like killing someone, they have the choice to do so. God doesn't make the world perfect. He works to better people in only those who seek His direction. If you are looking for the better in OTHER people and not yourself, then your priorities were mixed. Simple as that. But your uneducated comment is oh so welcome. Just makes us want to pray for you. (I know you LOVE hearing that...) Now, from MY perspective, what's BETTER to do than insult a community of people (ie Christians), is to honestly answer a person with questions DESPITE the fact that they insult them. Think about it. Peace.”

“Ok, first of all, as a 21 year old female...a young ADULT growing up in this ever increasing sexualized country, yes I find this to be WAY too much for a sixteen year old girl to be doing.
Now, that aside, don't blame Disney, because they're not the ones that had her do this. Hollywood Records is now her "Miley Management". The only way Disney would have fault would be if she came on stage as Hanna Montana doing all that garbage.
I was shocked from the beginning how she came out with her tiny shorts, high heels, bra bearing shirt with her legs spread wide in a low stance. THAT'S NOT PROVOCATIVE??? You guys need your eyes checked. She's dressed, maybe not as a stripper, but as a girl going to a club. SHE'S NOT EVEN OLD ENOUGH TO GET INTO ONE! And so what if that's not a stripper pole? that's the suggestion behind it being there. Just because its facade is an ice cream cart doesn't mean it's not a dancing pole. It's what you do with the pole that makes it a sexual item, and straddling it between her legs, even for a second, is highly inappropriate for the age-group that looks up to her.”
Feanor on Aug 13, 2009 at 18:58:17
“Well, obviously it's meant to be provocative. It's like no one commenting here even bothered to listen to the words of the song....in which, yes, she goes to a club... "Movin my hips like yea" .... and of course the pole was meant to be suggestive of a stripper pole... duh
