“Turn yourself in when you watch your brother get shot, just read all these comments and listen to the statements of ppl being interviewed...they don't want this person arrested or questioned...they just want him dead. If it were you do you think you would get a fair shot and want to just turn yourself in?”
“Or he started college at 18 and is in his second year, ie: Sophomore. Remember Yale, Harvard, and most other colleges are Medical Schools, Law Schools, etc...just because we understand that you have to at least finish the 4 years of regular college before you start your actual Med School, doesn't mean that someone who doesn't live in this country and never has would understand it. The father most likely understood that his son was in school to become a Doctor, and therefore says he is in medical school. A difference in language means everything. I would suggest that before you start claiming this man is lying that you take a moment to try and understand how people from foreign countries often either aren't translated properly or when speaking in English aren't speaking properly. Seriously folks, try to get your head out of your rear end long enough to use said head for something other than a hat holder.”
“Trisha by your logic no one should be homosexual because its resulted in tragic events for people, or religious, or successful, a teenager or anything. ATC? One of the most stressful jobs with the highest rate of suicide, should we just let all planes fly with no controllers? Everything has a potential for bad choices, excel in education, run a risk of being bullied and suicide, be a jock, run a risk of a poor life and suicide, etc. Buck up, everyone makes their own decisions of how to handle tragedy. I guess no woman should ever date, marry or be with a guy because of all the cases of domestic violence right? That would put an end to the whole species fairly soon. Think outside of fear.”
“I also agree, dull people who can't think for themselves shouldn't throw anything around, so Natal, I assume that will be the last of you throwing anything around, as so far you haven't thrown out a single original comment, it's been all big business and education status makes the person, and to hell with large population of women and now dads. Nothing original there, pompous jerks have been doing that centuries. Be original, rea”
“Well natal, since you brought this about her and not her, your continuing to bring it about her refuses others to allow a start over. Furthermore as the op of the comment didn't make it about the story, the only way to do so would be for you to bow out at this point and start in on another comment or one of your own about the story, instead of continuing on your course of hatefully attacking not only a stay at a home, but all moms and/or dads who are stay at home. So I guess not only did YOU take this off this incredible kid and focus it on Anjyl, but at the same time put the insults on every stay at home mom and dad. Way to insult both sexes at the same time.”
“the comment that she "interjected" into wasn't about the story at all, but about how a nerd couldn't be into sports. which is categorically untrue. Her interjections were simply her life experiences that back that up for her, now if you would rather have "documented" examples (those of famous or celebrities) just say so and I'll be happy to provide those.
However your conclusions are still not supported by anything that she said. It would be similar to me jumping to the conclusion that you wear a special helmet at all times to protect yourself based on the entirely self interjected lack of common sense that you posted. It's both baseless and insulting.
Of course it's not about her, she was standing up for a kid and an entire classification of people who were insulted. She made it about them, you made it about her.”
“Your insulting it is a great insult and one that in my opinion is a worse action than any hate crime you can imagine. Stay at home parents are responsible for not only raising thier children, but shaping the future of those who will run this country and make the decisions that affect the lives of millions.
Last point, think of this...when you are old and gray and no longer able to take care of yourself, your children are the ones who will be making decisions for you. They will be caring for you and taking care of you as you did for them as children. Would you rather they remember and have as an example of how that should be done one where they are not your top priority and life, or one where they knew without a question their health and well-being was the very center and essence of your life. How well will you be taken care of?”
“While my wife is free to leave me at anytime, I'm a slave to her because of my love for her, which is nothing but strengthened everytime I think of the sacrafices she has made in her life to dedicate herself entirely to our family.
You say that she will have no self, worth, belonging, or who she is? I say her self, worth, belonging, who she is, love, desires, and life will far outlive her because of her love and dedication to our family.
I work to support and take care of my family, if work comes between me and my ability to do that, I leave my work and find another. My wife's work is her family, my career will end when I retire, her career is one that will end for her only upon her death. There is no greater choice in life that one can make. I'm an IT Administrator for a Governmental Office supporting the public of my area. A very rewarding and respectable career, that many have expressed their gratitude and envy of, yet I tell them all that the one person I am most enviest of and desire to have thier choice in career is my wife and all those (both men and women) who have chosen her path.”
“You should make your family your entire life, perhaps if more partners in life did make their families their entire life we wouldn't be in nearly the amount of problems we are in. Let me give you a real life example of how it can work.
I haven't lived under my parents roof for a decade plus, they live half way across the country but we are closer now than we have ever been, simply because they made us more of a priority. They see and talk to thier grandchildren every night and give them love and sweet dreams (Isn't video chat a wonderful thing). We don't live together or support each other financially but we support each other in our accomplishments and failures. My stay at home wife has dedicated her life to me and my children much the same as Anjyl has done for her kids and husband. As a result, our children love and adore her and while they tell me I am welcome to live them when they are adults, their mother WILL live with them. Additionally as my wife has dedicated her life to me, I have dedicated mine to her. That is not a single woman alive or dead that could ever turn my attention from my wife. I support her in every thing she does and however she needs.”
“what part doesn't add up? just because she chose to stay busy as a child/teen and not go party. Hell I had 4.0 worked 2 jobs, was on speech team, drama club, did the plays, video the sports games, etc. I didn't want to be home, but didn't want to be one of those sitting around doing nothing either.”
“sounds to me more like you simply haven't gotten laid...having a family is a dedication of time, money, energy, your life and intelligence. Perhaps if more people and I mean both mom and dad, took as active a role in raising their child as she does, this country wouldn't be in half bad as shape with our kids as we are now.”

“You can't make your family your "whole life". When the kids leave or the husband leaves, who are you? And what do you do? You have to have your own identity because this does happen. I have seen it all to often, the woman is lost has no sense of self or where she then belongs, and worse, feels, "what is she good for"? Not a good idea. Your time, love and an education, absolutely. Your "life" NO.”
“What do those have to do with anything? So someone went to school, got a decent job, and did something that realistically anyone can do. Let's see...Nixon went to law school and completed it, not a real great one to support that claim. How many CEO's or chairmen of banks are in trouble right now??? Again in this age, prob not something I'ld be bragging about, and once again with the marathon, ever watch Biggest Loser? How about any of the news stories where anyone and everyone are completing marathons. Never did say you won it did you? National ranking as a chess player? Who cares, you can play games, I have an international ranking on an online game, no one cares anymore.”
“Happy to do it for you, Anjyl's post ok, your's, makes you look like an unintelligent fool that is out to pick on any woman who decides to be a stay at home mom and call her unintelligent. Considering this is a site run by perhaps one of the most vocal feminist today, not smart.”
“so MikeJames I'll tell you to see the above as I stated to natalplum, same thing applies to you, bigotry and ignorance crosses the net from their head to yours I see. Try having a free thought and be an individual, which is a true sign of intelligence.”
“At 18, you can get married, move out on your own, buy porn, buy cigarettes, vote, get tried as an adult, own a gun, go to war, do everything as an "adult" can do except drink, where is the problem in seeing that is no longer a child, but an adult?”
“She said she got married at 18, perhaps in your life you were married because of a child, but surprising enough, people do still get married because of love, and children come later. Stop jumping to conclusions about people you know nothing about.”
“your intelligence seems to be as limited as is your capability to read and understand culture, all things which give credibilty to one...
A.) Internet Culture sets defined parameters for posting in public forums as ok to forgo the use of any capitalizaton, puncuation, or proper spelling
B.) No where in her post did she state she was preg as a teen (who is jumping the gun here, perhaps you were with child as a teen and so all are?)
C.) IQ Tests vary by the test given and one given a rank of 140+ (Genius or near Genius) can be the equivilient of another in the 120+ range. Without knowning which test was administered you can not give any credit of knowing what classification to assign.
Basically before you start slamming on someone, take a moment to read, understand what you have read, comprehend it, review any known facts, and make your statement based only on what you know, before you do what you did, which was...
A.) Make yourself look like a fool
B.) Insult another person which makes you an arrogant jerk”
“Wow bigteffie...are you really that unsure of what you said or just hoping that no one else would catch it. Let's take a look back at it...
"and God blew the breath of life into Adam and became a living soul ....breath not until it is out the shoot no breathing before."
Let's see inanimate object (nothing living no heart beat, etc) gets breath of life from God and becomes alive. Organs start working, etc. Baby has viable organs and heartbeat within a few weeks. As (going from a biblical standpoint) no person can give life into anything (God is the only creator), then it would appear that God gives the breath of life to the fetus while in the womb. Furthermore no where in your quote did it say that Adam took a breath...it was simply that God gave a breath of live. Therefore the baby doesn't need to breath air to be alive.”
“You do understand that the idea of the ultrasound is to allow the potential parent(s) to see the fetus and either see or hear the heart beat. Doesn't much sound like it wouldn't be killing anything/anyone.”
p c r on Feb 1, 2012 at 22:40:08
“The purpose of the ultrasound is to be another expensive unnecessary hoop for a woman to jump through in order to have a legal medical procedure.
If any woman requested a sonogram, she could certainly pay and get one. The legislature seems to think that these women getting abortions don't realize they are pregnant. It isn't a decision entered into lightly. It takes soul searching and is a major decision. Forcing the ultrasound is unnecessary and ridiculous.
What you also do not realize is that 93% of abortions are before 13 weeks, Before 10 weeks, the sonogram is transvaginal. That means a probe larger than an average penis is shoved into the vagina and manipulated for up to 15 minutes. As it medically unnecessary and not ordered by any doctor, it is state sanctioned rape with a foreign object.
Rape doesn't kill, but it is humiliating, painful and wrong.”
“Wow aren't you just the one who knows about all men. It is a well known common thing for many men to have some form of ED. Remember ED comes in many fashions and forms with many different causes. A lot of men are also taking these meds as much for the benefit of their wives/gfs as for theirs. If you can't ever make love to your spouse again, because they have no libido or a physical problem that prevents it...and then this pill comes that can renew it, you would want your spouse to take it too. Why not try taking the time to read a little about the problems that are out there before commenting on them. Your comment reminds me of the past when people said that things like BiPolar, D.I.D., Postpartum Depression and other mental illnesses didn't really exist either. Aren't we glad it wasn't someone like you in charge of those issues as well.”

“This is per word of mouth. It must be true because men say it and therefore need this drug.
Whem a woman has a verifiable medical condition, she is not allowed to make a decision for her treatment. She must have the approval of men and jump through their hoops of unnecessary procedures, like rape with a foreign object-- oh, I mean transvaginal ultrasound to prove she is pregnant before she has an abortion. So many women are trying to have expensive, painful D&C's for no reason that they must be stopped.
Get real. Many men may have problems, but many men lie just to enhance an already functional penis.
An abortion is a legal treatment for a verifiable condition that men are trying to control.”
“Someone should tell you that it's a woman's reproductive system in tune with the male penis (not always has to be erect mind you), that cause 100% of pregnancies. If the female reproductive system wasn't in place and only an erect penis caused them, then every gay man in the world could have their very own child the natural way without ever having to be near a woman. Think before you type please. If you haven't ever been given the talk about where babies come from, visit your local library and check out a book or two on the subject.”

“"If the female reproductive system wasn't in place and only an erect penis caused them, then every gay man in the world could have their very own child the natural way without ever having to be near a woman."
What a ridiculous argument to suggest that a man could impregnate himself. Of course she's not referring to a scenario like that. Last time I checked, 100% of pregnancies which begin INSIDE THE FEMALE REPRODUCTIVE SYSTEM are indeed caused by erect penises. It is only through the male's involvement that the woman becomes impregnated. That is the point at which the man's physical involvement in a pregnancy ends and the remainder of the process belongs solely to a woman. What a woman chooses to subject her own body to should be only her decision, not a politician's domain.”
