Me? I think women should do what ever it is they want to do with their lives, after all, it's theirs....”
“It's like those climate change predictions made by the IPCC in 1990. Had some numbers in there and "experts" to come up with something scientific-sounding. Then 20 years later we now know those predictions were entirely without foundation.
If academic "experts" are now going to start telling people who will win elections, then we're in trouble. People will do anything if an expert tells them to.”
“I don't feel like arguing so all I will say is that just because you only heard of the organization after the media took it over does not mean the organization did not exist until then. Believe me, don't believe me, I don't care, I'm too tired to argue the point.”
“Abortion is illegal in Ireland now, why don't you go over there and ask them how many coathanger abortions they have - see how well that goes over.
The rate of these back alley abortions is incredibly small. Most illegal abortions were done by prostitutes before birth control. I hate to break it to you, but the media created it. Like suicide bombers. These are things that don't really happen, but have been made to seem like they do in order to shock the public to manufacture consent to a policy.”

“You have no facts to back any of you bs. And 9/11 kind of proves the rest of your statement as wrong, as well.”
“I'm not going to give an opinion for or against abortion, but I will say that it's offensive and disgusting to show a picture of a coathanger.”

“It's a reality of back alley abortions that many women died from - that is what is offensive.”

“No it is not. It is an accurate reflection of what will happen if abortion is banned. If you bother to read your history, you would know that women used coat hangers and the like often and with disasterous results.”

“These scientists are hacks, obviously it's the toxic non-stick coatings on the pans that come off as you fry things. And the higher rate for hamburger is obviously because of the "pink slime" type stuff in hamburger meat. If findings like this are mysterious to them they need to find new work.”

“Yes, Rob you are right. I cook with a cast Iron fry pan and I buy my meat from a local butcher shop that only buys natural fed beef without steriods or pink slime. Just the difference in taste from supermarket meat is unbelievable!”
Tabre on Aug 21, 2012 at 15:43:02
“Please show where pink slime studies show an increase in cancer. My understanding is pink slime is protein. Pans do make a difference as well as if you burn or char your meat when cooking it. The more char or burnt on the meat, the worse.
BTW, I did know a vegetarian who died from pancreatic cancer. PC does not discriminate whom it attacks. I also know a person who smokes daily and is over ten years surviving pancreatic cancer and doing fairly well. They are not a vegetarian either and still continue to live. No one said life was fair. You can try and beat the odds, but the end is inevitable.”

“A "rightie"? As in "righty tighty lefty loosey"? Grow up. Slotting people into categories and criticizing them based on that is ignorant. One of my favorite presidents was JFK. Maybe the worst president was GWB. So what does that make me?”

“Quantitative easing didn't cause inflation, it caused the opposite? So what, deflation?
Half of these assume that there is very little inflation now, which is bunk. When these people predicted high inflation they didn't predict the government's official inflation rate would be high, just that the actual cost of real things like food would go up. The government also says we're in a recovery. And that there was no war in Libya.”
efffox on Aug 17, 2012 at 22:15:14
“Things like the cost of food ARE included in the inflation numbers!! Don't try to understand economics Rob - you're a rightie - and everyone knows righties aren't good at math. Or history. Or science. Or spelling. Or reading.”
“Both were created as reactions against the bailouts and against the police state. Both were created to oppose how the country is turning into pre-ww2 Germany. The tea party was not created by Fox News, it was created by Ron Paul supporters - it was grass-roots. And occupy was similarly started in the streets.Both movements were coalitions of both parties. Both movements knew that our current government is robbing the poor to give to the rich. Contrary to what you have heard, the tea party's goal was to prevent the elites from taking the people's money through a corrupt government.”

“The very early roots of the Teabaggers (back when they called themselves that) my have been grassy... but before any large event occurred, Dick Armey & his pals were bankrolling the show. Fox didn't invent the Teaparty, but they did all they could to sponsor it -- right down to, you know, sponsoring their events. The Teaparty's first rants were about taxation -- while they were being taxed at historically low rates. Their second rant was "take our country back" -- back from whom? Oh yeah, that Black guy in their White House.
Similarities between the 'baggers & Occupy are superficial at best. Occupy is not a fully owned subsidiary of any political party (are there Occupiers running for election, threatening the Democratic party? No. Teabaggers vs Republicans? Be honest..)”
“What is a "deadly Islamic attack"? Will they put a new billboard up for thousands of mafia jobs and come up with some hyperbolic number of "deadly Italian attacks"? Or what about how many millions of civilians have been killed since 2001 by military? Will there be a list of the tens of thousands of government attacks? "It's not anarchy it's reality" or something like that?
“My last comment was auto-removed for some reason.
What I was saying is that I agree with you, it is because of society. My point is that most of the women I know go-along with what society wants. And criticize me for not caring what others think and for just doing whatever I want, violating social conventions.”
“"the first-ever National Tea Party vs. Occupy Movement debate."
Translation: the media has co-opted the anti-totalitarian movements to such an extent that they are portraying them as polar-opposites when they were founded with essentially the same principles. If there's one thing the elites hate, it's solidarity.”
chrisdean24 on Aug 17, 2012 at 00:55:07

“Maybe I should have said estrogen-instincts. When women fight and act promiscuously they show higher testosterone levels. But some women do naturally have higher testosterone than others... By feminine I don't mean what all women have, I'm talking about some non-existent idealization.”
“Women who decide to wear burkas to be independent and assert their rights? Not much in today's society, but maybe in another time or place, sure. But women in today's society walking around topless is more a violation of feminine instincts than if women started a pro-burka movement. I think the most sane women will probably do what they think is normal and what they feel is right based on instinct. If a woman was traumatized and as a result started some obsession with modesty and hiding herself, then I think she also has issues. I just think those issues are better to have than an obsession with throwing away everything feminine about herself.”
darkeegan on Aug 16, 2012 at 23:15:43
“the reason the stares exist is because that difference has been fetishized. it is the same reason that women get the stares when not wearing the burqa in hardline countries.”

“You are expecting to pass yourself off as an expert on feminine instincts? A male? Please excuse me if I ignore you.”
“I'm not going to say all women. I have known a few girls who are calm and relaxed and know what they really like without being on edge with an almost hypnotic constant need to be in control... Those are the ones in the shrinking percentage of marriages that don't end in divorce.
The problem is that they feel they have to hide it because society doesn't accept them and they don't want to reveal their vulnerabilities. But they certainly exist.”
“Don't buy into this GMO scam. These are only stop-gap measures. Either the population is at a level where everyone can be fed, or it's not. Slightly tweaking the vitamins in foods might allow for some small percent higher population, but that's it. If the population continues to grow, then what happens?
The only way to stop malnutrition is to stabilize the population, and if that happens, then there will be enough food for everyone without feeding children engineered "food" whose safety has not been verified.”

“I don't understand. Does this make her more liberated as a woman to have drug addicts and homeless people staring at her breasts as she walks around?
Never underestimate the power of women's liberation. It was used in an ad campaign to make most women start smoking too. I just need to convince women that they can only be liberated and free if they sleep with me - that the whole male-controlled world is forcing them to abstain from her desire to sleep with me. Seems like that argument can convince certain women to do anything.”

“There is a grain of truth to what he's saying though. There are a few people who were former intelligence agents, or general nutcases. And then there are people who go online and try to convince these types to do acts of terrorism in order to use as an excuse to increase government power. If an organization can see all the internet traffic they can find someone who is crazy enough to do something. Then they just need to provide the means. A lot of covert operations, by many organizations, happen online.
Of course Obama doing it himself is a simplification. He probably would not be informed of it even if an agency of the federal government were behind it.”
“Taibbi is one of the best reporters. But he's wrong. He thinks that Holder wants to prosecute the offenders, but is scared to. But he is on their side. The last thing he wants is to prosecute them.

“"The last thing he wants is to prosecute them." Damn straight.
Both the Democrats and Republicans have their tongues so far up Wall Street's fundament they could lick the soles of its hooves.
Griftopia. Written by Mr Taibbi, it presents a cogent argument for the case that the US government no longer serves the citizenry but rather dances to the tune of a small cadre of kakistocratic neo-feudalists.”
“I don't think this can be helped. When the media constantly brings up Hitler and Nazis again and again, it gets into the minds of the public. So obviously people will make jokes about it. And the whole media narrative is so wrapped up in mythology that the public doesn't even see a person, or a party, but a caricature. I think after nearly a century it's time to stop showing those black and white films and move on with our lives.”
He would not have been selected for VP unless he is (or can be brought) on board with carbon taxes. Let's not conflate the issues here. He is anti-environment. He will probably allow any disgusting garbage to be dumped into the environment. And yet probably push a carbon tax which does nothing for the environment, but further centralizes power.”
“I agree that PBS is a scam. It should not cost half a billion dollars per year. But half a billion is nothing compared to trillions. You could fund a thousand Corporation for Public Broadcasting's and still not spend the amount of money that was given to the banks for "bailouts".

“The BBC receives around $120 million from a license fee. It then makes a profit on things like magazine, news sites, world wide distribution of content. It spends around $4 bn on programing a year with its international services being for profit.
This is where I believe Romney is making a mistake. His answer is to cut what they are doing. Therefore, provide nothing. The Conservative Government in the UK got into power on an austerity ticket by saying "more for less." He should be asking, how can we as a country provide a better entitlement program for less money? They even said they would do a spending review when they got into power, but they said they would preserve the NHS & international development funding as two programs that benefit the poor the most, instead of simply subsiding the middle class.
My point is this. PBS is a scam. It does cost a lot, but does it give the quality that it could? Is this just endemic of spending that doesn't give quality? These are the questions he needs to be raising, but simply, he is not up to it.”
