“But its not a right.

We have a right to free speech.
We have a right to assemble.
We have a right to own a gun (notice the government doesn't buy the gun for us)
We have a right to to start a newspaper.

All rights are free. Just because legislation causes something to happen doesn't make it a right.”

andyriveria on Dec 10, 2013 at 09:06:14

“no they arent every single right you mention requires the government to take money form somebody and give it to somebody else so you can have that right.

there are no free rights”

“And if their wages were higher, they would no longer qualify for public assistance yet they would still be republicans. So what's you point?”

Kaptain Kool on Dec 10, 2013 at 03:51:25

“Well, what's your point? My comment was a response to your previous comment, which was just rhetoric and didn't have a point.
And, never mind "if their wages were higher." They'd have to get jobs first.”

“How is it demeaning to say women use emotion while men block out the emotion and instead go with logic?”

dragonladywaltham on Dec 10, 2013 at 08:33:18

“Because we are PEOPLE and s/b talked to exactly the same. Talking is NOT the issue. What Republicans are DOING to American women with legislation is just short of Teleban Sharia law. We are equal free Americans and want to be treated as such. Republicans are WRONG on SO MANY LEVELS. Get rid of the old white prejudice men and GET REAL!!!!”

“Who cares where it's from - it's still true. But you don't want to agree with it because you think any time a republican speaks, it sexist.”

“Well not EVERY TIME, just most of the time.”

joemondo on Dec 9, 2013 at 22:52:00

“"Who cares where it's from - it's still true."

What an oddly unscientific approach. You found a person saying it online so it's true?

This is the sort of patronizing so typical of the GOP that lost them 60% of women in the last Presidential election, to say nothing of the 70% of Latinos and Asians.”

“If your employer pays your insurance, it's part of you pay. You don't get it because it's a right, you get it in return for your labor. I'm simply saying health care isn't a right. I don't know what you're talking about.”

“I'm talking about the subject of this article. You are aware of the article your posting in I imagine. So the right I have is determining with whom I want to share my life with and with whom I decide to share the benifits of my labor with as a spouse. Marriage Equality is a right. And this moor-on Agema doesn't have the place place to tell me how to live my life. He should mind his place. And if you are with him then you need to as well. Cause I'm real tired of being told how to live by people whose place it is not to tell me.”

“How is this sexist if its the truth?

http://dsc.discovery.com/tv-shows/curiosity/topics/10-ways-men-women-comminucate-differently.htm

From the fourth paragraph:

"Women communicate through dialogue, discussing EMOTIONS, choices and problems. Males remain action-oriented -- the goal of communication is to achieve something."

I guess that make the Discovery Channel sexist too.”

RainbowTeacher on Dec 9, 2013 at 22:40:49

“The Discovery Channel is not a scientific source. It is a TV network home to shows like: Yukon Men, Moonshiners, GoldRush, Fast and Loud - a real source on women and science, right?”

ssj337 on Dec 9, 2013 at 22:38:58

“If you are using the Discovery Channel for your source of "truth" then you have too many problems for anyone to attempt to address.”

Robert SF on Dec 9, 2013 at 22:37:36

“You have a good point. But when the GOP says it, it just comes out wrong. Maybe it's their long history of real sexism.”

dragonladywaltham on Dec 9, 2013 at 22:32:39

“Women talk to EACH OTHER that way. Stop demeaning us if you haven't got a clue.”

phoenixdoglover on Dec 9, 2013 at 22:29:21

“You emphasized the wrong word. All people discuss "emotions, choices and problems". The key word is DIALOGUE. That implies a two way form of discussion that is less judgmental and open to different points of view.”

“The problem is the universities.

If the price of car payments was too high, you wouldn't complain about the finance people, you would complain about the auto companies.

Universities (and state legislatures in many cases) set the price and most of these universities are managed by democrats. If you think the price is too high, fix it through the people that set the price.”
