Truth is not ignorance. Condoms damage society? OMG, LOL!! Now that's what I call I G N O R A N C E.
Did you know even teenagers are allowed condoms. Condoms are preventing children and the desire to have children and are allowing a gate to use for feminists. Teenagers are also using them, and their use increases the sexual deviance increasing in teens.

Foodstamps and Obama votes...

those on food stamps has increased...

"...by more than 15 million recipients-under the Obama administration. During that same time, the unemployment rate has stayed the same. Either those outside of the workforce have been decimated by the Obama economy or this administration is making a conscious effort to get more Americans reliant on government. Or both."

The supermarket house bread brands are significantly less expensive than Wonder Bread, making the product a tough sell when it offers no real advantage.
And you know that how? You see unlike you, Flack and other mutts on this thread who assume that they speak for the entire nation__I can only speak for my own region.

Merita a Hostess Brands Co actually bakes some "in house brands."

Publix has in house bargain breads, in house premium breads which along with various other name brand breads are sold on the bread aisle, baked fresh in store breads and various specialty breads and rolls sold elsewhere in the store.

None of that sht matters. Hostess Brands is history because it's been a very poorly managed company for a good number of years. Some one will will pick up the valuable pieces and trademarks and move forward. Case closed!

America is not going to starve!

Can you find any good news relating to Obamacare? I mean, about it not costing businesses and the middle class paying for it?
It's more the case of trying to contain and repair a failed system, the one you are trying to defend. When you set up a system that is supposed to deliver a shared benefit across a nation. Then the obvious way to make that work is to make everyone pay for it. There is NO POINT of having an insurance scheme where only the sick join. It's the same as only insuring the houses that get burnt down. This is the system you defend, where the elderly are covered who will use it the most and the young & fit don't have insurance because there is no penalty. A system where you are encouraged NOT to join until you need to claim. That is about as f..d up as you can get. But it's what you try and disguise under the cloak of personal freedoms and you know all that is total BS just like most Republican ideology.

Reality check...teens have been having sex for eons. You can't prevent that or believe it away. Exposure to TV, movies, the media, friends, etc., may encourage sex, but no matter, they'd be doing it anyway. Once those hormones kick in, there's no stopping those urges, unless we understand the nature of the beast. E D U C A T I O N is not ignorance; refusing to educate our children is. Condoms can help to prevent a lot of unwanted pregnancies, and that also means less abortions. Now what is so wrong with that, considering the population is exploding, along with poverty and soaring medical costs.

They may have been having sex for a long time, but not in large numbers like today, TV is teaching kids about sex and teenage culture and how to fit in within it to have sex, but they aren't taught the consequences of it. Sex education and parents having a good amount of "talks" with their kids is the way to do it better, It isn't about exposure, its about their lack of knowledge, being replaced with misleading info they get. And no, they can control themselves, if they are taught how to and have the support necessary. Condoms and abortion is encouraging teens to just go out and have sex without care and caution, and most teens don't even know how to use a condom.
Stepping away from birth control would mean kids rely on the state much less, it would cause parents to have to deal with the kids babies more, but in the long run, this tedious step would increase the USA better, by rejecting birth control. As for abortion you idiotic left wing fool, its murder.

The USPS was on track to make a small profit in 2006 which turns out to have been a banner year for most industries__but sht happens eh? Snail mail displaced by e-mail and more importantly junque mail going online too__Chico's catalogs for instance and many others which were huge USPS customers and just disappeared after learning that print was no longer the best way to reach select customers.

Was the USPS supposed to show profits or satisfy stockholders?

It surely contributed to the US leading the world in matters of trust and commerce__didn't it???

A war with iran may be very well necessary, as they good be hiding nuclear bombs, they are attacking Israel, and the issue is being unresolved, the regime of Iranian needs to be defeated to stop their threat they have on Israel.

In the case of the USPS, the company is government postal workers.

What are you trying to say? You're not making any sense, so is it safe to say you are a Democrat?

You missed the sixties eh?

Matter of fact the sexual revolution hit the US in the mid fifties after being born in the UK and Italy during WWII and then being nurtured in the Philippines and Korea afterward.

Condoms have been in use since the early 1900's.

Obviously you sit down to talk with your teen, first. The teen must feel comfortable with his parents and trust them. Not giving your teen the necessary information and condoms if they need them, would be turning them away and giving them no alternative. Today, most families have 2 working parents or single parent homes. They would not do well coping with the added responsibility of an unwanted pregnancy or raising that child. If that teen got pregnant the first time and his/her parents took on the responsibility of that baby, that teen would only learn that his parents will vouch for his/her "mistake". I've seen teens have several babies because of this kind of logic. Having a baby would ruin the chances of a teen getting a college education and the chances of earning a good income to support his or herself in the future. Babies tie teens and families down. If abortion is murder, so is the suffering of unwanted children in this country because no one feels that they're their problem. Many of these unwanted babies grow up in abused homes and end up incarcerated in our prisons.

Since Republicans wouldn't care where my next meal came from or helping out an unwanted child, why should they care what I do with my body? The truth is, they don't really give a damn about abortion. It's a political tool, and that's all. Republicans act is if they really care about abortion, yet would deny that child funding because it's considered socialism and an insult to their tight wallets. I'm not advocating abortion or saying that it's right or wrong. Although I would personally find it difficult to have an abortion, I'm merely pointing out that it should be my right, if I choose to do so.
I see you are brainwashed. You bought into the bogus scare tactics.

You made my point, you cannot seperate your own moral beliefs from politics. You just made that perfectly clear.
