Who wants to live like THAT?

Welfare is there, so I don't worry about it.

Obamma is there, so I don't worry about him.

No ovaries, so I don't worry about abortion.

Only man I have sex with is me, so I don't worry about that.

Hmm, everybody got they "issues".

Nov. 4: Israel killed a mentally ill Palestinian walking near the Israeli-imposed “no-go zone” inside the Gaza Strip -- an event that triggered a rocket from Gaza into southern Israel, which did not cause any deaths or injuries.
· Nov. 8: Four Israeli military tanks and a bulldozer entered Gaza, fatally shooting a 13-year-old boy who had been playing soccer by his family’s house.
· Nov. 10: In retaliation, two rockets were fired from Gaza into southern Israel, and an anti-tank missile injured four soldiers, when it hit an Israeli army jeep that had crossed over into the territory. Meanwhile, the Palestinian Center for Human Rights reported the killing of five more Palestinians, four of whom were civilians – including two soccer players age 16 and 17 and two young men (18 and 19) who ran to the scene. Forty-nine others were wounded, including 10 children.
· Nov. 11: Amid talks of a truce, six more Palestinians (all but one were civilians) were wounded and another was killed by both air strikes and troops on the ground.

We ALL pay, and we ALL get, whatever it is that we MIGHT need!
None of that pesky, bothersome, picking and choosing.
Actuary tables will do the picking and choosing FOR (to) us!
Is that how it works?
Have you ever purchased and insurance policy? Did you indicate that that your premiums could not pay for contraception or abortion for others?

Yes, there should be no private insurance companies making healthcare a for profit business.
Healthcare should be a universal program paid for through taxation, not attached to employment. Everyone is covered, no co pays, no deductibles.
That is the best way to go.

Think the current admin dat be--will be able to get past junior high hormone centered thinking (like wahwahwah fweeduhm birf contwol already in existence for thirty years, suing states over staes right to protect it's own, not knowing a terrorist attack from a parade...etc etc) and actually move on to some grown up issues for a change?

Like BUDGETS...FOR ALL of America again-rather than against (and always draining) it?

Oh hopey---what a changey that would be!!!

Everyone knows this, including the majority of Israelis who are moderate.
I bet it would end if Israel dropped a couple of nukes on 'em. It sure shut them crazy-ass japs up in a hurry didn't it?

Are you a recent graduate of Rightwing Charm School?

Notice that none of the discussion about contraception ever mentions the males?

Perhaps there should be a special Sex Fund, a tax on men who want to have unprotected sex and no responsibility for their offspring.
Pay to play? What say you?

How The Conservative Media Lost The Election

The plan was to unmask Obama. It didn't work.

....Unlike some of his colleagues in the conservative press, Carlson showed no hint of regret at his site's performance, citing record traffic and crediting Obama's first term with making the company profitable. In fact, he said he founded The Daily Caller out of frustration with the unsatisfactory vetting Obama received in 2008.

"I think we're the ones practicing traditional journalism and I think a lot of legacy media has ceased to," Carlson said, emphatically. "And that's why I think we'll win in the end."

But for all the tough talk of his less reflective fellow travelers on the online right, Riehl, a true believer, remains leery of using click rates and ad revenue as a measure of success. He still wants their work to pay off at the ballot box.

"That's something I said right after the election," Riehl said. "I don't give a shit about all these people talking about their page views. Look at the results. We did something wrong."

Dan Senor, who served as an adviser to Mitt Romney, said that Republicans need to do a better job talking about middle class economics, during an appearance on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" Wednesday. Senor also mentioned immigration as an area where Republicans needed a new message and agenda. "I think Republicans need to do a lot more there," he said.

Though he declined to name names, Senor also went after Republican office holders whom he said were in discussions with the transition team about a cabinet position in a Romney administration before the election and then attacked Romney after he lost the election.

Nah, Lily is teasing, she will gladly pay for the Kentucky hillbilly's mental health treatment. I think we can all agree as a country that the Kentucky hillbilly needs said treatment.

Tacking on a hundred pounds to make yourself less attractive is an option, however there are men with a penchant for the fat ladies.
