Well, as long as abortion and gay marriage are outlawed, then all else is fine. Just sayin....
Abortion will never be outlawed as long as progressive secularism is the new religion.

Gay marriage will eventually become the new definition of societal standards.

Until some crazy person wants to marry his sister just to prove he can under the new definition of marriage.

I remember many of those scares in my lifetime.
But people now eat sugar substitutes and eggs like they're going out of style even though they were avoided like the plague during those scares.
Anyone who is "industry-friendly" is under attack these days. It's the new fundamentally transformed America we were promised.
"...Anyone who is "industry-friendly" is under attack these days...." - As it should be.

BTW, the Tufts group has disappeared.

But I cannot believe your source supported DDT. They probably thing Agent Orange give you vitamin C!

Seek mental health, Carol.

Your ignorance is off the charts.

Fact is, some suger substitutes are not healthy.

Fact is, eggs are dangerous for some people to eat. Esp. those like yourself, who take statins for high cholesterol.

Fact is, you're a fool who's in denial.

Never.

Oh yes, Agent Orange; my brother died from exposure to it in Korea.

Ever read about the atrocities and birth defects of children in Iraq after our use of white phosphorous?

Be careful. The politcally correct police will soon take away something you enjoy because they know what's best.
It's that slippery slope of Big Brother. It's here and only needs to gain a little more momentum.
Which Big Brother??

The one who wants to outlaw abortions?? The ones who seek to deny women's rights??

You're completely crazy, Carol.

""Egg yolks almost as bad as smoking

RHEANA MURRAY

Friday, August 17, 2012

Think twice before you bite into a hearty breakfast of eggs benedict slathered in hollandaise sauce — you may as well be lighting up, according to a new study.

In terms of cardiovascular risks, the yolk-based sauce that makes the dish so good is almost as bad for you as smoking cigarettes, researchers in Canada found.

“One jumbo chicken egg yolk has about 237 milligrams of cholesterol,” study author Dr. David Spence told CNN.

Spence explains that eating large amounts of cholesterol causes plaque buildup in the blood vessels, the same way smoking does.""

\\--------

I'm glad you smoke, Carol. I'm glad you're overweight. I'm glad you have high cholesterol. I'm glad you have diabetes.

You serve as a bad example to us all. As your health declines, you'll be the one slipping off the oxygen mask to have a puff on your cigarette.

After all, it's not bad for you, right??

Stay in denial. Nature will flush you down the drain early. And you daughter will say "I tried to get Mom to stop abusing her health".

No, not going to lay down, it's a beautiful breezy day and I am going to go to the beach and jog off this Thanksgiving food!! My daughter is home from school for the weekend.

I am against government legislating human behavior.

These are two different issues.

However, I am in favor of the government having in place safety standards against being poisoned by unscrupulous corporations whose only concern is to make a buck, no matter the cost to Americans, or all human beings.

People can still smoke, and drink. Drinking and driving is not illegal, being over the limit is. I'm in favor of legalizing pot too.
I'm not in favor of entrapment by the police regarding drinking and driving, or red light cameras or no knock warrants or random police pulling people over to harrass them.
The various things you mentioned have nothing to do with the President or national politics. Those are all local issues, school board issues, usually being brought forth by parents (re school lunches, soft drinks etc)

Exactly whose rights is he fighting for Lily?

The rights of women to kill their unborn?
The rights of manipulators to manipulate a broken system?
The rights of progressive secularists to silence Christians?
The rights of the unemployed to rely on big government?
The rights of have-nots to take from those who have?

Or are you talking about other rights I'm missing?

This is so interesting to me; you are so pumped up about wanting to allow the corporations to be able to poison us, ruin our environment, burn all the trees, drill on all our shorelines, destroy all fauna; but:
You want the government to be able to rape a woman with a vaginal probe; want her to prove she was raped to get an abortion!! Want her to be forced to bear the rapists baby; want the rapist to have visitation rights (31 states); but: you don't want that mother and child to have healthcare.

You are sure screwed up in "la cabeza"

Why do you hate women Carol?

Your view of 'political correctness' is as ignorant as your views on politics and religion.

If you're too stupid to face the 'common sense' that scientists and doctors tell us about smoking and eating, that's fine.

But don't dare call it 'political correctness'.

'Political correctness' is a conservative issue, forcing people to adhere to an anti-science, anti-fact outlook on life.

Best example is the 'Creationism' you nitwits are trying to force on others.

All of it total nonsense, laughed at by the entire cientific community.

Yet wingnuts like you want to force a phony, religion based set of ignorance onto the public.

Evolution is a proven science.

Creationism is a knee jerk reaction of the simple minded, folks like you.

We'd like to, believe me. Liberals won't allow us to stay out of their panties or their bedrooms. They want us to be silent when they suck a growing life out of their wombs.

Maybe if you all kept your sex lives to yourselves and took birth control pills to begin with.

LOL! Go take a walk, you're losing yer minduh!

but, I will respond before I go:

The rights of women to make decisions over their own lives and bodies; abortion is legal in this country
Manipulators who manipulate a broken system? Are you talking about Mitt?
No one is trying to silence Christians, that's a lie.
Christians are attempting to impose their religion on the rest of the population
The haves are continuing to take from the have nots ($420,000 per Walmart store)
Unemployment insurance is just that; insurance that each employee pays into in the event that he becomes unemployed.

Since there is no government in Somalia, there is no "PC."

So by your logic, you have much more "freedom."

I thought it was clear. The only way you can't come to the open conclusion is to be selective about your freedoms.

Like the Politically Correct Republicans who force ultra sounds on women looking to get an abortion??

Or say ludicrous things like 'Legitimate rape does not lead to pregnancy'??

Or say 'womens bodies have ways of not getting pregnant after being raped??

Or politically correct O'Reilly, who fights a ficticious 'war on Christmas'??

PC is all on your side.

Science is on our side.

That is why you will continue to be a loser.

Have another cigarette!!
