Barack Obama, our next President

Everyone does not have access to birth control. The best most effective methods are expensive. They require a doctor's appointments, prescriptions & follow ups.
As for better availability of these more reliable options, talk top the Pope & Republicans.
Sterilization is the most effective and least costly method of birth control.

An attack on the United States territory that kills 3000 people necessitates a full-scale invasion.
I don't expect the willfully ignorant party-line regurgitators to acknowledge the fact that Afghanistan attacked us on September 11, 2001. Hell, they lied about Al Qaeda not attacking us just recently.
But, you may have a point. The Japanese Navy attacked us on December 7, 1941. I don't recall Hirohito being involved in that attack. Tojo wasn't there, either. According to your logic, we had no reason to invade: Guadacanal, Tarawa, North Africa, Sicily, New Guinea, or Normandy,... or even Germany. Germany never attacked us.
The government of Afghanistan willingly allowed Al Qaeda to operate in Afghanistan, condoned their attack on the United States, and protected them as a country would their standing armed forces when we went after them. Afghanistan attacked us on September 11, 2001.
Anywhere the Wahhabists are, there will be "suicide" bombers. I think it is interesting that the only known survivor of a "suicide" bomb attack was coerced by the terrorists into driving a car toward an American convoy when the terrorists detonated a bomb he didn't even know was in the car. Coercion has been the tool of despots throughout the ages. The communists were notorious for this throughout the Cold War.
My comment about the invasion was regarding Iraq, you named one terrorist there so I was asking you if one terrorist necessitated a full scale invasion of IRAQ.

Big surprise, Eman jumps in to protect the use of slurs. Calling a black man "boy" is a racist slur. Everyone know this.
If Obama doesn't want to be called "boy", then he should act like a man and accept responsibility for his failures.

Wow, if Bin Laden was hiding in the Sudan again, Flack says we would still have invaded Afghanistan.
Terrorists have camps in a wide range of countries & remain there with little government hassle. Why Afghanistan??? There were camps in North Africa, Yemen, Sudan, etc.
You people are wacked out.
The last I looked we are doing just that. Not to the extent of Afghanistan or Iraq but we are there. Scale of force to threat is a good scale to have. Besides the last three are not governments that support terrorism, I don't think. They are states with terrorism in them. You reading comprehension does you in again.

I need some personal advise from anyone who is retired and receiving SS.

Do you have to wait two months after your birth date and turning 62 for the first SS check to arrive?

It was explained to me that you have to be one month "eligible" and then the check is one month behind that.

I always thought you were officially retired upon turning 62, SS checks and all, which isn't really the case if you have to work two more months.

Afghanistan had no viable government in 2001. The Taliban was the government and harbored the terrorists who conducted the 9/11 attack.
The only mistake made by Bush in Afghanistan was not using nuclear weapons to kill every one of the bastards.
Tell it to DBWriter aka Colonel Flagg he is insisting Afghanistan attacked the U.S. and a full scale invasion of Iraq was necessary because there was one terrorist there who by all accounts was already dead at the hands of Saddam. He's making all this stuff up not me, take it up with him. You'd think he worked for the Bush administration.

No difference. Women in combat are a joke because they lack the physical ability and put the men in danger because of a perceived need to protect them.
Helicopter pilots, Medivac nurses and more.

Women are not serving in the infantry/artillery/armored you stupid fk__but those exposed to combat, as Jessica Lynch was, should be awarded for their contributions through pay and promotion.

Pay attention mutt__or STFU.

Culture decides the whole family unit but who is to say what's best?
I think for the most part money/finances is more the issue and not necessarily being raised by one parent.
Homer is partially correct in that families headed by an unwed mother are way more likely to be living in poverty.

However, male children need their father in the house to show them how to be men instead of wimps.
