Og Bluebonnet I forgot to ask you about the difference between legitimate rape and illegitimate rape.

Since they are both rapes why do your Conservative fiction writers try to paint one as less disgusting?

I am unaware of the history and don't want to get involved. I do have some controversial views on the topic of rape. You do have to keep in mind that some use the term "legitimate" to mean that it really was a rape. There are women who harm women in general by making up false reports.

Sometimes false reports are made in duress, like the woman who was caught in an affair and told if it wasn't a rape, she was dead. She got an innocent man convicted. Maybe having sex with a married person isn't exactly "innocent," he was no rapist either. Anyway, that same woman was cheating with another man, and she was bold enough to bring him home. The husband walked in, murdered her, and tried to murder the boyfriend. Nobody else will ever yell rape at his demand again.

I'm not a conservative. I'm a Libertarian.

Rape is rape. No more. No less. "legitimate rape" is a contradiction.

Like when they say SSM denies a child a mother and father.
How does a child get concie3ved without a mother and father?
And let's not forget the favorite subject of Conservative fiction writers: "Original intent".
You know, like when you say that when they wrote the phrase "ALL CITIZENS" they didn't REALLY mean "all" but instead meant " just the citizens we approve of".
Off topic but It's nice seeing you again and I hope you and your family are doing well. For me it's been a weird few weeks but one of my nephews just entered the Marine Corps.
I have read so many tales and false accuasations of President Bush since 2000 in would top War and Peace by Tolstoy. The issue of gays is no worry of mine, that's their businesses...as most republicans agree with. My in laws have a brother who is gay..he and his partner are good guys and successful pharmicists....they think obamacare is a looming disaster.

The citizens "we" approve of are those who work hard for a living, contribute to society..not be a burden living on welfare and serve their country. Thank your nephew for his service.....mine just returned from his second tour with th 1st Infantry Division, US Army. His first tour he was in Mosul when saddam was caputred. I served on the East/West German border 69-71.

Don't judge all by a few idiots.

Rape is rape.....the rapists are criminals and should be put in jail. Most conservatives on the pages I read agree.

Do you belive that Bush "stole" the elction...after Gore's team started the litigation? After Gores team attempted to have the Florida courts declare all polls in Florida closed at 7PM?

Do you belive that President Bush "allowd" 9/11 to happen? Even though we were attacked 7 times by al queda during clinton's terms?

Bush caused Hurricane Katrina? Blew up the levee's?

It's quite a list....just curious!!

Never said that! Thanks for proving my point! You must be an assuming "libertarian" bigot. I also think a libertarian claim is a cop out.

Find a post where I said rape was "legitimate" and I'll sign off topix for good.

I don't know about "all of Obama's mistakes", but President Bush validated many of the subsequent Obama policies with his own socialism light. Bush Spent eight years going back to the big government well over and over again in his quest of a Rovian "sustainable Republican majority", with his airline bailout, Medicare Part D, NCLB, Patriot Act, gutting the Freedom to Farm Act, TARP, etc. Even the mortgage crisis, which he in theory tried to head off in advance, was something that he had no trouble touting before the National Urban League in a shameful grasp for political gain. President Bush demonstrated in "Decision Points" (his memoirs) that he wants capitalim without risks and chugged down the "To Big to Fail" kool aid. I'm tempted to say that he doesn't understand capitalism, but his betrayal of the free market means that it's probably more accurate to say that he understands it quite well but his own political capital is more precious to him than a thriving American economy. The GOP seldom fails to beat the drum for economic freedom, but it also keeps nominating candidates (Nixon, Bush 41, Dole, Bush 43, McCain, Romney) who only want free enetrprise when it serves their own political interests or those of their cronies. But why not give the American people atrue alternative to socialism, rather than a just a Big Brother who is only a little less fat?

I agree with one point.....many women have attempted to embezzle money from men especially rich athletes and movie stars by claiming rape...when it was consentual sex.

I'm no fan of President Obama, but he IS Kenyan -- by ethnicity. He has also referred to himself as Irish, which he is on his mother's side. Clinton is Anglo-Saxon, McKinley was Scottish, the Roosevelts were Dutch, Eisenhower was German. If Romney had won, we could have called him our first Mexican president (depending on how you defdine "Mexican".)
There is plenty to criticize in the Obama presidency without resorting to the Kenyan line.(BTW, some people say that he's actually Indonesian.) He's an incompetent president , but you're not going to get two-thirds of Congress to remove him for that, even if the GOP wins big in the 2014 off-year elections.

I do not believe he was born in the U.S.A. His own grandmother said that he wasn't born in the U.S.A., and that she was present at his birth. Why wold she lie about that ?

Thank you both for your service. Unfortunately when I was eligible it was illegal for me to serve (Pre DADTDP). I hope both of you came back with all your parts.

As for the stuff about Bush I have to agree with you on that point.

As for the Health Care for America Plan, I've always been suspect of people calling it a failure when it hasn't even gone into full effect. To me that's like saying the umbrella is broken before you even try to open it. I suspect part of the reason the pharmacists don't like it is because it limits the mark up they can legally apply to their services.

I often shop at Walgreens but will never fill a prescription there. They have one of the highest mark ups on drug costs of the major chains. Some are over 1000%!

Can you imagine my medical costs if I paid them for my HIV meds as opposed to a not for profit pharmacy like AHF.

Under the law if your parent is a citizen you are too. Didn't you ever wonder why you never had to take the Immigration and naturalization test?

But then you're the guy who keeps saying Bush vs Gore says there is no constitutional right to vote when it in fact endorses it as I have already demonstrated.

So when it comes to legal questions I'll rely on them instead of you. Your track records sucks.

No actually I'm more of a Goldwater Republican than I am a democrat.

And I was wrong to do what I did. It was deceitful and unkind and I regretted it as soon as I took my finger off the send button.

Also I'm sorry I forgot you are not female.

I know all this sounds hollow but I do mean it.

And yes I agree about the false rape claims. It's no wonder many of them ask for signed consent forms now! But let us remember these women all claim to come from "good families". I suspect the religious hypocrisy running rampant today is as appalling to you as it is to me.

Really? Then PLEASE tell all of us here how a child can occur without a Mother and father involved in it's birth.

And let's not forget the favorite subject of "Original intent". What DID they mean when they wrote all citizens?

I await your further pasture pudding posts.
