I wish he'd hook himself up to an IV full of smart liquid.

Apparently, he portrays himself as some Russologist or some such nonsense.

If you change the subject of a discussion prematurely, you demonstrate a lack of interest in the discussion and indicate that what you have to say is more important.
Well, it is important, just by virtue of the fact that we changed the subject!

Former U.S. Sen. George Allen, a Virginia Republican who is running to return to the chamber, backs the “personhood” measure and would like to make it federal law. He isn’t saying whether he supports Virginia’s new law requiring women to undergo an ultrasound exam before having an abortion.
“He’s absolutely running away from it,” said former Republican Rep. Tom Davis, a Virginian who led his party’s campaign efforts in the House.“By refusing to say where you are, you almost get saddled with it anyway.”

Virginia lawmakers in Richmond delayed action on the “personhood” proposal after the women gathered on Feb. 23. Opponents, including Kaine, say the measure would outlaw abortion as well as forms of birth control, such as the pill, that work by preventing implantation of a fertilized egg.

I'm so tired of this woman's body thing. As a man, why shouldn't I have right to raise the child if she doesn't want it. My girlfriend is pregnant and doesn't want the child and wants the baby to die , I want the baby and want my baby to live. Why can't she just sign away rights and give me my baby, end of story, she doesn't have to be mom.
How is it right to allow a woman to make all the decisions for a baby created by two people. If she carried the baby to term an I didn't want nothing to do with it, the government says I have a financial responsibility to care for the child. A mans right should begin at conception.
