Rape is rape to Americans except Republicans and they think there is a different between rape and legitimate rape. Yes Akin and Ryan are in agreement totally and wrote a bill together.

It is vital that we prepare our children and grand children for the reduced opportunities and reduced personal freedoms as outlined in the Pelosi Doctrine. It will be beyond cruel to not to lower their expectations for any sort of quality out comes if we are unable to defeat Obama in November.

Yawn, just more leftist blather slung around to try to distract from the very real problems facing America and the fact that Obama, the failed has been president, has NOTHING to run on other than attacks on the Republicans. Look at the line up of speakers for the Dem. Convention, Starting with the ex-law school student who's only claim to fame is that she wants us to pay for her sex life. Wow, a sterling line up of speakers will be following her with their pitches for free birth control, taxpayer paid abortion on demand and a whole host of other freebies the dependent democratic women seen to be unable and incapable of doing for themselves, just a long line of JULIA'S asking for the government to take care of them.

If rethugs win prepare your children for a lifetime of low wage jobs with no health insurance. It is the rethugs that are advocating less personal freedom!

Statutory rape is consentual sex with a minor.

Like an 18 year old boy having sex with his seventeen year old girlfriend is considered to be rape.

Which is a heck of a lot difference between non-consentual sex, which is truly horrific, yet also called rape.

So once again why did Ryan flip-flop and say rape is rape when questioned about the issue?

You can answer your own questions by asking yourself,'when is rape NOT rape?'

And you will have your answer.

I agree with YOU. A man should be able to make a baby with whomever he wants. Our forefathers believed women were property of men.

I LOVE Condi. When she spoke, it reminded me of when she and George W. Bush were incharge. Things were great then. Anyone know why Bush isn't scheduled to speak at the RNC?

Condi also reminds me of 9-11 and how great it was for our nation to come together united with Bush and all the great things he did for America.

Bush was the greatest American president ever, when you think about it.

Bush was a businessman AND very religious, even though he wasn't a true Christian, like the Mormons. Bishop Rmoney is a businessman AND a Bishop.

I prefer a Mormon president because he can be both a president AND be elevated to the job of pope for us.

On the positive side, when Bishop Rmoney and Paul Ryan are elected, we will enforce States rights and segregate the blacks and whites again.
