TRANSLATION: I don`t give 12 year olds the permission to get an abortion without their parents consent.
I didn`t say a thing about social dependence, only biological dependence. So long as a person has finished developing it is no longer biologically dependent upon its mother and is acknowledged as a separate being.
"We should just start picking who to take rights away from, it`ll help society quite a lot, wouldn`t it."
I don`t happen to think humans had any rights to begin with, so enjoy the ones you do have.
"...but if people can`t take responsibility for their actions, what will be left of responsibility?"
What you`re describing is comparable to the government enforcing condom use for anything but reproductive sex because people cannot be trusted to be responsible with their bodies. I agree people are not as responsible as I`d like them to be, but that gives no right to the government to regulate their bodies.
and also, you were trying to say that because they were parasites, they have no human rights. So I guess we should give permission to people to kill retarded people, the infirmed, etc. I mean, hey, they`re being parasites, although not biologically, they`re still parasites, right? We should just start picking who to take rights away from, it`ll help society quite a lot, wouldn`t it.
I`m not saying abortions should be 100% illegal, women who are in danger or who were raped should be given a choice, but if people can`t take responsibility for their actions, what will be left of responsibility? When will humans learn to blame themselves?
Not technically true, but what`s your point? I`m not saying abortions should be permissible because fetuses are parasites; I merely stated that to support the notion fetuses are not independent people and should have no rights.
"So that means we should start killing the humans too if they`re causing any problems, or heck, if they just make your life worse."
Slippery slope fallacy, look it up.
neways.... no matter who gets elected... we are alll fudgeed
I`m so confused
it`s called the White House for a reason
Only because it *is* a parasitic relationship. I`m not twisting anything, see here. Keep in mind that only *half* of the fetus is of the mother. The other half is classified as foreign tissue.
I`ll come back and address your posts, caboose117. I have tutoring right now and will return this afternoon.
Face it, voting the independent candidate is about as useful as pissing in the rain.
And please for the love of god don`t buy into the stereotype that ALL politicians are corrupt, thats like saying all Americans are fat and stupid...
I was directing that whole comment on someone earlier, who said, among other things, that someone who didn`t speak English originally shouldn`t have the right to be president. THAT is being racist.
You make a lot of good points otherwise.
That`s all I`ll say, I don`t do political debates online.
And by the way, no one has a right to life before they`re born. Fetuses are living, sure, but they`re not independent. In fact, they`re parasites because they actually have to suppress the mother`s immune system in order to exist and thrive within the womb. That said, fetuses exist fully on the whim of the mother."
Well, on that note, aren`t all humans parasite of the world? Even worse, humans are like viruses. Parasites don`t intend to kill the host, but viruses just spread the filth until all nutrients are wiped out. So that means we should start killing the humans too if they`re causing any problems, or heck, if they just make your life worse.
and mrwnt has the right kinda idea.
uding intense misunderstood guilt.
Overmann the fact that you call pregnancy parasitic disturbs me. It`s called incubation and nurturing. The way you twist that is underhanded.
"And by the way, no one has a right to life before they`re born. Fetuses are living, sure, but they`re not independent." "That said, fetuses exist fully on the whim of the mother."
Did you know that most serial killers are driven by a power high by having the ability to spare or destroy someones life? It`s like being God for a moment, because the person existence is now in your hands. Your right fetuses do -continue- to exist on the whim of the mother, that is exactly why it is murder. She choose to destroy the life that was placed in her. Do you think she feels powerful? (Well actually most women who undergo abortion have a range of psychological problems afterwards incl
Garbage in, garbage out.
Also, quit dissing sheep. They`re tired of it. So are donkeys and female dogs.
"Here are a few reasons why I will vote for a Liberal: 1. I don`t think America needs any moral values! 2. I would love to allow gay marriages!"Right, because all Democrats are evil scum and gays aren`t really human(something with so many cooties must really be a monster >o!), so thus don`t deserve equal rights.
Although, I will say I`m glad I`m not old enough to vote quite yet, because looking at the likely lineup of candidates I doubt very highly that I`d vote for any of them. Besides, I`m already 90% certain Obama`s gonna win it, have been for months upon months ._.
You have freedom of speech (sortof) in the states. You have freedom of thought.
Unless you apply the second, the first is as worthless as the freedom to drool on yourself.
1) Your vote is wasted anyway if you don`t vote for who you want. Your vote is wasted anyway if you don`t vote.
That doesn`t mean it doesn`t matter that you vote. If you genuinely want a democrat in Texas, GET OUT THERE AND VOTE FOR HIM.
The democrats won`t win that year, but if more people have the same mindset, they might boost him a few % to 40% instead of 35% this year.
Next election maybe you`ll get it up to 40%, then 45%, and then you`ve turned Texas into a state with a choice.
The same could be said of independants/republicans. (Also, check each candidate as if they were independant, not all candidates are just their party label).
What I`m trying to convey is, quit bitching. We get enough of that. Yeah, you`re sick of the Man and you wanna stick it to the Democrats too, and you think Independents really mean independence. Blah blah blah. Come up with something better. Think of a solution. Maybe then, you`ll have something worth saying.
DON"T BELIEVE THE HYPE! The Dems control the media. They count on you to not dig any deeper that what you see on TV. You`d be surprised, no SHOCKED at how many half-truths and slanted spins are declared factual and newsworthy.
BE A RESPONSIBLE VOTER AND GET THE FACTS ABOUT THE ISSUES YOU CARE ABOUT BEFORE VOTING!!
IAB keeps hitting new lows, yet I keep visiting...
Until we develop some way of incubating fetuses from conception, women should still have control over their own bodies` reproductive organs and have the option to undergo an abortion or not.
And by the way, no one has a right to life before they`re born. Fetuses are living, sure, but they`re not independent. In fact, they`re parasites because they actually have to suppress the mother`s immune system in order to exist and thrive within the womb. That said, fetuses exist fully on the whim of the mother.
i hate politics. alot.earlier this year in my history class, we some how got on the topic of global warming. Someone asked the teacher what he thought about it and he said he didn`t really believe in it. Immediately, someone said "oh, you`re a republican, then.". And that`s exactly why i hate politics. Oh yeah, and turns out that teacher is actually a democrat. so...suck it.
(I get the satire)
And the only reason America is stuck with a 2-party system is only because of the way your election works, which naturally makes any third party a `spoiler` party. It`s not some big conspiracy, its just a terrible system that no one bothered to change.

Vote Jonathan Sharkey for Prez 2008Visit http://www.arabianmonkey.com/interviewwi... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jonathon_Sh... or search Youtube for Jonathan Sharkey for more information on where he stands on the big issues.
and by the way, do you have a left hand?
and minorities need to solve their own problems instead of bitching at the white man.
If you skipped that long paragraph and just read the beginning and the end, video=preachy, but kind of correct.
Why can`t we just accept that the few in power will always be corrupt so long as we allow them to be. We no longer defend our country against our own government, we just sit idly by while it rapes our land, our personal convictions, and our ideals.
Grow a pair and do your part: Vote.
- the dollar won`t be worth the paper it`s printed on- the US will be the most hated country in the world- China will be the only world superpower- Iraq will be in full-blown civil war, generating more "Islamofascists" every month than there are in the world today- oil will be $300 a barrel resulting in a global recession which will make the Wall Street crash look like a bad day at the markets.
Least of your worries will be who to vote for son.
how about because women shouldn`t have control over innocent babies` lives. What about the little kids? Don`t they have some sort of rights as a human being? How do people not understand that?
Almost all abortions have nothing to do with saving the mother. This means that almost all abortions are sickeningly selfish murders by the mothers of these poor babies. Take responsibility for your actions and at least let the kid live, even if it`s in foster care
Comic Book Store Guy: "Oh THAT`S a REALLY useful invention,"
::sarcasm detector explodes::
THEN STOP KILLING, RAPING, AND STEALING YOU F_CKING IDIOTS!!!!
Oh wait, of course, that doesn`t matter. Republicans and Democrats are identical. Give me a break."
Prosperity was helped greatly by Ragenomics and peace only means we aren`t helping out dozens of countries in need, or no large issues are happening. Just because the US is in peace, doesn`t mean the world is peachy keen. Look at Vietnam, we pulled out while we were winning. One of the most humiliating things, the media portraying a loss, causing us to retreat a winning war.
Sometimes the world makes me wonder. Was it ever better, or was it always like this?
Right. Because Kosovo and uh Somalia didn`t happen. That wasn`t "war" ...that was just...combat. We were liberators, not meddlers!
I`m not going to vote this year. You know why? Because government is one of the greatest perpetrators of evil and violator of personal rights, and I on`t want to be involved in choose the leader of evil. So I wont be voting. I disagree with our system more than I want him to win, so I`d rather see our system change. By voting I`m participating, and therefore helping the system exist.
So how do I change the system, you might ask. Well, there are hundreds of different ways to change the system, voting is not the only way.
Oh wait, of course, that doesn`t matter. Republicans and Democrats are identical. Give me a break.
"Here are a few reasons why I will vote for a Liberal: 1. I don`t think America needs any moral values! "
Heh... that sounds nice, i guess revenge and greed should run the world then.
we woulda been great with hillary as the prez, she can`t manage her campaign budget but i bet she would be wonderful with the nation`s budget.
Vote NObama 08!
Right, just look at all the examples of elected independent candidates who`ve screwed up.
Right on. Let`s vote for the same people. Because one day, one of them, will finally listen to my demands.
This makes me barf, and is disgusting. Democrats, Republicans, both are just as bad.
