Matt has a couple of beers = 5 games suspension.
Another NFL'er beats up girlfriend, knocks her unconscious, on tape = 2 game suspension.
NFL says "Beat up the ladies but don't you dare quaff a brew. We have integrity here."
Maybe we should bring back Freddy "the Hammer" Williamson to knock some sense into the NFL brass.
Dan K, a fertilized egg that has not implanted, which is often the case anyway, is not an embryo. Therefore, it is not an abortion. It's a contraception. And none of you are addressing the fact that HL covered all those contraception methods for years before deciding to challenge the law. Why now?
For those of you that called me a "liar":
There are many top GOP congressmen saying climate change and human influence is "biggest hoax on mankind", and 97% of scientists surveyed say differently. Fact!
There are about 15 or so states, mostly red ones, presently trying to cut down voter participation with the reason of voter fraud although the facts aren't there. Fact!
There a many conservatives, maybe not totally Republican, that think you can change a gay person's sexual orientation. BS. Fact!
There are busloads of GOPers that wanted Obama to jump into every middle east conflict in the last 5 years even though nobody in their right mind knew who to back. Certainly not the love-pair McCain and his boyfriend. Fact!
For those who called me an "idiot", for maybe saying the SC came up with a new definition of pregnancy and contraception:
The 4 contraception choices that are now off the list, are not abortifacients. They keep an egg from being fertilized or keep a fertilized egg from implanting, which most don't implant anyway. Neither of those are considered abortions. Pregnancy is an implanted fertilized egg. Where the SC went wrong is going with Hobby Lobby in their incorrect definitions of pregnancy and abortion or contraception. And, a big AND it is, HL covered those items for years before they decided to back out of their responsibility. They still cover Viagra and vasectomies. But women are much easier targets.
I don't really care if you call me an idiot but a liar is a bit far. Especially, considering in the context, I'm neither.
Dan K---would you puleeease stop using facts that are confusing DanS? Provable facts v. ideological beliefs, should be quite a debate.
Thank you, Diane. I wish we could get our national Congress to get 1/2 of what you guys get done.
Mark H once called me an "idiot" for something I wrote. Did I take it personally? Well....yeah. Was I hurt? NO. If you look above, he agrees with me on something. Rare, but that's what discussion is about. Give and take. Keep it civil.
Hey Ken. Read my comment to Joe's letter. I give many stats on the voting and the turn out. Then you can conclude whatever you want, but it will have some more facts.
Mark, since several polls have shown that people who watch Fox News are less informed than people who watch no news and less than those who watch The Daily Show and The Colbert Report, maybe they should be ineligible to vote?
Before you get too excited, here are some numbers.
Va. 7th District :
475.000 registered voters
270,000 are Republicans
36,000 voted for Brat
It was an open primary. Both parties could vote, and some independent and Dems voted.
8.8% voted, meaning only 4.9% of the registered voters voted for Brat. Not sure if that is considered "tectonic", in Va. or especially across the U.S.
Thank you Jim K. That was the only point I'm making.
