    And regarding the women's reproductive issues?


    There are some women who are incapable of being responsible on this topic......


    I worked with some gals who would make copies and walk away from a jammed machine, leave staples and paperclips on the counter, use White Out and smear it on the glass or refuse to fill up an empty paper tray.

    This quiz falls into both religious & political catagories. I scored 6 out of 10. It's hard to tell much difference in thoughts.

    Notice, that the National Weather Service and NOAA are part of the government...

    Who is in charge of the government?

    Here's some political trivia.

    No president has ever won without Ohio.

    Voter fraud is relatively rare, politician fraud is rampant.

    Sometimes first place is the first loser.

    Politicians never lie, read my lips....

    I love the news

    Always a good source of humor, especially the headlines on Drudge.

    Read the headline (Non-Union electrical crews turned away from helping NJ).....

    Then read the story.

    The reality was nothing of the sort.

    The really morbidly amusing part is all the drudge feed commenters' hyperventilation about the headline as opposed to the story.
    The one eyed man in the kingdom of the blind wasn't king, he was stoned for seeing light.

    My journalism teacher always made the newbies write headlines BEFORE we were able to write for the paper.
    God help ya if you didn't read the story and make the headline pertinent to the content.

    ----------------------

    That is why I love the idiots that quote 'blogs' as the god honest truth......I do enjoy the 'fresh faced' faces that show up on the news programs that write the blogs.

    Again, they have barely figured out how to clean themselves after a BM and that makes them well qualified to read other blogs, rewrite and regurgitate the same story, with their own spin on it.

    I was watching TV last night and one entire commercial break was election ads for the different Congressional races, and they are so nasty. Four in a row. Grrrfffrrfrrf. I'll be very glad when this election is over.
    I've been Boo'd ... right off the stage!

    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    Saw this post on Twitter a couple of hours ago

    To my American friends: On Sunday, don't forget to set your clocks back one hour. On Tuesday, try not to set your country back 50 years.

    Actually life 50 years ago wasn't all that bad!!! I was there!!! The American Dream was still alive and obtainable by anyone willing to work hard for it. Now only certain people seem able to achieve it.

    Everyone could practice their faith or leave it alone as they chose without anyone 'being offended'.

    You learned early that life wasn't always fair, you didn't have to wait until you were grown up to be blind sided by that fact. If you wanted something, you worked for it, you didn't expect it to be handed to you.

    Wages weren't all that high but then the cost of living wasn't high either. Most families could get by very well on only one income.

    Most people weren't in debt up to their eyeballs.

    The government didn't stick it's nose into your business like it does today. Pay your taxes and mind your own business and you were ok.

    Presidential elections were based on the canidates GOOD qualities. Now they are just down right MEAN, and NASTY and a lot of time, not true.

    Of course, there were some things we needed to desperatly fix, like equality for African Americans and other minorities. Those are still works in progress on certain levels.

    I was there too. Do you know the marginal tax rate for the highest earners was over 90% compared to 35% today. Capital gains tax was 25% compared to 15% today.

    You mention minorities but what about women? It was legal - and very common to pay women less than men for the same job. And of course, women were not hired in many jobs. The only job Sandra Day O'Connor could get as a top graduate from Stanford Law School was as a legal secretary. Teachers had to leave the classroom when their pregnancy began to show and flight attendants had to be young, skinny and single - or they lost their job. Even when I was out of college - the newspapers advertised "help wanted - male" and "help wanted - female."

    Polio was just beginning to be eliminated. I was six when the vaccine first came out. Just think of the medical advances since then!

    It is easy to remember the good times when you look back - but there are many, many things that are better today!

    When i started teaching, some of those teachers that "broke ground" were still teaching. They were allowed to continue teaching because a suitable replacement couldn't be found.

    A good friend was a geologist that couldn't find a job except with the gov't. The signs on the doors said "women need not apply". This was the early 60s.
