CHristine nailed it on the head as usual. Nadia seemed a bit tired tonight herself. :-( Still well spoken. Jenny gave an example of how to win a debate, and Adriana? I mentioned after her first appearance on your google hang out she seems stoned and out of it. I actually begged you not to invite her again because she cannot hold an intellectual candle to the other women you have had participate. I stand by my original assessment. Please leave Adriana to her bong next time. I still love you Lidsay!!! You sounded a little sick, hope you feel better and see you here next time. Hopefully without your resident happy hippy. ;-)


@Adriana, my ears are bleeding...since when is free birth control a basic human right?!?!  Freedom of religion is a much more fundamental human right, and to force citizens to fund something against their own religion is much greater crime against human rights.

@Nadia, the POTUS has three ways to control gas prices... 1) Releasing oil reserves, 2) their energy and foreign relations policies, and 3) keeping the economy healthy.

Men's. I to,d you she was stoned! Lol

And agreed on the gas prices comment. ;-)

^Chill out, Destiny. Just because someone isn't as aggressive and in-your-face as your beloved Jenny Erikson doesn't mean they're a pot-smoking hippy.

Oh, and by the way, Jenny Erikson, a $9 a month generic birth control pill from Walmart is not an adequate substitution for other forms of contraception some women may not be able to afford. When are you going to get off the "women-want-the-government-to-pay-for-their-birth-control-so-they -can have-lots-and-lots-of-sexxxxxx-zomg!!!!" kick, and realize that birth control is used for so much more than just preventing pregnancies! This includes lower risk of developing endometrial and ovarian cancer, lighter and less painful periods, endometriosis relief, and polycystic ovarian syndrome relief, to name a few.

But I understand why you want to defund Planned Parenthood. In ConservativeLand, Planned Parenthood is just a place filled with sluts who are only there to collect free slut pills and abortions, right?

Destiny - omg I thought it was just me! Lol. I think I actually started to get "The Magic Garden" flashbacks. Could swear I heard the chuckle patch.

Mens - I think she meant sex was a human right, not birth control.

Uhhh, MENSAmamma, pretty sure Adriana was referring to SEX being a basic human right, not birth control. So much for that whole Mensa thing...

Jkm - I think you've been listening to the liberal media for too long. I don't think anyone really cares why women take birth control. They don't want to pay for it regardless of why women are on it. Many believe that the federal government has no place or reason to be paying for contraception. Nobody is denying the many uses for birth control pills. Pulling funding from Planned Parenthood is a financial issue, not a morality issue. I don't see anyone saying that PP is filled with sluts, so screw them - we are removing funding. Its more like, while PP provides valuable services to women, we cannot afford to keep this funding in our budget.

Big difference


Well, right, that's what I meant.  Jenny was arguing that if you can't afford $9/month for birth control, then you obviously can't afford to have unprotected sex (because babies cost more than $9/month, it's arithmetic.)  Adrianna was arguing that it's a basic human right to have sex, whether you can afford birth control or not, so the government should pay for it.

As far as the Mensa thing, it kinda takes one to know one ;)

“He — he did call it an act of terror. It did as well take — it did as well take two weeks or so for the whole idea there being a riot out there about this tape to come out. You are correct about that,” Crowley said.

That is a direct quote for Nadia from Candy.  That is what was said today.  The President was asked if he called it an act of terror and he didn't.  You are saying that calling it an outrageous attack is the same as calling it a terror attack.  For a political blogger you don't know a lot about politics.  The administration purposely tried to mislead the American public.  They blamed it on a protest that they know for a fact did not happen.  You may not know that Nadia because the mainstream media acts like its new news.  Also Nadia when speaking about Romney's father what did you mean when you said "his father was born in Mexico to flee the United States."  I'm thinking you were tired and I'm right there with you but I don't know what that means.

HockeyMomNJ, you might be fooling yourself, but you certainly aren't fooling me. The majority of conservatives want Planned Parenthood defunded because of the nature of their business. It's been that way for quite some time. See Mensa's comment above about freedom of religion for proof. "We can't afford it" is just the newest excuse being used by conservatives crying for defunding, albeit a more convincing one, I'll give you that. But I think the government can find cuts elsewhere first (Inflated salaries? Ridiculous defense budgets?) before trying to take away from a useful and necessary program for low income women and men.

Mensa, I missed the part where Adriana said "it's a basic human right to have sex, whether you can afford birth control or not, so the government should pay for it". Oh wait, no I didn't, because that's not what she said. Adriana said sex is a human right. That's it. Prove the latter half of your claim or just admit you misunderstood. No big deal, it happens to all of us :)
