I know Jake I was being extremely sarcastic lolJune 25, 2022 at 8:56 am #43444
I live in a state where nothing will likely be changed. But I got to thinking – what if I lived in the most strict state on abortion and I got pregnant? For me it would impact me because I don’t want another baby. I had complications with my first one and it wouldn’t likely be safe for me. Plus I’m 40 years old. I wouldn’t want to carry through with it for my own sake and my son’s sake. I would adopt kids all day long if I could, but it seems to me if they are going to force women to have children they don’t want, they should force all citizens to become foster parents. Themselves included. And you should be forced to take in as many children as your income would allow. Supreme Court judges could probably afford at least 20 kids. What do you think?June 24, 2022 at 3:34 pm #43417
It was also made clear that contraception, marriage equality and IVF are also going to be challenged
did they say that when it was being overturned? What does gay marriage and abortion have anything to do with each other? Lol… Except for maybe gay marriages are more likely to adopt? So what are they going to do about all the gay people that are already married?June 18, 2022 at 4:08 am #43362
@unseen our democracy is already over. It’s been over. We are no longer the country we once were and never will be again. I have been saying it since Trump was nominee. The only solution that I see honestly is to get the hell out of this country. Back away slowly and never come back. I prefer to be elsewhere. The only complication that has stopped me is having a kid that is school-age. Moving out of the country would not be in the best interest for his sake. But as soon as I am able trust me… I am out of here! LolJune 16, 2022 at 7:01 pm #43354
I’m just amazed at how many stupid people there are in this country. Trump only has power because the people who follow him give him that power. If everybody saw him for the criminal he is, and were angry enough to want to punish him the way he deserves, this question wouldn’t even be an issue. Of course the answer would be he needs to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Why in the world would we do anything different?June 15, 2022 at 12:56 am #43344
@Reg omg the Bible is real!!!! 😂 😂 😂June 13, 2022 at 10:50 pm #43327
Do you still smoke it and if so do you still consider yourself addicted? If you don’t think you are addicted now (which I think is the case) then what has changed?
I don’t smoke anymore (except when my ex-Mormon friend came into town recently and wanted to try weed for the first time 🙂
If I started regularly smoking weed again I would very quickly become addicted again. Nothing has changed. I’m not a “take it or leave it” type of person 😂….hooray for those who can be like that! I most definitely am not one of them.

Did you find the withdrawal process painful? If you consume some now do you end up plotting to rob pizza delivery vans of all their pizzas and desserts?
IMHO that’s a very narrow and incomplete view of what addiction is. Just because I’m not writhing in pain or committing a crime – doesn’t mean I wasn’t seriously addicted- I was. I’m not saying marijuana is bad. I LOVE smoking weed! But there was a time in my life I was seriously addicted to it. If I’m not careful I could easily be again.June 12, 2022 at 9:13 am #43298
@Reg I have been a regular user of weed for about 40 years. I have never known anyone to be addicted to it.
I most DEFINITELY was! 😂
The CNN video makes some good points that should be difficult to argue against. When fully trained and war hardened Marines have to adhere to stricter gun restrictions than untrained 18 year olds you have to ask “Is this really a developed country?
Not anymore!!!!!! We’re a third world country with shiny streets.

Quick aside: my son’s school went on lockdown just days after the Uvalde shootings. My son and the entire school was “escorted to their parents or bus,” past school hours. They were kept inside while police “investigated.”
I saw a video today of an ex marine proposing a very practical solution to the gun problem. I think we need men like him running this country. Not the dumbasses we currently have.May 6, 2022 at 7:09 am #42832

RE article: Why are Republicans so obsessed with your gender?
I read somewhere that in order to protest this, there’s a school district somewhere that sent out a letter to parents basically saying (loosely paraphrased) “since gender is something we cannot discuss and we must treat every person fairly, as to not fall into any controversy and to make sure we are following the law that gender is not to be discussed, going forward we are referring to EVERYONE regardless of their gender as “they/them.”
I just about died laughing! 😂 so brilliant!May 5, 2022 at 7:51 am #42815
The Evangelical movement represents that backward-looking worldview and they have quietly been working on taking over the government and installing their value system.
That is 100% true. When I was a Christian I used to listen to Dr. James Dobson and they were ALWAYS talking about wanting to over turn Roe v. Wade and this was…over a decade ago now and probably way longer than that!!!!May 5, 2022 at 7:47 am #42814
While Mexico is passing more and more liberal legislation, states are banning the teaching of slavery brutality, abortions, discussing the fact that gay people exist and penalising corporations that disagree with their policies.
I just want to live somewhere in peace where I can blend in and be left alone. Mexico or New Mexico are the only viable options for me. I don’t like a lot of what goes on in Mexico either but right now I just want to get out of the US. I’ve also thought of other Latin American countries, Costa Rica is up there as a possibility, we’ll see.
Despite that, the US is still hardly a “dysfunctional state”. While some Europeans would say it is, I call that a gross overgeneralisation.
Can you explain what you mean by that? Um….the US is a shit show right now. I’m hoping European countries might start taking in US citizens on asylum visas. It’s getting bad.
