I'm SO glad Rick Santorum is concerned about my genitals and what I do with them in the privacy of my home. I mean if laws aren't made to stop me, who knows what I'll do!
Rick Santorum declares war on pornography: I will ban hardcore porn if I’m elected President
"America is suffering a pandemic of harm from pornography," the former Pennsylvania senator writes. "It contributes to misogyny and violence against women. It is a contributing factor to prostitution and sex trafficking."
He demands a crackdown on the distribution of hardcore pornography on the Internet, in addition to material on cable/satellite TV, hotel/motel TV, retail shops and through the mail.
The marijuana thing needs to happen anyways, not because it's cool for everyone to smoke pot, but because it already comes down to state law. For example California. Sure it's still federally illegal, but states have the right to pass their own law and the DEA doesn't want to get involved in that on a larger scale. So they let marijuana in California go basically unhindered.
The amount of money the federal government spends on wiping out pot is just ridiculous. 50,000$ fines and life in prison for marijuana just seems really excessive. I agree fines are probably the best way to go, it punishes the people and brings money back to the government but choosing either 50,000$ fine or life sentence is silly. Most people who smoke pot cannot afford to pay 50,000$ the ones that can are the big time drug dealers.
That is what all of the commercials for gold are saying. "It will never lose its value".
And they're right in that respect, unless we start MAKING gold somehow or something. All of our currency, used to be backed up in gold. Now it's just paper. Gold right now is just going for quite a bit more than what it's worth, silver on the other hand is still rising in price year by year. So if you buy it now, it's a safe bet you'll make a profit 5 years or so down the road.
Id advise anyone to put some money into silver and gold. There is a reason all these Cash4Gold sites and commercials have been popping up over the years, they realize how worthless the dollar is becoming so they're buying up all the gold.
Yeah. Instead of deciding how much planned parenting should get, it's become a matter of morality and ideology. It's pretty shitty. That's not the proper forum to express whether or not abortions should be legalized.
I say a new bill should be passed that says if congress can't agree on a budget plan before the last one lapses their pay checks will be cut also. That'll put a fire under their asses.
^^Mate, seriously....you are completely and utterly wrong. All you have to do is look south of your borders. Look at Central and South America. Look at the percentage of those populations that are fully native or part native. Any European nation would've done it? Sure. That's why North American natives are almost gone, while in places like, say, Brazil (a former colony of my own country), you can walk in any city and see a ton of people with native heritage. You can't just write walls of text about something of which you know nothing.
They speak Portuguese in Brazil, if that doesn't scream European influence I dunno what does.
Who's ready for government shutdown in 6 hours? :rolleyes:
