"If you're not liberal by 20, you have no heart. If you're not conservative by 40, you have no brain." ~Winston Churchill
I guess that means I'm heartless!
I'm a "Right Moderate Social Libertarian" who is pro-life, pro-gun, pro-death penalty, pro-Israel, and Roman Catholic. I believe in small, limited government. I've been called "racist," "homophobe," "anti-woman," "bigot," and "radical" by those on the left.
So if we have to show women what the baby looks like in their womb and tell them how the process works before allowing them to get an abortion, does that mean we should teach our soldiers about the culture of the lands we’re invading, and explain to them that the people we want…
Let’s be honest here, sure teach them about the culture: Iraq has a rich and vast culture, and they stone women who were raped
So if we have to show women what the baby looks like in their womb and tell them how the process works before allowing them to get an abortion, does that mean we should teach our soldiers about the culture of the lands we’re invading, and explain to them that the people we want them to kill have families and feel pain, just like Americans?
Does the possibility that the enemy may have a family outweigh the fact that they’re trying to kill you? Perhaps they should have realized that when they a nation’s sovereign people, said nation will retaliate?
Does an unborn child actively try to kill his/her mother? Of course not. Do enemy combatants actively try to kill Americans? Of course they do.
BREAKING: Seattle becomes the first city to raise its minimum wage to $15/hour. SHARE if Congress should take Seattle’s lead!
the current minimum wage (at least in NY) is $8.00 and less than a year ago it was $7.25, so yes.
Anyone with an elementary understanding of economics would know that this will lead to one of two things:
1. Layoffs and less hiring of new workers.
2. Raised prices.
Raising prices drives away customers, causing the business to lose money, and a business that can’t break even will go bankrupt. Therefore, raising prices is not an option. The only way to balance the increase in the minimum wage is to lay off excess labor.
Congratulations, Seattle. You’ve just forced businesses to close, lay off workers, or both.
I’ll just put this here…
Who said I couldn’t be heartless AND have a sense of humor?
Exactly. All this fuss over an imaginary “wage gap” is meaningless. It does no research into the underlying reasons why women generally earn less than men. (Hint: it all has to do with chosen career paths for men and women.)
If all of this happened over AMERICAN soil/waters. I can assure you that as soon as that plane went off course the Air Force would have IMMEDIATELY scrambled fighters to make that plane land by any means necessary. This is because we’ve seen first hand what happens when we let planes suddenly go off course without explanation.
Why would the Malaysian military simply allow the plane to continue flying off its predetermined flight path?
