After reading about 30 or 40% of the posts in this thread, I have come to some conclusions; first, there are an awful lot of people on A.net who could care less about "personal responsibility". The big "bru-haha" over abortion has been raging ever since I can remember, ( and I can remember longer than most, if not all of you ), and it still isn't solved, and it probably never will be solved. So arguing about abortion is kinda like "beating a dead horse"..........it's also an "exercise in futility" !
Let's look at the REAL problem here.........

So, the facilitation of underage sex trafficking by a national organization that receives public funding should just be overlooked and swept under the rug. Right.
THAT is the problem............here we have a national organization, RECEIVING TAX PAYER'S DOLLARS, passing out information as to how best to break the law. A lot of you think Planned Parenthood is a great thing, doing great work, etc etc etc. So send them YOUR damned money ! If you think sticking knives in unborn babies is "O.K.", ( and all liberals think it is O.K. ), then PAY for it ! But just like Acorn, you want EVERYONE to help foot the bill, every time some young "hottie" can't keep her legs together and gets knocked up, you want ME to help pay for it ! And every other law abiding citizen who hasn't broken a law in 25 years. That's the whole problem with the liberal view point.......you could care less about the irresponsible people who are creating all the problems, but when they cause the problems, ( like unwanted pregnancies ), you want EVERYONE ELSE to pay the bill !
Taking tax money from law abiding citizens and giving it to non-law abiding "schmucks" IS
Here's a great idea that will make some of you "cringe"..............if you are male, and you get ANYONE knocked up, you have two choices......you PAY for it......or you go to jail ! If you are female.......you better have some insurance, because the TAXPAYERS are sick and tired of paying for your "mistakes"; and if you make mistake #2.........the "system" will take surgical steps to preclude the possibility of a #3 "mistake". Now, in just one short paragraph, we have practically solved this country's whole economic problems ! ( Later on we'll solve the big dope problem )
I read one post from a guy who is a lawyer..........sounds like he thinks everyone hates lawyers. I sure don't hate lawyers. As long as they are honest, hard working, pay their fair share......I have no problem with lawyers. But, I'm sure you will have to agree with me..........the vast majority of lawyers tend to be very liberal; I don't see a lot of lawyers championing "personal responsibility", do you ? Of course there are exceptions.......Clarence Thomas comes to mind; he started out as a lawyer, and he believes in personal responsibility.
I really haven't paid a whole lot of attention to this big flap over PPH, but then I didn't have much use for them to start with.
Everyone on A.net has two things in common........you all like airplanes, and you all have an opinion. That's great; everyone should have an opinion. But remember this: we all have a different "point of view", which depends on our circumstances. Everyone's circumstances are different. Some are young, just starting out; many are "established" and making great incomes, ( and paying lots of taxes I'm sure ) And a few are "beyond" our big-money years, and just "enjoying life", ( and believe it or not, it really IS
enjoyable when you don't have to go to work every day ) The problem is, most people tend to see life from THEIR perspective. I have to tell you something........this isn't an opinion.....this is a hard cold FACT..........YOU are not going to be young forever! YOU are not going to have the same "viewpoint" 40 years from now ! YOU are going to feel pretty much like I do, after you pay taxes for 45 years or so, and some "creep" wants YOU to help pay for all the problems created by all the irresponsible, lazy, dope heads who want to make a career out of "having fun" ( getting women knocked up ) and expecting YOU to help pay the bill ! That's a promise !
I guarantee it !
So get over this PPH BS
; start thinking about something "important"...........like maybe how in the hell we can get some decent half-time entertainment at the Super Bowl for a change.............
