That its ironic
only if you consider the foetus to be living. i don't have an opinion on that right now, so don't ask. haven't really looked into it--it's not an issue that comes up a lot in international politics.
Generally speaking that would seem to be the case.
actually, neoliberals are all for globalization. not the liberals you mean, though.
btw, i'm against the extension of federal power. it's already to unwieldy, why increase it? oh, and i'm a liberal.
You think that Iran and North Korea have been trying to get hold of nuclear weaponry because of the invasion of Iraq? I'm not seeing the correlation. Can you connect the dots for me?
sure. what's the best time to steal from the cookie jar? when mom's busy scolding your brother and not able to either catch/punish you.
we're tied up in Iraq. why do you think we set a second carrier group to the gulf? because Iran definitely thinks we're busy in Iraq, and can't punish Iran. If we weren't in Iran, sending the second carrier group wouldn't be necessary.
As to the DPRK, looks like they may have been after increasing levels of aid--but then, it's easier to get that when your enemy is busy fighting someone else and can't afford a fight with you.
By the Federal Government though?
butter vs. bullets. I prefer butter. besides, what agency has the reach (and money) to aid art like the feds?
I think the point is that one doesn't make sense without the other. If gender roles are artificial then wouldn't that extend to homosexuality as well?
no. gender roles are the "male bread winner" and the "female homemaker". we put them into place. it's not exactly natural--go back in history, way back when we lived in small groups, and there was a more even and egalitarian split in duties. hell, you can still see that with some Nat. Am. tribes.
homosexuality is just as natural as heterosexuality. most likely. I haven't heard if they determined whether or not our DNA is invovled. however, our DNA is definitely not involved in making women homemakers and men breadwinners.
Call me old fashion, but I think schools should be going to an actual education. Its the job of parents to teach their kids about sex, not some fruitloop that I didn't give permission to
correct me if I'm wrong, but you have to sign a permission slip saying whether or not you want your kid in sex ed class. At least, you did in my school system. can't remember if it was to remove the kid or permit the kid, though. point is--your kid isn't forced to take sex ed by some "fruitloop".
i'd argue, though, that sex ed is just as real, and important education as the rest. fun fact (and funny)--the one school system in colorado that teaches abstinence only sex ed is the same school system with the highest rate of teen pregnancy in this state. oops.
Just everything else associated with Jesus then
a time and place for everything. you know, the ACLU has defended the rights of christians to display manger scenes (and to not play basketball on sunday). I don't care if you display a manger scene, esp. if it's on your property. if not on your property, though, like, say, public property, could you at least include all the other relavent religions?

Re: Answering the critics
you know, my sex ed classes were very similar. we were also taught about STDs (symptoms, cures)
I wonder, does NJ have kids?
