    Well I disagree with it simply because we need funding here for so many things, I don't see the point in donating to other nations social issues on that level.

    Obama would do himself well to understand that he cannot be the worlds keepers, while wanting more and more in this nation cared for by an already broke government.

    Honestly that goes for more than just Obama democrats and republicans alike.

    Not a surprise to anyone who listened. Doesn't make it right, but inevitable. Has to give his core 'something.'

    Do you understand the executive order they're talking about? The first executive order bush signed when he became president was to make teaching abstinence only a condition for giving funding. It's not that there will be more or less funding...it's that he never had any business putting such a stupid and ineffective precondition on money.

    I figured it would be the first thing or one of the first things Obama undoes. No surprises. And good on him.

    why are we giving money to other countries under any conditions for any reason? last i checked, we're broke.

    as for the mexico city rule, repubs put in and dems take it out for the same reason-as a sop to the people who think abortion is the only important issue.

    big fucking deal.

    not the only issue.... but certainly one that people need to let people make their own decisions about.

    knock yourself out.
    it'll do you as much good as it will me.
    i don't think it's a wise use of money to be funding birth control/family planning in east bumfuckistan no matter what conditions are or are not put upon the $$$.
    shoot me now.

    but the fact is that it does behoove us to fund such things. and seeing the agenda of religious groups inserted where it had no business being didn't make the funding any less or any greater... it only made it stupider and less effective.

    And yes, it will do me as much good as it will you. But no, I won't shoot you. I don't want to have to help break in a new mod. :lol:
