I hoped someone would raise that. To this day religions don't promote contraception and the Catholics still forbid it. So, if it is against your religion, what about all those women who use contraception then continue to disobey God laws and attend church at the same time? How does that fit with your God?

Your tired traditional religious view of protection it pathetic. Imagine some devout family giving approval for a 16 year old girl for contraceptives. They wouldn't want their precious little girl enjoying sex like they do. So pregnancy will come soon and thats where you hypocrits come in. Most parents never discuss sex with children until the pregnancy arrives because they are too embarrassed. Ring any bells son?

The only possible way to stop overpopulation with unwanted children is to allow liberation of women and stop making them feel guilty because some filthy God disagrees with it and the likes of you peddle that shit.

Mother Theresa was never a friend of the poor. She was a friend of poverty while ever she advocated no contraception because of her filthy religion.

It's about now you realise the hypocrisy you practise in the name of your hideous religious beliefs. American God botherers are Olympics standards in hypocrisy.
You attempt to take your beliefs from the bible into the womb with no right or permission. I doubt it mentions that action in the bible but you think you have authority to from god to speak on his behalf. It's all bullshit and you should keep your rosaries off their ovaries.

I never once mentioned anything about religion, did I? So why are you bringing that into the conversation? But since you decided to bring it up, there is no way you're going to convince me that the 800,000 or so abortions we have every year is because people are following their religion, because if people were really following their religion, they wouldn't be having sex at all until after marriage. You must be living in 1950 or something.

Most abortions are out of laziness and irresponsibility. Abortion promotes that by making it so easy to get rid of a fetus. If people couldn't get an abortion in this country, they would take the necessary precautions to make sure there was no pregnancy to begin with.

A 45 million dollar investigation that was paid for in full. Not by taxpayers. Thanks Paul Manafort!

So who paid for it?

Uh...this a trick question? :)

As for this from the OP:
I will remind Dimocrats of this:


1. Labor Union Leader Roseann Demoro​

The national vice president of the AFL-CIO wrote an article for Salon in which she explained how the Democratic Party primary was “rigged from the start.”

She explained the debate times, media bias, and vote rigging were what kept Bernie Sanders from clinching the Democratic nomination for president. Demoro also claimed Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid met with casino owners where many caucuses were being held, in order to tamper with the election process.


“The Nevada caucuses were then rigged with massive voting irregularities such as casino owners orchestrating which workers would be allowed to vote and, in clear intimidation, openly monitoring how they voted,” she wrote.

2. NYU Professor Mark Crispin Miller​

This New York University professor has taught several courses and authored several books claiming that George W. Bush’s presidential victories in 2000 and again in 2004 were the result of large-scale fraud.

After John Kerry lost the 2004 presidential election, Miller told Democracy Now! that the Democratic nominee said the election was stolen from him.

“[Kerry] told me he now thinks the election was stolen,” Miller said. “He says he doesn’t believe he is the person that can be out in front because of the sour grapes question. But he said he believes it was stolen.”


His book “Loser Take All: Election Fraud and The Subversion of Democracy, 2000 – 2008” explains how Republicans were going to try to steal the 2008 election away from Obama. Here’s a synopsis of the book:

Among the subjects treated here are: myth of George Bush’s victory in Florida in 2000, and FOX News’s key role in propagating it; Senator Max Cleland’s dubious defeat in Georgia in 2002; Bush’s ‘re-election’ in 2004, including evidence of systematic fraud outside of Ohio; startling evidence of fraud committed in the 2006 midterm elections, which the Democrats appear to have won by a far larger margin than officially reported; and, crucially, evidence that the Republicans will attempt to steal the presidential election in 2008.
In a PBS interview from 2008, Miller explained that voting machines can’t be trusted because the companies that make them have close ties to Republican candidates.

“The use of this kind of voting apparatus is extremely worrisome and something that we should be watching very carefully,” he said.

Amusingly, the title of his 2005 book: “Fooled Again: How the Right Stole the 2004 Election & Why They’ll Steal the Next One Too (Unless We Stop Them)” appears to have been changed to simply “Fooled Again: The Real Case For Election Reform.” The apparent change seems to imply that his fears of the elections being stolen in favor of the GOP were invalidated by Obama’s 2008 victory.

3. Vox’s Ezra Klein​


In 2014, Klein wrote a piece explaining that the election process is skewed in favor of incumbent candidates. Once in office, candidates often get to have a say in where the electoral lines are drawn — which means they can gerrymander their way into staying in office.

“A new Rasmussen poll finds that 68 percent of Americans think elections are rigged in favor of incumbents,” he wrote. “And they’re basically right. . . Few congressional elections are seriously competitive. Reelection rates for incumbents tend to hover around 90 percent.”

4. Vox’s Dara Lind​

Lind wrote a piece today entitled “A short history of white people rigging elections,” in which she explains how white people intimidated black people by acting violently towards them at the polls.

“Let’s be clear: Rigged elections have happened in American history,” she writes. “But the people who’ve most often rigged elections aren’t liberal elites acting in cahoots with nonwhite shock troops — they’re white supremacists trying to maintain white power in the face of a diverse electorate.”

She’s not wrong — poll taxes, “literacy tests,” and other methods were often employed to disenfranchise black people, but her assertion that it never happens in other circumstances is . . . interesting.

What’s ironic is the publication has taken strides to dismiss Trump’s claims that the election process is rigged, publishing a piece today entitled “I’m a Republican lawyer, here’s why the election can’t be rigged.”

Logan Dobbs put it best here:

Today on VOX:
The Election Can't Be Rigged!

5. Politico‘s Ben Wofford​

In August, Wofford wrote a piece explaining how the election could be hacked in seven minutes. The piece focuses on a professor who bought an $82 voting machine and hacked with it so he could manipulate results.

“In American politics, an onlooker might observe that hacking an election has been less of a threat than a tradition,” he writes, citing Huey Long’s infamous rigging in 1932, and the 1948 “Lyndon Landslide” during which Lyndon B. Johnson “mysteriously overcame a 20,000 vote deficit in his first Senate race.”

6. Talking Points Memo’s Josh Marshall​

In 2006, Marshall accused the Ohio secretary of State of helping to steal the 2004 election in favor of Bush. Now, he says Trump’s claims of election-rigging are “disgusting.”




7. Salon’s Farhad Manjoo​

“Was the New Hampshire vote stolen?” Manjoo asked of the 2008 New Hampshire primary Clinton unexpectedly won.

In recent years several factors — 1) crazily hackable voting machines, 2) generally heightened partisanship, 3) very close races, and 4) a real, honest-to-goodness purloined race (see Bush v. Gore) — have raised the paranoid in all of us. Wondering if any election outcome is honest has become a standard post-election emotion; not wondering, now that’s just crazy.
Manjoo concluded his piece by saying that even if we fixed our voting machines, it still wouldn’t make elections fair.

8. Sen. Elizabeth Warren​

Today, Warren chided Trump on Twitter:




In 2013, however, Warren went on the Senate floor to chastise Republicans for making “naked attempts to nullify the results of the last presidential election. To force us to govern as though President Obama hadn’t won the 2012 election.” At the time, she conveniently seems to have forgotten that Republicans in Congress had also won an electoral mandate through their own re-elections. Unless she was implying Republican lawmakers’ re-elections were fraudulent despite being conducted by the same process as Obama’s re-election.

As John Gibbs wrote, voter fraud is very much a real thing. According to a 2012 Pew Charitable Trust report, roughly 18 million voter registrations are either “significantly inaccurate” or invalid — enough to tip an election. Yet somehow when Donald Trump echoes the concerns about election integrity many Americans have had for years, it’s totally insane. I guess election-rigging only matters when Democrats lose.

June 12, authorities have arrested one person in connection with the mass shooting overnight in downtown Austin, Texas, that left 14 people injured. This was the ninth mass shooting in Texas this year.

On April 4, four people were injured in a Beaumont shooting during a parking lot disturbance.

In north Texas, six members of the same family were killed on April 5 in a murder-suicide plot, according to the Allen Police Department.

Four people were injured at a San Antonio apartment complex on March 28 in a shooting involving at least two teens and three different weapons.

In Houston, five people were shot at a nightclub on the North Freeway on March 20.

On the same night as the North Freeway shooting, seven people were shot at a Dallas bar,

In Austin, four people were shot by a pair of gunmen outside a barber shop on March 12.

The first mass shooting in Texas of the year happened in Houston on March 11, according to the Gun Violence Archive. Gunmen shot four people, killing three of them in a southwest Houston apartment complex parking lot.


In Texas, "lawmakers approved a bill that would allow people to carry handguns without a license, background check and training. Governor Greg Abbott has said he will sign it despite objections," The Guardian.

Republicans want Americans to enjoy all of their freedoms.

With the exception of the freedom to life.

We are reentering an Age of Darkness most notable for the death of reason. Symptoms abound. But why?

Author suggests: (quotes in italics)
  • Death of reason - “70% of Republicans believe the election was stolen, [America] a land where fundamentalist religion has poisoned culture and bigotry and hate has rendered politics a fools game.”
  • Consolidation of wealth into a few elites and the death of the middle class/ working class - “The wealth of billionaires increased by about 50% during the pandemic. Think about that for a second. The world’s handful of richest people grew unimaginably wealthier while millions of people were dying.”
  • Democracy is under assault - “Trumpism in America, Modi’s fanatical religious supremacism in India, Britain’s fervid, idiotic Brexit nationalism, and so on. Even in Canada and Europe, fanatical right wing movements have made significant inroads towards destabilising society.”
  • Neo-fascism is flourishing - “The bargain of modernity is not working out very well for working classes. Fascism is about purity of blood, the idea that some people are subhuman, and some superhuman. Below them come the subhumans, whose bloodlines are tainted by violence, laziness, stupidity, and so forth.”
  • The world regressed not progressed. - “All our efforts to make a fairer, better, nobler world — they stalled, and went into reverse, and all that happened before the pandemic.”

Yeah we are returning to the dark ages alright because Biden stole the election and got the war machine serving the elite who want to destroy America so yeah we are indeed returning to the dark again.

Where's you latest evidence he stole the election? How about decisions from the authorities that prove it was stolen?
Got anything like that?
Of course not. All you have is a deranged mind controlling a big angry mouth. You are low IQ and assume all your derision of me will stop me posting or prove your point. Sorry mate. You've got nothing.
Arizona will have the proof shortly. Apparently there are enough ballots missing to decertify the election. Sit tight dummy.
I’m gonna have to say.. nope.

Gallup polls conducted after the 2000 election show almost a third of Al Gore voters refused to accept Bush as the legitimate president just one month before his inauguration, and an overwhelming majority of Democrats refused to say Bush had won fairly.


That rate rose to 50 percent among African-American voters. 49 percent of Democrats said Bush “Won on a technicality.” Just 18 percent of Democrats said that Bush “won fair and square.”

English not your first language?

Would you like to refute my claims? I can always tell when the opposition is out of ammo. Out come the unwarranted personal slurs and consistently come from the peanut gallery?

Can you check my spelling please? English is not my first language.
Not so smart now ay?

Dimocrats believed Bush stole the 2000 AND the 2004 election, as well as the 2016 election.


John Kerry helped George Bush steal the 2004 election, not the Russians, the Greens or Wikileaks​

Conservatives’ fear, ignorance, and stupidity.

The reactionary right’s unwarranted hostility toward positive, beneficial change, diversity, inclusion, and expressions of individual liberty.
fear ignorance ?? which of 2 hundred thousand genders dems believe in do you identify as ?
Conservatives seek to drag America into a Dark Age of ignorance, fear, and stupidity.

The right’s response to the pandemic is proof of that – conservatives’ reprehensible attempt to downplay the severity of the crisis, the right’s unwarranted hostility to wearing masks, and their ridiculous, idiotic lies about, and resistance to, the vaccine are but a few examples.



Not wearing masks, not social distancing and not getting vaccinated will allow natural selection to do it's job.
You got it, a disease with a 99.7% survival rate will really thin the herd. You idiot.
Exactly,NOW he’s catching on. :up:

Since we've already had a guy stand up and suggest imbibing disinfectants and sticking UV lights where the sun don't shine as treatments for a virus, and where vaccines are shunned..I'm waiting for the inevitable "well, leeches will work wonders!".
It is amazing how many people in this country are pliable and malleable enough to believe there was a massive conspiracy to steal an election. It's a plot straight out of the TV series..Scandal! :)

Yet you still believe that Russia stole it from Hillary....
Russia stole it from Hillery but no election fraud happened against trump,comedy gold. :rofl: :laughing0301: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:
