I realize many friends don't talk about Religion and Politics as these are difficult topics. But I feel we all need to be aware of what the candidates stands for or against. I don't mind if you feel abortion is wrong for YOU. This is America and you have that choice. But I feel strongly that it is a personal choice and I should not have a say in what a woman may feel she needs to do. I would rather her have a safe place and support if she chooses to have an abortion verses going to back alley unlicensed "clinics". If "God" finds it wrong, when we die we will know. Until then I would rather provide safety for women who makes these choices. And sadly John McCain is trying to take that choice away. I am standing up here to say "I can't vote for you because of this."

"I do not support Roe versus Wade. It should be overturned." - Senator John McCain, 2-10-2007

Planned Parenthood provides health care and education to five million women, men, and teens in the United States and abroad every year. That's why the Planned Parenthood Action Fund is especially concerned about John McCain's record on reproductive health issues.

Here’s what you should know about John McCain:

· AGAINST Roe v. Wade-1

· AGAINST comprehensive, medically-accurate sex education-2

· AGAINST requiring health care plans to cover birth control-3

· AGAINST funding international family planning-4

· AGAINST funding to reduce unintended and teen pregnancies-5

· AGAINST funding for public education on emergency contraception-6

· AGAINST restoring family planning services for low-income women-7

I also support the death penalty and Same Sex marriage too, in case people want to know. I am not PC at all. I am me.

Hundreds of Same Sex Couples Share Vows Across California

Updated: June 17, 2008 02:37 PM PDT

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Serenaded by a gay men's chorus, showered
with rose petals and toasted with champagne, hundreds of tearful
same-sex couples got married across the state Tuesday in what some
are calling California's new Summer of Love.

Wearing everything from T-shirts to tuxedos and lavish gowns,
they rushed down to county clerks' offices to obtain marriage
licenses and exchange vows on the first full day that gay marriage
became legal in California by order of the state's highest court.
They were joined by jubilant crowds that came to witness the event.

George Takei, who played Sulu on the original "Star Trek,"
beamed as he and his partner of 21 years, Brad Altman, obtained one
of the new gender-neutral marriage licenses - with the words
"Party A" and "Party B" instead of "bride" and "groom" - at
the West Hollywood City Hall. They are planning a September

"I see before me people who personify love and commitment," a
grinning Takei told the crowd. He flashed the Vulcan hand salute
from "Star Trek" and, in a twist on the Vulcan greeting from the
TV series, said: "May equality live long and prosper."

Appeals court, judge refuse to stop gay weddings

Associated Press - June 17, 2008 6:54 PM ET

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Attempts by conservative opponents to halt same-sex marriage in California before the November election failed today when both a state appeals court and a Sacramento trial judge refused to block local officials from issuing marriage licenses to gay couples.

Sacramento Superior Court Judge Patrick Marlette refused to grant a temporary restraining order sought on technical grounds by five supervisors from Yuba, Stanislaus, Nevada and Sutter counties.

Earlier today, a state appeals court also refused to block the same-sex weddings until after voters consider a constitutional amendment in November that would again limit marriage to a man and a woman.
rosered32: (Believe in your idea)
Here is a link to an article that feels Same Sex marriage leads to more children born out of wedlock and opens the door to polygamy and perhaps “consensual” incest.


So is this really how people feel? Do they honestly believe that if we all went back to every one in the closet, no one getting access to birth control and only the Judeo-Christian value system, things would be better?

I agree morals have changed. But to hide verses see the reality just seems unrealistic. I mean I read of same sex couples wedding after 21+ years of being together. How is that bad?

PLEASE some one who is not for this issue, give me your honest view. I may not agree with you, but I want to know. And if you don't feel this way, don't try to explain it to me. I want some one who is against this to speak from their heart. I can guess why people are against this issue. I have read a bunch, but truly I want to hear from a person who is against this so I can hear them, not the propaganda of their party(unless they are spouting it.)

Don't believe the Hype- Public Enemy

Caught you lookin' for the same thing
It's a new thing check out this I bring
Uh Oh the roll below the level
'Cause I'm livin' low next to the bass C'mon
Turn up the radio
They claim that I'm a criminal
By now I wonder how
Some people never know
The enemy could be their friend guardian
I'm not a hooligan
I rock the party and
Clear all the madness, I'm not a racist
Preach to teach to all
'Cause some they never had this
Number one, not born to run
About the gun...
I wasn't licensed to have one
The minute they see me, fear me
I'm the epitome - a public enemy
Used, abused without clues
I refused to blow a fuse
They even had it on the news
Don't believe the hype...

Was the start of my last jam
So here it is again, another def jam
But since I gave you all a little something
That we knew you lacked
They still consider me a new jack
All the critics you can hang'em
I'll hold the rope
But they hope to the pope
And pray it ain't dope
The follower of Farrakhan
Don't tell me that you understand
Until you hear the man
The book of the new school rap game
Writers treat me like Coltrane, insane
Yes to them, but to me I'm a different kind
We're brothers of the same mind, unblind
Caught in the middle and
Not surrenderin'
I don't rhyme for the sake of of riddlin'
Some claim that I'm a smuggler
Some say I never heard of 'ya
A rap burgler, false media
We don't need it do we?
It's fake that's what it be to 'ya, dig me?
Don't believe the hype...

Don't believe the hype - its a sequel
As an equal, can I get this through to you
My 98's boomin' with a trunk of funk
All the jealous punks can't stop the dunk
Comin' from the school of hard knocks
Some perpetrate, they drink Clorox
Attack the black, cause I know they lack exact
The cold facts, and still they try to Xerox
Leader of the new school, uncool
Never played the fool, just made the rules
Remember there's a need to get alarmed
Again I said I was a timebomb
In the daytime the radio's scared of me
'Cause I'm mad, plus I'm the enemy
They can't c'mon and play with me in primetime
'Cause I know the time, plus I'm gettin' mine
I get on the mix late in the night
They know I'm livin' right, so here go the mike, sike
Before I let it go, don't rush my show
You try to reach and grab and get elbowed
Word to herb, yo if you can't swing this
Just a little bit of the taste of the bass for you
As you get up and dance at the LQ
When some deny it, defy if I swing bolos
Then they clear the lane I go solo
The meaning of all of that
Some media is the whack
You believe it's true, it blows me through the roof
Suckers, liars get me a shovel
Some writers I know are damn devils
For them I say don't believe the hype
Yo Chuck, they must be on a pipe, right?
Their pens and pads I'll snatch
'Cause I've had it
I'm not an addict fiendin' for static
I'll see their tape recoreder and grab it
No, you can't have it back silly rabbit
I'm going' to my media assassin
Harry Allen, I gotta ask him
Yo Harry, you're a writer, are we that type?
Don't believe the hype
I got flavor and all those things you know
Yeah boy, part two bum rush and show
Yo Griff, get the green black red and
Gold down countdown to Armageddon
-88 you wait the S1Ws will
Rock the hard jams - treat it like a seminar
Teach the bourgeoise, and rock the boulevard
Some sau I'm negative
But they're not positive
But what I got to give...
The media says this
