BBC NEWS | Americas | Pill propelled into abortion debate
Topic: Current Events 5:17 pm EDT, Sep 15, 2004

] "They've done so much with outlawing and restricting
] access to abortion that they've set their sights on birth
] control because there's nothing else really they can do
] to further restrict abortion here in Wisconsin," Ms Boyce
] says.
] "Which is counter-intuitive because if you're against
] abortion in the least you'd think you would see the value
] in enhancing access birth control, the very means women
] look to preventing pregnancy and the need for abortion."

People are for the most part stupid. I find that when you talk to them - the really gung ho 'save the babies' ones...most of them aren't EVEN against choice - they just don't have firm beliefs so they spout whatever shit it is their preacher tells them to spout.

Puntin uses school attacks to cripple democracy in Russia.
Topic: Current Events 9:51 am EDT, Sep 15, 2004

Umn, like the Bush administration didn't go in the same direction after 911? Hell, Bush wasn't elected by popular vote BEFORE 911.

] Among Putin's reforms announced Monday: the country's 89
] regional governors will no longer be elected by popular
] vote. Instead, he will appoint them and regional
] assemblies would approve the appointments.
] He also announced on Monday that seats in the Duma
] (Russia's national parliament) allocated to single-member
] constituencies will be replaced with a fully proportional
] system. The move "could see the few remaining independent
] voices forced out of the federal parliament"

Puppy shoots man
Topic: Current Events 8:31 am EDT, Sep  9, 2004

The man was trying to shoot puppies in the head after being unable to find homes for them.

They were placed with the local animal shelter where they will be up for adoption.

The man was charged with felony animal cruelty.

Ok, I don't like to think about shooting puppies either, but I'm wondering....exactly how is what the man was doing that different from what the animal shelter will do?

If they don't find a home for them, they will euthanize them. That's a nice way of saying "kill them." Its maybe just not as messy as a shot in the head, but just as deadly.

Most of the hostages are 1st and 2nd graders - 50 to be killed at a time .....
Topic: Current Events 2:13 pm EDT, Sep  1, 2004

the hostages have threatened "for every destroyed fighter, they will kill 50 children and for every injured fighter - 20 (children),"
****I would go postal if I thought my child was being held like this.
About 17 militants, men and women, stormed the three-story building and herded captives into the gymnasium. They forced children to stand at the windows and warned they would blow up the school if police intervened, said Alexei Polyansky, a police spokesman for southern Russia.

Bike arrests begin after someone throws spagetti at cop

I think the thing people should pay attention to with the protests - is not even whether or not it helps Bush or Kerry - but the protests will help us clearly see just how far the US has come in turning into a police state.

I don't understand why no one talks about police brutality and prison abuse RIGHT HERE at home.

RE: Marriage is over
Topic: Current Events 10:04 am EDT, Aug  7, 2004

Sometimes the majority is wrong but that doesn't make something right. Segregation, for instance.

I think the constitution is very clear. If you leave religion out of this, and embrace REASON, its very clear. Let people marry each other if they want to. It would make people happy, help the economy, and provide more security for people. I wonder how some of the opponents to gay marriage would feel if THEY were denied visitation to their dying mates?

I don't care what WORD is used, marriage, civil unions, whatever - but in order to protect folks that happen to be gay, something needs to be done. They suffer injustice every day because their primary relationships are in no way acknowledged by the government...cutting off their access to government and legal protections.

Its NOT right.

ALA welcomes Department of Justice decision to rescind destruction request
Topic: Current Events 8:36 am EDT, Aug  6, 2004

I have profound respect for the ALA in light of recent political events. I'm glad they are around and have their eyes open for the rest of us. I did not know about this. -K.

The American Library Association (ALA) today welcomed the Department of Justice's decision to rescind its request that the Government Printing Office Superintendent of Documents instruct depository libraries to destroy all copies of five Department of Justice publications addressing forfeiture. The Justice Department claimed that the documents are "training materials and other materials that the Department of Justice staff did not feel were appropriate for external use." ALA disagreed with this categorization of the public documents, two of which are texts of federal statutes, and with the instruction to destroy them. ALA trusts that there will be no repetition of such unjustified instructions to destroy government information.

This is a fairly questionable decision.
