The details teeter on the absurd.

Not really. You guys are just really square in addition to looking for something to biatch about.

I'm sure there are organizations that stand for worse that have donated to either campaign--evangelical organizations for example, stand for much worse than dudes dancing in their undies.

Max Awesome: Hey, handsome sweaty muscled exhibitionists with great rhythm and giant meaty schlongs stuffed into barely-there thongs deserve representation... err... something.

I seem to have forgotten the point I was trying to make.


Great rhythm? What gogo boys have you been watching and where can I go to watch?

/Most gogo boys have as much rhythm as that one drunk uncle at your wedding.
//Wishes gogo boys had more rhythm.

Headso: canyoneer: Has that led to a decrease in abortions?

That's the spirit in which the laws were passed.

It seems to me a great deal of political emotion and energy is being expended to no purpose by both sides.

Except that like a dozen red states have passed laws attacking abortion rights in the past 2 years... The people who are ok with legalized abortion are not the ones constantly "bringing it up", I'd be perfectly happy never to hear about it as a topic again if it remains legal and accessible.


I'd be happy to never hear about it as a topic again if it is made illegal and inaccessible.
You can't please all the people all the time, so instead you just get whining and biatching, I guess.

canyoneer: Headso: except that in the past couple years like a dozen red states have passed laws attacking abortion rights.

Has that led to a decrease in abortions? Or, as the CDC posits, is it RU486 that has led to the decrease in surgical abortions? It seems to me a great deal of political emotion and energy is being expended to no purpose by both sides. Let's argue about guns while we're at it. It's a lot easier than actually taking the difficult decisions that will solve the significant problems facing our country.

Meanwhile, the statute of limitations clock is running, and it looks like the con men of Wall Street are going to skate. The foot-dragging has worked like a charm.

Keep that laser-like focus on the big issues of our day, Headso. The Fark Democratic Committee© is doing a fine job, as usual. And the Republicans are wasting our time blabbering about this stuff while Rome burns.


Because everyone knows it's the Democrats who want to obscure any progress on prosecuting wrongdoing from the 2008-9 collapse in favor of social legislation favored by religious leaders. The major success of the Occupy Wall Street movement was is getting all those bankers freed up to protest abortion clinics.

canyoneer: The SCOTUS decided on abortion years and years ago. This "war on women" stuff is complete fluff. The right wing nuts can no more repeal abortion rights than the left wing nuts can survive without "Big Oil." The dross that passes for political debate in this country is such bullsh*t.


Because a new SCOTUS couldn't reverse a previous SCOTUS decision, right? That never happens, right Plessy?

It isn't fluff, and abortion rights is one of the issues that needs constant vigilance. Ever since Nixon figured out it could be used as a wedge issue to drive Democrats apart it has been one of the more divisive issues of our time. Those of us who support the right of a woman to choose must attempt to fight every time that right is restricted.

Meanwhile, the GOP looks for opportunities to provide employment for male strippers/prostitutes:

And yet, over the last year Republicans across the country have been pushing for laws that at best make getting an abortion extremely difficult and at worse treat women like they're in The Handmaid's Tale. Lest you forget the legally mandated transvaginal ultrasound thing a few months ago.

Absolutely right, I'm not just a gorgeous, muscular hunk of manliness for people to lust over.

Specifically, I'm not gorgeous, muscular, particularly manly or a frequent object of lust. But I can hope!
