Re: “Have Some Fun and Help Planned Parenthood Fight for Your Rights

A fundraiser for Planned Parenthood that is being promoted as "Family Friendly?"

That takes a whole lot of chutzpah! Because as we all know not everybody winds up with a family.

Re: “Are Vouchers Bad For Students Who Use Them?

So you are saying that failing public schools are failing because of low income students? And then to top it off the public schools are fixing grades?

Re: “Sex Language

The logic of this article escapes me. It seems to be comparing contemporary slang English with "traditional Chinese". First, "traditional Chinese" is undefined: "Chinese" is not a language, but a family of languages. The article never states which Chinese language was used for translations. It seems unlikely that all Chinese languages use the same terms to refer to sex. If "traditional Chinese" means "classical Chinese", which is indeed used to refer to a single language, then it seems preposterous to compare words used in classical literary Chinese with contemporary English slang.

Moreover, it is surprising these days to find an article that is unaware, or ignores, the obvious fact that perception of vulgarity is subjective: based on social and personal tastes. The terms the author finds poetic might be offensive to others, while terms like "cock" and "pussy" - which are simply animal metaphors, based on physical appearance - do not bring to my mind the violent negative connotations mentioned here.

Try this experiment: learn a few slang Cantonese sex terms, then ask a Cantonese-speaking journalist if those words are vulgar or melodic - you may be surprised.

Re: “Political Theater: McSally Schedules Town Hall Just in Time To Scramble Critics

How about the fact the the home ownership rate was low because Bush's buddies threw millions out of their homes when they couldn't find jobs... seriously, economic recovery was better under W? That's when he and his pals took the entire world economy down. And Gahdaffi was a mistake? What about the longest running war ever that Obama inherited from Cheney and the gang? And that other little war that was actually justified... in Afghanistan... and who took out Georde Sr's buddy, Bin Laden? with actual police work instead of invading two more countries that were not connected... your hatred of Obama is irrational, based on the facts...

If you are having trouble connecting with the email address link, you're not alone. The correct email address is arizona@marijuanasites.org, I'm pretty sure.

I notice you couldn't defend Obummer with any facts. All you know how to do is hide behind a dozen fake names and insult people,
. Big whoop.

That's according to the U.S. Dept. of the Treasury, but what do they know? Whether or not it was more than all U.S. presidents combined is a moot point. He did what he did. At least you had the cojones to challenge me,

He didnt add more to the debt than all the past presidents combined if you adjust the debt increases by every president for inflation. You cant logically compare spending in the single thousands of dollars spent 200 years ago to today.

Re: “What To Do If ICE Comes To Your Door

I think this information is helpful, but "Fight Back" and a fist is a really bad choice of language and iconography to use when you're creating a flyer for someone who is almost certainly not English as a first language, and likely nor familiar with US history and the use of such icons.

It should show something suggesting litigation or justice, perhaps simply the scales of justice of even the statue of liberty. Put differently, it should focus on taking this situation to court, and getting representation.

That's all we need is someone who is stressed and misinterprets this to mean literally fight. That will not help them in any way and could even result in an incident that makes this situation worse for everyone.

Simple question. What's wrong with entering the country legally?
