On the flag issue, it's about respect. The flag is a representation of a country, and all it stands for, it should be treated with respect. Yes, it's "just a piece of material", but so are a shit ton of other things that we don't trash.

...much like a wedding ring represents marriage and all it stands for (or should stand for)

Also, Obama's ratings hit a new low... /sadface

Since I read 'politics', I'm just going to pop in and say what frustrates me.

The fact that Belgium doesn't have a federal government, but they can still declare war. What's up with that? /facepalm

Not surprised about Obama's ratings going low,we still have troops in Iraq,went into Afghanistan and now in the name of "humanitarian efforts" are making our way into Libya...without even talking to congress about it.Bahrain and Yemen amongst other countries have been asking for the U.S help and need for democracy but because Libya has oil it's at our best interest to be there.

Well Libya doesn't really have much oil at all, and Gaddaffi has declared all out war on it's citizens. Bahrain and Yemen haven't reached that point yet.

I think they did the right thing by going in there and stopping Gaddaffi from bombing his own people. They have the support of the Arab League if that means anything...

Nebraska: We don't want women to murder their babies. We just don't want to pay to keep wanted babies alive.

Sheesh. I still can't believe how backwards so many people are. That really does make NO fucking sense from either perspective. (If it hasn't been massively obvious by now, I'm pro-choice, but what I read there?) "You can't have an abortion for an unwanted or unhealthy pregnancy OR a healthy pregnancy/wanted baby..."

Naturally, I blame this on men being in charge of all the politics who have no bloody idea what women actually need and want.

What it sounds like to me is: women should never be able to terminate pregnancies that are damaging to them. AT THE SAME TIME, non-white, non-citizen women who want safe and healthy pregnancies don't deserve the same respect for their bodies or their children.

If I can say one thing for the Catholic church, at least they're consistent: all life, always, for everyone (except animals, which don't have souls and God doesn't give two craps about).

(Also, Catholic hospitals have sometimes refused abortion for women with life-threatening pregnancies; this has caused women to die, and in at least one case a dissenting nun was excommunicated for saving a pregnant woman's life.)

As was I. Which I didn't believe. Psh. I didn't believe ANYTHING they taught me in Catholic school. I found fault with all of it. Particularly the "If you enjoy life, it's a sin. If you ever think about your OWN needs and wishes, it's a sin. If you're human, it's a sin", crap.

I was told in catholic school that having premarital sex will lands you an STD. Not banging someone with one, just having sex before marriage.
