Re: Corona Virus

I was told if I got the vaccine a mask is no longer required. Now I'm being told I have to wear one to protect the people who refuse to vaccinate. Nope. This sentiment seems to be gaining ground as the socially-responsible ones who "took one for the team", thus taking a risk themselves for the sake...

Re: Corona Virus

ncidentally I have a mole on my upper arm that I thought might be a melanoma. I have been to see my GP and she doesn't think it is but has taken photos of it to send of to a dermatologist for a second opinion. Knowing that melanomas can kill if not caught early enough it was a wake up call to my mo...

Re: Corona Virus

Check out https://www.sorryantivaxxer.com/ A commonality of all these poor sods is a complete inability to determine real information from bogus stuff on FB and the like. Another common thread is religion (for similar reasons). See Tom, That's why I write long post regarding my thoughts on matters....

Re: Pressing the "HOT" button

You know, a little quick internet searching and perhaps for those who wish to sway the pro-life crowd, you could pose one simple question: "How do you propose to stop abortion?" If a woman wants one bad enough, she'll find a way. "Which do you prefer, the hand of a trained practitioner, or a coat ha...

Re: Pressing the "HOT" button

Moon you said something a while back that seems so true and I think of it often. You basically said if it wasn't for liberals then conservatives would not have anywhere that served liquor by the drink on Sundays. I also think you are on to something about "divide and conquer". That's true. I'm not ...

Abingdon Virginia

Shell gas station on Porterfield Highway (edge of town)

Just saw a tall black man wearing a long (almost dragging the floor) caftan.

Cool!

Re: Pressing the "HOT" button

The take on all this is that you tend to only have an opinion on this when you are in a position where it becomes an issue. That is when you, or someone close to you, is pregnant and in a position where going to term and bringing up the child would be difficult. So that is probably why most of us, ...

Re: Pressing the "HOT" button

What is someone's vested interest in seeing that a woman cannot get an abortion? Why are they involved at all? I really don't think it's that. I think that's what the [left] wing media paints rural voters as, but in my observation, rural voters have no issue with women's rights. These people aren't...

Re: Pressing the "HOT" button

I understand what your saying Brad. But I'll ask you to consider my perspective on this, not as someone who is loosely considered "pro-life" but from a political calculation. Rural regions, and my region in particular used to be HEAVILLY Democratic. In my conversations with local voters one thing is...

Re: Pressing the "HOT" button

Moon I would like your thoughts on my comment. I saw your comment and planned to make a comment, but as this thread started to get going, I got called into work. I plan to attend to it when I get home this evening (assuming I get home at a good hour, yours is a lot to unpack and I'm wanting to be o...

Re: Pressing the "HOT" button

My attitude is we should do all we can to reduce them, and the best way to do that is Protect vulnerable girls and women. Institute thorough and freely available sex education. Provide birth control for free or at low cost, including the morning after pill when you make a mistake or suffer rape. Ed...

Re: Pressing the "HOT" button

Now do I think they [abortions] should be banned or encouraged? Encouraged? Please tell me that was a slip of the tongue. I think everyone knows what I meant. The word I was looking for may have even "legalized". Sometimes my brain thinks one thing and my hands write something else... Good thing I'...

Re: Pressing the "HOT" button

... if someone is anti-abortion, don't have one, but don't try to decide what others should do. That is the key point. Why is abortion the most important issue of all of politics? The abortion is the reason a few people get worked up, but far more people get worked up when those few assume that the...

Re: Pressing the "HOT" button

You spend an awful lot of time typing long posts &c into your computer, Moon Each to their own. Tom 'Bout a half hour. I've wasted more time on sillier things. But considering and/or discussing the philosophy of life is never time wasted. And complex subjects can not be discussed with one liners. I...

Pressing the "HOT" button

Mods, Forgive me but this is the most center/left place I'm aware of and I'd like to pose some serious, gentlemanly questions about this issue. Given my the location of my domicile, and the people in my local orbit, I often only get one side of this debate. After reading the Tennessee bully thread, ...
