Blind Patriotism Is Foolish

Joss_Whedon

I beleive that blind patriotism, like beleiving your country is the greatest when no evidence exists is a stupid, pointless waste of energy. This is because I think that no country can be "the best," due to the fact that I do not beleive countries are really anything other than arbitrary. A great example is Israel, because they really have no officiial borders, so everyone disagrees on where the border ends. "Maybe we should stop cutting maps up into sections and focus on the real problems," -pa...

Abortion

DanPeter
400spartans

Pro-life doesn't take away a women's choice.You commented, "It's the mom who gets to decide. She may not want to have a baby, for reasons unknown." as to why you are for abortion. Why should the mom decide whether the baby will live or die? It's certainly not the mothers choice once the baby has been born. It sounds a little harsh, but the mother can choose whether she wants a baby before she gets pregnant. Of course people often have "unplanned pregnancies" but we a...

Abortion is murder

werdna1999
Joss_Whedon

When a women has an abortion, she is removing only a clump of cells from her body ( I am opposed abortion after 6 months ). Should the government force her to birth what is technically a parasite in her body? Arguing that a fetus is a human and should receive basic human rights is a viable reason for not aborting, yet if you do believe that a fetus is a human, and thus with human rights, a fetus does not have the right to live inside another organism (just as any other human), nor does the fetus...

The US Should Lower Its Military Budget and Divert Those Funds to NASA and Education

Joss_Whedon
supersosa

The US spends way to much on its military as is. In fact, roughly 57% of the entire budget goes to military, 6% to education and 0.58% to NASA. It is little wonder then, that our education leaves us 24th in Math, 21st in Science and 31st in reading. Another unsurprising fact is that we now rely on Russia's Souyez program to get astronauts to the ISS. No offense to Russia, they are quite good at space programs, but we need to send our own people to space. This is imperative for not only now, but...
