At this point, I'm not sure if there is anything left to be said.

Take a single pile of sand and add it to another pile of sand. How many piles of sand do you have now after adding them together? 1+1=1.

Science!

I'm all for banning abortion actually. It kills an innocent living human with unique DNA. It's never necessary.

That I have a problem with. As for banning birth control? That's crazy shit you dumb libs have come up with. You think it's a ban because a bunch of Catholic nuns didn't want to be forced to pay for the birth control of a bunch of whores. Yeah how dare those evil nuns?

Projection and lies on their part.

Democrats and Planned Parenthood DO NOT WANT BIRTH CONTROL AVAILABLE OVER THE COUNTER. Who does? REPUBLICANS.

Quote:
Republicans, in fact, have repeatedly tried to make birth control pills available without a prescription, only to face opposition from . . . Democrats and Planned Parenthood.

Yes, you heard that right. Democrats — and Planned Parenthood — have fought against making it easier for women to get birth control pills. Why? Well, they have their reasons.

In Planned Parenthood’s case, it’s probably, according to Hadley Heath Manning writing in Forbes, because they’d make less money. “Planned Parenthood’s stance on expanding access to birth control may be illogical in light of their mission statement, but it is perfectly logical when you consider the group’s financial interests.” Planned Parenthood brings in 1.7 billion dollars in revenue annually according to it's latest financial report and contraception accounts for 27% of the services they provide.

Planned Parenthood is also a big donor to Democrats, who have worked to block over-the-counter birth control pills. And Democrats have fought hard, partly because they — and drug companies — want birth control pills to be subject to health insurance reimbursement, though only the more privileged among Americans get that.
Birth control over the counter would be cheap as hell, but PP makes money off of cockblocking you from obtaining it, and Dems are all for that.

Hilarious. Song of the year.

I don't know what this has to do with anything, and why I feel compelled to post it here now, but I stumbled upon this, and is funny too:

Just another reminder that there is a significant portion of the left that, when it comes down to it, doesn't want equality. It wants vengeance in reaction to some historical offense, either real or imagined. True equality is not what they want. It kind of reminds me of this quote:
Quote:

And holy shit, did they really state that males are incapable of happiness? I thought that was a defining feature of modern American women.

EDIT: I had to look up the quote. Apparently it was written by Valerie Solanas. The first line of her Wikipedia entry is pretty funny in a way.
Quote:
Valerie Jean Solanas (April 9, 1936 – April 25, 1988) was an American radical feminist and author best known for writing the SCUM Manifesto, which she self-published in 1967, and attempting to murder Andy Warhol in 1968.
I was going to ask if there are people out there who actually take her seriously but I guess I have to sadly admit that I already know the answer to that.

She's the lunatic who left Warhol forced to wear a surgical corset until his death in order to hold his organs in place.

She is SCUM.

I browsed her bio.

Had a crappy life, made bad choices, super smart bro, but not smart enough to see that her choices caused her shit life. Yes, she had a bad childhood, so shes a product of her environment but at some point she chose her philosophy.

Go to school, learn big worlds, try to talk women into exterminating men!

This is why i do not engage with leftist. They don't care about a dialog, just winning, they are all spoiled brats.

I have a couple people like this in my life. I'm perfectly content with them thinking im a moron, they also show their hand out of frustration when you play stupid.

There are some who are well meaning enough but the road to hell and all that. But the vast majority of even the well meaning ones in my life are too tribal to not resort to ad hominem relatively quickly. And I'm reasonable enough to admit that many on the right have that same tribalism. But, for what it's worth, those that I know who do dabble in real philosophy all fall on the very conservative side of things.

To illustrate the point:



Course the right also has their own echo chambers.

Compared to the left? The right doesn't have echo chambers, they allow dissenting opinion, something the left does not. For all their cries of fascism, those on the left are actual fascists.

As an aside, as much as I don't believe in man made climate change I do believe we need to clean our shit up. There is way too much pollution, particularly in the form of plastic floating around in our oceans, that does harm the ecosystem. Same with the rising amount of mercury in seafood.

These are a direct result of the amount of pollution we put into our environment. While the world may not end because open water Tuna becomes poisonous to consume or because plastic begins starve out more and more miles of ocean we (humans) most certainly are responsible for any repercussions from this.

It certainly isn't a problem to be solved with carbon indulgences and ending reliance on fossil fuels.

Depends. There are plenty of sacred cows on the right, just look at some of the threads here. Holocaust denial, ethnocentric debates, and anti-semitic rants and stomped on pretty quick.

Maybe there are (many orders of magnitude fewer) but he in glass houses and so on...
