Amy,

You really must get over this obsession with this guy. He's just doing a good PR job.

Besides......who reads anything in the Rockbridge Weakly beyond checking to see if anybody you know got arrested?

And, of course, making sure I'm not in the obituaries.

You are probably right. And yes, the pleasure I derive from seeing my name not in the obituaries seems only to grow with time.

Kudos to Mr. Harwood and The Advocate on their most recent issue that takes representatives in Richmond to task over their focus on divisive social issues. The Letter From the Editor is outstanding. I deeply appreciate the article outlining the co-patronage of bills introduced in this session of the General Assembly.

Thank you Mr. Harwood for holding their feet to the fire. A real journalist doing his job is wonderful sight to behold.

...rape vs making love...

Postby Crux » 2012 Mar 07 12:05

An image of one's child is a picture worth 1,000 words, and might be an educational eye-opener. :baby:

As to the editorial, when referring to a TVU as "rape", the analogy could be carried forward.

The abortion, which involves a TVC (trans vaginal cannula) would then have to be referred to as, "making love".

Hardly Mr. Harwood. :nono:

Thank you, crux, for that splendid example of incoherency.

The difference between rape and making love involves the element of consent, I would imagine.

The third circumstance which is that to which you disingenuously refer is called Medicine!

So.....the next time one of your hypocritical jackoff republican buddies likens health care reform to "coming between a doctor and a patient" he should be questioned as to exactly what he means by "coming" prior to his receiving a giant rectal probe with a Saguaro Cactus.

No crux!

It's not an either-or proposition. There are lots of consensual things that go on down there that constitute neither rape nor making love.

Either you already know that and are simply advancing a nonsensical argument for niusence sake, or you have no knowledge whatsoever of female nether regions in which case you should stick to mischaracterizing economic issues and governmental policies.

The big question is: "Why the obsession with the female reproductive system?" Sounds like somebody didn't get breast fed!

'dog,

Postby Crux » 2012 Mar 09 17:41

Your disrespect and insults aside, I was responding to the praise of the editorial in the Advocate, which referred to a TVU as a "RAPE". I am merely being critical of the analogy as put forward, and praised on this forum. I am simply sarcastically being critical. I have made my point and am satisfied with the outcome. I will not insult you further, apparently, by being so levelheaded.

You are just the perfect progressive man. :hello2: Thanks for your tolerance and bravery...

It is funny how you and the "wise" dude leap about and spin!

Disagreement noted

Postby Coondog » 2012 Mar 12 12:13

Presumably your disagreement with the Advocate article revolves around this statement: "......forcing something into a person's most private parts is rape."

As I see it, the key element here is the term "force" which, again pertains to the concept of consent. Whether that consent involves medical appropriatness or just plain fun is of little consequence.

As I understand your perspective, cramming something into YOU against your will and without your consent would NOT constitute rape. I wonder what you WOULD call it? Making Love?

Planned Parenthood abortion services information hotline:

Patients who have a surgical abortion generally come in for two appointments. At the first visit we do a health assessment, perform all the necessary lab work, and do an ultrasound. This visit generally takes about an hour. At the second visit, the procedure takes place. This visit takes about an hour as well. For out of town patients for whom it would be difficult to make two trips to our office, we’re able to schedule both the initial appointment and the procedure on the same day.

Medical abortions generally require three visits. At the first visit, we do a health assessment, perform all the necessary lab work, and do an ultrasound. This visit takes about an hour. At the second visit, the physician gives the first pill and directions for taking two more pills at home. The third visit is required during which you will have an exam and another ultrasound.”

So What?

Postby Coondog » 2012 Mar 13 12:45

You still don't get it and probably never will.

Conservatives blather about Health Care Reform placing beaurocrats between doctors and patients (which it doesn't), but when it comes to their favorite obsession, government overreach is not an issue.

With regard to the invasive type of ultrasounds without consent, the question is moot in VA.....much to the chagrin of legislators who pander to fundamentalist religious moralists and of would-be Vice Presidential nominees. The puritanism remains.

When, how and whether or not a medical proceedure is necessary is a decision for the professionals involved, not bible-thumping fruitcakes like McDonnell and his mentors at the Christian Broadcasting College of Hypocracy.

on the subject of Republican overreach into medicine was wonderful. View the entire 6 day series, March 12-17.

It's hard-hitting and hilarious.

So, BUCK, Al Sharpton=Democrat Party=Al Sharpton? Grow up as you grow old my friend... The ISSUE of a President through the head of HHS DECREEING that all PRIVATE health insurance companies provide "FREE contraception with no co-pay" is pathetic. Admit it and move on.

Haven't been on in a long time, and no I didn't slink away with my tail between my legs. My son has been very sick and we weren't sure if he was going to make it.

But had to say that all democrates are all a crazed bunch of malevolent nut jobs and richly deserve political obscurity. May I also add that Bill Mahar made some very crude comments on numerous occasions on Sarah Palin and no one has castigated him.

Welcome back to the fray, Sam. And hopefully, things are better in your realm.

I'm surprised, but glad, to find out that you watch Bill Mahar.

That may or may not legitimize your opinion of liberals. I know that 5 minutes of watching Fox News does wonders for reinforcing my opinion of conservatives. Individually, they're tolerable. As a group.....not so much!
