    My question has always been this: There’s this whole thing about abortion. But no one is willing to step up with daycare. Or the cost of healthcare. Or defund the military by a few million — against its trillions — to rebuild our public school system. You can’t save the children then forget about them. It’s not about being Christian; it’s code for racism and suppression of women.

     

    THANK YOU for saying that. I always ask this of Anti-Choice people, but they never give me a satisfactory answer.

      I am very tired and should be in bed, but I’m watching the aftermath of the VP debate. I’m reasonably certain I agree completely with everything you said, but let me respond in more detail after I get some sleep.

      The other thing that warrants mentioning is this: Anti-Choice is fine. Just as women didn’t want the right to vote, and fought against suffragists. I, myself, am PRO LIFE. I have a baby. I cannot imagine terminating a pregnancy. But I will FOREVER vote PRO-CHOICE. Why? Because it’s not my f’n place. It’s not my call. It’s frankly none of my GD business, and as a conservative (no true Scotsman fallacy, don’t even start me on the whole RINO blah blah blah) I am a HUGE supporter of individual liberty and an equally loud supporter of my right to make my own choices. So that’s the thing. 

       

      You don’t LOSE ANYTHING but giving someone ELSE a choice they very clearly need. I could go on like this for, frankly, hours. But you get the gist.

      My auto-biography is called “Saying the Quiet Part Out Loud: Why Everyone Should Speak Truth to Power.” On book shelves in 20 years or so after my daughter is grown up and moves out.

       

      Thank YOU. Comments like that remind me why I bother posting at all, when so often, and in this frankly —— up timeline, I feel like I’m screaming into the void.

  4. The multiplayer (online) component of Halo PC provided me with many hours of fun.

      I’m on PS4/5 now, but I do lament I’ll miss HALO Infinite.
