Pino,

     We’ve had 2 ways of keeping in touch… this and fantasy baseball.

     The Rainer Beach Ballers made the playoffs again…

     You’ve dropped your team… again.

 

     Second ..

    …..   is this a blog.

 

     So research that yourself. 

     And then vote however you feel you need to.

 

     So be it the king has spoken.

     All praise King Flaco.

  

     Palin/Limbaugh 2012!

 

     Post Script… I’d vote for Palin to abort! 

      Limbaugh Too!

Dear Flaco,

So, Obama has decided that he is going to make a stand on this whole National Health Care thing.  He feels that America is not providing for her citizens and that many are going uncared for.  In fact, the number 47 million has been tossed around.  As in, there are 47 million uninsured people in the United States.

Can you help me clear up some confusion I have?

  1. How many of those 47 million are not even citizens?
  2. How many of those 47 million are kids now covered under S-CHIP?
  3. How many of those 47 million are people that make more than 300% of the FPL [poverty level] and choose not to purchase insurance?
  4. How many of those 47 million people have the ability to obtain insurance under existing government programs?

And then, when you are done obtaining –wait for it—–FACTS, please help me in determining how financially secure the French system is right now.

In advance –  Thanks,

-pino

Myself  (and Flaco) …

     Hi me.  You are looking as ‘hotter’ than your normal ‘hot’.

     I love you.

     By the way, As a left leaning person, one must laugh at PETA.

     In this last week they have complained about two issues…

          #1.  The Fishmongers at Pike’s Place market. 

     The Employees at Seattle’s famous fish market in downtown Seattle are being ‘raked over the coals’ for tossing fish.  Dead Fish.  See when a person purchases a fish one employee throws the recently dead (about one day – on average) fish across the displays to another worker.  It’s a crowd pleaser. 

     PETA says it’s disrespectful.

     #2. Obama kills a fly.

     Well, thanks PETA for proving Obama’s human.

 

     As a left leaning person, PETA … get real.

 

 

     So be it the king has spoken.

     All praise King Flaco.

  

     Palin/Limbaugh 2012!

 

Post Script…

I love you, Flaco…

Pino,

     Lets rumble.

     Your Post…

 

See, life begins at some point.  For some, it’s at inception.  When the swimmer beats the odds and merges with the egg and 1 cell turns into 2.  They say “That’s life.  The Spirit of the Providence is present and this is a child.”  Other say, nope, not till the moment the fetus is outside the body of the mother.”  I know where I stand, but, more important I think, is that people have a conversation about where life begins.  I suspect, for most of America, is begins much much sooner than “birth” and a bit after inception.  And I’m willing to work on that, compromise.  But really, at some point, that group of cells has what is inherently referred to as qualifications of person hood.  And that, THAT person has rights.  And simply not being wanted doesn’t trump their wanting.  Wanting a car, a degree, a glimps of sunshine….of being.  They, THEY get to choose too.  In fact, we afford them that choice, rather, right:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.

In the end, it’s clear:

I, as a man, have a right to enter into opinion on this topic.

There are legitimate circumstances when the right to choose ought, Ought, be extended to the woman.

What we are talking about is a child.  A living being endowed with rights from the divine; as layed out by our Founders.

And you know that.

 

     So, I’ve said, and believe,  in pro life.    As a personal choice.  As a left leaning  voter  that smokes, drinks, and has short hair;  I am forced again to defend myself from a long-haired, commitable, GOP F#$%.

     I will continue to vote pro-choice.  As you will continue to vote pro life.

 

     So why?  As someone who is pro life… why?  Why would I vote pro choice.  Why?

 

     TWO REASONS…

     A WOMANS RIGHT TO CHOOSE.

     FREEDOM OF RELIGION.

 

     A womans right to choose is way to complex for you ….

     So       ….    layed out by our founders ….   we got this freedom of religion thing here in the United States of America. 

  

     So leave Christianity out of the conversation.

 

     I’m not in politics, neither are you. 

 

     Do you vote Christian or American?

 

 

     So be it the king has spoken.

     All praise King Flaco.

 

     Palin/Limbaugh 2012!

 

 

     Post Script  … 

 

     You wrote…

 

     So,  given that, I don’t wanna hear no story about “what if my bestest super duper friend in the whole world was raped, should she be forced to keep the child”?  No one thinks that she she be forced to.  Same with the health of the mother/baby.

 

     So dumbass… how do you vote?

 

     Back alley or Hospital?

     Do you vote Christian or American?

     ?

Nice

Dear Flaco,

I see how it is.  Compromise means having your opponent walk to you while you stand still.

Got it!

I am going to use what you refer to as logic.  Only women who have been pregnant should be able to have an opinion and weigh in on this subject.  If you have not been pregnant, your opinion is kinda like pissin in the wind.

And you know it.

Love,

Pino,

     You wrote…I fail to understand what me being a man has to do with anything.  As if, somehow, being one sex versus another in some way makes me unable to bring to the discussion the appropriate thought processes, empathy or intellect.

     I disagree.

     First off your not to manly. 

     Secondly  … could a woman ever really understand how a man would feel if his ‘junk’ got cut off? 

     I don’t think so.

 

     Could a man ever understand what a woman feels like getting an abortion?

     I don’t think so.

 

     Could a man ever understand what a woman might go through carrying a child?  (Wanted or unwanted)

     I don’t think so.

 

     Now I know you’ll try to apply this to some other topic or situation.  That’s just a smoke screen.

 

     A man won’t understand what a woman goes through in a pregnancy/abortion/childbirth.

     Just like a woman will never understand what a guy/boyfriend/father goes through.

 

     Also I never said you were excluded from this topic, I simply stated that you really have no say in the matter.  You may think you do.  But you don’t.

 

     So be it the king has spoken.

     All praise King Flaco.

Dear Flaco,

I understand that their are topics that generate the most fundamental fires within us.   That some things are so near and dear, so a priori in concept,  that we almost find ourselves unable to consider the “opposing” point of view.  And I understand that abortion is one of those things.  I get that, in fact, I resonate with that.  In fact, it rings deep within me to the very same extent that it rings within you.  This, to me, is as fundamental to my core as you find it to yours.  So, when you bring to me this moral high ground bull shit, I ain’t gonna back down.  In fact, I’m gonna bring it.

In order:

I fail to understand what me being a man has to do with anything.  As if, somehow, being one sex versus another in some way makes me unable to bring to the discussion the appropriate thought processes, empathy or intellect.  I am stunned at the double standard broght forth by this arguement.  Could you imagine the outrage and shock, OUTRAGE, if I posited that there was a certain topic that women were simply excluded from based on nothing more than the fact that they were women.  For example, women are not allowed to sevre in combat.  Therefore, since almost all war is really about combat, all women have ZERO say about deciding anything whats so ever about the terms and conditions of war.  Is that silly?  Over the top?  Ridiculous?

Yup.

And so is the fact that as a man, somehow I am lacking in some fundamental way that prohibits me from rendering my legit and valid opinion on this matter.

So, abortion will happen.  And so, because it will, we should make it legal.  So, knowing that home invasions will happen, and when done in the legal framework that make them illegal, people get hurt and sometimes die, we should…….yup.  Make them legal.  Because, you know, someone making a poor decision should be protected from that decision and therefore, whatever else we feel about that act, it should be rendered legal.  Cause, you know, wouldn’t want them to have to accept responsibility.

Now.

Stop.

Every single Pro-Life person I meet extends choice to the mother [funny word, that.  Mother.  Almost as if there was a, you know, child. I digress] in the case of:

  1. Victim of crime
  2. Health of mother/baby

So, given that, I don’t wanna hear no story about “what if my bestest super duper friend in the whole world was raped, should she be forced to keep the child”?  No one thinks that she she be forced to.  Same with the health of the mother/baby.

Lemme tell you a story.  Every single father to be has this dream.  It’s the day, you know, THE freakin day.  Mama exclaims it’s time, we have to go.  And go now!  So off to the hospital you go and yourin the room with the doc and the nurse and mamma is breathin and pushing and screamin and breathin and pushin and then, hmm, what the fuck, THAT scream was a different scream.  And the doc says to you, Dad, you have to wait outside, follow the nurse.  And then your worst fears are confirmed when the doc comes out to the waiting room and says “There is a problem, we won’t be able to save them both……”

EVERY SINGLE DAD HAS THIS DREAM!

I still have variations of it.  Car washed over a bridge, hostage scenario or home invasion.  Tsunami.  In fact, imagine the horror of dreaming that you can save 1 but not both of your children.  Awesome, that dream.  Some nights I can’t sleep for fear of it.

Point is, every freakin body understands health of baby/mother and the choice that most certainly be allowed in that scenario.  The liberal freakin left is NOT alone in their enlightenment of this concept.  And I would appreciate some acknowledgment of the same.

So, unless I am mistaken, we are in agreement so far in extending choice to the mother in several cases.  Which leaves us with the rest.

See, life begins at some point.  For some, it’s at inception.  When the swimmer beats the odds and merges with the egg and 1 cell turns into 2.  They say “That’s life.  The Spirit of the Providence is present and this is a child.”  Other say, nope, not till the moment the fetus is outside the body of the mother.”  I know where I stand, but, more important I think, is that people have a conversation about where life begins.  I suspect, for most of America, is begins much much sooner than “birth” and a bit after inception.  And I’m willing to work on that, compromise.  But really, at some point, that group of cells has what is inherently referred to as qualifications of person hood.  And that, THAT person has rights.  And simply not being wanted doesn’t trump their wanting.  Wanting a car, a degree, a glimps of sunshine….of being.  They, THEY get to choose too.  In fact, we afford them that choice, rather, right:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.

In the end, it’s clear:

I, as a man, have a right to enter into opinion on this topic.

There are legitimate circumstances when the right to choose ought, Ought, be extended to the woman.

And you know that.
