At six weeks, the "person" you are talking about is the size of a lentil.

You're gonna have a tough time arguing that there is sentience-level brain development at that point.

"Oh, but there's a heartbeat!"... that must mean it's already a little tiny person, right?

Uh, no. Cells, like heart cells, self-organize to the point of beating. There is a continuum of existence from fertilization to birth, but only anti-choicers take the decidedly theological; not based in science; position that at the moment of conception by magic, this-



becomes the functional (and, by their thinking, legal) equivalent of this.



Now, I like babies too. But a fertilized egg is not a fetus at 6 weeks is not a baby. And regardless, the ONLY person fit to make a determination about what a woman should be "allowed" to do vis a vis her own reproductive system, is the woman in question. These decisions are too crucial, too personal, too life situation-specific, to leave to total strangers, panels of priests, Ohio legislators with a history of domestic violence complaints, etc.



And most abortions take place in the first trimester. This bullshit about women running around pregnant for 8 months and then aborting because they feel like it is James O'Keefe, right-wing bullshit, the same people who want you to believe that Planned Parenthood calles pregnancies "parasitic". Derp.

Santorum was on a show called "The Messy Truth"?

Okay, that's pretty funny.

the only thing is, there's somewhere between a half and a percent that votes Green EVERY 4 years.

So when we're doing the math we would do well to not count on those votes, at all.

Arguably one might make the case that the difference, for instance, between the Green performance in 2012 & 2016, that could be pointed at and said "stupid fucks, you should have voted for Hillary".

But, really, anyone who didn't vote for Hillary, one could make the same argument.

As to your first question, I think Clinton the candidate did an exemplary job from the Convention onward. But I think her campaign made some profound tactical errors around ignoring the rust belt as well as not coming up with a simple cogent message to the economic anxieties of those voters.

If nautical nonsense be something ye wish

Well, I guess that's your business.

yeah, it's like someone broke into the convention and just left him there on the stage.

How'd he get here? We had nothing to do with it.

well, the great thing about the Illuminati is, they're an all-purpose conspiracy theory.

They can be Jews, Masons, Catholics, Satanists, The British Royal Family, Scientists, Anarchists, Fascists, Atheists, Communists, Lemurian Lizards from inside the Hollow Earth, Dog People from Sirius, or time-traveling acidheads playing a joke on humanity.

Of course, I'm only saying that to cover for the real Illuminati, who are out to get you.

There are probably few people on the planet I can less imagine being in the shoes of

than that dude, anyway.

He's like a Zen Buddhist cautionary tale of exactly how not to get distracted by the whirring, buzzing, ego fear and desire attachments in the region of thud.

It's not just about "getting high". The drug war is a decades long clusterfuck that has destroyed

lives and taken several huge shits all over the bill of rights.

Anything that drives a stake through the heart of that fucking policy Dracula- and mark my words, pot legalization is a big one- is absofuckinglutely a priority.

If someone wants to call me "infantile" for thinking this is an actual important issue, fucking fine. I'm closer to the grave at this point, than the cradle. Move me in the other direction all you want.
