John wayne? You mean the guy who stayed in hollywood while other actors were in the trenches or in the air bombing the enemy? He was no hero.

Romney? He couldn't plan a cotillion, much less a highly-sensitive raid. Obama took the smart route--he oversaw the operation but let the experts do what they are paid to do. He also made the mart decision to not let the body or pictures out; martyrdom is far less impressive when it's unseen.

You are out of your minds if you still do not know what the right thing for you and to do, is.
The best AND right thing to do is to fire Obama absolutely as there is no other way.
That is it--Obama is supposed to be let go by all of you in this election.
You need a strong fellow as tough as John Wayne, who is fit for the image of the president and that image can only filled by Romney, but not Obama.
Obama has failed in everything, without doing one single thing of any accomplishment but making vast damages and destruction.
On Iraq, Obama claimed he had achieved approving and helping the mission of Bush by saying,"Mission accomplished".
If it was Romney, he would say, "This is the time US withdraws from Iraq, for this confirms the ending involvement engaged from former administration".
On bin Laden, many people do not like and disapprove the way of Obama's handling, by bowing to others like Muslims, to shuffle against them by telling to take credit instead, while there are not any pictures of dead body shown by being sloppy and giving a poor presentation.
Unlike Obama, Romney would take charge of overseeing the raid, and give more details from the bin Laden case on all the conspiracy of bin Laden and 9-11 case, besides showing pictures of dead bin Laden and would not give excuses of fear of Islams and Muslims--that is supposed to be the way of a great man as president would do--and serving that is what US people want to know.
Unlike Obama, by pointing to Bush, if Romney would be in charge of the economy for the last few years, the present public health care would be cost-effectively in place, debt-levels would not rise, simultaneously the unemployment rate would be well under 6% and income and wealth of people would not drop. The middle class would not have declined and education becomes competitive for all people. No matter what color and race of people are, they all have job opportunities and that is all that matters. Women would be doing fine with rights of better choices, to choose between careers, freedom of living and style besides choice of abortion, with freedom of speech while having more liberty, to be single, married or single mothers.
The future would be bright with Romney thus because all of you need a great man with vitality, who possesses hands-on ability and skills, with great communication gesture and presidential image, to lead to get things done in the right way.
Obama is not real, but an unrealistic radical, extremist as a con artist with a poor perversion image while having none of any capability.
Now that YOU KNOW, what are you waiting for?
Elect your good future which is right for all of you--Romney-Ryan for 2012.

<quoted text>Nobody is required to comment, but are are entitled to. Interesting thing about the Duggars; even people who don't watch their show (like me) or don't have pay TV (like me) know about them. So, if Mrs. Duggar makes her private business, very public business, she obviously isn't opposed to people talking about her. Afterall, if the public isn't interested, they won't pay attention, and she doesn't make money.
In my opinion, this is hypocrisy. If one believes women should have the right to be free from judgment regarding their reproductive decisions, whatever the decisions may be, the fact that the woman in question is a publicity hound should not mitigate that personal belief on one's part. It seems to me certain posters here are doing exactly what they decry, and I am simply pointing this out. Obviously, my assertions are not being universally well received - and I can live with that.

If you like, I'll 'admit' instead that I didn't use that term because I proofread before typing.
"If you like, I'll 'admit' instead that I didn't use that term because I proofread before typing."

You proofread before TYPING?

Good job displaying how you proofread. Burned yourself with your own arrogance and stupidity. Not only are your arguments epic fails, but your insults are epic fails too.

<quoted text>Wow. Ok - I asked why the Duggars' reproductive choices were being judged by folks who claim not to judge the reproductive choices of women in general, and that no one should judge the reproductive choices of others. Rather than examine the motives for judging the Duggars, I was informed that those folks have every right to judge the Duggars, because the Duggars are television personalities.
If you don't want to examine this hypocrisy, I'm certainly not going to DEMAND that you do. I was just laboring under the impression that I was conversing with women of thoughtful intelligence - if I was mistaken, I stand corrected.
C'est la vie.
There's a difference between judging someone's reproductive choices and denying someone one of those choices. I may judge a woman who has several abortions in a country where she can acquire condoms free of charge or cheaply, as irresponsible. However, I uphold her right to have as many abortions, as she wants. It isn't my business but, privately, I may judge her. Who cares?

There is something that is often referred to as the authority of the media; it means that what we see in papers, on the internet, on tv, etc, bears more weight than what we discuss among ourselves. Should it? Not really, but it does. It's why charities compete for celebrity spokespeople instead of using their own people, and why a telethon is more productive than mail fundraiser.

The duggers used the media as a cash flow, using their family and their belief system as the selling point. That has impact, and I would guess it has lot of impact on young women who already romanticizes motherhood. They likewise opened themselves up to criticism, and it is up to them to decide how much it lets them affect their family.

(in all this, the kids are the ones who I believe are suffering. Can you imagine always having cameras around, lighting equipment, etc? There is a reason so many child stars are so fu**ed up later in life, and I despair when I think about these kids' futures.

Again, every woman has the right to make her own reproductive decisions in privacy. If, however, she chooses to reveal her private business, people may judge her decisions, favorably or negatively. That is human nature, like it or not. When I tell people I had an abortion, I know that some of them will not approve. So what? That's their right.

I'll happily agree to disagree with you, as well. You seem to be one of the thoughtfully intelligent women with whom I'm pleased to be conversing here, even though our opinions do differ.(And really, thank goodness for that, eh? Bland is not a pleasant flavor, jmo.)

Contrary to appearances, I didn't come here to piss people off, but I certainly seem to be having that effect anyway - present company excepted, as your replies are relatively free from acrimony. Thanks.

I agree with you about the kids of celebrities being the ones whose lives are not their own, and who are turned into celebrities themselves, perhaps against their wills, into the bargain. As I have never seen an episode of the television show, however, I guess I just don't feel qualified even to judge that.

My opinion on the personal responsibility to evince one's personal beliefs, rather than just claiming to have them, still holds - Mrs. Duggar, in my opinion, has not subjected herself to judgment I would otherwise withhold, had she made any other reproductive decision, simply by virtue of the fact that she is a television personality.

In other words, I don't judge any woman for her reproductive decisions, whether she is quietly getting an abortion, or proclaiming the fact that she is a mother 19 times over and trying for more. It's not my place to do so, and I don't care how many times it's pointed out to me that Mrs. Duggar is 'asking for it'.

She's not getting it from me.

As I've said before, these are just my observations. I don't expect anyone else to agree with them, as perspectives differ greatly from person to person. It's a wonderful world.

I have a head cold ans can't taste anything. Bland sucks:-(

Despite best efforts, every person makes judgments of other people and their actions, and often. Even the Dalai Lama admits to it. As long as we check our unfair thoughts with ethical ones, no one gets hurt, lol.

Aslo I find it odd that you would love your living grandson "even more", if he were gay. That must send some powerful sexually charged dysfunctional messages to him.
Yes, by all means, you proabort pagans have shown just how loving you are to the "right" unborn children.

It's not my place to judge her either - just like it's not mine to think Honey Boo Boo's mother is a pos. But yet, I do. That child is so talented and as of now being exploited - in my not so humble opinion.

The little girl reminds of Shirley Temple for some reason. No, no - I wasn't around back then - but I've seen her movies.

Ever watch Monsters, Inc.? HBB's mother reminds me of this character (Roz):

Sorry. Cannot seem to stop myself from judging others and either thinking indifferently, well or poorly of them. "Roz" gets a big thumb down - at least for the time being. Perhaps it will all end up happily ever after. That would be nice for a change.

Ah, do you see how fast the pagan proabort witches can turn on you. When you agree with them they love you. They love your moniker and anyhtng you say that "they' think attacks Christianity, Catholics and motherhood but when you deviate from the pagan "script", watch out.
Why do you think many like ladlulu have no opinion but just kiss the lesbain leaders arses.
You are defending a woman who has choosen to love motherhood and doesn't hate pregnanacy like Chaz Ocean. This woman has embraced her right to have children and love having children and love motherhood.
That drives the old hippie femminist proabort pagans crazy. The fact that you defend her right makes you evil.
They may suspect you are not a true proabort, or even worse--a secret Christian.
You're judging you know.

No dude, I don't agree with you on that. NOT ONCE has she kissed my ass, and I can be the most condescending, no bars hold,'bitch' out there.

Not only do I have the power (and have used it) to make up lies about people, bring up links that have nothing to do with the topic but used only for the sake of pissing people off, I have actually hunted the threads to suit my agenda and am able to twist it in such a way, that the word play I use makes sense.

So you go right ahead and accuse her of kissing asses, cause I know how important it is to have all these people that I've never met like me.

So DoubleT (DT from now on), go on insulting people and accuse them of kissing ass because you can't stand the fact that maybe she makes reasonable points that don't agree with you.

Sorry!

Support group for people that don't kiss your ass is held every Tuesday at 8, in the 'why don't people kiss my ass' forum,, on topix. I, of course, am the main speaker at those meetings, as I have the most experience. You can learn from my unpopularity, and maybe go with it, enjoy it, and laugh with me about it.

coffee is not free, please don't bring your own cup, Styrofoam is looked down upon.
Cookies are free (but probably laced), so don't trust those, I've fallen for that EVERY week. Wake up soar the next day, but those cookies are freakin delicious.

My opinon on Mrs. Duggard or whatever the hell her name is, of course she's going to be judged and ridiculed... HELLO.

Put your ass out there on such an issue, expect it to get kicked! Kissed, kicked, both apply.

I always said, if you're going to become a celebrity, prepare for the fact, that there is a small chance you'll make it and actually become a celebrity. Don't like it, drop out, and maybe end up on the cover of a magazine that reads,,, whatever happened to...
(doesn't apply to Royalty or tight connections to said celebrity) feel bad for them..
