She says she believes in fairies. Having met her, so do I. With her delicate ears, and gossamer hair, her shyly elfin smile, her trueheart shines -immaculate like a Queen’s. Ah, if only I could reach fairyland, where little fingers and teacups never meet, where waterfalls flow whitely into emerald pools like silken spools. If only I could enter those elusive glades without...
Sexy Halloween costumes disgust me.
heartallonfire: Notice I didn’t say ladies who wear them are. However, they’re only sending this message, “I’m not worth getting to know, your time, your love, your effort. Look at me. I need attention, in the wrong way.” It’s sad. Ladies, your worth more than that. MUCH more.

weareflowers-deactivated2012101 asked: War, etc and don't even know the facts about the thing they're supposed to be protesting. (look up Are You Smarter Than a Wall Street Protester?"). Long rant short, I'm all for social reform, taxing the rich, and improving social programs but OWS is NOT the way to go about it. It's hard for people to take them seriously when they complain about debt and jobs because...
weareflowers-deactivated2012101 asked: Hey! I just wanted to let you know that I am so enjoying reading your responses to the attacks you've been getting lately. I live only blocks away from occupy wall street and wanted to add my two cents. I totally agree something's wrong with the economics in our country - bail outs, taxes, social welfare ALL need to be fixed. But I don't think OWS is the way to to about getting it....
Anonymous asked: but what about these corporations become too big to fail, like banks now are? They get money from the government for free and then they loan it right back to the government while giving big bonuses to their CEOs. Should that happen? No! That is the government taking money from US and giving it away. OWS isn't about telling rich people not to be rich, it's telling the government that...
Anonymous asked: Re: the 53% (because that was me too): 1. Your brother and you and the rest of your family are all part of the 99% no matter how hard you label yourselves otherwise. You're being put down just as much as I am by the corpulent corporations ruining our country. Not taxing rich people more is silly.

Anonymous asked: marginalizing a very wide spread movement down to "liberal arts majors are mad there are no jobs" is pretty invalid. There are tons of different people coming together. From what I've gathered, the protesters are speaking out against the rampant corruption in our political system today. No longer are the people in office "for the people". They are for the companies that...
Anonymous asked: Your answer to the anon "question" (or rather attack) on your post on the pill is the best thing I've read in a while. Thank you!
Anonymous asked: re: the pill: you don't know anything about long-term committed relationships (God doesn't count) or sex, so you probably shouldn't comment on those things at all. Thanks.
Anonymous asked: How can you defend the 1%, or at least openly mock the 99%, with your 53% silliness when Jesus (that's YOUR god) said "it's easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God"?
Anonymous asked: In regards to the post about the pill: you should probably read what you want to repost before you do so. For example: the bit about the pill causing cancer is from a 20 year old study. The pill has gotten considerably better since the late 80s, y'know. The bit about divorce has nice correlation, but the reason couples that use family planning stay together longer is probably not due to their...

rationyourthinking asked: So your rational boils down to: "the only reason I don't think murder and rape and all kinds of mayhem are ok is because God says so". Also "innocent" doesn't mean anything. Morality is a subjective man-made concept. Everyone thinks different thinks are good and bad and that's ok, but where you went wrong was following the advice of a book written thousands of...

diminisheddissonance-deactivate asked: Do THEY have a valid rebuttal?
rationyourthinking asked: Definitely was talking about your content-lite posts. Your older posts though don't really help your argument because it "Socraticly Audits" down to "God said so" which doesn't fly in a scientific argument.
Anonymous asked: But Olivia just answered with a strawman argument. It's not a valid rebuttal.
Anonymous asked: Ok, let's go from a different angle here. Even if we say that a first-trimester fetus IS a person, what makes it's life more important than the woman's? It is still her body. At least until the fetus reaches viability, if not until it is born.

Anonymous asked: Are YOU going to pay a 14-year-old's medical bills when her hips are too small for an infant to pass through and she needs a cesarean section?

Are YOU going to pay for the child's college tuition so he can break the cycle of poverty? Didn't think so.
