    I’m not even outraged, I’m more perplexed by how somebody arrives at the thought you expressed in response to the tweet.

    "Personal convenience" Link I can personally attest to the financial constraints as a reason for abortion. It's why my wife had one a year or two ago, before I started my new job. She was at about 6 weeks. Between daycare, servicing all of our student loans, and paying down medical bills from her two hospital stays before giving birth, our first ER visit bill for my daughter when she was an infant, and then the debt incurred from having to deal with unpayed maternity leave, it was not financially possible to have another kid at my then current salary. Even having my wife stop working to take care of two kids would not have been possible without accepting nearly twenty more years of debt servicing on our student loans. So, uh, no thanks. These pro fetus assholes can take a long walk on a short pier. If they really cared about life, they'd make it so giving birth and taking time off for a newborn child aren't so financially burdensome, and that the woman has an actual choice to either return to work with daycare that isn't the amount of a mortgage itself, or can stay at home with the child without plunging their family into poverty (we were and are in a better position than most people, and we wouldn't have gone into poverty but another lifetime of debt shouldn't be the sentence for having a family)

    Of course, there is my personal preference that people receive "parental licenses" for reproduction that attests to their "fitness" to propagate the species.

    No one was actually expecting a "happy" ending. The actual expectation is an ending that feels "earned" by the events leading to that ending, and that is where the sense of disappointment lies because of the final two truncated seasons.

    Beto should have run for senate again and then run for Lt Governor if he failed. Democrats continue to have far too many people interested in becoming president instead of taking governorships, senate seats, and state legislatures.

    But you are comparing the two. The message in the tweet was there is nothing a man could experience that would be on the same level as bringing a rapist's parasite to full term. And you are saying "losing half your wealth" is a worse experience. So again you are a vile piece of shit for comparing the two.

    For the record, I am physically nauseated to be described as "pro-choice". I demand to be referred to as "pro-abortion" or "anti-life".

    That isn't even terrorism, that's just plain ol' racism. Killing a black person to stoke fears and incite a race war, that's terrorism.

    Holy fuck what does divorce law have to do with being a husband/boyfriend of somebody that got impregnated via rape and being forced to bring the rapist's parasite to full term knowing that it is not a parasite conceived through any type of love? This is the type of shit that brings about single parenthood and possible suicide. But that is alright as you score points for giving it to someone that would be "divorce raped." What the fuck does that even mean. You are a vile piece of shit for even comparing the two.

    I guess Dodger is pretty upset since now some of his white friends may be considered terrorists and start going to jail.

    And there's nothing wrong with making the best choice for your family, up to and including terminating an unexpected pregnancy. That said, I really dislike the moralizing tone of the phrase "personal convenience" and that's why I went off on a bit of a tirade. To me it implies a level of knowledge of someone else's situation that condescendingly passes judgement on the character and familial/socioeconomic/health statuses of a person getting an abortion. A personal convenience is making a list online and paying $5 to get your grocery shopping done and the bags brought to your car like Kroger click list. Avoiding years(maybe even decades) of physical, mental, marital, and/or financial hardship isn't a personal convenience.

    It's a stupid appeasement policy. 1. Users who wish to partake in the live service should have to verify their identity (e.g. something akin to a blue check mark) 2. Users who post content (without context) that is clearly promoting harmful ideologies (e.g. white supremacy, jihad, etc.) should be permabanned from the platform on the first offense. 3. Users who post criminal content (e.g. they're committing a criminal act) should be reported to their local police department, hence the first rule.

    It's not completely about winning; it's also about building the party by helping down-ballot races, especially in the courts where they now have majorities in half of the appellate ones.

    I'll freely admit that I simply don't believe in the "right" to choose to have an abortion. My entire support for the availability of abortion is based on one simple premise: abortion should be available so that society isn't burdened with unwanted mouths to feed. That's it - that's all the justification that should ever be necessary. No need to get twisted into theoretical knots about the existence of this right or that right.

    Played 3 more hours tonight. I'm glued to the screen the entire time I'm playing. The game is like the last of us open world. This is the definition of survival horror. The game has been fantastic. I'm guessing I'm 8-10 hours into the game. @stepee

    I have never used AMD processors and I have always had Geforce cards. I'm going to use the advise on the M2 drive and also getting a 1tb ssd's for gaking and everything else. Maybe another 500 gig for my pictures and music etc. I have a hard time not choosing Samsung, Intel, corsair, Nzxt, etc for parts as there what I know and have never had an issue. I'm weird in that regards. I know many will look at what I have and see lots of money to be saved. I'm loyal to brands that have served me well in th he past. This will be my 6th personal built PC and I want it to be the bad ass PC I always dreamed of but with in reason of course. My son and I were supposed to be building my next gaming PC together, hurts to know we will never do anything together again ever! Just virtually putting it together has been somewhat therapeutic, weird I know

    They have 3 Star Wars movies coming out in 2022, 2024 and 2026 so no they're not sitting on releasing Star Wars movies. I-IX is the Skywalker storyline so i don't believe we will get anymore numbered movies.

    I am seriously loving this game. Initially it took me a while to get used to the controls due to how much I played MKX but once I got used to the controls, the fun was unleashed on me. Johnny Cage has always been my fav MK fighter but to be honest, I am loving Jade so much that at one point I was almost playing with her more than Cage. - Loved the story mode. I thought the story in MKX was not memorable when compared, to past stories featured from Netherealms like MK vs DC, MK9, MKX, and the 2 Injustice games. I couldn't put this game down when I was playing the story and I seriously got a little sad when I got the 50% trophy as I knew I was flying thru it and it would end soon. Even seeing the character specific ending, at least the few I have completed, have been thought out endings. - As a vet of fighting games since Street Fighter 2 World Warrior, I was pretty damn impressed with the tutorial mode. The explanations were awesome. I think other fighters need to take note. I am one combo sequence away from unlocking the Shao Khan announcer and I just can't do that damn combo in the data and frame section. It's the last one that requires own to continue a combo after the character resets. So you need to pause but be quick and I guess I'm not pausing enough or my pauses are too long. Ugh. I'll get there. - I'm loving the grind of the Krypt. I don't know how others are feeling but it encourages me to play the game to get the money, hearts, and souls. Wanted to just unlock looks for Cage and Jade. I then realized the various ways to unlock things thru the towers and Krypt. I know it's not every ones cup of tea but I am loving it. - Then I tried the team battle online and that's such a fun mode. I need to get back on that. Seriously looking forward to the release of the DLC characters. Hit me up on PS4 if you need a sparring partner. Chitownshogun73 is my psn tag.

    There is a whole lotta Hugh Jackman in that trailer for a movie that does not have Hugh Jackman in it. That looks terrible, but honestly I don't like Sansa as an actress. Not a whole lot of range from her other than pissed off pout.

    what was everyone's expectations? I cant believe anyone would be upset about that turn of events. To her: She was betrayed by Tyrrion. She was betrayed and rejected by Jon Snow. She was Betrayed by Varys. Two of her dragons were killed. Sir Jorah was killed. And Cersei gave her a big fuck you with beheading Missandei. She stated she feels alone in Westeros, she has no one. She stated that the people of Westeros loved Jon Snow and not her. When she found out that everyone knows who Jon is, she realizes shes never going to be accepted as the true Queen of the Iron Throne. She snapped.

    So folks are upset about what exactly? Dany going crazy and sacking the city? Folks on this board have been predicting she would go mad for years now and the show definitely set up that she was losing patience. She arrived in Westeros at the beginning of season Seven with three dragons and all her closest advisors and some powerful allies. By listening to to Tyrion and showing restraint, she lost half her forces, two of her dragons and most of her closest friends. I didn't think they would have her go full on Mad Queen but they definitely were laying the ground work for it since the beginning of the show. Jamie and Cersei? I got nothing... Cersei deserved worse in my opinion. I guess there's some poetry to her dying under the rubble of the Red Keep but fuck poetry.
