Newhouse has been a surprising voice of (Republican) reason. He badmouthed the ban and co-sponsored legislation favorable to DREAMERS - two remarkably courageous and potentially politically fatal positions.

Yes indeed. Start with a dab that's about the size of half a grain of rice, and then only if you have a pretty good pot tolerance to start with.

I have had miraculous results with the Cannabis Basics products - seriously!! The first time I used them was like the eight time I tried cannabis lotions in the med dispensaries - none of them worked. I rubbed some on thinking whatever, and about halfway back to Yakima my hands started to work again, my arthritis was substantially diminished.

Fast forward to next week when I drove pell-mell back to Tacoma and purchased three small containers of the rescue balm. I applied it to my hands again and my wife said hey why don't you try it on your toe?

My right big toe was completely frozen - couldn't move it and it was completely numb. I'd stubbed it real badly while hiking about a year before and just grew used to having a numb toe. I rubbed some of the balm on my toe, not expecting much. It started to burn and itch, then after that I could move it again!! No poop, I was sold!!

Trumps crudeness and endorsement of rape only shocks people with a conscience, it won't effect most Trump supporters.

That was a pretty dumb thing to say, but thank God we've moved on.

It's wasn't a "woman" pounding her vagina with a cross in the Exorcist, it was a girl.

My friend told his kids that Santa is not real and whoo boy did he catch hell from the other parents when THEY told the truth to their friends.

Hillary is a least a competent technocrat. The rest of the field thinks that blowing up thwe world is a great idea - second coming of Christ and all that.
Sep 23, 2015 kbatku commented on Bros: Let's Talk About Planned Parenthood (Non-Bros Are Allowed to Read This, Too).
Abortion is a victim of it's own success. There was a reason it was made legal - many reasons actually. Rich people had no problem jetting off to Europe to obtain an abortion, the poor were left stateside to pop out unplanned baby after baby. You couldn't give away kids for adoption, orphanages were bursting at the seams. And yes, people who couldn't afford a flight to Europe often had illegal abortions, sometimes to horrifying effect.

Back in the 1970's the evidence for safe legal abortions was everywhere and everyone knew someone with a horror story. Now, 40 years later, thanks to safe legal abortion, the problems have largely disappeared. So it's harder for people to understand the need, which is the clearest reason to keep abortion safe and legal, so we don't backslide into the house of horrors that spawned the need for legal abortion in the first place.
