The Conservatives have failed - politics
While slumming in the right-wing blogosphere earlier today, I saw a headline that read as follows: "Obama To Putin: Will You Remove Your Troops From Ukraine, Pretty Please? — Putin To Obama: No." This sort of nonsense is emblematic of the Republican right's penchant for pseudo-macho posturing. We're the manly men, they seem to be saying. We'd know how to deal with Putin. We wouldn't let him humiliate us, as Barack Obama is doing. But inevitably, the conservatives never stray far from their self-image as America's manly daddy and protector. If it was up to them, they'd teach that Putin punk a thing or two. It's all bluster, of course. None of the Republicans in Congress actually are calling for a shooting war with Russia. That would be insane. Americans in general want us to stay the hell out of this Russia-Ukraine business. The last thing they want is any military involvement. That's the way they felt about the situation in Syria, too. But public opinion notwithstanding, the conservatives can't help but swagger, especially with regard to foreign policy. They've declared themselves unimpressed by the economic sanctions Obama has imposed on Russia, even though those steps are taking a toll. I guess they think he's not growling enough or something.

nothing says birth control like a Screaming Baby - politics
Why is it that almost half of U.S. adult pregnancies and a majority of teen pregnancies are unintended, even with many birth control alternatives on the market? Unfortunately, one reason is that access to affordable contraception continues to be a struggle for many women. If a woman does not have health insurance, birth control can simply be too expensive with costs ranging from $30-60 per month or up to $500 or more for a long-term method, plus the cost of a medical consultation and/or lab fees. Everyone needs access to adequate health care for all their needs; contraceptive coverage for all women is a good place to start.

"stand your ground" laws - politics
are abused by "hotheads" who lack the ability to approach or work out problems like adults. Too bad Dunn didn't just drive away.
