if we still have snow, find a hill! I think arroyo del oso golf course has one.
we have some pretty churches. old town...
but yeah, i think the only event spots open are casinos. and we have some really nice ones.
i myself will be curled up on the couch with my pets watching football, drinking boozed up eggnog and snacking all day.
Animal cruelty (which includes neglect, let alone abuse and torture) is a criminal offense.
This is true. Not that you would really want to read it, but there is literature out there from psych evals of torturers and abusers.
I want to be able to help protect animals from abusers. But how? It's not a simple matter of trying to educate them. These folks need to be in therapy.
That sounds like a fair proposal. Since the initial concern in this string of posts was young girls who may not have the rational decision/consequence abilities to take the MAP as directed.
IF they were to make MAP OTC then I think I would have to agree they should go ahead and make the regular pill OTC. In fact, they should offer the regular pill OTC before the MAP.
And please note I am in no way arguing that access to bc encourages kids to have sex that they otherwise wouldn't have. Hormones and peer pressure make kids have sex.
Just because we want to curb teen pregnancy does not mean we should give them easy access to a potentially dangerous pill.
We can't delude ourselves into thinking we're going to educate them on the harmful effects of overuse of the MAP when we can't educate them on the basics of sex ed.
And it isn't easier to use condoms and bc pill than it would be to use OTC MAP. You have to get a prescription for the pill. And you have to force the guy to wear a condom (no easy task).
That's a stronger deterrent for dumb young girls not overusing the the MAP.
that "gmo foods have not been proven to be harmful" blah blah
Isn't that what they do for the hormone free dairy labeling?
That's probably in the linked article that I didn't read yet.
