"...and it becomes pretty clear that they just want to punish women for having sex." - #15 | Posted by gtbritishskull at 2017-03-22 11:25 AM

100% correct.

Oh, and they're very happy about having abortions made illegal because, after all, they will always have the money to go to where they need to go to take care of their "problems."

Or, as P.J. said it so well:

"Take just one example of our unconserved tendency to poke our noses into other people's business: abortion. Democracy--be it howsoever conservative--is a manifestation of the will of the people. We may argue with the people as a man may argue with his wife, but in the end we must submit to the fact of being married. Get a pro-life friend drunk to the truth-telling stage and ask him what happens if his 14-year-old gets knocked up. What if it's rape? Some people truly have the courage of their convictions. I don't know if I'm one of them. I might kill the baby. I will kill the boy.

"If the citizenry insists that abortion remain legal--and, in a passive and conflicted way, the citizenry seems to be doing so--then give the issue a rest. Meanwhile we can, with the public's blessing, refuse to spend taxpayers' money on killing, circumscribe the timing and method of taking a human life, make sure parental consent is obtained when underage girls are involved, and tar and feather teenage boys and run them out of town on a rail. The law cannot be made identical with morality. Scan the list of the Ten Commandments and see how many could be enforced even by Rudy Giuliani." - P.J. O'Rourke

Meanwhile this ignorant fool wants to dramatically cut funding for NOAA Weather Satellites.

"The Trump administration is planning to make drastic cuts to the weather satellite budget of the National Weather Service's parent organization, NOAA, the Washington Post reports. Weather experts interviewed by the post stated that these proposed cuts would impair the Weather Service's forecasting ability in a number of critical ways that would endanger Americans including hurricane and tornado forecasts.

The apparent motivation for these cuts is the elimination of climate science satellites. The people proposing these cuts don't seem to understand that climate science is the integration and analysis of weather data over time. Satellites provide critical instantaneous data on weather, sea ice and crop conditions that are used commercially by public and private organizations to make decisions that are critical to protecting life, transporting goods, growing food and managing water supplies, etc."

The Little Boy was 120 inches (300 cm) in length, 28 inches (71 cm) in diameter and weighed approximately 9,700 pounds (4,400 kg).[19] The design used the gun method to explosively force a hollow sub-critical mass of uranium-235 and a solid target cylinder together into a super-critical mass, initiating a nuclear chain reaction. This was accomplished by shooting one piece of the uranium onto the other by means of four cylindrical silk bags of cordite.

Stupidity. The gift that keeps on giving.
