    Well, at least you're consistent, even if I disagree with you. I think supporting one particular group's efforts to utilize its nation's democratic mechanisms is a perfectly fine way of advancing our interests abroad.

    I should note this doesn't mean that I supported the war.
    Of course, one does not imply the other.

    Re: Obama administration sending tax payer money to Kenya for abortion legislation

    Here's an idea ... (Maybe the White House is monitoring this site...)

    Instead of spending so much money for stupid things like abortions... why not be PRO-ACTIVE, and have the government send over a few hundred million prophilactics, and fund the Kenyan government to pass a law that men have to use them or the women can turn them in for a tidy sum. I totally understand the need to cut down on bloated toddlers with flies on their faces requiring basic food and shelter as well as pregnancy's many Kenyan's cannot afford. I also understand that there's still a bit of a problem with something called AIDS in Africa ... I think my idea's what's called a "two-fer".

    I bet it's cheaper too.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

To claim that our desire to acquire oil at the lowest possible cost is costing us orders of magnitude more money is just ridiculous.
    Our desire should be to stop funding terrorists through our addiction to oil.

    Here is another idea: we could read the thread and learn this story has already been refuted.

    But "America spends money on a constitution that restricts abortion," while more factually accurate, doesn't help their agenda as well as "America funds pro-abortion legislation" does.

    Conservatives. Jesus Christ. When they don't have something to attack, they'll literally reverse reality to fabricate something to attack.

    Refuted or not, it is still a good idea.

    Ya think?

    Did you have a problem when the Bush admin. when they forced the Iraqis to procuce a constitution in so many days?
