The flame that is between us could set every soul on fire. I would love to take that heat and let's fill the whole world with desire.

A lot of women who live in a patriarchal society have developed what's known as a sub-society based on a 'Uterine family' following - but support their society? Only because they're raised to believe it was right.
We don't have that in the US: no matter what men and women say when theyre being extreme - we are egalitarian. Not one or the other.
A screaming comes across the sky.
It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.Pynchon - Gravity's Rainbow

A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.
Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.
All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
abortion wouldnt be an issue is we could just legalize shotgun weddings!!
“You can lead a horse to water, but it is probably crowded with all those people you taught to fish.”
The morality of abortion is not a religious belief, any more than the morality of slavery, apartheid, rape, larceny, murder or arson is a religious belief. These are norms of the natural law of mankind and can be legislated even in a completely religionless society.
