Why are people mad that Trump stopped funding abortion in other countries? Why should we be paying for people in another countries abortions? Let their government handle that, it's not our responsibility. Bush senior threw it out, clinton brought it back, bush Jr. threw it out, obama brought it back, now trump got rid of it again. Where were you all the other times this was thrown out, I didn't hear from you then. Can someone explain to me, with a legitimate argument why we should be funding other countries abortions?
Happy President Days to ....

Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, and to George Bush sr , George Bush jr ( but I still dislike you ) , Hillary Clinton , Michelle Obama and to Lady Gaga , Katy Perry , Kate McKinnon, Lana Del Rey, John Legend, Madonna, Britney Spears and basically everyone except for The orange ass dude Trump

Thanks to Tumblr's algorithms, I saw your response to a March for Science Ask & it triggered this question from me (if I may): Why march *now*? As we've seen with the recent surges in measles cases and other VPDs, science has been foundering for quite some time in the public's eye. Since Bush, Sr. (which is when I started paying attention to it), NASA - for example - has seen it's miniscule budget slashed every year under every president since. So, why the imperative to March for Science now?

The March for Science isn’t necessarily a response to science floundering in the public’s eye - the urgency comes from our current administration using that public skepticism to justify elimination of key scientific programs, and we have got to speak up. We have never, in the history of this country, had an administration that was this vehemently anti-science. Scientific programs have struggled in recent years to compete for funding of federal programs, absolutely- but the threat of abolishment of some of those organizations (the Environmental Protection Agency being the most public right now, after a Rep. committee member from Florida pitched a bill that would abolish the EPA) has never been so imminent.

For reference, Canada’s ‘War on Science’ wasn’t a single action, but a series of decisions and actions that accumulated over time and resulted in everything from layoff of science staff; program cuts, eliminations, and dissolved research programs; muzzling and censorship of scientists; forced falsification of published data; revocation of environmental protections, and in general giant list of horrors that you can read here.

All signs point to it being even worse here in the States.

There is zero defense for Pinochet. Seriously. No libertarian should ever promote him or ever defend the guy.

Was he better than Castro? Of course.

Was he better than Che Guevara ? Of course.

But that’s like defending Bush Sr because he was better he was better than Obama.

Is that really the argument you want to make as a libertarian ?

Let’s make better arguments than this.

Fuck any mass murderer.

Trump

I think the casino bankrupter’s immense cognitive dissonance comes in part from his plan to financially benefit from running for president. Like his opponents did. He sat in the shadows for years planning his idiotic campaign. He knew he would never compete with Ronald Reagan, Bush Sr., Clinton, W, or Obama.

He clearly did not plan on beating Hillary Clinton. He started the birther movement just in case he wanted to run against obama. I’m sure his cohorts said don’t worry we’ll ruin him and do everything we can to dismantle his plans so you’ll look like more of a savior.

We’ve all been set up to just make a selfish dying old man richer. I’m ashamed to be American.

The government’s response to the AIDS crisis was infamously terrible. Former President Bush, Sr. once “responded to a reporter’s question on HIV research with the insipid comment that most people don’t approve of ‘that lifestyle,’ implying that funding HIV research wasn’t a priority,” recalls Peter. It could be worse: Reagan’s White House press secretary Larry Speakes once mockingly implied that another reporter who pressed the issue must be gay himself, to even care.

That kind of allergy to action is despicable, but at least they weren’t campaigning for concentration camps, like California’s Proposition 64, sponsored by the Prevent AIDS Now Initiative Committee. Yes, they actually called themselves “PANIC,” presumably because “Early Virus Identification and Liquidation” was taken. PANIC insisted that all they wanted to do was add AIDS to the CDC’s list of communicable diseases, but public health authorities warned that PANIC was downplaying the consequences of this, including mandatory testing and mass quarantine.

Not sure which I find most hilarious; the dialogue, the Reagan voice, the party favor sound or the drawings themselves.

The Time the United States Blew Up a Passenger Plane—and Tried to Cover It Up

Fury and frustration still mount over the downing of Malaysia Air Flight 17, and justly so. But before accusing Russian President Vladimir Putin of war crimes or dismissing the entire episode as a tragic fluke, it’s worth looking back at another doomed passenger plane—Iran Air Flight 655—shot down on July…

Interesting read and not surprised that most major media outlets are not bringing it up…

Such a shame (breaks my heart, but then bscly all of history = oppression and white supremacy)  that so many innocent people have died now and then due to conflict. 

*On a side note, why the hell did G. Bush Sr. think this was an ok thing to say during a time when the US screwed the hell up?? “I’ll never apologize for the United States. Ever. I don’t care what the facts are”
