    And my longtime California GOP buddies still call me asking why I dumped the GOP after so many decades and what it will take to get me back. My answer? Let the south Secede. And take the rest of the Bible Belt with them.

    @martydotcom I have mixed feelings about the disaster relief situation. I read homeowner insurance doesn't cover flooding. How is that? What do they cover? And why are insurance companies allowed to exempt anything that they might actually have to pay up for? In California I have to have homeowners insurance, separate flood and mud insurance AND separate Earth quake Insurance. What a scam that is. And of course every time there is a disaster the insurance companies try to not pay.

    @jessejaymes Historically home owners insurance excludes coverage in Flood Zones or high risk area such as you describe, as defined by the Army Corp of Engineers. Like all insurance companies they wouldn't take on an obvious high risk Hence the National Flood Insurance program. I've always been in favor of a national disaster insurance to cover those in Tornado Ally, Earthquake Prone West coast locales, and coastal areas. The whole concept that makes insurance a viable business is to spread the risk to as many paying customers as possible... With a national disaster policy the risk is dissipated so as not to have one disaster bankrupt the company

    @martydotcom A national disaster relief policy would be all fine and good except people like me would pay (as I do now) and people like most would not and we'd still be expected to bail them out. There is no easy answer here. I read in an Oklahoma wild fire disaster that FEMA bailed them out, 81% had no insurance. Why would people pay in if they know they will get bailed out? That's just wrong.

    He's not partly right at all. Women who have been raped have the same chance of pregnancy as anyone else. Ridiculous.

    I'm sure glad he was never my ob/gyn. I would like to hear his explanation of what happens within a woman's body during rape, though. This article lacks detail, as usual.

    @woodtick57 theres nothing magic about it; the human body does all kinds of amazing things, which are affected by mental condition and focus. Placebo effect, focused healing, doubt versus hopel the studies are endless. There is nothing magic about a traumatized brain shutting down the reproductive system in response to a rape.

    What these assmonkey politicians seem to forget is that a woman has to be OVULATING at the time she is raped in order to become pregnant. If she's not ovulating at the time, she won't get pregnant. The body can't stop ovulating as a defense mechanism. These "men", and I use that term loosely, need to sit down and STFU when it comes to women's issues because they don't have a clue.

    yea it certainly would get rid of alot of liberal democrats
    one of the questions could be
    "What is the difference between a Clip and a magazine"
    and another could be
    "Is an AR 15 a fully automatic machine gun"
    and another could be
    "Why did Hitler dis arm the public"

    @Vance1

    Understanding rape, which is a crime of violence against not just women, but also children,, is far more important than knowing gun terminology.

    @PayThatCEO
    Yea thats what they think
    HiItler handed out Lugers and Mausers to all the Jews, along with 6,000 rounds of ammo each and instructed them to shoot back at the SS and Gestapo that were rounding them all up.

    Don't you just love the liberal re-write of history?

    I'm glad he changed his stance. If women who were raped would go to the emergency room after, they would be given the morning after pill to prevent a pregnancy. Plus that is the only way for the police to obtain the evidence they need from the rape kit to prosecute the rapist. With out that examination and the evidence collected, it could just turn into a he said/she said situation. Very hard for the prosecution of the rapist without that evidence! Then the rapist is free to do it again to another girl/woman.
    I do know of girls from high school who got pregnant and to not get in trouble with her patents cried rape. That is something girls need to be educated about. I was pregnant in high school. I did not cry rape, though legally it was statutory rape. I convinced my parents not to press charges(I probably shouldn't have because I was fresh out of tenth grade and he was in his twenties). I knew better than to have sex. My patents taught me better. There was another girl at school pregnant. She cried rape. I know for a fact she was not raped. She put that boy through hell because she had consensual sex with him and when she found out she was pregnant and cried rape, her patents had rape charges pressed against him. It is girls like these that make real rape harder to prosecute. Thank God he was found not guilty. He eventually ended up with custody of the child. She knew better just like I did, but did not accept resposibility for her own actions, only her actions causes pain for real rape victems and the boy she accused.

    Did you read the article? He changed his stance. Did you read even the first sentence of my reply? Much less the whole? Obviously not or you would get it.

    To Politix, since you called the congressman anti-abortion will you please start referring to those who support abortion as being pro-abortion? It's only fair. Don't you think?

    There actually is a difference, although I can understand your view here. Anti-abortion means against abortion under any circumstances. Pro-abortion would mean you fully approve of abortions. Pro-choice indicates that even if you wouldn't choose abortion yourself, you don't feel you have the right to make that choice for anyone else. Pro-life is the same as anti-abortion, just spun into language that would indicate that if you disagree with someone who claims to be pro-life, you must be anti-life. In my opinion, the only disengenuous term is pro-life.

    this is why I refuse to see male OB-GYN. I had one once who told me PMS is all in a woman's head. That was last time I ever saw a male GYN. Sorry, guys. No matter how much schooling you have, you will never know what being a woman is like.

    @PayThatCEO as a married man, I can't see how these are the idiots that want to dictate women's health issues.
    Its OK for insurance to pay for viagra but not women's birth control? That's ridiculous.
    Personally I don't believe in abortion but who am I to tell another human being what to do with their body?

    Nobody seems to care that the statement is scientifically correct. It has been shown that womens bodies really are able to do this. Maybe not always, but they can. So it doesnt mean all rape victims are liars, but I know for a fact that some women do falsely accuse men of rape through a veil of fake tears and adamant lies in the face of evidence to the contrary. Having seen it with my own eyes, I wonder how many innocent men sit in jail just because it is politically incorrect to talk about certain things like this
