Paul Joseph Watson

Women, please consider this scenario :

You are a teenager and you are pregnant. You had no birth control options and the condom you used broke. Now the father refuses to allow you to take the morning after pill. Abortion is illegal. You have no choice but to give birth. Once you give birth, your child is taken away from you immediately since the father gets automatic custody. You have to pay the father every month for twenty or more years a significant percentage of your wage. You can not afford to pay the father, so you are imprisoned. Everyone thinks you are a terrible mother and it's all your fault. After all, you were the slut who should have kept her legs closed in the first place. You are told to woman up and take responsibility. You are now a branded and convicted deadbeat mom. Society hates you. Your child despises you.

Welcome to the world of men.

"Why would you make fun of someone who is fat in the gym, when you have concrete evidence that they're trying to fix the problem?"--Don't know who first said this, but it's still a win either way. :)

And this why Quark is badass

This is also how Ferengi were almost always presented:  Peace is preferable because it affords more opportunities for business.  Even the weapons merchants don't like actual warfare, since it damages the ability of customers or potential customers to pay for shipments.  Weapons merchants prefer the threat of war, as that encourages the purchasing of arms without damaging the productive economic activity that provides the funds to pay for the weapons, allowing much more money to be obtained for a much longer time.

The cultists always mistake warfare for something that generates money for someone.  War is almost always the most expensive possible way to get hold of anything.  While it might make some people rich, that's because governments seize wealth from others to pay for the armaments, or the tools, materials, and labor to make them.  (Compare how Thomas Jefferson proposed the US get hold of the lands of the native people to warfare:  Get them into debt by encouraging traders to sell to them on credit, and when they're in too deep to pay it back, 'rescue' them by buying their lands.  This was much cheaper and a LOT more certain than invading their territory, which had the risk that the general population might object to it, for several reasons, even from people who personally might have an irrational hatred for the native people in question.)

Not a specific quote but Politifact has not been giving pro-min wage statements a very warm response.
Working every day to expose the terrible price we pay for government.

The Doctor doesn't use guns. Except when he does. And then he's a total badass!

Here we have the Hitchens brothers on a UK current affairs show from back when Salman Rushdie was Knighted.  The socialist gets reamed for failing to condemn the violence and opposing the honor, and the Conservative condemns the violence and also condemns the honor because he doesn't think Rushdie's work good enough to deserve one.

And it took all of about 2 minutes, about 40 seconds of which was because Twitter has an abnormal search interface.

Now, does anyone know if Josh writes these for her like he writes her blog?
