    Perhaps, but the failure rate for such devices is high. And mandatory sterilization may be unconstitutional.

    And since there is public transportation to this debauchery, even Ian should approve.
    I do. You preach freedom here. So let's see some!

    I am not saying that it should be illegal for the old ladies to sin, just that it is a foolish waste of money.

    An upbringing based on the Good Reverend John Calvin requires me to associate fun and spending money with foolishness.

    Sins to the self aren't really sin are they?

    I mean, the general jist is that it's God's body not yours so you'd best take care of it.

    I wish he'd take care of the pay check. It'd make taking care of this body of his a lot easier.

    But if we're really honest with ourselves we all know the reason why we have churches and religions.

    It's the best way to stop the poor from robbing and killing the rich for fear of what happens in the afterlife.

    Clever eh?

    I'm not sure that works well though. the Mafia gangsters did their killings and went to church on Sundays, and back to killing again anyway. never understood that. You could be right, but there is our God anyway, religeons or not. Religeons are a dime a dozen.

    Actually, religion exists because is the best way to convince everyone, of all incomes, to give money so that "The Church" (whatever that may be) and its leaders can acquire wealth. Religions make Bernie Madoff look like a two bit carnie. Religions are very expensive to operate. Jim Jones had a huge kool aide bill. And the Oblates had to build all those missions in northern Canada to have access to children to abuse.

    I'm worried that American parents of the prohibition era have passed down their beliefs, so that we have Americans alive now living with personal values better suited to a era that is long gone.

    And why drug test welfare recipients?

    That's nonsense. We don't test people who might use their welfare check to buy a gun or do a parachute jump.
    An important thing to remember here is that Social Security checks are getting back,eventually what you already paid in with your own money your whole life, and if you want to piss that away on drinking, dancing and doing the hootchy coo, its your business. Getting Welfare checks from the government as a reward for having kids you can't afford is not the same; you should be spending that money as said before, on feeding you kids, not your habit. worth saying again, in my opinion.
