WHAT'S YOUR POSITION ON ABORTION ?
noseenobelieve comments on Dec 8, 2018:
Since over 90% of abortions are comfort abortions, we aught to realize that we are creating the situation to create the need for this act. There is no question that the child inside the womb is a real person. Infanticide is illegal and this is what abortion really is.
DUCHESSA replies on Dec 9, 2018:
Guess what? Call me infanticide as much as you wish....Abortion is OK. read about Iceland on this issue. If a woman becomes pregnant at the wrong time / she doesn't want to be a mother / her health is in danger...or the "baby" she carries is not normal and she wants to abort...is her right and privilege. No doctor / husband / boyfriend / friend / relative has any say on her decision.

Fortunately, MN is a lot wiser than us and "put" on this world all those brainy kids that were meant to enrich this world.

The school system is designed for failure....An unschooled person is one easily manipulated since he / she lacks the resources "to work less / earn more" doesn't provide him/her with the time to ask all those questions the big guys don't want to answer. If we go to the origin of the public school in most countries... we will discover that said system was created to benefit the high honchos. I wasn't able to open the article.

DUCHESSA replies on Dec 6, 2018:
The kids were 1st. graders....and no, you can't say one thing and few years later tell the kid it was a lie. Trust me, regardless of the issue, a lie is a lie and the kids don't forget. I didn't forget the lies my parents told me about "anything". ...and their excuse :"You wouldn't understand, you were 5 y/o." still ring inside my ears. No, childhood is not about magic and innocence...is about having things explained to them according to their age...but always based on the truth. BTW, I am a teacher.

DUCHESSA replies on Dec 6, 2018:
@Trajan61 I agree....but the truth is that NYC -in Social Studies- only teaches religion as to the importance this vermin have had on mankind...specially Christianity (III-IV centuries). I was able to refer to the atrocities inflicted on people by Christianity whenever I taught literature...and because the students were wiser than their parents. :)

DUCHESSA replies on Dec 6, 2018:
@jondspen Yes, dear, I entered legally. See...I couldn't be a Naturalized Citizen if I didn't. A person doesn't became "legal citizen" but legal resident first....unless you enter legally and go trough the process required for naturalization. The guy of the article deserves nothing but jail. Sure, most of the immigrants wants a better life. Nobody says no to this....but they should attempt such better life in their own country. The perfect example is today Venezuela...a country full of well educated people who don't have the balls to get rid of Maduro. And remember, not everybody emmigrate because politics and/or money. Enjoy.

Her mother -on account of her ex being an Atheist- is terrified the kid will become a godless being. No, I don't think the kid will ever be an Atheist. The priest's comment pointed to the kid being a kid...but in his sick mind a child must be submissive and obedient.

The girl doesn't know what 2 x 2 means....To attend mass more often could become a two edges sword since the girl could end up becoming a full blown Atheist or a candle liker for the rest of her life; she is at that age when a person could be easily indoctrinated. You may say "To become a full Atheist is right." Sure...but as long as is her own decision and not as the result of a reaction against her surroundings

@dokala Although there are problems common to all Latin American nations, there are others that are particular to each one in the region........So, I can't say which one would be the right one...nor a solution fits all. Right now, the G-20 is going on in Argentina and I know USA, / Mexico and Canada have signed a treaty that I hope would benefit the three countries; other bilateral treaties are being signed as well and I hope said agreements will bring peace and improvement to the region. No, I don't thing is the responsibility of USA to accept these migrants (at least no all at once) but, as a country with better means, I believe we must work to prevent new exoduses which not only will render said regions unattended / unproductive but will create a new nation: Narcotraffic Land. There are two issues within the realm of my expertise that is imperative we fix: they are related. The first is Instruction (school) and this one will lead to the elimination of the second big cancer in Latin America: the huge influence religion has on the region.

That's really bad....
DUCHESSA replies on Nov 30, 2018:
@bigpawbullets But "quarantine" now is seen as "caging the people". Mexico didn't wait to long to deport the 500 that attempted to break the USA-Mexico border few days ago.
Just what we need in our country: :-(

Are we forgetting the criminals who are mixed with the good people? Are we forgetting previous experiences like the Marielitos?

I don't know piff about finances / economy...neither I know if the number of people spending money is an indicator of how good / bad is the economy......but for the last two years I need to circle the shopping centers parking lots three and fourth times before I get an empty space (every ...
DUCHESSA replies on Nov 29, 2018:
@Trajan61 I believe the same....but since I am not an expert I can only guess. Another indicator -to me- is the large number of packages delivered almost every day to people in my building and to all the buildings in my area (UPS / Fed Ex info.) IAW, in person as well as on line people are spending a lot more now than under Obama.
Bad mixup at the store...

Piece2YourPuzzle comments on Nov 27, 2018:
Most countries don't really welcome migrants. Even social democratic countries. There is something about being territorial, or maybe it's something deeper, or a bunch of things together.
DUCHESSA replies on Nov 27, 2018:
It has nothing to do with being territorial but with the number of migrants; no country can deal with 10,000 migrants at once.

The liberals are the one who are Looney and irrational. Trump has figured out that the conservatives unfortunately can’t win without the support of the religous right wing and caters to them for support even though he is likely not a Christain himself. If I have to choose between the looney...

CrazyQuilter comments on Nov 24, 2018:
This quilt was inspired by the wild colors in Mexico and made while I lived there. It's an original design. The border was very frustrating, and I don't recommend doing designs that must meet precisely in 2 directions. It was professionally quilted. I can't handle big quilts on my home machine....

@CeliaVL Thanks. I made two place mates and the napkins...then I stopped quilting and took three jewelry classes. An advantage of being a retired teacher (NYC) is that I have access to many classes (Quilting, Art Collage, Jewelry, Learning LOTE, , Short story reading / debates....) for only ten bucks per class / semester.

GinaMaria comments on Jul 5, 2018:
Since there's an option for opting out, I don't see a problem. And it certainly saves precious time wasted trying to convince next of kin to agree to donation.
DUCHESSA replies on Nov 24, 2018:
@Sunsetmermaid I decide what to do with my body. Recently, two Argentinean female police officers were injured (same day) and both were pronounced dead "brain dead".veeeeeeeeeeeery fast; they were very young and free of diseases. How do I know they were really "brain dead"? I will never know but her organs were donated and their remains cremated. I doubt the medical community will be so speedy to declare " brain dead" a 50 y/o person. The only confort is that nobody gets paid for the organs.

To comment on your post. I remember being a 9 y/o kid when I asked my father "Why the prisons has to be nice; the thieves are not nice? " I guess in my child's mind bad behavior deserved bad surroundings. ...and I keep thinking the same.

DUCHESSA replies on Nov 24, 2018:
And the main problem is not the jails but that Mexico lacks the means to absorb such number of people. BTW, I posted in a different thread about the "possible criminals" walking with the others in the caravans. Only short-brained people think that NO ONE among 10,000 individuals is a criminal....or insane. Most Americans don't know / don't remember the "Marielitos".
