Ted Nugent is a hunter that eats the meat of what he hunts and kills. What is wrong with that?
As far as where the money is, I have no idea, all I know is he increased money to education by 40% and it did no good.
And yes, I believe poor parenting is 90% of the problem.
And No, I don't think it is right to double tax someone.
The morning after pill PREVENTS pregnancy. If you really want to split hairs, you could say that it sometimes prevents implantation of a fertilized embryo, but regular birth control does the same thing.
Conservatives, and no, maybe not you, do not want people to get good sex ed. Abstinence-only education increases teen pregnancies. They were against the HPV vaccine on the grounds that it would encourage people to have sex before marriage. They don't want people to get pregnant necessarily--- but they sure don't want anyone to be educated or make informed decisions about sex either. It ain't 1950.
I have no problems with responsible hunting (ie, licensed, in-season, not canned, etc.) Legal, fair hunts are important because we've screwed up the ecosystem so badly that we have to be artificial predators.
The estate tax is good. Why should we NOT tax someone who is inheriting millions? They sure didn't work for that money. And in many cases, it isn't being taxed twice because it has been tied up and had some accountant magic on it. The middle class is being forced to bear the tax burden of the wealthy. Dumbest idea EVER.
