  • Akin Tries To Explain “Legitimate Rape” Comment, Speak With KMOX’s Charlie Brennan (9:20 Central)

    Get real. The guy doesn’t have a point.

    Pregnancy is rare in cases of rape because DOCTORS handle the issue at the hospital if the woman comes in right after the rape by administering the morning-after pill, not because the body shuts down.

    The pro-life movement is never going to win the argument in cases of rape with the American public, and this idiot set us back many years in our better arguments for banning abortions EXCEPT in cases of rape or incest

    “The NYPost knows 38th Street is not Times Square”

    They may have chased him down to 38th Street, but the picture with this story shows the cop to be on 7th Avenue between 43rd and 44th. I know this because my office building is in the background of this picture.

    Lack of attention to detail? Hope my clients notice it? Sound familiar? Sound a bit personal?

    In any event, it doesn’t matter. I just asked Jim Rob to zot me at his earliest convenience — this site is just not for me anymore as it has taken an extremely ugly turn in the past year or two. This thread is just an example. Can’t disagree without it getting ugly, can’t have a debate that raises disputed views on Palin, and Murkowski, and O’Donnell, or much of anything.

    I know, I know, don’t let the door hit me.
    Don’t worry — I won’t.

    Look at the posting history on this thread.

    If you look at my post, number 81, I responded directly to two posters: you and napscoordinator. (Your post #23 was in response to his post #21)

    In post 21, napscoordinator had stated, “Remember when they tried to say Sarah was stupid for taking seven years to finish a four year degree.”

    But really, go ahead, continue with the personal attacks. They seem to be allowed on FR lately as long as you are on the perceived “right side” of an issue.

    My argument is that someone is unintelligent because they fail half their classes if they’re going full-time for seven years.

    Yes, some change majors — but so many times that they are around for 7 years? They’d have to change majors in senior year, and from engineering to acting or some such. And changing majors from engineering to acting DEFINITELY makes them stupid. :-)

    I didn’t bring Sarah Palin into the equation; the poster to whom I was responding did. In my response, I TOOK SARAH PALIN’S SIDE — I said I doubted Sarah Palin actually spent 7 years in full-time study. (And I just looked it up — she did NOT study full-time for 7 years. She studied for 8 semesters, which equals the normal time to graduate — 4 years of full time, study. The only oddity is that she did it at 4 different colleges)

    And if you were as great at reading comprehension as you are at tossing insults, you would have noticed that I said FULL-TIME study. The vast majority of those who are working their way through school, which I assume includes Sarah Palin, generally do not study FULL-TIME, for which colleges usually require a minimum of 12 to 15 credits per semester and 2 full-time semesters per year.

    So I stand by my statement. If it takes someone 7 years to get through college while studying FULL-TIME, that means they have failed or withdrawn from enough classes to comprise three full years of full-time study (or, mathematically, failed nearly half of their classes), which, given what goes on in American colleges today, makes someone pretty damn dumb.

    That actually doesn’t follow from my logic at all. I explicitly predicated my comment on one taking seven years of full-time study to get through college. I don’t believe any of Rush, Gates, or Jobs even hung around for four.

    Look, there are a lot of reasons to despise Obama, but this story about him surrendering his license for wrongdoing is just BS that makes us look stupid.

    Both Obamas went “inactive” on their law licenses when their positions no longer required law licenses. They can reactivate their licenses at any time and a cursory look at the Illinois Bar website reveals that. Going inactive is not an uncommon thing to do — I have had friends do it when they no longer needed an active license .I wish I could do it, it would save me $2000 a year in bar fees and CLE.

    I put my head down on my desk and cried on both days of the bar exam. And yes, by the end of the day the room did smell like a dog kennel. And for me, that room was the Jacob Javits Center so there were 5000 people in it taking the bar.

    And you probably had to article for a year too, didn’t you? Canada has IMHO a much better system for legal licensure.

    Obama did have a license, he just retired it when he went to Congress. People who don’t understand the process of legal licensure are trying to spin it into either “he never had a law license” or “he was disbarred.” no attention to that strawman behind the curtain.

    Having taken and passed as well, I agree with you that her having stuck in there for multiple tries says something good about her — and we would probably also agree that the bar exam has just about zero to do with how good a lawyer you will be once you get out in practice and become an expert in your area of law.

    Actually, having taken the bar (and yes, passed the first time) and having first hand knowledge of how extremely difficult a test it is, I would say that it’s not unheard of for a smart person to have to take the bar multiple times to pass. It IS unheard of for a smart person to take seven years to complete college if they are going full-time.

    So I would have to say that you have to be infinitely dumber to take seven years to go through college (assuming you are a full-time student for those seven years, which I assume Palin was not), than to take the bar five times.

    Too many young Americans are growing up with a huge sense of entitlement and no conscience.

    True dat. I truly hope the roommate who did the videotaping and his accomplice are suffering from mountains of shame now, or they truly are sociopaths. I'm of course sorry this thread is turning into a place for the dead kid's homosexuality to be discussed, but what can you do...there are some here with no conscience either.

    Along the lack of shame and conscience road, though -- I just heard from a law professor friend who was visited by one of his students recently. The student was complaining that the short lead time which he was given to write an essay made it impossible for his father to proofread it before he handed it in, and his father had always proofread all his papers. LAW SCHOOL. THIS KID IS IN GRADUATE EDUCATION. (1) He should have been ashamed to admit his Dad still proofread his homework and (2) He should have been wwaaaaayyy to ashamed to say anything about it to a professor.

    Would you prefer I called O’Donell a liar and Paladino an adulterer? That’s not name calling, that’s just facts.

    Nobody is interested in any one's private, bedroom behavior either, so you can drop that little anti-conservative lie. Nobody? What about the crowd here on FR that wants all forms of birth control banned? I was just over on a thread where that exact theory was presented.
