Join Date: Apr 2010
Location: Milpitas, CA
Abortion: pro-choice 1st trimester, pro-life 3rd trimester, somewhere in between 2nd trimester
Drinking age: arbitrary number
Political stance: liberal, mostly Democrat
Selective Service: I'm not male, so it hasn't come up, but *bleep* the draft
Gay marriage: any two adults should be permitted to marry
Universal pre-k: I am not sure whether universal K+ is working..
Sex education: should be mandatory
Vaccinations: I am FOR them
Sin Tax: good idea, I happily pay it when relevant
legalization of marijuana: FOR it, it is a valuable medicine and a less harmful recreational drug
Universal Health care: FOR it, we need this desperately
"performance pay" for teachers: provided the performance is not BS, it is a great idea
war: against it in most cases
Methods of birth control: I am FOR birth control! Sigh.. maybe in 20 years this issue will be a no-brainer
How many kids people should have: <4, if you are me <=2
Vegetarian/eating meat: let people eat meat but I prefer to eat as little of it as possible
gun control: I hate guns and wish they'd all evaporate
death penalty: for it
circumcision: we practice(d) it and will again if we have another son
Fertility treatments/Assisted reproduction: should be paid for out of pocket if not primary/first kid
Assisted suicide: beats regular suicide.. we let other animals cease to suffer, but not humans.. doesn't sound right to me
Illegal Immigrants *not immigration POLICY: as individuals, I judge each person separately.. but I am not happy with the poor craftsmanship by certain illegals who are employed in construction, and I am not happy with poor service in other industries..
Gender Selection: not a good idea in any place where either gender is more favorable
Fat Tax: depends on what.. if on things fat people are going to actually cost more money for, then perhaps. And I say this as a formerly obese person who fights obesity daily, and not just some judgmental skinny person.
Shopping Carts: are a good idea to use in stores
Kids drinking soda/eating candy/poptarts for breakfast: the first two should be served rarely, the third at least pretends to be fortified
Peanut Butter bans in schools for nut allergies: sucks but if my kid were the allergic one I'd hope the school administration would want to keep him alive
VBACs: if you want one, have one
Government involvement in citizens' lives: the government is very involved in our lives, depending on which half of the political crap pile you are on. I prefer the Democratic method.
Seat Belt law/ laws to protect citizens from themselves: haha, I heard of at least one militant anti-seat-belter who would've had his life saved if he'd not been such a jerk about it.. just saying.
Unassisted Childbirthing: is not for me
Plastic Surgery: is mostly not for me and should be paid for out of pocket in frivolous cases
Chili (with or without beans): beans, of course!
Welfare: is often misused and gives people a bad impression of users of it
dress codes for school/office: should include COMFORTABLE clothing.. who on Earth thought people could work efficiently in stiff suits and itchy nylons? Not to mention collared shirts, ties, button-up shirts.. horrors. I don't even care what it LOOKS like; it feels bad.
Elective C-sections/elective repeat C-Sections: I trust what my doctor says in my case and think families should do similar, or their own research if they do not trust.
Introducing solids: I trusted what my son's doctor said (5mo) and it worked for us
Car Seats: For
Children and Pets: should be nice to each other
Nursing in Public: For
Cry it Out: I am for it in theory but against it in practice
Television and Infants/Toddlers: it's been a really good babysitter for a child who wants constant stimulation
Caring for your elderly parents: against, but that pertains to ME caring for MY parents
Diamonds: look pretty in the center of my wedding ring set
In-N-Out Burger: is absolutely delicious and the closest thing to real food you will find at fast food joints
Reborn dolls: never heard of them; sounds scary
Homosexual orientation/relationships: I believe that being gay is part of being you, if you are gay.
Polyamory: a cross between "it could work for me if I weren't with someone who prefers monogamy" and "dear God, that would just be the biggest cluster*bleep* ever"
Scary movies: not for me; not entertaining
Transcultural adoption: any adoption of children who need it is a **** good thing; let the newly married gay coupled in there first.
Drug testing welfare recipients: I'm being all heartless again, but I think that if one must pass a drug test for employment, one must pass one for free money.
"Luxuries" on welfare- vacation, designer accessories, upscale phones, TV w/cable, etc: against
Organized religions: against
Mandatory breastfeeding attempts/prescriptions for formula: against
Family beds: are not for us
TTC on assistance: I don't agree with it, sorry.
Infants/toddlers in bikini style swim suits: I feel sort of sick when I see this, actually
Leash backpacks for kids: are better than dead kids who didn't follow directions
Beauty pageants: against
TV watching for kids under age 2: for
