You think so? Huh, well I hope you're right... And my doctor's not liberal, but she's a blood relative and knows what I'm taking them for, so I'm not too worried.

Just out of curiousity, what country are you from?

Maybe you should start to get worried. I have found this site including this:
Bush Administration Goes After Non-Profits That Oppose His "Abstinence Only" Policy
Salon.com reports that "some nonprofit organizations that don't agree with the Bush administration's 'abstinence only' philosophy" have been "repeatedly investigated by the government, while faith-based groups get a free pass." Advocates for Youth, a national nonprofit that provides teens with comprehensive sex education, had never in its 18 years as a federal grantee been subject to an audit by the government. Over the past year it has been subjected to three. ....more here

I think that, if things keep on going the way they are now, a republican won't be elected again. What we need is a Democrat with guts. Or  Howard Dean.

I can't imagine (heh.) if Republicans take over our music, movies, and books. That's flippin crazy! I don't want a New America, I want it to stay the same!

*heavy sigh* Y'know, I've never been a fan of the 'abstinence only' plan myself. It's so unrealistic - it's not like any of the sex-ed courses offered in high school encourage teens to go out and get laid. Mine was pretty off-putting, actually - it's scary to look at all the stuff you have to do to keep from getting all sorts of nasty diseases. Abstinence is the only failsafe way, sure, but as soon as you tell a roomfull of teenagers to NOT do something, that's the best way to ensure that they'll go out and do just that.

Well, honestly, the only reason that Bush supports the abstinence only plan is because it is definitley very safe compared to everything else. Bush just wants to keep kids safe. That's his job.

I don't think any Republican is going to take over your music, books, or movies. Trust me. If anybody was going to do that, Michael Moore and Bono would have been shot years ago. LOL. I mean, honestly, I don't think we have anything to worry about until we get a Democrat in office. They scare me.

You just have to look at Italy where the president owns all the TV and radio stations.
It wouldn't surprise me at all if Bush makes sure the TV and radio stations broadcast just good news about him and not his mistakes.

The media, aka news ppl and such, are completely and utterly against bush. so, obviously, that's not what he does. Not only is that not what he does, it's also unconstitutional... and if he DID do that, then Americans could not post on threads like this, because, obviously, its main purpose is to diss him.

And, if he did do that, i would be the first to petition for his impeachment. I shall not be blindly stripped of my rights.

*Claps.* Nicely said. LOL. Mine didn't come out that good, somehow. *Sigh.* Don't leave me again, Jess! I get so torn up on these threads by myself for a period of time.

But you can't say for sure he wouldn't do it.. Like in this case?

I understand the reasoning behind it, I just think it's unrealistic and, frankly, dangerous. It would be great if teaching abstinence in schools would actually ensure that kids wouldn't go out and do stupid things - but it won't. It might dissuade a few of them, but the ones it doesn't will be in even greater trouble than if they'd been educated about how to keep themselves safe. (Which is his job, as you pointed out - to keep them safe.) It's a fine idea in theory, but in practice it just doesn't work.

Etaeb: Oh, ease up a little - she's saying she would be against him if that turned out to be true. Couldn't you soften the blow by saying "I agree with you" before saying "you're wrong" and piling up the evidence for it?

Please don't get me wrong here
She was not wrong in my eyes. Good to hear she will be the first one to petition for his impeachment.

He wants to keep kids safe, yet he has sent thousands off to a war?
Great president, he's killing a whole generation of KIDS.

Um, not exactly. Only if you consider 'kids' to include some people ages 18 and over - that's how old you have to be around here to join the military. And as far as I know, they still haven't reinstated the draft, so it's not like they're being forced to go over there.
I'm strongly against the war anyhow - don't get me wrong. I think it's a barbaric and juvenile way to 'solve' problems, in any situation. (And of course, the above statement doesn't include any of the Iraqi people getting bombed on a regular basis.) Wars happen under good presidency to - I just want to make that point. This is not a good war - far from it. They are young people involved in it, from both sides, but most of them did choose that position. (I know a handful of ROTC folks, and they seem to like this war. I don't understand why, but they're the ones that might be fighting one day so... *shrug*)

Do you honestly think that a sixteen year old is going to listen to someone say "SEX IS BAD." and call it a day? No. I think we should have a mix between Sex-ed and abstidence.
