I don't commment much on abortion because I don't have a womb. I cannot have abortions. I can't give birth. I am male. I think that each decision is in the hands of the woman who owns the womb.

I think that the sanctimony of some "pro-lifers" is absolutely disgusting. Once the baby is born, no one gives a damn...especially if the baby is any or all of the following:

a child of color
a girl
mentally retarded

That is why it was heartening to see an anti-abortion group and the ACLU in support of the same single teacher that got fired for being pregnant. from the original ABC News article:

"If you take away the resources, you could unintentionally drive a woman to having an abortion," said Foster.

"It is not pro-life to take away the resources and support that women need and deserve to bring children into this world," Foster says. "The appropriate response for the employer when they found out she was pregnant, is to say, 'Congratulations,' and, 'How can I help?' "

Here's an interesting insight into the impetus behind most abortions:

A 2004 survey by the Guttmacher Institute, a research organization that supports abortion rights but is cited by both sides in the abortion wars as having reliable data, indicated that 73 percent of those seeking an abortion were doing so because they could not afford to have a baby.

"We have to systematically eliminate the reasons that drive women to abortions, and the root causes are lack of resources and lack of support," Foster says. "Women deserve both."

Why do I believe women have a choice? I respect women as equal human beings, capable of intelligent thought. That's really it. As my man, Butterfly says of Digable Planets in La Femme Fetal on their first album reachin'(a new refutation of time and space):
Hey pro-lifers need to dig themselves
because life don't stop after birth
and to a child born to the unprepared
it might even just get worse

Yahoo! Sports : Why Figure Skating is Not A Sport

This article talks about why figure skating is not a sport.

Sooo, by his logic, Division I-A college football isn't a sport either. All of the people who determine the championship (or computers whose algorithm had to be written by someone) are not players...they are pretty much judges too. The BCS is like that horrible French judge from a few years back...

Why Heads Might Not Respect K-Fed

According to this article, Kevin Federline (who is currently married to Brittney Spears) states that he is being criticized because "He hates his children, he treats his wife like dirt, he gets high all day." and because he's white.

Eminem (and 3rd Bass and the Beastie Boys before him) proved that you can be white and rock the M.I.C.. Skills are skills. You will, however, face increased scrutiny because you are of the Caucasian persuasion and because you haven't shown us much.

You can dance, though. But, people haven't heard enough of your stuff to have a decision one way or the other...

You have a very high potential for being wack. When you are new, just do what you do and see what happens. There's no need to be arrogant. I know y'all are thinking "What about Kanye?". Kanye had bangers for other folks before he did his own thing. People still bang H.O.V.A.(Izzo) so he has a history of really good work. So far, he has lived up to his own hype.

But, time will tell...but, if the first joint is the strongest you have...goodbye Mr. will be placed in the Rob Van Winkle Wing of the Hip-Hop Hall of Fame.

Now, like Seahawks Fan in Bronco Land, I hate Skip Bayless. He's an arrogant prick who thinks his crap smells like roses and cinnamon. But, in this article, he does tell the truth.

Seattle got screwed. Hard. Here's a list of entities that beat the Seahawks:
1) The referees
2) The Seattle Seahawks

Note that the Steelers weren't on that list. 39 Super Bowls and no REALLY bad calls. Guess they were saving it for 40. eXtra Lousy officiating.

DMX and Avis...We Try Harder, Dog

I had The Weather Channel on for ambient noise and I hear DMX's "Ruff Ryder's Anthem" (STOP! DROP! SHUT 'EM DOWN OPEN UP SHOP!) on a commercial for...Avis?!?!

This is more shocking than seeing OJ come back to doing Hertz commercials. Imagine that...all of the women that would have said "Go OJ Go!" would be saying "NO OJ NO!".

I am glad that I am not in advertising. People would be messed up for life watching my commercials.

You are NOT the father...

Our state Supreme Court is determining verdicts like this when they should force schools to find remedies for funding.

What this ruling basically says that if a potential father presents DNA evidence that he is not the father of a child(ren), he no longer has to pay child support. Previously, the law said that the father had a year or else they would be treated as the father.

I think that this is how it should be. I am a father that contributes to the well-being of my son...key word being MY son. I don't think that men should have to pay, under any circumstances, for someone else's child unless they choose to.
