In america, where conservatives oppose sex education, birth control, and abortion (all steps in preventing pregnancy other than just not having sex), but expect poor people to not have sex and reproduce so that they don't have to pay more taxes that they can afford because America, even the poor people are among the richest people in the world.

I don't think liberals think maturity and patriotism is old fashioned and quaint. I think they think that conservatives need to face the issues without opening the bible. Let the hypocrisy stand that conservatives oppose same sex marriage, while all of their elected officials that engage in affairs engage in homosexual affairs, while liberal officials who have engaged in affairs, engage in heterosexual affairs. Just some irony for thought.

In countries where abortion is illegal, the abortion rates are just as high as they are in countries where abortion is legal. Countries that highly advocate and support the use of birth control have lower abortion rates and teen pregnancy rates. Not only does the US have the highest teen pregnancy rate out of all developed nations, but the majority of girls under the age of 16 have had 4 sex partners. RIGHT OR WRONG abortions WILL occur. It seems to me that the problem is education and PREVENTION. If you want people to stop having abortions, give them birth control. Do you support birth control and sex ed? Because if we're going to stereotype ideologies here, (Look, I can do it too), most ignorant republicans don't.

Not all people are fully mentally capable in all regards, not all people have full vision, full hearing. Fires are unexpected. Let's say you were a college student, or you were being interviewed for a new job position, and you went into a building you had never been in before, or to a part of that building you never had been in before and a fire started. Now let's say you are expected to remember what turns along the way you took, and where the exits were, in a smoke filled room while you can't breathe or see very well, at the very least. Just think about it.

I read it as, for every penny the oil company profits (2 cents apparently) the state adds 24 cents of tax for the consumer, not the company. So that means you, as a person that buys gas, has to pay that money, not it getting taken away from the oil company profit.
