    If my family is any indicator, our birthrate is plummeting anyway. My grandmother (a devout Catholic) had five children and seventeen grandchildren. My mother had one grandchild. Among the five...

    Most of us here are far beyond parenting age, it seems, but I still hold that pressuring people to reproduce is rarely a Good Thing.

    Your history resonated strongly with me; it was very similar to mine. I've long thought reincarnation would be fine if I could just skip the childhood part. I had far from a horrible childhood, but...

    I liked Michael Steele and Steve Schmidt before Trump darkened the skyline, so I'm happy they're "Never Trumpers."

    This administration is by far the most corrupt, inept, and morally repugnant of any I've experienced in my long life; we would be complicit if we sat on our hands as if it embodied business as usual....

    I'm not sure what "far left" means, but I consider,say, Bernie Sanders far more honorable than many of his right-wing colleagues. Being honorable, to me, means having unshakeable principles that...

    I know several young people who don't seem in any hurry to reproduce, or have declared themselves opposed to having children, and none of them have cited climate change. I think personal freedom and...

    The Mueller Report was hampered by the united front Trump and his stonewalling henchmen presented, even though--is it six of them?--have been convicted now. It really is like a crime family.

    I think prominent Republicans are so blinded by greed that the end always justifies the means. I knew people in school like that--they'd cheat even when they didn't need to, just to keep their edge....

    The whistle blower has done his/her job. It's not up to him/her to provide backup to the investigators. There's plenty of corroborating evidence without exposing him/her to the real dangers (death...

    I've never understood pressuring others to have children. I would think the best-case scenario would be that every child born was very much wanted by their parents. The world would certainly be a...

    Geila's pictures are lovely. The house I grew up in was Craftsmanlike, with a similar fireplace arrangement. I don't mind the painted woodwork, which looks wonderful there.
