Tough Questions

Would you do crystal meth if it were legalized?
Ummm probably that's be a NO. Sure I mentioned Ecstacy sounded interesting to my mother and she slapped me upside the head, Gibb's style (NCIS people), a few weeks ago but that's just cause water turning colors in your eyes sounds freaky. Sorry, off topic...NO!

Abortion, for or against?
It most cases I am against it. But in certain cases, medically necessary, rape, etc, I think it is up to the mother. None of us should be able to judge a woman who is raped and does not want to feel her rapists baby grow inside of her. We didnt' have to go through what she did, so we have no room to judge.

Would the country fall if there was a woman president?
No, not at all. We just need to find the RIGHT one. No I do NOT think Hilary should ever be President, we need a strong woman with real smarts and a solid head on her shoulders.

Do you believe in the death penalty?
Yes. Even if you don't watch the news, if you watch dramas you see what kinds of things are being done to people. And the people who perform these disgusting acts do not deserve to have a healthy happy life where they are being payed for to have 3 square meals a day and access to libraries, etc. The homeless don't get enough of that! I do believe that all death penalties should use the more humane methods, like lethal injection. Hanging or electrocution is disgusting. We should not lower ourselves to the level of the criminal, so do not torture a torturer.

Do you wish marijuana would be legalized already?
Only for health reasons, sorry. Sure it IS a plant, but it makes people stupid and when stupid people are behind the wheel or have a gun, etc, they kill people.

Do you believe in God?
Yes, and Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost. And being with my loved ones for eternity in Heaven.

Do you think same sex marriage should be legalized?
This one is so hard, knowing where my church stands, but where my heart stands. I cannot be one who denies other people happiness. And by saying you don't have the right to be married to the one you love, would be taking away someones happiness. So I have to go Swiss and be nuetral on this. It is too hard.

Do you think it's wrong so many Hispanics are moving to the USA?
Uhhh no. The US is a melting pot. I am Australian, German, Irish, Czech and New Zealand, would I have wanted someone limiting the amount of my people into the US? No!! As long as they do it legally, then Welcome! If you enter illegally, then yeah I am pissed. Americans need the jobs you are stealing.

A 12 year old girl has a baby...should she keep it?
No, I don't think so. You are not responsible enough at 12 to raise a child correctly. She showed that by having sex at such a ridiculous age, and by getting pregnant in the first place. There are millions of couples who can't have children, that would be so much better for this baby.

Should the alcohol drinking age be lowered to 18?
NO!! They can't even STOP kids from getting to liquor under 21 now. Do we want even more deaths because of alcohol, whether it be drunk drivers or alcohol poisoning? No. I say RAISE the age, drinking is stupid.

Should the war in Iraq be called off?
Yes, we have lost enough Americans in a war I am not sure is any of our business anymore.

Assisted suicide is you agree?
I think it depends on the situation. If you are seriously ill, fighting a disease, that will probably take your life in the end and are in PAIN all the time, I think you should be allowed to get help to stop the pain. I don't believe in suicide, but in this instance, why are you fighting someone in court who is screaming in agony at the pain? Why are you prosecuting the son or daughter who finally caved and helped their parent who was in such agony, they asked something of their child they would never ask in any other circumstance? This is a matter that is so I don't believe in suicide, but could I understand it in these situations? Yes. Would it enter my mind if I was the one in such agony? Yes. So this is not black and white, it has such a large gray area.

Do you believe in spanking your children?
Well I hated a spanking so I'd like to say no, but have no idea what I'd do as a parent. Especially in the heat of the moment. What if your kid ran out into the road and almost got hit by a car, I could totally get why a parent would spank that kid as they dragged them away, their fear would be so strong in that moment, knowing they almost lost that child. Or what if your child accidentally endangered another? I don't know. I would like to say NO, but I am not a parent so I have no clue as to how I'd punish my child.

Would you burn the American flag for a million dollars?
No. It is the symbol of our country, and what we stand for. Anyone who offers you the money to do that is evil and against your country and fellow Americans.

A mother is declared innocent after murdering her 5 children in a temporary insanity case...what do you think?
Innocent?! No, she killed her children. I don't care if you have Post-Partum, etc. You were still the one who murdered your children. And FIVE of them! It's not like you saw after child one...what did I do? No, you kept going!! Would it be okay with one child? NO!! And we ARE talking murder here. There is no accidental manslaughter, etc. If you accidentally ran your child over in the driveway because they ran behind you and you couldn't stop or something, that is different, I am sorry, but it is. But MURDER? No, you intentionally killed your child and should be treated like a criminal. Even if you were mentally unstable, you should still be punished, put in a facility, etc, but you still killed them and need to pay for those actions. Innocent?!! I don't think so.

Great answers, Wendy. I agreed with the majority of them.

And you're brave to tackle these subjects. I don't talk politics or really talk religion on my blog, because they can turn very ugly, very quickly.

LadyStyx said...

I, too, agreed with a great deal of your answers.

Mary@Holy Mackerel said...

I pretty much agree with all you've said.

Great post!

Lee said...

Well my thoughts are...
I was always thinking about ecstacy, but I would never try it personally.
I watched a long documentary on legalizing medical marajuana. I agree with it.
And I agree with the death penalty.
