Do you think that gay marriage should be legal?
This is a non-question. Of.fucking.course.
Do you think that gays should be allowed to seve in the military?
Seriously? We are now post don’t ask, don’t tell. Clearly the answer is yes.
What do you think about people who don’t believe in god?
I think they are a lot like me. Or they’re not. Some days, hours, minutes I believe and others I don’t. I want to. I desperately envy blind faith. But envy does not a believer make.
Are you pro life or pro choice?
Yes. Who exactly is anti-life? But yes, I absolutely 100% believe in a woman’s right to choose what happens to her body.
Do you think we should test on animals?
I believe that cosmetic or psychological testing on animals is total bullshit. I can’t actually even think about it too long or I’ll freak the fuck out. But I do believe that humans should be valued above animals and will take whatever consequence is dealt to me should animals end up of having control of the afterlife. If it’s necessary to potentially save human lives, then yes.
How do you feel about illegal immigration?
I don’t really have a strong opinion on it. I am, however, a social worker and a party gal at heart. I say, the more the merrier.
Do you think it is ethical to do stem cell research?
I not only think it’s ethical to do so, I think it’s ridiculous not to. See animal testing reasoning above.
Should be get rid of the death penalty?
This is the most complicated issue, in my opinion. I feel that the death penalty could actually be more humane and more of a crime deterrent, were it not such a long, drawn out procedure and a financial drain on the system. I can’t even begin to imagine how you survive a lifetime in prison. There is no hope, no end, no real life at that point. So I think I’d choose to be zapped or shot up or whatever it is they do these days.
But, what happens if the person turns out to be innocent? There’s no pardoning in the afterlife. Or maybe that’s where the only true pardoning occurs. I just blew your mind there, didn’t I?
How about giving them a choice? Horrific, miserable life in prison or quick and painless death. Do they get cake in prison?
Is torture ever acceptable?
Yes. I think I must have become morally questionable as I grow more and more aged, and I certainly would not be capable of doing it myself, but I think the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the one sometimes(thank you, Star Trek). To save lives sometimes a little blood has to be shed. Wow, I think I watched a little too much Homeland this year.
Should the government have a say on our diets?
What? Hell no. The government needs to back off. Just because we happened to born in the USA, or have become naturalized citizens here, doesn’t mean that the government is our third parent. They can set up laws that benefit the nation and the populace at large, but need to back up off of policing the individuals for habits and/or behaviors that aren’t harming anyone but the self.
When we turn 18 or 12 or 30 and leave our parent’s home, we become adults and as such earn the right to make whatever poor decisions we choose. Smoking, drinking, gambling, department store credit. WE get those choices, not Sam(dude’s not my uncle). No matter how stupid or harmful they may be.
Should the alcoholic drinking age be increased or decreased?
I think they should decrease the drinking age and increase the driving age. Meet in the middle-ish at 18? Idiots are going to drink, regardless of the law. Let’s stop worrying so much about minors under the influence and worry instead about any sort of dangerous activities related to substance use. If the minor is drinking and driving, slap on the cuffs. If he’s just sharing a brewski with his homies, back the fuck off. Really, what difference does that three years make? Kids are still idiots at 21. Might as well let them legally prove it.
Should cigarette smoking be banned?
As a ex-smoker of 20 years, I say hell yeah. I am always thrown by smokers these days. I’m like, really? People still smoke? But, as that 20 year smoker, I’d often say you’ll have to pry these cigarettes from my cold, dead, cancer ridden hands.
Obviously no. I support the right of the individual to do whatever stupid thing they want and that includes death by nicotine. Smoke ‘em if you got ‘em, just keep it away from me please. And, if I love you, please stop smoking right now. Please.
