Who Do You Trust?

We contend that we are in relationship with everything. You are in relationship with your community, your job and your country and, if so, this entire election season has been a very long, drawn out process of playing “The Bachelor” with America. In the beginning we had a bunch of choices from the right ranging from a homophobic extremist to a Pizza Mogul and even a woman! Now we are down to the final two. We take them home to meet our parents and then we need to make a decision.

More On The War

We have been fighting in Afghanistan for 11 years. We have almost 60,000 troops overseas fighting this horrible war. We are also fighting a different war in this country, The War on Women. You may argue that unlike Afghanistan, the War on Women does not exist or at least there would be no casualties. I disagree. One of the prongs of The War on Women is systematically taking away a woman’s right to choose. We know that Romney has stated he would repeal Roe v Wade. We know the Ryan has introduced legislation redefining rape as forcible and legitimate while also introducing ‘personhood’ legislation.

Politics And Relationships

If you are a loyal reader of CoupleDumb, you may have noticed that we have gotten a little political lately.

These posts use to get 3x the traffic of our regular posts. But still, we kept it to one day unless of course something completely ridiculous happened. After the first year, we tried to palliate our tone. Lee tried not to write

A Minute To Heal

We propose at 12pm (Noon) EST, we all take a minute to state our intentions of healing whether you pray, meditate, chant to God, Brahma, Buddha, Allah, Yahweh, Tara, Mother Earth, Sister Moon or the Universe.

Pro-Life Is Not Pro Life

When someone says they are Pro-Choice, it is assumed that they are pro-abortion. The two can be mutually exclusive. However, if you identify yourself as Pro-Life, there are certain understandings that that includes. A person who is Pro-Life believes that life begins at conception and that that life is sacred. They believe that an unborn child is a victim and abortion is murder. They believe that every pregnancy should come to term barring some exceptions for some. The only exceptions that are mentioned are life of the mother and/or rape and incest. What is the most interesting part of the Pro-Life stand is that even though they insist on a woman carrying the baby to term, the Pro-Life movement does not go beyond the womb!
