And yes, degrees should matter a little bit.
Now on to another issue: I don't know if someone has written about it yet but: Abortion, yes or no????

Also, marriage equality. Yay Massachusetts.

To me, I think it should only be legal in the case of possible harm (like death) to the mother or after rape, or before a certain point in the pregnancy, because think about it: if you see a picture of it in the ninth or even eighth month, it looks like a baby. Now, I'm not one of those religious nuts that say it's evil and if you think otherwise you're going to hell, but there's a certain point that I don't think it's right. Because think about: it's not the fetus's fault that you were stupid enough to get pregnant when you didn't want to in the first place. Why should it be punished?

How about a compromise and having like a first-week-only "post facto birth control" option? But it has to come with counseling and other support. And we'll boost support for orphanages, adoption agencies, women who have to give birth, etc.

I also believe that people should make money based on how much they work, and that the rich should be taxed more than the middle class or poor. (I'm part socialist =)
I would still like to know why you think that the rich should be taxed more. If I am not mistaken the taxes here are based off a percentage of what you make, so even if they are making more money, they also pay more taxes. Here in the US anyways.
Framm, with the work deal, I think that's a good idea, but don't start it at 16. High school doesn't even end until you're 18, and most people tend to go to uni afterwards. If you have no intentions of going back to school, then you should get a job, but if you're family-less and getting a PhD, you shouldn't be forced to work through it. I think once you've gotten a degree you're satisfied with, you should have at least 2 years to chill, and then get a job, or attempt. ..But, what do we do with people that thought? It doesn't seem right to throw them in jail.
I just threw numbers out there, if someone wants to get a job out there at 16 then let them. College is the same way, if they want a job, they cn have it. I am not so sure on the 2 year relaxing though, it would be kind of hard to feed yourself let alone pay for rent and stuff if they don't have a job.
They don't go to jail, just the government will not grant them any kind of welfare. They would have to give documentation that they applied for the job and give numbers for the jobs that they were given interviews for, they would only be checked after a certain time period to make sure that they are not just job hunting to stay on welfare.
Oh and I am for a mandatory 3 year Military stint, then you could stay in or remove yourself from the military. That way everyone has some military experience just in case.
This seems like a wishlist of how society should run (I may be wrong, but that is just how it seems). I am not getting into the whole abortion thing again, there is a whole thread devoted to it.

Framm: I live in the US, and I remember Bush's tax cuts for the rich. NOT cool. I just don't want something like that, and I want the percentage to increase the higher you go. For ex., 25% for rich, 8% or lower for middle, nearly nil, maybe 1%, for poor. And military shouldn't be mandatory. If war is made illegal, there wouldn't be a need for a military anyway =). I still think my idea with the illegal immigrants would work; until they're legal, they have to serve. It should scare them away. I agree with you about the welfare thing; only help those who attempt to, or do, help themselves.

Unreality, but what about if the woman just *didn't* know? By your own argument, the first week is no different from the first trimester. An abortion is a serious decision, and the woman will need time to think it out. The point is it ISN'T a human, it ISN'T alive, and it DOES NOT have rights. Most pregnancy tests don't even work until a week or two after conception. By the same standards, you might as well make male masturbation illegal and female menstruation, because every time either happens a potential life is killed. There's no difference when the sperm and the egg meet, it's the same potential, but it isn't a person.
By all means, don't criminalize the morning after pill or anything, but abortions are.. I guess "good" ways of rectifying stupid mistakes. Idk.. Women will STILL get them, or women will give birth to their baby and kill it. *shrug* I think that's a lot worse.
