Practicing and preaching

"Palin said when running for governor in 2006 that she would support funding for abstinence-only education in schools, according to Eagle Forum Alaska, a conservative group that sent a questionnaire asking gubernatorial candidates their views on a range of issues."

Not to be snide, but if Palin's own daughter (who I can safely assume had the abstinence talk repeatedly, given her parents' view on the matter) still got pregnant at the edge of 17, isn't it just possible that abstinence-only education doesn't work? Either that or the Palins are so uptight about sex that it was never mentioned. Either way, any one who believes that the "no sex" talk actually works has missed the boat. And the idea that sex education encourages teens to have sex has repeatedly been proven false. Better to know about safe sex practices than stumble around in the dark and end up pregnant too young.

Either way, this is going to be one hell of an entertaining election.

Encouraging my immorality:

Digitalverein - Zu Hause2
(clicky clicky bump bump)

Fugees - The Score
(did they vanish like...)

Black Sun Empire - Driving Insane
(rip roaring dnb)

Ocosi - Untitled
(because it's so good, it doesn't need one)
