I have no problem with this lady breast feeding in public but what gets me is her saying some people find it sexual and that’s something wrong with them. Doesn’t she understand that the sexual aspect of this IS HER BREASTS? Not the baby’s big ass head Woman are sometimes too cavalier about understanding the sexual nature of men, I believe.

Conspiracies in Religions
When I came to ATS, I was looking for answers to what is really going on in the world. But, in the process, I have had my Religious Belief Systems challenged. For the past few years, I have experienced a Deprogramming of False Belief Systems. This has been a painful experience. Believe me when I tell you, its pretty depressing to find out what you have lived and made life decisions on for 50 years is nothing but BS (Belief Systems). I found out that these belief systems were installed only to control me. They had nothing to do with the truth. Im still deprogramming, It might take another 50 to undo the brainwashing. So, Ive spent a vast amount of time wallowing in emotions that just suck, Fear of Gods reprisal if I question what I was taught, guilt and...

The State of Maine has recently re-added a "work" requirement to be eligible for food stamps. It seems this requirement has been "exempted" over the past few years because of a clause in the Federal law from 1996. Maine has experienced a massive awe-inspiring drop in food stamp spending. Other...
