My family thinks I'm naive because I'm a democrat?
I am 16 years old and for practically my entire life I have been naturally a liberal democrat, aside from the majority of my family who are conservative republicans. They are VERY racist, sexist, homophobic, bigoted, violent, and extremely hypocritical of the world they live in and the fact that they are supposedly christian. I am Christian myself, and they are always saying how being a leftist and christian do not go together, even though they believe in spreading hatred towards those who are different from them and having the military bomb people. Every night they constantly argue with me about who I am and they've even said how they just know everything and that I know absolutely nothing. I became more well informed about politics over the internet, because I don't know any liberals that I can talk to and therefore my parents both think I'm stupid and wrong just because I got my knowledge off of people over the internet instead of someone with the same beliefs in real life, which is NO different, whatsoever. Plus they don't believe that you can get facts off the internet which to me is just ridiculous. They always call me names and every single belief I have they consider liberal, even beliefs on spaying and neutering animals, which has absolutely nothing to do with politics!
Why is my husband so naive?
seek couples counseling NO medicine. If they say take medicine go some where else. If things are minor I usually just wouldn't even give it a second thought. If it is major I just fix it the best way and that's it. Maybe this will be a good method for you guys. Always reinforce it with Love Also I see premarital counseling working.Church usually has it for free. You can even attend after marriage. Make sure no medicines. Arguing is normal but is it good, no, so make sure it is 7 years no arguments. After 7 solid years of perfect marriage then another child if desired. If things are minor I usually just wouldn't even give it a second thought. If it is major I just fix it the best way and that's it. Maybe this will be a good method for you guys. Always reinforce it with Love On another note: Try your best. Love like you never love before. This is the best way for love to come and start surrounding your life. May love be around you, through you and is you. Love and the Good Life will come P.S. Email me if you have another further statements email@example.com P.P.S.

Is it illegal to cross state lines to meet a minor?
How do you know this "friend"? If he's somebody you met on the Internet, don't meet him at this concert. He has no business meeting anyone that's under 20 anywhere, for ANYTHING. But he's a man preying on a young, naive girl, and he knows exactly what he's doing. If he's a family friend, or somebody you already know, it's not illegal to meet a friend across state lines, as long as you're not the one crossing them. It IS illegal to meet a minor with false pretenses, or with the intentions of having sex with her, which is what I guarantee this 30 year old pervert has on his mind.
My mother in law told me a ugly family secret than asked me not to tell my husband?
My in laws came for a visit from England to see their grand kids and my husband. The night before they left my husband and his dad took the kids to see a movie and it was just me and her. She loves the whiskey alot (says its because of the scots in her but I think she is just a alcoholic) anyway she became very upset while looking at pictures of our son because she commented on how much he looks like my husband. Than she said quite plainly " my sons father is not Henry" which is my father in law. I was shocked and really didn't say anything she went on to admit that his dad is actually my father in laws brother. Than she started crying and begged me not to say anything. I didn't promise anything. She also said that my father in law doesn't know the truth. I do not know what to do because now I know this ugly family secret and they got to leave and I am stuck in Texas with my husband knowing this and I am so confused on what to do. Most of me tells me I cant keep this from my husband but this will hurt both my husband and his father they are very close. Please any advice would be helpful but i am pretty sure i cant keep this from him.
Where do you draw the line between charity and duty?
I'm basing this off Peter Singer's philosophy. If we see a young girl drowning with no one else around, we feel an obligation to save her. Correct? This is not charity. This is seen as a moral obligation; an absolute duty. Allowing her to die would be immoral. Agreed? Because so many people in developing nations are dying from not having their basic needs met (water, food, shelter, clothing) and because we consume so many unnecessary things: do we have a duty to give more? I'm not talking about $20 here and there, I mean as much as we can give where we can still have our basic needs met and live a very happy and comfortable life. So to re-cap: it is morally wrong to NOT save someone when it is within our power to do so; one might say it is our duty. We have the power to save many lives by adjusting our amount of consumption, and thus giving the extra and unneeded money to others, yet we do not do it. Is that immoral? Are we denying our duty? Why is it an obligation to save a child when we are able, but not save a child thousands of miles away when we are just as able? Thoughts.
What to do with a trifling friend.?
wow you just described like the same thing that happened to me basically, there was this girl i talked to all the time online and he found out, ( ive been friends with him since the 6th grade and we are now sophomores in high school) well i have reason to believe that he likes her, he is amazing at lying especially on the spot, he told this girl that i was obsessed with her and like i wanted to kill him once so im dangerous and the only reason he is telling her this is to protect her, well i found this all out because recently he was spreading rumors about me being a psycho because i was mean to him, i said his jersey smelt like **** so hes being a little ***** about it) when my friend told him that i talked to her online not long after wards i noticed they were talking to what sounded like they were referring to me, within the next 24 hours of him telling her all of this through my connections with people i was in his face book and e mail reading this ****, even had proof of him possibly being gay since he was exchanging nude photos with a male, i read their entire conversation on face book, i was angry, i wanted to smash his face into a locker, how could he betray such a long friendship and go as far as making up disturbing content to ruin any chance of girlfriend. I was going to change his passwords and use the proof that he was gay and put it on his facebook, but my friends told me that i was being no better then him and they said they told him i forgot about the entire thing, he began getting upset, he backed off, its been a month and 9 days, every time he sees me he backs off, im willing to throw away our friendship because he betrayed me, he had changed since the middle school person i befriended long ago, so i was ok with no longer being friends, my friends still hang out with him even though he did this, so we will have to be in the same room for long periods of time, but i don't make eye contact and i don't speak to him. They say fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me. Well he had already caused me to stop hanging out with a group of friends for about a year 2 years ago, don't get fooled twice like i did, i hung out with a different group of friends til things cooled down. The thing is real friends don't do stuff like that, so she is not really even ur friend anymore. Any way that's what i do and i don't forgive him because he wont learn not to mess with your friends.
