2019 Donation Drive

It's time for our annual Server Donation Drive! We need to raise at least $650 (same as last year) to keep The Cauldron's server online for another year. Please help! Either hit that Paypal button to the right and make a one-time donation in any amount or set up a monthly Bronze, Silver or Gold Donor subscription. You can find more info in this message!

Donations as of 16 Sept 2019: $660 donated. $10 more our minimum goal! Let's beat last year's total of $99 more than the minimum!


Note: This total is updated manually, usually once a day


* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

I wholeheartedly approve of this method of highlighting the inherent misogyny, condescension, and paternalism of the anti-choice/anti-contraception crowd's rhetoric.

Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away.

Agreed. This is a good way to highlight it.

Other than I suspect you don't need a new law, it's a pretty good tactic.  I suspect that the Federal HHS Secretary could issue a regulation to the same effect without additional enabling legislation beyond the power granted under Obamcare.

I don't think the idea is to actually pass the law, but to show the opponents of access to birth control for the hypocrites they usually are.

State Senator Nina Turner rules! I love how the report does nothing but deliver the news with a straight face.
The first song sets the wheel in motion / The second is a song of love / The third song tells of Her devotion / The fourth cries joy from the sky above
The fifth song binds our fate to silence / and bids us live each moment well / The sixth unleashes rage and violence / The seventh song has truth to tell
The last song echoes through the ages / to ask its question all night long / And close the circle on these pages / These, the metamythos songs
