Topic American news media - watchdog or lapdogs?
Posted 01 Jan 2017 15:47

The NY Times seems fairly reliable, though there's a lot of opinion pieces up front. As for television, I used to think the CBC (in Canada) did a pretty decent job of presenting the news fairly objectively, but since moving to the US, I haven't seen a lot of it. As for American news channels, you need an industrial strength bullshit detector to get any useful information out of them. Fox is the worst, but the others aren't that much better (some just present bullshit that agrees more with my political point of view).

Just a guy

I have to completely agree with you about Fox. Where else could you get to hear the other side be aired? Certainly not CNN or MSNBC. But as an arch Conservative some of the Left Dribble they make me listen to just make my blood boil.

Topic Trump the Traitor - Stepping Back on Repealing Obamacare

Again to my Liberal friends why is it that when you are trying to convince the rest of us of the value of your arguments that you never give the source of the data as you state it. Like 30 percent of the revenue received by insurance companies, is retained by them. Which we know is not always true. That in some countries the cost to the taxpayer is 100-120 Euro's a month.

I would be considered a cynic if I told you it was because you are fearful that your statements will be fact checked. Without any support of your data, it appears to be specious at best.

We all know there is no European Plan by it is my understanding that many of the plans of the various countries have significant similarities.

If you really believe that our health service delivery system is so bad why do so many of the rich of the world come running to the good old U.S. when they have a serious health issue.

We all agree that our health delivery system is too costly and in my opinion it will never get any better until we get the Government and the attornies out of the system.

To 1nympholes: I'm going to ask you to do your own research on insurance companies in Healthcare. I work in the industry, and yes it is correct.. 30% of every dollar goes towards the insurance companies and they don't provide care.
The next part of your post... 53% percent of Americans pay no taxes at all, I'm wondering if you know why?


I looked at the Annual Report to the Shareholders for the Year ending December 31, 2015, from United Healthcare Group.

For the period they had Revenue of $157 Billion and generated a Net Profit of $11 Billion approximately 7% and Paid Dividend $8 Billion. You may think that is excessive but it is similar to many corporations in a wide variety of industries.

United Healthcare Group may not be typical, but I bet it is.

I've felt like this for years. America is the only industrialized nation on earth that let's insurance companies run the health care system. (I believe Switzerland has some sort of hybrid system but I may be wrong). The Affordable Healthcare Act was an attempt to get as many Americans covered by health insurance as possible, but in reality, it was a tweak of a massively broken system. The rest of the world has adopted universal health coverage and in many countries doing so is considered a human right. There may be flaws in any health care system, but universal coverage is something we should be striving towards. Unfortunately, its pretty much a non-starter in this country for 2 big reasons. First, the insurance lobby is very powerful and will never voluntarily bow out, or reduce their piece of the pie. They make massive profits in the health care industry (just ignore the fact that every dollar of profit they make is one less dollar in our system that could be helping someone, not their bottom line). Second, any sort of universal healthcare system would have to be paid for with tax dollars. Your taxes will have to go up to pay for it, and politicians will be quick to point this out (though most will completely ignore the fact that taxes will only have to go up the equivalent of what Americans pay in insurance premiums, which we will no longer have to pay, minus the 30% take of the insurance companies.) In my humble opinion, its rather arrogant of us to believe that we have it right, when in fact the rest of the world does it the other way.

As to Trump flip flopping on his repeal of Obamacare, he doesn't have much of a choice. He simply can't repeal it without putting something in its place, and like most of Trumps promises, he has nothing. This is just the first of many 180's Trump will have to do, given that just about everything he talked about in the campaign (which was very little mind you, as he spent 98% of his time talking about Hillary Clinton, not what he might do as President) is pretty much unrealistic and unattainable within 4 years, much less his first 100 days. He sold America a bill of goods, and the racist xenophobic cult of Trump bought it all. Now, you reap what you've sown.

It sounds like you too if you were the Emperor like Obama tried to be. You would do away with Insurance Companies too. Then we can all go to the Veterans Administration for our health care would that not be wonderful? I need my Birth Control prescription renewed and I understand that if I was eligible for the VA services there is a very good chance I could see someone by April or May if I applied immediately.

Using the Switzerland Model, I am sure it provides good services but at the cost of 40% of your income based on reports of Trading Economics. Remember they do not maintain a military force either. We could not believe the firestorm that would occur if this kind of tax rate was law.

My more Liberal friends seem to always forget that the government has no money only that they steal from you and me.

Remember the EU has approximate twice the population of the U.S. but their GDP is similar.

So when you do away with the Insurance Industry you will immediately increase the unemployment rolls by 2.5 million people that work in that industry reported by the Democratic Underground. I do not think I will like it the next time I am in an Automobile Accident. Those nasty insurance companies make a profit and pass it on their shareholders. I wonder who the shareholders are? Retirement Plans, Mutual Funds, or parents and grandparent trying to live out their golden years in some level of comfort. It is a reasonable guess that most of us are directly or indirectly shareholders in these nasty insurance companies.

Yes, Obama and his Socialists ideas could have provided more services by taking ALL the countries revenue, but I doubt if many of us would like the modified European Model.

Tell me just one thing the Federal Government does well and at anything approaching reasonable costs?

So you think I talk like a Capitalist, Guilty as charged.

Why should the insurance companies take 30% of every dollar and they don't provide any health services. Yes, healthcare needs to be tweaked... Start by getting rid of the insurance companies.

I am not familiar with that number that Insurance Companies take 30% of the revenue. Where did that come from? I guess that is why a number of large carriers have stopped providing Health Insurance in some states.

Topic Sex on the First Date
Posted 06 Dec 2016 12:12

I always have sex with a man on the first audition. Since I am in love and married that is all a date is about. If he can not put me into Orbit on the first date, why would I think it will be better between us on a later date?

Now, if the date is very young and inexperienced that could require an apprenticeship before he can be evaluated.

Topic Guys do you prefer a girl completely naked or with something sexy on?
Posted 05 Dec 2016 11:32

Well, I am not a guy but I have a guy and I know what he likes very well. I bet he is not that unlike many guys.

He loves to take to take me out and show me to people. A short spaghetti strapped dress, not sheer, but really clings to every nip and curve of the body. There is not a doubt just how naked I am underneath the dress. He has bought me a closet full of other dresses and clothing that have exactly the same effect.

Sometimes we do not get to the car before we are naked and almost never get home with clothes still on.

I think you would find many Lushies are in the same position.

Topic When reading stories what words do you prefer to be used for your vagina?
Posted 23 Nov 2016 12:30

One of my biggest problems is selecting a word for "pussy" (that's my usual go-to noun) that fits the story that can either be used repeatedly and not look out of place, or to pick a variety of words and shuffle them about.

However, with a good audience here, it could be the right place to ask...

When you are reading a story, what words refering to your pussy do you find (a) most pleasant to read and (b) those that are a turn off?

Thanks in advance

Well, I do understand there is not a very large inventory to choose from and I do understand you do not want to turn off your readers. So beyond pussy, vag and cunt, I do not know what the choices are.

Cunt will offend lots of woman, I am not one of them., In fact, I use that term from time to time myself.

Good Luck in whatever direction you decide on.

Why must we be so sensitive?.

Topic strange requests
Posted 22 Nov 2016 19:27

My straight room-mate in college got mad after catching me in bed in our dorm room with my 4th new girlfriend in a month. It took me till the next morning to finally get her to tell me why she was so upset with me. She eventually admitted that she was jealous, and why had I never tried to get HER in bed. DUH! She was straight! That didn't matter. She was hurt that I never tried, because we had gotten close in every other way. She wanted to try it, just once, so that night, we did. She didn't take to the actual sex, but she loved the cuddling afterwards, so we wound up sleeping in the same bed together every night, but without the sex. All she wanted was the close contact and cuddling.

Bethany, it is rather hard for us who have gotten to know you over the last year or two to believe you slept with a young college coed and left her all alone on her side of the bed.

This is my meaning. Thank you Bethany!

I Agree I Agree and I Agree. If you know a skilled Artisan in Glass work you can have a dildo made just the right length for you and you partner. Thus you both are being penetrated and going Clitoris to Clitoris at the same time.

You may go insane from an afternoon of Tribbing like this! As Rhett said. "Frankly my Dear I do not give a damn!"

We are all different sizes and it is NOT a one size fits all.
