Yeehaaaa! REAL snow in north Georgia!!! Yes, it's coming down like crazy, big fluffy snowflakes. Snowball fight kind of snow, not that ice stuff that makes hard ice balls that will knock someone's teeth out, like we usually get. Real fluffy snow covering everything and in early December. It doesn't even snow but about once every three years or so here. It's wintery wonderland. Everyone is heading home. Close this place down. Schools are sending the kids home. SNOW PARTY ATLANTA!!!

Soon, I think my wife and I are going out in my Jeep to cut circles in the snow, once we find a big open, vacant, flat parking lot.

Y'all may think we're crazy to send people home but there is precious little snow equipment here. It's much cheaper to just close down than keep a bunch of snow/ice equipment on hand that's used once every few years.

Really the trickle down economic theory is the Piss On 'Em Theory. A much better economic theory builds from the bottom up. That's much more sound economics. Employees with great morale do great work, more work, and produce bigger profits. Having piss trickle down to them doesn't build morale. But way too many corporate leaders are motivated by greed not building something lasting.

Bill, I'd been so put out with the Falcons I gave my tickets to my brother. It still looked like they tried their best to lose, but I think the Saints gave that their best shot too. In the end, a typical Falcons-Saints game, down to the final seconds. Still, this year's Falcons are not anywhere near last year's.

I have no idea what high school the Falcons stole those uniforms from.

One last cold beer. And bartender, pour yourself something strong on me.

Topic Jerusalem - Capital of Israel
Posted 07 Dec 2017 20:44

It is important in that many people who claim to be Christian are waiting for the destruction of Israel as a sign that Jesus is coming. We do not need to be forming national policy with the intent of bringing about the second coming.

Trump probably is the herald of the anti-Christ anyway. Almost every position he takes is anti the teachings of Jesus of Nazareth.

But he's got all those rich Pharisee-type TV preachers kissing his ass. I guess they think hanging around with the Trumpster will get them a new gold & silver sanctuary or glass cathedral, and a church provided Mercedes. Trump does have golden hair. It might be the golden fleece. Yeah, his declaring Jerusalem the capital of Israel will make him popular with all the Caiaphases.

Otherwise, it greatly increases the chances of a terroristic attack. And again, Trump shows that diplomacy is not in his tiny vocabulary.

Have a look at most other western countries. It's often far from perfect, but also almost always far better than what the US has right now, as a system. And no, it's not socialism.

I am pretty much a free market guy but healthcare being determined by a collusional group of for-profit health insurance mega-corporations is definitely not in the best interest of the citizens of the USA.

In this case, a little socialism could be quite acceptable. The richest nation on the planet shouldn't have any of its people going without or getting substandard care.

Thank you Sprite..
One of my friends spoke very highly of you.
Merely trying to follow the example Buzz posted about Conservatives… There is no hatred in my heart for anyone on Gods earth…I'm stepping back as we speak …


One z, not 2 in Buz.

And I thought what I posted about conservatives was rather tame comparatively speaking. I am not a Democrat. I'm a Libertarian/Republican moderate disgusted with the current GOP, and vehemently disgusted by the current president. I am truly disgusted bt the GOP being taken over by the alt-right, which absolutely does lean toward white supremacism and fascism.

I would support a split and creating a new party if that is what it takes. A moderate party could actually convert a lot of the bluedog Democrats that were purged from that party by the DNC withholding donations during campaigns. Something that the GOP used to not do, but has started that practice themselves.

There are a lot more moderates in the USA than the ultra-left or the ultra-right, so a new Moderate Party could wield the real power. Moderates generally exhibit a lot more common sense. And common sense is woefully lacking amongst the current GOP leadership.

After reading many liberal dominated posts, I clearly see why liberals feel embolden. The problem seems systemic.

I've been thinking, "Most liberal dominated threads appear to be petrie bowls for delusional left wing hacks".

Watching morons rotate in out for the sole purpose of demeaning conservatives , while acting like the fools they truly are , feeds my ever increasing hatred for them and all they stand for.

I doubt many pay taxes anyway, so discussing important issues with them is pointless. Studies have shown that liberals typically lie, cheat, steal and are takers rather than givers.


no names were mentioned….

Please back that up with a credible source.

I know Trump's campaign statements did very poorly when researched by Politifact.

But just saying something doesn't make it true if it is not, no matter how many times it is said.

The Democrats are the traditional party of the working class, who have been the tax income breadbasket of the USA for over a century, and the main reason income tax was established in the first place.

2. There's more truth to what you say than you may imagine. I'm going to relate an experience I had many years ago. This is going to bring out "the harpy swarm" just as sure as the sun will rise in the morning. But WTF, my fan club on Lush ain't exactly thriving no matter what I say. Nothing more dangerous than a man with nothing to lose eh? My college girlfriend was studying in the UF library. My exams were done so I brought her something to eat and waited to walk her to her apartment. To kill time I was browsing the shelves and found an odd section I hadn't been in before. Apparently, at least at UF, a masters thesis or PhD dissertation gets submitted into the graduate school's library. I found that section and was looking for interesting stuff to read. I came across a paper written by an American History major who had done genealogy research on post civil war African American families. The back story was that after Appomattox, the Confederate States were flat on their back economically. The cotton farming plantation system, dependent on slave labor was gone. Large numbers of freedmen were starving but had no occupational skills other than farming cotton. But the main market for cotton, British textile mills, had found alternate sources for raw cotton in Egypt. Meanwhile, the Army of the Potomac was demobilizing yet had field kitchens and large stores of food and no troops to feed. The ad hoc solution, perhaps started by General William Sherman, was to feed the freedmen, using Union Army food stocks and Union Army kitchens. What this history major had found was that many of those families were still receiving Federal assistance over a hundred years later. Welfare may be of help to some, but it apparently wasn't of much long term help to those folks. Certainly not enough help to get them on their feet economically.

The welfare system needs to be re-designed into a graduated system of improving people's lives, their education and job training, so that they end up with real and usable life and job skills and are able to be truly independent.

The government's low-income housing should be designed as communities with individual homes, that are nice and don't all look alike. Then these people can get on their feet and have pride in their homes and community. It would help give them dignity.

That would take a lot of up front tax money but in the long run save money for generations to come. Unfortunately, our government takes the cheap way out unless it's funding that boosts mega-corporations or our ability to take over someone else's oil fields.

Police and fire department are not funded by the federal government but by the taxes of your local municipalities. Education, for the most part, is also not funded by the federal government. Education is basically the responsibility of each state, then that breaks down to each local district's school board. The local school board usually gets its funding for education from local county and city property taxes, so many people like renters are not actually paying for their child's education. Some states allow local option sales tax to help pay for local public education. The federal government does often contribute to school programs. It seems to reward those that adhere to the educational policies of whichever president is in office at the time.

Welfare in the USA doesn't work well because it traps people within the welfare system. I volunteer at a local homeless and feeding shelter and we get families of three and four generations on welfare. Those people know nothing else and if their welfare and government housing were cut-off they'd end up homeless and starve because they have no clue about living any other way. The government did this to them.

But welfare, food stamps, and low-income housing are very necessary. The entire system needs to be re-concepted and designed from new, not just an overhaul. If our nation invests serious money into starting a new on this and building great educational schools, quality low-income housing that doesn't make people feel inferior and like they are losers, and do this with enough quality policing in those areas, there would be a huge pay-off for future generations.

The problem is that the GOP is not at all interested in doing any of that. They just want to cut spending on it, so they can give bigger tax breaks to the wealthy and mega-corporations or spend huge amounts of tax money military conquering some country for their oil.

The Democrats also don't want that kind of positive change because if the welfare class gains independence then why should they vote for their local Democrats who promise them a lot but only deliver them tiny nuggets.

Back to the tax reform bill. So far it's proving to be ill-conceived at breakneck speed and full of flaws, some of which are now scaring the crap out of the GOP as some of these flaws might backfire on them, forcing the rich in some cases to pay some taxes. They'll get those loopholes closed up before the House and Senate agree. But the many loopholes benefiting the mega-corporations and ultra-rich will stay put, I'm sure.

This is your first and last official warning that in just over an hour, Buz's Atlanta Falcons will host my New Orleans Saints.If my Saints win, it'll just about cinch them a NFL playoff spot. If Buz's Falcons prevail, they'll stay alive in the playoff picture.

Consider yourselves warned. ;)


The Atlanta Falcons are mental wimps, so I expect them to lose, especially if the game is tough and close in the second half, they'll wilt like dying flowers. The Falcons have one of the most talented teams in the NFL and have been one of the deepest rosters talent-wise. But when the going gets tough, they lay down. That kind of crap starts with coaching.

After their last meltdown, I decided to quit financially supporting them. They are a professional team. If the owner gives you a shitty product, don't buy it.

The last few games in Mercedes-Benz Stadium, the Falcons' fans have left their seats and went to the many very nice sit down restaurants and bars they have scattered throughout that most modern stadium and luxurious in the world. However, when the SEC Championship Game between Georgia and Auburn was played there, everyone in that place was glued to their seats and yelling their heads off.

Anyhow, go ahead and place a bet on your Saints, Bill. If I bet on the Falcons I'll be betting on the Saints and probably take the spread. I'm sure the Saints are favored.

At 7-5, it's possible the Falcons could get hot and make the playoffs but not unless a hypnotist convinces them that they don't choke when the game gets tough.

It's cold here today, so I'll have an ice cold beer, make that a few.

Actually, a pack of hyenas better exemplify the current Republican Party, they don't earn their own food, they steal it from others. Conservatives with big balls? Only if they are inflated with hot air. The head of the Republican Party is a fucking draft dodger! Please, at least try to be real.

Conservatives being even-tempered? Now, that is truly laughable. Their spokesman for the last couple of decades has been Bill O'Reilly, which is appropriate since he's a proven hypocrite. Their voice is Fox News which is anything but even-tempered and anything but objective.

There are so many flaws in this tax bill that it's back in committee where they are trying to figure out all the mistakes.

The term 'fake news', anyone who hasn't had their head in the sand knows the term Faux News existed a lot longer. The original FAKE NEWS!

Topic Is it normal for a story to "get away" from the writer's planned outline, and sort of write itself?
Posted 06 Dec 2017 20:00

Earlier I posted that I've had success doing a story both ways. On 2 recent stories, I actually wrote the ending first and on one I split the ending in two, using the first part of the ending as the beginning then went back in story time and built the main character. Then had fun connecting it all together with the action leading up to the second half of the ending.

But with those stories, I found it great fun to write the ending first and find out through writing how to get there.

Topic Just noticed ANOTHER new story category... Mind Control
Posted 06 Dec 2017 12:20

For instance, if a person under no circumstances would be not be servile and kneel down and give a blow job, no amount of mind control will make them do it. Because that is way beyond their character. But if they do do it, then deep down they've harbored the desire to. The mind control brings that out. It is a latent part of their character.

There can be a host of reasons someone suppresses their desires such as peer pressure, religion, social standing, corporate hierarchy, etc. But deep inside those are things that they could do, so mind control brings that to the service.

It's the same concept as the prudish librarian that under the right circumstance becomes a sexual dynamo.

If we as story verifiers determine that a storyline and action in this genre is being written as rape, we'll reject that.

I can't explain it any better. The description of Mind Control that goes with the category seems to make perfect sense to me. If anyone doesn't understand the category or finds it repulsive, then they should avoid it. There are categories I do not write in because I wouldn't enjoy it. Just use common sense.

If someone desires an Omnium Badge enough to force themselves to write in all categories, even if they don't like them, then they've earned the Badge, at least until we add another category. Sorry, that's just how it is. It's actually a pretty good representation of how real life works.

Topic Just noticed ANOTHER new story category... Mind Control
Posted 06 Dec 2017 11:07

Drugging and rape will not be tolerated! Anyone posting that will be shown the door. Sayanora! Adios!

Everyone should read what it says under the heading of that category. Here it is...

Mind Control:

Mind control sex stories, are those where mind control and even telepathy, is somehow used as part of a sexual act. One of the most commonly used mind control techniques is hypnotizing someone, and then using suggestions to make them perform sexual acts or bring themselves to orgasm while under hypnosis. Characters are often hypnotised into behaving less restrained than they might be in real life. A person may have a secret longing to be used as a sexual plaything, but are unlikely to realise that fantasy unless it was brought out under hypnosis. Another common theme in mind control stories, is turning the hypnotised person into a "people puppet", where the "villain" may use his psychic powers, to manipulate the limbs of his "victim", as if they were a puppet. For example, a person may not wish to be servile to another, but might be forced to kneel down in front of them (and perform various "services"), in a case of mind over matter.


It's about using mind control techniques used by someone to bring out hidden, secret, and suppressed desires in someone else...

How does the new US tax bill affect lush ?
Surely a very large portion of the revenue results from the US members. Many companies are considering moving to the US for the tax new advantage …. OH I forgot… The corporate tax rate in Australia is less… Not sure the new numbers will affect Lush, but perhaps you could tell us. After all you are importing goods and services to the US.

Just thinking and wondering

I am an American corporate broker living in the USA. Corporate business & economics is my livelihood. I am a staunch capitalist but I also care about people. I like having the Theodore Roosevelt attitude to capitalism/free enterprise. It should work for the good of the people by making business compete for people's hard earned money by providing the best possible product and best possible service for the lowest possible price.

The USA has near monopolies and anyone that doesn't believe collusion between the mega-corporations is going on is foolishly naive.

The problem is that the GOP represents the rich and especially mega-corporations, not the average American. And this is at a time when the financial gap between the ultra-rich and the middle class is growing, negatively affecting the middle class. The middle class is shrinking towards poverty while the ultra-rich are getting richer. This GOP tax plan kills the American Dream.

That's why I say that those Lush members that like the bill must be stinking rich. So they can easily afford to help Lush by making large financial contributions to the site. So bring it on.

Fueling the economy by greatly easing the tax burden on working middle-class Americans and small business would put much more money into the economy than giving tax breaks to the ultra-rich, who have no need to increase spending, and mega-corporations who actually negatively affect the economy with their tax breaks by using those savings to crush smaller independent companies.

PS. We could talk in another thread about the other things the GOP represents like being anti-LGBT rights, being anti-abortion, swinging toward favoring white supremacists, pro-machine guns, *anti-immigrant, etc. and the GOP has never lowered the national debt.

*Any economist worth their own weight knows that immigration builds the US economy. It always has! New cheap labor fuels the American GNP.

What this tax plan does not do:
• give a tax break to the middle class
• give tax breaks and incentives to small business
• ease the burden on the lower middle class and the working poor.

What it does do:
• give marvelous tax breaks to mega-corporations
• give tax breaks to the utra-rich
• give tax breaks to those making over $250,000 a year.

What would work better:
• giving tax breaks to the middle class, small business, lower middle class and working poor, as that would free up an enormous amount of spending money that would make the economy boom.

Why the tax plan will not work:
• history has proven that tax breaks for the rich, and for mega-corporations does not put money into the economy and does not grow the GNP. The rich always horde the money; the mega-corporations will just use it to buy up and downsize competition or other companies (downsizing will take money out of the economy.) And the mega-corporations will give raises to their top management, who in turn, horde the increase.

So all of you who are for the GOP Tax Plan, since you are very rich, please make significant financial donations to Be a good member because you obviously, can afford it.
