Topic i just had this thought about " The Wall"....
27 Feb 2017 18:56
Some 40% of Mexican Immigrants come in by air, how high is this wall going to be?
America needs cheap immigrant labor to provide the privileged life to the ruling class, same reason they needed slaves to build the most affluent country in the world. What truly astounds me is that neither Trump or his buddy that owns Carls Jr. seem to understand how much their restaurants, hotels and golf courses depend on this labor. Are they that disconnected from their businesses?
Tariffs that force cars/goods to be built in America will raise the price of cars & goods, no secret there. So a bad day for consumers.
Unemployment is at a 20 year low, why are jobs the focus of his presidency?
I like the attention being paid to crime rates in Chicago, but again statistics tell us that crime is down. He is extremely cozy with NRA. but wasn't he supposed to be the guy free of debts to lobbyists and super pacs. ? America is already the most incarcerated county in the world (including Russia and China), so why raise the bar?
I don't like the military build up, attempts to control the media and isolationism. I just don't see the payback. Ego?
Companies are citizens of the world. and the number 1 market for GM is China....what if they were to move their head office to Beijing? Crazy? If you owned a company wouldn't you want to locate in your biggest and growing market. USA is just another market, GM is not a citizen of America. It just happened to be born and raised here.
Trump really doesn't appear to be very bright. He's not using the data to point him at reasonable and achievable goals. Here are the areas that need attention and in my opinion are low hanging fruit:
Get the debt down, and that frees up money from servicing debt and brings it back to the electorate. Trumps litany of bankruptcies and over borrowing have always concerned me as to his ability to really understand finance and balance risk.
Take care of our children, they are our future. Make them confident and brilliant, by taking care of education. Our education scores and motivation suck in comparison to much of world. Our schools have become armed camps, our children fat and lazy.
Understand that the world is a smaller place than it was when we were born. Your boss or co worker is just as likely to be named Mohammed as Bill, and just as likely to be located in Zurich as Baltimore. Understanding diversity without fear/prejudice is a strength not a weakness. So many American's speak Spanish and English the two most universal languages in the world....what an opportunity waiting to be mined and harvested.
America is already doing many good things on these fronts and they are not being celebrated, expanded and exploited. A true leader would pick his battles and look for gains where they bring the most benefit rather than being a slave to public opinion.
I repeat Trump really doesn't seem that independent or particularly bright. I look forward to being shown my conclusions were premature.
Topic IMMIGRATION .... the elephant in the room
30 Jan 2017 16:39
Economics 101 teaches that the country receiving new immigration benefits. Immigration is an economic positive, broadens the tax base and in time (time is a variable that can be manipulated/lessened by educational or monetary requirements) provides working tax paying individuals that did not incur economic costs to the receiving country during their formative (educational) period. Isolationism is a dead end policy, with respect to immigration or trade. These are just proven accepted economic standards.
Topic should women be allowed to be topless in public?
16 Nov 2016 19:27
In Canada it's totally legal. The issue is gender equality. If men can go topless a woman can too. It's about equality. I'm in favour of anything that rids of confusing sexuality and nudity.

Topic Religion, Bad or Good?
12 Oct 2016 06:11
Religions are man made. They are a basis of unifying and controlling a population. Usually this manifests into a political power base, or a form of armed nationalism. Rites and practices tend emphasize and at times work to find distinctions and differences as opposed to commonalities (what is the difference between Halal food and Kosher?!) between people. Many religions have a stated objective of growth, and often send missionary expeditions to scared, threatened or uneducated populations in order to more easily expand the power base. Can any of these things be considered good?
Topic do you believe in God?
12 Oct 2016 05:52
There is order in the universe, you see it in ecosystems, like the native Americans did, and in the solar system like the Druids did, and in the human mind and body. There is a God. I think the energy between all of us may be the entity we refer to as spirit or God. The rest is all man made crap about worship, with rituals and rites that distract from the essence and beauty of our world. Having said that I do believe we have a responsibility and the creative mental ability to enhance, not destroy what we have been given. If moving forward in a positive direction is worship then so be it.
Topic Dear women... Facials.
02 Oct 2016 09:55
When I was playing with my first cocks, I always liked to see the fruit of my labours. I had a theory that the amount of cum and the distance it was fired equated to how well I was doing as a lover. Having a guy go off to the bathroom to deal with the contents of a used condom made me feel as though I was missing out on an important part of the sex.
Being on the receiving end of a cum shot can satisfy the "secret porn star" in anyone's fantasies.
I like this girls thinking, sexy and sincere

believe it or not the black community rose up & killed the teaching of Ebonics.
I'll tell ya what, well done black community, know what I'm saying? Now if they could just teach sportscasters, white/black doesn't matter, they both use these phrases incessantly.
Next pet peeve is the over use of the word "like" followed closely by "yous" as in "Like are yous guys ready to order?" To which I reply, "Weez guys are"
Topic Do guys like it when a woman wears lingerie?
03 Aug 2016 06:31
No I don't, women without panties are so much sexier, as is a smaller breasted woman without a bra. Perhaps for me as a male, it's the ease of access Silky underwear simulates skin to skin contact for the wearer, but really doesn't do much else, IMHO

Total U.S. aid to Israel is approximately $10 billion per annum. U.S. government has given more federal aid to the average Israeli citizen in a given year than it has given to the average American citizen.

I'm one of the few men that I know that has actually read the book. Just the first one, I couldn't endure more. I read it because I was so interested to see erotic reading come out of the closet and go mainstream. When people start to be honest about their desires I believe there is hope for a Utopian society after all. Now lets all get naked.

I think girlfriends should do this for each other all the time, just to get the hard to reach areas. So intimate, arousing because of the confidence it takes to be that open and exposed.

As a Canadian the kind comments are heart warming. As we apparently say in Canada almost too often, thank you.
There are some states we would gladly accept as our 11th province. We offer higher gas prices, but universal health care. Maternity leave that lasts a year, but higher taxes.

Topic Would you let yourself be tied up during sex?
02 Jun 2016 05:04
Early in my relationship with the lady who is now my wife of 45 years, we tried a card game we read about in a sex advice book. Basicly, we both put sexual things we'd like to try, or do again, on index cards. I think we started with 5 each. We shuffled the cards and picked one each month. The deal was we would try it unless the other was completely unwilling. The person whose card was picked would then add to the deck a replacement fantasy card.
An early one that we picked was hers, she wanted to tie me down on the bed, blindfold me, and do whatever she wanted. Well, I was surprised. Neither of us is into pain giving or receiving. We agreed on a safe word and went ahead. It turned out that she wanted to make love to me while I was passive so she would not be interupted by my turning my focus onto pleasing her. It was one of the most senual experiences of my life. I never knew what I would experience next - feel her hands caressing me, or a piece of cotton, a piece of silk, a piece of fur, feathers - and where would I feel them. Sometimes I would suddenly be kissed, or my erect cock taken into her mouth, an empty mouth, or one filled with warm water or filled with ice cubes. Her teeth nipping my nipples suddenly replaced by an ice cube. Etc etc needless to say, there were repeat performances and soon she was enjoying being tied up as well, although she always preferred my being the one tied up.
Interesting and informative, thanks for sharing

Why does this feel like Janet Jackson's nip slip all over again? It amazes me that right wing anti government leaning people immediately run to government when they see something they don't agree with. I guess it's better than reaching for their 45 caliber.
