Topic The next "Crusade"
28 May 2012 18:21
I think the next Crusade will be here, a clash between fundamentalists whose grip on reality grows ever more tenuous and more afraid of the rise of secularism, and i think it will be fought with terror mostly.
Topic Your Favorite Celebrity Crush
15 May 2012 20:24
My first was Diana Rigg playing Mrs. Emma Peel
Later on I sort of had a crush on a Playboy Playmate of the year named Victoria Edwards until I heard her speak. Bad voice.
More recently I wanted to bag the character Commander Ivanova from Babylon 5 played by Claudia Christian
Then it was Mary McDonnel's character President Laura Roslin on the new Battlestar Galactica.
right now there are no crushes. Jenna Fischer, Amy Adams and Nicole Kidman all went and married someone else, but then how could they have known I was available.
But if you're out there Catherine Keener, you know where to find me.
Topic Breasts, boobs or tits?
14 Apr 2012 06:05
Depends on how you plan to use the word. Breasts is more sensual, boobs are funnier and more casual, tits a term I don't like so much. Hooters is also a more comical term.
Topic How would you seduce a younger woman?
17 Mar 2012 11:19
The same way I'd seduce an older woman. By paying attention to her and what she says, by treating her with respect and with the occasional flirtacious comment to see her response.
Topic A more democratic government
17 Mar 2012 11:17
None of the questions Buz asked can really be debated in a 90 seconds, which seems to be TVs idea of attention span. But yes, I do consider the U.S. a democracy because I think it unworkable for 300 million people to hold a plebiscite on everything, particularly when small issues of language can change matters greatly. The devil in politics is often in the details, and if people aren't willing to spend thirty minutes a day, minimum on the news, how are they going to be expected to read a budget before they vote on it?
The issue today is more that our election system is 1) entirely too dependent on money which shifts power toward those who have it, and 2) that our system is designed to create mass, ideologically heterogenous poliitical parties with a local focus, and one of them, the GOP has become a purely ideological party thanks to the right-wing media and the take over of the nomination process by ideological conservatives. GOP moderates have for some years now been terrified of making sense lest they be accused of being RINO's and facing a primary challenge from the right, the sort of which defeated long time Pennsylvania Republican Arlen Spector.
Congress exists to slow down government to ensure that things America does are wanted by the country as a whole but it has long been known that a determined minority can wield power outside their numbers. But compromise is essential if we want issues dealt with. I am far more frightened by a man who has never crossed the lines then a man who has "always stood by his principles". IF we want our government to work well, the real solution is about four elections in a row where the GOP loses big, which will force them to choose between their hard right and power.
America needs an opposition party, but it can't get on when one party is run by fanatics and one is not. Right now our debates rarely center on reality, we need to return to reality of we are to move forward.

Canada is a nation we could learn a lot from. It seems every day that some Republican introduces a bill even more bizarre then the rest. I feel like I'm living in the middle of Voltaire's Candide.
Topic Your favorite uncommon sexy body parts?
13 Mar 2012 17:14
the small of a woman's back where it arches down and in, then curves back out again for the swell of her bottom. Beautiful, and very lickworthy.
Topic How do men feel about red headed women?
10 Mar 2012 17:10
I have a bit of a thing for hot redheads, due to Nicole Kidman and Marcia Cross, but really hair color is the last thing that matters.
23 Feb 2012 15:53
Of course I have the fantasy of myself and two women, but I suspect in real life they're much more problematic. If everyone is straight, then somebody is going to feel like a third wheel. If its me and two girls, is my partner going to feel threatened? And frankly, I suspect that if I meet someone who cares about me enough to make the offer, she won't want to share me. Frankly, vanilla still tastes pretty good so I don't feel left out.
Topic What do you prefer: slim or the fuller figure?
18 Feb 2012 09:32
If I get my choice, I'll take Nicole Kidman. But in the real world you don't and a body is a wrapping for a brain, and it's the brain that really matters. When you really like someone they get better looking, and what they have becomes what you like. It's that simple.

Topic What was your first vehicle you owned?
16 Feb 2012 17:28
It was a 1966 Plymouth Fury III, 318 A engine, 2bbl carb and a back seat made for drive in movies. Alas I was too shy to take a girl to the drive in while I owned the car.
A '66 Fury sort of like mine
Topic Are intelligent people less likely to believe in god.....?
06 Feb 2012 15:16
There have been some studies comparing religiousity with intelligence and the jury is still out. There is a small correlation between atheism and intelligence, but some very, very intelligent people are believers.

It's fun, but oral sex is best done one at a time so you can really concentrate on what you're doing-- or what is being done to you.
Topic Ruling Lifts Ban on Prostitution
11 Jan 2012 16:35
It's very difficult to regulate anything, and set standards when it is illegal.
Legalization would be very bad for pimps, though it probably would not eliminate them entirely, as legal prostitutes command much higher prices then their streetwalking cousins. There will always be some true victims. But it will hurt the pimps, minimize the drugs and spread of disease and will allow many women (and a few men) to make a living they otherwise would not.
The problem is we would have to admit that sex is a normal part of life, and it is also quite normal for it to take place outside of marriage.
Topic Are religions set for extinction?
11 Jan 2012 16:26
Science does a lot of things really well but "why" is not one of them, unless you're describing system. People need something to believe in, be it a set of principles, an ideology, their family or God. Since the existence of God cannot be disproved, I expect that religions will never disappear. The number of believers as a percentage may drop, but people will continue to believe and perhaps with increasing fervor as they come into conflict with the world around them.
Topic Defending our freedom

Defend our freedoms
As far as why we are in another country entirely. We like Democracy, we like to spread it.
Actually, a careful study of history shows that while Americans like to talk about Democracy, we don't care about it at all. Every time we've been forced to choose between Democracy and business interests, we choose money. Coups we backed in Iran, Guatemala, Chile and (most recently) Venezuela shows we put the almighty dollar first.
Topic Thoughts about someone from history...

Separating Hitler from his xenophobia isn't really possible, it defined who he was. It was his racism that drove him to begin wars of conquest. But even if he hadn't built the concentration camps, he still would have been evil for mouthing the words of racism, for promoting hatred, and for trying to conquer the world. He was evil, period.
