You're looking only for single females. We never pursue single females because they virtually never bite. We probably sent 500 emails to single females in our first 2 years here. We got a positive response from 2. One of those two was downright crazy. The other we met at a party, she *smacked* Mrs. VA's hand away from me, and that was the end of that. You might eventually find something here in a single female, but wow... good luck...

This summer, like the few before it, has been much cooler than the several before that. When we moved here in 2006 (and persisting until 2010), summer highs of 94-104 were common; we'd have at least 10 days each summer of 100+, and 85 was a "cool" day. Now, we haven't had a 100 degree day in 3 years, and it rarely crosses 92. While some might find this nice, it's beginning to hurt tourism in Virginia Beach, which depends on an ocean temperature in the low 80s in the summer; it ain't been happening in the last few years. To all of you in the southeast - a little tropical something something is probably coming early to mid next week. Keep an eye on it....

I agree; the Governor of Missouri has to watch what they say much more carefully than, say, a State Senator from West Virginia. This is within his jurisdiction. Unfortunately public pressure to do SOMETHING fast leads to them always fucking these sorts of things up. The Governor can't just say "will all of you jerks just shut up and less us do our job?!?"

So here's a question - Does Joe Biden even WANT to run? If he does, how much will he fight? While *Democrats* tend to favor Hillary, people overall, not so much. One of the downsides to being around so long is that you've had a lot of time for everyone to form opinions about you. Obama had the advantage of being "new guy" in 2008. Neither Joe or Hillary have that. *If* Joe want to be prez, it might be a very messy primary, and both might suffer serious damage which could hurt them come the election. Unless Joe is sure he can pull it off he'd be wise to not mount a serious campaign and throw his support behind Hillary. I'm focused mostly on the Democratic primaries as the Republican ones are much murkier at this time, and there's no clear "incumbent" like there is among Democrats.

There of course will be many who don't believe he deserves a fair trial. Such people are, of course, ignorant. Everyone deserves a fair trial, and statements like this by the Governor can be used by the officer's defense team to demonstrate that he is being denied due process. In cases like this, the prosecution goes long in response to public outcry, can't achieve a conviction on the charges, and the guy walks. Happened with the Rodney King and Trayvon Martin cases, and will likely happen here too.

North Korea isn't exactly our best friend, but lately they've been ramping up the personal insults against Obama and other world political figures. A policy department spokesman at the North Korean defence commission, led by leader Kim Jong-un, described US Sec. of State John Kerry as a “wolf donning the mask of sheep" with a "hideous lantern jaw". (lantern jaw?) A KCNA editorial released on May 2, written in English, described South Korean President Park as “no more than a mentally deranged [sic] who does not have normal thinking faculty and insight, and a confrontation maniac just like a rabid dog always keen on biting others.” It described Park as “no more than an old prostitute coquetting with outside forces”, in reference to South Korea’s ties with the US. “What she has done, kowtowing to outside forces since she took office as ‘president’, clearly proves that she is no more than a dirty political harlot and old prostitute without an equal as she is steeped in sycophancy and treachery,” the editorial said. An editorial released by KCNA on the same day, written in Korean, used racist language to refer to Obama, describing the US president as “a wicked black monkey” and a “crossbreed with unclear blood.” The article said Obama “should live as a monkey in an African natural zoo licking the breadcrumbs thrown by spectators.” --------- I'm impressed at the use of the word "coquetting", which means flirting; attempting to get the attention of. I've learned a new word - from North Korea.

I've never heard him say much I've been impressed with. His economic stances are pretty good but he's another of these social conservatives which isn't going to fly. He's almost indistinguishable from Rick Santorum in his stances; he's just favorable for Fox News to throw up on the screen because demographically he's more bulletproof. When you say "favoring" - do you mean whom would I make President? Paul Ryan. Or has the best chance of winning? Chris Christie. Possibly Bobby Jindal.

BLACK WOMEN-WHITE MEN

Interesting perspective, Mrs. Fancy. I hadn't ever thought of it that way, but after taking a moment to do so, I can totally "get it". Dare I say - on the other hand - two things: 1. With respect to the whole "I always wanted to try" I can understand people wanting to try someone who is very far outside of their "normal" repertoire. That's not to say I can't also understand why someone wouldn't like being pursued for that reason. 2. With respect to the whole "pretty for a black girl" While I know first-hand that you are in fact a rather lovely lass and quite attractive for ANY kind of girl, I consider this a poor choice of words for a relatively common thought process - someone whose demographic might not typically be interesting to someone in particular, but certain specific people within it can be. While I would never be so crass as to tell someone she was "pretty for a black girl", I myself don't *usually* find black women very attractive. However, occasionally I do encounter one that I find *very* attractive, and I can see how such a thought process can manifest as a crude statement like "you're pretty for a black girl". Not a very eloquent thing to say, but I can see how it can be what arrives on someone's lips. Thanks for your thoughts on this. I think your post here is one of the best I've read in some time on such matters, and it's always nice to see you pay the fora a visit.

I don't like the peer pressure aspect of it either. Kind of like shaming people for not donating to the United Way or something at work or the grocery store. "Raising awareness" is a HUGE scam in the charity business. Lots of "awareness" campaigns are just people paying themselves to advertise. For example: I put out jars for "Raise Awareness" for dippydoodilitis (shout out to The Flintstones there). I take the money, pay an ad agency (which I own) to publish ads to raise awareness for dippydoodilitis, pocket the rest. Hey - the money is to raise awareness, right? Sorry to come off as cynical, but be very wary about EVER donating to a "raise awareness" campaign. You're pretty much giving someone money to publish ads and giving them a tidy profit. And it's perfectly legal, since "raise awareness" is so nebulous that all they have to do is do SOMETHING with the money that constitutes "awareness raising" and they're home free.

The Editorial Board of the NYT - not just one columnist - makes their disdain for Rick Perry known while at the same time judging the case against him as ridiculous: "Gov. Rick Perry of Texas is one of the least thoughtful and most damaging state leaders in America, having done great harm to immigrants, abortion clinics and people without health insurance during his 14 years in office. But bad political judgment is not necessarily a felony, and the indictment handed up against him on Friday — given the facts so far — appears to be the product of an overzealous prosecution. " "....his ill-advised veto still doesn’t seem to rise to the level of a criminal act..... Governors and presidents threaten vetoes and engage in horse-trading all the time to get what they want, but for that kind of political activity to become criminal requires far more evidence than has been revealed in the Perry case so far."

Ferguson
FORUMS > General Discussions > Politics > Ferguson       08-19-2014 15:25 PM
I didn't want to comment on this (and Lord knows NK didn't want me to either), but I am going to. As more facts about this case come out, the more it is beginning to seem like this officer will walk. There are real examples of police brutality, and this isn't going to be the one to walk with. I'd be willing to bet that nobody has heard the name Andrew Scott Gaynier. He is a white unarmed 26-year old man who was shot and killed by a black police officer on Aug. 10 - the *day after* this event in question occurred. Police statements (and dash-cam video, apparently) tell the story that Gaynier lunged at the police officer and attacked him and the officer shot him multiple times. If this story is correct, the officer will ultimately be vindicated (and rightfully so), probably without any riots or looting. But unless I think to google it later, I doubt any of us will know the outcome of this investigation, because it's inconsistent with the narrative. There will be no statement from the President. The DOJ will not investigate. You won't hear about it again. The witness statements range all over the place from him being shot while running away to being forced to kneel in the street and shot execution-style. The statements all conflict with each other and with what autopsy results have come out so far. At most, one of them is telling the truth. The witnesses are so keen to tell the story they want to tell that they hammed it up to the point of ruining their own credibility. The person with Mr. Brown tells of the officer's door "ricocheting" off of Mr. Brown and slamming back on the officer. This is a physical impossibility. At most, a door pushed into someone could be pushed back. Car doors do not bounce off of big fat guys with any force, let alone enough force to slam on a person. Try it sometime. It's not possible. It seems very reasonable to imagine that the officer could have shoved the door into him, and he got hurt/pissed off and shoved it back. But because this would damage the idyllic image his friend wants to help portray, he made this bouncing door shit up, damaging his credibility. More than anything, the officer suffered an “orbital blowout fracture to the eye socket" from being struck by someone or something very hard near his eye. If the officer was being attacked by this guy, he was fully within his right to shoot him. As to the greater question about police brutality: Yes, it exists. Yes, sometimes it's racially motivated. And yes, most of the dickheads trashing stores, looting and throwing firebombs at police are just taking the opportunity to make trouble. Not a lot of people are going to pay attention to the facts in this case, and of course many of the ones we've heard so far may turn out to be fabricated or exaggerated. We'll see. But the willingness to convict (or exonerate) based on a whole bunch of tweets and angry people in the street is folly. I'm not exonerating him - but based on what I'm hearing so far, I think that's where it's headed. As for the media - I wonder if each article could state more times that the it's an "unarmed black teen" and a "white police officer"? Is that possible? How many more quotes can we get from his mother that include the word "my child"? Your "child" was 6'4 and weighed 300 pounds and obviously has no qualms when it comes to roughing up store owners. He might be your son, but he's fully an adult as far as anyone who encounters him on the street is concerned. But the words "black" "white" and "child" are thrown into the story as much as possible in an attempt to gently shove our minds in the intended direction. If the story read "officer shoots gigantic man after being punched in the face" I don't think we'd have the same situation.

I know it's a catch-22 - meet and greets don't always welcome single men. You need to get to meet and greets to meet people, but you can't go to meet and greets unless you already know them. If you're patient and a nice guy you'll crack your way in. It'll take some time. There is no substitute for actually getting out there and meeting people - even just "hello". Otherwise you're just another profile of another single guy who may or may not be genuine. I know in our case, we've completely given up on finding single males on SLS. Every single one the Mrs. has ever been interested in was either a fake, cheater or a flake. Every. Single. One.

"Are we so thin that we take an opinion as a personal attack?" People here tend to be a little hyperreactive towards what even *could* be perceived as being any sort of implication of pedophilia. Whether intended or not, they usually jump all over it instantly to remove any possibility whatsoever that such an idea could linger out there unanswered. Again - I realize it wasn't your intention. But the world is full of nitwits who read too much into things, and often allow an unchallenged thought to take hold in their minds and become a "fact", so people often feel the need to quash an idea like that if even the slightest chance it could take hold exists.

Potential Republican Party candidates: The Republican field is much broader; I haven't even heard of some of them. More will likely pile on: Michele Bachman (former Rep. from MN) John Bolton (former Ambassador to the UN) Scott Brown (Senator from MA) Jeb Bush (former Governor of FL) Herman Cain (former President of the National Restaurant Association) Ben Carson (Director of Pediatric Neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital) Chris Christie (Governor of NJ) Ted Cruz (Senator from TX) Mike Huckabee (former Governor of AR) Jon Huntsman (former Governor of Utah) Bobby Jindal (Governor of LA) Peter King (Rep. from NY) Rand Paul (Senator from KY) Mike Pence (Governor of IN) Rick Perry (Governor of TX) Rob Portman (Senator from OH) Mike Rogers (Rep. from MI) Marco Rubio (Senator from FL) Paul Ryan (Rep. from WI) Rick Santorum (former Sen. from PA) Joe Scarborough (former Rep. from FL) Donald Trump (business guy and hair model from NY) Of these, I would say that the best odds lay with Chris Christie, Bobby Jindal, Rand Paul and Marco Rubio. However, it's far more open than the Democratic nomination. Many of these are has-beens with a history of blowing their primary chances. Some of them like Rick Santorum have an opportunity to persist in the primaries; not long enough to win the nomination, but long enough to embarrass them all as a whole.

Potential Democratic Party candidates: Joe Biden (VP) Hillary Clinton (former Sec. of State; Senator from NY; first lady) Screamin' Howard Dean (former Governor of VT; DNC Chair) Joe Manchin (Senator from WV) Martin O'Malley (Governor of MD) Bernie Sanders (Senator from VT) Brian Schweitzer (former Governor of MT) Jim Webb (Senator from VA) Of these, I would say that Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton and Jim Webb are the only candidates here with a serious chance of winning the nomination. Democrats have an interesting conundrum here insofar as the presumptive candidate has always been the sitting VP, provided they are interested in the running. If Joe Biden chooses to run for President, what will the Democratic Party do? Will they unseat him and put Hillary Clinton in in his place? Or let him run against the Republican and see what happens?

(apostrophe from "ain't" removed to not risk a broken thread) So here we are about 1 year from potential candidates having to get their ducks in a row in order to compete in the primaries for 2016. What do we have here? I'm simply stealing from the list of potential candidates from wikipedia. If you can think of others, please add.

Well, I try to avoid committing to such solid predictions. I'm unwilling to believe that he might not actually have a trial looming in front of him, but I'd say his odds of a conviction are very small, unless there are pieces of this puzzle which have not been disclosed yet. Doesn't matter. His political future is grim, at least for now. He might find a home in a future Republican administration and rebuild himself, possibly setting the stage for a later run, but I doubt he has much of a chance of a 2016 presidential run.

A Bulgarian man’s bold attempt to sail to America from England in a 14-foot dinghy was thwarted by rescue crews who were concerned about his safety. The man was severely seasick when a Royal National Lifeboat Institution rescue crew found him only 5 miles into the 3,000-mile voyage. “He was exceedingly cold, wet and violently ill,” institution press officer Jo Dadds told ABC News today. “He had packed one bag of food and one bag of clothing with him,” Dadds said. “He insisted on continuing his journey when our crew members first found him. He didn’t want any help at all.” The man was found with a Bulgarian passport that included a U.S. visa. A yacht sailing by the dinghy Saturday noticed the intrepid sailor and informed the Royal National Lifeboat Institution, according to Dadds.

You suggested someone who is listed as 56 voted for Richard Nixon. This is a chronological impossibility. It has nothing to do with your age; more like your tendency to make statements regarding people and events that couldn't possibly have happened given the information at hand. Like if I claimed I was a Vietnam veteran - not possible given my stated age.

Math bites Frank once again. You'd have to be at least 60 to have voted for Nixon, even just in 1972, although to have voted for him in 1968 meant you had to be 67, since the voting age was 21 then.

For all of Z's (and some others) cheering on of forcible removal (via recall election or impeachment) of Republican governors from office, it doesn't seem to happen very often. We've seen many threads hailing the impending doom of Scott Walker, Chris Christie, and now Rick Perry. This track record ain't so great. Rod Blagojevich remains the only governor forced from office via impeachment since Evan Mecham in 1988, and Grey Davis the only one removed via recall since before the Depression. Other governors have found themselves in legal hot water (and been convicted), but always after having left office.

FORUMS > General Discussions > Politics > Rick Perry - Opps       08-17-2014 18:58 PM
I'm copy/pasting this, but the point is that even a lot of liberals think this is politically-motivated hogwash. "Unless he was demonstrably trying to scrap the ethics unit for other than his stated reason, [the] Perry indictment seems pretty sketchy." - former Obama campaign organizer David Axelord "Have to say Perry indictment seems nuts. Gov has constitutional power to veto. Gov uses power. Grand jury indicts bc they don't like reason?" - former Obama political strategist Jonathan Prince ThinkProgress, which isn't exactly right-leaning, wrote: "The Texas Constitution gives the governor discretion to decide when to sign and when to veto a bill, as well as discretion to veto individual line-items in an appropriation bill. Though the state legislature probably could limit this veto power in extreme cases — if a state governor literally sold his veto to wealthy interest groups, for example, the legislature could almost certainly make that a crime — a law that cuts too deep into the governor’s veto power raises serious separation of powers concerns." "Such laws would rework the balance of power between the executive and the legislature established by the state constitution, and they would almost certainly be unconstitutional." Well, a few people want him gone now. The Texas Democratic Party, for instance. Big shock. It seems interesting that this whole debacle is a politically motivated attempt to remove someone from office, in retaliation for what some say is a politically motivated attempt to remove someone from office. Most people cheering this have absolutely no interest in whether or not this is reasonable or if he even did anything illegal; they would be just as happy to see him convicted of the assassination of Abraham Lincoln 150 years after the fact. As long as he is humiliated, facts be damned. This is going nowhere, legally. We all know that. It wasn't intended to. It's a hit job.

I've always wondering how much ridiculousness one can pack into a single forum post. You've set the bar pretty high. re: "Oh, and save me the bull shit line that I speak from a stand point of ignorance," One of the problems with ignorance is that the ignorant are generally ignorant of their ignorance. The fact is that you DO speak from a stand point of ignorance. Everyone here - from the further reaches of the left and the right - has stated so many times. Well, OK Z hasn't. But you're out of your mind if you think Z respects you. He just wants you to keep marking (D) on election day. Otherwise he couldn't care less if you got mangled up and worked into aggregate material used to fill a new lane of I-81.

Z's proposed "solution" (which amounts to having Congress "do something") is a great idea. I put it to you that Congress can solve all of ours problems by "doing something". No specifics or even an angle of attack are necessary. If a man's wife is leaving him, there are two approaches he can take to attempt to change her mind: 1. Change the dynamic in a way that makes her not want to leave anymore. 2. Threaten her with ruining her life if she leaves. The US government and people like Z here favor the 2nd approach. They don't care about WHY she wants to leave or why she's unhappy with her current situation. They just want to kneecap her and publicly shame her unless she changes her mind. I am so losing faith in people. I fear this battle of the minds is lost. Not because the other side makes any sense, but because of the paucity of intelligence among the electorate.

I (male half) love kissing and the intimacy of touching, eye contact etc. I like that in swinging more than my Mrs. does. A newbie couple who was a little uncomfy with the whole thing asked us last week "Isn't that really intimate?". I said "Sure. But intimacy can be fleeting. I can be extremely connected with someone tonight, but tomorrow I'm pelting her with a water balloon and goofing off. It doesn't have to mean anything."

Mrs. VA's sister has a tattoo on her armpit of a dragon's head. She would - I'm serious - grow out her armpit hair and tend to it in such a way that it became hair on the dragon's head. A goatee. A fu-manchu. What have you. Yeah, she's a bit of an odd character. She doesn't do that stuff anymore, but still has the tattoo.

I had a boss for a while who had around 8 or so hairs growing out of the bridge of his nose. He was otherwise well-groomed but I couldn't understand why he would let those fucking things grow out like half an inch long. It was hard to have a serious conversation with him and not stare at those bizarre bridge-of-the-nose hairs. An effective "bridge tender", he was not.

However, *IF* they are involved in your vanilla life at all - know your kids, neighbors, other vanilla friends, or are somehow connected to your job(s), *do not* go there.

Massachusetts Treasurer Steve Grossman (D) passed a kidney stone during a 90-minute debate. The forum was held by MassEquality and WGBH at the Boston Public Library in Copley Square and included eight gubernatorial candidates -- the five Democrats and three independents, all of whom showed their support for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) community except for Scott Lively, an anti-gay candidate running to “advance a biblical world view”. Grossman’s pain-level was a 10 on a scale of 1-to-10, Allard said, and yet he fervently answered questions on everything from transgender rights and mandatory sex education to issues facing youth and aging members of the LGBTQ community. Word of Grossman’s stone -- which has inspired a parody Twitter account -- spread via the micro-blogging website, as did the news that he finally passed the stone, sometime during the awards ceremony. “I’m grateful that I made it out, but I know some of my fellow stones remain confined. We must #FreeTheStones! #mapoli,”@grossmansstone tweeted Wednesday morning. (Grossman's Stone sounds like a great name for a rock band)

I stress I am not picking a fight with the OP over this, because this error is ubiquitous. Mrs. VA makes it all the time. A search in the forum box shows that it has been done 270 times in the fora.
