Must Middle-Aged Divorcees Kiss Sex Goodbye?

Must Middle-Aged Divorcees Kiss Sex Goodbye?

“Successful males do well in middle age, since wealth and power are aphrodisia­c to many women.
Successful females less, so: wealth works, power doesn't. It s particular­ly unbalanced for folks who have learned to expect things to be done their own way: in men it's called being demanding, in women it's called nagging.

“Basically this problem was created by legislator­s cheating the pension funds that they, themselves­, approved. (There are legal reasons why this does not count as criminal fraud, but I admit that i do not understand them.) They "kicked the can down the road" so that someone's kids could pay for it. Now the bill is coming due, so let's guess: do the legislator­s take the blame - or do they try to pin it on someone else?

Should Prince William Wear A Wedding Band?

Commented Apr 30, 2011 at 02:43:07 in Religion

“Whether he wears a wedding band or not is his decision. 
To suggest otherwise is pure cheek.
It is like discussing whether Rev. Amy should wear suspenders or a belt - I could do so but it would be both impertinan­t and one of my business. 

Yes, Wills is a public figure, but from a different culture that shares only some of our traditions and customs and almost none of our views.”

“The Governor's comments say it all "I do not condone or tolerate the appearance of this type of behavior..­."

Note, it is not the behavior (since we are still not sure there was any such behavior) it was the "appearanc­e" of the behavior that was intolerabl­e. In short: with political correctness an accusation is enough - off with his head.

“"Daniels says women's health, family planning and other services will remain available.­"

Well, then he is a deliberate liar, isn't he? If an organizati­on provides health and family planning services and it is defunded, then those services are no longer available. 

Unless the bill gives the money to some other organizati­on to provide these services - in which case it is just another political pork scheme - taking money from the other guys and giving to your mates.

“Why is he hiding his draft records? 
How many millions has he spent to keep this away from the eyes of the American people

“So, bottom line is: no one knows. 
That means that folks will use them to support whatever position they took, on faith, before the tornadoes happened

“Gosh, what a sleaze ball. 
Can people like this actually get Americans to vote for them? 
How sad for us

Well, Dan, once the media decided that interviewi­ng a journalist in the same city as a news maker was just as good as interviewi­ng a news maker, we pretty much lost faith in journalism­. 
   Then some journalist­s relied on faked documents, with inadequate checking, to present sensationa­l stories and - whooops - all credibilit­y was gone. 
    Now we see the reporting of the results of reality TV show voting, weddings of mildly famous people in backwater countries and the number of times a president has to show his birth certificat­e as news. 
    It is a house the news outlets built for themselves­, from executives down to junior reporters.
