The fact you defend the most powerful married man in the world with a daughter nearly the same age as his young subordinate sex toy by asking if the sex toy enjoyed being used as such says everything, Lily.
Powerful men have significant power over vulnerable women. Does that mean it's okay for them to take advantage of that fact?
Nevermind thinking men who send pictures of their penises to women is a perfectly normal thing to do.
I'm not surprised that you missed the point. I didn't defend; I just don't think a persons sex life is anyone's business. I had hoped that Bill Clinton would have told the American people that this is a personal matter. Period. Bill Clinton was a phenomenal President nonetheless. Did he have personal weaknesses? Sure. Who doesn't? Monica Lewinsky was the aggressor; he succumbed. So what?
What did it prove to spend all that $50 million to have that stupid investigation? Nothing. It was absurd.
What would you suggest? Arresting and imprisoning every man who has a sexual indiscretion? Wake up and join the real world Carol.
It happens everyday, in every walk of life. Powerful wealthy men are pursued by women all the time. Sometimes they fall, sometimes they don't. Who cares?
Who is to say what is normal or not normal for each individual?
It wasn't rape, it wasn't child molestation. It was sex. So what.

It's interesting how reich wing nuts who not even a year ago wanted New Jersey to sink don't have any problems pushing a bill through for government as fast as possible.

I wonder why?

"...South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard and U.S. Sen. John Thune, R-S.D., flew over the affected areas during an aerial assessment Thursday afternoon. The state’s congressional delegation has also vowed to push ahead for quick passage of the stalled farm bill to provide immediate financial relief to ranchers.

“We need to be doing everything we can to help the livestock producers whose livelihoods have been endangered by this storm,” Thune said in a statement.“Last weekend’s devastating storm is another example of why we need to complete work on the Farm Bill for our farmers and ranchers.”

Christen said passage of the legislation is critical for the region.

“It’s a disaster situation here, like a hurricane in other parts of the country,” she said.“We’re not looking for a handout or any kind of special subsidy, however, we’ve had a devastating loss to our industry. It’s critical to our economy in South Dakota and frankly the entire agriculture industry that we pass that. These cows feed a lot of this country.”..."

It Gets Worse for the GOP

How the excesses of the Bush administration led to the Tea Party and a different kind of Republican imprudence.

By W. James Antle III

Initially, the American people’s verdict on the government shutdown appeared to be “a pox on both their houses.” Republicans received plurality blame, but Barack Obama, Harry Reid, and both major parties took something of a hit in the early polls.

But as the shutdown has continued, public opinion is beginning to look as one-sided as it did in 1995-96, if it isn’t worse. The Republican Party’s favorability rating is at a record low, falling 10 points since September to just 28 percent. That’s the lowest for either major party since Gallup started asking the question in 1992.

A Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll found even worse results for the GOP. Most telling, approval of Obamacare—though still low—has risen since October 1 despite a rocky roll-out. This does not bode well for efforts to use the shutdown as leverage to defund Obamacare.

Polling is ephemeral and the 2014 elections are the political equivalent of a lifetime away. But none of the falsifiable predictions made by the proponents of this tactic have come true. They said that the Democrats would make major concessions to avoid a shutdown. But the Obama administration is trying to implement the Obamacare exchanges and the government is still shut down.

It was argued that the country would rise up and demand the defunding of Obamacare in response to this confrontation. There is no evidence of such a popular revolt, and some reason to think the shutdown is actually hurting opposition to Obamacare. It was said that President Obama and the Democrats would take the blame for shutting down the government over an unpopular law. Nearly every major poll shows the blame running in the other direction.

The Origins of Entitlement
By Robert Samuelson - April 9, 2012
WASHINGTON -- Would Franklin Roosevelt approve of Social Security? The question seems absurd. After all, Social Security is considered the New Deal's signature achievement. It distributes nearly $800 billion a year to 56 million retirees, survivors and disabled beneficiaries. On average, retired workers and spouses receive $1,839 dollars a month -- money vital to the well-being of millions. Roosevelt would surely be proud of this, and yet he might also have reservations. Social Security has evolved into something he never intended and actively opposed.
It has become what was then called "the dole" and is now known as "welfare." This forgotten history clarifies why America's budget problems are so intractable.

Why Social Security is welfare
We don't call Social Security "welfare" because it's a pejorative term, and politicians don't want to offend. So their rhetoric classifies Social Security as something else when it isn't. Here is how I define a welfare program: First, it taxes one group to support another group, meaning it's pay-as-you-go and not a contributory scheme where people's own savings pay their later benefits. And second, Congress can constantly alter benefits, reflecting changing needs, economic conditions and politics. Social Security qualifies on both counts.
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/...
People need to stop focusing on the Social Security retirement program and refocus on SSI. That is the program that needs closer scrutiny. After all, SSI isn't self-funded. It is paid for by U.S. Treasury general funds. And it is running amok.

Since 1990, the number of disabled-worker beneficiaries has increased 84%. Repeat 84%!!! And, asa a result, the number of disabled Medicare beneficiaries has increased nearly 70 percent since 1990. This just isn't acceptable. We need to reevaluate how we pay SSI to premature children and take a look at why disability retirements are being handed out like candy.

That's where the red ink is....not in the self-funded Social Security program.

The Social Security Trust Fund is an easy fix....raise the retirement age by one year. Not so much with SSI. It's a monster that is out of control.

100,000 cattle feared dead after early South Dakota snowstorm

By
Manuel Bojorquez

Cattle ranchers hit hardest in S.D. blizzardplay Cattle ranchers hit hardest in S.D. blizzard


Giant burial pits have been dug in the Black Hills of South Dakota-- for cattle lost in a surprise snowstorm 10 days ago.

As many as 100,000 head are feared dead and financial losses may be as high as $1.25 million dollars. The federal government shutdown has only made things worse.

Nothing could prepare Scott Reder and his wife, Angela, for what the melting snow has revealed.

There were places where there were dead cows for as far as the eye could see.

"After a while you almost get numb," Angela Reder said. "You come upon another one and you come upon another one."

Said Scott Reder: "We embraced. We just wept. What can you do?"

South Dakota's cattle were still in summer pastures when the blizzard hit. They had not grown out their winter coats. The animals were fully exposed to blinding snow and 70 mile per hour winds. Some wandered for miles before collapsing and suffocating in snow drifts.

"The day after the storm I started counting cattle that were dead of ours and I got sick to my stomach," Scott Reder said.

He lost 200 animals, nearly half of his herd. Other ranchers lost everything.

"My biggest fear is that the people that lost livestock won't be able to recover," Scott Reder said. "You pray for them and you hope that they get guidance and have the ability to dig out of that, but that's a big hole."

Scott Reder
/ CBS News

Ranchers can't report their losses to the Agriculture Department because government offices are closed. And relief programs that might offer help are part of a farm bill that has been delayed by congressional gridlock.

"It affects not only the ranchers but it affects the business people," Scott Reder said. "It's just such a large trickle effect. It's gonna be seen for a long time to come in this area."

As devastating as this is here consumers probably will not see a big increase in beef prices because South Dakota provides only a fraction of the nation's supply. But the Reder family's loss already exceeds $250,000.
