Yes.
There is that mid range of being attractive enough for society but not one's personal cup of tea. That helps keep things tamped down.
And then there are a few women who although I initally wanted, I was rebuffed,and then over time in the course of a friendship I realized how much of a nut case or nut situation she was, and that no sex would of EVER been worth the mess and the hassle or the soap opera. That tames the Johnson like nothing else!
You're so GD reasonable - how could I disagree?!

But still......my mind keeps going there..:))

I know what you mean though about the "Fatal Attraction" type chicks. Things can definitely be more trouble than it was ever worth.

You think about Bill Clinton and how he could risk so much for so little. Happens all the time. Compromised judgment. Big brain vs little brain etc.

Probably because Bill either had the personality or the money to avoid the ramifications. Us normal working Joes are not that gifted or fortunate, and we have to live where we excrete. I think that is a big difference between me and Bill.

Conspiracy theorists flummoxed in face of actual scandals

http://www.salon.com/2013/05/15/conspiracy_th...

"...For some of Obama’s biggest and most imaginative critics, the abundance of scandal stinks to high heaven and suggests the White House is intentionally downing itself in controversy — for some reason. Jon Stewart predicted the IRS scandal would confirm every anti-Obama conspiracy theory out there, but instead, Michele Bachmann, Rush Limbaugh, and Alex Jones smell a rat about the scandals, themselves (call it a meta-conspiracy).

They seem to have gotten so good at scandal alchemy that they don’t know what to do when someone hands them solid gold. When handed a real conspiracy, they instead are building a new conspiracy on top of it that dismissies the old one..."

Conspiracy theorists flummoxed in face of actual scandals...

...For some of Obama’s biggest and most imaginative critics, the abundance of scandal stinks to high heaven and suggests the White House is intentionally downing itself in controversy — for some reason. Jon Stewart predicted the IRS scandal would confirm every anti-Obama conspiracy theory out there, but instead, Michele Bachmann, Rush Limbaugh, and Alex Jones smell a rat about the scandals, themselves (call it a meta-conspiracy).

They seem to have gotten so good at scandal alchemy that they don’t know what to do when someone hands them solid gold. When handed a real conspiracy, they instead are building a new conspiracy on top of it that dismissies the old one.

In an interview with WorldNetDaily — so we already know it’s going to be good — Bachmann said she thought the Obama administration intentionally released embarrassing news about the IRS targeting the Tea Party in some kind of elaborate Wag the Dog-style plot to distract from Benghazi:

Bachmann said the IRS announcement of misbehavior was intended to provoke conservatives and draw their anger and attention.

“I was in that Benghazi hearing,” she told WND.“I think the Obama administration is desperate to spin Benghazi, and they can’t. I think they saved this story up for a day like today so that conservatives would focus on this admission.”

It won’t work, she insisted.

“Conservatives can handle two shocking stories at the same time,” she said.“Both are equally unconstitutional and call into question the very president.”

This makes no sense, even for Bachmann. Why would the White House want to trade a 70 percent bogus scandal for a 70 percent real one? And if they did want to distract from Benghazi, there has to be a better way than manufacturing negative information about yourself. This is a bit like a child intentionally peeing himself to “distract” his classmates from the fact that his pants just fell down....

I try to cite only generally accepted credible sources. The NYTimes has their ups and downs, but their biggest transgression to date (the run-up to the Iraq war) was a sin of ommission leading to bias, which is a RADICALLY different animal than the Alex Jones stuff that is posted daily, and one that has be publicly addressed. OTOH Alex Jones routinely does not use reputably acceptable sources, and many of the stories are not independently corroborated.
As of my other criticism of you....often you just post one liners and talking points that really dont address the issue at hand (usually because you refuse to read the fundamental discussion).
That's a critique of IRRELEVANCE more than an attack on the validity of the source.
Think about this.

This is just another case where there is documentary proof and people reject it because "the courts have rejected it".

That doesn't mean it isn't true , that just means some politicians in robes are running interference for the system.

And if you go back to when the amendment was ratified, the wording that was rejected was stunning. The vague wording in the sixteenth amendment seems to have been picked on purpose.

After investigating the history of the 16th Amendment, the following
defects were found in the ratification of the Income Tax Amendment
by the forty-eight states then existing, three-fourths of which (thirty-
six) were needed to ratify it:
1. Not ratified by state legislature and so reported
2. Not ratified by state legislature, but reported as ratified
3. Missing or incomplete evidence of ratification, but reported as ratified
4. Failure of Governor or other official to sign, although required by State
Constitution
5. Other violation of State Constitution in ratification process
6. Other procedural irregularity making ratification doubtful
7. Approval, but with change in wording, accepted as ratification of
original version
8. Approval, but with change in spelling, accepted as ratification of
original version
9. Approval, but with change in capitalization, accepted as ratification of
original version
10. Approval, but with change in punctuation, accepted as ratification of
original version

I don't have a problem with services provided, it's in the manner that they are paid for.

You shouldn't have to pay foe my kids education no more than I should pay for yours.

There is a gas tax that pays for roads, but your politicians can't seem to stop putting their hands in the cookie jar.

By that logic, you probably think abortion is still illegal.

Roe vs Wade was just some guys in robes making stuff up?

Do you know it was the Supreme Court that decided the 2nd Amendment applied to everyone, not just militias (as stated in the Constitution)?:

"Nor is the right involved in this discussion less comprehensive or valuable: "The right of the people to bear arms shall not be infringed." The right of the whole people, old and young, men, women and boys, and not militia only, to keep and bear arms of every description, not such merely as are used by the militia, shall not be infringed, curtailed, or broken in upon, in the smallest degree; and all this for the important end to be attained: the rearing up and qualifying a well-regulated militia, so vitally necessary to the security of a free State.."

LOL on the dupe post- Salon is great, isnt it? I like Slate too.

It is relevant to our discussion. Its a mindset, not a fact grounded activity. Probably explains Stalin's and Mao's purges (and a few others). Left alone in a room, they would eat each other.

From your article;
Meanwhile, Alex Jones is dropping the ball almost entirely. Long
before anyone paid attention to him, Jones was harassing the
Bilderberg Group , an annual meeting of 140 prominent American
and Europeans that conspiracy theorists have long asserted is the
kind of politburo of the global deep state. Jones had a big “scoop”
this week on the Bilderberg, reporting that they’re “merging with
Google under the stewardship of Google CEO Eric Schmidt, a
regular Bilderberg attendee.”
As it turns out, Both Google and Bilderberg are holding meetings
within days of each other at The Grove Hotel in the UK, and “we
were able to confirm in conversations with hotel managers and
others that the Grove is now a central base for Google’s agenda to
control the global political and technological landscape.”
For years and I mean years the media claimed that bilderberg didn't exist, that it was a conspiracy theory.
