That should make it zero pressure then. Your expectations of how it should go down, just think of it as an opportunity to have fun. Whatever you think your own particular insecurity is, work on that a little. Can't be looks cuz you look fine. If it's your current status, job or whatever, know we all deal with not being the "perfect" package. Don't sweat it. People (generally) don't bite.

My first vote for POTUS was Dwight Eisenhower and it's been all Repubs for POTUS since.
WilliamCharles comments on Mar 30, 2019:
It should be noted that Ike had a tax rate that helped build the nation's infrastructure and it was a time of a strong middle class. Reagan helped gut that and his policies began the destruction of the middle class. Ironically, Reagan and Nixon would be considered too liberal for many of today's conservative hardliners.

In this era of digital archives, it upsets me to no end that I can't find this particular Playboy story online (you really could read it for the articles at one time). It was titled "Underground at the Daily Planet" by Craig Vetter in a 1971 issue. It had a secretly counterculture Jimmy Olson grumbling as he wrote, "Everyone knows he's Superman! You can see that shitty red S under the cheap white shirts he wears." It was some hilariously insane satire.

On a somewhat related note (origins). It seems to me from antiquity and beyond, that every religion boils down to giving god a new name. You come up with a name that resonates, and whatever backstory arises will satisfy a certain number of adherents, enough to stake your claim in the pantheon. Your interactions will evolve over time in conjunction with longevity, and whatever power struggles took place, both inner and outwards. It's why I like to use the Adventure Time "Oh, my Glob!" or FSM references as their backstories appeal to me. As an atheist/agnostic, can also speak in the common vernacular, with its very usage revealing a substantial bit of godview even with limited knowledge of either. Imagine someone sincerely asking, "Who are these Gods I am unfamiliar with?" I'd love to give the backstory, but would still promise never to go door to door with it (unless there was money in it. Your approach might be different).

Have to admit being to being a bit surprised at some of the negative reactions based on it not being appropriate somehow in a singles/mingles/chat group? Because of the cartoon format? Because it is seen as too risque? Because if taken literally that it cannot be thought of as anything but offensive? I thought it prompted some interesting and fun discussion, both pro and con. Singles discussing various aspects of sexualty (in group appropriate terms of course) seems to be a no-brainer for a group where you'd want to get a feel for the mindset of people you might want to date, but then maybe that's just me. I usually excpect this much pearl clutching from the god-botherers, but it's easily just as possible that I'm incredibly boorish with an utter lack of self-awareness. Perhaps I should just go back to lurking with the occasional short little generic tidbits of approval or solidarity. Good luck to all of us in our individual quests to connect with that potentially special someone in meaningful ways.

Last call for delete or stay votes. Only a modest amount of feedback so far either way. Anyone feel really strongly about this with regard to either position? I also didn't see it show up to the category I thought I moved it to. I'd hate to lose the comments. Maybe I can leave it here with a mea culpa pinned to the top of this thread. Any mods able to do that? Brand me with the scarlet letter, throw me in the stocks, and use this as an example of what *not* to post. Let it serve as a warning to the rest.

I actually was quite astonished that two of the most adventurous and playful lovers I ever had the pleasure to become intimate with both said the same thing to me. "I liked our lovemaking because you *made* me do things." While this may sound troubling on its surface, it wasn't like that at all. It was a case of two lovers wanting to please the other and were alert to the cues of what was giving each the most pleasure. It reminded me of a comic who was describing what good lovemaking becomes. He said that if you've ever seen two tigers mating, there's all that raw power just barely held in check, as they wend their way through the dance as it were.

A 50-Year Occupation: Israel’s Six-Day War Started With a Lie
WilliamCharles comments on Mar 29, 2019:
"The trick of declaring war against the armed resistance and then attacking the resisters’ unarmed kin as well as the sur­rounding population with the most gruesome products of Death-Science; this trick is not new. American Pioneers were pioneers in this too; they made it standard practice to declare war on indigenous warriors and then to murder and burn villages with only women and children in them. This is already modern war, what we know as war against civilian populations; it has also been called, more candidly, mass murder or genocide. Maybe I shouldn’t be surprised that the perpetrators of a Pogrom portray themselves as the victims, in the present case as victims of the Holocaust. Herman Melville noticed over a century ago, in his analysis of the metaphysics of Indian-hating, that those who made a full-time profession of hunting and murdering indigenous people of this continent always made themselves appear, even in their own eyes, as the victims of manhunts. The use the Nazis made of the International Jewish Conspiracy is better known: during all the years of atrocities defying belief, the Nazis considered themselves the victimized. It’s as if the experience of being a victim gave exemption from human solidarity, as if it gave special powers, as if it gave a license to kill."

WilliamCharles comments on Mar 26, 2019:
I woke up this morning to author Arthur Brooks on C-SPAN speaking about loving your enemies at the AIPAC conference. I just posted this on his Facebook page. :-----: Just watched your AIPAC speech. I do not see how there is any love in supporting an apartheid state murdering the innocent on a regular basis. The love I see is from those working for justice for *all* the people of Palestine. What I see from AIPAC is the constant smearing of those involved in this endeavor. What I see from the AIPAC side is the type of people who mock the horrific death of murdered peace activist Rachel Corrie by holding an annual pancake breakfast. The side that elevates the Hebron mosque shooter to the status of national hero. The side that hypocritically points the finger at Iran for their legal nuclear program as signers of the NNPT as they lie about their own undeclared nukes. I see your side as continuing to turn truth on its head. I see your side on the wrong side of history every bit as much as the former apartheid regime of South Africa. I see with much pain how much AIPAC perverts and corrupts our own government with their disdain for truth-tellers. Your message reminds me of Elie Wiesel's message of a commitment to justice for the downtrodden, that incredibly never made it to encompassing the beleaguered people of Palestine, who have suffered under the boot heel of the Zionist invaders for decades. That, I feel, will be coming to an end soon. Because of true love. Not the lip service couched in words of love you spoke in the support of those who would continue to brutalize the people of Palestine. That is the difference.
Yeah, we get told a lot of things that turn out not to be true.

I grew up with the conventional wisdom believing that the Israelis were the "white hats" and that the Palestinians/Arabs/Muslims were the "black hats."

I largely credit many outstanding Jewish voices (my close friend Bernie the Attorney for one) for opening my eyes.

To the surviving people of Palestine; I am truly so very sorry that you, your families, your neighbors, and your country suffer so as a brutal slaughter is waged across your land. I have tried to remain informed and active politically so that I could do whatever I can to help prevent my country from inflicting further such tragedies on others. As you might imagine, sometimes I too feel very helpless in this regard. You all have done much to remind me that sometimes courage can be as simple a thing as to just keep moving forward. And for that, you have my sincere respect, admiration, and gratitude. Please forgive us for not doing more to protect you. To the dead, there is nothing I can say to lessen the pain. You are missed. ~ LanceThruster

WilliamCharles comments on Mar 24, 2019:
"Russiagate skeptics will be vindicated as we expected to be, but those responsible for this fake neocon intrigue got a new Cold War, record defense budgets, and a McCarthyite political atmosphere to denigrate opponents of permanent war,” tweeted journalist Max Blumenthal. “A waste of energy and a setback for peace.” “Early on, I argued with Rep. Jamie Raskin that Trump should be opposed on a principled, progressive basis – not with a phony intel intrigue cooked up by spooks and Clinton dead enders,” Blumenthal added. “Like most Dems, he went with Russiagate & wound up emboldening Trump.” “For almost three years I’ve been lambasted every single day for ‘defending Trump’ because I rejected that there was ample evidence for a Trump/Russia global espionage conspiracy,” tweeted journalist Michael Tracey. “You know who was really ‘defending Trump’ after all? The people who promoted this nonsense.” “I’m not gleeful – just disgusted that much of the US media spent 2 years spreading baseless (but very dangerous) conspiracy theories and mindlessly believing what their CIA, NSA and FBI sources whispered to them without seeing evidence – yet again,” tweeted journalist Glenn Greenwald."

WilliamCharles comments on Mar 22, 2019:
I've been providing a few of what I think are counter-arguments to some of their assertions, mostly in the form of links, but there's not a lot of desire to lock horns in the arena of ideas by the opposition, who in their conversations with each other, are unwavering in their certainty of the superiority of their worldview. A throwaway acknowledgement of the ills of crony capitalism by the group creator, but that's about it. In my time here (agnostic..com) , I've found little desire across the board by anyone to continue any debate/discussion beyond a few initial replies back and forth, but that's most definitely everyone's individual prerogative. I'm at least encouraged the the left is more willing to critique their own side through a clear lense. I've seen nothing of the sort at any level by the opposition. They merely ignore the many flaws of the "champions" of their side. In fact, I ask the group creator to give me a name of any "champion" of the economic model she supports so I could read up on it... but nothing but crickets. If you've ever seen right winger Stephen Moore (AEI?), he's embarrassing as to the level of his incompetence. This is the chucklehead that Dolt 45 wants to nominate for the Fed if I'm not mistaken. I could name a bunch for my views starting with Chris Hedges (for a critique of the current system). Notice the otherwise dispassionate name calling here, @TheMiddleWay. Over there, I've largely eschewed such language. Anyway, make note that even though I've answered the @Renickulous interrogative, no attempt to respond to any of the questions I put to him. Over at Republican Atheists he's been like a gnat... annoying, but with zero to offer anywhere he's shown his face.
Progressive gun owners - What are your thoughts on calls to ban certain firearms or firearm types ...
WilliamCharles comments on Mar 22, 2019:
Assault rifles are already illegal in my state, though it is common to call the semiautomatic rifle I own an assault rifle. I remember a law passed to outlaw firearms with scary looking features, such as with the TEC-9 handgun (though with that particular weapon it was mostly the high capacity magazines at issue). There were other weapons that had the exact same firepower, but if it looked military (flash suppressor, pistol grip, etc.) it may have made the ban list. Again, it makes me wonder how easily some are willing to forfeit a right of someone else, just because they think it doesn't apply to them. I'm all for keeping weapons out of the hands of those who pose a threat and favor sensible restrictions (domestic abusers being at the top of the list). But but the GOP always gets lot of mileage out of wedge issues around election time, and as a progressive firearms owner, I think my Constitutional rights come into play as well. The 2nd Amendment is not about a right to hunt. At the time it was written it protected private ownership of the most advanced weapons of their time. Yes, I know about their place in the history of keeping slaves subdued, but we also have the threat of an actual civil war at some point. The goddamn Yam-in-Chief just talked about his biker, LEO, and military supporters taking things into ther own hands. The God, guns, and gays crowd is heavily armed. I'll still have a flower or two to place down the barrel of their rifles, but a Plan B is not an unwarranted precaution either. I'm deep into a politically red county where I live. To those that think there should be no private firearm ownership, work to change the Constitution. To those that think the effectiveness needs to be restricted, would black powder muzzle loaders be cumbersome enough for you? I own a historical curio. The same Mosin-Nagant Soiet sniper rifle Vasely Zaytsev used in WWII. It is technically a combat weapon, though single round bolt action. If someone murders with this type of firearm, would someone else make the argument to turn them all in as well? I once attended a Firing Line taping on internet freedom back in the day. Arianna Huffington was on the panel (before she became a liberal) and said that if outlawing internet freedom would save just *one* child from being abused... that it would be worth it. How many here would agree with that logic?
