We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I was going to say more but I pressed the wrong key, plus I think I spelled his name wrong. It should be Bezmenov. He did some interviews and seminar classes in 1983-1985 that can be viewed on Youtube. He was a KGB defector and he spoke of the Soviets plans to subvert the US that sound prophetic today. I can't find anything on him after 1985. Checked Wiki and Google. Did the KGB get him or is he undercover. He also used the name Tomas Schuman.
Hey... I wonder if Muslim men can last longer than half a minute with those 72 virgins? Do they get a bottle of PeePeeNumb when they blow up a bunch of people? Is that their eternal reward, Leag?.... sex that lasts longer than 30 seconds?
um... That's not even sex if you ask me. And what good is lasting up to 4 long minutes if your manly intimidatia is dead?
What's your cure, Leag? A pre-sex crawfish pinch?
"Greenie stuff" above. I agree with Tigerhawk. It's all rather pathetic, and inferior to the 'real' stuff. That Tesla auto for $119,000 [gasp, squawk!] What a con. The batteries, which are VERY expensive, deteriorate faster the more you use them and have to be replaced at tremendous cost a couple of times a year. Don't be bribed or fooled into buying this lemon. The other "greenie stuff," whether it's food, or non-perishable goods, is a waste of money better spent on something good and real that lasts.
My rule is, if you use the thing one or more times a day, whether it's furniture or kitchen equipment or bathroom equipment, buy top quality and you'' never be sorry. As far as food is concerned, I go by one rule; if Julia Child would buy it, so would I. Which eliminates most of the tacky semi-prepared foods, all fake margarines, tacky snack foods like pork rinds, leaving such things as real butter, bone-in chicken breasts, nice prosciuttos, salamis, and other delicious things like Havarti and Emmenthaler and white Vermont cheddar to put on crackers to go with your evening libations. And great stuff like short ribs with Korean barbecue sauce, roast duck breasts, veal chops, et cetera et cetera et cetera.
