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 bemused as I thought back to those halcyon male chauvinist days of the 1960’s and 70’s when I, along with virtually all American males, were berated because, per the feminists, we supposedly only viewed women as the sum of their bodily parts. It now appears, based on the words of that pillar of intellectual prowess Ashley Judd and others, that women are, in fact, the sum of their bodily parts. By the way ladies, congratulations: you have, in public, far exceeded whatever you think the banter regarding women is in the privacy of male locker rooms. So now what is the sequel to grab attention, as so much time remains in the Trump presidency? There aren’t many options remaining beyond an endless cavalcade of public nudity as these so-called feminist groups have pretty much plumbed the depths of verbal depravity. But the nation will be watching and waiting for the curtain to rise on the next act of the Feminist Follies.
A problem is that many of these people seem to lack the physical and personality charms which appeal to men, so I suspect that nudity is not a good political tactic. If men want to connect with harsh, cranky, or manly women who lack feminine charm, they can just link up with guys and get the real deal. Nobody cares nowadays.

Wow! I thought this was the maggiesfarm website. Guess I was accidentally redirected to the playboy website. So much for the sexual purity and marital faithfulness of professing christians, not to mention married christians. I will get my news elsewhere, as a naked butt does not constitute legitimate news! Plus, I chose to remain faithful to my wife in thought, word, and deed! Shame on the person who posted this lewd picture!!
Wound way to tight. Hope you can get your priorities straight. The world, our country is going to hell in a handbasket and the sight of an attractive woman scared you that badly. Maybe all women should wear a hijab and a burqa.

Alan, buddy. You need a little sphincter relaxation! That image WAS outside the norm but apparently, it was included to make a very good point in context. ALL AMERICAN WOMEN would seem to hate being looked at with innocent, natural, normal pleasure IF YOU HEED THE WORDS of the current crop of "feminists" who themselves are quite happy to allow the likes of Madonna to have high profile participation in their latest sexual politics circus.
As far as Christians, I think Christ (Christ, not the church) was less demanding of guilt over unintentional exposure to temptation as much as he was trying to help you deal with suppressing that temptation,
To paraphrase Gertrude,The Queen in Shakespeare's "Hamlet", "You're making a real big deal out of a pretty girl's picture buddy. What DID IT make you feel, really?"
A perfect example of stage magician-style misdirection. I read the article twice, and the comments three times, always checking to see that they corresponded to the illustration, before I realized there was a link in there. The linked article was a big disappointment, since it was not illustrated. Not even a cat picture. Bah.
I'm tempted to buy a tractor. Just to get it tested.
Uh Sean, you are NOT getting old but you are mistaken. The lady is wearing "Stand-offs" (available in any good tractor store). Note that the platforms fit exactly into the rim well and the heels notch directly onto the outer seal rims. No ankle straps so they can kick-off easily when you need to wash-up.
Also, the lady is likely Marty "Wrench" McCarty, a John Deere demonstrator and former Marine. She's the one who takes a new owner through their "run-through". Obviously, she's not actually operating the tractor. What Marty's doing is showing us the secure climb-up bar and ample padding on the arm rest. Those of us who live outside of cities might also approve of Marty's thrift. Her shorts are cut-off Levi's after 3-4 Summer's worth of shortenings. Thank you M'am. Way too much waste in this world.
For anyone interested, the tractor is likely a John Deere 4000x, quarter yard bucket. This one's set for towing but it can be nicely rigged with a 448 back hoe. Overall, John Deere places this line between Residential and Field use.
Alan, I'm sorry you're offended by a good example of the Lord's fine work. As my grandfather would have said, "Never try to make a woman happy. The Lord already made them women and only a fool would try to improve on good work well done." The reason Wrench is wearing shorts is that it obviously a hot day and she wants us to understand that we're not gonna' burn our butts on the seat. Open cab John Deeres usually have Yellow seats so they don't heat up.
Mike, Sorry my friend but this is not "misdirection". Look at the heading. It clearly refers to "traction". That there's a tractor. 'Nuff said.
