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.
It is no disadvantage for those who thrill at enmity also to profess a universal brotherhood. There are many men who do not profess any such idea, or who do not do so with the demanded zeal, and who therefore make a most fitting object for hatred.
Is this a man, woman ,or transvestite, in the Maker's Mark add? At first I thought it was BD dressed in red stocking. Untill I saw the tattoos, most mommie's boys don't have tattoos. I'm not fond of them either, especially on women. I can't for the life of me find why people find them attractive. I think its a picture of a transvestite.
No. I changed my mind. BD with red stockings , and wash off tattoos.
jappy ... I wonder about young people who get large and disfiguring tattoos myself. When they're fresh, and the skin under them firm, they look like graffiti. Hardly pleasing, but at least you can tell what they're supposed to represent. When the skin on which they're engraved gets old and wrinkly and saggy, however, they are really ugly. From the promontory of old age, I look at young people and delight in their beauty and youth. Even the ones with rather plain features are pleasing. They don't even know what's going to happen, poor dears. Why complicate matters by engraving their skin with strange symbols which will fade and distort over the years so few can tell what they used to resemble.
