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.
An odalisque is a Moslem's slave concubine, but all guys could use a bunch of them around the place, as long as they have sweet and agreeable temperaments and are willing to give the wife a hand with the chores. Plus no burkhas required when they are lounging around ye olde wood-stove-heated New England harem.
Now Meta, let's let the guys have their fun. I just wish they'd publish an occasional picture of a dishy guy or guys to, you know, kinda balance things out. Like a picture I saw on Lex's site last year of a bunch of handsome SEALs running on the beach. That really got my blood pressure humming.
And besides, it was patriotic. A slam dunk, don't you think?
Didn't G_d ban the use of mirrors such that folks wouldn't see naked bodies, even their own?
Oh, different G_d. I must be thinking of the one that puts chicks in black sacks with little slots to look out of.
We really shouldn't blame women for being so beautiful, shaming them to lives of obscurity, so that we can wag our fingers at debased disgusting whores like Katie Curic saying: "we're more moral than you". Should we?
