RE: Obama did it again! Regulation of Wall street!

some reform bill... Goldman Sachs has already found a loophole big enough you can drive a fleet a armored cars one thru... and if one finanicial institution can do, well, need i say more?

RE: is chilvary dead

Well a lesson I learned is simply this if you gonna hold a door open for one you should really consider getting the door or package for another. Chivalry as I was told is not only assisting far maidens but all maidens, and all the while you helping the one the others are observing. Or so the lady who was to drunk to walk onher own told me wheni ofered assistance.

RE: New Book Says The Real Reason Women Have Sex

everyone when partnered with the right person can and will enjoy sex on all itss levels of intimacy... my thoughts anyway.

I've learned through trail and error, what books (self help/research) works some may/does not always work for others.
I see books like these being detrimental to some couples and individauls who read it.

RE: Forgive and Forget.

I have found myself, that even though i forgive, those that have endeared themselves to me or have become a part of my life i tend to forget the mistakes they and myself had made thru time... Course I also have forgot the math formula for Pi.(probably a good thing this memory loss stuff) I beleive the good will always out weigh the bad eventually... its those short term relationships that i can recall that has more bad memories than those long relationship I experienced.

RE: Do you want government controling your Healthcare ?

Between the pharmaceutical,doctors,medical professionals, and those insurance lobbyists I'm not quite sure if Our government actually is controlling anything but the rhetoric they are instructed to tell us.

funny yet sad, but I think more and more everyday that our elected officials in state and federal positions are merely citizen lobbyists... and currently corporation and special interests group lobbyists outnumber the citizen lobbyists 10 ifnot 20 to 1.

RE: Existence of God v Science

science says black holes exists/are real... well, I disappeared for awhile ...into a vacuum where many other things vanished...A blackhole?, who knows?

However, I have returned to connecting singles.... who is thanking God now???

hello all grin

RE: Friendship first.

Thank you for wording this so well, I've thought this for a long time. I've have/had people introduce me to others with "Meet my friend...", yet in truth I know nothing about them and them about me except maybe first names or that I see them at sporting events or parties or the local pub. Even online we share common interests or lifestyles. Yes I believe that term "Friend(s)and Relationship" has somehow lost its true meaning with the advancement of technology.

Good thread Sommerauerthumbs up

RE: Is Obama clueless on economic/fiscal policy?

this always confuses me donations... charitable, yet those that give expect a tax break?


I see it this way if someone or organization wants to give a chartable donation then why at tax time they get to deduct from thier owed taxes which in turns deplete the tax revenue which in turns causes me to have to pay more in taxes down the road.
it's like giving by proxy and guess what I cannot aford to be chartible with my funds.... now Time I can donate actual labor and work I can donate... but its funny I cannot deduct that on my taxes... Go figure.

RE: If in a marriage, if all you do is fight, you should.....

theres the tricky part finding a counselor that you both
respect/like... another fight then ensues.

have friends and they tried the counseling and after only three sessions the counselor told them both divorce was the best route for them... they both called the counselor a quack...laugh

they still together and still argue all the time.

RE: MEN WHO COOK ARE SEXY

Well, i just returned from preparing my mother and father breakfast.
nothing elaborate fresh squeezed Orange juice, French toast and a fruit salad with fresh ground coffee... I think what my mom enjoyed the most was I cleaned up afterwards. I'm not exactly the clean as you go type of cook, and she finally had a chance to appreciate all those counter top appliances which she rarely uses.(past mothers day gifts)

I hope all the Mothers on CS have a memorable day.

RE: What do you think about the Police?

Damn mouse ...My apologies

RE: What do you think about the Police?

of late in my area it seems by no fault of their own they have been delegated to raise revenue for the governments. traffic tickets have increased.( 5 miles over, burned out tail light, no proof of insurance on person (yet computers in all cruisers)... seed hunters on floor boards) In the past their presence brought a sense of security, now I worry that I'll be ticketed because my veggie garden resembles noxious weeds, or because I chose top walk home from a neighborhood tavern i get ticketed for public intoxication.

All this and why because they are so under manned that a report of shots fired or a fight or brawl or domestic dispute,safety requires they wait until back-up is available.

Yeah they are getting a raw deal, as fast as they can arrest, the accused in on the street... Even our county sheriff said on TV it takes 3 to 4 convictions of auto theft before one will get jail time... yeah its like emptying a bathtub with a coffee cup and the spigot is running full force.

But as my sainted mother says " I don't care how many tickets they (police) write as long as my property taxes don't go up." So, on that note I'll offer any officer I encounter an ink pen, as long as the ink is not used against me.

Yeah I think with what tools they have and are able to do we all should say a sincere "Thank You" to the officers we may encounter in our daily lives.

RE: Sex threads

I think because of this electronic venue they like having the anonymity of sorts, same for those who are brazenly bold with their responses, that applies to both male and female.

Jails overcrowded, state budget cuts... what type of lawbreakers should remain in jail

It's no an easy answer but one that maybe the public at large should have the final say.

Sure everyone, including the local, county, and state governments are forced to make cutbacks, but when it comes to reducing staff and closing jails and prisons... what type of criminals do you believe should be/remain in custody whats your top 4?

RE: Unemployed



and yes I've been called a "Tool" a couple of timesrolling on the floor laughing

RE: Unemployed

the down side is their boredom factor, make sure you are not their tool to ease the boredom they have from all that free time.

RE: Unemployed

sure, in fact it has its benefits... no scheduling conflicts.

no I can't I have a report/ presentation due, no "sorry honey, I have to work a double" or "have to work this weekend."

RE: ever u think/feel lack of love ?

I think...NO I know this is not what I lack or feel, it is intimacy that I crave more than anything else.

RE: Bet This Didnt Make Newspapers All Over The World!

I have at one time or another in the past ten years felt one or more of these sentiments, and these where fueled by the medias desperate need to increase subscriptions and revenue. sure there are radical Muslims just as there are radicals Christians and all other ilk of belief systems. I can only suggest and point out that using the media as the source of irrefutable fact and truth is and has become the biggest mistake any common citizen or human being can make. this hatred she speaks is as logical as condemning an entire family for the actions of one of its members example the columbine incident should we not also purge the world of th9s strand of DNA in order to assure no other member of that family will breed and perhaps give life to anohter Wacko?

As Mercedes says its just one persons opinion, well I felt it only proper to post mine here. A sad commentary on how we as educated individuals can malign an entire ethnic or nationality for the actions of a few. I hope the rest of the world does not judge me by the actions /inactions of an American corporation or political party.

Relationship style or type

from your past experiences how do most of your relationships start?
Whether it be business, friends or dating are you one that starts off with a bang or slow and steady?

some of us ask for a date at the first encounter, others after a few meetings

some are great on first couple of dates yet fade as time goes on while others are the opposite. personally I have a uncanny knack for talking myself in and out of a womans bed in one sentence on initial meetings but after they take the time to see the whole picture they tend to warm-up to my personality... much like saying one tests well but when it comes to applying what they know they are definitely lacking in ability.
whats your communication type style?

RE: Randomly Post The First Thing That Pops Into Your Head Thread

I do not want to go to work today.

RE: Would You Be Prepared To Do This??????

A friend would understand your situation/predicament. I never was one to believe just because I like someone, my friends or date should like them too. But I would definitely make my friend aware of the situation that was being asked of me... afterall its only a date or 2, its not like its a lifelong decision I would be committing to.
Lets face it the older I get the harder it is to find someone who grabs my attention enough to be worthy of dating repeatedly.

I know my friends would understand and allow the relationship to takes its course.

RE: is it better to get your heart broken by several different guys or by just the one person?

without mistakes how can anyone learn what is really the best way.

I have found thru trial and error that those of us that have attempted loving relationship with multiple partners find it easier to disseminate the good and bad in other future relationships.

Sure there will always be those who get it right the first time, but those numbers are dwindling with each passing day. I think because of all the information that is readily available to us all.
I myself have been shown pictures from a phone cam, even had one do a background check on me (the untrusting b*tch)... these things where not available to the masses in the past. Sometimes I have to think too much information in the beginning of any relationship is detrimental to love growing at an unbridled pace.

so I've wondered off the track here my apologies,

Final answer taste the different fruits that your world has to offer especially if "At first you don't succeed".

RE: Obama the first 100 days! Two of three americans giving him Thumbs up!




which makes me wonder who manufactered the equipment necessary for us to be such a force during that war...

RE: Obama the first 100 days! Two of three americans giving him Thumbs up!

from my perspective he has "accomplished" nothing... just enacted alot of different "possible" solutions.

that dude Arlen Specter now he's the wild card.

RE: Should Texas seced from the Union if the US Federal Goverment continues with what its been doing?

If they choose to secede it should be under the United States conditions/guidelines not theirs...if they choose to quit the U.S. then U.S. should treat them hostile neighbors.

RE: “By September We’ll Have CONFISCATED ALL PRIVATELY OWNED GUNS..."

maybe in other countries without democracy it will occur.... remember the prohibition??? agreed the newer weapons will become harder to own but..those already owned in America nope not gonna happen... As Americans we all abide by the law if they make sense or will help better our lives. I've yet to met someone who believes outlawing guns is a prudent idea or path to take for world peace.

let the political parties rant and rave, bottom line past governments have tries and failed to do this... to many things are screwed up in America for this "chicken little" rant to feasibly possible, not in America anyway.

However HL your diligence in making others aware of who in government is pursuing this path is appreciated.

I like to think I'm an educated voter who has the intelligence to know when my government proposes a bill that a "yes" vote means "no". sadly there are too many other issues that the jerks in D.C. will not address.

We as Americans will always have Anarchy with which to respond if and when our government chooses to rewrite our constitutional rights without our individual right to vote.

RE: How many people think that one's astrological sign is a true indicator of compatibility?

If the sun and moons position effects how we each react then all those other things in space do also from an exploding star to a black hole most probably unseen yet by most of the earthlings here.

if one can believe we came from one couple ( adam & eve)then how far of a stretch is it to believe what occurs in the cosmos has a direct effect on all of our personality traits both good and bad.

so yeah theres something to it, but much like a child looking thru a single telescope and saying they can see all of the galaxy at once, horoscopes are accurate. Its funny that meteors and black holes exist in space are just being discovered are not formulated in these horoscope calculations. but only knowing my moon and rising and sun sign I can honestly say it is more of a prediction/educated guessing than an absolute.
