    LOL...I must say, I am not a fan of stringy muscular women (from a physical perspective) I find it unattractive as a man, but I appreciate someone who takes the time to get that way.

    From a male/female perspective, it doesn’t float my boat. Looks too much like a guy in some cases.

    Now, a toned woman...sure...:)

    Back in the nineties, my wife and I were buying a new car. We were shopping around and went into a Saturn dealer, and the guy told us all about the car, its features, cost, etc. When we left, we had an idea about the car, and what we might get if we bought one. Not once did the guy even bother to compare it to any other brand.

    We went to a Ford dealer, and the guy asked what kind of cars we were looking at. When we told him we had looked at Saturns, he didn’t say a single word about the Ford Taurus we were thinking of. He spent 15 minutes on the drawbacks of Saturns.

    When we left, we talked about it, and both concluded we didn’t want to buy a Ford, because all the guy did was talk down the Saturn, and didn’t even try to compare the Ford to it. We both developed a deep distrust of the brand, dealer, and sales staff there.

    I feel exactly that same way when I hear a politician just attacking someone else. Sometimes it needs to be done, but when it is a one-trick pony...well, that should tell you something.

    For liberals, that is all they can offer.

    Here’s the thing: who CARES about “working people”? EVERYBODY is a working person, or should be. The whole “I care about the working man or woman” thing is a platitude mouthed by politicians.

    Care about “working people”? Who does that encompass and exclude?

    The entire phrase “working people” is liberal class warfare, and all politicians just mouth it. It is the same as kissing babies.

    Here is a deck of cards, each has a face of a famous politician on it. Take a card, any card. Hold it up to random people and say “I care about working people”. What kind of reaction would you get?

    That is one of the infuriating aspects of this, quite apart from the obvious negligence and malfeasance by those officials.

    When massive quantities of private data on citizens was hacked from the IRS computers, was a single person disciplined or fired? Not that I ever heard.

    When the EPA punched a hole in a mine out west and polluted a river with toxins leftover from mining operations (some said deliberately done, and I agree) did anyone even get so much as a slap on the hand?

    Now this?

    It is preaching to the choir here when we talk about the evils of federal bureaucracy, that has turned into a gigantic liberal jobs program that people can’t be disciplined in or fired from, but this is ridiculous.

    Nobody ever got hurt during that initiation ritual, but...I am amazed nobody ever did. There would be up to eight guys wrestling one guy (who was sometimes very strong, very big, or both) who would put up a spirited defense, tables and chairs being upended.

    It amazes me nobody ever got hurt, with all the metal structures, bulkheads, etc. because it sometimes turned into a mini-melee!

    We did have a famous non-initation incident, though. We had a new guy who reported to the squadron, and his arrival had been heralded by rumors that he was very accomplished in Tai Kwan Do (the rumor was, a “10th Degree”, though I have no idea if that is true or if there is even a “10th degree” black belt in any martial art!)

    Well, he went up to the flight deck the day after we left the states, and when he came back down, everyone was waiting for him in the line shack. He opened the hatch and walked in wearing his flight deck gear, goggles still down, and surveyed everyone waiting to jump him and said: “You can do what you want, but I won’t be responsible if anyone goes to Sick Bay.”

    Hehehehe...nobody moved to touch him! He was only about 5’4” very slight of build to the appearance, but...it turned out later when we saw him sparring in the hangar bay with a Marine who was well over 6 feet tall, and it was clear that the guy did know his art. He was the only guy I ever knew who got out of the greasing initiation!

    That was the Oriskany fire...a bad one.

    We had that one time initation ordeal as well that used that thick, sticky, black molybdenum based grease for a initiation “greasing” of new guys that would land you in the brig and get a dishonorable discharge today, I am certain of it.

    I was walking down a passageway one day, and saw this same ritual “greasing” in another part of the ship, where several guys had one guy, wrestling him through a hatch, pulling his legs and torso while he hung on in vain to the edge of the hatch...the thing I remember about was that they were all grinning madly, and even the guy who was about to get greased was laughing too, before he was swept from sight into the compartment! As I recall, the thing was, you had to resist. If you just got passive, they would smear you with the grease, and you would be greased again at some point until you fought back.

    Man, you must have been crazy! I know exactly the “DCA voice” that you referenced...I can hear it in my head as I read your account! Us airedales laughed about it, as we assumed the training in that voice must have been part of a class at your “A” school! Hehehehehe...”NOW HEAR THIS...THE SMOKING LAMP IS OUT!”

    I think those guys who played that prank on the sailor who fell asleep on watch must have tried to imitate that exact tone of voice, though much less in volume, when they said “MAN OVERBOARD! MAN OVERBOARD!”

    Too funny. I would never thought have using that in a prank. I can’t remember where I read it, but there was an Army infantryman in Europe that his buddies said could imitate the sound of an incoming Nazi 88 shell to perfection, and nearly incited fisticuffs more than once when he used it to wake some guy up who nearly crapped his pants!

    Segments of the black community view the dearth of businesses, restaurants, grocery stores, retail, etc. in many parts of their communities as racism, but it is nothing of the sort.

    Retails which often operate on small margins, can’t just write off the extra money needed for security to protect against burglaries in addition to physical security such as gates and other measures that cost real money.

    Instead of putting up with it, they just go find greener pastures, or they never go in those neighborhoods to begin with.

    And that, to some people, is racism. I call it sensible business.

    That silly stuff just seems to go hand in hand with young, stupid, testosterone filled guys in the military. LOL, I was one of them.

    When I served on the USS JFK back in the Seventies, there was a sailor on watch one night on the Port Quarter (Left side of the ship, all the way towards the back, for you lubbers out there...:)

    It was about 0300, the sailor was sitting in a chair, peacoat on, soundpowered phones on, looking out at the ocean and...he fell asleep. A couple of his buddies came down to say hello, saw he was sleeping, and had a great idea for a prank.

    They crawled over and tied the shoelaces on his boondockers together. They retreated back into the hatch and then called out in semi-hushed tones “Man Overboard! Man Overboard!”

    Well, it had the desired effect. The sleeping sailor jumped to his feet and fell flat on his face.

    Unfortunately, someone on a catwalk above heard them, and raised the alarm. The entire battlegroup came alive, 6000 men on the carrier, and thousands on the destroyers, cruisers and support ships were rousted from their beds and ran to their battle stations to report in as the ships maneuvered in unison to come about.

    Needless to say, the men were court martialed.

    I have always been a little leery of pranks, because they can go sideways. We had a guy sleepily drowsing in our shop one boring day at sea, his elbow resting on a table the side of his head in the palm. While the rest of us watched silently, his buddy crept over, pulled out his cigarette lighter, and proceeded to put it a few inches under the guys armpit to give him the equivalent of a “hotfoot” in his armpit. He meant no harm, and we all thought it would be funny, so we all watched, stifling our laughter.

    What the guy didn’t know was his buddy had a small hole worn through in the armpit of his flight deck jersey, and the flame went right up through the hole and lit his armpit hair on fire.

    The guy awoke with a bloodcurdling scream as the rancid smell of burning hair filled the air...the guy wasn’t seriously hurt, but...it definitely made me think long and hard about doing pranks.

    A while back I read an anecdote about a small boat of poachers went into a wildlife preserve (I think in Bangladesh) at night with no lights to avoid detection.

    It was a small tributary, and as they slowly proceeded in the dark, they heard a soft splash. When they turned on a spotlight, they saw a tiger dragging a guy up the riverbank by his head.

    Apparently, there were high banks on both sides of the stream, and the tiger had leaped over the boat, grabbed one of the poachers out of the boat by his head in mid-air, and landed on the other side.

    After watching that video, I don’t doubt the veracity of that story I heard for a single second. It looked like it grabbed that woman by her lower back with its teeth on each side of her spine and made off with her with seemingly no effort at all.

    "...creating new characters, instead of appropriating existing ones..."

    You probably know this already, but appropriating a current symbol and defacing, degrading,and eventually destroying what it originally was, is a standard leftist tactic.

    They could create their own, but...who would, in their right mind, be interested in it?

    Take the Rainbow, for example.

    It now stands uniquely for homosexuality, where its original meaning (besides being something beautiful to behold in nature) was God's covenant after The Great Flood to mankind.

    Look what it stands for now.

    Now, if the homosexual community had simply created their own "symbol", what on earth would that be? Most people would be revolted by it, most likely, or have no interest in it at all.

    But, because the left/homosexual community has appropriated the rainbow, it has lost all of its original meaning for the vast majority of the population. (If you don't believe me (and I say this rhetorically) try doing a man on the street interview with random passerby, and show them a rainbow flag and a picture of the stylized rainbow, and ask them what it stands for. It won't be God's Covenant, or a beautiful feature of nature after a rainstorm...)

    They do the same thing with the word "gay" which used to be a perfectly functional word to describe a wonderful mental state of being. Now, the word has been appropriated and can no longer be used in its original meaning at all. Sad.

    So yes, not only do they escape having to engage the creative process to produce their own creation, they get the double satisfaction of destroying it for the people to whom it might have meant something completely different.

    I am no longer a practicing Catholic, and even though I have more reason than many to denounce the Catholic church, I have refused to do so up to this point.

    However, with the comments coming out of the Vatican over the last few years, and this from the Diocese of Richmond: "...Catholics have a duty to determine their own worthiness “through an upright and informed conscience.”..." I can come to no other conclusion than it is no more a religious entity than the Democratic Party.

    Or put a different way, Catholicism practices religion the same way Democrats practice morality. See my tagline.

    This should come as no surprise to anyone who has had any contact with leftists at demonstrations.

    I have been to a fair number of demonstrations, and have noticed the stark difference in the way participants on both sides express themselves through both in-demonstration behavior, and the signs carried to express their point of view.

    I took the time to document it a couple of years ago as shown below. I took two pictures, one showing a large gathering of liberals, and one showing a large gathering of conservatives.

    Here is an example of what the liberal protesters carry when they want to make a point. This analysis was from the Antiwar protesters at The Gathering of Eagles on March 17, 2007. What you see in this picture is absolutely, 100% TYPICAL.

    Here is an example of what the conservative protesters carry when THEY want to make a point. This analysis was from the Taxpayer March on Washington on 9/12/2009. What you see in this picture is absolutely, 100% TYPICAL.

    Conservatives not only show wit and originality in the content of the materials they use to express themselves, but also spend time making them both readable and legible. They take pride in their handiwork, and they can do this because they have a deeper understanding of the issue at hand.

    Liberals often have mass printed signs that lack originality and wit in an attempt to ensure everyone has a sign (created by someone else) that says something that the "someone else" want them to express. When you see liberals carrying their own handmade signs, they often look like this, poorly lettered and shallow in content:

    I have seen this contrast over and over again. What I have concluded from this is that while liberals may have some form of conviction about a subject, it is because they want to believe something they have been told without thinking it through. Most of them have an "understanding" of an issue that is a foot wide and a fraction of an inch deep. They will doggedly stay within that framework regardless of facts and logic, and their expression of that viewpoint in their signs and banners illustrates a lack of depth, understanding and originality.

    Add into that a fundamental hatred of this country and what it stands for, and that completes the picture. (NOTE: It is important to remember they will deny a "hate" for this country. But it is true they hate what it stands for currently. When it resembles more closely their socialist/communist "utopia", they won't "hate" it anymore.)

    I find it hilarious that the former Ramparts is printing Daniel Greenfield. I give them survival props for that.

    And I don’t see this as a call that the Left is dead. The left will not die until a stake is driven through its heart, and long as the allure of socialism, nanny-statism/statism, and utopianism is alive, they will live. And those things aren’t going to die, because they are timeless. So anyone who proclaims the Left is dead is crazy.

    Also, I don’t see this as being primarily about Democratic unity. There is no doubt the Left is composed of ideologues and Useful Idiots (The Useful Idiots and the Idiots making up about 2/3 of the Left, in my calculus) who can band together when they need to, even if they say they won’t. They like to think they are ideologically pure, but they aren’t. They are only ideologues drinking the kool-aid of the day, which is/was Bernie Sanders. They are, I think different from many of the NeverTrumpers, who may or may not be more or less ideologically pure, but are more stubborn.

    In my opinion, this was more about what he alluded to in the last few paragraphs...the corruptness of the Leftist ideology, and at the end, it is just soggy signs and broken hearts. But they each get a vote, and most of them are going to vote ideology not a candidate.

    LOL, we need someone to post the “Your Tears are Delicious” graphic, though!
