Nope, never served with women, but I’ve worked with and fired plenty of the type that I was referring to, and I prefer working with men.
I’ll insult bobbleheaded men and women just the same-I lack patience for the vapid, regardless of gender. I wholeheartedly agree-there are exceptional women who serve, the same way there are exceptional men. They were not the ones to whom I was referring.
I doubt that the ones forced into service will be so pleasant…and draftees will run the gamut from the good ones to the not-good. *They* are the ones to whom I was referring. When someone can’t handle moving a box out of archives because it’s ‘dirty’, how will she handle ‘shark week’ under battlefield conditions?
I’m glad that the ones who CHOSE to serve made your experience more pleasant-the ones who do so willingly, I have tons of respect for. No question, no argument there. Non-issue.
I am a woman, by the way, straight, single, and successful in a heavily-male-dominated good-old-boys-club field *because* I work my ass off. I suspect you and I are standing on the same side of the fence-that the media and the public need to quit hamstringing the military and allow them to do their job-but you misunderstood me to be insulting women in general-not the case.
Sidenote: I’m certain the women you work with would appreciate your defense of them!

Great. So we’ll let the decisions be made the ‘But it’s not fa-ir’ crowd, as opposed to the ones actually dealing with the consequences, and endanger MORE American lives as a result.
When some pretty little bobblehead who’s spent her entire life studying the Kardashians gets blown in half because she was drafted against her will, the media will have a heyday and we’ll never hear the end of it.
And if you think that female draftees won’t be getting knocked up to avoid the draft, you’re insane. Genuinely unwanted babies, conceived only to serve a purpose? That’ll end well for the little one.
You obviously have never served with woman. They're just like men in regards to some try harder and do more then lazy men. While others do not. Not all woman are without honor and integrity. Do not insult them and do not think women are idiots. They can be intelligent, not all women like the Kardashians. If a woman gets blown up as you say maybe the media will finally untie the hands of the military. All this from a guy who had to deal with the consequence of women in the military. They actually made it rather more pleasant.
Haha well I definetly can’t argue with you that alot of women forced to serve would not do so well I also think that sadly applies to most men too. Keep up the good work in your field and teach those good old boys a lesson :)

That’s a great idea, aside from the fact that the world market is no longer a free market, and you cannot reasonably expect American farmers to compete on a world stage with subsidized countries, especially when many of those countries were our customers at one point.
Ag economics is a tangled mess and I don’t know how to fix the situation. You can’t blame the farmers though, Uncle Sam is the problem.
I would agree that Uncle Sam is the problem, but I think it's fair to say that farmers need their subsidies in the same way that inner city poor need their welfare. Either way it's people scrambling for their government free stuff, and voting for whoever promises them that free stuff.
On the other hand, at least the farmers are producing something other than babies.
Have they grown too addicted to their subsidies to innovate and cut costs, just as those on welfare lose incentive to work their way up and out of poverty?
BALTHAZOR and ROCK, "Ag economics is a tangled mess and I don’t know how to fix the situation"
"On the other hand, at least the farmers are producing something other than babies."
Both of you are on to it. Ag subsidies and welfare are linked in a sick cycle. Welfare kids are fed through ag subsidies i.e. food stamps and more kids on welfare mean more ag subsidies.

I’m continually amazed and disappointed by the people who don’t understand that hot air out of his mouth is the same as the hot air out of the current windbag-in-chief….hopey-changey-smarmy ******** with no substance, and there are people buying it wholesale because this time, the mouthpiece is on the R ticket.
Do you really not understand that the big business buffoon has a bought list as long as the Clintons? I wouldn’t be surprised if he had a similar body count, frankly.

Easy now…the poor horse can’t help who his owner is…no point taking it out on the poor beast!

The last acceptable bigotry is anti-catholicism. Even christians who would condemn those who speak again non-christian religions have no problem mocking Catholics.

A neuroscience phD doesn’t think vaccines are safe, and you’re critical because you know better.
I certainly don’t know better; I trust in the work done by those who actually do. Of which, Bialik is not one of them.
I’m critical because she doesn’t study vaccines, disagrees with all published studies on them, and has the star power to convince less educated people to take the risk of not vaccinating their kids.
So, why are you an anti-vaxxer?
Agreed 100%. Couldn't say it better

Makes for a slight twist on the old joke about “how do you make a million dollars farming? Start with two million”

Jeff needs a good catechism class and a stiff shot of proper spiritual direction. Where’s Padre Pio when we need him? (I say we because frankly, I could use the same!)

Your ignorance is laughable.
A real, genuine argument is too much to ask? I mean, really. First the ‘only one way and that’s through Jesus’ (to Whom do you suppose the Blessed Mother intercedes? Joe the Plumber? Her Son. (I certainly hope you remember that you are forbidden to pray for anyone, nor may you ask for their prayers, lest you behave hypocritically.)
Further, the Church Fathers, the apostles, and the earliest writings of the Church, the historical record of Christianity, shows just how very wrong you are.
No doubt your esteemed pastor learned that Osiris bit at seminary, and you parrot it back at every opportunity like a trained monkey, regardless of the logic of the matter. I suppose Christ fell from Heaven, somewhat like the KJV?
You couldn’t accurately elaborate on one teaching of the Church, and yet you feel secure mocking, judging, and denigrating.
And they mock Catholics for not thinking for themselves… Lol.
'First the 'only one way and that’s through Jesus'
John 14:6 Jesus answered, 'I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.'
1 Timothy 2:5 'For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.'
'You are forbidden to pray for anyone, nor may you ask for their prayers'
The living are to pray for the living...not to or for the dead...
"Afflictions to Idolaters"
Isaiah 8:19 'When someone tells you to consult mediums and spiritists, who whisper and mutter, should not a people inquire of their God? Why consult the dead on behalf of the living?'
@theg So your interpretation is infallible? Why can't a protestant answer that one simple question? Any takers? I have a pretty good guess as to why not.
@Gita -- is yours?

Amen Dudley. We’ve done that on several occasions, should do it again. We’ll be a month behind, but we’ll stand with you.

If the morning after pill prevents implantation of a fertilized egg, it absolutely causes abortion. Abortion is the death of unborn offspring, be it human, bovine, equine, intentional, accidental (though accidental/unintentional has been termed differently in recent years to differentiate) or anything else. A fertilized egg has spontaneous growth and requires only the nutrition and oxygen provided by the placenta. Its blood supply, etc. develops separately from the mother.
It is absolutely abortifacient. Any argument to the contrary is in spite of the facts.

I’m in a similar situation, RO issued yesterday, and I don’t leave the house without my ‘noisy cricket’ on my person. How does it happen? ‘Men’ lie. Not that women don’t, but women rarely stalk/threaten/kill their ex boyfriends. It starts great, grand, and wonderful, (in my case, I knew him from small town high school, was a clean cut, hardworking kid) and about the time you let your guard down, **** gets real and you’re in hiding,wondering when, where, how, and at what price, you’ll ‘pay’ for ‘this’. Not all scumbags have rap sheets.
Most men rarely stalk/threaten/kill their ex-girlfriends, sociopaths and control freaks do regardless of gender. Stay safe and definitely keep that hog leg on your person and accessible. Your in my Prayers for peace and safety.
Rockapine- I am praying for your safety and Gods mighty protection over you.

Seriously!? Yes, your body makes milk every couple hours-provided it’s removed on a regular basis. When it’s not removed, production slows. Some are very sensitive to interruption and every drop is precious.
It’s one thing to BE that incredibly ignorant about basic anatomical function, but to advertise it to the world is an entirely new level of ‘stoopid’.

Silly IP. Christians don’t get to claim religious persecution.
Haven’t you been paying attention?

Now, in the the spirit of defending the defenseless, Simmental are good cows. Crossed with a red angus, you’ll get one of the best beef steers you can get your mitts on.
Please don’t besmirch their reputation with a comparison to the Hilldebeast!

You’ve never been close to a woman whose husband had a porn addiction, obviously.
And you've never been married to a woman that refuses to put out regularly, but still expects you to stay faithful...this cuts both ways.
Luckily, my wife still puts out at least 5 times a week, so my browser history is clear...if that ever changes, though, I make no promises
You're both wrong she shouldn't refuse to put out but you shouldn't turn to porn either
Please explain porn addiction because my copy of the latest DSM doesn't have any references to it.

Bull. I would use a stronger term but no doubt the asterisks would negate it anyway.
It’s prejudice. Plain and simple. Unless you are really going to argue that only whites are capable of prejudice?
Reverse prejudice is favoritism.
