Not going to happen.

Gore's a blithering idiot but afaik he doesn't have any jihadist preacher connewctions in his closet.. smaller evil though 'global warming' is a huge make-believe hoax.

FK

Don't ever change, Allah S. It's because of people like you that I know I'm sane.

Gore received a middling grade in Geology at Harvard, which proves he wanted his grades straight. He is also politically nimble, because he obtained the Nobel Prize nonetheless, which is a Peace Prize, not a scientific prize. This proves he is popular with the industrializing third world, but certainly not here in the US. Since he is as obdurate as Hillary, he is not likely to change his direction until hell freezes over. So we should make him President of Mars, where his CO2 will not offend his sensibilities.

I think Monica is hoping for too much - a three way split a very Moniacal idea.

Allah Schmallah

Truther.. you're turning out to be a uniquely creative, funny and most of all - independent-thinkin guy.

I haven't had this many chuckles, guffaws and laughs in quite a while.

Keep up your good work!

I really think I had you pegged all wrong initially..

Thank God we have Republicans like Monica, Sean Hannity and Elisabeth Hasselhoff out there willing to ask the tough questions of our political candidates.

Here is the clip from Obama does "The View" that Monica mentioned earlier

We are asking the tough questions NOW so we can avoid a disaster like this. (Remember, Eliot Mess won by about 69% of the vote.)

Speaking of sniper fire, here is a funny clip about "our girl". (Obama girl is on there too.)

I'm listening to the Monica Crowley show right now.. She had me in stitches: Hopward Dean the Dr. Kevorkian of the Democrat Party. Hu-aaaahhhhh!!

And now she's got Hitlery under "sniper fire".

I'm beginning to think we may need to have McLame in the White House just so as to ensure that things don't get any worse.

Monica mentioned Shelby Steele on her show. Here are a bunch of articles by Shelby Steele.

How did we get to this point? Down to three candidates for the President of the United States of America, and the Yankees haven't had their first home game yet!

Truther had more point than he admitted when suggesting Gore for Mars President.

As scientists know---real ones, not goreacles on stipend---there is global warming on Mars, among other parts of the solar system.

But this raises a troubling question. Since the Democrats' noted Warmologist Al Gore will not debate global warming here---leaving it to the funded fellas to carry his melted ice for him---would he relent for Mars?

His PR machine, running with Google gelt, has got him a nice big following on Earth from the "global warming is man-made" crowd. Could he win an election a million miles away on the slogan, "It's here, and it's Martian-made"?

The USA harbors a significant population of woman haters. They are not just men. They include a large and noisy minority of women who hate their mothers, grandmothers and/or sisters, so they take it out on
Hillary Clinton, Patsy Ramsey and Heather Mills.
When she was falsely accused of murdering her child, Patsy Ramsey asserted herself.
Heather stood up to the most autocratic and chauvinistic Beatle.
Hillary has the audacity and effrontery to run for President.

Men like Don Imus, Dick Morris and Bill Maher, and women like Monica Crowley, Ann Coulter and laura Ingram can't stand women who possess that kind of inner strength. They feel it as a threat to their own brittle egos. Call it Post Traumatic Stress, based on a long-suffering journey to the barest minumim of respect.
"Yes, Johhnny," there is evil in the world, and it ain't Mrs. Hillary Clinton.

Why does the public like Laura Bush? I'll tell you why. Because she is unobtrusive and possesses an amiable veneer. Like McCain’s wife, she smiles and stays in her "rightful" (respectful), place.

That sexist slice of American "humanity", male and female, Republican, Independent and Democrat, are perfectly ready to elect a black male over a woman because they have more unresolved issues with women, than they have with the black race.
They have come to a tolerable resolution of the racial issue because the black man is first and foremost, a MAN.

M/M

Actually Jack, now that I am stuck with McCain, I am taking a hard look at Satan and I hope she stays in the race so that I can have a choice. In terms of personality, Obama is more likable, but Hill comes with Bill (I hope), and I'm impressed that 42 left office with A SURPLUS. If I end up hating all three of them by November, I hope there will be away for me to go to the polls and have my "none of the above" presidential vote counted, so McCain can see how many votes he lost.

I'm tired of liberals IMPOSING your values on us. Just because we don't like the same women doesn't mean we are sexist. Last year, people like you made us feel guilty when we wouldn't watch Katie Couric because we HATED the way she changed the evening news. It is my understanding that after Katie went back to journalism school and changed the format of the evening news, her ratings improved. If you want to know some of the legitimate reasons, why I don't like Satan, go read some of Maureen Dowd's columns.

Again, I'm tired of YOU telling me what I should like.

Don Imus: Don Imus has been HAPPILY MARRIED to a VERY STRONG woman since sometime in the 1990s. I LIKE his show because I am sick of being forced fed a diet of "political correctness". If you don't like Don Imus, don't watch him. There are plenty of other choices on television and radio for you to choose from.

Bill Maher: I don't watch Bill Maher but I DO like him, even though he is a liberal. I like Bill Maher because he is EXTREMELY intelligent and VERY funny. The last time I heard Bill Maher he was making fun of Larry Craig, a Republican, and I LOL'd at his joke.

Paul McCartney: I always thought of Paul as the "romantic" Beatle, who had a very successful long-term marriage with his late wife, Linda. He should have had a pre-nup.


Ann Coulter: I was neutral on Ann Coulter until I saw Chris Matthews set her up with a phone call from Elizabeth Edwards. I was impressed with the way that Ann handled herself.

Ann "stirs the pot" with her controversial opinions, but I started liking her with her endorsement of Duncan Hunter and her refusal to support John McCain. Ann is smart, strong and successful. Many men admire her because she is "tough enough" to fight her own battles and because they consider her to be "fearless".

Laura Ingram: Laura Ingraham, like Ann Coulter, has very impressive credentials. In fact, Laura clerked for Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. Rush and Sean turned me on to Laura through her book POWER TO THE PEOPLE. I was impressed with Laura because she discussed the importance of becoming involved in local elections and made me aware of the 10th Amendment. In addition, I have tremendous respect for Laura because, in her book, she discussed how she was treated for breast cancer at a personally challenging time in her life. Read her book Jack, and you will see how TOUGH she is.

Monica Crowley: I won respect for Monica when she refused to "throw Don Imus under the bus: last year. Through his radio show, Don Imus promoted the careers of a great deal of people at MSNBC and NBC. The man lost his job; he didn't have to be "tarred and feathered" by the very people whose careers and books he promoted on his show throughout the years. To this day, I REFUSE to watch MSNBC and NBC and I was a hardcore fan.

Monica mentioned yesterday on her radio show how difficult is is to discuss politics with your friends when they hold passionately different views from yours. Conservative talk radio and Monica's blog are a way for us to ESCAPE from the LIBERAL's "politically correct" world view that they impose on us through every institution and exchange opinions with fellow conservatives who feel that same way I do.

Jack, STOP TRYING to make us FEEL GUILTY for our opinions and taste. Thanks to Sean Hannity and conservative talk radio, it won't work anymore.

M/M

I saw Duncan Hunter and Tom Tancredo on the list of politicians who have given up their seats. I HOPE John McCain considers them as choices for Vice President.

Duncan Hunter, you may remember, is A TRUE CONSERVATIVE and a veteran, with a son who served in Afghanistan.

M/M

Concerning today's TGM, can anyone figure out what Nader's position is on immigration? I still think I may have to write in Patrick J. Buchanan in November. I thought Ron Paul didn't want to run as an independent. What is Eleanor's problem? Is she jealous of Pat because people actually READ his books and columns, and listen to him?

Jack Flynn

I have no intention or desire that you feel guilty, M/M. If you are feeling guilty, it is you who are feeling that feeling. Nobody can MAKE you feel that way.

What did you do? Steal a cherry when you were three?
Have you always kept your rightful place, done the right thing, been unobtrusive and obliging to the heavy duty males and females around you?

Looks like, as Hillary says, you are trying to "find your voice", but alas, your struggle to be nice and please others is still evident. Could you possibly have been "over-trained" M/M?

Or are you just a nice person, wearing a hat that doesn't quite fit?

M/M

Jack,

Aren't you trying to make us feel guilty if we don't like Hillary? If we don't like Hillary, it must because we are sexist. Why do you like Hillary? What makes her a better candidate than Obama, McCain or Nader?

FK

Obama = No experience. I'm not sure what he offers other than eloquence.

McCain = Too old. His time was 8 years ago and Bush robbed him. Even if he wins, he's probably a one-termer.

Hillary Clinton = Intelligence and experience, with a reputation as a hard worker.

Here is a campaign song to "pump up" our girl.

Monica, the Gore thing has legs ...only if you and your colleagues do your duty. Obama is the clear front runner. He remains so only because the biased and liberal press have not given him full scrutiny. Once they do and reveal his full dealings with Rezko--a man who is about to bring down yet anothe DEM Gov. --and also make more people aware of Obama's relationship with Ayers, its all over. HRC cannot win, why would America elect a proven liar.

The question I have is when will you and your colleagues on the McL group bring out the real story on Obama

Monica,

I just saw the "60 Minutes" episode to which you refer (which proves that we do, indeed, read what you write!), and heard a) that Gore has "fallen out of love" with politics; b) his coming global warming ad campaign pairs conservative and liberal partisans in the same screening to give the semblance of agreement on the source of the problem.

Unless Gore will have changed his viewed after listening to Sinatra's "The Second Time Around", the declaration of his unrequited romance with politics may come as welcome news to the Obama and Hillary camps.

With respect to the second point, we are told that Newt Gingrich and others of that stature will represent the right half of the advertisment duo. While respecting our planet is a 'noble' enterprise, it is arguable from scientific data that mankind is the sole custodian of every factor of causation.

It would be an interesting exercise to discover why the likes of Gingrich are sustaining Gore's unverified theories without countervailing analysis, and lending it a legitimacy it has not (yet) merited.

Best,

FK

Michael --

I've had great respect for your opinions so far, so I'm disappointed that you are in the minority of people who are resistant about the problem of global warming. Perhaps Gore will win you over sometime.

I watched Gore on "60 Minutes", too, and not because Monica Crowley said we should. It made me sad that he is not our president, especially after seeing Bush's dumb mug at the baseball season opener (I DVR'ed "60 Minutes" and watched it after). Bush is a better pitcher than a president. When Gore "lost", our country lost, too.

Fred,

I appreciate your comments, but please do not think I am against protecting the environment or our planet. Teddy Roosevelt is a hero of mine, for both his conservationism and his foreign policy (running counter to Bush's - walk loudly and carry a small stick). In fact the McCain Doctrine makes planet saving part of his foreign policy.

I am just not convinced that Gore's thesis is based on more than just pop science (but, as a trained scientist, willing to continue to examine the data).

"The limits of growth" philosophies date back to Malthus, and all made sense at the time. Yet economic forces, combined with man's ingenuity, have always prevailed. For example, one scenario may be that the price of fossil fuel becomes so unsustainable that alternative sources of energy, that are "non-consumptive", i.e., use do not change the chemistry of the energy source, deliver a more attractive benefit-to-cost (solar, wind, tidal power, geothermal). Or that nuclear, which is chemically regenerative, provides the answer (France's power is 70% nuclear).

My problem with Gore is the forced conclusion that we must curtail economic activity, either by throttling production or increasing prices by regulation or taxes. In contrast, economic freedom may just unveil the solution.

Cheers,

FK

OK. At least you keep an open mind.

Jack Flynn

No M/M. As I said above, I am NOT trying to make ANYONE feel guilty about ANYTHING. I can't help it if someone feels guilty about one thing or another and projects it on me. I am only responsible for what I say, not for what you hear.

Why do I like Hillary? "Let me count the ways."

First off, this is a bad time to send an ideologue or an old timer to the Whitehouse. We need an energetic and resourceful pragmatist like Hillary in there—one who can do the daily busy work of running the government without having his or her goals outrun his or her ability to achieve them. There is nothing wrong with Obama's ideas, (although I'm pretty sure you would disagree with that). It is his ability to implement them that is in question. Hillary has already forged working relationships with members of both parties in Congress. She wants change as much as Obama does and she has the stick-to-it-ive-ness and the willingness to work within the system to accomplish that change. In that sense, she is more moderate than Obama who has only been involved in a paucity of Congressional legislation and is virtually untested in the National arena.
I don't care if she voted for the war. She is most capable of getting us out of there with a minimum of chaos and most able and likely to get us out of there sooner, rather than later with as much dignity as can be mustered and with as little danger to our National Security as possible. She is a realist and sees the value of engaging Iraq's neighbors to get involved in creating a more stable Iraq. She knows that in spite of our sincerest efforts, the vast majority of Iraqis continue to see us as invaders and hate us too much to consistently allow us to help them maintain their democracy and rebuild their infrastructure. In five years we have been unable to provide them with clean water and sufficient electrical power.
Hillary is well aware that it is ultimately up to them, as it was up to us to throw off the yoke of Colonial domination. She is realistic enough to know that only the majority of moderate Muslims in the Middle East can change the attitudes goals and values of the insurgents and as long as we continue to die for them they will not take any any significant action.

Looking at it from a more generic angle, men have had the reins since this Country's inception and have screwed it up miserably. Almost all of our domestic problems and international difficulties today are the result of men's rule.
It is time to try a woman. I believe that a woman's touch is needed to heal the unjust ills and pains of our nation, particularly a woman like Hillary who understands that 45 Million Americans without health insurance is not only immoral but it is resulting in out of control, escalating health and drug costs and making even existing health care programs un-affordable for more of the middle class each day. She understands that the real threat to this country is the creeping erosion of our constitutional liberties and that most likely the next terrorist event will come from within, from people who look like our next door neighbor.
She knows that although we need a substantial, well equipped and well trained Military, the National Guard best serves us when they are close by, protecting our nuclear plants, waters and power grids, and are ready, able and equipped to take action during regional or National emergencies.

Yes, we need a change, and that change comes in the person and personage of Hillary Clinton.
She has the heart and mind for the job.
She will prove that it does takes a village.
And that village is ALL of America, not just the dining rooms and conference room where the rich hatch plan after plan to make themselves richer.

Yes, Hillary Clinton is applying for the job as President. She is asking us to hire her.
I hope the villagers will be wise enough to hire her to be the chief Elder of our Village.

She knows what the problems are and has the intelligence, know-how and commitment to solve them. When she says she will work for us, she means it. She is a problem solver—not a nation builder. She will concentrate her efforts here at home because she knows that if we continue to be like the house painter who paints everyone's home but neglects his own, we will never again regain the international respect necessary to work with our allies in freedom to unchain the world from war, terror and poverty.

That is why I like Hillary.

Michael :

There is no ingenuity that solves the upcoming transition/crisis. It has already started and is the real problem Gore should address, but it is a politically unlovable stance : The problem is the human population, the consumption of the earth egg, and the breakdown of the ecosystem caused by too many people. Twenty years ago people thought as you do - somehow, someway, there will be an answer. There really is no answer other than limiting population in regions where the ecosystem is degrading.

All the energy in the universe will not solve this. Biologically/chemically, the earth can only sustain so many people. More energy just hastens the rate at which the egg is used up. People are sitting with a bag over their heads pretending that uncontrolled human reproduction is not the actual problem. (These might be called begging impulse-reprod bagheads ;-)

Beyond any doubt we must make a transition, brutal or not, to a regressed, recycled economy, and maintain this until we find a way into space. That is the only possible escape. In the meantime, we must avoid overrunning the biological systems that sustain
us, or the human race might come to the finish line. There should be an atomic clock that indicates the time to biological armagedden.

Truther:

Thank you for your comments.

I am interested to know how you envision controling population growth or production. Is this the function of government? Admittedly, I am not that familiar with Gore's prescritions but now you have my curiosity piqued.

By the way, my ideas are not 20 years old, but 40 years old ... dating back to Milton Friedman and Ludwig von Mises :-) ... but so is the flat tax. Think of it like a fine wine ...

Cheers,

Mr. Flynn's cheerleading for Hillary Clinton shouldn't be dismissed as just a talking points Campaign Special.

He was on to something in plumping for this woman as "change." No, it's not just a desperate attempt to steal some Obama glow. The Rodham does indeed represent "change."

Remember back when the feminists would have a savaged or pitied the woman subjected to hubbie's (repeated)infidelities?

Hillary has changed all that. She demonstrates how they can accept a mate from the barnyard, shill for him in public, and call it womanly honor and dignity.

This is not real, undiluted, fundamental change?

FK

I wouldn't vote for Obama out of guilt. Right now, I'm trying to figure out why I would vote for him at all. So far I haven't (I voted for Clinton in my primary).

Allah Schmallah

Oh really? Why is it that it's always white guys like you trying to "out" other white people as "racists"?

The same white guys who remain silent when the racism is spewed from an "inconvenient" source, say the 'reverends' Wrong, Jack-sssonn and Al "Slim Shady" Sharpton.

You will be voting Obama in November since he will win the Nomination and there's no way you'd ever vote anything but "Democrat".

There was once a book called 'The closing of the American Mind".

I'd also like to suggest "The American Twilight"

Since you're such an avid reader you might want to pick one of them up.

Who knows, you might learn something.

Last thing liEberals want is is "inconvenient truths" challenging their way of thinking.

You'll be voting Obama if it kills your own grandmother.

I won't go for the cheap grandmother pun that Obama suggests..

Dgscol

Michael :

Perhaps McCain is okay on this. Conservation of energy, delays the problem. A balanced biologically recycled economy is the right direction to move, and finally, population control measures are necessary along with other assistance in places where the ecosystem is rapidly degenerating. Governments and cultural leaders must be made aware and compelled to act. It is not a panic situation, but more like a leaking boat. I think our economy should be as self-reliant as possible so we can aid other countries with problems while not being caught up in cross-linking dependencies, but I am not an economist. I have no idea of how independent we actually can be. I see people who seem to be concerned about man-induced global warming (MIGW), who are intentionally trying to create unnecessary economic dependencies for the US, Is this not troubling? MIGW per se is not really an actual concern.

Also - Never fear : Monica's monocled madness is buzzing. She is travelling and will ask the hard questions. She will get there first, and then you will know. She may be the unwitting savior of us all by means of her unorthodoxy. I wonder what Henry Alfred Kissinger thinks of global population problems?

Jack Flynn

Gringoman,
Yes, Hillary was betrayed and deceived by her husband and was emotionally torn to pieces about it, as any woman in the same situation would be.
Remember. They had a daughter who was at a vulnerable age at the time.
Of course Hillary was angry and no doubt she sulked and grieved for a period. But she didn't act out of that despair and anger and give up on her marriage, or the man she had loved for so many years.
No, like millions of good American women do every day, Hillary stuck with it, kept the fractured family together, and Bill was forced into much needed counseling.
The proof is in the pudding. The marriage was saved.
And today, not only do they have an enduring, loving relationship, but their daughter turned out to be a fine young woman who loves both of her parents.
That, Gringoman, demonstrates character, strength, resourcefulness, toughness and endurance—not weakness.
Apparently, Gringoman, you think that she would have been a better woman had she given up on Bill, stormed out of the Whitehouse, appeared on all the talk shows and reaped in sympathy as a defeated and scorned woman, or as a prideful, angry woman. What sort of "womanly honor and dignity" do you see in that?
Had she acted as you suggest, what kind of example would the First Lady of America have set for her daughter and women across America who found themselves in the same situation?
I realize, Gringoman, that you are far too cynical to understand much of this and perhaps your comment, doesn't deserve a response, but as Hillary did and does, and you don't do very often, at least, I tried.

Jack Flynn

Yep, M/M. Even with a woman President, it will still be a man's world for a while longer, won't it.

Allah S. --

My grandmothers are already dead, but thanks for the sentiment.

And, man, I'm not trying to "out" you as a racist. You "out" yourself.

At this point, you can just concede that you are a bigot. You admit that you prejudge Muslims -- you assume they support terrorism -- so you don't buy anything from a Muslim business. That's bigotry.

Allah Schmallah

Exceeeuuuse me..??! Have you actually READ the KKKoran?! ever heard of veres such as "I've been made victorious through terror"?

How do you explain their love for beheading others? The hanging of gays and the stoning of women - who can't prove they were raped - as "adulteresses"?

Explain these things to me, LI**E**BERAL!!!!!

The TRUTH is inconvenient indeed...

Know this: I didn't write the KKKoran!

Allah S. --

If I flip through the Bible and Torah, I'll find passages that most of us don't agree with about how to treat homosexuals and adulterers. I think the Bible, Torah, and Koran are all pretty ridiculous.

But you condemn ALL Muslims, even those living here. What does it matter in this discussion if the human rights records of Muslim countries is not as good as ours (though ours is not getting better; did you watch "60 Minutes" last night, for example?). YOU want to kick ALL Muslims out of this country. Many of them are HERE because they don't want to be in the countries they come from BECAUSE our human rights record is better.

Six million of MY people were slaughtered for their religion in many disgusting ways within the lifetime of only one generation before mine. Hanging. Burning. Gassing. That was done in one of those horrible Muslim countries! . . . Oh . . . wait a minute. . . . No . . . That was done in a supposedly Christian country! So much for the Muslims being more barbaric than Christians in modern times!

Allah Schmallah

Then I trust you believe in a strong State of Israel and their right to hang on to territories they gained in the wars of Agrression fought against them by their enemies.

And you should know that the in the moslem world the book "mein Kampf" is the second-best seller of all times, trailing only the KKKoran.

The "Protocols of the Elders of Zion" holds a very respectable position #3 on the list.

Cicvil violenece is out of control in all these countries by the way and I don;t think we should be importing people for whom this violence is so normal.

I don't want "honor" killings and forced circumcisions and all the other backward stuff to infiltrate into the West.

I don't want Italian frescoes damaged or destroyed because of some stone-age beliefs from the Middle East. To add insult to injury a lot of these people are actually housed clothed and fed at the expense of the Italian taxpayers.

Western Immigration practices and Laws should be decided more based on our needs and not the dictates of the UN or the demands of third-world dictators.

Sorry, but we will all have to get tougher.

Or face eventual annihilation.

Truther - in fact we are not an independent economy, and shouldn't be. No country can produce all the goods and services to sustain itself. That is why free trade is invitable; anything but free trade is the equivalent of taxation (there are exceptions and fine tuning, of course, in cases of dumping, consumer protection violations, national security, etc.) With respect to MIGW, the scientific data are ambiguous at best. There is a growing set of studies that show the earth may actually be cooling. Even if it were warming, the causation between man-made effluents and the trend is tenuous. On the other hand, pollution by itself is universally regarded as bad (except maybe in Caracas, Beijing, or Athens), so we ought to address that issue head on. However, we should very careful not to redo economic theory in order to achieve a single objective, but, I would argue, try to deploy free market economics to achieve a salutary societal goal. I am not saying Gore is wrong; I'm saying even Gore doesn't know if he is right.

Al - Turkey, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Mali, and Senegal are all democratic and Muslim. According to the Council on Foreign Relations, "Millions of the world's 1.4 billion Muslims live in democracies, ample proof that there is no inherent discord between the two ideas, most scholars say." Granted, human rights around the world may not meet our standards and certainly some of the practices in the Middle East are clearly abhorrent. I think that is equally a function of national tradition, however. Iran under the Shah, for example, was quite Western in many aspects.

Would you not agree we should not judge a major world religion by the atrocities of a few, just as we should not judge Catholicism by the atrocities of priests? (full disclosure: I am Catholic).

Jack you missed the whole point of this song, and your comment is SO "last century".

What the songwriter is saying is that men and women are different, and they see things differently. I'm sure Imus fans are LOLing at this line:

"Yeah with all of these men linin' up to get neutered It's hip now to be feminized"...

Jack, YOU need to be liberated. Turn off those other morning shows and turn on http://www.wabcradio.com/ tomorrow morning from 6 a.m. through 10 a.m. eastern time. The incredibly sexy Kinky Friedman will be a guest on the show tomorrow, and hopefully, the muy caliente El Bernardo del Bronx will be back.

Here are the lyrics:

"When you see a deer you see Bambi
And I see antlers up on the wall
When you see a lake you think picnics
And I see a large mouth up under that log
You're probably thinking that you're gonna change me
In some ways well maybe you might
Scrub me down, dress me up aww but no matter what
Remember, I'm still a guy

When you see a priceless French painting
I see a drunk, naked girl
You think that ridin' a wild bull sounds crazy
And I'd like to give it a whirl
Well love makes a man do some things he ain't proud of
And in a weak moment I might walk your sissy dog, hold your purse at the mall
But remember, I'm still a guy

And I'll pour out my heart
Hold your hand in the car
Write a love song that makes you cry
Then turn right around knock some jerk to the ground
'Cause he copped a feel as you walked by

I can hear you now talkin' to your friends
Saying, "Yeah girls he's come a long way"
From draggin' his knuckles and carryin' a club
[I'm Still A Guy lyrics on http://www.metrolyrics.com]

And buildin' a fire in a cave
But when you say a backrub means only a backrub
Then you swat my hand when I try
Well now, what can I say at the end of the day
Honey, I'm still a guy

And I'll pour out my heart
Hold your hand in the car
Write a love song that makes you cry
Then turn right around knock some jerk to the ground
'Cause he copped a feel as you walked by

These days there's dudes gettin' facials
Manicured, waxed and botoxed
With deep spray-on tans and creamy lotiony hands
You can't grip a tacklebox

Yeah with all of these men linin' up to get neutered
It's hip now to be feminized
I don't highlight my hair
I've still got a pair
Yeah honey, I'm still a guy

Oh my eyebrows ain't plucked
There's a gun in my truck
Oh thank God, I'm still a guy "

Like I said, M/M, "good voice"—stupid song.
The song is endemic to certain parts of the country where anachronistic behavior and thinking abound. It displays only superficial differences between male and female. It's a fun "cute" song. There's not much more one can say about it. Almost a shame to waste a good voice on it.

I say "Viva la differance" but I pay more attention to differences that are significant and compliment each other rather than differences contrived by misogynists who are non-plussed by a particular kind of woman who is more interested in a fine picnic than an alligator under a log. Why didn't he marry a gal who loves to hunt alligators? I'm sure there are still a few of them out there, don't you think?

I don't think women should be or act like men, or men should be or act like women, (unless they want to), although I think man, (as a species), could learn to be more sensitive to the nuance of emotion, and woman,(as a species), could learn to find a new and better name for one of their major sexual organs.

Yes, I believe that "man" and "woman", although both human, should be viewed as separate species. If they could see themselves that way, they would have a lot more to share with each other and wouldn't struggle and fight to change each other so much.

As far as the differences go, I don't deny them, but I trust more those stated by compatible lovers rather than by people whose relationships mix like oil and water.

I am interested in the phenomenon of projection that goes on between man and woman, which is responsible for much of the violence and misunderstanding between the two genders,(species).

And you say I need to be liberated?
Isn't that "cute".

By the way, do we have to wait for the Inaugural Ball to see Hillary in a dress?
How's that for a "last century" comment?

You have got to stop baiting me M/M. I am working on a book and can't afford to get side tracked every five minutes by recreational meanderings.

I've never heard that song, but those are some dumbass lyrics.

M/M

I think the lyrics are GREAT! Oh, look Brad Paisley will be a guest on "A Prairie Home Companion" on NPR this weekend.
