This Thread was never about helping anyone..............................the link provided by the Author is about something happening in Scotland

 

It's a Thread to once again attempt to create and reinforce a MEME already being sourced by Trump - the Trump Cult - Trump TV and the rest of the Republican Party - that we are all going to be seeing ad nauseum................................

 

That first there were Democrats and you know what that means

 

Then came the Liberals and you know what that means 

 

Then came the Progressives and you know what that means 

 

Now comes the Socialists and you know what that means 

 

They all either want what we have or they want Free Stuff

 

No One I know or associate with goes around asking non-elected....... non government Citizens - What Have You Done?

 

People who have more than a Ephemeral association with Empathy - have no reason to keep Score

 

Well, SOOSIE it appears Mick doesn't want TO talk about it.

 

Mick is talking about the deliberate disingenuity, bigotry and racism - closeted - denied - and blatant - of trump supporters...

@Soosie

 

Why is it Republicans always want their - Fellow Americans - to reach into our own pockets but aren't willing to do it themselves

 

The Economy has been booming since Trump took office - Stock Markets up for 116 Straight Months - Unemployment & Interest Historic Lows

 

This was the Time all Americans could have been asked to - Reach into their own pockets

 

Instead the Richest INDIVIDUALS in America got a 150 Billion Dollar a Year RAISE

 

The Biggest Corporations in America Already Earning Record Breaking Profits saw their Income Tax Rate go from 35% to 20% and Not One Previous Loophole was closed in Fact Trump Announced by Tweet this week he's going to reduce Capital Gains Taxes for the Richest Americans by another 20 Billion a year

 

All this while the Federal Minimum Wage hasn't increased in 10 years - it's still $7.25

 

1. According to the the 2010 US Census - The Poverty Level in Chicago is around 25%

 

NO RICH PEOPLE IN CHICAGO REACHING INTO THEIR POCKETS TO BUY INDIGENT WOMAN TAMPAX OR ANYTHING ELSE THEY NEED

 

Here is the Chicago Yacht Club - Downtown Chicago

2. According to the the 2010 US Census - The Poverty Level in San Diego is around 15%

 

NO RICH PEOPLE IN SAN DIEGO REACHING INTO THEIR POCKETS TO BUY INDIGENT WOMAN TAMPAX OR ANYTHING ELSE THEY NEED

 

Here is the San Diego Yacht Club in Downtown San Diego

Yeah we should all - Reach Into Our Own Pockets - how many Indigent woman a year could be taken care of for the price of just one of these Yachts

 

Spare me the Lecture about the Generosity of Rich People - just take a look at Trumps Charitable Giving - he a Billionaire gives his own Charity Foundation about $30,000 a year and he uses the money from all the Doantions to his Foundation to pay off Poltical Favors........................not to help Indigent Woman  

 

 Another indication of a pervasive class envy.

@Soosie- agreed  -  thus far I have been lucky.

 

Nothing attributable to anything but sheer luck - thanks mom and dad for raising me like you did - and for the genes...  

 

All luck.

I guess that for males is a very difficult thing to figure out that without US  they  would not exist, and many times I wonder what a wonderful world this would be.

But in a way they have served as sex object  to fulfill my function  to procreate.
After that, their usefulness has been created mostly by them.

That's true - even though it may be straying even further from the topic than I wandered.

That's one of those irrational patriarchal male superiority and male domination related kinds of things that many males feel (incorrectly) diminishes them. @Alferd.......Perhaps we did stray off topic, but thanks for this post. I have never thought any of the ageing process or the types of changes diminishes us in anyway. I see the changes in my body and many times just make light of them. I'm very thankful to have lived to this age and cherish my years. I think it elevates a man's status when he is able to accept the changes and not make it an ego thing.

It has never been a "female only" thing - it has always been a human thing.@alferd.......here is another "human subject".......male impotence. Why do you think it is such a taboo subject for men? If mentioned, some of them become angry and say it is about pride. I personally think some open discussion on the subject could be a good thing. Aging men don't seem to realize that a woman who loves them can and will understand this is part of the ageing process.

There are many issues that affect humans - vision - hearing - digestion - heart and lung function - issues with all skeletal joint articulations - neck - back - hip - shoulder - elbow - wrist - knee - etc etc - some of which can be treated with modern medicine - some that cannot.

 

Various groups and factions within society - some with rather peculiar and not particularly logically and rationally derived criteria have developed some highly unusual and quite bizarre standards for what they allege does and does not diminish one...

 

Did you notice? 

These days, more black women are graduating with college/university degrees than any other group. 

Significance? 

Some will say there's significance - some will say there's no significance - the fact is that no one can conclusively prove diddly squat.
