"Fools"?? Friendly and pc as ever.

 

But seriously, the rules are so nebulous (as the Keiller case illustrates) that there really does need to be clarity.


Clarity is only needed for unimaginative drones who demonstrate inability to reason and figure out what the answer is - even though all the evidence is not necessarily present.

 

 


There was a great discussion on this on NPR today. Terry Gross..fresh air. Its on the net now.

So it begins.

Garrison Keiler's story - if it is true and it hasn't been challenged - illustrates how far afield this thing is going. 

 

Look at this picture and tell me (based on the current mindset) who is sexually assaulting who:

 Nobody is sexually assaulting or groping anybody - only pervert right wingers could fail to see Obama's hand behind her elbow - or do pervert RWNJs now consider touching an elbow a form of sexual assault?

 

Is rk9152 alleging she is lewdly and lasciviously groping Obama?

 

RWNJs can be so amusing when they are in earnest...

trump should be fired for the atrocities he has perpetrated on women, Moore shouldn't have a prayer. Today the House enacted a bill with regard to sexual behavior in the workplace. This is a training that large companies have mandated for years. 

 

No no one should care WHO it was who took advantage of women—if proven true, none have any place in government or in any professional position. 

With regard to this recent crop—including the scum in the Oval,  the evidence is clear.

 

For those foolish enough to ask “what proof?” I direct you to reality and credible news sites.

 

Gee, I miss having a real president!


at 61, I cant believe men my age and older NEED a sexual harassment class. COntrolling your base urges should be part of considering yourself a good leader. Lots of THOUGHTS pass thru my mind..but i dont ACT on them and i keep my mouth shut too. 

So it begins.

But who knows? Ugh!


Not at all certain.

 

However, if I were female, I definitiely would not let about half the men I've met in my lifetime within touching distance based upon the kinds of things I've heard tham say in male to male coversations...

 

Yeah - that makes me a traitor to my xy genes.

 

Can't say that I care. 

My wife says that part of me is better than average in her opinion... 

I approve of and am content with me the way I am.

No more is necessary.

 

 


ditto here. my wife also wonders at times why some women dont just slap the offender..like katy couric who said lauer continually pinched her. 

So it begins.

Heh.  It was a bit of a flippant comment and I only mentioned Fred Rogers because he is the LEAST likely person to ever do anything like we're discussing here.  Of course I never knew him personally but  every thing I've ever read about him (with no exceptions) paints the man as pure gold and the real deal.  I would expect the Pope to be accused of anything before MisterRogers (who was also an ordained minister).

 

But who knows.  He might not be as he seemed.  Anything is possible but I have never heard one whiff of a scandal about him.

While reading these comments I thought of how I was treated by the variety of men I worked with when first stepping into a "man's job".  Granted that was in the dark ages of the seventies.  The group that treated me with the most respect was not the Lawyers, Bankers, Actors, Dancers,  Artists, Politicians, Stagehands, Musicians, Laborers, etc.  It was the  Mafia guys with whom I negotiated Union contracts; every single one of them over 15 years behaved like gentlemen.

 

 

 

 
 

Hmmm.... MIMIOOOO's post has a very good point.

 

Many considered "upper class" are not necessarily so in all respects.

 

Consider trump - there are probably prisoners serving life sentences with better ethical standards than liddle donnie...

 

 


Yup ...... There are people in jail for having child pornography while Trump sits in the White House after admitting to and lusting about going into the dressing rooms of teenage girls to watch them undress!!!!

DUMP TRUMP AND DITCH MITCH TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!!!
