The downside of being a "progressive" is you end up beliveing their propaganda. This tends to keep the SSRI manufacturers and suicide hotlines in business.

Divorce is insanely stressful, and if you lost a fiancee after that, that's quite enough to push you into full-tilt clinical depression. Trying to find companionship (after losing partner[s]) in social circles filled with people looking for (or trying to avoid) their first lifepartner will certainy reenforce the feeling of being old before your time.

Listening to shortwave broadcast isn't the most uplifting thing on the planet either...speaking of propaganda. Have you considered an amateur radio licence? Not that it's really a good way to meet chicks, but at least you could use the HF bands without every third station being HCJB. :-)

I know...I'm a "bad person" . . . If only I could lighten up and quit being so serious all the time.

serious or kidding, it's still a dick thread.

people don't want to have to defend themselves. even if you were old pals and just joking......which maggie's presence on the list refutes..... it would be dickish.

besides......you forgot to name yourself on the list......to observe them, you must have been doing the same thing, but had less to offer, neh?

It would if I hadn't put it in ironic, mocking quotes.

The Bolsheviks weren't the majority party either. Until they got control, anyway...

Kind of like the ironic quotes I put in the thread title? :::lightbulb:::

In the commerce of jest, nothing bankrupts quicker than a clarification of the obvious.

Other than aspiring to being witty and only getting halfway there.

Progressive?

I don't think the quotation marks leant any sense of irony. They seemed to me to cast the word (and those who apply it to themselves) in a condescending light. This is made all the more obvious by quoting my mention of the "stolen election" and then saying that progressives "...end up beliveing their propaganda." If you were really being ironic, I missed it and I apologize.

Theorists of propaganda will have no bigger font of material from which to study their topic than the rhetoric that has come from the present administration. Up is down, black is white, and turned corners bring you back to where you began. It is appropriate here to quote one of the better theorists of propaganda:

"If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State."J.G.

Ironic indeed.

The irony being that I don't agree that "progressives" want to move in a direction that is in fact progress.

Thus your Goebbels quote is appropos.

Is that, like, after childbirth, you tell the doctor "put a few extra stitches in there" ???

Vaginal Rejuvination

I first saw the term in one of those "alternative" weeklies here in Hotlanta. Next to L.A., Our city has more plastic surgery outfits than I've ever seen. Vaginal Rejuvination does indeed tighten the vagina; in this sense it seems geared toward pleasing the male partner more than the female, though clitoral stimulation may be enhanced; I just don't know.
