Re: What a Stalin Quote About Rigging Elections Reveals About the 2020 Election

I read this forum because I am interested in wearing skirts as a guy and hearing about others who do the same, why can't we just leave American politics OUT. Unfortunately, the US is a deeply and sharply divided nation because that's in the interests of the controlling class. A nation united is a d...

I'll deal with this. Just don't expect it to be showy. That's not how I roll.

Re: Sick and Tired

Dammit. This is a fantastic example of what happens when Holy Wars start up -- civility is the first victim. Broadly, I'm with Kingfish on this one, that it's useful for viewpoints to be heard, no matter how repugnant we may find them. What we don't need is for folks to throw hissy-fits when somethi...

Where's the collusion? It can't be inferred from the article.
To quote He Himself on the matter, "No collusion!"

See my comments on the dynamics of the 2016 election for the background.

Re: Shout out to Boston 1030 AM

As a side, I wonder if any other members here are licensed radio amateurs? I probably should have been one but never went for a license, at the time because I never could accurately code/decode Morse -- and that was a requirement then. Hilariously, I went on later in life to devise -- and propose t...

Re: What a Stalin Quote About Rigging Elections Reveals About the 2020 Election

It's worth recalling precisely how bad the cast of candidates was in 2016. The Republicans couldn't come up with an acceptable candidate, and the Democrats insisted on running one that many Party members detested. Both major party candidates showed their personalities and proclivities during the mai...

Re: Womens underwear

Enough, guys. If it's above the hemline and not intended to be in view or alter the external shape of the skirt it's "unmentionable". Seriously, there's a reason for this. I watched as the old USENET (Remember that?) forum alt.fashion almost got taken over by discussion of "pnaties" -- and it was a ...

Re: What a Stalin Quote About Rigging Elections Reveals About the 2020 Election

I started feeling a little bit better about things somewhere around 13:00 Eastern after enough time had elapsed that it was clear that birds hadn't flown. I suspect that if Little Donnie had tried a launch that the military would have ignored him, but one never knows. With it now slightly after 14:0...

Re: What a Stalin Quote About Rigging Elections Reveals About the 2020 Election

So Trump is thinking of forming his own Patriot Party. Republicans are now in a tight spot. That's actually the worst thing he could do, and further evidence that he either a) has been working for the democrats this whole time or b) underscores his extreme narcissism. I think the answer here is "b"...

Re: Shout out to Boston 1030 AM

Sometimes after sundown when the ionosphere is high in the sky, I like to scan the AM band and see what comes in around the nation... Today, 1030 AM which I later learned had a call sign "WBZ New England (Boston MA) Shout out to Carl! Ha! WBZ transmits from Hull, MA (just off Nantasket Beach) which...

Re: For those who were adults during 1968

For informational purposes, you might not only look at that the cost of living was in 1968 but also what the tax structure was like. It was nothing like what we have today. It was also a structure that allowed the nation to prosper as no other nation had before, and it was subsequently torn down. St...

Re: As nature intended or a smooth operator?

I shave 'em as well, but that's because I can't grow a good pelt there and they look like the moths have been at me.

Incidentally, I started shaving the things well before I started wearing skirts, so there wasn't any connection. I merely hated the way they looked.

Re: Womens underwear

I've been to ballet performances where the male dancers wear dance tights that show a male profile. This is an artistic performance and not normal street wear. However people do not seem offended by it. Try it on Main Street and see what sort of response you get. The stage is one thing; real life i...

Re: I can imagine Marine Dress blues for men with a skirt,

Those are definitely some compelling looks. In a way, I'm surprised that the forms are still in use; however, militaries tend to be more traditional than most civil settings -- which would, sadly, work against a male donning a skirted uniform as it would likely break any number of rules, restriction...

Re: Womens underwear

In such case, you'd likely need a "cheerleaders figure" which is something most of us probably lost at best, twenty years ago, and you'd probably want to practice "tucking" which a) doesn't sound comfortable AT ALL, and b) most definitely is NOT what this site is about. Also to Brad's point, both a...
