Ok folks. Let’s have a serious discussion on sexual harassment. The “assault” charges are now spreading through Hollywood and Washington DC faster than any brush fire I’ve ever seen. You’ve Apparrently got a slush fund that has paid out 17 million tax payer dollars for settlements over the last 20 years in Congress. . This crosses both party lines. At the same time I believe this is setting up a very dangerous scenario. How many married couples met Eachother at work? Where are Human beings supposed to find mates? Bars? Grocery Stores, Churches, online dating sites? Are we suppose to completely ignore those we work with 40 hours a week? Those we have built friendships with? Are we suppose to simply be robots at work and show no emotions? The actual definition of Sexual Harassment is “unwanted sexual advances”. Ok.. how about the wanted ones? Where is the dividing line? Is flirting in the work place a thing of the past? Like I said, I think it’s an interesting conversation
Every dime of those settlement dollars should be returned to the taxpayers.
In the future, when these filthy pig politicians are ready to pay off to keep people quiet, they should pay with their own money.
Men have been chasing women since the beginning of time. I understand there are lines not to be crossed - but the PC crowd does not. They will shame mans natural desire to be with a woman. How do you think attempting to change human nature will work out?
Have you ever cooked a Thanksgiving turkey yourself?
Sure! Lot's of times.
Will you be talking politics with family during the Thanksgiving holiday?
No. We'll be having fun instead.
Why does everyone warn people not to google yourself?
Maybe they're just warning you!
The alt right will probably one day work to get this image deemed offensive.
Nothing to be pissed about today, so ... you make shit up to be pissed about?
Santa.At what age did you stop believing and how did you find out?
Years ago I hired myself out as Santa for private parties. It was a great gig. Good money at a time of year when money was needed.
One evening my daughter, maybe six at the time walked in as I was getting dressed for my Santa gig. My heart was in my throat - I did not want to be the one that blew it for my little angel. She looked at me, wide eyed and confused, and she said,
"You're Santa? Oh Daddy, I promise I won't tell anyone! I love you!"
Life is 10% of what happens to me and 90% how I react to it .......Charles R Swindoll
I didn't mean to give you that impression. I think he is a smart man, but I get more from this quote than many of the others that I read. ;)
Got it. Thanks.
Sexual harassment/rape of women isnt funny
Nobody I just find thinking the rape of women funny unacceptable and as moderator you should too
Not a single person that has responded so far has said that they think rape is funny.
YOU claim to know people that do. You're bitching about the behavior of people here. Who? What behavior? EVERY person responding here has supported your premise that rape is not funny. WTF is the problem?
Deciding what's acceptable or not for me ain't gonna fly Metal. My guidance for you on this topic would be to not tell people what they should or shouldn't do. (Children the obvious exception.) Telling people what they should / shouldn't do implies that you have some control over them. You do not have control over me - do not presume that you do.
For the record I do NOT think rape is funny. I think the premise is preposterous. Further, I think the premise was born out of your aggressive nature and desire to put words that people did not say into their mouths. You did that very thing to me earlier in this thread. I commented on your wanting to ban people that think rape is funny and turned that into an assumption that I think rape is funny and OK.
Chill out Metal
And you think it's okay that people find rape of women funny? That's not a thought that's cruel and inhumane
How do you get there Metal? Did I say anything at all that might lead you to believe that I think rape is funny? Anything at all?
Is that the same thought process you used so that you know some members of this website who think women are "asking for it", and that they should be banned for thinking that.
Yes I'm an even tempered person always have been but this type of appalling behavior displayed here sickened me a lot such rampant disrespect for another person is cruel and sick and the people with the power to stop it do nothing obviously do they think it's funny too
Who are we hunting Metal?
True and I know some members of this website who think women are "asking for it" that's sad they should be banned for that
So, we want to ban people for what they think now?
Do you really think that's wise?
Most of his quotes are very religious, but I do agree with this one: “We cannot change our past... we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you... we are in charge of our Attitudes.”
Swindoll is a Christian Pastor. So, it's not surprising the things he says would be religious. [Being a Christian is not a bad thing Will.]
Do you know about net neutrality and the plans to repeal it?
And corporations don't?
You can choose not to deal with a business.
You can't choose shit with government - you're stuck.
I'm about to leave and go for the movies for the first time in the last fifteen years. I know, it's sort of weird, but we are about to hit three digits (100) as a sovereign country. I know, it's not much for those of you from the North America and I understand you don't understand the suffering we have been through, but... I'm choking here, trying to get the words even written. We... Are... ****... Finns. You do not **** with us.
Congrats on the 100 year anniversary!
They can be held accountable in elections, corporations can't
Understood, it's still a crap shoot. We can hold business accountable on a daily basis - don't have to wait for an election.
Holding government accountable for anything is a lesson in frustration. They take responsibility for nothing yet want to control everything.
Do you understand the definition of the weird and scary, in the same sentence? Exactly, the kind of weirdos, that you really don't want to know, because stupidity is contagious. There's this guy, Mike Hughes... Uhmm... He is one of those silly Flat Earth Society idiots. He is actually //going to launch a rocket to prove, that the Earth is flat.// I'm stunned. What?!
"I don't believe in science," said Hughes, whose main sponsor for the rocket is Research Flat Earth. "I know about aerodynamics and fluid dynamics and how things move through the area, about the certain size of rocket nozzles, and thrust. But that's not science, that's just a formula. There's no difference between science and science fiction."
---- Mad Mike Hughes
On the morning of the launch, Hughes will heat 70 gallons of water in a stainless steel tank and then blast off between 2 and 3 p.m. PT. He plans to go about a mile — reaching an altitude of about 1,800 feet — before pulling two parachutes. They're discouraging fans — safety issues — but it will be televised on his YouTube channel .
1,800 feet?! What does he hope to see / prove at that altitude? He could take an elevator to the top of the Sears Tower - for free!
The Internet would be put under the control of several companies who would ruin the Internet in an effort to squeeze every penny they can out of us and also use their power to destroy any more consumer friendly competition. The only way to get around it would be to start over with a new DIY internet, and I really do not want to have to take that step
If monopolies are bad, why should we trust the U.S. government, the largest, most powerful monopoly in the world? We’re talking about the same organization that spent an amount equal to Facebook’s first six years of operating costs to build a health care website that doesn't work, the same organization that can’t keep the country’s bridges from falling down, and the same organization that spends 320 times what private industry spends to send a rocket into space. Think of an industry that has major problems. Public schools? Health care? How about higher education, student loans, housing, banking, physical infrastructure, immigration, the space program, the military, the police, or the post office? What do all these industries and/or organizations have in common? They are all heavily regulated or controlled by the government. On the other hand we see that where deregulation has occurred, innovation has bloomed, such as with telephony services.
Should I care if emily gets raped?
Emily is not concerned about false accusations of rape.
That sentiment is shared by so many in various degrees. Men will naturally shy away from approaching women. Humans trying once again to alter human nature. What could possibly go wrong?
Less government is always good.
If companies start flocking us over, don't you think the well connected people will find better deals?
We've been told that rape and sexual assault/harassment is about CONTROL & POWER. I have known and read about some women, usually the same ones over and over, revealing their countless tales about being raped, sexually assaulted, and/or harassed many times. Yet other women in the work place have never been such. Why is that?
** teasing **? No wonder you identify with Trump.
There are such creatures Mona. And, they have nothing to do with my support for Trump.
Are you claiming such women do not exist??? Bud clearly stayed that the "souless jag wipes", i.e. the men who attack women, deserve "disdain and punishment", so he was not excusing such men.
Thanks for the back up Boz.
This is the man in the white house wow
Who gives a shit what Josh Snavely says?
How do you feel about a grown man walking into a dressing room with teenage and young adult women in various states of undress, because he can?
That depends. How does the man identify?
