Relationship Post II: I'm not paying for dinner - 03/23/04 12:48 AM

My second relationship post, don't read if it offends or you take it too seriously like some people with the last one.<br><br>A few weeks ago a girl in a messed-up relationship (they've been together for over a year, but they don't call themselves boyfriend/girlfriend for who knows what reasons, not normal situation by any standards) was trying to lecture me on relationships. She tried playing cupid, asking me to ask out a mutual friend of ours, and buy the girl dinner. I cringed. I told the girl, I don't mind buying a woman dinner, as long as the 19th amendment is repealed (I believe this is the amendment that allows women the right to vote, I'm not sure).<br><br>My point is, in our modern society, I view a woman as an equal, and it is a turn off that I would have to pay for dinner, movies, and basically everything. I don't mind covering for a friend, but my friends don't expect me to shell for them every time, and they cover me also. A woman that can't manage her own finances, and depends on a "knight in shinning armor" is no-woman for me. She called me a nut-case, making it look like I'm some sorta weirdo for this view since that's what she expects from a man. I immediatly pointed out a mutual friend of ours with the same views when it comes to dating, and she called him a nutcase also (by the way, he's a Republican also, concidience ?). <br><br>Oh well, I said that my friend and I believe in a fair-and-balanced relationship, not being "whipped" (I didn't actually use the term whipped). What I didn't say, but observed is that my Republican friend's fiancee might have him whipped by say 60/40, but that's okay, since all relationships will have the female more in control. In their relationship, they discuss which movies to see, what things to do, never put each other down (atleast in public) and share costs of movies, dinner, etc. The girl who called me a wacko, she controls her guy 90/10. Her man has to see the most feminine movies, or else, and she won't come and see any of his movies (she personally made him watch one of the girliest movies, while a bunch of us where out, the guys saw Pool Hall Junkies). He has to nurture her everyday while she makes fun of him in public, and when she is sick, he has to be with her the entire time, giving her full attention. She constantly talks about "hot" guys, while if he says something about a girl...<br><br>I once said to him, the GOP friend, and a fourth guy that all guys are whipped in the end. Ironically, the guy who was whipped the most, him, was the only one who disagreed ;-).<br><br> Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country .

a relationship is not about who pays what. if you are thinking about how much money you're spending on a girl, than that relationship is not worth keeping. i always payed for my girlfriends and i never ever thought about sharing. some girls insisted to share, i didn't mind. it's not important who pays! i also pay for my friends and next time they pay for me. it's not an issue. it shouldn't be for you either. a relationship should be much more than who pays for whom. i feel sorry for you.<br><br>as for movies, if your friends have problems over choosing what movie to see, than all i can say is that your friends are morons. the girl you were talking about is right.<br><br>

I knew I was right about putting a disclaimer about taking this thread too seriously, unfortunately, I knew I was right that there was no point also .<br><br>You believe in your type of relationship, I believe in mine. There are girls who will happily follow your way, and girls who will happily follow mine. Choice and diversity are great things. It is really immature of you to say "I feel sorry for you." In many ways, I should feel sorry for you to respond so harshly to an innocent post.<br><br>It isn't about the money for people that see a relationship like me, its about responsibility. Shared responsibility, and my ex even though coming from a different financial background than me, realized this, rarely letting me pay for her. As for my friends, I SPECIFICALLY said I shell for them, and they cover me. Please read the entire post next time.<br><br>Also concerning my friends, I didn't know some of the people who have/are going to UCLA are morons (low on emotional intelligence, relationship backbone,. maybe, morons, definately no). I specifically mentioned one guy, and his reasons for going to some movies, he is whipped! I guess your part of town doesn't have whipped men. <br><br>Sheesh, man, that was very impolite post iraszl. I welcome posts that disagree with my original thesis, and people who disagree with me passionately, let's just try to keep the civil tone of the original post.<br><br> Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country .

sorry if it was too harsh, but i think you got the point and that what matters. <br><br>i don't think i'm immature to feel sorry for you. you wanted to know what people think about this issue and i expressed my opinion and feelings. if that's too much for you, you should've put a disclaimer: please only post rational and emotionless posts. that would probably work for you.<br><br>if you think that only rational messages are exceptable in an argument, why did you evaluate my message from a personal point of view? ooops, that's a rhetorical mistake.<br><br>i think you like arguing. you post controversial issues, so that you can defend your side in front of an audience. it's a great sport, in the ancient Greek times they had championships.<br><br>

I missed the first one..so don't know what went on there.<br><br>but here is my take with this one:<br>If you aren't serious, then why post this? Is that not something you believe in or are you just posting something to stir up things? <br><br>As for the story you posted, I just shake my head and think that you are out there. I don't have time to make a full response, yet. I have to get to work. But let me just ask....why the reference to "GOP", "Republican" etc in your post? WHO CARES?? Again, I'm a republican, but do you see me mentioning it other than in response to YOUR posts?? <br><br>How old are you? And how many dates have you been on? Something tells me that you are young (mid-20's and younger, not that there's anything wrong with that!) and that you haven't dated much. Be a man. Buy a girl a dinner. Stop with all this "if you repeal the 19th amendment" and "I want my women barefoot and pregnant in the kitchen if I have to pay" attitude.<br><br>But that's just my take on it.<br><br>

Before you all go nuts on me, realized the post used exagerations to make a point, that the burdens of a relationship should be shared. Also, the events described were much less blatant in real life, and probably seem harsher on the internet. Please reread how girl #1 treats her "boyfriend" compared to the second couple.<br><br>Also, I'm not going to say "lady, pay for your own bill" to a girl. The point of the post is that I don't believe in 90/10 relationships like the first guy, but believe in 60/40 relationships like the GOP friend. Why did I use the term Republican/GOP? Partially as self-humor of Republican cheapness, and more importantly to make the story easy to follow, so you can distinct the guy in the bad relationship with the second friend. To be honest, both men are Republican, and their political party although irrelevant, it made the story much easier to follow than just saying "this guy, this other guy." <br><br>The 19th amendment comment was a perfectly timed joke, picked it up from the GOP friend, although he used it in a different context. The "barefoot and pregnant" comment you make about me is contrary to my entire post, that supports women empowerement, instead of Operahfication.<br><br>I am attracted to emotionally mature women, who are independent minded. They are feminine, but its a non-Dr. Phil side of feminity that is at the same time beautiful and strong. You have your own tastes, don't attack me for mine ;-).<br><br> Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country . <br><br>PS:<br>You make it seem like I force you to say your a Republican in your replies to my posts. <br><br>PPS:<br>Age: "mid 20s" <br>Experience: I'm not the GQ-man, but I've had success with beautiful women, and failure with average looking ones. Beautiful women were always accidental successes, me having a "whatever" attitude towards them initially, which led to mutual interest. With average looking girls too much attention and giveaway early on finished thigns before they could catch on. My last girlfriend was literally a model, atleast when she was still in her teens, but she still looked like one during the relationship. I don't like "bragging" so just assume me a nerd. Rather be assumed a nerd, then appear a bragger. Anyways... through these experiences and the observations of other relationships combined with a touch of economics and marketing, I came up with my "theory" on how to deal with beautiful women, which was the thesis of my last relationship post.

Early on, when my wife and I were dating, she started paying for every other date and I never asked her to do it. She just realized I wasn't making a load of money and it wasn't fair to expect me to ante up every time. Hmmmmm, she's a Republican too. Hmmmmm.<br><br>

"if you are thinking about how much money you're spending on a girl, than that relationship is not worth keeping"<br>Sorry, but I have to agree with iraszl on this statement. I'm not saying that you can't have the 60/40 relationship you want, but if all you start out thinking is about money...well it probably won't get you anywhere. Relax and have fun! And I didn't read anything about love. Don't you want to find someone that you love? My feelings are you've never been in love. When that happens my friend, money is no object!!!<br><br>

Well, I won't jump on you. But for a first date, if you want to make the effort to meet her and get to know her, then pay. If the relationship goes somewhere, then she can pitch in. If at dinner, you like her and she insist on paying half, just say to her, "hey, you can pay next time when you take me out."<br><br>

Re: Relationship Post II: I'm not paying for dinner - 03/23/04 07:18 AM

I have a question for you. If you went on a date and the guy told you that you'd have to pay for your half of the meal, would you ever go out with him again? I'm guessing most women would say no. <br><br>Women 'expect' guys to foot the bill, while they do nothing but take. <br><br>

Oh man, those whippings must really hurt.<br><br>A "woman give you happiness with their inner and outer beauty, they give you self confidence and inspiration, they give you hope and a reason to live."

Dude, next you're going to tell me you think mini vans are cool. <br><br>Let me tell you about a mans role. Take notes, maybe you'll learn something. A man is gentle, nurturing, supportive, open minded, he is the womans shield when the wolves are at the door. He's the listener without judging, the equal, though often physicaly stronger, he should never seek to dominate the woman, but should lift her to his level, or climb to meet hers. <br><br>The man brings as much to the table as the woman. He shouldn't have to bring his credit card too.<br><br>

<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>Beautiful women were always accidental successes, me having a "whatever" attitude towards them initially, which led to mutual interest.<p><hr></blockquote><p>this is interesting and there is a reason behind it. women are looking for the alpha male and when you were brave enough to approach the beautiful woman and acted as you don't care, you actually behaved like an alpha male. the alpha can get any woman and can afford not to stress about trying to impress. being the alpha means different things in different societies and age. an alpha teenager can be a muscular football player, who can afford a cool car and can get the best pot. but a geek who can hack the FBI computers can also be an alpha in an other society. even a bold fat banker can be an alpha male. the common of all these alphas is that they are winners and they have the respect of people. if you're an alpha in the eye of your woman, you got her attention.<br><br>however this will only work for the first time. when a woman gets interested in you, she is looking for a father of their babies and not just a alpha to mate. so at the second stage you have to be able to prove your loved one that you want and can care about her and the babies.<br><br>this is a very instinctive approach to the core of the issue and these basic rules manifest themselves in hundreds of ways. besides, every person goes through different stages in their lives, sometimes they just experiment or have fun, so these basic rules can change significantly. for example a 17 year old is mostly learning what a relationship is all about and she might act irrationally, just to see the limits, but it's all working towards the main goal of getting the alpha and having him care for her and the next generation.<br><br>so, if you like a woman, than go up to her be the alpha and than be a gentleman.<br><br>

Conversation, company, hopefully a good time that may lead to a second date. I mean why else ask a girl out, unless your just after one thing and then you should pay for everything! If a guy would just talk to me and say "hey listen I really like you but I just don't have the money to pay for everything." Things would go a lot smoother than just saying, you pay for your half. <br><br>

The plates are cleared away. There's a lag in the conversation. Candle light paints soft shadows and stars wink in her eyes. He fidgets with a couple of crumbs on the table cloth not knowing what to say. So she starts.<br>"That was really good."<br>"You thought so? Cool because, you know, I wasn't sure if you'd like it."<br>"No, no. It was very good. I didn't even know this place was here. I'm glad we came here."<br>"I'm glad you said yes when I asked you out."<br> There's a subtle pause and she smiles gently.<br>"I'm glad you asked me. I think I'd like to do this more often... with you."<br>"Really? I'd like that too."<br> They grin at each other and the you can almost see the tiny blue and white sparks light up between them. He leans forward and she thinks this will be their first kiss. Instead, he whispers in her ear.<br>"Can you help with the check? I'm kind of tapped out."<br> He never did get the food stains out of his favoriate shirt.<br><br>

Re: Relationship Post II: I'm not paying for dinner - 03/23/04 10:57 AM

Here is my view:<br><br>- In a "Dating relationship" whoever is on the top in the bedroom should pay fo the dinner. (I have always paid for all dinners for all the girls I ever took out on a "date") A girl is like a flower you went and picked so you should at least put her in water and light before taking a closer smell.<br><br>- In a "Loving relationship" money should be put together in a joint account and noone should care about how much the other person makes. Money comes and goes and I have seen it do so many many times. Love is more powerful than anything in this world. It can move mountains and make the sun come up on the sky every morning. There is no price you can put on love nor should money ever come in between 2 loving people.<br><br>- Also, humans still abey by the animal laws no matter how smart. The male wants to stick it in as fast as possible while the female wants a male that could provide for the family in the future. It is natural instinct and almost impossible to control. - Unless it is love at first sight....<br><br>- And all these ideas are coming from a guy (me) who takes out a girl on a first date in a bus while going for a free walk on the side of the river in a nice park. I tend to go for the loving ones more than the slutty ones and this technique is just natural selection! <br><br>_________________________________________<br>http://www.geocities.com/djstefan/bush.gif

Yeah, I remember what it was like to be like you. Not knowing the reality of the world.<br><br>Love is like building a bridge with a hammer and no nails. It doesn't matter if you love someone enough to move mountains. If they don't love you back, you're screwed. Is it the most powerful? No. Let me say that again. Capital N capital O. NO. It's money. The largest percent of failed marriages is about money.<br><br>And that whole animal thing? If that we're true, we'd be clubbing our women and dragging them around by the hair. We are not animals, we are human beings. Animals pretending to be human beings are called rapists.<br><br>You can treat a woman like a queen, but if you can't bring the jewels to go with it, she'll be gone so fast, they'll be friction burns in the carpet. <br><br>Women complain they don't want to be treated like objects.

You've got lots to learn... and I see now that you've got quite a lot about women to learn too. I can pick up the phone and have a list long of girls I could bring home tonight. Also, in a week I could have at least 3 girls that would marry me. <br><br>In this domain I know pretty well what I'm talking about. <br><br>On your first date, show up with a rose at her door, take her out on the bus where you can talk and look at each-other, then go to a park where the beauty of nature will get her hormones jumping to the sky and give you the possibility of putting your hands around her. <br><br>- Take her to a movie, it's dark, loud and you can't talk<br>- Take her to a restaurant, she will be more interested in the food than you.<br>- Take her in your car, you have to drive and not look at her all the time.<br><br><br>- Money comes only after romance in a women's heart, always remember that! - Unless youre dead ugly and stink a mile away! <br><br>I always wondered how come girls appreciated all this romance soo much here on the North American Contienent, but from your words and those of GOP, I understand now! Go to europe and see how guys treat girls on their first date. Romance is the key!<br><br>_________________________________________<br>http://www.geocities.com/djstefan/bush.gif<P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by djstefan on 03/23/04 02:38 PM (server time).</EM></FONT></P>

What a wife Mike ;-). Exactly what I'm talking about. I don't expect to ask a girl "hey lady, you pay this time." If she can't natural realize it like your wife did, then I just can't get attracted to her. To another guy she can be the greatest girl, its just my view, and maybe only a minority of men have this view, but its still some men.<br><br> Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country .

When that happens my friend, money is no object!!!<br><br>Thank you for the good wishes Amy . I agree with your post, however the point of this thread was more the financial aspects of a relationship, not the central aspect of love, that's why I didn't mention anything about it. You're feelings are right, I've never been love, outside puppy love. By the way, money is always an object, its just the way you treat it. When married, each dollar will be the same for me as it is for my wife, I'll be able to trust her to do whatever with our accounts, and she could trust me (although major decisions should be done together).<br><br> Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country .

I agree with parts of your post, and not with others. For instance, if you love someone with all your heart, and they don't love you back, there is no point in it. A relationship is a two way street, it has to go both ways with love, respect...basically everything.<br><br>On the part of money.... Have you been only dating "gold diggers" or something? Granted I'm a man saying this, and I can't speak with any right on what "all women want", but I know if a women loves a man, and it's mutual, money doesn't matter at all. My parents have been married for 39 years, and have gone through stints where they have both been unemployed with basically no money. Did my mom ever leave my dad because he didn't have any money? Hell no! She stuck it out with him and they got through it, and in my opinion, are better people because of it. It's truely sad in the last 10-15 years that people have begun to focus more on money then on the love in relationship, because really they are two totally seperate things, and should not effect each other.<br><br>----<br>Stupidity is like nuclear power.

Re: Relationship Post II: I'm not paying for dinner - 03/23/04 12:35 PM

Morom,<br><br>I agree with your post. Maybe I'm not communicating myself correctly. My point about money is not that it affects love, but that money isn't irrelevent. It can't be thrown around, and I won't be attracted to a girl who expects me to drive a 5 series, and has a spendoholic personality. I like girls who are frugal, and who knows, maybe know something or two about investing, and most women are better savers than men. <br><br>The love you described about your parents is the exact love I have the patience to wait for, and the only love I would want to wait for. This doesn't change my attraction to frugal girls ;-). Money, like health, is not irrelevent. It just should be no concern once married. However they are important signs before marriag giving you insight into the future of a relationship. <br><br>No matter what income group a person comes from, you can tell about a person's attitude towards moeny. If you ever seen "Rich Girls" on MTV, they might be the type who can afford to pay for their eventually boyfriends all the time, yet their spendaholic mentality is a total turn off. I don't care about the background of a girl, but her attitutde towards money should be taken into account. We just won't be compatible when I say "Honey let's get the Honda Accord" and she says "NOOO, where's my Lexus?"<br><br> Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country .

Re: Relationship Post II: I'm not paying for dinner - 03/23/04 01:14 PM

The only person that makes money relevent to a relationship is the person that allows money to be some kind of "controller" in their life. <br><br>I think, in my personal experiences, that people that have had to work hard for their money have a better appreciation for it, then those who just "fell into it". I grew up lower-middle class as did my parents, and have always had a repsect for money. When I go out on a date with a girl and have a good time, I pay for the full dinner only because it is my way of showing my appreciation for the good time that I had. If I didn't have a good time, or the two of us didn't "hit it off" then I'm much more likely to split the meal between the two of us, and leave things as they may be. <br><br>I have dated different typs of women in my day, and not to sound like I'm labelling or grouping people together, but there are specific types when it comes to paying for the first, and/or subsequent dates.<br><br>-Expects to have the dinner paid for, and doesn't even thank you for paying<br>-Offers to pay for dinner, but thanks you when you cover it for her<br>-Pays for dinner and/or gets upset if she can't at least cover the tip<br><br>Granted there are probably sub-catagories of this, but I prefer the middle ground when it comes to the specific issue. I'll pay for dinner, but she better not be expecting $50 entree's on the first date. That's not to say I will take her to McD's, but somewhere in between there..<br><br>All in all, if I date a women who is interested in me for the money, that is a *major* turn-off and I most likely won't date her again.<br><br>----<br>Stupidity is like nuclear power.

You nailed it. Seems like every relationship I've been in the girl equates money to love. The last one ended very badly and very painfully.

So, I know it's not just me.<br><br>I started dating one girl. Total earth child type of person. As soon as things got serious, she starts complaining about how I don't take her out enough, I don't buy her things, I'm not helping her with her bills. Yikes! Found another one.<br><br>No no, I have not come across a women to date, that isn't about money. You can be as caring, thoughtful, kind, supportive, and all that crap till you're blue in the face, but as soon as someone else waves a credit card in their face, they're gone.

I've been holding my tongue for a while and it's been tempting to react wildly but I hope I don't come across that way.<br><br>I think every woman is different and it isn't right to assume that every female has "gold diggerish" qualities in her. I can only speak for myself though, so I'll try to do that.<br><br>I grew up a certain way, was brought up to believe that people should be treated kindly and respectfully. I didn't always manage it but I continue to try. I did not grow up lacking anything, my parents provided for me very well. I was a very content child...if a little chubby. <br><br>When I think about people I've been attracted to, I find myself getting drawn to smart, talented, witty and kind people. These people, more often than not, become my friends. Money has had very little to do with my relationships with them -- the only time I can think of money being a factor has been in my youth, when circles of friends depended on social classes (eg your neighborhood).<br><br>When I used to go out on a date, I expected certain things -- smarts, wit, kindness included -- and of course the romantic idea that he asked me out because he likes me. It is, to me, common courtesy that if you are asking someone out, you do that person the honor of paying his/her way. That still works for me. If I extend the invitation, I had better be able to pay!<br><br>Perhaps I think too young, too old...whatever. When I was dating, that's what worked for me, if someone does not like dealing with that, there's a good chance that man didn't get to see me again. Sounds simple enough. <br><br>

If as you say, you want someone that thinks like yourself<br>then some one that puts money ahead of all else is what you get.<br><br>You should become a politician Celandine, you can twist a person's words as good as the best of them. I can guarantee most people reading my posts don't think I put money above all else. I put a combination of reason and compassion above all else. Yet of course, this is the tired class warfare gearing its head into a fun and more laid-back thread.Couldn't resist it Celandine ;-)? <br><br>You like throwing rocks at successful people, yet they are the ones that donate the most to charities, and make the decisions that are the lifeblood of our economy. I'm not saying I'm one of them, but I definately work towards that goal. <br><br>I'm sorry but being pro-markets, and being frugal isn't about worshipping money. In fact, look at the regions most stereotyped to be "gold-digging" regions, Los Angeles/Beverly Hills, and see party registration being something like 5 to 1 Democrat. Wake-up and stop the class warfare and attack on spending/investing wisely. Choice is a great thing.<br><br>As for the Krispy Kreme tip, it was geared to people with low shame levels, and I doubt most girls would consider getting the free doughnuts in that fashion since a girl would have too much shame (definately not a bad thing). I won't do it in front of a girl, unless we were dating for quite some time. Oh, and I've never went twice in the same time period for the free sample. <br><br>It's called saving money! Not a bad thing to do, of course, tax lovers such as yourself probably don't care about this ;-).

Which way to Cuba? - 03/24/04 12:28 AM

Ah Cherry, how much life would be better for you in Cuba, where you can indulge your anti-American and anti-business views all the way to Castro's arms ;-).<br><br>Fembots? Honestly, such a typical last grabbing action for an ignorant chauvinist! PMS feminists? Daaaahhmmn— I guess we'd better get back in the kitchen and try to be *hot chicks* with no real thought except those outside of the material world… oh wait, isn't what that thread was about in the first place? <br><br>My post focused on women empowerement over Operahfication. Feminists want women to not shave their legs, dress like men, act like men, and basically, kill all of a woman's sexual and personal appeal. Very different agenda than embracing a non-victim mentality. By the way, please don't see the term "Fembots" as any relation to Austin Powers movies. Those Fembots were hot ;-).<br><br>Perhaps she was morning the death of democracy in the USA?<br><br>Typical ultra-left response. So when a Republican wins office, it is "the death of democracy." If only you could see how anti-democratic your statement is. This is on election night, before the recount fiasco! You've just shown how far to the looney left you are.<br><br>It is no surprise you are making posts about dates on this forum, rather than going on them. <br><br>Until Fidel takes over, I'll do what I want, when I want. If I felt like going on a date, I would go find someone. If I feel like watching Lord of the Rings extended edition and piecing the entire story together, that's what I'll do. If I feel like going to a party, that's what I'll do. This is an online cafe, I talked about the things that interest me. Maybe if you weren't PMSing 24/7, you could enjoy a fun post here and there ;-).<br><br>Also, here you are so knowledgeable about PMS— what the heck are you talking about? Is that something you saw on a sitcom? Or perhaps something your mother said? Doesn't seem to me you have known too many real women. <br><br>Most women I've known and made friends with are mature and control their anger (like most guys). Girlfriends have been angry at me when I deserved it, never did they do it for the heck of it. You and Celandine totally remind me of college feminists, boring, boring and more boring, with a strong touch of PMS ;-). What's up with you guys bringing my parents, my dad's money, and now my mom into your posts? Ooops, forgot that family values is irrelevent on the far left ;-).<br><br>Don't you think it makes logical sense to believe what nonprofit organizations hold as the truth vs. large corporations who only have financial gain? <br><br>I've given the source as the Economist for multiple posts. If you come down from your sweet world of rainbows and leprechauns you will see that non-profits have much to gain financially. They lobby for money, both from individuals and the government, and keep lobbying. As for them being unbias, that's just ridiculous. You think an organization called "saving seeds" or "let's hold hands for international peace and love federation" will seriously consider any science supporting GM foods, or any strategy based on pre-emptive war? You live in lala land with Celandine, or should I call it anti-American land. When it comes down to it, your anti-business views died with the fall of the berlin wall. There is a new America, one much ahead of the great society and new deal. This new America is based on an ownership society, where Americans unlike your socialistic wet-dreams, own homes, cars, stocks, mutual funds, IRAs and 401ks. The future of America is this ownership society, and let's not forget the boom in entrepreneurship and small business. You're the past Cherry, America 2.0 zigged ahead during Reagan and Clinton, and now Bush is caring that torch ;-).<br><br>Howard Zinn: I went to the site Cherry. Seems like just another academic, whose views come from the commune. History is about the individual, and so is life. Individuals, not communes, change things. Galileo, Newton, Einstein, Lincoln, Churchill, Reagan. Reagan is a good example. We might still be living with a USSR if Carter, Mondale, Dukakis, and the other weak presidents had been around ( Well better than if you were president, we might be living under communism ). It took a Reagan to change the direction of a party, country, and the world. Be it a Reagan, a Jobs, a Gates, a Bezos, a Bin Laden, or a Hitler, in the end, history comes back to the individuals.<br><br>Face it Cherry, you three are uniformly left-wing, ultra-left, on practically every important issue. I'm the one who embraces issues from the left (immigration, drugs, penal reform, guns) and the right (taxes, regulations, foreign policy). I'm the one that gets my news from the BBC on a daily basis (liberal), or occasionally listening to NPR while driving (liberal) or reading the Economist (libertarian). You three are so closed-minded, you can't even see it. Another resemblence to the college feminists ;-).<br><br>PS:<br>You still didn't say which one of you wears the pants in the relationship?

Hey Celandine, stop using the n-word. I know that might be how you feel about African-Americans, but please don't do it publicly, keep it to your private PMS moments. You want to twist my words about women, I can easily twist yours about race . <br><br>I have made no anti-women jokes, only anti-feminist ones. Only a Fembot would equate that with making a racist joke about African-Americans. Even if someone did a woman joke there is nothing wrong with that, since its all in good fun. People have fun outside the commie PMS red zone you two live in, and men make jokes about women, while women make jokes about men. <br><br>I guarantee any sensible person reading my posts can see I don't bash women. Contrary to it, Republicans are the greater pro-women party, dealing more strongly against rape, and against hand-outs and gender preference that victimize female entrepreneurs/business women instead of treating them as equals. <br><br>So, why don't you just cut your crap?<br><br>I can't cut you and Cherry, that would be animal abuse ;-). Your buddies from PETA would come crying ;-). You two want to turn my innocent relationship and food posts around to personal attacks and politics (not to mention someone else's post about stickies!) so be it, it's hard-ball now ;-).<br><br><br> "A rising tide lifts all boats."

I don't think their accounts should be zapped. Ignoring them is the way to go... but few can practice that level of self control. Whenever they post, someone always thinks "man, I got a great zinger for him!" And it keeps going and going.<br><br>

Yeah...but there is the problem of stepping into a thread and having to scroll and scroll and scroll and scroll to find the "nice people's" posts. And it sucks to see my favorites taking the bait.<br><br>I'm sure this message board has seen a serious increase in traffic from all the long-winded crap. And Bandwidth isn't free.<br><br>But in the end I agree...so I'm ignoring anybody with less than 500 posts (Amy comes with a reference so she gets a pass ).<br><br>-------<br>S3V3N

Aww, that is no fair. You should just check their join date. That would be good indication of who to ignore and who not to.<br><br>----<br>Stupidity is like nuclear power. It can be used for good or evil.... and you don't want to get any on you.

Yeah, I know what you mean. Too bad these boards don't have an ignore button. (Wait, then no one would listen to my witty and insightful remarks!)<br><br>
