Re: What Are Women Really Attracted To?

ronin10 ·
Because women think with their vaginas -- that is, they use their awesome sexual power to control, manipulate, and get what they want from men. And men let them get away with it. I don't know if women think with their vaginas but they do know a man's sexual appetite is usually a trillion times hers, so by default she probably has to think with her vagina to have some sort of control. A woman hates a "player" because she has no sexual power over him and cannot manipulate him, yet still finds...

Re: Reparations and Poor Whites

To quantify it, if slave reparations are awarded in the amount of, say, $50 trillion - representing the unpaid wages from the slavery era compounded with interest, couldn't poor/working class whites also make a claim for that amount since they would have been the ones to earn those wages had not slaves been imported to do "their" jobs? I'm trying to explore what others think about the point. Is it valid and logical? As well, I'm interested in the implications of this. Does acknowledging this...

Re: Why Should We Just "Get Over It"?

The Case Against Reparations Sometimes a bad idea is so pregnant with mischief that it compels our attention. One such idea is now propelling a movement to secure reparations for American slavery. The seeming simplicity of this plea is truly seductive. In skeletal form the argument looks like this: Once upon a time some white people enslaved some black people; the institution of American slavery robbed "the black community" of its inheritance; the long years of servitude produced enduring...

I assume you're referring to the trade deficit. Instead of blaming it all on Bush and the evil Republican free market-loving capitalists, YOU can actually do something to lower the trade deficit yourself. Yeah! Next time you're shopping at Wal-Mart, don't automatically reach for every product marked "Made In China" or "Hecho en Mexico." Look around. See if there are still any products made in the USA. Every little bit can help reduce the trade deficit.
