You hope that Bernie Sanders wins the election for president, so America can get back to being decent?
Bernie Sanders is a self described socialist.
Hummm wonder how that transcribes to any American values.
Amazing. I am trying to find a country that has or did(in history or present time) accept socialism, fascism,communism or any "ism" and was better for doing so. And throw in "values, and decent" and I am totally lost.
What does surprise me(or not) is how many Americans have been drinking the Kool-Aid. I suggest to try out an "ism" and go live in North Korea. At least you do not have to make a decision on how to style your hair. There are only 28 state approved haircuts and that includes both men and women. And do not think you can just throw caution to the wind and let it grown, you are limited to less than two inches. But maybe I am wrong and this just brings the people back to values and increases harmony. :roll:
Sheesh

Im kinda confused, did some1 say Orgasim.
My eyes can be dodgy. Hugs All.
Sally you have every right to have your opinions, and to voice them anyway you want, we all have our own opinions, some will speak out and some won't. I don't see why people shouldn't voice their opinions. unless it hurtful or disrespectful to others.   Scrummy  should have gone to specs savers   :lol:    I agree Hugs to all

I would be careful on how you would judge someone, what if you are some sort of "ism"?
If you are an Alpha person, just have to do it in a certain way so that there is no abuse or any sort of problem to a relationship. Proper communication is the key to a relationship.

Sorry Rod, your part this time is to long and text size is to small for me, so not going to answer it.

There is nothing wrong with a woman being assertive. Her own mind, feelings, ideas...A-okay. It's when they become aggressive - rude - I find that objectionable. As it would be in a man. There should be no double standard.

How many Americans understand socialism? Precious few. To me it means caring about your neighbour...more than just self. Period. What's wrong with that? Me me me is better? No. Marx's ideas were brilliant. He was a smart man. In terms of implementation...I'd be the first to admit that it's never been done anywhere properly. Soviet Union was a dictatorship, not democratic. Bernie is solidly into democracy. That means fairness. North Korea is a dictatorship - and a pretty crazy one - but that has nothing to do with Marx or socialism.

Canada and many European countries have embraced elements of socialism and they're better for it. Health care...what a fiasco in the United States. Bizarre. Better now than it was. Here in Canada I just present a card, and I get treatment. Here health care is regarded as a right, not companies juicing you for everything you're worth. The move to privatizing everything - education, prisons, water, you name it - is messed up. Corporations don't do anything better. Generally much worse, because their motive is profit. As soon as money is the highest priority, things get really messed up. Public education under the government is socialist. It means kids don't get books trying to sell products. (That's attrocious. Disgusting. It's not education.)

In the United States, a few own most of the country. Does that benefit everyone? No. The masses are annoyed. That's why Bernie - a very decent and I think wise man who wants the best for everyone - is very likely to become President...and a fine President. He will set about waging war on all the Bernie Madoffs. And once he does that...he's gonna be surrounded by applause. It'll be deafening. It's time for another American revolution. The alternative is worse and worse for the majority.

LOL. I love that pic. :-)
I'm not sure what an 'Alpha" female is. I know from experience that a so-called 'Alpha' male is usually full of himself, I was a bouncer for a time and I could tell who the Alphas were; they were the twerps  who we usually had to the ambulances for after they had gotten their heads bashed in.  The Alpha Dogs in 'Nam usually didn't last long because they wouldn't listen to anyone but themselves; our nickname for them was "In-and-Outers". Usually green-mint junior officers or John Wayne wannabees. 

My late wife was one who had her own strong opinions and ways of doing things. I was an aggressive, macho-type when we first met, but I had no doubt that there was reasoning behind everything she said or did. There were things that she was better or more experienced at and vice versa. I guess it all comes down to respect;  even before I met my wife, most of my girlfriends were strong-minded but nice.
Maybe I was just darn lucky. 
I guess the term 'Alpha Female' as used here probably means strong, accomplished women who are to be respected. When the term applies to men, sometimes it just means he's jerk unless he proves himself to the pack.

Who would like to be respected. I think that sums is up. Maybe I (we) are opinionated and maybe we're wrong sometimes but I think it just comes down to respect for us being able to have an opinion at all and to be able to voice it.
