A Man's View of 50 Shades Of Grey

I really try to avoid poorly written books with boring characters and predictable plots. Note to guys: If you want to understand how a woman thinks, what a woman is asking for, looking for, etc -- approach the woman you're curious about, ask her about herself, and listen to what she tells you. Seriously, don't waste your time reading pop psych books, endless surveys or watch the stupid shows. Women are just as different from one another as men. There is really only one thing I can think of that is certain to apply to all women (and men) that is truly seductive. Demonstrate your interest in another person by asking questions and listening to the answers. And, if she doesn't ask you any questions in return, then don't waste your time with her. I'm not surprised that a lot of women like this book...a lot of popular fiction is unbearably bad. I watched Twilight. I learned my lesson. Maybe reading about sex is just as satisfying as reading about people eating food.
Living here in New England - yes, NH has decided to die. New Hampshire has changed fundamentally with Mass liberals fleeing north to escape taxes while voting to increase everybody else's taxes. Also, Nashua and Manchester have become surging welfare communities just waiting for amnesty.
"Democrat’s cartoonish understanding of the electorate" Unfortunately, the Democrat's understanding of the electorate is spot on during presidential elections. The mistake the Dems made was that they forgot this was a midterm election. The Democrat Party base isn't really aware that there are Senators and Congressmen from their states. I'm afraid that the 2016 election will revert right back to cartoonish single issue voters who will surge to the polls to elect the "First Female President". Campaign slogan for 2016 : Hillary Clinton will protect your uterus! And, the crowds will go WILD.
There really are 2 Americas - the America that votes in every election (including midterms) and the "staggeringly clueless" America that votes every 4 years in the presidential election. The real question is whether Obama will be able to grant amnesty/voting to millions of non-citizens tipping the scales permanently to a majority for the "staggeringly clueless".

The Forever War

Someone doesn't know much about the war in the Pacific.
I agree with you. And, there is no mention of the murderer in this story - the coward who hit a tiny child and wanted to run away from their guilt............... Inconceivable to be so cowardly not to stop. Inexcusable.
Massachusetts has contaminated all of New England - specifically New Hampshire. Sad that Mass residents flee the taxes and invade NH bringing the SAME ideology with them.

On the Death of My Father

Thank you so much. My dad died 8 years ago at 90 and he will always be with me. Like you, I have been blessed with loving, fine parents. Mom is 92 still living at home. So, as you noted - I am still a child and Dad is waiting for us with God. I will read your father's autobiography. I'm so glad he left you such a gift.

Amnesty Lite Is Still Amnesty

Thank you again for making this issue clear and not selling out to the corporate folks who want to persuade everyone that amnesty is good for the economy. Larry Kudlow has totally sold out on this issue.

Who Owns You?

I also usually agree with Walter Williams, but there are certain problems with the "Right to Try" proposal. I would support this as long as patients receive completely accurate information on the risks. And, since the drug companies and medical device companies (e.g. ECT machines) are very eager to begin making money, the risks are likely to be minimized. And, most important, will patients be allowed the "Right to REFUSE"? In the case regarding the schizophrenics in the European example cited, I will be willing to bet that the actual patients did NOT make the decision to take clozapine. When it comes to the FDA protecting the safety of patients - particularly those with psychological conditions - the patients will be at the risk of being used for experiments without the right or ability to refuse. ECT remains today a prime example of the FDA allowing a destructive procedure because of the failure to conduct the testing to demonstrate the degree of damage to patients. There is big money in this procedure and patients are NOT properly informed even today of the known damage.
