Going Man Beast:
Wed, March 5, 2014 - 12:06 PM
Is a term used to describe a teen that didn't just hit puberty, he beat the shit out of it..When a person is called man beast, it is usually because he hit puberty before a lot of other teens..
Person: "Damn dude..You used to be all fat, but now your freakin ripped..Your going man beast!".
Place your bets on which legislator is hotboxing the Capitol Building first..On Tuesday, the D.C. Council voted 10-1 to decriminalize marijuana..The law is one of the nation's most lenient, and reduces the potential one-year jail sentence for possession of less than one ounce of weed to just a $25 fine..The lawmakers maintained a ban on smoking in public, but D.C. police will not be allowed to arrest someone for the smell of marijuana; they will have to see smoke..

In her first public remarks on the crisis in Ukraine, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told attendees at a fundraiser for the Boys and Grils Club that Russia’s actions have been similar to population transfers by the Nazis in the run-up to World War II, and that Vladimir Putin's claims of protecting Russians were similar to Hitler’s claims of protecting Germans in Czechoslovakia and Romania..
Wed, March 5, 2014 - 10:20 AM
Meanwhile, Putin launched a broadside against the U.S. on Tuesday, declaring at a press conference, “It’s necessary to recall the actions of the United States in Afghanistan, in Iraq, in Libya, where they acted either without any sanction from the U.N. Security Council or distorted the content of these resolutions…Our partners, especially the United States, always formulate their geopolitical and state interests, and then drag the rest of the world with them, guided by the well-known phrase ‘If you’re not with us, you’re against us.”.
Western powers on Sunday prepared a tough response to Russia's military advance into Ukraine and warned that Moscow could face economic penalties, diplomatic isolation and bolstered allied defenses in Europe unless it retreats..
Sun, March 2, 2014 - 9:21 PM
The crisis may prove to be a game-changer for President Barack Obama's national security policy, forcing him to give up his foreign policy shift to Asia and to maintain U.S. troop levels in Europe to limit Russia's reach..
The ill will and mistrust also could spill over on two other global security fronts — Syria and Iran — where Russia has been a necessary partner with the West..
Russian President Vladimir Putin gave no indication that he would heed the West's warnings..Hundreds of armed men surrounded a Ukrainian military base in Crimea, a pro-Russian area..In Kiev, Ukraine's capital, Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk alerted allies that "we are on the brink of disaster.".
Senior Obama administration officials said they believe Russia now has complete operational control over Crimea and has more than 6,000 forces in the region..The U.S. was also watching for ethnic skirmishes in other areas of eastern Ukraine, though the officials said they had not yet seen Russian military moves elsewhere..The officials were not authorized to publicly discuss the situation and spoke on condition of anonymity..
Secretary of State John Kerry said he has consulted with other world leaders, and "every single one of them are prepared to go to the hilt in order to isolate Russia with respect to this invasion.".Obama spoke Sunday with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Polish President Bronislaw Komorowski..
Kerry planned to travel to Kiev Tuesday for meetings with the Ukrainian government..Officials said the Obama administration would also focus this week on putting together a package of economic assistance for Ukraine..
The White House issued a joint statement Sunday evening on behalf of the Group of Seven saying the G-7 had suspended participation in the planning for an international summit in Russia this summer..In the statement, the U.S., Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and the United Kingdom condemned Russia's "clear violation of the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine.".They said Russia's advances in Ukraine violate the "principles and values" on which the G-7 and Group of Eight economic group, which includes Russia, operate..
In Brussels, NATO's secretary-general, Anders Fogh Rasmussen, said Russia's actions have violated a U.N. charter..He said the alliance was re-evaluating its relationship with Russia..
"There are very serious repercussions that can flow out of this," Kerry said..
Beyond economic sanctions and visa bans, freezing Russian assets, and trade and investment penalties, Kerry said Moscow risks being booted out of the powerful Group of Eight group of world powers as payback for the military incursion..
Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew told a Washington audience on Sunday that the United States is ready to work with other countries and the International Monetary Fund to provide support to bolster Ukraine's economy..He said he had been assured in discussions with Ukrainian officials that the new government is prepared to pursue the necessary reforms to overhaul the country's ailing economy..
Lew said that the administration was ready to supplement emergency IMF loans to cushion the impact economic reforms would have on vulnerable Ukrainians..
"The United States is prepared to work with its bilateral and multilateral partners to provide as much support as Ukraine needs to restore financial stability and return to economic growth if the new government implements the necessary reforms," Lew said during a speech Sunday night to the annual policy conference of AIPAC, America's largest pro-Israel lobbying group..
Several U.S. senators also called for bolstered missile defense systems based in Poland and the Czech Republic..
Russia is "going to be inviting major difficulties for the long term," said Kerry.."The people of Ukraine will not sit still for this..They know how to fight.".
Still, it was clear that few in the West were prepared to respond immediately to Putin with military force..
At the Vatican, Pope Francis used his traditional Sunday midday appearance in St. Peter's Square to urge world leaders to promote dialogue as a way of resolving the crisis in Ukraine..
Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., discussing the potential of U.S. military strikes against Russian troops in Crimea, said, "I don't think anyone is advocating for that.".One of the administration officials indicated that the U.S. was not weighing military action to counter Russia's advances, saying the Obama administration's efforts were focused on political, economic and diplomatic options..
Rubio said it would be difficult to rein in Moscow..He said Putin has "made a cost-benefit analysis..He has weighed the costs of doing what he's done, and ... clearly he has concluded that the benefits far outweigh the costs..We need to endeavor to change that calculus.".
As a starter, Rubio and fellow GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina said the Obama administration should return to plans it abandoned in 2009 to place long-range missile interceptors and radar in Poland and the Czech Republic..
Russia believed the program was aimed at countering its own missiles and undermining its nuclear deterrent..The White House denied that and has worked instead to place medium-range interceptors in Poland and Romania — aimed at stopping missiles from Iran and North Korea..
Experts said potential U.S. budget cuts to Army units based in Germany also could be slowed, or scrapped completely, to prevent a catastrophic erosion of stability and democracy from creeping across Europe..
The Pentagon is considering new reductions to Army units in Germany that already have been slashed under Obama..Currently, there are two Army brigades — up to 10,000 soldiers — based in Germany, where armored and infantry units have dug in since World War II..At the end of the Cold War, more than 200,000 American forces were stationed across Europe..
Damon Wilson, an Eastern European scholar, former diplomat and executive vice president of the Washington-based Atlantic Council think tank, said the U.S. must be ready to pour its efforts into Ukraine, even at the cost of policies and priorities elsewhere..
"We should be no longer deluded by the fact that Europe is a safe spot of stability and security, and not a security risk for the U.S.," Wilson said Sunday..He said that if Putin goes unchecked, it could result in war — the second one on NATO's borders..
The 3-year-old civil war in Syria is already a crisis for neighboring Turkey, a NATO member state..Ukraine is not a NATO member, but it borders four nations that are — Poland, Slovakia, Hungary and Romania..
"This is the biggest challenge to Obama's presidency," Wilson said.."This is a pretty tectonic shift in our perception of European security.".
Wilson said the White House may have to abandon the policy shift to Asia — its attempt to boost America's military, diplomatic and economic presence there — to refocus on Russia's threat..
He played down concerns that the new schism between Washington and Moscow will have an effect on efforts to end the war in Syria and limit Iran's nuclear program..
In Syria, Wilson said, Russia relied on a "bankrupt plan" in its failure to convince President Bashar Assad to embrace peace.."There's nothing happening there that's credible in a positive way,' he said..
With Iran, the bulk of negotiations already have been between the U.S. and Iran, said Wilson, who described Russia as mostly playing in the background..
Even so, officials said the U.S. and the West would not be able to roll over Russia on any number of global diplomatic or economic fronts..
Russia has made clear it is ready to provide weapons and military equipment to governments across the Mideast that have irked Washington..Russia's permanent seat on the U.N. Security Council gives it veto power over major world deliberations..
"The challenge is, we do need to have some kind of working relationship with Russia," Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., said Sunday.."And while we can impose these costs and take these steps, we've got to be mindful of the fact that they can impose their own costs on us."
During a Republican primary debate in the last presidential election cycle, there was a dispiriting moment in which tea party audience members cheered at the idea that a comatose uninsured American -- unable to afford health insurance -- would be left to die..That infamous outburst, among others, has prompted GOP bigwigs to try to cut back on primary season debates, hoping to limit appearances that might expose the party's baser impulses..

But that mean-spirited and contemptuous attitude toward the sick is alive and well in the Grand Old Party, as its maniacal (and futile) resistance to Obamacare has made clear..Now, one Republican politician is pushing that callousness to new lows: He wants to bar the uninsured from hospital emergency rooms..
Last week, Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal criticized a decades-old federal law that requires all hospitals that receive Medicare funds and have emergency facilities -- and that's most -- to treat any patient who walks in needing care, regardless of his ability to pay.."It came as a result of bad facts," Deal said, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.."And we have a saying that bad facts make bad law.".
Deal says that many people use emergency rooms unnecessarily, and those patients inflate health care costs..He is factually correct..But there are other facts that undercut his arguments and reveal his hypocrisy..
First off, Deal is among those red-state Republicans who have vociferously opposed the Affordable Care Act, which makes health insurance available to hundreds of thousands of people who couldn't otherwise afford it..If more people had health insurance policies that paid for doctors' visits, fewer would use emergency rooms for routine complaints..
Second, Deal, like many Republican governors, has refused the Medicaid expansion made possible by Obamacare, even though the federal government would pick up 100 percent of the cost for the first three years and 90 percent until the year 2022..That expansion is the best chance many Georgians without means have for getting health insurance..
So, to sum up, Deal hates Obamacare and refuses its Medicaid expansion, which would keep the working poor out of emergency rooms..In addition, he wants to deny them access to emergency rooms unless they can pay..Really, governor? Don't you insist that your values are "pro-life"?.
It's no wonder that GOP strategists shuddered when audience members responded so cruelly during the CNN/Tea Party Express debate in September 2011..It portrays the party as pitiless -- a reputation unlikely to attract a majority of voters..
Quiet as it's kept, most Americans support keeping Obamacare, despite the relentless pounding it has taken from Republicans..(And despite a website rollout that was infuriatingly incompetent.).A new poll by the Kaiser Family Foundation found that 56 percent of Americans favor keeping it in place, while just 31 percent want to repeal it..(Twelve percent want to replace it with a GOP plan.).
That's likely because most voters, no matter their reservations about Obamacare, know that the Republican Party has no good solution for the millions of Americans who work every day but still don't earn enough money to buy a health care plan..Americans have struggled with the nation's dysfunctional health care "system," and they know it's overdue for an overhaul..
Meanwhile, as the mid-term elections draw closer, the GOP struggles to come up with a plan that pretends to overhaul the health care system..Looking to avoid being painted as mere obstructions, House Republican honchos are working to draw their caucus together behind a bill that would replace Obamacare with a workable alternative..
But the most sincere plan so far -- one offered by Sens. Richard Burr, R-N.C., Tom Coburn, R-Okla. and Orrin Hatch, R-Utah -- would probably offer policies too skimpy to do any good once a policy-holder gets sick..
Besides, even that replacement idea seems unlikely to draw broad support among the far-right tea partiers, who believe that allowing the uninsured poor to die is the appropriate government response to the health care crisis..
That's a hulking bit of hypocrisy for a party that advertises itself as "pro-life.".Deal's latest proposal is one more reminder of how little that label means..
Why did Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer veto a 'religious rights' bill?.The gay rights movement’s allies now include Chambers of Commerce, major businesses, and Republican lawmakers..
Sun, March 2, 2014 - 11:24 AM
Mark this as the week when gay rights – including the push for same-sex marriage – became clearly and perhaps irrevocably mainstream..
Forty-five years after the Stonewall riots in Greenwich Village protesting police raids on gay bars, then the first “Gay Pride” marches a few years later – events which shocked many Americans more used to homosexuality remaining in the closet – the movement’s newest allies are strictly conventional: Chambers of Commerce, major business groups, and Republican lawmakers..
That’s clearly behind Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer’s veto of a “religious rights” bill allowing commercial enterprises to refuse doing business with gay individuals and couples, including those shopping for wedding products and services..The message from opponents of the bill had been heard loud and clear, and it wasn’t just gay rights groups..
As the Gannett news organization put it online:
“Apple, American Airlines, Marriott, and American Express strongly opposed the legislation, saying it would be bad for business..The Arizona Super Bowl Host Committee also called for a Brewer veto amid reports the NFL was looking at other sites for its 2015 championship game..
“The state’s Republican US senators, John McCain and Jeff Flake…and 2012 GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney also urged Brewer to nix the measure..
“Five GOP lawmakers who had supported the bill said they regretted their votes because of the backlash and its potential impact on the economy and the state’s reputation.”.
In a letter to Brewer, the heads of the Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce, the Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Greater Phoenix Leadership, and the Southern Arizona Leadership Council wrote: “We are troubled by any legislation that could be interpreted to permit discrimination against a particular group of people in the marketplace….The bill could also harm job creation efforts and our ability to attract and retain talent.”.
The outcome in Arizona showed “there are economic consequences to discrimination,” Todd Sears, a former investment banker and the founder of initiatives focused on lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) equality in business, told Politico..
“You’re seeing corporations weighing in on the side of LGBT inclusion and social justice in a way that you would not have seen 10, 15, 20 years ago,” Mr. Sears said..“This is about good business and discrimination and helping our employees be better at their jobs.”.
It was a message quickly heard and acted upon by officials in other states considering similar “religious rights” legislation..
The president of the Kansas Senate announced this week that his chamber would not take up a similar bill in the Kansas House, the Washington Post reported, and Ohio legislators withdrew their measure..
Lawmakers in South Dakota and Utah tabled bills similar to Arizona’s, and a bill in Georgia is unlikely to make it out of committee..The sponsor of Tennessee's bill withdrew his sponsorship in early February..
Meanwhile, a federal judge in Texas ruled against that state’s ban on same-sex marriage..That makes six states where judges have so ruled..(The others are Virginia, New Jersey, Oklahoma, Utah, and California.).
Today, same-sex marriages are legal in 17 states and the District of Columbia..Given public opinion polls showing a majority of Americans – including a large majority of younger voters – now approving gay marriage, it seems likely that the number of such states will increase..
While conservative churches and political organizations have fought that trend, a new study of public attitudes over the past decade indicates the challenges to that cause..
“In the decade since Massachusetts became the first state to legalize same-sex marriage, Americans’ support for allowing gay and lesbian people to legally wed has jumped 21 percentage points, from 32 percent in 2003 to 53 percent in 2013, transforming the American religious landscape,” the Public Religion Research Institute (PRRI) reported this week..
If anything, those who identify with a particular faith group are even more inclined to approve of gay marriage, the report finds..In addition to the 73 percent of religiously unaffiliated Americans who favor allowing gay and lesbian couples to legally marry, majorities of Jewish Americans (83 percent), white mainline Protestants (62 percent), white Catholics (58 percent) and Hispanic Catholics (56 percent) currently support same-sex marriage..
At the same time, churches which oppose gay marriage are finding a negative impact regarding younger members..
“While many churches and people in the pews have been moving away from their opposition to LGBT rights over the last decade, this new research provides further evidence that negative teachings on this issue have hurt churches’ ability to attract and retain young people,” said PRRI chief executive officer Robert P. Jones..“Nearly one-third of Millennials who left their childhood religion say unfavorable church teachings about or treatment of gay and lesbian people played a significant role in their decision to head for the exit.”.

Some on the right are really freaked out by gays..In fact, some don’t even want to do business with them. .You really need to have some serious issues with gay people to say “no” to their money in this challenging economy..
Why is fear mongering against the LGBT community part of the conservative platform?.True, Arizona governor Jan Brewer just vetoed a bill that would’ve in essence legally sanctioned discrimination against members of the gay community, but still 13 other states are or have recently considered similar laws..
People like Rush Limbaugh, Michelle Bachmann, and Tucker Carlson all publicly support the proposed Arizona law, with Carlson calling it necessary to prevent “fascism.”.Tea Party Nation President Judson Phillips even said that without this law, Christians could be forced to bake wedding cakes in the shape of a giant penis..
Then there are the influential conservative “Christian” groups who have long demonized gays, such as Bryan Fischer at the American Family Association (AFA) who said the “homosexual agenda” is “the greatest immediate threat to every freedom and right that is enshrined in the First Amendment.”.Even the Republican Party’s 2012 platform made it seem like the end of days were approaching with their description of gay marriage as “an assault on the foundations of our society.”.
Is there really a nefarious “homosexual agenda”?.Could it be that gay people personally did something to piss off the right?.
Being neither gay nor a conservative, I wanted to figure out what’s up..So, I employed a two-prong approach: First, ask conservatives: What’s your problem with gays?.Second, ask gay people to reveal their “homosexual agenda” and find out what the hell they are doing that scares the right so much?.
I began by reaching out the conservative groups like AFA, The Family Research Council (FRC), and the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), which is the organization that championed the Arizona anti-gay bill..
Not all responded, but the AFA’s former general manager, Dr. Buster Wilson, responded via email in his personal capacity..Wilson explained the “homosexual agenda” in this light: “Simple ‘equality’ is not the goal of the gay activists..They want total domination in some cases…not just ‘accept them’ but to bow to them and their wants.“.
I also heard from a spokesperson for the FRC who forwarded me its organization’s pamphlet, “The Top Ten Myths About Homosexuality.”. This pamphlet makes it clear that some at the FRC are truly obsessed with gays, it’s an almost a stalker-esque fixation with comments about the alleged dating and even sexual habits of gays..
I connected with a conservative Republican political strategist who wanted to remain anonymous..He explained that conservative Christians are not just opposed to homosexuality, but to all sins, like adultery and gluttony..However, he commented that adulterers aren’t having parades in the streets nor are they seeking legal protection to commit their sins..
Okay, let’s turn to the LGBT community..First, they all denied doing anything personally to piss off conservatives. .But each offered their own theory for the right’s fear and loathing..
Ross Murray, GLAAD’s Director of News, said that some conservatives are angry because they erroneously view freedom as a “zero-sum game,” meaning that if LGBT community achieves equal treatment under the law, they will lose it. .Murray explained that while many in the LGBT community no longer have to hide for fear of losing, “our jobs, our family, and all of our resources,” they are still subject to violent attacks and, “gay people can still be fired from their jobs in 29 states, and transgender people can be in 33.”.
Comedian Sabrina Jalees, in a moment of brutal candor, revealed a bit of the homosexual agenda: “You should see what we've got planned once we get our equal rights..We're gonna go ahead and keep living..Almost exactly the same as heterosexuals do, just with better clothes.”.
Daily Beast columnist and CNN contributor Sally Kohn responded: "Apparently, fairness and equality just piss some people off…I'm not going to say that all the extremist homophobes are really just jealous. .So I won't say it. But..."
Comedian Judy Gold was puzzled by the right’s anger considering: “They listen to our music and radio shows, watch our films…buy our clothes and jewelry, let us style their hair…and design their homes and offices.”.
Jim David, also a comedian, responded succinctly: “People who aren't having any good sex are seriously threatened by those who are.”.
I also reached out to a person who straddles the two communities, Gregory Angelo, executive director of the Log Cabin Republicans.. Angelo believes that only a small vocal portion of the right truly has issues with gays..He was optimistic that many Republicans views of the LGBT community were evolving for the better, especially millennials..
However, the most alarming response was from a friend who works for a non-profit organization..He wouldn’t permit me to include his name in this article because a big part of his employer’s funding comes from a Christian organization and he fears being fired if they discover he’s gay..
So what’s my conclusion?.Clearly some, not all, on the right are angry, afraid or simply freaked out by gay people..They fear that the LGBT community, which is a small percentage of our population, will one day dominate America..
The LGBT community, on the other hand, simply seeks equal rights under the law..They want to be judged on their work, not fired for their sexual orientation..
Who will win?.Well, if our history of evolving on issues of race and religion is any guide, the LGBT community will prevail..It will take time and effort, but I predict confidently they will overcome, and that’s a good thing for our nation..

We now know that our private communications aren't as private as we thought..While we're calling, texting, emailing, and visiting our friends and loved ones, the NSA is tuning in and collecting massive amounts of data on millions of Americans..
Thanks to the revelations from Edward Snowden, each week we get new evidence that the NSA has vastly overstepped its authority..
But the good news is that the tide is turning in the fight to rein in all this runaway surveillance..
I just signed the petition telling Congress to get in gear and pass legislation ending the secret surveillance state..Will you sign too?.
Watch the clip "NSA is coming to town"..HoHoHo..

We have had an unusual increase in Tribe users' reporting a number of child exploitative images. We take this very seriously and have dedicated resources to responding to the reports and cooperating with law enforcement.
Tue, March 6, 2012 - 6:23 AM
Tribe's Code of Conduct specifically prohibits the posting of any image or text which associates children with sexuality in any way and the vast majority of Tribe's users conduct themselves in keeping with our CoC. We have, consistent with our CoC, promptly reported illegal images to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and are currently supporting law enforcement in the active prosecution of criminal violations.
This law enforcement process is ongoing, and while we expect the guilty parties to be brought to justice quickly, there is necessarily some delay while evidence is gathered. We appreciate the support of the Tribe community in bringing violations to our attention and want to assure the tribe community that we are working with multiple law enforcement agencies to expediently respond to all reports and to remove the violators from our community.
Please report any suspect images by sending the URL to firstname.lastname@example.org.

I was looking for a tornado..I could here trees breaking, crushing and slamming the ground in the woods N. of me..It sounded like a freight train going through the woods the whole time..This storm is the same as a tornado, but they don't call it a tornado because it only occurs every 4 years or so..and usually in the Midwest..As strange as the earthquake we had a few years back..I've been in earthquakes in LA and VA..Va's is more scary..Simply for the fact we don't get earthquakes in VA..It was a shock..I knew what it was when my chair started moving, shacking..I'm on so much medication now, that I jumped from me chair and wondered was it me, or the chair actually moving..Then I saw the water in the water bowl slouching around..Here I go again, outside..They say stay inside..But no thanks again, I'd rather dodge the falling trees..
This storm broke or uprooted tons of trees..The electric was off for 5 days and nights..Temperatures in the 90's and 100's everyday..Not enough breeze to blow a leaf on a tree..It came through Indiana, Ohio, West VA, and VA..Covered hundreds of miles across..What an experience..
We made it through, no trees on the house or cars..The only thing though, is I got pneumonia, but am about over it..Have FUN and take care..
2/14/2013..I had such a great day yesterday with Mom, and PatWick..What a blast..I LOVE those two..What a pair..Talked,
watched TV, movies and ate..
I was to sore to get up this morning from laughing..Finally up at 10 AM..PatWick telling me it was Friday.."To late to go shopping", he said.."Get up and out..Get it done..Be back home..Don't like the DARK"..
But gets confused and thinks of the Dark One at times..Bad mistake..But he has his own mind to make..
As for Santanisem..If Your invitation to me to join your Personal Network has been denied it is mainly for one reason..Your profile is full of Hail Satan and such crap I'm not interested..As they say..We can only serve one Master and mine sure is not The Evil One..
8/5/2013..Just reminiscing about wayyy wayyy back in time..When I was growing up, in the 70's, sex was a guaranteed pleasure and that was never to be resisted..
I smoked, I drank, did drugs and seized the day..I also read, wrote and sifted through life..It was a wild time when Nice Boys Didn't, and then, us other Boys That Did..
I was a young and naïve boy swept off my feet..I left with the county fair at 16..I was not a virgin nor was I a stranger to "older" (over-twenty y.o.) men..
Much later in years there wasn't any hiding places..Nightclubs, bars, well known hangouts, Sunday brunches and parties with friends..
Lovers appeared to have been as possessive as I was jealous.
They could be called greedy..They could be a little mad, a little lunatic, a Dr. Jekyll sober, a Mr. Hyde drunk..And indeed I feared that I was a boring sober by implication, less boring drunk..
Perhaps drink was an escape..More likely it was the entry to a more agreeable and magical personality..In drink - while you are strong enough to take it - there can be the oriental experience of a continuous present.."I love you forever" means that moment is forever and the love will always exist in that seemingly profound sense..Never mind the more linear chronology.."You are the one I have to live for" means just that, at precisely that moment, desperately..Some would say it was "unfair" on me but I knew about their wives, children or lovers..I knew their vows to them; "I'll never leave you"..I would be heartbroken when they left, but at that age I was heartbroken a lot..What is interesting is the intensity and sincerity which I put in it..I took far far more public risks than I need have done..Said far more than expected..Acted, appeared, "was" in love..It was not so much a "need to be loved" with me (though who has not got that to some degree?) it was a huge appetite for love, for the loving; I was in love with love itself..Later in my life I thought about drunk times, sober times, about how I had loved all sorts of men - old, young, fat, smooth, hairy, lovely, ugly, all creeds, colors, ages and types - and I loved to make love to all of them..
My interest was in taking risks with life, exploring the limits of my personality in the street, bars, in bed or on this stage called life..
For I guess a multitude of reasons, I was hammering myself and hammering my way through life like some Celtic Demon..Daring myself to do my best and my most and life to do its damnedest..My life was way beyond that was acceptable as any "norm"..My own man, I went my own way..It suited me to live several different lives..
My private behavior was beginning not to be that altogether unusual..The ancient world dominated by Doris Day values were breaking up..Divorce rates rocketed, the ideal of sanitized suburban stability began to seem limited, respect for authority plummeted..The idea of the men or women who went their own way rumbled in the near distance..In that sense, my lust, my apparent mission to screw the world and all that moved thereon, and to do it for what to me were good and sufficient reasons, chimed in perfectly with the era..I came out of the closets of the 60's fully primed for the new decade..
In 1970 at my Moms I had sat on the commode, and what sounded like diarrhea, actually turned out to be blood..At 17 I had surgery for polyps..There has never been such a pain in the ass..By the fall of '70 I was about healed..Enough that I knew I had to get out..Had to move on..Where?.Anywhere..Somewhere new and exciting..Just turning 18 I went to Washington D.C...There I met my first husband, and my first marriage..No it wasn't legal..But we lived together as a couple, so I considered him my husband..I KNEW it was too soon after surgery for anal sex..But what's an in-heat, horny twink suppose to do..
I got a job as bus boy at a waterfront restaurant..Than after a month I went to work at another waterfront restaurant where I played waiter..Fantastically unheard of huge tips..My husband worked for a court reporter Co...He had a two story house..We lived on 8th St. N.W...Oh yes, for anyone familiar with D.C...8th St. N.W. during the riots of the 70's..NO Fear-we had bars on all the down stair windows and doors..No one was after people anyway - only the government vehicles..City buses, maintenance vehicles, police cars - burnt..I would sit in an upstairs window and watch the excitement below on the street..Black men against the police..The men cops seemed to be kind of tame..But the women cops were aggressive..They would knock a man in the head with their blackjacks and then they'd throw them in the back of a paddy wagon..No T.V. during that time..
My husband had rooms rented to a houseful of drag queens..My weekends where spent working the restaurant lunch and doing their makeup for the drag shows..Then call cabs and off to the bar for the show..
Oh life was good..But nature seems to have a way to make something happen if things seem to be going to good..I was so close to my Mom..We had been through a lot..She was always there anytime I needed her, and I was there for her..I called her one evening..Soon after she came home from the hospital with surgary..She told me that she hadn't had anything to eat since she had gotten out of hospital..My brother and his wife were freeloading off her living there for nothing, eating her food and eating out, but couldn't see she got something to eat..
I left for the three hour drive back to central VA and fixed her something to eat..Then for a week or so I went back every morning after taking my husband to work and fixed her food and extra for the evening, then back to D.C. in time to pick up husband from work..She got strength to get back on her feet and fix her meals again..
Wouldn't be long and I'd be needing her again because of my health problem..
After a year of continuous anal sex, starting back before I had completely healed from the surgery, I was in bad trouble with my colon again..I went to a Doc in D.C...He put the long hard plastic part of a vacuum cleaner up my ass..Damn these Drs. were even more barbaric than I'd ever been..I decided to go back to VA for surgery..Second surgery turned out to be way better than the first..The dumb Dr. told my Mom that as long as I kept having sex the way I was, that I'd always have a problem with it..He told me, "NO MORE anal sex for a year..OMG..
I couldn't let my husband do without all that time..So back to VA I went..Had surgery and stayed with Mom till I was better..My song at that time was, "We sang in the sunshine..You know we laughed everyday..And, we sang in the sunshine..Then I was on my way..I stayed with you for one year"..Broken hearted again..
I got a job driving a taxi..Easy, no heavy lifting, out and about..Rented a trailer and waited for the year to pass..With the help of friends, especially my closest and best friend, a black woman that seemed to know me better than I did myself..And with the rest rooms, parks, outdoors, and glory holes I got through the year..
Then I knew that I had to get out..Had to move on..Where?.Anywhere..Somewhere new and exciting..That was '71 and 1972 was fast approaching..
8/8/'13..Well I'm finally settled in in Ohio now..Thanks to my friend PatWick..OMG could never had done it without him..He is more help than anyone could ever imagine..Thank you so much PatWick..
When in relationships with men I found myself with different roles that they were bent on finding in one lover..I had to play wife, mother, son, brother, slut, whore, paragon, debating partner, pupil, lover, quick fling, nurse, avenger and equal; and I was prepared to do it..
8/25/2013..If only I had a second chance..
I would further my education..
I would become a computer wiz..
I would learn a second language..
I would build a larger vocabulary..
I would have more balance in my life..
I would read more..
I would work on my public-speaking skills..
