I am in your corner. It's long been known that women are from Venus and men are from Mars. Women who are saying she was not asking for it must have their heads in the sand. I GET that many of today's women consider themselves a force to be reckoned with, that women rule, that women's rights negates any 'old fashioned' ideas....BUT take a poll of the men and I guarantee that 'most' of them will say she's asking for it. Let me ask you this..... would you want YOUR daughter out on the streets looking like that? Would you not fear for her safety? We need to look at this realistically. I know many of you disagree with me and that's ok...I have an opinion just like anyone else.

Did the OP say she was in a restaurant when this girl came in? Maybe the girl was cold, maybe she was hungry, maybe she was doing something she was forced into. Who knows? In my area, a few girls were arrested for prostitution. I think it was discovered that all of them were victims of sex trafficking. One girl spoke very little English. It broke my heart.


And maybe she was from the planet Mars. Silly to make all those excuses and stories for someone who was clearly dressed inappropriately. The simplest explanation is usually the correct one. It's a shame she has no self respect.

DH is crushed. But I don't have a dog in that hunt, so I'm glad you're happy. Cutie pie pup, too.

I’m sorry- no woman asks for it. It doesn’t matter what a woman has on, or doesn’t have on- men are in control of their penises. Stop allowing men to have an excuse for rape.


The ONLY reason to dress like that is to attract attention. Sexual attention, to be specific. Not an excuse for rape, of course, but she was certainly asking for something. Dressing like that has consequences and women shouldn't be excused from having some responsibility in how they dress.

This is the late Brows, our mixed breed terrier from years ago. He is standing on the railing of our deck, maybe 7 or 8 feet above the ground! This goofball dog used to get up on the railing via a built-in seat/table in the corner. The railing was less than 4 inches wide!! He loved looking over the neighbors' fences from his vantage point up high. He'd even go to sleep up there!! He never fell off but in his later years (he lived to be 17!) he stayed on the ground. This brought a smile to my face. He also had the wanderlust to the end of his life. He dug out of the yard one day during a wet spring and came home so muddy I didn't recognize him!

And yes, the decluttering continues. Filled up the back of my Honda CRV the other day with stuff for charity. Today I went through my dresser and half filled a big garbage bag. I have to say it's been hard at times, but worth it. Nice to open a drawer and see it all neat and not overstuffed.

On our recent outing, we are lunch in Schulenburg. We went to a restaurant, sat down, and when the server asked what we wanted to drink, we asked for coffee, because it was cold out. She said, "we're out of coffee." What? So we ordered hot tea. Nope, out of that too. Seriously? So we got up and left. The second place had coffee, and the funniest kids menu ever. And a pretty good chicken fried steak.

We took a day trip to see some more of the painted churches. Many of the early settlers in this area were Czech or German, and having a beautiful place to worship was clearly important to them. It still is, I think. There are guided tours available, and I might do that sometime, but for now, DH and I went on our own. These churches are kind enough to remain open during the day so visitors can share in the beauty. They all have active congregations. I believe these are all Roman Catholic. Catholics do love their statuary, and there was plenty to be seen. Even the Stations of the Cross were beautifully painted. All are in tiny country towns. I hope you enjoy these pictures.
It was a chilly, cloudy day, so the interior is a bit dim, but that ceiling is stunning.

This is St. John the Baptist church in High Hill, just outside of Schulz burg.

This is St. Mary's in Praha. It has recently been restored, including re painting the statues.



This lady was gilding the confessional walls. We had an interesting conversation with her. About the church and its restoration.

This is the churchyard of St. Mary's. it had some unusual markers and was very large. Also on the grounds we're 3 small chapels, dedicated to the 9 men from Praha who lost their lives in WWII. That's a huge toll for a small community such as this.

A plain white clapboard exterior is in contrast with the beauty within. This church is also called St. Mary's.

you are quoting fox news. trump has not passed anything that effects the economy or unemployment. our dear pres. obama's actions getting us out of the bush crash is what is driving the numbers down. get your facts from NPR or PBS not fox!


OMG did you just say "our dear Obama"?? LOL! Well, I think it was your "dear leader" who coined thee term "new normal" in order to explain a stagnant economy and high unemployment.

As long as I got mine, everybody else can go hang! At least that's how I read it.


Well, you read it wrong, then. It's not just my retirement account. It's the retirement account of millions of Americans. It's lower unemployment, the lowest unemployment rate for the black community in decades. You must have missed the part about workers getting more money in their paychecks, and getting bonuses. There are NOW HIRING signs everywhere. That's a good thing for everyone.

Clinton was a sexual predator while IN office. Remember the blue dress? Didn't bother you then. This whole sexual predator thing is your way of trying to avoid the fact that the stock market is up, way up, black unemployment is at its lowest point in 40 years, companies are giving bonuses, and expanding inside the US, and most people will have larger paychecks in February because of the tax cut. People are better off. But go on beating that sorry drum. I'm still laughing. Out loud. On the way to and from the bank. And even in my sleep. Nighty night!

Thought you weren't going to follow this thread anymore. Or answer. Tsk. Who does Clinton blame for being a sexual predator? Maybe it was Monica's fault. LOL! Who does Hillary blame for enabling a sexual predator? Y'all are the ones who said, back in the days of Clinton, "It's just sex." Is Trump perfect? No. Is my bottom line better now than it has been in the last 8, count 'em, 8 years? Damn skippy, it is. So I'm going with that, and still laughing at you, all the way to the bank.

You are soft in the head. I refuse to continue posting in this topic. Or reading your posts or posts of the other righties. Complete waste of time!

ETA: changed wording


You ran out of valid arguments, then. Too bad.

Yes, it seems that way, but trump is just riding Obama'a coat tails.

It doesn't surprise me that it's all about the money with you righties. But that doesn't change the fact that trump is a liar, a racist, and a sexual predator.
But then, that's OK with you, isn't it?


Are you kidding me? Obama blamed Bush for all his losses, and now he's taking credit for things that happened AFTER he left office. What crap. Still laughing at you. Bigly. Bwa ha ha ha ha!

You go girl -- last week in the stock market my portfolio is up over $14,000 and for the quarter more than $150,000.

He is an agent of change and believe me agents of change are the focus of all kinds of hate from systems that don't work. Been there, done that.


Damn skippy! When February rolls around, and people see the difference in their paychecks, it will be even harder for folks to believe the media. We have friends -- he votes dem, she votes repub, both retired but too young for social security, and he said to her recently, "We lived for free this year!" In other words, their gains in the stock market more than made up for expenses, I have heard this from other friends as well -- that the stock market gains more than made up for their losses from Hurricane Harvey!

Laugh all you want. The fact is, the stock market just topped 26,000, unemployment is down, companies are giving out bonuses, and many average folks are better off than they were a year ago. Our retirement accounts have grown. I'm laughing at you, not at Trump.
