6) If husbands want more sex, women should do everything they can to give it to them. Focus on the Family’s marriage counselor Juli Slattery is blunt about: Married men need sex, and so wives who aren’t providing enough need to step up. While she claims she isn’t trying to guilt trip women into having more sex, she argues that sex is a physical, emotional, spiritual, and relational need men have. (Though apparently not when they’re single and can’t even fill this need on their own time.) “You cannot love him as a husband but reject him sexually,” she says, suggesting that regardless of the hold-up, women whose husbands want sex more need to find a way to provide it.
7) However, if wives want more sex, they should learn to go without. Slattery has very different advice for wives whose problem is that they want to get laid more, but have unwilling husbands. While you should move heaven and earth to drum up more desire for a husband who wants more sex, if you’re the undersexed one, you’re instructed to tell yourself “friendship, seasoned love, and shared history are often enough to maintain a marriage in which sex is no longer possible”. Men who want more sex are entitled to wives who try to provide it, women who aren’t getting any are told to be happy with “forms of physical affection that don’t involve the pressure of sexual intercourse, such as back rubs, holding hands, playful touching, and hugging”.
Anyway, here’s my thesis:
Raiders of the Lost Ark is not an action-adventure movie about an archaeologist who plays by his own rules and saves the day. Instead, the film is an exploration of Marion Ravenwood’s crippling drug addiction. An addiction that was born from her unhealthy relationship and continued association with Indiana Jones.
Is it true? Who cares. Can I prove it? Well, not proof in the sense of research or evidence — proof only so far as crafting an internally consistent argument, relying solely upon the clues within the movie.
… sorry about the rampant disregard for spell checking or proper grammar, the irony of it being Nazi’s with grammar issues is not lost on me.
I won’t admit to how many of the things mentioned in this video I used (or was guilty of)
Political discourse in America has reached levels of douchebaggery previously only theorized about but never observed, like conversational dark matter. We’re in a whole new world of hating people based solely on their opinions on a few key issues, and since this is unexplored territory, our conversations about politics are usually only a couple notches beyond the “hold your breath until the other person agrees with you and/or you die” technique.

Zounds! Kenny Bunk has found the method to Obama’s madness!
BTW, for what it’s worth, I am becoming convinced that the key to “understanding” the Obama Phenomenon is Deconstruction Philosophy, Dadaism
Golub’s role models in the field are Fox News’s Greg Gutfield (“the godfather of all of us”) and Rush Limbaugh (“hilarious … genuinely funny”). Golub admires Stephen Colbert, but his Comedy Central pal, Jon Stewart, not so much.
“He’s a mean-spirited bully,” said Golub. “I think he takes cheap shots. I think his entire act is ‘conservatives are evil.’ I don’t think it’s hip and the best comedians, they don’t need to curse. … Jon Stewart, every night he thinks his idea of being hip and edgy is the same tired, ‘Bush lied, Sarah Palin is dumb, Michele Bachmann is evil.’ It’s just boring.’ Colbert manages to do it in a way that, unlike Bill Maher and Jon Stewart, is not so mean-spirited, because comedy should not be destructive.”
I confess that I had to wiki “Greg Gutfield” and now that I see the photo and read the words I say, “Oh yeah, that guy”. And will again, shortly forget who he is exactly.
Then, at one point in the video he says John Stewart said, “Hey Bernie, F you” when making a point regarding one of John Stewart’s hits on Bernard Goldberg of Fox News. I have to confess that, all though I knew a little more about Goldberg I had to wiki him as well. Now, as far as ol’ Bernie goes, it all makes sense; he’s an old guy, sports caster who writes books about “liberal elites” (laying the tracks for Sarah a few years before her meteoric rise and subsequent Greek-tragedy like fall, “Flying too close to the sun” and all that) and makes all the old and or out-of-touch people who watch Faux News, feel like they aren’t. All you have to say to Bernie and people like him is “Hey, F you” as they are self parodies.
I think that this is a metaphor for “modern conservatism” and the Republican Party; “Humor is a whift of shit” and if you are not smart enough to “get it” you can’t really be, or appreciate funny. And that goes for most things in everyday reality as well, you have to be at least 1/2 level smarter than the normal everyday happenings or “you just don’t get it”.

A jaunty pick-me-up of musical comedy.
This is an a cappella medley (4 parts) of some of my favorite (or at least I’ve watched a lot of episodes) television shows. To show you my tastes. I think every one of them is either science fiction or a comedy.
This has the normal pitch correction faire, but everything is straight from my voice (and only four parts)
I know, I said “guy” instead of “face.”
Also, please don’t leave suggestions or “why didn’t I include [your favorite show]?”
