Romantic Pornography

Sunday, June 30th, 2013

Most women like some sort of porn. It’s not necessarily images from magazines nor on the internet or found in adult shops. It’s rarely anything like mens porn.  Womens porn is softer, more subtle, and yes – sorry guys – often romantic.  Rarely does it have animals or extras or dildoes or ropes and chains.

This woman’s site has put up dozens of sexually-oriented pictures and asked women to click on those they like.  Those numbers are lightly flashed on the photos to give you an idea of how many women like each one.

It’s not scientific nor surprising but it’s a good reminder for men that their fantasies may best be left in their heads.

English Spoken Here

Sunday, June 30th, 2013

I love my Hispanic friends and their beautiful families and culture. I  would also love it if they learned English and spoke it to their children exclusively.  Language is the glue that binds together a country of many different nationalities.  We may not look the same, listen to the same music, nor eat the same foods – but if we can’t easily communicate with each other using a common language, how can we stand together as a nation?

My grandparents knew this when they came to America at the turn of the last century.  They learned English to get into schools, apply for jobs, and become citizens.  They were very proud when they learned how to speak English well.

Today in America we have many sophisticated means of teaching children our language.  We have PBS television, the internet, and talking games that could make it fun to learn the language.  We have excellent teachers and two and a half months of empty schools that could be devoted to preschool English lessons.

Today US Voter Registration forms come in 11-different languages!  How can someone make an intelligent election decision if they can’t speak English?  Or is that the point?

I hope my Latino friends know this idea is not an insult to their language or culture.  Instead it is a welcoming hand that says, “We respect our differences but we ask you join us to form a stronger America.  How may we help you get onboard?”
