Hard truths

There are women who will have sex, pretend or otherwise, with anyone they consider even a minor celebrity. And if those women engage with that man, and indulge in sexual activity with him, he becomes a sexual predator and a misogynist. He is now an outcast, unsuitable for human company.

I have so much trouble keeping the rules straight!

Do you fucking believe that?

[T]he need for smart investments that help America win the future must be balanced with the need to control spending and reduce the deficit.
