    Sage advice here. Ah, but for COVID-19 . . .

    Honestly, I think the thing that amazes me the most, is what seems to be a resurgence in men that don’t go down on women. In fact, I bet there’s a man reading these words right now that’d sooner lick a bunghole that put tongue on clitoris.

    Or the number of women that tell me they’d just as soon men stop trying, because they won’t listen.

    This is the wrong answer, America.

    We are living in the age of the bare muff. For you to forsake this tasty and satisfying meal now, of all times, is just goddamn tragic.

    Women, be firm but easy with your men. They are often both rather delicate and not very bright.

    Men, listen to your ladies. Just this once. I promise, it’ll only make you more heterosexual and masculine, and totally not the opposite, no matter what some popular rap DJ’s have to say.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

    Q: Without appealing to emotion or using ad hominem attacks, how can I convince conservatives that gun regulation is a good thing?

    A: If by “gun regulation,” you mean more restrictions upon those of us who own firearms for the sake of “saving lives,” “stopping crime,” or whatever other buzz-phrase du jour, well, you can’t convince any principled conservatives (or principled libertarians such as myself, for that matter) that your proposed “gun regulation(s)” are anything resembling a good deal.

    Why is that?

    Because We The Conservatives and Libertarians recognize that We are NOT the problem in any way, shape, or form.

    There are anywhere to 330,000,000 million to 1,000,000,000 firearms in American hands, depending upon who you ask. About .0001 (0.01 %) of those firearms are used by people to kill themselves or others.

    So what you’re saying is that because of ONE TEN THOUSANDTH of the American people, the rest of us simply must surrender liberty and property upon your demand, so that you can have your warm-fuzzy feel-good moment where you “got something done” and “made a difference” ?

    NO, THANKS

    Feel free to shove that notion BACK where the sun doesn’t shine.
