    Dazzle said nothing of the sort concerning the *reason* men drink; blaming women for it is an ingenious way to explain why one drinks, though.
    If one wants to know why one won't debate them, deliberately misrepresting what was said may be one reason why.

    I drink because it goes well with hockey. And football. And pizza. And a bunch of other stuff too, I guess. I don't drink to escape or drown my sorrows though.

      Did your wife make you like hockey and football and the (dreaded) pizza, BOMBO?
      I'd say...probably not.

    "Marilyn Bagley's 'consent' to se xual abuse does not change whether or not a crime was committed." say prosecutors, who also allege Ed Bagley also shared his wife with other men, four of whom have already plead guilty to conspiracy charges.
    Advocates of keeping the law out of the bedroom are concerned this case will make their lifestyles illegal.

    The news story included Ed Bagley meeting his wife-to-be when she was "young". (the story didn't say how old) He trained her to be his little se x slave, and even sold online video of his wife in action.
    While prosecutors realize Marilyn was originally a victim, that she turned herself into a volunteer is so evident, Marilyn herself faces several charges.
    This is what happens when abuse goes unreported to the police. Victims become volunteers, codependant enablers.

    Human trafficking, which is what they are charged with, is against the law; there is MUCH more to the story than the tiny sound bite that you provided.
    While I think their choice of bedroom activity is personally repugnant, if it does not break any laws, and it doesn't impact YOUR life in any way, why the hell should you care??
    It is their CRIMINAL involvement of others that you are completely ignoring, instead focusing on the S M B aspect of it to shock, or whatever.
    And since you ARE such a fierce advocate to curb people's rights, would a move to a country whose views you personally give your stamp of approval off perhaps benefit you?
    Because NO ONE has the right to legislate who or how a person loves, even if it is personally repugnant to one...
    Do the words "Stockholm Syndrome" mean anything to you?
    Oh, why do I even bother?
    You never take my views seriously, anyhow.

    Having said all that, I am not going to comment further unless there is a topic that I care to discuss.
    Later, people.

    Yer wrong, banasy. What this man did with his wife was in fact illegal under Missouri State law. At the heart of this case is a man and a woman having consensual relations in the privacy of their own home, and it being illegal.
    This would be an open-and-shut case had it been tried before sodomy was legalized by an overly gay sypathetic Supreme Court, backed by State lawmakers who are also men who cheat on their wives and women gay/sypathetic.
    Yes. Over the years their bedroom antics spilled-out onto the internet and several other crimes were committed. But make no mistake about it: Since millions of Americans refuse to adjust their lifestyles to help end the wanton spreading of AIDS and the wantings of miillions of abortions ea. year, our Department of Justice is doing it for US.
    Recall just a few short weeks ago, the DoJ shot-down the Supreme Court's opinion that it violates a mans civil liberties to hold his se xual orientation against him in child raype cases. And now the Bagley Case.

      What the heck did I just say?
      That the criminal aspects of the case are against the law; that's why they're CRIMINAL!
      I'm DONE talking to a person who cannot grasp what the heck I'm saying...I. Am. Done.
      I am FOR people's rights.
      You are AGAINST people's rights, if you don't personally agree with them.
      And guess what?
      That's where YOU are wrong.
      Buh bye, Philip.

    And if you were overly sympathetic towords the Word of God, you know that these things were spoken of happening today, prophecies 2000 years old. example:
    "And the males became VIOLENTLY enflamed with LUST for one another...the women working what is obcene in the eyes of the Lord...women with women."
    Violence has no place in ANY bedroom. Violent bedroomers will either conform to the needs of a nation or goto prison.
    Starting with Ed "Master Ed" Bagley and his victim-turned-volunteer wife, marilyn.
