Re: If Women Ran The Country

I think you folks have missed the point.

Women do run the country.

And I have my wife's permission to say that.

Re: If Women Ran The Country

I'm surprised that nobody's brought up the old joke about how we'd be going to war every 28 days! <ducking>

Hmmm, wonder why I'm single? :

Re: If Women Ran The Country--BOYS: DONT LOOK YOU WILL BE SORRY

Since this is a pointless thread. . . .

I read* (IIRC in the WSJ) that a birth control pill coming on the market soon will be a pill you take every day, so no more periods.*

In fact, the few days off for current birth control pills was never necessary, it was just to get women to think that the pill didn't really interfer with their normal cycles.* Turns out that they didn't tell us that the bleeding on the days off was withdrawl from pill bleeding, not the natural shedding of the uterus lining.*

Men!


EDIT: It looks like you are stuck with 4 a year: http://www.cnn.com/2003/HEALTH/09/04/new.birth.control/

I vote for the Dixie Chicks.

Pres, V Pres, and Sec of State.

We'd be a cool country with three honky tonk women runnin us and just think, Dixie Chicks.

Class personified.

They probably wouldn't be much worse than current or past executives/cabinets.

Though I'd pick the pussycat dolls over the dixie chicks.

Re: If Women Ran The Country

the g-string-karin_1 part or the "viewed 13 times" part?

I'd love to be a fly on your wall:
"What's wrong, couldn't quite see her clearly the first 12 times?"

Re: If Women Ran The Country

The word "Dixie" gives me the hives, sickens me and otherwise reveals the IQ of those using it.

I hate Dixie as a word.

Damn, how stupid can a person be.

Martha, Jay Leno made reference to this a couple of nights ago.* His observation:

"And you thought we couldn't win the war on terror."
