I recall my first time with a
condom. I was 14. I went in to buy a packet of condoms at Parchen's pharmacy.
In those days it took a lot of guts to go in a store and ask for that kind of
item because everyone in town knew me and there was no doubt the young lady (I
think her name was Nola) knew what they were for. She was working as an assistant
behind the counter, and she could see that I was really embarrassed by the
whole procedure. She handed me the package and asked if I knew how to wear one. I honestly answered, 'No, not
really.' So she unwrapped the package, took
one out and slipped it over her thumb. She cautioned me to make sure it was on
tight and secure I apparently still looked confused.
So, she looked all around the store to see if it were empty. It was. 'Just a
minute,' she said, and walked me into the back room, unbuttoned her blouse and
removed it. She unhooked her bra and laid it aside. 'Do these excite you?' She
asked. Well, I was so dumb-struck that all
I could do was stand there with my mouth open and nod my head. She then said it
was time to slip the condom on. As I was slipping it on, she dropped her skirt,
removed her panties and lay down on a desk. 'Well, come on', she said, 'We
don't have much time. ' So I climbed on her. It was so
wonderful that, unfortunately, I could no longer hold back and KAPOW, I was
done within a few moments. She looked at me with a bit of a
frown. 'Did you put that condom on?' she asked.
I said, 'sure did,' and
held up my thumb to show her. Then she beat the shit out of me....
Racine Exposed has a great post up today on the "Racine Economic Development Project Opportunities." It's about the agenda that lying John and his friends have regarding where and how they're going to spend big money. (Isn't is disingenuous to say that these dollars aren't coming out of tax dollars, but out of loans? The loans, plus interest, have to be repaid by taxpayers. Duh!) You can read the post here: http://racineexposed.wordpress.com/2013/04/25/survey-says/
The post also contains a quote from a blog by Charles Hugh Smith on http://www.oftwominds.com/. As I read the quote, it moved me. I've decided to reproduce it here just because I like it so much. Thank you, Racine Exposed.
The Eroding Premium on Truth and Trust (April 11, 2013)
The premium in America has shifted from truth to self-serving distortion, and from
trust to manipulation. The premium we place on truth and trustworthiness is self-evident. Truth is
uniquely productive feedback from the real world. Truth (including factual data)
is indispensable, for it alone enables us to correct errors, learn from mistakes
and improve our effectiveness and communication.
We pay a premium for trust because the cost of dishonesty and artifice is steep.
Would you pay more to buy a used car from someone you trust? If you place no premium
on trustworthiness, then you buy the "great deal" used car you found online: oops,
the "new" battery was spray-painted black, the crankcase leaks, the engine
is shot and doesn't pass smog, and the certificate of ownership is forged.
The premium on truth and trust is eroding under the constant onslaught of officially
manipulated data and markets, and a vast array of distortions and propaganda
designed to serve the interests of ruling Elites and key constituencies.
We all know the negative premium placed on fact: telling the truth will get you fired.
And not just in the corporate world: politicians from the President on down
all worship at the altar of the carefully distorted unemployment rate.
The officially sanctioned lying and manipulation are now shameless. Never mind
that millions of people have become statistical phantoms (i.e. not in the workforce) to
generate that low rate, and college graduates
working 3 hours a day (if they're called in at all) are gleefully counted as employed,
as if there is no difference between a full-time job and a marginal one.
President Obama is touting rising auto sales as proof of the "recovery"
(and implicitly, of his wise stewardship), studiously avoiding the fact that
these stupendous auto sales are the result of offering low-interest rate auto
loans to marginal borrowers with near-zero collateral (i.e. skin in the game).
How did blowing a credit bubble and securitizing the debt turn out last time?
Never mind: here we go again. Via
Doug Nolan at Prudent Bear:
Springleaf Finance Corp., the lender to borrowers with poor or limited credit,
sold $604 million of bonds last month backed by personal loans secured by household
goods from furniture to electronics, its first such deal. Demand for riskier
asset-backed bonds has grown as the Federal Reserve holds its benchmark interest
rate at almost zero for a fifth year. Sales of securities linked to subprime auto
loans doubled to $4 billion in January from a year earlier. Manipulation and carefully crafted distortion erode trust, not just in the
individuals employed to repeat the lies but in the institutions that issue them.
The ruthless pursuit of self-interest is now the norm; truth is a terribly
risky disruptor that must be hidden, masked or countered with plausible lies.
As a nation, we're like the obese person who looks at himself in the mirror and sees
his body as normal--the distortion of truth is so complete that we literally no longer
recognize reality. Untruth no longer arouses any moral indignation; we are
either too jaded to care, or our moral compass now spins aimlessly from one manipulation
to the next.
There can be no trust if there is no truth. How can we trust people who
lie to us constantly, who issue one self-serving justification after another for
their own parasitic predation? We cannot. How can we trust institutions whose
credibility now rests on the continuation of lies that are so embedded in
our financial sector and State that their collapse will bring down the entire house-of-cards
debtocracy? We cannot.
The premium in America has shifted from truth to self-serving distortion, and from
trust to manipulation. This spiritual and moral rot will end gloriously,
have no doubt, for the stock market's permanent ascendancy dissolves all other narratives.

When the movie West Side Story came to Racine, my sister went to see it. My father was outraged when he found out. He kept calling it "that gang movie." She tried to tell him that it was based on Romeo and Juliet, but he wouldn't have any of it. To him, it was a film glorifying gangs. That was that. I don't know if he even read anything about the movie.
