Poor Joe has been dealt a lemon. He tries to make lemonade with mixed reviews! Not enough apology, too much apology, didn’t say I’m sorry, too much sugar, he said I’m sorry but for the wrong reason….
I’ll just jump into this Joe Biden fray. I am not a Joe Biden fan; in fact, I think he gained his fame by being a go-fer. He got where he is by being a “yes” man and saying dopey things that no body took seriously (his being a Democrat and all that). His standing up to defend the USA is not my hope. Be like sending a chicken to the fox den. After she lays the egg all negotiations are over.
However… Out of the woodwork come the ladies who have “felt uncomfortable” with his hand-on approach.
Now let me state I would not have liked it! It is far to “hands on” for me. But someone should have told the poor guy forty or fifty years ago, “keep your hands to yourself, Buddy.” Poor ole Joe just thought he was spreading a bit of love around – you know the kind “let’s make love, not war.” It did not dawn on him that some people are not smitten with “handsome, fame, and power” deigning to whisper in their ear making them “queen for the day” with a snuggle to the neck and a kiss on the head. The Duke and the Commoner.
Now back to the ladies (?). So he made you “uncomfortable?” I remember being uncomfortable one time in high school when a “juvie” stuck a porn picture in front of my face, in class. I couldn’t have made a scene even if I would have. Of course, I would not.
Here is where the feminists are right. I should have stood up, asked the teacher permission to go to the principal to handle a personal emergency. I bet “juvie” would have stewed in his own pot for a bit!
However, I think it would have been wrong to bring it up even a year later – let alone ten, twenty, thirty… People change! Even onery ones sometimes turn out to be quite nice gentlemen! Poor Joe.
I am fed up with the women who seemingly (according to them) suffer in silence until the perfect day of revenge, which is always when the political cause needs them. If their male victim is a Democrat he will likely survive – notice how quickly Virginia’s scandal has disappeared. If he is a Republican – rarely. Where, by the way, is Judge Roy Miller, a Republican judged guilty because of political expediency? The deciding vote is generally cast by the news media whose reputation for truth and fairness is not notable!
Women, if you are hurting from unjust treatment in the past, go tell somebody today! Don’t wait for the time someone might be willing to buy your story from you. Quite likely you, like I, have put it in your “stupidity” file, forgiven the creep, and lived to see the day he has matured and contributed something good to the world. Most of you are not holding out for “Is The Price Right.”
Now back to uncomfortable. A good number of you women over fifteen years of age know you are making a guy “uncomfortable” when you are wearing high-lift- bras with cut-to-the-navel necklines. You finally understand your biology teacher, you enjoy having bait on the hook, and you enjoy watching the worm squirm.
Imagine this scenario: You, a woman, have been years now doing good, making wise choices, taking responsibility, and paying your own bills. Now you have been selected as a nominee as first woman Mayor of your small city! Looking good. However, one of those guys you made “uncomfortable” when you were seventeen, comes out of the closet and charges you with making him uncomfortable. Come on now, who’s the victim! Who gets sneered at? Honest, now, do you want equality?
Well, at least you will have the media on your side seeing as how you are “woman” – a diversity victim! Poor Joe, no diversity. Even “dopes” are not recognized as a diversity group.
