The Washington Post: Opinion- Elizabeth Bruenig: 'This Is Not Your Grandfather's Concept of Socialism'

Elizabeth Bruenig, is right that what's called democratic socialism or social democracy, is not let's just say it which is communism. The authoritarian-totalitarian wing of socialism. Britain and Sweden, are not North Korea or Cuba, so let's just put all that into the record and evidence on the table, but that's not my main point here. Where I disagree with Liz Bruenig, has to do with where she argues that democratic socialism/social democracy works well in the United Kingdom and Scandinavia, it would automatically work in America. That if we just replaced our federal form of government, our federal republic and replace it with a unitarian big centralized formed of government with a British or Scandinavian, or Anglo or Nordic welfare state, that would automatically work in America, since to works in Britain and Scandinavia. That is where she's wrong.

It would be like arguing that since America has this liberal capitalist economic system that has produced the largest economy in the world where we're the only country in the world with at least a 100 million people or more with a per-capita income of 50,000 dollars and one of two countries in the world with at least a 100 million people with a per-capita income of 30,000 dollars or more, Japan being the other, that Britain and Scandinavia, should scrap their democratic socialist models and replace it with a decentralized form of government and a liberal capitalist system, where the people there would have a lot of responsibility, but freedom as well to manage their economic and personal affairs.

We're not a wealthy country, or a wealthy big country, a wealthy large country, we're a wealthy huge country. Whatever you want to say about China, America's per-capita income and living standards are still about eight times greater than China's. Even when China's economy passes America's as the largest in the world, China will still be a developing country where the only people who are doing well in China economically are people who live in their biggest cities, with everyone else in the country and that would be hundreds of millions of people in China living under third-world living conditions.

A big part of the discussion that Democratic Socialists like Senator Bernie Sanders and his followers in and outside of government in America like to leave out or just leave out whether they're aware of it or not, is that the countries they like to point to as having high living standards under a democratic socialist system, is with Sweden, Norway, and Finland, have very small populations. 5-10 million, with large pieces of land. Sweden and Finland, are about the size of Turkey physically with a about 1-10th the population. Turkey is a large country with about 75 million people, similar to Iran. And Nordic countries are all large energy producers, oil and gas. Scandinavia, has a democratic socialist economic system, because they can afford it. Lots of money with very people to take care of. Very similar to how the Saudi Kingdom operates in Arabia.

So, if Democratic Socialists really want to scrap the American form of government with our federal system and replace it with a democratic socialist unitarian form of government with a socialist welfare state, maybe they should be pushing to get America off of foreign energy all together and making us completely energy independent. Getting us off foreign oil and gas altogether and producing American alternative energy like solar, but also more American traditional energy like nuclear, oil and gas. Bringing in the financial resources that it would take to fund this big socialist welfare state without having to tax Americans and American businesses to the point that it would make it very difficult to work or run a business in America, because of all the taxes that we would have to pay for Welfare.

Thames TV: Looks Familiar With Denis Norden- Diana Dors, Larry Grayson & Farley Granger: From 1982

Speaking of Hollywood parties which is what they're talking about here, there was a famous Hollywood party involving Diana Dors and her then husband Dennis Hamilton, who sort of acted as Diana's agent back in the 1950s. Diana Dors and actor Rod Steiger, worked in the Hollywood movie The Unholy Wife from 1956 and her husband Dennis and Teasy-Weasy Raymond ( no joke, that's the real name ) put together a launch party for The Unholy Wife at Raymond's Hollywood home in 1956. A lot of great Hollywood people were there including Doris Day, Lana Turner, Zsa Zsa Gabor, Ginger Rogers, and many others, as well as Diana Dors who was just getting her start in Hollywood.

It was very crowded around the pool and Diana and her husband and others, got pushed in the pool. Hamilton not being the ready for prime-time player that he was, the man wasn't even a Hollywood agent and was sort of Hollywood's version of an assistant tennis pro who survived only on his ability to get wealthy women like Diana to help him and take care of him. The man was a career amateur who thought more of himself than he ever was, gets up out of the pool and decks a photographer that was covering this scene. Hamilton and his adorable gorgeous wife Diana, naturally are kicked out of the party and by all intents and purposes are kicked out of Hollywood.

Source: IOffer- English Muffin Diana Dors, this is your life
But Diana goes back to England and is pretty much never heard from again in Hollywood, which was fine with her but a huge loss for the American movie and entertainment audience that would've loved to have her working her for the next 30 plus years. Because she really was a great entertainer and not just great to look at. A helluva actress, who was very funny and was a very good singer as well, but other than Richard Dawson had a bad habit of marrying men who couldn't take care of themselves and were very needy and lacking in ability and needed her to take care of them.

Who knows, had Diana left her husband with a babysitter and went to the party by herself that night, that scene with her and others getting dumped in the pool accidentally might have still happened, the difference being that Diana was a pro and grownup ( unlike her husband Dennis Hamilton ) and would've handled it professionally and got out of the water and there would've been people there to help her dry off and sent to a bedroom to change and everything else and life would've moved on and perhaps Diana Dors has a great career in Hollywood, instead of a very short but memorable career. But this is one of those things that we;ll just never know.

Leathered Life: Sarah and The Girls- Sexy Blonde in Black Leather Jeans

The first 10-20 seconds of this video with the sexy, baby-faced blonde, is the only part of this video that I'm interested. Gorgeous, sexy, baby-face blonde, in these tight Miss Sixty leather jeans, with her big round butt almost looking she's sticking her big bootie into the camera and asking the cameraman ( or woman ) to touch her big butt or something. And then they show a bunch on women in leather leggings, which I'm just not into.

Source: Leathered Life- Model Sarah 
Similar to denim when it comes to leather pants on women, I'm only interested in jeans. Not leggings or trousers. Leather leggings or denim leggings, look like something women would wear to the gym. But if you really want to know what a woman's legs look like and what kind of body she has, check her out in skin-tight jeans whether they're denim or in this sexy blonde's case's Miss Sixty black leather jeans, with a tank top and boots, who is very proud of her body and perhaps even wants people to check her out.

The Express Online: Raquel Welch- Through The Years

Source: The Express Online- Red Hot Raquel Welch-
Source: The New Democrat

Every generation at least in Hollywood, has that one woman and perhaps man as well, that the rest of that generation is defined by and becomes the standard for how that generation is judged. And I'm talking both in a physical as well as professional sense. Rita Hayworth, who was not only perhaps the best and most famous actress, as well as most popular, and perhaps best look actress of the World War II Generation. Marilyn Monroe, is certainly the most popular and famous actress in the Silent Generation. But to me at least Sophia Loren is not only better looking than Marilyn, hotter, sexier, grown up and doesn't come off as a little girl both as fas as her face, but personality as well. But that's me.

Source: Wooden Boat- Red Hot Raquel Welch 
Raquel Welch born in 1940, if you put her in the Baby Boom because she was born in the 1940s at the start of World War II, even though she doesn't officially qualify as a Baby Boomer ( according to the Census Bureau ) I believe would have that title for the Baby Boomers. As the best looking actress of that generation. Every generation in Hollywood at least has that one actress that every other actress is judged by. Both in a physical, as well as a professional sense. How the look and how good of an actress that they are.

Source: Got Celeb- Hollywood Goddess Raquel Welch 
Raquel Welch is certainly not the best actress of either the Silent Generation or the Baby Boom. But who from either generation is better looking than Raquel? What woman from either generation is hotter, cuter, and sexier, than Raquel. There women who are cuter than Raquel. There women who are sexier than Raquel. But hotter? Perhaps Sophia Loren, but anyone else? When I think of red hot, Raquel Welch is at or near the top of the list. I also think of women from her era like Jill St. John, Stefanie Powers, Mariah Carey from today. These hot, gorgeous, sexy redheads, who are also all tall, who are also all baby-face adorable. So cute to the point that you could just focus on who cute they are. And if they weren't also gorgeous and sexy, they would all be too cute.

Source: Daily Mail- Hollywood Goddess Raquel Welch 
You look at Raquel Welch from 1966, 1970, 1978, 1985, the early 1990s, mid and late 1990s, at any point in the 21st Century and what in each of these years and eras there are a few things about her that are always there and still there. She's not just gorgeous, but hot. She's not just cute, but adorable and baby-face adorable and still is. And she's very sexy and has a great body in each period as well.

There are actresses that come out of nowhere and perhaps appear in a commercial or reality TV program, who suddenly become famous, but after their first 2-3 movies or TV shows flop, or or they end up in jail or on rehab,someone else who is more popular at the time comes along, the first pop star is never seen or heard from again. Or comes back 10 years later with a new look and persona. And there are actresses who stand the test of time who make a real life for themselves with all the ups and downs of any real life for anyone who has actually lived in life and makes a great career for themselves and is as beautiful today as they were fifty years ago.

Raquel Welch is a Hollywood Goddess, because she has lived a real life and made the best of it for herself and the people who care about her and depend on her. We're not just talking about a great actress, but a great comedic actress, satirist, comedian even, who has used her incredible sex appeal and physicality to make fun of people who only judge her by her physical appearance. As well as someone with her own successful fashion line and has become a successful fashion designer and bestselling author as well. Raquel Welch, the Hollywood starlet who is also a star, because she's had one of the best careers as a Hollywood actress ever.

KLOS Radio: News Theater- Heidi Sits on Erik's Face: Katja Sitting

Source: Aga Clip- Heidi on Erik's face-
Source: Action

I didn't get on YouTube at all until early 2009 when I finally got my first laptop computer ( I know, I was late to the dance ) because I wanted to get into blogging and finally created my own YouTube channel. Which I only use to view YouTube videos and still haven't uploaded my own video yet. And I only created my own YouTube channel because I wanted to comment on a video and they told me I had to create my own channel to do that. The whole process took like two minutes and I didn't think anything of it until I realized I had my own YouTube channel which showed my latest YouTube activity and people replying to my comments. I was very new to the who whole social media scene to begin with.

Source: Twitter via Pacesetting Girls- Svenja, on her guy
Anyway to make a long story short or actually turn a book into a few sentences, I started searching online and came across what someone called Katja videos. JeansSitting, which are basically soft to medium porn videos of these very beautiful and a lot of cases gorgeous and yet baby-face women, with beautiful bodies and they're all wearing these skin-tight jeans that are so tight with the women's bodies being so tight that if you whipped them in the legs or butt while they're wearing these skin-tight jeans, they might not notice it. These denim jeans for the most part and in some cases skin-tight leather jeans that Jim Morrison or Joan Jett would be proud of, are so tight they almost look bulletproof. And all these women are also wearing tight long leather boots as well. And they would be wearing either very tight short t-shirts, tank-tops, and in some cases corsages as well.

Source: JeansSitting- Svenja, on her guy
So, to get to what this is about, there was or there might still be an adult entertainment website called JeansSitting. com and they might still be in business, but they no longer seem to be on either YouTube or Facebook and I don't believe I've ever seen them on Twitter or Google+ either. Perhaps Tumblr, which seems to be the capital of porn websites, which is not a joke or even a jab, but there's a lot of porn on Tumblr. And they would tape and photographed there models in the skin-tight outfits that I just mentioned, doing what they called jeans sitting, which is a woman sitting on a man and even a man's face, with the beautiful tight strong body, in their skin-tight denim and in some cases leather jeans.

Source: Facebook- TDLJSW- Svenja, on her guy
You would see these woman squatting on a man's body and even face lost as if she's going to the bathroom, but doesn't got that far. You would see these strong women who would completely dominate these young men and of course they're play acting, but that's exactly what they're doing and it's very sexy even in adult entertainment or porn form. These women would be acting as dominatrix's , who would completely dominate these men physically not by beating them up, but having them in complete submission. Sort of how third-world dictatorships, might torture their prisoners, but these guys are never in any danger and if anything like what these women are doing to them.

Source: Jeans Sitting- Svenja, on her guy
Speaking personally here, a woman who looks like this and is dressed like this, could dominate me like this anytime she wants. Even better if my girlfriend was doing this to me, so I wouldn't have to explain it to her or justify it. Just as long as she doesn't fart on my face which would be the las straw. She farts on my face or anywhere else on my body and I would have to say that's the straw or last anything else that you want to use. I don't care what's she wearing when she farts on my. But in all seriousness. this is about as sexy as any activity I've ever seen. And the women and men who perform in these videos are completely dressed the whole time.

Mariah Carey: Make it Happen- Tribute To The NHL 2018 Stanley Cup Champion Washington Capitals

Source: ISportsWeb- Your 2018 NHL Stanley Cup Champion Washington Capitals-
Source: The New Democrat

I was in eighth grade and for you non-math and school wizards that would be junior high back in 1990 when Mariah Carey first broke onto the scene and I still hadn't heard of her at that point. It wasn't until a year later ( when I was a freshman in high school, which would be ninth grade ) when I first saw her video Someday that I actually heard of her and thought she has a great voice and is also great looking and everything else and started becoming a big fan of her.

Source: Wikipedia- Mariah Carey's Make it Happen music video 
When I think of the voice of my generation and I'm now 42 years old and at the tail end of Generation X, I only think of two people. Whitney Houston, ( who tragically died at 48 in 2012, RIP ) and Mariah Carey who if anything is now more popular at the age of 48 today then she was even 20 years ago. And if you look and listen to her, what has she missed?
Source: Mari Angels- Lyrics for Mariah Carey's Make it Happen 
Nothing, she might be curvier now but in a good way. Not saying she's even cuter now, but has she lost anything in that department? She's still this hot, sexy, baby-face adorable goddess, who can still come off as a kid with those big beautiful adorable eyes, cheeks, and smile, and yet she still has not a great voice, but she still has the voice. Which is beyond great, because she has the voice that other singers are measured to. Are you as good as Mariah Carey or not.

And maybe Beyonce Knowles will replace her at some point and not be the voice of Generation X, because's she's not a Gen-Xer, but be not just the voice of her generation but the voice that everyone is measured by regardless of age and generation. Sort of how Frank Sinatra is viewed as the voice at least for male singers regardless of their age and what generation they're from.

I mention all this to just completely waste your time. Actually, there's a more substantive reason for that which goes to Make it Happen from Mariah Carey which now 26 years later and yes I was still in high school when it came out is still a great inspirational song. A great spiritual or even religious song as well and if there were more preachers who talked this way and chose to inspire people, instead of divide people based on lifestyle and sexuality, I might attend church now and then, because I would really get something out of even though I'm Agnostic.

Source: Mariah Carey

"If you believe in yourself enough

And know what you want

You're gonna make it happen

(Make it happen)

And if you get down on your knees at night

And pray to the Lord

He's gonna make it happen

(Make it happen)

You're gonna make it happen, oh yeah

I know life can be so tough

And you feel like giving up

But you must be strong

Baby just hold on

You'll never…"

Again, I'm Agnostic so I don't believe in getting on my knees and praying to whatever Lord there may or not be, but the basic message of this song is right. That if you believe in yourself enough and know what you want, you're going to make it happen. It's obviously not that simple and you need to have more than self-confidence because your self-confidence has to be justifiable. You have to be as good as you believe you are when you're confident and not just believe in yourself, but know that you're good at what you do and then execute those skills to accomplish your goals.

As well as know what you're up against and what they're capable of and what they might do to try to stop you. And then be at your best when you have to be in order to accomplish your goals. Be as good as you possibly can be and not just believe in yourself, but know yourself as well as possible and then execute those skills when the time comes.

And yes this is about the 2018 NHL Stanley Cup Champion Capitals and no, I'm not a sportswriter and don't have beat, so take this piece about Capitals and NHL hockey in general for what it's worth. But pre-2018 Stanley Cup Playoffs, the Capitals didn't make it happen. This is a club that every season under Barry Trotz which now goes back to the 2015 season, had exceptions of winning the Stanley Cup. Which at any point would've been their first Stanley Cup ever. This for a franchise that has won just one conference championship ( 1998 ) and played in one Stanley Cups Finals, also in 1998. And until 2018 have even only played in two conference finals and yet a good season for the Capitals during the last ten years or so was to get to the 2nd round of the playoffs which would be semifinals.

Source: NBC Sports- Alex Ovechkin & Nick Backstrom 
The Capitals would traditionally enter the Stanley Cup Playoffs at least as the favorite to win the Eastern Conference Finals, or at least get there and for several seasons to win the Stanley Cup Finals and yet pre-Barry Trotz would generally be eliminated in the quarterfinals. ( The 1st round ) Because again they didn't make it happen, because they were either overconfidence or overrated. They would get bad goaltending when they needed good goaltending the most. Or their offense would simply not show up and would get shut out during an elimination game. Which happened to them both to the Pittsburgh Penguins and Tampa Lightning in the last few years during the playoffs.

The 2018 NHL season was different for the Capitals. They were no longer expected to win it all and probably for several reasons. They hadn't done it yet or even advance to the Eastern Conference Finals with the current crew and head coach. They were getting older and the Penguins and Lightning were still there to beat them.

Like I said, 2018 was different for the Capitals than 2015-17 when they were eliminated in the semifinals in each season by either Pittsburgh or Tampa. They played the Penguins in the 2nd round and the Lightning in the EC Finals and beat both clubs. Eliminated the Penguins in six games, instead of losing in seven or being swept. They beat the Lightning in seven games, including winning the final two games by shutouts. And then beat the Las Vegas Golden Knights ( a 2018 NHL expansion team ) in five games where really only two of those games were close. The first and last game and the Capitals could've easily won the first game as well and swept Las Vegas.

The 2018 Capitals not only believed in themselves and knew what they want, but knew how to get what they want. To quote the former great pro wrestler Ric Flair, to be the man, you have to beat the man. Which means you have to become the man and not just be your best when it matters most , but be better than your opposition when it matters most. Be better than the man when it matters the most. Winning a playoff game here or there and even playing your best in those games, is certainly and accomplishment and something to feel good about. But it means nothing if you don't even show up when it matters the most. When you're playing an elimination game and not just an elimination game, but a championship elimination game.

The Capitals could've lost the next two games against Las Vegas and still have won the Stanley Cup, but had the Cup in their sights and simply just took it by winning game 5 and beating the Golden Knights for the 4th straight time in that series. They made it happen by being their best when it mattered the most which was good enough to win the 2018 Stanley Cup Finals. And head Barry Trotz and the whole Washington Capitals organization, deserves a lot of credit for that.

Bircan Golgecen: Happy Days- She Devils, 1979

Source: Bircan Golgecen- She Devil-
Source: Action

I was never a fan of the show Happy Days and I always thought it was pretty cheesy, except for Fonzi ( played by Henry Winkler ) and maybe that's because the show takes place in 1950s Midwest America before America looked like America does today with all the ethnic and racial diversity. Even though the show and series was made and shown in the 1970s when America did look and sound much different, than it did even 10, 15, 20 years ago. Or perhaps it just had a lot of cheesy writing. But I do like the She Devils episode and for multiple reasons.

Source: Julien's Live- She Devils 
This is a very funny episode and for multiple reasons. You got guys who are playing nerds here who other than maybe the dark hair guy, all look like they would struggle to benchpress their own pillow, who are getting pushed around ( to put it mildly ) by a female outlaw biker gang. Who are very tough and look like perhaps they could've played professional football ( and not just their leader ) and yet they're all beautiful, very cute even, and also very sexy. With Richie ( played by Ron Howard ) the leader of the nerds ) trying to act tough and stand up against a bunch a women. Imagine that, American men feeling physically threatened by women and they're all straight.
Source: The Saleroom- She Devils 
This show is not about a dykish group of lesbian outlaw bikers, who hate men and see the guys as easy targets and go after them. They're does seem to be a radical feminist vibe to this show, but it's about a straight female outlaw biker gang, picking on guys who look like chess club geeks and get paid to do the high school or college football team's homework every night. Computer geeks who look like they go to the library for actual fun and not just research. Which is what most Americans use libraries for or to check out a book that they're not sure about buying.

Source: The Golden Closet- She Devils 
And then there's another reason why I like this show which is more important. Not just a female biker gang or a female outlaw biker gang, or just a pretty or even cute female biker gang, or s sexy female biker gang. But a female outlaw biker gang with all of those features who are all leathered up. And in some cases wearing black leather motorcycle jackets with tight blue denim jeans and black leather boots. But with most of the women all leathered up. Black leather motorcycle jackets, skin-tight black leather jeans, and black leather boots. All of the women having beautiful tight bodies and kicking ass in these outfits as well.

Source: The Golden Closet- She Devils 
So you have a very funny episode here with a feminist outlaw biker gang, who feel the need to get back at these guys who they see as nerds, because one of them ( played by Scott Bao, before he became a Donald Trump loyalist ) somehow wronged one of the members of the gang. Perhaps you could say screwed, but that can be interpreted in multiple ways here, but they believe he hurt their gang member in someway. And see these nerds with Chachi ( played by Scott Bao ) who is with them, as their opportunity to get back at Chachi.

Source: The Golden Closet- She Devils 
And you also have a female outlaw biker gang with the characteristics that I've already mentioned, who are also very attractive and very sexy. Sort of reminds me of those outlaw biker movies from the late 1960s and early 1970s, that all had at least one attractive sexy woman in and generally multiple very attractive women in like the Glory Stompers from 1967 or go up to the 1980s with Easy Wheels from 1989. But this show was an episode from a TV series and not a movie. And yet the footage is just as good, if not better and the comes out in 1979 where you weren't seeing many if any female outlaw gangs on TV at least, or anywhere else. This is a very good show.
