Makes sense to have a political sub-forum

Can we have a sub forum for submissives?

The Day the Penis asked for a Raise

I, the Penis, hereby request a raise in salary for the following reasons:

I do physical labor.

I work at great depths.

I plunge headfirst into everything I do.

I do not get weekends or public holidays off.

I work in a damp environment.

I work in a dark workplace that has poor ventilation.

I work in high temperatures.

My work exposes me to contagious diseases.


Sincerely,

P. Niss



The Response

Dear Penis:

After assessing your request, and considering the arguments you have raised, the administration rejects your request for the following reasons:

You do not work 8 hours straight.

You fall asleep after brief work periods.

You do not always follow the orders of the management team. You do not stay in your designated area and are often seen visiting other locations.

You do not take initiative - you need to be pressured and stimulated in order to start working.

You leave the workplace rather messy at the end of your shift.

You don't always observe necessary safety regulations, such as wearing the correct protective clothing.

You will retire well before you are 65.

You are unable to work double shifts.

You sometimes leave your designated work area before you have completed the assigned task.

And if that were not all, you have been seen constantly entering and exiting the workplace carrying two suspicious-looking bags.

Sincerely,

V. Gina

whinging about political threads hardly qualifies me to be related to jay (thank god), OT is off topic, off topic does not equal politics and nothing but politics, especially US politics...

you need to get out into the world more, the view you have of America is not the view shared by many others around the rest of the world. Let me be the first to break this to you gently, America is already viewed as inferior in many respects by many nations in the world - some with equal military power...

Equal military power? Don't kid yourself, not today, not on this planet. Unless you're just talking launch all the nukes, then there's one, in a manner of speaking.

Yes, well I was referring to nukes - while we have Russia saber rattling around, let's not forget China's quiet little position...

I wouldn't overrate China militarily. China would have a hard time holding their own (offensively rather than defensively) against other regional players, including Taiwan and S. Korea. And while no one (outside of China) knows with certainty, I would imagine that China's nuke capability is far less than that of Israel, let alone the U.S. or Russia.

GS, I am not taking sides on this subject but if I remember correctly America got its butt kicked in Vietnam mainly because the Chinese sided with the north.

In any fight, never underestimate your oponent no matter how big or small he may be.

I have to agree that America is getting a bad name and that is sad to see.

ERIC.
