    Red face I adored the last major allocution of Michelle Obama! And you?

    Did you had a chance to look at it?
    (nota bene: that's not the political parts of it that marvelled me so much)
    (For the record, she reacted so well about one of the candidate-wanna-be-president who indulged in sex assaults and degrading women below "things")


    I just did yesterday! Magnific statements about equality of chance, of respect of women from men, and to feel all concerned and work together to stop that mean sexism,
    and this all around the world, as it is her usual commitment.


    Here's the link: New Hamshire's Michelle Obama speech

    What do you think of that part of her speech?

    you mean this part?

    the men that you and I know?... don't treat women this way... they are loving fathers who are sickened by the thought of their daughters being exposed to this kind of vicious language

    well she should probably clarify what she exactly means by "loving"


    Obama has authorized 506 strikes that have killed 3,040 terrorists and 391 civilians

    I'm not american, and I stay kind of away of wars news. Because that will put me in a strong depression to know all the details.
    I know there has been a lots of atrocities that ALL Americans leaders decided to make all around the world since ages where they want to steal the wealth of other countries by force.

    Sorry PopeDover, that's not the subject of my thread, you just jump on the "political/war side" and this post isn't about the political side of Michelle Obama's speech.

    I am talking precisely about her call to fight mysoginistic & bullying & violence behaviors against women.

    I thought she expressed it so well, and with heart. That's what marvelled me. I'm sensible to energies and she definitively was sincere 100%.
    She is touched and expressed it very well. Of course, she turned it to promote someone, but she's true. Ordinary, "politics" is so full of lies, it's refreshing to see someone of that class/group to really care.

    Hi Maria,

    If the message coming from MO can inspire people then that's good, but I find it hard to ignore the elephant in the room. As far as I'm concerned, every time these people make public speeches the first 5 minutes should be their explanation of why murder without due process is the shiznit. Then maybe I'll take them seriously when they lecture me on using no-no words.

    Hi PopeDover,

    I understand why it is so very easy to be jaded about politics: I am one who just decided to concentrate about my life, my beloved ones, my neighbours and the ones along my path. I know that I am helping to improve life on Earth, on a very tiny small scale. If everybody was doing it, that could be fantastic, an ocean is made of millions of millions of drops of water, so the well being of each humans on the planet too. But the cupidity is all around, individual to the planet size.
    You can be sure that cupidity is something I try to stay away from, in my circle. I just can't stand it.

    I realized many years ago that whatever I may feel inside about any situation in the world won't make happen "the" change, and to keep gruges and be angry and to pest against situations that I can't control might poisoning my life for real,
    and because I chose that I will make the most of my life to enjoy my "passage sur terre", I decided to cut the possible negative energies. I am not stating that there are not existing, I know they are, sadly.
    We call this here the "lâchez prise". And combine with another thing I learn, "choisir ces combats", because we couldn't be "sur tous les fronts".

    So, I am not part of the BIG solution, at the exact same level of those who are keeping all informed but still don't do nothing, but keeping themselves busy each day to complain and trying to convince others how horrible is our society managed, and how we are all exploited, empoisened by pharmas, brain washed by medias etc, etc, etc...... (I don't say it's totally false, by the way) I am talking here about some read I made of some few "conspirationists theories" and I can tell you the people who are the most daily engaged, from start (those I can read on internet) after verification, were people having not a very easy life and some are open to say they are using on a daily basis pot (and that's not making them unintelligent), it is just that we know that one possible side effect of regular consummation of pot is to develop paranoïa, that's documented. I think for those people that might been a never ending spinning wheel then and they are feeling even worst and they won't ever be able to get rid of their anger about any kind of autority/situation/human stupidity on Earth. My point here, is "Is their position to focus and to worry and hate" daily will make any change on the planet at the end? I don't know, but for sure they are living a more miserable life feeling so bad inside.

    And, you can think and realize there is good and beautiful things to live on Earth. And size the moment when it happens.

    And to return to that speech, I was happy that someone with somewhat a power on Earth came and stated clearly that what the other person of power did & say was just wrong, not an example to follow and to encourage.
    So she is a good leader for that point. I don't know at all her past history, I don't know if she ever been herself a bad person. But that speech against violence toward women was really well done. Don't you think?

    Note to other escorts: avoid making these kind of insulting and incredibly broad judgements about all the leaders of a country that supplies a large portion of the clientele of your business. Even if you believe such statements to be true, they are really bad for business.

    Note to Maria: Michelle Obama and her hubby think you are a helpless, unwitting victim of "sex traffickers" who is incapable of making her own decisions about how to lead her life and make a living.
    Strasser: You see, Captain, the situation is not as much under control as you believe.
    Renault: My dear Major, we are trying to cooperate with your government, but we cannot regulate the feelings of our people.
    Strasser: Captain Renault, are you entirely certain which side you're on?
    Renault: I have no conviction, if that's what you mean. I blow with the wind, and the prevailing wind happens to be from Vichy.

    Capt I think Maria does not really care about the impact of her comments on her business because she know and is confident that if she deliver a good service, clients will be back, no matter what she writes here. I personnaly prefer someone that write their guts and feeling here, even if I do not agree. It proves to me that they are real and honnest. These are the kind I want to meet

    Cheers,

    p.s. That Michelle Obama speech was fabulous. Period.

    Do you respect someone who sells out their integrity for a buck?

    Or someone who maintains their integrity despite the cost?

    Money is not everything.

    Agreed. I see no reason why Maria should not say how she feels, whatever anyone else may think. It takes some courage since someone may have objections or have an idea about treating her views negatively.

    Michelle Obama is a very well-spoken, intelligent person with the kind of class some people BADLY mistake as being politically correct. I saw part of a speech and she's very effective. I wouldn't want to see another President's wife run for office, but on her own if Mrs Obama had enough experience she might make an excellent representative of some kind of government office. I hold her in high esteem as she is.

    Cheers
    It's reported President-elect T-Rump has been skipping Intelligence meetings. Why would he change a lifelong habit now.

    I prefer escorts who are intelligent, educated and well-traveled and who have well informed opinions about issues of the day. I don't really enjoy the company of escorts (and other people) who thoughtlessly spout nutty opinions that are disrespectful of a country that is Canada's most important friend and ally. Moreover, since I enjoy the company of escorts who have a lot fewer miles on the odometer than Maria has, I would never want to meet her in the first place.

    Many left-wing Canadians (especially those who live in Quebec and Ontario) define their identity as Canadians by affirming their disdain for all things American. For those Canadians who do so, it's not their most admirable trait.

    Maria offered a positive and passionate thread, emphasizing not politics but: "Magnific statements about equality of chance, of respect of women from men, and to feel all concerned and work together to stop that mean sexism." For that matter the speech itself was widely celebrated for its intelligence; Michelle Obama is enormously popular.

    So why did this thread turn so ugly so quickly? It feels inevitable these days. I couldn't care less if I agree with the politics of escorts who post out here. It's just an amazing thing that they come out here at all, and that they contribute to the discussions and even debates. We're lucky to have such company. I worry that if we (the men) continue to demean the women who post here, we'll simply lose their contributions, their presence--and that would be an enormous loss. Let's act like gentlemen and show some respect, even when we disagree with their ideas and values..

    But it's OK to be disrespectful to a person? I don't normally respond to these type of threads but I think Maria doesn't deserve to be classified as not intelligent, uneducated or not well-traveled. Unless you know her personally I don't think she deserves such characterization based on one post that became off topic very quickly.
    I never met her, but she really doesn't deserve your post.

    We respect your choice. Respect her opinion. Even if you do not agree. I do not agree either...

    True. I hate to see that too. But honestly find me a population on the planet that does not disdain at least one another population... There is none. Human are not perfect I guess.

    Cheers,

    You call her staement "positive" and "emphasizing not politics?"

    She is indicting "ALL American leaders" for committing "atrocities...all around the world since ages" in order to "...steal the wealth of other countries by force."

    Is she the Canadian spokesperson for Kim Jong-un, the Castro brothers and Nicolas Maduro? It sounds like it. Her statement is a perfect example of an ignorant, biased, extreme left-wing indictment of all of American history. I have no respect for Maria or her opinion on anything. If she is going to make tendentious claims like that, then she should expect to have her views challenged and criticized.

    Of course she's great at orating - she went to princeton , Harvard Law (Best in the country , if not the world imo) and worked for a big corporate law firm. Can't have this kind of a resume without being a really good lawyer.
