I’ve been a man most of my life. A horny man for the most part. Thinking about these politicians being away from their sex partner for weeks. Do you think they can be unfaithful to their spouses for the good of the country?
I’ve been away months at a time and stayed faithful.
I agree with the problem but have a different solution to it:
With technology as it is now, we have no need for most of these guys to be in Washington DC hardly ever. A trip to the capital should be an occasional business trip for them. Most of the time they should be at home with their spouse, living in the same part of the country as the people they represent.
I agree. Only Government would waste money on transportation and multiple housing. Businesses use video conferencing to minimize costs, and to avoid going into the red. Even votes could and should be accomplished electronically.
Yikes! We can hardly get these guys to work while they’re in DC. Getting them to telework would be almost impossible.
If they don’t do anything we will just have to put up with consistency in our laws for a while. That sounds really terrible 🙄
Sure, they're politicians ain't they?
Rons....please don’t ever get married. You lack the maturity and faithfulness required from a good husband.
Lol, I was married on March 21, 1964. So nearly 54 yrs. I promise if she dumps me I will not marry again.
Anyway I’m not a politician in Washington the question references.
If they want some, they can get a divorce.
Having self control and treating others with respect is not a hard thing to do. It shouldn't be. These are powerful men who don't see women as equals. They believe they can get away with these horrific acts because they don't see women as people who deserve the same amount of respect.
If sex is more important than their partner for life, the oaths that they have taken or their integrity, they should consider another line of work. Sex isn't everything.
They swore a vow to their wives, just as they swore a vow to our government.
If they can’t uphold both vows then they need to leave or ask for interaction.
Intervention - geesh autocorrect
But we let Clinton slide. Actually his poll numbers increase in his base after cheating on Hillary.
I don’t think they knew what to do with Clinton. And very few people liked Hillary.
It’s all emotional decisions and not purely objective. If it were purely objective then probably all of our Presidents would have been thrown out of office. Trump just brought the issue to the fore when he got elected because he was so blatantly dismissive of his disgusting actions. It’s gotten safe, now, for women to come forward and complain.
I hope more come out.
It depends on what the definition of is is. LOL 😂
Maybe the Energizer is next.
I think the problem is power, not horniness. I’ve been married almost 40 years and I’ve never cheated on my wife.
Me either. I’ve had urges though. Even Jimmy Carter had lust in his heart.
What were you during those times you weren’t a man?
Good question voc.
Yeah, I’m still stuck on that point. 🤔
Somewhere between a boy and an old fart you are a man.
Being an old fart, myself; might I suggest that instead of expressing shock and disdain for what Mr. Trump said years back, that he was acknowledging a serious problem prevalent among celebrities and the powerful. We might not be as democratic as we think we are.
I am away from my wife (and before that, girl friends) for months at a time and never once cheated.
I knew that. My question was a little tongue in cheek.
the weak men are those who cave
