“Soft despotism is a term coined by Alexis de Tocqueville describing the state into which a country overrun by "a network of small complicated rules" might degrade. Soft despotism is different from despotism (also called 'hard despotism') in the sense that it is not obvious to the people."

Bar Refali, Best Butt, bar none.


  1. In all fairness, I would love her if she were not Israeli.

  2. ...yesterday, received this from a gal-pal, who laughing claims I was the inspiration...Hmm...


    Between 18 and 22, a woman is like Africa : half discovered, half wild,
    fertile and naturally beautiful.

    Between 23 and 30, a woman is like Europe : well developed and open to
    trade, especially for someone of real value.

    Between 31 and 35, a woman is like Spain : very hot, relaxed, and
    convinced of her own beauty.

    Between 36 and 40, a woman is like Greece : gently aging but still a
    warm and desirable place to visit.

    Between 41 and 50, a woman is like Great Britain : with a glorious and
    all conquering past.

    Between 51 and 60, a woman is like Israel : has been through war,
    doesn't make the same mistakes twice, takes care of business.

    Between 61 and 70, a woman is like Canada : self-preserving, but open
    to meeting new people.

    After 70, she becomes Tibet : wildly beautiful, with a mysterious past
    and the wisdom of the ages, an adventurous spirit and a thirst for
    spiritual knowledge.


    Between 1 and 90, a man is like Iran , ruled by nuts.

    THE END.

  3. Allen, that is brilliant, all good those delicious vicious creatures.

  4. R. is brilliant; would she were the one.

    If she were

  5. I'll second Deuce on the brilliance of that Geography post Allen!

  6. Yeah, I have good photo shop, too.

  7. How do you keep getting pictures of my wife?

  8. WiO,

    Sir, I am a gentleman ;-)

    Things are so much more tranquil here than in the following thread. linear and viktor are dismembering Ash like a couple Rotties on a ragdoll. His mouth is still moving, sort of like a double-pithed turtle.

  9. I had a great conversation with a kool-aid drinker today...

    He, was not aware of Honduras, Mary Robinson's disgraceful away of the Medal of Freedom, Obama's declaring East Jerusalem Juden Free, Fatah's important vote, 1st in 20 years that declared yes to armed resistance, all of Jerusalem, all refugees to be resettled in an Israel with 1948 armstice borders, the naming of Alska's Marytr's brigade as an official organ of the PA...

    It must be nice to be willfully ignorant about the world and then to expect others to respect that same imposed ignorance as knowledge...

  10. WIO, I don't want to go back through the archives but including this one how many wives does that make? Because you do know that they are all different women, right?

  11. we'll if i squint they sorta look like my wife....

  12. Iran has an intricate and beautiful history. Thoreau, Cicero, Xenophon, Plato, Machiavelli, Jefferson, Paine, etc. all educated men who have summoned forth from the rich literature and poetry of Iran/Persia. Well, I'm leaving a comment on a website that pays homage to the shape of a woman's ass so perhaps I'm under estimating my audience. Maybe not, who knows.
