Asked in Labor and Birth
What does giving birth feel like?
Giving birth ranges from feeling like sex, to being truly unbearable. I have had 12 kids, the first one was like pooping a thousand knives. the last one was like having sex and vibrating my Virgina. Birth is truly painful, i hate it, but as soon as the baby is out, the pain stops. I think birth sucks Dick.
Asked in Decade - 1950s, Joseph McCarthy, The Red Scare
Which group was the target of the red scare during the 1950s?
For the most part the US Senate hearings conducted by Senator Joseph McCarthy in the early 1950s were designed to expose communists in the film industry and to an extent question whether communists had penetrated the US Government. Eventually the Senate censured McCarthy for practices not in line with the Senate's respect for policies and procedures and personal privacy. For a time, however, the general public was, to a degree, alarmed by McCarthy's accusations. His position was given some credence by the conviction of Alger Hiss and the trial of the Rosenbergs, charged with giving atomic bomb secrets to the Soviet Union. Of note is that for short time New York lawyer Roy Cohn and Robert F. Kennedy were on McCarthy's staff.
Asked in Blarney Castle
What is the Blarney Stone?
The world famous Blarney Stone is situated high up in the battlements of the castle. Follow one of the several long, stone spiral staircases up to the top and enjoy the spectacular views of the lush green Irish countryside, Blarney House and The Village of Blarney. The stone is believed to be half of the Stone of Scone which originally belonged to Scotland. Scottish Kings were crowned over the stone, because it was believed to have special powers. The stone was given to Cormac McCarthy by Robert the Bruce in 1314 in return for his support in the Battle of Bannockburn. Queen Elizabeth I wanted Irish chiefs to agree to occupy their own lands under title from her. Cormac Teige McCarthy, the Lord of Blarney, handled every Royal request with subtle diplomacy, promising loyalty to the Queen without "giving in". Elizabeth proclaimed that McCarthy was giving her "a lot of Blarney", thus giving rise to the legend.
What was Joseph McCarthy known for?
Sen. Joseph McCarthy of Wisconsin was known for leading the Congressional investigations into Communist influences in the US during the early 1950's. The worldwide competition between the US and the USSR was called the "Cold War" and involved many such allegations against Communist Party members and suspected sympathizers, as well as blackmailed or corrupted officials. The House UnAmerican Activities Committee and Senate Committee on Government Operations were the primary venues for Congressional hearings, which were later denounced as "witch hunts" by the news media and the US government. Details McCarthy made a speech in Wheeling, WV, in 1950 saying that there were over 200 members of the Communist Party in the U.S. State Dept.. This number has not been substantiated. Once he got a lot of media attention, he revised that number to under one hundred. There is reason to believe that McCarthy as a Republican wanted to embarrass the Truman administration and break the two decades of Democratic control of the presidency. He had also been polled as the worst senator in office by the Senate press corps a few years earlier, so he undoubtedly was trying to save his own political skin Following WW II, there was a lot of concern about the USSR and communists taking over the United States. People were convicted of giving the secrets of the atomic bomb to the USSR. The House UnAmerican Activities Committee held hearings concerning the activities of some members of government. Following the publicity McCarthy received, HUAC and the Tydings Committee stepped up their investigations. McCarthy kept changing the number of people he accused of being communists in the government and never disclosed the source of this information. He also quoted hearsay as facts, which as a lawyer he should have known not to do. In 1952, McCarthy was made chair of the Senate Committee on Government Operations with the notorious Roy Cohn as legal counsel. With this committee and with the new television technology, he continued to receive public attention. He also widened his investigation to include people outside the government and eventually the Army. Altogether McCarthy's name is associated with anti-communist rabble-rousing and hearings reminiscent of the Salem witch trials. The McCarthy Era only lasted a few years, but many people (especially in the entertainment industry) lost their jobs and were blacklisted for a decade. Notable were the "Hollywood Ten". Eventually, the Tydings Report labeled McCarthy's accusations as fraud. McCarthy later died of the effects of alcoholism. The McCarthy Era inspired Arthur Miller's play "The Crucible", Lillian Helman's book, "Scoundrel Time" and movies like "The Manchurian Candidate". Truth in the McCarthy Allegations Yes, there was a Red Scare in the Government and in Hollywood during the early 50's. Spies were everywhere. The Democrats and the news media made McCarthy look like an idiot, but years later, it was shown that such coordinated spying did actually take place. Many US diplomatic and military secrets are still leaked to Russia or China by enemy agents and paid US conspirators.

Asked in Jokes and Riddles
A really funny joke?
A senator in 1868 was giving a speech to a tribe of Indians. "The GREAT FATHER in Washington promises that you will always have enough to eat" said the senator. "Hoora, hoora, hoora!" cheered the Indians. "The GREAT FATHER in Washington promises that you will always have a home and will be provided for in all your needs" said the senator. "Hoora, hoora, hoora!" cheered the Indians. The senator was really feeling good and said "GREAT FATHER in Washington promises that nobody wll be allowed on your lands or take them away from you." The Indians went wild "Hoora, hoora, hoora hoora, hoora, hoora hoora, hoora, hoora!" After the speech, the senator was walking with the chief and spied a bull in the field and said "Chief, can I go take a closer look at that bull over there?" "Yes" said the chief, "but don't step in any hoora."
Asked in US Presidents
Who are the democrats who ran for president in 1968 and what were their beliefs regarding Vietnam?
The incumbent President Lyndon Johnson , was the obvious candidate, and his views on Vietnam should be obvious. Senator Eugene McCarthy from Minnesota , anti-war, was the first that dared challenge President Johnson and he made an excellent showing in early primaries. He did so well that Robert Kennedy, who was against the war, got up the courage to challenge the President as well as McCarthy. With his name and connections, he scared Johnson into giving up the fight . Vice-President Hubert Humphrey then announced that he was running , but did not enter any primaries. In his stead, various favorite son candidates ran as surrogates for Humphrey. Humphrey implicitly ran as a supporter of Johnson's policies, as did his surrogates: Sen. George Smathers who won the FL primary, Sen Stephen Young who won the Ohio primary and Gov. Roger Branigan who ran in Indiana but lost to the anti-war kennedy and McCarthy. Kennedy seemed to be pulling away from McCarthy in the primary races when he was killed. After Kennedy's death his delegates mostly rallied behind Sen. George McGovern who shared his ant-war views. Several states did not hold primaries and Humphrey had a strong edge with the Democratic establishment and worked to cultivate that edge and won the nomination. .
