“What IS necessary? Food, clothing and shelter? If you want to smell clean and fresh, hair removal or a close trim IS necessary. Hair does retain smell and the same sweat glands in the armpits are also downtown.

“Bad news for Republicans, good news for America (sorry to be redundant).”

Allen Clark on Dec 4, 2013 at 13:48:57

“your redundancy is just a reflection on how ignorant you are on the subject. You really need to understand, if it that good for the democrats, it will also be good for the republicans. Same plan! However, the difference is, the republicans do not share your optimism and hate being lied to. Something the Democrats seem to accept easily.”

“Incredibly enough, I have spoken with gay Republicans, thus I don’t doubt that I could find a believer in the resurrection, sky-God mythos who is not racist and sexist. Humans have the incredible ability to compartmentalize “logic problems” so as to protect larger belief systems.

But our need as a species to abandon childish myths is becoming quite acute. The billboards, and an extensive PR campaign borrowing much from anti-cigarette smoking campaigns, needs to continue.”
