    I am not a 'wimmin' who burns my bra as sign of some supposed rebellion protest. I am a Lady and expect to respected as such. My husband can tell me anything and it will be important because he is my friend. Treat your Ladies according to the respect you want back is my advice on behalf of my gender and yours. Respect is earned even between Man and Wife, not a given every day gratis.

    If you are emotionally invested in 'believing' something is true you have lost the ability to tell if it is true.

    You do get that bra burning went out with flares & tie dyed shirts, yes? Here in the 21st century a 'feminist' is just as likely to have an impressive lingerie collection as unshaven legs. Maybe more so.

    It was meant to be joke, but yes I am married and have been for 20+ years and I agree 100% that good/regular/honest communication is the key.

    Well, when the second thing happens, that's when you go pretend to run some errands, go meet your buddies at the bar, and hope she doesn't figure it all out when you get home.

    Bra burning was never in.

    The idea that feminists protested by burning their bras is a myth.

    Draft Cards were burned.

    White House leaps into Giuliani damage control
    politico.com, May 3, 2018

    Rudy Giuliani joined Donald Trump’s legal team with a mandate to quickly and aggressively stamp out the various investigations dogging his presidency.

    Instead, he’s causing new migraines for the White House.

    Giuliani appeared to stun Fox News host Sean Hannity on Wednesday night by revealing that Trump reimbursed his personal lawyer Michael Cohen for a $130,000 payment Cohen had made to the porn actress Stormy Daniels for her silence about an alleged affair.

    The statement — along with Giuliani’s comment that Trump “did know about the general arrangements” of the payment — appeared to contradict the president’s denial of any knowledge of the deal.

    While the revelation seemed designed to tamp down questions about whether the pre-election payment could constitute a campaign finance violation, it raised serious questions about whether Trump publicly lied and if Giuliani complicated ongoing litigation between Daniels and the president.

    Let me see if I can get this story right - I doubt it but I'll a try... There was no affair/consensual improper relations between some Lady known for making 'adult films' and a guy who claims he best strategy with a Lady is to grab them by the private bit. Nothing to see. Ok.

    But his lawyer, Cohen - also involved in other murky business deals with Moscow which absolutely never happened too - mortgaged his house (or one of his properties) to pay off a Lady of little repute to the tune of $130,000 to keep her quiet about nothing. Hmm... Sure about that?

    Also Cohen made some bogus company to make the transaction with this Lady but never mentioned a dickie bird to his client who this Lady falsely claimed to have improper relations with. Entirely Cohen without acting without instructions or warning Trumpkin at all. This is where I begin to have doubts myself. Lawyers do not act without instructions.

    So then Cohen gets raided by Police who grab a whole load of his files because of Moscow related murky stuff. He claims unfair in relation to the Lady allegation and the pay off he made of his own accord because of client - lawyer confidentiality... although he said he acted without instruction. This seems just contradictory if I understand it clearly.

    Then Trumpkin gets filmed saying he never knew a thing about this payment that his lawyer mortgaged property to make - "ask Cohen" so again no instructions were given so why claim confidentiality?

    Then in court they - including Trumpkin himself - argue client - lawyer confidentiality regarding the documents the Police nabbed from Cohen. At this point clearly a building is catching fire somewhere; someone is fibbing and it is clear Trumpkin is in on it.

    So then having argued confidentiality regarded the files the seized by Police Trumpkin then goes on TV and says Cohen is more of business man and represents him as a lawyer on a fraction of his overall legal - thereby reversing the confidentiality argument made in court... Oops.

    Now we have this new idiot reversing the whole original mess; Cohen was repayed by a monthly retainer fee - which presumably Trumpkin knew about. But he never knew about this payment made by Cohen and he can't be subpoened (by Mueller) because he is too busy and his daughter can't be she is a "fine Lady" but her husband, Kushner, can...

    Only the best people?

    Please feel free to point out if I got the story so far wrong... unbelievable.

    And the dodgers never should have been pardoned. It introduced a cancer in society.

    Still not a crime under FEC regs. Its not a contribution or in kind contribution and is specifically excluded from being counted as such by FEC regs so says the man who wrote them. Meanwhile the FEC is beign sued to force them to look at 84 MILLION dollars in illegal campaign contributions by the HRC16 campaign via illegal pass throughs of state parties.
