Rush: Bachelorette A, would you agree that Feminism was established to allow unattractive women easier access to the mainstream?

St. Marilyn: Well, I don't mind living in a man's world as long as I can be a woman in it. Besides, women who seek to be equal with men lack ambition.

Rush: OK, Bachelorette B, same question.

St. Em: Women need not always keep their mouths shut and their wombs open.

Rush: Ouch! Bachelorette C, do you agree that teaching is a wonderful profession? Teachers help educate people to become good citizens so that citizens can then go create wealth. But they don't create the wealth themselves?

St. Helen: Children should above all be taught self-reliance, love for all men, altruism, mutual charity, and, more than anything else, to think and reason for themselves.

Rush: Charity? We are the leading capitalist country in the world, and we're the country with the largest dollar amount of charitable donations every year, disaster relief, I mean, it's not even close. The United States leads the world in acts of goodwill and charity, economic and otherwise. And to see it under attack, I can't believe it. I literally can't believe it.

St. Helen: Adverse opinions are like conflicting winds which brush from the quiet surface of a lake the green scum that tends to settle upon still waters.

Rush: Mmmm, hmmm?

Rush: Bachelorette A, What about children?

St. Marilyn: The thing I want more than anything else? I want to have children. I used to feel for every child I had, I would adopt another... I've always wanted a baby... Having a child, that's always been my biggest fear. I want a child and I fear a child... Someday I want to have children and give them all the love I never had.

Rush: Mmmmm, Tough childhood huh? So what does make you happy?

St. Marilyn I was brought up differently than the average American child because the average child is brought up expecting to be happy... No one ever told me I was pretty when I was a little girl. All little girls should be told they're pretty, even if they aren't... You know, Creativity has got to start with humanity and when you're a human being, you feel, you suffer. You're gay, you're sick, you're nervous or whatever... I know I will never be happy, but I know I can be gay!

Rush: Never happy?

St. Marilyn: The nicest thing for me is sleep, then at least I can dream.

Rush: Mmmmm-hmmmm, Bachelorette B, Dreams?

St. Em: When we can't dream any longer we die.

Rush: Terse. Bachelorette C, do you have anything to add on dreams?

St. Helen: Has then the phenomenon of dreams been so thoroughly studied by materialistic science, that she has nothing more to learn, since she speaks in such authoritative tones upon the subject? Not in the least. The phenomena of sensation and volition, of intellect and instinct, are, of course, all manifested through the channels of the nervous centers, the most important of which is the brain. The peculiar substance through which these actions take place has two forms, the vesicular and the fibrous, of which the latter is held to be simply the propagator of the impressions sent to or from the vesicular matter. Yet while this physiological office is distinguished, or divided by science into three kinds—the motor, sensitive and connecting—the mysterious agency of intellect remains as mysterious and as perplexing to the great modern physiologists as it was in the days of Hippocrates.

Rush: …................................mhhhh-hmmm

St. Marilyn: I don't consider myself an intellectual. And this is not one of my aims. But I admire intellectual people.

Rush: Oh, shut up!

St. Marilyn: If I'd observed all the rules, I'd never have got anywhere.

Rush: So you'd say the more dependent you are, the more ignorant you must be, and that's how they want you?

St. Marilyn: I have feelings too. I am still human. All I want is to be loved, for myself and for my talent.

Rush: Idiot.

St. Marilyn: Arthur Miller wouldn't have married me if I had been nothing but a dumb blonde.

{Moderator--Please do not share identifying or descriptive information.}

St. Marilyn: Sorry...Fear is stupid. So are regrets.

Rush: I never heard of him, Blonde Huh?


Rush: Bachelorette B, What does it say about the college co-ed [Sandra] Fluke who goes before a congressional committee and essentially says that she must be paid to have sex -- what does that make her? It makes her a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute. She wants to be paid to have sex. She's having so much sex she can't afford the contraception. She wants you and me and the taxpayers to pay her to have sex!?

St. Em: Someone has said that it requires less mental effort to condemn than to think. To the moralist, prostitution does not consist so much in the fact that the woman sells her body, but rather that she sells it out of wedlock.

Rush: Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait. She's... you've... gone, you know ...out of control, rogue...

St. Em: The political arena leaves one no alternative, one must either be a dunce or a rogue.

Rush: …........Bachelorette C, I love when people realize something they think on their own. That is when you have been your most persuasive. Not when you're wagging a finger in somebody's face, demanding that they accept something or believe it. When they figure it out themselves.

St. Helen: Knowledge increases in proportion to its use, that is, the more we teach the more we learn.... Mankind — the majority at any rate — hates to think for itself. It resents as an insult the humblest invitation to step for a moment outside the old well-beaten tracks and, judging for itself, to enter into a new path in some fresh direction.

Rush: That raises a red flag right there! But...we are here for love Bachelorette B, how do you feel about free love?

St. Em: Free love? as if love is anything but free. Man has bought brains, but all the millions in the world have failed to buy love.... The demand for equal rights in every vocation of life is just and fair; but, after all, the most vital right is the right to love and be loved.

Rush: Rights – rights – rights, Hey you know The First Amendment doesn't give anybody the right to be heard. People don't have to listen to you....and you know why there's a Second Amendment? In case the government fails to follow the first one. Bachelorette A, how do you feel about free love?

St Marilyn: I think that sexuality is only attractive when it's natural and spontaneous....Sex is a part of nature. I go along with nature.... Men who think that a woman's past love affairs lessen her love for them are usually stupid and weak.... Experts on romance say for a happy marriage there has to be more than a passionate love. For a lasting union, they insist, there must be a genuine liking for each other. Which, in my book, is a good definition for friendship....Marriage destroyed my relationship with two wonderful men....besides, the public doesn't mind people living together without being married, providing they don't overdo it. I used to get the feeling, and sometimes I still get it, that sometimes I was fooling somebody; I don't know who or what, maybe myself....The truth is, I've never fooled anyone. I've let men sometimes fool themselves.

Rush: That's cool...See, folks, marriage is a gateway to conservatism. That's obviously another reason why the left hates it....

St. Em: Marriage and love have nothing in common; they are as far apart as the poles; are, in fact, antagonistic to each other. No doubt some marriages have been the result of love. Not, however, because love could assert itself only in marriage; much rather is it because few people can completely outgrow a convention. There are today large numbers of men and women to whom marriage is naught but a farce, but who submit to it for the sake of public opinion. At any rate, while it is true that some marriages are based on love, and while it is equally true that in some cases love continues in married life, I maintain that it does so regardless of marriage, and not because of it. On the other hand, it is utterly false that love results from marriage. On rare occasions one does hear of a miraculous case of a married couple falling in love after marriage, but on close examination it will be found that it is a mere adjustment to the inevitable. Certainly the growing-used to each other is far away from the spontaneity, the intensity, and beauty of love, without which the intimacy of marriage must prove degrading to both the woman and the man.

Rush: Fem... I better not say it, reminds me of when our politically correct society acted like some giant insult had taken place by calling a bunch of people who are retards, retards... Bachelorette C, you seem bright--I've said, “Being stuck is a position few of us like. We want something new but cannot let go of the old--old ideas, beliefs, habits, even thoughts. We are out of contact with our own genius. Sometimes we know we are stuck; sometimes we don't. In both cases we have to DO something.”

St. Helen: Right, thought is a good thing, but thought alone does not count for much unless it is translated into action.

Rush: Its bad out there.... There's such cultural rot taking place, such a disintegration throughout our culture. Values, morality, you name it. Standards have been relaxed, and people are not being held to them. People's intentions, if they're said to be good and honorable, that's all that matters.

St. Helen: The whole order of nature evinces a progressive march towards a higher life.

St. Marilyn: I am involved in a freedom ride protesting the loss of the minority rights belonging to the few remaining earthbound stars. All we demanded was our right to twinkle.

Rush: Wait, wait, wait--The world's biggest problem is the unequal distribution of capitalism. If there were capitalism everywhere, you wouldn't have food shortages.

St. Em: The State is the altar of political freedom and, like the religious altar, it is maintained for the purpose of human sacrifice....The history of progress is written in the blood of men and women who have dared to espouse an unpopular cause, as, for instance, the black man's right to his body, or woman's right to her soul....Every daring attempt to make a great change in existing conditions, every lofty vision of new possibilities for the human race, has been labeled--Utopian.

{Moderator--We are out of time and Rush seems out of patience--who will Rush choose to ...Rush?}

Rush: --Feminazi--slut--whore--divorced--green scum?--vesicular--rogue--DUNCE...

{Moderator--We will leave Rush to his ruminations, who do you think he will ask out?}
