Unsinkable Sinking of the Titanic

Greeting mews, my bold and beautiful KitKats... did you know April 15th is the anniversary date when the Titanic sank? The Kougaress finds this completely symbolic of what also occurs on this date... completely unfair taxation. Gee, wasn’t a revolutionary war fought over this? Wasn’t blood spilled, lives lost to gain freedom from this horrific burden?
Now the unsinkable American spirit has been co-opted, crushed... and the iceberg of corporate government is sinking us all into the muck and mire currently represented by the tent cities and the homeless, by those who are starving and have frozen to death in our beloved country... oh yowl, some want to tax those poor folks living in tent cities, too.

Yesterday, the Kougar did an internet search for Spitfire Heroines... not a whole lot there, to her great surprise. Why? Yes, spitfire heroines still star in romance novels. However, this Big Cat hasn’t noticed any *real* spitfires in American popular culture, recently... or what she would describe as a spitfire... though, she remains out of the mainstream celebrity loop by choice.
The question, though, why have women become so tame? Is it because most of us are so exhausted by the demands of everyday life we don’t have the energy to be as fiery as Maureen O’Hara or Scarlett?
Instead of wearing corsets ~ erotic exception, of course ~ have we become domesticated and corseted by the those fifth avenue types who know how to psychologically train our behavior? Hey, they’ve made us believe stick thin bodies are in, the ultimate body type desired by men. That’s a whole big fat lie, but how many young women and women buy into it, and actually believe this sophisticated propaganda?
Further, it’s the Kougaress’s contention, they’ve made women believe their righteous anger is wrong. Their spunky fiery spirit is wrong. That the proud emotional fury of a woman is unattractive, unwanted... wrong. It used to be there were men who adored a real woman with real fire and spunk, who was feisty and could challenge his strength. For one reason, I’m certain these men knew her passion would also be expressed in the bedroom. In their arms. Having sex. Loving each other.

Granted, not every woman’s nature is that of a spitfire. Nor, does every man desire that kind of love partner. Or, variety is the spice of life and one’s true nature should always be honored.

However, where is the spitfire woman, other than in romance novels? Where are the men who love her, other than in romance novels? Are they *gone with the wind*?

Okay, there is Susan Sarandon. She’s often a spitfire in real life and, at times, on screen. Though, it appears, to this Big Cat she’s the exception.

Sometimes I see men on tv shows and think, wow -- now that's a man romance stories talk about - even though they may not be six feet tall, or work out to keep a stellar body hard and sleek like. Which brings me to the questions -

X-Serial Flash in Two Hundred ~ Sylva and Zeke’s story continues...

Part 473 ~

Sylva grasped the small, green-glass bottle. Giving the contents a quick sniff, she tipped up a taste. “Ginger. Sort of like ginger ale, but different.” Her cowboy’s whiskey-colored eyes unclouded, his relief shining through. “Keep drinking whatever you can, darlin’.” Feeling her stomach settle after a few more swallows, Sylva gave him a grin. “I was asking about the ranch, everyone there? Are they okay?” Zeke hunkered beside her. “Yep. A-okay. Marina and Grant will be handlin’ everything. Right, dad?” Nevada had been moving toward them. Now, he halted beside his son. “Just spoke to your mother. Everything is fine.”

Zeke met his father’s implacable gaze. “They’ve been runnin’ patrols,” Nevada continued. “So far, nothin’ unusual. The alert’s gone ‘round the area, there’s possible hostiles. To be on the look out. No immediate reports of activity.” Zeke nodded as he stood. “What about in town?” he asked. “Sheriff said there was a fly over, then a brief landing by one of the discs. By the time he got on scene, they’d lifted off. Four of their craft were flying north. He checked over our place. Didn’t think anything had been bothered.” Zeke glanced toward Snake. “What about the tech-advanced pistol?”

Funny you should mention the Titanic. I just read an article about the movie. :)

Serena Shay said...

Woo hoo, check out those Kougar books over at at Fantastic Fiction! Very cool!

You know, I've always thought Angelina Jolie had the spitfire gene as well. :)

Savanna Kougar said...

Jolie, things are moving in synchronicity patterns, for sure.

Savanna Kougar said...

Serena, yeah, I didn't think of Angelina... I did see her, was it as Laura Croft?
She was darn tough.

I guess, when I think of spitfire, I think more about fiery sparring... although, it could certainly be physical and mental.
