Where are American Men (Vanity)
January 16, 2013 | ConservativeInPa

Posted on 01/16/2013 4:38:35 PM PST by ConservativeInPA

I am listen to Hannity (delayed) while I wait for my daughter to complete her music lesson this evening. Hannity amazes me. He calls himself a conservative, but he is so willing to spend tax dollars to solve the "gun violence" problem.

It got me thinking about where are American men. What I mean by that, is a man that has the courage to defend his family instead of spending tax dollars and going further in debt for ineffective solutions. (E.g., the police are only minutes away ...).

If anything, all of the solutions being proposed cost more money, puts our children further in debt, reduces our rights, freedoms and liberties while not increasing security one iota. In fact, it reduces our security.

Now that I calmly wrote that, I am really pissed. This country is really messed up because there are no longer enough American men.

The problem, as you well know, is not the gun but the person. And, you cannot legislate good behavior.

Thank women’s libs, the welfare state, abortion and lying POLs.

Who needs providers now? The nanny state is the provider of choice to the female sheeple.

When the cherade ends, what a shock will be in store.

Men still exist, but are very unappreciated. Keep your powder dry. Heavy waves ahead.

First of all, Hannity is an idiot.

"Gun violence" is not the issue, it is a canard being used by the left. The issue is the destruction of the 2nd Amendment and the disarmament of Americans. Arguing facts, solutions, etc., is playing right into their hands.

It’s too expensive to be a “real man” anymore. And for what?

I’m unable to listen to hannity’s radio show because I find his style aggravating. I also find his television show unwatchable.

I know that most men are on FR are fine. I thought that was assumed. How did all of these metrosexuals show up?

Blame the media. If anyone stands up they'll tear him down.

Do you remember how they went after Joe the Plummer?

The media must be stopped. Their agenda/bias is the problem with the country. Without the media the Democrat party would be regionally and ineffective.

Rush is doing his job...

And for what?

Just little things like raising a family without government handouts. Protecting your family instead of waiting for the police to show up. Standing up to fags, Muslims, illegal immigrants and Obama's people when they want your money. We can't afford it anymore because they take so much of our money.

There are many real men around. They surely do not follow or subscribe to the PhonyCon liberalism edpoused by Hannity and his fellow PhonyCons

Does make you wonder what people are passing off as “conservative” these days. Ouch

Men have gone to ground. They will not compete against women nor against a culture that has been repulsively feminized.

We’re here. In small towns and in rural areas all over the south, midwest, the west and Alaska. You don’t hear of us much because most of us have to work and pay the bills. We don’t have time to “occupy” much of anything because we’re too busy trying to do the right thing. But rest assured, we’re out here and getting pretty gahhdamn sick and tired of what’s going on in our country.

I've got one of them!

I can file the list of his manly traits under “things feminist hate because they want to be men” . But it makes them ugly inside and out. They don't understand that it takes a real woman to find, keep and love, a real man.
It is unfortunate that male children are being raised by such selfish hags.

1. A man makes the hard decisions that need to be made and bears the emotional burden and responsibility of those decisions; leaving his woman free to cry.

2. A man will take the most demeaning job available to support his family. A smart woman (his woman) will heap on the praise and learn to cook beans in 10000 different ways for love of his efforts.

3. A man will take out the smelly trash but leave his smelly socks in the living room next to his ugly chair. A woman (his woman) will pick up the socks without complaint because she hates the smelly garbage more. The chair can wait....

4. A man can come home after a hard days work and smell like a man. A real woman (his woman) doesn't curl her nose, she'd rather run to him and feel those strong arms around her...the bath can wait a moment or two.

5. A man brings home small trinkets, it could be something cute he saw at the gas station after he filled up (his woman's) car, perhaps a key bob or a bic lighter with a pretty picture, he brings it to Her.

6. A man is a BBQ chef! Mostly its good, sometimes not so much, but it is always wonderful and praise worthy to (his woman).

7. A man talks about his day, how it relates to him, how he perceives others, (his woman) barely gets a word in edgewise. The real woman serves him beer if he likes it tea if that's his choice, listens and advises if he needs it, and enjoys his peace and comfort later.

8. A man who is not a tradesman can still fix a running toilet, a stopped up sink, open a pesky package with his pocket knife, get the car running, take the dog to the vet and still tell (his woman) how beautiful she is and how HE can't live without HER.

9. A man will give up a football game to let (his woman) watch some stupid show..again. He leaves the room frequently, has business in the back room, where the other TV resides, but insists he's not that interested in the game. A woman (his woman) will show her appreciation by ensuring his glass is never empty, his dinner is on time, and, other ways.

10. A man tells crude jokes, laughs at stupid antics, indeed takes part in stupid antics. A man is demanding and unreasonable, a man blusters and complains, a man is gentle and kind, faithful, annoying, childish, irresponsible in so many ways.

I'll take a man any day, because I am a woman (his woman)

Today’s women are what happened to men.

Women have been told they can do it all.

Why the hell would they want to? They don’t ask this question of themselves.

Of course a woman can do it all-if she must. But they don’t Have To.

The men being raised today, have no concept of their place because of this.

Open a door for a woman, get berated. Act as protector get berated. Tell the wife she can’t afford that new dress, get berated ( I work!!!! You sob!!,,)

How sweet CST.

Real men. Real women. They belong together.

Now, go give your woman a hug and kiss from “nowhere” for no reason.

Now that is a wonderful (and very sane) list of how a rational woman behaves when she’s in a relationship with a real man. I consider myself blessed that Mrs. Windflier scores about 80% on that.

I’d like to think that I score at least as well, but I don’t know. After eighteen years, I’m still a work in progress :-)

That bears repeating.

I'm reminded of the story, from several years ago, of a boys' wrestling team that forfeited a match rather than wrestle girls. They sure took some heat for that act of manliness.

Men (not all and not on FR) decided it was expected to shave their chests, arms, legs, wear skinny pant, dress like a teenage girl and whine like a baby when there is work to do. In short act like a spoiled women.

Some reasons why are, women have been taught that men are not needed, to disrespect real men, and men being men is unacceptable.

It’s always a work in progress!

Sometimes I just want to push a stick in his spokes and laugh at the resulting crash.

We have 25 years under our belts, and it has not always been smooth sailing.

When all is said and done, I wouldn’t trade him for all of Solomon’s gold, but, damn, he pisses me off more rather than less.

You know what’s kept us together in spite of our human feelings and imperfections?

Two things.

1. Our vow to God to stay together until Death parts us. I should say our Solemn Vow. A VOW TO GOD. Which has no bearing on how we may “feel” at any given time.

2. Knowing that Love is not always a “feeling” but a Commandment.

Think about it.

“Men still exist, but are very unappreciated.”

Yes, and another thing. Part of the process of becoming “all you can be” as a man is to become a husband and father. We’ve allowed that process to be interrupted for large segments of men, across a few generations now. Doing so, we are stunting their development, and creating perpetual teenagers.

If we want to change that, we need to reverse the destruction of the family, and in order to do that, we need to get rid of “no fault” divorce laws. Nobody much wants to hear that, so it’s not a popular view on the right or the left. Everyone wants to do what is convenient for them rather than society, and we will all pay for that selfishness on both political sides.

I do that all the time. I love her forever. The best part of it is that it natural. I really don’t get the rest of the America given my little perspective of my life. I know it works for me. I think I am teaching my children well. We just need more MEN to take responsibility and be fathers, husbands and defenders of America.

When I was in high school the boys looked forward to close contact wrestling with girls.

The real American men are busily loading ammo from stripper clips into 30-round magazines! Fortunately mine were already loaded months ago.

Ahhh. But the intent of the left above all else is to destroy the family unit and the morals of the nation.

They know that is the end of the nation and the culture.

Of course the Obastard wants this. He is a Lying Muzzie Commie B_tard, intent on the end of Christianity, Capitalism and Freedom in this generation.

And where have the women gone?

My mother was a woman like this scripture (she died 5 months ago, was married to my father 66 years):

Proverbs 31:10-31

King James Version (KJV)

10 Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.

11 The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.

12 She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.

13 She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.

14 She is like the merchants’ ships; she bringeth her food from afar.

15 She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens.

16 She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.

17 She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms.

18 She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night.

19 She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff.

20 She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.

21 She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet.

22 She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple.

23 Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land.

24 She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant.

25 Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.

26 She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.

27 She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.

28 Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.

29 Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.

30 Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.

31 Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.

BTW, my wife and I will be married 42 years on March 26.

“Ahhh. But the intent of the left above all else is to destroy the family unit and the morals of the nation.”

Sure, the left is intentionally malicious and wants to destroy traditional families, so they can substitute the state for the parents and easily indoctrinate children. That’s the end game for them.

The right, on the other hand, isn’t intentionally malicious. They even want to preserve families, since they know their importance. However, preserving heterosexual marriage from eroding into a sham of an institution is of far greater importance than preventing homosexual sham marriages from being recognized by the state, when it comes to preserving families. You can argue that the latter is worse for the institution of marriage itself in the long run, but in the short term impact on families, tolerating the divorce free-for-all is much worse than a few fruitloops tying the knot.

Don’t get me wrong, I am against “gay marriage”, but I think we are myopic about the issue and not really addressing the bigger picture.

You know, in a thousand years, if we’re still around, some archaelogists might date our sediment layer by the caches of rusty weapons and ammunition that they find buried all over the US thanks to Obama. We won’t be the Bronze Age, or the Iron Age, but maybe the “Lead Age” instead.
