Laz pulls that joke off better than I do
Laz should have a disclaimer
“Don’t try this at home folks, I’m a trained professional”
‘Their victory will largely depend on our weakness; not their strength.’
Sad but true.
Disclaimer: I am not now and do not expect to be, in a
relationship at any time in the future. I have a dog.
Somehow, telling us that you have a dog doesnt help your case here.
Exactly. It amazes me that some posters here fail to realize that dating and relationships are a two way street. Both sides are so busy ‘getting even’.
Why go out for hamburger when you have steak at home?
Not “liberating”; turning them into libertines. And the women, too. Feminism started from envy. And went downhill after that. It’s pure evil.
First and foremost, I cannot believe that none of you have anykind of meaningful relationship. Some have hinted of it, but none defined. I thank God everyday for my wife. She loves, cares, and adores me. I, in turn, love, care, and adore her. We are by no means a perfect couple. She wakes me in the morning, and kisses me goodnight. She curses me in the morning and kisses me in the evening. I’ve never had better....well I won’t go there.
Thank you God for blessing me (and cursing me sometimes,LOL) for this beautiful woman.
secondly, I can’t believe I’m up so late!
Not only do they like it, they respect it. There's nothing quite like a woman who can take care of the kids and make things run like a clock.
It takes skill and a smart man knows it and appreciates it.
You got it. I have seen more young women live with a guy for a while, the guy leaves for greener pastures, and she is left wondering why he didn’t marry her.
Breaking news. Women like sex.
it was about empowering less attractive women
pretty women have always been empowered and transcendent
Philippians is one of my favorite books. We had the first two chapters memorized at one point ... I think I’ll make committing the whole thing to memory my project for Lent!
I’m reminded of the lines of Robert Burns, about “seeing ourselves as others see us.” If we all looked at ourselves with illusion, we’d have fewer complaints about others!
I don’t know. It does seem to me that many of today’s young women have different goals than I did, but that’s really the extent of my awareness and understanding of this issue.
Look at the history of it, and how it was presented in the 1700’s.
It was more about having multiple sex partners for men.
Imho, Charlie is bi-polar. That’s an entirely different issue.
Over 50, he can have a vasectomy and decline to marry. She can live in his mansion as long as she behaves. He just needs to be careful of not letting the arrangement be considered a common-law marriage, and be careful of "palimony".
It proves that you have to buy a woman a few drinks and pretend to find them interesting first, whereas a man is willing to skip all that and just drop trow.
One of Rush Limbaugh's undeniable truths.
haha Some freepers are perfect, perfect families, perfect jobs, perfect healthcare, not to mention great looking and in fabulous shape.
You have been around here long enough to know that.
I wanna ask them (if you are so perfect, why do you feel the need to brag about it and and attempt to dress down your fellow man in a public forum?)
They should out volunteering nd staying on top of perfection instead of showing off online
In the inner cities, there are lots of men being "baby daddy" to lots of kids, without feeling much need to support or raise them.
I know what you mean!
I’M STEALING THAT.
Women make up more than 50% of voters. Legislators who want to get elected, and judges who want to be confirmed, tend to be aware of that fact, and that women tend to pay a lot of attention to "women issues" when they vote.
Not news to me.
I read Malcolm X's autobiography. He had a lot of good observations, which might be why he was such an effective opinion leader.
His observation about wives is correct. A man is much more likely to stray is he doesn't feel appreciated at home. A wife who satisfies his needs is more valuable than a wife who just brings in a second income.
Right...because before feminism, attractive women were running the world. /s
Legislators and judges could still do the right thing. If they choose not to, they are betraying men, and humanity in general, for selfish gain.
what made sex so much easier for me to obtain was the PILL not women's lib
women's lib did make women think they could act like men and be more openly randy...that is true but that is not why it happened
it happened because frustrated...mostly Jewish urban and bored suburban women (Lilith types)spearheaded a movement for more job parity and just sorta lived out this anti man sentiment they had harboured and if you look at most of them you can see why...most were never asked to the prom etc
and it went hand in hand with their red ideas about society anyhow
then other American women and media and Hollywood jumped in and it became all sorts of stuff and sold girls so much BS and eventually led to how screwed up we are today..in this area and empowered the rise of homosexuality more than any other single factor this side of all those Civil Rights acts since women so often have a fag hag tendency
but what really pushed promiscuity was the pill and all that free love casual sex stuff which I myself took part in before the Freidans, Steinheims, Faludis, Wolfes and Dworkins of the world became media darlings....women's lib though marching in the streets in say 71-74 did not become entrenched till say the movie Nine to Five...81 or so
but attractive women have always been very empowered and still are
look at all those Housewives shows
attractive women ..some fading...some not but once most were at the top of their game
none had jack before they married rich men..now look at them
it was always like that
now...women have something to prove and many..especially northern gals feel compelled to compete with the man..and be so chinny and strident
I love women...i take care of many in my family
and there are exceptions.....a few who lead well and whom I would put faith in
but as a rule women were not somewhat subordinate to men because men oppressed them but because it was the natural order and made sense..especially in times witjh less leisure and material discretion and convenience and wars were everyone male under 50 fought
not because men hated women ...now with Islam...well that is purposeful subjugation to keep women down for fidelity it seems
I have dealt with women for many many years...5 decades...they are simply different but as a rule..all things being equal men make better leaders and decision makers...especially under stress and can deal with group tension better
drama and inability to reason as readily is what brings women down...and their bodies have so much more effect on them
it's not because they are not smart
it's sorta like the Bible said...Head-Heart, respect and protect, nurture and maternal...we both have our roles
and there are exceptions
that's my take
The extension of the suffrage, I believe, will encourage this awakening; in wresting it from the reluctant male the women of the western world have planted dragons' teeth, the which will presently leap up and gnaw them. Now that women have the political power to obtain their just rights, they will begin to lose their old power to obtain special privileges by sentimental appeals. Men, facing them squarely, will consider them anew, not as romantic political and social invalids, to be coddled and caressed, but as free competitors in a harsh world.
When that reconsideration gets under way there will be a general overhauling of the relations between the sexes, and some of the fair ones, I suspect, will begin to wonder why they didn't let well enough alone.
H.L. Mencken, 1922
I also think women have (more prominently than men) a fairly strong inbuilt desire to bond emotionally and build a secure relationship with a man with whom they have shared their sexual embrace. This is not, of course, to say that there are not promiscuous, emotionally shut-down women; but these women have done violence to their inward "connective" nature.
This inward damage to women really troubles me. At some point I think most women will realize that transitory sexual alliances will maim them spiritually.
There are many Marilyn Monroes out there; but Marilyn Monroe was not a happy woman.
...still stuck with child support payments or wage garnishments.
I respect your opinions. I disagree with some of them, but I respect them.
Using The Real Housewives of...Whatever City as an example of empowerment isn’t a strong example. I could turn it around and make the claim that just by watching “Storage Wars” or “Ice Road Truckers” I know that men are spiteful, petty, shallow, and bicker over silly matters. But I know that’s not true. Aren’t most of those women broke or living on credit anyway?
As for women being “empowered”, I can only go by personal experience. Graduated college, went out on my own, started off as a receptionist and ended up as the head of IT for the southeast region of a big company. My looks, or lackthereof, didn’t play a part in it. Hard work did. I didn’t expect any special favors being female, I just expected to be treated like anyone else, and I was. That’s what should happen in the workplace, and in life, with women. If they’re good at something, that’s good - I say go for it and excel. Looks only go so far.
And now that I’m married with a kid, I’m home with the kid - and I make most of the big and small household decisions because I’m good at it and my husband isn’t (his admission). He makes a great living as an executive for a major corporation, but when it comes to family decisions, he defaults to me because I’m logical and reasonable and he’s...well, geeky and short-sighted (again, his admission). It works very well for us.
I wrestle with guilt for not working every day (my issue - not my husband’s fault). I went to college and earned a good living and now I’m home, not using my talents...other than budgeting and organizing. Whoopdeedoo. But my kid and my husband have a nice, clean, organized life, so I guess that’s good. And this way of life works for us.
So that’s what I have to go on: personal experience. Women (ugly or attractive) who are good at something shouldn’t be shoved back in the kitchen, or wherever, because men want to “feeeeeeeel” powerful. It’s a waste of God-given talent. And when it comes to looks, when was the last time looks mattered when you were on an operating table, or your dog was sick, or you needed a financial manager?
My 2 cents.
Excellent post, coop71. I think the issue of women’s looks is a red herring. Look at pictures of some of the famous women of history - they ain’t all plus a real-meat cheezburger, most of them, and they had rotten teeth to boot. Whatever genetic hand a person is dealt, he or she becomes attractive or unattractive because of who they are inside.
I was 22 when I got married, a college student with no money, and nothing particular to look at, as you can see on my profile (just turn the hair back to brown ...). But I was nice. And I see plenty of ordinary-looking young women getting married today, because they’re nice to the men who decide to marry them.
Our campus was pretty equal with men vs. women! Guess I was lucky! lol
My wife and I raised six children from birth to adulthood so I think we have a pretty good idea of the pitfalls and triumphs of raising children.
Yes, we raised them in a Christian home, meaning church every week, youth group, small groups and as well home-schooled them until high-school and pretty much did everything possibly under the sun to keep them on the straight and narrow. Taught them the way to run their lives to glorify the Lord by living out ourselves a healthy and strong cultural values like being married for thirty years, not drinking or smoking. My children have never heard me utter a foul word, never hit my wife, been faithful to the Lord in word and deed.
Are you sitting down because I have some really astounding news for you: Get ready for this for it's a real eyeopener
Every single one of them once having reached adulthood made their own decisions about their life. As their father I could only counsel them and ask them to consider my wise counsel. Believe or not, sometimes they screwed up and made the wrong choices in life.
Of the six, three are still active in church. Once they spring from the home and start making their own decisions in life, the "world" around them has a pull and influence no matter how well they have been brought up.
As for failing them, I take no blame. I gave them all the tools to be successful in life and in cultural, spiritual matters .
What they do with it is up to them
It was better when I was in school -- back in the Jurassic.
Ahhh...but men generally have more $$
until a woman takes it
Why thank you, tax-chick. I laughed out loud at the rotten teeth comment. And off topic: I love looking at your family pictures.
It’s not all gloom and doom on the “woman front”: it’s easy for some, who have been burned I assume, to claim all sorts of stuff about women: they’re *all* easy, they’re *all* after a guy’s money, they’re not interested in families, or my favorite, “I ordered a bride from Mongolia because they look good and know their place”, etc., and it’s kind of sad. Especially when you read this stuff day after day here. Because you look around at the women here, and the women in our lives and think, “Where the heck are these demon spawns these men are talking about?”.
Oh well. My husband will be home soon. Better dim the lights and put a bag on my head...I’m almost 40 you know, and I know my place. ;)
I don't know any of these people, either, as far as I can tell. Well, maybe the crazy cat lady across the street ... she has two ex-husbands ... but she sure isn't getting any money from them, because she just started a waitress job.
Excellent punctuation, btw!
Here is my issue: You know Taylor Swift’s song “You Belong With Me”? That is the story of my life. I’ve had so many male friends who were excellent husband material, but they never take things further and ask me out. Several of them have gone on to marry other women, so it can’t be that they’re afraid of commitment.
on a conservative forum
i would love to see Reagan’s reaction to that bullshit
freepers waxing about X
beam me up Jim
In case you haven't been paying attention, here on FR we've been taking the teachings of arch-leftist Saul Alinsky's "Rules for Radicals" and applying them against the Left. If you're looking for a good reference on guerrilla warfare, it's stupid to leave Mao off your reading list. And if you haven't read the Autobiography of Malcolm X, you should. Towards the end, Malcolm would have been dismissed as an Oreo by the likes of Al Sharpton.
you guys really think going to Mecca redeems anything ?
not for me...makes it worse
it's the same logic that King was a conservative ala Beck...anyone here read what King actually wrote (himself) about Vietnam or Capitalism or what our real heroes of the time had to say about him.
this is where the left really clocked us...the brainwashing of people..especially those under 45 or so in culture and media
you did not allude to X in a reading about the enemy context...that is wholly different
X was a white hating woman abusing racist who just got surprised there were actually white muzzies...so he decided there were at least some whites he could tolerate...funny...the same sorta whites who shot our troops in Germany yesterday after we helped their sorry asses get away from the Serbs....against my wishes btw.
bump for later reading
