    3 Doors Down frontman Brad Arnold recently stopped singing mid-performance to kick out a male fan for hitting a woman in the audience during the band's July 14 concert in Broomfield, Colorado according to a Friday, July 17 report from Mashable. Brad Arnold spotted the man being abusive to the female in the audience and went off on the man. “Hang on, hang on, hang on. Hey, hey homie. You don’t hit a woman,” Arnold yelled to the man. “You just pushed a woman out of the way to get in a fight, you d**k! Get him the hell out...

    Virtue: A habitual and firm disposition to do the good. Cardinal virtues are prudence, justice, fortitude, and temperance. Traditional male virtues are strength, courage, independence, heroism in combat, and sexual initiative. For many years, Jesus has been portrayed as a Galilean flower child, walking around the countryside being nice, preaching love and peace, and having a thing for Mary Magdalene. Somehow, this easygoing hippie runs afoul of the corrupt power structure, and ends up dying with career criminals, under horrible circumstances. Of course, even a casual reading of the Gospels reveals something far different. If anything, Jesus is a confrontational,...
  • Allen West to FAU Students: This Is Your Final Warning

    04/17/2013 6:31:53 PM PDT · by markomalley · 24 replies
    Former congressman Allen West (R., Fla.) posted a message on Facebook Wednesday warning a group of students from Florida Atlantic University that if they continue to harass his wife “you will face me.”“The students from Florida Atlantic University who have gone to my wife’s office, stalked her at the FAU Board of Trustee meetings, and sent letters to her company headquarters, end it now,” West wrote in his message, posted at 11:21 a.m. “This is not a threat, it is a promise that if Angela calls and tells me of one more incident, you will face me, the side of...

    The code persists despite feminists’ best efforts. Chivalry is back in the news. The always alert Charles Murray of the American Enterprise Institute draws our attention to an item in the Psychology of Women Quarterly. A new study on what the authors are pleased to call “benevolent sexism” (which, as Murray translates, seems to mean gentlemanly behavior) found that both women and men are happier when men behave like gentlemen. This being a sociological publication, though, the findings are not written in English, but rather in academic argot. It’s full of sentences like this: “A structural equation model revealed that...

    An auctioneer has hired experts to try to verify claims by the owner of the century old instrument that it belonged to Wallace Hartley, the leader of the vessel’s eight-man musical ensemble. If proved, it could become the most valuable Titanic artefact ever to be considered for auction. But the claim is being treated with caution as a result. Hartley and his fellow musicians earned legendary status for their decision to play on as the ship sank on its maiden voyage on April 15, 1912. They are said to have played the hymn “Nearer My God to Thee” after the...

    Feminists may insist that life for women has gotten better since the days when raucous female activists marched in the streets for equality and questioned traditional social mores... Pollsters say otherwise. Things are out of kilter. And pretty dismal, according to a Harris Poll released Monday. Eight out of 10 Americans, in fact, say, "Women today are treated with less chivalry than in the past."

    The Art of Manliness ^ | 2 December 2008 | Sean Platt
    "Whenever I’m watching a movie that hearkens back to a sepia tinted yesteryear, it isn’t the simpler times I long for so much as a return to the distant days when a man rose alongside the sunrise and was expected to give the daylight his best. Clothes were sharper, adolescence shorter, and the word man still deserving of the first spot in the word manners. Now it seems as if there is something *missing, something stripped from today’s men, besides their buttons and blazers . . ." ~ Sean Platt

    Becoming a successful man in America today, as always, includes giving due consideration to your father’s admonitions and wisdom. For the most part, your father is wiser than you are—and he always will be. Wisdom comes chiefly through getting older. Since your father will always be older than you, he will always be wiser. Men should also read the words and deeds of great men of the past—especially fathers. One such example is that great Virginian, Robert E. Lee.

    If I were the last man on the planet to think so, I would want the honor of saying no woman should go before me into combat to defend my country. A man who endorses women in combat is not pro-woman; he’s a wimp. He should be ashamed. For most of history, in most cultures, he would have been utterly scorned as a coward to promote such an idea. Part of the meaning of manhood as God created us is the sense of responsibility for the safety and welfare of our women. Back in the seventies, when I taught in...
  • CARTOONS and QUOTES: FEM-INEM-ISM

    FEMINEMISM:  The misogynistic and pornographic degradation of women in popular culture begot by the promotion of sexual liberation as a form of free expression. But the feminist leaders of Kate Michelman's generation, still painfully peddling sexual liberation as a path to empowerment for women, have never accepted responsibility for the carnage that has been unleashed in feminism's name. http://www.townhall.com/columnists/MaggieGallagher Levy also sees raunch culture as rooted in the history of feminism. Raunch culture doesn't just signify that feminism is far from winning all its battles. It's also an expression of the failure of sexual liberation. http://www.sptimes.com The sharpest irony of...
  • ***The OFFICIAL Weekend Singles Thread*** Oct 19-21, 2007 - Chivalry, Gallantry and Manhood

    10/19/2007 4:22:09 PM PDT · by DaveLoneRanger · 92 replies · 196+ views
    Welcome to the Singles Thread! Good evening. This weekend's proposed topic of discussion is chivalry, or, using the title I didn't have room for, "the proper behavior of men, and how they should treat women."Random House (Unabridged) defines chivalry as "the sum of the ideal qualifications of a knight, including courtesy, generosity, valor, and dexterity in arms." The American Heritage Dictionary defines it as "The qualities idealized by knighthood, such as bravery, courtesy, honor, and gallantry toward women." The word comes from Old French chevalerie which meant "horsemanship," coming originally from the word caballus which we get words like...

    My son who is in the Coast Guard, was in Boston Saturday when his Cutter pulled in and was out with some of the crew doing bar hopping. He steps outside and down an ally to make a cell phone call. Two older ladies (his mom's age) were in the ally taking a smoke break. A "bum" walks in to the ally leans his back against the wall and starts to relive himself. My son then suggests the ladies leave the ally and then he goes back and gives the guy the riot act (using sailor's language) over his behavior....

But her son clung to her leg. He cried and held tight...T.J. was 9, her oldest child, and although eight months had passed since she had returned from the war zone, he was still upset by anything that reminded him of her deployment... The faraway move to live with his grandmother. The months that...

    Here is a light-hearted Saturday story of chivalry with a dash of comedy.Japanese TV reported this story today. Here is the video clip.It seems a young Japanese lady, minding her own business, became the target of a sexual harasser (so-called "chikan") at an underground stairway in a Tokyo subway station.Just as the women was being accosted by the perp, it happened that too rather beefy, young, sumo wrestlers were passing by. Great timing.Needless to say, they made 'chanko nabe' of that little pervert in no time at all, grabbing a hold of him, getting him in a headlock, and...
