The War on Men
FoxNews.com, by Suzanne Venker

Original Article

Posted By:ruready?, 11/24/2012 9:03:23 PM

The battle of the sexes is alive and well. According to Pew Research Center, the share of women ages eighteen to thirty-four that say having a successful marriage is one of the most important things in their lives rose nine percentage points since 1997 – from 28 percent to 37 percent. For men, the opposite occurred. The share voicing this opinion dropped, from 35 percent to 29 percent.

Comments:
Maybe the problem is feminism. My vote is on government handouts.

These days when a man gets married he can only lose. The courts are against him, his word is worthless, and he ends up losing half of all he owns and then pays alimony (oh wait they call it ´child support´ now, but it´s really still alimony) for the rest of his life.
Women really only look at marriage as a way to get things, they really don´t care much about the men they marry in most cases.

The fertility rate for American white girls is getting down close to 1.0 (replacement is 2.1). And for these girls (women?) BMWs, shopping, lunching and sweat-soaked sports bras are way more important than babies, a family, and a devoted man.

It´s the domestic relations courts with their grossly unfair divorce decrees that have made men unwilling to get married.

You see, to dislike a woman/girl for being a feminist, you´d have to interact fairly deeply with a few first. Never happened in many cases. Games. Porn. Internet. Junk Food.

Back in 2003 a columnist named voxday wrote a column titled,"Spiting Their Pretty Faces" which is an excellent explanation of this matter. I believe he did a much better job then, than Suzanne did today.
Occasionally I´ve wondered if voxpopoli is his username on Lucianne.

Reading this reminds me what a bubble I live in. Our large family goes to a nice "old school" evangelical church. Men are dedicated to their wives and the wives defer to their husband´s headship. Everybody seems pretty happy.

I think itbis a combination of what everyone here said. Yes, feminism is a big problem. I even see my old best friend (who is my age, 50), who still repeats the same silly things like women are still second class citizens and we are paid less and ...all the same stuff we heard growing up in the 70´s. I have to admit, I went through my phase of "hating" men for a while. Part of the reason was all the guys I evee met just wanted one thing and I wasn´t going to give it like that. The sexual revolution destroyed romance and courting. It seemed that every guy wanted to jump in the sack on the first date anymore. No respect. That´s from looser morals in society and the hollywood effect. That, with more porno and now we have video games and the slacker mentality to make it all worse. Govt & media have manipulated people into thinking they don´t need to be responsible too. Btw, child support is no longer just a man´s burden. My good friend was forced to pay child support to her deadbeat husband.

Here´s the link to Vox Day´s column.

He´s a fairly interesting character in his own right. Libertarian, sci-fi author, runs a couple of blogs, expat living in Italy.

I´ve found him refreshing, and enjoy his blogs. He runs one called Alpha Game that explains male/female interactions in detail. Take a look at his writings and decide for yourself.

If you are a modern man, why bother to commit when you can get the benefits for free, without the risk of being taken to the cleaners. Any men who gets financially involved with a woman for any reason may as well bid his future financial freedom and security good bye. It starts at a minimum of 50% and there is no top limit, all sanctioned by the legal system of course..

Mrs. Southron:

Didn´t they refer to this as the "Bimbo Factor" when it came to these females as voters in the last election?

My husband looks the other way whenever he sees some of these admittedly gorgeous babes coming his way. He stated that he "never has seen a generation of young women so completely dedicated to their looks: implants, fake tans, sexy outfits, expensive nails...and they don´t any of them seem to have any real intelligence, morals or common sense." - I agree.

What will their futures be like as they age? And what about their male counterparts that can only talk sports and TV, etc.?

I can just see a future with hordes of aging airheads in their ´golden years´ sitting in the nursing homes with nothing to reminisce about but old TV shows, shopping sprees or even guys they "hooked up" with. Mindless aging robots with sagging implants.

Louisiana state senator worries
strengthened cockfighting law
would outlaw ´chicken boxing´
Times-Picayune [New Orleans, LA], by Emily Lane    Original Article
Posted By: ruready?- 4/1/2014 5:20:10 PM     Post Reply
At a Glance: The current cockfighting law contains language that makes it difficult to enforce because it specifies a certain species of chicken. Proposed legislation would fix the loophole by expanding it to include any kind of foul forced into fighting for sport. It also increases penalties by putting them on par with dog fighting. The Louisiana Senate Judiciary C Committee advanced the bill Tuesday (April 1), but not without some debate from a St. Landry Parish lawmaker about ramifications of the proposed law revisions on a sport he called "chicken boxing." The bill: Senate Bill 523, sponsored by Sen.

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal confirmed he is considering running for president in 2016, during an interview with the Heritage Foundation during its annual Resource Bank meeting in New Orleans. "It´s something we´re thinking about. It´s something we´ll pray about. But...we have to win the war of ideas first," Jindal told Genevieve Wood of Heritage´s The Foundry, a right-leaning news service, during the meeting this past week. "We´ve got to win the elections in 2014. And after we do that, we´re certainly giving it some thought.

´What the hell is this, a joke?´

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Wednesday blasted the Obama administration’s decision to extend enrollment in the healthcare law’s insurance exchange for some people. “What the hell is this, a joke?” Boehner said at his weekly press conference. He was responding to the administration’s announcement on Tuesday evening that people who had begun the process of signing up for insurance through the federal exchanges would have until mid-April to do so, instead of March 31. The Speaker called the move “another deadline made meaningless,” adding it to a litany of unilateral changes to the law that the administration has made.

If the conservative insurgency has been crushed, why was Mitch McConnell walking around onstage at CPAC with a musket? He couldn’t have sucked up to the right any harder if he wore a tri-corner hat and had the Gadsden flag tattooed on his rear. The death of the conservative revolution, the Tea Party, or whatever you call it, has not merely been greatly exaggerated. It’s been flat-out lied about. It isn’t dead. It just changed, from a shoestring operation to one with real clout. And it’s well on its way to doing what it set out to do – arm-twist

Louisiana is suing national left-leaning policy group MoveOn.org in federal court, saying it violated copyright law when it put up a billboard and commissioned video ads critical of Gov. Bobby Jindal that use the state´s tourism logo and motto. Republican Lt. Gov. Jay Dardenne has been locked in a pitched battle with the group for weeks, unsuccessfully calling for it to take down the billboard that is currently up on the I-10 coming into Baton Rouge from Port Allen. We have invested millions of dollars in identifying the Louisiana: Pick Your Passion brand with all that is good about Louisiana.

Hector Gallegos sits in the cab of his pick-up enjoying a few hours of calm. A day earlier, workers finished carting off the huge rig that had drilled three new wells beneath this small patch of south Texas farmland and he’s now getting ready to prime them for production. He reckons that about three weeks from now each will be producing 1,000 to 2,000 barrels a day. “That’s money!” he exclaims with a broad smile. It’s also power, and not in the combustion sense. Thanks to the success of engineers like Mr Gallegos in pushing the frontiers of hydraulic fracturing,

Central European nations are now appealing to Capitol Hill leaders to get the United States to increase its natural gas exports should Russia cut off its supply to Ukraine, amid the political turmoil in that country. Hungary, Poland, Slovakia and the Czech Republic sent a letter Friday to House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio. And a similar letter is expected to be sent to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nevada. Ambassadors from the four countries -- known as the Visegrad Group -- want Congress to support faster approval of natural gas exports, arguing the supply is essential to the region’s economic

Replicating that winning formula could depend on what matters more to voters: Landrieu's growing ability to help Louisiana's oil and gas industry through her recent promotion to chairwoman of the Senate Energy and National Resources Committee or her unapologetic vote for

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – President Obama compared the Republican budget plan to a "stinkburger" or "meanwich" during a speech here Wednesday, using a series of zingers in an attempt to strike a contrast with the GOP on economic issues in an election year. In a speech to an enthusiastic crowd of 1,400 at the University of Michigan, Obama repeatedly mocked Republican ideas about how to improve the economy, as he touted his own proposal to raise the minimum wage. Obama, who visited the local Zingerman´s deli before the speech, said that Republican proposals to cut taxes for wealthier Americans and

Sources on the ground in Benghazi during the 2012 terror attack are pushing back hard on former CIA acting director Mike Morell´s testimony on Capitol Hill, where he defended his role in shaping the administration´s narrative and claimed politics were not involved. As part of Morell´s testimony on Wednesday, the former acting and deputy CIA director acknowledged that he overruled the guidance of the top CIA officer in Libya at the time. That official told Morell the attack was not an "escalation of protests," but Morell said he had to weigh that against analysts who concluded the opposite. He ultimately went

Big changes could be just down the road for North Carolina drivers. A proposal is in the works that would change the state tax system to charge drivers by the mile, instead of at the gas pump.The proposal would be to charge a half cent per mile for cars, which would generate almost $500 million in annual state revenue. A driver who travelled 15,000 miles in a year would pay about $75. "Basically you pay per the mile.

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000. Moran believes that this is the wrong way to go, not necessarily talking about himself in particular, but saying there

5 Reasons Why Republicans

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.

The human kindling that makes up the flammable Republican base may soon burst into flames, again. Portions of that excitable cohort are looking — some with fawn-like eyes filled with hurt, others with sparks shooting from eyes narrowed like gun slits — askance at other Republicans urging Jeb Bush to seek the 2016 presidential nomination. A candidacy by Florida’s former governor would be desirable. But if Republicans want to avoid intra-party carnage, they should be very careful about doing what The Post recently reported: “Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft

Sarah Palin continues to act in ways that confirm some of the more negative things said about her. For example, she’s taken to Facebook to attack the most recent budget plan by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan.(Snip)Whatever differences Ms. Palin may have with the Ryan plan–and perhaps she’ll take the time to offer an actual critique of if rather than a Facebook entry with lots of upper case words–it’s hardly a joke. But what might elicit a roll of the eyes is comparing Ms. Palin’s views now versus what they were nearly four years ago. Consider this: On December
