Men’s rights activists, gathering to discuss
all the ways society has done them wrong

Washington Post, by Monica Hesse

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 7/1/2014 2:44:07 PM

St. Claire Shores, MI -The feminists hadn’t shown up yet, but they could, at any moment, with their protest signs and screaming. The threat of them was an infuriating and exhilarating specter throughout the weekend, a symbol of the oppression facing the men’s rights activists who had gathered to meet for their inaugural conference. Early Friday before the opening session, a wispy trail of men — mostly white, college-through-retirement-age — waited for the doors to open outside of this Veterans of Foreign Wars outpost in suburban Detroit. One man talked about his ex-wife. A lot of guys talked about their ex-wives.

A lot of snark in the article, female liberal reporter, enough said.

Whaa!!! I´m a victim too! Whaa!

Sitcom´s such as Simpsons and Family Guy, say much more about the kind of woman who would marry a moron, than the moron himself.

#1 you are right. No wonder so many men are sick of women, could you imagine this level of snark should a male reporter slam a NOW convention? Hey they threw Watters out just for being polite and joking around a little.

Look closely at the words she uses. Wispy. Small. Tiny. Juxtaposing a small group against her belief that such concerns are small. Well no, they´re not.

I think its funny that NOWs big convention was at a small Hyatt. Shouldn´t that thing be filling a convention center in a large town? No play from the WaPo on that, however.

The women--and metrosexual males--commenting on the comments area, always a big laugh on that site, should take note.

Men run the world. Simple as that. Always will. Women will never flood the engineering, math, hard science ranks, as they are not interested in it. Simple as that. We can dress it up and say things that are not true, but oh well.

Without men, this entire planet would die within about one year. Without women, men would be lonely but would survive and would likely figure out a way to reproduce externally and continue the population.

I know that sticks heavily in the craw of trash like Monica Hesse, but there it is. No political correctness here.

This past week, my brother broke eight ribs in a terrible fall from his attic. While visiting him in the ICU, he moaned in pain for a split second when they were moving him and the female nurse exclaimed "oh, MEN!!!". I immediately asked her WHY she said that. She just stood there, mouth agape. I told her he had every right to be in pain, and furthermore, she would NOT have ridiculed a woman in the same situation. I am GLAD to hear there´s a group aware of the hateful discrimination towards men, and yes, I will say it, WHITE men.

So, Monica has a "hessey" fit because men have legitimate complaints of unequal/unfair treatment, exclusion, and outright discrimination?
Typical lib. Her feminist issues outweigh any men issues. Besides, it is fun to write snarky, one-sided articles.
Keep telling yourself, Monica, that you got what you have despite being a woman, instead of because you are a woman. Maybe you´ll believe yourself.

No. 4: I wouldn´t be so sure that that nurse wouldn´t have ridiculed a woman. There are quite a few nasty, unsympathetic nurses out there, and some are equal-opportunity nasty. My wife has been on the receiving end of some of their spite.

Poster 6, I wish this were true. She laughed when she made this remark, it was a knee jerk reaction; it was supposed to be funny, she´s probably so brainwashed she doesn´t even realize how offensive it is. I´ve worked and spent many, many hours in hospitals and rehab settings; men are definitely laughed at and ridiculed. There´s no way around it.

#8, just imagine if a man started going on about how they hate when women get bent out of shape about breast cancer. Oh, so you lose a breast, big deal! Not like losing an arm or something important. Stop being a crybaby. Think of all the people who have brain cancer or inoperable cancer. You got off easy!

Imagine that. Heck, if that was mentioned in a PRIVATE conversation it would make news.

Yep, your nurse thinks men are wimps, until one of them gives her a job, a fire fighter saves her kids and her house, a policeman chases off her mugger, a plumber deals with her poopy bathroom back up, a carpenter builds her home, a marine blows away a terrorist planning to come to this country and light off a bomb at her school.

But never mind. They´re all so wimpy.

One area where there men are totally discriminated against is divorce. Why aren´t the NOW harlots screaming for equality in that realm? I´ll bet the rate of divorce would decline greatly if a woman had a 50-50 chance of losing the kids and house.

Men are the HEAD of the family, Women are the HEART of the family.
A man and a woman marry, have children and raise them with love. That is the way it used to be. But that was then, now everything is upside down.

Observing those giant holes in leftard wommyn´s "logic," maybe it´s time men in the west simply become muzzcrazies. Immediately, they would move from the "scum" to the "god" column in the radfem rulebook. Men would all become little Obamas. Anything goes if you´re Obama.

Then, instead of being constantly pilloried for trying to defend western values, men would be given a pass on many things. Western men would no longer have to worry about personal hygiene, or working to support their wives and all the kids [and kidds, too.] Beatings yes, but support? Woman´s work. They could keep their goats anywhere they liked, including the bedroom. They could play with bombs and guns and children as much as they wanted and in any way they wanted, with the quiet support of all western wommyn. The Second Amendment would suddenly become OK amongst the sweaty Birkenstock brigades.

Tired of something, or even nothing at home? Well, just beat everyone up! Beheading is also now your right, don´t forget. Wommyn will support your choices unreservedly.

I am a woman and raised in an enlightened home of equality and equal opportunity. But I will tell you when my younger brother grew to become a young man, I really witnessed the discrimination toward men (in particular white men), in school, work and athletics...all of which he did and has excelled.

Young men literally are being brow beatened to become wimps. Have an active personality - give the boys drugs & label him ADHD, excel in sports - you are a dumb jock, 4.0 GPA in science, math & physics - your are nerd, handsome & wear nice clothes - you are you know what, very affectionate - you are either a rapist or serial sex harasser, quite & sensitive - you are a "mommas boy".

I could go, but you get the point.

There are huge differences between men & women, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Neither one is better or worse, just different. But this incessant badgering to minimize men in so many ways is just sickening.

Frankly, I think most women like a combo (this is just an example) of a little bit of Rambo (macho), Hugh Grant (humor absent the prostitute thing), Cary Grant (humor and ultimate class), Steve Young (moral values, regardless of religion or any), Reagan (leadership ability) and down-to-earth good looks. Oh, wait I just described my boyfriend.

I also agree with prior posters that the sway of this article was very nasty and facisious (sp?)

The two segments of American society most despised by the lefty/libbers are real men and stay at home moms. ...It has been so since the mid to late 1960´s. America´s moral decline can be traced back to that time frame, although other factors from the hippie/dippie daffies & militant lefties of that day certainly also contributed. ...How far down can we go by following such PC Pied Pipers to the edge?!

Hushed, determined Israel
in a war ‘for our home’
Times of Israel, by David Horovitz    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 7/21/2014 3:54:16 PM     Post Reply
There’s a kind of hush over Israel at the moment. The streets are emptier; the cars are honking less; cafes are not deserted but they’re quieter; young kids’ laughter in the little park near our office rings out startlingly loud and carefree. We’re a nation glued to the news — to the TV, the radio, the internet. And it’s almost unremittingly grim. Just a few days ago, we were worrying about hundreds of rockets hitting all over Israel, and shaking our heads at the mini-miracle of Iron Dome intercepting most of them. Now it’s the residents of the kibbutzim and

The Emergency Committee for Israel has just released a statement in response to President Obama´s call for a cease-fire in Gaza."Israel does not need a mediator. Israel needs an ally," reads the statement. "Pressuring Israel to agree to a cease-fire that rescues Hamas from defeat and leaves it in possession of its missiles, tunnels, and terror infrastructure is foolish and wrong. If President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry want to advance the cause of peace in the Middle East, they should support Israel and its campaign to end the terror threat from Gaza."

When asked just how vulnerable former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is to a challenge from her left, the Acela Corridor’s political class is quick to note that 2016 is not 2008. They observe that the factors which made Clinton vulnerable to a challenge from then Sen. Barack Obama in 2008 simply do not exist today. For example, those grounded political reporters say, the former secretary is wildly popular among Democrats. They cite polling data which shows the former secretary leading her most likely challenger – the sitting Vice President of the United States – often by more than 30 points. Finally, they

What Should a ‘Do Something’ Congress Do?

President Barack Obama announced last week that his “big motto” for the United States Congress is “do something.” After winning the presidency with some other “big” slogans, all the president is asking the Congress to do six years later is to “hope” again.(Snip)Congressional Republicans would do well to remind voters of the dangers of a Democratic Congressional majority and avoid all temptations to formulate a me-too Progressive-lite agenda for the fall campaign. But they’ll need to do more in order to stop, much less reverse, the advance of the Progressive leviathan. A good example of what this type of action looks

Clinton Earns $12 Million
Speaking, Writing After Service

Hillary Clinton has earned at least $12 million in 16 months since leaving the State Department, a windfall at odds with her party’s call to shrink the gap between the rich and the poor. Clinton’s income since her resignation as secretary of state in February 2013 is derived mostly from her latest memoir, speeches and paid appearances at corporate retreats, according to an analysis of data compiled by Bloomberg. At least 12 organizations that previously booked President Bill Clinton -- who has been paid almost $106 million in speaking fees alone since he left the White House -- also hired his wife.

Perry to send 1,000 Texas Guard

SAN ANTONIO — Gov. Rick Perry is expected to announce Monday that he will activate up to 1,000 Texas National Guard troops to the Rio Grande Valley, state Sen. Juan “Chuy” Hinojosa, D-McAllen, confirmed Sunday night. Perry wants these troops to bolster the work already being done with a surge of Texas Department of Public Safety troopers, said Hinojosa´s spokeswoman, Jennifer Saenz, who added that the governor gave the Valley legislative delegation notice before the planned 2 p.m. announcement on border security. “The senator understands that Perry wants this troop buildup, but is not sure what kind of federal approval he needs

Illegal Immigration a Winning

Long gone, evidently, are the days when the late, great Sonny Bono, asked for his position on illegal immigration, answered: “My position? What do you mean, my position? It’s illegal!” Still, I have never understood the claim that open borders is a winning political issue for the Democrats. That is borne out in the most recent Rasmussen Reports survey: Most voters don’t want any of the young illegal immigrants who’ve recently arrived here housed in their state and say any legislation passed by Congress to deal with the problem should focus on sending them home as soon as possible.

Just 14 percent described her time at State — she served four years ending in February 2013 — as “excellent,” while 28 percent defined it as “good.” Twenty-one percent called it “fair,” and 32 percent rated her performance “poor.” Six percent weren’t sure or declined to answer.

In December of 2012, speaking in front of a union audience, President Obama was cheered when he claimed that “right-to-work” laws – laws that allow employees to decide for themselves whether to join a union – were all about politics and had nothing to do with economics. In other words, he was advocating for forced unionism. Turns out he was incredibly wrong.(Snip for map)The Competitive Enterprise Institute just released a study analyzing countrywide economic activity from 1977-2012, and here are the key results: Wages – Median income loss per-person is $3,278, or $13,100 for a family of four, in forced-unionism states.

THE PEW Research Center last week released a new survey of American attitudes in the Middle East. The results weren’t surprising. In the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians, 51 percent of Americans say they sympathize more with Israel. Only 14 percent feel greater affinity for the Palestinians. Pew’s findings demonstrate the strength of pro-Israel feeling in the United States. The poll was conducted amid the current fighting with Hamas, but the bottom line hardly changed from Pew’s last survey in April, when it reported that in the 36 years it has been sampling public opinion, “sympathy toward Israel has never

At a political event in Wilmington, Delaware, on Thursday, President Obama devoted only 40 seconds to the shooting down of the Malaysian airline, his first statement to the world following the news. His emotionless reference to the attack as ‘a terrible tragedy’ seemed disconnected from the horrific moment, particularly as he immediately reverted to script to praise his administration and criticise Republicans. It was a far cry from President Reagan’s 1983 fierce denunciation of the Soviet shooting down of a Korean airliner as a ‘crime against humanity’. But it only confirmed the chaos into which US foreign policy has descended since the summer

Convinced that their region has suffered as much Obama administration meddling as it can possibly stand, Israel and Egypt took the extraordinary step earlier this week of jointly rejecting requests by US Secretary of State John Kerry to involve himself in ceasefire talks with the terrorist group Hamas. Israeli and Egyptian diplomats both claim Egyptian efforts to mediate a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas collapsed as a direct result of Secretary Kerry’s announcement he was prepared to join the talks. He apparently made the announcement without first consulting either of the parties. The diplomats are convinced that their own

A pernicious, little-known Obama administration policy – one that that incentivizes adult illegal immigrants to use children as human shields to escape arrest and deportation at the border – largely has escaped the media’s notice. This same policy is driving the historic surge of children at the border, as everyone from coyotes to illegal immigrant adults already in America seeks to use children to guarantee their safe passage into the country, or to protect them from deportation if they are illegally living here. The flood of illegal immigrant children, piling up like human debris on the US border, won’t stop

WASHINGTON— President Barack Obama said Joe Biden would make a "superb" president, but questioned whether his vice president or potential rival Hillary Clinton would want to endure another campaign for the White House, a media report Monday said. Obama, in an interview with the New Yorker, said Biden "has seen the job up close, he knows what the job entails. He understands how to separate what´s really important from what´s less important. I think he´s got great people skills. He enjoys politics, and he´s got important relationships up on the Hill (in Congress) that would serve him well." "Joe would

LOS ANGELES — Actor James Garner, whose whimsical style in the 1950s TV Western “Maverick” led to a stellar career in TV and films such as “The Rockford Files” and his Oscar-nominated “Murphy’s Romance,” has died, police said. He was 86. He was found dead of natural causes at his home in the Brentwood area of Los Angeles Saturday evening, Los Angeles police officer Alonzo Iniquez said early Sunday. Police responded to a call around 8 p.m. PDT and confirmed Garner’s identity from family members, Iniquez told The Associated Press. There was no immediate word on a more specific cause of death. Garner had suffered a stroke in May 2008, just weeks after his 80th birthday.
