Some women are striking from
smiling today. Here’s why.

Washington Post, by Michael Alison Chandler

Original Article

Posted By:danvillebill, 3/8/2017 1:10:04 PM

The “Day Without a Woman” strike on Wednesday may mean a day with fewer smiles. While not every one plans to skip work, many who want to show solidarity with the growing feminist movement said they plan to strike from unpaid work that women disproportionately do, including cooking, cleaning and, some said, smiling. More specifically, fake smiling. Some feminists say the happy face they sport by habit — or on command — is a form of unpaid “emotional labor.”

Comments:
I am crushed to learn that after those rare times when a woman smiled at me it was not because she thought I was strikingly handsome...instead she was forced to smile out of a sense of duty under the duress of ´emotional labor´.
And yes, the androgynously named author is, at least currently, a female.

Truth be told, they´re the same ones who never crack a smile anyway.

It´s a fake smile because feminists have no joy.

I´m organizing a ´World-Wide Month Without Plumbers´ strike for mid August.

During this time we will be holding our Plumbing-Heating & Cooling Awards Ceremonies.

Emergency calls will be taken in order of receipt and dealt with after the conclusion of the after-parties.

BTW---Only Plumbers can solve the transgender bathroom problem. Think about it and get out your check books.

See ya in September !

There are people who spend years in 12 Step programs learning how to put themselves last in gracious service to others. The Marine Corps insists that officers eat last to make sure their military "family" is taken care of first. I consider it an honor to bring a sense of joy and respect for others into my day. And I don´t pay any attention to the selfish misfits who hide behind the mantle of "feminist."

More silliness from the leftists at the Post.The marches are funded and organized by multiple Soros groups and led by the worst sort of anti-Americans.

I feel sorry for the women who have been taken in by individuals who are so opposed to everything that´s great about this Country.

I can´t help but noticing the huge numbers of teachers who are participating (and causing havoc for thousands of the working women whose schools must close for the day). I wonder if the teachers unions not only encouraged teachers´ participation, but even offered them stipends, transportation and free lunches in exchange for agreeing to participate, as that´s often the case.

The protesters will indubitably leave behind huge piles of garbage wherever they protest. That´s another constant feature of leftists´ demonstrations.

#14, is that a feminist movement that´s increasing in numbers? A movement for feminists who are growing in size? Or maybe an increase in the movement of feminists? My parser is experiencing difficulties processing that phrase.

Either way, though, I don´t think any among them are smiling.

My wife describes herself as a "housewife" and cooks once in a while, cleans very little, and does the dishes and laundry. I wouldn´t say that she is unpaid. She has a roof over her head, a bed to sleep in, and gets to eat whatever she wants. She doesn´t want to drive or work outside the home. It´s her "choice."

Fine with me. I don´t always enjoy getting up with the alarm clock and going to work, but it beats sitting around the house and being poor. When can I go on strike? Nothing would get fixed around here, no shopping done, no paycheck. My wife certainly doesn´t smile unless she feels like it... which isn´t often. She´s an old grouch. I´ll put up with it for her, but all these other people whining, bitching and moaning about their lives is getting old. Not my problem.

I am a conservative woman. I smile often -- especially since January when our 8 year national disaster finally came to an end!!!

I smile at my husband, because I love him and he makes me happy. I smile at my sons, because they are good boys and men and make me proud. I smile at my preacher at church because he preaches from the word of God.

I´m guessing it´s only miserable liberal women who have to fake smiles (and probably fake other things too...)

Tom Cotton Nails It On The AHCA
Powerline, by Paul Mirengoff    Original Article
Posted By: danvillebill- 3/22/2017 4:41:10     Post Reply
Sen. Tom Cotton announced today that he will not vote for the American Health Care Act in its present form. He released the following statement: "Despite the proposed amendments, I still cannot support the House health-care bill, nor would it pass the Senate. The amendments improve the Medicaid reforms in the original bill, but do little to address the core problem of Obamacare: rising premiums and deductibles, which are making insurance unaffordable for too many Arkansans. The House should continue its work on this bill. It’s more important to finally get health-care reform right than to get it fast."

Almost a year to the day she announced her last bid for federal office, Nevada Republican Sharron Angle on Tuesday announced a primary challenge to GOP Rep. Mark Amodei in the 2nd District. The 2010 Senate nominee ran for Senate again last year, losing to former Rep. Joe Heck in the GOP primary, 65 to 23 percent. The tea party favorite previously ran for the 2nd District when it was held by now Sen. Dean Heller. “The reality is the President can lead, but he cannot do it alone," Angle said in making her announcement.

Headlines about “the end of the republic” litter political commentary across the political landscape. They usually mark the beginning of a discussion of the merits of Donald Trump as president of the United States, but his ascendency is not the leading sign of a collapse of American society. For that, see a recent poll indicating a tectonic shift occurring in the political preferences of U.S. adults. When you consider current trends in cultural norms and widely held beliefs, you will see that we are headed toward the end of the American experiment.

I continue to worry about Steve Bannon. I see him in the White House photos, but he never has that sprightly Prince of Darkness gleam in his eye anymore. His governing philosophy is being completely gutted by the mice around him. He seems to have a big influence on Trump speeches but zero influence on recent Trump policies. I’m beginning to fear that he’s spending his days sitting along the wall in the Roosevelt Room morosely playing one of those Risk-style global empire video games on his smartphone.

Several key Republicans on Friday endorsed the health care overhaul bill crafted by GOP leaders and the White House, saying President Donald Trump had agreed to changes they favored minutes earlier during an Oval Office meeting. With a vote on the so-called American Health Care Act scheduled for this coming Thursday in the House, the news was welcomed by supporters of repealing and replacing the 2010 health care law. Just over a dozen Republican Study Committee members told reporters outside the West Wing that leadership of the conservative caucus is now a “positive yes” after the president signed off on

The latest poll by USA Today and Suffolk University carried some eye-opening numbers about public disapproval of the media´s aggressive attempts to run the country. It found that President Trump has a 47% approval rating and that 44% disapprove of him. That´s not surprising. The media talk about his unpopularity all the time. But here´s what they don´t talk about: their own numbers. Only 37% of Americans have a favorable opinion of their job performance. A whopping 50% have an unfavorable opinion.

Most Americans are worried about our domestic crises. Obama left office after doubling the debt to $20 trillion. Near-zero interest rates over eight years have impoverished an entire generation of seniors — and yet remain key to servicing the costs of such reckless borrowing. Over the last eight years, GDP never grew at 3 percent annually, the first time we’ve seen such low growth since the Hoover administration. Obamacare spiked health-care premiums and deductibles while restricting access and reducing patient choices.

Polarize” is a funny word. I hear it all the time, including from my own mouth. The country is polarized. The parties are polarized. President Trump is polarizing. I think that’s true, but I don’t think the word means what people think it means. First, let’s go to the dictionary. Merriam-Webster offers three definitions, the first two scientific and then this: “to break up into opposing factions or groupings, (e.g.) a campaign that polarized the electorate.” That looks right to me. But when people hear the word “polarized,” they think it means something like “the maximum distance” apart from each

In Monday’s Morning Jolt, Jim Geraghty usefully outlined some intriguing statements made by former Obama national intelligence director James Clapper regarding the FISA surveillance controversy. Clapper’s remarks, in an interview by NBC’s Chuck Todd on Meet the Press on Sunday, are being taken as a blanket denial of the allegations that the Obama administration used the Justice Department and FBI to investigate Trump-campaign figures, potentially including Trump himself.

The unstoppable force of Republican promises to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act ran headfirst Tuesday into the immovable object that is conservative objections to key tenets of the legislation. Which side gives ground in the coming days could determine whether the GOP succeeds in its long-standing goal to overhaul the health care system. The stalemate, one day after Republicans released their long-awaited plan, quickly put the future of the legislation on shaky ground. Speaker Paul Ryan guaranteed his party would have the votes to pass the plan, while conservative lawmakers insisted that they have the votes in both the

"Obviously, there is a lot of information coming out of Washington and although we are not the enemy of the people, we welcome the deregulations that are going on there."

Is a guaranteed paycheck from the government, with no strings attached, the answer to the relentless rise of automation? The concept might sound far-fetched, but a so-called universal basic income (UBI), is currently one of the most hotly debated policy topics being floated as a means to address income inequality and the disruption that technology poses to the workforce. UBI is being tested in Finland and other international markets, but has received decidedly mixed reactions. Meanwhile, developments in robotics and artificial intelligence have grave implications for the labor force. A report issued this week from consulting firm PwC found that

House Speaker Paul Ryan didn’t just step in it again, big time, on the Ryancare bill this week.

It is hard to overestimate the damage the Freedom Caucus has done to the fledgling presidency of Donald Trump, and to the country. By blocking the American Health Care Act of 2017, the conservative group has guaranteed that Americans will struggle forward under the burden of Obamacare. In the next few months insurers will announce their premium hikes for the coming year; chances are, given the continuing withdrawal of major companies from the marketplaces and the ongoing failure of the bill to attract enough young and healthy participants, the new rates will not be pretty. Last year premiums went up

The first cocktail party at Barack Obama’s new office last month was certainly more casual than any he had hosted in recent years. The wine bore a random assortment of labels, as if assembled potluck-style. The self-serve appetizers were set out in the narrow hallway. The host, tieless, eschewed formal remarks, as a few dozen of his old administration officials — Joe Biden and former chief of staff Denis McDonough, as well as more junior ones — mingled in a minimalist wood-paneled suite that could be mistaken for a boutique law firm. “It was a bit of a shock to

Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer said Sunday that Democrats are ready to work with President Trump to fix Obamacare if Republicans abandon their drive to repeal the law. The New York Democrat made the offer in the wake of Friday’s decision by Mr. Trump and House Speaker Paul D. Ryan to pull the GOP bill to repeal and replace Obamacare, also known as the Affordable Care Act or ACA. The bill lacked enough Republican support to pass, including many defectors among conservatives. Democrats formed a united front against the effort. “We Democrats, provided our Republican colleagues drop [repeal and

The working assumption was that the perpetrator of the driving and stabbing attacks that left four victims dead and dozens more injured was a Muslim before the assailant was even identified. (Snip) Masood´s identity was not revealed until about 24 hours after the attack, right around when ISIS claimed responsibility for it.
