It’s Always Something — Part III


When we last left our intrepid magazine women,

For them, a university education is a given, not a privilege. They can travel the world! They can delay motherhood! They can build a social network through the voodoo power of their phones! How can this be so hard?”

Yes, indeed.  Or is it?  These are all luxury goods.  Even the University Education.  How could this be?  Invariably these women get fluffy degrees.  In the past, this might not have been so much of a problem, as universities forces all students to engage in critical thinking.  These days, not so much.  Without that, these “studies” degrees (and the like) have negative net worth.

As for the other aspects mentioned, social networks, smart phones and world travel; how precisely are they adding value to one as a person?

Certainly this age group enjoys the spoils of modern life their parents and grandparents could only dream of. Free entertainment in their back pockets is a given; air travel that costs less than a meal out is how they see the world; cheap clothing means they can dress like a celebrity every day of the week, while cheaper food means few young people today will ever know the taste of corned beef hash.

I kind of like corned beef hash every now and then.  However, it does not have the cache of other delicacies.

Entertainment, travel and fancy clothes are held out as the ideals.  And the modern women do achieve them.  What is wrong with this picture?  Perhaps there is a lack of fulfillment here.  I will leave it at that.

These are things we had to work for. When I was younger I paid for my films and music, I shopped in charity shops; I saw the devastating effect of the 1990s recession on those around me: houses lost, savings obliterated. We were a pretty depressed bunch. I left university with a 2:1 but worked a dead end job for over a year.

Apparently the author had to really work for her luxury goods back in the day, and she did not have as many of them.  And horror of horrors, she had to work a dead-end job for a year.  Many men (and women) do that their entire life.  My Mom did that before she got married.  Most people would would say that was the only type of job my Dad had.

So these magazine women have their fancy degrees.  What good do they do with them?

But doesn’t every generation think they had it worse than the one before? My mother certainly thinks she had it worse than me. She’s a classic Baby Boomer: career, four kids, a nice house…and the sinking feeling that the balls were all going to drop at any moment.

No, every generation does not think that they had it worse than the generation before.  That is mostly a modern problem.  My parents were very happy that the world was much better than their early childhoods in the Great Depression.  And my Grandparents were very grateful for the improvement in their lives over their parents.

I’m sure if my grandmother was alive today she would shake her head and explain that neither of us would ever know how it feels to have lost loved ones in a world war, or known with certainty that your life would never stray beyond the perimeters of motherhood and the small patch of your home town.

Really?  My Mother and Grandmothers were Proverbs 31 women who were industrious.  They did lots of things, inside and outside the house.  They traveled almost as much as their husbands.  I think that were were many other women of those eras that were similar.

    I gave up university as I thought I’m wasting my time. There’s no “critical thinking”, it’s all left wing and the only challenge is marxists forcing the left to go more left. Campus is depressing. I wasn’t studying a fluffy degree, yet the campus was negative. My business was making good profit so I got out of university. Now I’m happy YAY! lol

    =========

    Nope. I think my girls have it much worse than I, *thanks* to feminism, if I were to compare.

    But … shame on her mother for whining about how much better her daughter has it than she. It’s not a competition of generations. My mother always played a version of that bs card with me, and i despise her for it … “Ahhh, Ame! You’re so perfect! I’m sooo jealous! You’ve done everything right! I’m sooo jealous!” You’re so skinny and beautiful! I’m sooo jealous! I couldn’t even have a nice house … or kitchen … without her saying, “Oh, Ame! I have a nice kitchen (she had just remodeled hers), but I like yours better! I’m sooo jealous!” really?

    there’s a subtle jealousy that some mothers have toward their daughters (although my mother wasn’t subtle at all). it usually begins when daughter comes out the other side of adolescence and is more beautiful than mother, or more beautiful than mother’s own perception of her own beauty. so mother has been giving daughter all these things she didn’t have growing up … or maybe she did have them so thinks daughter should, too … then daughter comes out on the other side of puberty with beauty, attracting boys and men that mother is no longer attracting, and mother’s a bit jealous. but she uses daughter to brag to her friends about how wonderful she, oops, her daughter, is b/c of how beautiful and how much she’s accomplished. now mother looks good in her peers’ eyes so therefore she’s such a great momma and her friends pat her on the back and extol her virtues of motherhood. there’s HUGE competition among parents with their/using their kids. many parents do not care what degree daughter gets, they want to brag that daughter went to said school and got a degree. and travelling? woo hoo! mother gets more bragging rights! oh oh oh!!! and who she’s dating and is set up to be able to attract to marry! that’s a BIG one! well, and of course … what kind of job she has.

    i guess i lucked out some … my mother was just thankful i wasn’t on drugs, knocked up before i was married, or in jail/prison. wow. she set the bar high for me … and she was still jealous. what.ever.

    I cannot qualify this at all but….

    It is my theory most generations have it worse then earlier generations. To many people confuse technical gadgets like cellphones for legit economic and stoical capital and don’t really see things clearly. Anyrate one generation sets things up, builds the foundation of social/ economic capital, one generation takes off with then pisses it away leaving the next couple of generations to glide on the left over social/ economic capital for awhile until there is another major break out of one or the other.

    In our case, the left, yankees, jews and the other SJW classes intentionally pissed away both sorts of capital to eek out small advantages over others. I’m 45 and those groups have been pissing on the social/ economic capital of earlier generations before I was born. Anyone younger then me was born into a much worse social situation then I was and should be pissed off about it. Sadly the younger folks are extremely well indoctrinated in all the bullshit that destroys societies…. and yea I am looking at the regular readers here

    Modern source of federal power this is,

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wickard_v._Filburn

    Ohio farmer, Roscoe Filburn, was growing wheat for use to feed animals on his own farm. The U.S. government had established limits on wheat production based on acreage owned by a farmer, in order to stabilize wheat prices and supplies. In 1941 Filburn grew more than the limits permitted and he was ordered to pay a penalty of $117.11. He claimed his wheat was not sold in interstate commerce and so the penalty could not apply to him.The Supreme Court stated “The intended disposition of the crop here involved has not been expressly stated…” and later “Whether the subject of the regulation in question was “production,” “consumption,” or “marketing” is, therefore, not material for purposes of deciding the question of federal power before us […] [b]ut even if appellee’s activity be local and though it may not be regarded as commerce, it may still, whatever its nature, be reached by Congress if it exerts a substantial economic effect on interstate commerce and this irrespective of whether such effect is what might at some earlier time have been defined as ‘direct’ or ‘indirect.'”

    Sometimes US Supreme Court deals in “penumbras” they do

    This case was brought to the Supreme Court in 1973. Norma McCorvey, a Texas woman, alias Jane Roe, filed suit alleging that her rights to choose the direction of her life, and her choice of when or even if to have a child were directly infringed upon by a Texas Law that banned all abortions except those in case of rape, incest or medical need.

    The Court of Appeals decision was based on the Ninth Amendment (Enumeration clause) which states that simply because a right is not explicitly mentioned in the Constitution (such as the right to privacy and the right to decide when and how to have a family) does not mean a person does not have that right. The Appellate court relied heavily on Griswold v. Connecticut for its ruling.

    The opinion was written by Justice Harry Blackmun. Notable for its definition of fundamental rights, the opinion is an expansion of the Supreme Court’s jurisprudence under the Fourteenth Amendment, which, along with Griswold v. Connecticut, sets up spheres of personal activity which the state cannot regulate without good cause.[1] Specifically, the Court held that the Fourteenth Amendment protects implicit rights enumerated in its penumbra, if not the text itself, which includes the right to privacy

    ————————————————

    this is from my pov and my worldview as a christian (https://spawnyspace.wordpress.com/2016/04/02/it-is-always-something-part-ii/#comment-51592).

    i’ve thought about this some as it’s such a broad topic, but i think i can narrow it down some for a starting place:
    – feminism says that girls/women can be and do anything they want, regardless of what it is, who it hurts, or the cost of getting there.
    – feminism says that women are better than men and don’t need anyone, especially men, because they are enough all by themselves.
    – feminism says that males are the root of all our problems, and women are the answers.

    when my oldest was one, i learned quickly that there were going to be a lot of things i’d have to say ‘no’ to, so i decided i wanted to say ‘yes’ to as much as possible. given that, i’m pretty flexible and laid back … except where i’m not. there are some things in our home that are set-in-stone. my girls know that if they try to cross that line, they will not be happy. to that end, they’ve heard a few things a lot over the years.

    they’ve heard a lot that they get to choose how to obey me – the easy way (they do it on their own), or the hard way (i enforce it). they will both tell you they much prefer the easy way. either way, they get to choose.

    another thing they hear a lot is to tell the truth. idc what the truth is, just tell it. i grew up with lies, my ex was smothered in lies, and i won’t do it. just tell the truth. i also tell my girls that there is a truth and a lie, and they get to choose what they believe. they can choose either the truth or the lie, however, what they choose does not change what the truth is … but it will change the consequences of their choices. so choose well.

    so, feminism is based on lies, and when something is based on lies, it sets everything up that’s based on those lies to be done the hard way. it is so seeped into our culture that to separate out the truth from the lie anymore is like separating conjoined twins. it’s almost indistinguishable. so i have to teach my girls the truth, teach them the lies that have permeated all of society, and teach them how to live with the truth in a society of lies. adding to all that, it has seeped into christianity till churches that claim to be bible-teaching-churches don’t even know the difference, and truth is relative.

    so, i teach my girls:
    – life is not fair, just, or equal. get over it.
    – you cannot do anything you want to do, but you can do anything God wants you to do; He designed and created you for a purpose. find that purpose.
    – this life and world are not all about you. get over yourself.
    – your choices affect lots of people. choose well. it’s not all about you.
    – though we are equal in God’s eyes and you will have to answer directly to Him someday, God established authority on this earth, and He did it for good reason. respect and live within that authority.
    – treat men with respect. get rid of any attitude that states otherwise.
    – God lives in community, and He created us in community b/c we need each other. we are not islands. it is good for us to need each other, and it is good for women to need men, not bad.
    – we are all sinners … and Eve at that fruit first. you are no better than men, and men are no better than you. face your own stuff and deal with it. admit your own truth, faults and all, and deal with it. do not blame anyone else for your stuff. it’s yours; own it.
    – filter what you are taught through the bible, including and especially in churches.
    – separate God from church people.
    – the truth will not be popular.
    – be wise as a serpent and gentle as a dove.

(i mentioned this to my step son once, and he said it must be working 🙂 ). and i fly by the seat of my pants a lot of days. i’ve cried a lot, and my sped kid stretches me in ways i never knew one could be. but by the grace of God, i seem to have done some things right … or at least so say my kids. i still have days i feel like i don’t know what the heck i’m doing. but if i teach them that life isn’t fair, just, or equal … and that’s it’s not all about them … and to tell the truth … and to deal w/their own stuff and move on (poor things, they’ve had more opportunities to do that in their short lives) … then i think they’ll be able to function well in society and make a difference in whatever world they’re placed in.

    when they were little, they’d whine that something else wasn’t fair … so i’d tell them to put it on the list. after awhile they’d whine that something wasn’t fair and add in the same breath, “And I don’t wanna put it on the list!” hehe. i don’t blame them; me neither.

    Social media giant Twitter made a shocking decision to defend rapper Azealia Banks’ call for violence—a demonstrable violation of the company’s Terms of Service—against former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, Breitbart News has learned.

    Students in a Tampa middle school were instructed to fill out a form designed to measure how much privilege they have.

    The children were given a form in their Spanish class at Monroe Middle School by teacher Yoselis Ramos titled “How much privilege do you have?”

    The different categories included, “Race”, “Skin Color”, “Religion”, “Sex”, “Gender”, Sexual Orientation”, and “Disability.”

    Parents were not happy about the assignment.

    IT WAS always going to happen – a typo in The Large Hadron Collider that takes the Higgs Boson machine out of Switzerland

    What wasn’t so obvious is that it would be the BBC who would eventually make the gaff.

    Now comes a story out of California, in which a male student (referred to in court documents as John Doe) was expelled for consensual sex because the accuser did not like what other men involved in the group sexual activity did to her. The University of Southern California determined Doe was somehow responsible for preventing and stopping what the other men did, even though his accuser gave no indication she didn’t like the contact. When she finally did show displeasure with the activities, by all accounts, Doe immediately stopped engaging in sexual contact with her and left

    Yoda,
    Twitter just spent their lkast bit of credibility with this Banks/Palin story.

    The typo about the collider in Switzerland wasn’t mine. Honest!

    That story from USC is beyond ridiculous. However, like Columbia, they can afford better lawyers.
