Rules To Live By


Twenty years ago, my sister was engaged to a fella.  He had two daughters, 18 and 19 years old.  My sister got to know them, found out that they were having sex without precautions, and consequently got them on the pill.  There girls were not particularly bright.  They grew up only a few miles from a large country famous for hockey.  When my sister scheduled a holiday over there, the girls were flabbergasted that there a whole different country nearby.  They were that dumb.

So what about these girls?  What should girls like them do?  Should they mindlessly exploit their sexual assets while the exploiting is good?  She they be allowed to bounce around in life like kangaroo in a thumb tack patch (inspired by Choicy)?  Or perhaps they should be given some simple rules and expected to follow them?  There is the question of for their own good.   Is anybody allowed to make such judgements anymore?

Reality has its own rules.  Often one can get away with flouting reality for a while, but it does catch up with you.  My sister broke up with her fiancé, so I never learned what happened to those girls.  I suspect that they did not do well.  If only there was some allowed guidance…

    Excerpt from Ford’s lawyer’s letter in response to Grassley’s deadline of 10 PM this evening [and this is not The Onion]:

    “…The imposition of aggressive and artificial deadlines regarding the date and conditions of any hearing has created tremendous and unwarranted stress on Dr. Ford. Your cavalier treatment of a sexual assault survivor who has been doing her best to cooperate with the committee is completely inappropriate…

    The 10 PM deadline is arbitrary. Its sole purpose is to bully Dr. Ford and deprive her of the ability to make a considered decision that has life-altering implications for her and her family. She has already been forced out of her home, and continues to be subjected to harassment, hate mail, and death threats. Our modest request is that she be given an additional day to make her decision.”

    Note the words that echo the idea of big strong men hurting the little woman: the deadline itself is “aggressive” and the purpose is to “bully” her. Christina Ford (“Dr.” to you) is no longer 15 years old, but the letter implies that that’s her approximate mental and emotional age.

    There’s no acknowledgment, of course, of the fact that Ford set this entire thing in motion, that she has had nearly two months (or more) to prepare and 36 years before that, that she is the one who blindsided Kavanaugh and the Republicans in the Senate rather than the other way around, that they have already given her many extensions, and that Kavanaugh’s family has also experienced incredible stress and death threats as a result of her accusations.

    Most of us have had the experience of arguing with a person like this. Give an inch? They take a mile. Make concessions? They want more. They are the poor suffering victims. They don’t like your tone of voice. They don’t like the expression on your face. If you try to be calm, you’re cold. If you try to be sympathetic, you’re condescending. Nothing you do is okay, and everything they do is okay.

These females must be held accountable for unprovable allegations and sued into bankruptcy. Prosecute these so-called MeToo “victims” and sluts like Ford in court for slander or libel, make it financially costly to accuse publicly without a shred of evidence.

    Riot Police Summoned as Campus Rape ‘Crisis’ Hysteria Reaches Australia

    http://theothermccain.com/2018/09/19/riot-police-summoned-as-campus-rape-crisis-hysteria-reaches-australia/

    ‘You’ll find that the campus protest mobs tend to shop around for “issues” to get agitated about. They’re nothing if not trendy. For example, it would be interesting if someone showed up at a “campus rape crisis” event and asked for a show of hands: “How many of you are vegans? How many of you are into yoga and ‘mindfulness’? How many of you identify as bisexual, asexual, genderqueer and/or ‘nonbinary’?”

    They remind me of what Orwell said about socialism in the 1930s:

    One sometimes gets the impression that the mere words “Socialism” and “Communism” draw towards them with magnetic force every fruit-juice drinker, nudist, sandal-wearer, sex-maniac, Quaker, “Nature Cure” quack, pacifist, and feminist in England.

    What you will discover, if you examine the types of people attracted to the student “activism” scene, is that most of them are abnormal — and deliberately so. These activists disdain normality as boring. They crave the distinction of being seen as different from their peers, whom they contemptuously regard as a herd of mindless conformists. And so they go shopping around for identities and causes, donning them like costumes, in an effort to display their imagined uniqueness. This is how the suburban middle-class white kid ends up as a student radical, protesting for “divestment” from Israel or screaming “fascist” at any campus speaker who represents a discernibly conservative viewpoint.’

    Really we can sum up most of this stuff with three things…

    2) She’s ’empowered’ by feminist nonsense and doing all the necessary steps to stay as far away from being a woman, a helpmate wife, and mother as possible. These include the pill, IG and using other social media devices for thirsty men’s attention, drugs. thrills, Chads and Tyrones, expensive trips and racking up debt, focusing only a career, and getting a dog in order to be a ‘mom’.
    3) Women think they are equal to men in the temporal world

    [anecdote/ blab]
    We had a themed Christmas party a while back (200+ guests which included a lot of politicians and so forth). We wanted to do the Griswold Christmas theme but I saw the look of terror in the protocol lady’s eyes when I suggested it. I mean, dead stuffed cats, squirrels, a half burnt tree and a trailer parked at the curb with a “shitter’s full” sign sounds like a good time to me! At any rate, we went with the Christmas story as the next best thing (protocol approved).
    Turns out, a lot of paraphernalia in the era was REALLY unPC. One of the assistants for protocol got an old magazine cover she mass produced….before noticing there was an ad for the KKK on it. This is the sort of thing the AF Times would send nation wide and Mike most likely would’ve been fired if she hadn’t seen it. Now, if she didn’t respect and admire Mike (she was a black girl) she’d have just distributed it. Wouldn’t matter that Mike had nothing to do with it….THAT is how easy it is to get fucked over. In this case, she switched the photo to something else and reproduced a new set of covers.

    To turn this to Trump….most of the people who know him in real life respect and admire him. Back when I wasn’t sure, during the election run, I friend of mine who was a nurse for one of his relatives told me she saw him every day for a couple of weeks (if memory serves) years prior. She said he was really a great guy, and a family man. She was a big supporter.

    From the sun-blanched beaches of California to the snow-covered cities of New England, a religious fervor is sweeping the United States. PhD-toting preachers spread the faith with righteous zeal, denouncing those who violate its sacred principles.

    In the following article, we will explore this quasi-religion, Wokeness, as a status system that functions predominantly to distinguish white elites from the white masses (whom we will call hoi polloi). It does this by offering a rich signalling vocabulary for traits and possessions such as education, intelligence, openness, leisure, wealth, and cosmopolitanism, all of which educated elites value . . . From this perspective, the preachers of the Great Awokening–those who most ardently and eloquently articulate the principles of Wokeness–obtain status because they (a) signal the possession of desired traits and (b) promulgate a powerful narrative that legitimizes the status disparity between white elites and hoi polloi. The elites, according to these preachers, are morally righteous and therefore deserve status, whereas hoi polloi are morally backward and deserve obloquy and derision.

    Liz makes the general point above (I’m paraphrasing here) that not using words properly is just setting oneself up to be ambushed. Right now, we must use the terms women/men and female/male properly. Otherwise, folks legitimately won’t know what we mean.

    As the Senate Judiciary Committee staff negotiates with attorneys for Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who has accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of a past sexual assault, over a potential hearing on Thursday, Republican staffers are working to interview those who may have information about the alleged incident.

    CNN has learned that the committee has reached out to a longtime friend of Ford named Leland Ingham Keyser.

    On Saturday night, her lawyer, Howard Walsh, released a statement to CNN and the Senate Judiciary Committee..

    “Simply put,” Walsh said, “Ms. Keyser does not know Mr. Kavanaugh and she has no recollection of ever being at a party or gathering where he was present, with, or without, Dr. Ford.”

    The lawyer acknowledged to CNN that Keyser is a lifelong friend of Ford’s.

    Keyser is the latest person alleged to be at the party to say she has no recollection of it.

    “I understand that you have been identified as an individual who was in attendance at a party that occurred circa 1982 described in a recent Washington Post article,” a committee staffer wrote Keyser earlier this week.

    Kavanaugh has vehemently denied the allegations, telling sources he was “flabbergasted” when he learned of them.

    “This is a completely and totally false allegation,” he said after Ford came forward. “I have never done anything like what the accuser describes — to her or to anyone.”

    In addition, two others have issued statements.

    “I have no memory of this alleged incident,” said Mark Judge in a September 18 letter sent to the Senate Judiciary Committee. He said he did not recall the party and never saw Brett Kavanaugh act in the matter Ford describes.

    In addition, Patrick J. Smyth issued a statement. “I understand that I have been identified by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford as the person she remembers as ‘PJ’ who supposedly was present at the party she described in her statements to the Washington Post,” Smyth said in his statement to the Senate Judiciary Committee. “I am issuing this statement today to make it clear to all involved that I have no knowledge of the party in question; nor do I have any knowledge of the allegations of improper conduct she has leveled against Brett Kavanaugh.”

    A father put his 3 year old daughter to bed, told her a story and listened to her prayers which ended by saying:

    “God bless Mommy, God bless Daddy, and God bless Grandma and goodbye Grandpa.”

    The father asked, “Why did you say goodbye Grandpa?”

    The little girl said, “I don’t know, Daddy, it just seemed like the thing to do.”

    The next day grandpa died…!

    The father thought it was a strange coincidence

    A few months later the father put the girl to bed and listened to her prayers which went like this:
    “God bless Mommy, God Bless Daddy and goodbye Grandma”

    The next day the grandmother died…

    “Holy Moly,” thought the father, “this kid is in contact with the other side.”

    Several weeks later when the girl was going to bed the dad heard her say:
    “God bless Mommy and goodbye Daddy.”

    He practically went into shock. He couldn’t sleep all night and got up at the crack of dawn to go to his office.

    He was nervous as a cat all day, had lunch and watched the clock. He figured if he could get by until midnight he would be okay.

    He felt safe in the office, so instead of going home at the end of the day, he stayed there, drinking coffee, looking at his watch and jumping at every sound.

    Finally, midnight arrived, and he breathed a sigh of relief and went home.

    When he got home his wife said: “I’ve never seen you work so late; what’s the matter?”

    He said, “I don’t want to talk about it; I’ve just spent the worst day of my life.”

    She said: “You think you had a bad day, you’ll never believe what happened to me this morning…. My golf pro dropped dead in the middle of my lesson

    Parents of boys must understand the brave new world Democrats are attempting to usher in and the legitimate threats it poses to their sons’ futures – their reputations, college and career prospects, and general welfare.

    Democrats’ instantaneous presumption of guilt for Judge Kavanaugh is setting a new standard for sexual assault allegations wherein they should be accepted simply for having been made. Moreover, the allegations are to be believed, despite lacking any semblance of credible evidence, solely for having been made by a woman.

    Consider Democratic senator Hirono from Hawaii’s recent comments: “Not only do women like Dr. Ford, who bravely come forward, need to be heard, but they need to be believed.”

    Statements like that of Sen. Hirono, of which there have been a plethora, undermine the very nature of our nation’s judicial system and rule of law by placing the burden to disprove the allegations on the accused and, thus, rendering him guilty should he be unable to persuade the mob in the court of public opinion.

    Parents, set aside the partisanship and the hyper-polarization that exist in our modern discourse and consider for a moment if this were your son.

    Ohio State University had terrible luck with U.S. District Judge James Graham over the past few years.

    The day before Donald Trump’s election, the federal judge refused to dismiss the lawsuit against the public university by a student found responsible for sexual .

    It claimed that the student’s hearing panel got “biased training” – dubious statistics about most men admitting to “sexually aggressive behavior” – and administrators hid “exculpatory evidence” from “John Doe,” including the suspicious timing of his accuser’s claim.

    A year and a half later, Judge Graham hit a Title IX official with distressing news: She could be held personally liable for helping the accuser lie to the panel.

    “A reasonable jury could find that Natalie Spiert” (below), a sexual violence support coordinator who served as advocate for “Jane Roe,” “knew or should have known that Jane Roe lied or misled the disciplinary board” and did not correct the record, the judge said in April. . . .

    Spiert’s problems go beyond Graham’s rulings. Ohio State shut down her office, the Sexual Civility and Empowerment unit, and terminated its four employees including Spiert at the end of this school year.

    It had been under internal investigation for two years before the university suspended the office in February, according to The Columbus Dispatch.

    The Ohio Health Sexual Assault Response Network of Central Ohio, known as SARNCO, told the university it had received reports that office staff “have written student conduct and other legal documents” and “told survivors they needed to embellish their stories.”

    Documents reviewed by The Lantern found a “pattern of bullying, preferential treatment and lying” alleged against the office’s leaders, including Spiert, who had the title of assistant director when it closed.

    A former support coordinator, Jill Davis, complained to the human resources office in 2016 that Spiert was “exaggerating her own abilities,” boasting she’d eventually run the office, falsely claiming she had received certain training and ignoring “evidence-based plans in lieu of her own experience” after finishing graduate school in 2015.

    More troubling, Davis said Spiert told athletics coaches in a presentation that she knew they would “go home and beat their wives.”

    Freeland said the new position would promote the Trudeau government’s foreign aid policies for women, which include global funding for abortion. She also noted that the new ambassador will encourage one of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s defense policy goals: increasing the participation of women in international peacekeeping operations.

    So most people are completely protected when they lose. I’d be surprised if she is paying out much more then $50 a month

    So let me be as clear as possible: I believe Christine Blasey Ford and I demand that our Senators vote to reject Brett Kavanaugh as the next Justice on the Supreme Court. Every person who refuses to loudly and openly reject Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination is telling every generation of Americans that an alleged abuser’s career is more valuable than a survivor’s humanity. And the highest court in our land is no place for an alleged sexual offender to sit.

    You’re right Ton.
    I’ve never been taken to court.
    I actually live in fear of being taken to court though…last job I quit because the facility was run so poorly I was certain they’d make me the scapegoat for their negligence. This in spite of the fact I had malpractice insurance. When I started putting all joint property in Mike’s name for said contingency a little light went off…if things are really that bad, did I want to continue to work there? So I left.
    I don’t think most people are cavalier about lawsuits…but I might be wrong.
    Thanks for the down low on real facts of civil litigation though.
    I had no idea.

    “Who said Liz was to shut up for the rest of the day?”

    That was my Swiss side. Speaks in the third person. Angel. Sensible, boring. The side that keeps my OCDs in check before I fall into blabastic abandon!
    Conversation this morning:
    Mike: “You’re good.”
    Me: “really? Er…why?”
    Mike: “Because you’re bad”
    He gets me!!
    (but then, seems Yoda did too….he knew I was telling a fib….maybe I’m just really really predictable?)

    Side note related to the Generalship:
    There’s a lot that can keep a good person from pinning on a star. It’s the rank that requires direct approval from Congress.

    Yes. I’ve been praying for him and his family almost every day.
