Hazardous To Your Health (Mental and Physical)


From here, (improved link)

Today’s left lacks worthy menaces to fight. It is driven to find a replacement for racism, some sweeping historical wrongdoing that morally empowers those who oppose it. (Climate change?) Failing this, only hatred is left.

Hatred is a transformative power. It can make the innocuous into the menacing. So it has become a weapon of choice. The left has used hate to transform President Trump into a symbol of the new racism, not a flawed president but a systemic evil. And he must be opposed as one opposes racism, with a scorched-earth absolutism.

I have wondered what it would be like to be a Feminist/SJW/Whatever.  To build your life around one very narrow notion, to ascribe to that notion superiority; implying your own superiority.  Requiring little more from a person than enthusiasm (nothing like sacrifice or self-reflection required), it seemingly offers a simple ideal path.

But does it?  There is the need to maintain enthusiasm.  Since whatever the latest cause is make no sense when considered logically, there is a pressing need to compensate.  The simplest manner to do so is through getting mad.  Over the long haul it can be difficult to maintain the madness, required the group to effectively administer booster shots to each other.

So what might the long term effects of living such a life?  There is, of course, physical stress on the body.  This is not good.  There is also the mental issues that arise from twisting your mind into knots.  And then there is one last thought; who really wants to go through life mad about / hating everything?

    I came across this article earlier, and it makes for an apt analogy.
    https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/anger-in-the-age-entitlement/201809/complaints-vs-contempt

    “In general, the difference between complaints and contempt is that the former are about behavior, the latter is about character. In complaints you identify certain behaviors as problems for you; contempt identifies the character or personality of your partner as the problem.

    When you frame the problem as the character of your partner, rather than the way you interact, change requires one or both of you to sell out the sense of self, rather than merely modify behavior. The path to contempt is inevitable when one or both partners feel it necessary to sell out the self to keep the peace.

    I would say this dynamic not only applies for relationships, but also between political divides.

    The current feminist movement has become a cult of angry miserable women recruited by the guru of man hating misery Hillary Clinton. There are certain predisposing factors that facilitate recruitment into cults. These factors typically include: a desire to belong, impaired capacity for critical thinking, disillusionment, dissatisfaction, idealism, lack of self-confidence and a desire for meaning in one’s life. Thousands of vulnerable unhappy women were ripe for recruitment into the cult of women activists. Now thoroughly indoctrinated in anti-Trump hatred they have been brainwashed, organized and unleashed on the public. Their goal is to destroy the Trump administration, their strategy is resistance and their tactics are accusation, disinformation, and extortion. Christine Blasey Ford’s attempt to politically assassinate Kavanaugh can be likened to the Manson cult followers who were sent out to start ‘Helter Skelter’, an apocalyptic race war initiated by murdering influential white people.

    Kavanaugh isn’t the doppelganger of every prep-school predator or fraternity rapist. He isn’t a stand-in for every privileged white man who ever got away with something he shouldn’t have; he is not the distilled essence of the patriarchy. He’s an individual, not a stock character, one accused of a very specific act.

    In assessing whether Kavanaugh is guilty of that act, we of course consider his character. But we should not automatically ascribe to him the character of other white men, prep-school boys, high-school athletes, fraternity brothers, Catholics, pro-lifers, conservatives or lawyers we have known.

    No good cause, however just, requires the ritual scapegoating of members of a despised class as an atonement for the sins of the others

  28. The interesting thing about the accusations is that they have opened up the dialog about false allegations. The poundmetoo movement may just shift the Overton window in the direction that NOT every allegation be automatically taken as fact. That sometimes women can make things up for ill motive or to cover their own bad choices. (I slept w him to get the part but now that I am famous and don’t need him I regret it or I made poor choices and was a drunken tramp and regret it.) It’s actually a possibly very good thing, as distressing as it is.

    New reports say the judges mom has found calendars from that summer showing he was not even in town during the timeframe he’s being accused.

    Maybe people will return to the innocent until proven guilty vs trial by public opinion model? Let’s hope so! Perhaps in not so long the sjw will become something regarded with mockery, horror and shame. MAGA. Let’s hope so!

    ‘Our current state of affairs is because most men are letting the women around them run them.’

    In the current state of affairs men are being run by women’s feelz most of the time instead of God’s will…doesn’t matter how alpha or beta they are.

    This is most notable in the sexual arena. Whether it would be no rebuking for them fornicating or no rebuking for them denying their husband in marriage.

    The article also stated this:

    ‘But in our “sexually liberated” culture, hypergamy simply means securing the best genes from a man and then finding an alternative source of provision (e.g. welfare or a beta male.) This strategy can accurately be termed as “fucking up.”

    This second scenario is commonly called “open hypergamy.” It’s a woman’s hypergamous nature without restraint. And it’s not good for society.

    It’s not good for women, who end up leading miserable lives as single mothers or get “stuck” in a sexually unfulfilling marriage with a beta male.

    It’s not good for the majority of men, who become involuntary celibates (“incels”).

    It’s not even good for the alpha males, as successful pick up artists soon find that an abundance of sex without meaningful context only creates disillusionment and ruins their ability to find satisfaction in a long-term relationship.’

    (Let’s agree that not every wife is going to say that. This is an example.)

    In todays legal climate, you will either do as she says or you will live without your child. Either choice has been dictated by your wife’s emotions.

    We have to understand that this is a reality so that we can then say – OK, what do we need to do to create a create a third option. But – even then – the need to develop that third option is being driven by your wife’s emotions.

    Bottom line: teaching men that their life should not be dictated by their wife’s emotions is to not teach them what they need to know. Teaching them that only gives them false hope.

    And in that case, when wife says that, the only response is

    And then wage that war methodically and dispassionately so as to get the best deal I can in the ensuing marriage dissolution proceedings. I will tell everyone, including her family, parents and friends, how she acted and why this is happening. I will spread it of record in the pleadings filed with the court. I will take her through the nastiest, most contentious, most expensive, most protracted divorce proceedings I possibly can. There will be no agreements. We will fight over everything, including who gets the plastic wastebasket in the basement bathroom. I will force a sale of the marital house. Half of it is mine and if I don’t get to live in it, she doesn’t get to either. It will be sold and she can take her half and i’ll take mine.

    And I will do everything in my power to limit my financial obligations to her. I will fight for primary residential custody and if I cannot get that, then 50/50. I will fight to limit alimony as much as possible.

    And if that means I have to live without my child, then at least my child can respect me because I didn’t let a wife tell me what to do. At least I have my self-respect, even if I have to live in a one bedroom walkup to do it.

    In the “Mad About Boys” thread, I said: the words from Sen. Hirono really got to me. A sitting Senator. In a nation ruled by law, where men [all humans] are presumed innocent until PROVEN guilty. A Senator who is supposed to be upholding that law instead lectures the men of Congress and the nation that they should not expect proof. They should just automatically believe a 35-year-old story – just because a woman told it.

    Ton responded to me: That’s because despite your intelligence and accomplishments you are still a babe in the woods. The left has been like this the entirely of my recollections.
    (not taking issue with what ton said; just setting the stage)

    Many also seem willing to abandon all statutes of limitation and questions of jurisdiction. I’m not a lawyer, but as a citizen it is easy to see how this idea is a protection, not an obstruction of justice. Certain agents enforce certain laws, so we can hold various bodies accountable in appropriate ways. Accusations made after certain limits are unreliable and often can no longer be proven. Who wants to go to trial for something that happened so long ago that a fair trial is impossible? We all benefit from statutes of limitation.

    As we turn away from these protections for men, what is the logical outcome? If a vindictive woman or ideological zealot in this polarized time decides a man must be silenced, isolated, or otherwise moved out of the way, what protections will he have? What due process will protect the innocent? Should we pretend people, both women and men, do not make false accusations for a whole host of reasons?

    First, that good character is no defense. If you are John McCain, who genuinely tried to do the right thing and carefully cultivated a relationship with the media over decades, they will still call you a racist when you run against Barack Obama.

    If you are Mitt Romney, an exceptionally earnest and decent man, they will make you into a heartless and despicable vulture capitalist, also for the offense of campaigning against Obama.

    If you are Brett Kavanaugh, a respected member of the legal establishment who doesn’t have a flyspeck on his record across decades of public service in Washington, they will come up with dubious accusations of wrongdoing from decades ago when you were a teenager.

    Second, that the media is an unremitting political and cultural adversary. In the Kavanaugh controversy, the press has been wholly on the other side, presuming his guilt and valorizing his accusers and their supporters, including Hawaii Sen. Mazie Hirono, whose most famous contribution to the debate was telling men to “shut up.” The advocacy isn’t limited to cable networks or the Twitter feeds of journalists. It reaches all the way up the food chain. . . .

    Third, that politics isn’t just rough-and-tumble; it’s red in tooth and claw. Process and norms are nice, but they go out the window as soon as something important is at stake, like a potential fifth vote on the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade.

    Senate Democrats may delicately talk about the importance of norms and civility on Sunday shows, but watch how they act.

    “Brett Kavanaugh has asked for his voice to be heard in this process, too,” Sanders said. “Last I can remember, we’re still a country where you’re innocent until proven guilty — unless you’re a conservative Republican. It is absolutely shameful what the Democrats have done and the way they have turned this into complete political process.”

    Sanders said that Democrats have ruined “multiple lives.”

    “They want this to be a political game, and I think that the way they have operated in this is absolutely appalling,” Sanders said. “If anything has been appalling, it’s the way that they have gone after and used these people’s stories and their lives and exploited them for political gain.”

    CBS reported on a new study from Payscale, which found that, even more than an Ivy-League education, majoring in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) will net the highest income right out of college and beyond. Petroleum engineering, for example, pays $83,000 a year right out of college, the highest of any other major, and engineering skills are in demand, so going to a top-ranked school is less important.

    And, as has been pointed out time and time again, men dominate STEM majors, despite decades of pushing “women in STEM” programs and scholarships. Even when women do earn STEM degrees they are less likely than men to actually work in a STEM field, instead going into education or healthcare.

    Also from the above link

    Another interesting find from Payscale was that although the skills that come from liberal arts degrees are still needed, students majoring in such are no longer getting those skills.

    “It’s about critical thinking and communication skills,” Lydia Frank, vice president of content strategy at Payscale, told CBS. “When we ask employers about skills that are lacking in new college grads, we thought it would be technical skills. But what we hear from employers is often the new hires right out of college are lacking things that you think everyone in college should graduate with, which are communication skills and critical thinking.”

    Jian Ghomeshi, formerly a celebrity broadcaster for the CBC, was the target of a lying campaign by a gaggle of unscrupulous women who accused him of sexual abuse. Though exonerated in a famous trial in which his accusers were shown to have colluded in preparing a sheaf of false charges — some of whom continued wanting to date him even at the time of his alleged misconduct — his career is ruined and his reputation in tatters. “I’ve become a hashtag,” he says.

    Ghomeshi in his own words had been “a doctrinaire activist who was tear-gassed at protests.” He wore T-shirts “screaming slogans of equality and liberation.” And he admits to having used his “liberal gender studies as a cover for my own behavior.” Although he quite justifiably “cannot confess to the accusations that are inaccurate,” he now feels “deep remorse about how I treated some people in my life.” He affirms that he is “not suddenly an antifeminist activist, stage-diving at a Breitbart road show” and goes so far as to say that he now sees his own actions “as part of a systemic culture of unhealthy masculinity.” Though I believe he may be sincere in his expression of contrition, Ghomeshi has clearly made all the right penitential moves in a well-written but humiliating apology for his dismissive and narcissistic conduct — chiefly with women, obviously. It doesn’t make any difference.

    This is what you get with running off emotions as truth, wimminz suffrage and unchecked feminism.

    ‘“I just want to say to the men in this country, ‘Just shut up and step up. Do the right thing for a change,'” said Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Ha. “Not only do women, like Dr. Ford, who bravely comes forward, need to be heard, but they need to be believed.”

    Read her words carefully. She is saying all men are guilty, not because they’ve been proven guilty, but because they are men. They are inherently guilty, by their nature. All women must be believed, not because we can show they’re telling the truth, but because they are female.

    Evidence is suddenly irrelevant. All that matters is gender. All of us are condemned or redeemed at birth and there’s nothing any of us can do to change that. It’s baked in the cake.

    That’s what she said.

    No living U.S. senator has ever said anything like that in public. Yet, none of Hirono’s Democratic colleagues recoiled or even scolded her or suggested she was wrong. Their silence suggests they agree.’

    One estimator was (past tense) scheduled to come this afternoon…and at the last last minute I was informed by email that it would be a woman who would be coming…I promptly called the company and spoke to a nice lady, and informed her that I would really prefer a man to come and look over the job. Her sputtering and stammering was wonderful to listen to as she kept repeating “a MAN?? MALE??”…why, yes dear, a man. I do not want a woman doing a man’s job in my home.

    Can’t say this woman was having a shit fit, but she was certainly stuttering a lot. A few moments later, she lied and said that all the project estimators in my area of town were all female, no men were were available..ok, babe. I believe you.

    Hopefully, the decision will be made soon to say something along the lines of: The time for vetting Judge Kavenaugh was well publicized. That time was designed to give voice to all those who had something to say. If you did not speak up then, forever hold your peace. Window is closed. Let’s vote.

    If he does not do that, the Democrates will keep this going until the elections in November.

    Deborah Ramirez, a Yale University classmate of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, is refusing to talk to the Senate Judiciary Committee about her accusation against Kavanaugh, a GOP lawmaker said Tuesday.

    Sen. John Kennedy, R-La., who sits on the committee, said a lawyer for Ramirez told committee staff she would not speak to them about her allegation that Kavanaugh flashed his naked groin in her face during an alcohol-laden party their freshman year. Ramirez made the accusation in a blockbuster Sunday night New Yorker story.

    “Our counsel repeatedly tried to reach him,” Kennedy said of Ramirez’s lawyer. “They finally did reach him, and he said we are not issuing a statement. He said if you want our statement, read the New Yorker.”

    “After WWII and before the fall of the Soviet Union, the little wars that periodically flared up always seemed to have the U.S. backing one side and the Soviets backing the other. It may have been South Vietnam vs. the North, but the war was really about the U.S. vs. the USSR. Similarly, all of the shouting about Judge Kavanaugh is about something else, namely, abortion. That’s the issue that’s been hovering in the background of this whole circus. Because Kavanaugh potentially represents the vote that will overturn Roe V. Wade. Like this woman here, writing the Atlantic. Says she was date-raped on the night before she graduated from college. Didn’t report it to the police. Just wanted to move on. 30 years later, she wrote a letter to the guy. And then he called her on the phone and apologized. He apologized profusely, and offered no excuses for his blackout drunk behavior. Afterwards, the author says felt the trauma of decades lifted off of her. She says she felt ‘cleansed’. His apology was apparently so heartfelt that she promised never to reveal his name. But then she turns right around and says, but if he’s ever up for the Supreme Court, she’ll rat him out to the committee. Because he might vote to repeal RvW, and according to the author, the fact that he drunkenly date-raped her disqualifies him from the bench. She never says how she knows he might vote to repeal, but I guess the guy must be a conservative lawyer or judge somewhere. She doesn’t specify any other thing that might disqualify him. Presumably, if she had been raped by a liberal guy, she wouldn’t have this objection. She never comes out and says that, either, but it kind of lingers in the air like a stale fart. It was actually kind of a touching story up until the point where she let it slip that yeah, it’s actually about politics. And by politics, I mean killing babies. That takes precedence over everything else.”

    5. The accuser seeks to force the accused to defend himself or herself before committing to a final version.

    6. The accused makes a strong and unequivocal denial.

    7. The accuser makes unusual demands to modify or control the process.

    8. When the accuser’s ability to identify the accused has not been properly explained.

    9. When witnesses don’t corroborate.

    10. When corroborating witnesses simply repeat the accusation of the accuser but don’t have fresh information.

The informant dug through the desks and locker rooms of her coworkers/superiors and found such vintage things as doofer books/song books/nose pinup art/ect. Congress responded and 32000 items were confiscated to include Princess Leia action figures at the BX. Witch hunt doesn’t even begin to describe it.

    General Franklin was fired after all the courtroom evidence came to light. It was obvious the testimony was not credible, ever changing, largely erroneous and fabricated.
