Get ‘R Done

Males are judged from an early age onward with respect to what they accomplish.  Usually this comes down to getting things done and doing them effectively.  Furthermore, there is the ethic of working with the team, and for the team, that is instilled.  Probably fellas have pre-dispostions built-in toward developing these characteristics.

There is a question about how these characteristics in men should be used.  Historically, the supposition was that a man should support his family and the tribe with the fruits of his labor.  Men still think this way; though today it seems to be much less so than the past.

Presently, the fruits of men’s labor goes for much more than the family and the tribe.  It goes for other’s families and other tribes; and to fund a class of people who know all, but know nothing.  This state of affairs just does not jive well with men’s internal sense of how things should be.  The hierarchy is messed up.  Men are built this way.  Probably it is based on a built-in disposition, one that would be considered evil by many in the modern world, but it is what it is.  So where will all of this lead, and what should individual men do?  What should they use their get ‘r done talents to do, and for whom?

    the base issue is that there are fewer men, and more soy-boys. men should continue doing what has helped to fuel society for thousands of years. soy-boys need to learn how to stop being cucks, and start working on having real personal moral courage.

    “The handmaiden thing and all the rest is such projection. The same people screeching about how women are at such risk are the ones advocating immigration of cultures that don’t just oppress women much worse than handmaids, they honor kill them just on the suspicion they are out of line.”

    So what is the problem with honor killing a female who gets out of line? Seems to me that the sure knowledge known by the female that if she screws around at all, her life is forfeit at the hands of her male (sometimes female) relatives is a wonderful deterrent against acting like whore. Shall I put a bit of personal spin to this?

    One year of engagement was required prior to the marriage of me and my wife. During that one year period, we were chaperoned at all times especially for the first few months; not even holding hands! My father-in-law to be took me aside into the back storage room in his house and showed me a rather old double barrel 12 gauge shotgun laying on the floor. He quite clearly asked ME if I was serious and fully intended to marry his daughter? If I was not serious, this was the time to say so then leave the house, and never again contact his daughter or even show up in town. By me leaving it would be the honorable thing to do and no harm would fall on the girl.

    However. If I indicated I would marry his daughter, then at a later time defiled her (she was a virgin) and left her, she would be killed and family honor could be restored. But her death would be my fault alone since I was the man. When I informed her father that his daughter would be my lawful wife, I was looking at that shotgun.

    This also applies to a married woman who cheats on her husband, the father or brothers will deal with the problem lethally if the husband has not already dealt with her himself. Again, a wonderful deterrence to female infidelity.

    Perhaps a solid does of that type of fear is required to straighten out and muzzle these feral females. It’s really too bad the liberal and rotted culture infesting this miserable country won’t allow it.

    Liz, if you’re new to snow, a few thoughts and apologies if they’re superfluous.

    1. Get real snow tires. Not “all season radials.” My preference is to go down a rim size and buy steel wheels with higher profile (70) sidewalls. They provide more pounds per square inch of contact patch. So one just swaps out the entire wheelset twice a year. I bought the best snows for my lawyer last winter, and I think they were ~$800 total. Big, big difference if driving over Independence Pass at midnight some winter night.

    2. Noobs think “AWD/4WD” means that the vehicles go and stop better. They just go better. They don’t stop better.

    3. Tow strap, shovel, blanket or sleeping bag, little plastic gripper plates in the back. So if you’re in the ditch you can wait safely, or with the jeep recovery plates, drive yourself out.

    4. I don’t bother with chains unless in a 2WD vehicle. (Colorado used to restrict passage during snow over the passes unless you have 4WD or chains. Don’t know the rule now.) But so-called ‘cable chains’ are what I carried in my SAABs and Volvos; compact and effective.

    I flew some people out of Louisiana after Hurricane Katrina. Basically, flew down to Atlanta, fueled up, turned right, GPS direct Baton Rouge. I was skipping across North Alabama and Mississippi at dusk. In Baton Rouge I slept on a church pew.

    Radio was just … dead. There was no traffic. About once every 20 minutes an Air Guard helicopter would check in. Time stops anyway when flying alone at night, but at least you have the voices on the radio. No voices, then. It’s very easy to become cocooned in thought in these situations. Langewiesche wrote once that a profound issue with guys who fly a lot is they become so pleased to be in the air, so comfortable, they forget it’s a hostile environment. There have been times when I was more at home in the air than on the ground, but of course, we belong on the ground.

    Baton Rouge, post-hurricane, was bedlam. We were lined up 20 miles out to land and it was “keep your speed up” etc. into an airport no one had ever seen. Hueys operating in and out underneath, one corporate jet after another joining the conga line. No place to park, took the FBO 12 hours to fuel me up.

    I flew one newly homeless guy up to Indiana — for free — and he was pissed that we were late because it took us an hour to get to the departure end of the runway because of all the traffic. Actually was bitching at me while I was trying to figure out why one cylinder went hinky and hot. This experience changed my perspective on charity.

    With their social agenda thus wedded to the progressive movement, feminist thinkers have taken a nosedive into corrosive identity politics, asserting their influence based on the notion that all women necessarily share their viewpoint, that women as an identity group (and a voting bloc) are united in a fight against patriarchal oppression. Feminist claims to political power are therefore premised on the fiction that all women are shackled by men and that all women should be united around one liberating platform — the progressive one.

    Identity politics is descended from Marx’s concept of “false consciousness,” which is a fancy way of saying that if you don’t fall into line with your victimhood group, then you aren’t a real person.

On this particular issue, the woke are in a clear minority across all ages.

    Youth isn’t a good proxy for support of political correctness—and it turns out race isn’t, either.

    Whites are ever so slightly less likely than average to believe that political correctness is a problem in the country: 79 percent of them share this sentiment. Instead, it is Asians (82 percent), Hispanics (87percent), and American Indians (88 percent) who are most likely to oppose political correctness

Actually was bitching at me while I was trying to figure out why one cylinder went hinky and hot. This experience changed my perspective on charity.”

    Heh BV, I know the folks in charge of the airlift for Puerto Rico after hurricane Maria, and several of the folks on the ground. The people doing those airlifts didn’t have a single day off for something like 3 months straight (including weekends). They had some choice words to say about mayor Carmen Cruz. This includes a Puerto Rican whose entire family lives over there.

    In her discourse Paglia explains, “The period of the 1920s, 1930s: that to me is my favorite period in feminism because these women admired what men had done. There was no male bashing as became systemic to Second Wave feminism. It’s an absolute poison that has spread worldwide.” The author of Sexual Personae later takes on the “neuroticism” endemic to modern feminism and how the movement’s deconstruction of traditional culture bred the “new religion” of political correctness.

    “Here, a university held a hearing to determine whether a student violated its student code of conduct,” Geck wrote. “Noticeably absent was even a semblance of due process. When the accused does not receive a fair hearing, neither does the accuser.”

    My great-great aunt established the first women’s college in China. University of Toronto, Presbyterian missionary (that side of the family is Scots — McCreery), escaped the Boxer Rebellion in the hold of a British ship. Went back. Educated young Chinese girls. Started her college, retired to my great-grandmother’s house (three blocks from mine, four blocks from my dad’s birthplace). Totally restless, went back to China in her 70’s while the Japs were invading. So they killed her in a concentration camp, we think; there was one Red Cross report that she was alive in a camp. Lifelong spinster.

    My grandmother’s sister, also named Lydia, worked in the settlement houses in Chicago (see, Upton Sinclair, The Jungle) and an evangelical Scots minister sent her to Smith and she became the first psychiatric social worker west of the Mississippi. Spinster. So these were feminists, in the Paglia sense. There are very few women like that now. They took care of themselves, paid their own bills and tried to enact their Presbyterian faith and values, against great hardship.

    Anne Morrow Lindberg, another of Paglia’s models, flew with her husband *open cockpit floatplane* in a single engine plane from New York “Northwest to the Orient” (name of her book) across NW Canada, territory of Alaska, eastern Alaska, Japan, then the Yangtze, where an American ship fished them out of the water.

    So I think Paglia has a point, although Earhart was a poor heroine (imo, she married for money) and objectively a really bad pilot.

    I think the hangars are tested to 130 mph winds. When they left it was a category one, so I’m guessing they took the ones under maintenance they didn’t think were safe to fly out, secured them in the hangars, and didn’t expect it to get to cat 4. That’s just guessing.
    It’s a difficult situation because if you’re in charge and take the risk flying a plane that isn’t in flying shape, you’re risking the plane.
    Of course now that it became a category 4 the risks are different than they were at cat 1. The window to make those decisions is really small.

    FML, Mattis issued a memo that was leaked this week, establishing the objective that all air assets needed to achieve 80% availability. So I’d say he agrees with you. Also, he may be maneuvering the bureaucrats into a position where they have to authorize the retirement of old aircraft and accelerated acquisition of the new.

    I got a Lockheed Martin and F-35 sim experience once. The sim was bonkers, but the most memorable element was being handed a small plastic case that I could hold in one hand. The pitch was that the entire ship could be serviced with the nine tools. (Complexity reduction.) I’m sure Col. and Mrs. Air Force know if the guy (President Lockheed Asia) was lying to me, which I don’t think he would since he was a prized neighbor and dinner/drinks (and more drinks and more drinks (he was Navy)).

    However, and this is the punch line, unfortunately a small metal toolset has yet to be designed to fix software.

    On the other hand, I don’t really give a shit. The F35 is a waste of money. UAV’s launching air to air missles can do the same air patrols. Boeing had a plan to replace all combat aircraft with programmable and recoverable missiles but air force officers have to fly cool shit in the hopes it will get them laid. If they don’t get to fly shit they’ll have pretty much the lamest job ever.

    Mike is home for the weekend and I asked about the planes. He said they have to take some of the F22s apart when they do LO (the chemical spray they put on the jets). So he suspects a few of them were in the process of getting treated. The most he’s seen is 6 held back…nowhere near this much. So I don’t know.

    The MQ9s were scheduled to move there…folks from Creech were really looking forward to living in Florida instead of a desert in the middle of nowhere.
    Don’t think that’s happening now.
    They’ll probably close the base like they did at Homestead by the look of things.
    When Homestead closed, they never brought the F16s back, they sent them elsewhere.
    This is a blow to Florida they won’t recover from for a while (not just a blow to Panama City but the whole state).
    Lots of interests hit hard. Really puts things into perspective. Never know what a day might bring.
    On the flip side, as a taxpayer and non-Florida resident, we can probably do with some base closures.

    The objective is to reduce risk as much as possible. Can’t eliminate risk entirely.

    A short time before landfall, it was a Cat 1. Only had a general idea of where landfall would be. Spend the bucks and the effort to get these 17 birds put back together and out, or guess that they will be hit by a the edges of a storm that would be easily weathered.

    We have to make decisions in the absence of complete information. That means sometimes we guess wrong. They guessed wrong,on two counts: the size, and where landfall would be.

    Another tale from Heartiste…this time about how evil women can be when it comes to divorce.

    Sidenote: This infidelity law needs to be nationwide…not just two states.

    ‘Many years ago, my older brother had three children with his now ex-wife. Great father, great provider. Worked a steady job plus extra gigs on the side to bring in extra income. Bought into a business and became the sole owner. Things were good, kids doing well in school, family vacations – the whole bit. He catches his wife in an affair, files for divorce. She goes crazy because Virginia is one of two states where infidelity voids all spousal support. She took him to court to sue for support anyway – and actually tried to make the argument that the amount of work and amount of hours he put into his business was proof that he had walked out on the marriage. Her argument was that her having an affair wasn’t really an affair because his “abandonment” was where the marriage really ended . The judge – who incidentally was a woman – gave her the most brutal verbal beat-down I’ve ever seen. She told her that she was the living embodiment of self-centeredness and had an over-inflated sense of self-importance. Found her guilty of infidelity. She had to get a job, sell the house and share custody. She also had to watch helplessly as he went on to expand his business and rake in even more.

    It was divorce porn for men.’

    that is a great story, Earl – a breath of fresh air.

    had lunch with a friend this week who is older than i am, been married almost 50 years – they’re wonderful people. we got to talking about my first husband and my parents – it was all overwhelming to her (i forget, sometimes … oops, but she said she was okay). and she asked the age-old questions, “But what if he … was beating you and the kids terribly … sexually abusing the kids … etc.” it’s where our minds go … the ‘but what if’ scenarios, and then people filter those answers down to everything else. i had to make her see that those ‘but what if’ scenarios are really, really rare. that changes the mindset.

    but even in those … growing up with abusive parents, i can’t imagine having that compounded by them having divorced when i was a kid and us being tossed back and forth between homes. it would have been terrible. they divorced when i was in my 40’s, and that was bad enough. my mom says she wished she’d left when we were younger … “You have no idea how many times I wanted to leave you when you were growing up.” but … can you imagine having to live with a single mom like that? it was bad enough with them married.

    anyway … it was interesting watching her change her paradigm of thinking. and then trying to explain the long-term negatives of divorce my girls and i will forever have to live with, even though he died later … that just means we have to live with both the divorce stuff and his death. because divorce is not a one-time thing, it’s on-going in myriads of little ways that add up over the years.

    “Cursed is the ground because of you; through painful toil you will eat food from it
    all the days of your life.

    women want a hard-working, successful man … till they realize it’s hard. then they want both the man who works hard and the one who’s always home. can’t have both. probably what’s so telling about that woman’s narrative is not that more women don’t use the same excuse, but that she actually used it in court … and then even more telling that a female judge actually judged her fairly. good for the judge. finally.


  149. RichardP says:

    In fairness, earl’s story demonstrates that man does not live by bread (money) alone. That type of story should be taught to girls annually from the first time they have mandatory sex education in fifth grade or whenever.

    The advertisers and marketers have women convinced that happiness lies in having a multitude of shiny things and plastic surgery. Like the woman in earl’s story, women demonstrate over and over again that – in the having of all of these things – they are still left wanting something more … a strong man, who is present, a tender touch, a soulful kiss, ears to listen …

    The one’s who push husband to work longer hours so they can have more shiny things need to know that long-term happiness for them might lie more in a lower-key lifestyle so that he can be present more. But, if she’s decided that he’s only good for money …
