The Mix


The Mix sounds like a radio station, but rather it relates to something coming from this quote

I read a quote once that, if men don’t compute that there is at least a 50-50 chance of success, they don’t even bother to try, where a woman will keep trying past the point of harming herself.

More specifically, the a woman will keep trying past the point of harming herself part is of interest.  Of course, this is referring to a woman and her dealings with men.  Perhaps women should be lauded for the effort that they bring.  But perhaps we should consider the situation further.

Yes, many women do put in considerable effort with respect to garnering attention of men.  The real question is: what kind of attention are they trying for?

Often it is implied that they are virtuous and are only seeking attention for the sake of getting married and starting a family.  Perhaps this was actually the case in the olden days.   These days, in the late teens and early twenties, the mix for the working/professional girl is probably more like this (your mileage may vary),

10%  Find a husband

20%  Have “fun”

30%  Soak up validation

40%  Hot sex

If anybody out there wants to suggest different values, feel free to do so.

In the mid twenties, it is more like

30% Find a husband

10% Have “fun”

20% Soak up validation

40% Hot sex

In the late twenties

60% Find a husband

5%  Have fun

10% Soak up validation

25% Hot sex

Come the thirties

90%  Find a husband

10% Hot sex

For some, this mixture schedule works (seemingly for now).  For others, it fails miserably in the end.

If only there was a mixture schedule that less likely to fail over the long run…

P.S.  What might the churchian mix schedule look like?

  2. On TCM they played three Elvis movies back to back with Jailhouse Rock being the first one. Elvis is in prison at the start of the movie and does some kind of TV talent show from the jailhouse which results in thousands of girls writing him fan letters which he is given when he gets out of jail. In one letter he reads a girl writes, “Hi. I saw you on the that TV prison talent TV show. I’m 15 years old and my measurements are 35-24-36. I live at this 2424 Mockingbird Lans and my phone # is 555-1212. Call me when you get out of prison.”

    Ame – the scientific community can give you some specific reasons why to not put much stock in the results of these commercial DNA tests. In general, they are extremely misleading.

    Consider the story around Elizabeth Warren – how there was so little genuine native american data in the database that they “supplemented” it with data from other ethnicity groups. How reliable are those results for checking whether someone has Cherokee DNA in them? (A: Not reliable at all.) Given the state of the current commercial DNA database accuracy, I would believe the stories from your mom and her siblings over the results of the DNA test.

    OT – for those who helped me figure out what to ask for some time ago to get a detailed, itemized statement from the hospital …

    i’ve probably talked to three or four people in billing at the billing company and then the hospital asking for a detailed, itemized statement. i just got in an “Itemized” statement from the hospital that details … one lump sum.

    so i called my Husband’s ex (whom i have intentionally maintained a great relationship with for the benefit of my Husband and their son – she thinks i’m awesome) who used to work in hospital billing or something like that, and she told me to go up there and talk to the people in records.

    i told her that i feel like they’re hiding something from me, and she said they absolutely are hiding something from me. she said that they charge a package but that most people don’t use everything in the package.

    so … next stop … Aspie Girl and i will visit hospital records … and i will try to refrain from handing them a definition sheet of the words “Itemized” and “Detailed” … and Aspie Girl will be instructed to be respectful when she informs them that, NO, she did not use all the services listed in the package deal.

    I was speaking at an event this week when someone asked a question I’ve been asked a hundred times before: How can feminists do a better job of reaching men? It’s a reasonable query, and for years I’ve answered it by pointing out all the ways women can talk to the men in their lives about feminism, and how they can help. But this time, I’d run out of patience.

    I answered that I don’t really care about reaching men anymore. It’s too exhausting, too demeaning. It’s absurd that a woman should have to persuade someone else of her humanity (which is, remember, what feminism is actually about).

    … a woman will keep trying past the point of harming herself.

    I could have cut to the chase here, but decided to present a slice of life first that some of you may be familiar with. Skip down 5 paragraphs or so if you don’t want the slice of life.

    The neighborhood we live in had a generation change-over starting about 35 years ago, and lasting for about 15 years. It is an older, established neighborhood where the guys and gals working for the WWII war machine in the airplane industry around Burbank found modest but sturdy homes in which to settle down and raise families. Then those families grew up and went out into the world and mom and dad grew older, and finally transitioned into living with the kids or living in assisted living facilities. We were part of a group of younger folk who moved in and took over those houses from the older generation. About 20 years ago or so the neighborhood had a substantial population of children, which our daughter became part of.

    Twenty-five years ago or so, one of the young couples opened their home at Christmas for a neighbornood Christmas get together. It was a healthy mix of the younger families who had just moved in and the older couples who had yet to move out. Good conversations with the older folks about what they had found worked and didn’t work in the raising of their families. Lessons learned by the younger folks, and implemented with varying degrees of success. (One of the newer guys, been here for a few years – wife is Australian, good looking, and a killer voice with her accent – is the roadie / personal assistant to the bass player for Guns n Roses. He always has interesting stories from out on the road.)

    The lady across the street from us had two daughters when we moved in. Youngest was probably 12 or t3 and we got to watch her grow up and get married. Really cute girl. Bright. Graduated from UCLA. Then got her masters degree. Then got married and bought a house in the neighborhood and had a daughter and a son. Son is a senior in high school. Daughter is a Junior in college, studying … women’s studies. (rolls eyes)

    Due to scheduling conflicts, wife and I have missed the Christmas party for the last two years, (so I missed the beginning of the story I’m telling here). I was able to make it this year. All the kids are grown and gone, and now we are the older folk, talking to the new younger folk who are beginning to move into the neighborhood.

    The husband of the girl from across the street, the girl we watched grow up and graduate college and get married and raise a family, was there. Their divorce will be final in April of 2019. He claims there was no infidelity on his part. She just decided one day to ask him to leave. Of course, she would get the house, and $3,000 a month in alimony. No child support for older daughter, and child support for a few months for son who is about to turn 18. Of course she has a boyfriend, but he is not living in the house. Well, at least not until the divorce is final in April.

    Oh, wait … Don’t you have a Master’s degree? asked the Judge just recently. And your husband is a 5th-grade school teacher who makes enough to squeak by for one family, but certainly doesn’t have the money to support two families. I’ll grant you $600 per month for the time being, because your son has not graduate yet. But, you have a Master’s degree. Get a job. And, by the way, your husband needs help with his finances. Sell the house and split the profit. Said the Judge – to a very surprised woman, who was expecting to keep the house and get $3,000 for her effort at blowing up the family.

    She could have figured this all out on her own. But I guess she would rather believe in the dream she had created for herself. And she did not stop believing in that dream, kept insisting on that dream, until the Judge told her she wasn’t going to get it.

    … a woman will keep trying past the point of harming herself.

    She has harmed herself big-time. Her life is not going to be at all what she envisioned it would be when she pulled the trigger. The only way to salvage things now is to find some thirsty guy who will wife up her well-past-the-wall self. And it’s too late for her to get a do-over with husband.

    I’ve only told part of the story. Y’all can fill in the rest from what you know about every other story like this. Have to sell the house by court order … not in condition to sell … husband works, wife doesn’t … she doesn’t know how to deal with contractors … husband left to manage the fixing up of the house that has been home to his family for the past 25 years – just so he can sell it .. cause wife has dreams and stuff.

    Came the time that daughter left for college and son would be graduating high school in a few years. Mothering duty less demanding, less requirement for mom to stay tied to the house. “Do you suppose you might put your Graduate degree to use and find a job and help us out a bit financially? asked husband, who thought he was making a reasonable request. As far as he can tell, that question is what started the process that culminated in her pulling the trigger. How dare he ask her to contribute in that way? He must not really love her the way she deserves to be loved.

    At least he still has a close relationship with his daughter. He has an on-going texting relationship with son, who does not want a physically close relationship with dad because he is still living with mom. Dad is hopefull that this will change when son gets to college. But at least son doesn’t have to wonder where dad went – because of the texting relationship.

    My mind immediately went to the recent conversation at Ash’s place about no-fault divorce. This seems like a candidate for the court requiring the wife to stay put and behave as she cannot prove any fault in the husband. But then, I’m sure I don’t know the whole story. But I have known both of them for 25 years, so I’m pretty sure the husband is correct when he says there really is no justification for blowing up the family other than she thought she could continue on with life she had – but would be free from having to answer to her husband about maybe helping out with the family finances.

    Bad choice on her part, it seems.

    … a woman will keep trying past the point of harming herself. Seems like she has done just that.

    Merry Christmas everyone.

    Dump the feminism and be the feminine helpmate you were created to be.

    ‘Right now, we are living under the most explicitly misogynist president in modern history, in a country where an accused sexual abuser was just appointed to the Supreme Court. Women are being killed for saying no to men. Ohio has passed a bill that makes abortion a crime if the fetus has a heartbeat. And the wage gap is actually much wider than we originally thought.’

    Sorry that things like the electoral college, false accusations, not wanting to work as much overtime as men and not wanting to kill kids in the womb make you want to go all depressed.

    And it seems like a weekly story in Florida some meth chick gets all stabby cause a man told her no to sex…so I don’t know how many of these women are getting killed for saying no to a man.

    ‘ A new poll shows that only 45 percent of U.S. men are comfortable with the idea of a female president. Are you out there talking to other 55 percent about what the fuck is wrong with them?’

    Mr. Daniels, 69, is the most innovative university president in America. Like his counterparts at other schools, he believes higher education has been “a competitive advantage” for the U.S.—“a nice little export industry, if you add up all the dollars that come here to purchase the education of students from other places.” He regards the rumbling in Washington about curbing visas for foreign students to be “very shortsighted.” But he also thinks American higher education has grown fat and complacent. He’s making inventive, even radical changes in the way his institution finances itself and imparts an education.

    Mr. Daniels kicks off our conversation with a morality tale: “I’ll speak to an audience of businesspeople and say: Here’s the racket that you should have gone into. You’re selling something, a college diploma, that’s deemed a necessity. And you have total pricing power.” Better than that: “When you raise your prices, you not only don’t lose customers, you may actually attract new ones.”

    For lack of objective measures, “people associate the sticker price with quality: ‘If school A costs more than B, I guess it’s a better school.’ ” A third-party payer, the government, funds it all, so that “the customer—that is, the student and the family—feels insulated against the cost. A perfect formula for complacency.” The parallels with health care, he observes, are “smack on.”

    Mr. Daniels takes a different approach. In 2001-03, he ran the White House budget office for President George W. Bush, who dubbed him “The Blade” for his cost-cutting skills. Mr. Daniels brought his paring knife to Purdue. Examples of his efficiencies include replacing full-time dining-hall employees with student workers, scrapping the vast fleet of university-owned buses in favor of a private contractor, and saving $61 million on capital projects through what the university calls “innovative construction management.”

    His most eye-catching achievement has been to keep costs down for students. By graduation day in 2020, tuition won’t have risen in eight years. “We’re able to say,” he says, “that the total cost in nominal dollars of going to Purdue will be less in 2020 than it was in 2012.”

    Mr. Daniels says widespread adoption of Purdue’s “affordability campaign” would improve higher education. “Everybody is worried,” he says, furrowing his brow. “What are we at? A trillion and a half of student debt, twice as much as the total credit-card debt. It’s a social and economic problem.” He offers up a list of life’s milestones that people delay because of college debt: “marriage, household formation, child raising, homeownership, business-start formation—all of these things are being pressed down by college debt.” The “obvious first step,” Mr. Daniels replies, “is don’t charge so darn much in the first place.”

    The nonviolent version of the French carbon-tax revolt is spreading globally, too. Last November, Washington state voters rejected a very well-funded effort to pass the first ballot-approved carbon tax ever. The province of Ontario is suing the Canadian government to block a federal carbon tax there. According The Wall Street Journal, “the issue could topple the Alberta government and perhaps Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.” The Journal adds, “German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Energiewende—a transition to renewables that has increased dirty coal emissions and caused household energy costs to soar—has become a political liability.”

    The resistance comes from middle- to low-income workers. They’re especially sensitive to changes in the cost and availability of energy for the simple reason that it affects so many aspects of their lives—from getting to work, especially for those who live in rural areas, to the price of most consumer goods. It’s clear that many ordinary people aren’t willing to pay higher costs just to fulfill the grand visions of central planners

    “Then I reminded Voxen she needs to think about her daughter’s marriage value more. (Too late already is my guess.)”

    There was a movie in the late 1960s staring Sidney Pointier, called, “To Sir, With Love”. It was about a teacher in a high school in Britain (he was an engineer but couldn’t find employment so he took on a teaching job while waiting for something better).
    There was a scene in the movie where the girls misbehaved badly (they ignited some female products on his desk). He told them they were all a bunch of sluts and if they ever hoped to marry they would have to change. Sure the boys will like you now, but they’ll never marry you he said. Imagine a speech like that today. So, again, shifting incentives/consequences…shifts the risk/reward ratio.

    A 14 year-old having slumber parties with boys in her mother’s home at 14: At 20, she’ll be 75 pounds overweight, pre-diabetic, have one white baby and one mulatto, be on Medicaid, ADC, Section 8, food stamps, and seeking public assistance to start a “day-care” facility so she can be “more independent.” And she will find a compassionate State which employs other women (never men) who are paid to give her all of those things.

    (My friend the gyn-onc surgeon is the one who had to send a patient to the Omaha Zoo for her scan, since she didn’t fit into machines for humans. She is a “day-care provider.”)

    TL;DR? She’s already forfeited “marriage value.” What intelligent man would marry someone who thinks it’s normal for his future 14 year-old daughter to be fucking boys at 14 amidst her Hello Kitty collection?

    If I recall correctly, “Vixen” is the stripper who moved into Bloom’s house but decided not to help out with chores. Gomer Pyle: “Surprise, surprise, surprise!”

Well, after college.” Said friend was raised Southern Baptist and attended, briefly, an evangelical college. Her Tumblr account is filled with a) nudes of solitary and stricken women looking balefully at the horizon; b) quotes by Indian mystics (she’s a yogi) that imply her superior spiritual state. TBH, she’s definitely not overweight. Her last text to me was “I haven’t had an orgasm in three months!” I’d post a picture of her but The Ton would point an M4 at my head and demand her address, and of course, that’s a good moment in which to remember how to tell the truth.

    @Ton said: … he has lived in the same house and hood for so long.

    Two things:

    – We are fairly close to all the government buildings in the middle of the San Fernando Valley. Those buildings, and our neighborhood, are here because they are built on top of basically a large rock. The area in the rest of the Valley is unstable – which folks found out about in the earthquake of 1994, when the ground liquified during the shaking most everywhere except where we and the government buildings are. Then I understood why the geologists put the government buildings here.

    We were scheduled to make an offer on a different house in a different neighborhood. when the earthquake struck. Click on the link below and scroll down to the fourth picture (assuming the pictures stay in the same order as I see them).. You should see a sizeable fire in the middle of the street. That is from a gas main that broke when a fissure opened up from left to right in the picture (broken water main also). To the far right of the picture the ground drops away in a gentle slope overlooking a golf-course beyond there. The house we were going to make an offer on sits at the top of that slope. The fissure running from left to right in that picture went right through the house next door and split it in half, in addition to causing the upper part of the slope to slide down-hill.

    We decided to stay where we were.

    https://www.theatlantic.com/photo/2014/01/the-northridge-earthquake-20-years-ago-today/100664/

    – Our house is a Cape-Cod-style house on an oversized lot. The rest of the neighborhood was built by a single developer, who made every house some variation on the same design. Our house is not like any other house in the neighborhood. We had just moved to town from the D.C. area where Cape Cod style is all over. Seeing the house triggered that “home” feeling in us, and so we bought it.

    The guy we bought it from purchased it when they were tearing down a neighborhood along Ventura Blvd. to make room for apartment buildings. He got it for $10,000 if he would haul it away. Otherwise they would demolish it like they did with the rest. He hired a crew and they cut the house in half with a chainsaw, and moved it onto our lot in the middle of the night. It’s a good house, and we can stand up and walk around in the attic – so we have a lot of storage space that we wouldn’t otherwise have. Didn’t think about the “cutting it in half with a chainsaw” much, until we had some serious electrical problems a few years ago. Then that “cut it in half” thing registered with me. That meant the wiring was severed as well. We have a lot of three-way switches in the house and at some point something failed and we lost electricity to half the house. A friend of the family, who is very bright but lacks social filters so he gets shunned a lot, took his tools and went from outlet to outlet until he had figured out what to do. He did it and the electricity came back to the dark part of the house. I don’t know what he did other than he compensated for how they screwed up when they reconnected the wires after cutting the house in half.

    I used to wonder that as well, and find myself reverting back to that thinking in unguarded moments. But the answer these days, and for some time now, actually is that any wife can get a restraining order, with no questions asked, because she fears for her safety.

    So – maybe better to just leave, without that restraining order. The upside is that there is no legal document that restrains his access to his children, There likely would be if he had forced the issue by not leaving.

    Be Very Evil

    The psychologist/researcher Dr. Robert Epstein conducted four different studies to see how suppression of negative search results could sway an election — one hypothetical one in Australia, one hypothetical one in the US, one real one in India during the Indian elections, and one real one in the US during the 2016 elections.

    When he looked down a list of the first ten search results for Hillary Clinton, he noticed that all ten were biased in her favor. He said to the camera, approximately, “If I were doing this, I wouldn’t have made all ten of the first results positive for Hillary. I would have been more subtle and included a couple of bad results so it wasn’t so blatant.”

    He found that nearly everyone was influenced in favor of the candidate whose negative search results were suppressed, though not everyone who shifted in opinion towards Hillary Clinton would actually vote for her.

    He estimated that the percentage of the population who could be swayed to actually change votes via this simple procedure — which, I remind you, Google is already running on us — is ten percent.

    Richard P – those pics bring it all back. 2″ cracks in every wall, no water, no power, no gas (thank god!). What a mess. I was lucky, I was in the middle of construction and thus had 1st dibs on a crew. Many others had to wait for years to rebuild. Not looking forward to the next one though I am better prepared, engineered, etc.

    I think Mossad used .22s back in the ’70s because they were quiet and ran less collateral risk in crowded urban environments. I’m guessing it was partly a political thing, European governments probably looked the other way if they bumped off a few hijackers but a random bullet capping a banker or uni professor would have created a lot of trouble.

    So does she pretend to be smart, with her being really dim. In which case, she is pretending to be something that she is not

    Or is the pretending to be smart stuff really just a joke, in which case she isn’t pretending to be something that she is not.

    @Alan said: those pics bring it all back. … What a mess.

    Wife’s grandparents lived in Visalia, north of LA, in the San Joaquin Valley. They were in the process of dying, and we were escorting them to the grave. Visits every 2-3 weeks (3.5 hour drive one way) to make certain they had the food and clothes and toiletries they needed. They were in 2 different nursing homes, but they only supplied the bare necessities. (Side note: they had the chance to buy the house across the street from us, but chose not too. This story takes place during the time they expressed regret that they had not bought the house.)

    It was a real treat trying to go north out of the San Fernando Valley with the roads all shut down, including the freeway (bridges either broken or needing to be checked out before cars could be allowed across). Travel time suddenly became an all-day affair.

    But we did have one experience that few have ever had. Coming to LA from Bakersfield, the freeway into LA was closed just past the top of the Grapevine (summit at 4,100 feet) on the LA side. There was a road that would take you out past Palmdale and on to Victorville – where you could come down into LA on the 15, through San Bernadino and Riverside. The police had the freeway blocked and that was the only way traffic could get down into LA. It was after midnight, and the police were in a friendly mood. We explained what we were doing (the grandparents), and they let us proceed down the freeway. They knew we had to get off the freeway in Santa Clarita (Valencia / Magic Mountain) and take back roads from there down into the San Fernando Valley. There was just our one car, and so they figure it was OK to let us through (those backroads could not handle tens of thousands of cars). All the way up the Grapevine out of the San Joaquin Valley and down into Santa Clarita / Valencia, we were the only car on the road. Late at night. Pitch black. Stars shining more brightly than normal because of no car lights. It was lovely, but I hope to never experience that again – cause that would mean there was another similar earthquake, and I’ll pass on that, thank you.

Her ass…might’ve been better than mine. Maybe. That doesn’t happen much. Now, this trail was rough…there were pockets of ice, rocks, it was very uneven terrain. I noted that TRB was “likely to turn an ankle and end up with an injury” and Mike said, “Yeah, looks like she doesn’t do this much…”

  203. BV you are confusing Vixen w Dancer, not that it really matters. Vixen is my former neighbor, ex of Hercules. Looks (less each year) like a young Demi Moore.

    The 14 year old looks 21 and is about 5’8” already. Not as good looking as either of her parents but she may grow into that yet and she’s better looking than average still, if not exceptionally so. And not so bright, certainly not as brite as she thinks.

    Your prediction of her future would be accurate in many parts of the country but I don’t see that here. Chances are more likely she’ll get knocked up by some hormonal white boy who is thinking with the little head and who will then likely marry her and that will not last and then she will live off the state and child support. That would be my bet but time will tell.

  205. FML, I see. And I get what you are saying but trust me it’s not so in this case. If I called CPS the boy may be charged w statutory rape but the girl would not change her behavior one bit so I don’t see how my destroying his life trying to save an honor she is actively trying to destroy (of her own free will) fixes anything. I don’t think for one second she’s a victim or being taken advantage of. If anything it’s the boy who needs protecting!

    And no, I am not saying she’s empowereed, I meant society today seems to call that empowered. I would be the last to say that’s empowered.

    It’s been awhile since I was 14 but even back then there were plenty of sexually active 14 year old girls. Isn’t 24 the average age for virginity loss in the US? It was, I have not checked lately. Way too young but sadly not uncommon. If that’s the average that means for over half, it’s younger. Think about that. Sad.

    Vixen Jr. is playing the game her mom taught her by example so I really should not have been surprised. It’s the logical outcome, actually.

    1. I bought two pairs of Merrills, on sale, on their web site. No prior history with them.

    I’m so mature that my ex-, who was all american (mile, 10,000), ran with Jan Merrill when they were just getting started. Then ex- went to Nike as their first woman manager and we lived with Joanie Benoit. At the time Merrill was just a sleepy family business; I think Jan was/is the daughter of one of the founders, R. Merrill.

    2. The same week I bought the shoes I bought a couple of Dell chromebooks.

    3. Dell fucked up the order and I was in Bangalore hell trying to get my order fixed — for two hours. They only shipped one machine and did not include the MS Office voucher I also purchased. But they kindly charged me for everything. This is straight felony theft. I kept asking for American customer service, and they kept switching me to someone else i could neither understand nor convince to fix my problems. I won’t ever send a dollar to Dell, again.

    4. So, royally twisted, I called Merrill customer service, basically to yell at someone about Where the fuck are my shoes? Yes, I’m ashamed.

    I immediately connected with a very intelligent American woman who immediately looked up my order, told me where it was in the supply chain, and that I should expect UPS delivery in two days. Took all of two minutes. I actually said to a call center CSR, “Thank you very much for your time.” They’re a sub of Wolverine now. I’m buying some construction boots to wear in the gym, for stability purposes, and they’ll be Wolverines.

    Amish still practice bundling: teens sleep in the same bed as part of their courting. There used to be a board running between them. I’m sure that’s criminal in most states now.

    A girlfriend of mine in high school was given rooms in her parents’ house with a separate entrance. We were respectful of each other, perhaps because sex was then still associated with taking significant responsibility for any outcome. But, really, 2 a.m. in a private apartment at 2 a.m. when two people are 16 or 17? (Man, that girl Mary had a figure.)

    I think adults created that situation. Her father was a Lutheran minister, incidentally. I see the Vixen situation as similar to that of UMC parents who encourage their children to stay home and blaze and drink. We had major issues with the parents of a friend of Son #1. He was over there every weekend getting wasted, for a while.

Hercules stomps down the hall, into the room, has the boy follow him outside, they have a man to man, the boy comes in to say goodbye and leaves tail tucked.

    this was the way to handle it … not calling CPS. getting CPS involved is bad – a very last resort, imo. they have no rules and no boundaries and can really screw up lives faster than a heartbeat.

    the dude probably has no clue of consent laws, and she probably forced the whole situation to begin with. taking dude aside, giving him the info – consent laws, what society is doing to guys like him in this culture – that’s the way to handle it.

    know a young man who got involved with a girl like that in high school – she was super aggressive and, imo, she raped him. his parents had lots of looong talks with him covering some harsh topics. if someone had called cps on him, his life would have been totally screwed up all b/c he went out with the wrong girl and didn’t know it till too late.

    All that did was to discuss the issue with that particular boy. It does nothing to address any other boys in the future. More importantly it fails to address the real problem, being “Vixen” and her enabling of inappropriate behavior.

    As for ‘Bixens current bf’, agreeing means nothing since he failed to stop it to begin with. Unless I am reading it incorrectly, the bf was there during this debacle.

    The only other option is for “Hercules” to go to court and file for sole custody of the girl, based on “Vixen’s” allowing this to have happened.

    addressing all the other boys in the future is yet another issue.

    ruining one boy’s life b/c this girl and her mother are so messed up in the head that ruining one boy’s life will do absolutely nothing to help anyone on any level, is wrong.

    parents have messed this poor kid up, but 14 year old girls can do really bad things of their own free will, too. there’s certainly enough blame to go around.

    ruining one boy’s life is not a solution for any of the above. having a frank discussion with boy and telling him how close he is to the edge of screwing up his life … giving him some guidelines to help him – that’s beneficial. however, if he then continues to choose to be stupid, then it’s on him for whatever ills he lands himself with in the future.

    i think the really hard thing about circumstances like Vixen and her daughter is that we are limited in what we can actually do that will actually help the right people and not hurt the wrong people. and that is frustrating as all get out.

    and sometimes … we can’t do anything to help … sometimes even our best ideas and efforts are in vain … or would be if we followed them through.

    so sometimes … people we know are getting hurt … are living in unsavory situations, and we can’t do a bloomin thing about it. that’s reality. and that sucks.

    we can’t save them all.

    but … we can do what we can do. Bloom allowed them to live with her for a long period of time. she filled them with truth and good things. they chose to ignore that. we have to let people do their own thing sometimes. and then we have to let go cause sometimes our good is not enough.

    which is why many give up helping others.

    i helped a woman and her two kids b/c kids needed a place to stay. won’t go into details, but i helped a lot. when it was all said and done, mother went on to make even more terrible choices for her kids anyway and destroyed (literally destroyed) good furniture i had lent her without even so much as an apology or an acknowledgement that she had done so.

    i have given money to people to help them only to have them screw up again anyway.

    we all have done things to help others only to find out it wasn’t enough. it didn’t ‘work.’

    so … do we stop helping? or do we continue to do what we can for those who are brought into our lives for whatever reason – being responsible with our helping, and let it be their responsibility for what they do with our help.

    Bloom did a lot for these people, but it would be unwise for them to have them live in her home ever again. however, hopefully, she planted enough seeds that someday one or both will decide to water one of those seeds.

    Summarizes the situation well

    The best that can be said for the Eurocrats is that their opponents are no more competent. UK Prime Minister David Cameron resigned after a majority of Britons voted to leave the EU in a referendum he had placed on the ballot. Yet he almost certainly would have handled his nation’s exit more skillfully than has Theresa May, who triggered Brexit before her own government was prepared to negotiate. She then called an election with no message other than that she wanted a bigger majority, and ended up losing her small one. She was badly outplayed by EU negotiators at every turn. Now her Brexit package could lose by upwards of three digits in the House of Commons.

    Alternative proposals include calling a second referendum, approving revised legislation that the EU says it will not consider, and “crashing out” of the organization to which London has belonged for four decades without even skeletal agreements for much of anything, including air travel, customs, and criminal justice.
