Someone To Blame


Liz writes,

I think I’ve mentioned before we are our habits. That includes things like considerate behavior. I can’t imagine what it would be like (to use an example FML gave) to live with a person who is constantly hostile. I’m sure it develops over time and both start to feed off each other. Come home to constant hostility/depression/whatnot and eventually one starts to associate the person with the feelings they have when they’re around them. I’m sure over time, it’s a feedback loop that’s hard to break (maybe impossible).

My ex is illustrative of this.  At first, she was appreciative of what I had done for her and her son.  Or rather, she acted that way.  But then, old habits on her part started to come forth.  As I learned later, these habits were part of why she divorced her ex.  Basically, I would come home from work to a world of complaining.  Her life was very good, far better than it would have been without me, but she couldn’t contain the complaining,  It got to a point where she complained about excess wind, implying that it was my fault.  Once she got back into her old habits (they started in childhood I found out later, complaining about her parents), there was no stopping her.

As for me, my blue pill self from time to time stood up to her, but mostly I withdrew into my very introverted space.  Anyway, all of this provides one more datapoint as to why some people are just not good bets with respect to long term relationships

    The wife has a 70% responsibility for setting the mood of the marriage. It’s not 50/50 like most people want to think.
    Concerning how to handle contention in a marriage, I take a moderate view. For the most part, I think there’s not much a husband can do to get this wife to be more obedient to God in her dealings with him. Maybe prayer is the most effective recourse. However, there are certain situations which demand action, and a man should not be capitulating to her every demand. He needs to have a clear vision for the family. It’s better if she cooperates with that vision, but if she doesn’t, then of course, both people are disadvantaged.
    As you may know, I’ve dedicated a number of posts to the topic of disciplining (or teaching) disobedient wives.

    I don’t think praying is an effective tool to change other folks.

    Seems to me most men prey about their wife and marraige and they still end up busted. Probably because most women don’t have souls.

    A good pimp hand works wonders for their attitude but then you got to deal with the law. Fear, greed and lust. Greed is out because the state will make sure she gets all your shit so men are basically down to fear and lust

    prayer is good; prayer is always good.

    but … prayer is more for the person praying. not that we shouldn’t pray for our spouse, but praying for our spouse, even if praying according to scripture, does not guarantee changes in the other person. i prayed for my first husband, fervently. my bff said that if anyone could change their husband thru prayer, it was me. thing is … he still had a choice. God doesn’t not control us; He gives us choices.

    so … prayer, yes. but with a clear understanding of what prayer does and does not do … and what God will and will not do. we cannot manipulate God.

    I think where the prayer crowd goes wrong is free will. As in the Almighty doesn’t over ride our free will.

    I did the pray during a failing marraige thing. And so has countless millions of men and women and yet here we are, failed marriage and all that.

    Then there is the red pill and game. Crush them shit tests, pound that pussy until it breaks and be high value enough she fears loosing you and odds are good y mum she’ll hang around. Even when you don’t want them too.

    Men were put on this earth to take dominion over it and that’s how you rule over women.

    I pray through out the day. Mostly prayers of thanksgiving and for others. It is good, right and just to give the Almighty His due. Especially for me since He has been especially kind to me but with that said I think most Christian folk don’t know what they are talking about.

    The greatest failure of Statecraft since Suez

    If was some forty years before Suez, and not in the heat of the Egyptian
    desert but in the cold dark of the North Sea that Admiral Beatty
    commented, as two of his prized battlecruisers blew up at Jutland,
    “There’s something wrong with our bloody ships today”. The nation,
    schooled in an invincible navy, in a formidable fleet, found the losses
    hard to swallow. Likewise, in a Britain schooled in the notion of a
    Rolls-Royce civil service, in which the best and brightest in the land
    devote lives to the nation, and as highly competent mandarins steer the
    great ship of state with skill and dedication, we are faced with the
    abject failure of Whitehall.

    There’s something wrong with the bastards today. Despite May’s manifest
    stubborn stupidity, despite her lunacy in treating Brexit, as Nick
    Timothy described, as a damage limitation exercise, they should never
    have permitted her ignorance and idiocy to plunge the United Kingdom
    into the greatest failure of Statecraft since Suez, as Allister Heath
    phrases it.

    ‘Boomer’ Cox is a caricature, a character from a Gilbert and Sullivan
    opera or one of the supporting cast of Mortimer’s Rumpole. Skilled
    neither in this specialist area of the law or in statesmanship, his
    mission has quite predictably failed. The Commons team of eight legal
    experts have nothing to scrutinise.

    The EU will not move a millimetre because it is their sole aim to
    damage, hurt and humiliate Britain, a repeat Versailles. In this they
    are assisted by May’s scabrous government and a Parliament that still
    refuses to accept that a majority of voters, 17.4m electors, sealed a
    mandate to Leave.

    Well, sooner or later they must face the ballot box. Any notion they may
    have that the public anger at her capitulation, at the failure of my
    party to prevent it, will be forgotten is naive. We have not forgiven
    Blair for 2003, nor will we. Our memories are long and we carry a grudge
    deeply. They will not, they cannot succeed in preventing our exit from a
    failed EU – we only question how much suffering and humiliation will
    they inflict on Britain before they realise this. The more they prolong
    it, the greater the force with which they will be thrown from office.

    If there were ever an argument to be made for a British Electoral College, it is this. The vote to leave the European Union was won by a slim margin in terms of overall votes, but by area and constituency it was a huge au revoir from almost everywhere but London, the capital city. That the sheer number of people living in one small area of the U.K. have the ultimate sway over the direction and lives of those from whom they are so far removed shows us that the present system is deeply flawed.

    Anger is at boiling point in Britain. Demonstrators are taking to the streets in growing numbers. Belief in the value of voting is being eroded day by day, and the murmured chatter in back rooms and bars across the nation is one of disgust and righteous indignation. When change fails to come through the ballot box, the nation will fall to chaos, and the social contract may be irreparably broken.

    Have to question the wisdom of this

    Rumour was at the time that the establishment feared riots if he wasn’t released. And when he was released it was visibly obvious that he had been on starvation rations (scared of poisoning/tampering with his food by the prison cooks) and held in solitary confinement far beyond the maximum period legally allowed.

    It is open season on Trump supporters, and the media is only fomenting, encouraging, excusing, and hoping for more… The media are now openly calling Trump supporters “Nazis” and are blaming Trump for a mass murder he had nothing to do with. This, of course, is a form of harassment because it incites and justifies mob violence.

    Here is the list, so far, and remember that if any one of these things happened to a Democrat, the media would use the story to blot out the sun for weeks. Remember how crazy the media went over a nobody rodeo clown who wore an Obama mask, a GOP staffer who criticized Obama’s daughters? And yet, hundreds of Trump supporters are harassed and brutalized and the media only dutifully report them, if at all. That is because the media are desperate to normalize and justify violence and harassment against Trump and his supporters.

    As a society, we haven’t been accorded the opportunity to have an honest, comprehensive national conversation about transgender issues and whether individuals should be free to transition absent scientific proof. Debate has been carefully stifled by the proponents of all things transgender, issues are not presented as questions but foregone conclusions, and any credible opposition is “transphobia” and “hate” punishable by public humiliation—people lose their jobs, credibility, memberships in organizations; they’re excommunicated from social media, harassed, labelled, and doxxed if they dare question the trans-orthodoxy of the Democrat-Media Complex and LGBTQ Mafia.

    Ironically, there is no deference to science on these issues unless radical academics can contort the science to fit the cause.

    🛑🛑 UPDATE: no bill has been presented yet. That said, the discussion is disturbing and we should all take note.

    For those of you who aren’t up to date with politics/senate hearings, please listen:

    Yesterday (3-5-19) there was a SENATE MEETING. They were discussing Mandatory Vaccines on a FEDERAL LEVEL. Meaning, every adult and child in the US will be FORCED to take ALL vaccines that the CDC says to. You won’t even be able to say no to the flu shot! Don’t you enjoy having a choice about what’s injected into your body? That’s at jeopardy now.

    🛑🛑 No matter if you are pro-vaccine, or if you like to choose this one or that one but pass on others…even if you don’t have kids YOU should be worried.

    This is our first amendment that they’re trying to take away.
    It will no longer be a Pro/Anti vaxx decision anymore, because everyone will be FORCED.

    🛑🛑They talked about how to enforce it for adults 🛑🛑

    ⚠️Denying adults their ability to renew their driver’s license, professional licenses, and hunting/fishing license was suggested.

    ⚠️Not able to get or renew a passport.

    ⚠️Withholding tax returns. Not able to get insurance, etc…unless proof of vaccinations is submitted.

    And I’m not talking about your childhood vaccination records; it’s current vaccination records they will require: boosters on your childhood ones (because they wear off after a few years) proof of annual flu shots, and whatever other vaccine the government decides we should have.

    Believe it or not but this bill IS and WILL affect EVERY SINGLE AMERICAN FAMILY.

    ✅ Here’s how we can all help: Call this number 202-224-3121 every single day for the next 9 days and tell them your state and zipcode and then they’ll redirect your call and you tell them you DO NOT consent to mandatory vaccinations.

    This would be unconstitutional and take our rights away as sovereign people. We should always retain our right to medical freedom.

    Chemical Analysis of Woman

    Element: Woman

    Symbol: WO

    Discoverer: Adam

    Quantitative Analysis:
    Accepted at 36 – 28 – 36, though isotopes ranging from 25 -10 – 20 to 60 – 55 – 60 have been identified.

    Occurrence:
    Found wherever man is, but seldom in the highly reactive, energetic singlet state. Surplus quantities in all urban areas.

    Physical Properties:
    Undergoes spontaneous dehydrolysis (weeps) at absolutely nothing, and freezes at a moments notice. Totally unpredictable. Melts when properly treated, very bitter if not well used. Found in various states, ranging from virgin metal to common ore. Non-magnetic but attracted by coins and sport cars. In its natural shape the specimen varies considerably, but it is often changed artificially so well that the change is indiscernable except to the experienced eye.

    Chemical Properties:
    Has a great affinity for AU, AG, and C, especially in the crystalline form. May give violent reaction if left alone. Will absorb great amounts of food matter. Highly desired reaction is initiated with various reagents such as C(2)-H(5)-OH and sexy aftershave lotions. An essential catalyst is often required (must say you love her at least five times daily). Reaction accelerates out of control when in the dark and all reaction conditions are suitable. Extremely difficult to react if in the highly stable pure form. Yields to pressure applied to correct points. The reaction is highly exothermic.

    Storage:
    Best results are obtained between the ages of 18 and 25 years.

    Uses:
    Highly ornamental. Used as a tonic for low spirits. Used on lonely nights as a heating agent (if properly prepared).

    Tests:
    Pure specimens turn rosy tint if discovered in raw, natural state. Turns green if placed besides a better specimen.

    Caution:
    Most powerful reducing agent known to man (income and ego). Highly explosive in inexperienced hands. Specimen must be used with great care if experiments are to succeed. It is illegal to possess more then one permanent specimen, though a certain amount of exchange is permitted.

    Banking Bitches

    An oily, disreputable looking fellow walks into a bank with a large sack on his back. Seeing an open teller, the man walks up to the young lady and places the sack on the counter.

    “I want to open a fucking savings account!” the man grunts.

    “I am sorry sir, we prefer politer customers,” she replied, offended.

    “Okay, look I just wanna open a fucking banking account.”

    “I’m sorry, but you just can’t speak that way.”

    The supervisor, seeing the trouble went over to check on the situation. She got there and got the story from the teller. Trying another tack, she decided to handle the situation herself.

    “How can I help you?” she asked, all smiles.

    “Listen, I would like to open a FUCKING savings account!”

    “I am sorry, but we do not deal with people who use vulgar language.”

    Finally, the bank manager came over to settle the matter.

    “What is the matter here?” he asked.

    “Look,” replied the customer, “I just won 47 million dollars in the lottery and I wanted to open a fucking savings account to deposit all the cash in.”

    “Are these two bitches giving you trouble?” quickly replied the manager.

    The official list of types of pussy found throughout the land.

    1. Expensive pussy: Most pussy falls into this definition. Expensive pussy can be recognized by the following – fur coats, $500 dresses, spandex, bright colored shorts, and shirts with greek letters on them. 98% of the pussy found on the USC campus falls into this catagory.

    Advantages: If you can afford it, it will be great.

    Disadvantages: Many, mostly in the form of checking account depletion. Often not worth it.

    2. Cheap pussy: Very rare. Usually comes in the form of a girlfriend of yours who will not go away no matter what you do. Cheap pussy can be recognized by the following – she will often pay for dinner, understands when you are broke, calls every day, wants it constantly, easily hurt, but shakes it off.

    Advantages: Inexpensive, guaranteed, loving, will try anything once and sometimes twice. You’re lucky if you find this.

    Disadvantages: Won’t go away, possessive, bugs you all the time, can keep you from the tasks of finding other pussy, will eventually want to get married and/or have children soon thus ruining it. Often not worth it.

    3. Hired pussy: Found in the Hollywood area of Southern Cal and in every other large city in the US and abroad. Recognized by scanty clothes and come-hither looks. Expense varies greatly with the quality. The difference between Hired pussy and Expensive pussy is that the money is up-front.

    Advantages: You don’t have to stick around, won’t tell your girlfriend, doesn’t care who you are or what you look like, often very experienced, usually cheaper than Expensive pussy.

    Disadvantages: More expensive than Cheap pussy in the long run, risk of disease is high, is illegal in most areas and the risk of jail time is high. Often not worth it.

    4. Virgin pussy: This type is getting rarer each day. Recognized by conservative clothes, good manners, and a marked distaste for dirty jokes and porno movies. Can be very loving if you promise marriage, but will cause you more problems as you go along. Frustration level is high as Virgin pussy tends to want to stay that way for some unknown reason.

    Advantages: Risk of disease is very low, will offer a very tight “fit” if it gives in, sometimes open to new experience, will often offer “other” services if Virginity is to be maintained.

    Disadvantages: Usually will not give in until marriage, will cause discomfort upon use, not very imaginative, not usually using birth control which can cause “accidents,” can only be used once. Usually not worth it unless you’re into that sort of thing.

    5. Nympho pussy: Very rare. Recognized by the tendency to drag you by your balls into bed and going at it to the point of exhaustion. Very experienced, will teach you things you never knew. Expense varies depending on level of Nymphomania.

    Advantages: Will send you into la-la land, will try anything once.

    Disadvantages: You are probably not the only one, thus disease risk can be high, will tire you out and ask for more, can be unstable, will not give a steady relationship. Often not worth it.

    6. Frigid pussy: Less rare. See (4) for recognition. Difference is that this pussy will not yield no matter what. Any expense involved is simply wasted (unless you are into real frustration).

    Advantages: There are no advantages.

    Disadvantages: Too many to list here. Best to stay away once recognized. Never worth it.

    7. Innocent Nympho pussy: Rare. Recognized by being in a small, sweet, innocent package which you would never in a million years think would give in, but when it does, you are in for a hell of a surprise. Often mistaken for (4). Expense varies, but usually falls into the cheaper catagory.

    Advantages: The surprise is blissful. Always worth it. Keep it if you can.

    Disadvantages: If (4) is mistaken for (7), serious consequences may result. May or may not be faithful.

    8. Party pussy: Found at bars and at parties. Recognized by glass of wine in hand and bloodshot eyes. Will engage in group festivities while completely ripped. Expense usually covers drinks. Make sure you are not ripped as to better enjoy the experience.

    Advantages: Easy to obtain unless you are real unlucky. Be sure to say the right things.

    Disadvantages: Disease risk is high, will not usually remain faithful, the Support System may tend to puke all over you. Often not worth it.

    9. Nutsy pussy: Support System has psychological problems. Recognized by the fact that she will go out with you, then spill her problems on you. May tend to kill you while you sleep. Gives in for no apparent reason. Usually found as a quiet co-worker.

    Advantages: Easy.

    Disadvantages: Never really worth it.

    On Thursday, lesbian feminist Julia Beck testified before Congress against the gender identity provisions in the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). Meant to protect transgender people, these provisions actually act as a “misogynistic trojan horse,” undermining key protections for women and girls, Beck argued.

    “The first piece of U.S. legislation to even acknowledge the epidemic of violence against women is now a misogynistic Trojan Horse,” Beck declared. She argued that “all women and girls are oppressed on the basis of our female sex,” not their gender identity.

    World’s Megan Basham was really turned off by all the “girl-power pandering”: “There’s a moment in Captain Marvel where the girl-power pandering is so over the top it makes the rest of the movie pointless. Carol Danvers, aka ‘Vers,’ finally discovers the full range of her superpowers and, to the never-so-subtle strains of Gwen Stefani’s ‘Just a Girl,’ proceeds to pummel a battalion of alien bad guys single-handedly. Her abilities prove so dominant that she can seemingly do anything, be it fly to farthest reaches of space without protective gear or destroy intergalactic warheads with a single blow. Thus does the cause of female empowerment lay waste to old-fashioned storytelling notions like tension and surprise, otherwise known as … reasons for the audience to stay interested in what’s happening on the screen.”

    Mao unleashed university and high school students to weed out enemies and hold them to account. The students became the paramilitary Red Guards. They were instructed by the party to “clear away the evil habits of the old society” and extinguish what came to be known as “the four olds”—old ideas and customs, old habits and culture. “Sweep Away All Monsters and Demons,” the state newspaper instructed them.

    With a vengeance they did.

    In the struggle sessions the accused, often teachers suspected of lacking proletarian feeling, were paraded through streets and campuses, sometimes stadiums. It was important always to have a jeering crowd; it was important that the electric feeling that comes with the possibility of murder be present. Dunce caps, sometimes wastebaskets, were placed on the victims’ heads, and placards stipulating their crimes hung from their necks. The victims were accused, berated, assaulted. Many falsely confessed in the vain hope of mercy.

    Were any “guilty”? It hardly mattered. Fear and terror were the point. A destroyed society is more easily dominated.

    Another reviewer wrote, “Wasn’t expecting much going in and that’s what I got, not much. Brie Larson was a poor choice for the lead. She’s just not believable. I was bored all too often watching it.”

    But the reason why you can’t be too excited to visit a country largely populated by people of a slightly different genetic make-up than you is that you might “exoticize” them and you might expect them to deliver you some kind of spiritual uplift, which forces them to do unpaid labor as your Brown Gurus.
