Something You Won’t See Today


Check this out,

Green Acres is the place to be.
Farm livin’ is the life for me.
Land spreadin’ out so far and wide
Keep Manhattan, just give me that countryside.

New York is where I’d rather stay.
I get allergic smelling hay.
I just adore a penthouse view.
Dah-ling I love you, forgive me Park Avenue.

…The chores.
…The stores.
…Fresh air.
…Times Square

You are my wife.
Good bye, city life.
Green Acres we are there.

Let us figure out all the things that are wrong here.

  1. No “correct thinking” person is supposed to think that farm land is better than the obviously superior Manhattan; which is where all of the best people live.
  2. The wife admits that she loves her husband.  Especially a Patriarchy Type of husband, being a former big time law firm partner.
  3. When he reminds her that she is his wife, she follows his lead.

What would happen if this was made today?  This is just so far out of what is possible today, I am having difficulty imagining the impact.   Perhaps you people could be of help here.

    Actually, I’d say multiple of my post-divorce girlfriends would have been delighted to follow me into the great unknown. It was I, not the girls, who thought it would never work. So I messed that up. I think women are hungry for a man with a Big Green Tractor, out someplace Where All the Cowboys Have Gone. Granted, they would have insisted on a NYC pied-a-terre, but so what? Like I wouldn’t have enjoyed that. I would re-write this aspect of my history if I could.

    My point is that the good women understand this, and if a younger man — like my (hoped for future) son-in-law said, “I want to make cheese in upstate NY”, I’d say, “Fine. Keep your apartment in Brooklyn and then hit it hard. My daughter will not change and I’ll be out to help you when they’re calving.”

    My daughters birthday is coming up. I’m giving both of them gifts. I hope this means more than a letter of approval or something. I’m getting them matching Ray-Bans, model I wear, an 1830 Bible in as-new condition, some novels and her, a cover-up for the beach (she’s inheriting land in the Hamptons). The glasses are the point. I want them to go out for breakfast in East Hampton wearing the same shades. It’s either goofy or an articulate gesture on my part, that they accept. If they don’t marry, it won’t be because her famously difficult father didn’t endorse the notion. I hope.

    Naomi Wolf’s long, ludicrous career has followed a simple formula. She audits herself for some speck of dissatisfaction, arrives at an epiphany — one that might contravene any number of natural laws — and then extrapolates a set of rules and recommendations for all women. Predictable controversy ensues; grouchy reviews and much attention. Over the years her batty claims have included that a woman’s brain can allow her to become pregnant if she so desires, even if she is using birth control; that women’s intellects and creativity are dependent on their sexual fulfillment and, specifically, the skillful ministrations of a “virile man”; and that writing a letter to a breech baby will induce it to turn right side up

    Jane and Arlene are outside their nursing home, having a drink and a smoke, when it starts to rain. Jane pulls out a condom, cuts off the end, puts it over her cigarette, and continues smoking.

    Arlene: What in the hell is that?

    Jane: A condom. This way my cigarette doesn’t get wet.

    Arlene: Where did you get it?

    Jane: You can get them at any pharmacy.

    The next day, Arlene hobbles herself into the local pharmacy and
    announces to the pharmacist that she wants a box of condoms.
    The pharmacist, obviously embarrassed, looks at her kind of strangely (she is, after all, over 80 years of age), but very delicately asks what size, texture, brand of condom she prefers.

    i talked to my dad for awhile on the phone. he’s trying to be kind about my mother, which i find interesting. “She’s becoming more masculine in her appearance,” he says, among other things. so i tell him the things she has said to me … including things she told me she did to me when i was very little that i don’t remember anymore – terrible, horrible things.

    and he said, “I had no idea she did those things. [pause] I was working a lot then. [pause] My commute was two hours each way . . . . . . . . .”

    and i thought a lot of things … but mostly i thought how important it is that a man chooses well the woman who bares his children, the woman who raises them while he’s working so hard.

    i told him some more things she’s done and said more recently – as in the last twelve years or so … things he was not aware of at all. and i said, “Why would I want to have anything to do with someone who’s done and said those things?”

    his reply … “I don’t know. I sure wouldn’t.”

    and he stopped trying to defend her.

    she was VERY beautiful and VERY attractive and VERY feminine in appearance when she was young. i can see why he was attracted to her. but … sheesh … what she’s turned into.

    – – –

    several hours later Aspie Girl came in while i was in the kitchen working. she’d been learning the difference between sociopaths and psychopaths … learning how children who are abused are more likely to be abusers. i told her that when i was in therapy all those years ago i tried to defend my parents to my therapist saying, “But, they were abused . . .” and he stopped me and said, “Ame, you were abused, too, but you don’t abuse your children. It’s a choice, Ame. They chose to do that. That was their choice.”

    i haven’t figured my dad out yet. i was in the car when i had this convo with him and had it on speaker phone – Oldest was with me. we remarked after i hung up how he seemed … normal. sincere. real. these are not attributes i would have given him even several years ago. i’m cautious. very, very cautious.

    but i have to give him some credit that he finally stopped trying to defend my mother after i told him these things.

    First, from the start of this case I have questioned the aggressive and demeaning attacks on the Gibsons as a defense strategy. There is no evidence that the Gibsons did anything wrong, unless you consider stopping people from stealing something wrong. That lawful act of protecting one’s property nonetheless has devastated a five-generation business because of Oberlin College racial politics. Gibson’s Bakery survived two world wars, the Depression, the turmoil of the 1960s, and the so-called Great Recession, but it may not survive Oberlin College’s social justice warriors and their faculty and administrative enablers. If the jury understands this, the other pieces of the case fall into line, factually and legally.

    Second, I never cease to be amazed at the arrogance of the college community as reflected in the defense that Gibson’s Bakery was close to worthless. It’s the arrogance of the credentialed. A business that is in its 5th generation, and that currently supports three of those generations, is something of value. A business that employed almost a dozen local employees prior to this incident is something to value.

    Last week, my Self-Esteem Team attended a lecture at University College London by Martin Seager, who is part of a research team studying male psychology. In it, Seager argued that psychology suffers from “gender blindness”, in that the profession is reluctant to consider the possibility that men have specific needs. Indeed, Seager argued, we are reluctant to think of men as a gender in their own right at all, thanks to the increasing prevalence of pop-feminism and a widely held and false notion that all men are inherently privileged, regardless of their socio-economic circumstances

    The next stage is a punitive damages hearing, since the jury found the defendants acted with intent and malice. A separate punitive damages hearing is required under the Ohio Tort Reform legislation that passed several years ago. The point is to keep some of the more inflammatory evidence that does not go to liability or compensatory damages away from the jury during the initial deliberations. That additional evidence relevant to punitive damages could include information as to the wealth of the defendants, but also additional information supporting the need for punishment.

    In this context, there is nothing more baffling than a statement sent to alumni after the verdict by Donica Thomas Varner, Oberlin College’s Vice President and General Counsel.

    The statement was contained in a mass email sent to alumni (and possibly others) criticizing the jury verdict and repeating the same stale defenses that failed at trial (emphasis added):

    Dear Members of the Oberlin Community:

    I am writing to update you on the lawsuit that Gibson Bros., Inc. filed against Oberlin College and Vice President and Dean of Students Meredith Raimondo in the Lorain County Court of Common Pleas in November 2017.

    Following a trial that spanned almost a full month, the jury found for the plaintiffs earlier today.

    We are disappointed with the verdict and regret that the jury did not agree with the clear evidence our team presented.

    Neither Oberlin College nor Dean Meredith Raimondo defamed a local business or its owners, and they never endorsed statements made by others. Rather, the College and Dr. Raimondo worked to ensure that students’ freedom of speech was protected and that the student demonstrations were safe and lawful, and they attempted to help the plaintiffs repair any harm caused by the student protests.

    As we have stated, colleges cannot be held liable for the independent actions of their students. Institutions of higher education are obligated to protect freedom of speech on their campuses and respect their students’ decision to peacefully exercise their First Amendment rights. Oberlin College acted in accordance with these obligations.

    While we are disappointed with the outcome, Oberlin College wishes to thank the members of the jury for their attention and dedication during this lengthy trial. They contributed a great deal of time and effort to this case, and we appreciate their commitment.

    Our team will review the jury’s verdict and determine how to move forward.

    Donica Thomas Varner
    Vice President, General Counsel & Secretary

    ……..

    The grim reaper creeping up does all manner of things to an old man’s thinking.

    i’m sure you’re right, Ton. there’s part of me that wants to force him to continue to ‘pay’ for all he did. there’s the other part that’s just tired, and all i’ve ever wanted was for my parents to love me – i believe we’re hardwired to need our parents … that we’re born with places inside us that only they can fill, and if they don’t, they remain empty.

    if he’s nearing the end and wants to make amends, do i allow him to do so? if he’s sincere, then i think i get a whole lot more benefit than he does, or at least equally so. i had hoped that my first husband would apologize on his death bed someday … that he’d finally be willing to tell the truth to himself and to me. but, of course, he never got a ‘death-bed,’ and i’m the one who lives on with that longing that will never be fulfilled. my daughters, though … about four months before he died he allowed them each about 20 minutes alone with him at a restaurant. they felt like he ‘made peace’ with them, and that has carried them in powerful ways since he died; we believe it was a gift from God to my daughters.

    so the balance is … what does the person who wounded you want vs what you need … IF they are sincere.

    forgiving is not an option, biblically. trust and sincerity must be proven. he probably doesn’t have years and years to prove that, but i’m honestly shocked at what i’ve seen. it was good Oldest was listening in on speaker phone – he didn’t know she was listening till the end. she’s very critical and has no problem speaking her mind. she, too, was surprised that he sounded sincere.

    that he stopped defending my mother was huge – he’s always made excuses. he stopped. he realized there were no excuses for what she did. that he admitted she did things he didn’t know was also huge b/c he’s always covered for her. anyway … there are several other things i’m not sharing, but they’re all similar – he’s proving … and i’m watching closely and listening to everything.

    – – –

    there is another thing this has all forced me to consider … how much of what i remember over the years was manipulated and distorted by my mother to put the blame on my father? i’m NOT saying he was innocent or did no wrong … just wondering if there is much he’s not really guilty for that she manipulated in such a way to dump the guilt on him? it would line up with all i’ve learned out here about women … and, sadly, little memories that are shooting out seem to prove this.

    the good thing is he lives 1200 miles away, and he’s not forcing himself into my life. i have time to digest and analyze and gain perspective after every interaction with him. so far … he’s proving.

    @Ame: Someone told the story of being in a crowded coffee shop when someone bumped into him from behind, spilling hot coffee on the back of his suit. White-hot rage flared immediately as he turned with clenched fist to strike whoever had been so clumsly. What he found was a blind man, flustered and embarrassed and apologetic. Seeing this, the man’s white-hot anger subsided as quickly as it had flared. It was replaced by a feeling of compassion as he helped the blind fellow out of the crowd and over to a table where there were fewer folks around.

    Context matters. Context shapes our attitudes.

    Our parents (anybody, really) cannot ever be who we want them to be. They can only be who they are. They can only give us what they have to give. When we truely understand that, it helps turn the white-hot anger into compassion (so the theory goes).

    Ame, I think you and I have been at this point in the conversation before. Assuming that you outlive your father, what will you realize fifteen years from now that you could have done now but did not, re. your father (rhetorical question) You are going to be the one who has to live with your memories. Figure out what you would regret not doing, and realize that you still have time to do it. The truth is, whatever you do now is more about creating memories that you can live with and less about redoing the past in order to get rid of old hurts.

    For what it is worth (and your words imply that you understand this), your father seems to have been a regular / traditional guy. Which is, there were probably many things that your mother did or thought that never registered with him. Which leads to this thought: whatever he did to you was probably unintentional, because he did not know what was going on. Whatever you are getting ready to do to him in the near future is going to be intentional. Fifteen years from now, you will think about that distinction (his, unintentional; yours, intentional). Make sure that what you do now, intentionally, is what you can live with down the road.

    And remember that you have two daughters watching you. Fifteen years from now they will likely comment on this time period. Will they praise you or criticize you? That is also something to consider (in terms of reducing future drama) in your figuring out how you want to respond to your father now.

    Again, the choice is not about redoing the past to get rid of old hurts (can’t do that). The choice is about setting up the future (in terms of your memories and your daughter’s comments to you). If you take that future point of view, it might help you decide what to choose in the “now” that you have left with your father.

    Richard – those are some really good thoughts; thank you for sharing them.

    when i was in therapy all those years ago, my counselor told me that lots of therapists work on breaking down things/relationships, but they’re not always good at rebuilding them. he made sure i was equipped for the future *possibility* of reconnecting with my parents.

    i say *possibility* because it’s not always safe to do so – physically, emotionally, spiritually. i’ve tested that over the years … thrown out a little ‘bait’ here and there (for lack of a better word right now), and it’s not been safe with my father … until now. this is the furthest he’s been able to get with me b/c he hasn’t been safe for me to get this far before. i am progressing very, very slowly and cautiously. honestly, it’s fragile, and if he shows me that he’s insincere or lying at all on any level, he’s done. but if he’s real, and this is real, then he has nothing to worry about.

    i made that hard-line choice years ago – the … would i be okay if they died without reconciliation? yes. i would not like it, but i would be okay … b/c it wasn’t simply about reconciliation at all costs … it was about keeping me safe.

    my mother continues to not be a safe person for me. ironically she told me once that when her mother died it was a huge relief for her. i’ve wondered since if she ever realized that she’s living a life where she is passing that same legacy down to me.

    i do believe and know my dad did some things, some bad things. but i’m beginning to wonder how much my mother actually did and manipulated to look like he did them. there are some things … many things … i do not want to remember. but … i also do not want to accuse a man of things he did not do.

    one thing my daughters have learned since their dad died … we’re gonna do both bad and good in this life, so live a life where the good far outweighs the bad. sadly, their dad got that backwards. gratefully, my daughters have learned and chosen to remember both yet focus on the good.

    Headhunter … i didn’t even think to look at the book. from the blurb on amazon:

    Using data from the rapidly changing fields of neuroscience and nutrition, The Happiness Diet shows that over the past several generations, small, seemingly insignificant changes to our diet have stripped it of nutrients—like magnesium, vitamin B12, iron, and vitamin D, as well as some very special fats—that are essential for happy, well-balanced brains. These shifts also explain the overabundance of mood-destroying foods in the average American’s diet and why they predispose most of us to excessive weight gain.

    it’s been very interesting working with our Nutritionist. we’ve pretty much overhauled our entire diet – NO dairy, NO grains except a small portion of Ezekiel bread (sprouted bread), NO sugar – use minimal amts of local, raw honey and stevia drops. NO processed foods at all. it’s been interesting.

    The Happiness Diet is big on cheese and real butter, which is good news for me since giving up dairy would be next to impossible.

    i totally get that. thankfully, we get to keep real, whole butter – i buy Kerrygold. it would be hard to give up butter!

    dairy was probably half our diet. it was a HUGE change. HUGE. and a year ago you could not have convinced me i needed to do so. my Husband does keto, so he gets to keep cheese, but my daughters and i are completely dairy-free, minus the whole, real, kerrygold butter 🙂

    but . . . pain is a powerful motivator. i ended up getting really sick last summer, but all my labs were normal. when i found this Nutritionist doc, the first thing she did was take me off all dairy. i was already gluten-free, but she had me go completely grain-free. my daughters since followed. now i can’t eat even one bite of dairy or grains or i get super sick 😦

    she said that all dairy in the US is sub-par … i guess from all the chemicals we’ve been putting on our foods since the 50’s, which gets into the soils, which the animals eat, etc. she said that even raw milk, which we had bought for a long time trying to help my Aspie-Girl, was not as healthy as we need it to be. apparently, dairy causes lots of inflammation in our bodies. boo.

    my Aspie-Girl has had full-gut issues and pain since she was born … continuous, never-ending pain. i’ve tried so.many.things to help her … lots of specialists and tests. nothing helped. a few months or so off dairy and grains plus whole-food nutritional supplements, and she is completely pain free. for the first time in her life. it’s a miracle, really.

    so … we’re sold. we don’t like it b/c we LOVE cheese, but we know it’s best for us.

    I had never eaten walleye until a few years ago and if anyone (someone who knows how to fish) ever offers you fresh walleye broiled or steamed (I steam a lot of fish in foil with butter/olive oil, lemon, herbs: 17 mins 450F poke a few holes in the top of the foil, great quickie bachelor meal), stop whatever else you are doing.

    I even eat frozen walleye “bites” that are deep fried. Problem is, though, since I started reading about seed oils (and retching, virtually), I struggle to enjoy anything deep-fried, and that includes a personal, Sunday morning favorite, deep-fried Tater Tots. I ordered them yesterday and could only get a few down. I just tasted old corn oil, so that comfort food is gone.

    I think there’s actually a lot of science suggesting that seed oils are nasty, and about as good for one’s male engine as ethanol is in an internal combustion engine. So at home it’s lard, butter (or ghee), olive oil, and coconut oil, for me. The coconut oil doubles as effective massage etc. etc. oil. I find making my own clarified butter really fun and calming, in a childlike sort of way. If I had young children or grandchildren, that would be one of our first kitchen projects, clarifying butter. I think a seven year-old would be fascinated. Then you take the new production and make a fluffy omelet with none of the brown searings that make restaurant omelets so rubbery.

    Oberlin College, in the minds of the jury, wasn’t guilty only of what they did, but also what they didn’t do. They had opportunities early on to see the bullshit flying in their faces — thrown by the social justice warrior students – and didn’t have the good sense to see a basic problem and recognize the simplest of solutions.

    What happened here is that Oberlin College and many universities have lost the understanding of their identity and basic purpose, and when that happens with most of us, when we don’t know who we are, we tend to do stupid things. That’s what happened here.

    A few years ago, they had students saying they wanted finals cancelled because they were protesting minority men being shot by police in nearby Cleveland; in Dec. of 2015, the school’s black student union published 14 pages of racial accusations against the school with 58 demands to fix them; and the school had students thinking that the sushi in their cafeteria was “cultural appropriation” and unfit for eating because of that.

    Instead of the school telling their students, “You are all crazy, and get back to studying,” they took on the “these poor snowflakes need our support” attitude.

    It was the tail wagging the dog in the end, and ended up how most things like that do.

    I think Trump is trying to force these, “Sanctuary Cities,” to lay in the bed they made. Which is the right thing to do when entire cities decide to disobey laws. When our police chief decided to go against what 97% of his men wanted, and declared we were NOT going to enforce our laws, but instead, harbor unvetted immigrants and illegals, this is what he gets.

    And when the people didn’t stand up to it, and with how they routinely vote for idiots like, “Beto,” lol and… AND JUST elected a super corrupt Mayor, for the second time, who also refuses to allow our police to enforce the laws, for another 2 years of greatly increased crime… this is what they deserve.

    And San Antonio was never really a Utopian society. Reading through Olmsted’s firsthand historic account when he was spending his time here, studying the economy and people groups and environment and cultural atmosphere, it was dangerous and awful even just 200 years ago, with constant ethnic fighting, even more extreme than it is now, back then.

    Online it’s also saying Ghee is lactose-free, so good for non-dairy households and kids with sensitivities. ❤

    ” I find making my own clarified butter really fun and calming, in a childlike sort of way. If I had young children or grandchildren, that would be one of our first kitchen projects, clarifying butter. I think a seven year-old would be fascinated. Then you take the new production and make a fluffy omelet with none of the brown searings that make restaurant omelets so rubbery.”

    This is awesome, BV, and I’m sure you’re saving a lot of money doing it that way.

    An article about Ghee having an essential fatty-acid that aids in fat-burning metabolism. Pretty awesome stuff.

    Masterpiece Cakeshop is again under fire, now the subject of a third discrimination lawsuit alleging that owner Jack Phillips “discriminated” against a customer by refusing to make a cake for an unspecified event.

    Guess they’re never going to let this poor guy and his family alone. Bastards.
    Went there again for another cake a few weeks back (it was last minute, so I just bought one that was already made, and a few brownies).

  134. If there was ever a case for crowd-funding a guy’s legal bills this would be it (cough… lawyers suck… cough…). Frankly, what this guy needs is a reasonable Tony Soprano type (do they exist?) to be his “negotiator”. Some one files a bullshit suit, Tony shows up and “negotiates” on his behalf with the plaintiff paying Tony’s fees.
