Can Married Women be Happy?


If she feels that she settled, the answer is no.

The end.

 

Actually there is a bit more to it.  But that is the gist of it.  So what does settling mean these days?

It is really a question of this: can a young lady in some way, shape or form overcome the modern day witches brew of self-esteem on steroids mixed with unleashed hypergamy?  For the typical woman, this pretty much has to happen, unless you can marry Tom Brady.

How often does it happen?  I am not totally sure.   Most of societal forces are pushing against it.  For most, it is rather difficult to go against societal forces.

But what of those that do?  Some might just intellectually figure out the true situation, some might have had a upbringing (e.g religious) that encouraged humility, others might have been humbled in life and chose introspection as a way to figure it all out.

So where does this leave us?  We have lots of unhappy women.

Exit question — How many paths to happiness do modern women have?

    Women want men they can’t have, and all women are riddled with massive levels of anxiety/ self doubt et. so marrying them automatically implies you settled/ you are a beta

    it’s not that women have high self-esteem … few do … it’s that all women are telling individual women what to do, and they’re caving to the herd. “You deserve better!” “Don’t let him do *that* to YOU!” “You’re worth it, Girl!” and more … all the while the herd is cowering in their own homes.

    unless you can marry Tom Brady.

  3. This is the book my 11 yo boy’s teachers want us to buy for them to read over the next month:

    … this story is of a young 12 year old girl living in Pakistan and exposes the reader to the culture of this country in Central Asia which coincides with our study of Eastern World Geography. The main character loves to learn and puts the needs of her family before her own desires which are characteristics that we would look forward to discussing further with our students.

    In the email she asks if the parents will respond to a survey if they are “willing” to purchase the book. The survey actually just asks if you can buy the book by 4-2-20. So, I just didn’t answer the survey and replied to her email directly.

    “I am not interested in buying this book.”

    She’s already replied that she will see how she can “accomodate” my son in completing this unit.

    I really don’t think 11-12 yo boys have changed so much since I was kid that they’d want to read an entire book about 12 yo Muslim girls in Pakistan.

    What happened to the hardy boys? /S

    Eight to fifteen year old boys need adventure and skillz bookz.

    If the cub (and boy) scouts weren’t so cucked I’d say .. get’em to earnin’ badges.

    As for me .. I only wanted to read airplane and (old stories of) sailing (adventure) books.

    My favorite book is still “Stick and Rudder”.

    Conclusion .. NO WOMMINZ should be teaching boys / young men. They ain’t got the right tool-set.

    KH – cannot trust teachers to make wise or good book recommendations for our kids. the one time i didn’t read the book first was the last time i didn’t read the book first. it was such a terrible book choice that i wrote the principal and the superintendent and told the teachers that i didn’t even want my daughter to see the book in their classroom much less read or hear about it.

    “So where does this leave us? We have lots of unhappy women.”

    Sorry, the statement “We have lots of unhappy women.” only gets me into a laughing fit with a good dose of derisive mockery…..Women CHOOSE to be unhappy. Modern Western female unhappiness is a self inflicted and well deserved wound, the sniveling and bitching is their way to express chronic dissatisfaction and rebellion, no matter how well off they may be.

    Honestly, fewer and fewer men really give a fuck if women, married or not, are unhappy. These females need to relearn and perform the basics…submit to your husband and respect him as is his due, be responsible stewards for the things you are entrusted to manage (home, finances, children), a wife is a helper to her husband…..these modern cunts will not comply or obey, so they are unhappy….fuck ’em.

  9. Although the nationwide military draft was halted in 1973, the Selective Service System allows Congress and the president to tap a pool of conscripts if needed.

    The commission found that many young men were unaware of their obligation to register. Most men, the report said, register “incidentally” when they receive a driver’s license or apply for federal student aid.

    “For most men, registration is a passive process, with many men not even aware of the obligation for which they have registered,” the report said.

    The U.S. government requires men ages 18 to 25 to register with the Selective Service System.

    Definition of obligation
    1 : the action of obligating oneself to a course of action (as by a promise or vow)

    If I apply for a driver’s license I am obligating myself to follow the traffic and safety laws of that state.

    The government saying, “Do this or else.”, does not place me under any obligation to them.

    I bought a good bit of tonic water today, with quinine in it. And I already have enough tetracycline hydrochloride broad spectrum antibiotic to treat a heard of cattle. which combined together is my equivalent to the Wu-flu cure given in this article: https://www.nature.com/articles/s41422-020-0282-0

    Plus I’ve got my own little home pharmacy with a host of other effective antiviral substances at the ready. I just plan on getting exposed and hopefully getting over it quickly if I even develop symptoms. I find it funny that you can go out today and buy the cure for the Wu-Flu without a prescription, but you still can’t buy any toilet paper. Why buy myself the cure, when I can hoard T.P., Mountain Money, Rolled Gold. LOL

    With half a brain, you can be more prepared for this Wu-Flu, than the US CDC is.

    On average I take about 30 different supplement pills a morning, plus a number of things mixed into my coffee, and I have probably tested well over 400 different supplements on myself in the last 8 years, to try to find out what actually works. My health is a lot better than it was 8 years ago, and I have cured everything but my male pattern bald spot. I could do a whole blog on the things I’ve learned.
    But here are some free recommendations for daily health:

    Quit anything with fluoride
    Quit all trans-fats
    Don’t supplement Calcium
    Supplement iodine
    Supplement potassium via potassium bicarbonate or potassium chloride to lower high blood pressure.
    “Research” some form of Epitalon, it works! It even erased my hay-fever allergy.
    Take a lot of vitamin C
    Eat more protein in your diet
    Do some form of strength training at least weekly
    Take a teaspoon of black seed oil once a week, or every day if you are sick.

    Can Married Women be Happy?

    Yes.
    First she needs to be taught from a young age to be shamefaced and why she should be.
    Tertullian said: And do you not know that you are (each) an Eve? The sentence of God on this sex of yours lives in this age: the guilt must of necessity live too. You are the devil’s gateway: you are the unsealer of that (forbidden) tree: you are the first deserter of the divine law: you are she who persuaded him whom the devil was not valiant enough to attack. You destroyed so easily God’s image, man. On account of your desert … even the Son of God had to die.
    And she also needs to be taught to reverence and bring glory to the image of God.

    1 Corinthians 11:7 For a man indeed ought not to cover his head,[during prayer] forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man.

    Once she fully accepts that she is an inferior second class of human, a weaker vessel, fortunate to have the opportunity to become one flesh with the very image and glory of God, and that she can be saved by showing her faith through serving a husband as Lord, including the service of bearing him children, the sooner she can take joy in the uplifting role of getting to serve the God she loves through serving and loving and reverencing her man, if some man should so choose her to be his own.

    1 Timothy 2:15 Yet woman will be saved through bearing children, if she continues in faith and love and holiness, with modesty.

    That truth can set women free, free from their bondage to sin. With godliness and contentment comes great gain and enduring joy.

  21. Any thoughts on this blog comment I stumbled across…

    Girls, the quickest way to kill a man’s desire for you is to tell him about all the hot guys you’ve fucked. A guy who lays lots of girls is a hot guy, even to girls who know nothing else about him. Girls who have sex with a lot of guys are just gross.

    Christine thinks she rejected you because you’re unattractive. What she doesn’t realize is that male attractiveness is maybe one-third looks and two-thirds attitude, the latter being something men switch off in the presence of unattractive females. So 30-something women think men have all turned into dorky losers when in fact they’ve just stopped trying to have sex with her.

    Imagine chatting with some ugly dyke when a more attractive guy walks into the room, and suddenly her face lights up, thirty pounds of fat disappear from her waist, all her tattoos vanish, and her crew-cut blue hair turns a natural color and grows two feet longer. It’s sort of like that.

At that point, Joe went to full ramble mode. The video is only a bit more than thirty seconds in length, but it feels a lot longer.

    “While CPAP machines are not ventilators, and don’t have software to deliver assist control or pressure control ventilation, they may contain much of the hardware needed for certain types of ventilation. What they don’t have is the software. Normal CPAP machines deliver a max pressure of 20cm of water. (That’s not much, about 2% of atmospheric pressure.) Many ventilation patients use much less than that, but serious ARDS patients need that and more. Ventilators usually are rated to deliver over 40cm, though they don’t normally go to that level, as it’s dangerous. Researchers have discovered, though, that the blowers used in some CPAP models are capable of 45cm and up to 400 l/min of airflow, much more than is needed for CPAP, and enough for ventilating many ARDS patients.”

    The media have done even worse in the poll. And why wouldn’t they? They:

    Were caught carrying water for the Chinese government to criticize Trump.

    Tried to do silly gotcha stories on Trump for failing to keep proper social distancing while sitting close to other reporters.

    Slammed Trump for giving what they consider “false hope” about using malaria meds to help treat very sick patients.

    Demanded to know why he didn’t nationalize companies for supplies when companies are already helping.

    Used the pressers announcing how the government is responding and offering new information to grandstand.

    Called the president a xenophobe and racist for instituting a travel ban from China early in the crisis.

    Called Trump a racist for calling a virus from China a Chinese virus.

    Called him selfish for not doing getting a COVID-19 test even though his doctor didn’t think he needed one. It was negative.

    Accused Trump of not believing in science so people shouldn’t believe what he said on COVID-19.

    Used Chinese government talking points about that government’s response to the disease.

    Blamed Trump and “right wing media” of sending mixed messages in a National Emergency that changed by the hour.

    Encouraged other media not to air the president’s daily Coronavirus Task Force briefings deriding them as “dangerous.”

    Depicted minor differences in approach between Trump and his NIH pandemic expert as catastrophic.

    CINCINNATI —
    Cincinnati police are temporarily suspending in-person responses to certain 911 calls for service starting on Tuesday in an effort to limit the spread of COVID-19.

    Isaac said he reviewed the department’s essentials functions and modified the response plan “to reduce unnecessary contact between officers and the public to reduce the spread of COVID-19.”

    “I want to also assure everyone that if there’s an emergency situation, we will be there,” Isaac said.”

    Police will no longer respond to assault reports, unless a suspect is still present or the victim requires medical attention, breaking and entering reports unless a suspect is still present, menacing reports “unless suspect is expected or threatens to return or is part of the elements of domestic violence” or theft reports “where there is no possibility of immediate apprehension.”

    Police are asking victims to report those crimes through the online or telephone reporting system.

    Isaac said the announced calls for service do not require dispatch or a physical police response and will be referred for online reporting or telephone reporting when applicable.

    Issac issued a statement along with the response plan:

    “I want all of the residents and visitors to Cincinnati to understand that the Cincinnati Police Department is ready and able to respond to any emergency call from the public.”

    Yeah, they’ll respond. Just not in person. All the ED’s need to switch to this setting.

    China is a face culture, but the CCP’s face culture has Mafia rules. The CCP suffers from systemic ineptitude and authoritarian narcissism, but it doesn’t want the world to know. So CCP apparatchik police treated Wuhan’s conscientious doctors as criminals and suppressed their warnings. CCP thuggery and brutality halted local efforts to confine the virus and prevented responsible medical efforts from disseminating information that might help global researchers find cures and vaccines.

    My last paragraph sketches an alternative history that isn’t our gritty, deadly reality. We confront hard fact history: Beijing’s communists decided to let Chinese citizens die rather than confront the epidemic.

    More facts: Between late December and mid-January, an estimated 5 million people left, entered or passed through Wuhan. Hard consequence: The virus went from local Wuhan to global hell.

    One reason Mr. Trump’s opponents have had such a hard time damaging his connection with voters is that they still don’t understand why so many Americans want a wrecking-ball presidency. Beyond attributing Mr. Trump’s support to a mix of racism, religious fundamentalism and profound ignorance, the president’s establishment opponents in both parties have yet to grasp the depth and intensity of the populist energy that animates his base and the Bernie Sanders movement. . . .

    That a majority of the electorate is this deeply alienated from the establishment can’t be dismissed as bigotry and ignorance. There are solid and serious grounds for doubting the competence and wisdom of America’s self-proclaimed expert class.

    According to well-sourced Rio newspaper Extra, City of God gangsters have been driving round the slum, blaring out a recorded message to residents.

    “We’re imposing a curfew because nobody is taking this seriously,” the message said, according to Extra’s Tuesday story. “Whoever is in the street screwing around or going for a walk will receive a corrective and serve as an example. Better to stay home doing nothing. The message has been given.”

    Hospitals on the front lines of the pandemic are engaged in a heated private debate over a calculation few have encountered in their lifetimes – how to weigh the “save at all costs” approach to resuscitating a dying patient against the real danger of exposing doctors and nurses to the contagion of coronavirus.

    The conversations are driven by the realization that the risk to staff amid dwindling stores of protective equipment – such as masks, gowns and gloves – may be too great to justify the conventional response when a patient “codes,” and their heart or breathing stops.

    What the media instead are realizing is that they have lost control over the filtering that they are used to providing. They seek to spin the news rather than simply show it and report it. And they justify their bias as being part of a higher calling in the journalism profession as opposed to a glaring failure.

    The media that was able to push impeachment while the coronavirus spread throughout the world, that claimed concerns about it were racist, and that attempts to control its spread were xenophobic, now wants even more control over the message. Their plan to keep Americans in the dark about what the country’s top political and medical officials say unless it is filtered through a group of people who botched the 2016 campaign, the Russia collusion narrative, and the Kavanaugh confirmation hearing is a demonstration of something very dangerous.

    They don’t want to report the news. They want to control it. That is damaging and destructive to their own already hurting reputations but, more importantly, to public health itself.

    Police have had to ask these “concerned residents” to cease and desist.
    (it would be helpful if they posted the names of these residents…just asking for a friend)

    well this morning was off to a rather odd start,,,,I slept in a bit which is itself unusual. My Mrs woke me up because she was kinda anxious, all of the TV channels, almost every internet page, even the fucking radio is non-stop China Plague this and that. A steady diet of bad news can seriously mess with your head.
    Like I said, she was (past tense) anxious but is now sleeping peacefully after I reminded her that we have ample food and water stored, which she questioned at the time since she could go shopping whenever she wished. Last summer I installed steel security bars on all windows and steel doors for every ground level entrance, which also drew some comments since we live in a fairly nice neighborhood with almost no crime.
    Now nothing more is mentioned about the stockpiled medicines, first aid kits, multiple fire extinguishers, ammunition and weapons or backup power supplies. Before dropping off to sleep she asked me if we have any face masks in case we have to go outside? Yup, 2 boxes.

    Posted on BVs Twitter. Provides some much needed perspective.

    Still – it is not the graphics at that link which rule the day. It is whether any given hospital is overwhelmed at any given moment – Covid-19 patients in severe distress that exceed that particular hospital’s resources. It does that hospital no good that there are hospitals on the other side of the country with resources that they are not using. By the time they get the excess resources repositioned, the patient(s) who need them will be dead.

    For those who like to think carefully, that last paragraph defines the distribution problem. The “West Side Story” asks the question How do you solve a problem like Maria. The question facing governments is in that ballpark: How do you create a model that will tell you exactly 1.) which hospital is going to get overwhelmed?; 2.) when will that happen for certain?, and 3.) how do we transfer the needed resources from where they are not being used to where they are needed in time for the distressed patient(s) to use them?

    For those aquainted with math, modeling, and transportation networks, it quickly becomes obvious that there are no “good” answers to those three questions. Evidence suggests that folks with Covid-19 can appear to be reasonably OK, and go from that to dead in six hours or so. Or not. So how do you model that uncertainty, such that you can accurately pinpoint the hospital(s) that will need additional supplies and then get them the needed resources before they need them?

    What all of this is doing is teaching the folks paying attention that we are not gods. We cannot solve the capriciousness of this emergency just because we are a first-world country populated by self-described “well-educated” people who have a healthy self-esteem. None of that is doing folks any good at the moment in the face of the randomness of nature.

    That truth should inform the SJWs going forward. But it probably won’t.
    ————

    I will get into more detail when I can. For now, I will say this much.

    Wife is a nurse. Because of that, we know and are known by twenty or so well-regarded and highly skilled doctors in Beverly Hills – said doctors in private practice but connected to the UCLA Medical Center and Cedars-Sinai hospital. Most of these doctors are in a single building.

    Amongst these doctors: ten or so patients have come into the office and tested positive for Covid-19; very wealthy and well-known persons are panicked and demanding that the doctors prescribe the Malaria medicine and Z-Pack – a number of whom are not even patients of the doctor(s); several of these doctors have equipped themselves / are well-stocked with the malaria medicine and Z-Pack – and are stockpiling it for themselves and family, and the very wealthiest of their patients; most have stopped allowing patients to come to the office and are in a crash-course learning mode of how to do telemedicine. Wife has cut way back on personal exposure to patients and doctors, but has not reduced that to zero yet.

    One particularly close doctor friend: early forties; extremely bright heart specialist; got married to one of those Russian cutie-pies a few years ago; has a two-year old daughter and wife is pregnant; within the past year has published a book on heart health and was flown to Brunei by the Sultan to do health checkups on all his extended family (not unusual; many of these doctors have that happen, or the King and extended family of whatever country comes to the doctor in Beverly Hills). In sum, an extremely high-level individual in a first-rate city in a first-world company. But nature does not care.

    He is 2.5 weeks into a serious Covid-19 infection and may not survive. However, he is being treated by the doctor who has the largest supply of the malaria medicine and Z-pack. Don’t yet know the status of pregnant wife or his elderly parents, or my wife – all of whom had contact with him before he fell ill. None are showing symptoms at the moment. We indeed are living in interesting times. Not the imagined reality of the well-regarded Western Philosophers that many suggest we read. But the boots-on-the-ground, this is actually happening so how do we deal with it, reality.

    I will post updates as they occur.

    For Liz and anybody else interested in things Medical:

    I pulled this together for doctors and their staffs who are not accustomed to wading through governmentese and couldn’t make heads or tails of what they are supposed to be doing. Feel free to pass this to anyone you might know who is in the same spot. It doesn’t cover everything, but it points the doctor in the right direction.

    Emergency Telehealth Overview

    For those who don’t want to read this, note that the HIPPA laws protecting patient information have been loosened a good bit for the duration of this emergency.
    —————–

    I previously told of one of the doctors who had a patient cough directly into his face. That doctor is still doing well. The doctor who is ill is a different doctor. That doctor was infected by a patient who came in to be tested. That patient tested positive – and obviously infected the doctor.

    Doctors who would not ordinarily be interested in Telemedicine are being forced to investigate what it offers – as they attempt to balance staying well with still delivering patient care. My guess is that the practice of medicine is being forced to learn something new, nationwide, during this emergency. And the HIPPA requirements are being loosened in order to enable this. My guess is that, when the emergency is over, medicine, and the HIPPA laws will not go back to business as usual. At a minimum, those folks who discover they don’t have to drive to the doctor’s office just to get a perscription renewed will probably not be willing to go back to driving to the doctors office – when they know they can get it done via telemedicine. It will be interesting times in a different context.

  163. We’ve being doing Tele-medicine for several years now; video visits with NP’s for the general aches and pains, sniffles and coughs stuff. It can work pretty well for those scenarios.

    Doctors who charge A LOT OF MONEY for an office visit are not going to be able to charge A LOT OF MONEY for tele-medicine visits. The Sultan of Brunei ain’t gonna pay you $50k to skype examine himself and his concubines.
