Feminists And Federalism


The United States has a Federal System of government.  There are two entities with sovereignty, the Federal Government in Washington and the individual states.  It a bit tricky to run an outfit with two sovereign entities, but it has kind of worked so far.  Supposedly only  few responsibilities and powers (e.g. defense, inter-state commerce) are allocated for the Federal Government, with everything else reserved for the states.  It is said that under such a system, that states become a laboratory for democracy.  Presently, many supposedly super-smart educated people were surprised when state governors made the decisions about what would be open and closed during the pandemic, rather than the Federal Government.  Let us say that some got an education in Federalism, though for many it was probably just to complicated for them to understand.

As for Feminism, what kind of government would they like?  For the most part, they want a top-down government that issues fiats (e.g. from a Supreme Court).      This idea of the states being laboratories of democracy is most definitely not what they want.  There are two main reasons.  Firstly, pushing your agenda in fifty states is a lot of work with lots of complication and cost.  Secondly, if some states maybe adopt your agenda, while others don’t, this provides a chance to illustrate how dumb the agenda really is.  Best not to give states this choice.

Is the Feminist agenda dumb?  Has the parts implemented made them happier in the net case?  How have the kids done?   Perhaps women make more money individually and as a whole now, but once again, is there a net benefit?

Exit question — How are Feminists like ostriches?

    Happy versus content. (My definitions may not actually be correct, but I will define them here for clarity.)

    Happiness – a positive feeling that is felt at a particular moment.
    Contentedness – a long-term mental state of choosing to be satisfied with the role you have in life, and the husband/family/friends and possessions that you have. A person with contentedness may yet strive to improve their life, but continues to choose to be satisfied with whatever they do have. Chooses to think about what is good in their life (Phil 4:8).

    Feminism, and any other activist groups, especially groups seeking attention due to claimed victim status, can certainly gain happiness for the members. If nothing else, the members are getting attention, which is a positive experience, especially for immature people such as children and (many) women.

    In addition to the above, getting what they demanded and wanted, at least initially, will give many people an emotional boost, or at least a positive feeling of victory.

    Feminism has demonstrated over the decades that its members are not content; they act as if they have been greatly offended, and are very distraught with their roles in life. As such, being a member of such a group will significantly reduce their contentedness.

    In addition, many of the goals of the feminists are self-harming, contributing to a decrease in the pleasantness of their own lives, long-term. For example, wives previously had a cushy position, being cared for and provided for, with the only expectations being obedience, a pleasant personality, reasonable competence at domestic maintenance and child care, and regular, cheerful sex with their husbands.
    Now, women feel they are expected to achieve success in a husband’s role: leadership in the home, success in university and career. They also refuse the wife’s role for which they were created (Gen 2:18), giving additional problems due to misplacement.

    Previously, a virgin wife would be highly valued by her husband who took her youth and virginity. Now, women reject and are rejected repeatedly by numerous lovers before marriage. And at marriage, she is old and a harlot, so is much less valued by her husband. And at older marriage, she is less likely to be able to have children, thus giving disappointment as she cannot fulfill part of her natural role. And she may not even be able to marry, as she is an old harlot instead of a beautiful, young virgin. And she may not be able to marry because some men are more interested in pursuing the younger harlots than in her, since she is an old harlot.

    Women should be controlled and directed, for their benefit, first by their biological fathers and then by their husbands. And feminists should be recognized as having similar benefit to society as a person advising witchcraft.

    Michigan, California, New York… are the vision of things to come should Biden (or whichever Democrat) win in November. The Xi TB will still be around, Biden/Cuomo/whomever will announce a national emergency, and will implement what’s happening in the blue states nationwide. The governors and mayors have both said churches and synagogues will be closed for the foreseeable future, and DeBlasio in NYC has decreed protests to his decrees illegal.
    Should Biden win not only will certain jobs be “unnecessary”, so will certain people. Biden has already said he would close gun stores under emergency powers. We already see healthcare rationing happening… your grandpa’s cancer or heart surgery is non-essential, as opposed to the services of the local abortion clinic.
    The feminist agenda is not merely dumb, it is national suicide. And if the U.S. goes belly up the rest of the world is in for a bumpy ride.

    From our friend on the scene:
    Chicago Police are currently blocking the entrance to the PRIVATE bank parking lot across the street from Elim Pentecostal Church, to prohibit members from parking their cars there for the 7 pm service. The Church has had a contractual right to use this parking lot for the last 18 years. The Police confirmed that Mayor HeavyHand has ordered them to do this, after her street parking ban backfired against her this morning.

    The Police are now trespassing on private property and interfering with private contractual rights, not to mention grossly violating the Constitution. They are making our legal case better by the minute.
    Somewhere, the Founding Fathers weep and Stalin smiles.

    Enjoy your federal lawsuits.

    UPDATE: Someone smarted than us e-mailed the following:
    You realize the bank lot is Private Property and the police are being utilized to prohibit access (interfere) to an area that is the subject of a legal Contract between two individual entities (the bank and the church)? Most of the church people don’t live in the neighborhood, so they aren’t the ones street parking here or at that Romanian church. They are using bank lots and other places that are closed on Sundays. Legal Affairs dropped the ball big time on this one and a number of big name law firms are eager to take up these cases.
    Again, the governor’s executive orders and the mayor’s proclamations do not carry the weight of law. That’s why Fatass is headed to Springfield this week to attempt to get his EO’s authorized as Laws with criminal penalties.

    This was the scene in front of the Philadelphia Romanian Church this morning:
    City tow trucks arrived and yanked the vehicles of every single resident, including numerous elderly people and a more than a few nurses coming in from the night shifts and impounded them for violation of the signs that got posted Saturday with under twenty-four hours notice. The City also “closed” the private lot that the church used for parishioners in some half-assed attempt to force church-goers to park on the streets, streets listed as temporary tow zones to snatch their cars, too.

    We don’t know what the current parking situation is in Ravenswood (we think it’s Ravenswood), but last time we set foot in that area, Permit Parking was rampant along with a heavy concentration of three flats, meaning parking would be a problem, even if it wasn’t a Sunday. So all the residents WHO HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH THE CHURCH are on the hook for tickets and towing and damages to their cars – because we all know exactly how gently City tow drovers are with someone else’s property.

    This should be a wake-up call to all the residents who habitually vote for the Machine and “progressives.” It should also be a clarion call to the churches across the city as to how far the left will go to crush the faithful of all denominations. You are only useful to them as far as you obey orders and do what you’re told. If you don’t speak up now, expect the same to happen to you in short order.

    the results of a South Korean study of MODERATE patients who were given 3 different treatments, one of which was HCQ + AZ.
    “Results: Ninety-seven moderate COVID-19 patients were managed with hydroxychloroquine (HQ) plus antibiotics (n = 22), lopinavir-ritonavir (Lop/R) plus antibiotics (n = 35), or conservative treatment (n = 40). Time to viral clearance, as signified by negative conversion on PCR, after initiation of treatment was significantly shorter with HQ plus antibiotics compared to Lop/R plus antibiotics (hazard ratio [HR], 0.49; 95% confidence interval [95% CI], 0.28 to 0.87) or conservative treatments (HR, 0.44; 95% CI, 0.25 to 0.78). Hospital stay duration after treatment was also shortest for patients treated with HQ plus antibiotics compared to other treatment groups. Subgroup analysis revealed that mean duration to viral clearance was significantly reduced with adjunctive use of antibiotics compared to monotherapy (HR 0.81, 95% CI, 0.70 to 0.93). While both HQ and Lop/R showed side effects including nausea, vomiting, and elevation of liver transaminases, none were serious.”

    So Trump is right.

    Regarding HCQ, the fully effective course is HCQ + AZM + Zn. The Zinc is a necessary component because it seems to interfere with the ability of the virus to get into the cells. So when people say that HCQ doesn’t work, they are lying by omitting the rest of the treatment. This has been a bit of an revalation to me how many otherwise intelligent men still listen to the media and refuse to do their own research.

    I know the answer to the question, “What do women want?”

    “It doesn’t matter,” or, “Who cares,” if you are being flippant. Women can’t beat men in a fight, so men ultimately decide what is permitted. We don’t have a bitchy woman problem, so much as we have a weak man problem.

    We don’t need to deal with women to beat femenism. We have to beat the men who enable it. In the meantime, we have to deal with women and the best way to do that is to command them and compel them. They like that sort of thing; it makes them feel safe.

    Weak men create bitchy women. Single-moms and absent fathers create weak men.

    Not just weak men, but corrupt and evil men as well. First thing to ending the cancer of feminism is to take away the vote and the ability of women to hold office. That will actually help a lot with the problems of tyrannical government, once it doesn’t have the electoral support of tens of millions of Karens. This is necessary, but nowhere near sufficient on its own.

    It would take at least one generation but more like two or three to get the West turned around, and it isn’t going to happen without some serious shit going down.

    In the true spirit of, “Never let a crisis go to waste.” lots of Lefties decided to see how far they could push before people started to push back.

Crush all resistance in the first week to ten days, and they’ll gain almost complete victory with little mopping up left to do.

    YouTube on Wednesday reinstated a video it has previously censored in which several medical doctors suggested that the drug hydroxychloroquine might be useful in treating coronavirus, with the company reportedly claiming at the time of censorship that the presentation was “dangerous.”

    The video report, presented by Sharyl Attkisson at Full Measure News, examined the possible benefits of hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for COVID-19 and the possible financial interest some parties have in downplaying the drug and promoting a separate treatment called remdesivir.

    “Shutting down entire states, including vast uninfected rural swaths, is the economic equivalent of burning witches or sacrificing virgins to appease angry viral gods. Because politicians have no liability for the economic damage they inflict, they have no incentive to minimize the disruptions they decree. . . . Even New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, who callously compelled nursing homes to accept COVID patients, will have no legal culpability for a policy that contributed to more than 5,000 nursing home deaths in his state. Pennsylvania Health Czar Rachel Levine issued a similar order, contributing to thousands of nursing home deaths, and then removed her own 95-year-old mother from a nursing home to keep her safe.”

    Timing also plays a role. Emerging evidence suggests COVID-19 patients are most infectious for a short period of time. Entering a high-risk setting in that period may touch off a superspreading event, Kucharski says; “Two days later, that person could behave in the same way and you wouldn’t see the same outcome

    Tuesday was also a food prep day:
    4 whole chickens, baked, deboned, and frozen.
    4-5 large zip bags each of fresh broccoli and cauliflower, cleaned, cut up, and frozen (i usually buy organic frozen, but they were out, so fresh it was).

    But lost amid the adulation has been one troubling fact. It was an order from Cuomo’s Department of Health—backed up in public by the governor—that was directly responsible for a large share of the massive death rate in facilities that cater to the elderly. The March 25 order handed down by Cuomo’s Health Department mandating that those recovering from the illness could not be rejected by nursing homes set in motion the events that inflated the state’s death COVID-19 death tolls.

    The implication of this rule, which was apparently strictly enforced, was that facilities had no choice but to admit carriers of the contagion. The results of this blunder were as brutal as they were predictable.

    I am starting to get scared of “science”.

    Not the scientific method that I grew up with of hypothesis, proof, and conclusion. But this strange and questionable “science” upon which public policies are now getting based. It is starting to remind me all too much of other policies based on “science” in the past. Historically, when public policies have been based in the science of the time, the policies have often led to dangerous and painful results.

    A team of Canadian scientists believes it has found strong strains of cannabis that could help prevent and then treat coronavirus infections

    Heh, I have a (weird, mental) friend I’ve known since a few assignments ago. Her husband flew the Osprey in the military, now flies for American. She was a nurse, became addicted to opiates (started for pain management). At any rate, when I knew them in Florida she was obese and opiate addicted. She moved to CO to smoke pot. I thought she’d turn into a pot smoking whale on the couch. But no! She lost sixty pounds, and got off most of her medication. Improved her marriage a great deal. She’s still a shopping addict and mentally disturbed, but it’s easier to put up with from a skinny woman than a fat ass.
    I don’t smoke, but I did start using CBD oil (topically). My back pain is gone! Sleeping better!

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but Atlanta is not burning. Bodies are not piled up in the streets. Hospitals in Georgia are not being overwhelmed; in fact, they are virtually empty. There is no mad rush for ventilators (remember those?). Instead, men, women, and children in the Peach State are returning to some semblance of normal life: working outside their homes, going to restaurants and bars, getting haircuts, exercising, and most important, spending time with their friends and families and worshipping God. The opening that began more than three weeks ago is continuing apace.

    Oh, my apologies, you were waiting for bad news? Sorry, I forgot, we were actually not supposed to be rooting for the virus. Despite the apparent relish behind headlines like “Georgia’s Experiment in Human Sacrifice,” one assumes that most Americans, even the ones most committed to omnidirectional prophecies of doom, were actually hoping this would happen. While it really is a shame that we do not get to gloat about the cravenness and stupidity of yet another GOP politician, I think on balance most of us will be glad to hear that Gov. Brian Kemp was not badly wrong here.

    More significant is the dysfunctions in the West’s relationship with China. Like the formation of the EU, bringing China and its totalitarian communist regime into the World Trade Organization was a milestone in the expansion and consolidation of the New World Order. China’s role in the pandemic, particularly in obscuring the origins, scope, and infectability of the outbreak, and in attempting to blame it on the U.S., confirmed what more than 25 years of its bad behavior should have taught us: an illiberal, culturally different country ruled by ruthless autocrats cannot be trusted to abide by the terms of an institution based on principles and values it does not share.

    DeSantis: Our data is available; our data is transparent. In fact, Dr. [Deborah] Birx has talked multiple times about how Florida has the absolute best data. So any insinuation otherwise is just typical partisan narrative trying to be spun, and part of the reason is that because you got a lot of people in your profession who waxed poetically for weeks and weeks about how Florida was going to be just like New York. “Wait two weeks, Florida’s going to be next!” “Just like Italy. Wait two weeks!”

    Well, hell, we’re eight weeks away from that, and it hasn’t happened. Not only do we have a lower death rate — well, we have way lower deaths generally — we have a lower death rate than the Acela corridor, D.C., everyone up there. We have a lower rate than the Midwest: Illinois, Michigan, Indiana, Ohio. But even in our region: Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Florida has the lower death rate, and I was the number one landing spot from tens of thousands of people leaving the number one hot zone in the world to come to my state.

    So we’ve succeeded, and I think that people just don’t want to recognize it because it challenges their narrative; it challenges their assumption, so they gotta try to find a bogeyman; maybe its that there are black helicopters circling the Department of Health. If you believe that, I got a bridge in Brooklyn I’d like to sell you.
