In the movie Rudy, we have an un-athletic young fella who dreams of playing Notre Dame football. He works hard, does not really become skilled at all, but finally makes it on the field for one play.  This is the climax of the movie.

Early in the movie, Rudy’s girlfriend shows him this modest home.  She suggests that they buy it and get married.  Rudy says no, he is going to play Notre Dame football, and not be very good at it.  The girlfriend, of course, is disappointed.  

This movie was set in the late 1960s.  Back then, it seems that young women wanted to get married young and have children.  Or, at least some of them.  Perhaps a bit fewer than a decade before.  I am sure that modern women are contemplating “What was she thinking”.

Probably the movie wont be banned because after all, she didn’t get her wish.  Perhaps it is assumed that she then saw the light and spent her 20s on career and fun. 

Which leads to the question: Would she have been happier (especially in the long run) getting married and having a family, or spending her twenties as a modern woman is prescribed to do? 

Exit question: What type of woman these days wants to marry young?

  1. Just a handful of women want to get married young. Religious/traditional backgrounds or delusional/no other options types.

    Medical officers have effectively closed or threatened all migrant farm bunkhouses in two of our best cash crop regions because an Asymptomatic testing program found positive cases.
    They were asymptomatic like 80% of covid patients and the WHO has said asymptomatic don’t spread. So because of a 0.02% chance of morbidity by covid you are shutting the food supply.

    At this point weeding, tending and early harvesting is in full swing. Haying is done in another week. Perfect rains and mild heat should have us a bumper crop in hay, ground fruits like strawberries and tubers. Instead lack of seeding has many fields fallow.

    The migrants already lost two weeks pay after being required to 14 day isolate upon arrival. Now they are actively hiding from the testers as if they were illegals hiding from INS.

    I personally know several farms who are going to get less than half yields because of lack of labour. One said fuck it and plowed under 80 acres of melons and cucumber because there was no way he would have labour to harvest so why waste more resources tending it.

    I sent Mrs to costco specifically to pack the freezer with frozen veg. I may put a second on the porch. Stock up now because the 2020 harvest is gonna be terrible.

    The powers making these decisions look thru a city lense.
    They dont understand you cant stop growing, milking, calving, pasturing for two, three or four weeks. Its not a plant you can just shut. Shut a farm you literally have to cull the “machinery”.

    Know what you call a shut farm? A wood lot.

    Rant over.

    Seriously though, go buy what fruit and veg you can now.

    Short and long run both early marriage and children is the path to happiness for women, especially if they are otherwise mentally and spiritually happy. No woman is happy about being pumped and dumped and having nothing to show for it but a nasty rash/bump that keeps showing up every few months. Marriage and children bring status and stability. It’s like asking whether she would be happier having a stable home or a fun cocaine habit, although considering what today’s hookup culture has done to young women that’s probably unfair to cocaine.

  6. Horseman I was thinking similar, even wheat and other staples are short this year. There is a local restraint supply store here where I can get 50 pound or 25 pound bags of flour, beans, rice, etc. then I break those down into smaller packages with the desiccant packs to obsorb oxygen and moisture. I like the 2 and 5 gallon buckets. For bulk spices and smaller volume dried goods, canning jars again with a desiccant packet work well. They also have bulk volume produce good for canning, and I will can apples, applesauce, pears, and such from my place plus I will buy peaches and other items from a local farm to can as well. I I have been restocking what I have used these past three months. I also signed up for and get a box of fresh goods weekly. Thinking basically like a pioneer these days! I would like to get some small scale off grid power and stuff going, too!

    How many crops a year per season up There?

    Personally don’t much care if I ever eat another vegetable. And worrying about it is for city folks. Beef is grass fed, grain finished. Would habe to cut the herd a good deal to feed them off my 600 acres but that’s ok. We raise our own chickens, son has us covered on rabbits. My daughter grows enough of that vegetable shit to last us. The ocean is still pretty full…. folks are broke so fishing has been pretty damn good. Not like last year but last year was the best I’ve ever seen. Marsh is full of food. I belong to a hunting club, have my own hunting land. My new place is only 59 acres but it has almost 1000 foot of river frontage……still don’t know what to do without. Was goimg to try and run blueberries on it….

    Any rate. Money is the most useful tool in the world and I have spent most of my money securing more money, guns etc and food sources instead of bwm’s, vacations, education and dumb shit like that

    EU confirms that the UK was a sucker for playing to the EU’s rules because others just treated them as a joke. The single market was not a major advantage to the UK. The EU has been desperate lately to get the UK to agree to follow their shit rules after we leave the EU

    Commission’s own 2020 Single Market scoreboard gives out 166 red & yellow cards to its members
    The UK was one of the top performers but benefited the least, says the EU
    Against a background of the EU continuing to demand that the UK obey all manner of ‘Level Playing Field’ restrictions in return for a trade deal, it transpires that the EU’s own playing field is in fact an “uneven landscape”, according to its own admission.

    Not only that, but the UK was the top performing major country in the EU last year, despite getting the least out of Single Market membership.

    For years Brexit Facts4EU.Org has been monitoring the EU’s annual Single Market Scoreboard. For all those years we have observed the UK performing very well against all the measures, and yet receiving the least benefit from Single Market membership.

    The latter point is not just our opinion. It is what the EU Commission itself says, and it is based on the EU’s own trade integration figures.

    So, the United Kingdom has stuck to the rules more than any other major EU country, and yet has gained the least.

    Is it not extraordinary that Michel Barnier and his EU colleagues have whined on incessantly about the need for the UK to obey its “Level Playing Field” provisions, when that is exactly what the UK has been doing, compared to the other major member states?

    And is it not even more extraordinary that the United Kingdom is the country which has benefited the least from Single Market membership?

  40. My brother graduated college in the early 90’s into one of the shittiest job markets in recent history. Remember “Its the economy, stupid.”? Early in their senior year his girlfriend made it plain that she expected a ring before Christmas. He was given final warning when he got back from Thanksgiving break. Now, my brother was crazy about his girlfriend, but he wasn’t crazy about her post grad plans, which were to buy a house across the street from her mom and start popping out babies full-time. How her $40k college debt (over $75k in 2020 money, my brother was graduating debt-free) was factored in, never was explained. So come January she breaks up with my brother, and inside of two years she had the house and the first baby just as she’d planned, but with another guy.

    My brother was crushed by this for a long time, and I think it played a BIG part in how his relationships with women have gone since.

    So yeah, some women know exactly what they want, and sometimes it is marriage and babies right away, but really the guy is just a cog, and any cog that fits will do.

    whoa – this is scary … so it’s not just that the crazy liberal ed system is sucking in the girls and rearranging their minds … it’s that their fathers are supporting that, apparently …

    the fact that we lost the education system is why we are where we are. If you want to try to find one thing — and there’s more than one thing, obviously. But if you wanted to find, say, the central point from which everything else explodes, it is the fact that we lost public education to the left, to leftist activities disguised as teachers.

    I have no doubt about this, and it’s two generations worth now. One of the things that’s different, as I say, is that when my brother went away to school, there was no way… Even if he’d been indoctrinated as a liberal, there was no way he was gonna convince my dad of it when he came home from school to talk, but that’s happening, and particularly where the students are daughters.

    he goes on to share a story about a man who sent his daughter to college, and she came back all changed, and he supports her being against him.

    RUSH: Lest anybody think that I don’t know what’s going on here, I’m gonna explain fully that I do know exactly what’s going on here. And even though I know exactly what’s going on, and even though I understand it, there’s a part of it that worries me because it’s… We’ve lost our country to multiculturalism, and that has happened in the schools. And we’ve lost our country to multiculturalism in the process…

    [ ]

    I don’t think this is happening too much with sons, but with daughters I think this is going to town. The daughters go away to school, they come home to conservative families, and they’ve been radicalized. And it’s usually around the issue of race. The multicultural curricula has done its job of enforcing guilt on particularly affluent, white, female college students.

    [ ]

    So their daughters come home and tell ’em, “Dad, you and Mom screwed up the planet. You screwed up the country. You’re racists, systemic racists. You don’t even understand it, but I’m gonna tell you how — and you are ruining America. You’ve….” Dad says (sputtering), “I just tried to give you the best life I could. I — I — I — What are you talking about?”

    At the end of it, he doesn’t want to lose his daughter. He said, “Okay. Maybe you got a point.”

    [ ]

    I know it’s not unique, and I know that kids have been turned against their parents since time immemorial. But for a bunch of left-wing jerk multiculturalist college professors to do this — and they don’t just turn these kids against their parents. They do it with hatred. They get these kids, these young women hating either their parents or other aspects of American culture. But he says he’s proud of his daughter.

    anyway … this is a scary piece.

    I don’t think the close vantage point in that photo of Multnomah Falls still exists. Our scenic sites have changed for the worse. They are closing old roads trying to keep people from driving right to the scenic stuff. When I took my kids to Yosemite we had to hike from a parking area over a mile to the visitor’s center, or we could have waited for a shuttle bus, and then we had to squeeze through crowds inside. I told them when I was their age we parked directly in front of the visitor’s center and were the only people there and got to talk to a real forest ranger.(not just some fat environmentalist giftshop chick in brown shorts) They now make people hike miles down many of the roads we once drove on to get right to the sights. It isn’t as family friendly for little ones to have to hike so far, just to see big trees or a waterfall. It seems like not that many of the tourists now speak much English either. Maybe now, due to the Kung-Flu, the foreign invasion of our national parks will be temporarily reduced. Too bad I can’t now take my own son’s on vacation, like how I was able to go as part of a family. Crazy liberals are destroying everything!(and have been for decades) Argghhhh!

    In 4 months, the U.S. transformed into an obedient socialist country. Government dictated what events are acceptable to attend. Violent protests that instill fear are OK but church services, family funerals and patriotic celebrations are dangerous. And you bought it without a fight.
    Standing in a graduation line is a “safety hazard”. Small businesses were forced to close but crowds to support the corporate money machine at WalMart, Lowes and Home Depot are OK.
    Come on. It’s “just a mask” & “safety precautions”.
    How about a little hush money. Here’s $2,400 that we stole out of your pay check in the first place. Enjoy. Buy something with it. From a big corporation.
    Cash is dirty. We can’t give change. There’s a coin shortage. Use your card. In 4 months, they convinced you to use a traceable card for everything.
    In less than 4 months, government closed public schools then “restructured” education under the guise of “public safety”. In less than 4 months, our government demonstrated how easily people assimilate to “guidelines” that have NO scientific premise whatsoever when you are fearful.
    In less than 4 months, our government successfully instilled fear in a majority of the population in America that allows them to control every aspect of your life. Including what you eat, where you go, who you see and your toilet paper.
    And the most dangerous and terrifying part? People are not afraid of the government who removed their freedom. They’re afraid of their neighbors, family and friends.
    And they hate those who won’t comply.
    It’s absolutely terrifying to me that so many people don’t question “authority”. They are willing to surrender their critical thinking skills and independence. They just… gave up without thinking. Without a fight.
    Do you know what’s coming next?
    “It’s just a vaccine. Come on. It’s for the greater good”.
    Wait until you’re told that you can’t enter any store or business without proof of the Covid-19 vaccine. Wait until you can’t go to public events or get on a plane without proof of receiving the vaccine.
    Don’t think it’s possible?
    Hell, you already allowed the government to say when you can go outside, where you’re allowed to go and accepted a new unproven, digital education system for your kids in the last 100 days. You followed blindly because you were told to do so.
    You’re kidding yourself if you think this mass behavior won’t be repeated with a vaccine. Or whatever the next step is.

    Today Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) issued yet another executive order on the coronavirus outbreak – while the Texas state legislature continues slumbering while collecting paychecks for no work.

    The mainstream media, predictably, is mis-reporting the executive order as a “statewide face covering requirement for Texans.”

    It is no such thing. However, it is worded in such an obtuse manner that this misinterpretation of the executive order will likely be universal in Texas.

    Here is the important part of the order:
    Every person in Texas shall wear a face covering over the nose and mouth when inside a commercial entity or other building or space open to the public, or when in an outdoor public space, wherever it is not feasible to maintain six feet of social distancing from another person not in the same household; provided, however, that this face-covering requirement does not apply to the following…
    That comma after the word “space” is essential. It establishes “outdoor public space” as a clause within the sentence, meaning both indoor AND outdoor are covered by the exception “wherever it is not feasible to maintain six feet of social distancing.” This is critically important, as it means even in stores or other indoor spaces masks are not required as long as it is possible to “social distance.” That would include every grocery store and reasonably-sized commercial establishment.

    In other words, this order was purposely written to be misinterpreted! Perception is 99 percent of reality,

    Here is a longer version similar to what Bloom posted. All over the San Fernando Valley, fIreworks started up when it started to get dark (about 8:40 p.m.). The main noise lasted for about an hour or so. But sporadic booms continued well past 2:00 a.m.

    The fireworks are not mainly the problem. The main problem is the palm trees. Idiots can and do fire bottle-rockets that hit the tops of palm trees high in the sky. The dead and dry palm fronds easily catch fire. It is the flaming debris from the top of the palm trees that floats over neighborhoods and sets things on fire. I know, because that happened to my house from a palm tree a block away (15 yearsor so ago). Fortunately, the fire trucks were already in my neighborhood by the time my house caught fire. They were able to put it out before it took hold in the attic (Cape Code style house), but we still had some significant repairs to do.

    I’ve spent the last week or so getting all the leaves off of my roof and everything burnable outside pulled away from the house. Watered everything around the house really well just before dusk. Had garden hoses at the ready in the front and back yards.

    Alternated between watching “Hamilton” with wife and daughter and going outside to make certain that things were OK. Fortunately, no local palm trees caught on fire. But that was not for lack of trying on the part of the folks shooting off fireworks.

    Bloom – i have no doubt there are reasons he is the way he is, but there are some hard truths in here:
    ~ everyone who’s been here long enough has gone out of their way to help him, and he has rejected every bit of that help.
    ~ we cannot change who he is or what made him that way.
    ~ allowing him to continue on your blog, the way he is, is enabling him.
    ~ it is not compassionate to give anyone the freedom to do what he’s doing.
    ~ boundaries created and enforced are loving.
    ~ sometimes we have to walk away from people; sometimes that means enforcing some hard lines that they cannot cross so they don’t follow us.

    Bloom, how about establishing one ‘open thread’ post per week where he (or anyone) can post to their heart’s content, but make it clear that all other posts will have comments strictly limited to on-topic?

    Bloom, man is not meant to be alone. I have noticed that it is causing me problems. He has been alone decades longer than I have, and so he is twisted by it. I think part of his frustration is knowing that the police are the ones that would come and destroy him if he managed to create a family and had it fall apart. Its a normal male reaction to an enemy coming to take what is yours, compounded by years of desperation.

    I have a pretty low opinion of policemen, myself. He isn’t really saying anything about them that I disagree with. They are corrupt, subservient, pathetic, and ineffective at their nominal job. However, I am in the top 1 percent of men. My experience and attitude cannot be applicable to the rest of society. I dont need cops, but plenty of others do.

    Its his relentless pursuit, and deliberate ignorance of social convention. You can’t have a chat like this at your place without him bringing up the cops. Every conversation has to be about his bugaboo, or be changed to be about it. I’m bad about taking over a conversation and talking about what I want, but he is on a different level.

    Also, the fact that he gets into fights with other men in this space make me suspicious. Men fight, but then they sack up and get over it. If he is holding a grudge that long, that means he has a problem. There is something wrong there, and coddling him will only make the eventual break worse.

    one of the main reasons we’re so protective of Aspie-Girl … is also one of the cutest when in a controlled environment.

    she is very easily swayed on anything she is not absolutely convicted about … or with a person who has authority over her and whom she respects.

    for example … she’ll start in on a topic, claiming xyz … if she’s wrong, i’ll simply state that’s wrong, but abc is correct. and without missing a beat or taking a breath, she’ll switch sides and defend abc. it’s quite amusing and sweet – in a controlled environment.

    obviously, i’m continuously working on this. however, in the meantime, i’m extremely protective of her and the people she spends time with.

    i understand that she can switch sides with her sister and me so quickly because she trusts us and knows we would never intentionally lead her astray. we are and have always been very safe people for her.

    i want her to be able to think objectively and to be confident in her convictions. i want her to be able to receive information, evaluate it, and make appropriate changes, if necessary. i believe she’ll get better at this with time as i’ve already seen improvement. until then, i’ll keep her protected 🙂

    I went to Gilroy because they publicly announced they were doing fireworks at their high school. Parked on a back road where I could see the entire town.

    To my surprise, there were four or five fireworks celebrations going on, to the point that I only knew which was the official one because of direction. Enjoyed a nearly 180-degree fireworks show! And this was just a large town, not wealthy.

    Maybe there’s hope for America after all. Those aren’t the only noisemakers we’re packing!

    Women should bend their views to match their husbands’ views. It promotes marital harmony and cooperation. It usually happens more slowly, over weeks and months. A man of sufficient will or a woman without a stable worldview will cause it to happen sooner. I do it to some of my female acquaintances and I’m not even fucking them. Once sex gets involved, so long as you give it to her good and strong, a woman becomes astonishingly pliable.

    Ame, you better be careful about who you choose for her husband. Make sure you vet well, and that he is a good man that will keep her safe. Most men will be, but she will also draw those who prey on weakness.

    Personally, I would advise a little empathy toward Fuzzie , frankly, many here are also walking wounded in the war between the sexes. Fortunately, so far men have largely not joined the battle yet and only the most mindless of women imagine any victory.

    Like myself, Fuzzie was not raised to see that social disaster. Nobody would be so bloody stupid as betray the ancient social agreement that allowed human development, surely nobody is that completely mindless. Wrong, that is the horror of the red pill, and men have yet to address the betrayal. That is unlikely to end well for either sexes.

    Sharkly, she’s wearing heels. Anyone that can’t tell the difference is oblivious. Obviously only men can be rangers. Some jobs, no matter if there are women “doing” those jobs, are men only. For example, there are firemen, and firewatchers; there are no firewomen.

    b g, I know what that is like. I used to be a real nice person. You know how it is: they tell you the deal is that if you treat people well you will do well and be treated well in return. Well, I had to learn better, and that wasn’t a fun process by any means. Fuzzie has to learn that same lesson, and coddling him isn’t going to help him.

    My point exactly. You can dress a woman up as a ranger, but it isn’t nearly as likely that she will clear a storm downed tree from a road on a stormy night before a fleeing camper hits it. When safety is on the line, affirmative-action needs to stand down. For starters…

    it is not kind, loving, or compassionate to allow harmful behavior. if one wants to continue harmful behavior, they can create their own place to do so.

    even my Aspie-Girl knows that there’s a hard line, and if she crosses it, she walks out the door and is not allowed in until she changes her attitude/behavior. and if she chooses to remain in that behavior, she is not allowed back in our house. period. even if she ends up on the streets. there have been times i’ve made her walk out the door, and she hasn’t come back in till she straightened herself out – usually takes less that 10-15 minutes. but she knows it can be permanent based on how she chooses to behave (goes for Oldest, too, but Oldest is a rule-follower 🙂 ).

    And what I meant is what I said in response to the first comment. Bloom / rpg is aiming at a different audience than this blog is. Women, mainly. And that would explain why fuzzie is doing his dirty deeds there, amongst the women. What he is doing there would not be tolerated for a minute here. Because differences between men and women.

    There is a lesson there that translates to all of these blue cities with women mayors pushing their “summer of love” motifs. They are learning the hard way that if they don’t clamp down hard on the violence as soon as it starts, it will only grow larger.
