"Cut your losses"?

Here's another article about how if your man doesn't give you what you want, just up and leave him.

Tomorrow night, at restaurants across the land, men will whip rings out of their pockets and try to find some vaguely original way of asking the woman across the table if she would like to spend the rest of their lives together raising children, choosing furniture and arguing about just how clean the bathroom vanity needs to be kept. At many other tables, women will be hoping for a proposal that doesn't come. If you are in that second group, I have some hard news for you: It's probably time to leave.

If there are any unmarried women who actually read this blog (and I don't know if there are, and I kind of doubt that there are, but just in case) let me lay out a bit of free advice:  Men need a damn good reason to pop the question.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again:  Modern life, modern feminism, has changed women from something special, someONE special, into just another room-mate that you have sex with.  A friend with extended benefits.  Men take on almost all the risk in a marriage today.  If a divorce happens, women get the children over 90% of the time, even if the father is a more capable parent.  Wife cheats on husband and files for divorce?  Husband still has to pay alimony and child support, even if he was the wronged party.

Granted, that doesn't happen all the time.  But it happens enough.  And it's happened enough to all of us men or our friends, to the point where no, we're not going to just get married because getting married is the perfect way of getting screwed over for two decades or more even after the marriage is over.

So ladies, exactly what do YOU do that's so special that your man should marry you?  What do YOU do that sets you apart from every other woman out there?  If your answer is "Well, I have sex with him!" congratulations, you have the same qualifications as every other woman walking around that he could have sex with.  Your vagina doesn't make you special, because there's always another vagina.  And as a married man who has rebuked the women who attempted to seduce me despite the massive ring on my left hand, let me assure you that should a modern man want a vagina, there are plenty available at very low rates.

So what do you do to make a man marry you?  Try doing the one thing that modern women and modern feminism cannot and will not do.  Be an old fashioned Lady.  Offer to be the woman who makes his house a home.  Avoid falling into the trap of "oh we need two jobs so we can have the newest cars and the biggest house and the loudest phones and and and..."  See what happens when you turn back the clock, reject modern feminism, and just enjoy being a MAN and a WOMAN together.

I bet you'll be surprised.

Obama's War Request

Runs into people who apparently paid attention to how horribly he's run the war in Afghanistan.

Obama characterized the legislation, known as an authorization for use of military force (AUMF), as the product of “a sincere effort” to consult with both Republicans and Democrats. 
“I’m optimistic that it can win strong bipartisan support and that we can show our troops and the world that Americans are united in this mission,” Obama said. 
Yet that optimism seemed ill-founded given some of the comments about the AUMF from lawmakers. 
Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) said he was concerned the bill did not “give our military commanders the flexibility and authorities they need to succeed and protect our people.” 
Rep. Michael McCaul (R-Texas), the chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, said he would not “give consent to a measure that ties the hands of our military commanders or takes options off the table.”

Bingo.  Look at that last paragraph.  If you send in troops, you give them rules of engagement that let them win.  Obama won't do that.

The only reason Obama wants to send in troops in the first place is to make his surrender in Iraq look a little less worse than it already is.  He doesn't believe in the mission, and he certainly doesn't want our troops to win.  All he would accomplish is getting American troops killed for a mission he doesn't believe in.

That's just not a good enough reason to send in US Forces.

Prepper guide

So, for those who are interested, Patrice Lewis and her husband have set up a little e-book store, where they're selling their guides on simple living one-by-one.

Canning, milking, animal husbandry, etcetera.  If you've ever wanted to learn how to be more self-sufficient, it's a good place to start.

Pass me the smelling salts!

I think I'm going to need them!

San Francisco Archbishop Savatore Cordileone has stunned his archdiocese by revealing he is, in fact, Catholic.

The Archbishop is demanding that teachers in Catholic schools actually adhere to Catholic teachings.

Holy.  Moly.  What's next?  Will Bergolio actually revere the Mass?

Told ya!

Eggs are good for you!

The nation’s top nutrition advisory panel has decided to drop its caution about eating cholesterol-laden food, a move that could undo almost 40 years of government warnings about its consumption. 
The group’s finding that cholesterol in the diet need no longer be considered a “nutrient of concern” stands in contrast to the committee’s findings five years ago, the last time it convened. During those proceedings, as in previous years, the panel deemed the issue of excess cholesterol in the American diet a public health concern.

Did you know your body produces it's own cholesterol?  I have a co-worker who eats just about as clean a diet as you can possibly eat.  We're talking less than 1500 calories a day, most of it in fruits and veggies.  He has high cholesterol because it's just in his genetics.  If he followed government dietary guidelines he'd be in even worse shape, but that's a story for another day.

The whole point is that the people who suddenly told you to change the way you ate (More carbs!  More carbs!  Less protein!) are full of BS.  First of all, everyone needs a different ratio of carbs to protein to veggies.  Second of all, you need some fat in your diet.

I'm waiting for another study to come out showing that red meat is good for you.

Obama and his cronies fuck another Soldier

An Army Officer recently had his Silver Star yanked away by a bunch of cowards and tools.

The investigation, apparently, had nothing to do with the acts of bravery that earned Golsteyn his medal. Instead, according to the Washington Post, which cited officials familiar with the case, it concerned “an undisclosed violation of the military’s rules of engagement in combat for killing a known enemy fighter and bomb maker.” The investigation stretched on for nearly two years, during which time the Army effectively put Golsteyn’s career on ice. In 2014, Golsteyn and his lawyer were informed that the investigation was finally complete. No charges were filed, but Golsteyn still wasn’t released from administrative limbo. 
Alerted about the controversy by another Army officer, Captain Will Swenson, Congressman Duncan Hunter wrote last year to John McHugh, the secretary of the Army, asking about the status of Golsteyn’s seemingly endless career freeze. Apparently the secretary did not take kindly to the inquiry, as he responded in a letter last November that not only would he not be upgrading Golsteyn’s Silver Star to a Distinguished Service Cross, but would be revoking Golsteyn’s Silver Star entirely, a fact that Hunter revealed publicly in an article for the Daily Beast published on Tuesday.

Crap like this just proves yet again that Obama is unfit to hold his office, and the position of Commander in Chief with it.  And crap like this is why I will never forgive the anti-American Left, the Progressive National Socialists, for continuing to support this buffoon, this narcissistic incompetent asshole, this malignant cancer on America.

Such is the quality of American military leadership that generals and political appointees like McHugh will send courageous soldiers like Golsteyn into incredibly difficult (some would suggest impossible) circumstances, then invest years in second-guessing their actions after the fact—and then, finding no evidence of wrongdoing, still publicly dishonor the man without giving him a chance to defend himself. 

Obama and his regime do not deserve the military they were handed.  They don't deserve to brush the dirt off of our boots.  Fuck Obama, fuck John McHugh, and fuck every worthless piece of shit to put them in office.

Screwing with Military pensions

Megan McArdle talks military pensions, and focuses on the Commissioned side of the house.  Which isn't a bad thing, per se.  I agree with what she's saying, but I think she's missing the point.

If you want people to stay in a system where their lives are at risk, where they are governed in what they can or cannot say politically, if they must suffer under leadership both good and bad and deal with both in the same manner, to live a life where most every aspect of their lives is governed by some regulation, you're going to have to provide more than a 401k.

Try to foist off a civilian retirement on me, I'm going to act like a civilian.  Which means that the next time some toxic leader tries to go off on me for cleaning up his screw-up, I'm going to tell him to go fuck himself.  What the hell do I care?  I'm getting my 401k!

"Soldier, take that hill!"

"Fuck you, I'm outta here!  I don't need a 401k!"

Military pensions are different from civilian retirement because the military life is different from civilian life.  The military gives up a hell of a lot, and many of them stay in because of that retirement.  Remove that incentive, and you remove the incentive for good people to stay in the military.

Which, in hind-sight, might be why Obama wants to do this so badly.
