A reader brought this story to my attention: Mr. Bundy is not the only rancher that is getting destroyed by our government. It seems Nevada farmer Wayne Hage has been fighting with the Bureau of Land Management for two decades and it took him that long to win.
What did they do to Mr. Hage? Short of tying him to the railroad rail in front of a steaming locomotive— everything.
From The Foundry:
“The case has long, complicated procedural history, but in essence, the federal government in 1991 refused to renew a grazing permit that the Hage ranch had held on federal lands for a very long time. The government also interfered with the Hage family’s water rights, which pre-dated the implementation of the grazing permit system in 1934, by restricting their access to various streams and wells. The BLM seized the Hages’ cattle and filed a civil trespass action against Hage, at one point even building fences around waterways to keep thirsty cattle from getting water, a scene right out of a 1930s Western movie.”
So, who came to the good rancher’s rescue? Was it the Oklahoma militia? His neighbors?
Nope, it was a wise and decent judge: U.S. District Court Judge Robert C. Jones
“Judge Jones issued an injunction against the federal government interfering with the Hage family’s water rights and ordered it to grant a grazing permit in accordance with the “historical usages and preferences” in that area of Nevada. The judge said he was restricting the government’s “normal discretion” in “this extreme case because of the conspiracy…and the obvious continuing animus against Hage by” government officials. Two government employees were held in contempt by the judge for sending trespass notices to people who leased or sold cattle to the Hages in order to “pressure other parties not to do business with the Hages, and even to discourage or punish testimony in the” case. The judge referred them to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for “potential prosecution for obstruction of justice.” That is quite an indictment of the Interior Department and its employees.”
Sadly, Mr. Hage died before he saw victory. His son won the day.
And this brings me to a point that drives me nuts. If these folks had got a liberal judge, they would have lost everything. I don’t know what it’s like where you live, but here in Missouri, when you go to vote for your judges, you can’t find out a thing about them. You can’t find out if they are democrats or republicans or what their records are.
Everything that is released on them, is very nebulous…like—-
Judge McRoy has been serving the community for 35 years, he is from the Law firm Beck and Beck, and is an upstanding member of the community—yada, yada, yada….
There should be information at every voting place telling you the habits, party affiliations, and records of each and every judge you vote for.
The fact that we can’t find this information, is proof that they want to stack the courts in their favor. The less you know about the judge you are voting for, the better.
As far as I know, I’ve never heard ONE other person besides myself think that this stacks the deck of corruption. It’s how the democrats get their agenda passed. It’s corrupt, and nobody seems to mind.
Okay. I had my say on that.
Still…it was good to read that the Hage family got justice. Hopefully, there is a judge somewhere that will stand up to the BLM whenever it appears. Nobody Thinks, that if we REALLY knew all that the government has done to steal land from the West, we’d be shocked.
Whatever happened to Woodies Guthrie’s “This Land is Your Land, This Land is My Land, From California, to the New York Island. From the Redwood Forest, to the Gulf Stream Waters…THIS LAND WAS MADE FOR YOU AND ME.” ?
Right. That used to be an old ‘hippie’ song. Maybe we should start singing it again.

While we all sit and watch Putin invade the Ukraine, with stated plans to overtake other parts of old Russia, Obama makes fluffy speeches. Obama has made it known, Putin can do just about anything he wants. So can Iran. Obama’s new foreign policy is: America is just going to play golf. You guys go ahead and we’ll stay out of it.
According to Dwight D. Eisenhower, it’s a sure recipe for war.
And so, Nobody Remembers a speech that Dwight D. Eisenhower gave to the American people on March 29th, 1952, when he was running for President.
Eisenhower ran on three issues: Korea, Communism and corruption.
He defeated Democrat Adlai Stevenson in a landslide, with an electoral margin of 442 to 89, marking the first Republican return to the White House in 20 years. In the election he also brought with him a Republican majority in the House (by eight votes) and in the Senate (actually a tie, with Nixon providing the majority vote).
(Proving that real conservatives win elections.)
Below are a few examples from that speech. Eisenhower was one of greatest generals in world history, and reading it will make you wonder..how in the world did America fall so low with Obama? Who, if you listen to Eisenhower, will lead us all into WWIII.
Remember, in 1952, we were at war with North Korea:
“There is a Korean War—and we are fighting it for the simplest of reasons: Because free leadership failed to check and to turn back Communist ambition before it savagely attacked us. The Korean War, more perhaps than any other war in history simply and swiftly followed the collapse of our political defenses. There is no other reason than this. We failed to read and to outwit the totalitarian mind.
World War II should have taught us all one lesson. The lesson is this: To vacillate, to hesitate—to appease even by merely betraying unsteady purpose—is to feed a dictator’s appetite for conquest and to invite war itself. That lesson—which should have firmly guided every great decision of our leadership through these later years…was ignored in the development of the administration’s policies for Asia since the end of World War II. Because it was ignored, the record of these policies is a record of appalling failure.
Already along the 38th Parallel aggression is speaking with the too familiar voices of howitzers and cannons. our position is untenable and indefensible. The House should be aware of this.
These words of eloquent, reasoned warning were spoken about eleven months before the Korean War broke.
What a tragedy that the administration shrugged off that so accurate warning!
The armies of communism thus informed began their big build-up. Six months later they were ready to strike across the 18th Parallel. They struck on June 25, 1950. On that day, the record of political and diplomatic failure of this administration was completed and sealed.
Programs along at least two lines can instantly begin. We can, first, step up the program of training and arming the South Korean forces.
We can secondly shape our psychological warfare program into a weapon capable of cracking the Communist front.
The vital lesson is this: To vacillate, to appease, to placate is only to invite war–vaster war, bloodier war. In the words of the late Senator Vandenberg, appeasement is not the road to peace: it is only surrender on the installment plan.
I will always reject appeasement.
“A nations foreign policy is a much graver matter than rustling papers and bustling conferences. It is much more than diplomatic decisions and trade treaties and military arraignments. A foreign policy is the face and voice of a whole people. It is all that the world sees and hears and understand about a single nation. It expresses the character and the faith and the will of that nation. In this, a nation is like any individual of our personal acquaintance: the simplest gesture can betray hesitation or weakness, the merest inflection of voice can reveal doubt or fear. It is in this deep sense that our foreign policy had faltered and failed. “
I don’t know about you..but that last paragraph is chilling close to the Obama administration.
So, if you go by Eisenhower’s convictions: Obama’s handling of our foreign affairs in the world, will lead us all into the bloodiest war every fought. But…nobody reads history anymore…do they?
I have noticed that the cable news channels, while making this a big headline, REALLY don’t tell you about what really happened out there in Nevada. This man goes into more detail, and how this could have turned to a war.
The government was right to back down. They did have an army out there, and no doubt, more than a few drones. Holder choose to back down on this one, because of elections this year, because of how it would have looked if any of these people were shot.
After all, they had no right to steal those cows.
Notice at the end, how Wal-Mart also played a part.
Something tells me, we have not seen the end of this—
I was thinking today— it’s funny the things you don’t remember, isn’t it? Okay, there was a three-day stretch in my life that I vaguely remember where I was. (Trust me, I was not drugged,)
Agatha Christie had one of those times too…only she forgot about 10 days out of her life. But in the history of everyday lives and news…
Back in 1989, a woman at a Philippine bank notice something didn’t ‘feel’ right about a $100 dollar bill she was counting. Yep. It was fake. It had been printed on the same type of $10 million device used by the U.S. Bureau of Engraving and Printing: It’s paper content was 75 percent cotton and 25 percent linen. It was an exact copy of U.S. Currency. The best counterfeit every made.
It was so perfect, they called it the supernote, and it was showing up all over the world.
The FBI suspected Iran, (which had already purchased two of those presses) Syria, Russia, East Germany, and Lebanon’s Hezbollah. Some even suspected the CIA. (No doubt, Al Sharpton has one in his basement)
And then they figured out it was actually North Korea that was printing them. In fact, Kim Jong-Ils not only was printing money, but he was also dealing in black market cigarettes, pharmaceuticals, drugs and weapons just to keep his Elvis movie collection up-to-date.
Doesn’t that make you wonder how much counterfeit everything we see in this country, that they don’t even bother to report? Is that prescription you are taking actually real?
While over $60 million dollars of fake supernotes were eventually found, it was thought that over $964 billion is still in circulation. In fact, you could have some of it in your wallet.
Sure. We just didn’t hear about it, and you know why?
Daddy Bush Was afraid that North Korea would walk away from nuclear weapons talks if he even complained about it, which in hindsight didn’t matter, because Bill Clinton won the election and gave Kim Jong Ills all the plutonium he needed to make nukes. (And they are STILL best friends!)
And even though THAT wasn’t on the evening news much, it’s true. Kim Jong Il’s promised he would never use it to make nukes. Like a typical politician: He lied. This could be the reason why nobody in the world would even dare to go to visit North Korea but a gay basketball player.
And I don’t remember what Bill Clinton got out of that deal for America…do you?
And every day, I ask myself, what is it that I won’t remember tomorrow besides what I left off my grocery list?
If Snowden had not told us about the NSA spying on us, would we one day be told and then say to ourselves…You know, I really don’t remember that. So from now on, if you don’t remember something, odds are, your government never bothered to tell you.
And by the way, just so you know, I’m pretty sure the Commander-in-Chief…is a fake, a counterfeit, not even as good as a supernote if you wanted to compare him to the real thing…
And you can either forget that…or not.
Lots of people know that Ben Franklin started the first library, but reading about it in his OWN words, is pretty cool. Below I ‘reprint’ Ben’s own explanation about how he thought of the concept of a library…
(Ben was VERY good at promoting all his achievements as John Adams used to so cantankerously observe.)
Actually, I also think Ben started the concept of “branding” because he made sure when he was in Paris, that you could buy his image on cups, fans, coins—-his image was all over Paris.
I love reading the founders own words and have often thought, that if our children in our schools read throughout the grades the founders own words, (instead of the rewritten history by some liberal idiot) the country would be more educated and KNOW just how much our leaders are destroying us all. It’s obvious that one of the reasons we are in such a mess today, is because of our terrible schools, which I am beginning to think is on purpose.
Why do I think it’s on purpose? Ben will tell you.
Pay attention to the last sentence: Ben knew that only an informed and educated public will stand up for its rights.
–ENJOY! And be amazed at the genius (and good common sense) of Ben Franklin.
From Ben’s Biography 1771
He had just moved from Boston—(Library is in Franklin, MA)
“I began now to have some acquaintance among the young people of the town that were lovers of reading, with whom I spent my evenings very pleasantly: and gained money by my industry and frugality. I lived very contended and forgot Boston as much as I could, and did not wish it should be known where I resided, except to my friend Collins, who war in the secret and kept it faithfully.
About this time 1730, our club meeting not at a tavern but in a little room of Mr. Grace’s set apart for that purpose, a proposition was made by me that, since our books were often referred to in our disquisitions upon the queries, it might be convenient to us to have them all together when we met, that upon occasion, they might be consulted. And by thus clubbing our books into a common library, we should, while we liked to keep them together, have each of us the advantage of using the books of all the other members, which would be nearly as beneficial as if each owned the whole. It was liked and agreed to , and we filled on end of the room with such books as we could best spare. The number was not so great as we expected: and, though they had been of great use, yet some inconveniences occurring for want of due care of them, the collection, after about a year, was separated and each took his books home again.
And now I set on foot my first project of a public nature—that for a subscription library. I drew up the proposals, got them put into form by our great scrivener Brockden, and, by the help of my friends in the Junto, procured fifty subscribers of 40s. each to begin with and 10s. a year for fifty years, the term our company was to continue. We afterward obtained a charter, the company being increased to one hundred. This was the mother of all the North American subscription libraries, now so numerous. It is become a great thing itself, and continually goes on increasing. These libraries have improved the general conversation of the Americans, made the common tradesmen and farmers as intelligent as most gentlemen from other countries, and perhaps have contributed in some degree to the stand so generally made throughout the colonies in defense of their privileges. “
Benghazi remains a mystery, and today, Mike Morell, who was responsible for the CIA operations at that time, came before Congress to once again, do what democrats do best:
Lie, obfuscate, and say “I don’t remember.” at least 50 times.
Hillary perfected this line of defense. She has said “I don’t remember, and I don’t recall” more times in her career than the tics on the back of 20 wart hogs.
Mike also showed another one of the democrats favorite defenses: When presented with the facts, they answer in a strong tone, “No HERE are the facts!” THEY attack! With basically nonsense of “Nobody is to blame especially the President.”
Works every time. What was found out, is that Mike doesn’t think the fact that the Obama, Hillary, and Susan Rice were taking the U.N.’s talking points on how it was a video that caused the riot, (The UN wants to make talking against Islam a crime.) and they put a man in jail just to push that point, is important.
Or the problem that the CIA could care less what their people are saying on the ground, they take their information from the people in the Oval office. That’s also very minor to Mike.
Good to know,— all you CIA agents out there. Next time you get attacked, call the President and ask him what is happening. (good luck with that)
Mike has had a lot of time to practice the art of defection…and turning the questions into…none of this matters, and what are we going to do in the future?
Proving that Mike has been coached by Hillary.
I guess she needs SOMETHING to do.
Isn’t it nice to know that this man, is standing up for all of us?
I could watch this every day, in fact, I think I will.
Ted Cruz…makes Mr. New Jersey look like just another crooked politician. I actually heard Chris Christie today, pull out the old, “My child ask me today…’Daddy did you do it?’
As if…voters are suppose to believe that he would never lie to his own son.
The unions just ran a democrat in republican clothing. I’m sorry. Chris Christie looks like some guy from the Sopranos. He TALKS like a guy from the Sopranos.
Ted Cruz, talks like a patriot.
And the way things are going…Ted Cruz might be the next Noah.
When I was about eight, my grandfather bought the entire Britannica Encyclopedia and gave it to our family at Easter. Of course, it was for me, because the whole family knew my brother didn’t pick up anything to read unless it was the latest Superman comic. And tonight, I pulled a volume out of that same set, to see what it had to say about the history of education in America. Just what I always thought. The nation started off with the “Little School house on the Prairie ” and then some time later, they decided every child needed to be educated, so they made everyone pay taxes and we were all pushed into school at five.
BUT…Mental Floss Magazine added some stuff, I had never heard..like…did you know that the Klu Klux Klan was one of the main reasons we got mandatory school?
“Grandpa— that wasn’t in the Encyclopedia.”
According to the mental at Mental Floss, before the 1820s, HALF the laborers in American cotton mills were children under the age of 15. And the real reason adults wanted the kids out of the labor force was because of the competition. Children were cheaper, and had more energy. Mary Kenny O’Sullivan, vice president of the National Women’s Trade Union League, said,
“Whenever child labor prevails there is a corresponding decrease in employment for adults.”
Right you are, Mary.
Yes, those dirty rotten kids were taking jobs away from women. Can you imagine? In fact, getting rid of the kids was one of the big factors in uniting the American labor movements.
So— because they didn’t want to throw the little burgers out in the street, the labor leaders thought up a whole new industry: mandatory school, lead by unionized teachers, where they could also get those pesky women out of the factories too! It was a perfect plan.
Massachusetts was the first state to pass a compulsory education law. By 1886, 16 states followed.
Business owners enamored with their short low-cost labor poll, denounced the statues as “communist” and “un-American.”
This was such a great idea that the labor leaders called for compulsory education everywhere, and that’s when the Klu Klux Kan decided it was a good way to FORCE immigrants to conform to white Protestant culture.
(A horrible culture that included math, science, reading, writing…all those terrible things.)
But…kids could still work on weekends and after hours, and so the Klan decided to stop it, and they rallied for a national ban on child labor. It was the Northern Klansmen against the Southern industrialist.
(So…..when blacks couldn’t pick cotton anymore, they got kids. Is that what you get out of this?)
The Klan won the constant lobbying. In 1938 the Fair Labor Standard Act officially ended child labor, but the black kids could STILL work. White children across the south were guaranteed an education, the black kids, well…they could still pick cotton, but this time, they got paid. They didn’t have to go to school.
It was still the racist Klan. But hey, Robert Byrd used to be a member, proving that what? Did the Northern Klansmen move to the South? Did they leave the North?
Mental Floss didn’t say.
So what do we learn from this mental floss history lesson?
According to history, everybody’s wages would go up by 150 percent.
And young black men, who simply cannot get a decent education out of the American mandatory public school system, could finally make a decent wage.
Thanks to Mental Floss, it’s all very clear. We should all call our Congressmen and remind them that we got rid of the kids in our factories, let’s get rid of the illegals.
What built this country, was innovation. Electricity, cars, railroads, steel, and Doug Coulter thinks he will be able to build the next new energy source:
Of course, he might have to take a bath at some point.

“I hope there is not another Cold War,” Clinton said during the question and answer portion of an appearance in Montreal. “Obviously, nobody wants to see that. I think that is primarily up to Putin.” —-Hillary Clinton, 2014.
“We’re hoping that Russia will not see this as sort of a continuation of the Cold War. We don’t see it that way. We do not believe this should be an East-West, Russia-United States – this is not Rocky IV, believe me,” Kerry said, referencing the 1985 movie.—John Kerry, 2014
Our approach as the United States is not to see these as some Cold War chessboard in which we’re in competition with Russia,” Obama said. “Our goal is to make sure that the people of Ukraine are able to make decisions for themselves about their future, that the people of Syria are able to make decisions without having bombs going off and killing women and children … because a despot wants to cling to power.” Barack Obama
Funny isn’t it? Here we have three top democrats who think that just by saying: “Hey, we can’t go back into the cold war Putin…we already did that!” That Putin will just say, “You’re right. “
That’s what you get when you put people in power whose total foreign policy achievements between the three of them amount to just how many secret service people they could find a hotel for when they vacationed on Martha’s Vineyard.
But.—-the cold war is back, and Nobody Remembers this speech that Barry Goldwater gave on the Senate floor, July 14, 1961, when JFK was President.
Here’s a few excerpts about the last “cold war” with Russia, and a few nobody comments.
“As I study the address delivered by the distinguished chairman of the Committee on Foreign Relations, I find myself becoming first surprised, then amazed, and finally, alarmed. In essence it strikes me as an argument of continued drifting in the wrong direction: for inaction on all major cold war fronts: For future costly implementations of an outmoded, weak- kneed foreign policy which accomplishes nothing but more and greater losses of freedoms’ territory to the forces of international communism. It is a plea for more useless expenditures in the name of more hopeless objectives. It is part and parcel with the prevalent belief in administration circles that all we have to do is increase the foreign aid budget and Khrushchev will back off. Castro will be rendered ineffective, and a tremendous host of nations will quickly effect social and economic reforms and clasp the United State to their bosom as the savior of underdeveloped areas.”
Nobody Notes: Isn’t this Obama’s whole foreign policy? Give everybody money? Be “nice”?
How many billions has he sent to the Middle East? And now he wants Congress to send billons to the Ukraine, which will end up in Russia, because the Ukraine owes Russia billions, and either way you look at it, that money ends up in Russia. How smart is that? It’s the same game plan that the democrats had back in 1961. He goes on:
“And the way things are going I am beginning to wonder whether it will ever come—those in official capacity in this country will have to stand up and tell the American people why it is that this approach to the realities of the cold war has cost us billions and billions of dollars while communism continues to gain, both in prestige and territory. The plan fact is that this is not a way to meet effectively the challenge of the cold war. It is the way to weaken freedom by draining our strength and undermines our economy…
“What pleases them (Russia) is our present policy of making costly commitments throughout the world, commitments which carry with them no element of real strength, but which rest on theoretical dreaming that the way to fight Communist bullets is with relief packages, Communist tanks with plows, Communist bombs with elaborate charts for monetary reform.”
Obama is a true liberal, and the way of the progressives. He thinks just because he himself believe the world should now be over guns, and wars, it will be. And if we just send rebels weapons to fight with, food to nourish them, and money for their leaders, everything will work out okay.
Evidently he was playing golf on 9/ll.
Barry’s Goldwater’s speech was about how even in a cold war, you should insist, and fight, for victory, and he cites a quote from General MacArthur who insists we have the RIGHT to prosecute war for the purpose of winning.
The best that might be said for the policy makes responsible for these monumental blunders is that they did not comprehend the truism, as old as history itself, that a great nation which voluntary enters upon war and does not fight it through to victory must ultimately accept all of the consequences of defeat, that in war…there is no substitute for victory…..
Putin is playing to win….and Obama..
Is concentrating on March Madness.
How can we not lose?
Nobody Knows: It’s been almost two weeks, and nobody knows where the Boeing 777 went, but what we DO know, is that the cable stations have MILKED this story for all it’s worth. Did the pilot kill the passengers by going up to 45,000 feet? (And do oxygen masks stop working at that altitude?) Did he just kill the oxygen? Did he program the plane to turn left? Was it an electrical short? Was there another person on that plane that helped hide Obama’s birth certificate in Hawaii? Was this a radical Muslim working with Obama on a secret mission to hide out in an undisclosed bunker, until the day it would be released only to drop a nuke on Washington D.C. while Obama (and his buddies) were out-of-town? Hey…that’s at least as feasible as the Indian Triangle supernatural theory. Or aliens stealing it to study. And since two Iranians got on board illegally, will Israel be the target? Nobody Knows. Nobody knows what happened to Jimmy Hoffa, but then again, Nobody Cares.
Nobody Knows just when they are going to stop talking about it, but if you want to read ALL the theories, it’s all here.
Nobody Knows: Gee. When did GM get a woman CEO? (just a few months ago) Was this done in order to ‘soften’ the blow that for 11 years GM knew about a hazard that killed people in their cars, but it was all about keeping your eye on that bailout money? You had more important things to do GM? Was that part made in China? Anyway, the woman is now being hailed as great, (just watch this fantastic propaganda video below) because she came out and admitted it. Mary looks like everybody’s sister…you wouldn’t want to hurt dear Mary by suing GM now would you? Evidently Mary just found out about this..so I suggest Obama make her his new Auto Czar. Being good at denying knowledge of ANYTHING, is the progressive metal of honor. And speaking of Metals of honor–
Nobody Knows why Obama gave veterans Metals at the White House today. Everybody knows he hates the military. I think I would have suggested they send it to me in the mail. I don’t care how much I deserved that metal, to receive it from Obama would have been…more than a letdown. I would have HAD to say something like “I don’t LIKE what you are doing to our veterans Obama, and …just hand it to me. I want my fellow soldier to do the honors.” And then, I would have been escorted out of the room, and you would have never seen me again.
I don’t think I could have done it. But that’s me.
Nobody Knows—that I watched the movie, THE AMERICAN staring George Clooney last night, and unless you like an hour of sex scenes, with what is SURE to be a photoshoped Clooney, skip this one. On a scale of one to ten, I’d give it a .0005. There was only one scene that was worth watching, the evil sinister woman assassin gets a bullet to the head,–very rewarding, looked real. She deserved it. George had ONE expression throughout the whole movie, no doubt, from eating too many goats in Somalia.
Nobody Knows if Russia is going to invade all its old territories, since it has announced that it could make nuclear toast out of America. And Nobody Knows, if those elite rich snobs in the European Union still think the United States is going to come to their rescue. Would they give up their countries for Putin’s assurances that they would be allowed to keep their own fortunes?
EVERYBODY knows that answer.
Nobody Knows–It’s now being revealed that the NSA has recorded every single phone conversation ever held in probably every country. So, Nobody Knows why they haven’t used that to find out where that plane went….probably because they were listening to Mitt Romney’s phone conversations.
He has a really big family. So does Sarah Palin. I, on the other hand, am VERY boring. Absolutely. I swear on Justin Bieber’s left foot.
Nobody Knows—how hard it was to date Mick Jagger. (His girlfriend committed suicide) and Nobody Knows how Justin Beiber really hurt his foot. And Nobody Knows how many girls are going to complain to their boyfriends that they want to make love in the back of a limo because Beyoncé does it. And Nobody Knows if those girls will have to PAY for that limo. (See Beyoncé’s last video because Bill O’Reilly can’t stop talking about it.)
Nobody wonders if this is going to boost limousine company profits? Anyone with a limo service out there?
Nobody Knows what we found out that Obama did this week:
“In a move that went little noticed in 2009, the White House quietly amended portions of the Freedom of Information Act, making it more difficult for Americans to request public documents for review.”
Yes…the powerful don’t want you to know.
So, you won’t. Hey, we STILL don’t know who killed JFK, so we might as well get used to being ignorant.
And finally, Nobody Knows, I have no idea how to fly a plane, and Nobody Knows, that I thought this video was cute.
Next week, I’ll be sure to tell you more stuff…I don’t know.
Not too long ago, I use to post on a men’s site, called MensNewsDaily. It was a place where divorced men could rant about their divorces. I have to admit— the anger, the frustration, the hatred that some of these men had for their ex-wives were confusing to me, mainly because, most of these men had not gotten over the betrayals or the pain. And some of them had been divorced over five years.
That fact amazed me. They told me stories about women that I just couldn’t understand. These women took all their money, and left town. My problem was—(stupid me) I was comparing these women to myself. I thought, since I had gone through a painful divorced, and moved on, why couldn’t they? I did not get anything out of my first husband. Not a thing. He had a better lawyer, who delayed the whole thing for years, and even though my first husband was ordered to pay child support, and health insurance, he did neither. I didn’t have the money to take him back to court, and he knew it.
The way I looked at it, I had the biggest treasure of all: my son.
So, I bucked up, supported us the best I could (with the help of my parents, bless their souls) and went on with my life. The logical thing to do was to forget the past, put the pain behind me, and move on with life because…life is short.
So, why couldn’t these guys? ARE the women of today really that bad?
Sadly, I’m finding out….yes. “Feminism” has turned too many women into a new set of idiotic sharks.
Just last night, I put some comments on a feminist blog. It was by a young woman who went on and on about all the ‘sexism’ in life and patriarchy, and unfairness, and according to her, that was life’s worst problem.
So, innocently enough, I wrote a few lines and said: Gee, my mother ran her own company, I worked for years in bands with all men, I never saw this “sexism” –give me some examples.
Of course she didn’t…she lashed into me, accusing me of not liking sex, or gays, or didn’t I know there is a war on women?
No…sorry. What war? I don’t like sex? I didn’t even TALK about gays…where the heck did she get all this from? Like the Fed’s money, it came out of thin air.
The last few years, it has started to dawn on me that YES…the young girls of today are simply not thinking. (I’m talking many, not all understand) They have bought into the feminist BS philosophy hook, line and sinker. The teachers union have raised, not only a generation of uneducated kids, but generations of women with no common sense whatsoever.
God, did Gloria Steinem mess up a good thing. Both my mother and I had never even given what we wanted to do a second thought.
As I read on, this girl claimed she really liked men. Well, I thought…there’s hope there I guess., so I kept writing…
I tried to tell her that like her, I didn’t realize that feminism was a well thought- out political propaganda agenda, until later. That feminism is being used to get all women in the workforce, their kids in state schools, where they can introduce socialism, then soft communism, and it’s not a pretty end.
But she was going to a university, where being a ‘feminist’ is a must and all the rage.
The angriest she got in her rant, was when she talked about her mother. No doubt, her mother was a feminist, because her mother left dad with the child to raise. Why…it was just sex. Her mother was a feminist. I don’t think she even realizes she is being like her mother.
Do you see the dichotomy here?
This woman ranted about her life as being wonderful because she could have FREE sex, just like a guy,(unlike her mother, she would probably just abort) but she wasn’t getting the ‘respect’ that a man gets, and that’s ‘sexist.’
It’s the same argument I heard back in the sixties, and it makes me laugh. You can’t be Miley Cyrus and expect ‘respect’ from men. Even a man doing that would get no respect. She said Miley Cyrus was art.
Okay, now we are getting into the absurd. You can call Miley Cyrus a lot of things, but not art.
And what was Obama’s big beef to women? Why, they shouldn’t have to pay for contraceptives…and so he made the rest of us pay for their pills AND their abortions. All these strong women…gee. They need to be taken care of.
Hell, I would have been insulted as a person if somebody insinuated that I couldn’t pay for my own contraceptives, but not today’s feminist…oh no. What wimps. They want to be equal? Well then, pay for your own pills, girls. What don’t you get about equality? You want to be respected and be equal?
If you can’t pay your own bills, and your own pills, you are …well, what are you?
What did all that free sex get women? A lower paycheck for one thing. (and millions of abortions) The very things that the women’s movement was supposed to fix, have been multiplied ten-fold. More women are portrayed as sex objects in our movies, the porn industry, the music industry, than ever before. Oh…and no-fault divorce. Great gains gals.
And don’t call them sluts! No! They now have EQUAL sex now! Your body is your own, and therefore, you can raise that child by yourself! You are….liberated! Free at last girls! (Never mind the horrific damage it does to the kids.)
Newsflash: Fathers are a GOOD thing.
I wrote that men ‘built’ the world, and so, she explained how I left out all the women who were scientists….etc, etc….adding onto my plain fact. As IF by saying that men built the world I had muttered some kind of blasphemy. And so I said, I meant every word. Men…built the world. The road, the skyscrapers, roads, cars, my snow blower, the Statue of Liberty……..I’m forever grateful to those guys! I LOVE a good sewer system! God, I just want to kiss them all. (Okay, maybe not all of them.) I’m SO thankful.
Digging holes in the sand, to cook in. (Thank you Thomas Edison. I love you! I love electricity!)
Any woman who has had a baby, can see from the beginning, boys and girls are different. From the time they are born. That doesn’t mean women can’t be as smart as men, it just means we are different.
Good lord, why is everybody making such a big deal out of nothing?
For the same reason they make a big deal about another very historical normal act of nature–climate change: Control.
Our government knows how to keep the nation divided:. Men VS women, black vs. white, America Vs. the world, Atheist vs. religious, gays vs. straights….and they have good reason to. IF we ever united as a people they would be in REAL trouble.
Today I talked to a very smart man, who went on an angry rant about women. It almost brought tears to my eyes: Every woman he dates, expects the WORLD…and he is just not perfect. That utopia the feminists want…does not exist, and none of the women he dates know this. They all take his money, and leave. He wants so much to find a woman to love, but he just can’t.
No man is perfect. But the young girls today demands to be the top dog. That man has to be perfect, or else they are gone. They don’t need men anymore. Sex, is sex. There is no partnership between a man and a woman anymore.
Not a good sign for the species, and it’s one of the reasons Western Civilization is going by the wayside: We did not populate our nations, and feminism had a lot to do with that.
So Europe brings in the Muslims, and the US brings in the Hispanics in order to survive. Yes, this “I can live without a man” stuff has hurt the best of us all.
My mother’s generation, men and woman were so much more mature. Marriage was a team effort. But this new generation of women…they have been completely subdued with BS Feminist 101. The leftist have made children of them all.
Children. Which is exactly the plan. A nation full of emotional retarded, dumb-downed and stupid dependent children.
I told her that if Hillary is voted in to be the next President by the feminists, the men vs. women argument is not going to matter. because we will all become “comrades.”
Women will finally be ‘equal’ to men. In fact, when war comes, (And it always does) you will be slaughtered right along with the men, or haven’t you figured that out yet?
Be careful what you wish for girls, you might just get it.
Obama just gave up our internet control to the world…and here in this video, we witness that according to Obama, he doesn’t need Congress’s permission to send troops anywhere. He believes that if HE, as President thinks we need to go to war, he has a right to send troops.
This is of course a blatant disregard of the Constitution.
It gives any President full power to do whatever he wants. Watch…and be amazed. This video didn’t get much attention, but what would be keeping us from going into WWIII if Obama decides he wants to show the world he’s really as tough as Putin?
He would just do it. Our Congressmen are wimps.
I thought this was one of the most passionate and greatest speeches given at CPAC. Pat Caddell laid out the truth of the times, with great emotion and patriotism. I was cheering in my seat. He captured how most Americans, who are fed up with both parties, really feel, and he did it boldly and without holding back.
Thank goodness some nobody video taped it…
Congratulations Pat Caddell! You win the Nobody’s Fool award for the week!
