My Comments at The Spearhead

Order of my voting preference: Republican/conservative
male, Republican/conservative female, Democrat/liberal male, Democrat/liberal
female. Very likely, if the last two are all there is to choose from, I
Here’s the way I see it. The Republicans are money-grubbers.
They always have been. They’re fat cats. They’ll use the government to
their advantage in their pursuit of money. But in that pursuit, they generally
leave us little folks alone. They don’t bother us, meddle into our lives,
tell us how to live.
Democrats also use political power to enrich themselves
and their buddies, but they also want to tell every last person in the
world AND his brother how to live — what to eat when, when to sleep, when
to work, what job to do, where to live, in what kind of house, how much
water to use when the toilet flushes, who should be your friends, neighbors,
employees, boss, where your kids should go to school, who they should associate
with, etc., etc., etc., …. And if you don’t want to do what they tell you,
they’ll throw you in jail — or fine you. Here’s an example:
Michigan Woman Faces Civil Rights Complaint for Seeking
a Christian Roommate
A civil rights complaint has been filed against a
woman in Grand Rapids, Mich., who posted an advertisement at her church
last July seeking a Christian roommate.
The ad “expresses an illegal preference for a Christian
roommate, thus excluding people of other faiths, according to the
complaint filed by the Fair Housing Center of West Michigan.
The housing bureaucracy is the creation of leftist
If I have a choice, I’ll take Republicans.

I love technology and I know full well it’s man-made
and man-maintained, and I have no problem at all admitting that and saying,
“Thank you, gentlemen.” I don’t understand a lot of it, but I do know my
life is better because of it.
Years ago–I guess I should say decades ago, because
this possibly pre-dates OPEC and certainly pre-dates political correctness–there
was this marvelous cartoon in TV Guide. These two Arab guys in robes and
turbans are sitting on a magic carpet flying over Baghdad. They’re watching
a TV sitting at the other end of the carpet. And one sez to the to the
other, “I have never understood how television works.”
I eventually came to a very rudimentary understanding
of raster-scan technology back in the 1980s when I was learning to do computer
animation — but now it’s growing wonderfully obsolete, thanks to men who
keep inventing and inventing and inventing. (Watching the Saints play football
on hubby’s big, hi-def, flat-screen TV is an awesome thing.)

Gosh, that’s truly awful.
What a difference 21 years and the sex of the band
members make! Men do almost everything better, including rock’n’roll….

I must have grown up in a cultural bubble, and a
pretty big one. There was no admiration for violent men there. As teenagers,
my friends and I were warned about, and steered away from, bad boys by
our parents and other adult authority figures. We developed the understanding
that such boys (and, later, men) were malevolent and potentially posed
a danger to us.
Fortunately, bad boys were a tiny minority in our
culture. Most males were raised to be good boys, and good, productive men.
(I married one and I appreciate him more the longer we’ve been together,
which is about 36 years now.)
In HS and college, we admired boys who could be tough
(football players), leaders (class and club officers), smart (honor rollers)
and who could fight effectively if defense required it. But if it wasn’t
in defense of self or others, it was bullying, which is something we recoiled
I think women who get the tingles from evil have
not been taught properly to distinguish between good and evil. I guess
that would include the majority of people in our culture today.

My subject wasn’t marriage, except incidently. You
are free to advise men whatever you wish.
What you’re characterizing as my “typically female
‘me/my situation is the exception to the norm’” is a mischaracterization.
It wasn’t my situation — that’s why I said the “cultural bubble” was so
big. It encompassed nearly everybody. It was accepted for girls to be taught
to avoid bad boys, and accepted for boys to be taught to be good, productive
men. That there are more bad boys/men now and more girls/women attracted
to them is because people are no longer properly taught right from wrong.
Certainly I’m cognizant of the difference between
marriage today and marriage of the past; I’m cognizant of the difference
between the whole freaking culture today and culture in the past. The things
that used to influence life to the good have disappeared, or are weakened.
For the dwindling numbers who still attend church, it’s more like going
to a social club. There used to be The Code of Practices for Television
Broadcasters — gave that up in the 1970s; ditto the codes for motion pictures,
which is why we have such filth coming out of Hollywood these days. Feminism,
the sexual revolution, the generation gap, all of the cataclysmic social
change of the 60s and 70s combined to weaken or hamstring the forces of
good in society.
Humanity is fallen. That is our natural state. We
are drawn to evil unless there is an influence for good in life to help
us combat the attraction. The influence for good in our culture is considerably
smaller and weaker than in times past. That’s not my situation. That’s
the human condition.

Sorry about the double post. I didn’t see the first
one under Anonymous until I posted the second. Welmer, you can delete one
of them, whichever you wish.

Correct answer: “Sure I can. I’ve been going to the bathroom alone since
I was four years old.”
As I wandered off alone
I was stopped by a couple of the women in our group who told me that I
can t go to the bathroom alone and that I had to be accompanied by two
I see it all the time, and I still have trouble believing the utter
insanity feminism hath wrought.

Stereotyping is a form
of pattern recognition, which is the basis for most thought. Science breaks
all things down into groups and classifications to better understand our
complex reality. Should we account for exceptions to the rule? Absolutely.
Should we ignore the rule because of exceptions? Absolutely not.
Is this original to you, sir? If so, may I use
it? How should it be attributed?

Uncle Elmer and Troll King,
Look at this:
That is a politically correct rewriting of Coca-Cola
history — the kind of PC that led to the company’s feminization (or feminist-ization)
that we see now.
I was born and raised in Georgia. Before PC, it was
common knowledge that John Stith Pemberton was a veteran of the Confederate
Army. Back in the 1990s, when the PC war on Confederate and Southern heritage
began in earnest, Coca-Cola’s history was rewritten to identify him as
a generic “Civil War veteran.” Now, there’s no mention of his veteran status
at all on the company website. He was just a pharmacist who invented this
great-tasting soft drink.
Wikipedia will tell you more. As a Confederate soldier,
Pemberton was wounded in battle and grew addicted to the painkiller, morphine.
The syrup from which Coca-Cola was produced grew out of his search for
a cure for his addiction.
I wish I could join you in giving up drinking Coke,
but I can’t start something that I’ve been doing since the late 1990s.
I boycott not just Coke, but everything the company produces, if I know
it’s a company product. Their product list is so big, you don’t always
Some of them are available only outside the USA.
So I can’t start a personal boycott of Coca-Cola
products, but now I sure have even more reason to continue it.

staring straight into the gaping maw. … It seems that The Spearhead has
provoked the beast ”
Indeed. Raises the hair on your neck.

Old Ma’am, here, just to float an idea I haven’t
seen as I skimmed the discussion.
I believe Europe became the successful culture it
was over the centuries because of the influence of Christianity. No, it
didn’t get Christianity exactly right — misused it for political purposes,
burned witches, made war after war after war, etc. — but even so, the influence
of Christianity was powerful enough to seep through the misuse and cause
Europe to flower, to create democracy and liberty and other positive aspects
of western civilization.
Europeans took their Christianity-influenced culture
to new lands. Those offspring-cultures also flourished as long as Christianity
held enough influence over them.
And so everybody understands, it was European, Christian-influenced
MEN who created so many of the advances the whole world benefits from.
But in the 20th century, Europe tossed Christianity
aside in favor of secularism and socialism, of which feminism is an integral
component. Feminism despises Christianity because it establishes roles
for males and females, particularly within marriage, that feminists see
as oppressive to women.
So… they threw Christianity away. I remember reading
not long ago that Norwegians overwhelmingly identify as Christian (Lutheran)
but over 70% don’t consider it important enough to attend church.
By abandoning the element that made Europe what it
was, Europeans have basically cut their own throats, culturally speaking.
The USA is following in Europe’s footsteps. I think it will be catastrophic
for humanity. So much of mankind’s advances were made by Christian-influenced
Europeans and their posterity in other lands.
Can other cultures take up the slack and continue
advancing mankind? Anything’s possible, I guess, but absent the influence
of Christianity, I’m not hopeful. I think humanity has a dark and bloody
