Encoginator, I don’t personally know this, psychologists and sociologist know this through comprehensive studies. For example when HR specialists are given resumés with non-ethnic sounding gender neutral names, the most qualified person is selected. If it is clearly a woman’s name or an ethnic sounding name, they are less likely to b…
re..The Cuddly One gives women something to keep them occupied..
Yeah, there is a very specific biblical blurb on women lecturing men..1 Timothy 2:12
“I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she must be silent.”
But that doesn’t resonate with Joyce Meyer or Trump’s nut, Paula White for some…[Read more]
_Robert_ So long as you know I wasn’t siding with the Bunker types, I was saying we tend to go right to racism, which is a gross oversimplification. And when I say “we,” I mean the “we we, which often includes me” not the “we means you we” which is more often what is used.
I was referring to the nostalgia post….I agree that is…[Read more]
Unseen, when I read your post the old Archie Bunker tune came to mind..
Those were the Days
Boy, the way Glenn Miller played
songs that made the hit parade
Guys like me we had it made
Those were the days
Didn’t need no welfare state
ev’rybody pulled his weight
gee our old LaSalle ran great
Those were the days
And you knew who you were then
Here are a couple, particularly relevant audio segments on today’s NPR’s Morning Edition show:
- Parler Insists It Would Not Knowingly Tolerate Criminal Activity On Its Site (6:32 long)
- Can The Forces Unleashed By Trump’s Big Election Lie Be Undone? (5:08 long)
The second one analogizes Trump’s lies to fascist lies in worl…

The efficiency of the free market? It went well for the masses before labor unions. It gave Dickens some nice material. Free markets are decidedly superior to any alternative in concentrating wealth in the hands of the few. Suffering bastards become less affordable to many but a namesake of too many. If one is lacking health…
If you prefer being a cruel sociopathic society leaving people to die from simple health issues or the homeless to rot in the gutter and marginalised people living in abject poverty (people to fend for themselves)…then you will pay a very high social cost, higher levels of crime and disfunction and most of your g…
That’s just one example of a boatload of unhinged assumptions. The post, overall, emotionally, it sounds like you’re channeling Trump! Are you ok?
I’m not sure where you get that. Neither Donald Trump nor anyone in polotics today supports applying free market principles to medicine. There are far better ways…

That is amazing how birds navigate. I swear we get the same painted buntings to our feeder every year…
Sunfish (Mola Mola) dive to depths of up to 650 feet to snack on jellyfish and are the largest bony fish (5,000 lbs). I have seen them floating at the surface, but never had I imagined they could go that…[Read more]
I think that “Retweets” and “Reposts” combined with AI-generated “feeds” are a game changer. You take one quick look at some bullshit to see how crazy it has gotten and then you get inundated.
Even so, the older forms of brainwashing were effective. Back in the 80’s I used to go offshore fishing with a caring, nice guy; a coworker. The only radio…[Read more]
Your distrust of government should be as equally tempered by serious distrust of profit making corporations who will stoop to any level no matter the human cost to make a little more money.
There is the huge problem for the “hands off” crowd. IMHO. I will never forget the day my employer was shut down…for dumping deadly toxins in a waterway…[Read more]
The real tragedy is that over 100 elected federal lawmakers were still determined to toss out the court vindicated, locally certified results of the election. Protesters may have illegally looted a Banana Republic for some pants, however these “leaders” want to turn the nation into one.
China and Russia lovin’ every minute. Wait till the next time US tries to export it’s “democracy” as an example to other nations. What a joke. So many magical thinkers going down the a road paved by religion. Election fraud, vaccine conspiracy, Muslim Obama, on and on. What a bunch of fucking assholes.
Unseen, I think it is a contingency tool in the back of their minds in case there is an impulse. Do you think a suicidal person should have access to a gun? This is why there will be no evidence of my “thesis”( LOL) from gun people.
But you possess a trump card. There is always one thing you can do to exercise ultimate freedom: You can kill yourself.
I do think this is a factor in the anti gun-control fight for many Americans…
