"A store that sells new husbands has opened in New York City, where a woman may go to choose a husband. Among the instructions at the entrance is a description of how the store operates:
"You may visit this store ONLY ONCE! There are six floors and the value of the products increase as the shopper ascends the flights. The shopper may choose any item from a particular floor, or may choose to go up to the next floor, but you cannot go back down except to exit the building!
So, a woman goes to The Husband Store to find a husband. On the first floor the sign on the door reads:
"Floor 1 – These men have Jobs.
"She is intrigued, but continues to the second floor, where the sign reads:
"Floor 2 – These men Have Jobs and Love Kids.
"‘That’s nice,’ she thinks, ‘but I want more.’
"So she continues upward. The third floor sign reads:
"Floor 3 – These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, and are Extremely Good Looking.
"‘Wow,’ she thinks, but feels compelled to keep going.
"She goes to the fourth floor and the sign reads:
Floor 4 – These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead Good Looking and Help With Housework.
"‘Oh, mercy me!’ she exclaims, ‘I can hardly stand it!’
"Still, she goes to the fifth floor and the sign reads
Floor 5 – These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead Gorgeous, Help with Housework, and Have a Strong Romantic Streak.
"She is so tempted to stay, but she goes to the sixth floor, where the sign reads:
"Floor 6 – You are visitor 81,456,012 to this floor.
"There are no men on this floor. This floor exists solely as proof that women are impossible to please. Thank you for shopping at The Husband Store.
"To avoid gender bias charges, the store’s owner opened The Wife Store just across the street with the same rules as the Hushand store.
"The first floor has wives that love sex.
"The second floor has wives that love sex, have money and can really cook.
"The third floor has wives that love sex, have money, can really cook and are drop dead gorgeous.
"The fourth, fifth and sixth floors have never been visited."
Now, don't be blaming me for posting this, it's already all over the internet.
The dentist who paid over $40,000 to go hunt down a lion has got himself in all manner of hot water, actual legal trouble in Africa, and all manner of social/business trouble back here.
His guides took him to the very edge of a National park where lions - an endangered species - were protected. The lion was lured out of the park by the "guides" and killed less than a half-mile away form the park border.
Lured out of a national park by a trail of raw meat and then
shot with a bow and arrow from cover. He was mortally wounded
but took over a day to die.
Now, big game hunting has been a sport for centuries. Kings, Pharaohs, politicians, from famous people to ordinary dudes... all have partaken in this activity..
Of course, in King Tut's day, a Pharaoh that was killed in a hunting accident, nothing was endangered as it is today. In Teddy Roosevelt's day, nothing was endangered. Roosevelt even had a stuffed animal named after him, the teddy bear.
Today, hunting is a legal and very popular pasttime in America. But it is carefully regulated to insure the continuing survival of our wild game, and the idea of luring an animal with bait and then killing it from the safety of cover with armed "guards" to protect you - just an case - is as repulsive as it is illegal.
That's one point.
My second point is that what this dentist did was not "hunting". What he did was pay some dudes to lure a lion out of its safe zone to an area where this guy was waiting with his bow and arrow, hidden and in absolute safety (his guides were armed with big guns for protection). That's not being the big, manly macho-dude hunter, that's being a cowardly loser and done strictly for ego boosting and a false sense of being a real man. I can see no honor or reward in this kind of conduct.
A bow and arrow.
Instead of a huge rifle like the .416 Rigby, ,404 Jeffery, or the massive .505 Gibbs, weapons that can easily down a charging bull elephant, this mighty hunter used a bow and arrow. Why? Must have enhanced his"feeling" of personal danger..
Turns out this dentist has killed many animals in his quest for self-esteem and manhood. In one instance alone, he paid $35,000 for the chance to gun down a elk.
That brings up my third point.
If I were a patient of this guy, and I found out he has spent tens of thousands of dollars just to kill animals to boost his self image, I would realize I have been getting greatly overcharged for his dental services, screwed in fact.
I would cancel any future appointments I had with this dude and walk away.
And now we are told this dentist has gone into hiding. Can't take the heat for his actions. That pretty much proves his true level of manhood, doesn't it?
An up-scale dentist once charged - once - a family member $800 to pull a tooth. Maybe it's time to take a closer took at what these dentists are charging for their work. I know that dental insurance is almost impossible to get because of the cost. I can only conclude that insurance companies consider dentists as wildly overpriced and have adjusted their fees accordingly.
One look and you just know this is not gong to end well.
Since before Reagan, the federal government has being on a spending binge unequaled in the history of the world, in the history of mankind, in the history of the entire known universe. Only only possible way to pay it off - which is considered impossible - is the tax the living hell out of a nation whose entire industrial and manufacturing base has been intentionally exported - by this very same government - offshore to competing, even unfriendly nations.
Taxing people with no jobs, poor paying jobs, jobs stolen by illegals who send their money out of country, taxing a nation with 49% of its population on some sort of welfare and/or government support to pay off a 18+ TRILLION debt?
The European Union. Even as it disintegrates before our eyes,
it is attempting to reach across to us and direct American lives.
Is Google aiding and abetting this effort?
The following just popped up on my blogger page from Google:
European Union laws require you to give European Union visitors information about cookies used on your blog. In many cases, these laws also require you to obtain consent.
As a courtesy, we have added a notice on your blog to explain Google's use of certain Blogger and Google cookies, including use of Google Analytics and AdSense cookies.

European Union laws? When did I become obligated to obey European Union laws?
Additionally, I have seen nothing on my blog page explaining anything, and...
Just who made me "responsible" to make sure my blog is European Union compliant? Who gave them that authority?
If Google has decided it's going to require American citizens to answer to European Union laws, it may be time to ask:
What European Union law are we being required by Google to observe and obey?
Is there a treaty between the United states and the EU that allows this coercion to occur?
Why should any American Blogger be concerned about the EU and its invasive laws?
Is Blogger just kowtowing to the EU at the expense of its American users?
What justification is being offered for this invasion of our sovereignty?
If European Union "visitors" have a need for me to explain my blog to them, they can just stay away.
I have read many articles by by Camille Paglia who has been writing for Salon Magazine for many years.
I lot of what she says I agree with, a lot I don't. Not that it matters.
That being said, she commented on America's universities in a recent interview, part of which I post here:
* * * * * * * * * *
I prophesied this in a piece I wrote in 1992 for the Times Literary Supplement called “The Nursery-School Campus”. At the time, nobody understood what I was saying. But I was arguing that the obsessive focus by American academe with students’ emotional well-being was not what European universities have ever been concerned with. European universities don’t have this consumer-oriented view that they have to make their students enjoy themselves and feel good about themselves, with everything driven by self-esteem. Now we have people emerging with Ivy League degrees who have no idea how little they know about history or literature. Their minds are shockingly untrained. They’ve been treated as fragile emotional beings throughout their schooling. The situation is worsening year by year, as teachers have to watch what they say and give trigger warnings, because God forbid that American students should have to confront the brutal realities of human life.
Meanwhile, while all of this nursery-school enabling is going on, we have the entire world veering towards ISIS–with barbaric decapitations and gay guys being thrown off roofs and stoned to death. All the harsh realities of human history are erupting, and this young generation is going to be utterly unprepared to deal with it. The nation is eventually going to be endangered by the inability of several generations of young people to make political decisions about a real world that they do not understand. The primitive realities of human life are exploding out there!
* * * * * * * * * * *
Scary stuff, and most probably very true. Particularly the part about how " this young generation is going to be utterly unprepared to deal with it."
The entire article is posted at Salon. In my view, it is worth reading, and should be required reading for those who think everything is just fine. Unfortunately, those "shockingly untrained" minds would most likely laugh it all off as dissonant babble.
Until the bottom falls out.
And even when that happens, they will still have no clue as to what happened, or why.
For those of you who think ignoring the news will keep you safe, or worry free, or whatever, here's a reminder that just running your business based on your Constitutional rights can get you destroyed by the government.

A judge for the Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries (BOLI)recommendeda lesbian couple should receive $135,000 in damages for their emotional suffering after Sweet Cakes by Melissa refused to make them a wedding cake. As a result - Aaron and Melissa Klein could lose everything they own — including their home. * * * * * * * * * Emotional suffering. When was the last time you saw a lesbian who was enduring emotional suffering over a cake? Liberals, progressives, feminists, etc, - that whole batch of freedom haters - will attack and try to destroy anyone who disagrees with their opinions and beliefs. Their vitriol and hatred for anyone who marches to a different drummer is legendary in America. However, people who agree with Sweet Cakes by Melissa have donated $250,000 in support of that action, so Aaron and Melissa get to keep their home, although their business was destroyed by the real haters of this nation. The other side is starting to stand up and tell these people who just can't mind their own business when somebody says or does something they don't like - even if it is Constitutionally protected - to get lost. These aforementioned liberals, progressives, feminists, etc, just can't seem to grasp the reality that the Constitution protects this freedom of choice, for the very reason that there will always be people around who get all insulted over what something somebody else says - or does - and will want the law changed to suit their particular world view. It drives them to distraction that the Constitution is still the law of the land and indeed does protect those who have the gall to disagree with their attitudes and opinions. That's why Obama is their hero and savior, he is utterly destroying the Constitution and the personal protections it provides.. By the time these geniuses realize the error of their ways - that they are also losing those protections - it will be too late to prevent the tyranny of the coming dictatorship, one that will make the world of "1984" childlike by comparison. Stalin called people like them "useful idiots". Of course, the reality that Sweet Cakes by Melissa was hauled into court and fined $135,000 for making a Constitutionally protected choice demonstrates that this new reality is now at hand, The consequence is that all these people who who thrive on getting insulted by the actions of others and then attack them endlessly are going to have to live in the worldthey are creating. And like they have always said, "payback is a bitch".
And the selling of aborted baby parts? I'm not going there but the backlash to that is going to get HUGE
I think women should rule the world. Now, of course, this can only be done through the force of law, since it goes against human nature, but that’s okay. Human nature, if you’re a leftist, doesn’t matter. Because to them it doesn’t exist!Let’s look at what we’d have to do. First, we’d have to keep men out of influential high-paying jobs that require a lot of education and work. That can be done with Affirmative Action, which essentially means “white men need not apply.”
We’d also have to keep men out of college, which is what is happening these days. Right now there are a lot more women in college than men. This is a good thing. No, it’s a great thing!
Men should only be carpenters (I used to be one), taxi drivers (used to be one), coal miners (nope), stuff like that. Stuff that women don’t want to do because it’s too hard, hot, dirty, dangerous, unpleasant, etc.
Women want those nice indoor air-conditioned jobs where they can sit around, drink coffee, hold meetings, and think they’re working. And this is good!
One of my taxi driver friends got murdered. Another got repeatedly stabbed in the face with a steak knife by a crazy woman. Then there was the one had the misfortune of having a pistol pointed at him three times during three different robberies. But all of this is okay! Men are worthless and expendable!
The fact is, men shouldn’t be educated at all. They’re awful!! They should be like those Epsilon-Minus Semi-Morons in Brave New World, the ones that ran the elevators. Serves them right.
The worst -- especially the worst! – are white men, who are drooling troglodyte sexist racist homophobic specieist child-molesting rapist pornographer Ice People brutes who introduced slavery into the world. (Well, actually, that’s not true – white men got rid of slavery, and in record time: about 55 years, after slavery was around at least 7000 years. But facts don’t matter!)
Men should receive no education at all. Not even reading, writing and arithmetic! Revenge is good, and it doesn’t matter if it’s aimed at the wrong people.
One way to prevent this education is by drugging little boys. I think Ritalin would be a good choice. It’ll fix their brains up but good, like that Ritalin child Kurt Cobain, who returned the favor by fixing his own brains permanently!
Yep, make sure men receive no education, dope them up, prevent them by law from getting educated jobs…and women will be able to rule the world!
Now what kind of world would we have if women ruled it completely and men had absolutely no influence at all, had no education, and were completely at the bottom?
I think the humorist P.J. O’Rourke gave us a clue with his comment, “Without men, civilization would last until the next oil change.” Or as Camille Paglia commented, if women had been in charge of civilization, we’d still be living in grass huts. Okay, well, maybe teepees.
Hmmm…let’s see…who invented about 97% of everything in the world? Well, as best as I can remember, it was European men and their descendants in America. Those horrible hideous white men who are responsible for every problem in the world! . . . they invented almost everything? Huh?
But let’s concentrate on the United States and not the entire world. If women ruled completely and men had no influence at all, it’d be a great country. Utopia! Paradise on Earth!
Things would go backward, of course, I suppose to some sort of primitive, barely technological society. Tribal and pastoral. But that would be great!
I think I might be exaggerating a little bit (or maybe a lot) but you can learn a lot from reductio ad absurdum.
Very few women can invent anything – or drive for that matter -- but so what? A primitive, loving, pastoral tribe in which everyone chipped in and helped change the babies…it’d be wonderful! It’d be just like that idyllic tribe in One Million Years B.C., in which Raquel Welch wore a two-piece fur bikini. Woo hoo, what a life! I can’t wait.
Of course, women (and some men) don’t believe this would happen. Somehow – not quite sure how – we’d still have an advanced technological society with big-screen TVs and SUVs and dentistry and surgery and easy high-paying careers, even though men would be so uneducated, stupid, doped up and out of work they couldn’t do anything except drink and smoke dope and lie around jerking off to computer porn and wondering how to use that sex-toy they bought mail-order.
But what the heck. All those women oppressed throughout history, why, once they’re free, think of all the inventions waiting to be invented by them! Forget that Gloria Steinem said that logic didn’t matter. It doesn’t matter! Or that there are certain things that shouldn’t be investigated, like the differences between men and women. She’s right about that, too!
And of course, women would have all the government jobs, so we can be ruled by bureaucrats. Of course, being women, they won’t act like bureaucrats, unless they were mommy-bureaucrats. Thank God for that!
Women being supported by the government is a good thing, since marriage would collapse, what with men not being able to support a family. So women would have babies without being married or the children having a father’s influence. All of us would end up acting lower-class. And this is good!
It’s always a good thing for teenage girls to not get married and have kids to get more welfare. And for teenage boys to form gangs as surrogate families. And the fact these things are caused by not having intact families with fathers? It’s a good thing!
In essence, women would be marrying the government. And this is a good thing. Families and fathers are so primitive!
Well, primitive yes, but not primitive like tribal primitive. That’s good primitive. It’d be some other kind of primitive, like not-needed primitive, like hair in your ears or nostrils.
So what if many women would be unhappy hateful frustrated hysterical shrews, except for all those revenge-minded man-hating lesbians who helped found feminism? And envious ugly leftist feminists like the hideous monster Betty Friedan? And if men are unhappy and drink and do drugs and get violent? Ha! Since when did happiness ever matter? Revenge is what matters! Fairness is what matters…well, yeah, I know, it wouldn’t be fair, but so what?
And if society didn’t advance and instead went backwards, so what about that, too? Primitive tribes without dental care and air-conditioning are the place to be!
Many women are natural socialists, which means they are irrational, ruled by their feelings and think everyone should be forced to share and do favors for others whether they want to or not. This is good. I think that’s the reason they’ve always been denied the vote. That’s not good! It’s certainly why so many of them vote Democrat. And that’s good!
Throughout history women have always been the home and the heart (maybe it should be the Home and the Heart). Men have always been the rational creative inventing part – the fixers, the inventors, the discoverers.
About 40 years ago the brain researcher Paul McLean discovered three structures to the brain: at the bottom, the reptilian complex, on top of that, the limbic system (emotion) and on top of that, the neocortex (reason).
One writer called it the Snake brain, the Eve brain, and the Adam brain. But whatever you call it, the rational brain sits on top of the emotional brain, which means our emotions are supposed to be subject to our reason -- not the other way around.
It’s not as if men are all reason and women are all emotion. Each sex has a bit of the other in it, like Jung postulated with the anima/amimus or that Yin/Yang thingie.
If each gender didn’t have a bit of the other in it, we’d never be able to understand each other. Both sexes have mirror neurons, although women have more. Men have a bigger visual-spatial area in their brain. That’s a bad thing! . . .I think.
But, heck, so what? Facts don’t matter. Only archaic left-wing socialist/tribal fantasies matter. It doesn’t even matter if they don’t work and destroy lives and societies!
I, for one, welcome our new Eve overlords. All our base are belong to them!
