This is a short post in praise of the men of my tribe. The hardworking Caucasian men responsible for the founding of these United States of America. I am just personally tired of hearing them slandered by political cheap shot artists. Caucasian men have set the standard for personal and national liberty that all of us, of whatever gender and ethnic background we may be, do currently enjoy in this great and bountiful land we call home. Their blood has gone into the life of this country. Their thought, standards, and sheer courage and persistence in battle have offered hope to the huddled masses yearning to breathe free. The sacrifice of the women who loved and supported them has gone into it’s heart. The respect of their sons and the love of their daughters has enabled this courage to be passed down through the generations that have continued to hold this nation up in times of trial and cultural slander.

These men respected their women — their wives, mothers, daughters, aunts, even cousins and worked to support them so that they would not have to deal with the roughness and often sexually offensive atmosphere of a man’s world. They did this because they were decent men, and kind, and had some tenderness of heart where their women were concerned. They were not chauvinistic. They were loving fathers, husbands and brothers.  They had a very good reason for wanting their wives and daughters to stay home.

When it comes to the extent of sexual pressures experienced growing up there is no such thing as equality. Young men get the hormonal crap beaten out of them while young women basically cruise and snooze in comparison. Men need their outlets of speech and humor to bear the load of sexual pressure with which they are afflicted from puberty, which is why they didn’t want females in their so-called male only occupations and why they did not encourage co-education at the university level.  They had no wish to be offensive and back in the day, men were very careful about how they spoke and acted around the ladies in social situations. With the onset of Women’s Liberation in the sixties, an astonishingly small group of females with serious gender issues of their own made enough public noise to over ride the protests of these men and look at the result.

We are missing our men, here in the land of the free. But more precisely still, we are missing our fathers. The decent fathers who do not just stand by with their mouths shut while political and educational pimps of both genders soil the emotional health of our children for the sake of their own vanity and the cheapest sort of political grandstanding.

Men need to be respected, because they are men. Their sexual and emotional needs are not to be made a subject of public derision or censure, neither are they to be considered any kind of crime. Their ability to lead with courage and honor is not ever going to be replaced by feminism.

Sexual modesty is, essentially, a masculine virtue. Think about this for thirty seconds or so and you will see that this is true. With the subverting of gentlemen in our society and all that term signifies, we are left with the flesh – flashing whorish climate of today. Our young people are not flourishing in it.

The last word? I am proud of my guys. They have a long history of beating tyranny in whatever form it takes, Feminism is one such and we will beat that too. Because although our men have been put on the front lines of this gender war by the emotionally unstable, our history of helping each other when times get tough will see us through. There is nothing wrong here that cannot be solved quite readily with cooperation  between genuinely considerate adult men and women,  whatever ethnic origin they may be.

How about a little grace here, people.

With the rise of Women’s Suffrage and the ongoing march of Women’s Liberation, we have lost sight of some very basic values. The importance of feelings. Does this statement sound to you like an oxymoron? It’s not. I will explain.

Emotional fulfillment is the most important aspect of our lives as sentient beings. It is not sexual fulfillment, it is not financial “success,” it is not the acquiring of a higher educational degree. The need for refined, emotional fulfillment is what separates us from the other animals whose needs are much more rudimentary and essentially physical in nature. Emotional fulfillment is supplied by others who care about you as a person, people who are genuinely interested in the highs and lows of your life everyday, both the small and the large. The process of fulfillment is completed by your returning of these interests to those who supply them to you. As of this date, the 14th of April in the year 2013 Current Era, America has more college graduates and less emotionally fulfilled citizens than any other country in the history of this planet.  Let us now trace the cause of this phenomenon. It comes in two installments.

Part one. The Wife and Mother or — Displaced Homemakers.

Women are the emotional heart of the family. Our ability to empathize makes us invaluable as emotional supporters wherever needed. Being a wife and mother is a bona-fide career. To excel at anything, one must pursue it as a life focus. You do not hear of an eminent neurosurgeon who is also a world-renowned astrophysicist. The reason that men have never wished for their wives to also have a career is that she will be the emotional center of their home. He provides the money to support the home and she provides the emotional fulfillment. If she has to work outside the home, all of that emotional fulfillment will be missing. And nowadays, it is. It is only within the last forty years that our society has deliberately turned it’s face away from the vital importance of the role of wife and mother. This desertion has been engineered by other women. Men really had nothing to do with it.

Women’s Suffrage and Liberation have insisted that all female children born in this country be groomed for high-powered careers outside the home.(whether they want it or not) This notion is not powered by a wish for the girls well-being or personal fulfillment. It is based on the feminist teaching that as husbands and providers, men are not to be trusted so every female must be financially independent of all men. This is what we are currently teaching our girls in our educational process.  Being a wife and mother is a minimum-wage type of thing to a Feminist chiefly because it involves a healthy and trusting relationship with a man and Feminists are afraid of, and hate, men. If they want to live their lives based on fear and hate that is their prerogative but why are we letting them teach their personal poisons to our daughters via the schools?

Part two. The Husband and Father or — Displaced Husbands.

Back in the sixties when women’s lib was getting under way one of their battle cries was– “men have a career and a marriage so why can’t women? It’s not fair!” I addressed this issue in the above paragraphs. I know whereof I speak here because I had a front row seat for this bout. This  is the year 2013 CE and the decision is in. The American family unit lost on points. The sixties generation of females got what they thought they wanted–careers. The husband is now an after thought. It has been especially informative to follow the husbands that have been ‘supportive’ of her ‘career.’ I have listened to so many brag about that. Until they found he was having an affair with his co-worker because ‘she made him feel special.’  That really was the wife’s job you know, but she was so busy being liberated and supported and career oriented that she paid no attention to his emotional needs. And you know what? It was all his fault for being unfaithful.

This post is about the importance of feelings and I am stating here that men have feelings too. They need to feel needed. Anyone does. Being the provider for the family is really the only way a decent man has of showing his love in a practical hands-on manner. It is especially important to him in his feelings as a husband. We have allowed our daughters to be taught to despise their husbands feelings and needs as being only ‘male ego’ and unworthy of notice. Since the onset of women’s liberation it has become a point of honor with many females to totally ignore the emotional needs of the men in their lives. It really has. Is this humane? Is this an appropriate response to perceived gender issues? Is this what ‘liberation’ has done for females as a whole? So, now we have lots of divorced female wage earners with a career who are really struggling to provide for their fatherless children all alone and about ninety percent of the time this situation has been engineered by the women themselves. This is the financial independence that their schooling taught them to seek. The women are unhappy, their children are unhappy, and the men who have been driven out of their position as husband, provider and father by the totally unrealistic expectations of the women they married are more unhappy than the rest. Yes, most of these men are unhappy with being divorced from their homes and children.

So what’s the bottom line here? The young women of America, our future wives and mothers are being emotional brutalized themselves by our educational system and it’s expectations of them. The Feminist agenda thought to change the world by changing the way our daughters are educated. They thought that by teaching young girls to be assertive, competitive, emotionally hard-boiled, and financially self-centered they would really “show” the evil man’s world what was what and be better off themselves. And just look at the mess they have made.

If a young girl really is motivated towards a career instead of marriage, by all means support her choice. But we need to stop selling our girls the notion that they have to do both. We need to re-instill in our girls the sense of respect for marriage and motherhood that is natural to them and allow room for it to develop. The last forty years have been artificially induced by a small set of unbalanced feminine minds and we are quite capable of seeing that this stops so that our future husbands, wives, and children have a stable home where the importance of everybody’s feelings are given the right attention.

There are only three legitimate functions of government for free people.

1.) National defense.

2.) A postal service.

3.) Maintenance of roadways

There is nothing else that requires a collective input on a national level. There is nothing else that requires funding from a national treasury. Readers please note that life choices are not included among the three.

We are having so much civil and legislative trouble in America today because we have raised up a legislative mentality that believes itself endowed by the Creator with the unalienable right to mind everyone else’s business for them. How these cretins have arrived at that conclusion is fairly murky but the general cause is apparent enough. A Petticoat government that feels is has to make everyone “safe” – according to it’s own effeminate agenda. Most of this insanity got it’s start under the Kennedy administration.

It is not the business of government, on either the state or federal level, to do most of the things now required of it. Everyone has to wear seat belts, everyone has to have child seats, everyone has to fund Medicare, everyone has to pay for health insurance, everyone has to agree with homosexual activity, no one can smoke a cigarette, the federal government takes a full third of your paycheck and most states take more, everything has to have a “warning” label just in case some idiot leaves a dry-cleaning bag in the babies crib, the list is virtually endless. None of this is legitimate government. The income tax is not legitimate, never was. Allowing this particular scam to go unpunished has brought us all to our present deficit scam which has been hugely aggravated by the cost of this mommyism legislation.

All of this has been caused directly by allowing women into places of public authority. They can’t take the heat. They pass legislation to soothe their emotions. Sometimes people make personal choices that are not particularly wise. In certain types of accidents, like head-on collisions, the wearing of a seatbelt may save your life. If you choose not to wear one, on your own head be it. This is what any mature adult male will tell you and it is the truth. Adult women cannot do this. They have the mistaken notion that if they see the results of someone else’s bad decision, they are responsible for it. They want to make everyone else’s decisions for them, just in case someone doesn’t make the “right” one. That is, one that the women agree with and that makes them feel comfortable. Accidents happen. They are tragic and emotionally upsetting. Our female oriented policy makers are always going to pass legislation to “make sure it doesn’t happen again!” I am truly sorry to be so blunt but this is just plain stupid. Of course they will happen again, they are accidents. Suck it up Sisters and stop spending our tax dollars creating useless legislation and wasting it on “investigations” as to who is to blame. If it’s an accident, no one is to blame.

Petticoat government.

No one can manufacture leaded paint anymore because some child might put a piece in it’s mouth and get lead poisoning. It is mommy’s job to see that this doesn’t happen, not the federal governments. Taking the lead out of paint has severely retarded it’s useful life as a preservative of homes. I can remember when a homeowner had to paint their house just once every twenty years or so. Now you have to repaint every four or five. Would anyone care to work up some figures as to how much this is costing homeowners in this country? I wonder if the National Organization of Women got kickbacks from Sherwin Williams?

In the book “1984” Big Brother was depicted as the ultimate government evil. He should have been portrayed as Big Momma instead because this is where all this over seeing, all seeing, intrusive, insulting, government regulation is coming from. We are all adults, we are capable of making our own decisions. Life choices are not a governmental department. Women, collectively are incapable of dealing with that fact on a public level, which is why our great-great grandfathers didn’t want them in the public arena. They were right.

I have an idea! Let’s stop electing them! We have had over eighty years of women in politics and it should be obvious by now that they do not know how to mind their own business. Running the country is not the same thing as managing your own home or family. It requires a much more elevated view of things and entirely different people skills. The feminine mentality is just not making the grade here. I will paraphrase the battle cry of the Suffragettes of 160 years ago–

If men were allowed to run the country, things would sure change, I can tell you that!

I have had a lot to say about petticoat government lately. I have expressed my dissatisfaction with the methods, aims, leadership, and so-called “accomplishments” of both the Women’s Suffrage Movement and it’s granddaughter, Women’s Liberation. I think that for clarity’s sake, I need to develop this theme just a little more.

Back in the day, before the suffrage movement was just getting under way, there was a genuine need for reform on several levels. The women in most upper class western societies  had no effective legal redress against abusive fathers or husbands. If they left them, the man in question could just hunt them down and bring them back. That was the law, very like that which governed runaway slaves. Women had no real property rights in many instances and as they were barred from pursuing a lucrative profession their only option was to try and get a job as a chambermaid, governess, or some other minimum wage job where they would be exposed to the predations of any male in their sphere. This really amounted to no choice at all and then it only worked if they were not pursued by the law. Middle and upper class females were raised to be dependent on their men and if these men happened to be drunken a-holes, well, the poor things were basically stuck. A well bred lady didn’t make a public scene about family troubles.

Notice that I specified upper class here. The females who were born into less affluent families did not have the same problems. The accepted standard of behavior was far different in the working class. If dad or hubby got drunk and tried to be abusive, young Nell or Daisy was as apt to brain him with the fry pan as not and let the chips fall where they would, and dad and hubby knew that. The working class families lived their lives in the kitchen where fry pans were close at hand. The ladies of the upper class lived in the drawing room and had no such domestic weaponry at their disposal. I suppose they could have brained their domestic brute with a Dresden china shepardess but somehow that would not have been the same.

It was also understood by the men of the working class that women sometimes needed to defend themselves at home and a man that brought such retribution down on himself was perceived as getting his just desserts, by the other men. In the working class, there were no servants to hide behind, no public perceptions of lady like behavior that hindered the women from doing what they needed to do if self defense became a survival issue in the home.  Everyone understood that domestic relationships were sometimes violent and ugly and this class of people were prepared to acknowledge and deal with it. This was by no means the case in the upper classes. And here you come to the real crux of the matter. The unwritten but highly effective codes of behavior that really govern our society, laws and legislation not withstanding.

Again we are back in the day. Upper class men were expected to conduct themselves as gentlemen in public. They were expected to be honest and competent in their business, to refrain from public drunkenness at social events and to pay their gambling debts, if any. This last was as big item. Social gambling was a very popular pastime in the upper reaches of society. Games of whist and other card games were a regular feature at balls, gatherings, and gentlemen’s clubs. This was socially acceptable. Men were expected not to gamble more than they could afford to lose. If a ‘gentleman’ lost more than he could afford he was black listed by his club(s) and ostracized from society. This was as low as a ‘gentleman’ could fall and once there, he was not allowed back. This was a very severe thing back then and the thought of it was a deterrent to many.

There were also places called ‘gaming hells’ that were run by professional gamblers where any ‘gentleman’ was free to gamble away the family estates and fortunes upon which his dependents counted for their support as well. No social pressures were brought to bear in such cases. The rest of ‘Society’ thought it a great shame of course, and gossiped freely about the recreants but– a ‘gentleman’ had a god given right to mind his own business and if he did not do so very well, that was just too bad. It was not an unusual story back then for ladies of means, raised to be ornaments to society, to find themselves on the street with small children to support and no means whatever of doing that. I will again point out here that this situation was inherently upper class. Women from working class families had saleable job skills, they were expected to have them, they did use them, so if a domestic problem arose, they were not nearly as bad off as their upper class sisters.

I have created this post here to point out two things:

#1.) Social pressure from a peer group is very effective in moderating excessive or selfish behaviors and the men of that day were well aware of it’s finer points and practiced in it’s applications so they had absolutely no excuse for not applying the same methods to those ‘gentlemen’ among them who were well known to be compulsive gamblers or abusive drunks at home. Those men did not do this.

#2.) Women’s Suffrage and it’s granddaughter, Women’s Liberation were not conceived for the empowerment of all women. They were generated by a miniscule group of nobly born ladies to correct the misbehavior of an equally miniscule group of nobly born “Gentlemen.” There were no “Universal Wrongs” against women at issue.

These social issues, domestic violence, drunkenness, and gambling, were three of the major motivations behind the Suffrage movement and it was a black shame to the upper class men of the western world that some of their women were forced to resort to such measures as public protests in order to defend themselves—from their own.

Our present governmental problems have arisen from this social background, this tiny percentage of upper class male misbehaviors and the lack of effective deterrents to it that were available to the rest of the upper class males and— were not used.

I hope I have kept this simple enough for my friends and followers. Since this issue is still causing such public outcry’s today. I will develop this theme by degrees, in a few more of my posts.

In conclusion, I will emphasize my sympathy for the issues of domestic violence and financial dependency that gave birth to the Suffrage Movement. I will also explain why I have no sympathy with the methods that were adopted to combat them. It should be obvious by now that they are not only ineffective but they are causing even more trouble, and these issues are too important to the survival of our society as a whole to be left in legislative and social limbo.

You may not think so at first glance but this is a natural segue from my last post—…The Time for All Good Men… We need a little historical background first.

At the start of the Women’s Suffrage movement, about a hundred and fifty years ago, the adult male in Western Society became “The Villain” and he remained in that role with increasing emphasis as the years went on. It is time now to rectify this public perception. It is entirely erroneous. If our men were as black as they were painted by the suffragettes, women would not have been given the vote. But they were. Our men did not have to do this and with the twenty-twenty vision of hindsight, we would be much better off today, both financially and socially, if they had not, but, they decided to err on the side of generosity, a habit with our men.

It is always very easy to find fault with the movers and shakers, especially if you don’t have the responsibility of getting things done yourself. This is exactly what happened with the Suffrage Movement. These women were loudly vocal about all the things that the evil, greedy, violent men were doing wrong in society, and if only they had the vote things would change they could tell you! Well, they were right about that anyway, things have certainly changed in America—for the worse.

The society built by our great-great-great grandparents was not perfect of course, but it was stable. Our several times great-grandfathers did not encourage their wives and daughters to want to vote or get out in the work force because these men knew what their women would have to deal with, and they knew their women were not up to the job. Besides which it was dangerous. Physically, sexually dangerous for them to go about unchapperoned. The women of that era had been sheltered for thousands of generations from such physical dangers by the vigilance of their men and were very prone to poo-poo the mere idea of it in the course of any discussion.

I will take a moment here to let the Emancipated Ladies and Liberals who may happen to read this blog finish shrieking. (Pause)

You see, away back then, these ladies were accustomed to being the social arbiters in the churches, drawing rooms, social clubs and cottage kitchens. In these venues the woman’s word was law. The men knew they were not best suited to the managing of social situations, the more tender sex was better at these interpersonal relationships and they were given all the indulgence their fathers, husbands and brothers could manage. In a word, these suffragettes were spoiled, not by one man but by a whole society of them who valued women for their tenderness and grace. And these very spoiled women really thought their drawing room manners were going to be enough to intimidate the evil, greedy, violent men of this world into better behavior. After all, it worked on their husbands, children, and social set of friends didn’t it?

And here you have the kink, the rub, the stone in the shoe of Women’s Suffrage and Liberation ideals. Drawing room manners are not adequate equipment in a man’s world. Our Suffrage grandmothers never had to deal with the realities of a man’s world and their liberated granddaughters are still not dealing with it. They still base their political solutions on the idea that you just have to explain to predators that their behavior is “inappropriate” and the matter will resolve itself. Any other route would involve violence and they are much too righteous to approve of violence. It offends their tender sensibilities. Men are violent and they are essentially better than that.

Absurd when put in it’s proper context isn’t it? It matters not what kind of predator you are dealing with—financial, sexual, or military, a predator is a person or group that sees something you have and has decided to take it—by force. The sexual and military predators use physical force, the financial use political force which is, intimidation by paperwork. That particular generation of very sheltered women were given the vote and opened the door to the financial and sexual predators that have been multiplying in our country ever since.  And by insisting on open homosexuality in our military, today’s very sheltered ladies are actively inviting military predators as well. Those ladies had no idea, really, of what voting caused or prevented (and their granddaughters don’t either.)  Their husbands and fathers knew they did not. Yet, out of a sense of familial fairness and indulgence those men allowed Suffrage—to the sorrow of succeeding generations.

Predators are kept at bay by a show of physical force and that is the only thing that keeps them at bay. Women do not have even half the physical force  of men and for this reason alone predators do not fear them. That being the case, females in important public offices do not provide any deterrent value on the social level where predators grow. All this petticoat posturing called “equality” and “political correctness” and “gender sensitivity training” is the feminine idea of force in controlling a world where predators lurk by a display of drawing room manners.

It is time for our men to step up to the plate. I know I am not the only female in America who has faith in them. It’s a bit late to repeal Women’s Suffrage but you guys can start having some real time discussions with your wives and daughters. I know this is very difficult for you when you love them and would much rather not see them understand the world of predators the way you instinctively do. Just tell them enough so that they can appreciate how much you do for them, just by being the husband and dad. You have been sheltering us for countless generations by your willingness to fight off our enemies. It is time now for you to remind American women just why they have as much personal independence as they currently enjoy. I will back you to the hilt. Semper Fi.

During the Revolutionary War, one of our founding fathers made this much quoted remark–“Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their country.”

We can really use our good men today.  Because we are in the worst fight America has ever faced. We are being eaten alive from within in the name of freedom and rights. I keep asking myself– ‘who are these people and where did they come from?’ Where did they get the notion that making movies about sex with children and animals is a freedom our fore fathers died for and our mothers sacrificed their husbands and sons to? Where did they get the notion that freedom of speech includes public profanity and self-centered whining about what their employers and the  government “owe” them just because they say so? Pornography  is available 24/7 now on all the cable and satellite networks and sexual predators of women and children are increasing. Why is this so?

It’s because we are missing our men. Our mature adult men who are husbands, fathers, and brothers and who still retain a sense of what they need to do to protect their families, their wives and their daughters and their sons. In the last hundred years of political babble about women’s rights we have not been blessed with thinking females to head up such a cause and we are reaping the results of this today. Susan B. Anthony did not deliver many addresses on the subject of sexual predators that I know of.

During the first years of women’s suffrage much ado was made about woman’s right to vote and hold jobs in the professions. The EVIL MEN were “oppressing” the females of this nation by not encouraging their daughters to go out in the work force and be independent. Wives and daughters of respectable families were expected to occupy themselves at home and in their local communities. The man of the family worked to provide for them. Usually the father or husband but often this fell on the brother or even the uncle if the father or husband died and did not leave some sort of income for his dependents. And there was an expectation that he would do just that if at all possible. That is why savings accounts and life insurance were invented. It was so that the tender ones in the family did not have to expose themselves to the very real dangers and ugliness that awaited them in the real world. How dreadful! How limiting! How unfair, and unprogressive! And how very wise. Yes, I said wise.

You see, the men of that era, just like the men of this era, knew that there are predators among us and that their wives and daughters and their very young sons have no defense against them.

There are financial predators that offer loan shark type deals and easy credit to the young. Sexual predators and criminals of every sort choose their intended victims by estimating how much trouble there will be in case of attack. Unattended females and small children are an invitation that they are not slow in accepting. Our men seem to have this knowledge hardwired into their psyches. Probably from the thousands of years as the designated protector of the tribe/clan. Women not so much and children of course, not at all. So in publicizing all this liberation for females, our society has in effect, posted an open season notice on all the tender members of our society. We have totally emasculated the angry father/husband/brother deterrent value of our men. And believe me, that deterrent is not to be sneered at. Predators do not focus on an adult male with a self-confident air if there is any other choice on offer and our society has given them a smorgasbord of choices by casting our men in the role of supreme social villain.

Our men are not villains. They are our fathers and husbands and brothers and we need to show the decent, caring ones more respect on every level–especially in public. Let’s ’empower’ them again, for all our sakes.

One of the reasons I tend to go on so about modern women’s issues is that I believe we are missing a very crucial point. And this goes back to the very beginning of the “Emancipation” movement of the 1800’s. Women were not allowed to do so many things back in the day. Voting was the very least of them although that made the most noise.
My view about women’s issues is this—
Of course we have brains as good as any mans. We can and did replace them in every hands on job the World War II effort needed while the men were away fighting to prevent Hitler taking over the world. They did what they had to and we did the same.
The real point to my mind is—- men cannot replace us. Certainly in motherhood. But look at our lives today and envision the life your young daughters are going to have. Graceless, restless, full of the cheapest public sexuality that demeans both men and women. Here is a news flash ladies, decent men don’t love the notion of being treated like a mindless stud animal any more than women want to be treated like breeding stock. Yes, there are decent men around. Look for the guy with his mouth shut.
This is the year 2011. I think we’ve made our point girls. Yes, we are fully capable of being scientists and doctors. Men however, are still not capable of being mothers and our homes are now a travesty. We are missing the stability, grace, and nurturing environment in our homes and therefore our communities that only full-time wives and mothers can provide. Men cannot replace us in this field. I think a woman should be able to pursue a career if she so chooses and I think we have pretty much got that issue licked now. But look at our country. Men are still working and being fathers and providers. That has not changed. We have so much trouble and unrest, especially among our children because we are all missing the efforts or our full-time moms. To her husband, children, and community, the full-time mother is irreplaceable.
I hope that women growing up today will now find the self-respect they felt cheated of in past generations. I hope that those girls who choose to be a wife and mother will commit themselves full-time to the job with a true understanding of just how irreplaceable they really are. Maybe then we can start to rebuild our homes, communities, and country.
