I got this comment on my post MrMary Sarcastically Responds || 21 Ways You Do Not Want To Be Proposed To from Asklotta:
Let me tell you exactly why people get married with a 50% success rate…Because no one on their death bed said, I wish I was more selfish, I wish I had more me time, I wish I didn’t have family that loved me,…AND trust me on this one, they never said I wish I didn’t love as much…
DISCLAIMER: THIS IS INTENDED TO BE A COMEDIC SORT OF PIECE. IF YOU FEEL THAT I AM ATTACKING A HOLY SACROSANCT INSTITUTION YOU CAN
FUCK OFFREST ASSURED THAT I AM NOT.
Again, would you want to fly on an airplane that had a 50% chance of failing? Would you want to enroll your child in an elementary school where only 50% of the children graduate?
This is how I see marriage as it is practiced today:…
I’m going to hit you with a brash statement: “each of us at the core of our being has this intense longing.” While it’s not possible; we attempt to extirpate it with larger salaries, better sex, faster cars, getting married, or going to church. But, after we get acclimated to the new lover in our bed, or the new car in our garage, has anything changed?
My life’s plan has always been to live my…
“Our blight is ideologies-they are the long-expected Antichrist!” -Carl Jung
Yet here I am, month in and month out, dropping my pants for a stranger, letting her slide hot, green, organic wax along my vulva, around my labia, and across my lower abdomen with a thick, pale wooden popsicle stick just so I can feel “clean.” How can I subject a part of my body with such a complicated narrative to…
As big corporations embrace meditation, some Buddhists fear their religion’s being co-opted by elites
Powerful, well-funded institutions want to invest in Buddhism. They’ve been eyeing the neighborhood for ways to manage employee stress and put a more compassionate face on free trade. The only question is whether the current tenants will band together to disrupt them. Buddhists now fear their…
I often wish I had the power of a pretty women without having to have the operation. I could do magical things like:
- listen to Beyonce’s latest album and enjoy the songs,
- say the dumbest asinine stuff at the bar and have people pretend they’re still listening to me
- and most importantly, turn a common cellphone into a tools of torture.
Picture your busy at work and at about 10:30AM a barrage of…
High school senior Rachel Canning is suing her parents. She wants them to pay for her private-school tuition, college tuition, and living expenses.
She claims they threw her out of their home when she turned 18. According to her father, Sean Canning, Rachel was an “incredibly rebellious teen” who ran away from home because she didn’t want to abide by her parents’ rules. The rules include being respectful, keeping a curfew, doing chores, and potentially ending her relationship with a boyfriend who they feel is a bad influence. According to Rachel, they gave her the option of dumping him or getting out.
Her parents have also said that Rachel has had disciplinary problems, having been suspended twice at school and gotten in trouble for bullying her sister, according to the Daily Record. “We’re heartbroken, but what do you do when a child says, ‘I don’t want your rules but I want everything under the sun and you to pay for it?’” Sean said, adding that Rachel’s college fund is available and has not been withdrawn or re-allocated as she alleged in the lawsuit.
This is why America will never be the imperial force for destruction it once was. So far we have a significant part of the Youth demographic which can be killed by a peanut butter and jelly sammich (Gluten and peanut butter allergies). Now this! My parents were always clear in reminding me where the door was, if I felt that I was man enough to run things on my own. There was no college fund for me, just a dislike of authority and people in general.
To make matters worse. Her father is a retired cop. Do you know how many Negros and Latinos he had to rough up and extra tickets he had to give out so that she could even have a college fund? You bully your sibling, get suspended twice, didn’t want to do chores or be respectful, and decided that you would rather leave home over a boyfriend you is going to dump you after midterms first semester of college after having tea bagged some chick that thought he was another guy who tea-bagged her at a party the week earlier.
Social services paid the family and visit and found no wrong doing, only that Rachel was spoiled. What ever happened to people beating their kids and giving them horribly crippling complexes that forced them into the armed forces. Without generation or two of emotionally crippled people serving our country how can we continue to bully the world to acquiesce to our whims ?
If you want to read more about the case you can go here.
What would you do if your daughter was a spoiled cunt ? How would you deal with it?
Reverend Njohi said women who attend his services at the Lord’s Propeller Redemption Church in Nairobi are forbidden from wearing bras and underwear. Njohi said when going to church, people need to be “free in body and spirit” so they can receive Christ.
In what is turning out to be a major policy change geared both coming to terms with the changing times and repairing the image of Christians,…
Unlike having sex behind a dumpster a block from the club because you’re both so hot, invasions take some planning. Trust me on this I am American. Do you remember in 2004 when a top White House aide, former Treasury Secretary Paul O’Neill said that the Bush administration (sounds like this would be on the resumee of someone at a brazilian Bikini Waxing place) began planning to use U.S. troops to invade Iraq within days after the former Texas governor entered the White House three years ago
“From the very beginning, there was a conviction that Saddam Hussein was a bad person and that he needed to go,” O’Neill told CBS, according to excerpts released Saturday by the network. “For me, the notion of pre-emption, that the U.S. has the unilateral right to do whatever we decide to do, is a really huge leap.”
9/11 is a study in wish-fulfillment; it gave us pre-emptive justification for what we were going to do. It is as if God (if you believe in that kind of thing) seeing that we were going to: invade Iraq, kill thousands of people, and return the country back to a technological stone age defined by an insidious dependence on the fulfillment of Western Interest to guide the future of millions, gave us a perfect reason.
What is great about when Americans invade places is that we don’t need to hide behind flowery pageantry. With God as our point guard dishing us amazing passing and Jesus setting up a nice moral block, momentarily blinding our allies to our abuses (It is hard for thee to kick against the pricks when you have no moral center yourself), we don’t need the Olympics to plan to invade another country and silence all our citizens against our actions.
I wouldn’t be surprised if Russia has for a while invested in destabilizing the Ukraine and finding ways to agitate dissension.
I knew something was up with all those bullshit medals the Russians gave out at Sotchi. Checking this out:
The 2014 medals use a combination of glass and metal to reflect the landscape of Sochi, with its snowy peaks and sandy beaches. Their “patchwork quilt” design aims to capture the various cultures and ethnicities of the Russian Federation.
Sounds like they are cutting corners to finance an invasion of Ukraine but I could be wrong
On This Day (3/2/1889): In 1889 after years of trying to open Indian Territory, President Grover Cleveland signed the 1889 Indian Appropriations Act which officially opened all Native owned “Unassigned Lands” to white settlers via homestead. The initial land area amounted to 1,887,796.47 acres (2,949 miles² or 7,640 km²), however, soon other “unassigned lands” throughout the American West were opened to white settlers. These “unassigned lands” were considered as such because no Native person was directly living on them (i.e., had built a house, or had “improved” the land by constructing fences or planting crops). The U.S. government failed to consider that Native people regularly and cyclically used and resided on these lands when the appropriate season arrived and the resources were plentiful. This land rush has come to be known as the Oklahoma Land Rush of 1889 or the Sooner Rush.
We’ve all known that American Dream is someone else’s nightmare, we all saw Tom Cruise in Far and Away. The more of his movies I suffer through watching, the richer and more influential he becomes. The Indian Appropriate acts (of which there were a few,the 1889 was the last one) lead to the formation of the reservations.
About 40% of our country’s 4.9 million Native Americans live on reservations where the living conditions are “comparable to Third World.” 1 out 3 Native Women will be raped in her life of course there is the systematic failures of the judicial system both in and out the reservation.
Ourare in very very bad shape. Some psychologists and historians have said that: “the abuse of and children can be traced to the introduction of unnatural life ways into Native culture. Scholars support this idea and suggest that violence against American Indian and Alaska Native women directly relates to historical victimization. According to proponents of this idea, domination and oppression of native peoples increased both economic deprivation and dependency through retracting tribal rights and sovereignty. Consequently, American Indian and today are believed to suffer from internalized oppression and the normalization of violence.”
Just something to think about next time you cheer the redskins on, or support the name of military weapons after a decimated people.
BTW have you seen this commericial ? And is anyone of native American Heritage a reader of this blog ?Reminisicing || On March 2, 1889 The Fate of Native Americans were sealed On This Day (3/2/1889): In 1889 after years of trying to open Indian Territory, President Grover Cleveland signed the 1889 Indian Appropriations Act which officially opened all Native owned “Unassigned Lands” to white settlers via homestead.
Gender roles and more importantly our confusion about gender roles have many serious ramifications in relationships. I bring this up because while on Facebook I read a few interpretations to the phrase:”Let a man be a man”. Some women interpreted this to mean:
- keep lying to a man to let him believe he is in control,
- to not object to the tyranny of a man controlling the relationship.
It was different seeing him again, after remarking (how many days ago was it) … five days maybe a week ago on how odd it was to see him around a baby. Now very much like that same baby my father enjoyed smiling with and cooing at, he was swimming in a sea of impressions that though heavy with all manner of implications about us and his condition, held no meaning for him…
It’s the year 2028 and this cutting-edge robotics company OmniCorp lead by a ruthless Michael Keaton has supplied the U.S. military with drones for use overseas. In the beginning of the movie we learn that they have run into problems with bringing their robotic police/ counter insurgency technology into the USA. OmniCorp decides that they need to court the public. They believe that…
Let’s get some thing straight: human beings are a social animals. There is no independence if you live in society. (Unless you’re living in a forest hunting your own food and building your own shelter out of nature abundance.)
There is no independence in a relationship. You depend on your spouse/significant other/live-in boyfriend emotionally spiritually, physically, etc and he does you. If you…
I was reading a post on the blog on the honourable Lady J’s blog where she asked: “Why is it hard to talk about sex?” I was thinking about this on the ride home and I came to two conclusions. I would like to hear your opinion on why it is such a taboo issue. Here are my two reasons:
- For a few centuries Sex was use by religious authorities as a means to coerce the masses into acting in ways that…
