The Embarrassment to the Human Animal Called Feminism

I suppose there will be a time when a certain breed of the human animal, most likely rising from the Western world will invent an institution called masculinism. Single guys of all ages, big and small, fat and thin, old and less old, and above all, those made ditsy will gather together to establish ‘being’ of the single guy with nothing else to do. May God forbid!

But, then, one can make money writing silly books, speaking at silly conventions, teaching at silly university campuses, and appearing on silly television channels producing silly programs with audiences open to silly children of all ages to sell masculinism. May God forbid!

I spent several hours this weekend watching two programs on CSpan 2 or 3, where feminists spilled their guts, certainly not their minds, about things which concerned them….bullying and feminism. Noise and feelings were in, knowledge, awareness, common sense were absent.

Nature has given homo sapiens males the gift of being a natural born killer. It has provided the homo sapiens female to be born incurious and ditsy. There are other strengths and weaknesses accompanying these sexes originating in the development of the human being, but listing them is not the purpose of this article.

Nearly all fanatic feminists who meet to bleat about feminism and feelings are single, many homosexual, angry, upset librarians or teachers at university. They are not well educated nor well versed on anything but feminism, feminist theory, and other left wing politics especially Marxism, climate change and things green. Many are employed as bureaucrats.

Many are ‘professors’ in Women Studies Departments at universities from coast to coast.

Most American librarians governing librarian groups fit this collection of female sistership as communists.

In the meantime the vast majority of human guys in America work. They are curious animals and have through time ‘discovered’ nearly everything ever discovered on this and about other planets. Feminists wish to banish such histories. Guys not working often find crime interesting and plot accordingly. Others join the Islamic front.

Males are born to be inventive. They aren’t able and are not likely ever to compete with the species’ females in housing its offspring from ‘egg’ to delivery. Over the past 10,000,000 years and more of development of mammalia he was made to be a killer, to be curious, a builder, a hunter, a protector, an attacker, a defender, a collector, a gambler, a discoverer, an inventor, a warrior and artist, a Michelangelo, a Beethoven, Shakespeare, Lincoln, a GI, a hero, a Nazi, a Stalin. It’s in his genes. He was born to wonder in his time about purpose, his station in life among men besides siring for the survival of the species.

The human female animal is not driven by genes or jeans to be curious, to build, to explore and to possess all of the male showings and drives in life. Nature, outside of the Western World, still drives the human female animal to continue the survival of the species as the principal priority of her duties in life.

Yet, feminists of all sexes at university, Democrats all, advertise there is no difference between human males and females except socialization. One becomes a male or female by choice, by training, by habit, and so, ‘are made equal’ becomes their creed. She is advertised as man’s equal in battle…..a blatant and dangerous lie. She is advertised as being equal in all man’s work….also a blatant and dangerous lie. She has talents and gifts beyond child-rearing, tidying up, organizing existing matter, but is a natural dead end in the inventions of life. Feminists understand that and so, politically oppose all changes in societies except for those dealing with equalizing women with men……Nature’s dominating drive of life given the human female is her lust not for liberty, but for security (traditionally for herself and, more importantly for her children…..hence the love among single females for dictatorial Marxism).

Mothers of female off-spring may slip easily into the foolishness of feminism….especially if marriage fails or doesn’t matter. Mothers of male off-spring are magnificently motherly, even those with both sons and daughters. Those normal mothers recognize quickly Nature’s gifts to the sexes aren’t exactly carbon copies of one and the other.
The nation, perhaps the world, has slipped into a civil war between the sexes. Islam defends its tyrannical control of male over female in its culture. In the West Leftists succor female votes by feminizing everything fair, but advertising, teaching mostly foul, by turning to Marxism and dictatorship to attain and secure ‘equality’ by FORCE, DECEIT, and any EVIL necessary for the accomplishment of feminist ‘good’……for according to feminists…… existing laws, goodness and morality have been man made.

History, they insist, must be rewritten.

Harold Faulkner: Why There Is Global Warming (and why the government is lying)

We received the following offering from Harold Faulkner regarding Global Warming last week. Unfortunately, I missed it until today:

WHY THERE IS GLOBAL WARMING

People in the USA, are being told by the U.S. government and media that global warming is man-made. If that is true, how can the government and media explain the high temperatures the earth has experienced in past years when there were far fewer people? Let us look back in the world’s history: for example, between roughly 900AD and 1350AD the temperatures were much higher than now. And, back then there were fewer people, no cars, no electric utilities, and no factories, etc. So what caused the earth’s heat? Could it be a natural occurrence? The temperature graph at the bottom of this article shows the temperatures of the earth before Christ to 2040.

In the book THE DISCOVERERS published in February 1985 by Daniel J. Boorstin, beginning in chapter 28, it goes into detail about Eric the Red, the father of Lief Ericsson, and how he discovered an island covered in green grass.

In approximately 983AD, Eric the Red committed murder, and was banished from Iceland for three years. Eric the Red sailed 500 miles west from Iceland and discovered an island covered in GREEN grass, which he named Greenland. Greenland reminded Eric the Red of his native Norway because of the grass, game animals, and a sea full of fish. Even the air provided a harvest of birds. Eric the Red and his crew started laying out sites for farms and homesteads, as there was no sign of earlier human habitation.

When his banishment expired, Eric the Red returned to congested Iceland to gather Viking settlers. In 986, Eric the Red set sail with an emigrant fleet of twenty-five ships carrying men, women, and domestic animals. Unfortunately, only fourteen ships survived the stormy passage, which carried about four-hundred-fifty immigrants plus the farm animals. The immigrants settled on the southern-west tip and up the western coast of Greenland.

After the year 1200AD, the Earth’s and Greenland’s climate grew colder; ice started building up on the southern tip of Greenland. Before the end of 1300AD, the Viking settlements were just a memory. You can find the above by searching Google. One link is:

http://www.greenland.com/en/about-greenland/kultur-sjael/historie/vikingetiden/erik-den-roede.aspx

The following quote you can also read about why there is global warming. This is from the book EINSTEIN’S UNIVERSE, Page 63, written by Nigel Calder in 1972, and updated in 1982.

“The reckoning of planetary motions is a venerable science. Nowadays it tells us, for example, how gravity causes the ice to advance or retreat on the Earth during the ice ages. The gravity of the Moon and (to a lesser extent) of the Sun makes the Earth’s axis swivel around like a tilted spinning top. Other planets of the Solar System, especially Jupiter, Mars and Venus, influence the Earth’s tilt and the shape of its orbit, in a more-or-less cyclic fashion, with significant effects on the intensity of sunshine falling on different regions of the Earth during the various seasons. Every so often a fortunate attitude and orbit of the Earth combine to drench the ice sheets in sunshine as at the end of the most recent ice age, about ten thousand years ago. But now our relatively benign interglacial is coming to an end, as gravity continues to toy with our planet.”

The above points out that the universe is too huge and the earth is too small for the earth’s population to have any effect on the earth’s temperature. The earth’s temperature is a function of the sun’s temperature and the effects from the many massive planets in the universe, i.e., “The gravity of the Moon and (to a lesser extent) of the Sun makes the Earth’s axis swivel around like a tilted spinning top. Other planets of the Solar System, especially Jupiter, Mars and Venus, influence the Earth’s tilt and the shape of its orbit, in a more-or-less cyclic fashion, with significant effects on the intensity of sunshine falling on different regions of the Earth during the various seasons.”

Read below about carbon dioxide, which we need in order to exist. You can find the article below at:

http://www.geocraft.com/WVFossils/ice_ages.html.

FUN FACTS about CARBON DIOXIDE.

Of the 186 billion tons of carbon from CO2 that enter earth’s atmosphere each year from all sources, only 6 billion tons are from human activity. Approximately 90 billion tons come from biologic activity in earth’s oceans and another 90 billion tons from such sources as volcanoes and decaying land plants.

At 380 parts per million CO2 is a minor constituent of earth’s atmosphere–less than 4/100ths of 1% of all gases present. Compared to former geologic times, earth’s current atmosphere is CO2- impoverished.

CO2 is odorless, colorless, and tasteless. Plants absorb CO2 and emit oxygen as a waste product. Humans and animals breathe oxygen and emit CO2 as a waste product. Carbon dioxide is a nutrient, not a pollutant, and all life– plants and animals alike– benefit from more of it. All life on earth is carbon-based and CO2 is an essential ingredient. When plant-growers want to stimulate plant growth, they introduce more carbon dioxide.

CO2 that goes into the atmosphere does not stay there, but continuously recycled by terrestrial plant life and earth’s oceans– the great retirement home for most terrestrial carbon dioxide.

If we are in a global warming crisis today, even the most aggressive and costly proposals for limiting industrial carbon dioxide emissions and all other government proposals and taxes would have a negligible effect on global climate!

The government is lying, trying to use global warming to limit, and tax its citizens through “cap and trade” and other tax schemes for the government’s benefit. We, the people cannot allow this to happen.

A temperature graph normally goes here that shows the Earth’s Temperature from -2400 to guesses in +2400.

Obama to Hide ObamaCare Price-Shock until After November 4th Election

Manipulating everything is a special Barack Hussein skill. It matches his deceit of speech and ‘leadership’.

His arrogance arises from America’s deeply entrenched powerhouse unAmerican, antiAmerican current gang of self interest, hate and greed groups, black racists, feminists and sexists of all sexes and their teachers, atheists, the George Soros crowds, the greenies, the speech control political correctness spiders, the traditional labor bullies, and self-adoring university misfits…… the John Kerrys, Barbara Boxers, Hillary Clintons, the Harry Reids, the Nancy Pelosis, the Al Frankens and Charlie Schumers, crook Charlie Rangel, ditsy Maxine Waters, Shiela Jackson Lee, and Squaw Elizabeth Warren, only part of an endless list in all, a very Nazi-like crowd constantly gnawing at the aged cheese which feeds them.

Where, oh where do these foul balls come from?

They have been groomed in today’s JudeoChristianless America. They go to university, schools to learn the arts of jealousy, revenge, and intrigue.

They have been recently collected and glued together by a foreigner in the White House, the son of his black racist father-figure, Jeremiah Wright, a Barack Hussein Obama, raised familyless in Indonesia, Hawaii, and the darker side of Chicago, a graduate of Columbia, and Harvard, where he learned the tricks of the law trade.

He is the poster child of today’s post-democratic, empty-headed, lonely, disintegrating America.

Spying on fellow Americans, censoring truths of failure both home and abroad, dictating Marxist control of health and economy, endangering America abroad is the Obama trademark of success thus far.

Ebola and Obama by Thomas Sowell

Thomas Sowell
10/7/2014 12:01:00 AM

The Ebola outbreak in West Africa is both a danger in itself and a wake-up call for Americans — about President Obama, about the institutions of this country and, most important, about ourselves.

There was a time when an outbreak of a deadly disease overseas would bring virtually unanimous agreement that our top priority should be to keep it overseas. Yet Barack Obama has refused to bar entry to the United States by people from countries where the Ebola epidemic rages, as Britain has done.

The reason? Refusing to let people with Ebola enter the United States would conflict with the goal of fighting the disease. In other words, the safety of the American people takes second place to the goal of helping people overseas.

As if to emphasize his priorities, President Obama has ordered thousands of American troops to go into Ebola-stricken Liberia, disregarding the dangers to those troops and to other Americans when the troops return.

What does this say about Obama?

At a minimum, it suggests that he takes his conception of himself as a citizen of the world more seriously than he takes his role as President of the United States. At worst, he may consider Americans’ interests expendable in the grand scheme of things internationally. If so, this would explain a lot of his foreign policy disasters around the world, which seem inexplicable otherwise.

Those critics who have been citing Barack Obama’s foreign policy fiascoes and disasters as evidence that he is incompetent may be overlooking the possibility that he has different priorities than the protection of the American people and America’s interests as a nation.

This is a monstrous possibility. But no one familiar with the history of the twentieth century should consider monstrous possibilities as things to dismiss automatically. Nor should anyone who has followed Barack Obama’s behavior over his lifetime, and the values that behavior reveals.

A few critics who, early on, sensed something un-American, if not anti-American, in Barack Obama, succumbed to the idea that he was not a native-born citizen. That claim blew up in their faces.

Nor was birthplace crucial anyway. People born overseas have put their lives on the line to defend America, and scientists who escaped from Europe in the 1930s played a major role in creating the nuclear bomb that made the United States a superpower. Conversely, the country’s most notorious traitor — Benedict Arnold — was born on American soil.

Whatever the reason, or combination of reasons, that led to President Obama’s foreign policy disasters around the world — with the crowning disaster of all, a nuclear Iran, looming on the horizon — it cannot be a simple lack of knowledge or experience. Various former members of the Obama administration are telling the same story, of information and advice from knowledgeable and experienced officials being ignored by this vain and headstrong man.

Back in the 18th century, Edmund Burke pointed out that, whatever the institutions of government, most of the outcomes of what it does “must depend upon the exercise of the powers which are left at large to the prudence and uprightness of ministers of state.”

What did the American voters know about the prudence and uprightness of this untried man they elected president, as a result of his glib rhetoric and his racial symbolism? It is not just bad luck when a reckless gamble turns out disastrously.

No one knows at this point how big the Ebola danger may turn out to be. But what we do know is that official reassurances about this and other dangers have become worthless.

The erosion of Constitutional government over the years has become, under the Obama administration, a deluge of arbitrary edicts and defiant lawlessness protected by a grossly politicized Department of Justice.

It may be time to consider reorganizing the institutions of government, so that high officials who try to reassure the public about medical crises are not officials who serve “at the pleasure of the president.” Nor should the Attorney General, whose duty is to enforce the laws, be part of an administration whose law-breakers the Justice Department can protect from prosecution.

Sixty Percent of Americans in Poverty Not Working

Sixty Percent of Americans in Poverty Not Working

October 17, 2014….from the National Center for Policy Analysis:

The Census Bureau recently released a report on income and poverty, making clear that Americans continue to struggle, despite the Great Recession having ended five years ago. In fact, many Americans were much better off in 2000 than they were in 2013. Robert Doar of the American Enterprise Institute lays out the facts regarding Americans’ flat — or falling — incomes:

Median household income did not improve between 2012 and 2013. Adjusting for inflation, income is actually $4,000 less than it was in 2007 and $5,000 less than it was in 1999.
Poverty is up, two percentage points above its 2007 level and 3.2 percentage points above its level in 2000. For three years in a row, more than 45 million Americans have been in poverty.
The effect is especially pronounced among single-parent families. Just 9.5 percent of children in families of married couples were in poverty in 2013, compared to 46 percent of children in single parent families headed by the mother.
For black Americans, the situation is even worse:

The poverty rate for blacks is at 27.2 percent, 4.7 percentage points higher than it was in 2000.
Black household median income was $34,598 in 2013, lower than any other racial group and 13.8 percent ($6,000) below its 2000 level.
Americans need jobs, says Doar, explaining the link between poverty and employment:

Of those who work full time during a year, only 2.8 percent are in poverty.
More than 60 percent of Americans classified as being in poverty did not work even one full week in 2013.
America’s welfare programs, he says, are not acting as “work supports” for those in low-wage jobs, rather as replacement income for those not participating in the labor force.

Six Reasons to Panic Regarding Ebola

SIX REASONS TO PANIC

by Jonathan V. Last at the Weekly Standard:

(1) Start with what we know, and don’t know, about the virus. Officials from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and other government agencies claim that contracting Ebola is relatively difficult because the virus is only transmittable by direct contact with bodily fluids from an infected person who has become symptomatic. Which means that, in theory, you can’t get Ebola by riding in the elevator with someone who is carrying the virus, because Ebola is not airborne.

This sounds reassuring. Except that it might not be true. There are four strains of the Ebola virus that have caused outbreaks in human populations……

Do continue reading about this latest American drama despite Dr. Barack Hussein’s guarantees that he’s got everything under control as is:

The Death of Marriage in America: Murdered by Feminism

It is difficult to determine which of the many fascistic gangs within the now thoroughly Marxified Democrat Party has done the most to destroy basic freedoms, decency, tolerance, knowledge, and respect for fellow human beings once sought and cherished in American culture.

It must be Marxist feminism, the most dishonest and devious, the most Nazified, the most firmly established corruption in today’s cess pool of American culture, its educational system: the dictatorship to force universal equality upon people.

It has destroyed respect of the human female by celebrating, exploiting the animal in our human nature.

Feminism has been a cancer eating away at our country’s religious body and soul, its Christianity which gave the nation its purpose for being, to pursue Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness within the goodness of Godliness.

Feminism announces one commandment in Life: THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE HUMAN FEMALE AND HUMAN MALE ANIMALS BEYOND SOCIALIZATION!

A new, everlasting Fuhrer has arrived on the plant, the She of feminism.

This she of the planet declares she thinks, acts, performs all of the tasks given by her nature’s goddess identical to the he of the species. She is as tall and fat, as strong and swift, as brave and violent, as soft and seductive, as curious and investigative, as quiet and pensive, as noisy and obnoxious, and can attack and defend equal to all within the species (and the better to create “peace”……any negatives are kept censored to avoid hurt feelings). Moreover, she is Nature’s housing for the new of the species, no longer needful of a mate.

Today’s American she is very proud. She goes to college.

She has built and invented, defended and investigated, has succeeded in all tasks ever attempted by man, providing equally for all he knowledge and welfare, whatever has stirred by modern human intelligence…..or could have if it weren’t for the evil, violence, and bossiness of the human male animal standing, sitting, defending, law and religion-making in her way.

She can ride her bicycle alone….without any need from the he. Who needs marriage anymore with a he?

The following article is from the National Center for Policy Analysis:

Marriages Down, Unwed Births Up

The structure of American families has changed drastically in the last half-century, write Isabel Sawhill and Joanna Venator for the Brookings Institute, with the number of single-parent families growing dramatically.

While fewer Americans are marrying today, Americans are continuing to give birth, regardless of marital status:

In 1960, 72 percent of American adults were married. In 2010, that figure had dropped to 51 percent. Many Americans are marrying later in life.
Single parent families have grown dramatically. While just 7 percent of American families with children were single parent families in 1950, 32 percent of families with children were single parent families in 2013.
Forty percent of all births today are to single mothers. More than half of all births to women under 30 are to single mothers.
Sawhill and Venator note that the birth rate for older single women has fallen in recent years, but they attribute the drop to the recession and note that the rates could rise again when the economy improves.

The majority of births to unmarried mothers are to those without college degrees and from poorer socioeconomic circumstances. For college educated mothers, just 10 percent of births occur outside of marriage, but for those with only a high school diploma, 60 percent of births take place outside of wedlock.
