I'm putting this here, even though it could really go in several categories. Victims were mostly conservatives, his girlfriend is an environmentalist and her "husband," staunchly "anti-Trump."

http://heavy.com/news/2017/10/stephen-paddock-politics-political-views-beliefs-opinions-trump-stances-democrat-republican-las-vegas-shooting/

I was thinking the same thing.


There are never any "coincidences."

This makes sense in the absence of any other information, you have to wonder what led to this choice of victims.  

I would add that a motive of any suicidal mass murderer is go out in huge burst of fame and glory.  For the lesson of the next would-be mass murderers, I wish we could de-personalize him with the least amount of public attention possible.  Just 'Loser' or 'screwed up assh*le', not the greatest mass shooter of all time.

Also, his death needs to left out of the dead victim count.  He isn't a victim here.

Sometimes it isn't about the fame and glory.

Sometimes it's just about getting even... what "even" might mean.

Sometimes people kill, and no one ever knows.

I do believe as GM's article stated, that people usually do tell someone, but not always.

I also think that the media is purposely underplaying the victims, because they know it will make their leftist selves look badly, and there's just no way to win that for the Left.



A few things strike me as curious.

1.) What were his girlfriend's travel patterns prior to the shooting, and with whom and in what region of the Philippines is she staying with and where?

2.) Her husband is devoutly anti-Trump, and with saying that, why isn't she divorced, and how friendly are the shooter and her husband, being that the shooter and she lived together.

3.) An accountant having machining skills or knowing the people necessary to make/procure automatic weapons... some people say that he was bumpfiring it, but I don't think he was. I think they were auto, regardless, the people with the weapons will know.... but where did he get them, if they were auto, as he was not an avid weapons enthusiast according to his brother.

4.) Where was he educated and what were his parents like?

5.) His brother seems a bit of a liberal to me.


Lastly, he didn't choose his victims at random. Not a chance in hell. He had been there four days, bringing the weapons in, could have picked any other event, but purposely chose the country music venue.

6.) What was the venue for the preceding four days at the place where the country concert was held?

Just random questions I have.

EDIT: Evidently it was a bump stock device as noted here.

3).  Always be armed no matter the rules:

"But Gabe...we live in (insert oppressed socialist state or nation here) and we can't even buy a picture of a gun here".

A modern, educated man with a set of nuts in his bag will always figure out a way to be armed.  No guns?  OK, get your own knife.  Knife versus knife is a far better proposition than unarmed versus knife is it not?  My God, at the very least get a big fat stick that you can claim is a cane and that you can crush skulls with.  It really is not that difficult if there is courage, and a will, and a defiant heart that denies the state's right to control your destiny.

"But Gabe, the rules say I cannot have guns, knives, sticks, anything that could possibly be used as a weapon and they are about to pass laws banning ill will".

When you cannot live in safety, and in obedience to the established law, a learned man will happily become a scofflaw.  If you disagree with that, I really have nothing for you.  Sorry...good luck.


Been preaching and living by that for years.... a lot of people, even within the Tribe, don't like that. 


4). Learn to be violent:

This is why I am not impressed with the majority of martial arts training.  Too much sport.  Too much esoteric spiritual stuff.  Not enough violence.  We need more "martial", and less "art" - as it were.  I expect that today, the Monday after the London Bridge attack, the martial arts schools in the UK (and USA) will be filled with eager soccer moms and football dads (cricket-moms and rugby-dads?) looking for the easy solution to this problem.  And they will be taught esoteric stuff intended for the "perfection of character", or stuff developed for winning a match somewhere.

What they need is to be taught to physically destroy their opponent, crushing windpipes, smashing skulls, breaking bones.  The "real karate" that so few schools even understand much less teach.  But again, see item 1.  I have trained in hand to hand stuff since I was ten years old and I would prefer to not face  against a knife empty handed.


There should be more teachers around, that have actually killed people.

The two (sports and training vs actually doing it), are completely different things and mindsets.

Good article.

Hard to have an official "DB Gathering" without a goodly number of full Dog Brothers-- but "fight days" would be something to consider.


Harder to become a full dog when you just can't make it to gatherings. With respect, been doing this for a while now Guru.

Just something to think about that I was throwing out there, with some evidence. There are lots of people here that would fight, and you already have myself and Sanchez in two distinct parts of the country, plus everyone else from Latin America in our situation. It could work out for everyone.

Why Mexicans don't come fight in gatherings in the States (leaving the obvious visa issues out of it):

https://www.statista.com/statistics/226956/average-world-wages-in-purchasing-power-parity-dollars/

The 5.35 to 1 purchasing power the States have over Mexico would explain it.



Gatherings here would be nice.

Good post.

Minor comment: 

"Here in Mexico, per INEGI and IMSS, men suffer 90% of the workplace fatalities"

My understanding is that in the US the number is 95%.


Thank you Guru. The number is actually close to the US number. I typed "90% for convenience. If necessary, I can retrieve the exact stat.
12  Politics, Religion, Science, Culture and Humanities / Politics & Religion / Kansas Non-Citizen Voter Fraud Conviction on: April 12, 2017, 06:51:58 PM
"It was the first conviction of a non-U.S. citizen voting in Kansas since the proof-of-citizenship law was adopted, and the eighth conviction for voting fraud that Kobach has obtained since passage of a law in 2015 giving the secretary of state's office authority to prosecute voting crimes. [...[ Since the proof of citizenship law took effect in 2013, tens of thousands of would-be voters have had their registrations blocked for failing to provide the required citizenship documents."

http://www2.ljworld.com/news/2017/apr/12/non-citizen-pleads-guilty-illegal-voting/

It's not for a lack of effort on the part of non-citizens. It's all about the lack of effort of certain states prosecuting these crimes.



13  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: DBMA in Mexico on: April 10, 2017, 11:14:04 AM
I've fought in a two opens and two tribals, plus several fights outside of gatherings (including Sanchez, myself, and one of his students fighting down here amongst ourselves). I'll leave what I've done for a living out of it, in interest of the Tribe, but I'm thinking there aren't many that have done that for a living, much less in a foreign country.

If you and "Guru" Sanchez (who has fought in one open gathering IIRC), ever decide to have gatherings here in Mexico, I'd be interested.

I'd have liked to have fought in every gathering since I moved to Mexico, unfortunately, Mexican economics aren't what American economics are, or I'd have been at everyone since. I never missed a single one when I was in the States. Hope you all decide to have them in Mexico.

And as par for the course, in every article that you posted, each disparity in gender, is never an issue and minimized, when it is in favour of the female - “The slight salary imbalance in favour of women early on in their careers is particularly interesting, and makes that drop-off point in women’s careers and salaries all the more stark.” - Ann Pickering, HR director at telecoms company O2 .... men have to wait a decade to make more.

“Sadly, the opposite is true: once you get to a certain level, it’s a full-time role, which excludes many women from roles they would be perfectly capable of doing.” Sam Smethers, chief executive of the Fawcett Society ... why don't men get those jobs while working part time?

Smethers described the decline in income as a worrying trend. “Women have been suffering [from the economic downturn] more than men because they had even less job security,” she said. “They were more at risk and thus worse hit when the recession struck.”

Because they have men and welfare to take care of them?

"147 out of 150 of the biggest cities in the U.S., the median full-time salaries of young women are 8% higher than those of the guys in their peer group. [...] The change in the status quo has been marked enough that several erstwhile women's advocates have started to voice concerns about how to get more men to go to college. Is there an equivalent to Title IX for men?"

There's not. They know it. There is nothing any of them will really do about it, because they are not about to relinquish power.


Fun fact: The State of New Hampshire had a Government Commission on the Status of Men. It ws the only government agency or commission dedicated to problems of the male gender by definition, that I have ever encountered in any of my studies. Women have literally thousands of them, and in every country in the world.

It was discontinued due to budget concerns.


18  Politics, Religion, Science, Culture and Humanities / Science, Culture, & Humanities / Re: SPLC: Jack Donovan and Organizing Power Male Supremacy on: April 04, 2017, 08:48:51 AM
The SPLC is a thoroughly disingenuous organization.  Though this article is what it is, it does reveal some items of interest.

https://www.splcenter.org/hatewatch/2017/03/27/chorus-violence-jack-donovan-and-organizing-power-male-supremacy

"the chorus of moaning that emanates from the “Manosphere.”

I'm wondering if that is the way they put it when women speak about problems they suffer as a gender?

It's a pretty fair question.

Edit: I'm going to add, that much has been stated about US statistics.

Here in Mexico, per INEGI and IMSS, men suffer 90% of the workplace fatalities and are 85% of the amputations that happen, about 3/4's of the homeless in the ONLY study that exists on the subject, but the stated mission of SEGOB (Secretary of the Government), is the empowerment of women 2014 -2018.... http://www.gob.mx/segob/acciones-y-programas/programa-integral-para-prevenir-atender-sancionar-y-erradicar-la-violencia-contra-las-mujeres-2014-2018 (there are currently 101 different programs specifically designed to benefit women through the National Institute of the Woman alone - not counting others) and they're worried about anything greater than a 10% excess of men in politics... because male lives don't matter... obviously.

No studies at all in fact, that portray women in a light that is superior (divorce, custody...and even the INEGI statistics fail to even ask men if they've been victims of violence from women - even though studies in other countries show that women commit DV at rates higher than men, they cherry pick data from England, but won't conduct the studies here in a manner that would yield objective data)... because of $$$.

"Equality."

The major problem, is that such a huge portion of the male psyche derives its worth from being a lackey to women. This is especially interesting when the logical conclusion that having neither XX or XY chromosomes does anything in the way of making one morally superior nor inferior.

It is this problem in particular, that prohibits men from even having any problems that might plague them as a gender set, especially in a society where equality is the stated aim; discussed in any meanfingful manner, and any statement of well founded concerns, is dismissed as "moaning," "complaining," or "misogynistic" and what is nothing more than an attempt to discredit it, in a further attempt to retain female supremacy in first world countries.

The list of female supremacy is a long one. When a gender can abort a million babies a year, and legally abandon them in every state after they're born, but consume 90% of the welfare and have men thrown in jail for not paying child support and spending two decades through use of the male body, in involuntary servitude, and still have the ability to label men as the deadbeats, it is clear who has the power in that equation.

Labor quotas, implemented in every high paying job, but none of the physically demanding jobs, women graduating with degrees in higher numbers than men across the spectrum.

Violence that men suffer, blamed on men, even when perpetrated by a woman.

Hollywood's violence against men, and complete lack of respect for men (any doubt to this, ask yourself why the physical act of a woman being killed within the screenshot doesn't happen), or the joking of men being hit by women, or men being laughed at.

American combat deaths - Men - 650,000, Women - <200 (any death associated with war)....

Selective service for men... not women.

The list is so extensive; it would take a chapter to write them all down (which in many cases, they have been), and people still wouldn't care, primarily because women benefit from it financially, socially, politically, and in several other manners, whilst many men use this to determine their self worth, at the expense of other men.

Even when it is publicised, it is ridiculed or ignored.

There is not a single program in the world, specifically meant for the sole benefit of men, not a single government agency... not even one, in a world where people claim to believe in equality... not even one. That is a sobering thought. It can mean no less, than men are simply disposable and worthless, unless they are in the service of women.

A good example of this analysis, is asking oneself, "Is it acceptable for a man to die, in order to save a woman?" The answer to most would be "yes." Then to increase the number of men to "two," in order to save a woman, and many would still find this acceptable. Then onwards, to three, four, five, ten? How many men have to die, before it is acceptable to let a woman perish? According to Bureau of Labor statistics,, even when men die at a rate of 9-1, it still isn't enough to do anything to even that gender gap.
According to combat statistics, the point becomes clearer. If you are a man, you are worthless, at least in your government's and society's eyes. Do YOU accept that? Especially when they scream for equality, your money, custody of your children, while you pay for it and they hate you because you're never allowed to see them? They scream for double standards but no accountability and at no cost to their lives. When will stop accepting that? When will you stop obeying unjust laws? That's the question... because until men do, people will treat you the way you allow them to.




As men, if one believes in equality, men need to be willing to see women fail, and quit helping them, letting them fall, or admit to one's own hypocrisy. What one does not get to do; however, is claim equality for all, and then expect other men to suffer the yoke of the hypocrisy.

When scientifically and accurately controlling for extraneous factors there is NO wage gap. The will not stop the SJW (of course) from their politiking.  We here screeching from the LEFT who the RiIGHT ignores science.  Well here they ignore science:

http://www.nationalreview.com/article/446397/equal-pay-day-bogus-math

I've written a thesis on this. Nearly every single talking point the feminists have that has any weight to it, is from a third world country, and in first world countries, I've proven two things:

1.) That feminists still lie and that men are actually far worse off.

2.) That the governments know, through their own statistics, problems the PLAGUE men, and they do nothing, because of the revenue involved.

That's the truth of it.

21  Politics, Religion, Science, Culture and Humanities / Politics & Religion / Re: Electoral, Russians, campaign, administration, spying, hacking, interfering on: April 03, 2017, 04:27:47 PM
There are three questions and three answers emerging in the convoluted Russian spy intelligence scandal web that has been woven:

1) Did the Russians hack/interfere/change the outcome of our election?
2) Did the Trump team play a part in that if it happened?
3) Did the Obama administration spy on the Trump team during the campaign?

As the information is coming in, the answers to that are looking like: no, no, and yes.

1) Not unless other powerful (wealthy people - or "Illuminati/Bilderberg") types had something to do with it. Oddly, WE KNOW that illegals are registering and voting, and the LEFT could care less about voter fraud, but they're ALL OVER Trump. WE KNOW that the NC State Secretary had non-citizens overlooking absentee ballots as notaries... but no charges there....

2) Clearly "no," as Trump didn't have the access and power yet, that would be necessary to do such a thing.

3) Of course he did... (and to be fair) who wouldn't? But he did it in a way where it won't be tracked back to him, and even if it was... it isn't as though anyone on either side of the aisle have done a damn thing to Holder's "executive" privilege, nor Obama or Clinton, for having sent and received classified emails on (or from) non-government servers. And a newflash... outside of Trump, no one on the Left or right will ever do something to crucify one of their own, lestthey some day too, are to be held accountable.

Extra Credit - Has Anthony Weiner done ANY jail time yet? I doubt he will. Huma is still around (emails)...and so is everyone else that has anything to do with anything... all with immunity agreements, with the notable exception of Flynn.

Says everything one needs to know about contemporary politics, with scandals much larger than Watergate, and no one...at all, has locked a single one of them away with the exceptions of Bernie Madoff and the senator from Illinois (his name escaping me at the moment - starts with a "B" (Blagojevich - that's the guy). They're all corrupt... every last one of them, with maybe the exception of Trump... and even that remains to be seen.

Extra Credit - Maxine Waters and her husband, they bank and contracts... so many political scandals, can't even count them all.... Clinton and Travelgate, Clinton and Russian plutonium deal, her foundation, Bush II and warrantless wiretapping.... singing to the chior.

Elaine Marshall - Democrat - North Carolina Secretary of State

In charge of overseeing elections, etc.

More than 300 North Carolina notaries were illegal residents, records show



"A state representative is demanding the resignation of North Carolina's secretary of state after reviewing documents that show 320 people with no legal residency status were given notary positions for nearly a decade.

Rep. Christopher Millis voiced his concerns in an interview with Fox News over details found within documents provided by North Carolina Secretary of State Elaine Marshall’s office. Marshall told Fox News the Dept. of Homeland Security approved the notary authorizations.

VIDEO: DEMOCRATIC LAWMAKER TIPS OFF ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS TO ICE RAIDS

“We found over 320 nonpermanent residents that her office commissioned as notaries. Including one that was slated for final deportation,” Millis said. “It’s very concerning not just the fact that these individuals will have the ability to affirm items like oath, but also the ability in our state for them to certify absentee ballots.”

Millis says these same documents show Marshall’s office regularly accepted Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) cards as forms of identification which he claims on his website are not valid to prove residency. “A DACA card is a temporary employment authorization to facilitate safe and legitimate employment and income for otherwise undocumented aliens but does not confer legal immigration status.”

DACA RECIPIENT WITH ALLEGED GANG TIES FACES RELEASE FROM DETENTION CENTER

Millis stressed these same concerns in a nine-page letter written to Secretary Elaine Marshall on March 27th. He ended the letter by asking for her resignation.

“I make all of these implications very seriously and I’m not making any of this lightly,” Millis said. “Whenever I ask the Secretary to resign immediately or I made it clear to her that I will move through with a resolution for impeachment if she so chooses not to resign.”

In an email statement to Fox News, Marshall says Millis’ request for her resignation is a political attack by “an opponent in a recent election.”

“The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has authorized the specifically mentioned notaries to work here lawfully,” Marshall wrote. “That federally authorized status continues to be unchanged by the new Presidential administration.”

Millis also said a similar statement was made when this issue became public late last year.

“This being masked from the public and including a number of misleading and false statements made by the Secretary and her office since the article went out in September and all up until this point, its definitely clear it meets the allegations of her impeachment on malfeasance,” Millis said.

Fox News asked Millis what would happen to the notaries in question. His response: “We will see what happens with these notaries moving forward, but it’s definitely outside the letter of the law.”

A Notary Public is an official of integrity appointed by state government —typically by the secretary of state — to serve the public as an impartial witness in performing a variety of official fraud-deterrent acts related to the signing of important documents.


Edit: A more important question is the fact that Marshall states, “The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has authorized the specifically mentioned notaries to work here lawfully,” Marshall wrote. “That federally authorized status continues to be unchanged by the new Presidential administration.”

Does that mean that Obama was purposely undermining legal requirements of sovereign state governments as well as the Union?

Millis also said a similar statement was made when this issue became public late last year.

“This being masked from the public and including a number of misleading and false statements made by the Secretary and her office since the article went out in September and all up until this point, its definitely clear it meets the allegations of her impeachment on malfeasance,” Millis said.

Fox News asked Millis what would happen to the notaries in question. His response: “We will see what happens with these notaries moving forward, but it’s definitely outside the letter of the law.”

A Notary Public is an official of integrity appointed by state government —typically by the secretary of state — to serve the public as an impartial witness in performing a variety of official fraud-deterrent acts related to the signing of important documents.

Edit: A more important question is the fact that Marshall states, “The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has authorized the specifically mentioned notaries to work here lawfully,” Marshall wrote. “That federally authorized status continues to be unchanged by the new Presidential administration.”

Does that mean that Obama was purposely undermining legal requirements of sovereign state governments as well as the Union?
28  Politics, Religion, Science, Culture and Humanities / Science, Culture, & Humanities / Male to Perhaps Qualify as a Female Olympian on: March 29, 2017, 09:35:28 AM
"HONOLULU, HI (KHNL) As sports organizations around the world continue to update their guidelines to make it easier for transgender athletes to compete with the gender they choose it’s becoming a controversial topic in Hawaii’s volleyball community.

“It’s a touchy subject because volleyball is a main sport here,” says Tia Thompson, a transgender athlete.

Born a male, Thompson knew at an early age something wasn’t right. She says she only hung out with girls and liked girl things.

“Because of my religious background with my dad’s side and my mom’s side, we didn’t speak of it, but we knew. As soon as I turned 18 and I moved out, I started transitioning and started taking hormones,” Thompson says.

The now 32-year old says volleyball has been the constant in a life full of changes. In January, she was just approved by USA Volleyball to compete as a woman. Before that, she was required to play in the men’s division at all USAV sanctioned events.

USAV requires transgender women to undergo hormone replacement therapy consistently for at least one year — with proper documentation — and they also have to change their identification, like passports and birth certificates, to female. Before, some organizations, including the Olympics, would require trans athletes to have sex reassignment surgery.

“It took me three years to finally get approved with all the transitioning and all the hormone therapy and submitting all my paperwork to the gender committee,” she said.

There has been some push back from the community. Players and parents we spoke to who did not want to be on camera say it’s not fair for teams with biological women because it creates an unrealistic level of competition."

This has gone on too long. Take the hit, end the regime on humanitarian grounds, reunite the peninsula... done deal. This has gone on long enough.

Even peacefully, reunification of Korea would be an epic economic and humanitarian crisis.

Undoubtedly. It made me think of the differences between the States and Mexico; cultural, economic, legal... and the two are much more closely tied in many ways than North and South Koreas' are, and the fact that the US and Mexico being drastly different. Still, it does make one think that maybe it's time to let the milk spill, and clean it up.

I have been thinking since you posted this, and it occurs to me; "we're both law enforcement, and have been for a while. Would either of us fail to execute an arrest warrant forr a murderer, just because it would throw a family or town into economic chaos?"

Kim Jong-un is no different. If it was me, he'd be gone so fast his head would spin, and (to me), we'd all collectively pick up the pieces afterwards, whatever they may be.

As you guys probably remember, my proposal was for this sort of tax REPLACING other taxes; that said I find the politics of this proposal intriguing , , ,

If it helps in a race to zero, I'm all for it.

Unfortunately, the point that had been brought here by others, is that the government has a terrible track record on relinquishing power or money.

Doug makes a great point on the budget. I have to think that perhaps we're spending far too much anyways.

I can say, that living here, going from 100K a year to 10,000 pesos a month, I live a higher quality of life than I did there in many ways. As soon as I finish law school, some lawyers in el DF, clear a million USD a year.

The problem isn't just the budget,,, it's the price of supporting people who (you rightly elude to on another thread), will not be productive because they make more not to be in terms of welfare.

We have to find a way to quit supporting people who simply will not support themselves. It isn't heartless, it's smart.

When that happens, a high quality of life will be less expensive, and there will be fewer people breeding for cash, because they won't be being rewarded for it.

Bring back the family model, stop encouraging divorce... women receive 90% of the welfare. That has to stop. It's destroying everything and everyone... even if it's through destroying society itself.

Why can I not be justifiably angry that so many people in this country are getting something for nothing while I struggle for 5 months a year to pay for it.  Why do I NEVER have a voice?  Why is there no one who will stand up for me?  Why am I always taken for granted?  

[...]These are the people who day in and day out pay INTO a system and never get ANYTHING back and are constantly forced to hear about everyone else's sob stories.  All the other "victims" and identity BS.


Hear, hear.

Addressing another point from ccp: 
...Why can I not be justifiably angry that so many people in this country are getting something for nothing while I struggle for 5 months a year to pay for it.  Why do I NEVER have a voice?  Why is there no one who will stand up for me?  Why am I always taken for granted? ...


ccp, You (we) will NEVER win the political argument that taxes are unfair to the productive and relatively well-paid.  It has to be won on the other side of it.  Big government and all these spending programs are hurting the beneficiaries.  Look at the inner city, the war on poverty and the cycle of dependence and perpetual low income created.  With SSI, Section 8, food stamps, FAFSA and on and on including Obamacare, recipients essentially enter a contract with the government to stay poor or lose benefits.  As the benefits get larger and larger, the contract to be permanently low income becomes unbreakable.


Nature's Law... "Produce or get smashed."

Take away every safety net and let Nature run its course.

I'm saying that knowing that I full well, paid for years, to support my political opponents. I have no wish in doing so, and I'm not apologetic about it. I worked two full time jobs for over a year, in the States, only to never see my daughter and have most of it seized in taxes, to go support a breeding factory that gets compensated accordingly for being more productive, who will all grow into votes that are cast directly against my interest. No thanks.

I will look back in a few years here, to see if I still feel the same way.

EDIT: BTW.... The Crimeans aren't Ukrainian. They never have been. They are a distinct ethnic culture, and going back far enough, it wasn't anyones. Kruschev "gifted" it to the Ukrainian SSR, when the Soviet Union was still effective, and not as anything to do with a national sovereignty, with a right to their own constitutions and languages (investigate the differences between Russian federal entities (republics, and krays,) compared to those that don't (regions, districts, & 3 federal cities), listed in rank, and each having the capacity historically to be subjected the the preceding, with the exception of the federal cities. Crimea was "gifted" to the Ukrainian SSR as a matter of administrative convenience as well as personal convenience (being that Kruschev is Ukrainian).

The Crimea  is now recognized by Russia, as "The Republic of Crimea," which gives them several rights that they would not have under Ukrainian rule, amongst them, the right to their own constitution and a certain level of self governance and determination.

Also interesting, is the fact that this isn't the only problem Ukraine is having, as with the Donetsk People's Republic (also backed by Russia).

Just throwing that out there. It seems that Russia is a lot more willing, to give locals a lot more power than Ukraine is willing to do.

Thank you, to both of you.

Doug, I don't disagree at all.

I came across this gem this morning... it is only relevant because there is a government committee attached to it, capable of influencing policy.

"Lean in"? How about lean on?

Australian columnist Sarrah Le Marquand offers this winning strategy for getting more women into the workforce: Make it illegal to be a stay-at-home mom.

Or actually, since she's Australian, make it illegal to be a stay-at-home mum.

Yes, that's the headline for Le Marquand's latest column for the Sydney Daily Telegraph: "It Should be Illegal to Be a Stay-at-Home Mum."

And she's bluntly upfront about what she wants, which is unconditional surrender in the mommy wars:

Rather than wail about the supposed liberation in a woman’s right to choose to shun paid employment, we should make it a legal requirement that all parents of children of school-age or older are gainfully employed.
And here's the reasoning:

Only when the female half of the population is expected to hold down a job and earn money to pay the bills in the same way that men are routinely expected to do will we see things change for the better for either gender.
Only when it becomes the norm for all families to have both parents in paid employment, and sharing the stress of the work-home juggle, will we finally have a serious conversation about how to achieve a more balanced modern workplace.
Only when the tiresome and completely unfounded claim that “feminism is about choice” is dead and buried (it’s not about choice, it’s about equality) will we consign restrictive gender stereotypes to history.
So long as we as a nation cling to the lie that only a stay-at-home mum is best placed to assume the responsibilities of caregiver then working fathers will continue to feel insecure about stepping off the corporate treadmill to spend more time with their children.
Take that, Sheryl Sandburg!

Le Marquand's demand to arrest and imprison any woman who dares to spend her time baking after-school cookies for Junior and Sophie instead of slaving in a cubicle could become part of U.S. policy as well. The international Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, whose 35 members include the U.S., recently issued a report stating that nations could solve their labor-shortage problems by putting mothers to work full-time. (Part-time jobs, the kind of employment that many women with growing children prefer, apparently don't count in OECD-land.)

The report singled out Australia as a particularly egregious offender in the stay-at-home-mom department. News.com.au reported:

Employment rates of women with children in Australia are 9 per cent lower than those of all prime-aged women, the report declared.
Urging Australia to help this “untapped potential” into the Australian workforce, the OECD recommends the government adopt “facilitation of a better work-life balance” and focus and the provision of affordable childcare.
"Work-life balance"! Whether you like it or not.

Because he went to grocery store once:

http://www.countryliving.com/life/a42268/dad-buys-ex-groceries/

What a great guy:

 rolleyes



I have often wondered why the courts find it necessary to grant primary custody to the women, when women are 90% of welfare recipients and "require"  rolleyes child support.

Many men pay for everything during the marriage, with the wife not working at all, and receive almost no child support.

Given statistics of single mother households:

43% of U.S. children live without their father (U.S. Bureau of the Census).
63% of youth suicides are from fatherless homes (U.S. Department of
Health and Human Services and U.S. Bureau of the Census).
90% of all homeless and runaway children are from fatherless homes (U.S. Bureau of the Census).
85% of all children who show behavior disorders come from fatherless homes (Center for Disease Control).
80% of rapists with anger problems come from fatherless homes (Justice & Behavior, Vol 14, p. 403-26).
71% of pregnant teenagers lack a father (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services press release, March 26, 1999).
71% of all high school dropouts come from fatherless homes (National
Principals Association Report on the State of High Schools).
70% of youths in state-operated institutions come from fatherless homes (U.S. Dept. of Justice, Sept. 1988).
85% of all youths in prison come from fatherless homes (Fulton Co. Georgia, Texas Department of Corrections, 1992).
61% of all child abuse is committed by biological mothers (Department of Health and Human Services Report on Nationwide Child Abuse).
90% of welfare recipients are single mothers (U.S. Bureau of the Census).


It is proven that single mothers fail enormously, and worse; fathers, societies and governments fund it all.

According the United States Department of Health and Human Services in a 2015 report to Congress, they collected 32.4 billion dollars [1], not counting interest and between $1-2 given to the states for every dollar collected.

It gets worse:

• An estimated 13.4 million parents lived with 22.1
million children under 21 years of age while the
other parent(s) lived somewhere else.

• One of every six custodial parents (17.5 percent)
were fathers. (Still speaks nothing to the rate at which women are awarded custody in divorces, and in fact, many states no longer even track divorces statistics, California - the leader - amongst them.)

• More than one-quarter (26.6 percent) of all children
under 21 years of age lived in families with only one
of their parents while the other parent lived elsewhere.
About half (48.1 percent) of all Black children
lived in custodial-parent families.

• Most custodial parents had one child (54.7 percent). (Where is the data for women with several children, but each from a different father?)

• The proportion of custodial mothers with income
below poverty (31.2 percent) was higher than that of
custodial fathers (17.4 percent). (Society requires men to actually work, and per the report, doesn't award men child suppot or welfare on the level it does to women - more gynocentrism.)

• Child support income accounted for over two-thirds
(70.3 percent) of the mean annual personal income
for custodial parents below poverty who received
full child support.

• About half (48.7 percent) of all custodial parents had
either legal or informal child support agreements,
and custodial mothers were more likely to have
agreements (52.3 percent) than custodial fathers
(31.4 percent)[2].  - (This doesn't make sense or line up with the USDHHS's stats, because they state in their report, that "Cases with Orders: 86%" [1] have been awarded... in fact, they track this metric in every single state, and actively seek child support judgements, even when none are requested by either parent, which means that the US Census Department's percentage in this criteria, is only about 1/2 what it should be.


Also, Figure 2. in the report from the Census Department (given the aggregate numbers involved - with women factoring in at a rate of 6 to 1, the percentages of women that do not work full time as men is alarming. The report refers to "13.4 million parents [...] referred to as custodial parents in this report," with 1/6 of the custodians being men, meaning, 2.345 million men are custodians, and 11.055 million are women. Of these:

2013 Percentages -

Men
1.58 million men work fulltime,
.483 million men work part time.
.281 million men are unemployed
(all as parents with custody)

Women
5.07 million women work fulltime.
3.41 million women work part time.
2.56 million women are unemployed (which is more than the entire amount of men that have custody).


To get a more comprehensive understanding, the national workforce should be examined.

The US Bureau of Labor states that 57% of women participate in the workforce [3], and that women and men are unemployed at 5.2% and 5.4% of the working age population [4], respectively. 23.2% of women with custody, are unemployed (which is an unemployed rate more than 9 times greater than men who have custody).

Of the 123 million women age 16 years and over in the U.S., 72 million, or 58.6 percent, were labor force participants—working or looking for work. Unemployed custodial mothers, make up more than 2% of the total female workforce which counts women ages 16 and older [5].

Of the 57 million women who are unemployed, unemployed, custodial mothers comprise 4.5%.

The Census Department states here that, in 2013, there are actually almost 8 times as many men paying child support than women, and that men pay almost 7 times the amount of child support that women do. They also state that in regard to custodial parents requesting assistance,  2.5 million women request assistance, compared to .3 million men (that is 8.33 times more often than men do)[6].

Transgender Wins International Women’s Weightlifting Title


"Laurel Hubbard, a 39 year-old transgender who was born male, won her first international women’s weightlifting title in Australia breaking four national records in the process.

Hubbard beat the competition by 19 kilograms.

The New Zealand Herald reported:

Kiwi weightlifter Laurel Hubbard has dominated her first major competition, taking out the Australian International in Melbourne on a night she made history as the first transgender athlete to represent New Zealand.

Hubbard, 39, won the women’s over 90kg division at the Melbourne event, setting four unofficial national records in the process. Hubbard lifted a combined total of 268kg – 19kg better than silver medallist Iuniarra Sipaia of Samoa.

Australia’s Kaitlyn Fassina claimed the bronze medal with 223kg.

Hubbard looked visibly emotional as she lined up behind dais awaiting the official medal presentation. But she kept the tears at bay, smiling and waving as she stood atop the podium.

Earlier this month the Herald revealed Hubbard had been selected to make her international debut at the competition after usurping Rio Olympian Tracey Lambrechs at the top of the division."
