Tales Of Ordinary Madness

With the infuriating madness going on in politics, I thought it was a good idea to take a look at the general madness that is the current age. It really is remarkable just how crazy things have gotten in a short period of time. The other day I was picking around YouTube, watching some old clips from 1970’s shows and I was struck by how strange and alien it all seems. Even though I was alive then, I was too young to notice what was happening in the world, so to my old eyes, it looks like another country, because it is another country.

Even in my adult life, things have changed so fast that my teenage years now feel like the past of different person from a different world. When I was in high school, no human walking the earth thought teenagers fumbling around in the dark was anything but normal, as long as it was a boy and a girl, of course. Today, it is grounds to destroy a man’s life, humiliate his family and maybe even warrant physical harm. The Anita Hill travesty looks quite innocent now, compared to the disgusting displays we saw this week.

More worrisome, the madness we see is almost exclusively a female problem. The women of America have gone insane. Not all women, of course, but a very large swath of them. Now, it is possible many are just liars, taking advantage of the lunatics to gain attention, but that seems worse to me. I think I’d prefer it if some women are simply insane, infected by some unknown pathogen, rather than knowing that some portion of our women are sociopaths. We are faced with nothing but bad choices.

Anyway, this show is a sampling of the more popular forms of madness we are witnessing today. Sadly, most of it is female madness. I guess the last two segments could be argued as both male and female, but I don’t see that as encouraging. The fact that male and female are close to being forbidden concepts speaks to the madness of this age, more than anything else, I think. Perhaps that is the real shame of it. The men are no longer able to keep pace with the women in the race to the asylum.

This week I have the usual variety of items in the now standard format. Spreaker has the full show. I am up on Google Play now, so the Android commies can take me along when out disrespecting the country. I am on iTunes, which means the Apple Nazis can listen to me on their Hitler phones. The anarchists can catch me on iHeart Radio. YouTube also has the full podcast. Of course, there is a download link below. I’m now on Spotify, so the millennials can tune in when not sobbing over white privilege and toxic masculinity.

There is nothing that would benefit the left more than to criminalize normal sexual activity with no statute of limitations and no resort to due process for men. And many women play allng with this shit because it helps them in the job market. It really is a war of the sexes. Seeing the crazy was easy for me. I didn’t need 1970’s youtube. I spent the late sixties in south central Africa and had a worse culture shock coming back to America than I did going to Africa. And then I spent the rest of my formative years in… Read more »

Most of those are basically mail order brides and whores that marry soldiers (who don’t know they are whores, much of the time). I’m not saying that there’s a formula to marriage and that marrying non-Americans is a panacea for everyone. What worked out well for me (going on 39 years, now) is not necessarily going to work for others. I was just explaining my circumstances and experience. I too have seen a lot of bad marriages with foreign women and kids that suffered from them. Not something to take lightly. Good idea to know the woman for quite a… Read more »

There was a case where I live of a made up rape that contained that same detail “he turned the music really loud.” That comes from a surfeit of cheap romance novels I’ll wager. I’ve never heard a real rape story with that detail. The woman in that case was also compelling and provided many sensory details. There was no “depraved cruelty” there either.

It’s like there is something missing in many women’s lives. Perhaps it has something to do with the idea that our culture has become so transactional in nature. It is all about the Benjamins, about buying and providing. That’s the male’s job. Nurturing is the female’s job, and the idea that societies and cultures should nurture their young has been completely thrown out. It’s not about nurturing any more, it is all about indoctrination. Don’t teach your own children and instill your own values and culture into them. Turn them over to the public schools and the government instead. Atomize… Read more »

” Turn them over to the public schools and the government instead.”
If the schools made it easy for mamas to attend their kids’ classes, the mamas’ involvement there could mitigate the emptiness to which you refer.
We’d have to have more or bigger schools, for the extra seats for these mamas, but I’d be willing to spend that extra $$.

And, mama’s presence there, eyeballing how school brass handle things, would keep them more “honest”, and less prone to puking out SJW indoctrination.

How about Lindsey Graham’s epic face turn? He blew up entire carefully constructed alternative tribunal system the Dems had created in about 60 seconds by simply recounting the timeline of Dems actions.

Member

Credit…big credit must be given Lindsay. Others on our side are talking about his motives, or that he’s still Lindsay. Granted. But for this moment he was the only pair of balls in the room. It was strategically crucial that someone acted like the man of the house and wrenched back the moral high ground.

It took a Southerner by the way.

I thin it was the strategy of harassing senators in the halls and elevators that did it. Had the intended effect on Flake. Opposite effect on Graham. If you don’t kowtow to them then you are pro-rape. That was too much for Lindsey.

True. But had white, Evangelical, conservative, Southerners not cucked out last year when someone scared them about Roy Moore, we would be in much better shape.

So much in that podcast. I don’t think there is any going back either though I’m not looking forward to the destruction.

This is an interesting essay on the fate of Empires and the similar characteristics at end-stage one of which is female empowerment. This is not the first time women have gotten a great deal of power. We forget about all the times before because when the civilization collapses it becomes dangerous for women to be on their own and 100% of gains are lost so women always think they are charting new territory.

I’ve been looking for an appropriate forum to publish this comment and this is probably as good as it’s going to get. It may be better placed in the Rotten Elite column but time has moved on and nobody will read it there now. It is beyond time to reconsider and redesign the Senate confirmation process for all confirmations, but particularly for Supreme Court Justices. The current practice of interminable Senate investigations and hearings into the background of a nominee simply has no legal or historical basis whatsoever in the Advice and Consent clause of the Constitution.

My wife is relatively conservative but does not regularly follow politics or national news. She tuned in yesterday and was revolted by Feinstein and Ford. She immediately and adamantly sided with Kavanaugh and was cheering him on as he slapped down Feinstein’s questions.

I think they badly miscalculated and will lose badly in the mid-terms.

Member

Drake: “She immediately and adamantly sided with Kavanaugh.” A lot of women have been cheated on, as singles or when married. It cuts deeps. So when they see a good guy like Kavanaugh or a Mike Pence type, they really appreciate them and very much want to defend them. Around 15-20 years ago, a popular idea sprung up among women, (in women’s magazines, talk shows, etc) which advised women not to get married before 30. As they didn’t know who they were yet and are liable to huge mistakes. They can’t say this anymore of course, but it shows you… Read more »

Bless your heart. Ideas don’t just “spring up” around women.

When (((women’s magazines, talk shows, etc.))) trot out an idea, it’s not for the benefit of their viewers.

‘Ladies, postpone marriage until after 30. Don’t have children during your prime child-bearing years. Slut it up at college and burn your fertility out in the workforce.’

All these old ass ladies in positions of power show that women shouldn’t be making decisions – PERIOD.

I think it was Dr. Laura Schlessinger who got the ball rolling on the “women shouldn’t marry before 30” thing. Not being a big believer in marriage, I tend to agree with her.

I used to listen to her at lunch time during the 90’s in LA. She was a total controlling b***h. She had a degree but not in psychology or medicine. She was unfit to dispense any sort of advice.

She shacked up with her college professor which broke up his marriage.

When her mother died, whom she paid for her condo. she didn’t even know for two months and couldn’t even be bothered to pick up her remains from coroner until months later.

And you consider what this nasty skank says as valid?

Member

Rod, yes. 90% of the time I fully agreed with her. She had an ancient wisdom that wasn’t obvious because her delivery was so annoyingly yenta. It was subtle. Underneath her speed was a weight. As for your tabloid accusations, I know nothing about it. She may indeed be a crazy c**t. But my interest is on the message not the messenger. She was good for our side.

My wife who does not care much for Trump, was livid about Kavanaugh — and particularly his family — being treated so poorly. And she is not prone to that kind of “heat” in her responses. You can bet that the Dems just handed Trump 20+ House seats, plus 5 more senate seats.

Sally Field was very plausible in Norma Rae. I conclude, therefore, that Sally Field was really a southern factory worker and union activist.

She’ll be lionized as an icon for “women’s rights” for decades by all the Lefty institutions.

As it is, she’ll undoubtedly wind up with a seven figure book deal, film deal and probably a million-dollar GoFundMe. There will be college courses which feature her courage and bravery. She’s the embodiment of that ridiculous statue on Wall Street of the little girl facing down the raging Bull. Don’t kid yourself. She’s going be an icon… Read more »

To my mother and my sister, Ford is like MLK, Gandhi, and Jesus, except more stunning and brave.

This is a situation where different people can look at the same data and draw diametrically opposed conclusions.

Well first off she’s a nutter. Students who reviewed her classes either feared the nutty professor and her hour long political tirades lest they get on her bad side.

Not sure I see the connection. Jessica Lynch was an apolitical survivor that tries to live a fruitful life.

Who would have thought the dissolution of the family and traditional sexual mores would be bad for women’s mental health?

How could anyone have ever suspected that spending her prime fertile years being pumped and dumped by an endless succession of strangers instead of raising children with a husband who loves her would leave a woman feeling unsatisfied and unappreciated?

If only we’d been warned.

Dr. Kristine. I’ve always been in favor of women’s rights. And thought conservative talk of keeping traditional roles was just fuddy duddy talk…their fear of change. But I’m seeing now that it really has turned women into freaks. Those old crusty conservatives ended up being way more hip to reality than my punk ass ever was. It’s embarrassing.

Female nature itself precludes any possibility of women’s “rights” or “equality”. They are biologically driven to seek a worthy dominator to whom they can joyfully submit. The flip side of this is that they must necessarily have contempt for and dominate those who fail their tests or those who just happen to find themselves lower on the social totem pole. Women just don’t “do” equality. With them it’s all kto-kovo. The only reason they claim to want equality above all else is their desperate desire to escape the sado-masochistic prison of their own psyches.

To your discussion of the French dealing with Le Pen, there’s more behind it than Americans may be aware of due to the interpretation of French law. Germany and France (and all European countries) have laws that protect freedom of speech. However unlike American law, we have very clearly defined limits which are also included in our Constitutions and also in broader EU law. As you can imagine, historical events from our recent past have heavily influenced these laws and why they are phrased as they are.

I’m always somewhat impressed by how the left continues to reach new lows. My theory about nationwide female hysteria is that there is no longer a patriarchy and men no longer provide limits to women. All of the women I know, even friends and family, always push the envelope of acceptable behavior. There is no longer a patriarchy who puts an end to it so women keep pushing further and further. Ultimately this is not a sign of the 19th Amendment but the fact that men are no longer men. The western world will eventually construct a patriarchy, the question… Read more »

Z man, one quibble with how you imagined how the testimony of Judge, Kavanaugh’s pal, would have gone.

When they were done with him, and after the news media had “reported” on his testimony, there would have been nothing left of him but a blood spot… Read more »
