Tips To Look After Your Husband

December 4, 2018 13:26 UTC

This was apparently extracted from a 1950 Home Economics Book. More of this would make for happier homes, stronger marriages, and better behaved children. That most young women today will think this is misogynistic might be why they're so unhappy.

Ladies... if you're fortunate enough to have a husband capable of providing for a family on a single income, the least you can do is make the man some dinner and not dump on him right when he walks in the door.

Have dinner ready

Plan ahead, even the night before, to have a delicious meal on time. This is a way of letting him know that you have been thinking about him and are concerned about his needs. Most men are hungry when they come home and the prospects of a good meal are part of the warm welcome needed.

Prepare yourself

Take 15 minutes to rest so you will be refreshed when he arrives. Touch up your make-up, put a ribbon in your hair, and be fresh looking. He has just been with a lot of work weary people. Be a little gay and a little more interesting. His boring day may need a lift.

Clear the clutter

Make one last trip through the main part of the house just before your husband arrives, gather up school books, toys, paper, etc. Then run a dust cloth over the tables. Your husband will feel he has reached a haven of rest and order, and it will give you a lift too.

Prepare the children

Take a few minutes to wash the children's hands and faces (if they are small), comb their hair, and if necessary, change their clothes. They are little treasures and he would like to see them plating the part.

Minimize all noise

At the time of his arrival, eliminate all noise of washer, drier, dishwasher, or vacuum. Try to encourage the children to be quiet. Be happy to see him. Greet him with a warm smile and be glad.

Some don'ts

Don't greet him problems or complaints. Don't complain if he's late for dinner. Count this as minor compared with what he might have gone through that day.

Make him comfortable

Have him lean back in a comfortable chair or suggest he lie down in the bedroom. Have a cool or warm drink ready for him. Arrange his pillow and offer to take off his shoes. Speak in a low, soft, soothing, and pleasant voice. Allow him to relax -- unwind.

Listen to him

You may have man things to tell him, but the moment of his arrival is not the time. Let him talk first.

Make the evening his

Never complain if he does not take you out to dinner or to other places of entertainment. Instead, try to understand his world of strain and pressure, his need to come home and relax.

The goal

Try to make your home a place of peace and order where your husband can renew himself in body and spirit.

The No Platforming of gab

October 29, 2018 19:13 UTC

For those that don't know, gab is an alternative social media platform in the vein of Twitter. I guess you could call it a sort of micro-blogging platform (although I think that term is out of vogue nowadays). Their motto is "Speak Freely" and they really mean it. Unless you're posting stuff that is illegal (primarily according to US law I think -- e.g. child porn, etc.), there is no censorship by gab. This of course means there exists some extremely uncomfortable and controversial stuff there (for example: Jew hating, racism, all the flavors of NSFW content, etc.), but with the muting and blocking features afforded to every user, you can filter things to your liking fairly well. You can't do that in Twitter.

When it was revealed that Robert Bowers, the Tree of Life Synagogue shooter, posted an only after the fact ominous message to gab, the media and their techno-leftist enablers pounced. They smeared gab (yet again) as an alt-right/Nazi home base of sorts and placed responsibility for the shooter's actions on gab. Setting aside the fact that pretty much every shooter, murderer, bomber, rapist, etc. in the last 6-10 years had a Twitter or Facebook account, all of gab's integral service providers -- almost in unison -- decided to drop gab as a customer. Not only was it nearly in unison (they were hours apart), but the amount of notice afforded gab made it effectively impossible for them to NOT go offline for an extended amount of time. They're offline now. Completely no platformed. They were Info Wars'd.

It's appalling what has been done to gab. It's unfair, but more importantly it's down right scary. The techno-leftist in their ivory towers of Silicon Valley have WAY too much power and are no longer afraid to brazenly exercise it. This is only going to get worse.

Here are some of the better takes on the whole situation from some of the alt-media types. Have a listen. Oh... and just because I link to someone doesn't mean I agree with everything they have ever said or will say. Damn NPCs.

THIS IS TYRANNY

May 26, 2018 15:55 UTC

I have been following Tommy Robinson for a number of years, but not very closely. I had a passing understating of what he was doing and what he was up against, but only recently did I realize just how tyrannical the police state in the UK had become. It's truly shocking. I spent a fair amount of time in the UK and have some very good friends there. I wonder how aware they are of the depths of this considering the latest UK blackout of everything Tommy Robinson.

Listen to Tommy -- in his own words -- explain what has happened to him and his family over the last several years as he's fought to speak about the Islamic problem in the UK and Europe in general. Keep in mind, this interview is being conduct by independent journalist Brittany Pettibone, who herself just experienced the UK police tactics up close and personal (it's why this interview takes place in Vienna).

OK... so you can just call Tommy a liar and discount everything relayed in that video and just assume every hit piece (like this one) ever written about him is spot on. Or assume JUST HALF of it is true. JUST HALF. JUST HALF should send shivers down the spine of anyone with even a passing appreciation for freedom.

I started looking in to Tommy Robinson a bit more over the last 24 hours because he was arrested again -- this time for the HORRIBLE DISGUSTING ABHORRENT crime of simply reporting on an Islamic grooming trial (that's the religiously motivated raping of girls and boys by Muslims). And now his arrest is being memory-holed across the internet.

The Smart One is Pro-2A

May 19, 2018 02:33 UTC

Reading the tweets of the anti-gun Parkland activists is painful. Some of them can barely put a sentence together. The smart one from that school backs the 2A and our freedoms in general -- and that is not at all a surprise.

Most leftists (not Democrats -- LEFTISTS) are just not that smart. The smarter ones are the leaders and are generally evil -- at least as far as I can tell. As the smarter ones increase their experience points, they either become fully evil or they realize the error of their ways and leave the left behind for more libertarian/conservative pastures.

POTUS - Getting Stuff Done

April 7, 2018 14:22 UTC

President Trump was not my first choice. I had serious reservations about his commitment to his new found conservative positions and the baggage I suspected he'd be carrying. To be fair, I was likely a victim of the type of false narratives that the MSM and NeverTrumpers were shoving down our throats since he won the primary, but that is just as much my fault as it is theirs. With that said, I am very happy with his performance so far especially considering the soft coup that has been in full effect since his election (coup-1, coup-2, coup-3).

What I think has struck me most, even though I don't agree with all of his moves, is that he's actually getting stuff done! From tax cuts (with which I agree) to tariffs (which I do not), the man is putting work in, sticking to his promises as best he can, and showing results. I hate that he signed the Omnibus monstrosity (Ted Cruz explains why), but there are some rumblings out there that Trump (and the GOP... ha ha... yeah right) may still be playing hardball (1974 Impoundment Act). Time will tell.

The last few days has been a brilliant example of how the Trump administration gets stuff done. They do it in quick, calculated bursts of activity to get in front of some of the narrative shaping by the media. First we have Trump signing the proclamation authorizing the National Guard to the southern border on Wednesday. On Thursday we have nearly 100 illegal aliens arrested in one of the largest ICE round ups in years (notice the headline says only "immigrants" -- narrative shaping). On Friday, POTUS signs a memo ordering an end to "Catch and Release". And finally today we have signs some states are moving on the National Guard.

Boom, boom, and boom. This will resonate with his base while further demonstrate to those would be illegals that it ain't easy anymore.

Getting. Stuff. Done.

Smartphone Addiction... pfft!

April 1, 2018 16:27 UTC

I ran across this piece today in The Guardian (blech). The author starts off by lamenting the fact that he and his family (wife and two kids) find themselves more often than not sat on the couch, each of them staring into their phones. He decides that this is bad and commits to figuring out how to fix it -- at least for himself. Instead of exerting some self-control, he decides to park his smartphone and sort of replaces it with the venerable Nokia 3310 (2017 re-release).

With his new Nokia in hand and its lack of modern distractions, he finds a whole new world where he discovers that he can concentrate on TV shows and books and EVEN HIS KIDS. Sad. This reminds me of a quote.

Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.
-- George Carlin

And that's apparently what we have today... large numbers of zombies on their phones. And it's making them stupid. Of course, with today's culture of blamelessness, it's never the individual's fault. And these large numbers of stupid people are making this blameless view of things acceptable.

  • It's not my fault I can't keep my room clean. I must have some disability.
  • It's not my fault I can't keep a job. I must have ADHD.
  • It's not my fault I'm fat. Damn you McDonald's and Starbucks' Fatty-Double-Chocolate-Triple-Sugary-Syrupy-Creamy-Frappucino-Sauage-Bacon-Bacon-Baconator
  • It's not my fault I can't be an adult, show some spine, and control my smartphone usage (including my kid's usage as well).

Geez.

California Insanity

January 19, 2018 04:52 UTC

Cali AG 

This is the California Attorney General. He effectively warned all California based businesses that if they cooperate with the Federal Government with regards to ICE deportations (he claimed "privacy") that they could be subject to legal action against them from the state. So it's now illegal in the State of California to follow federal law.

This is insanity. The leftist argued and were backed by the SCOTUS that matters of immigration are exclusive to the FEDERAL government (see Arizona). Now that that federal government is implementing the law, it's now a state issue. This is pure lawlessness and very dangerous. A state is effectively nullifying federal law. This can lead to very very bad things.

‘We will prosecute’ employers who help immigration sweeps, California AG says

Spectre and Meltdown

January 15, 2018 14:58 UTC

Spectre! Meltdown! Ahhhhhhh!

That's the reaction by the media every time they decide something should be a story. Sometimes a vulnerability or new attack vector should be huge news, but whatever "sex appeal" the media is looking for isn't there, so little coverage is given. This time it's sexy and serious. Regardless of the hype, when a new security event occurs, I always look forward to hearing what Bruce Schneier has to say about it. He's always a voice of reason in a world full of shitty soundbites and opportunistic advertising. And this time...

"Throw it away and buy a new one" is ridiculous security advice, but it's what US-CERT recommends. It is also unworkable. The problem is that there isn't anything to buy that isn't vulnerable. Pretty much every major processor made in the past 20 years is vulnerable to some flavor of these vulnerabilities. Patching against Meltdown can degrade performance by almost a third. And there's no patch for Spectre; the microprocessors have to be redesigned to prevent the attack, and that will take years.

Yeah... it is pretty serious. And Schneier sees this as a sort of Pandora's box being opened. Now that microprocessor based vulnerabilities have some attention, a focus shift will likely occur making 2018 ". . .the year of microprocessor vulnerabilities, and it's going to be a wild ride." Yay.
