Raising boys or raising Men?

I think this Lady, (please note the capitalization of that) has an idea of why young men either become useless fops, or angry bitter rebellious teens. I will only excerpt a small section here.

"We live in a society of angry young men. You see them everywhere - slouching, defiant, rebellious. Is this just a natural "stage" of development, or are we creating these malcontents?

As our sons have gotten older, my husband and I have given these questions a lot of thought. We have witnessed many friends sons grow from being sweet, fun-loving ruddy little boys into being angry, rude, disrespectful "teenagers". We have watched godly parents lose their sons in fits of rebellion, leaving mangled remnants of families to stagger onward. Is there any hope for us? Will our sweet sons be fodder for an angry world?"



And I will direct you to her blog to read the rest. She makes a very insightful point about how mothers need to step aside at times in the raising of their male offspring. And her reasons for that thought.

Also I am adding her blog to the Emergency Preparedness/Survival links section on the right as well.

Two Teen girls killed near me

I have been keeping an eye on this story but I haven't posted anything until now. Just to note, this is about 15 miles from my house.

"PORTLAND — Two teen women were found shot in the head about 25 yards beneath a scenic overlook deck at Violet Andrews Park about 9 a.m. Saturday by a couple visiting the park, police said.

Mollie Judith Olgin, 19, raised in Ingleside and living in Flour Bluff, was dead, said Police Chief Randy Wright. Olgin’s vehicle was found near the crime scene, he said."


That was the first story about this heinous crime.

Then we find out some more information.

"PORTLAND — There is no evidence that the shooting of two teens last weekend had anything to do with their romantic relationship, Portland Police Chief Randy Wright said Tuesday.

News organizations have brought nationwide attention to the shooting of two women at a Portland park late Friday, emphasizing their relationship. Many have questioned if the teens were shot as a hate crime."


Now we have the automatic assumption by some that this is a hate crime based upon the sexual orientation of the victims.

So of course we then get various special interest organizations involved.

"PORTLAND — Organizations from California to Washington D.C. planned vigils in the memory of two teenagers found shot in a Portland park.

A call to honor the girls, one who survived and the other who died, went out on Facebook earlier this week.

On Monday, lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender civil rights activist and founder of the AIDS Memorial Quilt, Cleve Jones, posted a plea for the nation to get involved by hosting vigils."


Nationwide candle light vigils...... what about other crime victims?

"ARANSAS PASS — Hours after a fisherman discovered the body of a young girl Thursday, authorities identified her as a 16-year-old missing since Monday.

Jenna Hernandez, 16, of Aransas Pass was found Thursday about 9 a.m. by a fisherman visiting from San Antonio, police said."


Where is the candle light vigil for her? This happened only 6 miles from my house. Where is all the outrage for her? Where is all the support for her family? Where is the manufactured outrage for the the rest of the ordinary people who are murdered? Ohhh, I see they aren't special enough, unless they belong to a select group of people. What hypocrisy. There should be outrage for anyone who is murdered. However for certain groups, it doesn't fit the agenda.

Well I'll start taking those groups seriously when they start acknowledging that ANY murder of ANY person is heinous. To have their "Candle Light Vigil" only for persons who meet their criteria is the same as waving a flag soaked in the blood of a martyr is for terrorists.

Oh and a description of the suspect in the Portland shooting/murder has been released.

"CORPUS CHRISTI — Portland police released a description of a suspect Thursday in the weekend shootings of two teenage girls who are being mourned in vigils this week across the country.

An eyewitness described the suspect as a white male in his 20s with dark hair standing 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighing about 140 pounds."


Once again the police say they do not believe that the girls sexual orientation was a factor in their shooting. Try telling that to certain organizations, looking for their "Martyrs".

Missing posts.

I'm pretty sure those posts are gone now. I"m not entirely certain but what I believe happened is this.

Blogger/Google upgraded me to the new template/interface, it took several posts that I had published and put them back in draft. I delete my draft posts every month as I just use draft for a notepad you might say. So I deleted the posts that I had written, after they were snafued into the draft section.

That is all I am going to say on this matter other than if that is truly what happened I need to kick myself for not checking the draft posts before I deleted them. In my own defense however, I have never had this situation occur before.

Oh bother

with the issues of posts of mine disappearing I just went and changed passwords for 6 of my accounts. Now as long as I don't lose the post it note on my monitor until those passwords become ingrained, I'll be fine.

It is official

About 20 of my posts are GONE, MISSING, NOT HERE.  most of them were rather critical of the Government, in particular they were critical of the President.  And they are no longer on my blog.  They are not in the Draft section, they are not in the scheduled section, they are not anywhere.  I have been trying to find a cached version of my blog from february or march.  I think what happened is when blogger rolled out it's new version many posts got mangled. And of course the archive.org server has been down any time I try to access the cached version of my blog.  It says there is one from april 30th, but all day I can't get to it or any cached version of my blog.

What really chaps my but is the posts I want to see have links in them to the misdoing of the current resident to 1600 Pennsylvania and his henchmen/women.  and it is for the most part only those posts.

Has anyone else lost any posts?  Or am I imagining/hearing things?

Delegitimizing the Supreme Court

I have posted twice before about Obummer and his cronies attacking members of SCOTUS.  First it was Justice Thomas, then it was Justice Roberts.  (I had a post on it, but for some reason after going through 5 years of my blog it is not there)  Then there is Obummer making his own edicts. Now all his attacks against the members of SCOTUS have a reason.


"OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — President Barack Obama's campaign has recruited a legion of lawyers to be on standby for this year's election as legal disputes surrounding the voting process escalate.


Thousands of attorneys and support staffers have agreed to aid in the effort, providing a mass of legal support that appears to be unrivaled by Republicans or precedent. Obama's campaign says it is particularly concerned about the implementation of new voter ID laws across the country, the possibility of anti-fraud activists challenging legitimate voters and the handling of voter registrations in the most competitive states."

If Obummer has delegitimized the SCOTUS, he can make spurious arguments to have several Justices recused.  If that happens, He wins.  Got that?  If he can further delegitimize the conservative Justices of the court, he can steal the november election.

Women in Combat Arms

Stormbringer has it:

"This was inevitable - the Department of the Army is seriously considering allowing women to attend Ranger School.

Anybody who has ever attended that hellhole will know this is beyond a bad idea, this is insane.

The hero named Grim over at BlackFive has a great analysis of this PC-gone crazy:

A better argument: women are structurally at least four times as likely to be seriously injured in this kind of intense physical training, and possibly -- if the British army's experience is telling -- as much as eight times as likely.
This leaves three options for implementation, all of them bad."



I don't want anyone to think I'm bashing female soldiers, I am not, but except for a small minority of women, there is NO WAY they can meet the same physical standards as male soldiers. That is a certifiable incontrovertible FACT. Not a guess not a conjecture a FACT. And for the current administration to try to force this on the armed forces shows me that they are more concerned with "Looking Good" than in actually doing their jobs.

I hope they put the perps in general population

"For nine years the FBI and National Center for Missing & Exploited Children have partnered on what’s called the Innocence Lost National Initiative, during which law-enforcement agents combing truck stops and websites for kids working sex trade have “recovered” (their word) some 2,200 children. To that total add another 79, per today’s announcement — six of whom were in Dallas."

Prison inmates REALLLLLLLYYYYY don't like people who hurt or molest kids. So I hope the pimps and their associates all get put in general population.

Ohhh what an idiot

This recently happened in my neck of the woods.

A guy wanted to get off work early, so he called in a bomb threat. One leetle problem, he works at a refinery.

"CORPUS CHRISTI — A 26-year-old Robstown man pleaded guilty Monday to enticing another man to make hoax bomb threats to a Corpus Christi refinery.

During a hearing in federal court, Luna admitted he convinced his cousin to make several calls Oct. 25 and Oct. 28 to the Valero Refinery claiming there was a bomb on the property."


Uuhhmmm I thought any type of threat against our infrastructure, such as a refinery, is considered as a terrorism threat. I hope he like prison.....

Immigration Dissent

To go along with Obummer's "Targeted Assassinations" he also has a problem with his immigration policy and his instructions to the prosecutors.

"In a stinging, 22-page dissent to Monday's decision striking down most of Arizona's tough anti-illegal immigration law, Justice Antonin Scalia criticized President Barack Obama's announcement earlier this month that he would stay the deportation of young illegal immigrants and suggested that the federal government does not want to enforce its immigration laws.

"The president said at a news conference that the new program is 'the right thing to do' in light of Congress's failure to pass the administra­tion's proposed revision of the Immigration Act," Scalia, a Reagan appointee, wrote in his dissent. "Perhaps it is, though Arizona may not think so. But to say, as the Court does, that Arizona contradicts federal law by enforc­ing applications of the Immigration Act that the President declines to enforce boggles the mind."

Scalia went on to write:

Arizona bears the brunt of the country's illegal immigration problem. Its citizens feel themselves under siege by large numbers of illegal immigrants who invade their property, strain their social services, and even place their lives in jeopardy. Federal officials have been unable to remedy the problem,and indeed have recently shown that they are unwilling to do so. Thousands of Arizona's estimated 400,000 illegal immigrants—including not just children but men and women under 30—are now assured immunity from en­forcement, and will be able to compete openly with Ari­zona citizens for employment.

Scalia also repeatedly referenced Obama's policy of prosecutorial discretion, which directs Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents to prioritize deporting the illegal immigrants who are frequent border crossers, have committed crimes, or recently entered the country illegally. The Obama administration has deported a record number of illegal immigrants, but its prosecutorial discretion policy still draws the ire of illegal immigration hawks.

Scalia directly referred to Obama's immigration enforcement policy as "lax" at one point."


Click the above to RTWT

It really is telling, just how idiotic Obummer's immigration policies are, when a Supreme Court Justice calls him out on it.

You know it's bad when Jimmy Carter is calling you out.

Former President Jimmy Carter, is calling out the Obama Administration on it's use of drones for targeted attacks.

"A former U.S. president is accusing the current president of sanctioning the "widespread abuse of human rights" by authorizing drone strikes to kill suspected terrorists.


Jimmy Carter, America's 39 th president, denounced the Obama administration for "clearly violating" 10 of the 30 articles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, writing in a New York Times op-ed on Monday that the "United States is abandoning its role as the global champion of human rights."

When good Ol boy Jimmah starts calling you out for your abuses of targeted drone strikes ie: assassinations, you know you dun goofed. Add to the reports of "The One" watching all of the video from the strikes, it leads me to believe Obummer gets off on the power he has in authorizing the strikes.

Just what we need a narcissistic, egotistical wannabe with the power of life and death running the show.

Something to feel strong about- From my inbox




 
Yes, I do feel strongly about this.



No one has been able to explain to me why young men and women serve in the
U.S. Military for 20 years, risking their lives protecting freedom, and only get
50% of their pay on retirement. While Politicians hold their political positions
in the safe confines of the capital, protected by these same men and women, and
receive full-pay retirement after serving one term. It just does not make any sense.





If each person who receives this will forward it on to 20 people, in three days,
most people in The United States of America will have the message. This is
one proposal that really should be passed around. 

Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution: "Congress shall
make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply
equally to the Senators and/or Representatives; and, Congress shall make no law
that applies to the Senators and/or Representatives that does not apply equally to
the citizens of the United States ."

You are one of my 20+. I passed it on, will you?

"If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice," and these brave soldiers have given you that right!!

Fast and Furious Pod Cast

David Kopel from The Volokh Conspiracy has done a 47 minute podcast about the history of Operation fast and Furious. I've tried twice to listen to it through Firefox and it crashed Firefox both times. So now I'm downloading it to listen to it off line. It is a 22 MB MP3 File and if you want to d/l it your self the link is: http://audio.ivoices.org/mp3/iipodcast551.mp3


I think you should give it a listen. To save it to your computer right click the links and choose Save As, then decide where you want to save it. Mine is on my desktop and I'm cuing it up right now

Bill Whittle on Fast and Furious



I think he hits the nail on the head.

This reminded me of a book

in particular a certain statement by a certain character. The book is part of The Vorkosigan Saga, written by Lois McMaster Bujold. If I am remembering correctly the quote is by the Komarran who Emperor Gregor has his eyes on where she discusses how people want to "Eat their seed corn" when it comes to taking taxes out of the planet Komarr. If I could remember exactly the quote I would link you to the book at Amazon, but my brain has failed me. However back to the article I read. It discusses some issues with our current economic situation.

I will excerpt just a little bit, then direct you to the original article.

"I have frequently admitted to being simple minded. While the world's economic and financial systems are enormously complicated, it seems to me that the bottom line is not complicated at all. Governments, like private corporations and individuals, have assets and liabilities. When the first is larger than the second, the question is what to do with the surplus. When the second is larger than the first, one must do one or more than one of three things: somehow increase assets and/or diminish liabilities, or default (or declare bankruptcy), or borrow the difference.

The last is the least painful in the short run, though it means increasing liabilities over the long run. That requires that there is someone you can borrow from right now. That in turn means that someone has to be running a big enough surplus to cover your shortfall. The current world crisis seems to be the result of a simple mathematical fact: there is simply not enough surplus in the world economy to cover all of the world's debts."

I strongly suggest you click the above and read the whole thing.

More back door Government Regs to limit the Second Amendment

Over at the Volokh Conspiracy David Kopel has the story of OSHA citing a Gun Store/Range for so-called "violations", such as:

"A gun range instructor conducting shooter instruction was observed reaching down on the range floor to collect a loaded handgun cartridge. The employee was not wearing any hand protection such as gloves. The gun range floor was contaminated with lead. The gun had misfired and it required manual cycling of the barrel slide to remove the defective round which then fell on the gun range floor."


Uhhh, that is what you are supposed to do. If you clear a misfire you pick up the live cartridge from the ground. Uhh Common Sense...... Ohh that's right this is the GOVERNMENT......... Anyway go click the click above or below and RTWT, you really really need to know this stuff.

The Omelet I created

has some other fans.  Many years ago I created the 5 egg, Ham and Cheese Omelet.  I originally ordered it at the Denny's restaurant on Natural Bridge Road across from Lambert Airport.  I could only get it at night when the manager wasn't in.Now for the third time, the IHOP in Corpus Christi has made it for me, and this time the person who was with me ordered it as well, and then the gentleman sitting over in the next booth asked for it as well.  Heck if this keeps going, it might become a regular menu item.

A 5 Egg, Ham and Cheese Omelet is simply a 2 egg Ham and Cheese Omelet, that is folded into a 3 Egg Ham and Cheese Omelet.  The extra melted cheese goodness when you cut into it with your fork and the texture of the eggs, hmmmm I'm making myself hungry again just thinking about it.

So try it sometime.  If you aren't a large person like me, you can always share it your friend or sweetheart.

Me?  I eat the whole thing by myself, plus a shortstack of buttermilk pancakes, crisp hashbrowns and wheat toast with strawberry jam.

The best thing about it though, is that IHOP, could have charged me for 2 omelets, instead they just charged me for 2 extra eggs.  I will DEFINITELY be going back there to get it again.  And IHOP, if you DO decide to make this a regular menu Item, could you kinda name it for me?  The Grey Locke 5 Egg Ham and Cheese Omelet, or Mark's 5 Egg Omelet, or The Texas Fellowship 5 Egg Omelet or something like that.

k'tanx Bai!!

32 Month Report Card - Please pass this on to everyone on your email...-From the inbox


 
Thank God someone had the background, intelligence, and determination to put this together. This took an enormous amount of work.  Please remember that we hold a great deal of power...we can vote.              Please take the time to read this.
                                Barack Obama's 32 Month Report Card
                                                by Rich Carroll
"Mr. Hope and Change" wants to create a nation humbled; humiliated, casting-aside capitalism and individual freedoms for one where we the people are government controlled. This would be a system that genuflects mediocrity, steals personal aspiration and opportunity, and punishes those who strive to succeed.
A gallon of regular gasoline the day Obama was inaugurated was $1.79 on average in the U.S. Today that price is $3.59, a 100.6% increase. The number of food stamp recipients has risen since Obama took office from 31,983,716 to 43,200,878, a 35.1% jump. Long term unemployment soared 146.2% during the same 32 month period from 2,600,000 to 6,400,000. Staggering hope and change isn't it?
American citizens living in poverty have risen 9.5% from 39,800,000 to 43,600,000, and the number of unemployed has jumped almost 25% from 11,616,000 to 14,485,000 as of August 31, 2011. The number of unemployed blacks has risen from 12.6% at the end of George Bush's term to 15.8% today, a 25.4% increase, and finally, our national debt is up 34.4% from 10.627 trillion to 14,278 trillion *
Keep these figures in mind as we recount the number of firsts for this presidency:
First President to refuse to show a valid birth certificate.
First President to apply for college aid as a foreign student, then deny he was a foreigner.
First President to have a social security number from a state he has never lived in.
First President to preside over a cut to the credit rating of the United States .
First President to violate the War Powers Act.
First President to be held in contempt of court for illegally obstructing oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico .
First President to defy a Federal Judges court order to cease implementing the Health Care Reform Law.
First President to require all Americans to purchase a product from a third party.
First President to spend a trillion dollars on shovel-ready jobs and later admit there was no such thing as shovel-ready jobs.
First President to abrogate bankruptcy law to turn over control of companies to his union supporters.
First President to by-pass Congress and implement the Dream Act through executive fiat.
First President to order a secret amnesty program that stopped the deportation of illegal immigrants across the U.S. , including those with criminal convictions.
First President to demand a company hand-over $20 billion to one of his political appointees.
First President to terminate Americas ability to put a man in space.
First President to encourage racial discrimination and intimidation at polling places.
First President to have a law signed by an auto-pen without being present.
First President to arbitrarily declare an existing law unconstitutional and refuse to enforce it.
First President to threaten insurance companies if they publicly speak-out on the reasons for their rate increases.
First President to tell a major manufacturing company in which state they are allowed to locate a factory.
First President to file lawsuits against the states he swore an oath to protect (AZ, WI, OH, IN)
First President to withdraw an existing coal permit that had been properly issued years ago.
First President to fire an inspector general of Ameri-corps for catching one of his friends in a corruption case.
First President to appoint 45 Czars to replace elected officials in his office.
First President to golf 73 separate times in his first two and a half years in office.
First President to hide his medical, educational and travel records.
First President to win a Nobel Peace Prize for doing NOTHING to earn it.
First President to coddle American enemies while alienating Americas allies.
First President to publicly bow to Americas enemies while refusing to salute the U.S. Flag.
First President to go on multiple global apology tours.
First President to go on 17 lavish vacations, including date nights and Wednesday evening White House parties for his friends, paid for by the taxpayer.
First President to refuse to wear the U.S. Flag lapel pin.
First President to have 22 personal servants (taxpayer funded) for his wife.
First President to keep a dog trainer on retainer for $102,000.00 a year at taxpayer expense.
First President to repeat the Holy Qur'an tells us, and openly admit the early morning call of the Azan (Islamic call to worship) is the most beautiful sound on earth.
Remember that 32 months of Obama White House we the people have accumulated national debt at a rate more than 27 times as fast as during the rest of our nation's entire history, as the Obama's plan their next extravagant vacation to the Indonesian Island nation of Bali .
Hope and change anyone ?????????

Strong Winds of change - From my inbox

Winds of Change....

Warren Buffet is asking each addressee to forward this email to a minimum of twenty people on their address list; in turn ask each of those to do likewise.

In three days, most of the people in The United States of America will have the message.This is one idea that really should be passed around.

*Congressional Reform Act of 2012*_

1. A Congressman/woman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they're out of office.

2. Congress (past, present & future) participates in Social Security.
All funds in the Congressional retirement fund move to the Social Security system immediately. All future funds flow into the Social Security system, and Congress participates with the American people. It may not be used for any other purpose.

3. Congress can purchase their own retirement plan, just as all Americans do.

4. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise. Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.

5. Congress loses their current health care system and participates in the same health care system as the American people.

6. Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the American people.

7. All contracts with past and present Congressmen/women are void effective 12/31/12. The American people did not make this contract with Congressmen/women. Congressmen/women made all these contracts for themselves. Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, so ours should serve their term(s), then go home and back to work.

If each person contacts a minimum of twenty people then it will only take three days for most people (in the U.S. ) to receive the message. Don't you think it's time?

THIS IS HOW YOU FIX CONGRESS!

The Department of Homeland Security allows it's political masters biases to color a report that could be very instrumental in keeping this nation safe.

"In an era of agenda-driven academic research, who watches the watchers? Or more accurately, who gets to designate and categorize the “objective” data? This is the question raised after examining a study and related dataset recently published by the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism (START) at the University of Maryland.
START was launched in 2005 with a $12 million grant from the Department of Homeland Security, and is recognized by DHS as one of its “Centers for Excellence.” In December, DHS announced it had renewed START’s funding to the tune of $3.6 million.
A recent START study titled “Hot Spots of Terrorism and Other Crimes in the United States, 1970 to 2008” puts the “excellence” description in question. A press release announcing the report states the study concluded that nearly a third of all terrorist attacks between 1970 and 2008 occurred in just five major metropolitan areas. The study was based on a START database called “Profiles of Perpetrators of Terrorism in the United States,” and both the report and database are supported by the DHS Science and Technology Directorate’s Human Factors/Behavioral Sciences Division.

No mention of KNOWN terrorist attacks?  Read this little excerpt.

"Compare how the START researchers define “left wing” and “right wing” extremism. Left-wing extremism is defined at follows:
Extreme left-wing groups want to bring about change through violent revolution rather than through established political processes. In addition, this category includes secular left-wing groups that rely heavily on terrorism to overthrow the capitalist system and either establish “a dictatorship of the proletariat” (Marxist-Leninists) or, much more rarely, a decentralized, non-hierarchical sociopolitical system (anarchists).
Fair enough. Now, right-wing extremism:
The extreme far-right is composed of groups that believe that one’s personal and/or national “way of life” is under attack and is either already lost or that the threat is imminent (for some the threat is from a specific ethnic, racial, or religious group), and believe in the need to be prepared for an attack either by participating in paramilitary preparations and training or survivalism. Groups may also be fiercely nationalistic (as opposed to universal and international in orientation), anti-global, suspicious of centralized federal authority, reverent of individual liberty, and believe in conspiracy theories that involve grave threat to national sovereignty and/or personal liberty. (Emphasis added)
If you’re fiercely nationalistic (pro-American), anti-global (anti-UN), suspicious of centralized federal authority (like the Framers), reverent of individual liberty (like Patrick Henry), and believe in “conspiracy” theories (like the federal government allowing the sale of assault weapons to Mexican drug cartels to justify limiting American’s rights under the Second Amendment, a la Fast and Furious), then according to these taxpayer-funded researchers, you too are on the “extreme right-wing.” Many Americans would be surprised to find themselves so categorized by the researchers at START.
It should be no surprise that two subgroups identified in the codebook under “extreme right-wing” include “gun rights” and “tax protest.” Tea Party terrorists, anyone?
Again, this raises the question: who gets to categorize the data?"

I've got a really novel and unique Idea.......  How about you guys concern with people who have said out loud on worldwide broadcast over the airwaves and the internet, that they intend to "Destroy" America.  You know the Islamic Radicalists?  People such as Hamas, Al Qaeda, Iran you know ADMITTED TERRORISTS!  Oh, I'm sorry..  You call them freedom fighters or fighters against the oppression of the Imperialistic Western Hegemony. 

Listen up IDIOTS!  Get your Rectal Cranial Inversion cured and open your eyes to what reality actually IS.  This isn't the time to define the "Is" as Former President William Jefferson Clinton did.  We KNOW the definition of Terrorist, quit trying to change it to fit your biased and politicized ends.

IDIOTS!

QOTD: Tam

"Eric Holder announced that he was shocked, shocked! to find that there were leaks of classified information from the Obama administration, and he would investigate it immediately. I have no idea how the newscaster read that line with a straight face; this is like expecting the minister for Reich security in 1940s Germany to investigate the mysterious disappearance of Jews."

The Man Rules

This has been floating around for years.  I can't remember where I got it from originally

The Man Rules


At last a guy has taken the time to write this all down.


Finally, the guys’ side of the story (I must admit, it’s pretty good).


We always hear ‘the rules’ from the female side ..


Now here are the rules from the male side.


Please note.. these are all numbered “1″ ON PURPOSE!


1. Men are NOT mind readers.


1. Learn to work the toilet seat.
You’re a big girl. If it’s up, put it down.
We need it up, you need it down.
You don’t hear us complaining about you leaving it down.


1. Sunday is for Sports!
It’s like the full moon or the changing of the tides. Let it be.


1. Crying is blackmail.


1. Ask for what you want.
Let us be clear on this one:
Subtle hints do not work!
Strong hints do not work!
Obvious hints do not work!
Just say it!


1. Yes and No are perfectly acceptable answers to almost every question.


1. Come to us with a problem only if you want help solving it. That’s what we do.  Sympathy is what your girlfriends are for.


1. Anything we said 6 months ago is inadmissible in an argument.
In fact, all comments become Null and Void after 7 Days.


1. If you think you’re fat, you probably are.  Don’t ask us.


1. If something we said can be interpreted two ways and one of the ways makes you sad or angry, we meant the other one


1. You can either ask us to do something OR tell us how you want it done.
Not both.  If you already know best how to do it, just do it yourself.


1. Whenever possible, PLEASE say whatever you have to say during commercials.


1. Christopher Columbus did NOT need directions and neither do we.


1. ALL men see in only 16 colors, like Windows default settings.
Peach, for example, is a fruit, not A color.
Pumpkin is also a fruit.
We have no idea what mauve is.


1. If it itches, it will be scratched..
We do that.


1. If we ask what is wrong and you say “nothing”, we will act like nothing’s wrong.  We know you are lying, but it is just not worth the hassle.


1. If you ask a question you don’t want an answer to, expect an answer you don’t want to hear.

1. Don’t ask us what we’re thinking about unless you are prepared to discuss such topics as baseball or motor sports.


1. You have enough clothes.

Yes, I know, I have to sleep on the couch tonight;


But did you know men really don’t mind that? It’s like camping.
