I don't know if I count as a civil servant, but have had to attend these things. I'd rather get paid to do my job. A half day/whole day seminar/workshop on CRT is enough to make you go stab your ears with a pencil. After one of those it felt as though my brain had been popped out of my head; the feeling of freedom afterwards was enlightening though -- thank God for the simple things: a sunny day, a child's smile, getting to finally leave a CRT seminar.

It's a hustle; I'm glad to see the grifters out of work for a change.

I honestly think that modern society has got both men and women depressed, and modern society has really sold both men and women the idea that you are not responsible for your own choices/happiness.

I've noticed with a lot of the young girls (my younger daughter included) that there is almost a fetishization of the "I'm sorry" -- little girly, mopey, constantly depressed and awkward and "humble", let me talk down about myself thing. It's very passive aggressive. I've told my kid if she kept it up I was going to spank her. I will not have that horse shit going on in my house. I remember when my older kids were going to school and all the boys had to act like they were on that "Jackass" show and the girls all had to be promiscuous little bitches -- that was the "cool" thing to be...and I had to threaten to spank them too. One of my middle kids? It was "mindfulness", aka. grooming them to be soiboys and girls -- aka. preachy little knowitalls. You can guess what my response was (one boy lived for 2 years with a bar of soap in his mouth -- he can probably still taste Dial).

The OP is correct, and it goes for both genders (no, I don't believe in more than 2, I'm a bigot). And it does point to how to get oneself a bit more happy -- or at least not so depressed. It comes down to taking charge of your life...and not bending a knee to what society sells...which is hard, I know. Don't give up, don't give in!

Wow...

But not surprising. This is the way leftists talk about every racial/ethnic group when they think it's safe to do so -- I've been to their cocktail parties and get togethers; I've worked in academia. They've always been bigoted as shit. I can remember having to listen to a huddle of them cracking Italian "jokes". The "jokes" sounded a lot like this. Big old surprise when they found out that I was of Italian extraction, and even then they were offensive: "oh, well, you don't look Italian"...one, my mom was a bit mixed so you know...'Merica; two, just what exactly is an Italian supposed to look like motherfuckers? And it's ok to say such things and giggle when you think you're in the clear? You, who scream about equality and racism all the time? Fucking hypocrite douchbags, that's what they are.

  1. She's from Germany -- a lot of Germans are so NPC brainwashed as to be frightening; have you seen any of their press...since forever (but in the last 2 decades it's gotten really bad)
  2. She's from Berlin -- or as they used to call it "Red Berlin" -- not saying that all Berliners are leftists, but that's like the epicenter of German progressive socialism since forever (although I think Hamburg might give Berlin a close race)
  3. She's likely in her 20s -- so that age group is in the grips of progressive socialism; just look at the U.S.

She probably has issues with control and open-mindedness, just from reading that. Probably a bit too high strung and demanding...learn to relax and accept people darlin'; you'll be happier, and finding a special somebody will become easier.

This is a good example of some of the ridiculous bullshit going on in our country. Cancel culture is cancer. The 1st Amendment is a glorious thing. We should remember our rights as well as our responsibility to uphold and protect those rights.

PS. female college/public school instructor (or I was before the coof, now I stay home and homeschool), who always took it as a point of pride that in over 25 years on the job my students never really guessed my political/ideological leanings, only that class would be cancelled on election days

With all the potential shit that could come out about Prince Andrew/Epstein and Great Britain's role in spying on our President, I'd be telling yacht girl to shut the hell up too.

I think Biden was trying to compare himself by acting "Patton-esque" (at least in his own febrile, plagiarizing mind)...massive and obnoxious fail.

Oh no...I started a sentence with a coordinating conjunction (which is perfectly acceptable by the way, and historically valid). And it was a paragraph, hardly a "wall of text". But, whatever you wish.

They could; I don't see them doing it -- but R v W isn't that vague. I could see them ruling on the original decision and perhaps overturning PP v. Casey. And that right there would be enough to cause plenty of liberal tears.

We cannot disagree on Church teachings, but those are not the same as what a Pope says from time to time. It is only at times when authentic magisterium is in play that we have submission of the will/intellect, but yeah, while the Pope is to be listened to, respected, and followed...if he's just saying day to day things that do not concern Church teachings or morals, that isn't speaking with authentic magisterium, we do not have to agree with it. And...if the Pope ever said anything in contrary to the faith, then we do not have to agree with that because faith supersedes. We can never disregard the Sacred Tradition or teachings of the Church...even if a Pope should tell us to do so, it would have to be met with at least some questioning.

I'm cool with it. Is she perfect? No. Is anybody? No. She's a damn sight better than who she's replacing, and she's young (for a SCOTUS pick), so she'll be around a while.

And I'm not sure it would be a good idea for the left to keep kicking the Catholic hornet's nest -- which they've been poking for a while now.

There are other Catholics in SCOTUs, and plenty of good Catholics who don't agree with everything the Pope (or any other Pope) does -- some are even priests! We're basically only in agreement on the importance of our sacraments (and there's some bad Catholics that don't even uphold those...cough, Joe, cough, Nancy, cough). Everything else we've been known to really argue about.

And I'm going to go with the line that Patton would have called Joe something worse than a bastard. A couple of my uncles served under Patton; Joe is not the late general...so Joe can eat a big ol' can of stfu.

She's been hinting around about that for a while now; almost since the day she married Harry -- a reason why she kept her U.S. citizenship after marrying a Brit royal.

Nope!

But Patton wouldn't have said this. And he would have hated Biden's guts for attempting this bullshit. One, because Patton would have hated anyone calling troops in general something like that; two, especially a pussy ass chump motherfucker like Biden.
