    Women are genetically programmed to have THEIR OWN best interests in mind. Always.

    As opposed to men who are programmed only to consider the best interests of others? Puhlease!

    Men have no choice. They are genetically designed to expand their best interest to include a mate and children. That is their purpose in any species that forms a pair bond.

    If they didn't, there would be zero incentive to stay with a woman after coitus. None. What men experience as love is a true desire to provide for and nurture. It's the same love that women experience towards their children.

    However what women experience as love towards a male is NOT the same. A woman experiences love as a feeling of surrender based on the male's ability to provide for her. She will then use psychological and physical (sex) manipulation to solidify her position and limit her mate's other opportunities. Men who don't understand this fact become victims and often tolerate horrible abuse at an age when they have accumulated significant earning power and are becoming most attractive to other women. (usually after 40)

    It's a complex game but entirely tied to biology and environment.

    They've been living at home with Mom and Dad having to have a healthy dose of reality crammed down their throats. I think at this point these kids want a real job that can pay them real wages, and more importantly buy them their independence. Where they would be free to have Liberal fantastical ideas, but be left up to their self reliance to make those a reality or a flop.

    $20 bucks here and there every day is getting harder and harder to pull out of Mom and Dad, as their finances are squeezed. They aren't propping up these kids idealistic lifestyles, where they just want to ride their bike and chill. Which is code for go over to so and so's house with a 12 pack of beer and a grams of weed. now they are bored out of their skull and are waking up.

    Those republicans aren't that bad, they want the same thing that they do. And that is that kids over 18 get a job or go to school with out bankrupting their lives, and moving out of their parents house and living a productive life.

    Nothing wrong with that is there Dan?

    Just try to keep the various forms of credit distinct from each other or your manifesto becomes unreadable.

    Reagan fucked up so many things it's impossible to hate that motherfucker anywhere near as much as he deserves. What Clinton repaired of the government budget (ironically by continuing in Reaganesque style) Bush threw down the shithole. I hate Republican presidents post Eisenhower. Their bodies should be dug up, shit on and fed to diseased dogs. All the while Greenspan avowed that destroying manufacturing jobs upon the altar of globalization, deregulation, and free market religious dogma, would all be compensated by lower junk food prices and cheap Chinese crap. What Reagan did to the unions, Clinton did to them with NAFTA. The FIRE sector became the driver of GDP as we fistfucked our manufacturing base and pissed away our trade and budget surplus. In order to keep milking what we had turned our labor base into (short-sighted consumers, instead of skilled workers) consumer credit had to make up the difference. You've got at least three types of credit going on here, and the various entities that issue them have only one thing in common now: keeping the shitshow from grinding to a halt.

    ISN'T this the meaning and purpose of America? That one fucking guy would own everything and everyone and conquer the known universe and exploit everyone and every asset in it for his personal pleasure and profit and skull fuck the universe?

    Why does everyone hate Freedom all of a sudden?

    Companies only hire if there is demand for their products which comes from the bottom up

    False. Companies do R&D all the time, with no customers, and give people new things they never knew they needed/wanted. Google. Facebook. Cellphones. Coffee Chocolate beer from my friend Tony. Demand comes because people like what the inventors made and ask for more. Jobs come because of that. No Larry Page and no Sergey Brin = far fewer jobs in the world today. This is why they are billionaires. They FOUND the demand and built a product that catered to it.

    but morally, he did nothing right.

    What is immoral about an adult man of any age wanting to have consensual sex with an adult woman of any age? Or, for that matter, vice-versa. Icky does not equal immoral.

    1. Ayn Rand was a sociopath and a very stupid woman.
    2. People who follow Ayn Rand are economically illiterate.
    3. The concept of Atlas shrugging, which is Randian bullshit for "I'm gonna take my ball and go home", is ridiculous in general and even more absurd in this specific case. Should an American corporation decide to do this because they were unable to profitably offshore their headquarters, a domestic company would instantly move into that market space and provide the same product.

    BayAreaObserver says

    9. You’re never too old to get divorced - Freed by social mores and encouraged by financial independence, aging boomers seem particularly likely to get divorced. The rate of divorce doubled among adults aged over 50 between 1990 and 2010, according to “The Gray Divorce Revolution,” a study carried out by Susan Brown and I-Fen Lin at Bowling Green State University.

    That's the one I never understood, if you stuck with them through raising kids and sending through college, then just get a divorce after there's no point. It makes no sense and is a very selfish thing to do to your kids who at that point are trying to establish their adult lives. They are now pulled into their parents self imposed hardships.

    Almost every time without fail, they end up having to sell their house because the wife can win it in court but she can't afford the upkeep. So for them they think the only sensible thing to do is to sell it. Usually the sale is just barely enough to cover the first, second or third mortgages and both walk away without anything. Both go from dual income to single income and their quality of life drastically reduces. By time they are in their late 60's it become evident that their kids will have to sponsor the financial needs of at least one of the parents.

    I want to kick their asses every time I hear about some couple married for over 25 years, filing for a divorce. Split up and sleep in different rooms, and let each other live independent lives if you have to. But don't go fucking up your kids lives because you have some fantasy that in your late 50's or 60's you can have some new independent life and take on new romantic conquests. Because none of those never pan out as well.

    "A shattering new study by two political science professors has found that ordinary Americans have virtually no impact whatsoever on the making of national policy in our country. The analysts found that rich individuals and business-controlled interest groups largely shape policy outcomes in the United States"
    "The analysts found that when controlling for the power of economic elites and organized interest groups, the influence of ordinary Americans registers at a "non-significant, near-zero level." The analysts further discovered that rich individuals and business-dominated interest groups dominate the policymaking process. The mass-based interest groups had minimal influence compared to the business-based interest groups."

    Direct consequence of QE and bailouts. When you bail out the rich, the rich become richer.

    The more productive a people are, the more deadbeats they can support. When enough deadbeats arrive, and vote themselves a right to other people's money, you have a blue state.
    So yah, most productive, and most hopelessly blue. At least that's what I see here in California. Everyone with a good job runs around working constantly. People have side jobs and small businesses alongside their regular jobs. Everyone is so caught up in the rat race, trying to get ahead of the increasingly progressive tax code while the rest of them sit back drinking Heineken and Tecate and collecting their free money. Seen both sides. Blue states depend on hard workers who in turn don't get a vote.

    zzyzzx said: Still no response from liberals on how Democrats support bloated payrolls at the post office for a 6 day delivery schedule...
    Around here the USPS make deliveries seven days a week. And they'll also drop off your groceries... Why do you hate innovation? This is not your fathers postal service.
    The USPS also has an exclusive contract with Amazon for Sunday shipping in about two dozen U.S. cities, a service expected to expand to new markets in the coming months....The 60-day grocery-delivery test started in early August, according to the Postal Service, and is limited to the San Francisco area...A spokeswoman said the USPS is making the drop-offs between 3 a.m. and 7 a.m.; few of its trucks are in use at those hours.
