Quote of the week: “The sheep chooses to be frugal. The lion chooses to make more money.”

Sentence(s) of the week: “Well Kirsty, the reason I’m interested in politics is for much the same reason that farmers are interested in wolves and locusts. I feel my property and years of painful toil slip away every time I hear an elected official open his or her mouth. And those are the politicians I like.”

The culture of “blame someone else” has to end.

Hehe… The side hug. I made the mistake of a sidehug at the end of my most recent date. I planned on a front hug but when the moment came automatically did an obtuse angle side-hug. I cursed myself out for my betaness on the way home. It’s something I need to work on.

Neo-conservatism is leftism for uncool people. I disagree with his assertion that Beck should advocate creating an alternative; while an alternative is good, the state will simply make state-regulated common-law relationships mandatory for anybody living conjugally  (as it has here in Canada), so it’s accomplishing nothing but kicking the can down the road.

  1. “I disagree with his assertion that Beck should advocate creating an alternative; while an alternative is good, the state will simply make state-regulated common-law relationships mandatory for anybody living conjugally (as it has here in Canada), so it’s accomplishing nothing but kicking the can down the road.”

    Marital law has wavered between being subject church review and state review. When one institution becomes too stringent or loose, the other institution takes over. This has been the general historical trend. “The God of the Machine” does a good job of explaining why this is the case.

    At this time, my guess is people in default common law marriages in Canada don’t tend to use the state as their apparatus for airing out marital grievances. The side point I was trying to make in regards to Beck et al. is that conservatives need to reframe marriage for their followers. The attitude conservatives should have towards marriage is: “Who gives flying pile of squirrel feces what the government thinks about it? My relationship with my wife (husband) is between me, her (him), and God.”

    See, the state can’t force you to get divorced, it can only encourage it, at best. If your view is that you don’t care what the state says about marriage or how they define it, one benefit is that you won’t be going to the state for a divorce, and fighting over assets, children, etc.

    Ultimately, the issue of gay marriage is mostly a distraction for conservatives, and one that distracts them from looking at the damage that feminism has done. As long as conservatives focus on the state’s role in marriage, they will tend to ignore the man’s and woman’s role in marriage, thus fostering the continued breakdown of society.

    Thanks for the linkage, btw. I enjoy going through your lightning rounds.
