    I suspect this may explain a lot of the increasing violence and hatred toward women as well.
    Being the underdog for several thousand years, it’s just a knee jerk reaction to push a woman (or anybody) even lower that you are harder to the ground

    Might as well just go with

    I was bitterly disappointed by President Obama

    and leave it at that.

    Why would he mention climate change when he’s planning actions which will only increase the carbon we throw off with bombs?

    Kissinger’s brain ossified sometime in the 15-20 years. What is he doing back making comments on anything, anyway?
    Is it because the dems and repubs have finally mind melded in a meaningful way? Or that Obama announced early on that his fave pres was Reagan?

    How about this: “men are afraid women will laugh at them; women are afraid men will kill them”. There are clues that a man is going to harm you. Learn them by reading an excellent book called “The Gift of Fear”By Gavin de Becker. It may save your life. Going back to hunter/gatherer is a [...]

    I’d say that possibly the dems might stand up to the fast track free trade issue and maybe not attack women’s wombs so much.

    Other than that, Biden has promised that America will “follow ISIS to the gates of hell” And I don’t think he means it rhetorically whether he thinks he does or not.
    Frankly a nice winnable war may be what Obama needs right now and lo, and behold, here comes some nastier than nasty beheading villains.

    Or as some like to say these days…maybe I’m “over thinking” this.
    Is that from Dr OZ or something??

    it is important to abolish capitalism and institute another system

    Yes, and I do not think we can go back to earlier, failed economic paradigms. It’s going to have to be something new….or very old

  • Know what you mean, feel better OK?

  • Personally, I do not believe nor suspect that we have “elected” anyone since Jimmy Carter. We certainly did not elect Governor Bush…either time.

    Face it, empires are never democracies.

    AIPAC got to her.
    I read an article last week ( can’t find it now) where 5 senators approved part of the extortion $$$ for the Iron dome…about 200 million, before rushing off to their vacations
    How the heck is that legal?

    And now, apparently, the American poor will be squeezed for the rest of it. I doubt many cheerleaders realized the cost for this “Israel has a right to defend itself” was going to come out of their pockets.
    I heard the same prop line from both right and left

    The lack of estrus may be related to the simple situation of endless mating…in both species. There are remnants of estrus in the fertile times of the month for females.

    Most tribes of mammals isolate the young males because they cause so much trouble. Lions surely do this. I don’t know if apes do it but I suspect they do. Once the males are sufficiently able to be social, they may or may not be allowed back into the pride/tribe.
    Lion prides are ruled by the lionesses and they decide who the male will be to have their cubs with.
    With most of the big cats of Africa, the female walks alone as the male is so dangerous to her and her offspring. Same thing with polar bears.
    It’s nearly universal in mammals that the male is avoided as being the most dangerous to the young.
    If humans weren’t so smart, we would have died out long ago

    I’ve often thought humans have become like a baboon society. Ever since the Indo-European invasions of the Fertile Crescent a few millennia ago, I suspected that, through our endless wars of primacy for a few alpha males, that we killed off the less aggressive males and have been left with, basically…nutjobs for men.
    Sure let me state the ol’ saw that not all men are like this, but the ones who attain power sure are and they are the ones who “count”.
    If one reads deeply into his-story, it’s pretty much nothing but wars. If one reads deeply into archeology, one finds the inverted mythology of nearly all the world religions used to control us through fear.

    Now, of course, we have fear as a constant from the last 15 years of the war on terror and our society has devolved into a digital one where people can only seem to relate to each other thru something like Facebook.
    Meanwhile, the alphas have taken over and in their fear of anything can’t control seek to destroy it…including the Earth Herself.

    Interesting that those alpha baboon got all the tainted meat because they wouldn’t allow the lower ranking members to share the treat.

    It’s nearly prophetic
