    The US, in its own decline, is showing this same self-destructive tendency. The worse things get, the greater the inclination of the citizenry to say, “Carry on, everything’s fine.”

As a further note, I think if you have a room of guys and a woman doesn't find any of them particularly attractive, they'll be drawn to the richest and most powerful.

The key is sparking attraction... and you need neither power nor money (or looks, for that matter) to do it.

I hear you; I was generalizing.

Interesting studies with monkeys; the females of the alpha male(s) will sneak off and cheat with the males at the bottom of the pecking order. 

You can be a good man with no power or money and attract a Woman, but only one who has come to value who you are.

Have you ever noticed that it's when you're not attempting to pull a woman, you always pull a woman?

It's not life being perverse - it's the nature of what you're like when you're not trying to pull.

This guy has a lot of useful insights:


I don't agree with everything he says - and he's a bit stiff and mannered - but he's 85% on the money as regards attracting women. I'd always been reasonably succesful attracting women, but had never sat down and worked out what worked, and what didn't. Someone signed me up for his email newsletters and, at first, I thought, WTF, I don't need this. But when I read some of his stuff, then reflected on my own experience, a lot of things clicked into place.

Obviously, he's peddling his course materials. But if you sign up for the free newsletter, it contains a lot of value, gratis.

Of course, if you can already walk into a random bar, and have a 90% chance of walking out with an attractive woman, you won't need this help :-)

Agree on all 4 counts, the first a by-product of 2 and 3, and sometimes 4. I would add insight, knowledge, wisdom, compassion, freedom of thought.

You won't get economic empowerment with the gold standard either.  Too few own too much of the noble metal and also the means of production. We see what Blythe is doing now. Do you think anything would change ?  Nope. We need revolution.

Know what you get at, but IMO gold is just a standard, a control against insanity.  That is revolution enough.

You're half right, half wrong.  A gold standard is necessary for a free society, but it is not sufficient.  We need to get rid of the war makers as well, the "leaders" (kings, generals, presidents, etc.) that indebt us (to the banksters) to pay for their schemes of conquest.

The tricky part is how to get rid of the king without having the commies take over.

Market-determined (ie, hard) money is only half the story. The other half is disallowing fractional-reserve banking.

If a banking licence entitles its bearer to lend out multiples of deposits, thereby inflating the money supply, by definition the money is no longer specie-backed.

The same thing happened towards the end of the depression era during the war years, when inflation was rampant at the same time as chronically low interest rates.

I would like to believe we are basically at the same crossroads, where we are 11 years into a world depression where the war is being fought with the apparatus of the corporate-controlled state. In 1942 inflation was so much of a concern, that wage and price controls were federal policy.

when batmanke sez he will "withdraw the liquidity @ the appropriate time,"  he is really selling the congolese a suzy creamcheese.  he started "planning" the "sale" of these ass-ettes in '09, and told us to look forward to the ides of the march hair in 2010, but just screamed thru gotham w/ the retro's fired, instead.

if printing, QE, monetization, murdering children, Benocide, or whatever werksforusjerkz is inflatuairy, hmmm, i wonder what "selling the ass-ettes" would cause? he promises to do so, at the appropriate time. 

a)  is this just smoke?  probably, and the congostatins know it.   BUTT:

b)  s'pose he actually waxed poletic and actually launched those MBS's into the "economy", just in case we started to wake up to and mebbe stop being mini lionisticalcyanista'z by proxy?

they're also talking about pricing (ie, paying for) oil in currencies other than the USD.

awesum! the no. gonnorheanz al-red-y habdem by prozy.  her's a fun, kinkylinky for all you shitforbrainedmotherfukinassholioz who romantiZe about armed conflict.  the films of these chinese infanrty assaults are in the archives of the US miltary academy. west pt. un-freaking believable!  Over 40 yrs. ago, Robert Crumb did a fabulous comic about the chinese sending a missle into the US, loaded w/ people... probably just his head exploding.  again. 

The Korean War: The Chinese Intervention

as i recall, the "cover story" for replacing DuggieDoggMac was b/c he "wanted to nuke"  chicomz so we could win the dance contest.  something about his/our men, perhaps, like in japan.  nope, let's just draw the line and all go home and be MadMen. 

so we had another dance contest.  vietnam.  and since the US MILITARY was not permitted to win there, either, we lost.  so kissinger stroked the deal with mao so we could get presidential muPpet mccain home, alive.  operatic, indeed.  you know who had henry the K on the leash?

right!  nelson ALDRICH rockefeller.  but, their family is highly respookted in nyc because of the center, the fun skating, and the awesum chri$tma$ tree, right there at Radio City.  one thing about the NY gov and VP under nixon, he died in the saddle!

moving right along to iran:  slewie wonders if anyone who believes iran has been unable to, somehow, get its pawz on a nuke 0' three, is smoking better shit than he is.
