Men The New Ball & Chain ?
Men the New Ball & Chain?
So it was said in the Newser article entitled “ Women Are the New Men THE POST INDUSTRIAL ECONOMY BELONGS TO FEMALES”
While it might be hard to argue with the facts that 8 million jobs that were lost in the recession were lost to men, and as quoted in the article: “postindustrial economy is indifferent to men’s size and strength- The attributes that are most valuable today—social intelligence, open communication, the ability to sit still and focus—are, at a minimum, not predominantly male”, the way I feel seems to add fuel to the fire.
In our 21st Century modern world were women have not only surpassed men in many fields and areas in competence in the work place, education, and by God in still being able to raise the kids, a women has shown men just how marvelous she is. In a sad way I’ve experienced myself this crazy insane competition that my own wives, at different times, have had with me.
My second wife even made the comment that she was somewhat upset with herself that I had bought the house and provided it for her 4 kids for the time we were together. I was flabbergasted by the inner competitive race being run, that I had no idea I was in. For my own part, I look at a women’s role as something I could never ever fill, so why or even how could I compete?
That’s insane! As to her intelligence and ability to figure and accomplish a task, I certainly don’t hold anything back as to credit to women. I often feel without being told, that I have worn out my usefulness. If I’m resented for what I can do, that she can’t, in any given circumstance, for whatever reason; bad credit, kids to feed, or anything really that can affect a man just as well, AND I’m ridiculed for what I can’t do or fail at, being hit with a recession or joblessness; there is no room for a good job well done.
It’s a catch 22 that really leaves you feeling blue. Well, I suppose we all like feeling needed. And when either of the sexes perpetrates the lack of needing each other upon the opposite, they are really in a state of pride just ready to fall off the pedestal.
Hopefully, for whatever reason one of the sexes in a marriage has fallen short, the other one is ready and willing to pick up the slack. As a team of horses is pulling a wagon, the most is truly accomplished when they are pulling in tandem, working together as one in the best ways they can. The burdens are lighter, and a labor of love is enjoyed.
In the age of these post modern wonder women, if she is to be congratulated, she also must bear the fruits of her labors. What in our world are we dismal in? Well, the prisons are full near capacity, the debts about 14 Trillion, and the kids are born into slavery just coming into the world oweing $40,000 before they take their first breath here in the United States. Something is very wrong! Could any of that be contributed to the new women in our world being so competitive in the work field that her children received a man’s wages instead of her invaluable nurturing? Could any of that be not waiting to pay cash but the influence of pleasing a women and buying alot more then what you have cash for? But now.. its' all going to be different?
Where is Mom? Oh she’s working and will be home tired and washed up around 7pm. Well, post modern world has a solution for that too- Don’t have children! Then you can do it without the guilt!
The resultant plan of attack literally attacks the society at the heart. Eating away at the blood supply of the population reduction we find fewer people supporting Social Security and the elderly entitlement plans that are vital. We see a deflation in the population, and a loss of revenue in the tax bucket, which drives politicians crazy trying to figure out how to get more people into the tax system with say immigration amnesty, and still trying to tell them it’s greater to give to your new country then to take: a desperate attempt to lower the standard in order to increase the tax revenue.
While women may compete with men, when the competition drives her away from the home in large degrees and in comparison to a man, the competition is always going to hurt society in the long run, because there is just no replacement for women in the family unit. A man can do what he can and many of us do in watching the kids and trying to fill in a gap and families all over the United States dealing with what they have to deal with.
Hopefully, they are valuing each other enough to realize that either one down in the dumps or dealt a rough hand is no reason to quit the team. Financial hard ships are the easiest reason to start dumping on one another. The best piece of advice I can think of to give anyone taking the time to read this is to remember to act in love, because it poses the least regret. People are people and in a truth the saying that “God don’t make no junk” is as true today as it ever was. A beat up car may take a new part here or there, but it’s no reason to trash the whole car.
That’s just a little comparison to not giving up on each other and realizing that situations never stay the same. Change happens every day, and just as sure as a women says a guy is her ‘ball and chain” the World War III breaks out, millions of men die and she realizes her world has been so flipped that for some reason he was needed and now he is dead and she is alone.
Then her prayer is not for a equal pay, not for equal status, she could give a damn about the race now she has won. God has just shown her that when reaping what you sew, he indeed created his sons. Sometimes winning wasn’t the best idea against a man. That being unique and strange and opposite of her was much nicer then having a bunch of her make-up stole, and her clothes worn of which she, in most cases anyway, never had to worry about him taking or wearing.
Speaking for and not against the laws of nature that everyone of us are stuck with facing regardless of any most modern scholastic horse shit, thank God for a man’s production ability! While her limitations are set at 1 pregnancy a year, there is no match for a man’s ability to create literally millions in one shot! There is no competing with that, and there’s not even a reason to argue against the laws of nature. They just are, and if that makes you mad it’s a pretty good reason to say come on guys, let’s go to the game, while she deals with her own mother nature.
You know, if there was any competition I'd just like to make an official declarations "Women Have Won!". Knowing women as I do, I'm almost postive that is not going to do the trick, they won't feel better knowing they have won. We're going to have to change a few things now starting with the coined addage that have been a womens pretty cozy compliment, "Behind every man is a better women". Now, they have won, we will have to say, "Behind every women, is a better man".
I don't like that though.. I like the idea of honoring a women, but in truth it's simply because she is women and in all I do, I could never ever ever ever do what she is so capable of doing.
Here is my latest campaign video.. enjoy!
