The Wisdom Of Youth?

Or full of shit?  You decide.

When I was younger (30 years ago) and started becoming aware of what was going on around me, I could not help but notice the stridency of feminism and its movement.  Some of it I agreed with (equal promotion for equal work, elimination of discrimination in tasks both sexes could do (NOT the military or firemen, etc.) but most of it was bullshit.

Around that time, some of us AF guys were sitting around discussing longevity and without giving it much thought I blurted out, “of course women live longer than men.  Most of them do not work, they do not have to deal with the stress of a demanding boss, the possible loss of the job, the fact that society considers them the “bread-winner” and responsible for putting food in the mouths of and a roof over the head of their families.  These are all responsibilities of men.  Men who have to travel away from their families and therefore have to absorb the stresses and strains of separation.  Men who have to contend with the stresses of traffic.  Who spend so much time AWAY from home.  Of course they are going to die before the women.”

I then went on to say (remember, this is without benefit of scientific studies, research, etc.  It was right off the cuff.) “As soon as more and more women enter the workforce and start bearing the stress and strain of financially maintaining families and households, they will lose this edge and the numbers will balance out.”

So...................was I right? 

The scientists in these studies want to point out things like smoking, guns, recklessness as causes for male deaths.  But if they could not identify the reasons 50 years ago, and given the massive upheavals we’ve witnessed in the societal fabric, what gives them the right to jump to the conclusions they do using today’s data?  They have nothing to compare it to.

I like my reasons better. Hey, given how WRONG experts are (see this) who says I can’t be right?

I Think I Know Who

Given yesterday’s post I think that cops should maybe go to Reno and ask a certain individual there if he’d been in Milan recently.  Didn’t the article say he was over-sexed?

So, if it was not the guy in the article, which one of you BMEWS readers are responsible?

BWAH HA HA HA!!

You better have your alibis ready!!!

I Can Respect This Guy

He said no one should be forced to wear a seat belt.

That was in September 2004

He died the other day. In a car crash.  He was ejected from the vehicle.  He was not wearing a seat belt.  Hey, at least we don’t have to pay his medical bills had he survived.

You gotta admit, he had the courage of his convictions.

The Price Of Freedom?

When you read something like this, it then becomes readily appraent why you will later see things like this.

For the record, (and just because I felt like it) I submitted the latter to the FBI on their Tips Line.  Dissent is one thing.  Openly promoting activities that can cause bodily harm and ease the introduction of terrorism to our country is another.  Now, however, if we were to tie a bunch of these moonbats to said balloons and allow our Boy Scouts and 4-H kids a chance to practice their sharpshooting skills after the balloons had reached 500 feet altitude---THAT would be good sport!

Canuckistani Perversion

First you have to ask:  “where are the parents in this scenario?”

And then you have to wonder why there is no concerted effort to find these sick fucks and sterilize them.

As for the “husband”?  He’s a minister!!! 

Sterilization is too kind.

Your Turn

Wasn’t it great how often the president (and everyone else for that matter) brought up “GOD” today?  The invocation?  The best I’ve ever heard.  The President’s speech?  It’ll go down in history as one of the best.

It’s as if they wanted to rub the noses of the atheists and Democrats in it.  I can just see them huddled somewhere, giggling maniacally, putting all of this together.

GOD BLESS THE USA!!!

GO ahead, tell us how you feel.

A Tragedy With One Of Our Readers?

Steel, please tell us it isn’t so. 

To think the moonbats are so bad in Reno you’d resort to this?  You weren’t the one were you?

Four More Years

It’s official. As of noon today, George W. Bush was sworn in as President of the United States. Thank God!

“There is only one force of history that can break the reign of hatred and resentment and expose the pretensions of tyrants, and reward the hopes of the decent and tolerant, and that is the force of human freedom.”

“All who live in tyranny and hopelessness can know: The United States will not ignore your oppression, or excuse your oppressors. When you stand for your liberty, we will stand with you.”

“Across the generations we have proclaimed the imperative of self-government, because no one is fit to be a master, and no one deserves to be a slave.”

“America will not pretend that jailed dissidents prefer their chains, or that women welcome humiliation and servitude, or that any human being aspires to live at the mercy of bullies.”

A $1000 Financial Class For Free

Unless you’ve been living in a cave or refuse to acknowledge it, social security is big news right now.

We’ve had quite a spirited discussion on this blog about it and even trapped us a moonbat in the process.

Socialists and their fawning butt-boys, the media and AARP, are dead set against privatization.  Their reasons are many and varied and all wrong because they pre-suppose all Americans are as stupid as they are and do not know how to invest in the stock market or know how to manage their money.  They need a Mommy Government to take care of them.  Larry Elder nails it well in this piece.

No matter how you slice and dice it, it all boils down to theft of MY money from the government under the ruse that when I retire I will get some sort of “supplement” to help me out in my elder years.

Not a day passes by where I do not read some letter to the editor or some editorial where the authors wail and gnash their collective teeth and say, “But what if the stock market crashes like it did a few years ago just as you retire?  What about those poor people who lose everything?”

Well, let me tell you something, Boopsie. If you are fully invested in the stock market by the time you retire, you DESERVE to be wiped out for being stupid.  Because that’s exactly what you are: S-T-U-P-I-D!  And Larry Elder has ID’d your ass.  Not only that, you are GREEDY!
There’s a great saying on the Street: bulls make money, bears make money, PIGS get slaughtered.  And if you are a pig, we will feast on your bacon.

So, does anyone believe that we would embark on such a task as privatization without some sort of education effort first?  And the effort is as simple as a risk test associated with some percentage charts which track where you should have your money and in what percentages.  Just like you get that little notice from the SSA telling you what you’ve paid in and what you will probably get, so the government or the companies that handle your PSAs will send you annual statements advising you of what you should be doing and what you should avoid.

Allow me to give you what I use for my own financial well-being.  Remember, I retired at 45.  I do not have a lot of money but I am comfortable, not extravagant.  Granted, some of that is a military pension but most of it goes to an ex-spouse and the federal government in taxes.  The balance is investments. 

The information I am about to impart to you is worth millions but I give it to you for free.  That’s what the “benevolent” in Benevolent Dictator means.  However, if you feel like contributing towards the BMEWS fund (renewals are due this month and all contributions gladly accepted!!) then use our paypal link.  We appreciate it.

First off, take a risk assessment test. Many are available.  Fidelity has a good one as I believe so does Vanguard.

Assuming you can have moderate risk taking ability, between the ages of 18 and 40 a person should be fully invested in stocks.  A good all-inclusive index fund is sufficient.  The more risk you want to take, the more you should seek riskier investment instruments--individual stocks, market sectors, global stocks, margins, puts, calls, etc.

At the age of 40, the individual should then pare his stock holdings down from 100% to about 75% with the balance in a good bond fund.  More risk averse investors may decide to leave everything ride or invest their bond portion into riskier corporate bonds or junk bonds.

This 75/25 mix is good for about 10 years.  At age 50, the investor should do some more re-balancing.  The stock portion of the portfolio should then go to around 65% with 35% in bonds.

At age 55, the percentage should change again.  This time to a 50/50 mix.

By age 60, the percentages should be 25% stocks and 75% bonds.  At age 62, that mix goes to 20/80.

By 65, it should be 10/90.  This way, should the stock market collapse and knowing that it usually recovers within 5 years, you are never really hurt.  You can draw checks from your account because your bond portfolio side will stay safer and is not subject to such wild fluctuations.  Meanwhile, as the market recovers, THAT portion of your portfolio will continue to grow and make your losses disappear.

Remember, the market works in nothing else but cycles.  Time will pull you out of a bad one.

Again, this is for the “social security” portion of your investment holdings.  You do not want to screw with these monies too much.  For your “regular” retirement portfolio and other investments, the percentages are almost similar but accept more risk since you now have one portfolio holding up the other.

Also, your percentages will vary based on whether or not you collect a retirement check which is pretty much guaranteed (teacher, military, GS employee, etc.) You can take more risk since now your retirement table has three legs (the SS leg, your retirement portfolio leg, and your pension check leg.)

It’s that simple.  Lesson over.  Come on, fork over some money!  grin

Cosby In The News Again

We’d be racists if we said this but only people like Cosby can hammer home the message we’ve been trying to send: take responsibility for yourself and tell the poverty pimps, the race-baiters, and victicrat enablers to go to hell.

I’m Ordering My Book Today

I recommend you do the same and buy an extra set to give to a college age young adult.

Work with me on this one.  Read it all the way through and you will understand.

And while you’re at it, forward this to every student you know. This leftist activist bullshit at our schools has to stop and this guy is on the right track.

Here’s what he proposes.  He says students can accomplish quite a bit by:

logging the amount of time professors spend making political speeches. We are not targeting professors who teach subjects where politics relates to the subject matter. Again, we don’t have a problem with professors having opinions and discussing them when appropriate. But we do want to know about professors who preach politics in classes where it has nothing to do with what’s being studied.

If you’re a current college student, here’s what you can do:

1. When a professor voices his or her political views in class--but only when it does not pertain to the subject matter at hand--keep track of how much class time is spent on the political discussion, and to the best of your ability, record the comments made by the professor.

2. Also, record the date of the discussion, the name of your professor, the name and course ID of the class, and the name and location (city and state) of your school.

3. Lastly, you must be able to provide the name of at least one other student who was present at the time and who is willing to corroborate your report.

He then mentions where you can send this info to.

More On Social Security

If you think we pay too much for taxes and social security, read this article on the trials and tribulations the socialists in Germany are going through.

It’s finally dawned on them that they MUST change their welfare system, unemployment compensation system and social security system.

After all, when one of your citizens starts taking unemployment, moves to another country, claims it is more expensive to live there, demands more money, and gets it---then something REALLY is wrong!  TRUE STORY as you will soon see when you click on the above link.  No shit.  He actually pulled it off.  Got fired (or quit) moved to Florida and then compained saying he wasn’t getting enough.  The German government sent him more money!!!!

As a side note, pay particular attention to the paragraphs dealing with their social security system.


Want to know the true cost of social security? Read this.

But it does not really matter since the socialists in this country, incapable of taking care of themselves and wanting a mommy government whose tit they can suck off of and who can wipe their shitty behinds because they’ve not yet learned to control the shit that spews from their asses and their mouths, won’t pay attention.

As many intelligent readers at this site know, the true issue is this:  IT IS OUR FUCKING MONEY AND WE WANT CONTROL OF IT!!
I will also tell you that I would line up and eagerly volunteer to shoot anyone who decides to privatize their own contributions and because of greed or stupidity loses it all and then goes crying to government for assistance. 

Pay really close attention to what the author is trying to say relative to how money increases and decreases in value as you slide the bar of “Father Time” across its face.

Here’s a taste:

The second reason $3.7 trillion is misleading is that it leaves the public with the impression that the federal government will only have to come up with $3.7 trillion over the next 75 years to keep the system solvent. Yet as the quote from the 2004 Report notes, that $3.7 trillion is the “present value.”

You smart ones will see it and understand.  The dumb ones will argue with me.  Sorry, I don’t “do” stupid.  I won’t respond.

  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
