    Take some cow treats to Tabasco. He probably likes Snickers. Cows do have a sweet tooth. If you don’t have Snickers, carrots will do. And a scratch between the horns. It gets itchy there, sometimes.

    Wimmins? Hystericals? Usns? Who comes up with this shit?

    • April 2, 2016 at 9:58 pm

      Those of us men folk who know you well and care deeply.

    • April 2, 2016 at 10:15 pm

      Tabasco might like something a bit more toothsome than a snickers.
      Maybe a nice Cow with a flicky tail making eyes at him.

    • April 3, 2016 at 12:48 pm

      Actually a handful of grain with some molasses mixed in will do nicely. That’s how we’d bribe our milk cow years ago to stand still long enough to be milked.

      • April 3, 2016 at 4:58 pm

        My Dad did that when he was a kid. Even when they moved into town, the boys had milking duty.

    “animal cruelty” Heh.

    No doubt there’s a cultural push of feminazism and misandry going on, but those so-called “conservative” so-called “journalists” ganging up as signatories to that idiocy is really no different than their male counterparts signing on to the National Review hit piece issue. It’s blind fear, pure and simple. I find equal parts hate and support for DT among equal parts male and female…not really so much a chromosomal issue in this case.

    And every time some group of “leaders” purport to speak for the people and tell them how eeevil Donnie is, they buy him another million supporters who were on the fence. Kind of like every time the zero makes another pitch for gun control as he dances on the graves of victims, he sells another million guns to folks who weren’t sure if they even wanted one. Both of those behaviors are working to reinforce freedom. Good.

    Keep talking, bitches.

    By an interesting coincidence, I came across this fascinating video essay by a Youtube blogger a few days ago. He covers the same points and concepts as Damon, but from more of an anthropological/historical perspective. PC and other cultural malignancies may be in the ascendant right now, but there are two things they can never overcome: nature/biology and math (in the sense of the impending worldwide financial and population implosions). Here’s the link:

      Yeah, but it isn’t women that destroy nations. It’s the fear of us that does it.

      Or are you saying you think we should be cloistered like nuns, veiled and mummified like ISIS women? If that’s the way you feel, then stay the hell out of my yard.

        S Hooks

        Yeah, but it isn’t women that destroy nations. It’s the fear of us that does it.

        With respect, that’s simply not true. Further, the author is not advocating “subjugating” women or other such sexist jingoism. He does give a very objective and detached analysis of the manner in which the fundamental differences in the biological and cognitive characteristics of men and women have played a role in the rise and fall of civilizations, and what that history portends for our future. You really need to watch the video.

        For myself, as a student of history, it seems obvious that, from time to time, whole nations, cultures and peoples have simply gone insane. It has happened in the past, and we’re living through another such episode right now.

        Sometimes it’s lead in the plumbing…

      • April 3, 2016 at 6:00 am

        Myth. If “Rome fell because of lead poisoning”, then it would have been obvious at the time that something was wrong. Heavy metal poisoning isn’t something one fails to notice, and a plurality of the populace behaving like frothing lunatics would have been written about. (See also the antiquated “mad as a hatter” meme from mercury poisoning in haberdashery.) Furthermore, lead isn’t all that soluble in the forms used for piping and dishware (otherwise they would have dissolved during use…)

        But hey, they have to come up with some other excuses to blame for societal crumbling than the economic and entrepreneurism-killing proto-socialist policies of “bread and circuses”…

      • April 3, 2016 at 6:58 am
        S Hooks

        As H_B noted, lead poisoning has been conveniently overstated as a factor in the decline of Rome, although there’s no question it did cause health problems, especially among the ruling classes. This was most likely due to their diet and the food preparation methods. The patrician class were heavy users of the sweetener they called “sapa”, chemically, lead acetate commonly called lead sugar. ( This exposed them to much higher concentrations of lead than they got from the water from lead plumbing, since the lead pipes usually developed a degree of calcification deposits which somewhat insulated them.

      • April 3, 2016 at 2:22 pm

        We found Soviet refugees suffered from arsenic poisoning. They found western food bland as they were used to arsenic salts — very tasty and deadly.

      • April 3, 2016 at 1:16 am

        No, no, no. What women have done to help destroy the country is to continue to vote for a gigantic welfare state that drains our economy all in the name of having a “safety net” in case something happens. This is one of the major failings of women voting. Of course, it’s pretty much all Democrat/leftist types, including men, but the majority of women will vote for welfare no matter what.
        A smaller amount “don’t follow politics” and vote for whoever is more physically attractive, and they’ll admit it. But, this is a small group. The problem is the larger group voting totally with their emotions, which are quite easy for the leftists to manipulate.
        But it’s not just about being a woman. If it were guys who were prone to “thinking” with their emotional responses, they would be the problem. Women are just one part of what has enabled leftists to destroy the country, and if you can’t see that because of a knee-jerk reaction, you just help prove the point. You should be able to see that many of your “sistahs” do just as I state, without feeling personally attacked.

      I’d been expecting a forceful backlash to the formation of the “Refugee” colonies from the European population. But that above video is from the same vid-blogger S Hooks linked and details how women in Europe are instead objecting to European men standing up for them.

    From a man widely decried by feminists as a misogynist:
    “Whenever women have insisted on absolute equality with men, they have invariably wound up with the dirty end of the stick. What they are and what they can do makes them superior to men, and their proper tactic is to demand special privileges, all the traffic will bear. They should never settle merely for equality. For women, “equality” is a disaster.” ― Robert A. Heinlein

      Point of order, I don’t know of any of Trump’s proposals that need actual congressional action. Building a border wall? Became law in 2006, the Executive branch of government has just declined to actually complete it after building a few miles.

      Ejecting illegal aliens? Can be done by enforcing existing laws and prosecuting those who employ/rent-to those without legal visas.

      Getting Mexico to pay for the wall? Can be done through any number of methods including applying the same affidavit and fee laws that are assigned to monetary transfers into Cuba to the rest of Central/South America.

      Barring entry to muslims? By a 1929(?) law, the President of the United States has the authority to ban entry of any non-citizen or group of non-citizen’s the office of the President determines a danger to national security for any length of time determined.

      Changing trade deals? All the ones I’m aware of have an opt-out clause where a country (in the form of their head of state) can inform the other signatories they are withdrawing from the agreement.

      Getting Europe to pay more for their own defense? As easy as shifting deployments of US military forces and abandoning Rammstein air base.

      Et cetera, et cetera, et cetera. He speaks in general terms, again not giving away any advantage in future negotiations, but everything I’ve heard him talk about he can do without asking “mother may I” from Congress.

    Are you all reading the related news about how the RNC is reassigning the at large delegates, whose names were submitted by the Trump campaign in accordance with the rules. These delegates are being removed and being replaced with anti-Trump delegates (and I think anti-Cruz also) so after the first ballot ot two, the RNC can do steal the nomination. I think that the people of those states where this is happening should have a quiet, “big brother” talk with these delegates and explain that they will need personal protection if they accept and go along with this. Then we need to have this conversation with the RNC and state chairmen who go along with this.

    Also, Liz Muir (?) has just admitted that she made up all this wifey stuff to get Trump and Cruz fighting. She is bragging that they fell for it. I, personally, would like Trump and Cruz to get together, and if the RNC uses any of their dirty tricks at the convention, Make a speech together and announce the founding of an HONEST third partyies as the candidates.

    Herd as in lemmings racing to the cliff of nowhere.
    There is a 1973 book titled The Regiment of Women by Thomas Berger.
    I wonder if Hildebeast read it. I did and found it disturbing. A person should never try to be something they are not. The outcome is never good or what you expected.

    I would do away with the Government run welfare state. It enables bad choices, but since that was the original intent of it in order to garner (buy) votes. There was a time when consequences came with bad behavior and poor choices. A female has two kids, especially under the age of 18, and no husband, tubes are tied. Too stupid not to be celibate or use birth control, sorry but you can’t be trusted. A male spreads his seed, fathers two kids and none with his wife, he’s getting clipped. Sorry dude, should have dated the five sisters or wore a coat. You can’t be trusted.

    A woman wants a to feel “safe” get training, buy a gun, use as directed. Learn Krav Maga. Be responsible. That’s the rub for some. Someone else always has to be responsible. Not the Nanny Staters.
    They need to be able to point fingers and assign blame for their poor choices. Like gold diggers and grifters, some one else needs to pay the tab.

    The only person you need equality with is yourself.

    Liz Mair of Make America Awesome appeared on CNN Tonight to talk to Don Lemon about the infamous ad featuring Melania Trump that spurred Donald Trump into attacking Heidi Cruz.

    Trump blamed Cruz for the initial attack on his wife in spite of the fact that it was done by the Make America Awesome superPAC. Mair responded to that by telling Lemon, “The truth is it’s me. It’s just me.”

  • April 3, 2016 at 10:14 am

    My problem here is that Mr Trump has been and will always be an opportunist. You can make up a story line from him being a Dem operative sent to speed up the implosion of the GOP to him really believing he can be a savior as a “new convert” to Republican values, but his history in life and the business world is to take on one thing, be it a deal, an idea or a woman, and when it becomes too bothersome or interest wanes, he discards it and moves on (insulating himself from consequences of his actions as much as possible). What happens when he feels that way as POTUS?

    • April 3, 2016 at 12:25 pm

      There’s that Trump Rorschach again…

  • April 3, 2016 at 10:38 am

    Do me a favor and read a little history. The nanny state was started before any of you were molecules in the making, by FDR and Eleanor. Yeah, there were jobs provided by the government. My mother had one, working for the WPA.

    But the nanny state was continued in 1965 with REAL welfare by Lyndon Johnson and his Great War on Poverty, which was nothing more than pandering to the lowest common denominator to get votes. That was one of his campaign spouts.

    All we girls wanted was the right to vote, y’know. But when you’re told, as my grandmother was, that you’re not smart enough to understand political stuff and should stick to making soup, who’s the one holding the soup ladle? Yeah, my grandfather passed about 30 years ahead of my grandmother.

    Don’t blame welfare and the nanny state on women. It was men who started it. If you’re stupid enough to hand out cash for doing nothing, you get what you deserve. DON’T blame us for your pecker production. You are the jerks who walk away from YOUR responsibilities to YOUR byblows.

    • April 3, 2016 at 12:24 pm

      Now who’s dodging responsibility? It does take two, you know? If a woman has been abandoned by the father of her child, there are exactly two possibilities for that coming about. One, she is too stupid to recognize an irresponsible man and avoid sleeping with him. Two, she found a good man and was so awful to him that he had to leave to save himself.

      But good luck finding a woman in that position who will accept any responsibility for the situation she finds herself in. It’s always the man’s fault and the man who must do/should not have done something. This is why college age men don’t want to get married anymore; it’s just a bad deal all the way around for them with no upside.

        My sister is a perfect illustration of your point – both sides. On the one hand most of the “men” with whom she has ever been involved were not worth the ammo to shoot them in the head with a .22 back in the days when you could get 500 rounds of .22lr for under $20. The one she DID take up with who was any good she ran off.

      • April 3, 2016 at 7:34 pm

        And no, I tried, but I can’t let your “pecker production” insult pass by. Every woman I’ve ever spoken with on the subject has enshrined their “right to choose” (to murder their significant other’s child) for no other reason than their own inconvenience – even if they insist they would never do so themselves. Yet they deny any veto to their male partner for this action while simultaneously insisting if they don’t kill the child then the man is economically on the hook for the rest of his life – even if they are never allowed to see or interact with the baby.

        Men are forbidden from ever, ever “choosing” whether it’s convenient to have a child or not. (And every man born from the ’80s on knows the horror stories of the “birth control pills” a guy’s girlfriend was taking turning out to be tic-tacs she shaved down with an exacto knife.)

        To top it all off, most women insist, just as you have above, Delilah T, that men have no paternal interest in their own offspring! (assuming they ever find out about them before they are quietly murdered). Men have all the obligation while women have none and insist the reverse is true. Men in America today are regarded by the opposite sex as agency-less economic “brood mares” and the contempt, such as you have shown, is suffocating.

      I’m certain Chris expected that today’s strip would prompt some spirited discussion, and even visceral personal emotions. The nature of the issue makes it extremely difficult for people to approach it with detachment and objectivity. However, it’s essential we remember that neither the author of the vid-blog article, nor anyone here, was not trying to attack or provoke any individuals, but rather to warn us about an existential threat to Western civilization.

      Both men and women are to blame for the deliberate deconstruction and degradation of our culture, but if we are unable, collectively, to move beyond an endless “he said-she said” cycle of blame, and focus on the hard reality of the situation, then Western civilization is doomed. In fact, the author’s personal opinion is that it’s already too late.

      Everyone is entitled to their own opinions; none of us, however, are entitled to our own facts, or more to the point, our own reality. For this issue, that hard reality is that there are certain immutable biological differences between men and women, differences that have evolved over thousands of years as necessary for our species’ survival, and no matter how hard we try to impose an arbitrary new template (one which did not evolve naturally), nature and reality will not cooperate, and will, in fact, bite us in the butt.

      For specific examples of how this has played out culturally, and rather than clogging up Chris’ bandwidth, I again urge watching the video I linked.

      Child support runs across all 50 states and territories and possessions, and, international agreements extend its reach across the world.

      Talk about the little kids having their hooks into the parents.

      I would go into court for some of the employees. Fairness was almost impossible. but sometimes. It was progressive administrative law at the extreme. The state usually determines how the parents must act and pay with little leeway.
      Also I have heard criminals tell other criminals to get at least one kid. The judges in criminal cases like to keep the parents out to support the kids in many cases.
      The nanny state is also a human control mechanism.

  • April 3, 2016 at 11:48 am

    Heck, Delilah, I don’t have to read a little history. All I would get from that is revisionist history, which I think you have just a little mixed in (not on purpose). I lived that history. Starting with the dust bowl, The only good thing about that was as a kid, you could walk down a section line road and keep your feet cool from the super hot dust by pushing your toes under the dust. My dad was in a sanitorium, and my mama ended up being land clerk for the county, she later did the same thing for an abstract company. Johnson was not popular, but he was part of the dhimocraptic cabal of Johnson, Rayburn, Kerr and ol’ Carl Albert, a bigger bunch of crooks you will never find.By the time Johnson got finished, all our taxes were higher and most of the welfare women worked in the government offices. With the high taxes, families required two wage earners. The needs of the bomber plant and the need to pay taxes put women to work.

    I’ve been staying out of this discussion because, frankly, it’s generating more heat than light. But I will respectfully suggest that lumping all women together and making blanket generalizations about us, is just a bit over the top. I, and I suspect all the other independent thinking women who hang around here, are about as far from “herd creatures” as it’s possible to get. Heck, my parents always said the first sentence out of my mouth was, “I dood it myself.” When I went off to grad school, the faculty and my fellow grad students all wanted to know “what aspect of women in Soviet society” I was interested in studying. (My answer was “none.”) BTW, they were mostly men. In other words many women act like “herd” creatures because they’ve been forced there. Refusing to be manipulated might be intellectually satisfying, but let me tell you, it also leads to a lonely and solitary existence. Women pay a far higher price for leaving the herd than men do.

    But it’s worth it, and I try to get that through to my students, male and female. Thinking for yourself is a scary thing when you’ve never done it before, but I normally get a few converts each semester.

Check into the stats on Control for age, for ethnicity, for education, for geographical location, for income, for profession, for any of the other variables they track, and much more interesting and informative set of results emerges. Only then can there be a meaningful conversation.

      It’s too bad that independent women are in the minority these days. Now let’s discuss how to wake up the rest.

    Bravo, Polly Cy. The Old Country Daughter got her PhD fighting against all the men and libruls in grad school. Her thesis was on the role of Russian/soviet women in the communist regime and the USA. She statistically proved that women had always contributed as doctors, vets, etc. They worked in the Russian war industries because they learned how to on the farms. The same in the USA. Then she did something underhanded. she used a computer (using Lotus) to analyze the existing government employment statistics, to show that the women had steadily, and uninterruptedly became an increasing part of the workforce, with no inflection due to the war. She encountered a lot of opposition and criticism by proving them all wrong using their own data. The comments included it was cheating of her to use a special military program (Lotus???) to prove her point. A few of the older professors praised her, the new young libruls thought she was terrible because of what she proved. I realize this is second hand from me, but I’m darn proud of that girl for standing up the right way! I won’t publish her name.

      Well, you see, if we don’t have dissent of opinion, then we have a one-sided view of everything, don’t we?

      And what else is one-sided? Aha! Dictatorships!

      Right now, the political arena is heaving with differing opinions. It scares the living daylights out of The Establishment.

      The SJWs are the age I was when I left home for good, but they act more like spoiled brats than adults. They have NO idea what things were like 50 years ago. NOTHING!

      I see absolutely no harm in speaking one’s mind. I think there is plenty of blame to go around. If there is any blame at all, I would drop it on the people who have said in previous election years that they didn’t vote because there was no one to vote for.

      I don’ t think women support candidates based on ‘looks’ any more than I think men go to Hooters for the food. 🙂

      While you’re sorting that out, just remember you have choices in this election. I said pick the candidate you despise the least. It’s better than not voting at all.

      Glad I could stir the pot a little, anyway.

      Sounds like an interesting study. I’ve probably even met her, although I rarely attend conferences any more. I used algorithmic applications (block modeling and hierarchical clustering models) to analyze movements into and out of the top party organs (Politburo and Secretariat) in the parties of several East European states as well as the USSR. I suppose I should have done something with women in Soviet society, but it felt too much like academic apartheid: a little area called “women’s issues” was set aside for us, and we were expected to stay there and never venture out into the wider scholarly world. Oops! Do I sound bitter? I shouldn’t. I had several incredibly supportive and encouraging mentors, all men.

    Trump did not get played by Liz Mair. He got caught in another lie, blaming Cruz for the ad, then doubling down on stupid with his tweets about Heidi. But Trump did not own up to his bad judgement. Likewise, his thug Corey was rough with a reporter and lied about that too. Trump steps on his own d*ck, and then blames everyone else for his mistakes.

    Uh, Sam? If you love Tabasco, let him go. If he comes back to you really fast, you know he enjoys how you run for the fence.

    As do we all, in that “I hate to see you leave (But I love to watch you go)” kinda way.

    Herd mentality is strong in both genders, most often manifested in “mob mentality” Chris. The mistake often made is assuming that progressives wholly support the “common people” (sometimes referred to internally as the “unwashed masses”). In reality political “progressives” see them as only a tool to influence their access to power and control, which fact most social progressives fail to recognize. Both parties provide narratives that feed the masses simple concepts (memes anyone?) that drive their agendas. The evolved nature of public education and its controllers has created the fertile mindset to accept this conceptualization, both anti- in opposition to the other, and pro- in support of your own. Every aspect of ideology that flows out these sources is immediately suspect, and requires an iron-clad skeptical mindset to thrash away the chaff and find what few kernel of reality there might be.

    In the end we are, much like Rome, (yeah I know yet ANOTHER reference to the fall of Rome) the victim of our own prosperity. Prosperity breeds complacence, laziness, and contempt for work. It is the functional cycle of social existence. or perhaps human nature is designed to have such “fail-safes” in order to prevent too much success in an alpha population. Hmmmm.

      There are all sorts f theories of how to destroy what exists such as our prosperity and ability to create by socialists, communists, Fabians, Illuminati(?), progressives, Marxists, Leninists, Trotsky-ites, enemies of the USA, Maoists, La Reconquistas, La MECHAS, Bolivaruian Socialists, Muslims, etc.
      They all involve our discussion.
      We would never have this discussion in the collapse they desire, nor the Utopia they envision after the carnage they desire.
      The nationalism one candidate is the antidote to most of the enemies, if not all, for such time until we become complacent again.
      The others have conquering agendas. We have beneficial agendas in our base mode. Problem. We have been hijacked by other agendas in the name of good, an example is Hillary and Obama imposing their created “Duty To Protect” on Libya, thus using a claimed good to bring about the horror, genocide and horror in North Africa, The Middle East, and in Europe.

    Very much AWALT.
    All the rest is male fantasy.
    Wymyn know it.
    We ignore it at our peril and civilization’s.
    Wymyn laugh at us behind our backs in the most ignominious manner.

    Just a warning to the Men. If you ever see “How to Train Your Puppy” in the hands of a Bride to Be or a newly married Woman, RUN! Do Not Stop.

    It was the standard joke in the 70’s for Husband Training and a few people I knew used it. It did not end well.

    Sam, do not attempt to hug the bull. It gets all over you when you do.

  • April 3, 2016 at 7:50 pm

    Hogtied. Perfect.
    And humane.

    Thank God Trump has opened up our discussions again.

    If only the captive press were not guiding so many.

    Even allegedly our own press is captive in their minds.
    They may even think that they are doing good. Poor souls.

    The truth shall set them free. may they be able to handle the truth.

    By the way, I have been pro chick my whole life. They are my existence.
    And how my heart has been ripped out.
    Gotta love them. 🙂
