Americans Have Become Drama Queens

This will be a strange post. I've been around many decades. Enough, I think, to see firsthand how our society has changed in many ways. The last couple decades I've marveled at the feminization of men, the explosion in reality drama shows like "Real Housewives" and "Bachelorette". This, of course, got me slowly slinking away...haha. Raising my son, teaching him what a man is, has me in conflict with professional educators in our government education system. So be it.

I mentioned recently here how my transition into my Gulch location and state of mind included dropping out of all social media because I felt like watching people I care about get wrapped around the axle for crap that doesn't matter was like staring into the abyss. Well, just yesterday it struck again. I was way out on a hike with my dog to a remote lake, light rain, big pine trees and my gun on my hip (for the kitties). When I got back to my truck I had an voicemail from a beautiful lady friend of mine who informed me that there was a rumor going around back in California that she and I had slept together. (I'm happily married, FWIW). I laughed out loud, called her and said, "Don't worry about it. If anything this looks good for me because you're so gorgeous. I hope the rumor gets legs!" Both she and my wife laughed (gotta love good women). I'm so glad to be away from that whole scene. But these kind of accusations and rumors about me have been happening for years. It makes me wonder what really makes people tick. This latest one was spread by a jealous ex-husband who saw a picture of me on FB and assumed I was a philanderer. LOL... (account deleted now)

My point is that it seems that people are getting more and more interested in sex stories, other people's business. Meanwhile nobody cares about stuff that really matters (the stuff we talk about here) - at all. I really think it's as though there's "something in the water" when I see the mass stupidity that's going on, even with people I've known for years and stayed in touch with. Have you seen this with people in your lives? Do you find yourself sitting on the sidelines watching people act crazy? I am starting to think that shows like "housewives" is programming people, planting the memes, to make them nuts. I remember the first time I saw that movie "The Crazies" - about the little Kansas town where something gets in the water that turns people into violent zombies and, in the end, the place gets nuked. Haha... FWIW - I drink my water through an RO system at the house... go figure...

    Just a couple days ago there was a quick headline about "Octomom" and what her kids are like now. I remembered that whole media phenomenon back then. What grabbed me was how angry the public was at this lady having all these kids. All the pundits going on and on and on about her poor morals, etc. I think that was near the beginning of me getting red pilled. It feels like hustling to the lifeboat on the Titanic going by thousands of people and hearing them ranting about the cheap furniture on the boat...

    I've been mulling this over for a while, Why don't we stop blaming "America or Americans" (that's what they want you to think and say), and call it for what it is: Cultural Marxism; which, by the way, has overtaken much of the world.

      This is the world of communists, Marxists and fascist pigs. They are deranged, satanic cowards and losers, and making a fortune in the process. Tyranny lurks in the shadows, desperately trying to destroy freedom at every turn. Today, they have been dragged out of the shadows, in preparation for their final assault on humanity.

    I stopped watching tv in the late 80's except for news and enough sports to be able to have a
    conversation with my father who was a sports addict. I stopped watching news and most sports
    in the early 90's. So most of my 'programming' is from before that time.
    I think I stopped because the messages being broadcast made no sense.
    Continuing to spend many billions on military after our primary foe was defeated made me
    realize that nothing rational was coming out of D.C. and that wasn't going to change.
    The threats that Perot received when he was running for POTUS made me realize that
    the fedgov was being guided by those who are even more evil than I had previously thought.
    The last straw was the mass murder at Waco.
    TV and movies are a cesspool of disgusting violence, lies, and misinformation.
    The evil empire is in D.C. and they will use any act regardless of consequences to
    gain more power including brainwashing Americans using mass media.
    That's why I repeatedly say NIFO.

      You are right that they'll try anything to gain more power over the citizens. My fear is that since this latest ploy to try to use covid to scare us looks like it's being seen for the joke it is...What will they try next? If Newsome's the next President there are no limits to this... A hot war with Russia (and China) isn't out of the realm of possibilities.

      yeah, just think of what $1 Trillion could buy - that's what we threw away in Afghanistan, and is our yearly "defense" budget. It would get 10,000,000 houses at $100,000 each. That would solve the homeless situation in a NY minute. We are spending $trillions on bombs to destroy things, and a fruitless (and dishonest) quest to spread "democracy" around the world,. while other countries spend on infrastructure and hi-speed trains, etc..

      And privatize the public housing in big cities. In Russia, with the fall of communism, every apartment dweller became a property owner. The state owned the flats under Communism, then it happened there were instantly millions of property owners, a huge increase in wealth. Someone in public housing would take much better care of their flat if they owned it, rather than the state as "benevolent landlord"..

    When we put all this together, we discover that globalist corporations and governments around the world are uniformly supporting the transgender movement. For some corporations, it has cost them dearly, as in the case of the Budweiser fiasco. Yet they are relentless in their promotion of transgenders.

    There are thousands of hypnosis programs out there to “feminize” men into believing they are women with the ability to do everything a woman can do. There are also a myriad of companies offering everything from ketamine assisted hypnosis, hormone therapy, surgery and genitalia maintenance.

    Are we witness to a new industry; the Tranny Industrial Complex?

    As working families around the world struggle to pay their bills and raise their children, governments are using taxpayer funds to aggressively promote the transgender cause. Many transgenders are in a drug-assisted hypnotic state, believing they can menstruate, give birth, and chest-feed. They tell stories of child abuse to school-aged children. They believe they are the mothers of the future; biology and the family unit be damned.

    Is this the new Prussian army, comprising of Uranian Manchurian Candidates. They are hypnotized, drugged, and believing in a world that does not exist?

    I think social media has the effect of dumbing people down to the lowest common denominator. You can always find someone on facebook [or others] to agree with whatever illogical crap your brain can dream up. And the crazier it is, the more attention you can get.

    I think this is driving much of the "trans" movement. If you go on FB and brag about how you are transitioning your 3-year-old, you'll be a major "influencer" in no time.

      It's an interesting paradigm! I often think of that fantastic move "The Truman Show". That movie is fun as heck, but very deep. The bad guy in that story is society. Just a bunch of stupid shlubs with no lives of their own...

        Precisely what me dino got out of watching that flick. Also loved the Truman character gradually figuring out what was up with his actual slavery and freeing himself for doing just that.

    Dear Abaco -- thank you for clearly articulating your situation -- in particular, as you are out on that hike. I am right there with you... except that it's the bears that I am mostly looking for (Wyoming Range ultra-run recently)... I carried a can of bear spray for that adventure.

    Yes -- recall that old saying "Get a Life!" -- it literally means, get your own life (not you Abaco... the gossip mongers).
    Lots of folks wander the earth, a passel of minor mediocrities...
    Covid gave these folks something to do "put on a mask -- get a vax -- stay home, stay safe"...
    It also gave them Meaning and Status "Look, I've got this muzzle on and it's because I CARE... I am Saving Lives!"
    And then there are the pronouns -- it's bad enough to have a world of snowflakes ... now we have noisy little narcissist snowflakes.
    I recently learned that there is an entire "audience" of zeros that watch other zeroes play video games. Let that sink in -- millions of nobodies watching a passel of other nobodies as they play video games. There are also these things called "reaction videos" where a bunch of nobodies watch some movie for for first time and they React and then, of course, you have millions of nobodies reacting to the reactors ... or some such nonsense.

    In my case -- I tend to filter... a better metaphor ... I find "my kind of people" at the top of the distillation stack...
    I meet people at the top of mountains ... Rainier, Shasta, Hood, Adams ... you cannot gossip or crazy or mediocre your way to a glaciated summit. You need to have a rather solid mind and body to get to these remote places. Similar for my running gigs -- when you meet someone at mile 219 of a 250 miler ultra run in central Arizona, that individual is going to be literally separated from the rest of the pack of humanity. Of course, it isn't necessary to get to a mountain summit and risk a crevasse fall or shuffle through a hundred or more miles of an ultra-marathon in order to meet "our kind of people" -- however, as I have observed, it is nearly 100% certain that people you meet On High, have a solid core in their lives. Other avenues to find high-core quality people -- engage with a Master Gardener group ... or Master ABC (could be architects, designers, musicians, etc).

    It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World. I tuned out of the nonsense around 20 years ago ... unplugged ... Red Pill. No red pill rage, just looking at the world from the God's Eye View -- pull the camera back -- way back -- and then open the aperture all the way.

    What's worse is how watching this stuff on TV has created an environment where it is okay...

    Remember when Dick Van Dyke had a separate bed from his wife?

    And now? Everyone is cheating. Having kids without fathers ,etc. etc. And our MIRROR NEURONS pickup on this, and start believing that this is NORMAL.

    It normalizes this sick stuff. Think about the bachelor Show... Now this is how Dating is for "High Value Women". They want to audition and TEST every man they can, to find the best "Trade Up" position for themselves. As if it is a show.

    These screwed up female teachers going after pre-pubescent and adolescent boys.

    (As a guy, we joke... Where were they when I was young? But I have a friend who ended up 16 dating a 28yr old woman who was into drugs. You can make guesses as to how his life turned out. But he had fun... Idiot)

    So happy I turned the TV off years ago.
    But now they are doing this with our other sources. This is what they are upset about. If we don't all get our news from the same source... Who KNOWS what we could believe... LOL

    If I could sum up America 2023 in one word, I would choose "sloth."

    The US will be okay for the rest of the year. It's the happy season. In January, we get back to "normal" and we will see what the new normal is. I can see the rest of the world improving rapidly, but the US, it's not clear. I'd iove to move overseas (for all my work all i need is an internet connection), but i don't trust the Swamp not to seize my pension and SS.via "sanctions" or whatever.

      There are decent places to hide within the US. I heard one guy describe this as "finding higher ground"...

        I'm in a tiny village where the front door is usually unlocked, especially when I leave, only reason I don't leave the keys in the vintagemobile is because I'm afraid I'll accidentally lock the car with the keys in it (the dealer finds it impossible to cough up a spare). I bought a gun during the BLM riots, but I never got around to getting any bullets..

    On a relevant side note.... Several years ago I tried to sit with my wife and watch a bachelorette show. I was so confused! The guys were all staying in one house, fighting with each other with a bunch of verbal jousting, acting all emotional. Then...AND THIS IS WHERE I KNEW I DIDN'T BELONG ANYMORE...They had a contest where the guys had to oil wrestle for the next date with the girl while the guys were wearing these little leather g-string things. I almost threw up. The very next day I was taking to my friend at work Michael. Mike was really a fun guy, and very gay. I mentioned to him my confusion about the episode the night before and he got this "you're such an idiot" look on his face. "Abaco! Those guys are all gay!". The lightbulb went on over my head and I have been forever grateful for Mike's expert input on that... He'd know...

    Strong Women. Strong Mothers. Strong Families

    One of the principal foundations of Western civilization is the strong family unit which underpins it. The family unit allows for children to be protected and raised in accordance with the cultural values that the family embrace. From the moment of birth, a child is loved, nurtured and gradually exposed to the real world that awaits them as an adult. They are taught the daily rituals of cleaning, cooking, and making the bed; they learn critical life-skills that transform a child into an independent and productive member of society.

    The most important factor in creating and maintaining the family unit is the person that brings a baby into the world; the mother. When the world descends into tragedy, chaos and uncertainty, the family unit acts as a shield, and the mother is usually the one holding up that shield. Whether it is broken bones, bad grades, break-ups, or losing a game of football, when tragedy comes into the home, the mother is usually the one that picks the child up, dusts them off, and sends them back out into the world with a renewed confidence.

    Motherhood is no easy task. It requires enormous amounts of strength and resilience. When the world gets ugly, the family unit acts as a refuge, even for the hardest of men. While it is the mothers who work tirelessly to keep the family together, it would not be possible without a society that embraces and encourages strong women.

    Whether it be via academia, careers, politics or sport, a society that allows women to build the life-skills necessary to take on the arduous task of motherhood, is a society that builds strong and resilient women. Strong women are strong mothers. Strong mothers are the backbone of strong families.

    The Nazis had a disdain for the power of the family unit, particularly the women who maintained them. Recall in Part 6, the League of German Girls, which was the girl’s wing of the Hitler Youth movement, were being sexualized. While their fathers were conscripted into the military, their mothers had to work long hours in the factories. The children were left to the state, and many joined the Hitler Youth. Rampant sex amongst teenagers occurred, along with numerous teen pregnancies. The fabric of German society was collapsing in a state-endorsed orgy, as was the family unit.

    Daytime Television played a huge role in the programming of “housewives”.
    Oprah is the devil.
    Incidentally some of the best insights on gay culture have come from gay acquaintances.
    The only reason I’m distrustful of gays is they have a high probability of supporting agendas that include sticking me in the arm with poison and locking me in my own house. Before that….didn’t really have a problem.
