Posts Tagged ‘Women’

Dear Readers:  I will be a guest on CANTO TALK tonight, 7 pm PST/9 pm CT — in which I will talk about being a Tea Party Democrat.   To that end, today’s post is a bit of show prep, as well as a continuation of my dialog with with Capt. Capitalism’s wonderful fans: Explaining the Unexplainable. (MUT note: a big THANKS to the Captain who will soon be joining me on Silvio’s show: Also, please check out this fabulous history piece BY a MAN for MEN).

This time, I will be dealing with women.

Veiled Isis in Herbert Hoover Historic Park

Today, Silvio mulled over the following item: I’ve noticed that you’ve writing a bit about women and showing a little frustration with your gender (see HERE and HERE for specific instances). It is true that women in this country seem a little confused, (i.e., their love affair with Barak Obama). ..{A} a lot of women are for Obama and that is hard to understand.

Yes, when women are confused, they do act in confusing ways!

Then, serendipitously, Instapudnit’s gracious wife Dr. Helen opines: Should Men Open Doors for Women?

 I can understand why men no longer want to open doors or help women. I do feel sad, however, that it has come to a situation where society is at this level. In fact, in my forthcoming book on the war against men, I address how our society is breaking down because men no longer want to, or are even afraid to interact with women and girls.

Yes, this is what happens when 50 years of social experimentation replaces 3 million years of finely honed evolution and thousands of years of culture and history. But we are now where we are, so what can we do?

I think women can shake things up. In fact, I think women are shaking things up..and will continue to do so. Let me start by saying women voter shifted Republican in the 2010 mid-terms (except in California, but I vented about that yesterday). Not because Republicans are awesomely awesome, but because they could see how wretched the economy has become under Team Obama.

In fact, most of the nation’s Tea Party groups were started by women, and many are still lead by women. Women, “mama grizzlies”, are often the gate-keepers of the family finance. So, when gas hits the high $3’s per gallon, and decent bread is costing $5/loaf, and they are working 2 part-time jobs to make up for an unemployed/under-employed spouse, women are pretty keen to target the source of economic hardship.

And when the source of that economic hardship plays golf instead of participates in economic briefings, then they will remove that entity.

And, no, as much as many of like good fashion, Anna Wintour endorsements are not going to persuade us President Obama is worth re-electing.

Obama is trying to spread the meme that Romney is leading a “War on Women”. I am a PUMA: I had front row seats for Team Obama’s war on Clinton, then watched it join with the elite media to take-out Sarah Palin. OBAMA IS A 5-STAR GENERAL IN THE WAR ON WOMEN.

Now, will many women vote for Obama? Sure. For example, the women that I know who are committed to doing so are essentially one-issue voters (focused on abortion rights). And, sadly, many who do vote are not fully informed on the issues, and rely on their traditional history of voting Democratic because of “feel good intentions”. But, they are persuadable, as the 2010 mid-terms indicate.

Also, 30% of businesses are owned by women. Like myself, they enjoy a profit and resent the “you didn’t build that” attitude expressed by the Administration.

And, here is another thing that women don’t like: DESPERATION. And the Obama campaign reeks of desperation. Trying to make it seem that Mitt Romney, who cared for his wife during her bout with cancer, doesn’t have compassion and essentially killed the wife of an auto-worker is not the hallmark of a vibrant, healthy campaign.

However, as

Team Obama gets more desperate, this ad is going to seem like the height of good taste when Nov. 6th rolls around. And desperation is never attractive, even for liberal women.

Silvo pondered something, as he was thinking about a dance form he admires:

In tango, the man leads but with incredible care and respect for the woman. He leads but does not push, that’s a big difference. He earns his leadership role and she gladly accepts because she is being treated like a queen the whole time.

She follows but with total trust and understanding that he will pick up her at the end. He will always be there for her……he won’t let her fall.

I don’t know but I think that too many American girls need a class in the kind of chivalry and respect for women behind the tango dance.

Obama’s Julia really needs it. After all, how can you tango without a man?

Which is a great excuse to share a video with my audience:

The best response I could give to Silvio is this: Women are not all one way, or the other, and dancing is not voting. How women behave and vote goes to who they are: Water seeks its own level. Empowered women who take personal responsibility for themselves will vote one way; dependent women who do not wish to make the most of their freedoms and liberties will choose another. Women need to decide who and what they are and what they will tolerate, and vote accordingly…not vote based on feelings and hope it works out for the best.

I have good hope we will not disappoint the good men in this country on Nov. 6th.

To highlight this point, I want to share some punditry from Silvio’s other Angels:

  • From Jeannie-Ology:  Obama Stoops to New Fundraising Lows, discussing the sleazy and disingenuous tactics used to extract money from small donors by Team Obama.
  • Melanie Sturm:  The welfare state — you didn’t build that:  We didn’t build the welfare state, but now that it’s crumbling and imperiling our way of life, we have the opportunity to transform our government so that it will serve us better. Doing so will renew the moral promise inherent in the American Dream while making it accessible to all.
  • Dr. Illeana Johnson-Paugh (Romanian Conservative): My Trip to the Liberal Zoo A pizzeria with its doors opened wide in Italian style invited in both patrons and flies. It was hot, expensive, $4 per slice, and it came with an environmental surcharge added to the bill. I love planting trees and caring for the environment, but I hate when people force me to do something by charging a fee to my bill when I am not paying attention and calling it optional online. It reminds me of the involuntary “volunteer” work forced by the communist party on us every month in the country of my birth.

And, then there are my Circle of Mom friends:

  • Lonely Conservative: While Pandering to Women, Obama Gripes About Michelle Not Getting Paid As First Lady :  President Obama spent part of the day pandering to women. In addition to trying to scare them by saying Mitt Romney will take us back to the 1950′s, he also griped about how Michelle doesn’t get paid for being FLOTUS.
  • SittingOnTheEdge: Blame OzzyThe politicization of what is now being investigated as an act of domestic terror began before we learned the perpetrator’s name.  American Power has twitter feeds of both the prominent figures on the left and rank-and-file twitterers (or whatever you call them) demanding more gun control and blaming Michele Bachmann.  Professor Jacobson reports that “Both CNN and Fox News cut away when the U.S. Attorney took the stage and launched a lengthy speech which sounded like an Obama campaign speech.”
  • NoOneOfAnyImport: An Article Full of Fail  (a great fisking of a trite elite media piece) – I love this particular bit of journalistic fail because it admits the larger failure of the leftist powers-that-be:  without conservative attention, darlings of the left like Fluke would remain unnoticed.
  • PoliticalJunkieMom: Uncomfortable Olympic Go(l)d : I’ve watched so much craziness unfold this week on Facebook over the Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day. People I thought to be rational went nuts calling out others (by name!) for their support of “hate chicken” by arguing that they believe in a loving God. I do, too, but I also believe in a facist-free country that allows others the right to free speech. Apparently some speech is more free than others and “the right to not be made uncomfortable” is tolerated much more than the right to express one’s faith. That’s what makes me uncomfortable.

I hope that my post gives gentlemen everywhere feeling a bit better about the women’s vote! As further proof, I offer this remark from a Las Vegas oddsmaker who says Obama is going to lose by a landslide:

*Suburban moms. The issue isn’t contraception…it’s having a job to pay for contraception. Obama’s economy frightens these moms. They are worried about putting food on the table. They fear for their children’s future. This is not good news for Obama.

One last item:  A piece of advice from the Goddess of Capitalism to the Captain’s single, male fans, that is based in 3 million years of evolution.  If you find a women appealing, before going over, see if you can look her in the eye for 5 seconds.  If she returns your glance (especially with a smile), then go over and chat with her — she is interested.  If she turns around promptly, and looks down at her drink, don’t bother.
