Overnight Open Thread

I don’t wear women’s clothes or take women’s vitamins so why would I go to a women’s march?

    People from Cuba are escaping from a hell-hole 90 miles off our coast. As far as I know, Cuban refugees have not vowed to kill us at their first opportunity. While they retain some of their culture, they assimilate to our public expectations for American citizens. They don’t ask us to change our culture to match theirs. If we absorbed the entire population of Cuba, just over 11 million people, it would be about as many people as have fled Syria to date. The difference is the island would be vacant and the influx of Cubans would stop. Then we could claim Cuba and turn it into a vacation paradise with cool old cars.

    Best comment from the Twitchy bit on the women only anti-trump march:

    I know, right? Its like going to an “Ex-Wives Convention”.
    Most guys would rather mast*rbate with a cheese grater.

    What’s the point of calling it a million women’s march if they need men?

    • elliesmom says:

      Just like so many “women’s marches”, this one has been eaten by “intersectionality”. Women are not a political monolith, and rather than focus on issues common to an over-riding majority of women, the organizers allow special interests some of the women have to take over. Any march for abortion rights, to right racial inequities, to push for immigration amnesty, or to promote rights for Lesbians and transgender women will turn off some women. Add them all up, and you lose a majority of them. Where women have been most successful have been in areas common to all women, like the right to vote, the right to own property, to have financial independence, access to education, and the right to work at any job they have the skills to handle. Fifty three percent of white women voted for Trump. The second this became anti-Trump march, the march became not a woman’s march. So, of course, they need men. But most men who show up will come with their own agendas. I doubt many of them will be wearing pussy hats. 😉

    Nice interview with Nicole, about her new movie and her family. Yay, an actress I can continue to like. (The Trump discussion is at the end.)

    Glenn Greenwald on Tucker tonight. when the video becomes available it is worth watching.
    he talks about why the CIA was against trump and for clinton

  7. helenk3 says:

    didn’t the woman that came up with the idea of the march drop out after it became a bitchfest with everybody having their own agenda?
    It started out as I am Woman hear me roar and turned into I am Woman watch me stamp my feet

      It is a family custom to leave our tree up until my mother’s birthday, Jan 15. Now that my mother is gone, I leave the tree and decs up in her memory. Lucky thing her birthday was in January. 😉

      See, now I thought electing a man who hires women into positions of power and pays them very well and makes no big deal of it because it’s his normal way of doing business was a major win for women. I can keep a guy’s hands out of where they don’t belong on my own, thank you very much, but a boss who really treats women equally isn’t as easy to find. Ask the women who work for the Clinton Foundation.

      • You might find this . . . uh . . . interesting:

          The article is dead right about a lot of things. When I returned to full time work after I got my youngest in school, I went to work for a large Japanese company. I came into the company through HR where I was specifically hired to help bring more women into the engineering ranks. My boss in HR told me to hold out one job for myself when we reached full staffing. With full knowledge of what I was getting into, I chose a job that reported directly to one of the Japanese nationals, and I was the only woman in an engineering position who did. While we got along fine on an inter-personal level, it was challenging to gain his respect for my work. Initially I had to fight very hard to get interesting assignments, and while he was fair in respect to giving me praise when I earned it among the people in the Boston office, when his superiors from Japan arrived to evaluate our progress, he usually arranged for me to be out of the office that week. I got some good training classes and fun business trips. He didn’t want them to know he relied on a woman for major projects. With them he took full credit for everything I did although he didn’t do it to the young Japanese engineers. HR was very careful to make sure I was well compensated because there were so many things I could have called my boss out for, but creating a boss who respected women in the workplace was really my job. After I had brought my engineering skills back to where they would have been had I not left the workplace to be Mom for awhile, I eased myself out the door to a job that was just an engineering job, but the experience I got training Setti-san was invaluable to me. One of the things I learned was it really is about doing a job well when the job is important. Success gets you a lot more than whining.

            Success is founded in:

            1) Can-do attitude
            2) Diligence
            3) Continuous Learning
            4) Trustworthiness

            They can be given to no one, only encouraged, and their opposites discouraged.
            They apply to all, regardless of age, gender, or ethnicity.

    Idiot lefties are boycotting LL Bean because of a board member’s support of Trump — I just ordered a nice messenger bag from them. I was looking for one, but hadn’t considered LL Bean before. It was a $100 but they are running a $25 off of $100 or more (SNOW25 is promo code), so I got it for $75.

    Not tired of winning yet.

    • swanspirit says:

      Everything they make is very high quality.

      • Venus says:

        My LL Bean backpack made it through high school, college, my summer backpacking trip through Europe when I graduated, and law school. It’s STILL in great shape, but it’s sitting in my closet as I don’t have a need for a back pack anymore.

      • elliesmom says:

        Elliesdad pretty much lives in LL Bean. My grandson is using my LL Bean book pack from college. A member of the Bean family could be a cannibal, and I’d probably still shop there.

    • DandyTIger says:

      I’m thinking LLBean is going to “suffer” the same way Chick-Fil-A has. 🙂

    • mothy67 says:

      What an amazing amount of free advertising.

    • Miranda says:

      I used to like Land’s End, but their quality tanked. Now, the majority of my clothes come from LL Bean, and I’ve always been happy with them.

      • lateblum says:

        I agree. I was a Land’s End customer and Eddie Bauer, too. But for the last 8 – 10 years, it’s been LL Bean for me as well. Their quality is so much better. I bought a shirt yesterday just because of the kerfuffle.

    • cynic says:

      We have loved LL Bean for more than 30 yrs., and have their VISA card. When you purchase anything using their card, you get back credit toward future purchases. For years, we were able to purchase the kids book bags and snowsuits, and it didn’t cost us anything (any monogramming was free).

      Hubby is tall, and loves that the clothes come in the tall size. For me, at this time, am wearing their pj’s and robe.

      We love their stuff.

    What the serious fuck?

    • Lulu says:

      The Telegraph’s version is different. Jeb Bush ordered it and needed a cutout to separate the Bushes from the crap and disseminate it to ruin Trump so they used ex-MI6 stooge and his Blairite globalist contacts in the permanent UK government. McCain was used as a part of the cutout to spread it around. The Brits are nervous as White Hall globalists were part of it apparently and knew all of it as well as ok’ed it. The oppo research was given by ex-pat Russians who are notoriously full of shit to curry favor as anti-communist/Putin in the west so they don’t have to go back to Russia and face trial for theft, murder, arms trafficking, etc. It is a trail of slime leading back to the failure Jeb.

    Btw, just found out through my college alumni newsletter, mad dog mattis graduated from my college, central Washington university! The newsletter writer is proud of his nomination and speaks of him highly. He was even commencement speaker a few years ago. Yay! We’ve now had an astronaut, an nfl quarterback, and a general among many other high quality grads.

    • kanaughty says:

      I still hate how the progs made fun of palin because she went to a state school. Nit everyone is made of money or have ivy league legacy accounts to get them in. She worked hard to get into the biggest state school in the state. State colleges, the big ones, are not exactly cheap either or they can even run out of room and not be able to admit you if your sats were not perfect (like UW sometimes)! She earned her way in. I am sick of the elitism in those coastal and city bubbles. They are clueless too how condescending they can be. It is like a long let them eat cake type moment going on with those elites against regular americans.

        You’ve just described my east coast family. They really are condescending intellectual snobs as well as bleeding hearts who cannot grasp how very bigoted they are.

    “Men are slow to show support for the Women’s March. Is it considered unmasculine?”

    Note that it’s immediately framed as a gender conflict, as if we don’t show support because we’re misogynistic knuckledraggers.

    To illustrate the problem, back when Obama and Hillary were vying for the Dem nomination for presidential candidate, my Hispanic boss asked us guys if we would ever support a black or a woman for president. I immediately did a fist pump and declared, “Condi Rice! In a heartbeat!”, to hearty laughter of approval all around. Question answered; case closed; gender and race were irrelevant.
