I don't mind a mild feminist, its the sh-tty tattoos that freak ne out, all over the place on their bodies, not even a theme, just ink, here there and everywhere, it tells you what they think of themselves.
1. Focus on what you can control.
2. Do good to feel good.
4. Take a walk.
5. Do Less.
6. Take the time to be grateful.
7. Connect with others.
8. Strenuous exercise.
10. Let go of worry, anxiety, and regret.
11. Realize you have everything you need.
The key is that at least one of the two can do it, and the other one accepts necessary limitations to keep from sending the family to the poorhouse. I did my best, but eventually had to confront Mr. Wife about the fact that money is simply not what I’m good at. Thereafter — until I got sick — I made sure the bills were paid on time, and didn’t spend more than the overall budget, but he managed the stuff. He also trained the trailing daughters on the subject — td #1 is like me, td#2 at seven or eight showed she is like him, so she long ago promised that after he dies she’ll take over for me.
I've never known men to be good with money and fun at the same time.
Now you’re teasing, because of course you have — they just aren’t flashy about it like the other group. There are lots of ways to have fun that cost little to nothing, and the payoff for general frugality is having the funds for the occasional extravagance. What you're talking about is a status display — and it’s the same behaviour for men and women — that results from deliberately spending beyond actual income.
Mrs. Besoeker could squeeze a nichel until the buffalo *****, and I love her for it.
Mr. Wife would love if I could, and I tried, but my mind simply doesn’t work that way.
Mrs C and I have been married 40 years this summer. What we have done to one another not to mention the sacrament isn't for youthful ears. She earned her Phi Beta Kappa key as a gorgeous undergrad and has left them around the countryside like Johnny Appleseed. Someday she will be allowed to handle money again, most probably after my time.
[Babylon Bee] The nation scrambled to buy F-15s and nuclear weapons after President Biden said in a speech Wednesday that you'll never beat a government unless you have the fighter jets and intercontinental ballistic missiles.
All over the nation, American citizens were seen parking their brand-new F-15s in their driveways and garages. Some wealthier Americans purchased the F-22, while less fortunate citizens were forced to buy the F-35 joint fighter. But no matter what craft they chose, American citizens said they were just glad to finally be protected against a tyrannical government.
"I need an F-15 to beat the government? Say no more, fam!" said one man in New Hampshire as he happily rushed out to his local F-15 dealer to pick up the latest model. "Before, I thought my AR-15 would be enough, but when Biden pointed out that the U.S. government has fighter jets and I only have an assault rifle, I realized I really needed to beef up my anti-tyranny defense systems."
"Thanks, Mr. Biden! I sure am glad you reminded me of how brutal a government can be against its own citizens and how governments throughout history have in fact attacked their own people once they are disarmed and helpless."
The man was later seen picking up an M1 Abrams tank.

[American Conservative] Last weekend in Chicago, there were 54 shootings, five of them fatal. This was one of the fatal shootings. Warning: its graphic:

Look at these two dirt bags, just standing there filming it:
Last week, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, who is BLACK, declared that racism is a "public health emergency" in her city, and diverted $10 million in federal Covid funds to fight racism.
Clearly, Chicago's mayor has things well in hand, and has no problem at all facing reality. The Chicago Bears are thinking of relocating to a suburb for a bigger stadium, and Mayor Lightfoot seems more concerned about that than mass murders. Two years ago, she blamed Texas gun laws for Chicago's killing sprees. But Chicago's police superintendent said that same summer that the problem was that the cops keep re-arresting the same thugs, whom the criminal justice system recycle back onto the street.
This is what happens when you elect Woke Democrats to run your city. By the way, Chicago's DA Kim Foxx was backed by leftist billionaire George Soros, who has been pouring his money into electing progressive DAs in big cities. San Francisco DA Chesa Boudin is a Soros acolyte, as is Baltimore DA Marilyn Mosby. All those cities are overrun by crime. Reader Jonah R., who lives in suburban Maryland, left this comment:
On Thursday four young black men drove to a public elementary school in the mostly white, affluent DC neighborhood of Cleveland Park, where they fired more than 40 shots at the school in front of nearly 150 witnesses, hitting two construction workers who were renovating the building and fortunately not hitting any children only because they were in nearby trailer classrooms because of the renovation. The police chased them and caught them when they crashed their car. So far there appears to be no explanation for it other than four black dudes wanted to go randomly shoot up a white school. Let me know if this makes the national news where you live. I'm sure it won't. But this is what happens when criminals feel emboldened by anti-policing rhetoric.
In Baltimore, where the DA has implemented a policy of not prosecuting misdemeanors and low-level crimes, criminals are starting to enjoy a free-for-all environment. The tourist/bar/restaurant neighborhood of Fells Point has seen multiple shootings in the past couple weeks, with one triple shooting occurring just 25 feet from a group of police officers. Some local businesses are refusing to pay their taxes and are putting the money in escrow instead. The neighborhood, already a place for a fun night out at the bars, has been looking like Mardi Gras in recent weeks, but without the cops enforcing laws like they do in New Orleans during Mardi Gras. There's footage of drunks jumping on police cars while the cops just watch. About a week ago, someone went into Fells Point late at night and just randomly shot a bunch of cars. Some restaurants whose owners had been desperate to reopen are closing at 9 p.m. so their employees can get home safely. Some businesses are hiring private security. Police are not enforcing open container laws, parking and traffic regulations, or laws against people openly selling drugs and liquor on the streets. Only in the past few days have the cops come in, but in pointlessly massive numbers, and they've closed streets and manned checkpoints, going to the opposite extreme, as if to spite the neighborhood peons who complained.
I haven't checked the news from Minneapolis lately. Is the community of activist hobos that formed around the site of George Floyd's death still illegally "occupying" the site and inviting anarchy? There were three fatal shootings there in their "autonomous zone" in 2020 and one fatal shooting so far this year.
How about a year of activists trying to burn down federal buildings in Portland? Plus, staffing of the Portland police is at its lowest in decades, and there's been a huge surge of brazen gang violence. According to the AP, Portland disbanded its special unit dedicated to curbing gun violence because activists believed it disproportionately harmed black people.
This is what happens when the "defund the police" chant which is, yes, a fringe activist fantasy becomes policy because people are too afraid to stand up to aggressive activists. I live in a safe multicultural suburb, so I'm fine, but my friends and relatives in cities like DC, Baltimore, and New York are freaking out. You can't for a minute pretend that the rhetoric of the past year didn't play a role in this surge of violence in our cities.
[KhaamaPress] About 20 years ago four planes hijacked and crashed to targets on US soil. Two of them smashed the New York trade center, one targeted the pentagon, and one has been shot downed, and crashed in Pennsylvania before reaching to target allegedly the white house building. the late Osama bin Laden ...... who is now sometimes referred to as Mister Bones...... the leader of al-Qaeda claimed the responsibility while he has been given safe haven by the Taliban ...mindless ferocity in a turban... regime which was running power in Afghanistan. George W. Bush the president of the united states requested the Taliban to hand over him but the Taliban rejected and the US and its allies in NATO

[IsraelTimes] A new poll on American attitudes toward a core conflict in the Middle East finds about half of Democrats want the US to do more to support the Paleostinians, showing that a growing rift among Democratic politicians is also reflected in the party’s base.
The poll from The News Agency that Dare Not be Named-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research finds differences within both the Democratic and the Republican parties on the US approach toward Israel and the Paleostinians, with liberal Democrats wanting more support for the Paleostinians and conservative Republicans seeking even greater support for the Israelis.
The survey also examines Americans’ opinions on the Biden administration (aka the Wilmington comorra) ...knaves, footpads, and adjusters employed by the Biden Crime Family. They leave a trail of havoc everywhere they turn their attention, be it the nation's borders, the Keystone XL Pipeline, or epidemics, sometimes on purpose, most times through sheer arrogant ineptitude. They learnt this stuff in college, you know... ’s handling of the Israel-Paleostinian conflict.
The poll shows Americans overall are divided over US policy toward Israel and the Paleostinians. It also shows more Americans disapprove of President Joe The Big Guy Biden ...46th president of the U.S. Sleazy Dem mschine politician, paterfamilias of the Biden Crime Family... ’s approach to the conflict than approve of it.

Among Democrats, 51% say the US is not supportive enough of the Paleostinians. The sentiment jumps to 62% among Democrats who describe themselves as liberal. On the other hand, 49% of Republicans say the US is not supportive enough of the Israelis, a number that rises to 61% among those who say they’re conservative.
Overall, the poll shows that 29% of Americans say the US is too supportive of the Israelis, 30% say it’s not supportive enough and 36% say it’s about right. In its approach toward the Paleostinians, 25% say the US is too supportive, 32% say it’s not supportive enough and 37% say it’s about right.
The poll found 56% of Americans disapprove of the way Biden is handling the conflict, compared with 40% who approve. While 75% of Republicans disapprove of how Biden is handling the conflict, so do 35% of Democrats.
Forty-two percent of liberal Democrats say they disapprove of how Biden is handling the conflict, compared with 31% of moderate and conservative ones.
That’s compared with just 9% of Democrats who disapprove of how Biden is handling his job in general. Overall, Biden’s job approval rating stands at 55%.
The poll also shows just 19% of Americans think the US should play a major role in finding a solution to the conflict, while 50% say it should play a minor role and 28% say it should play no role. Democrats and Republicans are largely in agreement on the size of the US role in the conflict.
A majority of Americans, 57%, say they think there is a way for Israel and an independent Paleostinian state to coexist peacefully, compared with 39% who say there is not a way. About 2 out of 3 Democrats think there is a way. Republicans are closely divided, with 50% saying there is and 45% saying there is not.
Another stupid poll that doesn't define what "Support" Really involves.
For Progressives it is Free Skittles and Moonbeams...
For Palestinians it is Ethnic Cleansing of all Jews in Israel Palestine.
