FT215: “Of course the Republicans are the party of ‘no’ because that’s what grownups say to children.” —Old Pithy

Fundamental Truth

Children only care about the Here and Now and Instant Gratification

“Mom, can I eat this whole birthday cake?”  “No.”  “Dad, can I stay up past my bed time?”  “No.”  “Mom, can I go out and play instead of cleaning my room?”  “No.”  “Dad, can I skip my homework and play football with the guys?”  “No.”  “Mom, can I go to the concert with Billy and his big brother?”  “No.”  “Dad, can I use your table saw?”  “No.”  “Mom, will you buy me this micro dress for the dance?”  “No.”  “Dad, can I borrow the car this Friday to drive to a party?”  “No.”  “Mom, can I have boys in my bedroom?”  “Hell no.”  “Dad, can I have $50?”  “For what?”  “Stuff?”  “What kind of stuff?”  “You know, stuff.”  “Oh, in that case, no.”

“No.”  It is the most important word in a parent’s vocabulary.  For kids want to do a lot of things that aren’t good for them.  Things that will get them into trouble.  Things that might hurt them.  Things that may leave them with unpleasant and/or long-lasting consequences.  Parents have to say ‘no’ because kids just don’t know any better.  They only think about the here and now.  Not about the future.  They want instant gratification.  They want to have fun.  They don’t want to wait.  They don’t want to work.  And the last thing they want to do is to delay gratification.

So parents have to keep saying ‘no’ for their children’s own good.  At least, responsible parents do.  Because parents are older and wiser than their children.  Contrary to popular belief children have about their parents.  Children like to say that their parents “don’t know anything.”  But they do.  In fact, they know a lot.  Because they were once impulsive children having the same arguments with their parents.  And now that they are parents they see the world differently than they did as children.  They see it as their parents saw it.  And realize that their parents were right all along.  Thanks to a lot more education, a lot more work experience and a lot more life experience.  The things that makes one wiser as one gets older.

Children who never Grow Up as Adults tend to Remain Liberal and Vote Democrat

Children that grow up into responsible adults tend to be more conservative.  They get jobs.  Straight out of high school.  Or after college.  And party less.  They cut back on reckless behavior.  Such as drinking and driving.  Because they realized they could get a DUI.  They could hurt themselves.  Or, worse, hurt someone else.  If they used drugs they cut back.  Some stop using them completely.  They stop having  casual sex with random people.  In part to avoid an STD.  In part because they want something more than just a good time.  So they, instead, get married.  And settle down.  Raise a family.  And it’s about this time that these one-time wild liberals start voting Republican.  As they see there is a lot more to life than partying with booze and drugs.  And having sex.  Especially when they become parents.

Becoming a parent changes a person.  Single coworkers may still want to go out and get a drink after work.  They may look forward to the weekend so they can drink themselves into a stupor.  But not a married person.  At least, not a married responsible grownup.  They want to go straight home to their wife.  Or husband.  They want to spend time with their kids.  And they don’t want to do anything that could harm their kids.  Like risking their job by coming in late hung over after a night of excessive drinking.  They’d rather get to work early.  Do their job.  And build a successful career.  That is both personally satisfying.  And takes care of their family.  Something sobriety helps.  And our days tend to be easier when they don’t start with a hangover.

Children who never grow up as adults, on the other hand, tend to remain liberal.  Focused on the here and now.  Without a thought about the future.  For them gratification is all that matters.  These people tend to keep the wild ways of their youth.  And those who go on to college take it up a notch.  Away from their parents incessant ‘no’s they can finally say ‘yes’ to everything.  And a lot of them do. They’ll get drunk and video things with their smartphones.  And upload them to the Internet.   The kind of things you once had to go to a pornography store to buy.  But they and their friends will post these videos for all the world to see.  And these things will still be floating around the Internet years later when they’re saying ‘no’ to their own children.  Or interviewing for a job.  Jessie Watters on The O’Reilly Factor has interviewed some of these young college students on spring break.   Asking them questions about history.  International events.  Current events at home.  And if they could identify members of the Federal government.  Few could.  Very few.  Because they have more pressing things in their lives apparently than getting an education.  At least based on what they’re doing with their smartphones.

Democrats only care about the Here and Now and Instant Gratification

Liberal Democrats love these kids.  For they know all they want is to have fun.  So they become the party of fun.  Free birth control.  Access to abortion.  Decriminalizing marijuana.  Anti-religion.  No moral absolutes.  Anything goes.  Even encouraging reckless behavior (they’re going to have sex anyway so we might as well make it easier for them).  Veritable anti-parents.  Who tell these kids that they (these kids) know what’s best for them.  Not their parents.  And if they want instant gratification that’s okay.  You don’t have to worry about the future because if you vote Democrat that’s something else we’ll do for you besides the birth control, abortion, marijuana and the lack of moral constraints.  If you vote Democrat we’ll take care of you from cradle to grave.  Just like that The Life of Julia slideshow promised.  With so little education, work experience and life experience these kids don’t know any better and say, “Okay.  Where do I vote.”

So the Democrats use these kids to stay in office.  They know little so it is easy to lie to them.  About the ‘evil Republicans’ that are as big a killjoy as their parents.  And about how much better the Democrats are going to make their lives.  If only they keep voting Democrat.  So they do.  Because the Democrats offer everything an irresponsible adult could want.  Which is a shame as a lot of what the Democrats offer is bad for the rest of us.  And the country.  Their Keynesian economics fails over and over yet they keep using these failed policies of the past.  Putting the country further into debt.  And further depreciating the dollar.  They lie to these kids about global warming.  Allowing the Democrats to remain in power and pass crippling regulations.  Threatening the coal industry.  As well as increasing our energy costs.  They want to raise the minimum wage for unskilled, entry-level jobs.  Reducing the number of entry level jobs available for those looking to enter the workforce.  And they want to take over our health care.  The best health care system in the world.  Replacing it with something not as good and more costly.

But these grand domestic plans require a lot of money.  Which they often get from gutting the defense budget.  Weakening our military (something they never liked to begin with) to free up money for buying votes (i.e., spending) elsewhere.  They help justify this with a horrible foreign policy.  Instead of peace through (costly) strength they choose a ‘please like us’ foreign policy.  Marginalizing American Exceptionalism.  Being kind to our enemies.  And leaving our allies doubting our commitments.  But if our enemies like us we won’t need a large military anymore.  Allowing them to use those defense dollars elsewhere.  And how has that been working out?  Not good.  Since the ‘please like us’ foreign policy juggernaut Egypt is in chaos.  Syria is in a bitter civil war.  Iran is developing a nuclear bomb.  Israel is feeling abandoned.  Al Qaeda is taking over Libya and Iraq.  The Taliban will return to Afghanistan once the U.S. leaves.    North Korea is test-firing ballistic missiles.  And Vladimir Putin is restoring the Soviet Union.  Because he can.  Thanks to America’s new ‘please like us’ foreign policy.  Instead of the peace through strength of previous presidents.  Like Ronald Reagan.  And JFK.

There’s something else children who never grow up do.  Go into politics.  Into the Democrat Party.  Not the Republican Party.  The party the Democrats derisively call the party of ‘no’.  They join the Democrat Party.  And do all of the things that give us the worst economic recovery since that following the Great Depression.  And a more dangerous world.   Despite this they still want to do more.  Without caring what their actions may do to our future.  Just like children.  All they care about is the here and now.  And instant gratification.  So of course the Republicans are the party of ‘no’ because that’s what grownups say to children.  ‘No’.

Democrats will Condone any Bad Behavior if it advances their Power

Posted by PITHOCRATES - January 4th, 2014

Week in Review

The government has long warned us not to eat or drink things that are bad for us.  They banned Saccharin after mega doses in rats caused cancer.  They then determined that a rat’s physiology is different from humans.  And removed their ban.  They banned the use of Alar (used in apples and other fruits to provide a better harvest) when mega doses proved to be carcinogenic.  The consumption of healthy apples fell.  They told us not to eat eggs as they had cholesterol.  Even though no study showed egg cholesterol was bad for you.  So people quit eating eggs.  And many lost an excellent source of protein.  And it turned out saturated fats play a larger role in our cholesterol levels.  And that eating eggs really doesn’t affect our cholesterol levels.  So we’re eating eggs again.  Because they are good for you.

Mayor Bloomberg wanted to make large sugary beverages illegal in New York.  There have been bans on trans-fats.  They have tried to take toys out of McDonald’s Happy Meals to make them less attractive to children.  And let’s not forget the war on smoking.  They have put pictures of diseased lungs on the packaging to get us to quit.  They have made it illegal to smoke a cigarette pretty much everywhere to protect others from second-hand smoke (though no studies exist showing that there is even a risk due to second hand smoke just as there was no study showing egg cholesterol was bad for you).  They have even discussed bans on third-hand smoke (the ashtray smell you leave behind after smoking).

Government is regulating our lives to save us from ourselves.  Because we engage in behavior too risky for our own good.  Except for two behaviors.  Drugs.  As Colorado has decriminalized marijuana (without any regard to our diseased lungs, second-hand smoke or third-hand smoke).  And sex.  As they give out free birth-control to encourage our young people to have as much sex as they so desire.  And provide access to abortion when that fails.  Despite the slew of venereal diseases all that sex has given our young people.  Including AIDS (see A Resisted Pill to Prevent H.I.V. by DAVID TULLER posted 12/30/2013 on The New York Times).

Over a cup of tea at a downtown Starbucks, Michael Rubio recalled how four friends became H.I.V. positive through unprotected sex, all within a year…

The very existence of that option represents a startling turn in the too-long history of the AIDS epidemic. Many health experts hoped that the medication — Truvada, a combination of two antiviral drugs that has been used to treat H.I.V. since 2004 — would be exuberantly embraced by H.I.V.-negative gay men. Instead, Truvada has been slow to catch on as an H.I.V. preventive in the 18 months since the strategy’s approval by the Food and Drug Administration. In some quarters, the idea that healthy gay men should take a medication to prevent infection — an approach called pre-exposure prophylaxis, or PrEP — has met with hostility or indifference…

For 30 years, public health officials have aggressively promoted condom use during every sexual encounter as the only effective method, apart from abstinence, for preventing H.I.V. transmission. Still, 50,000 new infections are occurring annually in the United States; sexual transmission between men accounts for more than half of them, and a disproportionate number among African-Americans and other minorities.

Many experts hailed Truvada as an opportunity to reduce new infections among high-risk groups like young gay men, people in relationships with H.I.V.-positive partners, and prostitutes. The F.D.A. called for prescriptions to be accompanied by counseling, frequent H.I.V. testing, and continued promotion of safer sex, although research suggests that daily use of the pill alone confers close to full protection.

But a generational shift in attitudes toward H.I.V. among gay men may also be playing a role, some experts say. With advances in treatment, many younger men who did not experience the worst years of the epidemic are less fearful of the consequences of infection. Moreover, current medications can lower viral levels in H.I.V.-positive people to the point where the risk of transmission is negligible, further reducing the perceived need for PrEP among H.I.V.-negative partners…

Certainly, “condom fatigue” among gay men is real. The proportion who reported unprotected anal sex in the previous year rose to 57 percent in 2011 from 48 percent in 2005, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Obamacare will pay for AIDS and HIV treatment.  But will people with AIDS/HIV pay more for their Obamacare?  Probably not.  Smokers will pay more, though.  Despite it being easier to prevent AIDS/HIV than lung cancer from smoking.  For you can still have anal sex without being at risk for catching AIDS/HIV if you wear a condom.  But you can’t smoke without putting yourself at risk every time.  Because when you smoke you pull in that cancer-causing smoke into your lungs.  Yet as preventable as AIDS/HIV is 57% of gay men have unprotected sex.  Which you can’t define as anything but willful and dangerous behavior.

But the left has no harsh words for the gay community.  Unlike they do for smokers.  Why?  Because the gay community votes Democrat.  As do young people.  Who believe that 30% or more of the population is gay.  While a 2010 study by the Williams Institute put the number at 3.5%.  But the young believe that 3 out of every 10 people (instead of 3.5 out of 100) identify themselves as lesbian, gay, or bisexual.  And want to be progressive and enlightened and cool and so unlike their parents that they want to show their enlightened support for them.  Which is another reason why they vote Democrat.  In addition to the sex and drugs the Democrats encourage.

Until gay men wear condoms all of the time or abstain from willful and dangerous unprotected anal sex AIDS/HIV will spread.  (If these young gay men were in monogamous relationships they wouldn’t be spreading AIDS/HIV).  And it won’t be just in the gay community.  Thanks to bisexuals, intravenous drug users and prostitutes the disease will migrate to others who think they are being progressive and enlightened to have as much sex as the Democrats encourage them to have.  Guaranteeing a large voting block for the anti-parents (i.e., Democrats) come Election Day.  And they don’t care how many lives they destroy in the process.  But if you want to enjoy a cigarette or a big juicy burger look out.  They are coming after you and your reckless lifestyle.  Unless, of course, you’re smoking a marijuana cigarette.  And eating that big greasy burger afterward because you have the munchies.  Because there’s nothing wrong with that lifestyle.  Because you’re likely a Democrat voter.

The temperance movement took off in large part due to the STDs husbands brought home to their wives after drinking away their paychecks at the local saloon.  And then making bad decisions when drunk.  Like spending what money they didn’t spend on alcohol on prostitutes.  Bringing home syphilis to many an unsuspecting wife.  Who passed it on to their unborn children.  It was the progressives that try to put a stop to that with Prohibition.  Including women like Susan B. Anthony.  Now look at the progressives.  Who are a far cry from those who once wanted to protect women and children.  Who now champion some of the most dangerous behavior women and children can face.  Sex and drugs.  Just to win elections.  Something Susan B. Anthony would not likely approve of if she were alive today.

Liberals don’t Win Elections in the Arena of Ideas

Posted by PITHOCRATES - June 20th, 2013

Politics 101

Public Schools teach Kids that Republicans are Racist Homophobes who hate Children, Poor People and Immigrants

Americans are historically conservative.  Gallup shows that approximately 40% +/- of the people call themselves conservative.  While only approximately 20% +/- call themselves liberal.  Most of the rest call themselves moderates.  Gallup shows this as a general trend from 1992 through 2011 (see Conservatives Remain the Largest Ideological Group in U.S. by Lydia Saad posted 1/12/2012 on Gallup).  Yet President Obama is a liberal pushing liberal policies.  So how did a conservative nation vote in such a liberal president?

Well, there are the usual suspects.  The public schools are teaching our children to be liberal.  Thanks to teacher unions.  Who contribute generously via their union dues to the Democrat Party in return for favorable policies from the Department of Education.  So our public schools work to ‘free’ our children’s minds from the influence of their parents.  The push for public-funded childcare is just a way to get our children away from their parents sooner.  For the younger they start the longer their education/indoctrination will last.

While our kids are in our public schools they learn the ‘important’ things.  Global warming is a reason to tax and regulate business.  Capitalism is unfair and evil.  Government is good.  While glossing over the Founding Fathers and their creation of a government based on the assumption that government is bad.  And the less of it the better the people were.  No.  Our kids don’t learn that.  Instead they learn worthless things and come out of our schools knowing very little about their country.  Or their government.  Just watch Watters’ World on The Factor.  And listen to how little our young people know when Jesse Watters asks some basic questions.  You’ll get the ‘deer in the headlights’ look when asked a question school children could have answered a generation or two earlier.  But despite their lack of knowledge on anything that isn’t trending in social media they will tell you that Fox News is biased.  And that Republicans are racist homophobes who hate children, poor people and immigrants.  Which is why they vote Democrat.

Democrats expand the Welfare State to get People Dependent on Government Benefits

So there’s public education.  And for those who go on to college our public universities will pull these kids even further left.  Then there’s the mainstream media.  Which is liberal.  Reinforcing everything our kids heard in school.  And all the people they look up to in the entertainment world tend to be liberal.  Further reinforcing what these young people heard in school.  Even though only 20% call themselves liberal that 20% is a young person’s world.  So a liberal view does not seem like the minority view it is to them.  Which is why they vote Democrat.

Then there are public sector unions.  And labor unions.  Who have a vested interest in keeping Democrats in office.  These unions collect dues from their members.  And spend a large portion of those dues to help Democrats win elections.  In return these Democrats implement union-favorable policies.  Also, these union members will act as foot soldiers during elections.  Helping to get out the vote.  Making phone calls.  Going door to door.  And helping to get people to the polls to vote Democrat.

Democrats also try to expand the welfare state.  To get people dependent on the government.  So these people look to government as their sole provider.  And after awhile being dependent on the government these people become completely dependent on the government.  And fear losing their government benefits.  For after being out of work for so long the thought of reentering the workforce is frightening.  Which Democrats tell them Republicans want to do.  They want to take away their benefits.  And force them into hamburger-flipper jobs.  Which Democrats point out are beneath them.  Even if they have no education or jobs skills beyond entry level employment.  So they vote Democrat.  To protect their benefits.

Liberals win Elections by Indoctrination, Quid Pro Quo, Dependency, Fear, Patronage and Abuse of Power

But it doesn’t end with simply getting people dependent on government benefits.  They implement policies that attack and destroy conservative institutions that encourage people to stand on their own two feet.  So they just don’t have to rely on people’s desires and wants.  But can tap into their fears.  Which is why FDR passed Social Security into Law.  And why LBJ expanded Medicare.  For these two great liberals knew they could make the elderly permanent Democrat voters by putting the fear of God in them that Republicans will cut their Social Security and Medicare benefits.  So a large percentage of seniors vote Democrat.  As they won’t be able to pay their bills or see a doctor if they lose their Social Security and Medicare benefits.  Because they trusted the government to provide for them in retirement.

And then there’s Obamacare.  Which will do to all non-seniors what Social Security and Medicare did to seniors.  Put the fear of God into them that Republicans will kill them by cutting their Obamacare benefits.  But it’s more than just the fear.  Obamacare will require a massive bureaucracy.  Layers of new government jobs.  Public sector union jobs.  Which will do what public sector unions and labor unions do on a grand scale.  But the big way Obamacare can help Democrats win elections is having the IRS enforce it.  Having the IRS determining who is eligible for a subsidy.  Determining how much someone can afford to pay for their Obamacare.  And determining how much to fine someone.  Allowing the IRS to ‘Tea Party’ the political opposition.

This is how liberals win elections.  Not by winning in the arena of ideas.  But by indoctrination, quid pro quo, dependency, fear, patronage and using the power of the executive branch for political ends.  They’ve become everything the Founding Fathers feared.  Who wrote the Constitution specifically to prevent things like this from happening.  Who didn’t believe the Constitution was a living document for future generations to interpret and adjust for the times.  Because they didn’t write it to give people stuff.  They wrote it to restrict the powers of the federal government as much as possible.  Because it is government’s nature to oppress and abuse her people.  So you don’t want them to have a lot of power.  For Lord Acton’s words are just as true today.  Power corrupts.  And absolute power corrupts absolutely.  Something at least 40% of the American people understand.

Our Daughters are Paying the Highest Price for the Democrats’ Sexual Revolution

Posted by PITHOCRATES - May 11th, 2013

Week in Review

Parents spend a lot of time telling their kids ‘no’.  Telling them not to smoke, drink or do drugs.  And to wait until they are more mature before having sex.  That’s why the Democrat Party attracts the youth vote.  They are so not like their parents.

Democrats talk to our kids as if they are mature adults.  Who want to help them to have sex by providing free birth control and access to abortion.  Making the morning-after pill available to girls as young as 15 without a prescription.  Even making contraception a women’s health issue during the 2012 election.  Saying the Republicans wanted to make people pay for their own birth control.  Which was, of course, code for taking it away.

For Republicans wanted to force women into loveless marriages.  Turning them into baby factories.  They didn’t want to empower women.  They wanted to imprison women.  Because they hate women.  While the Democrats love women.  (Some more than others.)  Even encouraging them to explore their sexuality.  (Preferably with enlightened Democrats who love women).  Which was how you empowered a woman.  Letting her have consequence-free sex.  And if she develops a consequence there are things she could do to get rid of that consequence.  With all of these resources available courtesy of Democrats there was nothing limiting the amount of sex young people could have.  Making the Democrat Party the party for them.  Which is why the Democrats remain the party of women.  Even though their policies end up destroying women’s lives (see Sex Superbug Could Be ‘Worse Than AIDS’ by Mark Koba posted 5/2/2013 on CNBC).

An antibiotic-resistant strain of gonorrhea—now considered a superbug—has some analysts saying that the bacteria’s effects could match those of AIDS.

“This might be a lot worse than AIDS in the short run because the bacteria is more aggressive and will affect more people quickly,” said Alan Christianson, a doctor of naturopathic medicine…

“Getting gonorrhea from this strain might put someone into septic shock and death in a matter of days,” Christianson said. “This is very dangerous…”

According to the CDC, about 20 million a year contract a sexually transmitted disease (STD) and result in about $16 billion in medical costs. More than 800,000 of STD cases reported are gonorrhea infections, with most occurring in people between the ages of 15 and 24.

Gonorrhea is transmitted through unprotected sexual contact. Untreated, the disease can cause a number of health complications in women, including infertility. In men, the disease can be very painful and lead to sterility. It can also trigger other life-threatening illnesses, including heart infections.

Gonorrhea can be hard to detect. It often shows no symptoms in about half of women and in about 5 percent of men. Gonorrhea infection rates were at historic lows until two years ago, according to the CDC…

But Smith said more needs to be done. In a briefing on Capitol Hill last week, he urged Congress to target nearly $54 million in immediate funding to help find an antibiotic for HO41 and to conduct an education and public awareness campaign.

“I’m hopeful we’ll get the additional funds, but I can’t say for sure,” Smith said. “What I do know is we don’t have the resources to fight this as it stands now.”

Avoiding the disease completely is the best course, experts said.

We actually have an education and public awareness campaign.  We call it parenting.  And if the Democrats haven’t been undermining parents in their parenting perhaps these kids would listen to them.  But it’s hard to tell your kids to wait until you’re older and more mature before having sex when the government is providing free birth control in our high schools.  And providing the morning-after pill to girls as young as 15 without a doctor’s prescription or parental notice.  Because kids will be kids.

And then you have a liberal curriculum put together by the radicals of the Sixties.  Teaching them to be different than their parents.  Even blaming their greedy parents for trying to kill the planet with global warming.  And attacking religion and our traditions as backward relics of a medieval past.  The 1950s.  So thanks to government and our educational system our parents have little moral authority with their kids.  Who would much rather listen to their teachers, professors and government when it comes to sex.  Because they say it’s okay.  Which is why there has been an explosion in STDs (See Sex and the Superbug by Jerome Groopman posted 10/1/2012 on The New Yorker).

The sexual revolution of the nineteen-sixties ushered in rising rates of gonorrhea, as condoms, which effectively prevent transmission, were abandoned in favor of oral contraceptives. Only after the risk of death from AIDS began to increase, in the nineteen-eighties, did condom use again become a norm. A federally funded gonorrhea-control program, started in 1972, perhaps made a difference; by 1997, the number of yearly cases of gonorrhea reported to the C.D.C. had fallen by nearly three-quarters compared with its peak, in 1975. In 2009, the number of gonorrhea cases in the U.S. was at an all-time low. “Ten or fifteen years ago, we thought it was going to be eradicated in some Western countries,” Unemo told me…

The microbe carries specialized proteins that help it attach firmly to the surface of cells and other proteins that blunt a host’s immune-system response and prevent white blood cells from ingesting and degrading it. Together, these tools grant the gonococcus the ability to fasten to and invade the cells that line the human urethra, cervix, rectum, and throat, and the lining of the eyelid and eye.

In some respects, N. gonorrhoeae is a fragile organism; dry conditions, changes in temperature, and the ultraviolet rays in sunlight destroy it. As a result, it is transmitted only through intimate contact with body fluids; it doesn’t thrive on inanimate objects and can’t be picked up from toilet seats. Yet it is far more contagious than H.I.V. A woman who has unprotected sex with an H.I.V.-infected man has roughly a one-in-a-thousand chance of contracting the virus. The transmission rate among gay men having anal sex is an order of magnitude higher, about one in a hundred. In contrast, with gonorrhea a man has a twenty-five-per-cent chance of catching the microbe from an infected partner. For women, the odds are as high as sixty-six per cent.

The pill liberated women.  And many unsuspecting women did not believe they had to be careful anymore.  So they weren’t.  They took their oral contraceptives.  And if that failed they could get an abortion starting in 1973.  Making the Seventies a magical time for men who wanted to play the field.  And they did.  Spreading disease.  And it was the women who suffered the most from their sexual appetites.  As an infected man infects two out of three women he has sex with.

Interestingly, the resurgence in gonorrhea corresponded with the Democrats winning the White House in 2008.  With President Obama, Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House (until the 2010 midterm election) and Harry Read as majority leader in the Senate the country could move further to the left than ever before.  There was nothing the Republicans could do to stop them.  Case in point: Obamacare.  Which is replete with free preventative health care measures that include birth control and abortion.  The left was giddy with joy.  And apparently they celebrated their even more consequence-free sex lives, appropriately, in the sack.

In effect, the human pharynx is a spawning ground for resistance… And, because pharyngeal gonorrhea rarely produces symptoms, it is more likely both to go untreated and to be passed on unknowingly.

A driving factor behind the rise in gonorrhea infections, as well as the trend toward total antibiotic resistance, is our complacent attitude toward oral sex…

In many circles, however, especially since the era of H.I.V., oral sex has been embraced as a safe alternative to intercourse… Recent statistics from Los Angeles County suggest that the proportion of pharyngeal to genital gonorrhea cases among adolescents has increased sevenfold since 1988…

According to the C.D.C., adolescents and young adults account for nearly half of all new cases of sexually transmitted disease, even though the group represents just twenty-five per cent of the sexually active population. The adaptive nature of the gonococcus, coupled with the prevalence of unprotected oral sex, all but insures that drug-resistant gonorrhea will eventually take root in the general heterosexual population. Unemo warned, “When you get into the population of young heterosexuals, it can very quickly spread.”

It turns out that consequence-free sex has some serious consequences.  And these numbers are just shocking.  Only 25% of the sexually active population is responsible for nearly half of all new STDs.  The adolescents and young adults.  Who overwhelmingly vote Democrat.  A demographic exploited by the Democrats to remain in power.  No matter how many lives they destroy.  And yet they say the Republicans have a War on Women.  Those sexual prudes who want their kids to refrain from having as much sex as the Democrats are encouraging them to have.  Because they fear for the wellbeing of their children.  As they understand the risks of sexual activity.  They try to be good parents and protect their children.  Especially their daughters who are paying the highest price of the Democrats’ Sexual Revolution.  But it’s difficult to do when government and our educational system is fighting so strenuously to turn their kids against their parents.

FT144: “The longer a woman stays single the longer she may vote Democrat.” —Old Pithy

Posted by PITHOCRATES - November 16th, 2012

Fundamental Truth

Married Women appear to be just as Interested in Sex, Birth Control and Cancer Screening as Single Women

By now we’ve all heard about how single women voted for Democrat President Obama more than they did for Republican Mitt Romney.  And how married women voted for Republican Mitt Romney more than they did for Democrat President Obama.  People are furiously debating why this happened.  This is a question Bill O’Reilly tried to get an answer from liberal Democrat guests on his show The O’Reilly Factor.  Why two women the same age with similar backgrounds vote differently based on their marital status.  The answers he got generally fell back to the war on women meme.

The war on women basically says Republicans don’t care about issues important to women.  Birth control, abortion, cancer screening, etc.  Which didn’t really answer the question.  For married women and single women are both women.  Who should both care about these women’s issues equally.  But they don’t.  If it’s these women’s issues that drove single women to vote for President Obama then apparently married women don’t care about birth control, abortion, cancer screening, etc.  Based on the average family size of 2.62 children in 2010 it would appear that married women are using birth control.  Or abortion.  Who no doubt want to screen for cancer so they can be there to see their children grow up.  And see their grand children.  Or else they’re only having sex to procreate.  Losing all interest in sex once they marry.  Of course the booming sales of Fifty Shades of Grey, often dubbed mommy porn, says otherwise.

So married women appear to be just as interested in sex as single women.  So the women’s issues (birth control, abortion, cancer screening, etc.) should be just as important to them as they are to single women.  So there has to be something else that differentiates single women from married women.  And that can only be that there are other issues that are even more important to married women than these issues that are so important to single women.

There is a Lot of Evidence out there that Despite the Women’s Movement a lot of Women still Want to Marry

Feminists launched the women’s movement to free women from the hell of wedded bliss.  To let them do whatever men did.   To have a career.  And to have a lot of indiscriminate sex.  Which was the purpose of the birth control pill.  Allowing the hippie love-ins of the Sixties and Seventies.  Freeing women from being second-class citizens.  Stuck at home raising a bunch of kids, cleaning house, cooking and satisfying the disgusting sexual needs of their husbands.  For that was all marriage was.  And is.  Unless you’re gay.  Then it’s a beautiful expression of love between two people.  But for heterosexual women marriages is just awful.  According to the feminists.  For men are pigs.  And always will be.  Of course, it’s a lot easier for men to be pigs these days thanks to the women’s movement.  For they can love and leave a lot more women that they once could thanks to birth control.

So are women happy?  Is this what they want?  To be free from the hell of wedded bliss?  Probably not.  For the brides magazines still sell well.  There are reality shows about brides picking out their dresses.  Some of which costs tens of thousands of dollars.  Celebrity women spend even more.  And like marriage so much that some marry, divorce and marry again.  There are reality shows where women compete against other women to win the affections of a man to marry.  And a reality show where men compete compete against other men to win the affections of a woman to marry.  There are online dating sites that advertise that their matches end in more marriages than the competition.  People still go to singles’ meeting places seeking their future significant other.  And a lot of women complain that the men they date don’t want to get married and raise a family.  As many of them seem more interested in loving and leaving as many women as possible.  Greatly distressing women as their biological clocks tick away.  Wanting to get married before it’s too late to have children.  So there is a lot of evidence out there that despite the women’s movement a lot of women still want to marry.

Women who suffer marriage infidelity are not happy women.  While they may date men who are dating a lot of women and enjoying a lot of sex with these different women obviously expect that behavior to cease once married.  And rightly so.  But some men can’t seem to control themselves.  In part because of the women’s movement.  Which has encouraged women to use birth control and empower herself by enjoying life.  Like a man.  Doing what you want.  When you want.  One of the problems of that, though, is that it tells a lot of men that there are a lot of women out there empowering themselves.  Women that men think just want consequence-free sex.  Which is okay for these women empowering themselves.  But these men?  They’re nothing but a bunch of pigs with only one thing on their minds.  And it isn’t getting married and raising a family.  Or being faithful to their wives.

Liberals know how Women change their Voting Habits once they Marry so they help Women Remain Single

It’s clear that women want to get married.  And want to have children.  Even celebrities are proudly showing off their baby bumps in the tabloids during their pregnancies.  Suggesting that marriage and motherhood are things that women want.  And little girls’ dreams of meeting their Prince Charming and having a big wedding don’t fade with time.  For when they become women they start buying those brides magazines.  Planning their big day.  They look forward to wedded bliss.  And after they’re married if the passion fades it doesn’t mean their sexual desires fade. At least not based on the massive sales of that mommy porn.  Fifty Shades of Grey.  And with the average family size down to 2.62 children in 2010 these married women are using birth control or getting abortions.  And probably don’t want cancer.

So there isn’t a lot of difference between single women and married women.  At least when it comes to these women’s issues.  Yet they voted differently.  Why?  Well, there’s the obvious.  Single women support themselves, are not raising a family and typically don’t own a house.  While married women typically have a working spouse, are raising a family and live in a house.  So what does that mean?  Married women have greater expenses and pay property taxes.  So they are a lot more sensitive to taxes.  Deficit spending.  And debt.  Because they have to be very sensitive to spending and debt in their households.  And married women tend to base their decisions on what’s best for their children.  And their grandchildren.  Whereas single women tend to base their decisions on what’s best for them.  Because they are the only ones they are providing for.  Of course, once they marry and start raising a family that all changes.  Which brings us to another reason that is perhaps not as obvious.

Liberals know how women change their voting habits once they marry.   Which hurts their hold on power.  As liberals make up only about 21% of the population.  While conservatives make up about 42% of the population.  With moderates make up the remaining 37%.  Which requires liberals to patch together a coalition of special interest groups to advance their agenda.  And part of their strategy is getting as many women as possible to vote Democrat.  And one very successful way of doing that is by helping women remain single.  To try and suppress their dreams of that fairy tale wedding they’ve had since they were little girls as long as possible.  Or to destroy it.  By making birth control and abortion readily available.  So they can have a career.  And satisfy their sexual desires.  With no need of settling down with, or settling for, a husband.  For those whose birth control fail the government steps in to provide for these single mothers.  To help them raise their children as single women.  To discourage them from getting married.  All the while scaring them that Republicans will take away all of their financial support.  Forcing them onto the streets.  Or into a marriage.  And the only way to prevent that from happening is, of course, by voting Democrat.  And staying single.  Which is what liberals want.  For the longer a woman stays single the longer she may vote Democrat.

Stupid Republicans Help Smart Democrats Lose Elections

Posted by PITHOCRATES - November 22nd, 2010

Figures don’t Lie, but Liars Figure

Is a 70 degree Fahrenheit a warm day?  Or a cold day?  It depends on your perspective.  If you’re from Norilsk, Russia, you’d probably say it’s warm.  If you’re from Al’Azizyah, Libya, you’d probably say it’s cold.  70 degree Fahrenheit is a fact.  But it means different things to different people.  And neither the Russian nor the Libyan is wrong.  Weather is relative.

The Republicans won control of the House of Representatives, a majority of the state governorships and a majority of the state legislatures in the 2010 midterm elections (see Election 2010 posted on The New York Times for election results).  Some say this is a rejection of the Obama/Pelosi/Reid agenda.  Some say the Democrats lost so much because the Obama/Pelosi/Reid agenda did not go far enough.

Interesting, huh?  The same data reviewed by different people who then reach such different conclusions.  Are the election results as relative as the weather?  Or is Mark Twain closer to the truth?  “Figures don’t lie, but liars figure.” 

Old, Stupid White Men Vote Republican?

There is a political divide across the country.  You can see it when you look at the election map.  The nation is mostly red.  With some blue on the coasts.  And around the big cities in between.  I look at that and I have an idea why it looks like that.  The Washington Post, on the other hand, has a different interpretation (see Political divide between coasts and Midwest deepening, midterm election analysis shows by T.W. Farnam, Washington Post Staff Writer, posted 11/21/2010 on The Washington Post).

The Republican Party’s big gains in the House came largely from districts that were older, less diverse and less educated than the nation as a whole. Democrats kept their big majorities in the cities.

Translation?  Old, stupid white men vote Republican.  I see it differently.  What are big cities full of?  Poor people.  And welfare.  Big city governments.  With big union pay and benefits.  Big bureaucracies that employ the unemployable and increase the costs of doing business.  Big universities.  University professors.  University students.  Art museums.  Theatres.  A liberal and libertine party atmosphere (which draws the young).  Teen pregnancy.  Abortions.  STDs.  Drug addicts.  Prostitutes.  Etc.

The Obama coalition remained intact. Democrats remained strong in areas with the party’s core of minorities and higher-educated whites. But movement of white working-class voters away from the party is a concern for Democrats, especially because of President Obama’s traditional weakness with those voters.

Higher-educated whites?  Yeah, right.  A lot of those degrees are from the big universities in the big cities.  Women’s studies.  Art History.  Philosophy.  American Studies.  English Lit.  Communications.  Poetry.  And, of course, Law.  Very popular with the anti-business crowd.  And, as it turns out, very unpopular with actual businesses. 

Higher educated, perhaps.  But an education that has little market value.  So they end up working for a nonprofit dependent on government funding.  Or work as another piece of deadwood in a bloated government bureaucracy.  Or file frivolous lawsuits and are dependent on government NOT to reform tort law.

“There’s definitely been a hardening of Democratic support along the coasts since 1994,” said James Gimpel, a political scientist at the University of Maryland.

New York City, Boston, Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles.  Coastal cities.  Homes of the uber liberal.  Here they sip their lattes and look down their noses at flyover country. They’re only 20% of the population.  But when you concentrate 20% of the population in these small geographical areas, those areas will have liberal majorities.  While at the same time if you pull that 20% out of the rest of the country, that big geographical area they call flyover country is left conservative.

The Poor, Unemployable and Irresponsible Vote Democrat

It’s not that Republicans are old, stupid white men.  Democrats have lost so much of the country because they and their agenda don’t appeal to people who have jobs.  So who do they appeal to?  The poor, unemployable and irresponsible.  And lawyers.  Who all tend to be anti-business.  Like the Democrat Party.

Saying the reason why you lose elections is because the electorate is stupid is figuring with facts.  The facts say otherwise.  Besides, when the young is a strong demographic for you, you kind of lose that argument.  Young people are uneducated and inexperienced.  Young people fill our Colleges.  And they’re going there not because they’re smart.  They’re there going to get ‘smart’.

Meanwhile, the higher educated liberals often have those useless degrees.  Because they care about people, not profits.  So they don’t do anything so coarse as to get a degree that might help a business earn a profit.  Instead, they’ll subsist off of government funding.  Or by suing businesses for unearned wealth.
