    There are "four boxes" that can be employed to resist the downfall of America, the ballot box, the soap box, the jury box and, lastly, the ammo box.

    Life is short.
    Make sure you spend as much time as possible
    on the internet arguing with strangers about politics.

    I don't know, isn't this the way evolution is supposed to work? The strong survive and the weak go to college, eat Tide pods, become incels and don't reproduce.
    Children, pets, and slaves get taken care of. Free Men take care of themselves.

    I still plan to vote.

    Public school is the problem. We took all of our kids out of public school back in the early 80s when things were getting bad and home schooled them. They have all done very well. Our youngest son finished high school at such an early age that his mom didn't want him on a college campus at just 15 years of age so she enrolled him at Texas Tech University on the Internet. He finished 2 years of college at home without being on campus. He took his proctored tests at Troy University near where we lived back then in Montgomery, AL

    My wife thinks it's because they have faced so little adversity. Death from childhood diseases is practically non-existent, almost no one is ever hungry, cold or ill-dressed anymore, so they haven't developed any coping skills.

    Blame it all on William Hanna and Joseph Barbra.

    Formerly, on TV, the American Husband/Father was typified by Fred McMurray.

    Hanna Brbera lowered the bar to the loud-mouthed, slack-jawed Fred Flintstone who was always wrong, always abusive and never socially proficient.




    And everybody jumped into the handbasket.
