 It just occurs to me as I read the various blogs this morning that the last time I was actually in a woman led organization my mother was the Den Mother. I see that college kids today are more and more being led by the hysterical distaff anti-American haters that dominate university life thanks to the sinking enrollment numbers of young men and the huge increases in the university bureaucracy that feeds off the money their parents and the U.S. government bring to school. 

It doesn't seem to bring out the best in people and to be honest, watching young people lose their shit over the perfectly reasonable retaliation for a direct and vicious attack is a major loss of confidence in just what universities were supposed to be about. On the other hand, it was the young men of the Oxford Union that failed the test proposed in King and Country debate. Not everyone can play the victim.

It feels a little odd to suddenly realize that over countless jobs during the last 50 years or so that in not one of them did I find myself working for or reporting to a woman.

If forced to point out one single factor that was most responsible for the insanity society currently suffers from I would have ror say women's suffrage. Giving emotional irrational women a legal voice in how society runs was probably the single biggest mistake ever made.

There were a lot of mistakes made long before that bit of madness. Watching Europe gut itself over nothing in World War I marks the low point. Watching it finish off what was left with World War II comes close. Winning the Cold War and then throwing it all away to maximize profits for defense contractors and turn neutral China and Russia into putative enemies starts to add to the mix of stupid. Hillary and Madeline were just the hideous face of democratic politics running that shit show. Underneath it is still being run by the same horrible people that have been doing it now since the fall of Rome.
