Labor Day

It’s that time of year again. Most, if not all of the summer vacations are over. The kids are back in school. While summer itself continues on for yet a little while longer, summer for most people is officially over.

It’s Labor Day.

Let’s not only make today about drinking beer, eating hot dogs, and basking in the hot summer sun, let’s take a really quick moment to think about Labor.

It’s Men that have created our society, our civilization. It’s the toil and sweat of Men that have made our dreams so far into reality.

It’s Man’s Labor that has given us our greatest innovations, our greatest technologies.

It’s Men that have advanced us to where we are as a people.

It’ll be Men that put us on Mars and other planets in our universe.

It’ll be Men that solve the mysteries of the depths of our oceans and of our planet itself.

Because that’s what Men do.

We Men are the idealists, the dreamers, the thinkers, the innovators, the romantics, and the problem solvers.

Labor Day to me is a celebration. It’s a celebration of what Men has created and will create in the future. It’s a celebration of where we have come from, where we are today, and where we will be tomorrow.

I give and say my thanks to my fellow Men of the past, the present, and the Men of the future. Here’s to many more to come.

The present is good and the future looks bright.

Cheers to you, my fellow Men.

As a side note:

If you find yourself in jail for doing something that got you there, realize that you’ll be there until tomorrow. The judge is off today celebrating too.

First it was #MeToo . Then it became #TimesUp . Now it’s #MentorHer

Feminism and people on the “Left” are bat-shit crazy. That’s all I can think about it. First it was the accusations of #MeToo. Men in entertainment and politics being called out for sexual harassment and indiscretions from time periods of days, weeks, months, and even years ago. Men being crucified in the court of social media with no due process, no evidence, nothing but an accusation. Men losing their jobs and their livelihoods over words. If you questioned it or go against it, you are screamed and shamed into silence. Then came #TimesUp.

Oprah and the gang of Hollywood Elites decided to carry the momentum to the next level. They put everyone on notice, this shit isn’t going to fly anymore.

Now we are seeing #MentorHer.

The men of industry and business have heard loud and clear ladies. Men are no longer having one on one meetings with female co-workers. Businesses are no longer having opposite sex co-workers share cabs. Some businesses are even going so far as to not allow opposite sex co-workers stay at the same hotel/motel while on business trips. All because of the witch hunt known as #MeToo. I don’t blame those men or those businesses. The risks are too great.

So feminists have screamed #MeToo from the tops of their lungs and men are getting burned because of it, and now that those same men, and other’s like them have decided to slow down and approach with caution, we are seeing those same feminist’s screaming #MentorHer! Man up and #MentorHer!

As Dalrock so aptly put it:

Feminism is the assertion that men are evil and naturally want to harm women, followed by pleas to men to solve all of women’s problems.

Well said, good sir. Well said.

Feminists, listen up. This is the world you wanted. This is the world you get. This is the world you deserve. Men are either the oppressive, evil, patriarchy that needs to be smashed and destroyed, or we are the men who compliment you throughout our lives. We are the “other half” so to speak. You can’t shame and then plead for help. You can’t screech and then cry. You can’t have it both ways.

Here’s a quote from Watchmen that is poignant and fitting:

Roschach’s Journal: October 12th, 1985

Dog carcass in alley this morning, tire tread on burst stomach. This city is afraid of me. I have seen its true face.

The streets are extended gutters and the gutters are full of blood and when the drains finally scab over, all the vermin will drown.

The accumulated filth of all their sex and murder will foam up about their waists and all the whores and politicians will look up and shout “Save us!”… and I’ll look down and whisper “No.”

You reap what you sow.

I’m not shocked, outraged, or surprised.

With the current events of our time, is it really surprising what is unfolding? The left and the right going at it is not surprising in the least to me. You kick a dog long enough, that dog is going to bite you. You label someone as something else, you create a division with that label. It’s Us vs. Them. I even mentioned this back in December.

Both sides are wrong. Both sides are of the same coin. Change the hats, the shirts, the labels, and you can’t tell them apart.

I’m sitting here watching it all unfold and I’m a little surprised that others are shocked and outraged. Really? You honestly didn’t see this coming? Talk about burying your head in the sand. This has been a long time coming, the only real surprise for me is that it took this long to actually show up.

It’s only going to get worse from here kids. You’ve just witnessed the beginning. You reap what you sow. You’ve been warned.

The only question for me is, “When does it stop?”

You tear down one monument, statue, etc., in the name of whatever ideology you subscribe to, where does it go from there? Where does it stop? What is ok to destroy and what is not ok to destroy? Are books next? Videos? Movies? Buildings? Established ways of living? People themselves?

I’m re-writing a quote that came from WWII. You know the quote, and if you don’t look it up, it’s easy to find.

“First they came for the Nazi’s and I said nothing, because I wasn’t a Nazi. Then they came for the Communist’s, and I said nothing because I wasn’t a Communist. Then they came for the Conservative’s and again I said nothing because I wasn’t a Conservative. Then they came for the Liberal’s. And again I said nothing because I wasn’t a Liberal. Then they came for me. And no one spoke out because there was no one left to speak for me.”

Words to heed. You’ve all been warned.
