When your daughter asks you why you have to study... pic.twitter.com/hFMIrwlujs

The implication is that the lady doesn't really like the guy in the photo. I disagree,I don't know who the fellow in the photo is, but I assume that he is some rich or powerful (or both) man. In a case like this a woman can rationalize her way into loving him. No reason to think that she is strictly mercenary. Most people don't like to think of themselves as gold diggers, and thus they rationalize reasons for why they are dating a less attractive man.
That's not loving him in that case, it's loving what he can (or she thinks he can) provide her. This is why I stay single. When people think they can rationalize love, then you know the world has gone to utter crap.
" it's loving what he can (or she thinks he can) provide her. "Hey, most women are like that. They have an entitlement mentality one way or the other. A lot of pussified girly men (white knights, manginas) are that way too.
Ha Ha! Winner! I'm tucking this one away for future daughter/daddy talks. I've got 4, so I can reuse it over and over again, like hand me down clothes.
Well, we need to be teaching our daughters how to be unselfish and non-narcissistic. Telling them to get educations hasn't helped their spoiled attitudes. Too many of them are "daddy's little girl" thanks to pussified fathers and also mothers who divorce them for one frivolous reason or another..
While I agree with some of your sentiment(not all), it's a whole separate issue from what I view as a light hearted/funny tweet.The point of the picture IMO, in a funny way, is to highlight self sufficiency- showing that women shouldn't NEED a man, but instead WANT a man, with the ability to be discerning on who they pick.It sounds nice to say "you shouldn't marry someone for their looks", but the reality is that sexual attraction is one of many components of a successful relationship/marriage.My wife, truly my better half is almost every way, graduated Cum Laude from W&L and was a sales manager like myself at the time we met. The transition to stay at home Mom wasn't easy for her, but more importantly she chooses to rely on me to provide so she can home school, care for the girls, etc.; She originally had a career, (and I'm not saying that's the "right" way to do things) she could pick her husband(lucky me!) at her leisure-we married later in life compared to most others and didn't have our first child until our early 30's and and the last one when she was 41.Anyway, I see the point of this picture being two fold:#1 Be self sufficient#2 Don't choose a husband for the wrong reasonsI know there's an ongoing message over @ LRC about how the LBJ society has destroyed families, and I agree. However, women that leave their husbands over mundane/common marriage problems and jump on welfare over it are anything but self sufficient. I don't view education for women as a minus in any way. If they have "spoiled attitudes" as you put it, I don't think 'education'(assuming you mean university level) has much to do with it. I think the parents are far more responsible for such attitudes.(even though the generally progressive environment in university's is certainly not easy to withstand, but a parent's job is to overcome that as well)
Well said Nick. Glad to read that y'all left the indoctrination centers (government schools) also!
"While I agree with some of your sentiment(not all)"So you still don't quite get it yet."My wife, truly my better half is almost every way"Why do men insist on degrading themselves like little manginas at every turn? "graduated Cum Laude from W&L"Paul Krugman has a PhD. So? I tend to look at establishment "education" these days as indoctrination centers more than anything else."we married later in life compared to most others and didn't have our first child until our early 30's and and the last one when she was 41."Women shouldn't be having kids that late. It greatly increases the chances of birth defects and other problems. They should be having them young (IF people insist on getting married)."and jump on welfare over it are anything but self sufficient."No kidding. The welfare state is a total scam. It's a destroyer of human productivity and a breeding ground family destruction. Not good."If they have "spoiled attitudes" as you put it, I don't think 'education'(assuming you mean university level) has much to do with it."Like I said, you don't quite get it yet. And using your own personal example is not sufficient."I think the parents are far more responsible for such attitudes."No, it has nothing to do with the endless brainwashing by the media, "education" and so on. No, not at all. Why do you think parents are so clueless now? How do you think these single mother households began? POLITICAL IDEOLOGY.
Hey Mike,First, I'm not degrading myself. If you want to stand in front of me, and call me a "mangina", you'll quickly see that's not the case. Consider it an open invitation, I'll e-mail you on where I live and we can talk it over.My wife is a high on the evolutionary rung, period. In many ways I admire, she has strengths I do not have. That does not make me weak, or insufficient, or anything else, as I have my own strengths."Women shouldn't be having kids that late. It greatly increases the chances of birth defects and other problems. They should be having them young (IF people insist on getting married)."That's your opinion Mike. Freedom of choice, that's what it's all about. For the increased risk of having kids later physiologically you get other benefits such as emotional and financial stability."No, it has nothing to do with the endless brainwashing by the media, "education" and so on."I didn't say that Mike, you're putting words into my mouth. "How do you think these single mother households began? POLITICAL IDEOLOGY."I'm pretty sure single mother household existed before the great society, but I noted that the policies under LBJ exacerbated the problem. You attempted to demonize education as the reason:" Telling them to get educations hasn't helped their spoiled attitudes. "The above comment is really just a stupid ass thing to say. If you want an uneducated wife, go for it, there are plenty of them around."Like I said, you don't quite get it yet."How many children do you have Mike & how long have your been married? I've shared & put myself out there, so do the same and tell us how you've arrived to your conclusions Mike.
@ Anon 2:19"Glad to read that y'all left the indoctrination centers (government schools) also!"Thank you. My wife was very good in her career, but unequivocally, homeschooling has been a far bigger challenge for her than anything in her previous career. We've done it from the beginning, so none of our girls (10,8,6 & 4) know what public school is like. I can't take too much credit for their progress scholastically, I focus on my business to keep the finances sound and my wife handles the homeschooling and does a little side sales from home(very part time)that adds to the household income with minimal commitment. I'm very proud of my wife and the kids and thankfully it gets easier as time goes on.
Mike the troll got slammed.*crickets
Why teach your daughter that only appearances matter? What if the woman truly loves the guy? That's all that should matter. Laura would be a horrible mother if she teaches her daughter that appearances matter more than substance.
The guy's name is Flavio Briatore.
What about the women looking for "generous" men to help through school?
I know a girl who paid for her criminal justice degree through Craigslist and Backpage. No exaggeration. She told me she used to get $1000 per night, all under the table obviously.
This thug is Flavio Briatore...total scumbag and womaniser. He and his henchmen almost ruined Formula 1 Racing a few years ago (The FIA is perfectly capable of ruining the sport by themselves btw).While he was at Renault - he was responsible for Crashgate and I am so happy he got banned from F1. Another cheat is Fernando Alonso to whom Briatore is a role model who is a total crybaby (there is a youtube video where his rookie teammate Hamilton was sweeping the floor with him and gonna outqualify where he deliberately pitted longer than needed so that Hamilton didn't have time to change tyres, refuel before the clock expired).I am so glad both are getting what they deserve - this is true more so in Alonso's case whose now Ferrari team is getting smoked this season by Mercedes and Red Bull Racing.I hope they both burn in hell!
One of the comments back to Laura was the best zinger: "When your son asks why he has to study, show him this picture. He'll be old someday"
I'll be filling that away for the son next time he complains about studying.
When your son asks why he should study, show him the same pic
So he can be with a covetous girl that detracts from his own self-worth? Oy vey. "For the lips of a strange woman drop as an honeycomb, and her mouth is smoother than oil: but her end is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a two-edged sword. Her feet go down to death; her steps take hold on hell." (Prov. 5:3-5). I'll take a God-fearing woman with respect for herself and her husband over a floozy any day.
"I'll take a God-fearing woman with respect for herself...."They have respect for themselves. They use their beauty as a tool to acquire material things from someone else. They're professional con-women. It's respect for men they lack.And getting a a"God-fearing woman" in these days is no guarantee. I personally know some who in divorce court can be THE MOST VICIOUS of all women. It's amazing to see them transform. Family courts are sexist against men and need to change. Until then DO NOT get married.
True, true. On second thought, maybe I'll just stay single.
My mother was a "God-fearing woman" with so much respect for herself that she tried to change her divorce settlement several years after she agreed to it. She started by making calls to my father's place of work, where she hoped to implant the belief that he'd not complied. Of course, she was trying to change the settlement, which had provided basically everything which she demanded when she filed for divorce years earlier. (She had told us then, the 1980s, that the divorce was all for us, her sons.)The plot of my dear, sweet, "God-fearing" mum unraveled in court, however. The judge inspected the settlement and compared it to the evidence provided by my father and his attorney. Case dismissed.
If I'm not mistaken, evangelical Christians have some of the highest divorce rates in the US. Whether or not all of these people were really born again is certainly debatable, but a fair part of the blame should also rest on the laxity of the churches these days. Easy-believism is the order of the day. We need fiery preachers and brethren who are more interested in the truth than being politically correct. I'm reading Leonard Ravenhill's Why Revival Tarries again, and I love it. Perhaps "God-fearing, Bible-believing and -reading, truly born again woman" is more like it. I don't know, maybe join an Amish community. Outside of that, good women are ridiculously hard to find. Bless those who are, they're worth more than any amount of gold this world can offer.
Anon 1:47:Bingo. People are more than happy to get whatever they want at someone elses expense when backed by the GUNS of government. This is why it's such an evil institution and should be viewed as a superstitious relic. It's a tool for the political connected to fuck over everyone else. It amazes me that people STILL haven't figured this out yet.
Whatever Flavio has been studying has worked out well. Sounds like this isn't his only hot babe:http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2526846/Flavio-Briatore-admires-wife-Elisabetta-sizzles-black-bikini-family-break.htmlI wish an older woman billionaire would marry me. :) That ain't going to happen.
