In Defense Of The Modern [Aussie] Man

By On International Men’s Day this year (November 19th), advertising and marketing company M&C Saatchi released a White Paper titled The Modern [Aussie] Man. The Paper was the result of eight months of one-to-one interviews with 140 men, primarily aged 27-55 years, from a broad cross section of Australian demographics, workforce and geography.
Seventy men were influential leaders, marketers and role models from business, sport, military, popular culture, hospitality, philanthropy, academia, men’s health and wellbeing, education, media, advertising and fashion. Seventy were everyday men from around Australia, including construction and white collared workers, sales assistants, baristas and bartenders.
To quote from the Paper,
“The Modern [Aussie] Man study is not, and was never intended to be, a definitive summation of Australian men’s character, anthropology and imperfections. Nor is it the creation of a new set of male archetypes. Its aim is to draw a line under historic truths and modern day perceptions, and help move society to a new place of heightened awareness and mutual respect.

Who Decides Who's Crazy? - Big Pharma and the DSM + Lies, Damned Lies, and Government Statistics

corbettreport: Commonly referred to as the psychiatric diagnostic "bible," the APA's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders has always generated controversy. How are disorders diagnosed? What criteria are used to establish disorders in the first place? Are the categories subjective? Do they reflect cultural biases?

Two US Congressmen Push for Release of 28-Page Document Showing Saudi Involvement in 9/11 + Happy Anniversary Mossad Job

By Michael Krieger: I have publicly questioned the official story of 9/11 for many years. Of course, I’ve never claimed to know exactly what happened on that fateful day, but I’ve maintained that the official story stinks to high heaven. I always found it beyond bizarre that the U.S. launched a war against Iraq following the terrorist attacks, yet never really questioned the potential (and obvious) Saudi involvement, despite the glaring fact that 15 of the 19 hijackers were Saudi citizens.
Saudi suspicion crept even further into my mind following their anger at the U.S. for not going to war in Syria, in what now seems likely to have been a Saudi provocation to begin with.
Disturbingly, it appears the highest levels of the Bush Administration knew all too well about such a link and intentionally covered it up. The Obama Administration continues the coverup. The Saudi link is made clear in a 28-page, redacted classified document from 2002, which has now been seen by two Congressmen who were “absolutely shocked”

Rated “P” for Patriarchy + “War-marriage vampires” & “Fake war brides” of WW I

By : One of the most frustrating things to see, to a person who values truth, is valid points misleadingly mixed with ridiculous assertions. Salon’s article by Soraya Chemaly, “The MPAA’s backwards logic: Sex is dangerous, sexism is fine,” is a case of just such an article. In perhaps Chemaly’s only really substantive point, she questions why a sex scene, which depicts something generally positive and fun, should be rated worse than movies where people are literally ripped to shreds. But this isn’t the place to debate such aspects of American morality (although this might be), and aside from this, it is an exercise in fallacy and distorted reality.
Chemaly’s article focuses on the French film, “Blue is the Warmest Color,” which was given an NC-17 rating for graphic, lengthy lesbian sex scenes, using prosthetic genitalia. However, you don’t need to have seen the movie to realize just how ridiculous the arguments in her article are. In one of her first questions, she prompts the reader to, “Imagine if our movie ratings considered sexism and racism as content that children should not be viewing without parental input.”
Okay, I’m imagining it: I see films rated based on a film reviewer’s political convictions and personal beliefs. You know, more than they already do. That way, every movie a person under 17 is allowed to see will give them just the right politically-correct programming, since clearly mandatory schooling isn’t working fast enough.

Riot Police Attack Greek Highschool Students On Athens University Grounds

Lecturers and others reproach the police traitors, identify their trechary in legal terms and demand the kettled kids be released. 
Perseus999: On December 6, 2013, following a big protest in the center of Athens, Greece by highschool students, on the 5 year anniversary of the murder of 15 year old Alexis Grigoropoulos by a policeman in 2008, riot police attacked the protest at its end on Athens University grounds, that until recently was under asylum status. Then, in an attempt to humiliate them, surrounded the entrapped students and began to frisk them again and again. Even a traffic policeman took part in the frisking!

Examining Male Underachievement in Education

Abstract: For a number of decades now, the gap in educational achievement between boys and girls has been widening significantly in favor of girls. Instead of blaming male attitudes towards education however, I think we have a duty to question whether the current education system is simply more suited to girls.

If the culturally deterministic, "blank slate" theory of behavioral sex differences is inaccurate, then this brings into question the egalitarian code of conduct which is common practice in many western governments today.

More Misleading Official US Employment Statistics + US 2014 Recession - The One Topic No One Is Discussing

By Paul Craig Roberts: The payroll jobs report for November from the Bureau of Labor Statistics says that the US economy created 203,000 jobs in November. As it takes about 130,000 new jobs each month to keep up with population growth, if the payroll report is correct, then most of the new jobs would have been used up keeping the unemployment rate constant for the growth in the population of working age persons, and about 70,000 of the jobs would have slightly reduced the rate of unemployment. Yet, the unemployment rate (U3) fell from 7.3 to 7.0, which is too much for the job gain. It seems that the numbers and the news reports are not conveying correct information.
As the payroll jobs and unemployment rate reports are released together and are usually covered in the same press report, it is natural to assume that the reports come from the same data. However, the unemployment rate is calculated from the household survey, not from payroll jobs, so there is no statistical relationship between the number of new payroll jobs and the change in the rate of unemployment.
It is doubtful that the differences in the two data sets can be meaningfully resolved. Consider only the definitional differences. The payroll survey counts a person holding two jobs as if it were two employed persons, while the household survey counts a person holding two jobs as one job. Also the two surveys treated furloughed government workers during the shutdown differently. They were unemployed according to the household survey and employed according to the payroll survey.

Institutionalized Misandry: Six year old boy is suspended from school and labeled with sexual harassment, for kissing a girl on the hand

By Are school officials interested in education and the well-being of students anymore, or are they just a bunch of sociopathic, opportunistic scumbags willing to savage children for the sake of political correctness and to get back slaps from their left of Mao, morally derelict cohorts in the teachers union?
Never mind, the question was rhetorical. And if it wasn’t, it was just given another resounding answer by Robin Gooldy, district superintendent over Lincoln School of Science and Technology in Canon City, Colorado, where he just explained the suspension of six year old Hunter Yelton, for, get this, kissing a girl on the hand, an apparently at some point, her cheek.
Oh, and they also stamped “sexual harassment” on his permanent school record.
I started to write this up as a news story, but I was too pissed off to keep my opinion out of it.
Now, I am not going to waste keystrokes explaining how a six year old doesn’t understand sex, much less sexual harassment. Nor am I going to offer a step by step rationale why behavior of this kind is perfectly normal. If you need that explained to you, then I can only suggest Googling “Darwin Awards” and then just using your limited brain power on not getting one. Either that, or consider a career in education.
