Herstory: Quick divorce, easy money – It’s not about “equality”

By : As regular readers of A Voice for Men know already, it was in the mid-1920s thatthe scam hit the fan,” so to speak, with regard to what in that was universally known as the alimony racket.” It was the era when the first formally established anti-alimony organizations came into being, headed by such proto-MHRAs as Dr. Vernon P.  Cooley and wife Bessie Cooley in Chicago (“Alimony Club of Illinois,” founded 1927) and Robert Gilbert Ecob (Alimony Payers Protective Association,” founded 1927). The battles to eliminate alimony racketeering — the predatory exploitation of the institution on the part of petitioners and lawyers, as opposed to legitimate, justified, alimony — still rage to this very day. We might be tempted, at this moment, to coin the phrase “90 years war” to describe these unabated long-term hostilities, however, such an idea would be impractical, as that numeral would necessarily have to be continuously updated, since war’s end is nowhere in sight).
Of particular interest to many readers will be the expression of sympathy in the following texts — by women, it will be noted — towards an attitude which today can be seen in the MGTOW (Men Going Their Own Way) movement, and which has been recently brought to the attention of the wider public in book form with Dr. Helen’s Smith’s book, Men On Strike.
Isn’t it amazing how facts (such as those documented here) can so quickly undermine the polemics we are so used to being bombarded with — polemics that employ vague abstract notions as “equality” and “patriarchy?”

Congratulations You're A Feminist (If You Like It Or Not)

"The word feminist is a slur at this point!"
Monica Edwards: On tumblr you are a feminist if you like it or not. Their really broad terms for what makes people a feminist means it's all inclusive. They are so desperate to recruit members that it's come down to accepting everyone who agrees with common sense. I AM NOT A FEMINIST and I am NEVER GOING TO BE ONE. Stop it.

Ron Paul Launches Clemency Petition For Edward Snowden

RT: Former Texas congressman Ron Paul has announced a petition aiming to secure clemency for Edward Snowden, the National Security Agency whistleblower who revealed extensive US surveillance programs and ignited a national debate on Americans’ privacy.
In a video released Thursday on the Ron Paul Channel, an online network the libertarian started last summer, he calls on supporters to sign the petition in an attempt to bring Snowden home to the US safely before his temporary visa in Russia expires in July.
Edward Snowden sacrificed his livelihood, citizenship, and freedom by exposing the disturbing scope of the NSA's worldwide spying program,” he said.Thanks to one man's courageous actions, Americans know about the truly egregious ways their government is spying on them.
Paul worked as a physician before serving in Congress intermittently in the 1970s and 1980s then again from 1997 until 2013. He is best known for his libertarian positions, which often put him at odds with members of the Republican party. Paul has repeatedly lent public support to Snowden since the former NSA contractor came forward to admit he leaked classified documents to journalists affiliated with the Guardian and the Washington Post.
By signing this petition, you are telling the US government that Mr. Snowden deserves the right to come home without the fear of persecution or imprisonment,” the website stated.

Special Video For My Valentine

Julie Borowski: So, I never make personal videos like this. But I guess Valentine's Day has me in a cheesy mood. Yeah, I'll admit it... I'm in love. And sorry but I just have to express it. Please don't make fun of me!

20 Signs That The Global Economic Crisis Is Starting To Catch Fire

By : If you have been waiting for the "global economic crisis" to begin, just open up your eyes and look around.  I know that most Americans tend to ignore what happens in the rest of the world because they consider it to be "irrelevant" to their daily lives, but the truth is that the massive economic problems that are currently sweeping across Europe, Asia and South America are going to be affecting all of us here in the U.S. very soon.  Sadly, most of the big news organizations in this country seem to be more concerned about the fate of Justin Bieber's wax statue in Times Square than about the horrible financial nightmare that is gripping emerging markets all over the planet.  After a brief period of relative calm, we are beginning to see signs of global financial instability that are unlike anything that we have witnessed since the financial crisis of 2008.  As you will see below, the problems are not just isolated to a few countries.  This is truly a global phenomenon. Over the past few years, the Federal Reserve and other global central banks have inflated an unprecedented financial bubble with their reckless money printing.  Much of this "hot money" poured into emerging markets all over the world.  But now that the Federal Reserve has begun "tapering" quantitative easing, investors are taking this as a sign that the party is ending.  Money is being pulled out of emerging markets all over the globe at a staggering pace and this is creating a tremendous amount of financial instability.  In addition, the economic problems that have been steadily growing over the past few years in established economies throughout Europe and Asia just continue to escalate.  The following are 20 signs that the global economic crisis is starting to catch fire...

Varoufakis and Shedlock on Europe's 'triumph of wishful thinking over reality'

And with new US financial regulatory rules set to kick in soon, European banksters are looking for ways to skirt the new laws.
