Everyone (meaning both of you) probably get sick of me pimping Fred Reed's columns, but I'm going to do it anyway, so get over it.
First, Fred questions how someone can govern others when he has no fucking clue what normal people live with every day. The closest I ever came to riding in a chauffeured limousine was riding in the back of one that my cousin was driving to the car wash. Can someone, anyone, please explain how someone who has known nothing but, has the slightest clue how to run my life? Read Fred's column
, then think about the last ten bills Congress has passed. Explains a lot, doesn't it? Now imagine you are a 17-year-old inner city kid listening to some dumb-fuck that just showed up in a limo with half the city police department as an escort, telling you he "feels your pain" while wearing more money than you will make in your entire life, surrounded by 50 body guards, with a helicopter flying close support. He may as well be a fucking alien. "Feels my pain" my ass. Not unless I can get close enough to loosen up his front teeth with my fist.
In the most current column
, Fred takes a few swings at one of his favorite punching bags; affirmative action. My view is much in line with Fred's. I've worked with some extremely talented women and minorities. I've also had my fill of affirmative action hires. Now in case anyone thinks Fred or myself harsh when discussing these parasites, let me assure you that we are gentle as kittens compared to how qualified blacks and women view them. The reason is simple. When my former employer hired a black female for a systems analysis position that was too stupid to learn how to even log onto the network after six months, she just made me look all that much smarter. The other black females in the department correctly viewed her as a liability and made short work of getting rid of her and were none too gentle about how they went about it. One day Miss Black Moron is striding around the office threatening lawsuits; the next, she was just gone without a trace.
Women and minorities may be "making strides" but I'm not convinced the price is worth it. Personally, they can fucking have it. I sat in a grey box for 20 years. Now I fix leaky faucets and snake out plugged toilets for $6.75/hour and enjoy my work more now than I have in a long time. Some dumb broad wants to drive 90 minutes each way to sit in my cube for 9 or 10 hours, then get home only to have her pager go off at 7pm, 11pm, and 3am, and call that success, be my guest.
The reason women outnumber men in college is because college has become hostile to males. If we are lucky, the women will completely take over our university system, eliminate the athletic departments, hard science, math, and everything else that women can't do, or can only do poorly when compared to men. The men will all leave for Mexico or other unenlightened countries around the Pacific Rim that still admit that society works better if everyone accepts that women are women and men are men. Then in three months or 3,000 miles, every mechanical device will seize up because there won't be anyone around to change the oil.
The Chinese don't give a shit about political correctness. They give a lot of shit about kicking our ass economically by any means needed, even if that means that the math departments in their universities have more men than women.
