Some dude from another forum told me that Being a bachelor in my 30’s….

You will likely see less single maidens during weddings and more couples instead.

The fact of the matter is, people are getting married at a later age and that maybe that’s why. Most of the bride’s friends according to him, are married and taken so it’s not a good idea to go to a wedding as a single man if you want to meet someone.

Personally, I don’t agree with this. You go to a wedding to network and socialize and make friends. If you meet a gal then great.

I tuned into national TV for the first time this year for the start of the world cup. During the first commercial break a series was presented and you saw 2 men kissing. ON OPEN TV. I've never seen that in the last 30 years. I guess since being out of the mainstream for so long I underestimated how mainstream all this stuff we talk about really is, what is literally deemed as normal (not as a fractional part of society), and above all what children come to see as ''normal'' for they just absorb just anything they see at a young age without questioning any of the motives behind it, whether it's ''news'' or ''commercials'', children just see it as what is, truth, reality, what's normal.

To add to foregoing point, also I notice that there suddenly are a lot of women commenting on men sports (like football obviously as prime example). 10 years ago there never ever was a woman commenting on men's sports, now they're ''analyzing'' alongside the men. During my absence of viewing any MSM they've really ramped up the ''equality'' scam.

Yes, it's everywhere now. It was bad enough when they had female sideline reporters, but now they have women in the studio like you said analyzing X's and O's. One time I was watching a baseball show where they had 3 women and 1 man and it turned into a women's group where one of the girls started talking about how she thought a team was going to play better because they look so good in their new uniforms. :rolleyes:

I used to love watching these shows as the men analyzed the strategies of each team, but this new format has just ruined it for me.

Also in extremely white ice hockey, with an extremely white audience, they make sure to have an over-representation of female commentators and people-of-color commentators.

I saw these stats coming by. If you grossly take these numbers into account, you strip away the women and children, you have about 150 million men remained as possible inmates, then you talk about 1.5% percent of men in the US being in jail and prison. That's roughly 1 in every 50 man. Imagine that. The system literally is set up to bring (especially black men) into prison, while talking about ''racism and equality''. The entire system is a scam, and putting people in prison in the US is a mere business, where the business model for these prisons is to get as many people in prison, for the most time possible. I understand now why they like to give out life sentences like Halloween candy in the US, usually without parole, and have laws into place such as the ''three strikes you're out'' phenomenon, or Rico law where not the perpetrator alone is punished for a certain crime, but anyone involved with it to some degree, whether you actually did something or not, and plea deals where it doesn't matter whether you committed the crime or not but you're scared to get completely wrecked when you go to trial so you just take it.

The opposite extreme is what we have in Western-Europe, where when stabbing someone to death/driving someone over a couple of times you usually see people getting 7 years, with 2/3 standard, meaning that 1/3 usually goes away with good behavior (in the past every sentence would always only be 2/3rd time served). Here, basically there's no law or serious legal consequences for whatever behavior and the system leans on people having so much material comfort that they don't commit crimes.

Altogether a fair system should be something in the middle: where it's not a business to hand out life sentences (without parole!) like Halloween candy, but give (way) sterner sentences than in Western-Europe, with altogether a plan to launch someone back in society when possible (usually this is the case) and to help him on that path, for in the US when you finally get out after X amount of decades you're dumped on the street and you're usually straight in survival mode anyway, with all bad consequences of it, leaving people barely a chance of a return in society (which of course isn't the plan to begin with, for the prison business wants them back asap, as discussed).

,,

The United States incarcerates more people, in both absolute numbers and per capita, than any other nation in the world. Since 1970, the number of incarcerated people has increased sevenfold to 2.3 million in jail and prison today, far outpacing population growth and crime.

Not everyone is treated equally in the criminal justice system. Racial bias keeps more people of color in prisons and on probation than ever before. One out of every three Black boys born today can expect to go to prison in his lifetime, as can one of every six Latino boys — compared with one of every 17 white boys. Black people are also subject to pretrial detention at a higher rate than white arrestees with similar charges and history.

There are a lot of tattoos in my department at work - none of them are on the men.

Sometimes google accidentally shows me images from ~2010. One thing that's interesting about the girls is that, even though punk was in fashion (emo), practically none had tattoos. Yet nowadays you see huge disgusting pieces on the dumbasses' legs, arms, etc.

Tattoos on women turn my stomach. It's such a slap in the face to everything and everyone.

Have any of you noticed that every time a middle-aged adult or a boomer talks about "the real world", the real world is pretty much just finances?
Haha, yes. I was just with a group of guys last night where this very thing was said. "Let's talk about something real!...." and launched right into some business/finance thing.

I do have some sympathy as I am a middle ager with a family and money does end up being very real. But yeah, family is hardly the focus of these "real" discussions.

"Lets get real...on things like money or finances or industry or taxes etc. Meanwhile we're literally castrating kids.

Hey, hormones are just one more med to add to the list behind aderall and whatever else. We can't be bothered by these annoying kids getting in the way of muh sports and muh toys. Give them an ipad, an iphone... it's a chinese babysitter! yuk, yuk, yuk.

It is truly sickening.

I have noticed that no one speaks about smaller government. That we are living under "public rule" instead of paying a sum of money (let's say 10%) for them to provide a "public service."
  • Most people demand more stimulus checks and are angry about the fact that other people get free stuff and they don't.
  • All western countries are spending far more than they get in; their trade balances are wrecked.
  • Public sector employees are getting "inflation correction" pay increases of +5% while private sector white collar workers are being fired.
  • The huge "support packages" and regulations around the western world are completely derailing the private sector; this is the main cause of these supply chain issues, e.g., lithium prices are 10x what they were a year ago.

There is no one in the public debate saying we need to cut government spending and cut back government power; maybe people realize it and feel: Let's just get what we can get and forget the rest.

The entire basic concept of the public sector is gone: that 90% of the people should be free men in free employment, and that we collect some money from all to provide a few public services like police, law, road, energy grid, airports, and rail for everyone.

https://data.oecd.org/chart/6Tyr

Only Norway had a positive trade balance in the OECD.

Governments are driving society off the cliff, completely destroying the private sector. It is impossible for the private sector to manage policy volatility. Some months, you may become wealthy as a result of regulations and stimulus payments, while other months, you may become impoverished.

Today's stock exchange is driven more by the Federal Reserve and government policy than by company excellence and performance.

The institution that once provided a public service has seized power. It switched places. Private companies and individuals must now follow the orders of the public service rulers rather than the other way around. It doesn't matter if you vote Republican or Democrat or any of the other European parties.

What surprises me is that this realisation is not spoken about publicly and even privately.
  • The Gen Z and Millenials think the private sector is evil, except for Elon Musk, but even Elon turns out to be evil now.
  • The boomers are completely disconnected, still clapping for the Jews, and thinking about their government pensions and health care
  • Gen X is divided, 80% woke, 20% disconnected and frustrate
Most people talk about what the government should do differently. While I think: 80% of the government should be fired, the powers should be restored, the organism is sick.

They made us (mostly in Europe) dependent on them with health care.

Any criticism is quickly polarized in holocaustian fashion:
  • So who is going to care for you when you get sick? Who's going to keep us safe?
    • Sorry, I'm just saying paying effectively 60% of your salary to the rulers is not a good idea.
  • So you don't want to care for the poor elderly people?
    • Well, I just don't think paying 60% to internationalist rulers is helping poor people.
  • People in the 30s in Germany said these kind of things, I don't want to say it out loud, but.. you sound like an evil nazi.

My next 6 month car insurance premium just went up 20% from prior 6 months. According to the customer service rep I spoke with “no accidents or tickets reported…this is just a business decision”. Inflation rate is 8-10% so not sure how they are justifying 20% increase. I guess I’ll shop around. Recommend you all look closely at your car insurance premiums as well.
