The effect on poor families is especially harsh, Nelson says: “It’s a wife that has three children at home, and her husband is in jail, so now she has a choice: Do I send money to him so he can afford to stay in touch with the kids, or do I feed the kids?”
Inmates’ need for money is inescapable, Nelson says. Those in Northern Illinois are not issued cold-weather clothes, he says, leaving them vulnerable to frostbite unless they can get money to pay for prison-approved long underwear and boots.
This film is about this older American woman falling in love with an mentally challenged Australian man half her age (Mel Gibson). While this might be a touching and interesting story on IQ and age differences being overcome, we just can’t ignore the fact that Mel Gibson is attractive to women, or at least he was at that age. In that case, it’s easy to make fun of this movie.
They could have just gotten a less attractive person – or even worse – and gotten him to fall in love with the woman. That might have seemed less fake and cheesy.
What middle class/rich women doesn’t want to fall in love with the hired help – lol? Which of them wouldn’t want to teach him to read, especially after going on beach outings where he’s strutting around in what looks like underwear?
Why not? What’s so fun about dating good girls, unless you’re a bad boy? I mean, good needs to help bad, right? It’s just a natural dynamic. In fact, I don’t understand how two good people could get along. Well, maybe two bad people could get along, but it might even get boring there. Well, definitely a pair of two bad people could be very dangerous – so it would be too unhealthy for such a pair maybe.
Honestly, unless you had a home phone near the jail or prison, you’re looking at $300 or more a month just to have contact your loved one on an everyday basis (maybe 3 – fifteen minute calls a day).
Anyway, jails etc. are supposed to be punishment, but we sometimes have loved ones, and we want to ease their suffering as much as possible because we love them.
Anyhow, should it be different? I don’t know. The prison system says it cares, but considering the fact that prison is punishment, it gives them a green light to be tyrannical. In fact, they even monitor your massively overcharged calls and cut off contact with you and your loved one permanently, but I don’t think this happens very often.
Anyway, for other stuff you can now send electronic emails, also charged – but not too much – and also photos, which are a little expensive.
Well, emails are O.K., but I you can’t keep a real relationship without hearing their voice.
It’s not allowed in a lot of the country because of COVID, so the alternative is video visits, and of course, they’re charging an arm and a leg!
I’m thinking some Black men have the notion they can put women in their place so they’re better husbands than White men, or maybe they think they’re better husbands for Black women.
Whatever the case, Black women are just as resentful of men wanting slaves as are women of other races. In fact, a relationship with a Black man where he’s wanting a slave will lead either to a divorce/break-up or literally a slave relationship with a partner that hates them.
Black men might bring this up – even knowing deep down it’s false – because they want an excuse to blame when bad things going down, and they don’t want to blame the woman. They will say the husband isn’t Black so he cannot be a good enough husband.
This notion is easily shot down because as some have said, some relationships where the Black man is with a White woman don’t work, maybe because of over-possessiveness on the part of the Black man.
As a 2nd Thought
The Black men could be just talking about being masculine, such as getting a job and manning up in general. But that has nothing to with race. There’s nothing making Black men more masculine than other men.
The bottom line is that you have to be able to make it to where most of the time, the woman calls you, and you’re not calling her. Also, if she’s the one calling, don’t beg her to call you too much.
When it comes down to it, this is a great way to show you have confidence – and that’s what women want – and if they don’t call to the point where it seems like they’re not interested, then just let them go.
Well, this breakup recovery site – forgot the name – was saying this was evil and that sociopathic women were doing it. I disagree. It could be that women are just naturally prone to do this. They don’t have an obligation to be loyal to you like a dog once married or dating. You have to keep up your Game to attract them. You have to man up, not be jealous from her silly “bringing up better men,” etc..
My Dad kept my mom. He never got devalued to the point of point of being dumped, though there were probably a few fights over his drinking. Anyway, the key to his success is he simply kept “manning up” up. He never cried. He never got lazy.
A lot of guys want comfort from the hurt of being dumped. They want to believe that they didn’t do anything wrong; instead the woman is a crazy loon. But what really happened? I wouldn’t know. Again, I strongly suspect the man was screwing up. Maybe he have wrecked the finances. Maybe he didn’t work much or at all. Maybe acted emotionally weak in front of her, and women hate this, as much as they often try to deny it.
The cold, hard fact is that often keeping a woman attracted to you in a marriage – especially after times are tough – can be very hard. At times the woman loses her attraction for the man. Supposedly, marriage is something where people take vows, but we don’t live in a patriarchal society where men can expect the woman will take crap from them without a reaction. Even if we did, who would want to be with someone who really doesn’t want to be with them?
On one hand, men don’t like being cucked. On the other hand, a lot of women will talk about other men to see if you get jealous. If you get even a little bit jealous, you seem like a wuss, and the woman could lose attraction for you! In fact, they could even dump you!
Doesn’t seem fair, does it? Seems like a trap. But men go on and on about being cucked, how cucked men are despicable, and how they aren’t the type and won’t be pushed into that situation.
The advice from me, but maybe not @Robert Lindsay, is just to ignore “jealous provoking” with silence or humor. That is, if you really want the girl. If you don’t, you could move on. I think in a lot of these situations that the woman is trying to provoke you with a guy she has no actual interest in. It’s just a test from the woman.
How arrogant is this? I mean, no matter how much they might dislike a person, the nerve to resort to this! They don’t get it! The bad person isn’t really all that bad. But they haven’t given her/him a chance. Also, the love felt is not logical. We could even resort to Biblical scripture to say something about this. Why should God love the rebels and downtrodden, but not us? Aren’t we supposed to follow in his footsteps?
Yeah, it’s logical to find “safe partners”. Assuming they’re not snobs who you can’t get anyway – LOL. Even if you could get them, think of how boring they would be! How uninteresting is a relationship with no drama and maybe even with someone looking down on you because you aren’t normie enough!
Anyway, our families are not the only people to try to interfere with our lives. The entity could be the government trying to make a separation – for your own good of course! It might be for the good of a third party, but despite the good intention, it’s an inhumane choice between one and the other.
Yeah, it being acceptable in families and culture is what makes it spread, and it’s just as damaging as Covid!
Well, in many cultures, like African American culture for instance, I think the sense of entitlement and selfishness is often accepted by many family members and is applauded. It’s seen as being tough and sticking up for your rights. But the bottom line is it’s just selfishness of the toddler variety.
Anyhow, a true study of Christianity would show this attitude is wrong and also how it can be sneaky. Some rap star acting like this is pretty much being “in the open,” but not when the family, many of whom go to church and preach to people, do the same thing!
The First Battle of Saltville (October 2, 1864) was fought near the town of Saltville, Virginia during the American Civil War. The battle over an important Confederate saltworks in town was fought by both regular and Home Guard Confederate units against regular Union troops, which included two of the few black cavalry units of the United States Colored Troops. The Union troops were led by Brig. Gen. Stephen G. Burbridge, then commander of US forces in the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
Confederates murdered both black and white wounded soldiers after the battle in what has been called the Saltville Massacre.
No, it was just a nation founded on “states rights”. Slavery had nothing to do with it. White supremacy had nothing to do with it. Profit had nothing to with it.
A lot of people have certain mental illnesses that need therapy and treatment. Nonetheless, the root of cause of their behaviors is just them being selfish or mean. Come on, people!
Where does this attitude come from? I think it comes from the culture but especially, more than anything, the family. If you’ve got rolemodel(s) in the family who are massively selfish, then the kids follow suit.
In other words, people might even go to church and say lots of nice things, but it doesn’t change the selfish, entitled attitude they have. They don’t think so much of Bible verses about forgiveness and love, preferring stuff where they can condemn other people.
What Can Cure This Problem?
Like the Pharisees in the Bible, such people have to truly examine what they believe to see if their beliefs are truly moral. However, as the Bible teaches in Pharisee-related passages, they only believe what they want to believe.
No, not really. Despite the arguments of racists, I simply see lower IQ people acting meaner because they chose to act mean, and it has nothing to do with IQ. There are plenty of sweet people with a low IQ and plenty of monsters with a higher IQ.
Fundamentalist Christianity has always argued that position. If morality is tied to IQ, then salvation loses a lot of meaning, right?
The bottom line is that certain people are simply selfish, probably due to a bad upbringing. According to Christian theology, selfishness is inborn due to original sin.
Where Did I Get the Idea for This Article?
Someone was arguing that low-down, trash-talking people were less educated. However, the truth is instead that people like that are usually just mean. They’re just plain and simple mean, apart from whatever education they have. A lower IQ might manifest as less scholarliness in their cussing, but rest assured, a high IQ jerk will cuss as much just the same.
They’re just mean like that Verruca Salt character in Willy Wonka – just mean, just a bad egg.
This is why I hate reading textbooks on education. It might be something that has to be done, but it’s about as enjoyable as – name something?
Now, I’m not sure if a higher IQ than my 92 can enjoy reading this. I doubt it. They may get more comprehension out of it, but do they enjoy it?
Is there another way to write textbooks? What are these people thinking when they write them?
Well, it would seem plausible that a breakdown in the family would cause a lot of the problems, considering that people are mostly influenced later by early childhood stimulation – as according to the Heckman Equation.
Many cultural conservatives have already been saying that. Much has been done to help blacks and other disadvantaged groups, but maybe it’s not been enough.
My experience with a close relative having dementia has made me think a lot about this subject. I am now have problems forgetting things already in my 40s. One interesting notion is that the brain is like a muscle in that you have to exercise it to keep it working well. In that case, seemingly foolish things like studying advanced math or piano at middle age isn’t such a bad idea!
What stimulation does my relative get? Watching TV or talking on the phone? I’m not being mocking or disrespectful, but could that have contributed to their dementia?
The Heckman Equation
With young kids, the effect of stimulation is the most important thing affecting brain growth and nothing else does much in that regard apparently. Synapses have to be built, and this isn’t something that stops at very young ages.
Well, it would seem plausible that a high IQ could come from stimulation, especially at a very young age.
If early experiences in childhood all the way from almost conception might make us who we are now, then how does race play into this? Cultural liberals are big on “the environment,” but to opponents that’s ignoring biology (racists etc.), or choice. However, in the latter case, what choice do young children or babies make?
Anyway, it’s of my opinion race would matter but would be dwarfed by environmental factors in early childhood. What about environmental stuff later in life? That could be too late in the game, hence why cultural liberals, etc. are so cynical of efforts to help the poor.
The Cop-Out of Eugenics
Why focus so much time on getting rid of so-called bad genes when no attempt is made to help the children of the disadvantaged? Is that moral or ethical? What if it boils down to sterilization and abortion directed at certain groups or worse? We know what we’re talking about here!
It’s unbelievable whole masses of people or even nations have subscribed to just saying “fuck em” and not even bothering to help what is seen as the weak.
Support for the Heckman Equation
There’s quite a bit of support for it at least in the US, as many governments other than our own don’t mind spending billions to keep from having to spend trillions for future problems.
Well, I was on here along time ago and maybe some were curious.
Exit polls this year included early voting and mail in voting in most cases and anyway, they were all shifted blue, which makes no sense given the Republican-heavy election day voting. Furthermore, exit polls matched pre-election polls almost perfectly this year:
Pre-election polls: Biden +8.5
Exit polls: Biden +7.8
The .7 difference is within the margin of error.
In most states the match between pre-election polls and exit polls was also excellent.
Upset cause your boss is so mean? He has to be that way cause he’s under pressure from whose above him.
Upset cause people are making the world into a gold-digging rat race? Well, that’s just human nature – whether it be the Wall Street guy, the internet marketer, the guy wanting more promotions, the guy wanting a more college education. It’s not the way it should be, but that’s a religious problem.
This is why they’re cowards – just like the p-whipped husbands or the guys hiding in Mom’s basement watching porn. However, they escape the cucking by simply doing what the meme says.
But can you blame the woman for posting? She has an attitude? She’s a ball-buster? No, she’s just being a natural woman.
Being a coward is simply a life not worth living. People can’t understand gang warfare in the inner city or American Indian tribes fighting or the Middle Ages because they think, “Why?”. However, the answer has already been said.
Well, there is a third way to get out of both. In other words, cowardice without getting cucked. That would be the guy spending most of his life in shallow relationships, with hookers, or looking at porn.
However, sure enough, once that guy gets a relationship with a woman, he will be massively cucked because he won’t get hero-admiration from her. She might think she can change him, though. But that will make for hellish years of cucking – the worst mental pain you can get.
Why was that? I don’t know. I do know he was on a championship American football team (Well, before blacks could play LOL). Anyway, the point being is that my mom mentioned my late dad as “her warrior”. That pretty much says it all, and note, they never divorced, and were happily married for at least 40 years.
Anyhow, the point being is that my dad pushed the right button with my mom, and that’s the button you need to win your crush or keep your relationship in a respectable mode.
These video game playing, autistic boys don’t because like other males, they cannot get hero worship from women, possibly cause they don’t know what buttons to push to get it. Well, maybe they could try out for American football or something, but I’m guessing these types aren’t fit for it. Well, maybe they could get into music. Weezer are nerds, but so what?
All women don’t want sports or music types. They might want someone to stand up for their child. However, most guys simply don’t – without a private investigator – know the personal details of their crushes.
I don’t think a lot of them really can. Perhaps a situation comes about where the women keep cucking them all the time, and they just say “Fuck this” and then go on to another sucker.
I would think women want loyalty from a man. They’re not going to get it from creeps, pervs, and players.
Now I’m thinking guys who try to stay loyal to a woman and aren’t the three groups I mentioned but cannot gain hero status with a woman will be cucked, and they won’t be able to escape it by going somewhere else. It’s pretty Hellish really.
The guy who has a special place in the woman’s heart can get away with murder at times. They can do this and all she’ll say is, “Well, I guess I can forgive him.”.
However, what guy isn’t the coward and can win her heart totally? Hey, I’ve seen it before. I’ve seen how women crawl the floor before certain men simply cause in their mind, they are the man who will stand up for them.
It’s really as simple as the movie The Three Amigos or Back to the Future, as corny as that sounds.
Nope this group is warned about by many – and even in the Bible. In fact, it says in the Bible to avoid choosing riches, your family over the truth and hints against choosing other idolizing things.
Well, it’s easy to see how many could fall into the trap of serving other Gods, especially your family – cause those cunts will certainly put a guilt trip over you as being “an ungrateful child”.
Well, anyway of all the bitches, the normie ones described are the worst ones by far. It’s because your so glued-in to these creeps, as noted – via family obligations. However, honestly who wants to be obliged to these preachy, bossy roaches?
Yeah, a whole group on Facebook are cunts, but what of it? Well, I guess it depends on which group of cunts. The Trump ones are sort of dig in a way – but I don’t really like them. The other ones I totally sympathize with a lot of their psychopathic ramblings – cause honestly, it’s from the heart and it’s often the truth. Well, the truth isn’t coming from the Trump crowd.
Well, it’s kind of like with women. The bottom line, the US won’t solve the major issue to South Korea’s heart – the reunification of the nation. That’s why they cuck Americans right and left with insults like “Bin Laden”. Yep, to be the hero there and be American, you’d have to solve the hero’s quest – or you’re going to be cucked -and especially if you can’t please them in other ways also (be a successful teacher etc..).
Myself, I was a teacher there – and subject to horrific abuse. Well, I had my pleased and unpleased students – but even the pleased ones were probably nice to me in class, but deep down they wanted to cuck that American rat inside me.
Yeah, if you can push it in the woman will love it. They will be way nicer to you, but rest assured, a man that’s a coward, but can give good sex – will still get cucked.
In fact, I could imagine a scenario where a man can’t give good sex – but he’s a hero to the woman – so maybe she would cheat on him for the sex – but she would never disrespect her hero otherwise – certainly not to his face.
