The Brutality of Reason Example

By Ironcross One-One

Slicing and dicing things into pieces small enough
to be fed to Liberals, Kooks and Anti-Americans.
When feeding Kooks and Anti-Americans
I suggest a potato gun.

If you are the emotional liberal type, this mindspace will make you uncomfortable. If you think my logic or facts are faulty, lets discuss it. When your findings disagree with my findings, that is dialogue. But using rhetoric to disagree with science is demogoguery. No demogoguery! I usually refrain from insults, but occasionally, ignorance and liberal hypocrisy bring out the worst in me.

Polygamy and Polyandry. More Aftershocks of the Right to Privacy

Mark Steyn writes a revealing column about the impact of inventing and redefining "rights". I'm on the fence about polygamy. It's a system with a long-standing track record. It has been in use for the full expanse of recorded history and it works. Even here in the states there are extended polygamous families that function well within western culture. Also, it seems to me that there are more "Marrying Women" than there are "marrying Men". It always has seemed that way to me. I've rarely known a woman to turn down a marriage proposal from any guy that has even a shred of credibility. Such a shift would change the dynamic. Women and men could build families that allow them to balance their careers (career and stay at home moms), meet their taste for intimacy (difference of sensual frequency) and allow far more women to participate in parenthood with a man as something other than a source of genetic material. Perhaps more children having a father figure too. However, as Steyn points out, within entitlement societies there are huge issues that will have to be worked out. Social Security, Insurance, Divorce law, Child nauseum.

Can we redefine marriage to mean any two people but not include any three, five or "your favorite number here". Is there a government responsibility to protect desperate women from manipulative men that collect wives as a hobby?

I can't imagine a big market for polyandry, but should it catch on, who's name does the kid have? "Who's yo daddy " takes on a new meaning.

Stay tuned on this one. It's coming soon to a Supreme Court near you and the whole "Gay Lobby vs the People of Texas" case set this thing up to roll ahead like the 2004 Red Sox. It's gonna be fun to watch.
