"I have to agree with Will. It did not inspire me. As I read it and I began to recognize some consistent talking points, I went online to find out more about Stephen Mansfield. It doesn't say in the book (that I saw) but Mansfield is a former…"
"I couldn't agree with Saxon more. Whatever failures your Dad had, they are still teaching moments. If you can put the resentment of youth aside and forgive (accept) his failures as 'part of life', you can still learn from his…"
"At nineteen, life gives a young man like you all kinds of choices. Like I told my three boys. Make your choices as best you can - and accept responsibility for the outcome - whatever happens. To me, that's the cutting edge of an adult."
"Thanks Titus. You are correct. His name was Harvey Mansfield. I overlooked that when I typed it too fast.I found the book fascinating simply because he did quote from so many resources. You know he's not BS'ing and making something up.…"
"Gotta take a whack at something you quoted or asked: "Is it even true that men are less language oriented than women?"
One of the dominant feminist stereotypes is that 'women are better at communicating than men.' But let's…"
"Hey Clint! The tag caught my curiosity. Just skimmed over it, since I'm prressed for time at the moment. Two remarks:1) Get a copy of Dr. Henry Mansfield's book "Manliness". It is well researched and very insightful.2) The…"
"I belong to a group that assists the Red Cross behind the scenes - so I can share a little bit with you about FEMA. FEMA requires every major metropolitan area to have a disaster plan whether it's a threat of tornatdos, earthquake or hurricane.…"
"I apologize and I realize I should not have mentioned that because it combines two different views: one as an individual and the other as a nation. Most people will get hung up and say we should do one and the same.You're right, that is a…"
"Liam is correct and we have to be VERY careful not to adopt an intolerant attitude towards those who are religious, but just don't believe like we do.
I think I understand what you're getting at. The problem however is not one of political…"
"For the money, I would have to weigh in with a couple of guys who suggested nice, but comfortable loafers. Loafers work year round. Nice looking ones can be matched up with a pair of slacks and a tie for a dress up occassion."
"The predominat rule for a "Sports coat" is that the pants should not match (even 'almost' match). That said, there are dressy jeans that can be coordinated with a proper sports coat. In addition, there are nice colored twill…"
"I carry both. I don't see a problem with either. 9mm may take a couple extra shots to stop a really big, really motivated attacker ... but they also carry a lot more rounds, so it evens out.
My .45 carries 7, so it…"
"I'd heard something about it in the past week they were rating the various H2H methods and the SOF was rated higher than Krav, which makes sense as SOF is constantly evolving. They also lead me to believe that there are schools out there…"
"They're bigger rounds with better stopping power. A 9mm is the weapon of choice for many, but it will often take a few hits center-mass to stop somebody. .45s tear bigger holes, so it takes less shots to stop.
"I am 20 years old and in August I bought for the first time cologne from Macy's. I picked out a cologne called Invictus by Paco Rabanne. I enjoy the scent as do my friends and girlfriend. I rarely wear it, only on special occasions like…"
"Why do I say alarmingly? Because they're often the ones called on to interpret for the lawyer, the doctor, the tax accountant, or the teacher--and when the language register goes beyond their ability, they often just fake it. People…"
