"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…"
"Iron sharpens iron." A place for men to impact each other by debate and exchange of ideas. This is a group where no ideas are off limits. If your motto is, "I never talk about politics or religion," this group is probably not for you. A "gym" for thinkers.See More
"I know it's a tad outdated, but this conversation caught my eye. I've had problems with boundaries with my family since before I got married and now that my son was recently born, it seems like the issues have resurfaced. For example, over…"
"I personally carry when the situation merits it-i.e. walking through my neighborhood (not exactly the best place, to be honest-drugs are a serious issue, the sheriff just shut down TWO meth labs within 6 miles of my house), going into a seedy part…"
I have come to the realization that I have a fondness for the Golden Leaf, in virtually all it's forms. I love a good cigar with a nice scotch (or just walking around the neighborhood), nothing like a pipe to calm the nerves after a long, hard day, hookah is just ace, and well, as much as I hate to admit it, even a good Class A Cigarette has it's place in my weekly tobacco usage (more on that in a moment).I want to learn all I can about tobacco as a hobby (not growing it, YET)-the different…See More
Hey everyone, I recently graduated college last December with a B.S. in biology and am currently pursuing a research career in the medical field. I began applying about four months ago, and have filled out nearly a hundred applications spanning multiple hospitals and states. I have had 2 interviews at the same hospital which came down to me and one other individual, but in both circumstances, the applicant who was chosen had worked the same position previously.I currently hold a part time job…See More
"I have a handgun and a concealed carry permit. I don't ordinarily carry a gun. I've never been in a situation where I would have used it if I had had it, and the odds of such a situation arising are, for me, usually…"
