"Don't follow your passion" -- Mike Rowe

Started this discussion. Last reply by Matthew J Dorry Nov 5. 382 Replies

I've been recently impressed with Mike Rowe's non-partisan push for a return to economic practicality, working with your hands, skilled trade labor, etc.  My attention was initially drawn by his…Continue

Should boys be held back a year in school?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Shane Oct 7. 74 Replies

In light of our recent Return of Kings article, I thought it might be interesting to see what's coming from the other extreme.  Courtesy of "The Good Men Project" -- a site run by women, wherein…Continue

What'cha watchin'? Your manly entertainment recommendations, reviews and discussions ...

Started this discussion. Last reply by Regular Joe Nov 19. 273 Replies

Game of Thrones came up in another thread.  In lieu of hijacking it further, I figured it might be worth having a thread for entertainment recommendations ... books, movies, TV shows, video games,…Continue

Jack Bauer replied to Jake Kempen's discussion Implications of changing my name?
"Very true.  It's the man that makes the name badass ... not the other way around.  If Jack Donaghy was a whiny little punk on that show -- like, for instance, Jack Tripper from Three's Company -- you'd think his name…"

Jack Bauer replied to Ruben Cardenas's discussion A Monthly Menu (To Eat Out Less and Save Money)
"With a family of five, you'd be surprised how fast it adds-up.  At our worst, we were eating fast food a time or two a week, and dining out two or three times a weekend.  That's probably $25 a pop on the fast food, and…"

Jack Bauer replied to Jake Kempen's discussion Implications of changing my name?
"Seems like an extremely superficial change to correct a much deeper problem.  Your name is fine.  A new name won't give you confidence, anyway.  You'll be the same not-so-confident guy you are today.  Changing…"

Jack Bauer replied to AlanR's discussion Transitioning to Self-Employed / Contract Work
"I'd probably just see how much income tax I paid in 2013 or 2014, divide by 12, and subtract my wife's monthly withholding to figure a monthly income tax from me personally.  Then withhold that much per month…"

Jack Bauer replied to AlanR's discussion Transitioning to Self-Employed / Contract Work
"I've been paid as a contractor before, though it wasn't exactly a self-employed situation. As for preparations -- you need to understand the taxes and have the discipline to withhold from yourself, or you're going to get burned…"

GENETICS is EVERYTHING!!! - Rich Piana

""I'm a 25-year steroid user who worked for 20-years to get my arms and chest to look like this ... but genetics is everything."  Not a genius, is he? JB"

Jack Bauer replied to Will's discussion What an offensive question! in the group The Great Debate
"Might've been worth changing the names. JB"

Jack Bauer replied to Will's discussion What an offensive question! in the group The Great Debate
"Sounds like a solid law school exam question to me.  Law school exam questions are typically supposed to be borderline cases where both sides are arguable.  Seeing whether a prospective lawyer is can grasp the legal nuance is the…"

Jack Bauer replied to Ruben Cardenas's discussion A Monthly Menu (To Eat Out Less and Save Money)
"I haven't been a bachelor for a good long while.  But, with my input, my wife plans out two weeks of meals at a time before she makes her grocery shopping list.  Saves us a ton of money on both dining out and on haphazard grocery…"

Jack Bauer replied to John Muir's discussion Budget Battles in the group The Great Debate
"I agree with you on this.  We ought not be rolling-back Dodd Frank in a spending bill.  It should be about spending, not pet projects and unrelated laws. This is sleazy for one of the same reasons Obamacare was sleazy. …"

"Not arbitrarily. I noticed you neglected to respond to the entire rest of that post -- particularly the part where I explained why we're morally superior.  I never said it was just the terrorists.  It isn't.  When families…"

Jack Bauer replied to Regular Joe's discussion Pope Francis Says Animals Go To Heaven in the group Christian Men
"That's not a bad case in favor.  I can see the logic in it. I do hope that I'm not a vegetarian in Heaven, though.  It's hard for me to imagine a paradise without fried chicken. JB"

Jack Bauer replied to Regular Joe's discussion Pope Francis Says Animals Go To Heaven in the group Christian Men
"One of life's less-important unanswerable questions.  I'm not Catholic, so I don't take the Pope's word as law.  And, I'm unaware of a specific Baptist or Protestant doctrine on the matter. Mark me down as…"

What happened, Jack? You piss in Walter's cornflakes?

Jack, you really are an immature man.

Seems to work, Jack, sort of.  Still pops up with yahoo as my mail address, I just switch it to Hotmail.  Thanks.

Jack, be honest.  You're an attorney-you're supposed to tell the truth.  You make veiled fag jokes practically daily to me-"the henhouse" yesterday.  C'mon.

Tried to solve the problem with post.  X's simply won't appear on my posts.  Will try again.

Read Jack.  I don't live in San Francisco.  Also, I don't see many men who spew forth stuff like (you do) here in San Luis Obispo.

If you go back to the sex group (way ironic man!) you'll find that I'm importuning you to stay in the South, for God sakes.

That's probably really where your audience is.

Hi, JB. Welcome to the Philhellene group! I see you've already kicked off some discussion and I look forward to more in the future.

Jack I have to say I am constantly impressed by your posts here. They are very well written and to date have been in line with my own views. The joy in reading them is how structured your points are. It helps me formulate a better understanding of my own opinions. Thank you!
