I started noticing Coates for his formidable perspective maybe 3-4 years ago. And ya know, yeah, I’m smart (enough…), but mine is not a head that has read and retained much of the great works. So it’s not as if I could recognize that he might have compared favorably to the old masters. Baldwin I guess is the one that jumps out at people. I merely noticed powerful argumentation there, something unique. http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2015/07/this-years-model.php It’s a dispiriting thing, to have said Coates is the kind of thing shallow people think is deep, dumb people think is smart… http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2015/07/the-fire-this-time-1.php Those lawyers at Powerline, they do have a conservative lawyer A-hole thing going on. Rich Lowry in Politico has a piece out that makes the same point. Its better.
I like to grill, and such that it’s a recent thing, it is a realization. http://www.slate.com/articles/double_x/doublex/2015/07/grilling_feminism_and_masculinity_a_grand_unified_theory.html But I don’t have this conflict. Ya know, there’s a lot of dudes that over think things amirite.
I agree with this counterintuitive observation http://www.bloombergview.com/articles/2015-07-22/americans-air-conditioning-habit-is-eco-friendly Rush says the air conditioning thing, such that a couple writers in the last week have tried to shame Americans for using it, is a tell that the Pol Pot greenies would come after AC next. I can see that. We need VOX to weigh in to know for sure.
I’m just not sure the country is ready to elect a sexless nag as President: http://hotair.com/archives/2015/07/23/hillary-even-open-minded-white-people-feel-a-twinge-of-fear-at-the-sight-of-a-black-man-in-a-hoodie/ Does she read the news? Being suspicious of black kids in hoodies is a white privilege / bigotry thing. And look… I’m not all peace and love myself. I navigate the breadth of downtown on foot, and I size people up by stereotype. Had to squeak by 5 kids my size on the sidewalk yesterday, I did not do something evasive like cross the street, cuz they weren’t even subtly shifty. But anyway, the hoody thing seems such a retrograde sentiment in the age of BLM. And I’m thus surprised she said it, as the thought is the Democrats are going to be more dependent on their base than independents to whom those thoughts might ring.
I’d say it’s more cortisol and less testosterone. http://www.minnpost.com/second-opinion/2015/07/dad-bod-real-fathers-do-put-extra-weight-say-researchers IE, aging. Men without kids can probably more easily delay age’s superficial effects. But, doesn’t mean they’ll live longer, statistics seem to show the opposite…. I was a slim man, weigh 205 now, have a belly, would look real good at 170 but I dunno how to get there… I’m not really overeating now. I am walking a bit more than 10 miles a week fer sure, and weight hasn’t budged.
