We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Got anything on surviving left-wing, blame-the-man-for-everything, woman-is-the-n****-of-the-world, nut-job marriage counseling? How about some books on nut-job psychiatry in general? Books on how to address "denial is one of the signs, you know" logic? Or perhaps on how I can accept that my denial is one of the signs?
"Got anything on surviving left-wing, blame-the-man-for-everything, woman-is-the-n****-of-the-world, nut-job marriage counseling?"
God. I went to two of those. If I had said my wife tried to kill me with a knife last night they would have asked why I was trying to limit my wife's self-expression. I could write a book about it called People of the Bone Stupid.
Re: M. Scott Peck - I was rather under the impression he had lost his mind by the time he wrote People of the Lie.
For years I use to think all people were crazy, and I was normal. Now I know I am crazy, and all people are normal. I haven"t felt better in years. The next time your wife comes at you with a knife, do what I do; come at her with a gun, after all she"s normal, and I'm crazy. Who wears the pants in your house?
I've always worn pants. I don't have a problem with a woman who wants to assert herself, it's just...I won't be anyone's bitch. We've done much better since we gave up the whack-job, liberal feminist, psy/ops therapy and had a few brawls.
The wife with a knife was just a hypothetical situation w/ the anticipated therapeutic response. I thought the hyperbole suited the subject.
