God does listen

Through November 11, in anticipation of the nationalist march in Warsaw, I will occasionally post some thoughts on various hymns that are associated with the 1944 Warsaw Uprising. This one is a bit different from the others I posted because it was performed in 2015. That year was not a hopeful time in Poland, nor in Obama’s America (remember all those Supreme Court rainbow-rulings in the early summer of 2015, just before Donald Trump announced his candidacy?). Poland was still ruled by the pro-EU left wing party that had snubbed Viktor Orban and signed an agreement to take in their mandated quota of Angela Merkel’s sons.

In that hopelessness, the song was plea to Lord Almighty. It’s titled “The Home Army Prayer.” He answered the very prayer you see in the video below: two months later that year in 2015, the patriotic opposition party swept into power. Their first act once in office was to restore the rightful place of the Crucifix in the national senate chamber. Their second act was to rescind all prior agreements regarding the admission of migrants into the country.

The tenor’s performance is rousing, you can see a young woman moved to tears at one point. Other observations:

One, the average age of people in the audience appears to be considerably higher than in the same event’s August 1st 2018/2019 commemorations. In 2015, youth had tuned out, young families with children had tuned out. The year 2015 was the last days of the frivolous era, with its lack of faith in the future. Watch videos from the same concert this year or the previous two, and how much more youth, vigor, and spirit is present.

Two: as Western civilization, we’re all in this together.

Translated lyrics:

Oh Lord who are in heaven
Hold out your righteous hand!
We call to You from all directions
For a Polish home and Polish arms.

Ref.
Oh God, crush this sword that slashes the land
Let us return to a free Poland!
One that’s a fortress of new strength
Our home, our country.

O Lord hear our pleas
Oh hear our vagabond’s song!
From the banks of Warta, Vistula, San, and Bug Rivers
The martyrs’ blood calls you!

The song was written and composed in 1939 by Adam Kowalski, who was part of the expatriate Polish army in Romania. The song later took on its informal title “Home Army Prayer.”

  2. This is why multiculturalism and mixing different religions and races will always lead to strive, conflict , and failure. How could a non-Polish person ever appreciate the importance of these types of cultural expressions to the Polish people, nation, and the collective Polish soul ? How could they ever appreciate what the Polish people have been through historically ? In fact why would some ” migrant ” from Pakistan or anywhere else even care ?

    The US is a perfect example when foreigners infect a nation and disparage its heritage, traditions, symbols, and culture. Therefore, destroying the fabric that held that nation together. Poland must not allow this to happen.

  3. — How could a non-Polish person ever appreciate the importance of these types of cultural expressions to the Polish people, nation, and the collective Polish soul ?

    Very well said. Only on the objective universal aesthetic level, and in how it is parallel to their own aspirations. But not on that communal plane that connects with the individual soul. I don’t get roused by La Marseillaise the way a French person would but it still resonates powerfully with that, which I have in common with the French nation. Especially that Mireille Mathieu performance. I can appreciate Kurosawa as a film connoisseur but I wont get his work the way an ordinary non intellectual Japanese person would. You are absolutely right, the mixing of cultures and people, even very similar ones, is destructive. It flattens the peaks.

  4. I admire the Poles, but I don’t feel it on an emotional level.
    I wish Europeans well, but I have no desire to move there. I would actually prefer to move to Central or South America than Europe.

  5. ” I admire the Poles, but I don’t feel it on an emotional level. ”

    However, you have an emotional connection to South / Central America ? Why are you here exactly, wouldn’t the La Raza page be more appropriate ?

  6. ” You destroy a people by destroying the Soul of the People. Culture is that soul. ”

    “Let the American youth never forget, that they possess a noble inheritance, bought by the toils, and sufferings and blood of their ancestors; and capable, if wisely improved, and faithfully guarded, of transmitting to their latest posterity all the substantial blessings of life, the peaceful enjoyment of liberty, property, religion, and independence…Republics are created by the virtue, public spirit, and intelligence of the citizens. They fall, when the wise are banished from the public councils, because they dare to be honest and the profligate are rewarded, because they flatter the people, in order to betray them.” — Joseph Story, Commentaries on the Constitution

  7. “Two: as Western civilization, we’re all in this together.”

    Yes. Turning large swaths of the American Public away from atomization is the first step in winning the fight. I cant even go to the gym these days without getting mildy harrassed by Normies. Something happened after Trump won that elevated the hostility and infighting to a new height. This is in Trump country too.

    Also, PA thank you for these Polish posts as of late. Its awoken something inside of me that has me determined to make a trip to my Polish ancestors homeland. Do you have any literature youd recomend on Polish history? Other than an old Polish lingustics book I have from the 1970s (IIRC) my library is empty on these matters.

  8. — why Americans of any European heritage have been largely told that they have No Culture.

    It’s astounding how the Dishonest Guests pushed that lie. There are regional American cultures that are self evident at modicum of travel, along with a collective American culture centered on colonial and west-expansion heritage.

    — I would actually prefer to move to Central or South America than Europe

    That makes perfect sense from one perspective: that of moving somewhere to retire or spend extended time as an expat with an American source of income. I know one older couple that speak highly of Ecuador. They have visited that country like seven times in recent years. Not even the capital Quito, but a particular small town deeper in the Andes. From what they told me and the photos I saw, it’s a nice place. Clean streets, majestic colonial Spanish architecture, churches that rival Europe’s in beauty. Very friendly people from what I see. Most of them are full-blooded Indios, many still wearing traditional clothes. Third World people are surprisingly gentle and relaxed in their own countries. Abroad as immigrants — especially as welfare parasites — they take on a conqueror mentality. That’s a fairly universal human pattern.

    You can stay in gorgeous little hotels with exquisite gardens and tiny restaurants with mindblowingly delicious looking culinary presentation very inexpensively. From that perspective, Latin America is great if you do your homework. If you actually want to live there as an older expat, I imagine that as long as you obey the unwritten laws of police and any criminal gangs [by minding your own business] and not flaunting your presence, you should live pretty well.

    In similar spirit, Costa Rica is a popular destination for American boomer expats, and people who travel there for cheap but high qualty dental and elective-surgery work. Costa Rica is quite White. I laughed as I once heard someone tell me about how he and his black American tourist/friend were going into a club. The White guy was waved in with a smile. His black friend was sternly stopped and searched for weapons and drugs. The black guy was furious but before he could get too vocal, the bouncer told him to shut up – “because this isn’t the United States, chico.”

    HOWEVER: there is anther way of looking as moving to Latin America, and that’s to live there with the objective of continuing your cultural and genetic lineage. Now that’s a complete nonstarter. In the best of likely scenarios, your child[ren] will assimilate with their local age-mates and be well liked, speak fluent local-dialect Spanish… and they will marry into the local population, ending one’s national line. And then, there are worse-case scenarios involving lone young White people without the protection of being a tourist or of a ruling class.

    — “Let the American youth never forget, that they possess a noble inheritance, bought by the toils, and sufferings and blood of their ancestors”

    Look up the “Ft. McHenry Visitor Center” video on YouTube. It’s 9:54 minutes long. They play it when you go into the welcome center there. It illustrates the 1812 Battle of Baltimore. It’s quite moving. You walk away from it respecting the founding America not as some bullshit “nation of immigrants” but as a small confederation of colonies with a very real identity.

    — Do you have any literature youd recomend on Polish history?

    If you want a thorough history but still written for lay audiences and in highly engaging prose, buy English historian Norman Davies’ “God’s Playground.” It’s a two-volume set. I have the 1982 edition on my shelf, newer editions are in print on Amazon..

  9. “Also, PA thank you for these Polish posts as of late. Its awoken something inside of me that has me determined to make a trip to my Polish ancestors homeland”

    You’re very welcome. It’s a genuine pleasure for me to hear that.

  10. I was definitely thinking of it as a retiree on an American income. I would move into an expat community, not try to fit in with the locals. I can’t even speak Spanish. I’m guessing some of the locals appreciate the source of income and will treat you well as long as they are getting paid. It goes without saying I wouldn’t get involved with their politics or have any to do with their drug cartels.
    Europeans don’t want Americans meddling in their affairs. I think both Jared Taylor and Richard Spencer have been banned from speaking in some European countries.

  11. There was an article or two at Stormer about American retirees in those South American towns or villas or whatever they are properly called; those that still allow a nice lifestyle for people with American sized pensions.

    In my humble opinion such retirement option is not long for this world.

    On the other hand, since a typical retirement is only 10 or 15 years (and then end stage) it’s very possible that it works out for some people, all swell sweet and peachy as can be! They say the produce down there is great. Tomatillos, avocados, a bunch of stuff you never even heard of.

    I used to want to travel to South America, on “ten bux a day” or whatever was the meme 30 years ago. South America had the appeal of being a magic place. Who was the hipster singer songwriter, Joe Jackson or was it Elvis Costello? w/ the line that South America was “coming into style.”

    Blame It on Rio was a great 80s movie, with the actress that was the Brook Shields lookalike. Michael Caine played the — gasp! — dirty old man who slept with her, his best friend’s daughter, while they were on vacation. (She looked to have nice bush.)

  12. “…wouldn’t get involved with their politics or have any to do with their drug cartels.”

    I took you for a runner-signorina for the china white; glad you cleared that up…

    I have close ones around Cuenca and sprinkled in Santiago. Enticing setups they’ve got. You’ll acquire Spanish-speaking in the way the better offshore dealers pick up hearsay-piñatas of reputation in the cities.

    -Looking forward to the Uprising hymns & appraisals, PA.

  13. ” I was definitely thinking of it as a retiree on an American income. I would move into an expat community, not try to fit in with the locals. ”

    How respectful of the host country and people. Thats a very ((( tribal ))) mindset you’ve got there. Not to mention, its just another case of huwhytes wanting to run away from their problems instead of facing them.

  14. @Anon
    “How respectful of the host country and people”
    This is all hypothetical btw. I don’t have any concrete plans in place. I get what you say about separating myself, but I’m just being realistic. I doubt the women in those countries would want to befriend me. It’s hard making friends as is, and when you speak different languages, grew up in different countries and are of a different race, I imagine it’s even harder.
    I wouldn’t be having children, which is the main reason I’m not a threat to them. Also, I would not meddle in their politics (even local ones). I would also not try and change their culture, even if I did not like certain things. For instance, they litter a lot in those countries. I wouldn’t like it, and wouldn’t do it myself, but it’s on them to change that part of their culture.
    I know Fred Reed has written about how some of these expat women come in and complain about things (he lives in a gated community). Many older women tend to complain a lot, unfortunately. All in all, though, I’m guessing older Americans are a net positive for the locals.

  15. Older men can be complainers too. I suspect that people who do travel to less developed countries might be on the better end of the spectrum of this personality trait.

  16. My other point was I don’t think Americans have very high status in Europe. Maybe some do, but most not really.
    CH once put up a post about repatriating to Europe and all these Europeans came on saying “No, we absolutely don’t want you”.

  17. CH once put up a post about repatriating to Europe and all these Europeans came on saying “No, we absolutely don’t want you”.

    It was probably PA who would get credit for making that defense (so to speak: making that defense of Europe).

    His feelings on that subject are well known. Matt King, the internet legend, on at least one occasion criticized PA for having that position.

    It gets to the larger topic of: Where is Our Home?

    So many White Americans have been displaced from their homes that it’s become the common story of America. And of course White America’s new enemies, which is to say the Coalition, love to rub that fact in their faces.

    Green green, it’s green they say
    on the far side of the hill
    Green green, I’m goin away
    to where the grass is greener still

    That’s an old song that we sang in elementary school. But what about when there’s nowhere left to go?

  18. Anyone showing up as a moneyed stranger in a foreign country, will be resented. How could it not be like that?

    In the old days, which is to say prior to approximately 1970, Americans abroad were feared because they still had some dignity of bearing, and also their government was probably willing to help them out if they got into trouble.

    Now it’s not like that. Anyone traveling abroad should watch the hit television show [ yeah yeah yeah I know ] LOCKED UP ABROAD.

    That show is so good. I went on a television binge and watched all those shows, all 100 or so episodes, some few years ago; and being not a part (so much) of the Normie Zeitgeist, was unaware that Everyone else (who was anyone, which is to say middle class and up) also had watched that show! Turns out it was like the number one hit show on television, for people watching shows to counteract their seasonal depression by living surrogate lives through the characters onscreen.

    And one of the reasons it struck such a chord, was that it was HUGELY implicitly White. The heroes were soft-assed Westerners who were put to the test, and turned out to be heroes. Instead of dying they decided not to; which was an interesting meta commentary on the nature of our genotype, or phenotype; or something. In spite of looking like a pile of poop, oft times beneath lies sterner stuff.

  19. I don’t think you should wear tennis shoes in public. You can wear whatever you want, but know that that’s the number one thing to avoid, if you want to look like “class.”

    But on the other hand if you are wearing a track suit and walking around Brooklyn and can back that up, then tennis shoes yes of course.

    Do boomers get a pass on this? Do zoomers, do Nickers? Ffs Nickers unironically listen to rap (or so they say).

    Boomers will also wear fleece vests: see for example Rand Paul and his onstage appearance w/ Charlie Kirk. He wore a fleece vest and a tie, and khakis with center pleats. Unbelievable, really. [ this exact criticism was made exactly, by a BBS commenter ]

    Jayoh de la Ray, of TRS infamy, loved to talk about clothes, and how not to dress like a nobody. I just heard his voice today, on a podcast series that showed up on Tanstaafl’s RS feed.

  20. Real heritage Americans could never immigrate to Europe. Colonizing Canada is far more likely. Again, diversity amongst the white race is both real and chaotic. Political “diversity” neither hides this reality nor quells its volatility. American whites have legitimate claim on ALL of North American. Canadians are, by-and-large, conducive to assimilation. May the best whites win.

  21. Well then.

    ” The Refugees and Immigrants also say they’re here to stay whether you like it or not. ”

  22. The only question is whether one can recognize the inherent anti-white Supremacy of Islam and the pathology of anti-racism dooming the “religion’s” zealots to a life of perpetual self-annihilation?

    Given the context, when one claims she is “here to stay,” that’s the parasight meme-ing.

  23. In my rural region, where blacks are otherwise sparse (less than 3% in most municipalities), there is a blight of Somalis, Eritreans, and countless other horn-of-Africans, along with assorted medley of others brought in over the last two decades.

    The main occupation that I have seen is overwhelmingly: Meatpacking plants. It’s shift work, very fast-paced (probably debilitating repetitive hand/arm after a decade or two) it’s obviously unpleasant being a meatcarving robot, I’m sure the smells and sights are depressing. Also very importantly, many of these plants are even more rural, to be close to the livestock they process. So they’re in these very remote towns that the employer many times busses in their employees from places 1 or 2 or even 3 hours away.

    The jobs pay anywhere from $16-20/hr, no experience needed. That’s an absolute fortune when these peoples’ average daily wage is probably $5 at best. The companies probably love the migrants, because they don’t complain and are dependent on the employer like a native white could never be. And they’d have to pay way more, half again or double, just for the atrocious work environment.

    Nothing will change until the “free market” teat is turned off for them, let alone all the welfare stuff

  24. If Dubya got one thing “right,” it was his line about the “bigotry of low expectations.” These niggers from Africa along with their nigger cousins in America are the beneficiaries of a “bigotry of low expectations.” In other words, only the insane clowns of Clown World expect these noxious aliens to contribute in any positive way whatsoever. The rest of “us” are just “bigots” with “low expectations.” No reason to be shy about this psychological inequality. And no reason not to highlight the stark difference between the realists and the unreal.

  25. It was inevitable that the racial self-annihilators should show their true face. That “other” races shall facilitate in this racial self-annihilation should be of no shock to any real race realist. The contradiction of a perpetuating self-annihilation is TRUE ENOUGH in the realm of delusional psychosis. In Clown World, the individual who is dying of degeneracy is only exalted when he dies more rapidly. So a race already below-replacement-level fertility pining for sterilization is the King Clown of Clown World.

  26. My other point was I don’t think Americans have very high status in Europe. Maybe some do, but most not really.

    American men do. We are popular with the ladies pretty much everywhere in the world but in the US.

  27. Wes,
    Thanks for answering. The pay is pretty decent, but I’m sure the job is terrible. Just thinking about it makes me want to become a vegetarian.
    I’ve watched several episodes of Locked Up Abroad, which Elk recommended. I love it. What I like is that these people aren’t innocent victims necessarily, they willing got involved in the drug trade. The two girls are the only ones who say they didn’t know what they were doing and were ‘tricked’ lol. Even so, these people get themselves in terrible situations and you feel bad for them. They are mostly intelligent and interesting people and do show a strong will to live and persevere under great hardship. I find the show inspiring.

  28. ” American men do. We are popular with the ladies pretty much everywhere in the world but in the US. ”

    Don’t kid yourself. Have you seen the average ‘merikan male ?

  29. How popular are American men abroad, “with the ladies”?

    That’s would be a good question to try and suss out. It would take some sussing, eliminating the selection bias, on both ends of the spectrum: the men on the offer, and the sort of women willing to go for them. Both those will be a particular sample and not representative of the population group at large.

    **************

    But to the question: Has the quality of White American men deteriorated, since the Industrial Revolution began and Darwinian selection stopped being the same thing as it was; moreso than other categories of White men? These are two separate questions.

    The other factor to consider in evaluating the popularity of American men “with the ladies” abroad, is the money factor. Do the American men-under-consideration, have more money than the local men? Social credit probably counts more than does money though.

    It used to be a viable mating strategy, for the American beta, to go to Lithuania and get some 8+ pussy, and maybe a bride. Nowadays though that just doesn’t fly, for reasons. And not even considering the ethics of it.

    I hate (no I don’t) to bring up the genital set status thingy, but it would be relevant to this question. To what extent to Euro women really, actually, consider American men “sexual cripples”? That designation (“sexual cripple”) is kicked around the Intactivst discussion communities, and I certainly don’t hesitate to use it as a weapon of rhetoric; but how true is it, that to Euro women who are used to NATURAL sex, American men are “less than,” while in the vagina?

    My opinion is that it is a very real thing. And in fact, they say that there are studies in legitimate medical journals, in Polish as it happens, that demonstrate a correlation between intact male genitals, and the production during intercourse, by the female, of the bonding chemical oxytocin. I am not making this up; this is a factoid that is kicked around Intactivist communities. If true this is a damning thing indeed. Ten Dillion Dollar lawsuit.

  30. ” American men do. We are popular with the ladies pretty much everywhere in the world but in the US. ”
    Don’t kid yourself. Have you seen the average ‘merikan male ?

    I have lived abroad for over 30 years. The ones I know generate a lot of interest. Quit being such a putz all the time.

  31. Sex tourism was a big manosphere subject ten years ago, as in, yay sex tourism but we don’t call it sex tourism. Western (((pornographers))) paying Prague girls cash to flash skin and maybe do more for the camera was a thing twenty-five years ago.

    One guy a decade ago blogged about how he visited one of the Baltic countries. It was pretty funny, it sounded like he made it up while playing a video game. In his story he goes into a club in that country, that happened to be full of Indians and British black men and he instantly bonded with them because alpha. Local blonde beauties everywhere, in that story. Then he encounters a level-one Russian thug whom he disables with a judo toss. Then I think he got to Boss Level fight with another Russian or something, whom he vanquished. The bouncer, or maybe it was the bartender, gave him an a-ok head nod to underscore the manosphereness of the story.

    Another blogger, “The Spearhead,” splashed cold water in some of its commenter’s faces after he visited Latvia and blogged about it. [He was married with a couple of kids, I think or divorced, not a PUA character either way]. His readers were asking him First World fiki fiki fantasy questions in the comments, along the lines of “Hey, were all the hot young blondes lining up to marry brown or middle aged, or brown and middle aged men like me?” He replied rather emphatically as I recall it: “No. Latvian women marry Latvian men, they are normal people who do things normally like everyone else.”

    As to the original question, women everywhere will be curious about a man from somewhere else given good presentation on his part. Age, ethnicity, height, charm, and intelligence matter.

    What doesnt work for gents is when they’re seen as part of a loud drunk group of foreigners. What chick wants that kind of a reputation. Someone who recently lived in Kiev told me that big groups of horndog Brits and Swedes have resulted in the local girls, as a general rule, going about with huge bitch shields for any foreigner.

  32. Sex tourism was a big manosphere subject ten years ago, as in, yay sex tourism but we don’t call it sex tourism.

    Well said. Sex tourism ties in quite a bit with drug smuggling which is the topic of Locked Up Abroad.

    I’ve watched several episodes of Locked Up Abroad, which Elk recommended. I love it. What I like is that these people aren’t innocent victims necessarily, they willing got involved in the drug trade. The two girls are the only ones who say they didn’t know what they were doing and were ‘tricked’ lol. Even so, these people get themselves in terrible situations and you feel bad for them.

    Yeah that’s a good summary. All the characters (of that show) take responsibility to some varying degree, some more and some less others, for the situation that they ended up in. They all got trapped eventually.

    American Gen X’ers pretty much almost all of us, were fairly naive about the ways of the world. And not just because we were young. We were sheltered and protected, but for that matter so were our parents.

    I meet a lot of local characters, who like me are sort of “townies” but some of them have not been able to grow out of it, or even see the forest for the trees, or more to the point, even know that there’s a big world out there. That’s why the silly stupid mock advice of ALWAYS wear leather shoes is good advice: so as not to look like one of those guys.

    One time about ten years ago, I was using an ATM at the local (non-dangerous) mall / location. I was putting money into the machine as opposed to taking it out, which seems relevant. These two leather clad enforcer type gangster guys were suddenly walking down the mall corridor and passed by as I was doing my business; they could not have been more out of central casting for Chechen mafia. What they were doing in that location is anyone’s guess.

    As a striving status seeker, I made eye contact and tried to let them know that not all of us are suburban toads.

  33. There’s no way I was mistaken, in figuring them for who they were. They stuck out so much. Obv I don’t specifically know whether they were “Chechen” mafia, which in the popular mind is a sort of catch-all for the Russian mafia but not the Russian-Russian mafia. We all saw the movie with Viggo and so know about the Chechens! They get different tattoos or something, or like to use more curved blades for their “wet work.”

    Southern Russian is what I have heard them called, sometimes.

  34. The point has been made many times, on this blog and elsewhere, that White America not having its own ESTABLISHED and RECOGNIZED criminal underclass, is NOT A GOOD THING.

    In an ideal world, such an underclass would not have to be a part of things. But here on Planet Earth, someone is going to fill that niche.

    There’s a clip from Sopranos, which is the opening clip to the episode in question; it’s gotta be in the first or second season, wherein it begins w/ a (mock) interview of an Italian mobster who breaks down this same idea for the boobus Americans, aka the network viewers, aka the fans, aka YOU. He basically says what I said just said above, but he uses different words, and a different tone of voice and a more New Jersey dialect. He says that as long as man has certain appetites for gambling and sex and relateds, that there will be a class of people providing those services.

    It’s a very interesting topic of consideration, to consider who is moving in to provide those services, which now more than ever are in demand, and only going to be more so as long as we are not yet dying of hunger and warfare, and all the while sort of dying of despair: give me feel good substitutes please, in the form of hookers and drugs and gambling.

    To be honest, I don’t see much in the way of what’s moving in, to fill that need. I am fairly removed from things, but perhaps also, the reality is that Americans are as of yet pacified not be illicit drugs and activities, but by

    1) TV
    2) Carbs and sugar
    3) Booze

    and are in generally, so fat and happy that they don’t even have the 3d6 vigor points to demand things like sex and drugs, and gambling.

    Upon second thought and as concluded just now. We don’t even need an underclass because we have fat sugar and the mall and sports. We are so lame!

  35. ” resulted in the local girls, as a general rule, going about with huge bitch shields for any foreigner. ”

    The Costa Rican version of that is pretending that they don’t know English

  36. — American Gen X’ers pretty much almost all of us, were fairly naive about the ways of the world. And not just because we were young

    It feels like yesterday but it was a long time ago. I was around 30 when I started getting into proto-altRight online discussions and 20-25 in the early 90s when I had those kinds of thoughts running through my mind.

    GenX created the AltRight.

    Millennials led the 2015/2016 meme war.

    Silent and Boomer luminaries transmitted old-Right Bircher wisdom. Pat Buchanan, The Derb, Jared Taylor, the late Samuel Francis and Lawrence Auster. Camille Paglia weaponized rhetoric against the Frankfurt School.

    The red pill AltRight scene was our, GenX’s, big last party as young men. Thirties, early forties then. Pickup, whether thru experience or vicariously, was exciting. Out there was also the last gasp of Free Love, which peaked before our time in the 1970s.

    We’re brilliantly sketched by the Dr. Murdoch character. We’re now where we are expected to figure it out and most definitely, to tell others that it’s gonna be okay. That’s what’s expected of us and we’re growing into it.

    We can no longer charmingly pull off the lovable lost-and-searching young man like the young Murdoch. That’s still the Millennials.

  37. @Elk
    “ALWAYS wear leather shoes”‘
    There are times when sneakers make sense so I won’t totally agree with this, however you make a good point. It is a pleasure to see a well dressed, pulled together classy man of any age. I see so many slobs that they do stand out (at least where I live). It just cheers me up.

  38. PA has said we need our own criminal underclass and I agree. Boys like outlaws and rule breakers (so do girls). They need to see their own people in those roles.

  39. We’re now where we are expected to figure it out and most definitely, to tell others that it’s gonna be okay. That’s what’s expected of us and we’re growing into it.

    We’re growing into it, together, and for all the right reasons, those being for Truth & Beauty.

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: PA, you have a good pulse on these dynamics and can express them in ways where it all sounds so familiar to musings I’ve mulled over. Some were buried, and in many ways I suppressed them due to the usual virtue signaling desires, et al, but once I finally woke up, I knew I wasn’t too far off. I’m a touch late relative to others in catching these dynamics but I am a quick study.

    I see so many slobs that they do stand out (at least where I live). It just cheers me up.

    This is what it is like at my current job and even the prior two. Once I finally cleaned up my style, I instantly stood out. I’ve been able to make a clean start at my new job. At times when I wear a polo shirt, it gets too chilly in our office and I’d take a sports coat with me because there was just something sloppy about wearing a hoodie or regular jacket. Talk about standing out. I always wonder what people make of it. The ladies are more eager to want to talk with me, which I welcome. Some of the slobs–not so much.

    On the flipside, it’s so nice to see women wearing dresses and/or skirts. It’s quite a stark contrast as at my last gig only one lady truly dressed like a lady and all the rest just plopped on whatever was available.

  40. I’ve gotten some more information on Charlie Kirk. My impression is he is being paid to advocate for Israel on the right. People need to make a living so I’m not judging him for this. He is someone we might be able to negotiate with and come to an agreement on some issues. On other issues, we will be at odds.

    And Judas needed his 30 shekels of silver too.

  42. Yeah, I see where you guys are coming from. If he wants to advocate for Israel, he should be a citizen of Israel not the United States.

  43. 60 is the new 30 until about 65, at which it becomes 65.

    I had a good joke along those lines, awhile ago, which was good in its context but now will seem “random.”

    Middle Class. It’s the new upper middle class.

    In case it doesn’t convey, the meaning is that by virtue of remaining in the middle class, you are sorta in the upper middle class now. On the other hand it seems like the economy is still rolling along. So scratch that joke: it sucks.

    Another joke that needs some work, is about Shop (class). Shop class: is it even a thing anymore? I did well in shop: when I pulled the tail on that elephant, the thing lit up. Never took it to the next level though.

    Anyways the joke is: Shop: where we learn to affix things, together

  44. “…the Boomers are dying out and finally realizing (they won’t admit it but they know) that 60 is not the new 30, and that people by and large do not like them.”

    Sixty was the new 30 only for three serially premature Boomers: Jules Henri Poincaré, P. Ruiz Picasso, and Señor Anton Schindler. The only cases of that fresh-faced backstepping which I’m aware of. Whether they were truly by and largely appreciated or liked by their eras is anyone’s guess.

  45. As to the original question, women everywhere will be curious about a man from somewhere else given good presentation on his part. Age, ethnicity, height, charm, and intelligence matter.
    What doesnt work for gents is when they’re seen as part of a loud drunk group of foreigners. What chick wants that kind of a reputation. Someone who recently lived in Kiev told me that big groups of horndog Brits and Swedes have resulted in the local girls, as a general rule, going about with huge bitch shields for any foreigner.

    I was talking about living there and dating women with the intention of an LTR. Sorry if a lot of people want masturbation material instead. I don’t do sex tourism and never have. I respect people and expect it in return from them. That works well everywhere in the world. I find ONS demeaning. I will be headed to Kiev in a couple of weeks on business. I will look to see how the local women act. I get a lot of friendly smiles here in Germany and anywhere else when I am out and about and since I am married I enjoy the brief attention and move along. When I was looking for a wife, I saw a lot of guys who looked as if they had no idea that a suit existed. They encountered bitch shields then too. Those that were polished and gentlemanly attracted interest. My guess is that is still the case. Women have radar for men that don’t have honorable intentions or lack sophistication. The days of that clown Jerry are gone and should never have existed. I would have punched him out myself.
