Who are the farmers? Who are the builders? Who are the defenders? Why?


1. Women were always the farmers and/or gatherers.

2. Women are now builders - almost half (40.2%) of all carpenters are women.

3. Women in the military. Remember "Annie, get your gun"?

LOL because socialist healthcare systems are working so well throughout the rest of the world. You must have missed the whole finland debacle last month. Or the fact that the canadian system is creaking and cracks are appearing in it's sustainability. Or the UK's NHS inevitable collapse in the not too distant future (just ask the guardian, a very left leaning newspaper).

Then we have the cuban system to look at and don't forget venezuela! Bastions of socialist success!!!

Different strokes for different folks. Some guys like a girl that will loom over them while they are deep asleep in bed and she punches her hand through a single pane glass double hung window in anger waking them up in the process to tend to their now bleeding fist.

Too detailed to be random? Oh yeah. Did I find it sexy? No, because doing dark crazy things is nowhere near as hot as being solid. But being a reasonably intelligent guy with experience, I made absolute sure it was “her idea” to break up out of “her own” disinterest.

AOC would plunge a butcher knife repeatedly, 20-30 times, before punching a window by my perspective. The only hotness would be the seething rage rapidly drawing and exhaling her breath between her clenched teeth and a bead of sweat trickling from her forehead alongside the bridge of her nose.

As for Canada's healthcare system vs. the U.S.A.'s:



While dissatisfaction with the U.S. health care system is widespread among Americans, Canada's health care system enjoys high levels of satisfaction among its own population. ... Canada provides universal access to health care for its citizens, while nearly one in five non-elderly Americans is uninsured.

Just have to ride this out a few more years.

We are literally at the end of a large portion of the mainstream media, these ever increasing and ridiculous outbursts are nothing but death throes.


Interesting theory. What do you base this on? I see the MSM going a totally different direction. I see the MSM only getting worse. It will be nothing but 100% opinion and virtue signaling during an actual broadcast.

Oh my. This is just sad.

1. In a hunter gatherer society this is true but I didn't think we were talking about 80,000 years ago. But if we look a little closer the numbers bear out that men were far more efficient for feeding the tribe. 3 ounces of meat provides about 100 calories. 3 ounces of fruit/vegetables provides 4.

2. Even in your own stat the builders are men, by a 20% margin. I just had a house built, ZERO women built any part of it. Not one. From digging the hole, to foundation pouring to framing and roofing to brick and stucco to drywall and floors, I never saw a woman doing any job. But then again, carpentry isn't building shelter, is it? So you've presented something that is in no way applicable to the point I was making.

3. Women make up about 20% of the armed forces (80% of military jobs are non-combat jobs). As of a few months ago, there were about 800 women assigned to combat roles. Out of 400k combat jobs.

I'm not saying women provide no value to the world. They obviously do. In fact, I think we should all be treated equally. Especially under the law. I'm just against ignoring biological differences in some attempt to make people feel better about themselves.

Ignorance is bliss. Enjoy your 18 week waits and the inevitable collapse down the road.

That is the median number and wait times are getting shorter and shorter. Can't even say nice try.

Your posts do indeed say that women are of no value except in woman's roles. You are disingenuous.

You can still have private health care if you do not wish to have the free health care, but at least every citizen of the nation is covered. I am unsure as to why Americans oppose such a system of health care for all of your citizens.

There maybe waiting lists which are not ideal but being seen at some point as opposed to(if you have no insurance) never is still better.

If you have an emrgency such as broken leg from fall at work, or injury at home it is nice to know that the NHS will look after you without the need to take your wallet (other than for the over priced car park)

If that's how you want to take that, then in the same token, men provide little/no value in womens roles. Why do you place a smaller value on womens roles?

Why do you think men provide little/no value in women's roles? Are you speaking for women?

Because I've lived in a capitalist society that rewards those who excel. There's a reason some career fields are dominated by women.

Then what are the problems with that system, I do not live in the US, so its a genuine question?

You've got a long way to go until you catch up with the US's 5-6 week wait times for specialists.

So be it and I won't have to open my wallet or take a mortgage out on my home when the time comes.

Nor do most americans. Those who aren't insured by an employer are likely on medicare/medicaid.
