The Heart of the Matter

From this post:

if you were looking to exterminate a people, by that I mean destroy their culture and identity, the first thing you would do is put the women to work.

The Stall Door Match

A friend posts on Facebook:
"One of my biggest fears in life just happened. I was in a single restroom and the door wasn’t properly locked and someone opened the door. 😭 "

This reminds the Rifleman of a similar instance...
I was in a stall, which would not latch. I realized this might become a possibility, so preparedness was the key. I was minding my own "business," when someone tried to open the stall door. I actually pushed the door back closed. 

Then a pushing match began!!! - each of us pushing on the stall door!!!

This lasted 3-5 seconds until I called out "occupied!" Then he quit pushing the stall door. To this day, I am still trying to figure out why anybody at any time would feel somebody pushing back on the other side of a stall door, and then continue to try to push to get inside. I mean, you already know that there's somebody in there.

Just doesn't make sense.

Being Feminine, Not Feminist

Seen on social media, with Red Pill comments:

For the woman whose husband makes an "extra stop" after work every evening.
It's the woman 75% of the time.

For the woman who is mourning the loss of a pregnancy that nobody else knew about.
There are support groups for that.  But really, in today's social media culture, the Rifleman doesn't believe it.

For the woman who still leads from the front even although she’s lost inside.
Well, there's your problem right there.  Women aren't designed to lead.

For the woman who was fired for her fourth late because she has been awake for a straight week with a sick child.
If the child is that sick, why are you even going to work???

For the single mom who doesn't know how the utilities are going to stay on this month.
Quit divorcing your husbands who provide, and this stops being a problem. 

For the woman who has gone through 2 IVF's and has tried for five years without success but still shows up to every baby shower for her friends.
Marry young, don't live the party life, and start having children before age 25 with a husband you will not leave, and this will never be a problem. 

For the woman who still hasn't forgiven herself for the abortion that she had 20 years ago.
Never have an abortion.  It's murder. 

For the woman who has a line of judging eyes at her and her children as she counts out coins or has to put something back at the supermarket.
Nobody cares... really.  It's not all about you. 

For the woman that opens the door to the news of her husband being killed overseas three weeks before he was to return home.

For the woman that lives with a quiet anxiety because nobody understands what you could possibly be stressed about.
Low carb paleo.  Get sunshine & exercise. Be a wife and a mother.  This will not be a problem if you do these three simple things. 

For the woman that gives to her family all day- everyday and just.needs.a.break.
Every woman who says this, actually does not give to her family.  The ones who really do, are extremely satisfied as people. 

For the woman that smiles at strangers all day in public- but weeps silently every night.
Low carb paleo. Sunshine and exercise.  Be a wife and a mother.  But, the Rifleman repeats himself. 

For the woman who has wanted to end it all but found strength to carry on.
Low carb paleo. Sunshine and exercise.  Be a wife and a mother.  But, the Rifleman repeats himself. 

For the woman that heard the rumor about herself at church today.
Attend a Bible preaching church - not a social ladder climbing Sunday assembly.  Volunteer. 

For the woman sleeping next to a stranger every night.
That's strictly your choice.  Promiscuity is not a fulfilling lifestyle. A good woman will not sleep with more than 3 different men in her lifetime.

For the woman whose genetics will never allow her to look like the ones in the magazines.
Low carb paleo. Sunshine and exercise.  Be a wife and a mother.  But, the Rifleman repeats himself. 

For the woman that endures one broken relationship after another because there was no father around to teach her what love looks like.
Marry young, don't live the party life, and start having children before age 25 with a husband you will not leave, and this will never be a problem. 

For the woman raising a fatherless daughter and praying that history doesn't repeat itself.
Marry young, don't live the party life, and start having children before age 25 with a husband you will not leave, and this will never be a problem. 

For the woman who loves with all her heart who’s desperate to be loved.
Marry young, don't live the party life, and start having children before age 25 with a husband you will not leave, and this will never be a problem. 

For every single woman that cries in the shower so that nobody else can see. Because if you aren't strong-nobody is.
Low carb paleo. Sunshine and exercise.  Be a wife and a mother.  But, the Rifleman repeats himself. 

Just because the water washes your tears doesn't mean that you don't cry. Just because you cry doesn’t mean that you’re not strong enough to handle it.

I am you. I see you. I am with you, I cry with you. I love you.

Seriously, the entire passage of problems women face can be boiled down into just a handful of categories:
- Take care of yourself: Eat low carb paleo, get sunshine and exercise, and be a wife and a mother. 
- Live right: marry young, don't live the party life, and start having children young.
- Don't leave your husband.  Divorce really isn't cool.  Be a wife and a mother. 
- Be feminine:
* don't lead - follow the lead of your husband.
* don't worry about what others think - worry about your husband first and your children second.  This is called being a wife and a mother.

Really, the only point above that a woman needs support on, is the one whose husband is killed overseas three weeks before he was to come home.  The rest can be solved by a woman committing herself to femininity, and not feminism.

Red Pill For My Son

The Rifleman, in keeping with red pill philosophy, teaches the Ninja proper philosophy. Among these things, the concept of marriage and divorce. For the purpose of this article, we show use two key blog sources for material.

How to Pick the Right Wife - Bold ad Determined
7 Things I Require In The Future Mother Of My Child - Roosh V

Importance of proper spouse selection
Victor Pride of Bold and Determined lays it out:

Picking the right wife is of utmost importance. Marriage is a life-long commitment and requires a great deal of forethought. Getting married without a plan and without any forethought is a terrible decision.

Getting married is a business decision. Marriage is a contract between two entities. You've got to enter into it with the ruthless mind of a determined businessman for it to work.

Purpose of Marriage
Again, Victor Pride is on the money:

There are only two reasons a man should ever get married:

1) He wants to start a family.

2) His career or political ambitions demand he has a wife (he is interested in going into politics).

Roosh V's requirements:
1. She must be between 18-25 years old
2. She must have less than three prior sexual partners, though I prefer a virgin
3. Her physical attractiveness should hover around the 7 range
4. Her skin tone should be within two shades of myself
5. She must be feminine
6. She must want to be a traditional stay-at-home mother
7. She must believe in a god

Victor Pride's requirements:
1) She should be young.
2) She has to come from an intact family with original mother and father.
3) She cannot believe in divorce or even imagine getting a divorce.
4) She must have the natural body type you prefer.
5) She must be image conscious.
6) She must be family oriented and not career oriented.
7) She must be a “good” girl.
8) She must have no problem signing a pre-nuptial agreement.
9) She should change herself for you.
10) She must look up to you and respect you.
11) She should not have any children from a previous affair.
12) She should be a smiler.

Lots of overlap. And all good requirements.

Fasting While Sick

Several weeks ago, The Rifleman completed a week-long fast. With intentions of doing more fasts, a unique situation popped up. One day, The Rifleman had picked up a stomach bug, and was experiencing extreme intestinal discomfort. Bloating and nausea were also among the symptoms.

After one day of symptoms, they subsided a bit. Since The Rifleman had not eaten that day, or in about 24 hours, a few hunger paigns were felt. A very low carb meal provided satiety. However, the abdominal pain and bloating returned within an hour or two.

Since there is a known correlation  between fasting and reduced recovery time from illness, The Rifleman decided to fast this one out. In short, after 48 Hours, the symptoms were all but deleted. The Rifleman maintain the fast and other 24 hours beyond that, just to be on the safe side.

There were no ill effects beyond that, pun intended.

Morning Musings


The real gun problem is that too few people carry one.

Anyone who enters the US illegally should be permanently ineligible to:
- become a citizen,
- apply for or receive any form of welfare,
- work in the US.

The Left needs to face reality: Trump is winning.

When it comes to preparing,
You really don’t have enough trained, provisioned, hard-hearted friends.
Or ammo.
Or water purification.
Or food.
Or medical support.

It's not "Antifa" - it's really Pantifa. Their panties are always in a bunch.

The detail that conservatives tend to forget is that when one party violates a contract, the other party is no longer bound by all of its terms.

If no one is illegal, then no one is a citizen.

The idea that a sovereign nation would not even attempt to enforce its borders defies all logic.

For a friend, no excuse is needed.
For a foe, no excuse will suffice.

Best Liberal Path

Quote of the Day:

Liberal voices are saying the best path forward is to fight for even more leftism, even more aggressively. They are trapped. Things are going K. The populace opposes their ideals. They face a master of the art whose skills far surpass their own. The best path is to retreat, take cover, and wait until conditions change. But their amygdalae are so irritated that they are uncontrollably driven to act, even as all conditions are against them. And they are going to do so in an even crazier fashion than what is already failing. It only gets better for Trump from here.

(Emphasis mine)

Marriage and Divorce

As has been noted on this blog before, The Rifleman adheres to a red pill philosophy. Particularly of note, the concept of marriage and divorce is an important one. Here are some harsh realities about marriage and divorce.

The myth of love
A woman is incapable of love as it is depicted on TV and in the movies. A woman either admires a man or despises a man. There is no in between. There is no third category. Understand that when a young couple is "in love," the woman is in the infatuation period - a period in which she has an unusually deep admiration for him.

A financial contract
As has been mentioned on this blog on multiple occasions, marriage, as defined by the US legal system, is a financial contract. There is a start-up fee (marriage certificate). And although there appear to be finacial benefits within the tax code for a married couple, the finacial risks are potentially far greater. It is not a winning risk versus reward situation.

Framework of the family unit
It used to be that marriage was the framework of the family unit for society. For a society to grow and flourish, it needs a strong family unit. In modern days, the family court and child support system have replaced the family unit. In essence, the government has taken the role of the father.

Homes without a father in them are very detrimental to society:

63% of youth suicides are from fatherless homes (US Dept. Of Health/Census) – 5 times the average.

90% of all homeless and runaway children are from fatherless homes – 32 times the average.

85% of all children who show behavior disorders come from fatherless homes – 20 times the average.  (Center for Disease Control)

80% of rapists with anger problems come from fatherless homes –14 times the average.  (Justice & Behavior, Vol 14, p. 403-26)

71% of all high school dropouts come from fatherless homes – 9 times the average.  (National Principals Association Report)

Father Factor in Education – Fatherless children are twice as likely to drop out of school.

Children with Fathers who are involved are 40% less likely to repeat a grade in school.

Children with Fathers who are involved are 70% less likely to drop out of school.

Children with Fathers who are involved are more likely to get A’s in school.

Children with Fathers who are involved are more likely to enjoy school and engage in extracurricular activities.

75% of all adolescent patients in chemical abuse centers come from fatherless homes – 10 times the average.

The Rifleman does not want these things for his children. This is why I am red pill.

If masculinity were truly toxic, then kids growing up without dads would presumably be better off than those who have them. But, they're not: they tend to be more depressed, aggressive & criminal. Truth is: we need more masculinity in society, not less.

More on the Myth of the Alpha Female

A reader writes in:
"Rifleman, we all know your thoughts on the Alpha Female. You've also gone on record saying you agree with sources that say all a woman is looking for in a man is access to resources. So how do you explain the situation where the alpha female is the primary or sole breadwinner and her husband is not - why did she marry?"

Excellent question... let's dig in.

Marriage in the US legal system is a financial contract. It overwhelmingly favors the female.  Why would a female in a far superior financial position want to enter such a contract?

1. Biology
"He chose ME!!!" is the overwhelming mindset of marriage in females.  Having a moment in the spotlight demonstrating this is hardwired into the female psyche.

2. Zero Risk
In relationships where the woman is the primary breadwinner, she is usually out-earning the male by a paltry sum.  The relationships where she makes big bucks and he makes little or nothing are very, very rare. Typically, if she is making, say, $50K, he will be making $35K. She is still using him for resources - with zero risk. When divorce happens (and it almost always does in these situations), she won't have to pay a dime.  He usually has to pay a bit. 

3. Some Resources
Given the same example - she makes $50K and he makes $35K - she still gets access to an $85K lifestyle that she cannot get on her own.  In these relationships,  she has the nicer car. She chose the house (and they are mortgaged up to their eyeballs). She has the nice things.  He gets table scraps from time to time. 

4. No other options.
The $50K woman is not likely to nab an $85K+ man.  She is too career oriented and lacks femininity. She has been forced to settle.  An Alpha Male does not marry a competitor, he marries a helpmeet.

NAWALT - "Not All Women Are Like That" - is purely BS. 
All Women Are Like That (AWALT).
