Hot Romance: A Woman Burns Down a Man’s Home for Only Bringing $5 to Their Date

(Link): Hot Romance: A Woman Burns Down a Man’s Home for Only Bringing $5 to Their Date  by Alex Parker

Such seems the case, at least, where a woman in Las Vegas is concerned.

But first, the Word of the Day: Allegedly.

Apply it to everything below.

On October 11th, Kimberly Marika Johnson went on a date.

As she and her suitor broke bread, a significant chunk of food for thought was served: He admitted he’d only brought five bucks.

Call it a choke point.

Sitting there at Jerry’s Nugget, the lady doubtlessly deduced she hadn’t struck gold.

Per one investigator’s affidavit, “An argument ensued.”

Subsequently, “Ms. Johnson made (the friend) walk home.”

But the duo was destined for more.

As it turned out, despite a cold-fish sort of start, their romance was about to get hot.

Man Who Stormed Capitol Regrets Nothing After His Dating Profile Blows Up

Here is one of the weirder stories to come out of the Capitol riots of Jan. 6, 2021.

Excerpts:

by B. Lyman

A 26-year-old who stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6 regrets nothing because he didn’t commit any violent acts and said his dating profile has since been “blowing up,” according to (Link): Bloomberg.

 Brandon Fellows of upstate New York said he attended the Jan. 6 rally-turned-riot after he saw President Donald Trump’s tweet that said there would be a “big protest” and that it would “be wild,” according to Bloomberg.

…Fellows said his dating profile on Bumble is “blowing up” after he posted pictures of himself at the Capitol riot, according to the report.

Divorce Rates Will Rocket This Year as Further Lockdowns and Financial Pressures Push Already Strained Relationships To The Brink, Lawyers Have Said

Divorce Rates Will Rocket This Year as Further Lockdowns and Financial Pressures Push Already Strained Relationships To The Brink, Lawyers Have Said

The following is from a British paper, so I don’t know how applicable these findings are to the United States.

If it’s applicable here at all, you can bet that marriage-obsessed wackos Al Mohler and Brad Wilcox will write up bogus studies or commentary arguing that this is all a bunch of pish-posh and that the future of marriage rates is as rosy as ever.

Either that, or they will write fear mongering pieces declaring that anyone who doesn’t marry by the age of 35 will have a horrible existence and die a horrible, lonely death.

January 9, 2021

Divorce rates will rocket this year as further lockdowns and financial pressures push already strained relationships to the brink, lawyers have said.

It follows an unexpected drop in the number of spouses looking to split in 2020. Around 52,000 people filed for divorce between the end of March and September last year, according to the Ministry of Justice. It is a 12pc drop compared with the same period in 2019, when almost 60,000 filed divorce proceedings.

I Unfollowed Blogger Shelia Gregoire on Twitter Today – Re: Politics

I Unfollowed Blogger Shelia Gregoire Today

If I’m not mistaken, Gregoire is Candian.

I have followed her on Twitter for over a year. She does a lot of posts combatting complementarian-type takes on marriage, which I appreciate (though I must say I take some exception against a post or two or video or two she’s made criticizing the concept of remaining a virgin until marriage – I tweeted at her before awhile back explaining my objections to her about that, and I was polite about it).

I wish Gregoire well, but I had to unfollow her tonight on Twitter. I’m not sure if she follows me on there, but she is welcome to un-follow in return, if she wants to, I’d understand.

In the last couple of weeks, Tweets that Gregoire “likes” on there periodically show up on my Twitter feed (meaning I have to see them), and they’re usually these Tweets by conservative critics or Trump detractors who have really warped views about Trump voters or American conservatives generally.

In the past week, I did contact Gregoire on Twitter to try to clear up some misconception she herself Tweeted about American politics.

She doesn’t seem to possess any understanding of why Americans who voted for Trump voted for him or found him appealing. I myself did not vote for Trump in either election, but I understand why some were drawn to him and his message. (I’m an American who was born and raised in the United States, and I used to be a Republican for many years.)

I feel the piling on against Trump and his supporters is unfounded. 

I’ve also noticed this tendency by Gregoire and people like her to never acknowledge that persons and groups on the left (American Democrats and progressives in the U.S. and the world over) are actually guilty of some (or many) of the things they criticize Trump or conservatives of. 

I see no self-awareness in most Trump critics or critics of American conservatives.

The Growing Tide of Censorship & Suppression of Free Speech vis a vis Cancel Culture by Progressives, Democrats, Leftists, Big Tech

The Growing Tide of Censorship & Suppression of Free Speech vis a vis Cancel Culture by Progressives, Democrats, Leftists, Big Tech

I am now starting a list of all the conservatives, populists, classical liberals, and anyone else, who is being banned, silenced, or censored on big media (eg, Twitter, Facebook, You Tube, etc) by Democrats, Social Justice Warriors, Black Lives Matters agitators, (progressive) Liberals.

The number one target by the left as of late and the last few years has been Trump and any and all things Trump-related, including anyone who has supported him.

Also targeted by the left:
Anyone who is critical of CRT (Critical Race Theory), transgender rights (i.e., allowing biological men who identify as women into the biological-women’s only spaces), anyone who has questioned governmental lock-downs (this extends to the UK, where UK radio stations have been deleted from You Tube over this), etc.

I have been very alarmed over the last few months over this tendency of Big Tech, mainstream media, leftists, to be willing to censor and “cancel” anyone who doesn’t agree with their political and social views.

I did not vote for Trump (or any politician) in 2016 or in 2020, and I do not care if you dislike Trump – it should alarm you and make your skin crawl to see how willing media and social media platforms and leftists are to censor Trump, to censor anyone who voted for the man, or to silence anyone who does not support any or all leftist concerns.

This will be a list I will periodically update in the future, so it will be edited – to include both new news stories, and quite possibly news items from years past, where (progressive) liberals censored others, or harassed them off line.

I Haven’t Had A Boyfriend For A Decade. Here’s What I Learned. by R. Thompson

I Haven’t Had A Boyfriend For A Decade. Here’s What I Learned. by R. Thompson

Before I paste in excerpts from the article (see farther below), I wanted to say, yes, it’s unfortunately common for family and friends to shame you about being single; it’s common for them to poke fun or ask questions about “why aren’t you married yet?” or “why don’t you have a boyfriend?,” and so forth.

Now, I’m not sure of the author’s (Thompson’s) age of this piece I am excerpting below, but if you are a single adult reading this, and you find yourself nodding along in empathy and solidarity, because you too know what it feels like to be pressured or shamed by friends and family for being single, I wanted to point out that this shaming, guilt tripping, mockery and so on, doesn’t last forever.

I am now in my late forties; most people will stop questioning you and mocking you about “why aren’t you married or dating anyone yet” at some stage of your life, probably in your mid-40s.

You will have to endure a lot of the annoying, at times hurtful, mocking, innuendo, shaming, teasing, pressure, and so on and so forth, in your younger years.

The mid 30s seem to be the height of this singles shaming and ridicule for most people (based on anecdotes I’ve seen from other single adults over the years).

Some Trump Supporters Now Acting As Nutty as Trump- and Conservative- Haters (After four years of Liberals & Democrats Rioting, or Defending Rioting)

Some Trump Supporters Now Acting As Nutty as Trump- and Conservative- Haters (After four years of Liberals & Democrats Rioting, or Defending Rioting)

January 6, 2021: After having watched Republican Trump haters, leftists, and Democrats act like violent, unhinged lunatics ever since Trump took office, I don’t want to see any Trump haters, Democrats, and Leftists pointing to today’s nutty actions by Trump supporters to act morally superior: because they are not morally superior. Nobody, no group, comes out looking good at this point.

I have never been a liberal or a Democrat, and will never be a liberal or a Dem. I left the Republican Party a year or two before Trump ever even threw his hat into the GOP’s ring.

I remain conservative, but am currently a bit more moderate than I was a few years ago.

I’ve never been particularly for or against Trump.
I have been baffled by unrelenting hatred of the man by the left and by the “Never Trump” right – but I am also baffled by the extreme devotion to Trump as demonstrated today: apparently, some Trump supporters have (Link): started rioting during the electoral vote count (including video clips of Trump supporters sparring with police).

I do understand why some might find Trump appealing, in that he seems to listen to everyday people, and everyday people feel as though they and their needs have been ignored by both the establishment Republicans and establishment Democrats.

That much I fathom – but some of the MAGA (“Make America Great Again,” aka Trump supporters) crowd fighting with DC police today and apparently trying to storm the capitol building is inexcusable.

What The Pandemic Has Done for Dating

(Link): What The Pandemic Has Done for Dating

Excerpts:

Most dating apps report increased usage since March, and noticeable changes in daters’ attitudes.

Singles in America surveyed 5,000 Americans and found that 58 percent of people who use dating apps say they have shifted toward more intentional dating since the pandemic.

Of those surveyed, 69 percent are being more honest with potential partners and 63 percent are spending more time getting to know them. The dating site OkCupid, where I am a scientific adviser, also noticed a 20 percent decline in users seeking a hookup.

by H. Frishberg – December 31, 202

According to a 2018 survey of 3,245 Swiss people by the University of Geneva, study author Dr. Gina Potarca said there is “no differences between couples initiated through dating apps and those initiated elsewhere regarding relationship and life satisfaction.”

Swiping for love may still have some social stigma, but it results in the same strong partnerships as those formed between people who met in person.

A (Link): new study published Wednesday in the journal PLOS One has suggested early criticism of dating apps was fear-mongering.

While Tinder, Bumble and other matchmaking tech are often associated with one-night stands, casual sex or short-term relationships, those who meet on such sites often have stronger long-term relationship goals than those who meet in other ways.

This story actually broke earlier in the week, so if you haven’t thrown out your 2020 bingo cards yet and you had “super gonorrhea,” break out your daubing pen because this is your lucky day.

The World Health Organization is warning the public that certain measures taken to combat the COVID pandemic may already be resulting in mutations of some sexually transmitted diseases that are highly resistant to antibiotics.

This is of particular concern in the case of gonorrhea because there have been significant surges in new cases around the world in the past couple of years, particularly in parts of Africa. But the United States has been seeing similar increases in new infections.

Husband Dies of Covid-19 Only 48 Hours After Wife Gives Birth to Premature Baby

Contrary to a lot of secular and Christian conservative marriage and nuclear family propaganda, getting married and/or having children are not guarantees that you won’t die alone or won’t face other hardships in life.

Maybe the following news headline could be used as one argument about why it’s better to remain single and childless.

Michael Keene, an Army vet, got COVID-19 in early October. He died three weeks later, 48 hours after Nicole Keene, gave birth prematurely.

 By Meghan Holohan
Dec 18, 2020

After struggling with COVID-19 for three weeks this fall, Jeffery Michael Keene, 39, was admitted to the hospital. Doctors tried stabilizing him without intubating him, but they had to place him on a ventilator on Oct. 16. Wife, Nicole Keene, worried. She was a respiratory therapist and knew that being on a ventilator was “not to be taken lightly.”

But then Keene went into labor at 34 weeks and her son, Michael Wesson, was born unresponsive. Doctors sent Wesson to the same hospital as his father. Two days later, Michael died without ever knowing Wesson was born.

“The rights of transgender persons and sex reassignment surgery remain politically controversial, even outside the prison context,” wrote U.S. District Judge James Peterson.

Awful Early-Marriage Promoting Editorial, ‘The Future of Christian Marriage,’ from The Christian Post that Actually Cites Deviant Mark Regnerus (December 2020)

Awful Early-Marriage Promoting Editorial, ‘The Future of Christian Marriage,’ from The Christian Post that Actually Cites Deviant Mark Regnerus (December 2020)

Below: another article (this time from The Christian Post) seemingly advocating for the good ol’ days when, supposedly, most women got married by the age of 21 and popped out 10 kids apiece and lamenting at how folks just aren’t quite into marriage now as much as they used to be.

Such articles inadvertently suggest that being single and/or childless are somehow “wrong,” immoral, dangerous for society, or “second best.” They are sometimes (Link): intentionally or inadvertently singles-shaming.

Seems that about once a year, every year, some secular conservative or Christian group or person releases some kind of editorial bemoaning delayed marriage.

You can count on these things appearing regularly. Just like death and taxes, or the sun rising in the east tomorrow.
