ME: Like Hercules we'll do the 6th Labor by cleaning up the Augean Stables the feminists created but no way live in filth. To "pick up the slack" as you put it makes us enablers and co-conspirators to the destruction of our civilization. You don't seriously think America as we know it can survive the pricing of an affordable family life out of the reach of most young adults? Below is pertinent.

Subject: Your letter in today's NY Times comparing European and American workers.
To: willem.maas@nyu.edu

The economic and social advantages you assert European workers enjoy over ours is illusionary. Those generous benefits were paid for by spending the economic, social and political capital their children needed to gain meaningful employment and enjoy stable family lives. Europe essentially took out a reverse mortgage and spent down the loan amount leaving nothing for its children to inherit. America's doing the same thing.

My youngest boy (20) came over last night for a steak feed and action movie. Last night's flic was a paranoid mid-80s "Rambo" one-man-army anti-Soviet fantasy entitled "Invasion USA". In it the Rooskies land guerillas in Florida who are then dispached around the country to start terrorist operations.

Pointed to him only a few years after the film came out the Soviet system suddenly imploded and vanished because it simply couldn't meet the basic needs of its people. Think the same thing could happen to Europe and America. Most young adults in both face daunting, if not impossible, odds of creating stable family lives.

As the father of four young adult children, I've decided to take ACTION. Margaret Mead was right: "...a small group of thoughtful people could change the world, it's the only thing that ever has." Below is pertinent.

For all the good things the EU has brought Europe, e.g. political stability, guarantees for personal freedom, continental peace, etc, it has utterly failed to protect family stability and create real economic opportunity for most young people. America's heading in the same direction. That's why I spoke at the Kellogg annual meeting (video link below) and contracted with the Washington Times national weekly edition to run full page color advertisement at least monthly through November, 2008. A draft of my next advert (6/21) is on my www.drmarkklein.blogspot.com.

The video of my remarks at the 4/29 Kellogg meeting in support of my proposal to sell the company addresses the underlying economic policy issues I'm very concerned about. http://investor.kelloggs.com/MediaRegister.cfm?MediaID=15614 After logging on fast forward to about 25:30. Submitted similar proposals to Heinz & General Mills.

You should consider respecting others, even women, and not cross posting their names and words out of context. Such behavior is dishonest as well as discourteous, not showing even the basic respect that others have shown to you. Much like pissing on the carpet of the home in which you are a guest. But perhaps you consider this proper behavior...

I saw the post over at ifeminists, and I wanted to inform you that it is within US law that you can quote anyone you choose to. If any liablity threats have been thrown at you, I would suggest you contact you lawyer.
