Book Review - Average Married Dad's Guide

Alex Peck of Average Married Dad fame has come out with his book "Average Married Dad's Guide to Health, Wealth, and a Sexy Marriage - for 30-40 Somethings."

I met Alex a while ago when he was working in my neck of the woods.  He was sport enough to meet with me and my friends at Mancini's for drinks and food.  Sure enough, like most people you've known over the internet and Manosphere for a while, he proved not to be a poser or a fraud, but the genuine article.  He's married, he's ripped, he's good looking, he's an engineer, and thus, there is no doubt in my mind he has the authority to author a guide book.

But before you think he's perfect or lucky, let's be clear about this book.  A lot of the advice comes from trial and error, a lot of error.  He wasn't born with good looks and physical strength.  He had to diet and exercise.  He didn't have the perfect marriage.  He had the marriage every man has with the equally poor tools and training to manage it.  And he wasn't the greatest father.  He learned on the job.  In the end what the man has is wisdom.  And he earned it the hard way - by stumbling through life like the rest of us.

Thankfully, as is per the theoretical "mission statement" of the Manosphere, his goal is to make your lives easier than his by getting the wisdom it took him until he was 40 to learn into your hands and brains in your 20's and 30's.  Even then, a man in his 40's with a wife and children could benefit from this book as it would only serve to make a marriage stronger and family better.  And thus arguably  one of the largest benefits of his book - it addresses an underserved group within the Manosphere - married/older men.

A huge (the largest complaint actually) of my books is that they are only beneficial for younger, single men who don't have children.  While I disagree with that, that is the reality.  However, where my or other men's books (Roosh, Rollo, etc.) fail, Alex's succeeds.  This book covers everything, especially topics such as marriage, children, being a father, and being a husband.  It covers child rearing, reigniting your passion in marriage, and does so in a clear and effective manner.

About the only complaint I have about the book isn't really a complaint as much as it is a trait of the book.  It's not opinionated or terribly political.  It's very much a literal guide/instruction manual.  Alex does not cause any controversy or challenge philosophical thought.  This tone of writing might come off as a bit sterile or cool, even dry, but he is not here to pioneer new lines of thought or fillet the latest absurdity of feminism.  He is here to help 30-40 something men with their lives through discipline, observations, experience, wisdom and failure.

I would strongly recommend this book to the underserved masses of men in the Manosphere who either are married, wish to get married, or don't immediately feel like tirading against the evils of women and marriage when the topic is brought up.  As I've said before your wife/partner and children are the most important people in your lives and are the single greatest source of happiness for you.  But if you botch it up, they will be the equally greatest source of pain, misery, and strife.

Ensure it is the first and not the latter.  Buy Alex's book before you marry.

The Ludwig Von Mises Airforce

Many people don't know this, but the Mises Institute in at Auburn University has its very own airforce. I am actually a pilot.  As proof here is a picture of me and my co-pilot as we bomb UC Berkeley. 





That or it may just have been a friend of mine in France letting me fly his plane.  I can't remember.

Lake Maggiore and Gotthard Pass

Some more pics of Europe for those interested.  As always embracing the suck.  Drove from Zurich over the Alps into Italy over the "Gotthard Pass."  Was allowed to hold, but not shoot, a European gun.  And then the picture of Lake Maggiore from my hotel in Stesa.  More pics on the way.









































Now while I'm gone I want all of you good hard-working Americans to work extra hard and pay those taxes so I have nice, smooth roads to drive on when I get back.

"Women of Silicon Valley"

Why...oh...why....aren't women treated...

oh fuck it.

You girls are a fucking joke

Create shit people want.  Not a god damned political crusade.  Then you'll close the fucking wage gap.

And I do know some REAL women who have REAL degrees and COULD DO THE MATH and produce REAL shit.

I'm done dealing with these children trying to pose as adults.

My New Mission in Life

Absolutely this.

More Fear and Suffering In Europe

Greetings All!

Today was adventure in a genuine Citadel in the town of Besancon, France.  It was also an adventure because my host is a pilot and I got to fly a plane around the French country side.  And yes I did get to fly the actual plane!































However, sadly, I must provide one bit of editorial.  The citadel that I visited, which was once a mighty and nearly impenetrable fort in this French town, has since been converted into a zoo.

Yes, a fucking zoo.

So where once proud French soldiers stood defending the town against various assaults, they have now turned their barracks into housing quarters for kangaroos, pigs, rats, roosters, rabbits, and other creatures that are now shitting where they slept 300 years ago.

It frankly pissed me off to see such an achievement of engineering and militarism reduced to being a tourist trap that relies on captured animals to draw the crowds. Ergo, I took no pictures of the animals because I thought it beneath the men that served there.

But on a happy note I did tell a French, street punk, millineal, tatted panhandler to "fuck off" when he came begging to ask me to forfeit some of my life in the form of currency so he wouldn't have to.  He understood me quite clearly, and was actually shocked and irritated that somebody would refute him so boldly.  Still, after a bit of bravado, he stood down, moving on to parasite off of some young naive females who believed he was genuinely disadvantaged.  They poured out their finite life blood in the form of their finite time in the form of their finite currency because...well... they never studied economics too seriously or perhaps were intimidated.  But still, it's good to see leftist women taking care of leftist men.

They deserve each other.

World's Most Useful Degree

More powerful than any liberal arts degree ever.

Will Beheadings Break the Left's Love for Diversity?

Just wondering, because I know how much the left loves diversity.

The truth is, and I'll be short because I'm on vacation, is that the left fears violent enemies and instead of fighting them (which would take effort) they'd rather roll on their back in an attempt to placate them.

Silly leftists.

"Can't Leave the Country Without It Going to Pot" Linkage

Fed has their own Snowden now.  How much you want to bet it's a bunch of Keynesians desperately trying to keep their faith?

Drop her off with ISIS.  She'll lose weight.

Female conservatives finding out they're NOT obliged to have children.  Oh noes Sean Hannity!  Who will fight your unwinable culture war in the future!!???

It is easier to join ISIS become a "glorious, exciting rebel" than it is to hit the books, study calculus and become an engineer.  Besides women find dangerous men more sexy.

Montreaux, Switzerland

Visited Montreaux and what I'm learning about Switzerland is that I would likely get arrested in a place like this.  Not because I wish to break laws, but because there's so many to break. It explains why the ENTIRE country (that I've seen so far) is like a large library.  Quiet, obey by the rules, don't act out.  There is nearly complete SILENCE even though there are people everywhere.  It's quite eerie actually.

Anyway, some pics just to remind you of how much western culture sucks:

IQ vs Insonomia

I present this for my readers not as ass kissing but for genuine concern and intellectual digest

I also present it because its 4AM in Switzerland and I'd arrogantly would like to think myself a genius.

Tee Hee I'm a Cute Conservative Girl!!!

Afuckingmen

Stay Frosty Boys

Stay the freak frosty.

A Plague of Dunces

Aussie executive speaks the blunt truth about the utter craptastic quality of "graduates" colleges are graduating today.

Now all of you thin-skinned college graduates do your knee jerk thing and tell us how he's mean, how you can't put a price on education and all the other preprogrammed stuff you've been brainwashed to say.

Greetings From Switzerland

I have no idea where I am or where these pictures are.  Switzerland, if you haven't been here, is basically an entire country of small interlinked villages that even with a map I am getting lost in.

The Ass Kicking of "It's On Us"

Not that you had a choice to notice it or not, but if you or anybody with even the most elementary of "social media" accounts, you no doubt had the "It's On Us" nazi propaganda "PSA" shoved down your throat.

Did you rape anybody?  No?

Tough shit, we're lecturing you.

Did you make an unwanted advanced on a person of the female persuasion?  No?

Tough shit, we're chartering you with the responsibility anyway.


The good news, and this is GOOD NEWS, is the response "It's On Us" has received.

It's be negative!

Despite all the money, funds, celebrityship, and even THE PRESIDENT OF THE FUCKING UNITED STATES, the American people took this trash and threw it back in the faces of the verminous leftist socialist scum.

Just look at the "like/dislike" ratios of the following videos.

Video 1

Video 2

Video 3

Video 4

You can continue and view all the videos but what you'll invariably see is the American public upchucking the shit that was shoved down their throats.  NOBODY, and I mean NOBODY is swallowing this piece of leftist propaganda whole.  They're revolting against it!

Now, if you wanted to tell the originators of this evil posing as "leftist moral crusaderism" you can't.  "It's On Us" has no "comment" or "contact" section.

But oh my god
by golly
look at big titted Molly

THEY HAVE A "DONATE" button!!!!

Seriously.

You don't have to "kill" or "assassinate" or knee cap some leftist douche to fight the fight against the socialist onslaught on this country.  You just have to vote against all those videos and mock and ridicule them.

I mean, think about it.  These videos have the "cover" of being against rape and sexual assault.

Which EVERYBODY is against.

AND STILL!!!!

It's SOOOOOO fucking obvious they have a political motivation that people are voting them down.

For once, just ONCE, take the minute or two to vote these verminous leftist, Hollywood scum down and put these fuckers in their place.

The Week Leftists Got Their Heads Out of Their Asses

I don't expect this to be a trend, but

Example #1 of a leftist getting his head out of his ass

and

Example #2 of a group of leftists using the free market to get their heads out of their asses as well.

Who knows!  In 6-700 years maybe they might learn something from economic history and finally flesh out the rabbit hole to realize just how wrong they are!!!

Paypal vs. Patreon

Let me tell you of a dream I have.

I have this dream where the amount of work that is to be done is finite.  And I got it in my head that if I just:

knock out one more e-mail
make one more video
cut up another chord of wood
replace one more brake pad

the work will end, I'll cross the "finish line" and will be able to play video games and goof off until I'm done.

While I'm consciously aware that this is a dream and the real world doesn't work that way, unconsciously my work ethic drives me to race towards that finish line that never gets closer.  So i'll burn through 10 hours of "work," only to have the next day be filled with unexpected chores, repairs, and the cornucopia of shit I have to do that never ends.

But if there's a particularly irksome "never ending chore" in my "career" that I have, it's keeping up with the latest social media fad/craze.  Just can't stick with blogger, nope you need a youtube channel.  Can't just have a youtube channel, nope you need twitter.  Can't just have twitter, nope you need instagram.  And you fool, you just can't have instagram, you need tumblr!

Add to this list of perpetual painassery - Patreon.

First exposed to it by Davis Aurini's project, a fan suggested I look into it as I would make more money on my youtube videos if I were to use Patreon.  Somewhat confused how it works, he was kind enough to explain it to me, essentially saying I would be looking for "patrons" to sponsor my work.  This would allow me to work on my "work" and not worry about making ends meet.  However, I was more interested in it because, frankly, when you go down this path you ostracize yourself forever from any kind of "normal" employment, not to mention anger people who are prone to launch political "campaigns," "lawsuits," "firing missions," etc. in an attempt to destroy your personal finances.  Ergo, if people wanted to "thank" you for doing the work they can't while you put your own self at risk defending their beliefs, they could become "patrons" and help you out.

So I looked into it, always happy to take a new source of money.  But upon further review (unless I'm missing something) Patreon just doesn't make any sense.  If for any other reason, paypal and other crowd funding sources already exist and do what Patreon claims to be doing.  Not to mention Patreon just highway-robs you in fees.

Patreon charges you 10%






 While Paypal charges around 3%



And if you want to be technical, Bitcoin effectively charges 0%

Again, I may be missing something, but I don't think so.  And if I'm not, then I'm slightly miffed in that I wasted, yet again, another 20 minutes of my life chasing after that finish line that can never be crossed.

Regardless, the point is if you want to help a blogger you like, a youtuber you're a fan of, or just an artist whose art you enjoy, forget Patreon.  Just donate to them via Paypal and make life a lot easier for every one.

Weekly Sponsor

This week's sponsor is Andro-Plus.

If you are looking for a testosterone supplement, but don't want Obama's permission via your doctor to get it, consider trying Andro-Plus.  It is a fraction of the cost it would take for you to get it via 3 doctors visits and a trip to the pharmacy, and you'll find out whether testosterone supplements even work for you on the cheap.

However, be aware that there are lawsuits being filed (as there always is) that claim there are negative side effects OR no effects at all.  In short you take this stuff at your own risk.

Again, I've used Andro-Plus and saw no effects (good or bad), but others have used it and swear by it, so see if it isn't for you.

I'm Calling Bullshit on All The Fake Mental Disorders

Yes, language warning.  do not play at work or in front of children.

I Am Not Responsible for Sexual Assault

Boys, I don't know about you, but I'm getting awfully peeved at getting lectured for shit I didn't, never have, and never will do.  I'm also sick and tired of the fake "sexual assault" epidemic and the outright lie about 1 in 5 women being sexually assaulted on campus which, intentionally or not, slippery slopes into painting all men as potential rapists, sexual deviants, not to to mention, dramatically increases their chances of a false rape accusation.

Want to fight back?

Well, if you notice the downvotes on this video that is fully endorsed by

Hollywood
The Democrat Party
The MSM
and even
President Obama

is getting a full 1/3rd downvote.

That's impressive.  This was a professionally orchestrated piece that has the FULL BACKING of ALL THE INSTITUTIONS (media, government, academia, etc.) of the United States, and it STILL is getting a full 1/3 down voted.

Let's make it at least 1/2.  Visit the video, watch it, and if you get the feeling you're being accused of being a rapist or are somehow part of the problem, down vote it.  It would be a rare triumph of the voice of the people over those who wish to be our moral superior and dare to have the gall to lecture us about a problem that is completely political and not our fault, and therefore, not our problem.

I'm Majoring in Whore

Some dark humor for you this weekend.
