Well, Sam, - Since you have promised to not re-appear here, I will suspect that you will read how “we” close this out in your absence. No doubt the number of posts will pass 100 as I forecast, but I remain no less amazed by the fact that it has occurred. As usual, your words pretty much hit the nail on the head in your accurate description and clarifications of the issues at hand.
– Like yourself, I think it’s high time to move on to a new subject, but I feel compelled to react to Smilings latest post, as it completely reflects all the negativity you so well describe that exists in this thread. I am always amazed at the individual who feels the need to re-assert and PROVE, everything that you had discussed about them to be true.
Since it is not my desire to instigate any further bru-ha, - and for the fact that her post was not directed at me, I am going to experiment with directing my reaction towards you, - especially, for the sake of a quicker close to this already amazingly too long post page, - remembering that you Promised not to return. - So a soliloquy, if you will.
It is more than obvious that this individual is ego-reacting to you more than anything else. Unwittingly re-enforcing what you have said, she has in this reaction, again taken the opportunity to make disparaging commentary about men, - most especially “American” men, - and to what end ?? She makes it completely clear by her statement that she knows absolutely nothing about that which she speaks of, save for quick agreement with you that there are “nice girls” in the FSU. ( Whoop-tee-doo, everyone else has already agreed on this point for this thread, and that such commentary as hers is in no way reflective of the main.)
How can a person discuss wealth, when they know nothing about it ?? The same might be said of “equality.” – If you want truly “equal” treatment, you cannot continually fall back on the “Gender Tango” every single time you are not pleased with what’s going on. - Then, for her to dredge up the antiquated stereotype that men “HATE” ( her exact words) women that are not more STUPID than themselves shows she is completely out of touch with what things are like on this side of the Atlantic.( In other words, you can add this to the list of wealth and equality. ) She is overtly unaware of even the side of life here that is well discussed in the international press, - so hardly a secret to the rest of the world. American men for a long time have not needed SLAVES, - we have illegal Mexicans. You’d think nearly everyone would at least know that much. – It is for this simple reason that the U.S. Gov’t. WANTS the Mexicans here and this should be measured against the fact, in this comparative instance, that at the same time, it absolutely Does Not Want women from the FSU at all,- and no stronger message could be sent by them reflecting this.
She is so very wrong in her assessment of these issues that it belies her prejudice and bigotry not to speak of her own pseudo-intellect. I would wager that the greatest amount of the male members here are not only not “put off” but rather both intrigued and attracted by the fact that the women in the FSU, in relative terms, are intelligent and very well educated. For myself I know that if I am going to attempt to ‘bat out of my league,’ I am going to swing above it and not below it. Further, like most men here, I am much more concerned about “who” the person is and not “what” they can do for me. – Why should I not expect and even require the same consideration in return ?? - As to “beautiful sub-serveant women” – you can just guess that this individual is unattractive, – I personally am aware of no reality in which those terms can be accurately combined, outside of dreamland. For looks alone, - I’d have to say that “The Beach Boys” weren’t wrong and my Scandinavian female relatives are not known for taking a back seat to anyone. I am 100% aware of who the “weaker sex” is not. I can further see uselessness in attempting to explain for this person, that I by no means, am wealthy at all, but if she would contemplate purchasing a home within miles in any direction from the house I own, she should count on spending a minimum of a million dollars, and from 3 to 6 million or more, if she wants to be near the ocean. – As it happens, my next door neighbor is in all honesty one of the wealthiest people I know, and like many of the folks around my neighborhood, - you would not know it to look at him, by what he wears or what he drives. In any event, I can promise you that he will be sending no money to Russia to impress anyone, or even so much as offer to buy someone there a new pair of shoes.-
Let’s face it, this particular “poster” was overcome by her personal egotistical need to blow off a little steam at you and in keeping with your description, could not help but throw in a typical bit of man bashing and “America” cursing on top. I am surprised however that she might consider that no one would take the time out to point out to her that she doesn’t know what the hell she’s talking about.
Sincerely, Your friendly neighborhood Viking.
