this is a letter i had initially addressed to bill o'reilly, in response to something he said, but i know that it can relate to rush limbaugh, sean hannity, glenn beck, feminists, gays, as well as masculine apologists and anyone else with gender-identity issues.
commenting on a church's cancellation of some type of christmas play featuring charlie brown, bill o'reilly said these words: "secular progressivism wants to destroy the christian holiday". while i don't take issue with this statement at all, i must point out the ways in which bill o'reilly is "buying into" the progressive democrats' destruction of the ideals that have contributed to the strength and the success of america.
maybe bill o'reilly is fighting the intolerant and anti-christian viewpoints of the left, but he is walking in lock-step with another weakness-promoting aspect of the left - and that is the subjugation of gender.
by referring to members of the taller/wider/stronger gender as "guys," and by never failing to refer to members of the egg-bleeding/milk-spouting/lesser gender as "women," bill o'reilly is buying into the political correctness of the left which kowtows to a notion as ridiculous as "gender equality" (as well as the words "a woman can do anything a man can do").
now, as long as they're not competing against men, it may seem like women are just as capable as men...but the very existence of gender-based sports teams surely places an asterisk after the "anything a man can do" line.
by referring to members of the apt gender as "guys"while referring to members of the menstruating gender as "women," bill o'reilly (as well as society in general) is subjugating men through the undue respect of females. referring to men as "guys" rather than "men" is as disrespectful as referring to females as "broads". in today's society, we have any egg-bleeding and milk-spouting specimen of motherhood being referred to as a "woman," but it seems that the only way anyone is going to refer to a man by using the word "man," is if the man has accomplished something that is worthy of respect. "he's not a MAN," says the angry ex-wife with much contempt for who she disrespects. "you're not a MAN," says the straight man, contemptuously to the masculivoid who looks at men with a crooked type of misunderstanding that beckons him to take a closer look at men.
gay "men" and "strong" women - these masculine slights are the only ones who are given the letters M-E-N. this is compromise of masculine integrity, plain and simple, and it is contributing as much to the deconstruction of america as is the tolerance of muslims.
aside from being ironic, it's kind of oxymoronic (if that is a word) for there to be a buzz-phrase like "strong women" or even "gay men". i say this because the "strong woman" lacks the physical makeup to be anything but "strong FOR A woman," just as the muscular "gay man" lacks the gender-identity/emotional makeup to be anything but the classic "kid in a candy store" when he's around half-naked men. "manly for a gay," "strong for a woman," this is how the integrity of men and masculinity is slighted. "manly for someone who hasn't internalized masculine gender-identity," "strong for someone who lacks the physical attributes of a masculine body," this is how the integrity of men and masculinity is slighted, because if a woman can be considered "strong" and if a gay guy can be considered "manly" then the very essence of manhood is compromised
there is a reason for the "parking for pregnant women" signs, there is a reason for the gender-based sports teams, there is a reason that the coney island hot dog eating competition had to add a "womens' division". the reason is that females are somewhat disabled when compared to men, just as gay "men" are somewhat disabled and rendered dazed or confused when faced with real men. yet, the buzz-phrases "strong women" and "gay men" are commonplace, while the average man is not a man but only a dismissible "guy".
so, the next time anyone suggests that people stand up to democrats and their hatred of religious holidays, they should be reminded that standing up to democrats' deconstruction of america means standing up to feminists' dismissal of men.
let me be clear and say that i'm not in any way suggesting that every man should rape any feminist with a carving knife so that her vagina bleeds more profusely than it does during her normal monthly egg-leak. i realize that womens' penis-receptacles are necessary tools for men to use just to further the very existence of the human race. i also am not suggesting that we stop basing physical competitions on gender, for i realize that gender-based sports teams are necessary to keep sports competitive. we must keep sports competitive, because with females fighting for equal representation where they don't belong...well, let me just ask this question: who'd want to see a five-second boxing match between a strong woman and a broad-shouldered, thickly-built specimen of muscle who exercises with weights that are three times as heavy as the ones at curves fitness centers?
as prince sung in a song from the 1989 film called "batman," i will answer my own question: "NO...BO..DY".
dylan terreri, i
I used to work for EDMC for years and I would like to just say once again, ' I PREDICTED THIS' 5 years ago when Nelson took over. I did what I could to try and communicate to the executives how to do it the right way but was just pushed aside. So, I left and so did my Top App status ( achieved the right way I should say by only helping students who truly wanted to attend, not just to make numbers).
While i feel bad for my friends who are caught up in this mess, All I can say is 'GO GET THEM!' They could have avoided this before it got to this point but they simply did not want to listen or 'do the right thing'.
Bye bye EDMC and The Art Institutes. I will continue to remember Bob Knutson and much better, and honest, days.
Steve Seventy was My Uncle, and he was GREAT!!
The city paper decided the story they wanted to tell before I was even interviewed. I will tell the real one here:
Should it surprise me? no. Does it disappoint me? yes.
Its all good. Probably best if I tell it my way anyways. I will be just as critical of myself as I will be of others, but at least the truth will be on the page.
This is the same paper that told us years ago that they weren't gonna keep doing write ups on all of the fine talent that was coming thru the lounge because we weren't advertising with them.
Yes....its true. the real world does suck some time.
And HOW ARE YOU GONNA HAVE A LOUNGE STORY WITH NO GENE STOVALL and NO STAFF?!?!?!?!

I am just going to start learning. I am not that good at playing and need guitar help. Any info on guitar lessons you can give me will be much appreciated. I had gone through this site:
I was talking about Run DMC. And Jake Wheatley is probably just like that back out of this thing. You have provided a gift that keeps on giving, City Paper.
Mr. Potter you have nailed UPMC on perpetrating what is known as "passive-aggressive" behavior. I also believe that a lot of "charities" sheilding themselves under 501 (3) (c) umbrellas probably need some sort of watchdog facility to monitor their comings and goings. Good work and great reporting.
On the Road unreadable? Kloman probably wanted more parentheses. At least Ginsburg turned out OK.
He was my father's first cousin & I knew him quite well. A fine gentleman.
This is great! Very inspiring stuff. I am glad to see that someone is addressing the housing crisis in a positive and practical manner.
Kloman, You should probably be a little more considerate and respectful of the movie's source material. The book is neither "unreadable," nor will we "waste time" reading this work that is generally considered a gateway to a new style of literature as well as a new reality for many. Who are you to disagree, you ask. Who are you to proffer an opinion at all. And nice us of Wikipedia. Simply ridiculous, City Paper.
Fooled me. Was looking to read about squatters vs jerks, as in weightlifting's clean and jerk and /or dead lift.

Please, somebody, will railway enhancement & route expansion (rebuild of dormant rail line) ever come up? Rail offers most direct means of linking renewables to transport. Ask the Chinese and the Swedes. See "Suntrain Transportation Corporation web page for ideas.

This is the best list ever.
PCC's were trashed in Pittsburgh PA after a accident where a PCC lost breaks coming from South Hills Jct. into Pittsburgh. The car after loosing breaks in transit tunnel jumped tracks and hit the P&LE Rail Roads Fright House in the 90's. Port Authority scrapped most cars and few are used as displays in County and not in use.
