Dear children, 

Why would ever want to get married if the probability of success of that marriage was no better than a coin flip, i.e., 50/50. 

Debate.  

 
Sure, a good topic actually.  obtw, I did give you some straight answers to the questions you asked me in the Trump thread you may have missed.

Anyway, happened to hear El Rushbo talk about this very subject whilst having my lunch Friday in my Honda Café.  So this is in the appropriate thread, too.

Millennial Women Can’t Find “Economically Attractive” Men
Sep 6, 2019

Transcript.

RUSH: How about this headline: “Why Are Marriage Rates Down?” Did you know that, Brian? Fewer people getting married? Why do you think it is? Mr. Snerdley, if you were to be told – and I’m telling you now — that marriage rates in America are down, why do you think that would be? There’s no wrong answer here. I’m just curious. What’s the first thing that pops – (interruption) What? Yeah, but why aren’t the Millennials getting married?

... the reason people are not getting married, according to this study in the Journal of Marriage and Family, is a lack of economically-attractive men.

“Marriage rates have steadily declined over the past few decades, and now researchers from Cornell University are offering up a possible explanation: there just aren’t as many economically-attractive men for unmarried women to meet as there used to be.”

Now, let me share something with you. Way back in the 1960s when I was a kid, and many of you who have been lifers will remember the story or elements of it, that I did not want to go to college. I knew what I wanted to do. It was radio. Anything I did I wanted to further that. I looked at college as a four-year halt, as a four-year obstacle in the road. I didn’t want any part of it.

My father was devastated. He came from the Great Depression. The only way out was with a college degree. If you didn’t have one, in his lifetime, if you didn’t have a college degree, you had no prayer of ever amounting to anything. So he spent countless hours and years trying to impress upon us — my mother, too — the importance of going to college. And I remember one night he sat me down and he told me all the things that would happen to me, all the bad things that would happen if I didn’t go to college.

Now, I don’t remember all of them. But a couple of them were, you will not be able to maintain the economic standard of living you have become accustomed to. You’re not going to be able to get a job that pays you enough. You’re not going to maintain your current social circle of friends. They’re going to go way above and beyond you and they’re not going to have any interest or anything in common with you once you become adults because you didn’t go to college and they did.

And then he said — you’ve got to remember this is all generational stuff — then he said to me, “Son, you’re never going to find a woman to marry you. No woman wants to marry a man that can’t support her.” Remember, this is the ’60s — and he grew up, he was born in 1918, and in that era women didn’t work. They were housewives and any number of things. They didn’t work en masse. But that was the generational belief system.

Of course, I’m listening to all of this as a teenage know-it-all thinking none of it is going to apply to me. I remember saying, “If that’s all I’m going to be to some woman, I don’t want to get married under those circumstances. What do you mean?”

“Well, son, I’m just telling you the way of the world. There isn’t a woman worth her salt who is going to marry somebody who can’t support her.” He said, “Son, women marry up.”

I said, “What’s wrong with me marrying up? What happens if I find a woman that’s wealthy?”

“That’s not going to happen, son, not to you.” (laughing) Anyway, look how timeless. Look how timeless. Now we have researchers from Cornell University saying that marriage rates are down because women can’t find men who can support them. I’m not saying it. Cornell University reports it’s “the lack of economically attractive men.” What does that mean? It means women want to marry somebody that has more than they do, that earns more than they do or at least has the potential. That’s what this says.
...
If you've read this far you might be interested in the full transcript of this segment.  If not, the above is the gist.

The "not-washing-my-hands" Fox host seems to think it's a good idea to have kids debate against gay marriage in the name of tolerance. The religious tool that's interviewed just wants to proselytize...

Maybe this "Bring your favourite Scripture to School!" should be followed by Satanists and Muslims as well. Ideally on the same day. You know, make it more inclusive and diverse...

PS: Ok, Harry Potter fans too.

What I’ve Learned From Collecting Stories of People Whose Loved Ones Were Transformed by Fox News
No matter where the stories came from they all featured a few familiar beats: A loved one seemed to have changed over time. Maybe that person was already somewhat conservative to start. Maybe they were apolitical. But at one point or another, they sat down in front of Fox News, found some kind of deep, addictive comfort in the anger and paranoia, and became a different person — someone difficult, if not impossible, to spend time with. The fallout led to failed marriages and estranged parental relationships. For at least one person, it marks the final memory he’ll ever have of his father: “When I found my dad dead in his armchair, fucking Fox News was on the TV,” this reader told me. “It’s likely the last thing he saw. I hate what that channel and conservative talk radio did to my funny, compassionate dad. He spent the last years of his life increasingly angry, bigoted, and paranoid.”
