    I base my personal finances on Keynesian theory

    Really? You kite checks and force other people to accept them when you run short of money? Do they believe your promise that you will someday save up the money to make the checks good? instead of kiting more checks to pay past bad checks?

    Rin is planning to be a neo-feudal rentier living off the dividends of tobacco and utility stocks, while pursuing his own intellectual interests as a Renaissance Man. i.e. he will be retired. He is not planning on climbing corporate ladders.

    In his case, financially and logistically support the women taking care of the kids' daily needs, the interaction with kids may well inspire him to new worthy technology pursuits and artistic output; instead of "opportunity cost," he may well be receiving new opportunity from those real interactions with kids and younger women.

    The game is rigged against the average male wage slaves. However, Rin, you are supposed to be one who can afford to be a Renaissance Man; i.e. who has staff taking care of his needs, and have the resources to do the big thinking and live life experiences that the mere wage slaves would admire and fantasize about. Some of Goethe's best pieces were inspired by his personal relationship experiences, real courtship and pursuit of hard-to-obtain women much younger than himself. If Goethe wrote a piece about boinking wax effigy, I don't think the piece would have resulted in the popularity and acclaim of Marienbad Elegy. The dude was 73, proposing marriage to an 18 year old probable virgin (via his patron, the Grand Duke of Saxe-Weimar), for her intellect and beauty; the poem describing the old man's feeling after rejection was the master piece. You need the real relational experience to write inspiring pieces.

    Speaking of Goethe as your model of a Renaissance Man, aren't you forgetting the first thing Faust did after trading in his soul for unlimited power? He fell in love and impregnated a teenager. He didn't go hire a hooker, LOL.

    Raising children is not hard when you have the resources and the dedicated partner to be on the spot at all time.

    I'm working towards my Renaissance man goals and for me, kids are not in that picture. I think we'd already had that discussion earlier.

    All three examples of Renaissance men that you mentioned (Gothe, Jefferson, Franklin) were very reproductive men. Having a clutch of kids entertaining you, helping you and stimulating your mind is not a distraction but a positive ingredient in your quality of life. Kids are only burdens for people who can not afford them. It's like employees: for employers who can not afford them, they are burden, but for the ones who have the means, extra hands can be put to good use.

    BTW, being able to afford them doesn't just mean being able to buy diapers, but being able to secure either a dedicated mother or being able to pay full-time staff, to change the diapers when you are not in the mood of discovering how diaper changing can be done more efficiently via some technology that you may come up with. LOL

    Blowing money on hookers is really subsidizing social dysfunction. You can do so much more for the young women and their statistically almost certain to happen children by impregnating them with your own sperms and supporting them . . . if you can afford it.

    There can still be a common goal: raising children together in a co-parenting arrangement outside marriage.

    Reality, despite your over-the-top messages, I get it, you're a parent.

    On the other hand, I'm not. A lot of that stuff needed to happen earlier in life. Today, it's simply too late.

    I did not become a parent until I was 33. And I intend to father more children with 20-something year olds despite myself having reached 40 already. Raising children is not hard when you have the resources and the dedicated partner to be on the spot at all time. Once you have an economy of scale going, the older kids love to pitch in helping raising the younger kids.

    Afterwards, according to that vein of thought, a particularly special woman, a person who did *absolutely* nothing for me for the prior 3.5 decades, is suppose to have access to my eggs nest and why would that be? Because she's that "one".

    Not necessarily "the one," but it is a fair trade to let her having access to some of your nest eggs in exchange for your access to her eggs. Your nest eggs just put you in a better bargaining position for her eggs, compared to losers of her own age.

    You see, I don't buy that kinda thinking. For the most part, many in my age bracket simply go for the guy who'll help in footing the bills, since they probably need the financial assistance at the time.

    Why your own age group? Why not younger ones below 29?

    All that chatter about love and compatibility meant something when both parties were struggling and working together for a common goal. Today, the goals have diverged. My goal is to be free and a Renaissance man. Her goal would be to find a guy who's *made it* and get him to take care of her.

    There can still be a common goal: raising children together in a co-parenting arrangement outside marriage. Pick one (or several in sequence if you can afford them) that love children and know how to raise children, then finance their child-raising efforts after impregnating them; that way, you get to have your companions and entertainment when you are too old to enjoy the hookers and blow. Assuming you do not die young of disease or over-work, you will be too old some day to keep up with a work and hook schedule. You will need family members who are willing to put up with a grumpy old man.

    Guess what, life happens. As long as people are having sex kids will be born. Even birth control is not a 100%

    If there were no subsidies for the poor to have children, there would be much less children born into poverty and raised in neglect.

    What about the kids that have to go to and from school through the alley. What kind of danger will the kids be exposed. Just so a couple of self absorbed pigs can feel elevated. Discusting!

    That is the idea behind the separate entrance: after you pay $2Mil+ to be in one of those condos, do you really want your kids to go through a gauntlet of unemployed drug-pushers on welfare, hmm, I mean "affordable housing subsidies" and their never-ending stream of visiting friends, on their way to and from school? Walking through hall ways that stink of pot?

    The self-absorbed pigs feeling elevated are the city hall politicians forcing the integration as condition for construction. The poor and the rich would be both better off if there were no such forced integration.

  • On 21 Jul 2014 in What if we militarized the healthcare system?, Reality said:

    In most (formerly) socialist countries, the best doctors are indeed military doctors, and their service is reserved for the ruling elite (i.e. the modern day aristocrats, as their families also enjoy the privileges).

    Market economy is meant to have everyone being treated equally in front of the law (and consequently equally in front of money, as money means inducement of voluntary action from another person). In the attempts to create a more "equal" society, classical feudal privileges seemed to have been the result.

    LOL. How old are you? How is that pair of melons substantively different from a line of white powder on a glass mirror? What do you think the girl with the melons would have to do in your absence with the money you give her? To her, you are the conference call client!

    Why channel your resources towards dysfunction? When the same resources can do so much more for a young woman or a few young women in that stage of their lives before they become drug whores.

    And thus, my type of narrative like ... my snake was awakened to her swollen melons; I'd felt the sandwich of a Menage-a-Trios; the slide of her smooth, naked body sent me into a catatonic reverie; and so forth would be me writing a trip report.

    LOL, those were my preferences too, during my high school and college years, when I was afraid of knocking girls up.

    Just like any other drug addiction, if you have enough money to throw at it for the rest of your life, it's not a big problem. However, if you don't, then it's going to be a problem sooner or later.

    and throwing your money at some retarded ameriskank who is liable to TAKE EVERYTHING, legally, is a better idea?

    If you don't marry the girl, she can't take every thing from you. The maximum exposure on child support mandated by court in most states is only around $2000/mo; give her a little extra to keep her happy and keep your own kid well-provided for.

    The Phillipines was cheap when the report was written, in the early 2000's. With the rapid rise of real estate bubble in the Far East in the most recent 10 years or so, the wealth gap between Westerners vs. local Chindian zillionaires over there are rapidly closing if not closed already. The "Ameriskank" you write so much about may well populate the desert "Angels City" in Nevada or Arizona or Miami soon for sex tourists coming from other parts of the world, and of course will have their attitude adjusted to accommodate the customer's wishes.

    It's about the burn rate, I don't think a senior engineer's nest egg can last long funding exotic beauties in a far away land given those global economic trends in recent years. It's not a good idea to have one's addiction exposed to foreign currency exchange risk.

    Rin,

    I just finished reading the "trip report." LOL, it's an addiction all right. Perhaps not dopamine induced by drugs, but dopamine produced by the guy's own body.

    Men give, women take. It's a template for how the entire family works. Parents give, children take. The family isn't a democracy, it's not a group of friends hanging out.

    Exactly how it should be. It's ridiculous to expect a 3yr old kid to pay for his/her share at the dinner table. Likewise, it's ridiculously dumb for a beautiful and otherwise intelligent woman to put out for a pot-smoking xbox-playing loser.

  • On 16 Jul 2014 in Addendum: No Kids and now, generally losing interest in women, Reality said:

    Marriage is simply a commitment to share resources for raising kids. Genghis had half the world to share with many women.

    Serial monogamy has its merits when it comes to reducing drama and keeping away contagious diseases, as well as assuring paternity. Life-long monogamy is a mind-fuck that only made any sense at all when a man barely had enough resources to support one woman his entire life.

    Having children without securing adequate support from a well qualified man is just the woman committing suicide, dragging her offspring into the same poverty stricken hell-hole in the process.

  • On 16 Jul 2014 in Addendum: No Kids and now, generally losing interest in women, Reality said:

    Rin,

    If you decide to think like a woman ("soulmate"), you need to go all the way: soulmate means life-long companionship not life-long rabbit sex. You need to recognize that marriage is a reproductive pact, and a retirement package for the women who are smart enough and capable to enough to find a man of your caliber.

    You can do both for her without marrying her: by giving her a baby or two and support her and your children. You need to recognize the value of female companionship in your advanced age; it beats the heck out of getting murdered by an escort like the late Google exec. Someone trust-worthy to share your inner-most thoughts without having to worry about her taking advantage of you is a person that you need to start cultivating now! Otherwise, most women going through their 30's and beyond would either get married (hence taken up by other men) or become desperately poor that they can not refrain from ripping off you. Having a baby with her to lock her down, and supporting her well, enables her independence and your long term options when you get old yourself. She will know which side of her bread gets buttered, especially when she doesn't have the ridiculous legal rights to be grasping (and frankly self-destructive) like in a marriage.

    Reality says

    "Government" is just coercion, robbery and murder that some people carry out in the name of others.

    If Hebrews had been like tea-baggers, they would hated the idea of following a leader, Moses, to the promised land.

    Instead would just spread in all directions as each individual would have had it.

    Because it's a fact that individuals always know better than the government.

    I hope you do realize, at the time of Moses, the "government" was the Pharoah. Moses was the individual who led a bunch of individuals in a different direction from where the Pharoah wanted to enslave them.

    I'm from the school of thought that the Renaissance man concept of prior centuries, like Johann Goethe, Ben Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, etc, died off during the postwar era where a man's life's purpose was to be, little more than a worker bee producing 2.x children to continue the society.

    Goethe was a member of Privy Council to the Duke of Saxe-Weimar;
    Franklin was the leading publisher of his time;
    Jefferson owned one of the largest plantations in Virginia.

    Those were not average worker men, but the equivalent of the head of Goldman Sachs, Google and billionaire landlords like Sam Zell and Donald Sterling of their own time. They all had serfs, peasants, servants or slaves taking care of their chores, so they could focus on cranking their big brains and their libidos! Yes, all three were very libidous men!

    So by me, resurrecting the concept as the modern Renaissance man, then as others follow suit, I can merely decrement my level to just another Renaissance man.

    Who the heck are you? Some upper-middle peasant? If you have to work for a living, you do not have the time to be a Renaissance Man. If you can not afford to procreate and/or keep several mistresses content and their offsprings sired by you properly fed and educated, your credential is dubious at best.

    A predatory woman whose only skill is to lay on her back and get knocked up by a rich dude is not a role model or a victim.

    Agree with almost everything else said in your post, except for this one. Such a woman is a far better case than the far more numerous and far more devastating cases of women getting knocked up by pants-dragging knuckle-walkers then have to live off taxpayers and raise the kids on TV and high-fructose corn syrup.

    I tried WD40. The motor was recently changed. I think the tracks could be bent.

    I'll see if I can fix it.

    #36 on the honey do list.

    WD40 is for light duty lubrication. Garage doors with wheels running on tracks typically require grease on the tracks. New motor can easily burn out if it is under-powered working against the weight of the door and the friction due to lack of lubes.

    The government is you're tool, your only tool. You own it.

    Even if oligarchy convinces you that all government can do is to serve their needs, you still own the government, you are just persuaded from exercising your ownership control.

    It's like saying:

    Coercion, Robbery and Murder are your tools, and your only tools; you own them.

    No I don't own the government. If I own it, can I have my slice of it? I want to sell it. Where is the buyer?

    Only individuals can come up with solutions to world's problems. "Government" is just coercion, robbery and murder that some people carry out in the name of others.

    Garage door getting stuck is usually a combination of under-powered motor and tracks losing lubricant. Tell your wife she should be reasonably good at applying lubes. LOL.
