Happy Mother's Day, Atlasians and shruggers.
By rights, every day should be Mother's Day. Lord knows they deserve it. Thanks to the feminists' war on family and femininity, women can now "do it all," and "do it all" they must. The feminist movement was a leftist political movement rooted in Lenin/Marxist dogma, screaming about "empowerment" while demanding the government pay for it. Really?
Women must work, raise children, keep house, impose discipline, set the moral standard, be the example, etc., in many cases very much alone. I would think Donna Reed and Carol Brady were much more desired societal aspirations than, say, Amy on "The Secret Life of the American Teenager" or "16 and pregnant" or "Teen Mom."
Feminism was one of the worst things to happen to women. It has been worse for men. The poisonous fruits of the "liberation" movement are everywhere -- including the epidemic of single motherhood, the breakdown of the American family, the street vernacular of "bitches and hos," the emasculation of men, and the bone-crushing responsibility of single moms acting as mother, father, breadwinner, chief cook, and bottle-washer. And men don't know how do be men anymore (too busy waxing their asses).
The left's breakdown of sexual mores has led to the diminishment and dehumanization of women. Those men-hating parasites have ruined the glorious exaltation of women in 20th-century America. All one has to do is watch movies from the forties, fifties, and sixties (before the left culture rout) to catch a glimpse of the status of women. We were then formidable, respected, treasured, and above all...revered. It was as good as it gets.
Virtue, self-worth, and man's moral value are DOA in the age of the cultural domination of the left. What an awful stench this decaying corpse gives off, lying in a smoldering, fetid pile of ash.
Take care of your ma today. Go. Get flowers, a card, a chocolate. But more than that, hug her hard and long. She needs it.
Happy Mother's Day, Libby, may your soul rest in peace. You were the most divine, exacting, righteous, right, tough, impossible, delicious, glamorous mom evuh.

Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be lefties.
