    I mostly watch ballgames and old movies on tee vee, but see these ads for current TV shows and new movies that seem to play up the dysfunction angle. How many ads do you see where characters break out of America's ordered and safety mode, only to become bad ass want-to-be cynics? Is that a sign of the times, or has dysfunction always been funny? Women and women parents aren't always portrayed in the best light either. And I don't see all these media portrayals as being totally monolithic in a shift. The Honeymooners is, arguably, the best comedy of all-time, but Ralph and Ed often played dunderheads to their more apparently sensible wives. Homer Simpson is a dunce compared to Marge, but I used to ROTFL the first few years of that show. Archie Bunker was often portrayed as weak and foolish, but liberal Norman Lear made sure liberal character Meathead got his share of jabs. Maybe those are exceptions, or it's not a total tidal wave?

    I think this is a thoughtful post, especially the last line as a springboard. There is obviously structural change over the past few decades, but how much of this is just men and women arguing age-old things because of biological differences?

    This 2007 CBS story starts off that way and points exactly to the shows you mention; however, they seem to play it off in the end. The 10 minute clip is probably long for a discussion forum, but I think you will be interested. This guy's Youtube comment in part II of the video makes some good points:

    I listened to the NC State-Syracuse game on the radio the other night. Wolfpack almost folded when Boeheim switched from their zone to a more frenetic style. This time though, NC State handled it and went on to win. As it stands now, they might have enough signature wins to get in. Probably could use one or two more good wins though.

    Yeah, chess is one of those games they dub Easy to learn, but hard to master. I don't play much either. It's just too many variables, so it's like work to me. My wife can take me out in a minimum number of moves. It's funny though, because she doesn't like this really old game called Broadside. I find Broadside style slightly similar to chess, but she swears she does not understand the game. I like Upwords (Scrabble) because you think, but you can exhaust the variables much easier. I still lose 3 of 4 games, but find it more enjoyable. Mastermind is a thinking game that'll make you go "Damn!" when your losing ass can't figure it out. Ever play TiGo? It's a version of the old Chinese game called Go. It's similar to Broadside in that each side has different pieces, and therefore, different strengths. It's 4 tigers versus 20 goats. The object for the tigers is to jump all 20 goats. The object for the goats is to surround all 4 tigers. Different from chess in that sense. Okay, so I sort a got off track, but there's some trivia in these old nostalgia games. Plus, it relates to the thread in the my mother-in-law is going to live with us.:eek: She has a visa from half way around the world. She doesn't speak much English, so these games actually give me an idea for an activity.

    The white knight a chess analogy. Here's the rest: pawn = you queen = divorced wife; or, the most powerful piece on the board king = not you, but the government judge who rules against you bishop = forget praying, pawn; you haven't got a prayer rook/castle = A man's home is his castle. Until the court decrees it to the queen.

    Ha ha; good deliveries on live TV without missing a beat: Jane Curtin: Dan, times change and so does the nature of relationships. People are reluctant to get married these days and looking at divorce statistics, who can blame them. But the lack of a piece of paper does not neccessarily mean a lack of a total commitment. A woman is this modern-day relationship may well give up all her personal pursuits, as Michelle Marvin claims she did, to give her full support to her man's career. And Michelle Marvin is just asking that the courts recognize that reality. Dan, there's an old saying: "Behind every successful man there's a woman." A loving, giving, caring woman. But you wouldn't know about that, Dan, because there's no old saying about what's behind a miserable failure. Dan Aykroyd: Jane, you ignorant slut! Bagged-out, dried-up, slunken meat like you and Michelle Triola know the rules. If you want a contract, sign on the dotted line. Oh, but let's all shed a tear for poor Michelle Triola. There was only testimony that she had sexual intercourse over forty times with another man while living with actor Lee Marvin. But I suppose that sort of fashionable promiscuting means nothing to you, Jane, who hops from bed to bed with the frequency of a cheap ham radio. But hell hath no fury like a woman's scorn, and Michelle Triola, like a screeching, squealing, reptatious swamp sow is after actor Lee Marvin's last three million dollars. I guess what you and Michelle are saying is that when you're on your backs, the meter is running. Well, please spare us, gals, and tell us the rate's at the top. Then we can choose which two bit tarts and bargain basement sluts to shack up with. Jane Curtin: That's the news. Good night, and have a pleasant tomorrow.

    Yes, in a sense that is what is happening. Okay, I did leave something out. Zip's 2nd job is with the Federal Reserve. There's a Russian co-worker girl Zip doesn't get along with, hence all his posting about Russian election interference and also Ukrainian support. Now, this Russian woman is the wife of RPF's owner. She is reputedly 5' 11' with very shapely calves. I don't know her name yet, but it ends in the letter "a." Maybe Natasha, Marina, Sasha, Tatiana. Or something like that. So the Russians actually did interfere with the election, and Natasha was heavily involved. Zip suspected this so he took action. He's actually a photography whiz by night. Now, Zip developed a camera that takes pictures of computer contents without even turning on the computer. He took a picture of Natasha's computer while she was in the bathroom. That's when he discovered the damning information about election hacking. Instead of submitting it to the government however, Zip decided to use it for his own personal gain. Zip contacted RPF's owner. Zip told the owner that he was going to blow the entire lid on the Russian election hacking operation unless he could continue posting here.

    Well, suit yourself, but it's all there in black and white. He goes on vacation for a week and doesn't post for a week. He had a family situation and didn't post for three weeks. He had a Saturday wedding photo shoot a couple of weeks ago and didn't post that day. There's no other guy posting. The reason he doesn't even have to hide his info is because people look for complicated explanations where a simple one will do. It's all there; I don't know if people are reading or not.

    Meh, the Seahawks switch is easy to forget, especially for a guy in his mid fifties. He also doesn't go out of his way to hide his public internet information. All of this isn't as elaborate as it sounds or as much as I once thought. In the end, it's just some guy working at the grocery.

    Well, I got two replies out of the 15 emails I sent. That's a 13% response rate, which is about average overall for all the emails I've sent on this issue. The 2 email replies were favorable, with both legislators agreeing with me. I did not however, get any responses when NH tried this a few years ago, and I probably sent out more emails. I've emailed legislators in other states on the same issue. Texas tried implementing roadblock legislation for 8 years straight without success. Oregon tried it by attempting to change the constitution. Their bill actually said that roadblocks would be an exception to their own 4th amendment version. Wisconsin tried it without success. Can't quite remember, but Washington state probably tried it. One Rhode Island legislator was trying to strengthen their prohibition against roadblocks awhile back, but that did not go far. Utah tried to legislatively ban roadblocks a few years back. I was in email contact with the sponsor, Dave Butterfield. I watched the long debate on the house floor. People who opposed Rep. Butterfield were pretty irate. Butterfield actually cited some of my research in the debate, but he might have already had the information. The bill to prohibit roadblocks passed in the house, but was not taken up by the senate. The nice thing about this is that some legislators will actually correspond with you via email. A lot of them are just regular joes with jobs. I feel like small potatoes, but about all I can do from my spot here is share information.

    Maybe you would have been better served going to a private school than your public university. I have found several cases of you misspelling simple words, including pursuit (you spelled it persuit; see post 7) and truly (you spelled it truely on two different occasions, including today). Of course, maybe you're not Original Zip. I don't think he makes those mistakes.
