Just stop this crap 2.
There's a lot of idiotic agitation about North Korea and Persia and atom bombs. The purveyors of standard nonsense are mooing that they Hope these Countries will Behave Maturely and Join the Community of Nations. If these two Countries persist in testing nukes, we will be Sorely Displeased, and we will Show our Displeasure by Frowning. All Options Are On The Table, but we will not pick up any of the options and use them; we will just Frown. Like good squishy modern parents, we will shake our head and say "Now Persia, you know this is Not Good."
This is beyond silly.
First, NoKo and Persia know goddamn well that we are pitiful paper tigers.
Second, ACQUIRING NUKES IS A RITE OF PASSAGE. Countries behave more maturely AFTER they have a couple of nukes. It's like getting a driver's license. When you're behind the wheel, you realize that your recklessness will lead to a crash that kills you as well as the other guy.

Separate but equally annoying, all the purveyors of standard nonsense are chirping in unison "Oh look! See Michelle! See how she made it to the top by hard work! Hard work! Hard work! Hard work! Work, Michelle, work! Look, look, look!"
Ratshit. She made it to the top by being pretty and by marrying the right man. Her college degree and career are totally irrelevant; her talents as a wife and mother are tremendously important. That's very hard work, but it's NOT the kind of hard work the purveyors are chirping about, and it's not the kind of hard work that Michelle herself is recommending when she speaks to young women.
Think about this: Michelle Obama is a shining example
of the traditional and normal division of labor between man and woman. She has clearly done everything possible for the success and happiness of her husband and kids. Her husband is the most successful man in the world, and her kids appear to be sane, civilized and happy. Yet she's telling
young women to follow the modern and abnormal model, which leads to failure for most families.
But she wouldn't be in this position at all if she'd been an ugly girl. Like it or not, that's a fact.
