Where the Hell Are the Men?

After a long and storied career, I would like to say that I have amassed a fortune. But not yet. However, I have faced 300-foot flame lengths as a firefighter, been asked to remove suspected anthrax from a county jail wearing nothing but a respirator mask and some rubber gloves, and been kicked out of a café in Paris because I realized I didn’t have enough money to pay for my beer (and I mean literally kicked in the ass into the gutter on the Champs-Elysées).

I won a bar fight in England and five years later got my clock cleaned pretty well for mouthing off about the World Series in a bar in Oakland. The Reds laid the wood on the A’s and, since I grew up near Cincy, I couldn’t keep my stupid trap shut. I’ll admit I had it coming, and I nursed a pretty decent-sized mouse under my right eye for about a week. Another time, at a music festival in Colorado, I challenged a biker twice my size for being a jerk to my wife. He would have killed me if it had gone to trading punches, but the men reading this will understand why I couldn’t back down.

  1. The "men" he's talking about, the woke wimps of the world, are not really the mainstream men of today. They're just the ones the MSM is promoting to make everyone think that all men are like that these days because they're the ones making it to the news. As usual it's a conspiracy of the left.

    What would Henry Bowman do?

  2. I still think this world was a better place when we used to lock up the nut cases and give them meds and made sure they didn't hurt themselves let alone others
    I kind of like my dad that way, if I see a guy going into the bathroom after my little girl went in,, he be fucked as they say . or even it wasn't my kid or wife I think I have a problem with it. dragging his ass out is just for starter, might get stomped if he needs it.
    but really we need to start locking these people up again for their own good and ours
    this is not normal by any standard. and the kid thing, they never find them as far as I see it.

    1. I was very lucky. my dad was a real bad ass un his day. I heard a lot of stories of wild shit he done back in his day and why he had to leave the country and change his name too.
      even when he was in his late 60's people walked around him and thought twice about trying to give him any shit. even still he give you the shirt off his back if you needed it enough. he was always helping others out with something.

  4. I was run out of a BBQ joint named The Little Red Bull in Dallas in 1971 at gunpoint for having long hair.

    Now I don't have any hair.

    1. I got in fights because of my long hair in the early 70's. More times than I like to count and, often, with five or six guys on the other side. I could handle my own one on one, but there ain't much you can do against that many folks, and I was only in my mid teens. Cops weren't much help.

      It finally let up when I faced down a black power history teacher over the fact that he was trying to convince us that the revolutionary war was fought and won by black slaves. I got him censured by the head of the history department and we actually heard about the white side of American history. I swear, that teacher tried to convince us that the Africans had discovered America because the word canoe was not derived from native American languages. Some of the rednecks were in my class and I was the only guy that had the temerity to say something.

      Oh well. After that, they were polite and respectful, but we never developed any kind of friendship. I left that shithole burg and found a better life elsewhere as soon as I could.

  5. no, there are not many men left in this world anymore, most have passed away never to return.
    they just don't make em anymore for some reason. doing a hard job to help others, standing your ground in a fight when you know your going to get your ass kicked regardless. the ones doing the ass kicking would at least have respect for you and would carry you to the hospital and drop you off at the door back in the day.
    good times, i fear they are gone guys.

  6. In the article, the author mentions the great job Megan Fox does at dissecting Matt Walsh's appearance on Dr. Phil.

    I've seen the Dr. Phil video, but does anyone know what he's talking about?

  7. There was a time, not long ago, when running your mouth got your ass beat down seriously. There was a time, not long ago, when men and women had different roles to fill and being confused about your roles didn't get you embraced by the world. Now we live in a time where busy bodies, Karens, wimpy men and socially unstable people in general are in control and they are fucking everything up. We are in the winter of this country and it's getting cold fast

  9. He explains where the men have gone in the 4th paragraph. Instead of coaching the young man in how to handle the problem, he took over the call and thought to himself what he should have said to the kid. Kid learned someone else will do the chore and the old guy failed to teach him how to handle a problem.

  10. I once drank a Russian under the table. He had a hundred pounds on me but I’m was a red haired Scots Irish kid and nobody out drank me. I don’t drink anymore, I retired undefeated.

  11. Back in the day the wife and I were exiting a restaurant via the bar, being closer to our vehicle, when one drunk dude sitting at a table with two buddies, reached out, grabbed my wife's boobs saying, "Are those real?" I broke a nearby chair over his head. His two buddies jumped to their feet while running their mouths. The chair was still somewhat intact so both of them got a taste. Before exiting I put some money on the bar for damages.

    About a month later we went back to the restaurant. The owner brought over two large drinks and put some money on the table. "The drinks are on the house", he said. "The money is the change from your last visit".

    Can you imagine that happening today?

  13. I was talking to a friend of mine just the other day about something similar. I don't know any male my age who doesn't look back on being 15-30 and saying "It's a wonder I'm alive."

    The other thing that is different is the stunning aversion to mild to moderate soft tissue trauma. The primary criterion for "hurt" when I was growing up was broken bone or major laceration. If someone went out and did something and came home with a moderate amount of contusion and mild lacerations, that was considered a learning experience. I can remember going fishing when I was about 11 with a friend and our fathers. We got in a fight and were rolling around on the ground letting go. My dad got up to stop the fight, but my friend's dad said "Eh, let them work it out," so they sat down, opened a beer, and watched us until we ran out of steam. *Then* they whipped our asses for fighting.

    Personally, I believe that this is why there are so many drug and crime deaths in younger folk nowadays. We've removed most other options for risk taking. And young men need to take risks and be aggressive.

  14. He and I probably could have been friends before I got old, because according to what is written we have a lot in common. Oh, by the way, fuck Neil Young.

  15. Used to take the bus to work in downtown Seattle. Often crowded, standing room only. I'd often get up and offer a seat to women with kids in tow, people who had crutches, and the like. Others would look at me like I'd just peed on the floor. The very idea of giving up my seat was too much to conceive. I came to understand that there are many useless bags of XY protoplasm in Seattle, but few men. Sad for a city built on strong men and tough women.

    1. When I first moved out to East Massholia (from the upper Midwest) I took the subway ("T") and would offer my seat to old people, pregnant women, etc. And yeah, people would look at you funny.

      The joke goes that one day on the T an old woman gets on a car without any empty seats. Two young men immediately pop to their feet to give her their seats. They look at each other for a minute and then the first guy says, "Wisconsin" and the other says "Iowa. Good to meet you."

  17. Is it just me or are most the white men I see in ads queer? Or even narrators. There's one that I see on occasion and delete quickly that even has a lisp. If he aint queer I'm Donald Duck. I think well maybe it's a style then think nah no real man would look like that.

  19. Soy and the idea we can solve all problems by talking about them. Soy increases estrogen. In Texas and Arkansas, driving past hundreds and hundreds of acres of soybean fields, I would just shake my head and wonder how far the Chinese had inserted their ideas.

    1. Around here the cash crops are tobacco and soy. If a field isn't planted in tobacco, it's soy. They rotate from one to the other, like tobacco for a couple three years, then a year of soy, then tobacco again.

  20. It's simple as what I did yesterday. Pulled up next to a young lady with flashers on. Rolled down my window, out of gas. I have a can in the bed of my truck would you let me put it in for you. Poured the whole two gallons had a little conversation and left. Did not want to get paid for it. No telling how many cars just drove around her. Did it a few years ago during a rare blizzard not far from my house She had two little children in the car. Went home poured the gas and left. My blessing as well as hers as I felt she was a single mom driving when she should not have been.

    Thank God for all the real men who post here, your blessings await you. And yes I have had my ass kicked, alcohol involved most cases.
