Who Said You Could Talk?

We don’t care if he was elected by the Afghan people. Obviously the man doesn’t understand US OCCUPATION.

BBC: “Afghan President Hamid Karzai has reiterated his refusal to sign a key US security pact until a peace process is under way with the Taliban.

Afghanistan will absolutely not accept or sign anything under pressure,” he said at a news conference on Saturday. Most Nato-led foreign combat forces are due to leave this year, as combat operations are declared to be over.  Without a deal, the US will not be able to keep troops in Afghanistan after the end of 2014.

The pact, known officially as the Bilateral Security Agreement, was agreed in principle last year, but Mr Karzai has consistently refused to sign it.”  More:

Why Must Men Do It Their Way?

Saturday, January 25th, 2014

Every woman wants to change men and most men would rather just go into the next room and watch TV. Men don’t seem to be in this “change 1/2 the world, one remote-clicker at a time” mode.

The two main female complaints are:  “Men don’t talk” and “Men don’t show emotions”.

What about talking? The average woman speaks around 21,000 words a day – the average man: about 12,000.  So women, when you’re all fired up to machine gun words after work, please realize men may have used up all of theirs by about 3:30. They probably don’t have any words left.

And who said talking more is better?  Many times fewer words are better if they’re the right words. Just ask the guys.

I know, I know…it’s to “relate” – emotional bonding.  Oops – guys crash again.  Showing emotions is a tricky thing for men – and the deck is stacked against us.  Women don’t want men to show all of their emotions.  Anger and fear aren’t best sellers – neither is melancholy.  So guys not only have to hack up feelings they’d rather keep to themselves, they’ve got to throw out the “right” feelings.

Who made up these rules – Oprah?

Why do guys always accept being changed?

Most psychologists would agree it’s based on that old joke most of us heard as kids:

Boy – “You don’t have one of these!”
Girl – “Yeh, but with one of these – I can have all of those I want.”

True?  Hey, don’t ask me.  I just used up all my words for today.
