NCFM NOTE: Here’s a great site for anyone interested in “THE WAR AGAINST WOMEN!” Reference after reference confirm how bad women have it, like, inheritances from husbands, women 50 and older controlling MORE than three-quarters of America’s financial wealth, or (my personal favorite) “only” 38.8% of wealthy women married money or got it because someone died – key word only, like 38.8% is a small, if not a negligible, amount.
You should bookmark this site just in case you don’t believe what you are reading and need to pinch yourself awake from the nightmare. Then ask yourself this, if your elected officials are running around helter-skelter, rabidly frothing at the bit, “THE SKY IS FALLING, THE SKY IS FALLING, THERE’S A WAR ON WOMEN, THERE’S A WAR ON WOMEN, WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO… OH MY GOD, THE SKY IS FALLING AND IT MOSTLY HURTS WOMEN…err, I MEAN WOMEN AND CHILDREN… IT’S ANOTHER PATRIARCHAL CONSPIRACY TO KEEP WOMEN FROM BREATHING…uh, err..I mean WOMEN AND CHILDREN… THE SKY IS FALLING…THE SKY…”
Then ask yourself if those same politicians became or are becoming wealthy promoting a non existent war. Might they be promoting a lie to detract from their unrelenting war against our sons? Enjoy… oh, if you are reading this and can’t do something as simple as joining NCFM you have no business complaining when the sky falls on you and yours. So, join us. Join NCFM. Do something constructive to help make the world a better place for all of us, which includes men and children.
