    Out at the lake over the weekend, just guys, and the conversation turned to jobs that we hardly ever see women doing. Not CEOs, or Head Honchos, but regular jobs. After a few beers, the conversation turned to the current question in today's media and weekly protest is why can't women be the CEO or head of the med school, the President or the top astrologer.

    Then, we focused on the lesser, but more important, jobs like highway worker, or bricklayer, or construction guy. The obvious answer is women just don't want to do those types of jobs. Neither do a lot of men, but lots do.

    In lots of these areas, manager worked in the trenches before they were manager; probably everyone of these occupations. Are women against that? Why, for instance, are so few women employed as bus or truck mechanics? It seems to me that just by total numbers, there are far more opportunities in these fields than their are in other, more prestigious, areas.

    There used to be an all girl framing crew in Tampa. They were damn good carpenters.

    For the OP, I assume you meant astronomers who are knowlegable about stars and space while astrologers are fakes who want you to believe they can tell the future. Even better are astrophysicists who are PhDs in physicis specializing in the functioning of stars.

    Not a lot of jobs women can't do, extreme athleticism/strenght means women won't meet current SEAL standards. But, the nation tried hard to elect a woman to the White House, fortunately the witch failed. Not that a woman can't do the job, being better than the Obummer is a very low standard to meet.

    Most secretaries are women, most nurses are women but the number of men is increasing, maybe just a function of societal images for each gender? Don

    I would say for a few on that list, women, in general, don't have any interest in the subject while many men are fascinated by it. Mechanics and electronics are what I'm referring to. I know that's sexist, but so is nature.

    But like one shot kills/stops against a charging attacker with .25 auto, or failures to stop with a major caliber, it is the exception and not the rule. Not saying it hasn't or doesn't happen, just don't expect it to be there for you when the chips are down.

    Liberalism always focuses on the .0001 of the time the impossible or near impossible actually does happen and not the overwhelming odds that it won't happen. Like the high school drop out that founds and runs a major corporation. Don't hold your breath or stand on one leg to see this guy at your reunion laughing at the degreed and upper class college grads there.

    This along with a myriad of other examples flies in the face of one simple rule of life.

    Some things almost always (or will), fail. No matter how often the dice is rolled. No matter the amount of wailing about 'unfairness' or other liberal claptrap they are so famous for.

    Some things almost always work, or will work w/o fail, no matter how many times the die is cast. Simple proven historical and logical fact.

    The lack of common sense and logic with these people never ceases to astound me. Liberalism always favors the proven failure. Perhaps this explains their abject religious fervor for socialism and another 'ism' I won't go into here.

    Let's pretend that not everyone lives in the trippy world or understands the trippy language......

    Could you please rephrase that paragraph to common English and circle back to the OP's question?

    Liberal female mechanic .0001% because of......????????

    This thread seems like a good place to scribe a thought I have had along the same lines as the OP many times. When discussing the musical legends of the past 40 years or so since the British invasion, and focusing on blues/rock - why are there not more women on the list ? They certainly have the creativity, and the skill to play instruments as well or better than men. Why is there no Erica Clapton ? There are some specific examples of course but it seems a male dominated field for no good reason ?

    Country music on the other hand is rife with creative, talented women. What gives?

    Because we are smarter than men. And the men who do the "regular jobs" need women to tell them how to do it right.

    I was a maintenance mechanic in production factory, did a lot of electrical, piping,fabricating with heavy steel. A few women would test in but never get through probation. Steel gets heavy after working 8-12 hours a day forever. I know there are women out there that can do this stuff, but they are somewhat few and far between.

    You're correct sir; I did mean astronomer.

    The point is that, and to Rabbi this, the numbers don't lie. There are certain jobs that women just won't do, and a few that they, with few exceptions, can't do. Grave digger for instance; probably not more than 10 female gravediggers in the whole country, but there are lots of female morticians.

    And G30, it was just one of those topics that came up. No idea why, other than maybe beer?

    Some things fail, some things work. No matter how many times its tried. Round pegs don't fit in square holes of the exact same size.

    Libs champion historically and logically proven failure no matter how many times it fails. "Not enough money was thrown at the problem!" "It isn't fair". "I don't accept logic!" "We are here now! It won't fail this time!" on and on and on with staggering amounts silliness and other well used PCBS that results in the same results, often over hundreds of years.


    As far as "trippy" goes, I can't match "Liberal female mechanic .0001% because of .......????????"
