    1, of either gender, or any gender, or both genders, or gender dismembered, I disremember.

    I don't need a spirit guide to help in the brainwashing. It took a lot of skull sweat to throw off the propaganda that I ingested from society as I grew up. Believe me, everyone knows the liberal position on all of these issues. It's no mystery because we've all had it shoved down our throats via popular culture for our entire lives.

    Praises at my funeral? I won't be alive to enjoy that.

    Every one of them called me to tell me how things were going in their life this week. And it's only Tuesday. That's good enough for me.

    I don't believe you know the liberal position on much. I think you know the socialist position on this and the feminist position on that and the leftist position on most things and some of the anarchists positions and big-government corporatist conservative positions on almost everything but I don't think you know much about liberalism.

    I raise my daughter now as a princess, but to be a queen later. By that I mean she needs to understand to be the boss she has to pay the cost. In her teens I will make sure she knows that the majority of boys think with their dicks, and as she becomes college age to be cut throat and unapologetic. All throughout, I want her to know that honesty is the best policy, and when she is older hopefully she will learn on her own when to be honest and when to not.

    I want her to know that her daddy is always there for her, but that if she screws up, I will expect a better result from her later on for me helping her out. And she can screw up quite a bit, just as long as I know she is sincerely trying. This whole "Let them be independent strong individuals" is very vague and to me sounds like you just let them do whatever the hell they want. That doesn't work. Focusing them, giving them support, and making sure she knows that she is cut from a different cloth is a better option. She is and always will be my little princess, I just want her to go in the right direction.

    I think you're nitpicking and playing a bit of semantics there...however, I think we generally are saying the same thing.

    There's a difference between "raising" a daughter "to be" strong and independent, and "letting" them be strong and independent.

    Again, I think we're in agreement so .........

    I suppose, why can't I just raise her like a princess right?
