    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

    Ayn Rand:
    "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

    G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

    Forum rules need to be applied to everyone. Bullying and disrespecting women is not a character trait Studebaker aficionados should be proud of.

    I enjoyed the news clip. Good for him! Not sure what it could have to do with Politics.

    Thanks for posting, Bob. Anyone offended has some soul searching to do.

    The CBS News piece is awesome. It shows a good man doing what he does best - controlling an animal.

    The Gillette ad is not awesome. It is a bald faced piece of virtue signaling designed to shame every human with one X chromosome. If I remember my Business Analytics course correctly, corporations exist to sell products, not to preach morals to the public.

    That the behaviors depicted in the ad are not acceptable is not in question. We all know jerks and ass*****. What is outraging male viewers is that the ad paints us all with the same broad brush, and worse, condescends to us. This is not a political issue, it’s a social issue - one of a faceless corporation pre-judging me on the basis of my gender... something we can all agree is wrong, whether from a person, a company, or a government.

    i am not ashamed of being a man. I am ashamed of men who behave like animals. And when I see them doing this, I step in. I do not need a corporate advertisement to tell me I should do this. As President Kennedy famously quoted, “All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.”

    Finally, for those complaining that this is a “political” posting, let me say that it is only because you have made it so. And let me remind you that personal attacks on other members in open Forum are also against the rules.
