More for you in the third world

I like Fred On Everything.

Today’s topic is how to marry a developing world woman.

Not sure if it’s the best idea – the main problem is you’d have to live there.

Once any woman gets to the first world, they adopt all the first world – Oprah like – qualities.

It’s what’s around us that’s the problem. The media, for one. They tell women how to hate men.

Why would a man deliberately set out to marry a woman in the Third World—or, if you prefer, the “developing world”? For any of several reasons, which men talk about in private but not when they might be overheard:

Fred turns off Madison Ave. and lives the life on the lake in Mexico. Sounds good to me.

Nanny state gone nuts

You’ve heard of overprotective parents – how about overprotective states?

A couple forced to give up three children for adoption despite a judge ruling they may have been wrongly accused of abuse yesterday vowed to take their legal fight to Europe.

This should scare any man considering getting rid of his wife.

Wayne Tippett has just two things of any real value left in his life: a 10-year-old car and a granite tombstone.

My advice to this guy: leave the country – fast.  Try Mexico.  Since you have no kids, don’t come back.

Adolph and kin

While the parents of these kids are loons, I hope the state had a better reason to remove the kids from the home.

A 3-year-old boy named Adolf Hitler and his two Nazi-named younger sisters were removed from their New Jersey home last week and placed in state custody, police said.

Is the pendulum swinging back towards the middle, towards the side of men in custody cases?

In a stunning and unusual family law decision, a Toronto judge has stripped a mother of custody of her three children after the woman spent more than a decade trying to alienate them from their father.

Why everyone’s getting Type 2

A great read on an epidemic more dangerous than AIDS.

We all know by now that type 2 diabetes is an epidemic. We’re seeing words like crisis and runaway all over the news and in the journals. Heart disease rates have been cut in half since the staggering margarine days of the 1980s, but diabetes has swiftly risen to fill that gaping void and meet the challenge of Completely Unnecessary Disease Epidemic.

The My Hero Project – Dr. Michael DeBakey

Forget these overpriced baseball players – here is a real hero.

It’s like this with Dr. DeBakey. Seventy-five years of firsts and foremosts, achievements and awards. His list of accomplishments is so utterly titanic, his resume requires an intermission, a bit of time for the reader to stretch his legs and refuel for the second half.

We’ve heard of enough people that have killed lots of people – how about someone who has saved, both directly and indirectly, whole cities worth, heck, maybe even whole countries worth!

Heart surgery for 100-year-olds

I cannot believe that one of the world’s greatest heroes was subjected to an ethics committee to determine eligibility!

Then there’s Dr. Michael DeBakey, the pioneering heart surgeon who died July 11 at age 99. Two years ago, DeBakey underwent an aortic-dissection repair procedure that he himself had long before devised – but only after doctors convened an ethics committee to decide whether it was appropriate.
