Men buy things for women as a symbol of their love, but most men go wrong by thinking it's the thing that counts. Women are after the love, attention, and thought behind the item. This means that the item itself is irrelevant. This has led me to the conclusion that men that brag about how expensive the gift they gave their wife/girlfriend is not about the wife, but about showing off their masculinity.
Women are after the love, attention, and thought behind the item. Therefore, why not just give her love and attention. Most women are not after men for their money, and this is becoming more true in an age of women's equality in the work force (If a woman does just want you for what she can get, then you might not want her) Why not just cut to the chase and give her the attention she is after? Write her a poem to show you're thinking about her when she does not expect it instead of when you're in trouble.

The saddest part of the modern world is that a lot of big banks have figured out how to use "soft imperialism" tactics to rake in massive profits. Granted, the tactics were modified a little. However, the concept of power and control is still the same.
The answer to fighting the oligarchy is to keep America free under code of law, then have a nation wide attitude change toward working together and financial responsibility. Americans (as of right now) are still free under code of law. If you do not owe the oligarchy anything, then they will have nothing to control you with.
Banks want to make money. A population that is financially responsible will still have the banks making plenty of money. Banks benefit from a responsible nation, but they get blinded by quick profits a lot (see "Addicted to Power"). Ayn Rand put it best when she talked about how all humans do what is in their own best interest.
Real change has to start from the ground up. Americans spend wildly out of control and have large amounts of credit card debt, then get mad at the government for spending wildly out of control. The problem is a nation wide attitude toward money. The people need to start working together, getting their finances under control, then demand the government do the same.

I've come to the conclusion that players/seductresses that chase others for sex, then leave them right after they get their way are not interested in sex.
If a woman/man is comfortable enough with a partner to have sex once, then there is a high chance that there will be a second time. If there there is a second time, then there is a very high chance of a third, fourth, etc.
The fact that people get what they want, then leave to go out to find others shows that sex is not the goal. If sex was the goal, then they would have stayed were they were.
The thrill of the chase is not about sex, but about control. Being a player/seductress is about honing your smooth talking until you can convince anyone to give you what you want. This is what players/seductresses are after.
Being a player (male version) or a seductress (female version) is about using words, sexually desired behavior, etc to evoke emotions that control or get the person addicted too your attention.
This is why the "The Thrill of the Chase" is abusive to a certain extent, because it is not based in love or even natural lust for sex.
The "Thrill of the Chase" is a cold and calculating game of putting people in a mental or emotional box to control them in order to get your way.
Players and seductresses do not stick around after them get what they want, because getting their way is the win- and why would a person stick around after they already got the win?

I've come to the conclusion that America has the perfect triple punch of bad health. Americans have high stress, unhealthy diet, and no exercise.
I think that it is these combined elements that are destroying us. I think Americans have gone wrong in thinking that fixing one to two areas will solve it. We need to look at the whole.
Other cultures work just as hard as Americans, but are not as stressed out as we are. Other cultures eat high fat diets, but do not deal with the same health problems we deal with. All cultures need exercise.
So, what has gone wrong with our system that has given rise to such an unhealthy population? There are many solutions and ways of thinking about this, but I would argue that we need to start looking at the whole instead of just the pieces.
A high stress lifestyle will take a toll on your life regardless of how much a person exercises. A bad diet will take a toll regardless of how low stress your life- I yield these points.
However, Americans seem to have all of these unhealthy elements in our lives all the time. This has created a dangerous combination for our healthy. This is why we need to start looking at the whole as interconnected and all effecting the other elements.

Lawyers are a direct reflection of the causes the culture hires them to fight for. Lawyers can only argue with the sociology, legal codes, and cultural codes that already exist.
The purpose of law is to give people an outlet for their grievances without them taking matters into their own hands. This keeps society so called "civilized".
Criminal Courts keep people from taking revenge into their hands; Civil Courts give people an outlet without taking blows at each other; and Business Courts allow companies to fight each other without raising private armies (it happened in the middle ages!)
Lawyers are trained rhetoric mercenaries of the courts. Make no mistake, Lawyers might be polite and educated, but they are trained strategists fighting for whoever hired them.
People think that Lawyers are powerful, but this is not true. Lawyers can only argue what is already there and are merely fighting for the causes they are hired for.
If you really care about a cause in this world, then put together a fund to hire lawyers. The environment, more literature or science in schools, or your individual rights as Americans. I promise that lawyers will have a strategy put together to fight for your cause by the time the ink is dry on their check.
Lawyers are not good or bad. Lawyers are whatever society asks them to become. If you want to make society better, then start hiring lawyers to fight for the causes you believe make society a better place to live.
The key to this is to start a group or get involved with a group that fights for causes that you are interested in. The NRA for gun rights, NRDC for the environment issues, and most recently groups have been started that are hiring lawyers to fight for the legalization of marijuana.
