Congratulations on your new book! I didn't realize you're a writer, either! I earn my living doing travel writing (online) although I've been interested in writing since I was a child. I want to write a book - but haven't yet. Congrats to your "staff" too!
Hugs, Cindy

Cindy Adkins said...

P.S. I just looked at your books. Gosh, I apologize for not taking a closer look at your blog before! I didn't realize "Katz Tales" was the title of a book you wrote! I think it's so cool you wrote about your cats. I've always wanted to write a romance novel, too! Will be taking a closer look! Hugs, Cindy

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

The Human thinks this sounds like a really interesting book. We is going to check it out.

Meanwhile, excellent snoopervising. You're all so organized!

We will have to save up our green papers. Maybe Santa will bring it to us. Hope all of you have a super week end.

Why American men should boycott American women

Boycott American Women

I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don't know how to cook or clean, don't want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

Tens of millions of American men have had their lives completely destroyed by American women through the following crimes:

1. False rape accusations (it has been proven that up to 80 percent of rape accusations are FALSE)

2. False domestic violence (DV) charges (same as above)

3. Financial destruction of men in divorce courts through alimony and support payments (women get up to 95 percent of their ex-husband's income and savings, as well as the house, car, etc)

4. Emotional destruction of men by ex-wives who have stolen their children from them and forbidden contact

5. Divorced dads who commit suicide as a result

Not one single American woman has EVER condemned their fellow American women for committing these crimes against men. Silence means consent. Therefore, American women support and enjoy destroying men's lives and causing men to commit suicide. Apparently, American women think it is okay to be a criminal, just as long as you are a woman. Therefore, is it any surprise that a huge percent of American men no longer want anything to do with American women, other than using them for easy sex and then throwing them away?

Over 50 percent of American women are single, without a boyfriend or husband; so the fact is most American men no longer want to marry American women. Let these worthless American women grow old living alone with their 10 cats.


BRAND NEW: Buy the Boycott American Women book. After reading this book, I promise you that you will never even think about dating an American woman ever again, or else I will give you your money back. That’s right, if you are not convinced by my book, I will give you a full refund!

I'm going to ask my husband to find a copy in Singapore when he stops there for transit. He always has enough time to enjoy strolling downtown. If he doesn't find one, then, I'm going to get online.
