Watcher’s Council Results 3-4-16: On Having Sons

The Watcher’s Council posts are below. Always such great weekend reading. The Council’s “humble servant” had problems adding a snippet from the winning post. I want to give you these few words from the winning author after having dinner with three women friends:

Feminism is looking scary not empowering to women who have sons.~ Bookworm Room (link below)



The Council has spoken, the votes have been cast, and the results are in for this week’s Watcher’s Council match up.

““You cannot help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves.” ” – President Abraham Lincol


This week’s winning essay, Bookworm Room’s Self-reliance — the all-American virtue Is her fascinating look at an old fashioned, long ingrained American virtue and tradition…and the attempts to undermine it.

In our non-Council category, the winner was Laura Ingraham with a superb piece, –The Suicide of the GOP Establishment submitted by The Razor. The GOP is indeed splitting apart and Ms. Ingraham puts the blame exactly where it belongs. A must read.
