Yes, there is. Ransom just made it up. Ever heard of coining a word?

So today in my aerobics class was a lady with a shirt on touting Palestine. Now I know what to say to her -- "Sooo, you support people who beat women and kill gays?"
Let me add to Kevin's comment -- high minimum wages hurt the poor, small businesses, teenagers (starting out in the job market with fewer skills and less experience), and the less skilled.
Let me count the ways . . . No, let me just start with a personal example: the Bush tax cuts in 2003 gave me and my husband (who together made less than $100,000 a year) a $2000 break from the taxes we paid the year before.
Who translated PARQUE ALEGRIA to HOPE PARK? It's HAPPINESS PARK. To get "Hope Park" it would be "Parque de Esperanza."
Marlette, Medium household sizes have gone down (fewer wage earners per household) since then. While individual income has risen, when you look at households, it's "flat."

My alma mater, tiny Wayland Baptist College, has parents that strongly supported women's basketball. For decades, the Flying Queens were number one in the US. Any girl that wanted to make it big in basketball went to Wayland. They toured the world playing against the Russian teams, the Chinese teams, and other Olympic quality women's teams. Many of today's women's basketball coaches were Flying Queens. Then Title IX hit, and when larger universities increased their spending on women's sports, Wayland couldn't compete. So yeah, perhaps women have more opportunities, but their opportunities are more spread out and perhaps not as grand.
