That is such a Lie. So, by taking your tack - does that mean all Macho Men hate Women? The very traits of Feminism : gentleness, empathy, sensitivity, caring, sweetness, compassion, tolerance, nurturance, deference, and succorance ... teaming & multi-tasking. Beware, be very wary of putting a 'bad' label on female or male; it isn't moving us as humans forward in the joining of humanity - into humane beings. When divided, when attacked ... when prejudices take over, we loose ... find a different mate who appreciates you for who you are: warts & all.
There are positive and negative aspects of Feminism or men being Macho. But without having the 60's happening; where would a lot of us Women be? Thank God it didn't go all according to plan by the Elites who invented & invested in the 60's Feminist movement. Their main goal was to create another (cheaper) workforce that would pay TAXES. With the Mother working, it would negatively affect the American Family; by having the children be more dependent on the State. But what these elitist forgot are female traits that exist: gentleness, empathy, sensitivity, caring, sweetness, compassion, tolerance, nurturance, deference, endurance and succorance ... and our ability to Team & multi-task. Their were many VALUEABLE feminists who took the effort to CHANGE our world for the better for ALL of us and their virtue cannot be denied.

Are We Detroit?

Detroit was undune by Reducing Taxes to the Corporations, a common practice in many cities in the US. Poor City & State Planning messed this up, but these people are Not the ones who suffer from their short-sided approach. The underlying segregation between white & black ,rich & poor neighborhoods, lack of diversitication in industry sectors did them in. It is the heart of 'bottom lining' crony capitalism of us vs. them approach & providing very little of value in return. Elected officials who cannot Balance a Budget or in their case IMPROVE the (many years of) -negative cash flow, should never be electable again. It's the Crony Capitalism of the elite getting there's and having the regular Tax payer pay for it. The Middle-Class is being squeezed into the less wealth bucket & we're tired of having that bucket kicked around by those w/Handouts for more of the same. Political Corruption must Cease! Honorable Servants of ALL the people must be Common Place.

Battle of the Sexes

I did custodial work as a Second job & it PAID better than Retail Service Work. I also did volunteer work at the same College, while working FULL Time at a Big 500 Company. Years later I bumped into my x-co-workers I had trained (at another company I contracted out too ). They said they left Top 500 Company because their salary increase was too low & it slipped out how much they were making... I felt ROBBED. 30% more in Salary, 50% more in Salary/Bonus Increase to KEEP them than I had received. I trained them, I wrote several Documents / Standards / Guide Lines , that were SHARED across several SITES. I had actually been promoted to a higher Programnmer Position--where the Salary & Bonus was LESS. When I got Re-Hired by said Company--things had improved, but agan I was offered LESS by a Male Mgr. than a Female Mgr. who had a better position to boot. Guess which one I took. Woman are Excellent multi-taskers, but they don't promote or emote their successes or work to their superiors as much as Men do.

Seriously depressed reading the comments below & the tired/lazy comments above mostly made up of other people's quotes - 'agenda think for you' from John. Having personally felt the difference in my pocket book/purchasing power: Lower Bonuses, delayed Salary Increases, Lower Salary Increases ... were the Male counterparts I trained in a Top 500 Company that doesn't want us to SHARE our Salaries ... actually got exposed. Where your past Salary follows you through-out your career and has a direct affect on the long term monies & job opportunities you are eligible for. It only crosses political lines when politicians get benefitis for keeping the status quo. It's a Corporate 'Bottom Lining' campaign to pay a majority of Women less than their Male counterparts. I had one Mgr. explain to me that I was 'Single' vs the 'Married - Man' who had to support a Family. When you loose 25% off your Salary over a life-time & multiply that by 100M women ...that's alot of money saved by the Employer's. Sure they have a few 'Token' female stars to keep the rest satisfied that there is NO Glass Ceiling, but it's a FACT nevertheless. My three sisters also had similar stories. Until you are a Woman will you really know. Discrimination equates to money $aved.

Don't Blame Romney

Well, this is the First time I'm impressed by an article by Ann. Though she did miss what actually came out of Romney's own mouth that also added to his loss. It certainly doesn't help: o Having a pricely dinner for wealthy whites only and talk about the other 47%, o When Bain Capital a venture (vulture) capitalist corporation that is still closing plants and shipping the job over to China. o He won't restore Tax levels for wealthy 1-6% People & Corps, and favors tricke down economics. o When his Budget plan w/increased MIC spending, doesn't add up to a balanced budget. o That the republican base wants to go backwards 20-40-80 years. o When he lies & flip flops.

yes, I Love that . Now there is a glimmer of hope for the REST of the Main Street / Middle Class to gain some momentum. It will happen now, it just takes a little time based on each community/counties planning. Invest in Main Street first.

I guess you need 2ASK the right people. Our SCORE (non-profit) CAL organization takes you thru their Job & Networking process, additional Resume/Phone Interviews/Submitting RESUME on-line, several motivating classes 2keep you prepared. They even required a 16 hr commitment to work in their volunteer positions-ACTIVE. The BEST, their Friday's Network Auditorium Group Session where people told of openings they found but weren't qualified for. By 2-3, I found my next Job. I went diff 3 times, when I was a Contractor. My turnaround was 2 mo. to hire,.the avg was 4 mo. I have never collected unemployment. It's not only about Getting a job, it's keeping yourself prepared, networking, and dare I say Debit vs Credit Card, 6mo. Salary Saved

The arrogant apostles of corp nazism (like Ann Coulter) MUST use the tactics of distraction, bold lying, demons and smears in order to sell/defend their toxic policies, She has NO choice in being nothing but controversal...so voters who realize this quickly will see the 'TRUE' reality of any political issue/situation.

Ann Coulter on "The View"

Ann is a paid Spin Doctor. Her main objective is to stir up controversy. It's her signature style and anyone or anything is fair game. Did you know she tried running as a liberal? and then a democrate? Something she now abhors. Whatever pays the bills, garners publicity and her 15 minutes of fame. I respect Glen Beck alot more than her.
