What Struggling To Buy Diapers Means For Low-Incom…

In my city, many stores lock up baby formula behind glass cases. Some decades ago a mother my age (whom I know personally) resorted to shoplifting disposable diapers out of the local supermarket. I'm sure that picture hasn't changed. I think of these things every time I hear some self-described 'pro family' advocate pretending that they care about what happens to women and children.   This is a national problem. Our consumer culture loves females at prom time, wedding time, and baby shower time. After that, we're on our own.   For those women who have had the rug pulled out from under them by a partner who has abandoned them, it isn't so much a question of whether they know where babies come from, but whether they have the savvy to know where their economic support will come from.

Let's Put all the Democrats in Jail

Franklin D. Roosevelt, the 32nd president of the United States, has been regarded as the architect of the welfare state in America. His New Deal has been criticized by the politically right as a one-way ticket to socialism. Welfare, in their minds, has taken the drive out of the American people. Why…

On California's desire to secede

I thought we had fought a war over the "right to secede". I am all for California not being a part of the United States, but the voters will have to decide. It is California and New York that are bleating over the last election not being won by "majority rule". I would vote for one of the countries …

I prefer intelligent women who reason.(A responce)

Whilst I agree that there are stupid women, there is an equal amount of stupid men. I have met women with the qualities you describe, being more in tune with men, and I can see the attraction. However it is a short step from that type of character to become fully male like, and wanting women as a ma…
