In an interview on National Public Radio (NPR), House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said her new agenda for women will give mothers access to day care so they can “earn without carrying the burden of child care.” During the interview, aired on Weekend Edition Sunday, Pelosi spoke about her newly announced agenda, which is on her website, and is titled, “When Women Succeed, America Succeeds: An Economic Agenda for Women and Families,” a plan that includes universal pre-school and access to day care for working women, and an increase in the minimum wage.
Comments: So they can earn ... reminds me of "Arbeit macht frei."
#3: Sounds? It is, brah. Think of the way Weiner and the rest of these slime act. Nobody cares. You think people piped up at what Goering did? Beria? Molotov? They ran with impunity because they didn´t have to worry about public opinion, thanks to THE MEDIA.
"You´ve come a long way baby" was the slogan in the 70´s. I remember going to gatherings where "professional" women were in attendance. They would ask "what do you do?" and I would say I was a housewife and mother.."yes, but what do you DO"? I would respond "I am a household engineer". I loved my job, which was raising my children and running an efficient, loving household. If mothers consider their children a burden, don´t have any. If you do, raise them yourselves.
Yeah...they don´t want you to raise your own children with your values. They don´t want you to counter their indoctrination programs. They don´t want well adjusted children who have parents to come home to after school. They want state raised robots for their socialist "utopia" who are easily controlled and manipulated by the totalitarian tyrants in charge.
Thank goodness my mother was "burdened" with raising me. I had a wonderful, highly intelligent mother who I was privileged to spend time with and learn about the world from. I wouldn´t be the person I am today if it wasn´t for my "burdened" mother.
My Lord. What is wrong with this woman??? The BURDEN of child care? Being able to stay home and take care of my child were some of my best years. I would not trade those memories for all the botox in nancy´s face. Her attitude about women, mother´s, children explains a lot about her perspective on abortion. Children are a punishment and you are better off working two part time jobs for the government than actually taking care of them. So just turn the little darlings over to us for indoctrination. New entitlement programs hand over fist paid for by other people´s money. If they would stop over taxing our husbands so we could stay home if we wanted to there might be a lot more happy homes. If you shined a light in one of pelosi´s ears I am sure it would go right through to the other side. She has absolutely no respect for women who actually think taking care of their own families is an important job. She is a poor excuse for a woman.
Hillary said it takes a village. Nancy says that children are a burden. These women are leading us down the Marxist path to total government control over our children and our lives. They are dangerous and should never be elected to office again.
When I was a stay at home mom I had two answers to that "DoYou Work?" question...1. Yes, I have the most important job in the world - I´m raising the next generation. 2. Yes, I´m employed by a seven ( eight, nine, ten, etc ) year old. It shut the questioner right up.
´´Burden?!!´´ Pelosi advocates having her dem-Big Government-driven agenda decide everything for everyone, thus literally living your life for you, making your personal choices, ´´cradle to the grave?!!´´
The media has lampooned fathers for decades, libs questioning, ´who need a dad,?!´ Next came 0bama who didn´t want his daughters burdened with an unwanted baby and now Pelosi chimes in with, basically, ´who needs a mom?!´ ...What´s left in the dem pols´ agenda for all of civilization´s most basic human structure: families?!!
Why do dem pols keep attacking & fracturing American families with their lefty/lib/statist policies, especially when the history of the past 40 years of such policies have demonstrably resulted in social disasters? mmm mmm mmm
I´ll bet the "burden of child care" bit resonates with her five (5) children. How many grandchildren would she have now? I suppose they´re a burden only if the nannies are NOT getting stiffed on their with-holding and social security!
Please pardon the second post. . . My husband and I weighed the options, over 44 yrs ago, and decided that my staying home & raising our children was the better choice. I had tried working w/one child in daycare, but it wasn´t cost-effective. It was certainly emotionally draining, leaving my child every morning then picking him up all fussy. If people had family to help, it might be different. We did not. Now with "baby mamas" & "baby daddys" where is the familial support? So the Big Daddy Government steps in? I´m grateful that I was able to stay home, but it was mostly because my husband & I put all of our dreams for the future into our children. The bigger house and nicer car were put on hold until we had saved enough to afford them.
"The burden of child care" could be used by the GOP as further proof, like their Che t-shirts and Michael Moore movies, that the Democrats are as anti-life and anti-happiness as any group of morons who ever walked the earth. But the GOP won´t do that - the GOP needs to keep up the facade of Democrat "good intentions" in order to make deals with them: the only thing the GOP ever does, nowadays.
Part D of the New No Child Left Behind Act that has to be passed before we know what´s in it. What about Dad´s Ms. Pelosi? Baby daddy needs freedom too. The equal protection clause has to be applied, in all fairness dear.
A woman I know had three children in seven years. At one time, all three were in paid day care: the oldest one in the after-school half-day program, the next one in pre-school/day care, and the third, an infant, began day care at the age of eight weeks, going to the "baby room." The mother carefully researched the day care facility, which was a private center for which she paid full price. She dropped in during the day to check that her kids were being well cared for.
Her day care bill for each year, for several years, exceeded $27,000. That was about 10 years ago.
She did it so she would not lose her place in a tough professional field. That was her choice, but I shouldn´t be expected to help her pay for it.
It´s settled, then: Christian conservatives use religion as a justification for their discriminatory behavior, and Americans will only enjoy true religious freedom when their so-called "religious liberty" claims are defeated. That was the consensus Thursday at a panel discussion sponsored by the Center for American Progress in Washington. "People [are] using the term ´liberty´ when they really mean ´my liberty, your slavery,´" the Rev. Dr. C. Welton Gaddy, president of the Interfaith Alliance, said during the discussion. He made the statement while arguing that liberals´ view of religious liberty springs from a true, originalist reading of the Constitution that was
It was a catchy political pitch and a chance to calm nerves about his dramatic and complicated plan to bring historic change to America’s health insurance system. "If you like your health care plan, you can keep it," President Barack Obama said -- many times -- of his landmark new law. But the promise was impossible to keep. So this fall, as cancellation letters were going out to approximately 4 million Americans, the public realized Obama’s breezy assurances were wrong. Boiling down the complicated health care law to a soundbite proved treacherous, even for its promoter-in-chief. Obama and his team
BRUSSELS — Belgium´s Senate has strongly supported legislation that would extend the country´s euthanasia law to children under certain conditions. Senators on Thursday voted 50-17 in favor of the proposed law. If adopted, it will decriminalize euthanasia for children, if they are in great pain, suffer from a terminal condition and are expected to die soon. The children would have to submit a written request to be euthanized, and be aware of what their request meant. No age limit would be set, but the children would have "to possess the capacity of discernment." Their parents or legal representatives also would
On December 10th, 76-year old Leon Winder found a burglar hiding in his closet. He opened fire and later told reporters, "I was firing on him and he couldn´t say nothing." According to WVEC of Norfolk, Virginia, Winder called 911 after hearing strange noises in his home. When Winder went into a barbershop attached to his house he found a coat on the floor. As he bent down to pick it up, he saw 37-year old John Buck Fields hiding in the closet and shot at him twice. Said Winder, "He didn´t say nothing. I was firing on him and he couldn't say nothing." The wounded burglar fled the house and was later captured by police.
A book advising newly-wed women on how to be "submissive" has become a publishing phenomenon in Spain while outraging feminists who have called for it to be banned. The polemic book by married Italian author Costanza Miriano titled ´Cásate y sé sumisa – Get Married and Be Submissive – was published by the Catholic Arbishopric of the southern city of Granada in November and soared up the bestseller list. The book, which was a bestseller in Italy, preaches a message of "loyal obedience, generosity and submission" on the part of the new wife and offers nuggets of advice for the newly-wed on how to please one's husband.
Like Senate Majority Leader Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV), Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX), the GOP primary challenger to Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX), has exempted his staff from Obamacare. In late October, the Washington Times reported that Stockman “said his staff unanimously voted to reject Obamacare enrollment, saying the law subsidizes abortion and is a ‘Ponzi scheme’ that forces young people to pay more for health care.” “Mr. Stockman´s spokesman, Donny Ferguson, said the staff will be designated as ‘not official’ and keep the federal plan,” the Times reported before quoting Ferguson: “I hope Obama will appreciate us doing our part to
WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama´s top health official is asking for an investigation into the administration´s botched rollout of HealthCare.gov. The website was supposed to have been the online portal to insurance coverage under the new health care law, but technical problems turned it into a frustrating bottleneck for millions of consumers. It´s working better now after two months of repairs. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said in a blog post early Wednesday that she is asking the department´s inspector general to investigate the contracting process, management and performance and payment issues that may have contributed to
Once there was a boy so meek and modest, he was awarded a Most Humble badge. The next day, It was taken away because he wore it. Here endeth the lesson. How do you practice humility from the most exalted throne on earth? Rarely has a new player on the world stage captured so much attention so quickly—young and old, faithful and cynical—as has Pope Francis. In his nine months in office, he has placed himself at the very center of the central conversations of our time: about wealth and poverty, fairness and justice, transparency, modernity, globalization, the role of
A village in Madagascar has been hit by a deadly outbreak of the bubonic plague, medical experts on the island have confirmed. Test were carried out after at least 20 people in the village, near the north-western town of Mandritsara, were reported to have died last week. The International Committee of the Red Cross warned in October that Madagascar was at risk of a plague epidemic. The disease is transmitted to humans via fleas, usually from rats. Bubonic plague, known as the Black Death when it killed an estimated 25 million people in Europe during the Middle Ages, is now
Addressing a Government Accountability Institute report that found that President Barack Obama has not had a single one-on-one meeting with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius since Obamacare passed over three years ago, a former speechwriter for President George W. Bush said that if Obama and Sebelius met as regularly as they claimed, the White House would have the records to prove it. Appearing on Fox News´s The Kelly File on Monday, Marc Thiessen, a former speechwriter for President George W. Bush and a fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, said that "every single meeting the president has" is
JOHANNESBURG — World leaders and joyous, singing South Africans honored Nelson Mandela on Tuesday at a Soweto soccer stadium that was two-thirds full amid cold, driving rain. The crowds booed South African President Jacob Zuma, who was to give the keynote address at the service, which started an hour late. Many South Africans are unhappy with Zuma because of state corruption scandals, though his ruling African National Congress, once led by Mandela, remains the front-runner ahead of elections next year. (Snip) Former President Jimmy Carter, who was at the memorial, called the handshake “significant.”
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
New York — The anchor who might beat Bill O’Reilly gets her eyelash extensions applied one at a time, with tweezers and dabs of glue, about 90 minutes before showtime, right after a motorized gun sprays foundation over her face, neck, shoulders, collarbone and sternum, wiping out a galaxy of light freckles that spreads across her — Let me stop you right there. Photos of the day Uruguay legalizes marijuana, Kiev police pull back from protesters, aging U.S. prison population and more. Tuesday´s Photos of the day Would you write this way about a man? About O’Reilly himself? At least that’s what Megyn Kelly might ask at
In August 2013 I became very sick with what I thought was a cold. After a few days I lost vision in my left eye and I checked into the hospital. I soon found out that what I thought was a summer cold was actually Strep bacteria poisoning my blood stream. The bacteria blinded my left eye, ate a hole through my heart, caused five strokes on both sides of my brain and forced the removal of my prosthetic left knee. Dr. Lee was the surgeon assigned to perform open heart surgery. What was originally scheduled to last four hours ended
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
The health director who approved the release of President Obama’s birth certificate has died in a plane crash, Hawaiian officials said Thursday. Loretta Fuddy died after the Cessna Grand Caravan aircraft she was travelling on went down shortly after leaving Kalaupapa Airport at around 3:15 p.m. local time (10:15 a.m. ET) on Wednesday. The other eight people on board were rescued, Richard Schuman, president of Makani Kai Air, told NBC News early Thursday, adding that that there was no indication as to why the plane had crashed. Fuddy hit the headlines two years ago when she approved a waiver request allowing Obama to
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
Views of the tea party are at all-time lows in a new poll, as primary challenges to establishment Republicans continue to heat up Washington. Just 30 percent of Americans view the tea party favorably in a new Gallup poll released Wednesday, the movement’s lowest point since Gallup began polling about it during its rise in 2010. Also in a first, a majority of Americans had an unfavorable view of the tea party, at 51 percent. Similar numbers of respondents described themselves as proponents or opponents of the tea party: Twenty-two percent identified themselves as tea party supporters, while 24 percent said they
Looks like this president can’t get away with flirting in front of his wife… It appears that first lady Michelle Obama was none too pleased with the way that President Barack Obama was acting toward Denmark Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt during a ceremony honoring Nelson Mandela, and before too long, they switched seats. This lmao! Michelle Obama vs Prime Minister of Denmark at Mandela´s ceremony. pic.twitter.com/Rq4uF9fTaZ — Stun (@TheBlogPirate) December 10, 2013
The sign language interpreter at Nelson Mandela´s memorial yesterday "made up his own signs," according to South Africa´s deaf federation. "He´s a complete fraud," Cara Loening, director of Sign Language Education and Development in Cape Town, said according to ITV News. "He wasn´t even doing anything, There was not one sign there. Nothing. He was literally flapping his arms around." Delphin Hlungwane, an official South African sign language interpreter at DeafSA, told Reuters:
THE Internet has been abuzz over the spectacle of President Obama and the prime ministers of Britain and Denmark snapping a photo of themselves — a “selfie,” to use the mot du jour — with a smartphone at the memorial service for Nelson Mandela in South Africa on Tuesday. Leaving aside whether it was appropriate, the moment captured the democratization of image making that is a hallmark of our gadget-filled, technologically rich era. Manifestly undemocratic, in contrast, is the way Mr. Obama’s administration — in hypocritical defiance of the principles of openness and transparency he campaigned on — has systematically tried
If you go down on the ice today you´re sure of a big surprise - a rare glimpse of 20 polar bears gorging on a bloody midnight feast. These photographs show a rare cluster of males, females and cubs all dining out on the remains of a whale carcass. They spent a night and a day stripping every last morsel from the mammoth sea creature. Usually Polar bears are solitary and would never tolerate being so close to each other. But with food in plentiful supply and bellies dragging on the floor they seem too lethargic to fight.Wildlife photographer Michal
