Are people without kids happier?
New studies offer mixed picture

CNN, by Kelly Wallace

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 1/14/2014 9:13:57 PM

When it comes to who is happier -- parents or child-free people -- most of the research up until now has concluded that it is the childless who are more satisfied with their overall lives. As a married mom of two, I always find myself reacting a bit defensively to that research. "I´m happy," I say to myself. I may be stressed, sleep-deprived and sorely in need of "me" time, but I am very satisfied with my life. Isn´t it possible that I could be just as happy as someone without kids -- even if they have more time to sleep and

That´s because they have no idea on what joy they are missing.

As with # 1, my girls give me more strength and joy than anything else in the world.

So true when you get old and we all do you will be sorry you did not have kids.
I see old people all alone and it is sad.
Sure kids could make your life worse but that
is not how it is most of the time.
No kids you have more money but no amount of
money could replace my kids.

At present, childless couples might rejoice that they leave this world not having to worry about the children they have raised, nurtured and loved to the evils of what this country has created in its present fascist state. However, growing old with no children and family around makes for a lonely existence. The lady or the tiger?

My son is everything. He is the only person for whom I would die. All I ever wanted in life was to be a mom and it is an honor. Period. But I´ve always felt if you don´t want kids, do the world a favor and don´t. We don´t need any more unloved, neglected kids.

Without children, and the hope for, and then the love of, grandchildren, life would be very dull indeed.

It´s wonderful to be part of a loving couple--but eventually, one is left alone.

Another propaganda effort from the social-controllers to portray the "breeders" in a negative light and praise those who are "wise" enough to live for themselves.

Any society that does not support those who raise the next generation is doomed to destruction.

I have had many titles and positions in my life, but they all pale when compared to being a husband and a dad.
Far and away, hearing "Hey Dad" is the best a man could hope to hear. The very best job I ever had.

Regarding the couples that remain childless by choice, thank you for sparing your potential offspring of having to grow up in a home solely focused on the husband and wife. If your world is based on your happiness and satisfaction as a couple, the world is much better off for your choice. Hopefully your choice to remain childless was not marred by one or more decisions to kill your babies in the womb.

Think about the childless couples you know as they reach their 50s and 60s and older. Those of us who have the blessing of children have much fuller and meaningful lives. Yeah most of us give up a lot, but it is always things that have no meaning after all. No regrets. Thoroughly pleased.

Land Management: A Chinese solar farm that fries birds is OK, as is redrawing tortoise habitat boundaries to benefit political donors. But an American rancher grazing his cattle brings feds with sniper rifles. It appears Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy has, at least temporarily, wonhis "range war" with the paramilitary wing of the Bureau of Land Management. Fearing another Waco, BLM has announced it will no longer enforce a court order and stop stealing Bundy´s cows, called "trespass cattle" by the feds, accused of grazing free on part of the 84% of Nevada that is federal property.

Since taking office in 2009, President Barack Obama has formally proposed a total of 442 tax increases, according to an Americans for Tax Reform analysis of Obama administration budgets for fiscal years 2010 through 2015. The 442 total proposed tax increases does not include the 20 tax increases Obama signed into law as part of Obamacare. "History tells us what Obama was able to do. This list reminds us of what Obama wanted to do," said Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform. The number of proposed tax increases per year is as follows: •79 tax increases for FY 2010 •52 tax increases for

GOP Mutiny Could Unseat
Boehner and McConnell as Party Leaders

It increasingly looks as if the Republicans will regain control of Congress this fall, with the GOP narrowly winning back a majority in the Senate and the House GOP either retaining or slightly building on its majority. But will the two top Republican leaders – House Speaker John Boehner and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell -- be around to enjoy the spoils of victory? Both Boehner of Ohio and McConnell of Kentucky are crafty and highly resilient veterans who would be difficult for their opponents to bring down even under the best of circumstances. Yet McConnell is facing arguably one

RUSH: You know, moving on to something serious here. In recent days, in the recent past, we´ve talked here about the Millennials, people that are basically 21-34. One of the things I am hearing or fear has happened is that, as Obama continues to break promises and Obama continues to wreak havoc on the economy and basically destroy the foundations of the American dream -- which is what he´s doing -- that young people who, by virtue of their age, have no living experience with conservative victory. You and I do.

Reno, Nev. -- Senate majority leader Harry Reid hasn´t been very vocal about the cattle battle showdown in recent days, but says "it´s not over." Reid tells News4´s Samantha Boatman his take on the so-called cattle battle in southern Las Vegas. "Well, it´s not over. We can´t have an American people that violate the law and then just walk away from it. So it´s not over," Reid said. Senator Reid had just wrapped up a speech and question and answer session with students at UNR.

Russia Tests Multi-Warhead ICBM
Washington Free Beacon (D.C.), by Bill Gertz    Original Article

Russia’s military carried out a flight test of a new multi-warhead intercontinental ballistic missile on Monday amid growing tensions with the United States over the crisis in Ukraine. The SS-27 Mod 2 road-mobile ICBM was launched around 2:40 a.m. EST from Russia’s Plesetsk launch facility, located about 500 miles north of Moscow. “The main purpose of the launch is to validate the reliability of a batch of this class of missiles made at the Votkinsk Plant,” Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Yegorov told state-run Interfax-AVN. An unspecified number of simulated nuclear warheads landed at an impact range on the Kura test range on the

The Guardian and the Washington Post have been awarded the highest accolade in US journalism, winning the Pulitzer prize for public service for their groundbreaking articles on the National Security Agency’s surveillance activities based on the leaks of Edward Snowden. The award, announced in New York on Monday, comes 10 months after the Guardian published the first report based on the leaks from Snowden, revealing the agency’s bulk collection of US citizens’ phone records. In the series of articles that ensued, teams of journalists at the Guardian and the Washington Post published the most substantial disclosures of US government secrets since the

Climate change experts will today set out new plans for tackling global warming in the event that countries cannot reduce their carbon emissions in time. Dubbed ‘Plan B’ the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has looked at the possibility of sucking carbon dioxide out of the air and reflecting sunlight into space. The document is important because it will be used as scientific guidance for governments as they negotiate a new global climate pact, set to be adopted in 2015 However some environmental activists watching the talks in Berlin believe geoengineering should not be attempted. They worry that such technologies would be ineffective,

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

Six months ago, in the midst of what the New York Times then termed ObamaCare´s "troubled rollout," Kathleen Sebelius defied calls for her to resign as secretary of health and human services. Last week she announced that she will step down, "ending a stormy five-year tenure marred by the disastrous rollout," as the Times now calls it. Maybe by this October we´ll be up to "catastrophic" or "calamitous." Last October this column argued that there was no reason for Sebelius to go.

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM.

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings.

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.
