Can someone tell Michele Obama to STFU with her I feel like a single mom, b.s. If she were a single mom, she'd also be working and providing for herself and her children.

Barack goes out and makes all the money to provide every god damn thing it takes for their family to live and survive and she's out their minimizing this contribution and wallowing in self pity.

Hey Squishy!
I was just watching my security cameras and a spider walked on the camera lens. Made me think of Dickie.

Ive heard many married moms say it, not just her, when their husband's job has them away from home/kids for a long period of time. One friend's husband wants another kid and she said "Nope, not as long as I feel like a single mom to the one we already have."

ARGH. coworker from another office location is in today and she fucking sat down at MY COMPUTER instead of firing up one next to mine (person on vcation).

I have to cover the front desk until 10. AT that poine, move your ass.

I cannot tell you how much I hate when someone sits down at my computer. It's very rare. She already knows I"m pissed at her and she's kissing ass a bit.

ANd "contributing everything"? Um, no, money is not enough. It's about parenting time. HOwever, given that she knew what they were in for when he ran for office,that alone is what makes me want her to not complain. It's not like he took a cushy job and then it became very time consuming.

Tom Cruise is the same age now that Wilford Brimley was when he filmed Cocoon.

And Brian Dennehy was actually older than Wilford Brimley in that movie. Make up artists had to make him appear younger.

I have said "I have a lot of respect for single parents" after my husband has worked several OT days in a row or gone on a trip. There are definitely times when I feel that I do the majority of the child raising, but it is not a competition and I know that there is someone else who has as much stake in their well-being as I do and he will give them his time and effort as scheduling permits.

It's about working as a team. I can't imagine doing this without my partner. I am in awe of people who are single parents involuntarily and make it work. For married people to compare their situations to that of single parents is disrespectful, IMO.

Um, Brian Dennehy is 4 years younger than Wilford Brimley.

You know who died yesterday? Remember the shrink, Sidney, an occasional character on MASH? He died. 95 years old.

Rest in piece, Sidney. You were one of the best things about MASH.

I got that info from movie notes when I saw it on AMC. Might have to do some fact-checking. If you're right, then they were wrong.

That's cause they are unappreciative and have a martyr complex.

You can't survive without food, shelter, clothing. It takes money for these things. The guy provides her and their children with a lifestyle 99.99 percent of people on this planet do not enjoy and she's out b1tching about how she has it so tough and minimizes any contribution he makes to their family. I think that's wrong. I can't stand when women do that. It's like some of them have this need to justify how important they are ... while at the same time minimizing and showing a complete lack of appreciation for their spouse and his contributions.
