Sure, you Kasich supporters will learn to love being poor. I promise. Which is exactly what everyone of you who voted for him deserves to try. Enjoy!

I agree & if you think about being a housewife/ stay-at-home mom is a form of welfare.

So I suppose that all children are also on a form of welfare because mom and/or dad provides for them?

Whatever- at least I am sure a nanny won't be smothering my baby because she won't stop crying. My job, raising my children, is the most important, fun and rewarding job out there!

Congratulations. You are now a Dispatch right wing op ed columnist.
I'm happy someone finally noticed all the hard work and ignorant comments I have posted. 3-5 posts a day is a tough pace to keep up. As of the right wing thing, sure, that will be my calling card.

Don't be stupid. Of course parent taking care of their children is NOT welfare. How did you get that from my comment? Wow...
This is 2011 not the 1950's there is no reason for a woman to be dependent on a man. It's unfair to the man to expect him to take on all the financial responsibility, period. There is no reason a woman can't work at least part time to help with the bills.

True, but it's unfair to put all the financial responsibility on your husband.

My wife stays at home. I make a lot of money. I don't want some trash raising my children. I want my wife there. Her job is an important one. How dare you belittle what she does! Your attitude is what is wrong with the the youth today. My mother stayed at home and raised us, it is important for parents to raise their own children. Not child care, day care and nannies.

I once read a book on male liberation that included something along the lines of:

Most women have three options concerning work:
1) Work full time
2) Work part time to spend more time with her children
3) Marry a man with sufficient income to allow her to stay home full time with her kids

Men have three options concerning work:
1) Work
2) Work
3) Work

Possessing a uterus confers a lot more freedom than women like to admit.

Not if you're NOT living off someone else.

Americans lining up for $8.00 hr jobs at Pei Wei after Sherrif Joe Arpaio arrested their illegal workers.



This is a case study of what happens when you remove illegal aliens from their jobs.

First, Pei Wei had to close its doors because it didn't have enough legal workers left.

Second, Pei Wei immediately started recruiting workers from among legal residents.

Finally, and triumphantly, as this newscast video so well shows, unemployed Americans created long lines to take the jobs.

Well, this video shows all kinds of people willing to wash dishes for $8 an hour. You'll see Latino Americans say they are willing to do so. You'll see White Americans willing to do so. Young. Middle aged. One with a masters degree.

"I'm desperate," a young woman says. A middle-aged woman says if she were younger she would look for yard work but is happy to wash dishes. "A job is a job," says Vince Flores, who refuses to be embarrassed about wanting a job that the elites of America sneer at.

Not stupidity, just inferencial thinking.

Yes it is 2011. Women do have the option of working as well as the option of staying home. Some families can afford for the wife to stay home with the children and prefer it. I would not call it unfair for the man if both the husband and wife agree that would be the best situation. If she says that she is going to just watch tv and eat bon-bons all day and the family is struggling financially, then it is not fair.

Even though it is 2011, in some cases (not all), it is adavantageous for the wife to stay home. Just saying.

Husbandfare?

Some men and women decide for themselves that one of them staying home is beneficial for the entire family. You can hardly compare that to welfare.

Are you a woman hater?

My wife stays at home with our 3 beautiful children. If you ask me, she has the toughest job of all. She doesn't get to come home at 6pm, she is on the 'clock' 24-7. she doesn't complain. When she had the flu, I stayed at home a couple of days to help out. Let me tell you what, I couldn't wait to get back to work! Stay at home moms are very special people. I appreciate what my wife does for our family. You couldn't put a price tag on what she does. For the people claiming these moms are on husband fare, it is a very unfair thing to say.

I am lucky enough to stay at home with my two little boys. My husband and I made the decision together when I was pregnant with our first. We had to make sacrifices, that's for sure, but the rewards more than outweigh the negatives.

I actually feel bad for working moms. They work full-time, then have to come home tired, cook dinner, clean house, run kids around etc. I admire them as well! I think ALL moms are doing he best they can! I don't think it's nice or right to put down moms who choose to stay at home, or moms who choose to work. Every situation is different, and no oe should be judging.
