Hilary Rosen's 'stay at home' mum jibe has led to recognition that all mothers are entitled to welfare for their work - a worthy US import For 40 years some of us have been campaigning to convince governments that carers, beginning with mothers, are marginal neither to the economy nor to political life.

Yep, all better than a marxist maggot. Should have known what he was from his association with Bill Ayers and Dorn, and the fact he would salute the flag because he didn't want to offend anybody.

Stay-at-home moms who have to carefully manage the family budget and sacrifice so they can afford to stay at home have no more in common with Ann Romney than they do the "Real Houswives of Orange County."

Ha ha ha. The spinmeister as usual. Hate to break your heart ... neither you nor the individuals calling the shots in the Republican party today are patriots. In my opinion, you are the self-serving ideologues who would bring this country to its knees rather than compromise on what is best for our nation as a whole.

Yes you are probably right, I doubt Ann lays around like a liber and watches Oprah and Springer.

To get the real unemployment rate that the press is suppressing you google U6 unemployment numbers. You will find actual unemployment is 14.5%.

Anaemic jobs data hit Obama launch; Official campaign starts under shadow...Obama's campaign started January 21, 2009.

Labor Force Participation Lowest Since 1981...

567,000 of those jobs lost were women. Obama's real war on women is not over just which pill they take.

Whenever you can not offer a semi-intelligent answer to a post, you spam. Hmmm. That tells a lot more than you'd be willing to admit, I'm sure.

Your post to me was an attack, meaningless and of minimal value. Why not post something of value to our readers.

MSM Reports U3 Unemployment Rate of 8.6%, Ignores U6 Unemployment ...
www.conservativedailynews.com/2011/12/msm-rep... Measures of Unemployment. From Wikipedia, we see that the US Bureau of Labor Statistics has six different ways to measure unemployment, named U1 through U6.

Oh I get it. Your territory & I wandered into it. Perfectly clear now. Let me help you: All TOPIX friends ... Only the Jimbo gets to attack; only the Jimbo gets to post meaningless words; only the Jimbo gets to post things with minimal value. See that. Topix friends stick together.:)
