However, this is no perfect economically perfect world, and I'd sy that in most situations, both parents have to work just to stay alive.

That said, I think taking care of the kids is a much harder job than working in most offices.
I agree and it scares me a lot because one day i need to make a big decision in my life.


And believe me, looking at the wages for lower skills make me depressed.

US Senator from Pennsylvania (R) Ricky Santorum has published a book called "It Takes a Family: Conservatism and the Common Good."

THe word is, if he can survive one of the hottest Senatorial Races, he will run for President in 2008, and this is the introduction to his platform.

The book's central theme is the fostering of the traditional family, headed by a married man and a woman.

Within this, he says that many families should re-evaluate their budgets and realize that both parents do not need to work (the woman should stay home with the children).

QUOTE:

"What happened in America so that mothers and fathers who leave their children in the care of someone else - or worse yet, home alone after school between three and six in the afternoon - find themselves more affirmed by society? Here, we can thank the influence of radical feminism.....

"Sadly, the propaganda campaigned in the 1960's has taken root. The Radical feminists succeeded in undermining the traditional family and convincing woman that professional accomplishments are the key to happiness."

He also states that sending kids to schools also undermines the traditional family.



Come on people...come out and support this great American...he could be our next president!
I'll definitely be voting for this outstanding gentleman in 2008!

Maybe if he gets elected his second term he could take it a step further and start making it illegal for the poor, the unwed, and those who believe in public schools to have children.

It takes a (Christian fundamentalist reactionary) family, to raise a bigot.

So there are no bigots outside the Christian faith, deep?

Hey Mr. Ricky the Republican how about this as a solution. Let's fight a war with no end in sight and tear families apart for years while spouses are left at home to raise their family while divorce rates climb in the military. http://www.wral.com/news/4641346/detail.html
That really hits the nail on the head.
Also, I find his ideas regarding women a bit in contradiction to the war in Irag which is supposed to be liberating women as well as fighting terror. His ideas are simply out of date and just stupid!

Does anyone find that sometimes women's lib seems to merely be swapping one role for women, for another? For well, since forever really, we've fought and then won against men telling us we need to stay chained to the sink. The 60s saw an explosion of women rebelling, we all know the history, and now it seems to be that the message is not simply 'do what YOU choose'. It's 'Don't stay at home, you don't have to. Go out and work. You're allowed!' Well, last I checked, I had a problem with men telling me what to do. I dont want anyone telling me where I should be and what I should be doing. I certainly dont want any more for it to be a woman telling me I should be out working and smashing through that frustrating glass ceiling because I'm allowed. Women's lib can shove their permission up their arses. I am absoutely all for equality. I am absolutely all for women working. And if that means either not having children to do so, or fitting in children around work, then more power to them. I am all for women staying at home and not upgrading the car every year and taking a caravan holiday instead of flying somewhere if that is the preference. I've had jack of both sides telling everyone what the best is. Personally, I am for the stay at home parent and happy nuclear families. But only if it is what the family wants, if they can manage, which too many cant - infact most cannot. I'm happy for women to be making their own choices. It all seems to be people siding on one or the other. Keep them locked up at home, or make them into broken glass gurgling corporate pitbulls. Um, no. I dont support either side, thanks. Women should choose, and get support for whichever they choose.

The thing which really pisses me off royally is the equal pay bullshit. I dont know if it's the same overseas as here, but women still aren't getting paid the same as men and it makes my blood boil.

yes, it's the same in north america--women consistently earn less than men for doing the same jobs. not to mention the lack of pay for doing the housework, running around after the kids, taking care of elderly relatives, etc. etc.

great rant, anna.

:clap:

You plant a demon seed
You raise a flower of fire
See them burning bras
See the flames higher and higher



sorry

I am not sure how Santorum woo'ed his way in - I am fairly new to Pennsylvania. I do know he is a strong campaigner that holds firm in his views.

I DID live in Minnesota when former wreslter Jesse Ventura was elected governor (over a two OUTSTANDING party politicians). That is an election story for a different thread.
