    again shows a lack of understanding of how a marriage is supposed to work. we discuss major expenditures but my wife never has to ask my permission to spend money



    with court ordered alimony garnished from his wages if he doesn't want to pay it.



    yes you can.



    that's what alimony and life insurance is for.





    If those are your concerns, then I'd say you chose poorly when you picked a husband

    sounds to me like you assume all men are douchebags.
    1. I am not married
    2. I know how marriages are SUPPOSED to work, but I am a realist and I understand that there is a high divorce rate today.
    3. Women, housewives, and trophywives do happen to marry douchebags. I am not saying all men are douchebags, but men who get married and expect their wife to not work and just be trophies are douchebags. Golddigging women and wannabe trophywives are no better. Such marriages won't last, obviously, and women shouldn't look at men as if they are nothing but bank accounts.
    4. Before you tell me not steroetype, I am not saying that every rich husband and SAHM have this arrangement. I am simply criticizing your attitude in suggesting it's absolutely fine for women to not work and want a man to provide for them.

    If I have children and have a daughter, I'd at least want her to have a good education so she has something to fall back on in case her fairytale, rich working husband and SAHM arrangement doesn't work out.

    Do you understand what a non-sequitur is?
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Yes, and I didn't create one.

    At some point, we have to stop digging this hole. And Obama only knows the big government way, which is to keep digging with other people's shovels until we run out of shovels.

    A)

    I'm very much unlike you. I do not belong, nor do I pledge allegiance to any political party in this country, or any other for that matter.


    B)

    I pledge allegiance to the Flag of my Country, the Declaration of Independents upon which it was founded, and the resultant Constitution that binds it and holds it together, despite the attempts of many to separate it.

    C)

    The factoid that America did not usher into the world the concept of Slavery, did not make the Institution of American Slavery, any less immoral than it was. The fact that Slavery was abolished in the United States, makes its legacy no less impacting on the current American Psyche today. And, your post is a prime example of that sad, sorry, and awfully pitiful fact. Nor, did it make George Washington, a moral agent of honor, decency and integrity.

    Those are the facts - like them, or not.

    Personally, I think Obama did the honorable thing by declaring not only that professional Mothers deserve respect, but that the family is off limits.

    Everyone knows that deficit spending is unsustainable in the long run (except for Dick Cheney apparently). This has nothing to do with the fact that running a country is not the same as running a business, such as a private equity firm.

    Because that means Michelle Obama can't be criticized no matter what she says.

    Isn't it funny, how truth just loves to hang out in that location. Right smack in the middle - where it belongs. Where all Americans belong.
