    Does the same apply to working fathers? Fathers have to balance work and family commitments as well, why do you leave them out?
    Why do I leave fathers out? Because this entire thread has been about stay at home mothers.

    And sure, it applies to fathers too. Being a working father is harder than being a stay at home father.

    If you are thinking of a single mother, with little or no education struggling to support her kid(s), I'll agree with you. But dual income families....not.
    I'm thinking the average stay at home mother vs. the average working mother. One works one "job" and the other works two.

    That's the problem with America today. You classify something that real Human Beings went through as being "anachronistic," as opposed being the causality for the social disaster we are witnessing today. You have a hard time making the connection between Causation and the Effect of Causation. People who think this way (or, fail to think) seem to ignore the universal rules of cause and effect.

    When I asked, how did that work out for George Washington, you took the question literally. That tells me (in no uncertain terms) that drawing the logical nexus between the causality of such immoral judgements, and the current set of social debacles this nation faces today with respect to race relations, is completely lost on you.

    I feel sorry, for those who can't see the clear connection between several hundred years of upholding such an immoral institution such as American Slavery, and the current sad state of affairs in this country today - which can be seen in all kinds of ways throughout our society. It's as if, some people are completely unable to comprehend the affects of their own history. Let alone, know anything about how to correct what still runs pervasively and destructively throughout this country.

    The fact that other nations did it, is no excuse - especially for a country that was supposed to have been founded on the principle that "all men are created equal," - as it simultaneously labeled a segment of its population, 3/5ths Human. The problem is not my recognition of these facts. The problem is the continual failure of too many in our society to muster the moral decency that allows them to recognize the absolute causal connection from the days of both Washington and Jefferson, to the present.

    Of course, when you've never had ancestors who lived through American Slavery, and when you never had ancestors who died because of American Slavery, and when you never had relatives (alive) who lived through Jim Crow, or who died as a direct result of trying to defeat Jim Crow; then you don't have the slightest clue about the things I speak about.

    I bought an after-market prom dress from a resale store for $45.00 - no one had a clue it was reused, not a wedding dress and cheap as hell.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    For many people, $2,000 for a wedding dress is completely beyond their means. The Michelle Obama dress we're talking about was a sundress. A sundress for $2,000? Good gravy.
