    No Josie, I'm saying that you don't, in reality, get the choice to have the good life. You are born into a circumstance with backgrounds in which you have no control over. Someone who is born into a rich family with caring and loving parents is statistically more likely to have a higher paying job than someone who is born into a family that only provides a life long emergency for that child.
    I'm coming to see that no matter what law we regulate, be it the stand your ground act, there is never an objective morally right answer to any morale question; in fact, since there are multiple objectively right answers to every moral question that leaves us with a lot of grey area and a lot of black area (not in the racial since).

    Me, I tend to falter to the side of humbleness as apposed to the side of greediness.
    Like someone mentioned Rosen herself a CEO of the Radio Industry.

    All people have to do with the big picture is take a look at NY NY, Chicago Illinois, and L.A. California.....all city and state governments led by the left and with Keynesian Economics to see some truths. Thats the 3 Largest cities in the Country and making up for over 1/4 th of the nations Debt and Economy. Over 75 yrs of ruling in majority, dividing people up, taxing everything, living with the highest costs in the Nation, and now looking to file bankruptcy anyway they can to get rid of their massive debts. Never paying off those debts and always spending money. Everyone else's but their own.

    Rosen still got a lick in with her apology after Obama chided her. It shouldn't be surprising tho. Wassermann Schultz was the DNC attack dog all last year and the year before. Always making the rounds on TV. It's a wonder the people she represents gets anything for their community with as much as she travels all around the country on their taxpaying dime.

    Re: Ann Romney Never Worked a Day In Her Life.

    Our conservative "friends" take exception for comments made about Ann Romney being a "stay-at-home mother"

    BUT

    when Michelle Obama attempts to focus public attention on the problem of childhood obesity in America, which of the GOP presidential candidates is first in line to heap "self-serving" criticism and ridicule on her initiatives - Mitt Romney!

    Conservatives heap criticism on Michelle Obama's campaign against childhood obesity
    February 27, 2011

    WASHINGTON -- Former first ladies Barbara and Laura Bush worked to end illiteracy. Nancy Reagan famously took on teenage drug use. Lady Bird Johnson planted flowers. But none of them have been seared for something as seemingly benign as calling for kids to eat more vegetables, as Michelle Obama has.

    Just about everyone will agree that the nation's children are getting fatter and that obesity is a serious health problem. But the first lady's push for healthier meals and more exercise, which marked its first anniversary this month, has provoked a backlash from the right, who complain that the only thing here that's supersized is Big Brother.

    ..... And in January, some conservatives even suggested that Obama was endangering people, blaming an increase in pedestrian deaths on the first lady's campaign by saying that Americans were putting themselves at risk by walking more.

    ..... Earlier this month, Mitt Romney, addressing the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, peppered his remarks with digs at the first lady and her husband.

    Ridiculing President Obama's purported move toward the political center, Romney joked that the president's rhetoric had shifted so radically that "he sounded like he was going to dig up the first lady's organic garden to put in a Bob's Big Boy," Romney said.

    Later, while equating Obama's economic policies to Marie Antoinette's purported line about the French peasantry -- "Let them eat cake" -- Romney corrected himself.

    "I'm sorry," he crowed. "Organic cake."

    Well, yes. That's life - sometimes it sucks. What is your solution to this so-called problem?

    How about Ms. Obama give him some ideas about money management. I'm sure she has a household budget to manage, yes? And she probably has to stay within that budget, yes?

    Or maybe being a stay-at-home Mom, her opinion isn't worth a hill of beans, like Ms Rosen said.

    My wife had 5 kids to raise and she worked full time 6 days a week mostly in salons and eventually owned a few and ran the business'

    So what do you propose that a city like Chicago does? Cut taxes on the rich and cut government spending? You would be leaving one of the poorest cities in our nation with nothing to live for...

    Wealth redistribution

    To give those who don't have the fair shot, a fairer shot. To say that life sucks is an understatement. To say that someone people have a terrible life and are a victim of their childhood is a correct statement, which would mean we should help these people out.

    I think you might need to change your lean.
