    You libs really think that most people are only working to get Health Insurance? I don't.
    Nobody made that claim.

Thats all I have asked since the very beginning.

    SURELY you have read the report and are not just mindlessly parroting what others have said...right? Why is it that now FIVE of you can parrot the rhetoric but not provide the actual report (which is all I asked from the get go before you all got so chunky and angry)
    The second link in the post you quoted IS the report.

    The 1950s were a long time ago and a much better place.

    Most women didn't work and those who did were in a small selection of positions properly suited to them. They knew their place and they stayed in it.

    I never said any tv comedy show was reality.

    Most men knew their place as well.

    I totally agree that Men are as much at fault for failing to live up to their place as well.

    I've never felt the need to know my place. I'm not looking to argue on this; it's just a thought process I don't understand. People are different enough that having defined roles has to mean someone is going to miscast.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    We are defined by our culture.

    Perhaps, but to a limited degree. And we have multiple cultures. Is my culture my German side or my Irish side or my English side or my Seminole side? I'm sure there's more in there, but these can be demonstrated on my family tree. My wife loves to work on cars. I'm a great cook. I grew up in the projects. More blacks than whites. I tried to date a young Muslim girl in 75. Her dad calmly and politely explained differences in culture to me. I still didn't understand. I just wanted her to go to the movies with me. I suggest that we all mix our culture to some degree, some more than others. But for me, I've developed my own traditions, as well as mixing some of my wife's in with our new ones.

    But who really approaches life with: this is the man's role and this is the woman's role? Who really wants that? And why?
