    Give a man a fish and he can eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he can sit in a boat, drinking beer all day while you fool around with his Woman.

    He didn't reference a study. What he said was "men are more motivated by money than women are".

    This is what he said.

    "Men, by and large, make more because of some of the things they do," he said. "Their jobs are, by and large, riskier. They don’t mind working nights and weekends. They don’t mind working overtime or outdoors."

    Men being more motivated by money doesn't broadly mean "men are more motivated".

    So it is just an opinion then. Anyone cares to take this seriously?

    Not me. And I live in the state.

    It's just an opinion. He thinks men are more motivated by money than women are. That's pretty benign as far as I'm concerned.

    Men don't mind working night's and weekends? Overtime? But Women do.

    I don't ever work weekends or nights, and I rarely work more than I have to. The extra money isn't as important to me as my free time. My husband very often does. He would rather make more money.

    So in my case, as a citizen of the state he lives in, it's true. Is it true in every case? Not at all. But all he did was give his opinion, and it was hardly a terrible comment he made in the grand scheme of terrible things lawmakers say.
