    Well, you do know how the left likes to avoid bad news and anything that shows their failures.


    Pavlich Destroys the Left's "Female Empowerment" Movement at D.C. Conference.....


    Myth number one is that the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) is beneficial for women. “According to the Manhattan Institute, Obamacare is increasing women’s rates by 62 percent nationally, and depending on the state, some women could see their premiums triple. In addition, millions of women have received letters stating their insurance plans are being canceled because they do not comply with the Affordable Care Act.”

    Health care aside, Pavlich noted that Barack Obama has repeatedly used women to get himself and other Democrats re-elected, though he hasn’t done much to get women back to work. “There are nearly a million fewer women in the work force today than when President Obama took office in 2009. Joblessness for women under his watch has jumped 15.5 percent according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.”.....snip~

Not everyone wants the government to start indoctrinating children in political ideology starting in pre-school, it seems, no matter where they live.
    It seems that you either do not really know or understand the Romania of those days, thus misrepresenting it here.

    Heya Mac. Some more on this. First he gave his speech in RI and then he used it for his Weekly Address to the Nation.




    Hail Mary: Obama to Pull Out War on Women Rhetoric in Last Ditch Effort Before The Midterms.....

    The president’s diminished standing with women is quickly becoming one of the biggest liabilities facing Democrats as they struggle to hang onto the Senate majority.

    In battleground states across the country, Obama is underwater with female voters — especially women unaffiliated with a political party — and it’s making it harder for Democrats to take advantage of the gender gap, according to public polling and Democratic strategists.

    Further, an Associated Press poll released last week shows more women want to vote for Republicans, not Democrats on Tuesday. Women have moved in the GOP's direction since September. In last month's AP-GfK poll, 47 percent of female likely voters said they favored a Democratic-controlled Congress while 40 percent wanted the Republicans to capture control. In the new poll, the two parties are about even among women, 44 percent.....snip~

    Now, what I would hope what he meant to say was something like "...that's not a choice we want Americans TO HAVE to make...", that's simply not what he actually said.
    Fits right in with his "I don't want them punished with a baby" line.

    Are you saying that's not the study's conclusion?
    I did misspeak in my original post on the subject, but no. The study found that more time in daycare leads to more aggressive, disobedient and defiant behavior. This wasn't even the first study to determine the same:

    A study from 2002:
    New Study on Daycare and Aggression in Childhood - CBS News
    In the study, 17% of children who spent more than 30 hours a week in daycare had behavior problems when they got to kindergarten. The findings are alarming, considering the government numbers that show nearly one out of three preschoolers go to some type of childcare facility while their parents are at work.
    "We find clearly, indisputably, and unambiguously that . . . the more time children spend in care, the more likely they are to be aggressive and disobedient," says Jay Belsky, the study's author.
    The more recent study:
    New study says behavioural problems in children linked to time in childcare centres* | Daily Mail Online
    A new study has revealed that children placed in childcare centres are more likely to develop hyperactive and aggressive behaviours than those who spend time in home care
    Their results, which were based on surveys filled out by parents and teachers, found the length of time spent in childcare centres was directly linked to increases in problem behaviours by the age of four or five.

    Interestingly, children who spent more time in family day care or under the care of nannies did not show increased signs of problem behaviours.
    Apparently the most recent study found decrease in depression and anxiety for those in child care - though.

    Interesting. Thanks for the links Buck. Seems that idealized life portrayed in 'Leave It to Beaver' had it right after all.

    As a responsible society, so concerned about the kids and all, shouldn't we be looking for ways to have all our moms be stay at home?
    Disinformation campaign? The Russian collusion meme pushed by the 'news' media, behaving as a political propaganda organ, hell bent to destroy a legitimately elected president to implement his agenda per the votes of the same electorate. Reference The Big Lie Reference Goebbels

    We purposely do that in our home.. I work days, my wife works part time, evenings and weekends (grocery store).... We do the hand off in between. My wife could make more money by being full time and working more.. . but, in our opinion.. The kids are more important and we are lucky enough to be able to make it work.

    But that in itself is a problem. They are even unwilling to recognize any experience that women do gain by staying home with their children, especially in jobs where the pay is based on experience but experience at home could easily transfer if they would actually look at it.
