    awesome, now the women can pay for and make me a sandwich
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    Nah- I don't buy it. We need men as much as they need us. We provide balance for each other, and it's Nature's way to always seek balance.

    Re: The End of Men

    I am glad that women are making progress, but the article in its entirely leaves out a few key pieces of information. One is that the U.S. is moving towards a service based economy, which means barriers to entry are mostly education and not physical ability. Men still occupy most of the positions in the physical labor force and the types of jobs that no one wants to do. The service industry created a culture of more cushy desk jobs and administrative work. Corporate offices are staffed largely by women, especially at the lower levels, while upper management are still mostly men.

    I want to see their source for the claim that most managers are now women because I find that hard to believe.

    Reminds me of an article in US News and Reports a few years ago. Claimed the only thing males led the country in was crime and playing video games. I had a lot of fun with that article in class. But the point is little is stopping men but themselves. If they shrink and become domestic goddesses, so be it.

    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.

    Well you'll find a lot of women making more money and not losing their jobs because they work for government, particularly teaching.
    You want to know what the new largest group of millionaires is coming from?

    Government school teachers.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Re: The End of Men

    Every so often, these silly feminist articles pop up in the news. There never will be an end to men. It's a feminist pipe dream, and quite childish at that. BTW, with all the hoopla about jobs shipped overseas, the US is still the biggest manufacturing country in the world. It's not China yet, for all you wishful lefties.

    We women are glad that you men continue to hold onto your fantasies. It makes our job so much easier when you don't see it coming.
