    I happen to be working on things. DP is what I do between spates.

    EDIT: None of your edits change any of my points. If anything, it just makes it worse for you by implying single women can't be financially secure, and women in general are incapable of rational thought.

    So I will await your response.
    When I get on a roll I can type pretty fast, but I've encountered a recent problem I didn't expect....

    I don't know if your a gamer, but I recently bought Razor's Nostromo for World of Warcraft use. Functionally it's just a different keyboard so far as the computer is concerned. The problem is, the device driver for the Nostromo interferes with the driver for the regular keyboard, slowing down the regular keyboard noticeably, leaving out every 3rd/4th letter in a sentence if I type fast.

    Sorry, I think I must disagree here. Although I can't imagine what a divorce feels like, we all know the fact that most are initiated by women, and most divorce related suicides are between men. Doesn't that speak for itself?

    In my case, someone else actually is to blame, with criminal charges pending.

    I do believe you have your facts wrong, ab9926. Few people of either gender suicide because they're getting divorced, although this is a painful time for almost everyone.

    Did you know that after a divorce, a man with child support obligations is better off, financially (on average) than he was whilst married, while his former wife and their kids (on average) slide down in economic standing, many into poverty?

    I'm sorry to hear this, and I hope you get justice.

    I can't imagine what sort of voter base an anti-woman candidate would be hoping for amongst men. We men know, that the better our women do, the better we do too. Isn't it a common sense? I guess there is something about American popular culture that I wasn't exposed to. Frankly I don't understand it, where kind of place would such a campaign get a foothold?

    They don't campaign on being anti-woman. They campaign on other things, but they know that men are more likely to overlook anti-woman stances because they aren't women.

    Some men don't believe that. Some men believe society is worse when women participate. So do a few women. And they are overwhelmingly conservative.

    I don't mean to pry, but are they civilian charges or UCMJ?

    Yup. It's for the family -- except that in their vision of a "family", most of us are second class citizens.
