By continuing to condone the use of this terminology in breast cancer awareness campaigns, women send the message that we're okay with the objectification of women and our "boobies."

But you know what else I noticed? President Obama uses the word "folks" extremely often, maybe too often. He used the word "folks" 17 times in total. Romney used it three times; moderator Candy Crawley used it five.

The Politics of Small Business

Nick Friedman

If the presidential candidates want to address the "small business problem," they need to start tackling the issue of capital. Policies must be put in place that eliminate the fear over access to capital, and encourage bright minds to take calculated risks that could end up reaping exponential rewards.

The Rich, the Republicans and the Middle Class

It is pretty obvious why the rich are investing hundreds of millions of their own money to elect Republicans and to defeat Obama. These are investments from which they expect to amass enormous returns by exercising control over government financial policies.

If you'd like to work at a large corporation that happens to have a bullying CEO at its helm, you're now expected to conform to the political agenda of that corporation with your vote and perhaps even with your own personal finances.

Why I Wish Election Season Would End Already

Mike Hogan | Posted 12.18.2012 | Politics
Mike Hogan

I have a secret: I can't wait for this election season to be over. It's not that I don't think there's a lot at stake. There is. It's just that, as usual, we're not talking about the real problems facing the country, and real solutions for dealing with them. One candidate has apparently decided that the best strategy is to avoid talking to anyone who isn't already on his side. When you find out what he's been saying to the people he does trust, you can understand why. The other candidate, whom we've sternly instructed to stop spending so much time running the country so he can look tougher on TV, hasn't articulated any new ideas. His central argument -- I cleaned up their mess and killed the guy they couldn't find -- has a certain elemental appeal, but it's not exactly the stuff Spielberg movies are made of.
