“A Senate Democrat was overheard asking the President if the flying saucers had left yet and whether the Martians had ended their infection of Obama's brain.
Do you need the actual name of the Democratic Senator, or would a simple denial from the White House convince you of the story's veracity?
Durbin needs to provide details, or apologize for his fantasies.”

“I agree. I believe the President wants to shield Americans from any more Republican damage. Congress used to be a role model for civics classes and democracy. Republicans are now advocating to our youth to break the rules, not respect the law, and show no respect to the Presidency or even themselves.”
“The GOP has no intention to work out a solution. This rogue group (GOP) wants to see this country fail and republicans are doing all they can to drive this country into the dirty, and as quickly as possible.”

“Wow. You never really know how much pain someone is in just by looking at the person, no matter how physically attractive on the outside. I wonder what exactly drove this young woman, who wasn't even 30 year old yet and who had a seemingly promising life, to commit suicide?”

“Not everybody bleeds from their vaj during that time of the month. Some women wear DivaCups and they don't leak. Some wear tampons and don't have leaks. Some have Mirena and don't get periods at all! It's not gross.”
“The reverse is also truth. Women. Tying the knot with a men who have kids is a mistake, especially if the kids are by a bunch of different women. You have more "baby mama's" to put up with.”

“I so agree greenstraws. I thnk there's a sub-message here that (some) men who have children just walk away and consider themselves footloose and fancy free and just in fine form to pluck another woman for pleasure. It's bizarre. Of course for each "single mom" there's a "single dad". For every man who marry's a "single mom" thre's a woman who marries a "single dad". The only reason "single mom's" are considered to be saddled with baggage etc. is because they're the ones who take responsibility for their children. It doesn't say much for the biological fathers.
On the other hand, I think there's alot of media blather about this stereotypical bad dad dude rockin' out and there's very little attention paid to the responsible single dads who take responsiblity for their children, share custody and all responsibilities towards their children, and hope to find a new spouse who'll accept them with their "baggage". This is a reality, but it's just not sexy and it doesn't reinforce the "all guys are dudes" norm that many men (and women?) seem to cling to. Men who take responsibility for themselves are truly, deeply sexy, and i bet they're happy, if ignored by social media/social norms.”
“That's my point -- don't become a stepparent unless you're absolutely ready. There are plenty of women and/men out there in the dating pool with no kids of their own and who want to someday start a family.
By the way, in reference to your above argument, stepmothers are ALSO expected to willing take whatever comes down the pipe -- and to put up with another man's kids and that man's "baby mama." It works both ways.
I couldn't see myself being a STEP-parent but to each his or her own.”
“Really cool. Hopefully, the teen will motivate more girls and young women to enter into the fields of engineering and science. There are so many programs and scholarships out there that are targeted toward increasing the number of women in these fields.”
“Why "settle" for anything? If I have to settle for something, then I don't want it. Yes, blended families are more common now but if you date the person knowing that he or she has a child from a prior relationship, then the burden is on the individual who accepted "the package" deal going into the situation. Has nothing to do with settling for anything, it is a conscious "choice" that the man (or woman) has made when choosing to date and then marry someone with a child from a previous relationship. If you accepted it the circumstances and married, despite the circumstances (as a stepdad or a stepmom), then deal with it. ”

“once you hit 40, being single, especially in the midwest... is all down hil.
actually it's more like going off a cliff.
single moms are the norm. you gotta have a job, a car, income, a house, no wants, no warrents, nothing extra.
they get to be divorced, with kids... and "a few extra pounds" which is usually the pc way of saying "ahh crap, it's all gone to hell" but you have to jump through hoops to be with em? pffff... i'll take strippers, thanks.

“You make a strong argument for NOT being a stepfather. Stepfathers are expected to willingly take whatever comes down the pipe.Often cleaning up the mess that was the previous guys mess. You would think that would garner more respect than is actually given,”

“I'm saying with the divorce rate being so high then, yes, at some point a certain percentage of the population *is* going to have to settle for getting married to people who have been married and possibly had kids before. That is, unless you just choose not to get married. Personally all these people gripping about their spouses probably never should have gotten married in the first place though. I hate that our culture idealizes marriage so much. Most people are extremely bad at it.”
“Don't use social media...that's an option. Or if you do make the choice to use it (and it is a "choice"), then limit the personal information about yourself that you put out there. Nobody is forced to use social media (e.g., Facebook, Twitter, etc.) use it at your own risk. ”

“That is certainly good advice. It may not be as complete as you think though. For example, I stubbornly stayed away from creating a Facebook page for myself for that very reason. Also because I thought it was a tremendous waste of time. Finally, after starting a business and being urged to utilize Facebook to promote it, I did so. When I went to build a page, Facebook had all these suggestions about books, movies and TV shows I might enjoy and they were spot on, nearly 100% accurate? Without ever having engaged in Facebook, Twitter or MySpace or anything like that, somehow they knew what I liked and what my viewing reading habits were. It is almost impossible to avoid having your personal life on record the moment you log onto a computer and make your first internet search. The question becomes whether or not we are comfortable with that development or if we want to work to change it.”

“Most social media is a complete waste of time. (HA, what are we doing on it?)
Well the Facebook type.
No, Huff Po is about ideas (more).”
