Commented Mar 17, 2011 at 15:01:46 in Politics

“48% of the people of this country pay no taxes (or its refunded) and you all complain about everyone else.................aka The Taxpayer................ stuck funding these losers.”

“love this story. it shows in minn that the poor and middle class pay more taxes than the rich.

“one reason they don't make anything is they were fired by companies who shipped jobs overseas....and still get their tax breaks.”

“When is the media going to get it straight? The Republican mayor of Miami just got overwhelmingly recalled because he uped the property taxes and gave money away to the public unions. It doesnt matter who the Party is. The people have had is with any political group robbing the Taxpayer!”

“You must need some Preparation H because you are pulling this false information out of your "you know what".”

SuperV on Mar 17, 2011 at 15:07:18

“Oh really? give it away to public unions? What's your source? Huh? Or do you just like bashing ordinary working Americans. 'Cause that's what unions are. Groups of regular folks fighting for their rights.

That's something the Teapartiers should *support*.”

ThunderclapNewman on Mar 17, 2011 at 15:07:03

“He didn't give the money to public unions---that is a deliberate lie.

He gave huge raises to his staff---as much as $30,000 a year to one person.”

“As usual. Not a word about the incredibly destructive divorce laws that destroy mens lives. Clueless!”

fruitcake007 on Mar 6, 2011 at 21:41:07

“As a woman, I agree with this. I was talking with a girlfriend the other day and she was flabbergasted by what I had to say. I said that I was perfectly happy to sign a pre-nup saying that all that I would be entitled to upon divorce would be what I had earned prior to entering into the marriage. I didn't think it was right for me to automatically entitle myself to 50% of the man's wealth just because things didn't work out. If there are kids involved the situation becomes much more complex, but I said "as long as the husband puts a good portion of his wealth in trust to the kids, and only for the kids, and not for me, I'd be fine". Point being that the kids can access my ex-husband's wealth for the furtherance of their education and so on, but I wouldn't be able to touch it.

Big boy rules. If things don't work out, why should wifey catch a major windfall and hubby be forced to split with half of his hard-earned dough?”

“Exactly. My wife tells me the same thing. Men dont live in that world. We are basic problem solvers. Its how we live our life. We are trying to make things better so we come up with solutions. Women just want to be heard ( so try not to let your eyes glaze over)........................LOL”

Paul Sta on Feb 20, 2011 at 16:37:44

“I think women need to feel emotionally supported and for us to agree with their side, disagreeing and problem solving doesnt work. my wife can go on about her boss for hours, when I suggest addressing her concerns with her boss, its not what she wants.

Im so glad she has a lot of friends, men sometimes need to feel supported also, if I complained about my boss, or my bad day, the response is suck it up, stop being a baby. As far as emotional support goes, we have to give better than we get.”

Paul Sta on Feb 20, 2011 at 16:28:00

“I think men are born problem solvers thats simply how we deal with things, wives want us to sympathize and feel with them, its not exactly how we are wired. If we have an issue we dont want to dwell on it, we want to fix it. Women deal with issues much more emotionally. I guess to different sides on the brain.”

“I repeat......men have stopped asking women to get married (the answer to the articles question "Why your not married") because the divorce laws have destroyed marriage for men. They are not entering marriage in the first place. Women dont get the chance to divorce men (for any reason) if they are not married in the first place. Its the inequity in the divorce laws that no one on these posts or the article are addressing to any degree. You can talk all day about the selfishness, lazyness , inability to commit on the part of men (as many, many of these posts state). But the articles question "Why your not married" fails to address why men are not marrying you by asking men why they are not asking you. I tried (really tried) to address the question and a major reason why the number of marriages has dropped to its lowest in 100 yrs (CNN). And will continue to drop! If folks want to concentrate on lesbianism, "i want to be single", "i hate men"," i dont want kids", " i just want to get laid" etc, etc thats fine. But my interpretation of the question was the basis for my answer and has Tracy left out a major reason as to "Why your not married".”

“Its not a mans style to "confront' anyone. Too dangerous in our lexicon. Especially with women because your verbal reaction can be so vitriolic. Thats why talking to yourselves and arriving at your own conclusions is false. There is an old saying...................If men spoke to men the way women speak to men the homicide rate (for men) would skyrocket. This is how men have had to deal with each other since the playground.”

“I have run it through my filter. Its called the LAW! A little aside that the author and posts to this article left out! Men have stopped marrying you (lowest in 100 yrs, recent CNN news) because its not worth it. We couldnt care less about your careers or what YOU define as "equality" in the relationship. Divorce rewards women and turns men into chattel. You steal our children 95% of the time and we are robbed financially. BTW my Mother worked her whole life and she cooked and cleaned and took care of me and my Dad. My Dad?...........he just worked a whole lot more to support his family and never i heard my Mother whining about "equality" in the relationship!”

“Women institute the vast majority of divorces in this country for the reasons i have previously stated. You have literally robbed men of their drive to protect women and children and raise a family. Just as you have proclaimed (since the 70s) that all sexual intercourse is "rape". You have lawyers and the entire government system to support you. You can thank the liberal/progressive agenda and feminist movement for this dramatic shift. It was never about equality it was and is about destroying men. Men have been left with no choice but to avoid this basic construct of our society. Your call.”

“SOMEONE is a little miffed about their (impending?) divorce.

Listen pal, I have no interest in taking yours or any other man's money, I make enough of it on my own. Perhaps the reason you've been left in the dust is your infantile outlook on relationships and moronic sweeping generalizations.

Take a pill, have a drink, take a deep breath, and look inward to find out why she left you.”

“You are not married because men have stopped asking women to get married. Thats why. Why is that you ask? Because women are incapable of committing to marriage,a husband and a family. Again why,you ask? Divorce! Men are just as capable as you are to see the benefits of divorce for the woman and the destruction it wreaks on a man. Do you actually think that there are no ramifications for stealing a mans children and then turning him in to chattel? There isnt a woman in the western world that would marry a man if the divorce laws were reversed. Run this through your brain filter and completely distort what i just wrote.”

Endora on Feb 18, 2011 at 13:31:22

“Men have stopped asking women to get married, because it doesn't provide the same benefits for them that it did for their fathers. That is - a woman who was home full time to cook, clean, carry for the children, etc. Women have careers, they have economic freedom, and they aren't going to knock themselves out for decades like our mothers did trying to do both - be the perfect June Cleaver and successful career woman. We expect more equality in the relationship - and that means men have to give up something - putting in more time and attention (beyond taking out the garbage). MEN's selfishness is a primary factor leading to divorce - run that through YOUR filter.”
