  • Doug Z


    You are a racist and a hater . You do not have to be that way.

  • Cathy

    I’m talking about from the 80’s to now. The 60’s, 70’s and 80’s saw the money increase. The 90’s had a decline in incomes from the college educated crowd. Many educated women stepped away from work to stay home with their children. The group F.E.M.A.L.E., Formerly Employed Mothers At the Leading Edge took hold.
    Also it’s a fallacy that women did not work in the 30’s, 40’s and 50’s. Poor and lower middle class women have always worked. Be it doing the laundry of the rich, cleaning others homes, watching the children of others, being a waitress in the evening and on weekends. Many also did typing at home. Only upper middle class and the rich don’t need a job to help the family out.

  • Doug Z


    You hate me because of my color, or race. Why do you do that.

    TheBoss1 has been on this site a long time . How many years Boss?

    I don’t watch MSNBC , but, for those that do, Buzz Feed has an article with all the lesser players that should interest most of you.

    Here’s What MSNBC Should Do With Its Weekends Now That Chris Hayes Is Moving


    Obamacare application daunting

    The government’s draft application runs 15 pages for a three-person family. An outline of the online version has 21 steps, some with additional questions….. we’ve heard that

    What I didn’t know

    That’s only the first part of the process, which lets you know if you qualify for financial help

    Once you’re finished with the money part, actually picking a health plan will require additional steps, plus a basic understanding of insurance jargon.

    Some are concerned that many uninsured people will be overwhelmed and simply give up.

    Drafts of the paper application and a 60-page description of the online version were posted online quietly by the Health and Human Services Department,run counter to the vision of simplicity promoted by administration officials.


    Have a good night.


    Doug you know whats fun? watching a republican cry like last November when they lost the election big time!

    ……And the award for most insults in one post goes to………
