Single: "The end of a husband's responsibility to provide for his family." That was pretty much a gimme, particularly if you knew anything at all about men and how they see sex. Phyllis might have been able to stretch this one into a double if she'd seen the end of husbands, but she played it safe and stayed at first.My daughter's teacher won't be pointing any of this out, of course, but all of us know the truth. Phyllis was right all along.
Double: "The end of laws protecting homemakers." You might think the center fielder misplayed that line drive into the gap, but really, it was a double all the way as the government has endlessly celebrated and pushed women in the workforce. Those women had to come from somewhere. The home, for example.
Triple: The triple is the hardest thing to hit, but Phyllis laced one down the right field line into the corner. Even though she's not known for her speed, there was no way she wasn't going to steam into third with this one: "The drafting of women." Seriously, I don't think that anyone could have predicted what we've got now, women in the infantry. The infantry.
Home run: "Same-sex marriages." When a judge rules that Oklahoma of all places must recognize gay marriage, you know you've got an upper deck blast. The left fielder never moved at all, he just watched it soar over his head.
Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Tuesday unveiled some concrete steps to promote the role of women in corporate Japan, with the country facing a shrinking workforce and rapidly aging population...
The prime minister said his government would expand after-school child-care services, which are already providing care for 850,000 elementary school students after school and on weekends for working mothers at low cost...
“Sustained efforts will be needed to promote women’s work participation,” Mr. Abe said at a symposium in Tokyo that discussed “womenomics.” Last year, Mr. Abe set a goal of filling 30% of leadership positions in the public and private sectors with women by 2020.Japanese government debt is totally out of control, the birthrate is pitifully small, the population is shrinking and the solution is ... get more women to join the workforce!

GOV. JERRY BROWN: ...I mean there is no scientific question. There's just political denial for various reasons, best known to those people who are in denial.No matter what the problem might be, no matter how pointless the proposed act, Jerry Brown is finding new ways to move power out of the private sector and into the government. That's fascist in and of itself - the one-way, permanent flow of power to the government - but his style is very Mussolini.
...(W)e here in California are on the front lines. We've got to deal with it. We've already appropriated $600 million. We have 5,000 firefighters. We're going to need thousands more. And in the years to come, we're going to have to make very expensive investments and adjust. And the people are going to have to be careful of how they live, how they build their homes and what kind of vegetation is allowed to grow around them.
STEPHANOPOULOS: So what else can you do right now to prevent the worst?
I know you've signed an executive order creating new regulations and local governments...
BROWN: ...(W)e've got to gear up. We're going to deal with nature as best we can, but humanity is on a collision course with nature and we're just going to have to adapt to it in the best way we can.
In California, we're not only adapting, but we're taking steps to reduce our greenhouse gases in a way that I think exceeds any other state in the country. And we'll do more.

Why did the students object to the head of the IMF speaking at their graduation? Because, as they wrote in their anti-Lagarde petition, "the IMF has been a primary culprit in the failed developmental policies implanted in some of the world's poorest countries. This has led directly to the strengthening of imperialist and patriarchal systems that oppress and abuse women worldwide."
Waiting for a flight in the Phoenix airport, I just happened to run into a fellow Cursillista from around here. We compared Cursillo experiences and then he told me a Marian miracle story from his life involving him surviving lung cancer. It had the same message as my Marian miracle story.
That Mary, she sure gets around.
Watching members of Notre Dame seek to protect their innocent, shell-like ears from the wicked temptations of traditional marriage while places like Oakland are falling to ruin as a result of "inclusiveness" is something else.
Scoreboard, kids. Championing inclusiveness over traditional marriage is like being a fan of the Houston Astros. Go ahead and wear the jersey, but don't try telling the rest of us that your team doesn't stink.

Cambridge, Mass., May 9, 2014 / 12:10 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- A Harvard student group organizing a re-enactment of a satanic black mass on campus has dismissed Catholic critics, calling their views arrogant and their objections ignorant and intolerant.So, as I read this, objecting to Satanism is intolerant.
“Satanists have a ritual that they perform for their own affirmative reasons,” the Harvard Extension Cultural Studies Club told CNA May 8, adding that these reasons “currently have absolutely nothing to do with Catholicism beyond the symbols themselves.”
“Offense is anachronistic and based on intolerance and ignorance about the practice (of) Satanism.”
|Isn't this just a shade intolerant, Michelle? After all, Boko Haram have rituals that they perform for their own affirmative reasons.|

A child's goals: Maximize pleasure and minimize aggravations.These are often orthogonal. For example, the best definition of happiness I've heard comes from either Earl Nightingale or Zig Ziglar and it goes something like, "Happiness is the achievement of a worthy goal." Such achievements require regular doses of aggravation suffered with grace as well as the delay of pleasures. Dittos for success. Jerry Rice's workouts are the last word in self-inflicted aggravation and delayed pleasure. Finally, it's far easier to maximize pleasure if you're dependent on someone else. And think of all the aggravations you push off on them!
An adult's goals: To be happy, successful and independent.

The two biggest employers in Torrance, which has a population of 147,000 according to city figures, are Toyota and Honda. Both have about 4,000 employees. Losing Toyota will mean an annual loss of $1.2 million in tax revenue, Scotto said, but the emotional toll and wider economic impact will be much bigger, he said.Pondering it over the last few days, I started to think about what must have gone into that corporate decision. Relocation costs, loss of productivity during the move, environmental clean up costs on the deserted site and, most of all, not knowing which employees would move with them.
