WORK

Interesting study on how women need to quit their bitching: Surprise -- Men Do Just As Much Work As Women Do
For the record, my husband works way more than I do. He always has. Even when I had two jobs and felt like I was going nuts, he was deployed. So he always trumps me.

Oh yes. My husband has always done WAY more work than me. I only started appreicating just how much work that was when he left for deployment prep. I had to outsource of it, like the cleaning and the yard work.

Another hardworking woman---

http://www.craigslist.org/about/best/sfo/309485032.html

I'm a Marine and I served my tour in Iraq. My husband, also a Marine, served several. I left the service six months ago because I got pregnant while he was home on leave and three days ago I get a visit from two men in uniform who hand me a letter and tell me my husband died in that f*cking festering sand-pit. He should have been home a month ago but they extended his tour and now he's coming home in a box.

You f*ckers and that god-damn lying sack of shit they call a president are the reason my husband will never see his baby and my kid will never meet his dad.

Well if itís on Craigslist it must authentic. I mean, it couldnít be a fake by some anti-war peacenik trying to spread their hate, no way.

Q, why no e-mail address? Yea, like I canít figure that one out also.

How come the Craigslist poster talks about being a Marine and the post is titled "An Angry Soldier"??

Why the heck would I want to get emails from you?

Anybody see the soldiers' testimony today about the lies the Pentagon manufactured over the Tilman and Lynch cases? Twisting the Tilman death and Lynch injury into their exact opposites for propaganda. Is that how the US military honors its dead?

And you can't hide behind the "Craiglist" excuse this time http://www.cnn.com/2007/POLITICS/04/24/tillman.hearing/

Q,

Donít flatter yourself. Intentionally excluding your e-mail is always suspicious.

Good luck getting the whole story and truth from Congressional Committees.

As far the military honoring their dead, I highly doubt you know anything about the subject.

Go hijack a thread at the Daily Kos where they appreciate your type.

Later sheep.

So let's get this straight. Army Spc. Bryan O'Neal testifies that he was told to lie about the Tillman death, and the Tillman family is aghast at the lies. That's okay with you?

Well...as much as I love looking at statistics because I think they tell many truths, I don't really buy this one. Most men I know would openely admit (especially those who live with wives who work full-time outside of the home) that their counterparts do a whole lot more "work" than they do in a week's time. I think the article even alluded to that in the last paragraph. Other stats point out that women with children who work outside of the home actually work the equivalent of two full-time jobs. So...although I value the work that men do, I think women still have the upper hand on that one.
