” Since President Barack Obama took office in January 2009, the U.S. economy has employed an additional 3,590,000 people, but only 1,386,000 of those people—or 38.6 percent–have been women.
At the same time, women represent 46.8 percent of the national civilian labor force. That means women are getting a smaller share of the jobs being added to the economy (38.6 percent) than their representation in the civilian labor force (46.8 percent).
The percentage of the added jobs that have gone to women is even smaller if measured from the post-recession nadir of employment, which took place in December 2009. Since then, only 37.8 percent of the net additional jobs have gone to women.”
Compare those dismal numbers with the track record of that “known woman-hater” George W Bush …
” When President George W. Bush took office in January 2001, there were 137,778,000 people employed in the United States. Eight years later in January 2009, when Bush left office, there were 142,152,000. Of the 4,374,000 additional people employed during Bush’s full two terms, 1,518,000—or 34.7 percent—were men, and 2,855,000—or 65.3 percent—were women. “

” There are many funny differences between women and men. You can see them in everyday situations. Next time, when you have a fight with your couple, try to remember these pictures! “
Need more convincing ? Try this one .
There are a whole lot more where these came from . Have a laugh .
” I was struck by the difference between the generational and gender appeal of the two candidates. The dial groups showed that Ryan did better with women than with men—in vivid contrast with the usual partisan
patterns. Biden talked strongly about the need to keep Social Security and Medicare as “guaranteed” programs—the kind of thing that has tended over the years to older voters over the years (though they have tended to favor John McCain or Mitt Romney over Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012). But I think that Ryan’s argument that we need to reform these programs in order to make them available to people currently
under 55. Similarly, Biden’s frequent dismissals of Ryan’s and Romney’s positions as “malarkey” may resonate with people of
Biden’s generation—but who under age 40 uses the word “malarkey” any more? “
“On the 2012 list of The FORBES 400 Richest Americans, there are a total of 45 women, accounting for 11% of the list. They span the country, residing in states from Texas to Wisconsin and California, and hold most of their wealth in companies they built or inherited. The top 20 richest women alone control an estimated $160 billion—more than the entire GDP of New Zealand.”

” Barack Obama went into this convention essentially tied with Mitt Romney. Most voters want to think well of whoever is president but most voters dislike the current economy and disapprove of his economic policies. In these
circumstances I thought and think he needs a pivot, an indication of what new goals he would seek in a second term. We didn’t get that at this convention. Bill Clinton dramatically made the argument that no one–not even Bill Clinton–
could have done better. This will be credible to many voters, but probably not to some current
” B-b-b-but Madeleine Albright says she can’t understand why any woman would vote for Mitt Romney.
Seriously, guys, I want to believe. I do. But … I don’t.
Just 47 percent of registered voters in the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll see Obama favorably overall, down 7 percentage points from his recent peak in April, while 49 percent rate him unfavorably. He’s numerically underwater in this group for the first time since February.”
“Romney spoke directly to a struggling America. She told them personal stories about her struggles with breast cancer, living with MS and raising five children. She spoke of the love her husband has given her through more than 40 years of marriage.
“I want to talk not about what divides us, but what holds us together as an American family. I want to talk to you tonight about that one great thing that unites us, that one thing that brings us our greatest joy when times are good, and the deepest solace in our dark hours. Tonight I want to talk to you about love,” Romney said. “I want to talk to you about the deep love I have for a man I met at a dance.” “
The “war” rages on . I’ve lost count but this must be about skirmish number 6 or 7 . Don’t the have any other arrows in their quiver ?
“Democrats say their research shows women are paid just 77 cents for every dollar earned by men and that a law is needed to equalize those rates.
But party lawmakers are not hiding the political motives behind the timing and scope of the bill, which follows a series of other female-focused measures rejected by the Republicans that the Democrats say
demonstrate that the GOP is waging a “war on women.” “
There is a fine article in Reason excerpted below , giving an overview of the renaissance in domestic firearm manufacturing . Well worth your time . The case is made for numerous factors contributing to the dramatic recovery of America’s oldest manufacturing industry and I think they are all to one degree or another valid . Two in particular fire my imagination . The obvious one is the Obama presidency , which given the widespread belief that Dems= Gun Control explains the sharp increase in sales of the past few years . My personal favorite and one I’ve posted on in the past is the large influx of women to the shooting sports . Whether it’s a desire for self-protection , prior military service , finding common ground with a significant other or just a curiosity about the sport all I can say is “Welcome Ladies” we’re glad to have you .
“So far President Obama has not championed this industrial resurgence on his watch. But many in the firearms industry are happy to give him credit. Indeed, while Newt Gingrich has tried to brand Obama “the food stamps president,” it would be equally fitting to call him “the firearms president.” In 2004, when a 10-year federal ban against so-called assault weapons expired, the industry enjoyed only a mild uptick in production numbers. When Obama took office in January 2009 and almost immediately started floating the notion of resurrecting the ban, that mild uptick turned into an explosion, as consumers raced to purchase guns while they still could. One industry news service, Outdoor Wire, dubbed the president “Gun Salesman of the Year.” “
Saudi sports commentator: ‘Allah slaughter me’ before Saudi women enter Olympics
As we all know this is where the real war on women is happening and I find it very telling that the progressives trivialize the REAL obscenity in order to try and score some cheap short term political advantage . But then again they have been shown time and again to be little more than apologists for all manner of abhorrent peoples and behaviors while at the same time trying to convince us of their claim to the moral high ground .
And lest we forget the fire where Saudi Religious Police refused to let firefighters near the school to fight the fire and 14 girls perished . These are the animals the progressives coddle . Scum .
“The 2002 Mecca girls’ school fire happened on March 11, 2002 in Mecca, Saudi Arabia. Fourteen people were killed. The event was especially notable due to complaints that Saudi Arabia’s “religious police” (aka the Committee for the Propagation of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice) stopped schoolgirls from leaving the burning building and hindered rescue workers because the girls were not wearing correct Islamic dress. As Hanny Megally, Executive Director of the Middle East and North Africa division of Human Rights Watch put it, “Women and girls may have died unnecessarily because of extreme interpretations of the Islamic dress code.”
Had trouble finding that new handgun you wanted ? Your neighborhood gun shop short on ammo in your caliber ? If so then look on the bright side , it may be because record numbers of women are choosing to arm themselves and take responsibility for their own safety . Good on you , I say . What’s more
