NOW President Claims Stay At Home Moms Lack ‘Life Experience’ & “Imagination’
Flopping Aces ^ | 04-13-12 | Curt

Why do Democrats hate Mothers?

The Democrats continue to give us gifts. Here is NOW President Terry O'Neill on Ann Romney:

TERRY O’NEILL: What would we be saying if Hillary Clinton had said this: that Ann Romney has never, has not worked for pay outside the home a day in her life? That’s my understanding that’s an accurate statement, and that raises the exact issue that Hilary Rosen was trying to get to, which is do Mr. & Mrs. Romney have the kind of life experience and if not, the imagination, to really understand what most American families are going through right now? I think that that was what Hilary was getting out, and so she left out the words “for pay outside the home.”

Lack life experience and imagination because they raised their children? Are you freaking kidding me?

That's your modern day feminist I suppose. Why support woman in all walks of life when you can marginalize and demean some (stay at home Moms) while support those who choose to leave the kids with babysitters.

Actually NOW leaders tend lack the life experience of a hetero relationship.

They’re the ones who, in school, never got to go to the prom, never went out on a date (at least with a guy), and probably were the targets of derision.

And later made their lives’ goals the denigration of the male species.

I heard a talk show caller this am say that if Mrs. Romney had taught 5 children at a govt run daycare (aka headstart) she would be proclaimed a hero by the left.

Doing it for your own kids is inferior.

Vile women like this, and feminists in general are repulsive because they fail at life (at least partially), blame others for it, and demand something for their shortcomings.

Once again the democrats have changed the subject and taken control of the conversation. Romney said his wife shares information she hears from listening to women on the campaign trail. Those women say they are concerned about jobs and the economy.

The libs turned it into a debate about stay at home mom's and the republicans fell into the trap letting the point of Obama's failure to be lost in the shouting.

Stupid broad!

No imagination? My mother had plenty. Dad did his best, but financially, it was tough providing for us, so Mom was the ultimate money saver. You would be surprised what all she could make out of an old piece of fabric. She could stretch one meal into three or four. We seldom threw out old clothes. Once I tossed an old blouse. Mom went into the garbage bag, pulled out the blouse and made it look good as new.

Mom knew what it was like to struggle. She grew up during the Great Deression. She had to scratch around to survive. These women may be liberated, but they don’t know what hard work is and how to survive. If things get tough, turn to the government for help. Some liberation.

Oh I get it. It's about the economy . Only if you pay to have someone else care for your children do you matter in the "real" world. By being selfish and not allowing others to financially gain from your children you are not an active contributor to the good of all society. You don't count

Neither does your husband. What kind of ego driven self serving clueless 1 per-center would allow for the mother of his children to go the traditional route when there are less fortunate out there?

FOLLOW THE MONEY - "housewives" don't pay income taxes...plain and simple.

And they give working democrat women someone to look down on.

Probably if these peoples' Mothers would have stayed at home, they wouldn't be democrats today, they would have been taught some morals and values.

No worries though, once they manage to abort and kill off all of the conservatives (read: grown-ups), they'll just fight amongst themselves for the bounty, just like pirates, until they're all gone too.

Prosperity, like freedom, must be constantly attended to, or both will dry up. The loyal subjects of obamaland might someday succeed in taking all we have, but once its used up, its used up...once all of the producers have shrugged, or gone before death panels.

The ignorant street gnomes live in a fantasy world and through their crack-fogged brains will buy and believe any fantasy obama cares to utter...and most of his utterances ARE fantasy.

We're not fighting intellectual battles any longer, it has devolved into "jungle law", survival of the fittest. They can't make it, so they'll just take it.

Right now they're in the midst of taking our Republic, using one of our most famous quotes - "United we stand, divided we fall" - against us.

Having become sideshow, carney, hypnotist victims from the one-eyed monster - television - we just don't seem to concern ourselves with digging for the truth, and true history. The more ignorant they are, the more they believe whatever the plug-in drug tells them; it's been said that the less intelligent amongst us, watch the most television.

The last several awards of the Nobel Peace Prize have proven beyond a doubt what a farce it is, the ones who should received these prizes are the men and women who stay at home and raise their kids to become responsible people.

I have always believed that raising kids to make it on their own in the world, IS the PRIME role of parents. My sole focus was that parents don't last forever, and my kids need to be able to make it after I'm gone. The theory worked in my case, both my kids are college-educated, successful people raising their families under those same principles.

Stay-at-home Moms - in most cases - produce happier, and more successful children. The tend to their children, not put them into the streets to allow thugs to influence them.

The "moms" who squirt out kid after kid just to increase their government stipend are populating the streets - not the world. The streets teach them to steal, to engage in violence, join gangs, and take drugs. Then - when this behavior leads to their death, or incarceration - these voodoo parents feign remorse, claiming instant victimhood status and demanding "no justice, no peach". Well, perhaps what happens to them IS "justice", in a macrabre manner.

The family is the basis and backbone of freedom; when we started paying people to procreate we destroyed the family as a unit. This self-centered society shows us parents that still have a long way to go in the maturing process; still caught up in drugs and alcohol themselves, yet populating the streets with more of the same.

It's a "good deal" for them though - have all the free sex you want, get pregnant, have the government pay for the delivery, and send you over a grand a month for EACH CHILD you produce. It's a way for them to never have to work a day in their lives...by the time all of the kids are grown, they're eligible for Social Security, food stamps and welfare.

What person that wallows in that world wouldn't want obama as president - he EMPOWERS them. His presidency reflects the "all play, no work" theme and he has convinced the ignorant that he has a "stash" and will share it if they will only vote him back into power.

But the question is, how do you put the toothpaste back into the tube? That is the conundrum we face today.

One thing is for sure, pandering to the left and to the media for Republicans is a useless drill, they are brainwashed and ideologically cemented in place, and nothing a conservative says is going to change their thought process.

It is going to take courage, and there is going to be mayhem before its over. For proof, give the average dog a bone, and just as he's gnawing on its goodness...try to take the bone away.

Lesbians is right.

They call themselves ‘feminists’ when all they are is lesbians. Why do normal women even listen to these man hating failures? The only way they achieve any relevance, if only in their own eyes, is by creating an artificial, parallel unnecessary and unwanted world where up is down and black is white.

Since when have liberals ever demonstrated shame, except as a form of self hating guilt in support of the false premise of social justice?

“Why do Democrats hate Mothers?”

Because they made the CHOICE to HAVE children.

The WRONG choice, according to the leftist homicidal freaks.

Sixty years ago, Hollywood created a phony image of mothers — Donna Reed, June Cleaver, etc. That type of mother hardly existed in real life, but the uppity leftwing writers and producers didn’t know that. They looked at their own empty Hollywood lives and began to despise the fantasy image they created. We’ve been watching and reading expressions of their hatred ever since.

This is why they hate Sarah Palin. They can’t stand that Mrs. Palin is attractive, physically fit, had 5 kids, grandkids, ran a state government, and has a hunk for a husband. “It’s not fair!”

The whole issue is about women’s self esteem, or NOW’s lack of it.

NOW means that they need to undergo political re-education under the Feminazi model. No dissent. No escapees from the liberal plantation.

A reminder, NOW supported a known perp of workplace sexual harassment, and likely serial rapist.

NOW is not for women or their rights. They are the female arm of the liberal establishment, that is all.

Let them keep digging this hole for themselves...they will bury themselves in it.

Most Americans have mothers, grandmothers, aunts, sisters, duaghters, friends...people they know who either stay at home to take care of their children and at significant sacrifice, or who wish they could.

These people are diss’ing them all and it will reflect on them badly.

...as if though Barack Obama and Michelle had the type of down to earth life’s experiences that these people are trying to infer that Ann Romney does not have.

I know this...even though on a couple of occassions she had to work to help financially get us through, for most of our lives my wife, Gail, has been able to stay at home and raise five children. Doing so, meeting all of those needs and demands, doing all the shopping, dealing with the daytime schooling and sports, juggling money and time schedules, cleaning the house, assigning xhores and keeping track of them, running them here and there, instilling good values and ethic into them...even while they fight and bicker with one another...is harder work than most of what I have had to deal with at my own jobs.

I respect unendingly those Mom’s who make that choice...because when they can, IMHO, it helps improve society and the next generation far better than a day care can. The more who want to do this and can, IMHO, the better for us all.

And in so doing, they get a more healthy dose of what real life is all about and how to make it in this day and age with food, budgeting, crisis resolution, education, etc. (the list goes on and on) than most of us professionals do.

My mother was a “stay at home Mom.” To the upper middle class, that meant organizing large events like charity fashion shows, volunteering at the local convalescent home, Children's Home second hand shop and the Republican Party. She did try to be home when we came home from school and she was a Brownie Scout leader.

Bless those ladies (and gents) because without volunteers, non-profits that do so much in our communities would be in dire straights.

I have worked outside the home all my adult life in the corporate, non-profit and local government world. I supported myself and raised two kids.

My daughter has been a teacher and is now a “stay at home Mom” of three kids under the age of five. If you think THAT is not work, try babysitting them for just one day!

Having served on a local Children and Families Commission for many years, I know that the first five years of life are the most important developmentally. Neglect and abuse during that period of time can actually shrink the physical brain - affecting development for the rest of that child's life. [ http://www.childtrauma.org/ ]

I also know that, in lieu of quality parent time, long term studies have recently shown that children who receive early Head Start and other developmental programs are more likely to graduate from high school and less likely to enter the jail population that peers of the same economic class who have not. [http://www.nhsa.org/files/static_page_files/0610CCDD-1D09-3519-ADAF419AF96C38E0/Head_Start_Return_On_Investment_Brief_LAS-yv.pdf]

Quality time from parents in literacy, numbers, appropriate behavior, sports, arts and other skills will lay a wonderful foundation upon which that child can grow into a healthy teen and adult. I would say that it is definitely a job and a demanding one at that.

The early years are also where children gain what is called “emotional literacy.” I believe that the preponderance of the evidence shows that attention given to the parenting and development of young children in their first five years has tremendous pay back in the success of that child as an adult in society and the decreased likelihood that they will require public assistance, court, mental health or other assistance.

Amen to every bit of what you said. God bless you for your commitment to your family and yto our society and the betterment of it, and Gpod bless your Mom for the same.

I hold my wife in the highest regard because when she waas scik and had to have operations for cancer in her thyroid and was in hospital for periods of time, I took leave and stayed home taking care of our five kids while also being by her side as much as I could.

I know for a fact that she, all these years, has worked far harder than I had it at the office and I thank God for her and the difference it has made to our kids.

I pray we overcome these leftist/liberal/elitists who look down their nose at Moms in general, and particularly those who are trying to raise thier kids in a traditional, moral environment. God bless you each for all you do!
