Lifes greatest happiness, Victor Hugo wrote, is to be convinced we are loved.

But men ignore this expectation-filled Hallmark holiday at their peril, which is why its become a $16 billion industry. More than heart-shaped bling, women savor attention a lesson also noted by politicians.
Just as women should be wary of transient Romeos, they must think again about politicians who whisper sweet nothings into their ears, over-promising before an election and under-delivering after winning their commitment.
A frequent refrain of President Obama's -- asserted as earnestly as if you like your health care plan, you can keep it -- is the claim repeated in his State of the Union address that women make 77 cents for every dollar a man earns.

The bottom line is that when you hear "War on Women", libs mean two things -- unrestricted access to abortions at any time, and government paid birth control, including abortion.
Now that's funny...
How does that work with two married (women) lesbos?
Or as we call it around here: Marriage License Renewal Day
