We are slacking our way to success on Saturday afternoon.
And as we slack, we wonder - when women make different career choices that lead to lower pay, it represents a national crisis so grave that our President feels obliged to lie about it.
But when the loss of subsidies with higher income discourages the working class from actually trying to work their way up the ladder, progressives cheer the choice of free time over paid effort.
Well... since the topic is women in society, sort of, I am also wondering whether I can make it through yet another day without accidentally seeing some ice dancing from Sochi. Now this is an example of women crushing the American spirit. Most of the time we can count on male-oriented sports programming, with lots of football, basketball, beer commercials, hair loss advice, pick-up trucks, and of course, Viagra and its many, many, many competitors.
But come the Olympics the networks feel obliged to scoop up the chicks with lots of ice dancing (winter) and gymnastics, synchronmized swimming and rhythmic aerobic dancing (summer). Groan - why can't I be watching Lithuania play Estonia in ice hockey like a real American? Instead I am being offered a chance to watch Miss Unpronounceable from Unrecognizable twirl around like... well, like the finger twirling next to my head to indicate my probable mental status.
One day more...
