When two or more get going at the same time, all I hear is high-pitching squealing and attempting to finish your sentence after the person you`re trying to talk over has given up and graciously allowed you to be heard.
(<--- most chauvinist woman ever)
To be fair, guy arguments are just repeating yourself over and over and over until your opponent acknowledges you were right in what you`re saying.
I`m not sure which is worse.
JEEEEEEEEEEEEEEZ that irritates me."70% of prisoners come from single mother homes""Well *I* never did"
Lets look at that for 10 seconds shall we, using our friend math.
100 million single parent children. 270 million from 2 parent homes.7.2 million prisoners. 70% from single parent homes. (Lets say 5m) which leaves lets say 2m from double parent homes. (Pretending orphans don`t exist).
SO, if you are from a single parent home, you have a 5% chance of being in jail. (You are one of 95 million not in jail). If you are from a 2 parent household, you have an 0.74% chance of being in jail. (6.7 times less likely).
Now, lets add your contribution to these numbers, assuming they missed you somehow:It`s no longer 5%, it`s 4.999999951%. Thanks for the enlightenment.
Summary: Just because you are one of the 95%, doesn`t make the 5% being complained about go away.
Insan: Actually at least in levels of abuse, most abused children were wanted children. I don`t know how this translates to single motherhood and upbringing, but don`t just assume.
It`s pathetic, people who have babys for themselves are selfish bitches, just like all these materialistic woman on the view. Another life isn`t like a purse to make you happy, until you get a new one.
I think you shouldn`t have a baby until your positive that you wont bail out on the relationship with the father until the child is not living with it`s parens. If your going to be a irresponsible dumb f your going to make a an irrepressible dumb f. duh.
Is she, like... stupid?
What exactly does she/he propose to do with all the children of single mothers? Stick em in care? Presumably 1 parent is better than none.
She attacked 9/11 widows, told jews that they could be perfected by becoming christian and what she said to elizabeth edwards was appalling. She is not to be admired in any way.
i took a african american psych class about a year ago and we discussed this exact thing. how the matriarchal family is the downfall of africanamerican society. in fact we had a huge discussion about whether its the fault of the man for leaving, or the woman for pushing the man away.
Additionally, if you look into it, the liberals are mostly college students who eat more Ramen that the rest of the population. They also play more violent video games because they are not spending time reading the bible, like the godly Republicans.
This CLEARLY shows that GTA causes violence in children and makes mass murderers (who coincidentially eat Ramen.) (No fathers) These Ramen eating bastards live in a time where the pandas are dying and this shows that it is no mere coincidence!
The liberal Ramen-eating violent children grow into filthy criminal adults, while creating more victims and raising more children without fathers!
Coulter is right! Ramen is the cause of the deaths of Pandas (due to the children raised without fathers) and O`Reilly must save them (the pandas)
Personally, I hate Ann Coulter, she looks like a damn horse. Whoopie hit it right on the head by calling it her `act.` I can`t believe the amount that this woman has made on stupid principals, like "Victim of a crime - blame a single mother."
And I like your post, Lusien. It is misunderstanding statistics, and usually I`d say, "Give `er a break, she just doesn`t get it." But I dislike Ann Coulter too much to cut her any slack.
And Lusi`s throwing out some pretty smart sh*t here...
This isn`t a liberal/conservative thing, this is somebody using facts that don`t apply to her argument to reason that her statements are factual, when in fact they are all based on a simple error in understanding the differences of causation and correlation.
I`m gonna go with team liberal, simply because they wouldn`t let the woman make a point, and the dumba$$ audience claps after every dumb attack they make at coulter.
I hate television.
it`s very fitting
She takes a position that contends that two parents are better than one, and makes it look like a judgemental, holier-than-thou, conservative republican point of view.
So now, one either agrees with her and keeps company with Coulter or has to backpedal and find some tolerable position to avoid such a stigma.
I was thinking the exact same thing while watching this.
After watching crap like this, i feel pretty bad, but then i read the IAB comments and laugh it off.
Ann Coulter is self-serving, manipulative. At this point her womb has probably dried up out of protest.
that said, I really don`t see the point of The View. Meh, pointless talk show. And who wants to show a bunch of people arguing over each other meting out their petty vengeances.Lame.
as far as single mothers vs 2 parents, i dont really see how you can say that a loving 2 parent home is NOT better than a loving single parent home. There will be plenty of stories of people saying "my child has just me and hes great!" but im willing to bet that for every story like that you will have quite a few saying "my kid had two parents and things were great"
seems like the comments are all about single parents saying they are fantastic and single parent kids saying their parent is great, probably because saying "i have two parents and i turned out fine" isn`t very surprising or interesting
she was invited on....... LEAVE HER ALONE, BIH
That`s not what she was talking about though. 1. Her statistics are seriously questionable.2. You assume, at least in your devil`s advocate answer, that a single parent home is not stable OR loving, I politely disagree.3. Her ridiculous idea that single motherhood is an attack on the family by the left? INSANE.4. Single mother`s are portrayed as the victims because, hey guess what, a lot of the time they are.5. Why are there tons and tons of movies praising single mothers? Because, many of them raise their children brilliantly, and ARE actually heroes.
(darn censor making my post that I got to exactly 1000 characters, go over the limit :( )
Also you talked about her stats. I`m curious on how many people actually have divorced parents in total. I did a survey at my high school, and the majority of the people I gave the surveys to had divorced parents. It makes sense that the majority in jail have divorced parents, if most
I`m not perfect, and my child wont be either, but he sure as hell wont end up in jail
(that was to primes argument about finances with single mums)
Ann says "Let me answer" and they all start screaming. Jesus, just let her talk.
Just to continue the debate....
but dont other issues like financial... or not being able to take the child to soccer practice also account into this?
This woman has no clue what she`s talking about. She read some numbers on a page and said, "hey, they`re numbers and they`re on a page so they must be correct." and then she decided to defend them to the death.Single parenthood may not be the best thing for a child, but there are far worse alternatives and it isn`t the mother`s fault alone if the child turns out to be f*cked up. Personal circumstances are always involved, but you won`t find many statistics about those.
With that said.... it is an interesting topic that has some truth to it. There is no doubt that a single parent is a disadvantage... now to what extent?
Now out of the collected group of idiots... i think the one in green was the worse one. She said nothing related to the book and claimed victory.
I say we kill them all expect hasslebeck. She`s cute.
If I may be devil`s advocate: She was merely giving some statistics. Can anyone here disagree that a child raised in a single parent home is at a disadvantage compared to a child raised in a stable, loving two parent environment? I don`t think you can.
She`s not saying all single parent children are bad people or druggies or abusers or prostitutes, but STATISTICALLY she is saying of all the drug addicts, abusers and prostitutes, the majority come from single parent families.
This is not a perfect world and not all parents are loving and supportive and so the need for single parentage arises. Whether or not these statistics are accurate, what can we possibly do about it?
Lillian, yes you are better off without that abusive scum and I ask you this: Would you have preferred a loving 2 parent home as opposed to what you had?
You cannot fight your percieved extremism (to her it would be socialism or "leftist" mentality) with more extremism.
To pump up ratings. If the people hate you, they will come.
Plus, isn`t it also a form of ignorance to group people together and assume them identical to each other based on a single common item? Like race, religion, sexuality, or political affiliation?
Yes, she did and it took me about a minute to stop laughing about her incredible stupidity.
This woman is a moron.
can i stab that woman in the eye with some chopsticks?
