Tonight's Topic: The Plague of Working Women!

Lou Dobbs: I want to do something I don't usually do. I'm going to turn to a study...

[rim shot!]

...Pew Research, showing that women have become the breadwinners in this country and a lot of other concerning and troubling statistics.

[crazy shriek! Laugh track laughing]

Our society is being torn in so many directions right now, this stuff is really at the margin as you watch the Republicans, the Democrats, this president his scandals and the appropriate investigation by the Republicans. When we're watching society dissolve around us.

[foghorn]

Juan, what do you think?

Juan Williams: Lou I just think this should be in large letters in every newspaper in America because what we're seeing with four out of ten families with the woman is the primary the breadwinner, you're seeing the disintegration of marriage, you're seeing men who were hard-hit in the recession in a way that women weren't...

[cats and dogs, living together! MASS hysteria!]

...You're seeing, I think, systemically larger than the political stories we follow every day – something going terribly wrong in American society and it's hurting our children and it's going to have impact for generations to come... Left, right. I don't see how you can argue this!

[laugh track]

Lou Dobbs: You mention children. And those are the children who survive. 54 million abortions since Roe V Wade. 54 million in this country!

[cue Darth Vader theme]

...What has been the impact of that, what does it say about our society, our education.. our high school drop outs! Erick, your thoughts on this study and what it portends?

[Doom! Destruction!]

Erick Erickson: Lou, I 'm so used to Liberals telling Conservatives that they're anti-science but this is, liberals who defend this and say it's not a bad thing are very anti-science...

[You keep using that word... I don't think you know what it means...]

...when you look at biology, when you look at the natural world, the roles of a male and a female in a society and other animals, the male is typically the dominant role, but the female is not antithesis, it's not competing, it's a complementary role.

We, as people in a smart society have lost our ability to have complementary relationships in nuclear family, it's tearing us apart. What I find interesting in the survey is that 3/4 of the people surveyed recognized having mom as primary breadwinner is bad for kids and bad for marriages and reality shows us that that is the truth...

[aaOOOOgah! Laugh track...]

That's all the time we have tonight folks, see you next week!

[cue Benny Hill theme song]

I don't know if this was the science at which they were looking, but it is not simply a bunch of guys with "hunches", as much as you'd like to believe it.

This post is another case of you not providing the source of your concern so that others can get a better look to see if they feel as you do. To be able to hear (or view) the conversation in its entirety may actually help your cause here. Thus far, I'm aware of this only from the blowback its received. Yet I find there is some support for the position. Strangely, it's very much a human nature thing, something that some people think can be turned off, and if so, without negative consequence.

So, like they typical leftist, you prefer to mock what you cannot rebut, demonize that for which you have no proof to the contrary. This is entirely hypocritical coming form someone who so often demands proofs, evidence and/or scientific data for opposing opinions. I'm very much not surprised.
