Re: $39k birthday party for 3-year-old

This is not a kid's birthday party, it's an adult's party using the kid as a reason.

Re: Down to the Nitty Gritty

Re: End RoboCalls!

We have Caller ID, and simply don't answer any from people we don't know

Re: 1 mil for retirement is enough?

I will never understand why people complain about this deal.

Re: Millennial Parents Sink Under Weight of Debt

>>But government mandated "maternity leave" usually doesn't BEGIN until medical leave ends.

Re: Advantages to children of working mothers

You often complain that Democrats are against the working class, but it appears that, like most Republicans, the people you truly care about are the capitalists, not the workers
