    #9 #10 Great wisdom to know that the value and extent of education for your child(ren) rests on you, the parent. It is so simple to say, yet it screams from the school bells that have now turned into buzzers and gongs.

    #9 #10 One of my mentors had said once "You talk too much. You have too ears, but one mouth. God tells you to speak once, listen twice." I took these words to the heart, and became a lifelong learner. You're right, William. I wish parents would be so sensitive about this. Unfortunately, most of them leave the education of their kids to the schools.

    #6 If only more parents had the same attitude and mental attributes this would be a very different world.. Once the thirst for knowledge is introduced, you will spend the rest of your life drinking parched from the cup. It only takes the right spark like my friend Selim.

    #5 One of the most common lies in my country is that "people have been uneducated and made ignorant." Education is "one of the" government's responsibilities, but "main responsibility" of the individuals. I grew up in the same country, and people call me "The Walking Library," because nobody stopped me from reading, searching, exploring, and learning. My son goes to school, but as his father, it's me who is responsible for his education foremost, not his teachers. And if those teachers are somehow wrong about something, I would emphasize it, too! When I was teaching English classes, my students (and they were adults, not kids or teens) would ask me "Can we talk English as good as you do?" I would always come up with the same answer: "If you don't want to learn, nobody can teach you. If you do, you will learn despite me!"

    #3 I wish I were wrong in most sincerity, but do not feel this is the nature of the majority. I truly believe we are being manipulated by our leadership creating divisive issues in race, sex and religion to name a few. Unfortunately the skills to do so are well honed and most good people do not anticipate treachery. There is simply no greater villain than those who would divide us in hatred and mistrust. We really can not blame our leadership or media, as they would have no power if we failed to follow. There is a better way, we must simply step off the path and hate no more.

    #3 William, Unfortunately you are correct. I believe that if we just role over and take it we would be just as guilty as those who denie us. As a wise man once said. I would rather die for something rather than live for nothing. Thank you for sharing your views.

    Human rights is the fair, ethical and humane treatment of individuals regardless of sex, religion or race. It is a myth of course. An ideal we aspire to as a culture, but as a species we do not act upon. The proportion of our resources devoted to destruction and hatred demonstrates this truth all to clearly..

    @Dr. Allen Brown Sadly enough, our God-given rights are being flushed down the toilet as an excuse for keeping us safe. Meanwhile, police departments are being given weapons that, Constitutionally, they never should have had in the first place. Because no one is taught how to think critically, the public still swallows the 9/11 lie, despite experts like Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth and Pilots for 9/11 Truth having a plethora of evidence that the whole story around 9/11 was fabricated. We live in a country that is rapidly taking on the aspects of the State that Orwell mentioned in "1984". Books are being removed from library shelves (for example) that were written during WWII...because (I suspect) they challenge some of the most basic ideas about Hitler's actions vis-a-vis Poland among other things, like Hitler's peace treaty with Great Britain . When all the books of that era are finally gone, and the people who fought in the War are dead, the State is free to rewrite history to its liking. This is but one example of the evil being perpetrated against the American people and the rest of the world.

And here you are workin' the poll for dolla bills. Good post. Politicians are all full of crap. Except Bernie Sanders...he's like half full. I'm personally exhausted from all the electioneering going on other there. But it's like train wreck. It's awful, but you just can't look away.

    no, HER data is consistent with my argument - that when you remove the hyperbole of Social Justice and look at specific industries and account with education levels, experience, and time in position - the difference between salaries is most often accounted for my the differentiation of overtime hours vs short shift hours and not a function of gender discrimination. There is no statistically viable wage gap. Data doesn't support it - Market performance doesn't show it. And if you READ my article, and WATCHED the videos - that is the argument I made throughout. Trot out those industries that Goldin is adamant about - and I will let math settle the issue; because that is what math does.

    #9 @Brian McKenzie. Thank you for the data. I agree with your point about pharmacy. In the statement that I quoted, Goldin was indeed praising pharmacy as one of the few industries with a linear relationship between pay and hours worked. This holds for men and women. She was explaining some of the technological advances that have made this possible. Your data are consistent with her arguments about pharmacy. Goldin's data also suggest that many industries do not have this linear relationship between hours worked and pay.

    #8 Women in pharmacy are 53% of the work force market sector according to 2011 census date, in the same sampling period women in the field received a median pay of 111,000 for the profession - 92% of the wage of men in the same sector - In an article from CNN Money - GOLDIN states "Women with children earn less largely because they work fewer hours, source citation: http://cnnmon.ie/237AcBr The article further highlights - "there is a small gap, but it can be almost entirely explained by some men working longer hours - - not discrimination." Economics is not Sociology - Sociology surely is not Economics. They are not interchangeable because of 'feels' - numbers, statistics, reporting quantifiers and market practice don't give credence to the rant.

    #5 As we consider women with and without children in the workplace, the question becomes one for sociologists. Why is work organized in a way that provides large differentials for more consecutive hours in the office and does it need to be that way? I met with Claudia Goldin last year, from that conversation and her AEA address, I believe that she discusses how some firms and occupations organize work to create a linear relationship between consecutive hours worked and pay, which benefits people who value flexibility (see the quote from Goldin below). I think it is best to let all bees view her speech, download her papers and decide for themselves. @Brian Mckenzie, we may have to agree to disagree.

    GOLDIN: … My favorite example is pharmacy, in which there’s virtually no part-time penalty, in which there is very little ownership now in terms of independent pharmacies. …So, there have been changes in pharmacy that have led pharmacists to be better substitutes for each other — the use of highly standardized drugs, for example, less compounding, less individual, less need for a particular pharmacist to deal with you. Information technologies have been absolutely essential. When you go to the pharmacist, it could be any of the pharmacists working there who are intelligent and professional and can read the information about you. So some of what has happened that has been good for women comes from changes that I call organic, and they simply happen because of various technological advances that make each pharmacist a perfect puzzle piece for another pharmacist. And also, I mean, go to Silicon Valley and they don’t talk about family time, they talk about play time, and it’s work-life balance rather than just work-family balance.”

    #4 @Michele Williams Goldin agrees with Anne-Marie Slaughter; in that 'If you take women who don’t have care-giving obligations, they’re almost equal with men. It’s somewhere in the 95 percent range. But when women then have children, or again are caring for their own parents or other sick family members who need care, then they need to work differently.' She terms it "Temporal Flexibility". In that if you compare same and similar family status workers; between the genders - there is minimal statistical difference between pay, by her account 5% by BLS numbers 3% : It is when women leave the work force to have children, or reduce their hours to care for aging parents while the man increases his hours and accumulates overtime that the 'gap' appears.
    Damn Math. * source http://bit.ly/1Rs87RZ The answer - is if you want to be wealthy and get ahead in the labor force - don't get married, don't have kids - and trust me; the men of MGTOW are all too aware of that paradigm - it is why we are not getting married, and certainly not breeding mini-mes

    #2 @Brian Mckenzie I understand and share your frustration over the flawed statistical analysis of the gender pay gap that enflames people’s emotions. However, that does not change the fact that rigorous research in economics, research that controls for education, experience, age and industry, for instance, finds a persistent gender pay gap. The gap is smaller than the overall averages reported in the media, but significant and persistent across most industries. I would recommend the highly rigorous and respected work by two award-winning economists, Claudia Goldin, a chaired professor of economics at Harvard University and Francine Blau, a chaired professor of economics at Cornell University. The gender pay gap is not an issue for radical feminists alone; it is an issue for human beings, men and women, who care about a social structure that is unequal and want their daughters to be paid fairly.

    I agree with your point of view @Brian McKenzie radical feminists complain so much about wages or legal natters being unfair, but as you are going to write an article about it, I don't see any woman complaining about the rights they are awarded with when there's a divorce.

    I agree. My own precious daughter entered an oppressive marriage and was horribly mistreated by her husband and his parents. It happened right here in the US. It's a tragedy no matter what country you live in or what religion you belong to. She is lost to me and my heart breaks everyday. I miss her so much. In my eyes and heart she is and always will be my precious little girl.
