When they say, "Peace and Security"
Many in the media blame President Trump. In an ocean of economic prosperity, the media has become a desert island full of cannibalistic savages, devouring each other, while praying to Mueller. That’s not because of anything Pres Trump did to the media. It’s about what he isn’t doing.
Obama’s divisive policies created social, cultural and economic insecurity across the spectrum. Trump’s politics have brought prosperity and economic security. And the media has refocused on stirring up insecurity among Democrats and Never Trumpers because they are its only remaining demographics.
However, a shrinking media however indicates that we are once again becoming an optimistic and confident nation.
The media’s loss of jobs is a very good thing. It’s a statement of confidence by Americans in America.

Aug 2, 2017, President Trump's senior adviser, Stephen Miller, had to give a history lesson to CNN's Jim Acosta. Miller informed Acosta that to become a naturalized U.S. citizen speaking English is already required. But, moreover the poem Acosta quoted was not on the original statue but was added later. “When the Goddess of Liberty was given to the United States (in 1886) its donor’s agenda was to burnish France’s republican roots after the oppressive reign of Napoleon III and to celebrate the two nations’ commitment to the principles of liberty,” the New York Times reported in 2011.

Mr Roth must move to apartment half the size of his current home of 1614 sq ft. According to the principle of communal solidarity, the allocations are made according to the number of inhabitants.

A Little Leaven
"Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump? Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us: Therefore, let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth."
2-14-19, * -- Jesus spoke of leaven and the wicked Pharisees. (Luke 12:1-2) In baking, a little leaven ["yeast"] about 2 teaspoons in appx 4 cups of flour will spread throughout making bread dough, causing the dough to rise in preparation for baking. It’s a perfect example of the spread of sin and wickedness throughout the human race. (Malachi 4:1) Since 1945 moral Godly values in America have declined sin and wickedness have increased. (2 Timothy 3:12-13) In 1973 the USA Supreme Court decided it was okay for a woman to kill her unborn child; Roe Vs Wade lawful abortion was born. Then in 2015 the Supreme Court said same sex marriage throughout the nation was also okay.  Most Americans now accept cursing the Lord's name, blasphemy, abortion, homosexuality, pre-marital sex, same sex marriage and all forms of wickedness.
For over 200 years America has been blessed as a moral example for the nations of the world. Nation after nation followed her good example; but now they follow her evil examples. Recently, to a cheering crowd, New York legalized the killing of full term abortion, nine month babies. The state of Virginia is following. [".....a little leaven, leaveneth the whole lump." 1 Corinthians 5:6]
As a nation and people America has no future! None! Wickedness of mankind is described of ancient Israel that perfectly describes America today. The Lord said: "Their feet run to evil, And they make haste to shed innocent blood: Their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity, Wasting and destruction are in their paths." Isaiah 59:7
Shall not the almighty righteous Creator God judge America for her wickedness and evil? He brought judgment upon His own "chosen people;" why wouldn't He bring it upon America, or upon the whole Christ rejecting world? True believers in Christ will be protected from His wrath as in ancient Israel (1 Kings 19:18) the Lord provided an escape for His prophet Elijah and during the plagues of Egypt. (Exodus 12:12; Revelation 2:24) Noah and his family also Lot and his daughters escaped destruction.
The Lord Himself told us to "watch" for the Lord's second coming (Mark 13:33, 37; Rev 3:3) watch for signs; many have been happening over the past few years and continue to happen. They’re pointing to the coming of the Lord to resurrect and rapture His believing children to glory; I think it’ll be this present year of 2019.
The rescue of God's people is right at the doors. (Matthew 24:32-33) A good chance that somewhere around SIXTY DAYS until our precious Lord and Savior is coming to rapture His believing saints to glory.

Aviv Barley, the Weather and the Head of the Year
Soon after the Aviv  barley was struck, YHWH [God] told Moshe and Aharon that “this month is the head of months for you; it is the first month of the year to you.” Exodus 12:2 This tells us that the first month of the year comes just after the barley matures in the Land; in year 2019 it'll occur on April 5, 2019.

THE WILTING GREEN NEW DEAL
What if green policies win out, but a natural climate cycle brings cold, not heat?
2-15-19, * -- New York Democrat’s Congresswoman, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez [aka AOC], the 29-year-old ditz apparently has become the face and voice of the Democrat Party. She and Massachusetts Dem Senator Ed Markey and friends are proposing a plan to ‘save the planet’ in their Green New Deal.
The most outrageous is eliminating air travel, replacing it with a high-speed light rail network. How fun it would be to be there to see AOC off on a train to Puerto Rico which would cross the deepest part of the Atlantic Ocean (27,000 feet). [..snip]
Although AOC's plan has received the endorsements of Democrat presidential candidates, like Senators Cory Booker and Kamala Harris, it’s turned the heads of others for its drastic approach to fighting the illusive and controversial ‘climate change:’
- Within ten years to completely move away from: oil, coal and natural gas
- Creating a high-speed rail system to help eliminate air travel
- Renovating every home in America
- On 2-10-19 Meet the Press, Sunday, AOC warned that global warming could lead to disaster in 12 years "millions and millions of people will die!”
- Fellow Democrat and presidential hopeful Corey Book said "It's "Bold," Like Defeating The Nazis Or Going To The Moon‘ the planet can’t sustain people eating meat’
2-7-19, Has this once-respectable political party [Democrat] of the working class gone collectively mad? It sure seems that way.
Reading the Green New Deal (GND) plan, put out Thursday by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Ed Markey, one is tempted to think it's not real, just a joke from the satirical "The Onion."
The individual planks in the plan, individually and collectively, sound like the rantings of someone who should be institutionalized, not like a rational political plan to solve a real problem. -- Investors.com
Riley Roberts Congresswoman Cortez's Boyfriend; on staff?
2-15-19, The Democrat Socialist waded into the issue in response to a tweet from Luke Thompson alleging boyfriend Riley Roberts had been put on staff. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is facing ethics questions after revelations the freshman lawmaker's office gave her boyfriend a congressional email account. Cortez claims her 'partner' needs access to her Google calendar ... Jason Chaffetz, former chairman of the House Oversight Committee, said Ocasio-Cortez' claims don’t stack up. It’s totally naïve and inappropriate – you wouldn’t allow it in most companies, let alone the House of Representatives. There should be real consequences.”
2-15-19, Twitchy -- In case you hadn’t already heard, Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is once again the center of attention.
And it’s once again for something that doesn’t make her look good.
See, National Review contributor and podcast cohost Luke Thompson has done a little digging, and he’s learned that AOC’s boyfriend Riley Roberts has a House.gov email address. How do you like that?
President Trump National Emergency Declaration
[Many other presidents have done so with no hooplaa ... but the media - well, you know]
2-15-19, Pres Trump Rose Garden - 49 min announcement of 'NATIONAL EMERGENCY' [he expects to go to court and win] and Spending bill - he even took a question from Jim Acosta ... he discussed North Korea and China plus...
National Emergencies Still In Effect Today
If Trump does declare a national emergency, not unusual there's been 58 since 1976 - currently 31 still in effect.
Democrat Pres Jimmy Carter Declared the First Natl Emergency:
According to ABC News, presidents have declared a total of 58 national emergencies since the National Emergencies Act (NEA) was first signed into law in 1976. Of those 58, 31 have been renewed on an annual basis and are therefore still in effect. New York University's Brennan Center for Justice reported that former President Jimmy Carter was the first to declare a national emergency under the NATIONAL EMERGENCY DECLARATION ACT [NEA].
- In 1917 President Woodrow Wilson was first to issue an emergency proclamation over the insufficiency of maritime tonnage to carry the products of the farms, forests, mines and manufacturing industries of the United States, to their consumers abroad and within the United States.
- In 1933 Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1933 declared emergencies without limiting their scope or duration, without citing the relevant statutes, and without congressional oversight.
- In 1976 under Pres Jimmy Carter, Congress passed the official National Emergencies Declaration Act; since then there's been 58 declarations by eight presidents; 31 still in effect.
1-13-19, Pres Trump's potential declaration of a national emergency for the security on the US southern border's not unusual or rare. During his presidency, Bill Clinton from January 1993 through January 2001, declared a national emergency 18 times, the Washington Post reported; many of declared sanctions on various foreign entities as a condemnation of their actions.
Obama Declared 13 National Emergencies - 11 Are Still Active ...
2-14-19, There are a lot of national emergencies going on. In fact, there are 31 active national emergencies declared under the National Emergencies Act. Bill Clinton used this authority appx 17 times.
President Trump has only used it three times so far.
7-11-17, For the second time in recent memory, rank-and-file NYPD officers turned their backs in a show of solidarity against Democrat Mayor Bill de Blasio.
Nov 7, 2017 - NY Mayor Bill de Blasio even before polls closed on election night, he showed he's setting his sights on a wider national stage. Two de Blasio campaign sources confirmed to POLITICO that he's been in discussions with advisors to establish a federal political action committee.
Soon the Wicked Will Be No More
“Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb. Trust in the Lord, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.”
2-2-19, * -- Christians all over America are appalled and sickened of what the wicked are doing. In New York a bunch of idiots cheered, whooping and hollering in glee over the right to kill babies right up to birth - clearly something is terribly wrong with the USA. Surely almighty God will punish evil doers and godly men and women will be the last to rejoice.
In Revelation 1:3, 21:3 we learn that born again believers [the Church] in Christ are in the business of reaching out to the lost for their repentance and salvation; we don't have glee over their pending punishment.
Our duty is to literally seek to and save the lost (John 10:7-9). The lost unrepentant sinner is described in Romans 1:28-31: “They did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient. Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful.”
God’s kids will be safely removed when His righteous judgment will be administered. Prophet Malachi 3:16-18 “… in that day when I make up My Jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him. Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth Him not.”
Our blessed hope is to live in joyous expectation of the Lord Jesus second coming.(Titus 2:13) God’s great purpose in His Church is to prepare a people to be His “kings and priests on earth” and to rule with Him. (Revelation 1:5-7; 1 John 5:18-20)
The wicked shall not endure; the future life of the born again believer in Christ will be as the Creator intended before the fall of Lucifer and his minions.  The believer in Christ will be in glory with the Lord forever.  We must not fret.
 Belivers/Saints will be saved: Matthew 7:13-14; John 3:16; Ephesians 2:8-10; 1 John 5:13-14; Revelation 3:5-9

Details of Border Deal Worse Than What Been Reported – Poison Pill in it
Hours to Read and Approve the 1.159 page Democrat New Spending bill
2-13-19, Washington Times -- Congress reveals details of huge spending bill -- 1,159 pages -- just hours ahead of shutdown deadline; approved by many Republicans.
2-14-19, Details of Border Deal was announced by a group of lawmakers led by Republican Sen. Richard Shelby and Democrat Rep. Nita Lowey, after a closed-door meeting on Capitol Hill. However, the Democrats slipped a “poison pill” into the deal that will prevent the 55 miles of wall or any wall from being built - reported by Ryan James Girdusky (@RyanGirdusky): pic.twitter.com/q2porHboEI
- Funds can only be used to make steel bollard design… no concrete wall, no prototypes. Same thing as what Bush and Obama built… just a little bit taller.
- The bill secures more than $3.1 billion in foreign health services, more than twice for the wall more than twice for the wall pic.twitter.com/2eIbweTl9V
- Sec. of DHS cannot increase border crossing fees. pic.twitter.com/5fDW6No9dI
- Border "Wall" construction is only allowed in the Rio Grande Valley Sector pic.twitter.com/xXE4BJFZdE
- The bill DOES expand Catch and Release by reducing the number of border beds from 49,060 to 40,520
- No funding for additional enforcement and removal field personnel. – that means no more ICE agents to deport people already in the country.
- Expands the Alternatives to Detention program from 82,000 to 100,000… so instead of housing family units at the border- they get moved into the interior where they almost always stay in the country permanently.
- Provides $40 million for additional ICE staffing dedicated to overall ATD case management, particularly for asylum seekers… so no new ICE agents, but money to ICE to help illegal aliens settle in a non-detention center in the country
- $3.4 billion in refugee assistance – $74 million more than last year
$4.4 billion in international disaster assistance – $100 million more than last year
- Does not eliminate any foundations that Trump wanted to get rid of including: The Asia Foundation, the U.S. African Development Foundation, the Inter-American Foundation, and the U.S. Trade and Development Agency
2-14-19, No line item veto power for Pres Trump that's a partial veto to cancel an individual provision or provisions - line-items - in spending, or "appropriations" bills, without vetoing the entire bill. Virtually every president since the 18th Ulysses S. Grant in 1876 has asked Congress for line-veto power. President Bill Clinton actually got, but did not keep it long. In 1996 Clinton signed the 1996 Line Item Veto Act and used it for the first time to cut three measures from an expansive spending and taxation bill. He it two more times in 1997, cutting one measure from the Balanced Budget Act of 1997 and two provisions of the Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997. Almost immediately, groups aggrieved by the action, including the City of New York, challenged the line-item veto law in court. In 1998, the US District Court for the District of Columbia declared the 1996 Line Item Veto Act unconstitutional and the Clinton administration appealed the decision to the Supreme Court. In a 6-3 ruling issued on June 25, 1998, the Supreme Court, in the case of Clinton v. City of New York upheld the District Court's decision, overturning the 1996 Line Item Veto Act as a violation of the "Presentment Clause," (Article I, Section 7), of the U.S. Constitution. However, by the time the Supreme Court took the power away from him, President Clinton used the line-item veto to cut 82 items from 11 spending bills.
Happy Valentine's Day!
Enter Father Valentine: he defied Claudius and secretly married young lovers; but his good deed of love was found out and Father Valentine was prosecuted he was executed by beheading. He is the man behind the holiday.
Almighty God has given mankind the wonderful gift of human love and sexuality that is blessed by God in marriage. However, don't be surprised if the 'gushing' love that you have for someone changes to something less "gushing" as the years pass in a marriage. Honor your vows be kind to one another - stay married!
America's Alot Like Noah & Lot’s Day
As it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. They ate, drank, married wives, until Noah entered the ark; the flood came and destroyed them all. Likewise as it was in the days of Lot; they ate, drank, bought, sold, planted and built; but the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven destroying them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.
2-3-19, * -- In today’s America everything is permissible; all manner of wickedness is accepted so long as it’s not Christian or conservative. Based on past historical events as outlined in God’s Holy Word; America is in mortal danger.
While it’s true that God’s longsuffering and would that none should perish (2 Peter 3:9-10), He’s not indifferent to mankind’s increasing wickedness. God is not powerless to act; just because He has not yet acted … doesn’t mean He will never act. Those who believe otherwise, subscribe to a form of lunacy known as normalcy bias. [..snip]
The Holy Bible reports that prior to the flood of Noah: “The Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil." (Gen. 6:5) Wickedness was worldwide and all of humanity lived unconstrained doing whatever they wanted. For 120 years Noah preached (Gen 6:3; 2 Peter 2:5) warning the people to get right or get left. The Lord instructed Noah, his family and the animals to enter the Ark when God sealed the doors behind them. The deep opened up, the rains began to fall and soon the whole of creation went to a watery grave.
Several centuries after the Great Flood, a man named Abraham with his nephew Lot settled in the land of Canaan. Over time Lot settled on the lush plains of Jordan called Sodom & Gomorrah (Gen. 13:10-12). Eventually Lot’s community became a hotbed of wickedness. After God’s warning to Abraham and negotiations about how many would be saved from Sodom & Gomorrah … only Lot and his two daughters were saved. [Gen. 18:25, 19:22]
Currently in America, New York just legalized abortions of human babies up to and including full term nine month old fully formed infant. On the heels of this sickening news, the state of Virginia offered up legislation allowing the killing of babies as they’re being born. This is murder and like child sacrifice of old ‘Paganism’ utilizes the powers of the State, particularly the law and the courts. Yes, it's child sacrifice for the woman’s pleasure.
Now in America there’s a pro-Israel, pro-life and pro-Christian President in the White House and as Israel celebrated its 70th year of rebirth. The 'end time' clock is ticking as the attacks on President Trump and Christians have become a full-out assault from the demonic realm (Eph. 6:12) as Satan knows his time is running short ... he no longer has the luxury of subtlety.
If God punished the wicked in Noah’s and Lot’s day, rescuing a few, how can we doubt He’ll do it again?

Warsaw, Poland Arab Conference:
US VP Mike Pence & US Sec State Mike Pompeo
With Arab Nations and Israel Advancing Their Common Interests Combating Iran
2-13-19, US Sec of State Mike Pompeo in Warsaw Poland along with US VP Mike Pence and many Arab foreign ministers - including Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu; Asia, Africa, the Western Hemisphere, Europe and the Middle East. Pompeo announced the summit in an interview with Fox News on Friday, 2-8-19 saying the international summit is meant to promote stability and freedom in the Middle East and will focus on Iran’s regional influence. He said: "We'll bring together dozens of countries from all around the world. Countries will all come together to focus on Middle East stability and peace and freedom and security here in this region, and that includes an important element of making sure that Iran is not a destabilizing influence."
Pompeo is currently on a tour of the Middle East, with stops in Egypt, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Oman and Kuwait. On Thursday, he gave a speech in Cairo in which he was highly critical of Iran.
2-13-19, The Jerusalem Post -- Israel's PM Netanyahu to take part in a US-Polish sponsored conference. He said the summit will unite many countries in the world -- and in the region -- against Iranian aggression and its desire to conquer the Mideast and destroy Israel. The two-day conference in Warsaw will focus largely on what US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo referred to last month as Iran’s “destabilizing influence” in the region. He said: "This is a very important international conference in Warsaw. The focus is Iran. This brings together Israel, the US, and countries in and beyond the region."
Prime Minister Netanyahu met with Oman's foreign minister, Yousef bin Alawi ahead of the opening of a 60-nation conference on Middle Eastern regional stability in Warsaw. Alawi told Netanyahu, "There's a new era in the Middle East; the People in the Middle East have suffered a lot by sticking to the past. Now we are saying this is a new era for the future and for the prosperity of every nation.”
Netanyahu said: "I'm happy to meet you again. The courageous decision of Sultan Kabos to invite me to visit Oman brings about a change in the world. It paves the way for many others to do what you said -- not to be stuck in the past but to advance into the future." More here
October 2018, Times of Israel -- Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife made secret trip to Oman; it was the first by an Israeli leader in over two decades, and a sign of warming ties between the Jewish state and the Sunni Arab world. The “official diplomatic visit” to Muscat, Oman included a meeting with Sultan Qaboos bin Said who said: “The Prime Minister’s visit is a significant step in implementing the policy outlined by Prime Minister Netanyahu on deepening relations with the states of the region while leveraging Israel’s advantages in security, technology and economic matters,” ...

Apple demands Natural News stop writing about abortions or Satanism; threatens to block Natural News app from all Apple devices
Also, with the push for human infanticide in many US states and the legalization of the serial killing of infants, tech giants like Apple are serving as the censorship “speech police” to silence all criticism of the gruesome, barbaric inhumane practice.
In threatening Natural News over our coverage of infanticide and abortions, Apple is staking out the position of being pro-infanticide, and anyone who dares to speak up for innocent children is deemed by Apple to be engaged in “hate speech.” More here

Texas Senator Ted Cruz - "El Chapo in Prison; Use Confiscated $22 Billion of His Cash Proposal for Border Security Wall"
2-13-19, FoxNews -- The Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz urging his colleagues to pass the Ensuring Lawful Collection of Hidden Assets to Provide Order Act – or El Chapo Act – which would divert drug proceeds from cartel bosses to fund border security. The Sinaloa drug cartel boss 'El Chapo' was convicted on drug trafficking, weapons violations and money laundering charges in a federal courtroom in Brooklyn, N.Y. sentenced to life in prison. Cruz tweeted: “America’s justice system prevailed today in convicting Joaquín Guzmán Loera, aka El Chapo, on all 10 counts. U.S. prosecutors are seeking $14 billion in drug profits & other assets from El Chapo which should go towards funding our wall to #SecureTheBorder.”

El Chapo Prison in Colorado: Alcatraz of the Rockies "ADX"
Florence, Colorado: Why there'll be no escape for El Chapo in 'the prison of all prisons’ known as the "Supermax"
2/13/2019, Mexican drug lord El Chapo will be spending the rest of his life at America’s most notorious prisons – to ensure he never escapes again. The convicted drug smuggler, whose real name is Joaquin Guzman, has a record of two previous jailbreaks. Reportedly "Administrative Maximum Facility" (ADX) has more security than any other prison in the USA. Its extreme approach to prison is effective having no design for rehabilitation for its dangerous inmates. All inmates are men; many are Muslim terrorists.
God’s Perfect Plan for Woman & Motherhood
“Who can find a virtuous woman? Her price is far above rubies. The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land. Strength and honor are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come. She looketh well to the ways of her household and eateth not the bread of idleness. Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.”
5-8-2005, * – My aim is to honor women homemakers and mothers as they glorify the Lord Jesus Christ Who designed, created and blessed it by His incarnation in His virgin Mother Mary’s womb. I am encouraging the millions of women who believe that God’s call on your life is marriage, the joyful support of a husband and children in your Christ centered and treasured home. You who have a vision of home-management, the creation of a beautiful and simple place called a “home” for the family. It's a refuge of Christ’s peace and launching pad for God’s righteousness. The world does not understand these things.
This is a very high and holy calling that many of you embrace, with little of the world's understanding or encouragement. Often your life choice is scorned. You are the ones who have heard Titus 2:4-5 not as oppressive, but as liberating. In 2 Timothy 3:14-15 we see two things the Apostle Paul was talking about:
1. Eunice and Lois [2 Timothy 1:5] Paul already connected Timothy’s faith with what he learned from his mother and grandmother.
2. A person’s godly mother is a great incentive to holding fast to God's truth in the scriptures. One of the ways to strengthen your faith and persevere through hard times and not give up on your faith in the Lord is to remember what your godly Mother taught you.
What I owe my mother for my soul, my love for Christ, my role as a husband, father and pastor is incalculable.
Again I want to honor and to encourage women who embrace the Biblical calling of marriage, motherhood and home management for Christ and His kingdom. I am celebrating the beautiful lives of women who buck the tide of modern day feminism with love and care for their families and homes; you are indeed ‘virtuous women.’

Not ‘All Americans’ Are ‘Proud That We Have More Women in the Workforce than Ever Before’
Getting women to leave homemaking for the workplace has been one of the central goals of modern feminism; who considers women who eschew a career to take care of their home, their children and their husband to be less than women who place a career first. They have been brainwashed!
We know why Democrats cheer; they want women to eschew homemaking and time with children in favor of work outside the house; but why did conservative Republicans stand up and cheer? They’re afraid of being depicted as ‘sexist’ and ‘misogynist.’
Believe it or not, there are still many women and men who do not agree women are better off out earning a living with a career than staying home with their children. When a woman works outside the home, devoting full time to home and family is impossible. So, yes, more women than ever are in the workplace; but before we stand and cheer, it is worth asking:
1. Are women happier today?
2. Are families doing better today?
3. Are marriages happier with wives at home or in the workplace?
4. Do young people grow up happier and better-adjusted with mothers at home or with mothers in the workplace?
5. Is society’s emphasis on work and career inhibiting more young women from marrying and having children?
6.Is society better off or worse off when a record number of women leave home to enter the workplace?
Women, work, husbands and children; the return of the stay-at-home mother
4-19-14, The Economist -- The increase of stay-at-home mothering sits oddly with a second big trend affecting women’s lives: their relative success in the labor market = their so called 'careers.' In 1967 the share of mothers who did not work outside the home stood at 49%; by the turn of the millennium it had dropped to just 23%. According to new data crunched by the Pew Research Center, the proportion of stay-at-home mothers has been rising steadily for the past 15 years. Women have found it's expensive to work outside the home and her salary wasn't that big a help to the budget; she is worn out and nobody was happy. More here
