Unhappy Mothers Day Louisiana: State last for working mom's
 

mothersdayNot the kind of news you would want to hear or read about as Mothers Day nears.

But, here goes.

 

Of the fifty states and let's not forget about the District of Columbus, Louisiana is ranked smack last for "working moms".

In another survey from WalletHub, the state which is currently suffering from a $1.6B budget deficit, posseses a score that is not the type of present moms might want to receive.

But with women making up roughly half of the American labor force, the personal finance social network WalletHub conducted an in-depth analysis of 2015’s Best & Worst States for Working Moms.

In order to help ease the burden on an underappreciated segment of the population, WalletHub analyzed the attractiveness of each of the 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia to a working mother. WalletHub used 12 key metrics such as median women’s salary, female unemployment rate and day care quality rankings.

While most likely not very pleased, if anyone can gloat over the new stats, it might be the Louisiana Democratic Party. Last week, a House committee voted against an equal pay legislation with nine republicans opposing the measure.   

The state also ranked way below average for all but one of the criterion.

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
