It's been a while between articles, but I'm never gone for long. The internet has a better chance of getting rid of me once Hell freezes over, and considering climate changes and global warming that will happen NEVER. And so lately I've been awful busy making cheese and selling door knobs, and in this economy it's just that much more difficult to sell door knobs made of cheese.
I hope your holidays are going well...better than mine.
Speaking of door knobs: did you know that the "new and improved" U.S. government is committed to helping single moms return to school? Obama allocated stimulus funds for education, and this has opened doors for mothers across the nation to get a better education.
I was reminded of that while reading the news on the web today. I came across this outrageously funny ad with it's out-of-place photo attachment (REALLY, the photo came with the ad). Naturally, being who I am, I felt the need to mock and alter it by adding some additional text and then write some brief commentary about my discovery. After all, 9 out of 10 Walmart greeters believe that the 'Moms Return to School' Government Grant is a great idea.
Why...teenage moms, single moms, stay-at-home moms, back-to-school moms, alcoholic child-abusing moms...even bearded moms can return to school with all that stimulus money floating around.
Now all moms, Alabama and beyond, will have a fighting chance for a higher paying job as soon as the economy rebounds from the edge of economic oblivion. It's high time for a makeover too, you've let yourself go a bit there, mom.
When the economy does bounce back (which it always does..it bounces so very high, you might not be able to catch it once again..because in a class-based system you'll find lots of dangling rubber carrots), you super-duper hyper qualified workers are going to be in big demand.
So completing a degree at community college is going to put mom in a prime position to get her ultimate job...and still paid 15-40 percent less than her male counterparts. Happy studying!
