RUSH: From CBS Eyeball News Atlanta: "Childless couples have happier marriages, says a new study. Researchers at the Open University in the United Kingdom --" That's the name of it, Open University, UK. "-- interviewed and surveyed over 5,000 people and found that men and women without children are more satisfied with their relationships; they are also more likely to feel valued by their partner," if there aren't any kids running around. The participants included people of all ages, statuses, and sexual orientation.
"'Saying "thank you" and giving compliments emerged as one of the most important factor in keeping a relationship healthy across all groups.'" Saying "thank you" and giving compliments. "Researchers also found that women without children were the least happy with life overall, however they did find that mothers were happier than any other group."
So let's read that sentence again and get an idea here of trying to figure this out. Researchers found women without children were the least happy with life, and they found that mothers -- that would be women with children, for those of you in Rio Linda -- were happier than any other group. Okay, what are we to make of this? Women with children, mothers, were happier than any other group, but couples without children have the happier marriages.
"The researchers were also able to determine that people who had been in a long-term relationship before were more likely to know how to sustain their next one." Practice makes perfect. This thing is just full of contradictions. Long-term relationship, but yet here's another one. Well, what happened to the first long-term relationship? Busted up. Probably had something to do with the kids.
"Dr. Jacqui Gabb, a senior lecturer in social policy at the Open University and lead author on the study told the Daily Telegraph: 'This is a shift away from the idea that they are just failed relationships to be put in a cupboard and forgotten about. It shows they have learnt something through them, therefore it can be an enriching experience.' The one big difference researchers found between men and women were that mothers more twice as likely to say their children are the most important person in their lives while fathers said it was their partner."
So let's take that. The one big difference, mothers twice as likely to say their kids are the most important people in their lives. Men, the fathers, say their wife is, their partner. Yeah, can't say wife. Partner. Yeah, it could be the mistress, or it could be the husband and the husband. Yeah, yeah, just be careful here. But overall, couples without children have happier marriages. Okay, so that's the headline, that's what people are gonna see. Now, would you also conclude that there is a basic assault on tradition? There's an assault worldwide, culturally, western civilization, on traditional customs, such as marriage? There's no question about it. There's an assault on traditional marriage. And now, couples without children have a happier marriage. Don't have kids.
Well, couple that with the global warming people. Humanity is the greatest problem the earth faces. Speaking of that, let's move on, shall we? (interruption) Well, you want to keep talking about that? Am I saying couples without children have happier marriages? Well, it's based on interviews. I'm not gonna sit here and dispute it. I'd have to assume that everybody in the survey is lying, so I'm not gonna argue with it. It's in the media. I just know that the traditions, the institutions that have given western civilization its guardrails, its morality, its definitions of right, everything's under assault.
The takeaway here is stay away from kids. Do not have kids. Get an abortion. However you want to take this and manifest it or extrapolate it politically. To me, this is a political survey. It's a political story. It has a political agenda attached to it. It's a political outcome. I look at everything in the media as being political. When the left is behind it, when academia is, there is no doubt in my mind that it is political.
Here's another finding from this study. "'LGBQ participants (lesbian, gay, bisexual and queer) are more generally positive about and happier with the quality of their relationship and the relationship which they have with their partner,' the research concludes. 'Heterosexual parents are the group least likely to be there for each other, to make couple time, to pursue shared interests, to say "I love you" and to talk openly to one another.'"
Now, when I add that, does it kind of add up? Okay. See, there's a method to my madness. I give you the stuff that's related to the headline and then tell you what's in the whole story if you read it all. So couples without children have happier marriages, and then we learn that lesbian, gay, bisexual are more generally positive about and happier with the quality of their relationship and the relationship which they have with their partner. Heterosexual parents are the group least likely to be there for each other. The less likely to make couple time, to pursue shared interests. Heterosexual couples the least likely to say "I love you" and to talk openly to one another.
Now, if any of that's true, could it possibly be because there are kids in the mix? And once you throw kids in the mix, the wife cares most and always about them, and the husband becomes a necessary evil? And yet to the husband, the wife remains atop the pedestal throughout. And with lesbian, gay, bisexual relationships, not all of them have kids.
So, you see, ladies and gentlemen, do not ever doubt me when I tell you even some of the most innocent, innocuous, apolitically sounding stories are nothing but pure politics. And of course nothing but pure leftist politics. This is nothing more than an assault on heterosexual marriage, heterosexual relationships, as a means of promoting gay marriage and gay relationships and gay relationships with children. And that's the agenda. And when I said, "Don't forget that the environmentalist wackos, they maintain that the fewer people on earth, the better for earth."
So back to our old friend here, the Independent Journal Review, a local newspaper. The Democratic party has found a new consequence of climate change and global warming. Are you ready? "Representative Barbara Lee and twelve other House Democrats issued a resolution stating that climate change can cause food and water shortages, which could lead impoverished women to turn to prostitution as a means of income." And so, global warming leads to prostitution because, to Democrats, women are so helpless, if the government's not there for 'em, particularly single women and single mothers, if the government isn't there for them, they are so helpless, that if it gets so hot, their only option is to sell themselves. And that is a resolution from 13 members of Congress.
The resolution states, "[I]nsecure women with limited socioeconomic resources may be vulnerable to situations such as sex work, transactional sex, and early marriage that put them at risk for HIV, STIs, unplanned pregnancy, and poor reproductive health. More broadly, the resolution says climate change will hurt 'marginalized' women, such as refugees --" We gotta let a female refugees in America. You may not know that. "-- sexual minorities, adolescent girls, and women and girls with HIV. It also cites Hurricane Katrina as evidence of how climate change can affect women, noting that the storm displaced 'over 83 percent of low-income, single mothers' in the region," who I guess moved to Houston and became prostitutes. According to Barbara Lee, what does displaced mean? Hurricane Katrina's in New Orleans. Everybody knows that New Orleans camped up and moved over to Houston, and according to Barbara Lee, the women that moved became prostitutes 'cause they were displaced and had no socioeconomic foundation.
"The purpose of the resolution was to call on Congress and the President to 'recognize the effects on women, and to use "gender-specific frameworks in developing policies to address climate change."'" Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton is out there saying that women are hanging by a thread. Hillary Clinton is saying it's almost over for women unless drastic action is taken, in the midst of our entire culture becoming chickified. Hillary Clinton is now saying that it's almost over for women, that they're so mistreated, they are such second-class citizens in our culture today, that they are used and abused and so poorly thought of that unless drastic action is taken at the government level, women, as we've come to know them, are going to be forever and unalterably discriminated against and changed. This is Hillary Clinton.
What an absolute mess these people make of things. Every day, folks, it's like diving through a Dumpster trying to get out, and they just keep throwing more garbage on us. And we're swimming up there and we're almost out of the Dumpster, we're almost out of the filth and the garbage and they come dump on us again, every day, folks.
