Very Bad Day

Idea

International experts are tallying the economic costs of “A Day Without a Woman”, but global economists fear that if every working woman in America walked out for one day, the U.S. gross domestic product would take a $21-billion hit.

The figure doesn’t even count the labor of love from mom and grandmothers' unpaid job contributions, which aren’t factored into the GDP but would make the sum painfully higher.

Women’s annual share of our nation’s GDP amounts to $7.6 trillion. That’s greater than the $5.2-trillion GDP of Japan, which has the world’s third-largest economy.

A Day Without a Woman

Announcement
Images: 

Each and every year March 8 is the one day meant to tout all the social, economic, cultural and political successes of women while urging more gender equality.

The first women's day was in 1909 when 15,000 women marched through the streets of New York demanding improved pay, shorter hours and voting rights.

Make America Mate Again

News

American adults had sexual relations about nine fewer times per year in the early 2010s compared to the late 1990s in data from the nationally representative General Social Survey, 1989–2014.

The Archives of Sexual Behavior found that US adults are having less sex than they did during the 1990s. Who will make America mate again? https://t.co/2bILnWDrGe

Women’s March Protest Causes ‘Burden on Parents’ http://freebeacon.com/politics/womens-march-protest-causes-burden-parents/

Racial Bias Blow

Issue

The US Supreme Court has dealt a legal pushback and a big blow to racial bias in criminal cases, making it easier to unwind all convictions of defendants whose jurors show personal prejudices during their deliberations.

Justice Anthony Kennedy joined the court’s four liberal members in limiting the scope of Colorado’s “no impeachment rule,” which is designed to protect the finality of verdicts and the secrecy of deliberations.

Free Pancakes All Day

Idea

Do you like to eat free pancakes for breakfast? What about enjoying them all day today?

What would you say about an annually established practice of free pancakes and supporting a good cause?

This is a great way to start Tuesday as IHOP is hosting its 12th annual National Pancake Day, giving away free pancakes across all 50 U.S. states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico from 7A to 7P.

Lucky For US?

Problem

Is it too early to start getting tired of winning, Mr. President? You vowed “We're going to win so much you may even get tired of winning. And you'll say 'please, please it's too much winning. We can't take it anymore." https://youtu.be/daOH-pTd_nk

When can we expect your campaign promise of “make America great again,” POTUS?

What appears to be abundantly clear is that Trump has his work cut out. A new ranking of the best countries on earth shows The USA has just fallen to seventh place.
