I know, I was being ironical .

In 2013, this is a bona fide example of racism.

Pretty much just proof that no matter what you say, someone will take offence to it. I wouldn't worry about it. I think you just made a fair point, and someone tried to back out of defending their point by branding you racist. Classic internet.
Lmao I didn't try to back out of defending anything.
I think it's funny that everyone wants to criticize other countries all of the time.
It reminds me of politicians who criticize the workings of the economy, human rights, or other things in Europe for example, when some of the things they mentioned work much better than they do here.

It seems to me that people don't like change, which is fine. And my argument is not that any change is better than no change, but rather that positive change and recognition of stay-at-home and non-working moms is better than ignoring them.

I think that it is interesting, also, that many of the critics seems to be male, non-married, without children, republican or more than one of the above.

On that note, I'm not saying that the change will be great, what I was commenting on was the recognition of those who are generally ignored.

Thank you for your assumptions, everyone, that I was attempting to change the subject!

Well, this is a bunch of jumbled statements. I have no idea why someone being single childless male republicans nerfs their criticism, or how this bizarre extension of state pensions to stay-at-home mothers means the government isn't ignoring them.



The above graph is the most perfect summary of why pensions, in Venezuela at this time, are meaningless.

I'd love to hear a single person refute the many valid and relevant points made in this thread about this law and its numerous pitfalls.
