The biggest ever global picture of children’s well-being, education and family life has been assembled into a series of maps by the University of California, Los Angeles. "When you look at a map, everyone's eyes go straight to where they live," says Dr Jody Heymann, director of the university's World Policy Analysis Centre. In the US, they might be surprised to see how unusual it is not to have a statutory right to maternity pay. Source: World Policy Analysis Centre, Adult Labour Database www.childrenschances.org

Up until a few short decades ago, America was the paradigm of opportunity and success until the liberals got into power and dragged us down to the lowest common denominator. How did they do this? By creating a constituency dependent upon their handouts. Instead of creating opportunity, they created despair. Odd isn't it that conservatives are those considered cold-hearted.
There were always poor and there will always be poor, but making sure enough stay that way to ensure their vote is hard work. With the media's help, liberals appear to have been up to the task. Now we have 50mil on food stamps and public subsidy, with an ever increasing demographic crossing our border. The land of opportunity is dead and unceremoniously buried through the greed of the labor unions, big business and their partners in Congress.
