    Being allowed to take care of your baby is an "entitlement" now? Unbelievable...anyone who thinks that should go take care of a newborn for 5 minutes and then come back and tell us how entitled they feel!

      but the right has made it that way. The word refers to something that is rightfully yours.

        but the idea that you can't get fired for taking care of your newborn just doesn't even seem to rise to that level IMO...it's not like anyone is giving you something, they just aren't allowed to do something that most people would agree is wrong.
