  •  Sorry, after enduring the Governorship of (8+ / 0-)

    California under her husband, and seeing his antics and misbehaviors and delusions and attitudes, I can't take anything Maria Shriver might do on behalf of women seriously.  

    I'm really fed up with people that are congratulated and celebrated for their charities, good works, studies and programs for 'fixing' things after people in their own families and social set have done everything they can to break down and impoverish those same people they purport to 'help.'

    •  Have to agree (5+ / 0-)

      Maria Shriver may be acting with good intentions, but she's very much out of touch with the real world. Her approach to resolving problems she's  never experienced is patronizing and somewhat self serving.

      To attempt to address  the problems women face by enabling and elevating the ideas of leaders who helped cause widespread poverty and inequality is baffling.

      If cutting Social Security & Medicare benefits for low income seniors is what Democrats do after they win a budget standoff, I'd hate to see what they do after they lose one.

            Her mother, Eunice, was actually a fairly conservative Catholic, especially when it comes to women's issues.  Eunice was old school when it came to things like divorce, birth control, etc.

              I'm responding to the notion that the Kennedys are "out of touch with the real world" and operate with a "silver spoon mentality."

              You and I may disagree with her on the issues you cite, and we do, but "out of touch with the real world" or operating with a "silver spoon mentality" are about the last two criticisms one can legitimately make of her.
