    Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) compared paid family leave to dog breeding on Twitter and in congressional hearings on Tuesday, claiming that dogs are granted more time with their puppies than parents are given with their newborn babies.

    In the video, Ocasio-Cortez says, “Um, do we know how long puppies are allowed to stay with their mothers after a dog has given birth?”

    “Uh, eight weeks,” Ocasio-Cortez said with an attitude. “So, the market has decided that women and people who give birth deserve less time with their children than a dog and I think that that at its core has shown that the market has failed to treat people with dignity and with basic respect.”

    “And so when that happens, I think it’s our job as the public to redefine the rules of society and to peep, and to treat people who give birth with the dignity that they deserve,” Ocasio-Cortez concluded.

    How much more off base can she get? It seems like she practices that ability to drive around any real reasoning ability.
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
    . If you ain't havin' fun, it's your own damn fault

    That gal is a classic example of the old adage,
    "'Tis better to keep quiet and be thought a fool, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt."

    We get 6 weeks for maternity leave. Most women coworkers of mine take longer-they use sick leave or vacation time and take an extra couple of weeks or so. Plus, because of the nature of the job, most take off a couple of weeks before their due date so they don't start labor while in an awkward work situation (at some client's filthy house, for example).

    I don't have any coworkers who are complaining about the arrangement.
