Wives, save yourselves from your unemployed husbands!

Otherwise your husbands will start abusing you. That , according to the psychologist of the Senate, Harry Reid. Yesterday Harry Reid got up and tried making a case for the job creation package  by stating:

“I met with some people while I was home dealing with domestic abuse. It has gotten out of hand,” Reid said. “Why? Men don’t have jobs.”

He adds that “Women don’t have jobs either, but women aren’t abusive, most of the time,” he said.

So if a man has a paycheck he won’t beat his wife? And going with this theme, with the unemployment rate being about 10% and let’s say half of  them are women (who don’t beat their husbands) that means 5% of the population (which then would be men) beat their wives?

But I guess Harry Reid speaks from experience, when it comes to beating up people. He had a nasty habit of actually beating on his father-in-law back in the day when he was dating his soon-to-be wife.

Reid was recounting to Rob Reiner on stage one day about how he met his wife:

“My wife is Jewish. I am not sure if I had ever met a Jewish person before. Her parents were initially happy, because I was a football player, a boxer, and student body president. They were happy until things got serious. Then it all changed. Her father would not stop trying to break us up. Eventually, it got to the point where things happened. ‘Physical things’ happened.”

“We then eloped. Her parents said shiva (prayers of mourning), but then they were supportive. Once we were married, they decided to sit back and see if it would work. I had a good relationship with my father in law, and having to physically beat him up was “one of those things that happened.” (tygrrrexpress.com)

But I’m guessing, based upon Reid’s own statement, come November when he loses the election in Nevada that his father-in-law better go duck for cover.

But enough of the brawling  ;)…. what about Reid’s fact gathering? He said that he’s seen in Nevada an increase in domestic abuse and it coincides with the uptick in unemployment.

Between 2007 and 2008 there were nearly 36,000 who sought services from the domestic violence programs in Nevada. But in 2008-2009 the number of cases increased to 37,495. So where’s the “out of hand” upsurge he’s talking about?

Is he talking about the ONE that might be added come November?
