Description : In Crunch Time, Aliya Hamid Rao gets up close and personal with college-educated, unemployed men, women, and spouses to explain how comparable men and women have starkly different experiences of unemployment. Traditionally gendered understandings of work--that it's a requirement for men and optional for women--loom large in this process, even for marriages that had been not organized in gender-traditional ways. These beliefs serve to make men's unemployment an urgent problem, while women's unemployment--cocooned within a narrative of staying at home--is almost a non-issue. Crunch Time reveals the minutiae of how gendered norms and behaviors are actively maintained by spouses at a time when they could be dismantled, and how gender is central to the ways couples react to and make sense of unemployment.

Description : Crunch Time to Save Our Constitution depicts the political environment and issues that evolved in the Obama era, as our nation accelerated intrusion of liberal doctrine throughout government and influenced the transition of our society to liberal mores, which had been fermenting since the San Francisco hippies of the early 1940s. With the unprecedented election of Trump, progressive Democrats were marginalized, hindering their indicated goal following installing some form of government apart from our Constitution. Crunch Time to Save Our Constitution traces the accomplishments of the Trump administration, irrespective of Democrat obstructionist stratagem—unjustified Mueller investigation, prolonging the Kavanaugh Supreme Court appointment—to deter President Trump from executing his statutory role, and why Democrats are compelled to continue and expand such tactics. This once great united nation has purposefully and effectively been divided in a manner that places conservatives and liberals on a course to revolution to satiate the thirst for political power. This political theater is displayed to a naive public subject to managed news, unperceiving of the internal threats to our republican form of government. Crunch Time to Save Our Constitution unmasks the true forces that are competing for political control of our government and the prime internal threats to our nation’s security. Crunch Time to Save Our Constitution provides bold actions to reunite our people, avoid a conflict among neighbors, and return to our Constitution and its values as our Founding Fathers intended.
