Jim's Rant For The Day. Caballero (Repost)

The Spanish word for gentleman is “caballero” from the root word “caballo” meaning horse. Thus a gentleman is a man with a horse, a nobleman that can afford a horse and mobility, much the opposite of a peasant.


Wouldn’t it be more honest if the English language had such a word for a high classed single parent. Such a word would differentiate him/her from a peasant single parent, that being one with no car or an undependable car; no permanent dependable baby sitter; ready supply of cash for commuting to work or gas – and therefore one without the possibility of ever having a steady job. Maybe it's time that we can be honest about the hell our current economic system puts some people through. Let’s call it what it is.
