Roosevelt often used the word "bully" as an adjective meaning superb/wonderful. The Bully Pulpit features news, reasoned discourse, opinion and some humor.

Who's the Boss?

(Fox News) - While many women have equality in American households, or may even be the bosses, women in other cultures often struggle against male domination. But now there is a town being planned in China where women would be the bosses — by law.

The Chinese government plans to spend almost $70 million to develop a tourist destination where the motto would be: "Women never make mistakes, and men can never refuse women's requests."

The rules would state that women make the decisions on shopping and lodging questions — and basically everything else. If a man objects, he would be subject to punishment such as, "kneeling on an uneven board," whatever that is, or sentenced to washing dishes in a restaurant.

And of course, they'd have to learn the Chinese words for "Yes dear, whatever you say dear."
