You are way above your head here! Answer two questions: The economy - when were we (the US) ever at an economic recession like the one George Bush faced in his last year of the presidency? What is the measure by which you can judge the recovery?
1. Look at ALL the stats yourself-I don't WORK for free.(unless I LIKE you and am doing a favor)

2. Forget that Bush recession crap--it doesn;'t cut it with thinking fols--because it stinks of lousy oboTIC point and blameDUHMness.

for the most part, yes....but as Homer would realize if he worked in business instead of government, there are other factors that enter into compensation....such as potential for future advancement, need to increase compensation to retain employee, etc.....

truth is that some businesses pay women and minorities more to attract them to meet quotas for government contracts....is that fair???...

not universally true....

in our business, clients often express a preference for one employee to work on their project in preference to another....this will inevitably affect compensation and create inequalities for the same position....

Homer probably thinks all school teachers should be paid the same, regardless of performance.....

I think they used to call that kinda thing-SMALL business...as in SELF reliance. Something that Romney is PROponent for!!!!!
Altho, because of my deep rooted values and ethics--I no doubt have been accused (vile witchhunters and pitchfork weilders SUCK)of being a little "difficult to work with" at times because of my beliefs in such though--ya know--finding that givverment entitleMENTALity stuff rather LAME and UNhealthy--most specifically for young people!
