good point, have no proof...but I will tell you that in many companies women and minorities are not held to the same performance standards and are among the last to be laid off......
Again, I would like to see some proof. I would put that down as being unfair but maybe payback for a couple thousand years of male dominance. I think the white male is more apt to be promoted.

NEW YORK, N.Y.- A conservative scholar behind a high-grossing documentary film that condemns President Barack Obama is under investigation by the evangelical college he leads over a report he took a woman who is not his wife to an event on Christian values.
The King's College board announced the review on Tuesday, the day the conservative Christian newsmagazine WORLD reported event organizers had confronted Dinesh D'Souza about sharing a hotel room with a woman he introduced as his fiancee. D'Souza filed for divorce from his wife, Dixie D'Souza, a few days after the conference, California court records show.

Obama's earpiece and wireless tranmitter (Teleprompter light) worked well last night, but not good enough. It failed in the first debate.

Romney doesn't use one.

Why is Obama losing?

So if I own bunch of stores, I invest in buildings, employees, merchandize that might or might not get sold & get taxed at the corporate rate of 35% on my profits.
Romney buys pieces of paper & pays 15% on those profits when he sells.
So yes, lets not encourage people to start businesses that actually makes a product & provides services. Lets instead reward the paper traders.
The CEO of Sears gets his salary taxed as in the top bracket.
Romney as CEO of Bain got taxed at 15%.
This is fair?
A home builder build a home & sells it for a profit that he would pay corporates rates. Others buy a home & resell it for more & pay 15%.
This is fair?
I have news. Unless that stock is purchased from that company, you are not investing in that company, they get nothing when you buy stock from outside sources.
I would like to see the link of when Romney was CEO at Bain that he was taxed 15%-link it up.

I just read the transcript of Obama's speech in the Rose Garden. He did refer to terrorism, but he did not say that it was a terrorist attack. He refered to religious intollerance, which would refer to the video because the video was against their religious leader. Now if he knew that it was a terrorist attack:
1) why did he then go on a talk show instead of dealing with the situation?
2) why did he then change the story to it being about a video?
3) why didn't he secure the crime scene and get people in there to investigate?
4) why did he allow his administration to continue to blame a video?
It's actually worse for him that he DID know that it was an act of terrorism and the only thing that he did about it was to invent a cover-up.
I caught that too. Talking heads were arguing about semantics, but the voter watching went say what. OBama are you now saying it was act of terrorism w/in first 24 hours?

This is probably the truth that both Obama and the St Dept knew it was a terrorist attack within the first 24 hours.

Good question then is why did he LIE and blame it on a video for over a week?

Female employees in the Obama White House
make considerably less than their male

According to the 2011 annual report on White
House staff, female employees earned a median
annual salary of $60,000, which was about 18
percent less than the median salary for male
employees ($71,000).
Calculating the median salary for each gender

The Obama campaign on Wednesday lashed out
at presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney for
his failure to immediately endorse the Lilly
Ledbetter Fair Pay Restoration Act, a
controversial law enacted in 2009 that made it
easier to file discrimination lawsuits.
President Obama has frequently criticized the
gender pay gap, such as the one that exists in
White House.
“Paycheck discrimination hurts families who lose
out on badly needed income,” he said in a July
2010 statement .“And with so many families
depending on women’s wages, it hurts the
American economy as a whole.”
It is not known whether any female employees
at the White House have filed lawsuits under the
Ledbetter Act. Bonus!

That's what I said; take the money influence out of politics so they can do the work of the people.
No one needs an assault weapon that can rapid fire 30 rounds. The criminals outarm the police.
It is often said that guns, particularly assault rifles, are designed for one thing, and one thing only: to kill lots of people.

Assault rifles in the United States are failing miserably in this purpose. There are tens of millions of assault rifles in America. Because the definition of an assault rifle has been rather fuzzy, the number can be said to be anywhere from 10 million to 30 million. Of those, the AR-15 type is fairly common with numbers between 5 and 10 million.

The FBI murder statistics do not differentiate between types of rifles. There are about 100 million rifles in the United States. In 2009, the last year in which numbers have been reported, there were 13,636 murders. Guns were used to murder 9,146 people. Hands and feet were used to murder 801 people. Blunt objects were used to murder 611 people. Rifles were used to murder 348 people, and that is all rifles, of which assault rifles are only a small fraction. Assault rifles are used so infrequently in homicides that many police departments almost never see them; in 2009, there were nine states that did not have a single murder committed with any rifle.

So why is the left so intent on banning rifles that are the most suitable for militia use (clearly protected by the U.S. Constitution), when they are used so rarely in murder? Banning baseball bats would make more sense, yet would be nearly as senseless.

Carol wouldn't know that I have ALREADY called out the republicans for many of their hypocrisies for attributing vile behavior ONLY to democrats when they themselves are guilty of that very same behavior.

Hell, I fought with the entire thread at The Bates Motel over this! And am now proud to be considered An Outlaw!

And, yes, I am proud to be considered as such.

Not a republican. An Outlaw!!!! Lol!! ;
