Bah, most Republicans won't leave the house for less than 100K, they'll just live off their inheritance or sell some more property, dump some stock, or if in real dire straits sell some of their (gulp)gold.

our company requires new employees to agree, as a condition of employment, to be willing to accept temporary assignments and relocations, including overseas assignments....some might say this tends to discriminate against women.....what does Homer think???....

Okay, look, I'm not naive. I know that even the plainest of things can't possibly get through to the Romney campaign and the conservative base. But hey, that's a good thing! The more time they spend in a tizzy over "act of terror" ≠ "act of terror," the longer they'll look like fools trying to politicize the deaths of Americans who died in the service of their country. Meanwhile, Barack Obama will continue to look like something Mitt Romney simply isn't: a president.

Yeah, sure. Just like Obama destroyed Al Queda. The only azzzed Obama kicked to the curb was the four dead American Patriots who were in the Libyan Embassy that were send home in caskets, dirtbagger.

<quoted text>Yo, Jimmy. What's up with the childish name calling? And, no. Obama is not changing policies. Romney, on the other hand, has hardly been consistent.
That's putting it mildly.
I'd say he's a fkn liar that will say anything to get his way.
Like most azzholes who never had a real job.
Anybody could buy a business, bankrupt it, fire all the workers, cancel their pensions, and move it to china.
All you need is the seed money.
He got that from his daddy, not working.

re-thinking your question....my response is that each person is judged as an individual, and gender is not a factor in salary...nor is there a need for equality of salary between any two employees even if they perform the same function....
Sounds great, maybe someday the rest of the country will catch on. Homer all about the individual.

the required skills and demands of some jobs are such that $100K is a minimum requirement....otherwise just get a government job, sit around all day, have a boatload of holidays, stay home when it snows, and collect a huge pension at early retirement....

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.
