I disagree. Romney is a liar about everything he says. You may think he appeared liberal in Mass. That's because the Democrats overrode his vetoes over 800 times. He was against emergency contraception for rape victims.
He has it in for women big time. Back to 1950, criminalizing abortion, jailing women, personhood, forcing to bear rapists babies, defunding planned parenthood. There were no women or minorities at Bain.
His contempt for women and minorities is ingrained in him from his religion.
When asked the question on assault weapons ban; he went on a stupid irrelevant tirade about single mothers!
That comes from Momonism.
Women will be so screwed if this maniac gets elected
I disagree; you and Obama are liars about everything you say. Fool!

Read it twice.... don't see anything I object to.

You do know that after Romney wins the election, we're going to look into a lot of things. That's just one of those things.

Your ass is hanging out the window. If you don't win this election, things could get as bad for the Democrats as when the most prominent Democrat in the entire country aside from the sitting president was convicted while spying for the Soviet Union. It took the Democrats about 20 years to recover from that one.

You shouldn't have joined the enemy and helped them during the Cold War. We still remember that, and how you spit on the servicemen returning from Vietnam.
You haven't changed. And, your act isn't as good as you think it it.

Stop-and-frisk goes on trial
By BRUCE GOLDING

Posted: 12:31 AM, October 15, 2012

The NYPD’s stop-and-frisk tactics are coming under the gun.

An “unprecedented” court hearing begins today into allegations that cops have been unlawfully stopping minorities outside thousands of low-income apartment buildings in The Bronx.

Plaintiffs in the case are seeking a court order limiting enforcement of a 1991 anti-crime program called “Operation Clean Halls.”

Under the program — which targets illegal drug use and sales — landlords can ask the NYPD to patrol hallways and stairwells in search of nonresidents loitering there.

The Manhattan federal-court suit alleges cops are so “overzealous” that tenants have to carry ID just to do their laundry or visit neighbors.

Court papers also claim that legitimate guests are often arrested “because they only know their friend’s first name or nickname or know the apartment only by the location, rather than the number.”

The plaintiffs’ witnesses are expected to include a Columbia professor who has analyzed stop-and-frisk data and a representative of the Bronx District Attorney’s Office, which has refused to prosecute some trespassing cases without first interviewing the arresting officers.

Several people who got busted for allegedly trespassing outside “Clean Halls” buildings are also expected to take the witness stand.

New York Civil Liberties Union lawyer Alexis Karteron said the hearing — which is expected to last more than a week —“presents an important opportunity to end an aspect of the NYPD’s stop-and-frisk program that has plagued New Yorkers of color for far too long.”

“We will demonstrate that police officers are unlawfully stopping and arresting people on suspicion of trespassing simply because they happen to be in public areas near Clean Halls buildings,” Karteron added.

It’s one of three pending court challenges to the stop-and-frisk program, which Mayor Bloomberg and Police Commissioner Ray Kelly (right) credit with reducing crime.

All three cases are being overseen by Judge Shira Scheindlin, who recently ruled the program’s effectiveness is irrelevant to its constitutionality.

The Obama Administration cites the statistic that full-time working American women earn 77 cents for every dollar a man earns and claim this is the ‘wage gap’ as justification for the Lilly Ledbetter Act.
However, the statistic does not account for the number of hours per week women and men work on average. To a considerable degree, the ‘gender wage gap’ is more a ‘gender hours gap.’
Men are more likely to work more hours than women.
In 2009, 66.6 percent of American workers working less than 35-hour workweeks were women.
http://www.collegiatetimes.com/stories/20628/...
Hello? Is anyone there? Is anyone listening?
Obama is just trying to fool the easily fooled again. It's amazing he can do it so well.
"In other words, contrary to Angle's statement, wage disparity in America is a very big deal. A wage gap does exist and it affects millions of American women -- half the U.S. population in fact and more than half the U.S. labor force. It's folly to pretend it isn't important or it doesn't exist. But it's what conservative media have consistently tried to do.

Angle's conclusions become all the more suspect when considering the events of the past week.

As Reuters reported, a federal judge on September 21 dismissed Wal-Mart's motion to squash a wage discrimination suit brought by women in California.

The case "accuses the company of systematically discriminating against women -- who, according to the plaintiffs' experts, were paid less than men and promoted less often," reported the San Francisco Chronicle. The article added that the plaintiffs have charged "that all California store managers are required to attend training sessions where they are cautioned that women may not be qualified for promotion."

Wal-Mart is among the nation's largest employers and the majority of the sales associates employed in its stores are women.

Another federal judge on Tuesday allowed a gender bias lawsuit against Costco to go forward. The case has been brought on behalf of several hundred women employees. The suit alleges that the warehouse chain has a company-wide policy of "limiting promotions of female employees to assistant general manager and general manager by failing to post job openings."

On Monday, a Yale University study found that "Science professors at American universities widely regard female undergraduates as less competent than male students with the same accomplishments and skills." The article continued:

As a result, the report found, the professors were less likely to offer the women mentoring or a job. And even if they were willing to offer a job, the salary was lower.

When you see Homer again, ask him what he discovered about the communists in China taking control again. You do know that the army in China doesn't belong to the govenment, but it belongs to the communist party there, don't you?
Hu Jintao is the leader of the communist party in China. I wonder what he talked about with the White House when he was here. Perhaps Obama needed some "flexibility" he'll get after the election to do what China wants, too.

A Wisconsin lawmaker lost the endorsement of Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan on Thursday after he claimed that “some girls, they rape so easy.”
Freshman Rep. Roger Rivard told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that his comments, first made back in December to Chetek Alert newspaper, had been taken out of context.
The newspaper quoted him as saying his father warned him "some girls rape easy,” meaning girls could decide they regretted a sexual encounter and call it rape.
Seeking to clarify the remarks on Wednesday, Rivard again repeated them.
"He (my father) also told me one thing,`If you do (have premarital sex), just remember, consensual sex can turn into rape in an awful hurry,'" Rivard told the Journal Sentinel. "Because all of a sudden a young lady gets pregnant and the parents are madder than a wet hen and she's not going to say,‘Oh, yeah, I was part of the program.' All that she has to say or the parents have to say is it was rape because she's underage. And he just said,`Remember, Roger, if you go down that road, some girls,' he said,‘they rape so easy.'"
Hours later, Rivard’s camp issued a clarification to the clarification, calling rape a “horrible act of violence.”
But the backlash was quick and severe. Rivard, who is locked in a tight race with Democratic opponent Stephen Smith, lost the support of key Republican figures, including Paul Ryan.

You're probably right; here in my town they're only good for giving traffic tickets. They pull someone over and 3 cruisers arrive and 6 cops stand around chit chatting

Yet, two weeks ago, a group of men burst into Saks Fifth Ave at the Mall, smashed the jewellery cases, stole the jewels and took off in a black bmw. The store was open, the police station is 2 miles from the mall. They got away. No cops. Imagine that?

Wolf Blitzer after Tuesday's debate:

"When we dig deeper into the numbers, we're seeing Romney did score points with viewers tonight.

Look at this.

58% of debate watchers say Romney would better handle the economy. 40% say President Obama would. That's issue number one.

49% say Romney would better handle health care, compared to 46% for President Obama.

We also asked who would better handle the issue of taxes. 51% say Romney; 44% say President Obama.

59% say Romney would do a better job on the deficit. 36% say President Obama would do a better job on the deficit."

Thanks, Wolf!
