Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

It's all a ruse, leosnana. It's meant to sound grandiose but accomplishes nothing and, in fact, does more to hurt women in the workplace because now employers have to fear frivolous lawsuits.
The only difference between pay gap is in one's chosen profession.
Women who choose professions such as nurses and teachers make less than, say, men who choose business professions. That's just the way the ball bounces.
Every statistic proves men also work longer workdays and workweeks than women.
Numerous law firm websites (some of which I posted) all say there is only a 5 cent difference in women's pay when men and women work the same professions. 5 cents isn't exactly earth shattering.

What I think about Romney's Healthcare plan:

Apparently having the government between you and your doctor is unacceptable, but having a profit-minded insurance adjuster in the same position is perfectly ok. Death panels, rescission, lifetime limits, dropping coverage for the flimsiest of reasons and arbitrary denial of claims are all apparently examples of freedom in action provided that there is an unnecessary middleman making money out of the deal.

The goal of hospitals and insurance companies in America is to make a profit for their investors. Practicing medicine and insuring people is simply how they go about making that profit. If you run your hospitals and health insurance companies under the same principles as a factory that makes Blu-Ray players, then inevitably you have to make cuts and sacrifices in order to keep profits up and healthy. Except what inevitably gets cut is insurance coverage and what gets sacrificed are the patients.

The ACA essentially forces insurance companies to stop engaging in their worse practices, and in order to make up for any profits that insurance companies might lose by not engaging in monstrous behavior, it makes everyone in the country buy insurance. Is it perfect? Absolutely not. But since we have decided that healing people without somebody getting rich falls under the category of “blood-soaked, communist tyranny,” this is what we’re stuck with. If the Supreme Court is as clueless about health care as they are about campaign finance, then pretty soon we won’t even have that.

If the ACA goes down, I hope that the conservatives in America take a moment to think about what they are celebrating. It isn’t just about a defeat for Obama. It’s about going back to a health care system that has no business being in a country that so loudly declares itself to be Christian, or even in a country that claims to be civilized. But hey, freedom, freedom, and more freedom, right?

"False Rape Charges: More Common Than People Think"

Why would anyone falsely accuse another person of rape? The most common answer usually reveals some element of revenge, for something done to the accuser that she (or he, believe it or not,) is angry or enraged over. A study conducted on this subject in the Journal Archives of Sexual Behavior,(Vol. 23, No. 1, 1994,) reported that false accusers were commonly motivated by a need for an alibi or a desire for revenge.

Glad you moved on from your earlier ridiculous comments about crime that you are ignorant of.
During the MSNBC debate pre-game show on Tuesday night, Chris Matthews brought his usual measured approach to the Romney-Ryan abortion platform:

There's a grand canyon of difference between Obama, who's very pro-choice, and, for example, the Republican ticket this year, which would give 14th amendment rights, whatever that means, life, liberty, and property rights, to a fetus that had just been - or rather, an egg that had just been fertilized, right after sex, if you will. And to have that notion that that would be a person under this personhood thing that Ryan's pushing, and under the 14th Amendment rights, the platform that Romney's running on. This is extremism!...It's almost like Sharia. You're saying to the country, we're going to operate under a religious theory, under a religious belief. We're going to run our country this way, to the point of making a woman's decision to have an abortion, her reproductive rights, as criminal, perhaps murderous.The quote went largely unnoticed until Wednesday night, when it became the top trending story on Fox News online.

What about advising his son not to try to rape underaged girls? To respect his and their bodies? The father is obviously a pig and has no regard for women. The Republican way
"silly"
You on occasion can be very sick. Very sick.
I am a conservative and your statement above that republicans/conservative men are pigs with no regard for women. The republican way, is absolute bullmanure and it is offensive to millions upon millions. You lump deviant behavior with political belief. That is absolute bullmanure. Political leaning is not a factor. Liberals and conservatives and middle of the roaders may be sexual abusers.

"I believe that the free enterprise system is the greatest engine of prosperity the world’s ever known.
I believe in self-reliance and individual initiative and risk takers being rewarded."
What a load of reelection-inspired bullshit.
He believes all of this.
He also believes it's his duty to redistribute the wealth of others, keep them working as slaves and share the fruits of their labor with the less industrious.
