<quoted text>How about all the police who while away hours ensnaring sex offenders on line or those who operate radar or visual speed and seat belt traps. How about the DUI roadblocks or those who simply sit outside popular nightspots or billiard lounges and just wait for easy pickins around closing time. How about the marine patrol who call boaters out for no reason whatsoever and conduct searches under the guise of safety inspections. I could fill up three pages of topix with cops behaving proactively as opposed to reactively Flacko and barely scratch the surface.

He withdrew his endorsement, you on the other hand are thrilled that this jackass made the statement and gone above and beyond trying to justify. You've spun it in so many directions and taken sh!t out of context and made false acussations about Phil and I.
Good lord woman get your head out of your behind, here was the story, if you have an issue with it take it up with Paul Ryan, bitch at him for withdrawing his endorsement, question him, make all these false accusations towards him.-
Paul Ryan withdraws endorsement after controversial rape statement
VICTORIA CAVALIERE
Thursday, October 11, 2012
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.
“State Representative Rivard's comments are outrageous and offensive," Ryan's congressional campaign spokesman Kevin Siefert said Thursday. "There is no place in our discourse for rhetoric such as this,” the statement adds.

The jackass who made the comment now even deplores his own comments -

I'm begging you to turn of the 'no spin' zone, it's making you dizzy!
Okay, Ryan was wrong to do that.

I agree with you. But in this volatile environment, any misstep in one's choice of words or omittance of an important word can be miscontrued and become politically lethal.

Are we good now? Let's talk about your scooter again.

Do the research. I did yesterday and posted it. But you'll have to do your own homework from now on.

Look up women earn the same as men in the same professions. That will give you a good start.

anyone who feels that they are being paid less than fair value should apply for another job and find out whether they are correct....

in our company, employees generally do not know each others' salaries....and recognize that a new employee may earn more if necessary to recruit them from another company....

so you're ok with women earning less than men as long as it's not by the ratio the president mentioned?

For computer programmers, for instance, women earn 95 cents for every dollar a man earns. For cashiers it’s 92 cents. For cooks and customer service representatives, it’s 95 cents. Other occupations have more unequal ratios. Women who are personal financial advisers, for instance, earn just 58 cents of what men in that job earn.

They all ready have devices that prevent one who is over the limit from starting his/her vehicle.

Nothing in our analysis suggests that gender discrimination doesn’t exist. In fact, the experts we consulted agreed that no matter how much you adjust the models to equalize for outside factors, a difference in pay between men and women remains, and it’s one that can’t be explained away.

That was the whole point behind Obama's deception and misleading the people about the facts.
Women DON'T make less than men in the SAME professions. Obama left out this important distinction intentionally.
That Act only makes it easier for women to sue their employers and gives employers more reason not to hire more women because of it.
I really did think you were smarter than this.
Wrong__the Leadbetter act was case specific__the lawsuits now have ground rules.

Again you use the word professions__why is that?

Equal pay for equal work deals specifically with specific jobs not specific professions.

...a friendly reminder of another O'bama lie: about the fact Planned Parenthood doesn’t perform life saving mammograms as President Obama and Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards have claimed. During the presidential debate on Tuesday night in New York, Obama said,“When Gov. Romney says that we should eliminate funding for Planned Parenthood, there are millions of women all across the country who rely on Planned Parenthood for not just contraceptive care; they rely on it for mammograms.”

The Department of Health and Human Services has also confirmed Planned Parenthood does not own any mammogram machines and therefore does not perform mammograms.

O'bama is a boob and knows even less about boobs.

Why is Obama losing?
