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.
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 itís 92 cents. For cooks and customer service representatives, itís 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.

And now that red light cameras are going up everywhere, the cameras snap the photo, you get ticket in mail. Who needs cops anymore? They'll probably make cars that can't go over the speed limit and not start if the person is drunk. Fire the cops.
"silly"
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 doesnít 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 itís one that canít 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 doesnít 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,ďWhen 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.Ē

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.

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.
Bah, scooters? Bah! We've already witnessed the second largest global financial collapse in the history of the world due to the failed rightwing policies of the Bush years and people are actually being suckered into doing it all over again by voting for Romney/Ryan and you want to talk about scooters??? Fck scooters! At stake is the survival of the Republic!

Looking for crimes and preventing crimes is not the same thing. A crime still must be committed first.

No. This is what the Demonbrats do best. They even take the Republicans signs out of their yards.

Hey Republicans! Have you heard that the Demonbrats will start a riot (war) if Obama don't get a second term?

You can put those signs in your yard, if you want, but that is awful to take signs from people's yards, but it is even more worse to threaten harm to someone if they don't vote this man back in office.
