Barack Obama, our next President

Why am I sick? It's the Republican candidates who come up with a new rape story every day; what do you attribute that to?
Rape is not sex, it is control and hatred of women. Have any Democratic candidates made rape comments? No. It's a republican thing so own it.
Tom Smith, GOP Senate Candidate: Pregnancy From Rape Similar To 'Having A Baby Out Of Wedlock'
Todd Akin told a TV interviewer Sunday that women’s bodies are almost always able to prevent pregnancy in cases of “legitimate rape.”
Friess: This contraceptive thing, my gosh it’s such inexpensive, back in my days we used Bayer aspirin for contraception, the gals put it between their knees and it wasn’t that costly.
GOP lawmakers seek to legally redefine rape as “forcible rape” so fewer women will qualify as victims
Another GOP lawmaker (surprise, surprise) worries that women will claim rape just to get abortions
Pundits and lawmakers: Forced ultrasounds are OK because women already consented to be penetrated when they got pregnant.
When women sign up for the military to hang out with aggressive dudes, they are asking to be raped
Santorum and Huckabee are all about rape victims taking one for team “Life.” Let’s not forget our Rick Santorum and Mike Huckabee, respectively, think rape victims should “make the best” of it and see the unwanted child as a gift and sometimes cool people are conceived in rape.

uring a June 2012 conference call with the National Federation of Independent Businesses – Mitt Romney told employers that they should make it clear to their employees who to vote for this election. As Romney said,“I hope you make it very clear to your employees what you believe is in the best interest of your enterprise and therefore their job and their future in the upcoming elections…Nothing illegal about you talking to your employees about what you believe is best for the business.”

Dear Mr.Exxon, glad to see you are doing so well. Please return that subsidy since you don't need it. Thank you.
What the president often calls subsidies for “Big Oil” are legitimate tax provisions that apply to virtually all American manufacturers and producers. In fact, companies like ExxonMobil actually are specifically disadvantaged:
The oil and gas industry deduction under section 199 of the tax code, for instance, is lower than the deduction allowed for nearly all other U.S. manufacturers.

No, thank you. But, we would like to be treated exactly like every other manufacturer in the United States.

By the way, since we only made 9.6 billion dollars in the United States, but had to pay 12.6 billion dollars in taxes just for being here, please tell us why we should stay here and not move our operations to, oh, say, Russia, or China, or Brasil, or any other goddam country where we wouldn't have to pay more in taxes than we earn in that country.

Thank you.

And your point? So someone a guy's been dating for a while accuses him of rape because she's upset with him? How many of those cases get prosecuted as rape?

Yes, for my sister, he went to prison, 30 year sentence. It was a violent rape. For my friend, no - she went to her parents who didn't believe her, but also told her that it must have been something that she did. She was raped numerous times before she had the physical strength to stand up for herself and to this day, she still sees him sometimes at family functions.
I do know that there are those that falsely accuse men, but each case has to be looked at with merit.

Wow, you really are stupid if that's what you think the issue is. It's when a male nurse makes more than a female nurse...same years of experience, same number of hours.
It's not that, cough, hard to understand.
It's been proven time and time again with every statistic out there that women in the same profession as men on average make 5 cents less. That's not enough to pass a bill that will prevent employers from hiring more women for fear of a lawsuit.

Do the research if you don't believe me. Or go back and look at the websites I posted - PolitiFact and law firms - who all say Obama misled the public about the Lily Ledbetter Act.

That seems to be Obama's solution for everything though, doesn't it? More people unemployed and frivolous lawsuits.

Okay. Thanks.
Bare naked, bare knuckles, bears repeating...got it.
But you know how it is sometimes when you're in a hurry to make a point on here...as I've had to point out in some of your posts as well...and I know you appreciate it too.
You ignore the question regarding the number of false accusations, as usual, and I don't appreciate that a bit. Even with the numbers exonerated by DNA, doesn't really go to the concept of "false" accusations. Unfortunately, I believe that a preponderance of those eye witness convictions might have been from poor identification than deliberate falsehood. Cases like, "some black dude did it" combined with "they all look alike to me"?

The job description defines equal work, not some brown nosing good ol' boy cronyism. Of course, that should make them just become better at covering their tracks, but some are just slow learners.
