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"?

Traffic laws. You know those laws that you have to break before they can pull you over. Watch for crimes in progress. A law already being broken. Stationed in high crime areas. To be able to respond quickly once a crime is under way. If no law is being broke there is nothing for the beat cop to do. A crime must be committed first.

Are you saying that programming computers and nursing are equal forms of work???
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.

Gas has always been subsidized in the United States-it allows even the poor people to move around freely. So O'bama is now campaigning to raise gas prices even more? It will bankrupt this country.

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....

that's just life....

So you agree that plenty of police spend plenty of time working proactively___that means out there searching for crimes as opposed to "responding" to crimes. Your first posts on the subject where then what? Bullshyte?

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.
