thank you for confirming that voter fraud is a serious problem.......
Republicans who have declared war on our representative government are just lousy people. "The Republicans trot out their zombie lies about voter fraud, but the reality is that the more people vote, the more Republicans lose. They're a demographic dead end, and they know that even their extreme gerrymandering isn't enough to save them. Their only option is to disenfranchise people, and make it harder for people to participate in representative government. Particularly low-income people. Particularly African American people."

"There is no gender gap in wages among men and women with similar family roles. Comparing the wage gap between women and men ages 35-43 who have never married and never had a child, we find a small observed gap in favor of women, which becomes insignificant after accounting for differences in skills and job and workplace characteristics.
This observation is an important one because it suggests that the factors underlying the gender gap in pay primarily reflect choices made by men and women given their different societal roles, rather than labor market discrimination against women due to their sex."

The answer is: Yes, Its called a brain.

Equal pay for equal work refers to a man & woman working the same job with equivalent qualifications.

Not some report about women vs men across a wide spectrum of job possibilities.

Clinton didn't disarm the military you damned liar. I was in the Army during the Nixon administration and I had to keep my personal weapon (a 9mm Walther P38) at the MP post. Neither I nor anyone else except an MP on duty was allowed to carry a firearm on base. To those imbeciles who think that everyone being armed would have been a good thing here's what retired colonel Jack Jacobs had to say on the matter;
"The situation that existed at Fort Hood the other day, in a circumstance in which everybody has weapons, could very easily result and probably would have resulted in an enormous mass fratricide, and you would have this all the time," said Jacobs. "Arming everybody in a civilian situation like at Fort Hood would result in a terrible, terrible tragedy, larger than this one."
"No responsible commander would ever agree to arm all of his soldiers on post, that's all there is to it, and I know, I've commanded lots of troops in and out of combat."
You're an idiot!
Are you seriously the best Democrats have now? You are no less of a joke than any of the rest of them.

Fort Hood and other forts with stressed out and suicidal populaces are exceptions to the fact that more legal gun ownership deters crime.

Idiots are people who push gun control when gun control policies have always had an adverse effect on crime.

Reuters)– Ted Kennedy Jr., the son of the late Democratic Massachusetts Senator Edward M. Kennedy, will run for a seat in the Connecticut Senate, a Democratic source familiar with his plans said on Monday.

Kennedy, 52, is expected to declare his candidacy on Tuesday at a library in Branford, Connecticut, the town near New Haven where he lives. It will be his first try for political office.

<quoted text>Parrot this and get back to me about what part is wrong.
Libs won't be happy until New York, under progressive democrats, returns to being a crime ridden jungle like Detroit.
City Councilman Jumaane Williams, 1 of the highest-profile foes of stop-and-frisk policing, now wants the NYPD to stop arresting people who commit “minor” crimes on the subway — because, he says, being arrested is “very disruptive” to the perps’ lives.
Williams’ Resolution No. 91 calls on the police & MTA to “stop arresting people for committing minor infractions in the transit system.” Even if someone is known to be a habitual criminal, it specifies, the police should not arrest him or her for committing a “minor infraction,” because “an arrest can cause significant stress” to the criminal.
What crimes count as “minor”? Williams’ resolution says they include,“but are not limited to,” littering & occupying more than 1 seat, smoking, drinking alcohol, public urination, gambling and causing “annoyance, alarm or inconvenience to a reasonable person.”
Does Williams think transit cops should steer clear of cigarette smokers and public urinators & let screaming drunks get in the faces of their fellow commuters? Well, consider the apparent “wrong” he’s trying to right.
Since Commissioner Bratton took over the NYPD, subway arrests have tripled over the same period a year ago. With stop-and-frisk problematic, it seems Bratton is ramping back up a tactic he pioneered in the early 1990s, as head of the MTA police.
Arresting fare-beaters & other miscreants wound up pulling in remarkable numbers of people with warrants for far more serious crimes. Murderers & rapists are much more likely than law-abiding folks to jump turnstiles. This shift in policing — from ignoring “minor” offenses to targeting them — was the start of the city’s historic gains against crime.
Which brings us to Councilman Williams who sponsored laws to end bias-based profiling & to install an independent inspector general at the NYPD. Shouldn’t he be happy to see the police arresting real criminals?
After all, the argument against stop-and-frisk was that police were stopping people in high-crime areas just for behaving in what officers deemed a suspicious manner — which, critics charged, in effect meant that cops were stopping mostly young black & Latino men, most of whom weren’t doing anything wrong.
So if the police are instead arresting people who are actually committing crimes, what’s the concern? According to Williams, arresting litterers, or people selling churros, or beggars, or “showtime” dancers, is “overly punitive, unfair and can cause financial hardship.”
His Resolution 91 also asserts that “many people believe that MTA rules are being enforced unfairly.” Yet every criminal busted in the act makes this complaint.
Consider this a sign of what’s next. Even if it passes, this nonbinding resolution wouldn’t force the NYPD to stop arresting subway troublemakers but it’s surely a warning of more to come if Bratton doesn’t adjust.
Worse, it suggests that progressive legislators won’t stop with their victory over stop-&-frisk, that they in fact view any police enforcement of the laws as systemized bullying or harassment.
Williams appears to be testing the limits of how far the cops can be restrained from doing their job.
Progressives love Detroit
It is hard to believe that a city as big as New York is still arresting people for minor offenses. Here in California that nonsense disappeared years ago. Issuing citations is far more appropriate.

Williams was handcuffed and detained by police back in September, 2011 for using a sidewalk that the police had blocked. He probably still has some lingering anger, honestly, IMO if police officers haven't been doing cite and release it's about time.

Arif Alikhan, assistant secretary of Homeland Security for policy development.
Alikhan is a founder of the World Islamic Organization, which the magazine identifies as a Brotherhood "subsidiary." It suggests that Alikhan was responsible for the "file of Islamic states" in the White House and that he provides the direct link between the Obama administration and the Arab Spring revolutions of 2011, which very obviously Obama was supporting the Wahhabist Muslim Brotherhood.
Mohammed Elibiary, a member of the Homeland Security Advisory Council
Elibiary endorsed the ideas of radical Muslim Brotherhood luminary Sayyid Qutb.
Rashad Hussain, the U.S. special envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference
Rashad Hussain maintained close ties with people and groups that comprise the Muslim Brotherhood network in America. This includes his participation in the June 2002 annual conference of the American Muslim Council, formerly headed by convicted terrorist financier Abdurahman Alamoudi. He also participated in the organizing committee of the Critical Islamic Reflection along with important figures of the American Muslim Brotherhood such as Jamal Barzinji, Hisham al-Talib, and Yaqub Mirza.
Salam al-Marayati, co-founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council
Salam al-Marayati is directly connected to MPAC in the international Muslim Brotherhood infrastructure.
Imam Mohamed Magid, president of the Islamic Society of North America
Magid heads ISNA, which was founded by Muslim Brotherhood members, was appointed by Obama in 2011 as an adviser to the Department of Homeland Security. He has also given speeches and conferences on American Middle East policy at the State Department and advice to the FBI.
Eboo Patel, a member of President Obama's Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships
Eboo Patel is directly connected with Hani Ramadan, the grandson of Brotherhood founder Hasan al-Banna, and is a member of the Muslim Students Association, is a large Muslim Brotherhood organization.
