You, my friend, truly are a horse of a different color. Not only a no-longer closet racist but you're reaching for sweeping generalizations. Which, in regards to charity donations, is completely incorrect. It's pretty equal, but conservatives primarily give to religious organizations while liberals go for secular groups and disaster relief. And, let's be honest, TaxNoMore, if you want to come after me on anything in that area, be my guest. That could be a fun (albeit one-sided) discussion.
http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/ezra-klei...
By the way, I've given to charity multiple times in the past few years. United Way, cancer research and recently both money and clothing for Sandy victims. As a humanist, I feel obligated to help other people. I don't just log onto a message board and whine, or copy & paste right-wing anti-Obama articles. What about you? What good have you done lately? Don't count vomiting forth every Obama-hating story you find on the net.
Also, when I see my (dominantly liberal) friends tomorrow at work who excitedly fund-raise millions of dollars for THON every year to help kids and stop pediatric cancer, I'll be sure to mention that it's just misplaced guilt and entitlement. If they were real Americans they'd just hand it over to church organizations and focus on graduating with high GPA's so they can make more money for themselves and their future employers, the American way.
Rest isn't even worth addressing for now. Now instead of your typical act of being little more than a malfunctioning program with some racist source code and the input of a bullied sixth-grader, let's see if you can respond as a person with a brain.

That would certainly be a good start. If we could end attacking one another and try to actually come together and fuse our ideas, I think this forum would be exponentially better.

President Barack Obama and his opponent former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney have touted their records of hiring women while in office—but both candidates have a mixed record on equal hiring and closing the gender pay gap.

Under the Obama administration, the median salary for female federal employees is nearly 93% of what men make, according to the U.S. Merit Systems Protection Board, an agency that works to protect the rights of federal employees. That figure -- while up from just over 83% in 1991

According to a University of Massachusetts Center for Women in Politics and Public Policy study, when Romney was sworn in as governor in 2003, 42% of his administration's senior-level appointments were women. That figure dropped to 25% during the last two years of his tenure.

Thanks for failing to mention what jobs these specific people do. Seriously, I could have possibly have found the exact same thing in the Bush Administration given that the majority of the high ranking posts were held by men? Right? Or would it have been an even greater divide. You wouldn't know how to measure JOB TO JOB pay if your life dependent on it. No wonder right wingers always destroy the economy. They don't even know the first thing about how to measure it. Face it, the GOP in America are regulating women's junk in ways we haven't seen in decades. I guess it's a lot easier than having a public discussion about how much of a complete and utter failure supply side economics and trickle down theories were to the economy.

Let's see if you can respond as a person with a brain.
Why are you asking me to critique the White House and its compensation practices? Certainly you're aware that I'm not an Obama diehard. Or at least I'd like to think so, but you've clearly shown that anyone who remotely praises or has agrees with any presidential policy is your enemy.

Perhaps there are good reasons. Perhaps there are not. The average common citizen simply isn't well-informed about the practice of assigning salary and wages to employees of the administration; it's not black-and-white, there are almost always other factors to consider in the real world of employment. But, then, I'm more optimistic in expecting a reasonable answer from my roommate's dog before getting a legitimate reply from you. You're going to parrot Daily Caller or one of its equivalents until you run out of material to swing for the fences with.

That said, even if I were to say "Well maybe he doesn't pay these women what they deserve?", I'm not going to grant you that communism is going to sweep the nation anytime soon. You don't actually think that the big bank and corporate interests that control government are going to let that stand, do you? That would destroy their profits, and in our America that will never slide.

How about my previous remark concerning liberal versus conservative charitable donation? Are you going to touch that one or is Obama Rhetoric your only source of self-professed expertise? You do amazingly well at avoiding the rest, especially concerning predominantly third-party/independents like myself and xfactor.

Rep. David Rivera (R-FL)

Charges: Rivera is under investigation by the FBI and the IRS for multiple money laundering and tax evasion schemes.

Rep. Michael Grimm (R-NY)

Grimm, a freshman congressman, set up an illegal system to funnel money into his campaign.

Essentially, there's a maximum amount that people can give to a campaign, and Grimm flouted that by setting up a way for big donors to give money through middlemen

Sen. David Vitter (R-LA)

Charges: Vitter — who is infamous for being fingered in a prostitution sting — is now under investigation for an attempted bribery of the U.S. Secretary of the Interior.

Rep. Harold Rogers (R-KY)

Charges: Rogers used his position as the Chairman of the House Appropriations Committee to steer millions of dollars in earmarks to a local manufacturing company in exchange for campaign contributions.

CREW's report claims Rogers engaged in an unseemly deal with the Kentucky manufacturing firm Phoenix Products, which later overcharged the Army for drip pans that were priced at 700% market value.

Rep. Paul Broun (R-GA)

Charges: Broun failed to disclose the true source of loans made to his campaign fund.

According to CREW, Broun lied a couple times about how he found a way to finance his first campaign. Essentially, Broun spent more money than he had during his first campaign for congress, and had to take out a bunch of loans to avoid being politically bankrupt.

Rep. Vern Buchanan (R-FL)

Charges: His list of potential violations include coercing contributions, conduit contributions, excessive contributions, corporate contributions, witness tampering, obstruction of agency proceedings, bribery of a witness, false statements of personal financial disclosure forms, tax evasion and conduct not reflecting creditably on the House.

Rep. Cliff Stearns (R-FL)

Charges: Stearns is accused of directing public money to his wife, misusing official congressional resources for a campaign, and also improperly using House proceedings on campaign materials.

According to the CREW report, Stearns secured $5 million worth of earmarks for his wife's employer, the College of Central Florida. Two days before one of his earmarks was passed, his wife's salary doubled, and as Stearns secured more funding for the school, his wife continued to rise through the ranks.

Rep. Don Young (R-AK)

Charges: Young, a 20-term congressman, is accused of earmarking transportation funds to a campaign donor, using campaign funds for personal expenses, and neglecting to disclose gifts from lobbyists.

The FBI has launched investigations into Rep. Young's "systemic abuse" of his position of trust.

Washington wakes up to deja vu

Still, the election hardly amounted to a mandate for change.

Instead, it will be the same players gathered around the negotiating table — or refusing to negotiate — as the government tries to deal with a pending fiscal calamity that includes the expiration of the Bush tax cuts,

the end of Obama’s payroll tax cut,

a steep reduction in defense and domestic spending known in Washington-speak as “sequestration” and a debt that exceeds $16 trillion.

Charges: Grimm, a freshman congressman, set up an illegal system to funnel money into his campaign.

Essentially, there's a maximum amount that people can give to a campaign, and Grimm flouted that by setting up a way for big donors to give money through middlemen.

So, if Big Donor A wanted to give $20,000 to Grimm illegally, Grimm would accept the cash — literally at a money drop — and then find eight people, known as "straw donors," who were willing to say that they each contributed the maximum $2,500, and tell the FEC that the money came from those fake donors.

Sen. David Vitter (R-LA)

Charges: Vitter — who is infamous for being fingered in a prostitution sting — is now under investigation for an attempted bribery of the U.S. Secretary of the Interior.

Honorable Mention: Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX)

Charges: Outgoing Texas Representative Ron Paul allegedly sought double travel reimbursements for expenses.

The CREW report claims that Ron Paul took a number of expensive flights over the course of his career that he put in for reimbursements from his official congressional travel expense account.

12 democrat Crooks Arrested in Harrisburg on Friday
After months of investigations and speculation,

PA Attorney General Tom Corbett arrested 12 individuals, all democrats,

in connection with his probe into lawmakers’ illegally using taxpayer dollars to fund political campaigns, last week.

One former House leader, one sitting representative, and 10 current or former caucus staffers were nabbed by agents of the AG’s office and delivered for arraignment in Harrisburg.

The Blog Tom Corbett Doesn't Want You To read:

Sat, 2012-11-10 10:24
Governor Tom Corbett seems to be unraveling a bit, and in a quite familiar way.

The former Attorney General of Pennsylvania's vigorous denial of slow-walking the Jerry Sandusky investigation and welcoming of Attorney General-elelct Kathleen Kane's investigation is quite similar to a very well-known proclamation from another prominent politician.

Is there anyone out there who doesn't believe Governor Tom Corbett should be investigated over his conduct in the tardy Jerry Sandusky investigation?

If so, then today provides even more rationale for a probe of then-Attorney General and gubernatorial candidate Corbett's lack of action that allowed a violent child-predator to walk the street for years after his heinous crimes came to light.
