    You guessed it, Obama and Clinton. "The first would resurrect the discredited idea of "comparable worth." The second would add various sexual orientations to the classifications protected from employment discrimination. The third is a plaintiffs' bar wish list, aimed mostly at overturning cases it lost in the Supreme Court.There are actually two versions of comparable worth legislation, the Fair Pay Act and the Paycheck Fairness Act. The former is co-sponsored by Sen. Barack Obama; the principal sponsor of the latter is Sen. Hillary Clinton (Mr. Obama is a co-sponsor). Both would push companies to set wages based not on supply and demand -- that is the free market -- but on some notion of social utility. The goal is to ensure that jobs performed mostly by men (say, truck drivers) are not paid more than those performed mostly by women (paralegals, perhaps)."


    Is this the change we're being offered?

    No kidding. I never thought I'd see the day that we'd have legislation being introduced that would impose limitations to salaries. These two aren't worthy of sitting in a homeowners association council, let alone the highest office in the land. William Bradford tried something similar to this back in the 1650's with the pilgrims and it failed miserably.

    Maybe if companies paid people what they could afford and what they were worth, then there would be no need for this type of legislation or unions for that matter...

    The problem is, the Repubs set an all-time low when GW got elected. Now even a gerbil with a speech impediment would look good in the Oval Office.

    That aside, in all seriousness, Hillary and Obama's intellectual superiority would leave GW gasping like a fish out of water. Pretty hard to criticise these two after the past 8 years....In Lord Brown Trout, you moniker fits the bill to T! :eek:)

    Provide some proof of your claim. Ohh I do not know, perhaps provide us with the IQ's of the 3 so we can see this stark difference you claim. Maybe post the grade point average of the three from College, so again we can see this great divide you talk of.

    Neither are intellectually superior to Bush. One is a crook that is just smart enough and has enough connections to never get caught, the other is a racist with absolutely no concept of how Foreign policy should work. Both are absolute morons when it comes to Social Programs.

    I don't need to prove anything in that regard. I've seen all three speak. I have seen Obama and Hillary speak off the cuff, as I have Dubya. He is King of the Dumbfucks. I'm surprised he can put two sentences together.

    Where is your proof that Hillary or Obama are crooks? Take your time, or are you just mouthing off again.

    LOL re foreign policy. You remember before the interview before 2000 where the journo asked Bush the heads of state of six countries and he was flumoxed?? As I said, the moment you right-wing whackjobs voted him in, all bets were off re the intellect of your leader. As I said, anybody will be smarter than him....

    A typical American, ethnocentric, ignorant, right-wing hayseed......

    Actually I'm considered a centrist where I come from. Thing is, in most western countries people would think that due to my views. The problem with you Yanks is your politics are so skewed both ways that even moderates are considered either lefties OR righties...how fucked is that.

    As for running other countries, unlike you guys who have never had an influence on other countries' politics, right? Can you say South Vietnam? Chile? Central America circa 1980s? Yadda, yadda, yadda..

    As for who should be your president, your whole political system needs an overhaul. It's broken big time IMO...
