    That's what republicans do, nothing out of the ordinary. The only surprising thing about this is the people who suffer from their effort to make us a third world nation vote them into office where they next rationalize their social darwinism as essential and sound economics.

    Sure thing.

    My take is that people keep electing liberal thieves to office that want to curtail our rights to better " protect" us, steal our money to bribe the lazy and ignorant to vote for them and insist on trying a failed governmental process called socialism.

    Maybe women should form unions and go on strike.

    Seriously, what objections do you have to equal pay for equal work?

    I don't, personally. But, given your willingness to accept gender based inequality that favors your team I don't have a problem accepting the same for mine.


    You can hit play on James Brown's "It's a Man's World" now.
