"The paranoia and need for control that Hillary has is astounding. She couldn't even have an official e-mail account to handle all of the unimportant minutia of her office (which in any bureaucracy takes up somewhere north of ninety percent of the communications) and reserve the private one for all of the underhanded stuff (like normal politicians do).

Hillary Clinton - Like Dick Nixon without the charm, talent, youth, and ability."

25 (which in any bureaucracy takes up somewhere north of ninety percent of the communications)

It's easier to hide the incriminating evidence in with all of the minutiae. It would be obvious if only the important stuff was missing. She can record all of the B.S in the record and say, "oh, look at all of this stuff I reported in accordance with the law." Meanwhile, some server is going to somehow be destroyed in a house fire. :/

32 In a former job I was one of two junior associates in a three person office, the other was a woman. She routinely left the office early to go to her kids' soccer games or pick them up from cello practice so that any "must do" business that came in rolled to me or the senior partner. She refused to fly to out-of-town sites because she "has a family"s and couldn't risk dying in a plane crash, leaving all the out-of-town travel workload to me or the senior partner. Her salary was identical to mine.


I, for one, am absolutely in favor of pay equality.

38 (Reuters) - A
Reuters/Ipsos poll shows that about two-thirds of Americans believe men
are generally paid more than women, a finding that suggests that
Democrat Hillary Clinton's message on pay inequality could resonate
broadly with Americans should she run for president in 2016.



A slanted poll and it still only garners 51%. This myth has been repeatedly debunked and the commies still spew it. If the public does believe this lie it is because the MFM push the bidding of their masters in the DNC.

42 If RINO Rubio is doing it it is probably shit. And he is going to coordinate with one of the biggest RINOs in the Party we don't have????

I looked at the article, and it looks like a good outline to me. Of course, neither Rubio nor Lee are actually on the Senate Finance committee, so it's worthless, but the *outline* looks good.

Two (really 3) individual tax brackets. 15% up to 75K (150K for couples) 35% above that (and, of course, there will be some people who pay 0). Nuke capital gains, dividend, and estate taxes. Nuke the vast majority of deductions- leaving only home mortgage interest and charitable deduction. Child tax credit changes to 2500 and offsets both income AND payroll taxes (not sure how that would work).

So, from a "nice things to have" position, it looks good. But I suspect it's just more theater. Something Rubio can point to on the campaign trail (and Lee, too, I suppose) to say, "See how conservative I am? Look at what I tried to get passed!"

46 I have never once in my life thought or complained that I was being paid less because I'm a woman. Not once. Not ever. Not for one single solitary millisecond.

You know what? I consider it ridiculously and outrageously sexist to assume that I am incapable of negotiating my salary and benefit all on my own Because Uterus. If I do a poorer job of that than a man does, that's on me.

I am not some little child who needs Daddy to hold her hand and make sure that everyone is being nice to her.

Broken down by political party, 67 percent of Democrats and 36 percent of Republicans said the federal government should be playing a more active role, according to the poll.

That's interesting: just as Democrats argue Obama should appease Islam and, especially, Iran, some leftist Israelis are arguing they need to appease Obama. In other words, he's seen as creeping toward Islams corner and they're hoping "playing nice" keeps him from going full Jihad.

I guess that for some of them, they leave for the islands or some other destination immediately upon the completion of the last day of school.

And this really fcuks up their summer plans.

What they need is about six years of coming back from a long term deployment, and the night before pulling into home port, being told, "Change of plans".

You learn to accept and deal with real life.

I've got most of the Drizzt books, but I don't really count them (what with "sorcery" being lacking in most of them), and I've got a fair amount of modern fantasy/horror (Patricia Briggs, Jim Butcher, etc.).

So... Obviously I need to fix that. Does the horde have any suggestions?

He does understand what the real argument is about. He knows that no matter what, no matter who is elected, 11 million illegals are not going to be deported.

The real fight is whether the illegals gain permanent resident status or citizenship.

Smart people will get in front of this argument and make a grand, all inclusive, "comprehensive" law that stops the democrats from gaining 11 million voters. Really smart people would include provisions that if any "permanent resident" is caught voting, their status is immediately revoked and they are deported.

But we are the dumb party. So we'll keep yelling for a solution that will never happen. Then, like gay marriage, the country will "evolve" and we'll have lost.

My first job after grad school didn't pay great, but it was a step up from my work in food service. About 6 months after I was hired, I ran into a female friend of mine who was hired for pretty much the same position in the same company. Turns out that she was hired for about $6k more than me. Did I bitch and complain? No, because I'm not a dickless little pussy. Instead, I started working on my salary and benefits negotiating skills, which has worked out pretty well for me since then.

Oh, and it turned out the HR person who did my paperwork when I was hired effed up and was paying me about $6k less than the minimum for my position. HR's response? Well, these official pay scales are more guidelines than legally binding requirements. Since that day, I've taken the POV that HR departments consists of people too stupid and incompetent to be homeless beggars, and I have treated them as such. Apologies if you're one of the 2-3 competent HR people on the planet.

Semi sorcery, lots of swords, battles, elfs (sort of), orcs (sort of), magical theological philosphy, coming of age, women kick ass, strange yet familiar people, mystery, suspense.

Very well written. Keeps you occupied and not bored (there's a few slow spots but not many) consistency across volumes, no ridiculous assumptions, magical philosophy hangs together quite well (similar to the idea of The Force)

255 I'm just gonna say it, based on decades of cubicle-dwelling in several different office environments:

Women take more time off than men. Far, far more.

I'm sorry to have to say it. And I am well aware that I'm generalizing, but overall it's true and everybody knows it's true.

If I took half as much time off as my female assistant, for instance, I'd be out of a job in no time.

Male bosses, especially, simply do not want to say no to a woman. And there are (legal) reasons for that, and I understand that.

But the attendance disparity by gender in many (most?) offices these days is quite remarkable.

256 244. The way to prove that the illegals aren't the educated hard workers the libs keep talking about how is the fact that there are tons of jobs in Mexico right now, especially in auto manufacturing
They are desperate for workers
Also they closed their southern borders so illegals won't take the jobs from their citizens

257 "Permanent resident status WILL BE citizenship. "

If it's done right, permanent residents will be permanent residents, citizens will be citizens and illegals (who don't have PR status or citizenship) will be deported.

Is there a possibility of a "slippery slope"? Sure. But if we did it correctly, the PR status of that portion of the 11 million who come forward will only last until they either die or leave. Their kids already have citizenship.

If you really think about it, this could be used to clean out all the undesirable aliens far more efficiently than we could do it without granting PR status.

Yes, it's a bore and a trial for people who have gotten way too much of it like the people in MA, but I like the change of seasons. I, on the other hand, will probably never have to worry that President Obama comes to my state for a vacation and thus means "regular people" can'tenjoy the gold course and have places off limit to them. When Obama leaves office (whenever that is) he may go and live in your state. Good luck with that! ;^)

264 "240
The only reason we need the "illegals" is to delay the inevitable collapse of the welfare state."

That is the thinking of many naive liberals that believe the New Americans and their anchor babies will generate enough tax revenue to make SS, medicare, medicare, food stamps etc... viable. That is delusional at best. Most of the New Americans will be low income and pay few taxes. The majority will be using those program far more than they pay in. In fact, to get them to the polls every year will require promises of even more goodies. This amnesty and the continuing flow of illegals will bring on the burning times much sooner than scheduled.

But yeah I'm not seeing a pay gap based on gender without factoring in for performance. Or pay gap for race or tranny tendency either. Big tits possibly.

268 >>The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) has closed I-220 in Caddo and Bossier Parishes. The urban portion of I-49 in Shreveport between LA 526 (Bert Kouns Industrial Loop) and I-20 and the northern portion of I-49 between LA Hwy. 1 and the Arkansas state line is also closed.

Of course the schools are closed. They already have lengthened the school day by 5 minutes a day to make up for previous snow days.

Do other places do that? I'd never heard of it before.

I mis-read.

The school days were already longer than they needed to be, so that they don't have to add days.

>> "We build in about 5 additional minutes each day in our instruction time so that gives a buffer, if you will, for inclement weather or sudden cancellations like the past three days."

But with another snow day today, they may go over. And another district did go over already, but haven't decided what to do about it.

272 Wow, American women are so, so oppressed. Such a horrible sexist and misogynistic society where women can't get ahead. O woe is me!

Really, people need to stop complaining so much. My home country is actually quite misogynistic but women still manage to get ahead and don't spend their time whining about how unfair life is. (I'm talking about the south where we're not completely oppressed.)

My mom became a top director (reporting to the equivalent of the CEO) in one of the govt outfits at the age of 34, in very sexist Nigeria. She worked extremely (too?) hard and made her mark there. I never heard her complain about being slighted as a women, although, come to think of it, that must have been the case, especially at her relatively young age at the time.

People need to stop whining so much. I can't think of a better place for women than America.

275 As for the idea of causing self-deportation, my version of that idea largely goes like this:

1. Require E-Verify for all employment, current or new-hire, with validation needed for every employee within 6 months of the law going into effect. Drastically increase penalties for employers of illegal aliens and step up enforcement. Do not prosecute past employers of such if they no longer do. (This encourages employers to stop employing immediately.)

2. All government benefits will be amended in that they can only be issued to US Citizens or legal permanent residents.

3. Any illegal alien who signs up and self-deports within 6 months of the passage of the law will be able to sign up for legal immigration queues or guest-worker programs (with no greater or lesser consideration than any other applicant from any other country) in 5 years. Any who fail to do so and are caught and deported are denied entry in perpetuity.

It's fair to people who went through the legal system, fair to the taxpayer, respects the rule of law, and even gives those who were here a chance to come back if they have an otherwise-clean record and comply with the law.

276 NEW EMAILS Could Send Democrat Elijah Cummings to Prison for Targeting Voter Rights Group

Outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder today announced that prosecution of Elijah Cummings had been added to the to do list at the DOJ.

"Representative Cummings will be indited right after Representative Rangel. Both of these prosecutions are scheduled right after my own prosecution for contempt of congress. Unfortunately, the Felony murder counts in Fast and Furious are delaying all of those prosecutions, but we had to put those on the back burner due to our ongoing investigation of the IRS handling of the Tea Party. Of course that investigation is delayed by our investigation of the Tea Party itself - which is also delayed by our ongoing search for right wing Terrorists - who threaten the very existence of our country. As soon as we can find some right wing terrorists to prosecute, that entire backlog of cases at DOJ will be starting to clear. I'm sure the incoming Attorney General will agree with our priorities here and you can expect Representative Cummings to be prosecuted any day now. Let me be clear: it will be happening in its own due time."

279 At some point, someone on Team Obama had to a) be aware of Hillary's email thing, and b) have used government email servers to mention/question it to an equal or higher-up the ladder staffer for an answer:

"Why doesn't Hillary have or use a .gov email like everyone else? Isn't her personal server thing against the new rules put in place in 2009 to prevent this type of secret squirrel shit??? cc: WH Counsel's office, potus, vpotus"

A question needing to be asked right away is: "Did anyone at the WH coordinate with or at any time communicate with Hillary about this for any reason and if so who decided what why and when?"

Because if Hillary really is only just now letting Team O in on this, then its its a total betrayal by her and another example of utter Doofusland incompetence by Obama. I suspect Obamaland knew all about it from the start were either powerless to stop her.

10k quatloos says there's government server email traffic of high ranking Obama aides being told that Hillary's program was totes bogus, and it needed to be stopped and these same aides saying in reply, "yeah we know, shut up about it anyway. Its Hillary."

and yes, the President was at least aware of it...IF he was ever paying attention the 40 million times he's been photographed glued to his Crackberry.
