If you hate women in the workplace, you've got to love the Paycheck Fairness Act.
Exactly how stupid do you have to be to think that sort of federal law is a good idea? Such a federal law would be extraordinarily stupid. How dumb is the bill? It would have many ill effects:
1. It would create incentives for businesses to avoid hiring women.
2. It is completely unenforceable, but would be extremely expensive for employers who are foolish enough to employ women. It would create a free or low-cost mechanism for women to complain, but a very high cost for businesses to defend.
3. It would create another massive federal bureaucracy to micro-manage business employment practices.
4. It is not a proper Federal matter under constitutional federalism principles. If it were really a good idea for government, let the states try it.
I think women should have an equal right to seek employment opportunities without government punishing employers for hiring them. That is exactly when this bill would do.
Are YOU dumb enough to be a supporter, as President Obama is?
While it easy to lament the fact that the "day that will live in infamy" at Pearl Harbor is being forgotten as new generations of Americans are born and educated (in government schools). However, the Japanese who attacked Pearl Harbor are a very different Japanese than those who make our automobiles and who are significant trading partners.
9/11 is a very different thing. Even though 9/11 was almost 10 years ago, 2001, the left leaning media are working hard, overtime even, to make us forget it. I cannot, and we as a country should not. They are still trying to kill us.
The same mass murderers who planned the 9/11 attack are still out there plotting against us and trying (and succeeding) to subvert some American youth to their cause.
The Cordoba Mosque which is actually on a ground zero site (one of the aircraft engines dropped on the building), appears to be a celebration of the Islamic victory that Islamaists celebrated after the 9/11 attacks. Imam Rauf, former head …
What is the truth behind the shooting of Erik Scott at a Costco in Las Vegas on July 10, 2010?. So far, the best that can be said is that witness accounts differ wildly.
Reportedly, Erik Scott was in Costco looking at water bottles. He apparently was sitting on the floor of an aisle opening water bottle cartons or shrink wraps and trying the water bottles in his back pack. When confronted by a Costco employee, the employee noticed Erik's gun, for which he had a concealed carry permit. The Costco employee called the police saying that a customer with a gun was behaving erratically. All customers were ordered out of the store. Erik was part of the crowd leaving the store. Fast forward: the police shot and killed Erik.
As to what happened the moments before the shooting, the stories diverge.
First, let's look at Erik's background. The following is from the obituary of Erik Scott:
