Numerous studies have shown that when you match education (higher % of women get fluffy liberal arts degrees), experience (higher % of women take years off, usually for family reasons), and work hours (on average women work fewer hours) then the "unequal pay" disappears. If a woman gets an engineering degree, works 20 years w/out significant work leave, and put in a 50-hour week she'll get the same pay as a man who does the same. If a man gets an Identity Studies degree, takes several "career interruptions," and puts in a 40-hour week he'll get the same pay as a woman who does the same.
Some would say he's being inconsistent. I would say that a Democrat lying about being pro-life and pro-religious freedom is perfectly consistent.

And the dirty Republicans want to keep enlightened people from voting twice, as well as keeping undocumented transient "citizens" from voting, and keep helpful enlightened people from filling out the ballots of people who can't or won't make it to the polls. There is no end to their evil.

And after all that, we had boatloads of people risking their lives to cross the South China Sea to escape capitalist countries and gain the glorious workers' paradise that was united Vietnam. Or was it the other way around? And no "dominoes" fell, certainly not in places like Cambodia. You are entitled to your own opinions, but not your own facts. Millions of people suffered because of Uncle Ho and his merry band of brothers, and the only way to have entirely avoided any and all messy situations would have been to say what you appear to be saying -- those people do not hold the same value as people like me.

Absolutely. And are there any Democrats attacking other Democrats, or only Republicans attacking other Republicans? Politics is the art of the possible, and you can easily high-principle yourself into insignificance.
The top 10 money-making movies of all time, adjusted for inflation are: "Gone with the Wind," "Avatar," "Star Wars (the original)," "Titanic," "The Sound of Music," "E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial," "The Ten Commandments," "Doctor Zhivago," "Jaws," and "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs." Not a single R-rated movie in the bunch.
On the other hand, I know a lot of women -- mostly the 18- to 35-year-olds -- who don't think any higher than their waist.

Don't forget the other side of slow news -- the breakdown of the family, the celebration of perversion, the acceptance of corruption, the institutionalization of failure.

So if it were 50.1% we could put "most" in ALL CAPS because, you know, they read louder. And as more felt it was patriotic than felt it was unpatriotic -- polls never sum to 100% -- "most" is a fair statement.
I'm not too sure about the women.
