Comment: Brown is a right winger (Score 1) 65

Like Clinton, he gets a lot of hate from the right despite pushing a right wing agenda:

  1. College costs have doubled despite state budget moving back to black

    Killed single payer health care, which passed three times under Arnie
    Opposed a serious increase in the minimum wage
    Opposes marijuana legalization

And that's off the top of my head. I'm sure someone who lives there could come up with more stuff.

Why are those two always equated? Is MM a racist

Yes

I figured the response to this would have been partisan butthurt, just not something this lazy. How is MM a racist, etc.

So you agree with Rush that communists are the voice of the Left?

So you're a wingnut that wouldn't know a real leftist if he came up and slapped you in the face while singing Le IInternationale? Today's elected Democrats are to the right of today's Republican voters on just about any issue you can name.

That would be like thinking all liberals are like Michael Moore or all conservatives are like Rush Limbaugh.

Why are those two always equated? Is MM a racist hypocritical drug addicted hack that shills and lies for a living? No. You'd have to find some cokehead at Korean Central Television to someone on the left that's equivalent to Rush.

You're not reading my post....

That's just your problem - I am reading your post and responding to it.

No large tech company has gone beyond Apple

And the dissonance: so Apple is better than everybody else, yet Apple is the only company you're castigating for what every electronics company does: contract their manufacturing to Foxconn.

You're not responding to the problems with your argument.

Your original complaint was that Scotland couldn't start off without it's "share" of debt, remember? That Scotland would still be tied 18 different ways at the hip to what remained of the UK? And - again - there's the fact that Scotland wouldn't end up as another Greece or Spain because they have most of the UK's natural resources, chiefly the oil-rich North Sea.

Did you even read the article?!? No, the claimed goal of "equal pay for equal work" is still not with us.

Did you??? The whole damn point was that the pay is the same - or even more - when you're actually looking for equal pay for equal work, instead of equal pay regardless of position or education or hours worked on the job.

Before getting to articles, did you read the first and second sentences in a three sentence post?

The classic "wage gap" complaint has always been based on ignoring the "hours worked" gap. Men work most overtime hours, whereas women hold most part time jobs.

If you're a woman, would you expect to earn more at a full-time job than a man working part-time? Of course you would.

If you're a woman, would you expect to earn more than a man if you work overtime while he works 9 to 5? Of course you would.

Of course, now you have your "wage gap", which in reality is a "work gap".

So, did you read just one paragraph and miss out the rest of the article?

Did you? It's comparing equal pay for equal work and education.

skills-matched cohorts of male and female employees show a wage and career security discrepancy in favour of men in almost any study you care to mention

You mean an hours-worked discrepancy. Men put in the majority of overtime hours, and the vast majority of 60+ hour work weeks. The "76 cents on the dollar" canard is based on ignoring overtime and focusing on "skills" and "positions". If you're a woman, and you worked 10 hours more per week than a male colleague in the same position, you'd damn well expect to be paid more money as well.

but it conspicuously never flips around the other side

  • In 2008, single, childless women between ages 22 and 30 were earning more than their male counterparts in most U.S. cities, with incomes that were 8% greater on average, according to an analysis of Census Bureau data released Wednesday by Reach Advisors, a consumer-research firm in Slingerlands, N.Y.
