Comment Re:There is no gender gap it's b.s. (Score 1) 156

You may not have notice when you were copy-pasting those links, the ONE STORY that was actually about the pay gap and had any data was about worldwide pay in developed nations. Women in most European countries have been making the same as men for decades. Hell, even in little countries like Serbia, there's been pay equity for over half a century. The other two stories were op-ed pieces by people who presented evidence, only feelings.

If you look up at the headline of this story, you will notice that it's, "Apple, Facebook, IBM, and Microsoft Sign White House Pledge For Equal Pay". Get that? White House pledge. That means US. And brother, there is absolutely a pay gap in the US. Don't believe me, listen to what those filthy SJW Socialists over at the Wall Street Journal had to say:

If you mean "hard" as in "actually performed an objectively measurable feat of strength",

Come on, man. What was the last time you think someone reading Slashdot "actually performed an objectively measurable feat of strength"?

This story is about Apple, Facebook, IBM and Microsoft. How often do you think the jobs we're talking about require "feats of strength"?

Professional sports would probably disagree with you on that.

Whoa there. Do you believe that the gold medal winning women olympic gymnasts didn't work as hard to achieve their accomplishments as their male counterparts? Did you see what they did?

Do you realize that the US women took home more medals in this olympics than the men?

And in regard to professional athletics, do you really believe - honestly - that the top male tennis players in the US had to work harder than the women players? The leading US women's tennis player has almost twice as many grand slam wins as the leading US men's tennis player.

I repeat the question, PopeRatzo. Are you rationalizing Clinton's destruction of evidence as ok because the Bush administration deleted a really big number of emails?

Are you asking me for a moral or legal judgement? Morally, I find pretty much everyone who runs for this office is repugnant, with only a handful of exceptions. Currently we have a couple of morally unbalanced people running for president.

However, as a veteran, I have learned that malignant competence is always preferable to incompetent foolishness and moral depravity when it comes to running a big organization. That's why I will vote against Donald Trump in November. It's strictly damage control.

And because of that the laws were changed before she took office and she still did it, because you can't touch a Clinton.

You guys, there you go again. First you say it's a moral issue, but then you say, no, it's a legal issue. Are the two things morally equivalent? Absolutely, except it's thousands of emails as opposed to TWENTY-TWO MILLION EMAILS in the case of George W Bush.

Are the two things legally equivalent? Absolutely, since the law has come down the same in both cases.

So really, your beef with Hillary Clinton is just some partisan cum sock.

I like how the argument has devolved here to "If Bush did it, then it's ok". PopeRatzo, is Dubya really your moral compass?

Twenty-two MILLION emails.

Funny, but I don't remember that being an every night issue on the evening news.

And I never, ever look to politicians for a moral compass. I gave that up when Ronald Reagan became president.

Your mention of corporate policies for mail deletion is key here. If emails were deleted in a secure wipe manner as part of a routine schedule for that sort of thing, we have to assume no foul play. But if it was a one-off thing, and especially if it was after they knew there was an investigation, it's very suspicious.

Comment Drake? (Score 4, Funny) 63

We're talking about Drake here. Show of hands: Who cares if Spotify doesn't include Drake in its promoted tracks? If people want to hear Drake (which in itself is a little unsettling), then they can still listen to his music on Spotify.

"Burying" is not the same as "not promoting". The music is there, but there isn't any incentive for Spotify to promote it.

Plus, it's Drake. I mean, come on...
