Why?

I was browsing as usual and this headline caught my eye...'Senate Mulls Equal Pay for Women'. I haven 't even opened the article to see just what it is that they are 'mulling'.And I don't think I will. The headline offends me. Senators; why on earth would you even stop to think about the question of equal pay. Just do it! And then go stand in the corner for a few hours because it's shameful that we even have to bring this up. Workers are workers and all pay should be equal. Are female Senators paid less than their male counterparts? Of course not. I'm at a loss for words here. This is the 21st century and we are still arguing that women should be paid less than men? Unbelievable! Yet...we still haven't passed the Equal Rights Amendment, have we? Loud sigh...As long as these people are in office we deserve what we get.

Thieves!

States Diverting Mortgage Settlement Money to Other Uses - NYTimes.com:


I was thinking along the same lines this morning when heard Romney complaining about the expenditures for the economic recovery..."the biggest, most careless one-time expenditure by the federal government in history.  And remember this: the stimulus wasn’t just wasted – it was borrowed and wasted." Of course it wasn't wasted; the states spent all of it and in some cases, the general public even received some of it. Romney has a problem with that? Then, why isn't he lambasting the states that 'wasted' the money? No, lies play better on television. 
And then there is this story about Romney..."In his 2010 book, No Apology, Romney argued that following the $152 billion stimulus package signed by President Bush in the summer of 2008, "a second stimulus was called for. Under Obama that's obviously what we got. And you know what Romney thought about that stimulus package? It wasn't too bad. Although Romney would have preferred that a second stimulus be passed under Bush, who "understood much more than [Democrats] the crucial role played by tax cuts," the former Massachusetts governor wrote in his book that "the 'all-Democrat' stimulus that was passed in early 2009 will accelerate the timing of the start of the recovery"—just "not as much as it could have" if the stimulus plan was designed the way that Romney would have preferred."
You see, Romney lies all of the time...probably in his sleep as well.
If this man makes it to the White House you will see some of the darkest days that this nation has seen. I'll stick by that statement because I have 'evolved' regarding my opinion of Romney. A few years ago I would have said that he would make a decent Republican candidate. I thought he was an honorable man. Then I began to watch him and to read about him. Now I know...and a vote for him is a vote corporate America.

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer Bans Funding Planned Parenthood - ABC News:
Ms Brewer states...
"This is a common sense law that tightens existing state regulations and closes loopholes in order to ensure that taxpayer dollars are not used to fund abortions, whether directly or indirectly," Brewer said in a statement. "By signing this measure into law, I stand with the majority of Americans who oppose the use of taxpayer funds for abortion.""

Okay, I oppose all of the wars and 99% of what the War Department does...I suppose I shouldn't pay my taxes. After all, there doesn't seem to be any way to separate the taxes spent on war from the taxes spent on those things that benefit us all.

Jan Brewer is an idiot.
