Q: Do you know who Michelle Williams is?

I bet you know who Mark Wahlberg is

 

But she thinks she should be paid the same as Mark simply because she's a woman.

Liberals continue shooting themselves in the foot

Seems like a crock of stupid bullshit to me.

 

If Mark and Michelle were working next to each other on a factory production line assembling widgets, doing the same job then I'd agree, they should be paid the same.

 

But they're not. They're working in an industry where you cash in on your fame, or brand name. Mark Wahlberg apparently has a brand that sells more movies then Michelle Williams so he charges more.

 

If Michelle had a business selling some no name handbags and Mark was selling Gucci bags in the same mall she couldn't complain that he was making more because he was a man so I don't see what the difference is here.

I am definitely not a progressive but for young people and progressives things are going to get much better now that all this crap is in the public.

 

Lincoln came in third party (republican) and wiped out the existence of the Whig party.

 

A good young progressive can wipe out the democrat party and start a progressive party.

 

I can't believe progressives have not figured out the democrats sold out to corporate money and were scared as hell of Bernie Sanders. So after they lose, they make up the Russia collusion narrative, to distract and keep progressives pissed off at Trump but not demand change in policies.

 

Russia, loved by Teddy Kennedy (leaks during the Reagan years) and Obama, "tell Putin I can be more flexible after my reelection", all of sudden Russia is the enemy conspiring with Trump. Russia, a country that only spends 50 billion a year on defense, when we spend 50 billion just on nuclear missiles. Russia, a country with a GDP that is lower than Fu@@ing South Korea.

 

Traditionally democrats have been for Russia alliances and friendship, distrustful of police, FBI and the CIA, and now they are fuc* buddies with each other.

 

So now more resources and money will go to the FBI and the CIA, more weapons to fight the evil Russia, all the things democrats have screamed against for years and they caused this to happen.

 

What in the hell happen to the democratic party, even though I may lean right, an occasional push left is necessary for making society better, not being shoved left is a good thing, but this is completely gone now. People are supposed to believe in something when they are young and not care when they get older, but who is giving the young a reason to vote and believe in anything. I just can't believe a law professor did not understand that if he went to far, he could destroy the party and set back progress for a generation. What a stupid fool.

A cherry pick.
There are presenters who have had their entire careers side by side, are equally well-known, yet the woman gets significantly less than the male presenter. Perceived salary imbalance is not a misunderstanding, it's real.

Never heard of her, and the gender pay gap is a myth.

Look at this. If people get together on their own time and decide to have consensual sex parties, that's discrimination ? Mind you these are people in an industry not a particular company (because they know each other). 

 

If you're a guy and not into sex parties you simply choose not to participate.

 

But according to the book in this article, a woman who isn't interested in sex parties feels as if they most go along and it's mens  fault.

A:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
