Week in Review
The Democrats tell women that Republicans have a war on women. They, after all, don’t want to pay for their birth control. They don’t want to allow them to have an abortion. And they defend businesses that only pay women 77 cents to every dollar a man earns. Yes, Republicans may prefer seeing women as something other than sexual objects. Preferring they marry, raise a family and live happily ever after. Instead of just being sexual play things. While Democrats tell women that the only thing important to them at election time is birth control and abortion. But that gender pay gap is simply not true (see Gender Pay Gap: When You’ve Lost Slate… by Walter Olson posted 1/30/2014 on Cato).
White House speechwriters couldn’t resist sticking an applause line into President Obama’s State of the Union speech about how women supposedly earn only 77 cents to every dollar a man earns in America. Even more depressing, it drew some of the night’s biggest applause. But as almost everyone familiar with the numbers has had reason to know for years and years, it simply isn’t true. Most, if not all, of the gap melts away once you factor in variables such as hours worked, choice of occupation, and midcareer family interruption, among others.
The big applause can only mean one of two things. Either that those applauding are very ignorant of the facts they are debating. Not a good quality in a representative of the people. Or that they are lying about the facts. Which is also not a good quality in a representative of the people. So which is it? Well, let’s see. Are there any examples of Democrats lying to get something they want? Why, yes there is. The lie of the year. When President Obama said if you like your health insurance you can keep it. Period. It turns out that Obamacare wouldn’t work if people kept the health insurance they liked. So they wrote the law to make it impossible for that to happen.
So there is a history of telling big lies. Lies so big that they win the title of lie of the year. So one would have to conclude that they are knowingly lying about the gender pay gap. But why? Because women are 50% of the electorate. That’s why. And if they don’t scare or anger them into voting Democrat they may just vote based on the facts. And vote Republican.

Week in Review
President Obama won reelection in 2012 because, apparently, people hate the rich. And they hate corporations. When Mitt Romney said corporations are people the opposition pounced on that. As the masses believe corporations are evil entities that serve only profits. And Satan. They hate corporations with a passion. And the rich people that run them. That’s why President Obama wants to raise tax rates. Not to raise tax revenue. For these proposed tax hikes may fund the government for maybe 8 days. If we’re lucky. No. These tax rates are to punish the rich. Who have raped and pillaged this country so they can live their caviar and champagne lifestyles.
According to President Obama the young should shun these corporations and do something better with their lives. Like working for a nonprofit. By doing something where we give. Not get rich. For that is being a good American in these Obama times. We shouldn’t pursue meaningless high-paying jobs. Instead we should get a low-paying social services job. Or work in a food kitchen. Anything is better than working for these most evil and vile corporations (see What Did Marissa Mayer Mean in a Year When 86% of Executives Were Still Men? by Rebecca Greenfield posted 12/11/2012 on The Atlantic Wire).
As of June, women held a mere 14.3 percent of executive positions at Fortune 500 companies, according to new data from Catalyst, reports Bloomberg’s Brooke Sutherland. That 1.4 percent increase from last year represents a “glacial pace,” the report states…
And it’s difficult to find signs of change elsewhere. Of the 71 leaders ranked in a new Forbes list of the world’s most powerful people, only four women made the cut…
As for the future of female CEOs, the gender pay-gap is still alive and well, even for fresh college graduates.
All right, I’m confused. If corporations are so evil and serve Satan why is it so important for women to become rich CEOs at them?
This is the general consensus on the Left. Who are not happy about glass ceilings. Or gender pay-gaps.
If we pay CEOs too much why are they so concerned that female CEOs earn less than their male counterparts? If we want to reduce CEO compensation we should applaud these women for doing just that. These women may just be choosing not to rape and pillage the people with high prices. With less profits (a good thing according to everyone on the Left) there’s less money to pay their CEO. Or perhaps they aren’t drawing a large paycheck so their employees can have bigger paychecks.
Women are more nurturing and feeling. We hear it all of the time. It’s why we need more women in Congress. Who will listen to the poor instead of the lobbyists. Perhaps this is why there are so few female CEOs. Because they are too nurturing and feeling to maximize profits for their shareholders. Because profits are bad. Or so the Left has told them all of their life from public school through college. Institutions all controlled by the Left. And more women did vote for President Obama than the rich CEO Mitt Romney. Showing their disdain for corporate profits. Perhaps shareholders noticed this general trend and prefer greedy, heartless, male sons of bitches to run their corporations so they will maximize their profits. Someone who doesn’t favor birth control and abortion over profits, a driving factor in why women voted for President Obama according to exit polls.
So what are corporations? Evil? Or so good that we need more women running them? They can’t be both. They can’t be the source of everything that is wrong in this country while at the same time we criticize them for not having more women running them. If they’re evil we should applaud the fact that few women run them and that we don’t pay those that do a lot. If they’re not evil we need to stop attacking them. And blaming our budget deficits on them.
