Re: “Why are white men turning on women?

Chris and Ron, I know right. Men should stop whining about laws that force them to raise children which are not theirs. They should quietly suck it up and hand over their paychecks. Their grievances are unimportant and should be summarily dismissed because, you know, patriarchy.

Attorney General Alan Wilson you will be forever known as being on the wrong side of history. Just like George Wallace in Alabama I hope you can live with that as well as all your children and their children will have to.

Great talent, lucky to have Whitt and his brothers around here...would hate to think of him ever having to sling shrimp at tourists ever again.

Re: “Why are white men turning on women?

Katie-

It is not a "generalization" that women are less likely to negotiate: http://www.npr.org/blogs/money/2014/04/08/300290240/why-women-dont-ask-for-more-money ... speaking of assumptions, however, what makes you think I'm white? Or that, supposing I am, that I'm of an age where I benefit from that 5% advantage (since, as I noted, there is hardly any wage gap b/w male and female millennials entering the job mkt).

As for your posted critiques of the study I cited, they don't disprove the study, they just disagree w/ it. Further, they don't provide any evidence for the conventional claim that women earn 77 cents on the dollar AFTER controlling for relevant factors. That pernicious lie is simply untrue. No, the Consad study was not exhaustive, but at present it appears to be the most comprehensive analysis of the available data.

Re: “Government has no place in economic development

"The problem is that if City/County/State A throws tax dollars at a company to convince them to build a new plant there and City/County/State B doesn't - the company will choose the former."

But conservatives always say the government doesn't create jobs so your scenario is moot.

Re: “Why are white men turning on women?

Why does Martin Luther King get a holiday but Bob Costas does not? Two of the greatest orators the world has ever known and of course we only honor the black one. I have millions more examples of the second-class status of white men. Let my people go!

Re: “Why are white men turning on women?

Since women want ( and deserve) equality; why aren't they lined up protesting their lack of draft cards?

When is it going to be the white man's time? This persecution must end. We don't even have a White History Month!

Re: “Why are white men turning on women?

Women are less likely to negotiate higher salaries? Thanks for that generalization, where did that one come from? Also, ever thought that maybe more women aren't higher as engineers vs. teachers because of further sexism within those fields that keeps women from reaching those higher paid positions? That exists too.

Corporations are often filled with the men's club mentality, hence why they aren't eager to include women into their ranks.

Here are the articles I was referring to against CONSAD:

http://amptoons.com/blog/2010/11/26/how-the-consad-report-on-the-wage-gap-masks-sexism-instead-of-measuring-it/

"It's not conclusive" http://www.foxbusiness.com/economy-policy/2014/04/02/pay-gap-is-alive-and-well-and-hurting-women/

Just Google CONSAD and you'll find other materials as well.

And of course the non-existent 5% pay gap wouldn't bother you, you're not the one at the bottom. That is white male privilege at it's finest right there. If these tides turned I know a lot of you would be feeling a lot differently.

Keith, If you want polygamy, go to Utah and be a mormon. If you are being sarcastic then you may be a troll. The marriage fight is for monogamous and committed relationships among TWO consenting unrelated adults of the opposite or same sex.

Re: “Government has no place in economic development

Government is too incompetent to help people, but we should totes entrust it to wage war, kill and imprison people.
