Shouldn’t the Media do some minimum research before it prints lies for Obama?

When I woke up and turned on my computer one of the news stories I saw was this, headlined: “Obama signs bill making equal-pay lawsuits easier.”

Please read the “news”story and see what you think. If I had zero information about the background I might have thought that the evil Supreme Court and Republicans were stil trying to keep women in their place especially that poor Ms. Ledbetter. But I DO have some background, apparently more than the AP does so I know the story is full of shit.

The good folks at Powerline had done some excellent research on their own about Ms. Ledbetter during the campaign since “The One” had made it an issue. Here is the post they had made in Sept about it:

Paul Mirengoff points out that Ms. Ledbetter is lying because her claim contradicts her own sworn testimony. Is it any surprise that such lies don’t alter the stance of “The One”? Nope because Democrats and Liberals never let a lie get in the way of their goal, as a matter of fact lies usually help them get to their goal. Mr. Mirengoff noticed the legislation as well and has posted again on the topic.

But there is one thing he missed and that is the comment in the AP, “Obama cited Census Bureau figures that women still receive only about 78 cents for every dollar that men get for doing equivalent jobs — “women of color even less,” he said.” That’s a lie, folks, disguised as statistics. And we all know what Churchill said. This lie in particular has been around for a long time and it proves the Nazis right that a lie repeated enough becomes the truth. You see those statistics look at the career span between men and women in “similar” jobs. So it will look at two candidates one male and one female who work from the time they get out of college until they are both 65 and notice that the man has made more. BUT they don’t take into account that the man has actually worked more hours because the woman has taken off 5-6 years to raise a child or whatever. They also do include that more often than not the man had worked many hours more per week at the office, say 70 hours as opposed to the woman’s 50 hours per week.

Now the funny part.

If you bring up those qualifiers as I have just done, you are accused of sexism. That’s right, because if you bring up those facts you are accused of not taking into account how difficult it is for a woman in business. You are told that women should not have to suffer because they sacrifice for their family.

What a crock of shit. You make choices in your life. EVERYONE does. Those choices mean that some things are more important to you. Once you have decided what is most important, whatever is left and left behind is NOT a sacrifice. Sacrifice is when you give up your most precious possession.  So to claim that women have sacrificed for their family means they didn’t really want the family, and to me that’s kind of messed up. Perhaps they should look at themselves instead of complaining about the “Phallacracy” is keeping them down. 

And here’s yet another good idea. Don’t LIE about your problem and expect sympathy from me, or any other person who can reason. Fortunately you have the Liberals to take you in, and “The One” to fall for your bullshit and change the world to accomodate your lies.

  1. I guess the answer to the core question is “no”.

    When you have the kind of power and the kind of presence that NBC and CNN and CBS and the New York Times have you can pretty much lie about anything you want to lie about.

    Very sad. But very true.

    The only way we put an end to this problem is to put an end to all of the above by refusing to read and/or watch them.

  2. The liberal social engineering legislation has to be done covertly, or wrapped in a gauze of lies, because it doesn’t pass the smell test to anyone who has a mind to consider the argument; and, because all of this social engineering is based in and focuses on feeling, empathy, and some subjective concept of justice, it can not be logically debated. Regardless of the facts of the matter, if you disagree you must be racist, sexist, or some other -ist word.

  3. Thank you both for chiming in. I agree with both of you. I think the only thing we can do is try to get the word out as often as possible and hope that some of it sticks in people’s minds. My hope is that if people hear the truth enough even if they don’t believe it at first hten when things finally go to hell and the man behind the curtain is exposed they may wake up to the facts.
