I agree entirely that a woman doing the same work, working the same shifts & hours & having to put in the same physical effort, for example Fire fighters, bus drivers, coal miners, police officers, should be paid exactly the same money as their male counterparts. The problem comes when you get women working 9am till 5pm in a centrally heated, air conditioned office shuffling pieces of paper, demand the same pay rate as a man working for the same company but who works outside all or most of the time in all weather conditions and as to work from 7am till 5.30pm using his physical strength to move heavy equipment and materials.

To women in Congress: Either vote to close the gender gap, or cut your own wages by 1/3, just to put yourselves on an equal footing with the rest of us. It's not right if YOU should get "equal pay for equal work" while denying it to the rest of us. And don't give me that "Life isn't fair" BS--I don't accept that as an excuse for bad behavior and neither should you.

Dear, dear, just listen to yourselves. You are carrying on like women are people actually equal to men, that they can actually do math or solve problems or that they do not become mentally unstable every 28 days or are capable of making their own medical decisions. Have you never read the Bible, they are chattel, they are breeding stock, they are the source of Original Sin, the sight of them causes rape. And you people think that they deserve equal treatment and compensation in the work place. Ha, Ha, Ha, Ha!
Sorry but some times I have to shove my head up my ass, turn my brain off and pretend to be an Elected Repug Tea Bagger.
