#BernOuts Explained – They Covet What They Don’t Have

A funny image, indeed! It is also, however, very pointed in its humor and very fundamentally true in its message. The primary reason for Bernie Sanders’ aborted rise to provenance and his continued employment and occasional news coverage was based upon the #BernOuts and #Sandernistas coveting what they didn’t earn and don’t have. In point of fact, Bernie’s entire platform could have been summed in the word, “Envy.”

Yes, they envy what they don’t have and hate those that have it. In their entitled mindset, it’s just not fair that they don’t get anything and everything they want, when they want it, and without the need to work for- or make sacrifices in order to get it. That’s the #BernOuts explained in a nutshell.

Fauxcahontas’ Failure

Fauxcahontas' Failures Are MyriadFauxcahontas’ Failure Of Gendered Wages

Once again Massachusetts’ Elizabeth Warren aka the Waba Squaw aka Fauxcahontas has made ripples across the internet and, once again, it’s because of her own failure. This time it’s her failure to “walk” as he “talks.”

In 2016, the Waba Squaw ranted that Equal Pay Day was a A National Day Of Embarrassment.

Today is Equal Pay Day, and by the sound of it, you would think it’s some sort of historic holiday commemorating the anniversary of a landmark day that our country guaranteed equal pay for women. But that’s not what this is about. Not even close.

I cannot believe we’re still standing here debating whether a woman should get fired for asking what the guy down the hall makes.

#EqualPayDay isn’t a national day of celebration. It’s a national day of embarrassment.

The game is rigged against women and families, and it has to stop. It is 2016, not 1916, and it’s long past time to eliminate gender discrimination in the workplace.

So far, that was just another tired rendition of the annual Feminist screed about women’s wages vs. those of men. Prima facie, it’s no more of a failure than any of its predecessors were or its successors will be. The specific failure on Fauxcahontas’ part was that she either didn’t know or didn’t that her own house was not in order.

It seems that Warren pays her female staffers significantly less than she does her male ones. Indeed, apparently the gendered “wage gap” in her staff outstrips America’s national average.

Last year’s figures, showing that women earned 79.6 percent of what men earned, put Equal Pay Day on Tuesday April 4, more than three months into the calendar year.

However, women working for Warren were paid just 71 cents for every dollar paid to men during the 2016 fiscal year, according to a Washington Free Beacon analysis.

The median annual earnings for women staffers, $52,750, was more than $20,000 less than the median annual earnings for men, $73,750, according to the analysis of publicly available Senate data.

When calculated using average salaries rather than median, the pay gap expands to just over $26,051, or about 31 percent.

Consistent with previous Free Beacon analyses of Senate salary data, only full-time staffers who were employed for the entire period in question were included in the calculations.

It be easy to just chalk this up to yet more hypocrisy from a Leftist, but think that’s unfair. I tend to think of it as more of an unavoidable failure on Fauxcahontas’ part than it is hypocrisy. I’m fairly sure that Warren wanted to have a more equal pay distribution by gender but couldn’t manage to do it because there were simply not enough women who were equally or better qualified for the mid-to-higher positions which she needed filled, which in turn skewed to average in favor of men. This also seems to me to compounded by men being more likely to bargain for higher starting salaries than women seem to be.

You see, the “Wage Gap,” as it is so often presented, is a pernicious myth that is promulgated by certain sorts to fulfill their own agendas and line their own pocketbooks.

Let’s all face facts. If this supposed “Wage Gap” actually existed as it is presented rather than as the result of the average woman’s work-life balance choices, this have created what amounted to an arbitrage opportunity in terms of human capital that even moderately business savvy people would have already exploited to great effect. They would have form firms comprised solely or primarily of these underpaid women and out-competed other firms with their comparatively over-paid men. The result of this arbitrage would have been to inevitably to close such gaps until they were no larger than the transaction costs of the arbitrage endeavor. But, of course, there’s no visible signs of this ever having happened…

Practice Is Meaningless

Practice Is Meaningless If You Choke In ActionPractice Is Meaningless If You Choke In Action

Despite having had seven years to come up with a working solution to the wrecked junker that is ObamaCare, Congressional Republicans choked when practice became reality. This was something that I feared would happen though, so I’m at least not shocked by it.

It's like a facehugger but not as pleasantRemoving May Take Longer Than We Thought

Please understand, however, that I always knew that the process of repealing and possibly replacing ObamaCare would be exact that, a process. I also truly do understand that it will be what most of us would consider a long and painful process.

The Democrats, quasi-led and certain sheltered by their precious token, Obama, made sure that ObamaCare would be nigh on impossible to repeal. It’s octopuslike – some would say Cthuhluian – tentacles stretch around and strangle the entirety of our nation healthcare and health insurance systems. That’s a hard thing to remove at a stroke.

Still though, the GOP has had seven freaking years to come up with a treatment plan. So far, going by their first effort – if one can call it that with a straight face, all that time for practice has been wasted.
