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…

On Gorsuch

Neil Gorsuch proved this week during his US Supreme Court confirmation hearings that he’s a fine, smart judge, a better than decent man, and a fine American patriot. None of that, however, matters in the least in these degenerate times.

Dems views on Gorsuch Changed a lot
Dems’ “Views” On Gorsuch Have Changed A Lot In 11 Years

Gorsuch emerged from more than 20 hours of grueling interrogation largely unscathed and barely ruffled, having politely but firmly schooled most Senate Democrats who invented excuses to paint him as some sort of villain out to destroy “marginalized” people.

Many would see this as an odd and completely hypocritical turnaround by Senate Democrats since, in 2007 not one of them complained about his appointment to the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals. In my opinion, however, this is less than perfectly true.


Dems Are Just Getting Back To Their Roots

The titular adults of Democrat party don’t really have views on Neil Gorsuch. They don’t even have that strong of views on his being President Trump’s current SCOTUS nominee. All the Dems can see is an appointee that they fully expect the Senate Republicans to support. Therefor, they automatically will throw tantrums and take any steps that they can to block Gorsuch’s nomination or, at the very least, attempt to make it look to their constituencies that they did everything and anything in their power to do so. In all truth, they’re just getting back to their roots and their original position on nominees. That’s why on Thursday, March 23, 2017 Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer announced that he would lead a filibuster against Gorsuch’s confirmation.

Again though, None of that matters in the least in these degenerate times. After eight years of Democrats blocking any and all of President Bush Jr.’s appointees, Senate Republican chose to return the favor – with interest – whenever Obama tried to appoint someone to office, judicial or otherwise. This, in turn, led to Harry Reid’s now infamous 2013 decision to enact the “Nuclear Option,” which Republicans have also been more than happy to return with interest.

So really, on the topic of Gorsuch’s nomination – which will happen – ignore all the ranting; ignore all claims of taking the high rode and the complaints about all the ranting; and ignore any possible benefit or detriment to we, the People. This is all and only about two groups of children with adult authority having a protracted slap fight.

The Lamestream Enemedia’s Alternative Facts

Above is a perfectly example of how America’s lamestream enemedia’s alternative facts and/or how they chose to respond to or not respond to empirical facts in evidence led to them being jack slapped by President Trump. It also explains why the vast majority of true-born, rightly-raised Americans are smiling in satisfaction about it.
