Doomed (his words not mine - I think this is great!!)

Good news ladies and all minorities!!! Obama signed the Lily Ledbetter Act into law today!!! Now what dot he fr's have to say about this? Poor Stan and Bob Batterbee are fit to be tied!!! Now us mean ol wimmin folk will be better able to stand up against female hatred from these men because we will make the same amount they do. These poor poor menfolk are losing their control. And we all know what happens when their kind loses control don't we? I feel for their wives if a woman was stupid enough to marry them. They are probably suffering tonight. First Obama gives money to increase support enforcement (which any single parent relying on the govt to collect child support will tell you the govt needs help in this area) and now horror of horrors - how dare this evil man sign this stupid law into effect? Why he is only making fathers a dying breed.

Get a clue guys!!!!!

From Stan:

To the Judas Escariots among us, we will all reap what you have sown. Here is another reward to the feminists for voting as a recognizable block. What did you do to help us vote in unity against our admitted and sworn enemies? You argued for and voted for these same enemies.
To those divorced and beat dead men who voted for Obama and Biden, we give you credit for another great job well done in helping to destroy fathers, men, families, and our country. This is another law based on one of the The Great Feminist Lies. It will be only one of many. We still have not seen 1% of the feminist agenda that Barak will force down America's throat. This is only the first week of his Presidency and we have $1 Billion for CSE and now the Ledbetter Law. He will pick up steam in the coming weeks. Brace yourselves.

Obama signs equal-pay bill
By PHILIP ELLIOTT, Associated Press Writer Philip Elliott, Associated Press Writer 7 mins ago WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama signed an equal-pay bill into law Thursday before cheering labor and women leaders who fought hard for it and the woman whose history-making lawsuit gave impetus to the cause.Obama, choosing the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act as the first bill to sign as president, called it a "wonderful day" and declared that ending pay disparities between men and woman an issue not just for women, but for all workers.With Ledbetter standing by his side, Obama said she lost more than $200,000 in salary, and even more in pension and Social Security benefits losses that she "still feels today." He then signed the measure that effectively nullifies a 2007 Supreme Court decision and makes it easier for workers to sue for discrimination by allowing them more time to do so."Making our economy work means making sure it works for everyone," Obama said. "That there are no second class citizens in our workplaces, and that it's not just unfair and illegal — but bad for business — to pay someone less because of their gender, age, race, ethnicity, religion or disability."Ledbetter said she didn't become aware of the large discrepancy in her pay until she neared the end of her 19-year career at a Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. plant in Gadsden, Ala, and she filed a lawsuit. But the high court held in a 5-4 decision that she missed her chance to bring the action.Obama appeared before a jammed East Room audience, and his entrance and many lines of his brief remarks were met with happy applause and yells.He paid special tribute to Ledbetter, who fought for the bill even though it won't allow her to recover any money for herself.And in the room were the living symbols of this fight: Nancy Pelosi, first woman speaker of the House, and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, who took her pursuit of the presidency further than any other woman, even though she ultimately lost to Obama in the Democratic primary season.Of Ledbetter, Obama exclaimed: "This grandmother from Alabama kept on fighting, because she was thinking about the next generation."First lady Michelle Obama hosted a reception after the ceremony in the State Dining Room.Ledbetter became a regular feature in Obama's campaign for the White House, addressing the Democratic National Convention in Denver last year and traveling to Washington aboard Obama's train for the inauguration ceremonies. Obama spoke strongly in support of legislation to change the Supreme Court decision during his campaign and the Democratic-controll ed Congress moved it to the top of the agenda for the new session that opened this month.The high court had a person must file a claim of discrimination within 180 days of a company's initial decision to pay a worker less than it pays another worker doing the same job. Under the new bill, given final passage in Congress this week, every new discriminatory paycheck would extend the statute of limitations for another 180 days.Congress attempted to update the law to extend the time, but the Bush White House and Senate Republicans blocked the legislation in the last session of CongressOpponents contended the legislation would gut the statute of limitations, encourage lawsuits and be a boon to trial lawyers. They also argued that employees could wait to file claims in hopes of reaping larger damage awards. The bill does not change current law limiting back pay for claimants to two years.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."Today, in the year 2009, countless women are still losing thousands of dollars in salary, income and retirement savings over the course of a lifetime," he said.This is more than just a women's issue, said Obama."It's about parents who find themselves with less money for tuition or child care; couples who wind up with less to retire on; households where, when one breadwinner is paid less than she deserves, that's the difference between affording the mortgage or not; between keeping the heat on, or paying the doctor's bills or not," Obama said. The measure, which amends the 1964 Civil Rights Act, also applies to discrimination based on factors such as race, religion, national origin, disability or age.
