Again, it gets back to the projection issue most of these liberals have (see previous post). Of course republicans must be holding back women because democrats are doing it big time.......
Of course, the democrats are also supposedly big on "transparency" which probably explains the nondisclosure agreements.
A former North Carolina Democratic Party staffer was sexually harassed by a party official, made a financial settlement with the party and signed a non-disclosure agreement to keep the incident quiet.
“If this hits the media, the Democratic Party, our candidates, and our credibility are doomed in this election,” reads one email exchange between state Democratic leaders.
An email chain between those Democratic leaders, obtained by The Daily Caller, indicates the executive director of the North Carolina Democratic Party, Jay Parmley, and the alleged sexual harassment victim both signed non-disclosure agreements.
This anecdote is a perfect illustration of how liberal projection works.
You see, it's not the metal music fans with the prejudices towards gays; they couldn't give a shit about who Rob Halford sleeps with. It was Rob Halford who held the prejudice of metal fans as knuckle dragging neanderthals.
From my psychology 101 classes, I believed we called it "projection".
Here's how Wiki spells it out..............
Psychological projection or projection bias is a psychological defense mechanism where a person subconsciously denies his or her own attributes, thoughts, and emotions, which are then ascribed to the outside world, usually to other people. Thus, projection involves imagining or projecting the belief that others originate those feelings.
Seriously, in the past week, democrats have stepped in to the "projection" abyss big time.
Republicans have a "war on women" and yet it's the democrats who have a serious opinion about Ann Romney's "choice" to work at home and manage a family.
In the past week, it's democrats dropping Jew bags, kicking Asians out of DC, Calling Mormanism a cult derived from a child molester, and underpaying women on the presidential staff. It's not republicans.
And now we have Jay Thomas a liberal blowhard on Jews.................
It's like the guy who tried to paint me as a racist simply because I asked him why Detroit is such a dump when there hasn't been a republican in city government since the beginning of time.
I guess your average liberal mother never taught their children the lesson of "when you point a finger, there's three pointing back at you." But then again, they were "real women" so they were probably working "real" jobs and not wasting time with that whole child rearing thing.
“These are all fabrications that have been put out there in order to discourage people from meeting what I consider to be a core ethical and moral obligation: that is, that we look out for one another; that is, I am my brother’s keeper, I am my sister’s keeper. And in the wealthiest nation in the world right now we are neglecting to live up to that call.”
But has anyone in the media called out The One for his generosity towards his family members, especially his half brothers and sisters in Kenya?
Now the POTUS and VOTUS have released their tax returns do you think anyone will challenge Joe Biden for the paltry 1.5% he donated to charity last year?
But give the guy credit. Someone must have whispered in his ear and said "giving $300 a year isn't good PR" because he did ratchet up his donations to $5,500 this year.
But don't forget this guy gets free room and board as well as a full security detail on his principle home in Delaware. If those items were taxable (which they would be for any other profession), his percentage would be even more paltry.
As a tax preparer I generally don't judge people on the charitable donations because many people support family members or family friends that don't count as a tax deduction.
But I have no problem calling bullshit on a president and vice-president who want to call me stingy because I'm not all that fired up about paying more taxes for our government to waste.
I just wonder when the liberal media types are going to call out these clowns for the hypocrites they are.

Instead of Willies in Kenwood we're heading back to Cindy's Friendly Tavern.
So join me after work and let me buy you some drinks. It's the least I can do for all those people who will be paying for my health insurance.
If you are subject to the Buffett rule, first, you would never be seen at Cindy's but if you do want to slum a little, drop by. I'll role play Barack Obama and tell you how much of scourge you are to human life.
“He had every right to leave wherever he was and get back to where he wanted to be safely and this behavior is criminal. Not only was he relieved of his property after he was assaulted, but there were a lot of other things that were done to him that were disturbing to look at and we want to bring these people to justice,” said Baltimore City Police Det. Nicole Monroe.
The police report says his attackers stole his $1,300 watch, a $500 iPhone and an Audi car key worth $300.
“It’s awful, obviously, but you have to be careful on those days. You can’t be wandering around the streets,” said one resident.
Come visit our nice clean neighborhood in "Redville". I guarantee when you leave you'll still have your watch.

Former Washington DC Mayor, Marion Barry, is back in the news. He won a Democratic primary to seek re-election as a DC councilman last week and, in the middle of an incoherent victory speech, the 76-year old suddenly went a bit racist. “We've got to do something about these Asians coming in, opening up businesses – those dirty shops," he said. “They ought to go. I'll just say that right now, you know. But we need African-American businesspeople to be able to take their places, too.”
Barry has since apologised for his remarks, but not before confirming a general air of senility and superiority. He told the Washington Examiner that he was “one of the most successful elected officials in America,” and that he was doing “God’s work … I have made public service my ministry. God gave me a great brain, courage, charisma, vision and the kinds of things that make leaders.” Barry’s overlong, reckless career is a testament to the horribly broken state of local politics in DC. The city is a single party state that routinely neglects its constituents.
In a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder on Monday, obtained exclusively by The Daily Caller, a family member of George Zimmerman asked the nation’s top law enforcement officer why he has chosen to not arrest members of the New Black Panther Party for their rhetoric — some of which may fit the federal government’s definition of a hate crime — throughout the Trayvon Martin case.
The family member believes the reason Holder hasn’t made those arrests is because he, like the members of the New Black Panther Party, is black.
“I am writing you to ask you why, when the law of the land is crystal clear, is your office not arresting the New Black Panthers for hate crimes?” the family member wrote to Holder.
“The Zimmerman family is in hiding because of the threats that have been made against us, yet the DOJ has maintained an eerie silence on this matter. These threats are very public. If you haven’t been paying attention just do a Google search and you will find plenty. Since when can a group of people in the United States put a bounty on someone’s head, circulate Wanted posters publicly, and still be walking the streets?”
Even for Obama, who's both an avid golfer and staunch backer of women's rights, questions of gender equity have arisen. According to Mark Knoller of CBS News — who keeps close track of such matters — Obama has included women among his playing partners only twice in 93 rounds of golf since taking office.
The staffers in Washington and Chicago, the sources said, viewed Wasserman Schultz's insistence, over a period of months, on the hire as a matter of the chairwoman putting her own politics and fundraising ahead of the interests of the re-election campaign on one of the most delicate areas of politics and policy, Obama's relationship with the Jewish community. They also worried that the daughter of a powerful donor could be a difficult fit in what was theoretically a junior role.
The Democratic sources described the episode as the latest in a series of tensions between Wasserman Schultz's own agenda, focused on her Florida political career and her own broad fundraising base, and the interests of the re-elect. It was also the most recent incident in which the chairwoman, who Democrats had hoped would be a capable and visible spokeswoman for the president, has instead proved a distraction.
The years-old photographs from Gilbert's Facebook page were reported by the conservative Washington Free Beacon" the same day her hiring was announced — sending Democrats again into damage control on Jewish issues. The photographs played to the worst stereotypes of Jews' role in Democratic Party politics, picturing them clutching dollar bills and referring to themselves as “Jewbags” and the “Jew cash money team.”
Gilbert was not, however, fired over the story, to the surprise of some of her new colleagues.
Or how about the lack of diversity within the Obama campaign............
Geez....... if you were to watch TV, you'd think these were all tea party highlights.

For January 2012, the most recent month available, the average residential price was 11.43 cents per kilowatt hour, the average commercial price was 9.88 cents per kilowatt hour, and the average industrial price was 6.5 cents per kilowatt hour. The EIA noted that unseasonably warm weather reduced sales of electricity in many states.
The 2011 average price was 11.8 cents per hour for residential use, 10.32 cents for commercial, 6.89 for industrial. That set a record for the highest annual average for residential use electricity.
Rates have increased steadily in the past five to six years, even during the lengthy recession and a time of sluggish economic growth at best. Back in 2005, the average price was 9.45 cents per hour for residential use, 8.67 cents for commercial, 5.73 for industrial. That set a record for the highest annual average for residential use electricity. These price increases have come while demand has grown quite slowly; the EIA reports that from 2000 to 2009, increases in electricity demand averaged 0.5 percent per year.
USA Today noted in December: “Electric bills have skyrocketed in the last five years, a sharp reversal from a quarter-century when Americans enjoyed stable power bills even as they used more electricity. Households paid a record $1,419 on average for electricity in 2010, the fifth consecutive yearly increase above the inflation rate, a USA TODAY analysis of government data found. The jump has added about $300 a year to what households pay for electricity. That’s the largest sustained increase since a run-up in electricity prices during the 1970s.”
The joint filing credit the state offers to married individuals is a joke and does not nearly offset the marriage penalty residents pay when filing jointly.
With that said, while I was churning out tax returns on Easter Sunday, I decided to run a report off of my database to show the incomes of husbands and wives on my system.
Now for sure, this is not a true scientific sampling but I don't know what would make my client base an outlier to one.
So let's play a game. Give me the over under on how much more men make in my practice than women.
If you are to believe the leaders of the "masculist" movement, women make only 80 cents on the dollar male counterparts make.
So give me the over/under on the disparity?
I'll report the results on Thursday.
