Time for progress!
Women have been fighting for equality and respect throughout the ages, but apparently the people at Fox News want to preserve the caveman mentality of their TV personalities and viewers.
Fox News host Clayton Morris argued over the weekend that women “breadwinners” could be emasculating men by violating their “innate” biology.
On the Sunday edition of Fox & Friends, Morris asked several guests if there was a “problem” after a Pew Research Center study released earlier this month found that about 25 percent of women made more than their husbands....
As a woman, I'm just tired of these small-minded, right wing, Neanderthal men that continue to be paraded before the public. Women deserve equal pay for equal work. Period.
*** Republican Rep. Darrell Issa wants more hearings on Benghazi. This time, Issa wants to bring in Secretary of State John Kerry in front of the committee.
Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) on Friday subpoenaed Secretary of State John Kerry to testify on the 2012 attack on the American diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya.....
...The top Democrat on the Oversight Committee, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), slammed Issa's move as a continuation of an increasingly partisan pattern of behavior....
....He also noted that Issa opposed subpoenaing then-Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice in 2007 in the years-long investigation of phony Iraq War evidence, during which Issa then decried "the inappropriateness of hauling the secretary of state … out of the performance of her job.”
During the eight years of President George W. Bush, most of the world was neglected because of the Bush administration's focus on an unnecessary war in Iraq. Now, President Obama has had to spend years cleaning up the mess left behind by his predecessor.
Issa has spent millions of dollars investigating the IRS and Benghazi for his own political gain.
It is time for Issa and the prehistoric folks at Fox News to move forward. We need progress.
