Our Government continues to pass laws, supposedly for the benefit of “we the people.” Many of these laws, if not most, are just to quiet the demands of one of any number of special interest groups. Groups that think their cause trumps the majority of the population. A lot of these laws are just feel-good band aids meant to calm down the ignorant masses (that’s us, folks).
Politicians tell us what the new law is supposed to accomplish. They tell us how it will help us. If we’re smart, we know it will only help a certain segment of society. And, if we’re very smart, we know they rarely tell us the truth. They rarely give us anything other than the talking points that will speak to our emotions, and get the far extremes of both parties excited about it – both pro and con. They leave the murky hidden depths of the laws behind closed doors. Or, actually lie right to our collective faces. Sadly, some think that is okay, as long as the government takes care of them so that they don’t have to think for themselves.
In light of Obama’s newest Executive Order, I decided to gather further information on the wage gap in America. I encourage you to check out the article on this subject on the IWF – Independent Women’s Forum – website. Like me, you may not agree with every facet of the article, but I hope you find it as enlightening as I did. Also, watch the following video titled Straight Talk About the Wage Gap, also from IWF.
