Quit whining!

I can’t even wrap my head around Minnesota’s Republican State Rep Andre Keiffer’s comments on equal pay legislation for women in her state.

Keiffer must be sharing a playbook with Texas GOP leader Beth Cubriel, who thinks women are just so “busy,” and we should learn to be better negotiators.

Ralph Reed is still stuck in the middle of the 20th century too. He thinks we can reduce the demand for food stamps by making divorces harder to obtain for women who have children.

We need more Elizabeth Warrens and Al Frankens in all levels of government.

You can watch the shouting matching here or read about it. And by the way, we don’t get paid what we’re worth and we ought to be.















This piece from The Weekly Sift, The Distress of the Privileged, is worth a read too (It’s long but will be time well spent).

UGA and Emory journalism professor Rebecca Burns has a keen piece in Politico on why Tuesday’s snow was such a disaster. Burn’s points here also hold true for the multitude of problems that will occur when the Braves move to Cobb County (add heat and humidity to the picture then).

Jay Bookman  writes about Georgia’s bare bones budgeting, and what it means for our state.
