Better hurry Energydude, before the fad ends.

I'm still pissed I threw away my paint stained jeans and overalls. Dumb hipsters would've sold me everything they've owned to have them. Those we're very fashionable, for like 1 week or however long fads last these days.

Image isn't true, when poor people aren't in club, they're everywhere outdoor in suburb with guy (drinking) team, shop sell much low than club, if you want come finland and Helsinki, you may pay 15 beer. Ok they're peace people, why? Dweller in suburb. I've seen neat woman about 40yo, but in there men. Ok what about pub in Finland? Murder risky, and then drug selling that cheap beers. If want be drinking, so go to suburb , and find new friend in park

This is on-par with those Mario challenges where you have to do something at the split second to win. But cool enough, to say "I'm beyond the sky!"

Currently writing up my essay on the Vietnam war with a focus on Eisenhower and Dien Bien Phu (and the Geneva Conference of 1954).

Hoooowever, my research was entirely derailed by Syngman Rhee, I swear to god this man is just unbelievably hilarious. For instance 3 weeks into the peace talks he was pleading the Americans to aid in a join invasion of the Chinese mainland to really stick it to the Commies (I bet this inspired many right wingers in Capitol Hill ^^'). If only the Americans weren't so war weary from Korea or the brewing troubles of the failure of the French in Indochina we could've seen this Old Goat lead South Korea in the charge against the Soviets (he even threatened to do it alone for goodness sake ^^). Apparently he wept, yelled and threatened, most of his antics were put down as 'Oriental Mentality' tho.

Polish right-wing at its finest



In France we have socialists in power and the difference between men/women incomes remained of about 1/5, didn't move even 1% since they parasitized the power. On radio we daily hear left-journalists explaining that correcting the issue would destroy business so it must stay that way, for now. Another example: the top 25 best payed Hollywood actors are 90% men while the whole consortium doesn't miss once on bragging about how awesome and pro-equality/tolerance they are. Also should I recall that our own french movie corporation, which is socialist up to nails and toes, appointed Roman Polansky, a convicted rapist wanted by US, as director to 2017 Cesar Awards, and only after this nomination sparked outrage, with 200k signatures against, he had to drop?  

Is easier to take a dumb and senile depute and make him responsible -also dishonestly suggesting that it is his political side who plays in, while the powerful corporations use the double standards in all impunity so they can keep profits.

Is that senile and dumb guy an elected member of the parliament for representing the right-wing? Is it anybody else who puts in his mouth the opinions he speak of? Is he a typical example, not exactly maybe but what I read about Polish conservatism, he's not exactly marginal to the point of exceptional either: They are kind of like the Catholic Saudi Arabia of Europe.

If you want to criticize French socialists, be my guest. I don't see the relevance though.

Weird that you can't connect dots between your own words. You specified "right-wing at his finest" then believe is irrelevant when showed that left wing at "its finest" can also take dumb or unfair decisions. Is not about criticizing, but going to the factual roots: everyone acts same but hides behind more or less soapy excuses. Why women are payed less than men? Because the majority of those handling both the social aspect and the financial tap believe men are better than women. Which is, factually, not any different from what this guy is saying.

I think it's obvious that "at its finest" was sarcasm, Sal. And there is a difference between saying "correcting the issue would destroy business so it must stay that way, for now" and "of course, it should be that way since women are smaller, weaker and less intelligent." One can be seen as a dissatisfactory lame ass excuse but the other is directly conforming the situation as the "natural order of things." Changing things is hard and nobody has a magic wand but one can at least acknowledge that change on such an issue is something desirable and that's not nothing.

De facto (statistically) or legally? They don't have a law that orders to pay women less either.

De facto and legally.  The only case where a mowan can find herself conned is if she works at a private company or office without being declared to the state. Meaning the employer doesn't declare here as his employee so that he doesn't have to pay taxation for her to the fisc. And that's illegal.

Otherwise, same wage.

Well, I've seen a lot of statistics comparing countries and in none of them there was any country with an absolutely equal pay data. So, I checked this, while Middle Eastern and North African countries are worst in this aspect compared to other regions, followed by Southern Asia, Algeria is one of the best among other Middle Eastern countries, from the link (2016 data):

The region's best performing countries -- excluding Israel -- this year are Qatar, Algeria and the United Arab Emirates, each having closed approximately 64 percent of their gender gap.

In Algeria, one of the few countries in the region where equal pay is enshrined in law, it has made significant progress on wage equality, estimated earned income and labour force participation.

Overall gender gap: Where Arab MENA (Middle East- North African) countries rank out of 144 countries worldwide:

Qatar 119
Algeria 120
UAE 124
Tunisia 126
Kuwait 128
Bahrain 131
Egypt 132
Oman 133
Jordan 134
Lebanon 135
Morocco 137
Saudi Arabia 141
Syria 142
Yemen 144

That's funny, as my mother has worked all her life and been paid the exact same. Plus to be honest, women are treated better than men at work, and they have more "work rights" if I may say. They can leave job earlier, have full paid maternity leave of 3 months minimum, access jobs lightly easier than men, and can retire from work with five years less than man and have the same pansion (to have 1000 euros as a pansion, a man has to work 32 years and be 65, where a woman can be 60 despite not having the 32 years, leave and have the 1000 euros)... etc.

Women are controlling us lol
