Code Pink pour buckets of dirt on their heads in solidarity with Gaza

Taking a cue from the actually useful #ALSIceBucketChallenge, Code Pink is in front of the White House Thursday night taking the #RubbleBucketChallenge. The group’s Facebook page explains:

Fixed it for you! Equal Pay Day finally gets the name it deserves

http://twitter.com/#!/amandacarpenter/status/453570770506375168

How ’bout both?

The myth that a woman makes just 77 cents for every dollar a man with the same experience earns — for equal work — has been thoroughly, repeatedly debunked. And yet here we are again, watching the dishonest Obama administration’s pitiful attempt to spin away the White House pay gap as it tortures the data to push “Equal Pay Day.”

Just stop.

Hey, White House, forget the Equal Pay Day chicanery. One generous Twitter user has a more honest suggestion (and conveniently, it can be used 365 days a year):

White House Press Secretary added insult to injury after spotting CNN making a different goof:

TFW Lauren Duca tweets there should be no men ANYWHERE and gets dragged by Ben Shapiro

As more and more news comes out about predators in Hollywood, D.C. and the media, we should be able to look toward strong, well-balanced, rational feminists for words of wisdom about how women are strong and capable, while recognizing that some men are also victims. Right? Oh wait, it’s 2017, what were we THINKING?!

This is a response from a ‘feminist’:

Just because we’ve become accustomed to the White House Twitter feed inserting pictures of President Obama in tweets that are supposedly honoring anniversaries and birthdays of people, places and things otherwise unrelated to the president doesn’t mean they ever cease to amuse:

ISIS can wait. What we need to deal with right now is raising the minimum wage:

In the 2014 State of the Union address, President Obama called on Congress to raise the national minimum wage from $7.25 to $10.10 an hour, and soon after signed an Executive Order to raise the minimum wage to $10.10 for the individuals working on new federal service contracts.

Raising the minimum wage nationwide will increase earnings for millions of workers, and boost the bottom lines of businesses across the country. While Republicans in Congress continue to block the President’s proposal, a number of state legislatures and governors, mayors and city councils, and business owners have answered the President’s call and raised wages for their residents and employees. Read a report on the progress that’s been made so far across the country.

Women especially are depending on that minimum wage hike:

Hmmm. Maybe the White House should think this through a little more:

@WhiteHouse That bag of groceries will cost 30% more and she'll still be struggling. Math.

— laurakfillault (@laurakfillault) October 8, 2014

.@WhiteHouse You know it would make that bag of groceries 30% more expensive…don't you?

@laurakfillault @instapundit @WhiteHouse Nope…she'll be out of a job.

— Brad Hope (@Brad_Hope) October 8, 2014

@WhiteHouse It will increase prices every where. This will not help

@WhiteHouse Let's make millions of women unemployed by raising the minimum wage.

@WhiteHouse Let's raise the cost of goods and services everywhere ensuring more poverty and reliance on welfare by raising the minimum wage.

— Robert Dietrich (@RobertDietrich4) October 8, 2014

@WhiteHouse Let's drive more women from the labor force because that's the best way to make unemployment lower.

.@WhiteHouse You realize those groceries will have been checked out at a kiosk and not by a cashier right? Dummies. #RaiseTheWage

While the White House is chewing on that food for thought, here’s something for the rest of us to ponder:

The president wasn’t available at the White House to witness the protest; he golfed today before heading to Camp David.

 

 

 

‘Spinulation’: Earnest says 2014 ‘not a true national election’

http://twitter.com/#!/gtcanhelp/status/529377173988442112

The White House isn’t feeling to well about tomorrow’s elections. First Joe Biden has already started talking about Republicans “compromising” and now Josh Earnest is saying tomorrow isn’t a ‘true national election.’

sour-grapes

Wait. The President said that?  Oh, yes he did.

Let him be clear…

Awkward.

Heh.

Wasn’t he mostly focused on how to circumvent it though?

‘Have fun storming the White House’! Secret Service mocked over fence jumper

http://twitter.com/#!/freddoso/status/516690886202490880

As WaPo’s Carol Leonnig reported, the Secret Service apparently messed up even more than previously thought when it came to confronting White House fence jumper Omar Gonzalez. And now, the White House is paying the price … with the public:

I think the one issue uniting left and right in our country is that maybe the White House's security isn't totally great.

— Isaac Morrison (@Thorrison) September 29, 2014

If the Secret Service hasn’t done it already, hiring an image consultant would be a good next step.

So you're telling me the same agency that hired hookers in Colombia botched White House security? Who could have ever seen that coming…

— Hipster Serpico (@KimMarcumTexas) September 29, 2014

We're sure that the fence jumper isn't still in the White House now, correct?
