Paycheck Fairness, Ledbetter and the "Walmart Women"

I'm no attorney, but I think I'm safe in saying that - had Congress passed that pesky Paycheck Fairness Act (about which I wrote here and mid-page here) instead of Lilly Ledbetter, the "Walmart Women" would have had some real muscle behind their fight for equality.

Maybe, they would've been able to use pages 8 - 11 of Paycheck's amendments to the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938 (29 U.S.C. 216(b) to skip the Supremes altogether, rather than having this cruel joke played on them:  "The Supreme Court sides with Wal-Mart."

Pelosi and the Changeling, with their respective, bamboozle-cum-hoodwink little jigs, had so many women believing he'd rode in on his white horse and saved the damned day, that Ms. Magazine got this absolutely hilarious cover out -- PDQ (Come on now, tell the truth and shame the devil -- how many of you ran right out and made them a lot of money buying their little poster?).

Congress and the Changeling, with the Supremes bringing up the rear with this ruling, have told women - in no uncertain terms - "We will do nothing to change the status quo so - just stay in your damned place!

UPDATE:  "It's Time For Congress To Act On The Paycheck Fairness Act"  Well, at least one Congress Critter had the 'nads to tell the truth!
