Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:
Did you know Minnesota women only make 80 percent of what men make?
Thankfully, on Mother’s Day, Governor Mark Dayton took bold, decisive action to end this discrimination against women.
Dayton says the new law is intended to create equality, opportunities and protections for women. I confidently predict that one year from today, it will have accomplished none of them.
What it actually will accomplish is Good Feelings for having Done Something with Noble Intentions unlike those Hateful Republicans who wage War on Womyn just in time for Election. That, with the help of willing accomplices in the media such as the CBS story above, the new law will accomplish in spades.
It’s the very definition of a “Chanting Point”.
