    What do you call the opposite of a sore loser - a rub-it-in-your-face winner? It wasn't Trump last night. Trump spoke eloquently and politely of his running opponent early this morning and urged Americans to all come together. All of the hate and negative rhetoric between the two was only propaganda to get us to vote. Let us remember how their families are good friends in real life. Now that it is time to get a clear vision for America, let us all come together, NOT COME TO GET HER!

    No, #10 is because of all the politicians. Also, the metro is also the WORST transit system in the US. The DoT threatened to shut it down if they didn't fix their system after decades of neglect and we are currently in the midst of mass closings and single tracking while WMATA desperately tries to stay open. Wait, that might be why we drink too.

    #4 @Jim Murray- Things aren't really crazy in DC with the election. That happens everywhere else. From that perspective it's a great time to come. The only downside right now, and for the next year, is that the Metro Rail system (subway) is undergoing repairs with shut downs of different train lines for a week or more at a time. It's tolerable right now because so many people are on vacations or working away from the city.

    Excellent post, @Jim Cody, you covered a lot of fun facts for which even some longtime Washingtonians (like me) were unaware. I really hope you have the chance to visit the nation's capital again sometime soon. If so, Jim, my wife Nicole and I have a nice guest bedroom and bathroom waiting with your name on it. It already passed muster with my Greek mother-in-law and my wife's 92-year old aunt. So you know it's got to be good if it got a thumbs up from them! Meanwhile, I'll let you know for sure if we ever make it down your way in Alabama -- or perhaps we can all meet up at a remote location for a beBee meeting or conference. Lastly, kudos for being featured in the latest Inc.com column by @John White, MBA. John's words speak volumes about your work ethics, dedication, intellect and wonderful demeanor. Talk soon, my friend.

    My thoughts are mirrored in comments here from @Loribeth Pierson (my favorite MLK quote, too), @Franci Eugenia Hoffman, and @Pamela L. Williams. It has to start at the top - but not just as corporate, government, and NGO leaders who must begin to manage their managers and stop tolerating bullying and discrimination. It must start at the top - parents must teach their children love, consideration, and compassion, and they must be modeling that behavior.

    @David B. Grinberg on the surface it is easy to celebrate and commemorate Independence Day as a time of liberation and freedom for all. There is a cost to freedom, equality, equal opportunity and living a fair existence anywhere. There is a saying I have heard growing up, "nothing is for free; you get what you pay for; and you pay for what you get." Are we truly free and we live in a society which endorses inequality? Inequality is endorsed when people are marginalized because of status, gender, race, religion, etc. The very fact that people are still to this very moment fighting for fair and equal pay and treatment is an indicator that the cost of freedom and liberation for many is to accept what is given to them. To receive more, someone will fight, and someone will win eventually.... Thus we are free and still not liberated... A treaty of correction will come one day ... Just some thoughts
    You have once again shared a well researched and thought provoking piece! Thanks for sharing.

    David, idealistically your post points out what America should be but is far from being. As @Franci Eugenia Hoffman states, to achieve our ideal we must begin at the top but unfortunately I see regression more than progression. As someone who was once threatened into dropping a harassment suit by an EEOC representative I can only say that American citizens need to get their heads out of their arses and realize most of the 'protections' have extreme limitations. As Javier stated; " My freedom ends where someone else's begins " and quite frankly I learned the hard way that my freedoms and protections end sooner depending on the financial value of the 'someone else'. That is the true tragedy in the world today, that our very existence has a dollar value attached to it.

    Happy Independence day to all my Americano friends. In case you are unaware, this holiday actually celebrates your independence in 1776 from Canada. Up to that point, we owned your ass. (LOL) And if you elect that bigoted moron Trump president, we will be sending our uber handsome Prime Minister down to Washington to open up a can of whupass on him and take the country back. On the upside, being Canada's eleventh province will most assuredly make America great again. Jim Murray

    This has been one of the worst weeks in America in a while. My hope is that something good comes of all this. But there's part of me that keeps saying it's gonna get worse before it gets better. There are a lot of monkey wrenches in the gears of America these days. It's sad to watch a great country struggling like that. It's sad to feel all the anger bubbling over. It's sad that Americans don't feel they have much in the way of choices when it comes to leadership.

    no, HER data is consistent with my argument - that when you remove the hyperbole of Social Justice and look at specific industries and account with education levels, experience, and time in position - the difference between salaries is most often accounted for my the differentiation of overtime hours vs short shift hours and not a function of gender discrimination. There is no statistically viable wage gap. Data doesn't support it - Market performance doesn't show it. And if you READ my article, and WATCHED the videos - that is the argument I made throughout. Trot out those industries that Goldin is adamant about - and I will let math settle the issue; because that is what math does.

    #9 @Brian McKenzie. Thank you for the data. I agree with your point about pharmacy. In the statement that I quoted, Goldin was indeed praising pharmacy as one of the few industries with a linear relationship between pay and hours worked. This holds for men and women. She was explaining some of the technological advances that have made this possible. Your data are consistent with her arguments about pharmacy. Goldin's data also suggest that many industries do not have this linear relationship between hours worked and pay.
    Brian McKenzie
    14/06/2016 #9 Brian McKenzie
    #8 Women in pharmacy are 53% of the work force market sector according to 2011 census date, in the same sampling period women in the field received a median pay of 111,000 for the profession - 92% of the wage of men in the same sector - In an article from CNN Money - GOLDIN states "Women with children earn less largely because they work fewer hours, source citation: http://cnnmon.ie/237AcBr The article further highlights - "there is a small gap, but it can be almost entirely explained by some men working longer hours - - not discrimination." Economics is not Sociology - Sociology surely is not Economics. They are not interchangeable because of 'feels' - numbers, statistics, reporting quantifiers and market practice don't give credence to the rant.
    Michele Williams
    14/06/2016 #8 Michele Williams
    #5 As we consider women with and without children in the workplace, the question becomes one for sociologists. Why is work organized in a way that provides large differentials for more consecutive hours in the office and does it need to be that way? I met with Claudia Goldin last year, from that conversation and her AEA address, I believe that she discusses how some firms and occupations organize work to create a linear relationship between consecutive hours worked and pay, which benefits people who value flexibility (see the quote from Goldin below). I think it is best to let all bees view her speech, download her papers and decide for themselves. @Brian Mckenzie, we may have to agree to disagree.

    GOLDIN: … My favorite example is pharmacy, in which there’s virtually no part-time penalty, in which there is very little ownership now in terms of independent pharmacies. …So, there have been changes in pharmacy that have led pharmacists to be better substitutes for each other — the use of highly standardized drugs, for example, less compounding, less individual, less need for a particular pharmacist to deal with you. Information technologies have been absolutely essential. When you go to the pharmacist, it could be any of the pharmacists working there who are intelligent and professional and can read the information about you. So some of what has happened that has been good for women comes from changes that I call organic, and they simply happen because of various technological advances that make each pharmacist a perfect puzzle piece for another pharmacist. And also, I mean, go to Silicon Valley and they don’t talk about family time, they talk about play time, and it’s work-life balance rather than just work-family balance.”

    #4 @Michele Williams Goldin agrees with Anne-Marie Slaughter; in that 'If you take women who don’t have care-giving obligations, they’re almost equal with men. It’s somewhere in the 95 percent range. But when women then have children, or again are caring for their own parents or other sick family members who need care, then they need to work differently.' She terms it "Temporal Flexibility". In that if you compare same and similar family status workers; between the genders - there is minimal statistical difference between pay, by her account 5% by BLS numbers 3% : It is when women leave the work force to have children, or reduce their hours to care for aging parents while the man increases his hours and accumulates overtime that the 'gap' appears.
    Damn Math. * source http://bit.ly/1Rs87RZ The answer - is if you want to be wealthy and get ahead in the labor force - don't get married, don't have kids - and trust me; the men of MGTOW are all too aware of that paradigm - it is why we are not getting married, and certainly not breeding mini-mes

    #2 @Brian Mckenzie I understand and share your frustration over the flawed statistical analysis of the gender pay gap that enflames people’s emotions. However, that does not change the fact that rigorous research in economics, research that controls for education, experience, age and industry, for instance, finds a persistent gender pay gap. The gap is smaller than the overall averages reported in the media, but significant and persistent across most industries. I would recommend the highly rigorous and respected work by two award-winning economists, Claudia Goldin, a chaired professor of economics at Harvard University and Francine Blau, a chaired professor of economics at Cornell University. The gender pay gap is not an issue for radical feminists alone; it is an issue for human beings, men and women, who care about a social structure that is unequal and want their daughters to be paid fairly.

    Now, President Obama is weighing whether and how he can leave his own permanent imprint on history by designating about 2 million acres of land, known as the Bears Ears, as a national monument.

    And despite the uniformly acknowledged historical significance of the area, some people regard the conservation efforts by the White House as classic federal overreach. In the current-era conflict between Washington and rural Westerners, the idea of a Bears Ears national monument has produced warnings of a possible armed insurrection.

    Cedar Mesa is one of the best preserved and most archeologically rich sites in the United States. The dry climate and rock overhangs have protected important artifacts for millennia and there are tens of thousands of ancient objects and structures preserved, including ones in which the original wood beams in cliff dwellings remain intact. In a granary where the Pueblo people kept maize, a single dried cob lies on a dusty floor.

    But some lawmakers have suggested that unilateral action by the president, under the 1906 Antiquities Act, could provoke the same sort of resistance that led to the 41-day armed takeover of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon earlier this year.

    In a state where the federal government owns 65 percent of the land, many conservatives already resent existing restrictions because they bar development that could generate additional revenue. Out-of-state militias came to San Juan County two years ago, when Commissioner Phil Lyman helped lead a protest all-terrain vehicle ride through a canyon the Bureau of Land Management had closed to motorized traffic in 2007. Lyman is appealing the 10-day jail sentence he received in connection with the protest, and argues that his case shows how BLM officials place the priorities of environmentalists over those of local residents.

    Brian, a few facts: Why is the unemployment rate showing what it is showing? Let's use North Carolina; I was told they are rejecting just about all unemployment applications to keep their numbers down, forcing people to hire attorneys to fight it. Those that can't afford an attorney are out of luck, thus keeping the applications down. Where do the Feds get their numbers? That would be the STATES
    In States where the state subsidizes ObamaCare the program is thriving, but in again, in North Carolina, the state is taking away tax credits left and right to make sure that ObamaCare doesn't thrive, and even went so far as to allow the Insurance company THEY support a 25% rate increase and forcing out the only other options available to the people. Party has become more important than people.
    Obama did what no one else had the guts to do; stand up to insurance and medical lobbyists that were more interested in increasing their bottom line than the health and lives of the people. People have been dying for decades because of greed and if I had my way ALL hospitals would be non-profit and then maybe I wouldn't have to watch another friend or family member die too soon from chronic illnesses and cancers caused by corporations that have polluted our air, water, and soil to the point that it is causing disease. I wouldn't have to watch friends or family deal with opiate addictions because it's easier to and cheaper to pump people full of drugs than treat them. I have no sympathy for insurance companies and I especially do not appreciate having Obama compared to Lenin or Stalin. George W and Cheney; no doubt because they didn't give two hoots in hell about this country or its people and ran it into the ground, they used it for their own gain. The biggest mistake Obama made was NOT to investigate and bring those two up on charges for the numerous laws they broke.

    @Paul Walters The US U6 number (the real measure of unemployment) has not returned to 2007 levels http://portalseven.com/employment/unemployment_rate_u6.jsp The BLS in April said that In April, the labor force participation rate decreased to 62.8 percent - 92 MILLION Americans are not working - the 5% number doesn't hold water - not even with their own numbers. The US has SoF forces in 150 countries, most notably in Syria driving Toyotas with Black Flags on them, and ObamaCare (Universal Healthcare) is the exact meme shill that Lenin grandstanded with Universal Land Reform for the Peasants in Russia - and has the exact same precedence and trajectory of ushering a full Cult of Personality Authoritarian Socialist Apparatchik. There is more 'Communism' now, in DC than there ever was in Moscow. PS I have a Bachelors in Russian Studies specializing in Soviet Economics - and 15 years analyzing Russia and the Soviet Union, I have a Masters in Health Care Policy built on the 2600 pages of ObamaCare and the 1800 pages of USC code in reference with front line battles in the nearly 7 feet of regulations it has produced - I have 15 years in American Health Care insurance - previously licensed agent, broker, account manager and fraud analyst.

    #2 Brian , everybody is entitled to an opinion as you are. However I am not an American citizen but I do remember vividly the mess Obama inherited from george w. and it was a mess. From the outside it appeared that America as a major power was finished. The dow was at 6500 points, unemployment 13.5% , mired in two dreadful wars that should never have happened . Now, most if not all of your troops are home, unemployment is what? 5.5% and the dow is at an all time high. There is healthcare for those that need it the most so I really don't see the analogy of leninism in this picture. I do believe Americans will be sad to see him go and only in a few years will his legacy become clear. As you all say...God Bless America and if Trump actually does succeed you ( and we 'outsiders ) will need more than blessings to save us from certain catastrophe!!!

They feel ignored by other politicians, but Trump gives them a voice. To them, he is a successful businessman who will make them safe and create more jobs.

    @Paul Walters, Before I comment seriously- I need to stop laughing; your photo choices were spot on, the hair... the hair! Ok, now let me get serious. I didn't know of anyone personally within the US who ever thought he would get close to getting the nomination. Now, it's looking as though he will win the Republican Nomination and that is very scary, indeed. Your statement sort of sums it up for me, "He has openly said that he’s not going to get involved in as many military wars as his predecessors did, but his hostile demeanor suggests otherwise." He may not THINK he will get involved, but a trade war with China and God knows what other crazy idea's this sick man comes up with could cause other countries to be at war with us for the first time in the history of our nation. I hate war, period. I must share my idea's on this- we have a very conservative faction of the Republican Party that has grown by leaps and bounds after President Obama was elected called the Tea Party. I think the Establishment Republican's who DID OPENLY embrace the Tea Party for some time were probably told to be silent along with the media. It's been a while since I've heard anything outrageous coming from the Tea Party but I'm sure they are still growing in numbers. They are war mongers, they are ideologues and xenophobes. White extremists also embrace the Tea Party. So yes America, we should be scared.

    #12 Hi @Paul Walters, coming from someone who lives in the US I have to wonder the same? Money, backroom deals, and more play a big role in a party choosing 'their candidate' in the US. The Democratic Party chose Hillary before the people did. Once a person wins a State in the US, they then win a number of delegates from their party. We also have what are called Super Delegates and their loyalty is to one Candidate or another of a party but many times that can change during the primaries or right before the Convention- they switch sides to give the Candidate that is winning the extra number of delegates they need to become the Primary winner. It's our great electoral system which I find has many flaws. Honestly, even though people state it works, I feel that voting is a bit skewed. I have always seen President Obama as a great leader. The Republican Party (Tea Party and Establishment Republican's) worked hard since Obama took office in 2008 to muddy his name and vote down many great initiatives he tried to get passed through Congress. They also added a lot of negative laws to the Affordable Care Act and many people don't realize that the ACA could have taken off much smoother if some of what the Republican's added weren't part of the ACA. I have voted for Republican's in the past running for President, and I voted for Obama in 08 and 2012, because I feel he's been very good for our country. I can honestly say, I have never seen a President more disrespected than him and his family. The media plays a large role as well. Our media has become more like dirty gossip news shows versus fact based news. I'm glad others see his worth and yes, one day- history will be on Obama's side. I DO NOT want a President Trump either. please America... think. Ah, feels good to say it! Thanks for your comment Paul.

    As someone who lives outside of the USA I can only look upon and wonder as to how it ever came to this. 300 million people and the two candidates who are vying for the right to run this might country everybody seems to hate!! Obama ( from afar) is a leader that seems wonderful and I am sure once his term is over, only then will we realise what he achieved in 8 years! In Indonesia Obama has an almost God like status and in my opinion that is what he should have in America. Oh please, please America do not give us Trump, we couldn't cope !!! There....I said it!!!!

    #10 @NO one, I hope you are right about the American People. I've lost a lot of faith in some but I want to still hold on to the hope that most people are smart enough to see beyond his nonsense. He sure does not represent positivity.

    #9 Don't worry @Lisa Gallagher for a moment I felt very important to be mentions 3 times by you 😁 I think that he won't win, I have faith on americans, I have family living there and tons of friends. They tell me that they don't know anyone who's voting for him and if there is one that believes on what he says there are 3 people for that person thinking sharing the same thoughts that you posted here in this post. I feel positive about americans as you say, we're all the same so we're looking for a positive and best way to live in a country, something that "this guy" doesn't represent.

    @NO one my brain is scattered today. I left out one more comment I wanted to add to my last one. The way he speaks of Mexicans and Muslims is deplorable. I can only speak for myself and the many people I know, but we view everyone equally. We are all humans inhabiting this planet and I do not like to see people become divisive about other races, it's wrong on every level.

    #5 @Álvaro Beltrán, I'm totally bewildered too. I can't understand how he became the Republican Party's Candidate. Thanks for your comment!

    @NO one continued... (I hit enter before I was done). He's an embarrassment​ to the US but I guess not everyone feels that way.

    #3 Hi @NO one, I have never respected Trump. He disgusts me too. He's not a man who should be given free reign at a Podium let alone become our Presidential candidate for the Republican party, but he has because for some reason that I can't comprehend he has a large following.

    To be honest I'm not as well informed as you are but I still don't understand how Mr. Trump can be a serious candidate for the White House.

    Bomb Damage Assessment of the debris fields is consistent with drone, missile attack - NOT a plane, in any instance. Open source photos are out there - Google should return thousands of results in seconds. I spent a career looking at bombing runs and target assessments, Iraq, Bosnia, Yugoslavia - there were not planes. Hell - the animation looks like a 3rd grader did it. You can see the wire frame on it. Frame by frame - it is pure cartoon crap. As for Obama being ashamed of America - Michelle said it on 2,18.08 And Barry has said it repeatedly about Gun Rights / Second Amendment / Gender Identity / Religious Identity / Military Operations and of course the notion of 'American Exceptionalism'

    As a mexican and human that uses common sense, I feel disgusted with Donald Trump. I really can't believe that he stands a chance on winning the elections as you say. Also, I can't conceive how a "human" like this can be accepted as a potential candidate. The USA is full of diversity, how did he get there? Those superficial and racial comments shouldn't nbe heard from any politician at all.

    I think that a president is a person who represents what the citizens of the country he leads stand for. I definately don't think that Trump fits that description and I hope american also think like that when the time to vote comes.

    #1 @Brian McKenzie, "Seek and you'll shall find," is a true statement but it doesn't mean that which we seek is factual. Ive never seen or read of actual facts to back up the claim that there were no planes. My cousin worked at the Pentagon during 9/11 and i heard factual stories of that tragic day. I have never heard Obama say hes ashamed of America. Id be happy to see quoted text showing he has made that statement. Thanks for reading and contributing

    Obama has famously and repeatedly said that he was ashamed of America, from the very foundations of the nation. Seek and you shall find. P.S. There were no planes on 9/11, thus no Muslim terrorists. It was a grand charade, and it is starting to come apart at the seams. The debris fields and animation (yes, animation) does not lend credence to the airplane scenario.
