Actually, Politifact (Jan. 28, 2014) agrees with DeLauro's claim of women making 77 cents for every Read Moredollar made by a man, quibbling only with the "for equal work" part. And that's not necessarily wrong either - it boils down to a number of ways the wages can be calculated. The point here is that Politifact determined the claim "Mostly True". The even bigger point is that women STILL make 77 cents on the dollar men make and that may seem fair to Chris and his candidate, Brown, but not to any voting woman I know. I find it pretty off-putting when I hear the GOP use sleight of hand semantics when playing fast and loose with actual stats regarding the very real problem of women making almost a quarter less than men. How many women -especially single working mothers - out here think Chris is helping his cause by calling Rosa a liar for pointing this discrepancy out?

Excellent advice! Cats and dogs should be indoors unless on harness and leash anyway. Large dogsRead Moresho uld be okay in a fenced-in yard. Coyotes are just one example of the many dangers faced by unattended cats and small dogs. Keep your pets from falling victim to predators, traffic, poisons, etc. Keep them indoors. Always.
