Katherine Clark is a Massachusetts congresswoman from Melrose, who we never of before this week. Basically she wanted to make a name for herself by refusing to take part in the moment of silence for the victims of the Orlando nightclub shooting:

Then she organized the “sit in” at the House of Representatives because they didn’t get to vote on a bill that would ban people on the no fly list from purchasing guns.

There is no God.

Obviously such a law would accomplish nothing, as there hasn’t been a single terrorist who has ever bought a gun legally who was on the no fly list. Plus, the majority of the 1.5 million people who have ended up on these lists are people with Arab-sounding names, so all she and her friends would be doing is profiling Muslim-Americans and denying them of their rights. Ya know, things like racial profiling that progressives are supposedly against.

Anyway, she wanted America’s attention and now she’s got it. She shares some pretty ridiculous crap on her Twitter, and this one caught our attention today:

See that? Classic misinformation. Here’s a link to the article. Only a moron would believe that this even resembles a good idea. Let’s take a look:

See that? This is everything that is wrong with our never ending obsession with “equality.” See the thing is, equality is a word that sounds great on paper. In theory it would be nice if we were all equal. But here in grown up world we are not all equal. Ya see, over 3 billion people watched the men’s World Cup in 2014, generating tens of billions of dollars in revenue. While roughly 750 million watched the women’s World Cup in 2015, which of course meant less revenue. Those things are not equal.

And since you can only pay your employees money that you have, obviously men are going to be paid more than women. What’s next? Is the Senate gonna demand that FIFA require equal viewership? Are they gonna force people in Spain and Italy to watch America and Japan go head to head in women’s soccer?

So yea, the next time you hear a politician try to pander to women by talking about “equal pay” you should probably just point and life at them. Because even a child can’t grasp the basic idea that salaries in the private sector are determined by the free market. These are our leaders.

    The following from the Boston Globe, April 1st, 2016:

    “The disparities, according to documents given to the commission, are found throughout their compensation, from base pay to bonus to per-diem travel. Female players on the national team earn $72,000 for playing 20 regular season games, plus bonuses for winning. Men, however, make a minimum of $100,000 for playing 20 games, get a victory bonus — and a smaller supplement for losing. If both teams won all their games, women would earn $99,000, while men could take home $263,320.

    The pay chasm widens when players participate in the World Cup. Female players who try out and make the team earn a total of $30,000 each. Men, however, get $68,750 each. With each advancing round, players get paid more, but the structure favors the men. In 2014, the men’s team earned a total of $9 million for losing in the Round of 16, while the women’s team last year got only $2 million for winning their entire tournament.

    The numbers are infuriating given that the US Soccer Federation projects that in the upcoming year the women’s team will generate $17.6 million in revenue in the United States, while the men will bring in $9 million. ”

    So I say they more than deserve the pay raise. And start docking the men until they stop being satisfied with simply making it past the group round!

    I can’t help but hear the cantina bar music from the first Star Wars my head each time I see photos of the sit-in.

    Hopefully Goofy Liz sat Indian Style.

    Warren and the other liberal elites are terrified that Brexit foretell a Trump landslide

    Liberal women are some of the ugliest creatures on the planet. Maybe it’s just liberals…

    Ugly as fuck.

    Just looking at this picture we all know they are thinking ‘when will this be over so we can go to the taxpayer funded suite at a very expensive hotel and eat each other out on a giant bed and order room service.

    For those of you not in the loop. Wearing a green jacket and getting a haircut that looks like a spread vagina on your head somehow stimulates votes.

    Comparing a liberal Congresswoman from Massachusetts to a moron is an insult to the moron.

    Just looking at the picture of these angry bitches makes me want to puke. America is still the greatest country on the planet but looking at these two hags you wouldn’t think it. If I was making 6 figures for a no show job the last thing I would look like is an angry witch trying to squeeze out a load.

    Con Being the opposite of Pro naturally Congress is the opposite of Progress. My beef is how do we continue to let these people create useless laws for our country? They won’t agree on any legislation that actually helps the common people but if it’s a vote to give themselves raises and more vacation time it’s ‘yays’ across the board?

    The ‘sit down’ was sickening. They lasted a total of 25 hours. I’ve never been to a protest but hey, if It involves receiving a big fat paycheck and top notch benefits for life then sign me up! I can sit on a comfortable chair and throw back free Dunkin Donuts too. Now they are all on vacation again. I only wish I had lucrative job where I would get paid for accomplishing absolutely nothing.

    Those “liberal” communists are much more dangerous than any terrorist group. Look at them occupy the people’s house,this is America not Israel.

    Do you make your editing mistakes on purpose for extra wit? Or is it truly this bad?

    You never of this woman before? Point and life? I kinda like “point and life.” Might start using that one

    Good to know there are no real issues in Massachusetts and the US to deal with right now and she can spend time on this.

    Women should get the same pay as men. As long as she cooks my dinner, washes, irons, cleans the house, scrapes out the cat box and keeps me happy she gets nothing. Now if she had a mid six figure salary I’d be happy to do the same for her for nothing.

    I don’t see the problem here.

    Where’s my Manhattan, bitch? And remember: three dashes of Spanish bitters!

      Oh come on TB Nation! I write the most misogynist troll message I can think of and I only get six down votes? You can do better than that! Or did you see it for what it was?
