    Re: Two women accused Herman Cain of inappropriate behavior

    Newsflash: Men are pigs. Is that really news to everyone?


    Did he do it? Hell yes he did. Just as Clinton toyed with Monica am certain Herman has tried using his power to troll a few underlinkings.

    Just as much men are sexual pigs we are butt dumb in dealing with the subject when caught.

    Cain has already begun that little dance jig and soon his feet will be tripping over themselves. Does anyone remember Clinton's "depending on what your meaning of is is."
    It seems that the little head that was doing their thinking during that moment of weakness is the same little head that tries to worm its way out of accusations.

    Republicans just don't elect blacks to federal office. At least not so much since the Reconstruction era.
    It was the Democrats that created the Section 5 districts.

    You're dreaming if you think a black Republican can get enough states to vote for them to be elected president.
    I don't have the words to describe the ignorance of this comment.

    Yep. We Democrats often sing this song just before a Republican debate: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BnwJ5KIcKX4

That is one way that you can avoid getting hit with sexual harassment claims.

    I certainly never refer to any woman I work with as hon, or honey, or anything like that. That is another way that you can avoid getting hit with a sexual harassment claim.

    Most importantly, I do not make unwanted sexual advances towards my female co-workers. I don't do that, and they should not have to put up with any guy they work with doing that. I met my wife where we both worked at the time, but I did not make unwanted advances at work. Meeting future wives or girlfriends is quite common in the workplace. There is a difference between that and making unwanted sexual advances towards your coworkers. The fact is, to be accused of sexual harassment, and for that accusation to be credible enough for you to have to pay them, then its not just some slip of the tongue, its an unwanted sexual advance, or being extremely inappropriate with a female coworker.
    I was listening to commentary about it today and came away with a few things. The NRA(National Restaurant Association) from my understanding made the payout because Mr. Cain was the leader at the time, Cain himself didn't have anything to do with the payout and seemed surprised which leads me to believe the court costs outweighed the win or in other words it would have cost more to win the case than it was worth to settle. As well I keep in mind that this was the '90s, businesses and organizations were just starting to host mandatory SA seminars so it may not have been something that was necessarily an intended advance but just old school behaviors that may or may not have meant anything. And finally the side bringing all this to light is pretty vague on details, this is mainly because of a gag built into the settlement contracts but that can be waived under certain circumstances. In my opinion the women could have just wanted a payout or Mr. Cain could have made a mistake but either is possible and I give benefit of the doubt because of how open the story is.

    As far as the behaviors in the workplace, you play it by the book as far as I can tell and that definitely takes discipline, most of which comes from the prior mentioned seminars. As well we are both younger than Herman Cain and have had the benefit of learning these lines so I guess if there were the indirect things I have mentioned with no intent to cause harm I give him a pass, I'd have to take a second to process where I fall if the behaviors are more obvious though.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    I'm probably premature in making this prediction ... but here goes anyway ...

    ... this will be Cain's "Dukakis moment."

    Say what?? Democrats created the only 5 districts to elect a black Republican in the last 100 years? Don't you even realize you're saying without Democrats' assistance, there would have been no black Republicans elected to the House in the last 100 years?

    You don't even know what a Section 5 district is, do you?

    I thought that was the most racist thing that La. had to do when census forced a restructure. I was pissed when the argument was that one area had to axe a congressman with more population than a minority specific district that had to be created for our state's redisctricting to be approved. And the federal really needs to stop that approval thing since La. is the only state I think required to submit approval for federal review.

    The term comes from section 5 of the 1965 Voting Rights act.

    According to you, without Democrats' assistance, there would have been no blacks elected to the House.

    That's not gonna convert the right, which has elected only 6 blacks to Congress over the last 100 years, to suddenly elect a black man to the highest office in tthe land.
