Gender Pay Gap
Posted: April 3, 2015 by Name Withheld
Program: Colorado Inside Out
Both the federal government and the state of Colorado have laws that guarantee pay equality for equal work regardless of race, gender or age. But, there is a gender pay gap in Colorado according to studies by the AAUW. Why don't you do a study of the gender pay gap in Colorado to check on the facts? If you also find that a gap exists, find out why the state can't or won't uphold the law. Also, examine Colorado companies that are responsible for the pay gap so the public can exercise their right to do do business (or not) with those companies. Elizabeth Cady Stanton championed the cause of gender equality years ago -- why shouldn't you, in the public interest, continue the crusade and get out the facts to the public. Certainly many of your audience would be interested. It bothers me to think that my grand-daughters, on graduating from college, may not earn a salary equal to a man graduating from the same school at the same time offered the same job. Please respond to the request as to your decision. Thank you -- a daily observer of your shows. Dr. Bill Fiero

I don't know where you found her, but I don't think her presence adds anything positive to the discussions. She seem like an unreconstructed Hippie for the 60's. Some of her comments are almost incoherent. Please get someone brighter.
Harsh legal System Protestors VS Authority Defenders
Posted: March 5, 2015 by Susan Hall
Program: Colorado Inside Out
I Watched the Colorado Inside Out and saw each person on the panel discuss the event about protestors against police brutality and discrimination and perhaps should also have included biased and unjust sentencing in the US as well, since there is a much higher rate of African Americans, Native American or minorities than Europeans in Jails and prisons, on death row, released from death row and prisons after the introduction of DNA; as well as often for smaller offenses which are about fines instead of jail. The discussion on this program had David kopel dividing the people who used WASHABLE paint on a memorial at the police department from the other protestors. He had stated that a person of the utmost importance and victim who was shot to death within minutes of a confrontation with the police, had her mother say she disapproved of those who defaced the memorial. This may separate the Hernandez family, but it does not separate the other protesters. I am not saying they were in agreement to the Washable Red Paint, but I have not seen any good media that has truly investigated that perspective. Therefore for David Kopel and Dmminic Dezzutti to call the people using the paint scum bags seems unprofessional as a person getting the advantages of the media, which is extremely expensive and partially why most all of the legislators are such wealthy people from one of the more media supported 2 parties, even though there are many people who are registered as independents or with a different party other than the Democrats and Republicans, like the Green Party. I felt like the protestors around the country along with the Democracy Now with Michelle Alexander, author of the New Jim Crow brought out some enlightening and important statistics that had to do with the issues the protestors were wanting to present to the public. Davod Kopel says he does not believe protestors should even ever be allowed to block traffic, but I am not sure the media and therefore the public would notice the issues brought out without something out of the perfectly comfortable normal routine of US residents. It took a great deal of streets blocked to allow African Americans an equal right to voting and public facilities as well as stopping the Viet Nam war, which was never an option for votes. Certainly the media and the US has not made enough difference to cover the warehouse in Chicago were the police have been torturing mostly minority citizens and one of their officers was promoted to being used in Guantánamo; nor has the US's Concentration Camp where 100 men have been held with a target of certain people of religious afiliation had much coverage and perhaps it is due to protestors not doing something out of the normal comfortable entertainment envirnment. We have seen the media reveal from time to time those officers who save people, but we don't hear the names of those officers who are abusive and charged kike they are equal citizens in the site of the law. We don't hear the names of those soldiers who poked the eye out of the British Muslim, Mozzem Beggs or the soldiers who beat the Australian David Higgs till he told him he would confess to anything iin hopes he would not be beat to death. Nor do we know the names of the CIA agents in the cells with the 3 men who were found suffigated with rags down their throats. We hear little about the horible abuses in the US prisons as well as the holdings of hostages who are cleared US prisons outside of the US but still held for 13 years after being tortured. I guess I would add that there has been A nice protest on 52nd and Wadsworth for 13 years against the wars, and this month a letters a quiet stand against the TPP and therere is little coverage about it. Perhaps it would be better to have a program where the Coloradoans get to hear what new bills are coming out and have different political and interested groups research and then say where they stand on the bills, rather than to have a pundants make assessments without researching the issues.
