    LOL, evidence tendered number fucking 2. So we have a woman PM and the richest person in the country is female. That glass ceiling is coming across very much like the Emperor's new clothes.

    Well, Mr Forrest only paid himself US$426,542 in reportable remuneration for the 2011 year. Although this doesn't take into account the just under $30m in dividends he received for his 31% shareholding in Fortescue Metals Group.

    Unfortunately Ms Rinehart operates via a private company so her remuneration details aren't legislatively required to be published. However, the most recent figures (2008-9) filed with ASIC show her company (of which she is the sole shareholder) made a $225m profit.

    *Edit: as a reasonable comparator, Mr Forrest's share of the 2009 income equates to about US$157.5m. So assuming rough parity and all else being equal, pay disparity would be about 30%.

    So HedgeHogey is a no show? Doesn't matter anyway, when all you do is provide links without objective analysis, you show yourself to be an idiot. If he had provided those links and then went on to break down its content, I'd be impressed, probably not convinced, but impressed (no matter how you skin a cat, it's still a skinned cat). Instead, he throws the link down like he has the winning hand in a game of poker, only his reveal is just a pair of twos and everyone knows there is a royal flush at the other end of the table.

    Well, outside Australia there are species of animals that won't instantly kill you if you touch them. Whereas all women CAN and WILL. I figured it was so obvious it didn't need pointing out.

    In my haste to genuflect to the Queen Mum (I don't lose my American citizenship for that, right?) and inform people about the dangerous wildlife in Australia (everything except the sheep and rabbits, which were imported from other parts of the world) I missed this little gem.

    We allow politicians who have never been within 100 miles of an conflict to make the rules and regulations of the U.S. armed forces. Likewise, those who have never walked a beat, served time in prison, or passed an accounting class get to pass laws about governing those subjects. Your logic...isn't.

    It's called training. I had judo, immediately followed by having to teach a class at my bjj club.

    You reject three different sets of statistics because two of them are from a think tank dedicated to rooting out inequality, which is like going right into a quarantine zone because **** those assholes at the CDC. Also because Aussies are so super duper special that it'd be impossible for them to follow the documented pattern of the rest of the world. Because they have a female prime minister and a rich woman hanging around. It's kindof like the way that racism completely disappeared here in the USA when Obama became president. Because both your PM and our President are magic.

    You've pretty much put yourself beyond the realm of falsifiability here.

    HH: I like you, I think you're an awesome poster, etc.

    But for the life of me, I don't really know which part you're disputing. I tried to highlight an area that I thought raised an interesting point, but I get the feeling you disagree with me, but aren't telling me why you disagree with me.

    /hugs
