It's not OK to continue the practice of wage disparity when it comes to females in your employ!

According to an article recently in TV Guide, Lauer was reportedly making somewhere between $20-25 million a year, and while Kotb wouldn't say what her previous or new salary might be, Page Six (NY Post) reports that both she and her co-anchor Savannah Guthrie only make $7 million a year.

I know it's impossible to know exactly what someone's salary is, but it's a known fact females are paid much less than there male counter-parts!

Women are not clueless to this fact! In fact, I noticed several references to it during the Golden Globe Awards just the other night! To bad for the most part it was said in a sort of tongue" and cheek" fashion by smiling women! Perhaps this is the next issue we need to seriously on focus on.

When it comes to pay disparage I don't think it's OK to use "tongue and cheek" references and plaster our face with a smile!

I think we need to put on our "serious face", act like we mean business, and demand we get paid what we're worth!

We've been conditioned (some of us older women) not to make waves, act like ladies, (whatever the hell that means) yada yada yada........That all has to change IMHO if we're ever going to receive equal pay!

Insurance companies, it's not OK to dictate to doctors how to do their jobs!

Doctors have gone to medical school and you have NOT!

While your main focus is on saving big bucks and creating hefty dividends to shareholders, their is saving lives and providing the best medical plan of care as possible! Let doctors do their job without interference from YOU!

It's not okay to verbally abuse your case manager because it's their job to help you so they "have to listen to you."

Thumbs down Ted Nuggent....

You sit on the board of directors for NRA and had the audacity to say that the young kids who survived the assault weapon injuries at Parkland are liars.

It's NOT OKAY to call those kids liars!

It's NOT OKAY that your organization profits from tragedies involving guns!

I'll never listen to your music again, ever!!

It's not OK for any of you's to do this! You haven't just lived through the horrible experience these kids have and what's further more as far as I know none of you have ever came up with any solutions to combat the violence gun shootings in schools!

So instead of tearing them down and running off at the mouth perhaps listen and watch and see what these kids can accomplish!

Mr. Lawn Mower,

It is not okay to start, run for a few minutes creating false hope, then quit. You peaked my frustration!

I worked on that lawn mower for well over an hour. I am done wasting time when I have so many other things I would like to scratch off my list today. I am fairly certain I know what the problem is ... will pick up the part when I drive into town.

It is not okay for a child to tell an adult how they should think. Grow up and live life a little then speak to an adult with respect.

It's not OK to wait months and months before announcing you've had a data breach and informing your customers!

In the case of Best Buy their breach occurred between September 27 and October 12 of 2017! They just announced this a few days ago!

It's not OK to give lip service to your customers by simply saying ...

Safeguard our information for godsakes and IF you MUST use a third-party for the technology behind your company or service PLEASE vet them carefully!

It's not OK for people who are called before a senate committee to take the oath to tell the truth and then sit right there and LIE straight through their teeth!

Scott Pruitt, Jeff Sessions, the list goes on and on....and yet nobody faces consequences for bold face lying!

I just don't get it......

I am so sick of fighting with this bureaucracy!

Today I sat down and wrote them a letter that may or may not do any good! It did good for me at least in the fact that I got to voice my displeasure and vent!

It's not okay for racist white women to call the police on black people living their lives. I hope there are going to be consequences for these folks beyond public shaming. They should be charged with wasting police time or something.
