So, Timmy Bishop, When you were in Washington, bending over for the big boys, did anyone discuss Walmart, the (?) largest employer in America – just to name the big kahuna – and their strategy of keeping most employees part time so that can get hugely rich by avoiding paying for the health insurance of their tens of thousands of little drones? Or was it just easier to strong arm us single little drones, woopsie, I mean, citizens, into this mandatory health insurance?
So, here’s this week’s cartoon. Where is Joe Wilson (you lie!) when we need him? The fatuous Tim Bishop could use a Joe Wilson treatment right about now. Anyway, one good thing – maybe the only good thing – is that he has a charming and hilarious Deputy Cheif of Staff named Jon Schneider. I hope HE runs for Congress in November. I certainly won’t be voting for Bishop. But I’d vote for Jon in a heartbeat. He responded to my post about Tim Bishop’s website going positively paleolithic by not having any option for a woman to sign on as Ms, offering her only Mrs & Miss – hello 1962. That post with a screenshot is here:
Dear Ms. Fredericks,
Miss-take fixed. Just wanted to shoot you a line to let you know that we appreciate you flagging the “Miss-take” on our website comment form… and while I don’t know how this “Mrs-tery” occurred it has been fixed and “Ms” is now an available option when one leaves a comment. I appreciate you indulging my need for morning puns and again, apologize for any “Ms-ery” this may have caused. OK, that was the last one.
Just the text from the cartoon: (hello search engines!)
Dear Congressman Bishop,
I’ve come to your website to send you an email. I am asked to fill out a form telling you who I am and giving you my contact information so that you can respond to my concerns. The first form field asks me for a “prefix.” The available choices, seen in the screenshot below, are Mrs, Miss, Dr. Other and Mr. Why is there no “Ms.” available in this prefix drop down box? Is this 1962? Seriously Tim, as a woman, I find this oversight a small but important detail. According to my very own congressman, I am either married, unmarried or “other?” Yet my husband, or anyone else in possession of male genitalia, is simply, Mr? Wow & oink. Please add Ms to my list of choices. My tax dollars are paying for this website too.
