    Romney was right there is 47% who are dependent on the government; which is just the rest of us who work. Government has no money and produces nothing, it takes from productive citizens and buys the votes of the leeches with that money. At least 47% just voting to extend their government benefits. If Obama has it his way he will increase that to over 50% so that Democrats will always have the power; this is what Obamacare is all about; making everyone dependent on the government.

    Are you sure he wasn't counting how many "corporations are people too" that are dependent on gov't via tax breaks and lobbyists bending laws in their favor?

    Seems to me that the more people we have sucking on the gov't teet the more corporate tax cuts and loopholes they have to do away with...fuck those corporations and the executives making way more than any 20 blue collar employees combined. Are those executives working 24/7, have no soul and only exist for the company? Likely, and they probably neglect their families and think money will win their love, while the blue collar workers work 9-5, plus any overtime and then go home to mow their yards and fix their run down house, then play with the kids before bedtime.

    Not saying all of either side is that way, but my point is our country would be far better off with a wage equalization act. If the NFL and NBA can have Salary Caps and Floors why can't our nation as a whole? We the People need to demand a Collective Bargaining Strategy with the corporations.

    and drag down the features of age,
    no folds or creases from unkempt wear
    eyes of tranquilty, crystalline-beads
    no sign of despair in their hair, nor their hearts
    but oh they have yet to be experienced and that makes aging so very worth it...ML circa2012

    You have you head up your ass dude. It's none of your business how much some exec makes, it's between him and the Board of Directors. Screw you and every other asshole who wants to decide what someone else should make. Get your ass in gear and get a job you lazy jackass!

    Could the CEOs do my job? How about the job of the 200 people that their pay is a multiple of? At the same time to be worth that multiple of average worker pay?

    Known several, talked to way too many even gave them advice on products that I foresaw as being big in the future(which I'm sure all of them are kicking themselves for in a dwindling market) but they only saw dollars signs and not the whole picture, beyond business management most of them barely know their industry or products or where its headed, too focused on the bottom line and not on the road ahead.

    don't you think wages should be negotiated between the employer and the employee?
    it's none of the govts business what pay scale an employer and employee decided on. it's a contract between the two parties involved. having govt step in and distort the economy even more does nothing good for the overall economic fascist system we already have in place.

    Your choice of ' Donkey' in you name is a source of amusement, understanding just how 'stubborn & stupid' you are is expressed in your 'Che' avi, a pure commie if there ever was one.

    Maybe change you name & avi to DUMB BELL.... suites you very well !

    Hmmmm,


    • A donkey is stronger than a horse of the same size.
    • Donkeys have an incredible memory - they can recognise areas and other donkeys they were with up to 25 years ago.
    • Donkeys are not easily startled (unlike horses) and have a keen sense of curiosity.
    • Donkeys have a reputation for stubbornness but this is due to their highly developed sense of self preservation. It is difficult to force or frighten a donkey into doing something it sees as contrary to its own best interest or safety.
    • Donkeys are more independent in their thinking than horses and will reason, then make decisions based on their safety.
    • Training a donkey relies upon showing him or her, by words and action, that they can trust you to protect them from harm. They learn what it is we want them to do if we take time to show them.


    Apparently donkeys are being maligned unfairly. They apparently are neither stubborn nor stupid.

    It's ironic that he uses donkey in his name while at the same time a donkey is the symbol of the democratic party. Perhaps that is lost on you.

    LOL!!! Yes, Americans do need more jobs, rather than more food stamps and a higher minimum wage for the growing number of unemployed and underemployed. Obama is so lucky to have useful idiots like you, just as Putin is lucky to have a counterpart like Obama in the Whitehouse.

    Sometimes a revisionists look at history can be fun, but not when it's used this way.

    I'd still vote the same way and I didn't vote for either one. Both are bad for the country. I'm not willing to sacrifice my principles simply to vote for a political party name. It would be stupid to do that since both parties really are the same, and neither one has the interests of you or this country in mind.

    You are welcomed to cast aspersions at me but I agree with SD about Romney. Romney is right on both counts. The two heads are not contradictory. Both statements are true.

They just put a black man in there cause the last dope screwed up something fierce, they had to keep the populace satisfied, so they made you think there was gonna be change.

    This is a typical strawman argument. Poor democrats have been voting Democrat forever and they are still poor Democrats so they use the old standby of "let's engage in class warfare and blame those rich republicans". Not the ultra rich democrats mind you, only those fat cat republicans. Read a bit about it and you'll see why there are people on both sides of the fence who are opposed to the raise.

    And before you call me a tea bagger or some other inane colloquialism I'm neither republican or democrat. They are both crooks that wipe themselves with the documents they purport to defend.

    Roughly 2.3 percent (one reference showed it as high as 4.7%) of hourly workers make the "minimum wage". That means for that 2.3 percent (to 4.7%), assuming they are working a 40 hour work week, are making roughly $15,100 a year. That is a big assumption because obamacare has made many employers cut their employees hours under 30 so they don't have to pay the obama tax.

    Now if we raise the minimum wage to the proposed $9.00 an hour the earner now makes roughly $18,700 a year, again assuming that they aren't limited to under 30 hours a week due to obamacare fees.

    Is that going to solve the problem? No way. As a matter of fact as businesses normally do they will raise the prices of things like happy meals and groceries to make up for the extra money they have to spend. This will raise the prices for the people who just got a bump in pay. They will also cut their work force to make up for the extra cash outlay.

    So let's just bump everyone to $15.00 an hour, right? Makes sense. Then the earners in an entry level job will be making double what they are now. And the businesses will just take it in stride and not raise the prices of products right?

    Wrong. Two things will happen. Employers will lay off employees and prices will go up in every industry affected.

    Here's another point of view by Don Boudraeux;
    "If government enacts legislation setting the minimum price that people can pay for a new car at $50,000, do you believe that this legislation will result in people paying $50,000 for the likes of Toyota Corollas and Ford Fiestas? Or do you realize that if government obliges car buyers to pay at least $50,000 for a new vehicle, these buyers will choose to buy no low-end cars and opt (if they buy a new car at all) instead to purchase a new BMW, Lexus, or other luxury model?"

    If a company has to pay 15 an hour for a worker do you think he's going to hire the people that they currently have working for them or more qualified people? Who would you hire? I'm hiring the guy who graduated from college with a human studies degree who has no hope of using it to become gainfully employed over someone without a HS degree. I guess I'm just a dick that way.

That is a big assumption because obamacare has made many employers cut their employees hours under 30 so they don't have to pay the obama tax.

    Now if we raise the minimum wage to the proposed $9.00 an hour the earner now makes roughly $18,700 a year, again assuming that they aren't limited to under 30 hours a week due to obamacare fees.

    Is that going to solve the problem? No way. As a matter of fact as businesses normally do they will raise the prices of things like happy meals and groceries to make up for the extra money they have to spend. This will raise the prices for the people who just got a bump in pay. They will also cut their work force to make up for the extra cash outlay.

    So let's just bump everyone to $15.00 an hour, right? Makes sense. Then the earners in an entry level job will be making double what they are now. And the businesses will just take it in stride and not raise the prices of products right?

    Wrong. Two things will happen. Employers will lay off employees and prices will go up in every industry affected.

    Here's another point of view by Don Boudraeux;
    "If government enacts legislation setting the minimum price that people can pay for a new car at $50,000, do you believe that this legislation will result in people paying $50,000 for the likes of Toyota Corollas and Ford Fiestas? Or do you realize that if government obliges car buyers to pay at least $50,000 for a new vehicle, these buyers will choose to buy no low-end cars and opt (if they buy a new car at all) instead to purchase a new BMW, Lexus, or other luxury model?"

    If a company has to pay 15 an hour for a worker do you think he's going to hire the people that they currently have working for them or more qualified people? Who would you hire? I'm hiring the guy who graduated from college with a human studies degree who has no hope of using it to become gainfully employed over someone without a HS degree. I guess I'm just a dick that way.
    You can't be against having people on welfare while at the same time be against those same people making enough money to live on. That's like wanting to fuck a disease ridden hooker without a rubber and expecting to not get an STD from it.
    If gunners were as violent as anti-gunners believe, logically there wouldn't be any anti-gunners left.

    Well how can you argue with a well thought out articulate analogy like that?

    Where did you get the idea that he or I were talking about welfare? I was responding to the minimum wage question. What you just did was pull out a strawman argument. If you think that the majority or even the minority of hourly workers are making $7.25 you are sorely mistaken. I pretty much spelled that out.


    I believe there are a lot of people that need welfare to survive. My aunt was one of them and I'm thankful she had it. She was on it long enough to find a job then got off of it. But I've seen with my own eyes that there is a lot of corruption in the welfare system. I have worked with people that refuse to get married so the "wife" gets to stay home and collect welfare while the "husband" goes to work and makes 50-60K. I used to work at a grocery store where a several couples would drive in a a nice SUV, dressed to the nines and sit there while the wife pays for all the food the WIC plan and food stamps could buy then have the husband come in behind her paying for the beer,cigarettes, steak etc with his debit card.


    We have all seen that there are more Americans accepting handouts from the government plantation than are not. Whose paying for all that? The ones of us not on the plantation.


    Now the minimum wage. What should it be? What's the liveable wage? $15 an hour? $19 an hour? How much more of your paycheck do you want to give up to pay for it? How much should we pay an entry level burger flipper at a fast food place? Those are entry level jobs and not skilled labor. The market wont bear it and it will result in more unemployment.


    Instead of hookers with STD analogies come up with an argument on how this should work.

    Not a strawman argument at all. Unless declaring everything you can't defend against a strawman is your only argument, which seems to be the case. Welfare is very much a part of this as people making minimum wage who are not kids living at home have a good chance of being on welfare because that minimum wage isn't enough to live on.
