minimum wage in 1967 was $1.40. The true Consumer price Index based on that year as compared to the often changed CPI in current use, would show that the cost of good has increased over 700%. Even in 1967 that base wage was cheap. So taking $1.40 x 7= $9.80 it is a known fact that over 50% of the fast food workers and retail associates are on food stamps and other federal assistance. So in effect the American consumer is helping to subsidize McD's and others to maintain their high profits. I suggest you go back to your bible studies and 6 day creation theories surfer joe
perhaps Jose has made so much money on his fabulous stock picks, that he is now successfully retired? OR was he deported?
if the Chokeyes did get into the BCS championship, the big question is: would they score more then 3 points?
perhaps your thinking is off. There is no way we could fund the interest on the federal or state debts if interest from the fed were much higher. The cost of Uncle to fund his debt would then be impossible. How could the US pay off 6% debt bonds?

I guess I got an attitude because a major medical hospital used my cancer as a research test and now I can not talk. Also the poster talking about his child being cured, did not specify how. he did in a latter post.

doctors are unionized. they just call themselves an association. And their fees are set. They have a starting scale they must charge or they will be brought up before the Medical Board. Doctors sit on the regional boards of insurance negotiating committes to set fair and reasonable fees. This is true of Blue Cross/Shield slim, you need to look up what the fidcuary duties of a union is. Have you ever met a doctor who is not a certified American medical ASSOCIATION member? There are numerous reason why you haven't. They cannot legally practice without membership. This same formula applies in many professions
I started in 1967 as a machinist, and later became a tool and die maker

I started in a UAW shop in the mid-late 60's and made $1.75 and paid 2 hours of union dues. When I just retired from a different UAW shop as a skilled tradesman I was making over $34. So I worked the trade 40years. 2 hours of dues is a bargain and even 4 hours would be fair. I receive a pension and some medical.
