What you fail to take into consideration gov't mandated wages and benefits over ride the points you raise. You are discussing the free mkt,. When the gov't mandates wages what you discuss is not relevant. Keep the gov't out of the free mkt..
Wages and benefits must be between labor and mgt-not gov't. Gov't just screws thing up. Think. The idiots we elect not a one that votes to raise MW has any idea what any employer can pay.
If the employer can and want to pay 100/hr. fantastic. But not mandated by gov't. MO
All of us slower poster know that when you increase the cost of labor, you increase the cost of all goods and services. Why you fast thinkers do not understand this is beyond me. I think all of you should retake ECON 101.
Since you fast thinkers need basic examples to show increases in the cost of goods and services thinki: farm workers-raise labor farm produce goes up; restaurants-labor goes up cost of dinner goes up; house cleaning-cost goes up;. etc, etc and etc. Fast thinkers are not very smart since they can not understand
Those simple minds that believe labor costs will remain the same really are simple minds. MO.
What a sin. Thousands of American babies need to be adopted but people are 'screw balls', they go to the other side of the world to adopt. What about all of the 100,000 illegal kids crossing the southern border that need to be adopted if the idiot gov't reps wont send them back home. ????? Jmo
At this time we do not know if Iran has a nuke or not. If they happen to have one and Israel were to know about it Israel would be justified to drop one of theirs on Tehran first. Assuming Israel has one. We just think they have. MO Remember, Iran has said over and over their goal is to destroy Israel. TV news.
phinky: You finally said something smart, "rise up citizens'. The gov't has nibbled away much of our civil rights. Some idiots do not understand that every rule, regulation and law nibbles away. I do agree that some nibbling must take place. But look at some of the things: can't buy and drink a large soda; they tell me how much salt to sprinkle; how much sugar to use; tell me I can't smoke; I can't . . . . . Shame, shame and shame.
The biggest shocker to me was when I was 17 they taught me how to kill people but I was too young to drink a beer or go into a casino. I had to wait until I was 21. Some of my less than 21 year old friends died for the country but couldn't drink a beer. When you think about it we are almost slaves to this gov't. MHO..
Again fox, you announce how dense you are. Now you lie to your kid. You better go back and re read what Scalia said.
My how you twist the facts. Obama is the one that is having trouble convincing world leaders that ISIS is coming after them. And why? BO says ISIS is not a religion and a group that is at war with us but we are not at war with them. Who or why would anyone want to join BO.????? JMO
sportsie, remember it is people like you that have elected these gov't liberals that want to GIVE people more in Dole benefits than they can make working. People live below the poverty line because a liberal gov't defines the line. Today you are on poverty and you have a car, cell phone, free housing, utilities-gas, electricity, water, sewer; ,food, medical, optical, dental, clothing, transportation, college, counseling, PLUS a cash grant for spending money. Your food stamps and cash grant can be spent for pot, alcohol, drugs and the casino. And they don't have to work and you call this poverty?????
What dense thinking..
Its people like you that make hate filled statements to try to support their illogical points in which they have made none my insinuating they are Christians...
zero keep in mind employees make monthly premium payments for medicair. What would be fair if you don't want medicair have gov't cancel it and refund the mandatory payments back to the employees. It's wrong to stop benefits that you have paid for. MO
If my memory is correct, Papa Son withdrew from the talks because he was not making any progress with the Feds. It did and does not mean he no longer has an interest in TMUS. He will be back assuming no one else has taken over in the mean time. I still see the pps about $50. I am holding.
This character is a rabel rouser, the kind of citizen this country does not need. He is a disgrace to my democrat party. Shame, shame and shame. .
mendal, you exhibit all of the great qualities of being a closet racist and bigot. You may have some other problems also.
WOW! things look good for SS recipients. SS and Obama say that the annual SS raise on 1-1-15 will be a little over 1.8% to help recipients meet the increase in the cost of living., Great.
WHAT? Obama says that people working for minimum wage must have a 40% increase in minimum wage to adjust for the cost of living . MW being raised from $7.25 to $10.10. 2% of Americans work for MW while about 15% of Americans are on SS. About 2 out of 5 recipients the only income they have is SS. The average SS benefit/month is about $1,100. Starvation income, but Obama says that is OK.
SS recipients would be better off to cancel their citizen ship and become illegal aliens. Per illegal there benefits are greater than citizens benefits. Go to the computer and check this out.
And you think this administration is great? Shame, shame and shame .. TIJMHO.
Idiots do not realize driving down the road at 60 mph they travel 88 ft per second. This means when they look down to text they can travel from the right lane across the left lane and across the median into the far left lane. AGAIN ONLY IDIOTS TRY TO DRIVE AND TEXT.
To kill or be killed it only takes one seconds. So don't do it.
From what I have read gay airline stewards flying out of Africa in the early '80's are guilty of spreading HIV around the world. At the time no one knew what or anything about the HID virus. MO
It is time to the U. S. gov't to change its foreign policy. When we intercede in a foreign war with American blood and money and we win the war, we win the country. Basically the same philosophy as Russia. I am against winning a war but when we do not get a prize.
Think past history: Cuba, Philapines ; Korea; etc, etc and etc. we have given them back and it seems like they come back to bite us. JMO
What worries me is that this 'global warming' is going to let a 'polar vortex drop down out of the north pole bringing freezing temperatures lasting for a week or two all the way down to the Gulf of Mexico. This will only allow the starvation around the world of about 2.5 billion people. Weather cycles. Yes it is coming, just don't know which year.
Again weather cycles. In these cycles this would be called a very unusual event. It is coming. It has happened before and it will happen again.
