"Act of love" , baloney. If I violate a law, can I be excused from prosecution if I scream "It's OK, I want an Act of Love". Baloney, baloney, baloney. Laws are supposed to be enforced equally... Act of Love is pure "Baloney". Jeb you just blew it. MO......
Since the Maryland legislators are mandating the 'we need' wage to $10.10/hr are they going to 'mandate' that all seniors on fixed incomes have their pensions raised? or are they just going to allow those seniors to die off faster? Seniors are treated very unfairly. It is time for seniors to wake up. MO....
The people voted for 'change'. BO promised change. Change they got. Now they are complaining. As I heard one American rep refer to an election in the middle east, "That's not what we wanted".
Seem like very few have enough sense to demand in the change "what we want". MO
With BO reducing American military strength and: bowing down to the middle east, moving out of the way of Russia; giving away the internet, giving in to Iran it is probably a very smart plan for Japan to take steps for its own protection. China is trying to take its territory; Korea is firing rockets toward them, Russia is looking hard at some of its territory I think Japan is on the right track.
I do not believe they will just stand around like Ukraine when Russia just walked in and took over Crimea because Russia said it had a lot of its citizens there. MO........
Global warmers and idiot politicians do not realize that CO2 is one of the most important gases in the atmosphere. All plants need it to survive. They take in CO2 and grow and expel O for humans to breathe. What idiots. MO.
The only solution I see to this is that every employee be hired with a written contract that he negotiated with the employer. If he agrees to work for $12/hr that's what he gets. Another agrees for $15/hr and so forth. Plus, will be hired for x no of days renewable by the employer but can be released at the will of the employer for any reason even if they discuss their contract.. I think this is the only way this problem can be worked out....All hires will be with a negotiated contract. MO.
Raising the MW or 'we need' wage to $10.10/hr I forsee many small businesses closing. Most of the small businesses do not have enough daily traffic to remain in operation if non family people are needed to keep the front door open. Along with the 'we need' wage the employer must pay SS; workers comp; unemployment insurance; etc. The 'we need' wage for the employer is closer to $15/hr.
WOW. I sure am glad that some one has placed a post that has had at least ECON 101 and knows that raising wages raises the cost of all goods and services. Almost all other posters do not understand this.
The gov't mandating wage increases without concern for productivity fails to address the harm it does to those that are on a fixed income. This group is driven into abject poverty at an extremely rapid rate. Gov't rapidly raises the welfare benefits to accommodate all the social programs. SS is not included..... Obama wants 40+% increase for MW screaming "they need" that much to have a decent standard of living. He believes 1 1/2% raise for SS is ample. Shame, shame and shame. MO.......
Obama may save America but he is destroying seniors on fixed incomes. Shame, shame and shame.
The only one's that know what a company can pay is the company. The idiots in gov't that are demanding and increase in the We Need Wage have absolutely no idea what the company can afford. As the Supreme Court ruled in 1935 that MW was legal but it is not smart. The idiots in gov't are not smart.
The idiots want to raise everyone's income except those that are on a fixed income. Obama preaches 'FAIR', but there is no mention for increases for this group. Obama and congress are just throwing this group under the bus.
I guess they realize seniors on fixed incomes are a head ache so the easiest way to get rid of them is to starve them out. Rising costs, yes literally throws them under the bus. MO.
Shame, shame and shame on Obama and congress and state gov'ts. Wake up seniors.
This is the best example of gov't inefficiency. Put a dollar in the hand of gov't and it will disappear.
As a democrat I find Harry, Nancy and Barry a disgrace to the democrat party. I would vote to have the 3 exiled from the country with a sentence never to return the U.S. MO
Federal Gov't should get out of the medical and educational field. Give back to the states that which belongs to the states. Federal gov't is a waste when it comes to running any social programs. Let gov't take care of the areas specified in the constitution. MO
We need to change the penal system. Prisons must be for violent people only. We have loaded our prisons with non violent pot users and may sellers to pay for their own pot. It is idiotic to put people like this in prison, like Linsey Lohan, Arch Moore, et al..... Surely there is a better way to treat these "criminals"..
50 to 100 thousand dollars a year to keep non violent people in jail just doesn't make sense. MO
Easiest place for you to look would be in the un employment office. Did you see how many new claims for each week and the month. This tells you about job losses.
They don't cost that much. I knew a state delegate many years ago and his vote was bought for as little as a drink of whiskey and the most he ever got was $1,500 per vote.... How do I know this? I heard him say so.
Shame, shame and shame.
The radical arm of Islam was born in 1875. caledl Wahabi. Their goal then as is now and it is not negotiable: world domination with all infidels becoming muslims of they must die. The western world, Europe and N & S America better wake up and start putting a stop to this movement before the Wahabi have a complete upper hand. Iran adheres and are advocates to the Wahabi's. Radical islam is moving rapidly around the world. Wake up infidel world. MO
will be passed. Shame, shame and shame. CBO says up to 1 1/2 million people will lose their job over this. How many small businesses will this force to close?
