(The way I heard it.) The gov't must take care of all the unemployed by giving them a living wage $12/hour job. They don't have to do any thing just be employed. How stupid can one get? If this comes about I want one of these jobs. I'll cancel my measly SS check and be unemployed, his plan is better than my SS...... Our country is being run by idiots. ECON 101 says a job must produce some wealth someway.
I think what Dennis was really saying is put all the unemployed on welfare at $12/hour for 40 hr/wk and you don't have to worry about them anymore.
The middle class. Obama finally realizes that the middle and low class have all of the money. Compared to the rich, the middle and low class individuals do not have that much, but there are so many in these classes. Obama wants to take what little we have and waste it.
MSNBC should be thrashed. Bashir should have been fired for conduct unbecoming a newscaster, but they let him off easy. They let him resign probably with massive benefits. Probably will rehire him as soon as the heat dies down. Just like the federal gov't.,
Did you know it is OK for the wind farms to kill hundreds of eagles, both bald and golden with no penalty, but if you kill 1 a big time fine and possible jail time. Rules, regulations and laws do not pertain to all equally.
Shame, shame and shame.
100% of all humans are segregationists to a degree. Think about it. Just look at any community. Segregation is all around us. The nice thing is there are no gov't laws forcing us to do so.
Woodstock, if gov't had let me put into a private fund what was being put into SS my monthly income would have been at least 6 times what I get from SS.
Have someone compute for you how much better off you would be with your own retirement plan. Wake up.
I have no problems with unions. I have worked as a union employee and I have worked non union. I still love my unions but I still hate yours. Mine gets ME HIGHER BENEFITS, yours raises costs of goods and services. (Like mine doesn't),
Unions that preach higher MW which increases the costs of goods and services which increases the cost of living, always have in their contracts as COL goes up their pay is adjusted. They are not hurt by raising MW.
Who is hurt with MW? All of you seniors that are on fixed incomes need to scream very loud that gov't is driving you faster into starvation. Gov't raises cost of living but you income does not go up.
Reading these posts and what I read is that you have elected idiots to govern us. Your reps subsidize those things that just raise prices and put dollars in their pockets. It sounds like to me that you want the gov't to get out of private industry.... No where in the constitution does it justify most federal gov't behavior....
Minimum is just one of the ways gov't has restricted free choice. Did you know you could go to jail if you chose to work for minimum wage?
even for part time or minimum wage jobs. This will keep employers out of trouble for most things. Employees must perform or they can be laid off at employers convience.
Idiots refuse to believe earth goes through temperature cycles.
Humans should think about all of the disasters that are probably going to happen before massive warming or massive cooling. Disasters: Big asteroid; Yellow stone super volcano; Mr. Vesuvius super volcano; super east coast 1,000 foot tsunami; west coast 1,000 foot tsunami; nuclear war; world epidemic; religious war; great depression; over population; etc.
Think about it. Get off of the temperature wagon.
1935 The US Supreme Court ruled that MW was legal but it was/is not smart. 80 years and idiots have been pushing something the SC says is not smart. In a democracy wages and benefits are supposed to be between labor and mgt, not labor and gov't. The idiot gov't does not know whan any employer can pay.
Idiots quote the salary and benefits of CEO's is X times entry level workers. This sounds bad, but you don't hear them scream about basket ball players;, football players; baseball players, movie actors, TV news casters etc and their multi million dollar salaries. What is fair about that? Gov't should regulate their benefits.
Our problem is idiots that represent us.
Thanks a lot. I plan to sell some of mine to cover some of my gains. I believe I will come out way ahead by not having to pay as much income tax. Old soldiers don't always know everything
Woodstock, lemon, etc. You have some good points. I have no objections to some of them. If an employer wants to pay a $100/hour they have my blessing. What I do have an objection to is the idiot president, congress and unions wanting gov't to mandate what an employer pays. The role of unions is good, the role of gov't is bad.
This occurred yesterday in a discussion of minimum wage. One person was adamant MW should go to 15/hr. I ask him if he hired a young person to cut his grass did he think the gov't should tell him he had to pay him 15/hr. He said no way. He said then gov't shouldn't tell him what to pay.
It is hard to get this through idiots heads.
Only idiots believe 18 to 29 year old youths in good health are anxious to give up a large part of their low entry level earnings to pay for health insurance..
barney must be in the very high income level if he is saving $13,000 on his ACA plan. Just think saving 13k, still paying about 12k. This 25k dollars a year he was paying out. Must have a 250k/year income.
Young people do not make that kind of money.
It really sounds like you are a welfare recipient or some other gov't taker.... 5 hours ago you should be working. You have time to listen to Rush.
Dept of labor and Stats reports about 200k new jobs in the private sector each month. Obama and his henchmen try to brain wash you that this is great. I want you to think a little. How can this be good when we have about 230k new youth entering the labor mkt each month. New job creation does not cover just the new youth. Now, there is approx. 21.7 million people still unemployed, underemployed and stopped looking for work. Obama does not mention these.
The idiots want to raise the MW and that will hurt the labor mkt even more..
////Shame, shame and shame.
As a good Catholic, I agree with Varney, Politics and religion don't mix. The church and charity got left out when gov;t took over the role of 'charity giver'. We pay through the nose in taxes way above the 10% charity rule. Obama is head of charity. He force takes from the 'makers' to give to the doo-less takers'. MO.
Just look what unions and corrupt politicians have done to both. Will BO bail them out with our hard earned dollars. I vote no as a die hard democrat. As my Daddy used to say, "You've made your bed, now sleep in it". .
Shame, shame and shame.
