A few months back a commentator discussing gov't release of information that there is at least 20 known area in the U. S. that live under 'sharia law' and the federal gov't does nothing about it. These areas do not recognize city, county, state or federal law. If this is correct sham, shame and shame on our gov't. MO
I remember when prostitutes in Mexico cost 25 cent, in upstate CA they cost $5 to $10 dollars. How times have changed.
200k new jobs a month created----over 200k new youth enter the labor mkt each month. This administration not doing much to help the unemployed. MO
Dep't of Labor and Stats reports only about 2% of the American work force works for minimum wage, earning about $1,250/month.. President says they need about a 40% increase ... OK Gov't SS says the average income for a SS recipient is about $1,100/month and they only need about a 1% increase. Something bad wrong with the presidents thinking.
President speaks: Fair. This ain't fair. MO.
maybe not on medication for mental illness, but on a program that says they do not have to work. Do not blame the recipient. They are not stupid. Liberal politicians are stupid. Thinki about it, why work if you don't have to? Humans demonstrate daily they do not like to work. They call in sick, they want a shorter than 40 hr work week, they want sick leave, they want vacations, they want to retire early, any excuse not to work.
And liberal politicians believe people are anxious to work when they don't have to .... Idiots. MO
The only thing that maintains peace is a v. strong leader/country. 1945 this was explained to me by a philosopher, the only way to have world peace is to have one country lay down and enforce the rules of peace. It makes more sense today.
This philosophy worked for a while in Rome until its leaders became corrupt and corruption is happening in the U. S. MO.
bach may never have, but I used to guard atomic bombs when I was v. young. Never had one stolen on my watch..
This president does not understand the are of negotiating. He needs to read a little history. Go back to Teddy Roosevelt: Speak softly but carry a big stick. BO speaks softly, but no one pays any attention to him.
Thinki. Putin is speaking softly but he is carrying a big stick. E. Ukraine how softly he speaks about it, but he has 40k armed troops ready to enforce his soft speak.
Idiotic approach to a cancer, ISIS, in the words of BO is containment. Everyone knows that containment of a cancer is just to slow its growth or end result. Instead of it killing you in a week it takes 2 months. (Friend of mine had cancer, doctors told him with treatment he could live 2 months longer. He opted not to have treatment.) AJMO
WOW! What a smart CEO.
Did you declare all of that income and pay your income tax?
Yes I was in the military service when the starting salary was $67.50 a month. This was way below MW at that time. Starting salary today in the military service is a little over $1,700 a month.
But what does this have to do with what an employer can pay? Many start up businesses in order to be a success cannot afford to pay MW, but idiots believe they can..
In 1935 the U. S. Supreme Court ruled 5-4 that minimum wage was legal, but 'not smart. 75+ years later and it is still not smart. Any way you try to justify MW is idiotic. Gov't mandating wages is idiotic thinking of the highest order. Again, not one elected rep knows what any employer can pay. EIC makes much more sense.
Remember in a democracy, , you have the right to work for an employer or not. If you do not like his pay scale you can quit and find another job. Why have unions if gov't mandates all benefits.
Any economist that has had Econ 101 knows that when you raise wages you raise the cost of all goods and services. You have more money to spend but you buy less. Thinki about it. JMO.
Question/ How in the world do you know what any employer can pay? You don't. You are exhibiting the most idiotic thinking. True an employee needs to earn a decent wage, but your mandating wages that you have no knowledge of is pure idiocy
You are mandating about a 40% increase in wages because you BELIEVE they need more money to spend. At the same time people on fixed income you BELIEVE they only need 1% increase. Something is super bad wrong with the brains of our elected reps. MO
Example: A little store near me needs at least 3 people to operate, traffic is very low, business is slow, but the idiots in gov't know the owner can increase their wages. Can you understand that reps are idiots? MO. .
Those of you that believe in the Bible, that God is, was and forever more shall be, you must believe that he was busy creating things before he created this universe . If you believe in the God you say you believe in then any thing you can think of is possible for this God. Universes before this one; parallel universes; a heaven; and any thing else you and scientists can conjure up..
Most of you, in the God you created/believe in you leave just one thing out that I believe. God is logical. Most of you exclude this quality from your God.
Example: The miracles in the Bible. No God of yours would do such things, but if you make him logical then he created these miracles for you. Thinki about it.
Continued: And God created the heavens and the earth out of nothing. Scientists have just about proven that everything IS made out of nothing. Science and the Bible describe exactly the same thing. You people need to learn how to read the Bible and read a lot of science.i
starting point for the negotiations for the take over of TMUS. DT did not state they will sell for 35, they said that is a good starting point although with heavy negotiating and they cannot do any better. .
