Since 1935 when the MW was 25/cents/hr, every time the MW has gone up so has the poverty line and it will continue to do so. This poverty line is created by the gov't, not the private sector. You need to do a little research your self. When MW goes up, welfare rules and regulation change to meet this new poverty line. Any way that was always the way it was during my 40 years working with welfare and I am sure it will continue to do so..
Idiot politicians and idiot economists refuse to understand RAISING THE MINIMUM WAGE - RAISES THE POVERTY LINE. ................................... The poverty line is where welfare benefits start. Think about it. Will raising MW reduce poverty and the number of people on welfare? Answer: NO.
PPS is low, but from what I have read on the 'net Sprint owns like $20 billion dollars worth of spectrum. I place Sprint in the same boat as TMUS, both are very likely candidates for an M or A. Carlos Slim is looking hard along with Ergan. Something big must happen to both.
ic: I am not out of touch, the carnivals and the circuses have pretty much closed down and the carny geeks are now on the street. Just my observation. Free country, pretty much, you can do as you please.
They all must be great compared to the other party because most of the other party is going to vote for them. Remember 'the other party' has fouled up the country for the past 6+ years. Every day 'the other party' passes another truck load of rules, regulations and laws to restrict the private citizen. Think about it.
A while back I thought some analysts had this company high on their list for an M or A. What has happened.????
I remember when Moses came down from the Mount after talking to God. He told the 'ite masses that God said to be fair, 'he created a lot of super idiots to mingle among the masses'. It definitely appears to be so.
SC ruled intent rather than the 'word of the law'. The word marriage is defined as the union of 1 man and 1 woman. They ruled intent. A gov't cannot stand defining laws both ways; word of the law and the other intent. They could have hastily coined a new word merriage to be defined as the union of 2 adults. This would have solved the problem and made every one reasonably happy.. The way they ruled: shame, shame and a shame. When you think about it what business is it of gov't to be involved in marriage anyway.
The majority of the people on ACA receive a subsidy or are on welfare-medicaid. The worker pays for it all, not the gov't..
How dense you are. Jesus was a Jew that believed in the Old Testament. He believed as God told Moses and Abraham that if you did not work you did not eat. Jesus was a conservative that believed 'that you helped those that could not help themselves'. He did not believe in feeding the doo-less. You need to re read your bible and understand what it says if you are going to quote it. .
rodney, of course BO will pay your bills, just get on one of his welfare programs-you don't have to work, he pays your bills and gives you so much cash on top of that. The last time I checked the D of L and stats the average dole was $32,200/year. So many people are working for less, they should figure out how to get on one of these programs. I fouled up-they told me I had too much education-they gave me a job.
Rand Paul is correct. For over 200 years gov't and idiots have preached :::: Separation of Church and Gov't or Gov't and Church. The idiots in the SC just ruled the gov't now dictates church beliefs. Shame, shame and a shame.
The Gospel of John defines 'hypocrite',. This definition defines liiberal/socialist/progressive. Better go back and read it again. Shame, shame and a shame to my democrat party.
Take as much money from those that have worked for it and give it to those that do not want to work. In all of my years working as an employment counselor I have never known one individual that wanted to work if he did not have to. Now you think. People prefer not to work. Would you get up and go to work if you did not have to. Those that answer yes are driven by their ability to make a LOT of easy money.
TV news: Did you know that the U. S. sends Iran about 200 million dollars a month in foreign aid? Shame, shame and a shame. I don't think the Bible says to give to your enemy so they will love you. mo
Food Stamp Nation = Social nation. Idiots better take a fast look at Greece. The gov't has taken just about all of the money from those that had some. U. S. gov't is doing the same thing. Shame, shame and a shame.
Greece is a socialist gov't. They have taken most of the money the 'haves' have to the point they cannot pay their bills. The U. S. gov't led by the democrat party that is mostly progressive/socialist/liberal that believes the same way as Greece, tax those that have some till they run out of money. Greece and the U. S. both are facing BK. Think about it. Donald Trump has address the U. S. problems perfectly. We are in big trouble. mo
1. Gay rights: Constitution says separation of Church and State or State and Church. Gov't is telling the churches they must perform same sex marriages. Shame, shame. Idiots should have hastily coined a new word, merriage, to satisfy the gay community. They ruled intent when they should have ruled word of law.
2. ACA, again they ruled intent rather than word of law. You cannot have half of the countries running on intent and the other half on 'word of law'. Shame, shame.
Shame, shame and shame. The SC made its decision on both ACA and homosexual MARRIAGE by intent of the laws and not by the word of the laws. SC wants it both ways. This is not the way the founding fathers set up the gov't. They believed "the word of the law". Shame, shame and a shame.
