Simple solution but a vote loser. Since gov't mandates employers pay a minimum wage then it is a fair wage to those employers that can afford to pay it. Gov't can, just raise our taxes. Country needs jobs, not welfare. Let the gov't create meaning jobs that just pay MW and no more regardless of how long you work on it. This should eliminate welfare, but it wont because of the socialist/liberal politicians that this is degrading.
Americans really prefer to work and support themselves, but not if someone else will support them-gov't. A the present average income for a family of 4 on welfare is $32,200/year. Internet numbers.
In the words of one welfare claimant, "If I am going to have to work for my welfare check, I'm going to go get me a good job". Last I saw of that claimant.
Goal to destroy ISIS. This is fanatical belief of the very radical arm of the Islamic religion.
The only way the world can even come close to destroying ISIS is to kill all of the ISIS fighters of today. Then any individual that claims to be of that faith or caught in that group of radicals must be arrested and imprisoned for life. As a rule fanatics never give up their fanatical beliefs. So the only way to destroy ISIS is all of that group must be jailed or killed. Severe problems require severe solutions.
The leaders also talk of controlling ISIS, just words to pacify the masses. AJMO.
Democrats do not use Webster's definition of war. Democrats, the president and S of S define war as war when we say it is war and at this time they do not say we are at war. Therefore the pres. and S of S are not at war. Just a matter of whose definition you use. Just like slick willie said, "wht the little girl did to me was not sex'. Just definitions.
If Slick willie had been a commoner he would be spending the rest of his life in prison for rape. Read the law pertaining to Boss and employee. JMO.
I do not doubt what you say. The Cad. may have belonged to someone else. As associate of mine is on one of the gov't socialist programs, I don't know which. Since I have known him about 4 years he has complained about not having any money. We his friends always paid for his coffee /... Guess what? About 3 months ago he surprised us when he drove up in a new Silverado, stated it cost just a little less than 40k.
Poverty today is not defined as it was when I was a kid. Today you are poverty if you only have a: car or truck; nice living quarters; TV, cell phone, medical, dental, optical, etc, etc and etc. Welfare value in most states the average is $32,200/year. And you don't have to work. WOW. .
Temp in cities does go up. Why? Trees cut down and much of the city surface is paved or concrete which absorbs heat.
When I worked at Welfare Dept I was raked over the coals many times for suggesting that people on welfare should be forced on birth control. Guess what? I was reprimanded for my stand. I was told from upper level mgt it was their right to have babies and we should not interfere. I lost the battle.
In one of my other lives, the one when Moses came down from the Mount and addressed the 'ites after talking to God. God said that he has created some idiots to mingle in with the masses just for kicks. When individuals like the 'fox' make such statements it is evident that this is one of the idiots that God created to mingle.
Idiotic statements that business people have killed more than ISIS by expelling CO2 from their mouths and rear ends must be the one God was talking about. WOW! He blames the bros. for floods, hurricanes, etc, etc and etc. Shame, shame and shame.
Idiots. This year San Diego just brought the high temp of that city since 1898. And idiots call this global warming.
Idiots need to understand weather cycles. One extreme to the other. Ice age to earth tropical.
You have to be an idiot to believe that humans are the cause of the 'so called global warming' .... Quite a few idiots in this administration from #1 democrat down to the local gov't idiots. z,pzzMO
If I could figure out how to get on one of these good programs that provides me with: low cost housing; food stamps; Medicaid I would vote for the democrats this election, but to date I can't get a penny from the gov't.
I don't think single people are eligible for welfare per se. They are eligible for food stamps; low cost housing and Medicaid. I think. Not far from welfare but not the welfare program. Get all of this and you still don't have to work.
As the cost of labor goes up, in this case the mandated increase in the minimum wage, companies will figure out how to use fewer employees. Many educated idiots do not under stand this simple rule. Easy examples: Gas stations no longer have attendants-cheaper to install self service pumps; take a look at Wal Mart almost half of the check out lines are self service; look at coal mines machinery has replaced 90+% of the miners; auto mfg-robots now do about 98% of welding and painting; etc, etc and etc.
Gov't in the private sector does not help employment, it hinders it.
Posters here are still thinking a wall with machines on to stops people from crossing. What idiots. The Berlin wall had all of the instruments to keep people from crossing and they still crossed. Why? The gov't and people in West Berlin welcomed anyone from East Berlin that got through the wall. The same thing on our southern border, the elected idiots 'seems' to welcome those that make it into the main land. The mayor or NY is giving all of his NY illegals certificates that just about makes them citizens. Shame, shame and shame. MO.
From what I understand about ACA, 75 is the magic number. I suggest you get someone that is a little more knowledgeable about ACA and 75.
are screaming seal the border. No wall or fence has ever kept people out. What keeps them out is the fact that they are not welcome. The WH fence should help the idiots understand this. Gov't must start enforcing at least the present laws that are on the books. Citizens must obey the laws or they go to jail. The same rules MUST apply to illegals. The president and congress and mayor of NY must stop excusing them for violating the law.
You idiot. Making a person work for his welfare is degrading. Going way back: welfare provided commodities-degrading gave food stamps-degrading gave credit card. It is very embarrassing to be on welfare. Do what ever is necessary so the neighbors wont know. Shame, shame and shame. MO
How do you get SS and medicare as socialist programs. People have paid big premiums for theses.
Your socialist programs are: welfare; food stamps; Medicaid; Re-Hab; Minimum wage; and any other program that the gov't pays for. And, there are a lot.
Time to get the gov't out of the private sector. MO
I read an article by some analyst (?) don't remember his name he said: this stock is a real gamble. It has the potential to go to a zillion dollars or with a lot of bad luck go to zero in a flash. He recommended if you are a gambler hold for a few quarters.
At this time I would not vote for Hillary. You are a dreamer, your life will change regardless of who wins. Odds are with the zillion new rules, regulations and laws passed in the last 5 years and growing each month your life will change for worse. MO
