I also meant to toss John Kerry in there as well. Think John Kerry pays for his health care?

The State of the Union address is a bunch of bullshit lies. Lie after lie after lie. I just wish he would tell the truth. I wish he would say "I have every intention of shrinking our national defense and use the money saved to pay for national healthcare", after all this is what he wants to do.

A $9 minimum wage would crush an already struggling economy. Keep in mind this proposal came from a man that has never ran a business or passed a budget.

Obama is doing the best he can. No one said being the President of the United States is an EASY job. If any one on this forum can do better, then by all means, start planning and running for 2016.

I don't think any one on this forum has been happy with ANY President. All you people do is Bitch, Bitch and Bitch some more. Must be an exciting life.

Yes, I agree. I did some reading yesterday and the Catholic Church may be headed for bankruptcy, due to lawsuits against them for sexual abuse of children by priests. Do you think that abolishing the vow of celibacy within the church might stop or slow this abuse?

Damn, you're on a roll!
Since most companies operate on a very small profit margin, where does he expect the money for a raise to come from? Most businesses aren't growing so that only leaves an increase in the price of goods and services to offset the raises! In govt, he just raises taxes or borrows from China to offset his spending, it doesn't work that way in buisness. Borrowing money or raising prices to cover payroll is a sure fire way to bankruptcy in a consumer driving environment!
Is VERY OBVIOUS this man has NO buisness experience!

Of course it's also obvious that the dumb masses has been dumbed down to the point to where they don't understand how business works either! Instead they'll cheer for an increase in min wage, then bitch when the prices increase or the jobs are lost all together!

So, the minimum wage is now what $7.15 per hour? That's a yearly gross of $14,872. If the minimum age is raised to $9.00 per hour, that's a yearly gross of $18,720. Just how many of you could live on either of these wages, that is after taxes?

It's called living within your means. At $9 an hour, you can't afford a $30k car, a house of any kind, you don't NEED a cell phone or premium TV, or that 60" flat screen to watch it on, or an xbox to play on that big screen, you dont eat out 5 nights a week, you don't need a computer, etc... You live within your means! The problem is we have become an entitlement society to where everyone believes they're entitled to those things regardless of their income.
The "poor" in America aren't poor by the worlds standards, they're spoiled. Ask anyone in Africa or the Middle East, where we give billions to ever year, if they could live off of $19k a year? They'd fell like billionaires!

Just asking, how many hours a week are you using? When I worked for Belk, full time was 32 hours a week.

Interesting theory. Given even infinite time, the probability of that is infinitesimal although a possibility. Many possibilities exist which will never happen.

You must remember the President spends hours practicing bowling, golf, cards, because he likes to win. Because I know it's gonna be asked: http://www.forbes.com/sites/richkarlgaard/201...
