If you were already making $11-12 per hour, how would you feel about being demoted to minimum wage.
Increasing the minimum wage by that much would be grossly inflationary.
Even rich folks would want more to cover the higher cost of their Big Mac.
Why would any rational anyone, "demote" jobs back to minimum wage, when they could just adjust the wage economics accordingly, and implement a PRICE freeze on anything else.
Then there would be NO need demand "more" to cover any addition costs.
Kind of like that elusive to America thing the past few years, called a B-U-D-G-E-T.
Tsk.

Duh.

They coming to America...

"In suburbs of L.A., a cottage industry of birth tourism"

"USA Baby Care is one of scores, possibly hundreds, of companies operating so-called maternity hotels tucked away in residential neighborhoods in the San Gabriel Valley, Orange County and other Southern California suburbs. Pregnant women from Chinese-speaking countries pay as much as $20,000 to stay in the facilities during the final months of pregnancy, then spend an additional month recuperating and awaiting the new baby's U.S. passport."

True vegetable oil is what I've been known to use. President Obama has 4 years for more great accomplishments. Nobel Peace Prize winner wants a peaceful world starting here at home. This gun violence has got to stop. The NRA should endorse any proposal to make guns safer and our schools and various other facilities safe from gun violence.

Police should not have any weapons not available to the general public.

Probably more criminals per capita in police forces than in the general public.

The police should be our employees, not our masters.

Easy to say unless you lose close friends or hear of children being gunned down for no reason. Something has to be and will be done. Europe has very rare cases of gun violence why do they have to set the example.

Joshua Boston’s Letter to Dianne Feinstein

Senator Dianne Feinstein,

I will not register my weapons should this bill be passed, as I do not believe it is the government’s right to know what I own. Nor do I think it prudent to tell you what I own so that it may be taken from me by a group of people who enjoy armed protection yet decry me having the same a crime. You ma’am have overstepped a line that is not your domain. I am a Marine Corps Veteran of 8 years, and I will not have some woman who proclaims the evil of an inanimate object, yet carries one, tell me I may not have one.

I am not your subject. I am the man who keeps you free. I am not your servant. I am the person whom you serve. I am not your peasant. I am the flesh and blood of America.

I am the man who fought for my country. I am the man who learned. I am an American. You will not tell me that I must register my semi-automatic AR-15 because of the actions of some evil man.

I will not be disarmed to suit the fear that has been established by the media and your misinformation campaign against the American public.

We, the people, deserve better than you.

Respectfully Submitted,

Joshua Boston

Sacrificing liberty for the perception of security is never a good bargain.

Gun violence may be a problem in your neighborhood, but not so for most people.
