If you have three minimum wage employees and the minimum wage is increased so that you can only afford two, you lay off the one most likely to have voted for Obama and make the other two work harder to take up the slack.
wrong analogy.....the damn business need to close if they think someone is going to work their azz off for chicken feed. poor service and a bad attitude has doomed more than one business. remember circuit city.

most of you jokers never worked at a min. wage job. who the hell can survive on chicken feed when the cost of doing business is steadily on the rise. blame not the buck, but those entities that cause ppl. to pay more than they should for goods and services. the OIL industry is the biggest one that does a criminal job on working ppl.
To the contrary, most of us worked at part-time minimum wage jobs when we were teenagers living at home with our parents. If you have a family and can find only a minimum wage job, blame either your lack of job skills or Obama.

When prices are increased because of mandated, unjustified wage increases, then consumers must make do with less and fewer employees are needed.
When in history has an increase in the minimum wage hurt job growth?

Bobby Jindal the ONE who saved Louisiana from the Oil Spill?
See? You hate Hispanic, Indians and other minorities!!!
If you are a Liberal then you also hate blacks, specially the ones that are not Liberals easy to fool!!!
With his data-rich calls for the creation of sand booms and other coastal defense measures, and his very visible efforts to pressure the federal government to take more aggressive action, Jindal has come to embody the response to the oil spill. There's something decidedly unconservative about Jindal's hands-on approach

obama has nothing to do with someone not having a job. he doesn't hire for the private sector.....matter of fact if it wasn't for gov't hiring and contract spending unemployment would be a lot higher. wait and see what happens when those teaBUMS no longer get those gov't spending perks.

Nobraina proves his stupidity once again.

//Turns out Texas was the state that depended the most on those very stimulus funds to plug nearly 97% of its shortfall for fiscal 2010, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.

Even budget deficits are bigger in Texas
Texas, which crafts a budget every two years, was facing a $6.6 billion shortfall for its 2010-2011 fiscal years. It plugged nearly all of that deficit with $6.4 billion in Recovery Act money///

The U.S. Defense Department is expected to announce Wednesday a new medal for drone and cyber war operators who have a direct impact on combat operations from far away, the AP reports:
The Associated Press has learned that the new blue, red and white-ribboned Distinguished Warfare Medal will be awarded to individuals for ‘‘extraordinary achievement’’ related to a military operation that occurred after Sept. 11, 2001. But unlike other combat medals, it does not require the recipient risk his or her life to get it.
The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because the announcement had not yet been made.
A recognition of the evolving 21st Century warfare, the medal will be considered a bit higher in ranking than the Bronze Star, but is lower than the Silver Star, defense officials said.

Red-White_Blue Ribbons are inappropriate.

Something akin to a windshield bug-splat would be more fitting.
Or a Golden Flyswatter Award.
