"When is the tribulation is one of the most controversial issues in the chur of the mid-tribulational position.entieth “seven”(seven years) that is still yet to come. Daniel’s entire prophecy of the seventy sevens (Daniel 9:20-27) is speaking of the nation of Israel. It is a time period in whn why the church would need to be on the earth during that time.
The primary Scripture passage on the rapture is 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18. It states that all living believers, along with all believers who have died, will meet the Lord Jesus ans 5:9, Paul says,“For God did not appointo deliver Christians from wrath shortly after promising to remove His people from the earth seems to link those two events together.
Another crucial passage on the timing of the rapture is Revelation 3:10, in which Christ promises to deliver believers from the “hour of trial” that is going to come upon the earth. This could mean two things. Eito recognize what believers are promised to be kept from. It is not just the trial, but the “hour” of trial. Christ is promising to keep believers from the very time period that contains the trials, namely the tribulation. The purpose of the tribulation, the purpose of the rapture, the mean pre-tribulational position is the most biblically-based interpretation.

Costco CEO: Raise The Minimum Wage To More Than $10 Per Hour

"President Barack Obama wants to raise the federal minimum wage to $9 per hour. And the CEO of one of America's largest retailers says such a move would be good for workers and businesses alike. In fact, he says raise it even more.

On Tuesday, Costco CEO and President Craig Jelinek came out in support of the Fair Minimum Wage Act of 2013, which aims to raise the federal minimum wage to $10.10 per hour, then adjust it after that for inflation.

"At Costco, we know that paying employees good wages makes good sense for business," Jelinek said in a statement. "We pay a starting hourly wage of $11.50 in all states where we do business, and we are still able to keep our overhead costs low."

"An important reason for the success of Costco’s business model is the attraction and retention of great employees," Jelinek added. "Instead of minimizing wages, we know it's a lot more profitable in the long term to minimize employee turnover and maximize employee productivity, commitment and loyalty. We support efforts to increase the federal minimum wage."

Costco has a reputation for paying its employees above market rate, with the typical worker earning around $45,000 in 2011, according to Fortune. Walmart-owned Sam's Club, in contrast, pays its sales associates an average of $17,486 per year, according to salary information website Glassdoor.com .

Costco also provides health insurance to a significantly larger percentage of its workers than does Walmart, the Harvard Business Review reported in 2006.

Jelinek's predecessor, Costco founder Jim Sinegal, has also expressed support for raising the federal minimum wage in the past. "The more people make, the better lives they're going to have and the better consumers they're going to be," Sinegal told the Washington Post in 2007. "It's going to provide better jobs and better wages.""

Your whole schtick is making foolish comments based on others posts, and you ask me why I like to remind Flake how completely wrong he's been for several years concerning the economy?? Very recently, he was predicting a big setback for the economy. Now we're hitting all time highs and you nitwits are going to hear about it!!
It's not looking for a fight, because Flake never responds to his dumb calls. Homer catches him all the time.
I'm not allowed to crow a bit when you nitwits are all proven wrong about the strength of the economy, inspite of your sides attempts to stall it? In your freakin' dreams!!
Ya got a lot of gall, being a smartass yourself.
The current state of the stock market is an illusion. It's a bubble, just like housing, student loans, etc., and it will burst as soon as the Fed quits propping it up.

Crow on, but remember, there won't be any sauce when you are required to eat it.

You're really too unsophisticated to realize that protecting your profits are the most important thing?? That there are instruments that protect you from the downside?? Stop-loss for one??

First off, Corporations are recording record profits. That's not an illusion. You don't know what you're talking about, period.

You got the right name. Somebody hit you with that shovel once too often.

Then just quit pussyfooting around and raise it to $20 an hour. Why just go up a couple of bucks? Hell let's let everybody make over $100,000. Then you can tax the hell out of them too. Friggin' libtards are SO stupid!!!

if Topix was as important to me as it is to you, I might agree. But really, "Enan", I couldn't care less. Just make sure you keep the Niner pic updated (I'm thinking I need to pick one the brings out the Niner logo more).

Kinda like BushCo's faux housing market" "Get in before it's to late?"

It's always something right? Today it's the stock market rather than real estate__but__the good news is that beyond the usual stock hustlers making some bucks those with IRA's are back in business, or at least breathing more easily.

As a plus, gasoline prices are falling again.

If it wasn't for Topix and drones life would be grand eh?
