Tho it's none of my business who dates who, we as a society need to ask ourselves, is it worth shredding the fabric in which this country was founded on? The answer to that question is no! It's not about whether a person is gay or not. It's about making sure our children, & future children know the difference between a man & a woman, not be confused before their little brain are developed enuff to assess for themselves how they feel!
Maybe RealDave's brain has been washed one, two, three, many times...

RealDave forever enslaved to his own ignorance, "born with deranged behavior".. living his failed miserable lifestyle... Or maybe it could be his old age or the bleach that has absorbed into his retarded head or tattoo ink leaching into RealDave's brain, that's making his deranged behavior or common sense fade...

Minimum wage should be raised in certain instances and deductions should be capped (specifically Fortune 500 companies and their spin offs)

Ponder that, while you worship the root of much evil.

Co-workers have sex all the time. Sometimes between different management levels.
Tell me again why the Republicans were asking Clinton about this?? Were they jealous?
Newt Gingrich led the charge to get Clinton when he was having an affair himself. Once he had his Chauffeur take his 5 year old daughter for a walk while he " shoved his meat" down the throat of his girlfriend. How many of you right whiners voted for him in he past?
Heck, you voted for John McCain who dumped his wife who waited for him to return from war in order to marry a rich b*tch.
and then on rare occassion, Duh A Vey makes some sense out of reality lol.

Yesterday the Florida Senate passed a bill that severely limits the use of drones by state and municipal agencies. looks like the police departments that raced out and purchased the UAV's are S.O.L.

Oh well, it's only taxpayer money right???

They need to get rid of the federal minimum wage.
It for sure is way too high.
The minimum wage serves no purpose except to just screw things up,
and used as a wedge issue and buy votes.

While homosexuals vehemently reject being considered mentally ill, RealDave has no problems regarding those who dislike criminals or homosexual behavior as mentally ill.. The next thing homosexuals and criminals will want, their deranged behavior to be called normal..

Tea party titan Rand Paul, visiting Howard University on Wednesday, told students that he had been called “either brave or crazy to be here” at the historically black college.

Probably some of each: brave, because he’s trying to sell himself and fellow Republicans to African Americans, a singularly resistant demographic; and crazy, because he based his pitch on revised history and airbrushed facts — and the Howard kids weren’t fooled.

First Thoughts: Rand Paul’s Howard Speech

....What was missing?— Towards the end of the speech I had this interview with MBD in mind:

Most conservatives like to think that they have principles that are color-blind: the eternal verities and such. I think this is a kind of self-flattery that excuses historical ignorance on our part. Enslavement stripped Africans of their ethnicities, their languages, and their religion. That means more than any one other group in this country African-Americans are a people created by the history of our nation and its politics: commerce, slavery, the Civil War, emancipation, the civil rights movement. It is a naïveté bordering on psychosis to suggest that black politics should conform to some imagined color-blind set of principles. Just junk that and start reaching out into the black community. I sense a real hunger on their part for political competition for their vote and support.

There is an absolutely electrifying intellectual tradition of black self-sufficiency and independence that is a good fit within a big-tent conservatism. And it is larger than Booker T. Washington. Zora Neal Hurston endorsed Robert Taft in the 1950s. Malcolm X was in many ways both more radical than King and more conservative too. This tradition is not at all color-blind, but it is localist, communitarian, religious (Muslim and Christian), and entrepreneurial. I also think conservatives should start political discussions on our drug war, on prison reform, and on policing that can and should help us re-connect with African Americans.

Senator Paul mostly avoided the tone-deafness of the sort Dougherty describes in the first paragraph, and he absolutely deserves credit for taking up some of those criminal justice reforms. But if Paul had framed his argument in terms of the consonance between conservative values and the black intellectual tradition instead of the GOP’s civil rights history, which is largely irrelevant today, I have a feeling he might have received a less tepid response. Of course it’s not his tradition to interpret, but he could have made the point gracefully.

Don't know exactly where you all from but, here in these parts of Jersey, the cost for a 3br apt is anywhere from $1000 to$1200. 2 adults making minimum wage can barely make that rent. The cost of living has steadily increased, while the minimum wage hasn't budged, & the times it has gone up wasn't enuff to match the cost of living. Everybody can't be doctors, lawyers, architects, or even business owners. Someone has to do the jobs most people done want to do. Even some college grads are taking jobs out of their career areas with lower incomes. This causes a trickle down effect. Every different job in America serves as a cog in the chain that makes this whole thing work. No one is promoting that these people should make as much money as you or be able to afford your lifestyle at all but, every job paying employees to perform a service, deserves to keep up with the cost of living. As of right now, it is too low & needs to be adjusted to match the rise in the cost of living. We live in a competitive world but, no one man is any better than any other man. You have the fortunate & unfortunate. Both are Americans & deserve to be treated & compensated as such!

If a person has no marketable skill sets then they may have to work multiple menial jobs to make ends meet. It is not the employers responsibility to insure that their employee can make ends meet. That is the responsibility of the individual. Part of that responsibility is to attempt to make yourself marketable and take steps to keep skill sets current.

Not all jobs are worth minimum wage just as not all individuals are worth minimum wage.

The min. wage does very little in they of addressing the problems
you listed....well except only makes things worse.
Its all about the kind of job and skill level of the earner.
Entry low skill jobs will always be low paying....min. wage or no
min. wage.
Increasing the min. wage only distorts the market, increases prices
and serves to increase demand on things such as rent.
My opinion those who earn min. wage have kept pace with infl. far better then middle income working people.
Its the middle income workers that have not only seen their
earnings not keep up...but have gone down in recent years.
But the min. wage has been increased to absurd levels.

Simple fact is someone who income is based on a news paper route
is not going to be able to pay for such things like high rent, its
not intended to do so.

There is such a thing as upward mobility and the desire for it,
to screw with that desire is dangerous.
