Barack Obama, our next President

I agree, but these idiots think one should be able to live off of minimum wage.
Raising the Minimum Wage Hurts the Poor

Minimum wage workers tend be young and unskilled. Less than half of workers under the age of 25 are currently employed and many rely on low paying opportunities to get their first break. The majority will earn a raise within a year, but they currently lack the experience and skill to compete for higher paying jobs.

Raising the minimum wage makes it harder for these inexperienced workers to find a job, because businesses will either eliminate positions or choose to hire someone with more experience at the higher mandated wage. Minimum wage jobs could also be a pathway to retraining for workers facing a mismatch between their skills and available openings.

A higher minimum wage would limit such opportunities, and that's particularly dangerous during this historically slow recovery.

Rush Limbaugh and the long, sordid history of pitting whites against blacks in America
But before we get to that history, it's worth going over exactly what happened this week to our erstwhile defender of white people, Mr. Limbaugh. Here's the falsehood he peddled to his listeners on Tuesday:
There’s a professor…a liberal professor named Noel Ignatiev, and he is actually teaching—and I am not making this up—he is actually teaching and telling white male students to commit suicide to benefit society.
In mid-stream Limbaugh was informed by one of his staffers that the story of this lecture was actually a hoax. But, if the comment boards on the right-wing websites that also picked up the same tale are any indication, right-wingers had no problem believing it was true. And think about the absurd sense of victimhood a white person would have to feel to (a) believe this actually happened, and (b) be concerned that such a sentiment could have any effect on his or her actual life.
This stuff plays into exactly the kind of white identity politics right-wingers like Limbaugh feed into. The right-wing base's political strategy now consists in large part of stoking white fear that the all-powerful minorities (ha!) and their liberal, white, race-traitor allies are going to somehow oppress white people. The practitioners of white identity politics have become experts at playing the victim.
http://www.dailykos.com/story/2013/12/01/1258...
Noel Ignatiev, a white Marxist who wants to abolish the white race. The guy is a nut job on the leftist side. He has been teaching against the white race for over a decade that I know of--and yet...this is the first you have heard of the Marxist? Right wrong or indifferent, I am glad Rush brought it up. He also has stated that Israel should be blown up--another leftist liberal dream in the democrat party... but hey Sonic you want to defend the loon--go right ahead.

Here is another quote from Noel Ignatiev: I believe, personally, that on the day that Nordic white men first watched Jewish- made pornography with white women being abused and degraded by blacks, and did nothing, that this marked the death of our society.


*Those sick Hollywood Jews, that make up the democrat party. That's what he is talking about Sonic. And the blacks...OMG...the down fall of society. But he is one of yours. Bravo.

AHAHAHA ... "Trayvon is dead because he wore a hoodie ..."

Trayvon is dead because he was lurking with intent to harm another.

Self-Defense is NOT Murder. End of Case. End of Story.

So, why was a 78 year old Woman assaulted by a gang of young black thugs? Because she was White. And how many Dead from this Knock Out Game? Well, I guess Trayvon played. And Lost!

Racism will end when people like you stop justifying it.

And Racists ( like yourself ) start owning up to their part of/in the problem. Consequences & Accountability.

but then if the cops had shot the guy they could have pleaded self defense and got away with it. so there is that.

The two things they don't tell you. If minimum wage goes to $15 an hour should every one else's wage go up the same amount or the person who now makes $15 gets screwed? The push for a higher minimum wage isn't about the people. Raising the minimum wage will hurt poor people and the cost of everything will go up to cover the wage. A net zero gain. The real reason for the push for a higher minimum wage is (TaDa!!) more tax revenue. Higher pay means more withholding.

Floating tax haven for the rich; the idea sails again
CNBC
The "Freedom Ship International," a one-mile long, 25-story tall behemoth, pictured in the artist's rendering above, is out looking for funding.
The idea of a floating island for the rich seems to bubble up every year or so.
There was the project called the "WHY 58X38," a 10,000-square-foot motorized island announced in 2010 that could rove around the world with its own beach and pool. Then there was "Utopia," the 200-foot-tall "floating city" that had its own restaurants, shops, and homes.
Then there's the Seasteading Institute, a group founded with billionaire venture capitalist Peter Thiel that hoped to launch a "visa-free" ship for tech workers by 2014.
So far, none has become a reality. But that hasn't stopped the biggest-ever idea for a floating city from ascending back into the limelight.
The "Freedom Ship International," a one-mile long, 25-story tall behemoth, pictured in the artist's rendering above, is out looking for funding. The Freedom Ship could house 50,000 to 80,000 people and would have its own casino, hotel, shopping malls and apartments.
The directors say the $10 billion project needs at least $1 billion in funding to get off the ground.
While media curiosity remains high, the company has yet to secure any real financing. Roger M. Gooch, the marketing chief and a director of Freedom Ship International, said he thinks the company has "maybe a 25 percent" chance of getting enough funding to start construction.
"It's an unproven concept and would have to be heavily capitalized, so potential venture capitalists need to be very forward thinking and visionary to invest," Gooch said. The company would also be happy to partner with an engineering or maritime firm that had more experience in building large vessels, he said.
Gooch is a veteran of the insurance industry and another partner is a former FBI official. The project was first floated in the late 1990s, but was tabled during the recession. Now, Gooch said, "we decided to see if there was interest. And clearly there is."
Consumers looking to buy homes or operate businesses on the Freedom Ship have barraged him with emails.
Some have accused Freedom Ship of being the ultimate tax haven for the rich. Gooch said the ship would look for a favorable registering country, probably not the U.S. It would never actually dock in any country and would circumnavigate the globe every two years powered by solar and wave energy.
Gooch said the project is not "elitist," like "The World" cruise ship or other massive luxury cruise-liners. He said some units on the ship will rent for only $50,000 for two weeks—while the large luxury units could sell for more than $7 million.
"This is an autonomous, self-supporting city on a water-born platform," Gooch said. "It's not a modified conventional cruise-ship for elitists."
Of course, right now, Freedom Ship is more of a fun series of renderings than an economic reality.
