Doubling the minimum wage is selfish? Let me tell you what's selfish.
When someone like you pisses and moans about paying a little more for their cholesterol fix at McDonalds so some of your fellow citizens can earn a living wage is selfish.
The fact that the six Walton heirs who control more wealth than the bottom 40% of the population pay their employees so little that many of them are forced to seek government help to make ends meet is incredibly selfish.
To bring the minimum wage up to the buying power it had in 1968 it would need to be raised $3.50 which is not quite double but close to it.
so, when you raise the minimum wage by $3.50, how much do you raise the pay of everyone else???

Global Warming Task Force Snowed In

The political left has an uncanny knack for placing ideology ahead of reality. Though this phenomenon is seen in virtually all progressive policies, it is perhaps most pronounced in the left’s blind allegiance to the theory of man-caused global warming.
Though global temperatures did increase modestly during the 1990s, that trend has since leveled off, ultimately resulting in record cold temperatures across the U.S. in recent years. Despite the fact that NASA satellites recently reported the coldest temperature ever measured on the face of the earth, global warming proponents continue to castigate “deniers” as a group dedicated to destroying the world.
In reality, the only denial taking place is on the part of activists who refuse to recognize basic meteorological facts.
This trend was highlighted this week as the White House hosted the State, Local, and Tribal Leaders Task Force on Climate Preparedness and Resilience. The group headed to Washington, D.C. to discuss a plan of action against the perceived threat of global warming just as a massive winter storm struck the nation’s capital.
One of the participants, Gov. Pat Quinn of Obama’s beloved Illinois, made the trip Tuesday after Chicago experienced its coldest night in nearly 20 years. Everyone on the task force got a taste of reality as D.C. was largely shut down due to inclement weather.
Though government offices were closed, the global warming summit continued as planned. This delicious irony was apparently lost on these cult-like adherents to a flawed climatological hypothesis.
Barack Obama seemed to usher in the cold front when he established the task force last month. Since then, states that rarely experience frigid storms have largely been brought to a standstill due to deep deposits of ice and snow.
No matter the bevy of empirical evidence disproving their faulty logic, however, those with a predilection toward blaming humans for raping the planet will never realize the error of their ways. God-given resources populate this planet in abundance; and, provide we do so responsibly, humans can make use of such materials without having a detrimental — or even noticeable — effect on the planet.
In their pursuit of control and moral superiority, these radicals claim that any weather-related anomaly proves their point. The truth, though, is that their predictions have failed so often and completely that any adherence to man-caused global warming in entirely faith-based.

What a great source. A right whiner blogger.

So how exactly did thee rising temperatures that brought us the warmest decade in recorded history leveling off cause the coldest winters?
Isn't this an example of a weather anomaly that this moron says proves thatMMGW is a myth.

Nothing like a spell of cold weather to the the radically stupid MMGW deniers to make asses out of themselves yet again.

Global cooling: Are we headed into a ‘little ice age?’

12:44 PM 10/29/2013

Global warming? More like global cooling, according to a leading U.K. scientist.

Professor Mike Lockwood from Reading University told the BBC that at the current rate of decline in solar activity, there is a risk that Northern Europe could become much colder and enter a new “Little Ice Age.”

The “Little Ice Age” refers to a period during the 1600s when winters were harsh all across Europe. The cold weather that plagued the continent coincided with an inactive sun, called the Maunder solar minimum.

Lockwood argues that during the late 20th century, the sun was unusually active, with the so-called “grand maximum” of solar activity occurring around 1985. But solar activity has decreased since then.

“By looking back at certain isotopes in ice cores,[Lockwood] has been able to determine how active the sun has been over thousands of years,” The BBC reports.” Following analysis of the data, Professor Lockwood believes solar activity is now falling more rapidly than at any time in the last 10,000 years.”

Based on these findings, Lockwood argues that there is an increased risk of a Maunder minimum; and a repeat of a “Dalton solar minimum,” which occurred in the early 1800s, is “more likely than not” to happen again.

“He believes that we are already beginning to see a change in our climate — witness the colder winters and poor summers of recent years — and that over the next few decades there could be a slide to a new Maunder minimum,” BBC reports, adding that harsh winters and cooler summers would become more frequent.

Lockwood’s research flies directly in the face of scientists who argue that human activities are causing the planet to heat up, commonly known as global warming. They argue that greenhouse gases, like carbon dioxide, trap heat in the planet, causing the Earth’s surface and oceans to warm.

“It is clear from extensive scientific evidence that the dominant cause of the rapid change in climate of the past half century is human-induced increases in the amount of atmospheric greenhouse gases, including carbon dioxide (CO2), chlorofluorocarbons, methane, and nitrous oxide,” according to the American Physical Society.

However, the globe has not significantly warmed in the last 15 years or so, leading some to criticize previous predictions made by climate scientists.

“[I]n attributing warming to man, they fail to point out that the warming has been small, and totally consistent with there being nothing to be alarmed about,” said Dr. Richard Lindzen of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

and your point is??? Besides that you and the author don't understand science and global warming.

NEWSFLASH Global warming does not mean the Earth's climate is going to be a balmy 72F year round.

what it does mean that increasing the average temperature on the atmosphere a couple of degrees results in more severe weather and changes in climate. Less ice at the Artic allows the circular polar jet stream to dip down into central North America, this cold air mass then meets with warm moist air coming up from the Gulf of Mexico resulting in colder winters, more frequent/stronger tornadoes, hurricanes and snow.

aalways amazes me that people who don't study up or read anything about global warming are the quickest to deny it.

and here I thought the recession was brought about by lenders giving loans to people who shouldn't have qualified, taking those loans bundling them up and selling them as securities thereby absolving themselves of any stake/responsibility in those loans and then taking insurance out that those securities would fail.

nope it was all caused by increasing the minimum wage....who knew
