Well, if they are already here then, using your "logic" a core coalition of international forces have every right to invade the United States and hunt ISIS down. Sovereignty be damned.
And that's another godawful thing Obama brought to us. Obama brings thousands of Islamist terrorists into the United States, and the world has to invade us to kill them.

If the minimum wage went up to $15/Hr, just think how much less tax money would go to food stamps & other assistance programs.
I thought you whiners hated those programs.
In America...everyone, in their own mind is entitled to something...

you think people who suddenly start making $15 an hour will gladly stop accepting food stamps?

In a related Forbes article published four days ago:
The Bureau of Labor Statistics released a significantly weaker than expected August jobs report Friday morning.
Employers added just 142,000 jobs last month, sharply lower than the 225,000 economists were anticipating and the smallest monthly gain of 2014.
Peter Cappelli, a management professor at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School and director of its Center for Human Resources, believed that the numbers are likely to be revised as new data comes in.
Cappelli called the numbers “worrying” as they reflect a downward trend throughout the summer.
Immediately following the news the S&P 500, The Dow Jones Industrial Average and Nasdaq Composite sunk farther into the red following a downward trend seen leading up to the pre-bell release. The indices quickly reversed that momentum trend turning mixed.

It's not a related article dumfk.

And Peter Capelli is an alarmist ahole who most investors ignore.

Sometimes I get too wordy. So I'll simplify the question that was posed before.

What would be the incentive to learn a trade or a skill that's in demand if you can flip burgers for the same income?

Does anyone object to minimum wage being raised to $10 an hour? If so, why?

Polticofact states this comment by Obama is false--
Obama says comment about extremists being a JV team "wasn’t specifically referring to" Islamic State.
On Aug. 25, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest claimed Obama’s comment was being taken out of context and that the "president was not singling out" Islamic State in that interview, but rather Islamic extremist groups in general.
The Washington Post Fact-Checker compared that with the previously unreleased transcript and gave Earnest’s comment four Pinocchios, his worst rating.(For what it’s worth, Remnick told PolitiFact that the Post fact-check "got it right.")
This pretty much leaves no doubt. Obama may not have specifically said Islamic State, but it’s clear he was talking about them. Remnick was referencing events in Syria and Iraq, particularly the takeover of Fallujah, which was conducted by Islamic State, and Obama referred to the group responsible for that as "a JV team."
Our ruling
Obama said his JV comment "wasn’t specifically referring to ISIL." He was not specifically asked about Islamic State, but it’s pretty clear this is the group that was being referenced in the conversation. The transcript backs this up, as do news events from the time of the discussion.
We rate the statement False.
http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/state...
As we all know, this isn't the first time politifact got it wrong. Its off-the-mark conclusions have undermining its credibility. Lately they have had a bad habit of adding two and two and coming up with eight. Sad to see their demise.

Jan 14, 1942:
Roosevelt ushers in Japanese-American internment

On this day in 1942, President Franklin D. Roosevelt issues Presidential Proclamation No. 2537, requiring aliens from World War II-enemy countries--Italy, Germany and Japan--to register with the United States Department of Justice. Registered persons were then issued a Certificate of Identification for Aliens of Enemy Nationality. A follow-up to the Alien Registration Act of 1940, Proclamation No. 2537 facilitated the beginning of full-scale internment of Japanese Americans the following month.

Ostensibly issued in the interest of national security, Proclamation No. 2537 permitted the arrest, detention and internment of enemy aliens who violated restricted areas, such as ports, water treatment plants or even areas prone to brush fires, for the duration of the war. A month later, a reluctant but resigned Roosevelt signed the War Department's blanket Executive Order 9066, which authorized the physical removal of all Japanese Americans into internment camps.

Shows how little you know. For the first time, al-Qaeda disowned an affiliate by "denoucing ISIS and disavowing their actions" in January. ISIS is NOT al-Qaeda.
Al-Qaeda General Command:
“Al-Qaeda announces that it does not link itself with (ISIS)... It is not a branch of the al-Qaeda group, does not have an organizational relationship with it and (al-Qaeda) is not the group responsible for their actions.”
"In December, ISIS overstepped the mark with the assassination of rebel commander Ammar al-Wawi, prompting outrage in insurgent circles. Over the New Year the brutal ISIS killing of Dr. Hussein al-Suleiman, the leader of Ahrar al-Sham, one of the country’s biggest Islamist rebel groups that has links with al-Qaeda, was the final straw. Islamist rebels started to attack ISIS, with more moderate Free Syrian Army (FSA) brigades eventually joining in, and initially were successful in pushing the group out of the Syrian city of Aleppo and some other key rebel-held towns."
http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2014/02...
So al-Qaeda is the good terrorist group? Progressives never stop to think how illogical their comments are. Yes, ISIS split from al-Qaeda over a leadership quarrel. Both are terrorist groups.

If the minimum wage goes up to $15 an the cost of living will just go up the same amount and everybody but the unions and the government would be no better off!!! Where do you think that money is going to come from? You think business owners are just going to gladly give away that money out of the generosity of their heart? Or are they going to raise prices so as to keep the same profit margin? Libtards are SO stupid!!!!
Labor costs do not entail the entire cost of products so how the f*ck would the cost of living go up the same amount.

I am not for a $15/Hr minimum wage but it should be over $10.50/Hr

Yes, that's what the article said and what is being reported. Please tell me that doesn't change the fact that ISIS is recruiting young Americans to fight with them overseas and that's not disturbing in your mind.
You posted the article in response to someone claiming that ISIS exists in the United States. THAT is why I pointed out the fact that your article had nothing to do with ISIS being present in the U.S.

Those who leave the United States and join forces against us will not be returning to the United States unless they are in handcuffs or body bags. That gives me peace of mind.

It is disturbing is that we have "young Americans" living in this great country who are willing to join a barbaric murderous group like ISIS but I'm very confident that our intelligence community knows exactly who they are and what they are doing.

Wrong Dave, Liberals would fight like H** to readjust the poverty thresholds for a family of 4 from 24,000 to 45,000 to keep their Constituents Their Voting Block!! So increasing the Minimum Wage would have very little impact on Poverty!!

Except nobody at McDonald's or Burger King type places 'flip a burger'. They arrive frozen precooked in boxes. All they do is put them in a microwave. About the only thing 'cooked' is french fries and chicken nuggets, which are deep fried.

Yes! There should be no minimum wage. It should be left up to the employer and employee to determine the pay. If the employer pays too little no one will take the job. Unless that is all the person is worth.

What wasn't emphasized was the number of part-time jobs compared to full-time jobs.
There was mention, however, in that article that the labor participation rate is still poor and "more stubborn" as this rate remains higher even as jobs have grown.
That would be what's called a "jobless recovery", wouldn't it?

We already know that ISIS is recruiting Westerners online. A it's faster B. it doesn't involve travel/group meetings ala Amway etc etc. Will add that many who while away their lives online believe whatever they're told__see this thread.

Mosques are the worst place to recruit__think about it dumbazz.

Oh and BTW the trial of American Front leader Marcus Faella began today in Central Florida.
