I am not for a $15/Hr minimum wage but it should be over $10.50/Hr
inflating wages will inflate all costs......

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.
Oh, yea, sure. Like employees wouldn't exploit workers. If you believe we wouldn't have a return to sweatshops and factories paying pennies, you are a fool.

You're not going anywhere, so how can I be in your way? Your problem is, I'm going somewhere, and you wasted every opportunity you had and you're stuck in a worthless existence.
By the way, Obama is a communist. I hate communism. Obama is an Islamist. I hate what Islamist teach people they should do. Obama is an enemy of the United States of America. I am a citizen of the United States of America... which is another difference between Obama and me.
Wrong idiot, you are not a citizen, you are a paranoid obsessed fanatical out of control midget. Any one that actually hates an wishes harm to our president is first of all a moron with absolutely no connection to being a patriot. You are a clueless hater that should be deported along with your mail order Russian bimbo. It fanatics like you that will destroy this nation. You and liars like you are scum bags and not worthy of even being called an American. I spit on your stinky carcus you lowlife maggot.

Kinda funny that these Obama haters haven't come to grips with the FACT that he has kept us safe far better than the two dumb war mongering fools before him. We all should be grateful that Obama is in charge at these troubled times as no doubt if the Republicans were we would be involved in 2-3 more wars and quite possible a nuclear war with Russia that no one would be the winner.

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.
Libs like the ACLU and progressives want to make sure that no one is "profiled" or watched unless you are Conservative or in the Tea Party.

Boston bombers’ mosque tied to ISIS
9/7/14

When it was revealed that the Boston Marathon bombers attended a Cambridge, MA, mosque, its leaders were quick to disavow their actions. Elder brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s ideology was not their own, the leaders of the Islamic Society mosque claimed. In fact, he was admonished for an extremist outburst he made during 1 sermon. So, 1 crackpot in a congregation. Who can blame the mosque?

But what about 8 — including a prominent member of ISIS?

As it turns out, worshippers at the Islamic Society have included:
* Abdurahman Alamoudi, the mosque’s founder and first president, who in 2004 was sentenced to 23 yrs in prison for plotting terrorism. In 2005, the Treasury Dept issued a statement saying Alamoudi raised money for al Qaeda in the US
* Aafia Siddiqui, an MIT scientist-turned-al Qaeda agent, who in 2010 was sentenced to 86 yrs in prison for planning a NY chemical attack. Known as “Lady al Qaeda,” she is related to 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammed. ISIS has tried to trade her release for journalist hostages.
* Tarek Mehanna, who in 2012 got 17 yrs in prison for conspiring to use automatic weapons to murder shoppers in a suburban Boston mall.
* Yusuf al-Qaradawi, a mosque trustee and Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood leader banned from the US after issuing a fatwa that called for the killing of US soldiers.
* Jamal Badawi, another former trustee who in 2007 was named an unindicted co-conspirator in a plan to funnel more than $12M to Palestinian suicide bombers.

Now it can be revealed that another regular worshipper at the Islamic Society mosque was Ahmad Abousamra, who is now the top propagandist for ISIS. Abousamra’s father, a prominent dr, even sat on the board of directors of the Muslim organization that runs the mosque. He stepped down after the FBI began questioning his son.

The FBI suspects Abousamra now operates ISIS’s sophisticated media wing promoting the group’s beheadings & other atrocities through slick videos posted on the Internet. The brutally effective English-language propaganda campaign has helped attract thousands of Western jihadists, including at least 300 Americans.

The FBI says Abousamra traveled to Pakistan & Yemen to train to kill Americans while enrolled at Boston colleges. He justified murdering civilians because “they paid taxes to support the government & were kufar [nonbelievers],” Boston FBI Agent A. Nambu testified in an affidavit.

Another agent, H.Williams, says Abousamra, who has a $50K bounty on his head, was inspired by the 9/11 attacks and, in fact,“celebrated it.”

A federal indictment says he even plotted to randomly gun down shoppers, then emergency responders, in a Boston mall. But when he couldn’t obtain the automatic weapons for the attack, he abandoned the plan & moved to Syria, where he could enter Iraq and kill US soldiers as part of “violent jihad.”

Where did he learn his views about Islam and jihad? The mosque has hosted pro-jihad speakers & has stocked its library with classic jihadi texts — including writings by Osama bin Laden mentor Syed Qutb.

And Islamic Society leaders have openly defended their worshippers convicted of terrorism — including Siddiqui & Mehanna — despite overwhelming evidence against them. At their hearings & trials, officials have sought their release or lenient sentences. They have also held fundraisers & rallies for the terrorists.

Really? You believe that someone would rather flip burgers than learn a trade? People quit high paying jobs every day to take lower paying, more self-satisfying positions. Ever hear of self-esteem?
That said, there was a time when the minimum wage was raised every year to keep ahead of inflation. That really is the answer.
Fact is, in 2007 the minimum wage was increased by 70 cents an hour...the first increase in TEN years. In 2008, the minimum wage was increased by another 70 cents the last 70 cent raise came in 2009. If we had continued to raise the rate by 70 cents each year, the mimimum wage would now be $10.75 and people might be claiming that as fair.
However, past performance is a predictor of future performance and employees know if they don't get their $15.00 now, the next raise me be another ten years down the road. Add that $7.00 to the current $7.25 and you see where they are going with this. IMO, we really should raise it to $10.75 an hour with a provision for an automatic 70 cent increase every year thereafter. That will solve a lot of problems.
Gee now what happened in 2007 and 2008? HMMMMMMM!!! Something happened around that time but it seems to have slipped my mind!!!!
