Yeah President Obama is all for raising the minimum wage so people can make more to spend more. The GOP still wants people to pick cotton and work the fields for nothing !!

Why Ikea, Gap Are Raising Minimum Wages in U.S.

Look at the shocking video here !!

http://www.bloomberg.com/video/ikea-gap-raise...

Now that home retailer Ikea has announced plans to raise the average, hourly minimum wage at its U.S. stores to $10.76, the pressure is mounting for other big brand businesses to follow suit.

Large companies, from retail to food—as well as many states—have hiked their hourly rate, or are considering such a move.


Gap in February said it would set $9 as the minimum hourly rate for U.S. workers, and raise the minimum to $10 next year. Chipotle Mexican Grill has said an increase to $10 an hour could be absorbed. Starbucks says it would support efforts to lift wages, but hasn't taken a stance on any specific proposal.

Majority of Voters Think the Obama Administration Is Incompetent at Running the Government
July 2, 2014
...
Which brings us to the number that's arguably the actual worst thing in the poll for Obama: "American voters say 54 - 44 percent that the Obama administration is not competent running the government."

Politico's Mike Allen agreed, flagging that number as of most concern to the White House this morning.

This is the second recent poll to give the president or his administration a bad rating on a "competency" question: an earlier NBC/WSJ poll found that just half of Americans believe Obama is a competent leader of the federal government.

Although the poll marked a slight uptick in his overall approval rating to 40 percent, the president didn't fare too well when respondents were asked to rate his performance on a bunch of crucial issues:

* Voters were 40 - 55 percent against his handling of the economy;
* They also were negative on his foreign policy, 37 - 57 percent.
* And on the related issue of terrorism? 44 - 51 percent.
* Same goes for healthcare: 40 - 58 percent against.
* He did better on the environment, with 50 percent of voters approving and 40 percent against.

Besides the childish name calling, here is why I don't understand Lib thinking. We have Obamacare which members of our Congress took great pride in passing it without reading it, that violated established law that was ruled on correctly by the Supreme Court. And we have a company who sells quality products for good prices and treats its employees well. And yet it must be the company and the Supreme Court that Libs believe needs to be punished. Silly me, I would do whatever it takes to help ensure that those of any party that voted for Obamacare are not reelected.

Border Patrol Union Official Under Gag Order, Says No Agents Securing Border
7 Jul 2014

California Border Patrol union representative Ron Zermeno told ABC 10 San Diego that he has been placed under a gag order in an attempt to avoid negative news about the state of the southern border from getting out to the public. Zermeno said that the order was designed to prevent him from saying that no agents will be securing the southern border.

He said,“As long as they send the bodies up there [to Murietta] to be processed, there will be no agents patrolling and that's what the agency doesn't want me to say.”

The order also comes after agents spoke out about the spread of infectious diseases near the border, which, according to ABC 10, they argued the public deserved to know about because it was a danger “like a threat to national security.”

Hillary Clinton:‘Fees have been donated’

Hillary Clinton on Friday said that she has donated all the money she has earned from her public speaking appearances at colleges and universities in the past year and a half to the Clinton Foundation.
“All of the fees have been donated to the Clinton Foundation for it to continue its life-changing and life-saving work,” she told ABC News.“So it goes from a foundation at a university to another foundation.” The Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation is a nonprofit focusing on global issues that was founded by former President Bill Clinton in 2001.

Oops! Rick Perry Completely Implodes Republican Immigration Field Hearing !!!!!!!!!!
One of the big pieces of “news” to come out of Thursday’s Republican Anti-Immigrant Antiques Roadshow was the fact that Governor Rick Perry (R-Texas) wants the National Guard to “secure our border” from the 50,000 children who are streaming across it from Central America, but less reported is Perry’s complete faceplant when Democratic Congressman Filemon Vela (D-Texas) asked him the simplest of questions.
After an hour or so of testimony from Perry, Vela completely hobbled the Republicans’ main talking point on this immigration crisis by asking Perry “If we had a thousand National Guard at our borders, as you propose, how would that have prevented the influx of these unaccompanied children who, for all practical purposes, are surrendering themselves?”
Perry hesitated, then launched into a verbal dance-off with himself.“The power of boots on the ground cannot be overstated,” Perry began, then proceeded to demonstrate that it also can’t really be explained. Instead of describing how the National Guard could repel unaccompanied children from the border, Perry instead went off on several tangents about criminal activity, neighborhood watches, and concluded by saying there would be no influx of children because that’s what he thinks.

Later in the hearing, Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) helped Perry further destroy the Republican narrative on the current immigration crisis when he asked Perry to recall the dates on which the DACA policy and the Trafficking Victims Protection Act (which created special rules for unaccompanied children from non-contiguous countries) were enacted, since these are the policies that are supposedly to blame for drawing these unaccompanied children to our borders, years after the fact. Perry interrupted Swalwell to again insist that the real problem, and the only solution, is National Guard troops on the border.

“During our briefing this morning, we were told that this is not a matter of catching them,” Swalwell said.“These children are running into open arms, so wouldn’t additional border patrol agents only increase the number of open arms that these children are running into?”

“I think I addressed that earlier when I said that when you have the National Guard, when you have a law enforcement effort,” Perry began, before abruptly remembering that he hadn’t actually addressed anything and darting over into a tangent about diplomacy, declaring that Mexico won’t secure its southern border because it doesn’t trust us
