No one would apply for the same jobs that weren't as competitive pay-wise as other jobs. Businesses would have to continually increase pay wages to be competitive and increase prices to pay for those higher wages or go out of business altogether.
Social Security is here to stay whether we like it or not. It was the Democrats brain child just like Obamacare and it's much harder for the government to take away than to give.
Look at Greece.
So your answer is that you don't believe in the free market, correct?

Here's an anecdote for ya...
I met a 80 year old woman in Turkey who never set foot in a hospital...
Her son was my landlord...every time I bumped into her she was hollering 'toprak...toprak...."
Finally I looked it up in my handy-dandy
it means 'earth'
She was telling me she was ready to die...
So?
This broke ass UN-educated woman who never had a dental exam was able to prepare herself for death....
and Americans can't buy some 8 dollar BC pills without having to tax someone to provide it...
Your sht anecdote actually topped Flacks for stupidity.

Women's health care extends far beyond an $8 supply of BC pills.

My neighbors daughter had an ovarian cyst surgically removed recently__it was the size of a grapefruit, these surgeries are common.

But you just go ahead with the RushBo line and continue to look silly.

You better sit down.

December 26, 2013 - The latest CNN/ORC poll gives Republicans a 49-44 advantage over Democrats on the “generic” congressional ballot, when respondents are asked which party they favor in the 2014 midterm elections.

That’s a 13-point swing from two months ago.

Nowhere in the Constitution is there any mention of the "validity of religion in the public arena and society" as being "necessarily limited."
Progressive secularism intends to silence any expression of "freedom of religion" which IS in the Constitution - and primarily Christians' expression of "freedom of religion".
When progressive secularists publicly state people of faith haven't "evolved" yet, that's the part about being superior,
You actually negated your own argument in your first sentence by reiterating the definition of secularism - "rejection or exclusion of religion and religious considerations." That's also called intolerance.

Sadly enough, it only means we're still the Dumb and Dumber United States of America.
You can't admire someone you didn't trust only a month ago.
Last month, 53% of Americans thought the president was not honest according to a CNN/ORC poll and only four out of 10 thought Obama could manage the federal government effectively.
Moreover, fifty-six percent of the public last month said he is not a person they “admire” and not agreeable on issues concerning the country.
http://www.msnbc.com/morning-joe/obamas-trust...
So, as usual, a lot of people are still really confused in this country.
You also can't admire someone whose disapproval rating is 49% with only 42% approving and 56% disapproving of his signature law with only 40% approving.
http://www.gallup.com/poll/113980/Gallup-Dail...
http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/lates...
So what's there to admire if the majority don't approve of his job performance as president, don't trust him and don't approve of his legacy law?
Public trusts the republican house even less!

Second term presidents do not run for reelection.

It's the music...

"The study sample consisted of 775 visitors of dance events, clubs and rock festivals in Belgium.....

Respondents who used illegal drugs were 2.5 times more likely to report that they prefer dance music. Goa party visitors were nearly 5 times more likely to use illegal drugs. For those who reported visiting clubs, the odds of using illegal drugs were nearly 2 times higher."
