I don't tow the party line like you think I do. Your idea of how I think has been formed by the fact you believe I post every conservative thought on this local forum. The only time I argue politics is under TheRealOldSchool, unless I was commenting on a random topic previously with a different name and forgot to change it back. When you can get your head out of your ass and start having a real conversation with me, you might see my views aren't nearly as far to the right as you think. But as long as you think I'm the one posting every single conservative idea, you'll just be running in circles trying to prove something that isn't true. I've said a million times, parties shouldn't exist. Choosing a side is what has impeded our progress. And as far as religion, I don't even believe anything. So how is it you categorize me with religious fundamentalists?
While I don't agree with everything you've said in this discussion, I agree with this post. You are far from a "right-wing, nut job, Fox News supporter."
Based on your posts, I would assume you fit somewhere between a Centrist & Conservative. Back to the subject at hand, I think minimum wage should be higher than it is but not $11 or $12. Should maybe the government put caps on the high costs of necessities such as health care or food?

Michelle Obama? Viable candidate? That's probably the funniest thing I've heard all year.

Yeah, there's nothing creepy about using another persons name backwards for your user name. Except maybe going so far as to register it!! Even TheRealOldSchool stopped defending you after he noticed the similarities.

He was always the only poster with a Greeley, CO proxy. I remember when he used to post as backwards Sarah. It's all the same mean spirited political postings that does now as backwards Taylor. During election time Taylor joined the forum then the backwards name guy stopped using Sarah's name and became obessessed with Taylor. I see now he's gone as far as too actually register it. I don't see how anyone can think that in itself isn't weird.

What was the funniest thing from last year? Fox News predicting a landslide victory for Romney?

I don't know how they could put a cap on it. Somewhere down the supply chain someone would get hurt so bad it wouldn't be beneficial for them to continue to operate. And besides, this country was built on the basis of a free enterprise system. The problems arise when the government sticks their nose in and starts regulating. What used to be the "American Dream" is starting to fade. Now everyone isn't coming here for the "American Dream". They are coming here because they know our government will make the rich people pay for them. Those low-paying minimum-wage jobs should generally be for people at the very beginning of the career or a part-time worker or somebody in school. As Americans we all have the ability to make a better life. The unfortunate thing is that it is becoming okay not to do so. Do I feel bad for people making minimum wage? No, because they have the ability to get a better life. They have the ability to go to school. And probably for free if they're not making very much. Is it my fault that they're lazy and choose not to do so? Absolutely not.

I predicted an Obama win, so I'm not really concerned with what Fox said. And for the record, the funniest thing last year was probably when politifact said their biggest lie of the year was something that Romney said and it turns out it was the truth.

And for the record, that was Rove that predicted a landslide win. The fact you claim that the whole entire network predicted a landslide Romney win is pretty comical. It was just one person.

The American Dream has become less attainable ever since Corporate America decided to quit worrying about paying their employees a fair share of the profits they helped make. In the meantime, CEO pay has increased from 40 times that of the average worker to more than 400 times that of the average worker. People are working just as hard as ever, they just aren't getting a fair share of the profits they helped generate. Instead, it's being given out to CEO's and other high-level execs.

A cap would probably be impossible. As far as people getting hurt, 1) the workers are already hurting and 2) consumers are hurting. Do you not cringe everytime you pump gas? I do and I make above minimum wage.
I'm wondering, does anyone know how many jobs in Owensboro/Daviess County are even available above $12/hr with or without a degree?

When companies start dividing up the profits in a more fair manner, and people can actually make a living by working, many if the people currently bleeding the system will rejoin the ranks of the employed. When working doesn't pay the bills there's no incentive to work.

And it's no small coincidence that, as union membership numbers have waned, so has the wage levels of the entire workforce.

Just one person? Now that is the funniest thing I've heard from you all day! Of course, you're completely wrong there. Take your pick of the others.... https://www.google.com/search...

I also think this is why smaller businesses cannot afford to pay their employees more if minimum wage was raised. Walmart, for example, could cut the CEO's $16,000/hr wage and give the employees more. Or they could raise their prices by $0.01 and cut out the huge Black Friday markdowns.
Here's the link again showing the minimum wage is much less in comparison with the minimum wage 40-50 years ago.

Ok. You got me. 3 whole people predicted a landslide. Can you tell me how 3 out of however many people they employ, constitutes the whole news channel? Your effort was valiant though. There was more than one person. It was 3. The whole news channel? Not so much.

Yes. Only 3. Because every example of everything ever said on a news channel shows up on the first page of a google result. I'm starting to see why nobody takes you seriously.

I didn't google search. I clicked on your link that you used to provide proof. I'm starting to see why nobody takes you seriously.
