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.
What a child like comeback! My point was that you look ridiculous for denying things that are so obvious. That's why so many forum users make fun of you. Now I guess I'll join the others in realizing that you're not worth replying to any further.

If its so obvious, it would be nice if you could actually provide something that backs up your claim. But I guess that's too much to ask.

Glad it didn't take you long to find out that TheRealOldSchool isn't sharpest crayon in the box. Instead of admitting he's full of crap, he pretends that a Google result only has one page...lol. If he doesn't make himself aware of something, it doesn't exist in his mind.

Thanks! I was wondering why he couldn't figure out that google results have more that one page. Arguing with crazy people like him is pointless. His comments become even more foolish as he'll say anything just to get in the last word.

Ok geniuses. Show me your proof that "Fox News" predicted a landslide. Your proof of 3 people wouldn't cut it on a jury full of 3 year olds.

If your brain can't process that the link provided, along with other search results, have corresponding pages then there's no hope for you anyway. Give this a try! When you're on page 1, you can then go to page 2. When you're on page 2, you can then go to page 3, and so on and so on. Just look where to click and you're all set! Print this out if you can't remember all the steps. Actually doing research before you comment on something is an invaluable tool!

Just ignore whoever keeps posting. They will eventually get bored and move on.

Funny one! Lol! He's an expert at ignoring facts that are presented to him so I don't think he'll have any problems ignoring people that call him out for being full of shit.

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.
I post as taylor backwards because our political views are total opposites. There is no relation to anyone named Sarah, nor is there any evidence I did anything inappropriate. Please quit making false accusations. I registered the name because I was sick and tired of people stealing my name and making false posts.

It's even weirder that you don't find registering people names backwards weird! It seems like a very unhealthy obsession.

and running around accusing people of stalking and making false accusation is not? I posted as "your name here" until people kept stealing it and trying to pass themselves off as my posts. So I took one that I thought would not be stolen, but was wrong on that too. Now what few time I try to post, I get the creepy stalker back making false accusations, always with a different name.

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?
First off, my reply to another poster mentioning you being an example of the GOP/News Corp/Koch brothers mentality does not make the entire post about you. Second, I never accused you of posting every conservative thought on this forum. But, I'm well aware of your habit of accusing posters that disagree with you of being a some sort of a solitary stalker, so I'm assuming that you're only continuing your usual practice of projecting your own paranoid delusions onto others. Finally, the tone of your posts prove to me that no matter what facts are present, you will still live in your own little partisan bubble where baseless speculation become facts. Your constant attempts to sideline discussions with your off topic accusations of calling people stalkers and ignoring facts, show that you're not informed enough to warrant any further dialog. I see that you recently even denied being able read through Google results in order to avoid admitting another poster had proven you wrong. What an amazing sense of denial you possess! Have fun with your other non political user names. I'm sure they can offer more insight to the forum than your political personalities have contributed.

What if minimum wage was based on age? For example, those under 18 would start at $7.25,
18-25 year olds would start at $8.25 and those 26+ would start around $9. The only real issue would be employers firing older employees in order to pay younger/newer employees less - but that already happens today.

The minimum wage should be higher for part time workers, to compensate them for the loss of benefits, and to not motivate companies to hire mostly part time to avoid benefits.

The minimum wage for teenagers should be a fraction of that for adults, because it's hard enough for them to get any jobs at all. What a teenager gets out of a job is mostly experience for better jobs in the future. The wages are really just a bonus over that.

For example:

Below 16,$4 per hour. Each year above 16, add $1 per hour, till it reaches $15 part time, or $12 full time.

That wouldn't seem fair if someone is part time at $15/hr and works 39 hours per week and receives health benefits through a spouse. While a full time employee works 40 hours with no opportunity for overtime and pays for health insurance.

We will all be making next to nothing someday. Keep voting to take away workers rights and we will think minimum wage is a luxury. The chamber is bad for workers.

You're absolutely correct!! Every state wants to brag about being "business friendly" but then wonders why the types of businesses they're attracting are abusing its workers and its environment.

I think raising the minimum wage is a mistake. Teaching a skill set or educating lower skill workers is the only way to truly impact those living in poverty.

Poverty is overtaking everyone - skilled or unskilled. Meanwhile, corporate profits and CEO pay continues to explode. Business will only do as much as they are required to do - nothing more. Doing the "right thing" is no longer a part of corporate culture.

It never was a part of corporate culture.
