<quoted text> Poor Old Barney he is such a fool ! He tries to hide his true location which is Salem Ar by claiming to be in New York. Question for you Mr. Barney if you are in New York just why are you constantly posting here on the Springdale site that pretty much sums you up as a liar and a deceiver?
Hey you know what else....... I don't look a whole Hell of a lot like the former Senator of New York either,...... but there's her picture on my Moniker ..........

Oh, now you've done it! The liberals are screaming at the top of their lungs about income inequality. Thing is, liberals simply don't understand how a minimum wage actually hurts a workforce and not helps them.

Barney, when you site an article, it's always a good idea to read the entire article, and not just cut and paste the parts you like, ignoring the rest.
Same article that you cited also says,
"Analysts reason that workers who in the past have opted against participating in employer coverage see better quality benefits or perhaps a lower cost than health plans available via the government marketplaces.
But some analysts don’t see the $95 penalty in the law’s first year for not signing up for health benefits as “enough of a stick to entice an employee to take either an employer’s medical plan or to purchase insurance through the public health exchanges,” said Thom Mangan, chief executive of United Benefit Advisors, which helps employers with their health benefit programs.
“It will take penalties in the thousands to provide the carrot and stick for an individual to feel the cost/benefit of purchasing insurance over another item whether it be cigarettes, a new car or just to put food on the table,” Mangan added.
Indeed the same article contained that information, which by the way did not a have a thing to do with my point. Had I been attempting to purposely conceal this info. contained in the article I damn sure would have NOT posted a link to the page.

You hardly let the air out of any ones balloon, with with your Fox News story, you are clearly grasping at straws with such ignorance.
Your utopia is crumbling around your ears and I'm the one grasping for straws? With all the withheld numbers about Obamacare, the economy in shambles, real unemployment at 13%, scandal after scandal marring Obama's presidency, and the loss of trust from the American people due to the massive amount of lies from Obama, and I'm ignorant for pointing it out to you? What's worse is that you don't even see it or have chosen to bury your head in the sand.

Who needs minimum wage when you can work a 40 hour week at Wal-Mart and be eligible for their corporate welfare programs like food stamps and Medicaid.

And as far as capitalization, I didn't think it was an actual formal title being bestowed, just recognizing Barney' s superiority in ignorance. But heck, if you want to give him the official title, far be it from me to stand in the way!
King of Ignorance, he shall be from this time forward! Thanks, Redd!!

By the way, of course the entire article had everything to do with your flimsy pick and chose point, you just cut and pasted the part that tickled your ears. You can stammer and sputter and spin things to make yourself appear in control, and that's fine! Of course, none of us believe you and your never-fancy double talk, but if saying it makes you believe it and helps you feel better, then by all means, sputter away!

Now, Barney, just because you ARE the official King of Ignorance (thanks again, Redd) and you so easily believe the liberal loons who predict numbers, and project fuzzy math, you think others don't have the ability to process fact from crystal ball numbers that the White House issues, then retracts, then issues, then retracts.
That's what keeps getting you into trouble, Barney. You just don't know how to think for yourself, and then you get confused between what's been issued and what's been retracted.
Of course, this is what has earned you the title!

Now, Barney, please don't hold it against me that I responded to something obviously written to someone else, or that I enjoyed using some of these funnny and appropriate catch phrases from others that have been posting. I just couldn't help myself, especially being given the title,'King of Ignorance' by whom I thought was your good buddy, Redd.
I declare, I was almost sure that you and Redd were of the same mind, and frankly, you may still be. That Redd can cause ya to pause after reading one of his little ditty' s, and wonder just what the hell he's saying, but he did right good giving you that title. A title that you have earned and one you deserve!
Oh fiddle-de-de. It may not be proper to speak when not spoken to, but I declare, it's just not nearly as much fun.

If you had any doubt that I am the King of ignorance on this thread you should not have,

You see the clamor of my subjects wondering where I am in my absents from this page and 90% of post on this thread are directed at Barney.

Redd was correct, I would not be a King without a kingdom.

And how much more affordable would the goods we buy be if there weren't the enormous burden both those programs put on our society? Will you ever figure out that the costs of goods will ALWAYS increase more than any additional benefit handed out by these two programs or any other handout program? The additional cost passed from the government to the businesses that are forced to pay them have always and will always have a profit added to them before they are passed on to the consumer resulting in the recipients of entitlement programs paying more for goods they buy than "benefits" they are handed. If you pass the added cost to the workers of companies in the form of taxes then result is the same. Employers will eventually have to raise wages in order for their employees to be able to afford to live. The employers will then see an increase in, not only the amount of payroll, but also the amount of matched taxes (SS, federal withholdings, and Medicare) paid by the employer out of their profits. Guess what happens then. Increase in prices along with profit added to those increases. Again, the "benefit" recipients lose. Unfortunately, there are only a VERY few companies that can afford to absorb those increase in costs without going out of business but they won't. Not understanding how business operates, I can see how you don't understand this but your still wrong.
