Statistically speaking, every time minimum wage increases, job losses take place--especially among the black community. The low information voters have no knowledge of this...
The Congressional Budget Office looked at the costs and benefits of minimum wage increase in a report which came out about a month ago.

"Republicans sputtered with outrage when the Congressional Budget Office said that immigration reform would lower the deficit, strengthen Social Security and speed up economic growth. They called for the office to be abolished when it dared to point out that tax cuts raise the deficit or when it highlighted the benefits of health care reform. But now that the budget office has predicted (and exaggerated) the possibility that an increase in the minimum wage might result in a loss of jobs, Republicans think it’s gospel.
...
What Republicans fail to mention is that Tuesday’s report from the budget office, a federal nonpartisan agency, was almost entirely positive about the benefits of raising the minimum wage to $10.10 by 2016, as President Obama and Congressional Democrats have proposed.

More than 16 million low-wage workers, now making as little as $7.25 an hour, would directly benefit from the increase, the report said. Another eight million workers making slightly more than the minimum would probably also get raises, because of the upward “ripple effect” of an increase. That would add $31 billion to the paychecks of families ranging from poverty level to the middle class, significantly increasing their spending power and raising the nation’s economic output and overall income.

In fact, the report said, 900,000 people would be lifted from poverty with a wage increase. The income of those below the poverty line would increase by a total of $5 billion, or 3 percent, at no cost to the federal budget."

"But the report said there could be a cost to the wage increase, and most of the headlines have focused on the possible loss of 500,000 jobs, or about 0.3 percent of total employment. That bears further scrutiny, because, unlike the benefits, the employment estimates have been disputed by a wide variety of nonpartisan economic studies.

What the report actually says is that there is a two-thirds chance that a $10.10 wage would produce job losses in a range from just above zero to one million. The number 500,000 was simply picked as a midpoint.(There is a one-third chance the wage increase would lead to more than a million job losses or actually increase employment.) A range that big is essentially the budget office’s way of saying it doesn’t really know what would happen to employment if the wage goes up, because, as the report says, there is vast uncertainty about how much wages will go up on their own over the next three years, and uncertainty about how employers would react to a higher minimum."

Number of hurricanes reaches 30-year low
4:16 PM 03/20/2014
The “hurricane drought” in the U.S. continues, as last year saw the lowest number of hurricanes since 1982, according to government storm data.
For the 2013 hurricane season — which runs from June 1st to November 30th — thirteen named storms formed in the North Atlantic Ocean, the Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico. Only two of those storms reached hurricane strength, according to the National Hurricane Center.
The National Hurricane Center reports:“BASED ON THE 30-YEAR CLIMATOLOGY… THE AVERAGE LEVEL OF ACTIVITY IN THE BASIN IS 12 NAMED STORMS…6 HURRICANES…AND 3 MAJOR HURRICANES. FOR 2013…THE NUMBER OF NAMED STORMS WAS NEAR AVERAGE…BUT THE NUMBERS OF HURRICANES AND MAJOR HURRICANES WERE WELL BELOW AVERAGE.”
(Capitalization in the original.)
The Center adds:“THERE WERE NO MAJOR HURRICANES IN THE NORTH ATLANTIC BASIN FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE 1994. AND THE NUMBER OF HURRICANES THIS YEAR WAS THE LOWEST SINCE 1982.”
In the wake of Hurricane Sandy in 2012, environmental groups and the Obama administration pushed the notion that “extreme weather” events were evidence that global warming was happening and getting worse.
“We know that the extreme weather events that we’re seeing, the record wildfires, the record droughts, the extreme storms that we’re seeing, the hurricane that we saw with a 1,000-mile diameter that hit the eastern seaboard late October of last year, are precisely what scientists have said would be the cause of global warming and climate change,” Michael Brune, executive director of the Sierra Club said on CNN.

how funny....yes I predicted Romney a win.

had the media spoke about Benghazi and the IRS, and the government snooping into everyone in the globes communications, and after 4 years of unprecedented spending, the economy is moving backwards at rapid clip.

No way the idiot was re-elected.

you like to drink in the news that business is up......but in comparison to all the Obama years of no growth.

Don't know what to say to you.

November 2014 will make the beat down of 2010 election look tiny.

What you take as anger, is my sarcasm pointing out ridicules fantasy.

The absolutely abysmal voter turnout of 2012 won't occur this November.

Prepare yourself for Tea Party to become the GOP. The GOP establishment will be fired along with all the Dems.

Dems can't hide from voting record. Not 1 GOP voted for the unread and epic failure obamacare law.

Not 1 GOP senator or house member is responsible for the current economy.

The do nothing congress, is just not doing what liberals want, and why they were elected.

a pattern is developing, but the pattern is running away from current administration in self preservation, and folk like me are here to remind you about truth not spin.

We do have it right. When was the Assault Weapons Ban passed? Under who's administration did the federal government purchase so much ammo that it created a nationwide shortage? What party was it that had members making suggestions of laws that did limit or stop gun purchases? What is the party leadership of cities and states where they enacted or tried to enact new gun laws?
There are two reasons we still have our guns today: people protesting and our United States Supreme Court......... so far. That could change of course if people don't wise up and keep Democrat presidents out of office.
So they took all your guns? That's fine except for the part where it never happened. In fact, you are so wrong, that I bought a Colt AR-15 when Clinton "took all our guns" years ago. Imagine how stupid the NRA sounds with "they can take my guns when they pry it from my cold dead fingers" considering only an idiot would think the government COULD take all our millions and millions of unregistered guns away and the last two times the right cried about it, nothing happened. Everyone still has all their guns. So I stated that they have NEVER taken all our guns, followed by you telling me I am so wrong that I am 100 percent absolutely correct. I was at the gun shop the other day. One of my Tea Bagger friends told me you can't find ammo anywhere. Then my wife and I walked past a huge bin loaded with bullets like a bulk sale. My wife and I laughed at the difference between the real world and the Tea Bagger world. Here's a hint on the difference. One of them is real and you can see with your eyes. The other is emailed to you each week.

I'm not trying to beat you up on this point. Just noting that our predictions can easily go astray. If you only listen to Fox News and Rush, you might believe that the Tea Party has a majority in this country. I think they are around 25% at most. Political battles aren't fought at the extremes --- they are based on trying to sway those folks in the center. And those folks don't identify with extreme conservatives or liberals. And their memories can be very short.

I always love watching desperate rightwingnuts flounder around from one "moral outrage" to the next.
Imaginary voter fraud, "faked" birth certificates, invisible gun grabbing commies, abortion on demand parties, Obamaphones, the importance of forcing creationism in a public school's science class, Benghazi, Muslim presidents,*gasp* websites having glitches on launch day.
It's almost like these batshitcrazy teabagger cavemen get MORE scared and MORE ignorant with each passing day...

There seem to be relatively few folks that are Topix regulars. They find it easier to keep old, obsolete threads going, rather than create a new one every time the discussion shifts.

I see you're taking comprehension lessons from Canton; don't click the link, just criticize it.
As I did Canton, let me introduce you to hyperlinks. See, these stories (whether you believe them or not) are just reporting what they found. What they do is include these things called hyperlinks, and you can check out the evidence for yourself. But of course, you would first have to read the article which I understand is too difficult for you to do. Perhaps you can get government to do it for you.
Keep rolling your eyes, maybe you'll find a brain back there.

A gun novice I see. For one, nobody sells ammunition in "bins." The sell ammo in boxes or in cases. Secondly, different guns take different ammo. One size does not fit all.
Thirdly, we unexpectedly started to talk about guns, and by dumb luck, you and your wife just happened to be in a gun store the other day. And you call me a liar for telling you the truth about me losing my healthcare insurance????
Nope, flat out a bin full of ammo and it was weeks ago so, so much for your suddenly walked into a gun shop theory. As far as me and guns, started hunting when I was 10. Anyway. I stated that you guys have been crying about the government taking all your guns away for decades. Has the government taken all your guns away? No? Never? Not once? Yah, thought so. We'll add it to the heap of things Conservatives were wrong all along about. Like the climate, taxes, wars, prohibition, health care reform...
