So, you don't like the concept of a republic. If you need any proof is your ignorance, just read your last post, then explain to us how the development of republics in the world's evolution of governmental systems was an advancement beyond totalitarian dictatorships with unshared power.

Consumer Financial Protection Bureau officials are seeking to monitor four out of every five U.S. consumer credit card transactions this year — up to 42 billion transactions – through a controversial data-mining program, according to documents obtained by the Washington Examiner.

A CFPB strategic planning document for fiscal years 2013-17 describes the “markets monitoring” program through which officials aim to monitor 80 percent of all credit card transactions in 2013.

The U.S. Census Bureau reports that 1.16 billion consumer credit cards were in use in 2012 for an estimated 52.6 billion transactions. If CFPB officials reach their stated "performance goal," they would collect data on 42 billion transactions made with 933 million credit cards used by American consumers.

In addition, CFPB officials hope to monitor up to 95 percent of all mortgage transactions, according to the planning document.

“This is one step closer to a Big Brother form of government where they know everything about us,” said Rep. Sean Duffy, R-Wis.

At a Wednesday hearing before the House Financial Services Committee chaired by Rep. Jeb Hensarling, R-Texas, CFPB Director Richard Cordray defended the data-mining practice and said his agency is monitoring credit card usage at 110 banks, including Morgan Chase, Bank of America, Capital One, Discover and American Express.

Secretary of State John Kerry's negotiations with the Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov got off to a rocky start Thursday, with the Russian mocking Kerry right at the outset.

"They got off to a really bad start yesterday --- partly because of the Putin op-ed and partly because Kerry in the opening remarks spoke at length --- and I mean at length --- compared to the unprepared few welcoming comments from the Russian counterpart," NBC News foreign correspondent Andrea Mitchell said on "Morning Joe."

"And then the Russian minister said at the end, very tartly,'Sometimes diplomacy demands silence.'"

<quoted text>So..... which drones drop bombs son?
Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVS), also known as drones, are aircraft either controlled by ‘pilots’ from the ground or increasingly, autonomously following a pre-programmed mission.(While there are dozens of different types of drones, they basically fall into two categories: those that are used for reconnaissance and surveillance purposes and those that are armed with missiles and bombs. The

use of drones has grown quickly in recent years because unlike manned aircraft they can stay aloft for many hours (Zephyr a British drone under development has just broken the world record by flying for over 82 hours nonstop); they are much cheaper than military aircraft and they are flown remotely so there is no danger to the flight crew.

While the British and US Reaper and Predator drones are physically in Afghanistan and Iraq, control is via satellite from Nellis and Creech USAF base outside Las Vegas, Nevada. Ground crews launch drones from the conflict zone, then operation is handed over to controllers at video screens in specially designed trailers in the Nevada desert. One person ‘flies’ the drone, another operates and monitors the cameras and sensors, while a third person is in contact with the “customers”, ground troops and commanders in the war zone. While armed drones were first used in the Balkans war, their use has dramatically escalated in Afghanistan, Iraq and in the CIA’s undeclared war in Pakistan.

Don't ever call anyone an idiot again.
According to an MSNBC report:
According to the Bureau of Investigative Journalism, the Obama administration has launched 293 drone attacks in Pakistan alone, as compared to 52 strikes under the Bush administration. The bureau estimates that between 2,565 and 3,329 people have been killed, among whom 474 to 884 were civilians. However, distinguishing militants from civilians in the drone war is notoriously difficult. According to The New York Times' sources, the administration "in effect counts all military-age males in a strike zone as combatants...unless there is explicit intelligence posthumously proving them innocent."
"Living Under Drones," a book written by Sarah Knuckey, a professor in the NYU School of Law's Global Justice Clinic, she and her co-authors interviewed 69 "experiential victims" (people whose lives had been directly affected by drone strikes). The people of that region "have a constant fear that they'll be hit, even though they know they're civilians."
"There's a pervasive fear for people every second of the day," she said. "It has a significant mental health impact for people living there."
Try and imagine hearing drones hovering over your house any time of the day or night. You can't because you're a liberal.
That's some real funny sht babe__what sort of noise do drones make day and night?

Lets go to the root of the problem. Inequality of our labors productivity distributions.
Price of Inequality is far more expensive to one and all. Inequality properly addressed, that would benefit, yes even the lone hermit in the woods, to his majesty on the throne, if inequality were to be more justified in its distributions.
Now I will provide a video chart which may be more helpful in comprehending inequality as it is presently exist within the USA. We take care of that problem and the might of the USA would be undisputable through out the world and its Free Markets.
Yes even here in the USA, Austerity has taken its toll. Diminishing our strengths to compete effectively, on the Free Markets Of the World. video chart USA wealth Distributions..
Without inequality of outcomes, there is no incentive to work or produce and society fails.

Do you honestly believe that all salaries would not increase as the minimum wage increases, leaving those beginner employees exactly where they were before?
If you increase the minimum wage to $15, how much do you pay the guy now earning $15/hour, given that he currently earns roughly twice the minimum wage?
There would be some reverberations at the lower levels but it would dampen quickly.

You say beginning employees as if they all get promotions. A lot of big box stores depend on paying a sizable portion on their workers minimum wage. They would not survive if all their minim wage workers stayed on & got raises.

The entire problem with the minimum wage is that it has not kept up with inflation.

In my opinion, you get what you pay for. A bunch of people working while they are seeking better paying jobs & who don't have any skin in the well being of your company. The turnover has to be huge.
