Top Republicans Oppose Obama’s Call To Raise The Minimum Wage
During his State of the Union address last night, President Obama called for raising the minimum wage to $9 an hour, up from its current $7.25, and indexing it to inflation so that it rises as the economy grows. If the increase were to happen, it would give the minimum wage its highest purchasing power since 1981, lifting millions of families above the poverty line.
But top Republicans are already coming out against it. During interviews last night and today, House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) both made clear that they oppose raising the minimum wage, citing its supposed effect on job creation:
RYAN: I think it’s inflationary. I think it actually is counterproductive in many ways. You end up costing job from people who are the bottom rung of the economic ladder. Look, I wish we could just pass a law saying everybody should make more money without any adverse consequences. The problem is you’re costing jobs from those who are just trying to get entry level jobs. The goal ought to be is to get people out of entry level jobs into better jobs, better paying jobs. That’s better education and a growing economy. Those are some of the things he talked about and I don’t think raising minimum wage — and history is very clear about this — doesn’t actually accomplish those goals.
RUBIO: I want to see people making a lot more than $9 an hour in the United States. And the way do you that is through rapid economic growth where people are being paid a lot more than that.$9 is not enough. I think we all would want that. The question is a minimum wage the best way to do it? And history has said the answer is absolutely not. In fact, the impact of minimum wage usually is that businesses hire less people. That’s the impact of it. They’ll just hire less people to do the same amount of work…We have a lot of history to prove that the minimum wage , raising the minimum wage does not grow the middle class.

Mitt's grandfather and grandmother were never Mexican citizens, so his father was a US citizen when born, even if born in Mexico.

Major networks refuse to cover Rand Paul’s tea party response
12:33 AM 02/13/2013
Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul delivered the Tea Party response to President Barack Obama’s State Of The Union Address on Tuesday night — but even if you were watching any of the major television networks, you wouldn’t have been able to see it.
Unlike President Barack Obama’s State Of The Union Address and the official Republican response from Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, Paul’s speech was watchable only through online streaming.
“I speak to you tonight from Washington, D.C.,” Paul said at the beginning of the address.“The state of our economy is tenuous, but our people remain the greatest example of freedom and prosperity the world has ever known.”
The tea party senator then contrasted former President Ronald Reagan’s skeptical view of government with Obama’s worldview.

Plyler v. Doe (1982)
In Plyler v. Doe, the Supreme Court struck down a Texas law prohibiting enrollment of illegal aliens in public school.

Whatever his status under the immigration laws, an alien is a 'person' in any ordinary sense of that term… The undocumented status of these children vel non does not establish a sufficient rational basis for denying them benefits that the State affords other residents."

Hmmm…you're just like Obama, an activist! Albeit a right-wing reactionary paramilitary activist, specifically, a survivalist who encourages (eagerly anticipates? Is that what you consider patriotic?) defensive preparations that have military roots and involve firearms out of an unfounded fear of a societal collapse.

And a conspiracists too, I bet. As Berlet and Lyons said in "Right-Wing Populism in America: Too Close for Comfort. New York: Guilford Press," (it's a book, not a TV show) "Conspiracism is a particular narrative form of scapegoating that frames demonized enemies as part of a vast insidious plot against the common good, while it valorizes the scapegoater as a hero for sounding the alarm. Many conspiracists are delusional and suffer, in varying degrees, from mental illness."

Are you nuts? A child born in the United States does not owe allegiance to any other government, but that of the United States. The 14th Amendment, and the doctrine of Jus Solis, control. Even if the child is born in the United States, to a pregnant mother who's a foreign national, and who goes into labor while vacationing in the United States, the child is still a U.S. Citizen, despite that it could also hold dual citizenship.
Justice Dale wrote:
One can't be "and subject to the jurisdiction, thereof", while holding a citizenship of another nation.
The territorial principle affords the United States to claim in personam jurisdiction over any foreign national, within the boundaries of the United States, or the individual state.

If you can find a case or a federal statute to support your position, I'd like to see it.

Who failed Chicago?

Who failed Chicago?
by Michelle Malkin
Creators Syndicate
Copyright 2013

On Tuesday, President Obama and the First Lady used the State of the Union spotlight to pay tribute to an innocent teenage girl shot and killed by Chicago gang thugs. On Friday, Obama will travel to the Windy City to decry violence and crusade for more gun laws in the town with the strictest gun laws and bloodiest gun-related death tolls in America.

Does the White House really want to open up a national conversation about the state of Chicago? Ok, let’s talk.

Obama, his wife, his campaign strategists, his closest cronies, and his biggest bundlers all hail from Chicago. Senior adviser and former Chicago real estate mogul/city planning commissioner Valerie Jarrett and her old boss, Richard Daley, presided over a massive “Plan for Transformation” in the mid-1990s to rescue taxpayer-subsidized public housing from its bloody hellhole. How’d that work out for you, Chicago?

**********
So, let's see...roughly a dollar per hour more depending on where you live (or $40 more per week BEFORE TAXES) "could mean the difference between groceries or the food bank; rent or eviction; scraping by or finally getting ahead?"
anybody else remember the info that came out and said that all welfare bennies combined equaled $10.00 per hour?

why not make the min wage for WORKING citizens be $10.01 p/hr... at least 1 cent MORE than doing NOTHING?

I also found it 'misleading' that the 'smartest Pres EVER' thinks that a family of four (or more) is to be supported by a SINGLE, MIN WAGE EARNER!

if the average voter is NOT being fed a consistent diet of BS and out right LIES, by BOTH maj Parties, why DO they keep voting for the same bullshitters and LIARS?

I was glad to finally see the father of the recently killed innocent girl in Chicago... I was wondering where HE was in the earlier news videos. maybe if this Pres had made fatherly responsibilities a PRIOROTY from Day One, this girl would STILL be alive?

then, again, he MAY not of gotten re-elected... ask Bill Cosby what kind of reaction he got to speaking out on the same subject.

oops! there's that 'conservative' streak showing out, again.:)

or, maybe the Pres was just being RACIST by making that comment?

what say the resident 'race' experts here?

hurry, hurry, hurry...

They're a bunch of proto-commies hoping to start a socialist paradise. We'll go straight down the toilet. It won't be heaven on earth, it'll be a dog-eat-dog Hell, just like the most of Latin America.
We are indeed a nation of immigrants. But most of the previous groups arrived here without a dime - and weren't given one by Uncle. The new "immigrants" are nothing more that leeches and ticks, here to latch onto Uncle's foolish give-away programs until they bleed us dry. Others earned their own way. This new group are just parasites, no more welcome than the plague or locust.
Get real. Socialism combined with unlimited immigration is a formula for disaster. You might as well take everything you own and set it out on the street. The mob will be there to take it soon enough anyway. That's Obama's plan for America.
Isn't if funny how you people all react the same way when case law shows how stupid your arguments are!!

Tell you what, Barney, why don't you run for President, get elected and inaugurated, then maybe you can do something about it. Better yet; run for congress and revive the [Turd] Tea Party.

Don't have a coronary while responding to my post ok? I'd hate to think what will happen to your 12 children.
