And just who is forcing people to work at Walmart?
What happens if the govt forces businesses to pay a "living wage"- whatever the hell that is? Businesses will either cut employees, cut the wages of other employees making more than that, or raise prices of their product/services. CEOs are NOT going to take a pay cut.
Of course I suppose the govt could mandate CEO pay levels as well. After all, if they can dictate minimum pay, there is no reason they can't dictate maximum pay. And not just for CEOs etc, but for EVERY position in EVERY company.
So you wouldn't mind the govt deciding what you should make each year?
Bottom line, if you can't live on $10/hr, then I'd suggest you make yourself worth more to a potential employer, or cut your expenses, or get another job.
So I put actual thought into my posts and the first time you rebut with "What do you want...a million $ per hour?

Now, instead of replying to what I said, you focus on the place of business that I used as an example; Walmart.

I didn't say I work at Walmart but thanks for suggesting I get a job somewhere else. By your own wisDUMB, all Walmart workers should quit to get higher paying jobs. That's helpful. Really smart.

Bottom line: As corporate America continues to raise it's profits while lowering its employees wages, the middle class will become less and less prosperous and will not be able to buy the things corporate America is selling. I guess you're just to obusy making lame excuses to give a ratsass about the reality that is now a less prosperous America.

The Democrats had to rely on the Tea Party as racists argument because the policies of Barack Obama have produced so little to brag about.

Since the Democrat Party has a weak intellectual structure, they could get away with this.

Tea Party types should have said, Fine, we're racists, that still leaves Obama as a lousy president with failed policies.

The current immigration situation is beyond rational. With the huge federal debt, it makes little sense to bring in poorly educated people and then give them benefits. Democrats can not justify their immigration policy beyond the vague statement "immigration is good for the economy". If it were so, they'd be talking up the proof like crazy.
If Obama is GOING to Play the RACE CARD on his OWN Grandmother, ie, "Typical White Person", he certainly would have no problem using it on others.

IRONICALLY, the only election that Obama ever lost was because his opponent played the RACE CARD on him. ha ha

“In a sense, it was ‘the Black Panther against the professor.’ That’s not a knock on Obama; but to run from Hyde Park, this little bastion of academia, this WHITE community in the black South Side — it just seemed odd that he would make that choice as a kind of stepping out.”
==========
You see Obama WOULD NEVER live in a black community----too dangerous. It was easy for Rush to paint Obama as NOT really one of us.

And, Obama is gonna have his hands full again IF Zimmerman is aquitted and no further action is taken by the DOJ.

In the article the Zimmerman case is mentioned. It talks about a white guy and a young African American kid as helping to add to the racism. However, this is not true.

Report: Justice Dept Backed Trayvon Martin Rallies
Wednesday, 10 Jul 2013 05:31 PM
By Tom Topousis

A secretive branch of the U.S. Department of Justice was deployed to Sanford, Fla., in the aftermath of the Trayvon Martin shooting to help organize rallies, including one headlined by the Rev. Al Sharpton, calling for the arrest and prosecution of George Zimmerman.

Records obtained by the watchdog group Judicial Watch, under the Freedom of Information Act, showed that members of the Justice Department's Community Relations Service were sent to Sanford in March and April of 2012 to help manage protests, The Daily Caller reported Wednesday.

The 347 pages of documents obtained from the federal government showed that $5,320 in expenses was claimed by the Community Relations Service for workers assigned to protests and marches in and around Sanford after Zimmerman was accused of shooting Martin.

At a March 31 rally, CRS workers provided technical assistance to the city of Sanford and rally organizers for the event billed as "The March for Trayvon Martin," where civil-rights activist and MSNBC host Sharpton called for Zimmerman's prosecution, according to The Daily Caller.

"These documents detail the extraordinary intervention by the Justice Department in the pressure campaign leading to the prosecution of George Zimmerman," said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton in a statement posted on the watchdog group's website. "My guess is that most Americans would rightly object to taxpayers paying government employees to help organize racially charged demonstrations."

The release of the Justice Department documents came as the defense rested their case in the second-degree murder trial without calling Zimmerman to testify.

According to federal documents obtained by Judicial Watch, the feds spent $674.14 from March 25-27 in Sanford "to work marches, demonstrations and rallies related to the shooting death of an African-American teen by a neighborhood watch captain." Another $1,142.14 was claimed for similar work from March 25-28.

From March 30 to April 1, the CRS staff rang up $892.55 in expenses "to provide support for protest deployment in Florida." Also during that time, the agency claimed another $751.60 in expenses to "provide technical assistance to the city of Sanford, event organizers, and law enforcement agencies for the march and rally on March 31."

CRS filed for $1,307.40 in expenses from April 3-12 "to provide technical assistance, conciliation and onsite mediation during demonstrations planned in Sanford." And from April 11-12, CRS spent $552.35 while in Sanford "to provide technical assistance for the preparation of possible marches and rallies related to the fatal shooting of a 17-year-old African-American male."

The CRS was created under the Civil Rights Act of 1964, The Daily Caller reported. The agency describes its role as the Department of Justice's "peacemaker for community conflicts and tensions arising from differences of race, color, and national origin."

Isn't the MSM also ignoring the fact that Martin was high and looking for a fight. Also, he is racist too. It was Martin that used the racially charged phrase: "Creepy *ss Cr*ck*r"!
It's "ignoring" those things because they're all false, or at least unsupported by any facts. Remarkable how people like you will excuse white racists just about any kind of language, but loudly insist that the scared, resentful remark of a young man being followed for no reason by what appeared to be a white guy is "racist" or "racially charged."

Absolutely nothing wrong with planning for popular demonstrations in regard to a major, newsmaking event. In fact it would be foolish NOT to prepare. Evidently you've confused "preparedness" with "support," for some reason.

Incidentally: Your sources for this are Judicial Watch, the Daily Caller, and Drudge. They are all far right extremist sources, which probably accounts for the high level of distortion here, as well as your confusion.

Not sure why anyone thinks that the CRS is "secretive" either, unless it's due to right wing paranoia. Here's their page on the official DOJ website:

http://www.justice.gov/crs/

And this is what they do:

"The Community Relations Service is the Department's "peacemaker" for community conflicts and tensions arising from differences of race, color, and national origin. Created by the Civil Rights Act of 1964, CRS is the only Federal agency dedicated to assist State and local units of government, private and public organizations, and community groups with preventing and resolving racial and ethnic tensions, incidents, and civil disorders, and in restoring racial stability and harmony."

Again, I'm calling the report by Drudge/Daily Caller/Judicial Watch another example of right wing paranoia and distortion. Refute that claim if you can.

If I were as paranoid as the far right is, I suppose I could claim that your fear and hatred of DOJ/CRS arises out of your desire for a massive racial confrontation in the wake of the Martin/Zimmerman case, and that peacemaking is the LAST thing the right wants.

But fortunately, I'm not that crazy.:)

This is a common practice when it is a white on black - you did not see this when it was OJ and Nichole. You did not see race riots in the streets when it was OJ and Nichole. The DOJ HAS A DOUBLE STANDARD AND IT IS MY TAX DOLLAR PAYING FOR THIS BS. If you do it for one then you should do it for BOTH. You can call it what you want but as you can see it is RACIST. I do not have confusion - you can not face the TRUTH. I think the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT SHOULD KEEP THEIR NOSE OUT OF THIS.

Bottom line-

Forcing businesses to pay a certain wage won't fix the problem.

If you can't make a living on what you currently earn, then make yourself worth more to your current employer or another employer.

Btw, if America is "less prosperous" then why is it more people have cars & computers & cell phones & flat screen tvs etc, than ever before? If people FEEL less prosperous, maybe they need to look at what they're wasting their money on.
