The Minimum Wage is to LOW

Thanks for the good response. Problems facing our nation need to be discussed openly. I am using a phone so I hope my reply is legible. We have a free market economy and for a capitalistic economy to work there has to be consumption, a lot of people with enough money to spend to fuel our economy. Currently corporations and businesses are making record profits and holding onto those profits they are not returning those dollars in the form of investments and worker wages, they are hoarding those dollars. Of they will not do it voluntarily then the government need to force the re-investment. I to worry about the affect a minimum wage would have on small businesses, but not the larger ones. And there are solutions to that problem. I fail to see how it is a tax increase, it will increase revenue to the treasury if that is what you mean. I strongly someone working hard 40 hours a week trying to a productive member of society having to depend on government assistance to feed themselves. As far as me and my income, much is fixed, but there are times when you have to put the good of the whole over your self interests.  (Sep 17, 2013 | post #3)

Racism still?

Man oh man the above comment has to be the dumbest comment in a thread of ignorance. Presently I’m in St. Louis at Barnes hospital where my wife is undergoing treatment for cancer. I have yet to feel threatened, I eat in a restaurant that is mostly black in patrons and staff and I’ve yet to feel threatened, but rather I’ve felt welcomed. I’m retired from a chemical company after thirty-one years, the first fourteen years I was located in E. St. Louis, IL the worst ghetto in the United States, I was never threaded nor harmed. I live in Missouri on Bull Shoals Lake about twenty-five miles from Mountain Home and I’m embarrassed when I have visitors who have to see the white trash who are so prevalent in our community. And I do mean lazy white trash drinking from the public trough as there only source of sustenance and income come from disability and welfare fraud. Perhaps before we criticize and condemn an entire race of the most part good hard working Americans with dreams and hopes exactly the same as ours well just maybe, just perhaps, we should follow an old adage…”clean up your own backyard before complaining of your neighbor’s.” We in Mountain Home set no example, instead we are the example of laziness, low self esteem and hygiene. For all you bigots out there, and I mean bigots over racists, you might try remembering that before smelling up the aisles of WalMart or Home Depot spouting your words of hate and ignorance.  (Feb 19, 2013 | post #34)

Black invasion?

My father was a WWII vet as well; he spent twenty-six months as a guest of Hitler after his B-17 was shot down. He came to this country as a child from Italy with my grandparents. Makes me sick to my stomach to see Americans, Neo-Nazi’s and their ilk, wearing Nazi uniforms from that period of history complete with their swastika tattoos, a real slap in the face to our parent’s generation, to all Americans for that matter.  (Feb 14, 2013 | post #244)

Wish you had posted it Buckwheat. The only way to isolate and defeat these moronic bigots is to confront them whenever they stick their head out from under the slimy rocks they live under.  (Feb 14, 2013 | post #242)

Black invasion?

I more than understand that! My only child is adopted, a beautiful girl now 29 with such a work ethic and social ethic that that I can only hope that I contributed a small portion to it. As I said she is adopted, she is half Hispanic, and there can be no stronger love between father and daughter than ours. I worry when she visits; I will not let her travel alone, and when she is with friends I strongly advise her not to go into any bars. Thankfully she heeds my warnings, but in all likelihood, like your brother-in-law, they know this already and do not need to be told. It is easy to recognize the bigotry and racism so prevalent in this area when you have experienced it other areas as well as in our own part of the world. She handles it well, she simply states that these people are ignorant and like the dinosaurs they are a doomed and dying species and are just too damn dumb to realize it. She is right!  (Feb 13, 2013 | post #239)

Oh you can bet “GOOGLE” will be getting mega inquiries from the northern region of Arkansas asking “what is anthropology?” Or...“Is it an arm of the NAACP?”  (Feb 13, 2013 | post #237)

Black invasion?

First time posting here. As a resident in a nearby community to Mountain Home for ten years now I am still amazed at the high level of ignorance, bigotry and racism in this area. I’ve have lived in several locations around the United States in my sixty plus years and it still truly amazes me, I’ve seen nothing like it. I truly believe that Anthropologists from various major universities of the United States should located here for a field study.. a study to determine just how so many stupid people could be spawned in one area! I truly hope it is not the water!!  (Feb 13, 2013 | post #235)
