Fast-food companies can afford to pay a living wage - politics It's a mystery to me why some people have no sympathy for the plight of the fast food workers. Yes, it's a good entry level job for the young, but not so good for adults needing to support a family. Unfortunately the good-paying manufacturing jobs have been shipped overseas and replaced by low-paying service jobs with little to no benefits. Many of these workers hold two or three jobs to make ends meet. Some are at retirement age but cannot afford to retire. In order to improve their lot in life they have organized to press for a living wage. The fast food moguls claim their profit margins are too thin to afford this extravagance. If this is true, how did McDonald's CEO rake in $13.8 million last year? In contrast, how is it In-N-Out starts its employees at $10.50 an hour and provides them medical benefits, paid vacations and a 401(k) plan. In Australia McDonald's pays the equivalent of $14.50 an hour. This raised menu items by a mere 70 cents, not double as had been claimed. So it is feasible to raise salaries. Why are some people so deadset against workers getting a living wage, but do not mind a CEO getting $13.8 million a year? The workers are only asking for a fair share of the pie. I don't think this is too much to ask.
Reagan raised debt ceiling, too - politics Concerning all this debt limit nonsense, consider the following: Ronald Reagan raised the debt ceiling 18 times. Yes, 18. He raised taxes 11 times. That's 11 times. You know, the President you are always boasting about and are so proud of. What a great Republican he was. You wanted to put him on Mount Rushmore! He raised the debt ceiling 18 times. You know, Reagan, Ronald Reagan, he raised the debt ceiling 18 times and he raised taxes 11 times. You know, Reagan, Ronald Reagan.
Why are we putting the IRS in charge of Health care? - politics The totally partisan unionized Democrats of the IRS have been very busy lately. They were actively suppressing the voices of political opponents, with denial and harassment of conservative groups, seeking the proper tax status to take part in the political process. They succeeded in helping re-elect Obama, without any consequence for their illegal actions, and continue to silence opposition today. They are recruiting "navigators" from their vast Democrat community organizing groups, who are not subjected to background screening, so even felons may be taking our sensitive data. Since the IRS recently "inadvertently" posted over 100,000 Americans' Social Security numbers on their website, an illegal breach of privacy, it's frightening that we will be forced to give their navigators all of our financial data including social numbers, income, and all asset information, to determine each individual's cost of Obamacare and eligibility for subsidies. The Data Hub will connect seven agencies, including HHS, IRS, DHS, and DOD…which is a mystery why our health and wealth information have any reason to be connected to Homeland Security and the Defense Department! But then, all dictators know that in order to "control the people" you need only get control of health care. Considering that medical records mistakes doubled from 2010-2011, which have already cost some their life, and reports that 80 percent of medical bills contain errors, the "Data Hub" that is months behind schedule is incomplete and unsecured will not only be a hacker's heaven, but may cost many lives in the chaos. It's no surprise that Congress, their staff, unions and the IRS itself have been given waivers and exemptions from Obamacare. What better way to eliminate any opponents, than to control who receives care and/or subsidies? The IRS should stand for Illegal Revolution Soldiers – it's the Alinsky rule.
