Annoy A Conservative: Use Facts & Logic - politics Did these fools profile Mr. Lane the way G.Z. profiled T.M. I think not. A black youth, walking through a neighborhood, was confronted by a man who felt the youth didn't belong there. Because of the way the youth looked. Three young kids just wanted to kill someone because they were bored. There is no comparison. Trayvon Martin was followed and killed because he looked "suspicious" to George Zimmerman. Christopher Lane was killed because he happened to be running past a house where three boys were "bored." Would anyone walking in the neighborhood have looked suspicious to George Zimmerman? I don't think so. Would anyone running by the house have sufficed to satisfy the boys' urge to shoot someone. I think so. Which murder was racially motivated? The entire story with Trayvon was the COMPLETE LACK OF ACTION by authorities, the implicit assumption that he DESERVED his fate, which EVENTUALLY prompted an outcry from his FAMILY... These three were immediately arrested, have been charged, and they'll do time.
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.
