Translation: Rick still thinks he has an ounce of political and social relevancy. How do people like him function without having a real job?

I’m watching $15 being rolled out right in front of me. As with other dire warnings from the right about increasing the minimum wage, their predictions are again dead wrong. And the right’s fixation of fast food workers shows that they again fail to understand the issue at its very core…..
Spqr you are the one who is dead wrong. When you raise the minimum wage, businesses cut back or find alternatives. This is escalating the move to technology and remote ordering, which will lead to less low wage employment. I know people in the fast food industry and they are now moving full steam to automation. So what is the issue???? 4.3% or .043 of the population earns the minimum wage, so 95.70% are ALREADY PAID MORE THAN THE MINIMUM. If you work, you will earn above the minimum wage, or you should go back and learn to work , and try again.
You are SO wrong, I can’t even begin to make you understand, if you don’t already. COMPETITION is what FUELS an economy. Without that, everything becomes THE SAME. THINK ABOUT THAT. That is called SOCIALISM – the same, the same the same AND not only that, the same will get you NOTHING. WHY? Socialism always follow Capitalism BECAUSE of increased regulations on businesses, ETC.. Businesses compete and if they cannot compete because of massive regulations, which prevents them from competing in a free market, socialism ends up taking over after the businesses close.
YOU REALLY NEED TO THINK OF THE REPERCUSSION OF DEMANDING MORE MONEY THAT ISN’T SUPPORTED IN THAT MARKET. Either the business will lay off more people to give you that extra money and/or they will increase prices on the products they sell AND consumers will go elsewhere. YOU CANNOT FORCE CONSUMERS TO BUY A PRODUCT IF IT IS OVERPRICED unless govt forces them to, THEN THAT BECOMES SOCIALIST MARXISM.
You really need to read HISTORY and take a business class and UNDERSTAND HOW IT ALL WORKS. The rich are rich because THEY PROFIT. Without that profit the business cannot offer new jobs. W/o new jobs, there are no taxes for services.
CAPITALISM IS THE ONLY FREEDOM MAN SHOULD HAVE IN THE BUSINESS WORLD. Crony capitalism is not GOOD. That is what most people hate, and so do I, but regular Capitalism IS GOOD AND BENEFICIAL NO MATTER WHAT. Everyone wins. Socialism is when no one wins anything, except govt.
***** I’m watching $15 being rolled out right in front of me.*****
$15?? You mean per day?? Okay, that seems fair to me.

utopiabuster: You mustn’t put any real effort into thinking your non-face saving word salads are working.
 May 24, 2016 at 8:38pm
Utopia: You implied atheist, which leads to the logical conclusion that you think the Nazis were atheist, which is not true. See how that whole logic thing works? Or are you just backpedaling because you just had your balloon busted and trying miserably to save face?
 May 24, 2016 at 8:32pm
4truth2all: That’s because 2000 years of continual doomsday talk is so mockable.
May 24, 2016 at 6:21pm
It’s another from of Doomsday Fetishism. Learning, as a basic concept does not apply.
 May 24, 2016 at 6:17pm
Support of Israel is now part of the conservative base’s mantra due to its importance for the end of the world. Again we see the Doomsday Fetishists at work. The conservative leaders use this as a wedge issue while in complete denial of their historic anti-semitism while accusing liberals of anti-semitism if they criticize Israel. The funny part being that modern American liberalism is actually significantly a product of American Jewish Intellectualism. These are facts……
 May 24, 2016 at 6:11pm
utopiabuster: Wrong again. For example, Auschwitz was run by a devout Christian and literally a former choir boy. Oh, and Hitler was a choir boy as well. The Holocaust was the end result of centuries of anti-semitism propagated by the European church both before and after the reformation. What rock do you have to live under to not know these things?
 May 24, 2016 at 6:00pm
Again, assuming atheism is a stupid conclusion to draw.
 May 24, 2016 at 5:59pm
Same argument I’ve been hearing for 40+ years.
[-2] May 24, 2016 at 5:58pm
And why is a definition of atheism applicable here? If you are assuming I’m an atheist you’ve just jumped to a very stupid conclusion.
 May 24, 2016 at 3:18pm
Blah blah doomsday fetishism blah……
 May 24, 2016 at 3:16pm
So, when NONE of this doomsday fetishists nonsense actually takes place in the real world, will you all realize that these kind of relentless and constant predictions are 100% useless and get a life?
Harold Camping's followers are still saying the end is any day now, despite incorrectly predicting the end would come on September 4, 1994. And May 21, 2011. And October 11, 2011. And October 7, 2015. Next predicted end time is May 20, 2018.
Clearly some folks will persist in these beliefs despite consistent disappointment and even the death of their leader (Camping died in 2013).
Yes, but when it ALL comes true, will you change YOUR tune? Of course you will -- but, alas, it will be too late for you. Repent now, and save your eternal soul, BEFORE it's too late.
Yea, kinda like the atheist prediction they will eventually make a significant contribution to civilization sometime in the near past or one of the many possible futures they predict might happen due to their productive nihilism.
The belief that there was nothing, and nothing happened to nothing, and then nothing magically exploded for no reason, creating everything, Then a bunch of everything magically rearranged
itself for no reason what so ever into self replicating bits, which turned into dinosaurs.
Makes perfect sense.
Well if none of this stuff happens ,when I die I will go where ever you go when you die.
If it does happen I will not go where you will go.
I would rather be me than you.
This doomsday fetishists "nonsense" is already taking place all around you, you're just too blind and too willfully ignorant to see what's going on.

Yes “witch hunter.” Or have you not been paying attention to Chaffetz and his methods?
[-5] May 24, 2016 at 12:42pm
Yet another in and endless stream of lies of omission from the Beckains. The Senate is making no effort to take this matter up. Why? Because even McConnell know that Chaffetz is a blow-hard, useless witch hunter.
I guess truth means little to you. I guess honor means little to you. I guess character means little to you. You summed up your character (or should I say, lack thereof) quite well in those limited words.
Yet another in an endless stream of ignorance from the party of the retarded.
Until the house impeaches, the senate can't take this up. Just answered your question. My answer is true. Yours is that of a blow-hard witch hunter.
[-3] May 23, 2016 at 10:32pm
So, when absolutely NONE of this actually happens, will you all finally realize that you’re all a bunch of mindless crazies driven only by their irrational fears and that Beck is a FRAUD who, like any other Mormon prophet, HAS PREDICTED NOTHING?
Failure is not in finishing second or even failing,
failure is in not even trying.
Do you think any of them were fibbing?

You must have missed that whole “cold war over, we won” thing.
May 23, 2016 at 3:53pm
The UN treaty was about import and export controls, not about handgun banning. Try reading it instead of believing everything you hear on Hate Radio. And “secret recording” had zero credibility. Even if they wanted to ban firearms in the US, it’s a totally logistically impossibility. You are misinformed and your paranoia is fueled by misinformation.
[-2] May 23, 2016 at 2:11pm
Remember that time Obama tried to take away all of you guns? ME NEITHER! Meaning: NO ONE is going to take away your guns. You’re all being played the fool by Trump and the NRA.
Obama signed a handgun ban agreement with the UN, if the Hildabeast gets in office, she will implement it! Here in her own words,(SECRET RECORDING) Clinton saying the SUPREME COURT IS WRONG ON THE SECOND AMENDMENT AND SHE WILL DO EVERYTHING SHE CAN TO BAN FIREARMS IN AMERICA! LIARS ABOUND IN THE HILLARY COVEN!
No, our government would never do what Australia or the soviets or Pol Pot, Ho Chi Minh, Germany and many other countries. Ha!
Every new rule and restriction is a step in the direction of a total ban. It’s death by 1000 papercuts. Look at history. In the 30s they put silencers and automatic weapons and many other types under NFA control. Then in 68 they came back for another bite at the apple and tightened the rules again. In 86 the banned all new automatic weapons and importation of many others and tightened the rules again. In 94 they tried the assault weapon ban which did nothing to stop crime but stopped lawful owners based on cosmetic features and country of origin. Luckily that one reversed after 10 yrs but it almost didnt. Now they are trying to pass it again along with ammo restrictions and registration and background checks none of which stop criminals only lawful owners. I didn’t even mention all the unsuccessful attempts that have been tried.so yes no one has come out with a 100% all encompassing ban…yet. only because it won’t pass but they are playing a game of inches. An inch here with a state law,another few inches with a new fed rule,another few more inches with a couple more state rules,a few more inches with a few liberal judges in the supreme and federal courts and eventually one day we wake up and it’s Australia gun control in america. But wait how did that happen no one tried to ban all the guns… you’re right… death by 1000 papercuts…
