I’m all about seeing people get paid livable wages. I wrote an entire book on the subject. But fast food jobs should be entry level positions for high school kids unless you intend to work your way into management. As an adult, if your career aspirations begin, and end, with entry level fast food work, you don’t deserve more than poverty level wages.

This is why lawyers are universally despised.

Businesses need to get back to worrying about providing business services and get the hell out of politics!
Wish it was that simple. But you know they can't even run a business these days (legally). Unless the Gv is in their case. Since Gv at ever level equals politics.

She says she accepts “full responsibility” but still claims she did nothing wrong. Typical political double-speak at it’s worst.

So we throw public officials in jail now for not following federal law. Great! Start cranking out the warrants for all the public officials running sanctuary cities. Hope we’ve got enough cells to hold them all.

So when are federal judges going to start issuing arrest warrants for all the government officials that are violating federal immigration laws in sanctuary cities. Liberal double standards in this country are sickening.

Still can’t believe all this is happening in my old hometown. I was actually a southwest suburban kid but spent a lot of time in the city and the majority the places these senseless shootings are occurring were nice, quiet, middle-class neighborhoods back then.
This is what happens when the Gubmint tries to "deconcentrate poverty" by buying up houses and using them for Section 8 rentals. I know how you feel. I grew up in a very nice area in my hometown, solidly middle class. The city bought up a bunch of houses and used them for Section 8 rentals when they closed a couple of the housing projects downtown, and all the crime and violence moved in with them. The street where I used to live has turned into the hood, there are shootings and robberies almost every day now. I don't even drive through that section of town anymore, because it's too dangerous. Very sad.
Looks-like THE [D]PROGS are in full control! Only their CRIMMINAL-O'BUDDIES HAVE GUNZ!!

Definitely a step in the right direction. Even some liberal states appear to be fed up with all this far left over reach

We need more fearless politicians like this guy. Most Republicans are cowering somewhere in a corner, scared to death that someone from the left or in the media will call them a racist.

I’m not sure what’s funnier in this article, the fact that someone actually believes Obama has done “reasonably well” in his second term, or the fact that some people still actually refer to Powell as a Republican.

How come the white students protesting Dr. Carson aren’t being accused of being racists? Isn’t that the left’s automatic response every time a group of white people disagree with President Obama?

This is what happens when laws are passed but not read!
I agree. "We need to pass this bill so that YOU can find out what is in it."
Well, it is not going to nearly as great as Nancy thought: Surprise!!

From the White House and the halls of Congress, all the way down to the small town mayor’s offices, the number one priority always seems to be to find more and more ways to take money away from the Average Joe on the street struggling to make ends meet.

If John McCain attacked the opposition half as hard as he does his own party, we might be calling him Mr. President right now instead of traitor.

So do you think the Democrats will denounce this group as “dangerous” the same way they do the Tea Party?
All the "cute" little Pee Cee things that "some people" such as Al $harpton, Je$$ie Jack$on, the genius Hank Johnson, Shiela Jackson Lee, and the rest of the CBC rant about will not be changed by demonizing a word or removing it from the dictionary. They keep changing the nomenclature with which they want to be identified. In my lifetime, it has gone from from "Colored" to "Black" to "African-American. But they can prefer the names "Buicks" or "Jeeps" to refer to themselves and the meaning of the banned word or words will still be clear until they stop seeking a separate identity, standards, mores, and morals from the rest of society. When they all work towards being AMERICANS, all racism will dissapear.
But with the happenings like Chicago and the Iowa State Fair, it looks as if they are working hard to preserve every bad name that was ever spoken.

I used to shop at this mall all the time when I was a teenager growing up in the Chicago suburbs. It was no more than a 20 minute drive from my house and in a really nice neighborhood right at the edge of the city’s westside border with the southwest suburbs. Our parents would drop us off on a Saturday morning and we would spend most of the day there. Never any trouble, never anything to be afraid of. We’d hang in the mall for a while, then catch a movie or do a little bowling, grab some lunch, then call our parents to come pick us back up. I don’t know what that once great city is turning into, but I’m sure glad I don’t live there anymore!

This is the price you pay for worrying about being too politically correct.
