    Donald, take a trip to Australia. They raised the minimum wage and it did nothing but hurt the poor and middle class. Moderately priced restaurants are now empty because the higher labor costs effected their overall expenses far more than at the high priced restaurants. Result is that the rich were almost unaffected, while the middle class can no longer afford to go out to eat. A further result is that restaurant employment collapsed. Prices across the board went up so the higher wages were lost because of higher costs for everything. In general, the upper class was not impacted, but the standard of living for the poor and middle class went down. Raising the minimum wage is just another veiled attempt at destroying the middle class. Wages can only go up when skills and productivity go up

    BULL I was growing up 50 – 60 years ago. There certainly was a lot of racial inequities, but I never saw a single white person act so blatantly hateful. I know there were those that were, but despite the exaggeration of history we have been exposed to, it was not nearly as bad as it is now.

    So has she been charged with civil rights violations?

    Michael, you are a smart man. Instead of being led by the left, get some statistics. The rate of blacks being killed by police and whites being killed by police is about the same. Actually, the rate for whites is slightly higher. The fact that every single black killing makes headlines for weeks, and white killings are ignored by the media, doesn’t change the truth

    As Christians we need to not judge others, that is up to God. But you cannot be a Christian if you accept behavior that Christ said is a sin. How can you be a Christian and yet decide Jesus was wrong and we know better? We have no business judging, but we also have no business making believe our decision on sin overrides that of Christ.

    Cruz made it clear that Trump and the GOP had to win in November and that it is imperative that people DO NOT sit out the election. He avoided using the word “endorse” for a good reason. Cruz has been a watchdog over the republicans that don’t hold to their principles since he has been in office. A concern about Trump has always been that he did not hold any of his current principles until he started to run for office. Most people believe that Trumps “conversion” is sincere. Cruz understands that we all must do what ever we can to get Trump elected, but he wanted to remain in a position where he can call him out if he drifts back to his democrat establishment roots.

    Not really. The analogy is more like what the writer stated. One (Hillary) is a known quantity that WILL destroy our Constitution. The other is an unknown path that holds promise not to. Anyone with a brain would select the path that at least offers a chance.

    And I don’t want them making bigoted decisions for the company. They should not only have been fired, but sued for lost revenue to cover the estimated losses to their reputation and the boycott.

    Shep is SOOOOO concerned that “a segment of the population” is uncomfortable with the phrase “all lives matter” so it shouldn’t be used.

    Well what about the segment of the population who are uncomfortable with the phrase “Black lives matter”? Shouldn’t that phrase be banned for the same reasons?

    Shep is a full blown socialist. Like all socialists (Hitler included), the people are always broken down into groups, with each group being “preferred” or not by the government.

    DONALD Why should anyone be able to “chose” if they want to destroy another human being for their own convenience? This should disqualify the phony from consideration

    Anyone that diverts the attention away from the killer and blames a tool IS THE PROBLEM

    The best thing we can do to help is to stop diverting away from the real issue and deluding ourselves with “feel good” lies about how it CAN’T be societies fault, it must be the tools fault.

    Gun violence is no different than any other violence. If we want to stop it, we need to address the violent and selfish behaviors, not make believe it is a “guns” fault.

    “The New York Daily News and others were quick to point out that the Western calendar is also rooted in Roman paganism, noting that the months we use correspond to names of gods, such as Janus and Mars. Robertson, 70, made no mention of this.”

    That’s kind of a desperate argument isn’t it” There is a big difference in naming something after someone or something from the past, and hinging all of history on someone’s year of birth. but I guess it will get some fools to parrot it.

    Seriously? Chris Christie? Talk about getting into bed with the establishment.

    I don’t approve of using race to select anyone for any job unless there is a valid reason. In this case, I think a strong conservative Hispanic would help carry a lot of votes. Of course Cruz comes to mind, but there are many others.

    It is not important to “make a case” for Trump. The ONLY thing that needs to be weighed is this – There are likely to be 4 Supreme Court vacancies over the next Presidential term. Who will Hillary pick and who will Trump pick? The entire Constitution and all of our freedoms and rights are at stake. Everything else pales in comparison.

    Three cheers for this company for having the integrity to take a stand.

    Possibly these dimwitted students learned a far more important lesson than they would have during their internship. When you go to someone else’s home, business, country, etc; you respect THEIR rules. It’s not all about YOU.

    Anyone that divides people by race are racists (or socialists)
    Anyone that pits one race against another are racists (or socialists)

    I do not believe that Trump was the best anti-establishment choice, but he DID win. Having won, he is serving a great purpose. Instead of traditional party oriented thinking, America and the world is being clearly divided differently.

    Now we can see, regardless of party, who believes in the elite power structure controlling our lives, and who believes the people should control the politicians.
