“These employers do pay minimum wage, but they do not have to. They can choose to pay far above that and provide benefits. We would not have to raise minimum wage, nor would this be a discussion if merely choose to ignore current minimum wage recommendations and paid their employees better. It's a suggestion, not the upper limit.”
“You are kidding me right? Scientist say...hmm and who funded this nonsense? Oh Please...yes many factors caused eh collapse..but there had already been lots of research done to verify many died of lead poisoning...sad and pathetic!”
“Because it would be Unconstitutional to do so, no matter how much you disagree with them...”

“because the constitution. If they refuse to give them a permit, they sue the town/city ... they have done it hundreds of times and they have made millions of dollars over the years.
It is harder for them to make money suing municipalities now that the supreme court ruled in their favor. When people sue WBC and lose, they still get court costs and since most of them are lawyers the family gets to keep all the money.
It is and has always been nothing but a scam Fred started the 'church' after he was disbarred as revenge so that he could get out of paying taxes and he put most of his 8 kids through law school for the same reason.
Some people have paid them NOT to picket the funeral of a family member, so that is another way the scam works.
The BBC did a documentary on them a long time ago and back then they had already made millions, no telling how much they have made over the years.”
“Lets do some Math....8x40=320....320x4=1280. Even if the minimum is a few dollars more that is not anywhere near enough to live on. This is an example of corporations assuming we as parents, relatives and a society are willing to cover the rest of the expenses required for living. Well I don't! I expect the jobs to pay for those necessities. That is why we work for a living. To make enough to live on. It is not meant to be a charity.”

“Minimum-wage jobs are designed to be entry-level jobs, not careers. If you're satisfied to work at an entry-level job for your entire working-life, don't blame your employer, blame yourself. Otherwise, get off your pampered backside and find a way to make yourself more valuable to your employer.”

“Oh come on, quit trying to white wash this...yes it was all about slavery! Yes other factors came into play, but the main reason we had the civil war was slavery. The racism still runs too deep to pretend other wise. Give me a break!”

“Truth is truth and the facts speak for themselves. What other conclusions were we supposed to come up with after OUR nation, the USA still has a military base there in Croatia and it is still an extended hardship tour for our military. This is crap and the law suit needs to be dropped. Or do we need to just send them the bill for the money we spent stabilizing Their nation. Yes I am saying it out right, you would have nothing with out the USA! Put up or shut up!”
“I sat and pondered this horrid thought..a small percentage of this nation has served in war zones over this last decade and a half. Most of those who have served have filed bankruptcy, lost VA homes, lost or were denied promised jobs, lost jobs that were supposed to be there when they came back from war as reservist, been cheated out of VA benefits, including the GI Bill, and are now enjoying lower wages and amenities. America as a whole has faced a global economic crisis where every other option but the one that would have saved the people, consumers, and workers at large was considered. Common sense was not only ignored, but prevented from being used. I wonder at what point people will wake up and realize we, as a nation as a whole, have been bamboozled out of our retirements, pay, our homes, and investments. A few voices spoke out on our behalf, but they were quickly drowned out by propaganda. The day this nation of dreamers wakes up and smells the coffee, and realizes the betrayal, will be the day we can move forward. I pray that day comes quickly, but sadly, I fear it is far far away!”

“Finance is global. Industry is global. America's economic importance is small (20% of global GDP) and shrinking. You have to give up on the provincial fantasy that your economy is somehow sovereign.”
“Keep it boys...please give us more reasons for America to hate you and want to get rid of you! Please!”

“A Prez. who Polls are tanked in the 30's I see no love Bro, it would seem the love affair is over as well as the long honeymoon, My mother always said people always find out who a person is sooner or later, one can't always hide behind the charade they are trying to portray.”
“So the air port bullies are scared now?? Does this mean they will stop stealing from our luggage?? Unreal! How long did they think they were going to keep up their reign of terror?? Defenseless...probably not. They have become far too accustomed to nice people putting up with their garbage and taking their abuse. I am sorry for the families and victims of the shooter and I wish them well...but they are not defenseless. We are against them!”

“Who is this "we" you speak of who are against them?
I have flown several times since 9/11 and went through TSA screening at LAX just a couple months ago.
I had zero issues.
Bullies? Have you a victim complex for having to take off your shoes and having to leave your bottle of water at the checkpoint?”

“Why didn't they just come out with it first hand...Baby boomers are moving to warm and cheap climates. Another reality is how many of their relative move down there with them because of the lack of great paying jobs and the increased cost of living for families. These states are not family friendly. So if Grandma and Grandpa are moving so are they.”
“The Holy Grail of science??? Really?? The cup of Christ of Science?? An issue of providing an artifact held sacred and proves that Christ lived that probably no longer exist is being used to describe a scientific theory. That is a little to much for me. But as for her theory, I think with more research it has merit!”
