“I'm sure Carlson's next show will call out Koch on his language about Obama. Right?”

“I'll take my business elsewhere. Anyway, it's time we started supporting locally owned businesses as much as possible ... you know, the ones that have a vested interest in local communities instead of companies like HD that hire low wage workers and syphon a major portion of the money away from local economies.”

“I would like to see the negotiations of CEO salaries as public and open as union negotiations. Somehow, I don't think the execs would like people (shareholders) being privy upfront to the details of the packages they negotiate.. I doubt the skewed ratio of pay raises for CEO's, particularly for those who run companies into the ground, would be so prevalent ... going from 40 times the average workers pay 30 years ago to the current 550 times a worker's pay.”

“Sure. Salaries in the entertainment industry depend on performance ... unlike CEO's whose salary is not based on performance. But hey, I'm all for basing their salaries on performance ... and I don't just mean the $ bottom line. If it's heading that way for the lowly un-well paid teachers, surely we want the same standards for well paid CEO's.”

“I don't understand. What relevance does you thinking the EU socialist nations are going to be in very serious economic trouble have? It's a guess ... not fact. We are trailing them in many categories ... that'a a fact.

Also, what relevance to the present situation does the US's greatness during WWII have? We are the richest and most powerful now ... but compared to the WWII era we are less happy, more stressed, overworked, less healthy ... and for the middle and lower class, if you factor in cost of living, our earning power has gone down. Corporations, through lobbying and buying candidates through campaign contributions, are running this country. And make no mistake, THEY are using socialism by taking risks and passing the debt consequences of those bad risks on to the lower and middle classes to pay for THEIR problems.

Individual responsibility? ... YES! ... with equal opportunity for all. At least we kind of agree on one thing. :-)”

“Must be a hard life to live in such fear of "words" that have been droned into your head as bad. Imagine thinking for yourself. France is a socialist country. Sweden is a socialist country. Australia is a socialist country. And guess what ... they're leaving us in the dust ... happier, healthier, better educated, less stressed, better vacations, better healthcare.”

“The U.S. is not the richest nation on earth but actually the most indebted.

We are increasing our debt by approximately, $58,000/second, $188 million/hour. We are living on borrowed money and borrowed time.

How will our children and grandchildren pay that debt – now at $14.5 trillion and increasing at approximately $4.7 billion per day??!!

Where we were before, during and for several decades after WWII is very relevant. Give thought as to how we became the greatest nation on earth.

We started from nothing in 1776 and surpassed every civilization on the planet in a mere 170 years! I would emphasize our successdid not happen by accident.

It happened because of our customs, practices and governing principles. Were we perfect? Absolutely not.

Unfortunately, in order to correct those imperfections, we abandoned the principles, customs and practices that made America an exception to all prior civilized governments on earth.

Centralization of power governing all aspects of life is a very bad thing. Absolute power corrupts absolutely.

Freedom for all equals opportunity for all. I agree 100% with what you said regarding "opportunity for all." It is also critical to remember that "opportunity for all" does not guarantee success for all.

My sister received better grades than me in high school because she worked and studied hard while I spent time being less responsible. We had the same opportunity to receive high grades but because of effort and discipline, we had different outcomes.”

“I think your going to find in the very near future that the socialist nations of the EU are going to be in very serious economic trouble.

France would be speaking German today if they had not been liberated by what was then the greatest nation ever to exist on this planet - the USA,

Furthermore, the reason the US became so great was because we had a unique and exceptional form of government based on individual responsibility, self reliance, and freedom that had never before existed in modern civilization.”

“So glad to hear Van Jones speak out and tell it like it is. Such huge extremes have developed and the disappearing middle class is carrying the burden. There are so many hurting people, and there is a sick heartlessness that turns a cold shoulder towards finding real viable solutions in favor of the bottom line. What people need to understand is that when there is a hole in the back of the boat, the front is in serious trouble, too.”

Minimum Wage Increase Would Help Sluggish Economy, Say Experts

“Read the article. Minimum isn't $7.25 an hour. And who would do the menial jobs if all the unskilled workers left? Oh my, you'd have to swallow hard when that fast burger doubles in cost because no one will work there.”

theelephantintheroom on Jun 7, 2011 at 18:40:48

“Well, according to the article the minimum wage is $7.25, and here in CA, the land of the fruits and nuts, it's $8. There will always be plenty of unskilled workers to fill these types of jobs. Are you on something?”
