  1. Just read that Jay Carney said that O will discuss Living Wage.
    There is no such things a living wage.
    Definition: To maintain normal living standards.
    However normal is different for everyone. Compare normal in Venice Beach, to what is normal in Oklahoma

    • The minimum wage was never intended to be a living wage.
      Burger flipping is not a ‘career’. At least not for Americans.

      The D.C. Council voted in a $11.50.hour minimum wage – up from the $7.25 Fed minimum wage. Good luck to the low-skilled workers and teenagers looking for jobs.. Wages up? So are prices. How about a $10 Big Mac?
      Obama is the abominable job killer!

      • Good points, Girly. Dictated higher minimum wages will mean higher prices and more unemployment for young people. Possibly more employments for illegals ?
        Hopefully the low wages and harsh working conditions in some lines of business branches can be affected through other means, for example by consumers, by media.

        • A few weeks ago my daughter placed an ad in a business journal for a ‘personal assistant’ – $10/hr. She had over 150 responses, mostly from college graduates. It’s a sad commentary!
          Obama has no clue as to what’s happening in the ‘real world’.

        • I suggested a project yesterday. To start fixing old bridges one at a time. Jobs for American citizens only. All concrete, etc has to come from any companys left in America.
          O only wants to restrain, belittle, etc the people of America with his stupid ideas, and threats with his Pen and Phone in hand.

  2. Hey!
    Madagascar is one of “hiding holes” (Im just like Jason Bourne with a suitcase full of passports & bank account numbers :-)

  3. Much has been made here in the state of Kentucky that our Governor has been invited to the speech tonight. Supposed to use our state’s healthcare exchange as a big success story (since the fed site can’t be called a success). Of course if you consider every 3 in 4 sign-ups in Kentucky being for Medicaid, then I guess it’s a success.
