  1. Keith, I often daydream about the late evening /early morning that I will check in here to see the schedule and it will be for January 20th, 2017. I honestly wish I could take a long nap and wake up on that day. I truly cannot wait. Until then, I’m praying every day that this country wakes up and decides to elect a true conservative to clean up this horrific mess.

  2. Minimum wage laws are one of the most invidious forms of taxation. Simple formula, pay workers more and collect more taxes. It’s a percentage thing, not to mention racially biased. “Racially biased” you say? Why whatever do you mean?

    If the wage is $10 per hour, what about the person who would be willing to do that work for say $9.00? They are prohibited from competing fairly for that job. They cannot even make an offer to do that work for a lesser amount and the chance to prove themselves. And who might wish to make that offer? The unemployed…of which a disproportionate amount are young adults and minorities. Some where there is an article by Walter Williams that explains in more detail.

  3. Oh goody. Now all new federal contracts are going to cost MORE to offer the same service as before. But since it’s all in the name of “fairness” and “social justice” it doesn’t matter that the taxpayer gets screwed AGAIN.

    Barack Hussein Obama: The only man that inspires Jimmy Carter to get out of bed each morning.

  4. Does this schedule reflect about 2 hours of actual work for today? This is not a real President! What will raising the minimum wage do for the young black unemployment rate already at 25%. Raising the rate will raise prices (inflation), the biggest tax on the middle class. The good that is done by giving a living wage to some will be offset by the employer decision to lay off a few to account for the wage increase. Welcome to the real world Mr. Obama, the post turtle president.

    • And what they won’t tell you while they push to raise the “minimum” wage is how many union contracts have wages tied to the min wage. It goes up, there’s go up.
      And when theirs go up, dues go up. And when dues go up, the DNC gets happy, happy, happy.
