Did not say military, although I guess I can see your mistaken assumption. There are other career paths and industries that offer "Basic Training" or "Boot Camp" type products. My mistake, but that is all you get.
I never once mentioned Steamboat, again, that is your mistaken assumption. In fact, I gave you absolutely no clue where this family lives.
Real example, real person. She married her high school sweetheart and they have 3 children together. He is currently in basic training (That's all you get) No drugs, no drinking in fact these two are quite religious and family oriented. For the record, she has her two year associates and is working towards a BA.
In fact, this young couple has lived the life that our conservative friends would approve of and still have a hard time making ends meet for their family. With two working parents it should not be this hard for them.
Chris did not make a case for "Government Aid", Chris made the case that anyone who works 40 hours per week should be making enough money to be above the poverty line. This one thing would eliminate more Gov't Aid than any other approach.
This is why I should have charged you more:
"REAL LIVING WAGE"...indeed. "a $15 hour minimum wage for SB" WHAT? "give-me... give me"!!!! What Socialist crap!
People that CAN'T compete HATE capitalism...period."
Because the market will bear it. A true capitalist would recognize that there are no deals. It's all dog eat dog out there and absolutely no compassion for the less fortunate. Has nothing to do with your politics or opinions. When I see you next I will gladly shake your hand and buy you a beer.
I should have charged you more but "Chose" to give you the friends and family rate. Guess I will have to live with that mistake.
Your remarks are laughably offensive. Thank you very much for showing just how much you despise those individuals that work at normal jobs.
168 hours in a 7 day week. Tell that young mother raising a child or two that working full-time is not enough. In addition to furthering her education she now needs to find another 20-40 hours a week so that she can make ends meet. How about paying those young people a real living wage instead so they can go about making the sort of life that our generation enjoyed.
As to my personal situation, My life is quite fine thank you very much. I appreciate your little dig that I must not know anyone successful. You would be quite wrong.
Anyone that works 40 hours a week regardless of how many jobs it takes to get to 40 hours should be above the poverty line. By allowing corporations to pay poverty wages, we are in fact providing "Free Stuff" to the wealthiest individuals in our country.
Sources Mark, you know making a link so that we can all see the source of your "facts" about the EPA buying weapons. That way we can all make a judgement about your sources. This helps establish context. Here I will show you.
"The agency spends nearly $75 million each year for criminal enforcement, including money for a small militia of 200 “special agents” charged with fighting environmental crime.
Congress granted police powers to the EPA in 1988, during the Reagan administration."
You will especially note that a Republican Congress gave them policing powers during the Reagan administration so your attempt to tie this to the liberal agenda seems thin at best.
Got some sources for that Mark?
How about Driverless busses
