Oh the horrors of rasising the minimum wage

Here is an article on what can happen when the min. wage is increased to $15.00/hr


If the repugs hate a black president,

and considering their dislike of women, I think if Hillary wins, they'll treat her probably worse than they have Obama.

President Obama really HAS brought out the worst in some people

but then, these 'some people' are all racial bigots. He has brought out the best in many people in this country, and I hope this is what he will be remembered for along with the raising economy, etc.

Have you ever felt like the whole world is screwed up?

At 79, I hope I go before the start of WWIII. The terrorists (of all kinds), the sports figures doing weird stuff,
etc. -- I think perhaps the Buddhists are the only ones that don't want to start a war with someone else, and I'm not 100% sure about all of them. You know, we really should start putting all the 'good' news here as well all the other stuff we put here. Can't think of any just off hand, but will keep looking.

Every child when I was one

must have been physically 'abused'. Why, every one of us that I knew had been whipped with a limb from a tree or scrub. Can't you just imagine every parent in going to jail for teaching their child a lesson about why you really shouldn't be doing bad things.
(I'm 79)
It usually only takes once, then you don't ever do any thing naughty again.

So, the old Mitt thinks that

1. he could have done better than Obama
2. he certainly can do better than Hillary

What he has left un-said is that the only thing he could have done is to make his wealthy friends even
wealthier, and the rest of us even poorer.

Wow, the cloud is the worst idea in tech history

The people who came up with the 'cloud' for storing your data file back-ups had to be really stupid. But then, look at all the stupid people who believed them! Hey guys and gals, if it is on the internet IT ISN'T SAFE FOR ANYTHING you don't want anyone else to see.(especially 'nude' photos of yourself)

C H I N A and how to improve America

I would suggest that Obama calls for all American companies that have shipped jobs to China must return those jobs to this country within 6 months, or, their products will not be allowed to enter the U.S.
China seems to becoming a threat to the U.S., and has become a very important financial country.
Now, if we take all the outsourced jobs out of China and return them home, we very quickly accomplish at least two things:
1. Our economy will expand back to the greatness we used to have.
2. China's economy will crash, making them much less of a threat.

As a 2nd point now related to China is, we stop giving aid to any country that commits acts which we cannot go along with
(eg. Israel taking over land for their own.), and any other country that supplies our enemies with weapons.

The Pres. in Ferguson?

I usually ready 'the grio' in the mornings, but just got to it. Read an article about why Obama should visit Ferguson. It made a lot of sense. However, if Obama does go there, AND walks down the street, he had better have a whole passel of secret service surrounding him. With the white cops in Ferguson, who knows if any of them would recognize, or, even care - hey, he's black = let us shot him before he can get away!

what the hell is going on in this country? this world? Could we be getting close to end of time?

Bad apples

As the old saying goes, put one rotten apple in with a bushel of good apples, it doesn't take long for them all to go bad. Of course the solution should have been don't put a bad apple in in the first place, or at least take it out before it does more harm.
Now, replace the word 'apple' with 'cop', you get the idea.

To bad we can't take all the bigots out. Wouldn't it be great to have everyone being friendly with everyone else? We can't take all the bigots out, but we should at least be able to keep them out of the entire justice system, from police to prosecutors, to judges, jurors, etc..
It would also be nice to keep them out of Congress (both houses).
