    I think minimum wage should be $100. That'll take everyone out of poverty, increase the amount of taxes and social security the gov't takes and cut the food stamp rolls. If someone can justify $10.10 a hour, I can use those say words for $100. I remember when min was a $1. A $10.10 would be more than 10 times that. No different than $100 being 10 times $10.10.

    Want to raise pay eliminate the EPA at the Federal level. That would create jobs.

    SPLS - I sold it two years ago. They cannot compete with Walmart or the internet/Amazon. Latest is getting 3D printing in stores. Cool but too expensive.

    ber,

    I was just going to ask you why didn't you move. Then you said you had and made a great decision. A notorious bank robber was asked why he robbed banks. Response "That's where the money is"

    I wish more people would follow your advice and move to where the jobs are.

    James,

    Your presumption is that age (65) not financial wealth is the right to retire. Sounds like he needs to go back to work! When his salary was cut 1/2 to 1/3, did he also cut his spending by that amount? I know many people who are very generous with their money - especially to kids. The forget about retirement for themselves. I have a friend that thought he would die early and retired. Went thru money at crazy rates. Then he got the bad news from the doctor he'd live another 20 or 30 years. He went back to work.

    It misspoke, not low inflation but rather deflation. We spin the economy into a deep hole, never to get out. If the car you are going to buy will be cheaper next month, you'll wait which slows demand. No demand means no production, no work etc etc. That $17Trillion debt is more expensive to pay back. Dollars are worth more each month in deflation than when we have high inflation and pay our debts with cheaper dollars.

    The Fed isn't going to get people back to work Washington policies are! ObamaCare, EPA, and bank over regulation is choking business and therefore no hiring.

    We have a secret weapon. Tornadoes. We wipe the slate clean every few years and build new homes.

    The People's Republic of California has its own way of putting things. So houses are built to withstand earthquakes in California. How about draught, smog, mudslides and massive forest fires. Don't forget about lack of water in the south. Except for Silicon Valley, Disney Land, and wine country; it has overpopulated itself. Don't forget about that fence in San Diego

    ber,

    Conservative talk shows are going just as far right and liberals are going left. Neither is fair and balanced. I'm so tired of Fox going on about ObamaCare! The left must get its news from the funny papers. NBC reported on the weather for 10 minutes each day for about two weeks. The only thing worth watching is sports.

    I believe he missed a zero in his minimum wage mandate. $100.01 would buy a lot more votes!
