Want to be a one percenter? Go into business for yourself. You don't need to be a collegeRead Moregrad. B ill Gates and Steve Jobs were dropouts. They , however, had some incredible ideas, and , as a result, developed those ideas for billions of dollars. Sure, they control a lot of wealth, but it is their wealth, not anyone else's so what's the beef? If you want to be wealthy, start innovating. Otherwise, as you say, you are just a whiner, complaining about others who know how to make money, real money. Read the history of Henry Ford. He didn't become a one percenter the first attempt, or the second attempt, both times going bankrupt. The third time was the charm. Not interested in money? Then don't whine......

Seems to me that Ryan and the Republican party have the defense of our country first most, unlikeRead MoreOb ama who is cutting defense spending and troop strength while Putin chuckles in the background.

Joe, are you registered to vote? A driver's license? If so , you are already registered withRead Morethe govt, with the state. Any cop can run your license plate and know your 'history'. That includes registered weapons. Of course, by now you know the 'flyer' was a hoax, so no big deal there, but the fact is, everyone in America is registered, and so what was your Social Security number again? A number all of us have? How does this policy compare with Israel as well?

Israel is a strong military and ideological ally in the middle of a bunch loosely formed enemyRead More&quot ;countries". That is the diff.

500 light years? Move because of some 'climate change' folk who are paranoid? Easier just toRead Morest ay on this planet, which we are not destroying by the way, no more filthy than a house being lived in, and needs a major cleanup once in awhile.

It makes more sense to eliminate the minimum wage all together, and let folk make more than theRead More$10. 50 that you propose. A wage is not cast in stone, it is negotiable. When you apply for a position, the wage is dependent upon what you bring to the table in the way of attitude and skills, and how convincing you are with respect to presenting those aspects to a prospective employer. Right now, it is easy for business to just say, "we offer minimum wage for starting positions". Imagine, without a minimum wage, they would have to actually have a discussion concerning wages. Odds are, one can negotiate much better than even $10.50. By the way Joe, your numbers are off. Minimum wage in 1968 was 1.25 per hour, and went up to 1.60 in 1972. http://www.dol.gov/whd/state/stateMinWageHis.htm

The reason business folk in the banking industry are not going to prison is simple, they areRead Morefollowi ng the rules of the govt. Business can't make the rules, only the govt can. If anything is corrupt, it is due to the govt being there with it's hand out. Time to make govt a lot more simple....flat tax for a starter, and get rid of the 12,000 pages of tax codes that let certain folk get huge tax breaks and pay no taxes, and allows 47% of folk in the USA not to pay any Federal taxes, totally unfair system.....hate t say it, but Putin's tax system makes a lot more sense.

Joe, the govt controls the rules on how business conducts its affairs. Hard to find fault withRead Morebus iness, all they can do is try to influence the govt, whose fault is it when the govt accepts?

Joe, it's called 'name dropping' . First impressions count, just ask the gals, so having theRead More'toys' by working hard, earning lots of $$ , is a choice. Women are not blinded by the light, they see a hard working possible good mate, if they are single. Better to cover the bumps in the road in a Mercedes rather than a bicycle, if you have the smarts to afford the better baubles in life. Look at Cary, married a rich woman, not once, but twice, and that does not happen unless you mix with the rich and famous crowd. Who is the other Dem we can blame for this winter climate change, Gore?? How could he let this happen?? Doggone global warming.....

What size do you suggest Joe? In some states, registered gun lists have been published, alongRead Morewith names and addresses, handy for bad guys to go shopping for guns.

Why would anyone vote for a party that has turned the city of Detroit into a bankrupt mess? ForRead Moreth e last 60 years, Detroit has been run by the Dems, and since Coleman Young, by black mayors, and still Detroit continued to spiral downward. Kwame was the fnal straw, perhaps Duggan , with a proven track record of administrating, and yes , he happens to be white, can turn Detroit around. True , he is a Dem, but Detroit folk must be in a daze or something, voting for the same folk who do nothing to improve Detroit. Perhaps this time a Dem can do something besides have his hand in the till.. Did they ever find the wayward lost absent without leave council president, another Dem, what was his name, Pews? Last seen in a coffee shop in Seattle? Is this the best the Dems can do?
