  1. Right to Work and Unions

    by , 12-26-13 at 04:39 AM
    Right to work laws seems fairly cut and dry and no brainers to me on the outside, but lets dig a little deeper. First what is it? Well correct me if I'm wrong but Right to work Laws are put in place to prevent unions from collecting dues from non union members. Seems logical and makes sense right? Well did you know that Unions have to represent all workers at a company not just the ones in their unions. And all workers get the same contract. Now does it make sense for someone who pays their dues ...

  2. Minimum wage

    by , 12-26-13 at 03:12 AM
    I believe that nobody with a full time job supporting a spouse and one child should live in poverty. I believe the National poverty level in 2013 for a family of 3 is around 19,500. This would require roughly a 10.00 an hour minimum wage to keep this family above poverty with a single worker and the other is a stay at home caregiver of the child. I would propose for 2014 a two year four phase gradual increase in the minimum wage which is currently 7.25. (8.00, 8 mo later 8.75, 8 mo later 9.50, 8 ...

  3. Same Sex Marriage

    by , 12-25-13 at 06:34 PM
    Why this is even a political issue boggles my mind. Separation of church and state ring a bell? The only arguments against same sex marriage I have heard are religious based. It is OK to be religious, but do not preach those beliefs, or try to force me to follow those beliefs. Marriage is legal in this country, why should it matter what gender it is, outside of religion? If anyone can give me an honest answer I'd love to hear it. Maybe something about morals, that seems to be a good one if you ...

  4. Abortion

    by , 12-25-13 at 05:58 PM
    I believe Abortion should be illegal under all circumstances, except extreme cases where the mothers life is in danger. I feel this way, because from the time the egg is fertilized that is a living and growing human being. Some say no it's just cells, or no its just a fetus. OK but is it frog cells, dog cells, cat cells. Pig Fetus, horse fetus, cow fetus? No its human cells and human fetus. Basically a human being at every stage. An unborn baby who has no say in how it got conceived.

  5. Taxes

    by , 12-25-13 at 05:43 PM
    Been giving this some thought and though I have not crunched any numbers together, I have a grand idea to simplify the tax system, which ofcourse will result in tax raises for some and possibly tax deductions for others. We eliminate all loop holes, tax breaks, tax credits etc etc and lower the overall tax rates. This way everyone will pay at least some taxes, if they work. My ideas are as follows

    0-10,000 for single and 0-20,000 for married and head of household-5%
    10,000-25,000 ...
