    Our cutting away at the country's progressive tax rates over the last 30 years as part of the GOP's policy of supply side economics, has contributed to the record wealth inequality in this country. So yes, as poll after poll have shown, the majority of Americans see no benefit to continuing to allow it.

    Imagine that, being paid a living wage versus groveling for tips. The colder air up there must improve the circulation in the brain or something...................

    Yep, a good thing to remember, when in Canada we don't have to tip. However, might be good if they remembered, when in America, you should tip.

    I've run a Dominos and a Godfathers in my past, the only place I can imagine seeing such an income is in places where the cost of living is so high that $600 a week won't begin to cover a quarter of your rent.

    Outliers are not demonstrative of the average.

    That's why they're called outliers.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    depends on the city,but where im at,drunken soldiers tip the best,and they are always drunk.

    if its a big city,no 600 a week wont cover anything more than a 1 bedroom studio and a case of ramen noodles and a dial up internet,but thats why most people only work in them,not live in them.

    i knew people who worked in la and lived in joshua tree,2 and a half hours away,because it was still cheaper after gas costs to get a 4 bedroom there and all other living costs than it was to get a 1 bedroom in that city.

    It was an alright film. Felt more like the usual Cold War propaganda to me, though.

    Non-cynically, the war is always on. And if you ever catch yourself thinking it's not, that just means the players are really good at hiding it.
    The Cold War is over. The Soviet Union lost, it's why they aren't the USSR anymore. We're fighting a different enemy, but still using the same tired old doctrine and methods. Updating our strategy and how we perceive the world is long overdue, and has been for about 50 years.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    It may be a big country, but 80% of all Canadians live within 100 miles of the US border. Its probably a defense perimeter: Canadians on guard for thee, protecting the homeland against the hoards of people to the south that cross the border in the middle of the night seeking a better life.
