    Things aren't getting better for America's middle class.
    Water is wet.
    It's generally colder in the winter than in the summer.

    Some things are obvious and indisputable, perhaps even self evident.

    And the role of the government is outlined in the Declaration of Independence "It is for the preservation of these rights that governments are instituted among men...."

    Not to guarantee a living wage for everyone.

    Now let's see... the solution to this problem is, what then?
    "Donald Trump is a phony, a fraud... [he's] playing the American public for suckers." Mitt Romney

    I don't think the BLS is lying...why should they?

    All they have to do is legally skew the numbers so they make their bosses happy.

    Why risk legal problems when you don't have to?


    You wanna think otherwise, go ahead.

    Oh. You would prefer our low-skill low-education workforce remain unemployed?


    The issue is not how low wages can go but whether or not and how high people can climb.

    Failure to present an entire truth is....LYING. "Legally skew numbers so they make their bosses happy" Lying is lying.

    Do you understand that the written law was never intended to define standards of morality? The written law only sets out a level below which your behavior may not fall or you will be punished. BIG difference, but very important for moral and honorable people to understand.

    It's important to try not to get too cute. People lose respect for you.

    Fine, so when you get proof, call the media...power to you.

    Until then, I don't much care.


    Good day.

At least we want corporations to take some responsibility instead of pushing off for their business models expenses on the taxpayer.
    More BS Rob...

    1. Progressives would love nothing more than to see Walmart close its doors. Which would ensure that ALL their employees instantly become welfare recipients.

    2. "Cheering for"? If you mean that I support a company that gives people a start in the job market by offering employment vs. having them stay on welfare generationally speaking, then yes, I suppose you could say that.

    As I said earlier in the thread, I have a son that works for Walmart, and has for sometime now. It's a second job now, so the pay is not his sole source of income, but he likes the people he works with, and makes nearly $12 per hour.

    Walmart's model, much like McDonald's, or Grocery stores, or any number of entry level jobs were never designed to offer career employment to everyone it hires. They are ENTRY level jobs meant for teens to get some job experience, learn how to work before they hit their career path.

    Not to mention Walmart is offering America more financial aid through their pricing of goods, than Obama has done. Obama is actually causing prices in this country to rise through regulation that squeezes business out.

    Energy is one sector of this, Transportation another.

    So, your left wing meme makes for a nice political sound bite, but it is complete Bull, and you know it.

    I'm sure his sentiment toward you would be the same.
