    Well, when you virtually deify his financial acumen at every turn and he speaks using said financial "wisdom", yeah, you're pretty much on the hook.

    "Virtually deify his financial acumen at every turn?"

    No. Nobody does that. What an absurd characterization.

    If the MW were to be raised to $15/hr tomorrow, or even by the end of the year, it would cause some disruptions in the low value business market. This is why a gradual increase has continued to prevent potential shock, more so than it has kept minimum wages up with inflation.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    It's precisely what liberals do when Buffet talks the smack they want to hear. You denying that is laughable.

    Uh huh. And when a conservative agrees with something a conservative says, it's reasoned opinion based on facts and whatnot.

    We already have the government in control of 12 years of failed public education. Leave colleges alone.



    Liberals should be apologizing for what they have done to schools in this country.

    Re: Warren Buffett Don't raise the minimum wage

    I think many agree $15 is too high. That would cause massive job loss but a raise to $9 or perhaps even $10 over a 4 or 5 year period is reasonable. I think many asking for the $15 are hoping to "compromise" for a $10 wage when that is what they've wanted all along.

    Our public school system needs work but to blame a political ideology solely accountable for such a complex problem like the whole education system is, quite frankly, laughable.
