Do not intervene
Yes, do intervene
I prefer to blame every politician who caters to pro-illegal dirtbags.
Contrary to popular illegals do more than just pick tomatoes. They work in construction, factories and many other jobs that are well paying or used to be well paying.Again the law of supply and demand applies to labor.The biggest disparity is between the top one percent and everyone else. The erosion of the middle class is a problem, and has nothing to do withb Mexico

"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

Sweden has very high socialistic taxes. While the geography may be nice, the politics aren't. I didn't claim someone was wrong because they're an annoying European. I claim those saying we should do something because Europe does it are annoying because they make that claim. Like I've said, someone arguing from that point has no merit.
I have a solution for you if you see someone starving. Take them to eat, buy their groceries, and take them in. That would be the type proof I need from those who claim they are compassionate. However, having the mindset that the rest of us should do it a certain way because bleeding hearts want to do it that way isn't proof nor is it compassionate.
[QUOTE=Gimmesometruth;1063813491]The argument is that MW has declined in real terms since 1978 and coincides with that quintile's overall wage declines from the same time frame.
When skills now are on the same level as skills then, those having the same low level of skills have no argument about expecting more. If they want their incomes to grow or even maintain, let them grow their skill level. That's what many of us did and the benefits show because of it. If they would spend half as much time doing something to better themselves as they do bitching about being handed a higher wage, the problems you say exist would go away. As it stands, what we have now is two groups. Those willing to earn a better wage and those who want a better one handed to them.
[QUOTE=Gimmesometruth;1063814942]Of course it has....
I just received a $6,000 MERIT pay increase because my employer values what I offer. That means I've proven my place. As a result, I have taken on more responsibilities. If minimum wage was to go up to $15/hour like fastfood workers want, they would be more than doubling their pay for absolutely no more contribution. In life, there are two groups. Those willing to better themselves and earn what they get and those who think it is owed to them simply because they breath.
The tax structure, far from redistributing in come to the less well off, has the opposite effect.
We need an educated populace. Having a higher level of education is a benefit for all of us, and yet the cost of a college education keeps getting higher and higher. Bringing those costs down needs to be a high priority. Working your way through used to be the norm for the low income and lower middle class people. Today, it's no longer an option for most of us, who wind up with debt that continues literally for decades.
Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
