Joe Biden agrees 100% with Obama
on raising the minimum wage

Investor´s Business Daily, by Andrew Malcolm

Original Article

Posted By:SurferLad, 3/29/2014 9:43:08 AM

Ladies and gentlemen, I’m Joe Biden. I’m filling in for President Obama, who is abroad. I want to talk to you today about the minimum wage and the overwhelming need to raise the minimum wage. There’s no reason in the world why an American working 40 hours a week has to live in poverty. But right now a worker earning the federal minimum wage makes about $14,500 a year.

The resumes, or work that Obama and Biden do, would not justify a higher minimum wage. The consensus is they should be let go.

Used to be minimum wage jobs were, for the most part, taken by kids as they entered the workforce, however the dems have so wrecked the economy many of these jobs are now taken by people trying to support a family. The biggest threat to those at the bottom of the wage scale is immigration reform, if our borders were secure wages would be much higher then now. I have different thoughts on this issue then most here, since the Chamber of Commerce is against this while pushing for immigration I think conservatives should stick it to the chamber and join with the libs to pass a "living wage".

It´s a minimum skills law rather than a minimum wage law.

The law says you must produce ten dollars worth of value in an hour to get a job.

Guess which segment of the population this impacts most.

The party that spends other peoples money also demands that companies spend money on the liberal´s ideas.

Of course those ideas are what causes the problems that the liberals are claiming to rectify.

Hey Joe! Start a company and pay YOUR employees whatever amount you want. But the rest of us will pay our staff what they are worth. If they are worth more, we will gladly pay them more out of fear of losing them!
And the federal government has no business being involved what so ever!

Iowa's Joni Ernst gives the Republican Party's Weekly Remarks.
Hello, this is Joni Ernst. I’m a mother and grandmother, a soldier and proud to be Iowa’s Republican nominee for U.S. Senate. I get asked all the time what made me want to join the military. And the answer is simple. When I was attending college, I went on an agricultural exchange to the Soviet Union. I saw what a nation without freedom looks like. I saw what happens to people when they lose their liberty. When I came home, I decided that it wasn’t enough for me to simply enjoy freedom and liberty. I had to do my part

President Obama's weekly remarks
Hi, everybody. This week, I spent some time in Colorado and Texas, talking with people about what’s going on in their lives. One was Elizabeth Cooper, a college junior this fall. She wrote to tell me something I hear often: how hard it is for middle-class families like hers to afford college. And she shared something I know many of you feel when you wonder what’s going on in Washington. She said she feels “not significant enough to be addressed, not poor enough for people to worry [about], and not rich enough to be cared about.” I ran for President to fight for Americans just like Elizabeth — people who work hard, do everything right,

From Muslim to Mormon, Obama

When Barack Obama was first running for the White House, way back in 2007 when a billion dollars seemed like a lot of money, he presented himself as the Great Uniter. Someone whose freshness, mixed race and background would bridge America´s inherent diversities and even end the "bitter, partisan divide" afflicting Washington. [Snip] At one time or another Obama has pitted Americans against each other by class, education, income, union membership, birth control use, tax status, climate beliefs, gender and wealth. This morning comes a Gallup Poll revealing that Obama splits Americans by religion.

Another busy campaign day on the road for President Obama. Fundraisers in three cities. Speeches. Photo-op games of pool. Filling up his time for the lame duck’s last 924 days. But POTUS ran into a tall problem, a professional pol named Rick Perry, longest-serving Texas governor ever. After collecting coin in Denver, Obama hoped to breeze through Dallas and Austin scooping up more from gullible donors for his hopeless bid to keep the Senate in Harry Reid´s shaky hands on Nov. 4. But Perry´s been preparing the ground for his own media offensive over the disgraceful inundation of suckered humans

Shootings, beheadings, hangings and crucifixions continued in ISIS-controlled Iraq over the holiday weekend. The Obama team also took a break from its grueling daily photo-ops designed to change the topic of discussion from all the ongoing Obama predicaments. [Snip] After a brief appearance at a party for military, Obama played golf. This afternoon he’s off for three days of Colorado and Texas fundraisers. Analysts, meanwhile, pored over an unusual videotape released by the terrorists currently conquering Iraq. It purports to show Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the shadowy head of ISIS, speaking in a Mosul mosque at Friday prayers.

There’s nothing like the Fourth of July, a day to bask in America’s glory and to dream of better days ahead. That’s part of the genius of the Declaration of Independence. It isn´t just about what America was. It’s a vision of what she could be, of what we should always strive for. A land where the people rule, and where the common man or woman can advance themselves and the common good. [Snip] America’s greatness has always been rooted in our creative minds and entrepreneurial spirit, our ability to make things ... to make the most of our resources, to control our economic destiny.

Nowhere in the Declaration of Independence does the historic document call itself the Declaration of Independence. No matter. The 1,317 words in this enduring and then-revolutionary statement of principles and universal human rights were largely written by Thomas Jefferson between June 8 and June 28, 1776. [Snip] No surprise, the 33-year-old lawyer had a reputation as an intellectual, a skilled writer, multilingual speaker and staunch democrat. Indeed, it was Jefferson as POTUS No. 3 who introduced the political handshake as a gesture of equality among American citizens. The revered Gen. Washington deemed such common contact beneath the office.

At his first Cabinet meeting of 2014 -- a "Year of Action," Obama promised -- the president declared, "I´ve got a pen and I´ve got a phone." That meant Obama intended to go around Congress, the equal branch of government he once vowed to work with, to get stuff done. [Snip] White House strategists arranged public appearances for Obama to look assertive, active, more vows on immigration and the economy, for instance. Everywhere Obama vows to circumvent the legislative branch, despite court warnings and a threatened House lawsuit over unrestrained executive actions. "Sue me!" he defiantly said Tuesday.

This Barack Obama is a real piece of work. As the nation´s alleged leader, he manufactures crises, like a good Alinsky Acolyte would. As the commander-in-chief of the United States, he ignores problems, allowing them to fester until they become serial crises that he then employs to distract a lazy media and public attention from other crises. It´s the M.O. of B.O.. And, folks, it doesn´t look to get any better in the 933 endless days left. Let us count the crises:

In his weekly radio/YouTube address, President Obama derided House Republicans’ planned lawsuit against him, warning that GOP lawmakers will spend taxpayer dollars on a frivolous legal challenge. “It’s a political stunt that’s going to waste months of America’s time. And by the way, they’re going to pay for it using your hard-earned tax dollars,” Obama said. (Video) House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, has orchestrated the beginnings of a lawsuit against the president over his use of executive authority. As the White House and the GOP-controlled House have failed to compromise on a slew of issues during Obama’s tenure, the president has

The couple, who own hundreds of acres of protected land in Shelburne Falls, about 100 miles west of Boston, have been opposed to the pipeline since the company notified them last winter of plans to survey their land. Through a spokesman, the couple said it was “astounding” that New England’s six governors support the proposal, which they said shows “disrespect for humans, flora and fauna.” Supporters of the $3.75 billion Northeast Pipeline Extension Project say it will provide

Glenn Beck has set up Mercury One Children and Family Border Relief Fund to help illegals coming into the United States. He’s already raised $600,000. Beck stated that Obama would not have to step in and ask for $3.7 billion if private charities would pick up the slack and give to the swarm of illegals crossing the border. Is he kidding? Do we really need more churches and non-profits enabling this blatant attack on America? Rich people and liberal elite billionaires have no skin in the game when it comes to the consequences of illegal immigration so what do they care? It’s the working class and middle class who will take the hit.

On Friday’s broadcast of PBS’s “NewsHour” New York Times columnist David Brooks and Creators Syndicate columnist Mark Shields took on the House Speaker John Boehner’s lawsuit against the Obama administration, which alleges oversteps in executive authority by the Obama White House. Both acknowledged Boehner’s gripe with the Obama administration had merit, but were skeptical of the lawsuit’s chances. However, they both also took on the alternative offered by former Gov. Sarah Palin (R-AK), which was to impeach President Barack Obama. Both dismissed that course of action as well, with Brooks calling it “cloud cuckoo land.” Partial transcript as follows: WOODRUFF: So the Highway Trust
