    Funny thing is, you can get $18/hour at Micky D's in the Dakota's, of course everyone else is making even higher wages. There's a black gold rush going on there, with wages going up and up.

    True. So why are we under the impression that wealth is contained in currency? I'll bet you know as well as I that real wealth is based on property and that is why they call it Real Estate. Those paper bills are what they give us poor folks to play with to keep us under control.

    Or, it might start us down a path of inflation. You know if a fast fry cook is making $15 an hour is will not be long until the folks working in the car parts industry will want more, and then more will demand more. And when the American dollars if quickly becoming worthless, it is the only way to survive. We just added more expense to living in the form of the ACA. Did we not? Once we start this turning, it will not stop for a while. Our currency may become like the German Mark before Hitler where they couldn't put the price on a meal because the buying power of the Mark would change while the meal was being served.

    "Well, that could never happen here"! Why not? We adopted the European style of fractional reserve banking, why would it be so ridiculous to imagine a USA going through the same economic horrors that toppled Greece of late. Ya can't live on a credit card forever....

    I only arm myself when I feel threatened. When it is a bunch of nitwits I'm up against I see no need. Oh, and by the way, since we are educating one another, "funner" is not a word. Aren't you late for a Klan meeting?

    Northern Flash, I found an old pic of you holding this flag at a Rage against the Machine concert we went too. I hope you don't mind me sharing with our new friends here.

    Some people don't really care about the value of the dollar........because the dollars that they have in their pocket actually came from someone else's pocket. If the value of our dollar goes down, they just lobby the Govt. to give them "more dollars".

    Well those minimum wage earners are getting screwed. Don't they realize that everyone is Washington becomes a millionaire within the first few years of moving there?

    Where's the Union representation for "Burger Flippers United", those folks should be knocking down 80-90k per year......since they're in DC after all.

    The Dems. can keep spewing this "Republican war on woman", "war on minorities" and all of this other stuff......that's fine. But it no longer fits the facts. Because these current Democrat policies don't discriminate. They're showing that there is currently a war on nearly every group within our borders. And who is in charge?
