Read an editorial by Ralph Nader about raising the minimum wage. You remember Ralph, right? He never had a driver’s license but he wrote about automobile safety. ” Unsafe at any Speed” the book that destroyed the Corvair. Now, Obama touts the Smart car. Unsafe when sitting still. A dual purchase, a car and a coffin, all in one. Well, old Ralph who I’m sure never had a minimum wage job, tells us we need to raise the minimum wage to $15.
There are no negative consequences for doing that, per Ralph. It’s free. The money to do that comes from God. It doesn’t come from higher prices to pay for the increased payroll. Good to know Ralph. My Econ 101 prof, Dr.Black Mike O’Connor was wrong. Want to bet, Ralph? My money’s on Black Mike, not a senile fool like you who has always been wrong about every thing.
Then I read where the states and Feds need to raise the gasoline taxes because our roads and bridges are falling apart. That’s free too. From God again. God must be busy finding ways to raise the price of goods and services without impacting anything.
Let’s see, we scrapped the space program and use the Russian taxi service to visit space now and then. Why did we do that again? Oh yes, we’re broke. We are cutting troop levels while our Russian taxi drivers are invading other countries. Why? We are broke, got that?
Why are we broke? Because we buy into beliefs from folks like Nader and Obama.
Maybe we need to find a Mike O’Conner to run this place for a while. Or even a Mitt Romney, a successful businessman who tells the truth, not a serial liar or a naive fool.
Stuff isn’t free. When you raise the minimum wage or the gas tax, you hurt the poor the most, right, Black Mike?
