If you consider the right, Republicans I agree whole heartedly. Congress has been out of control spending wise for decades. The biggest difference between liberals and Conservatives on govt. spending IMHO. is priorities and overall size of government.


I cannot argue with you on that one!

Minimum wage by U.S. state, the District of Columbia, and territory versus the federal rate of $7.25
The minimum wage in the United States is set by US labor law and a range of state and local laws.[2] Employers generally have to pay workers the highest minimum wage prescribed by federal, state, and local law. Since July 24, 2009, the federal government has mandated a nationwide minimum wage of $7.25 per hour.[3] As of January 2018, there were 29 states with a minimum wage higher than the federal minimum.[4] From 2017 to 2018, eight states increased their minimum wage levels through automatic adjustments, while increases in eleven other states occurred through referendum or legislative action.[5][6]
Using 2018 inflation-adjusted dollars, the federal minimum wage peaked at $11.79 per hour in 1968.[7][8][9] If the minimum wage in 1968 had kept up with labor's productivity growth, it would have reached $19.33 in 2017.[10] There is a racial difference in support for a higher minimum wage with 89% of Black and 71% of Latino individuals supporting a $15.00 federal minimum wage, and 54% of Whites opposing it.[11] In 2018, about 2% of White, Asian, and Latino workers earned the federal minimum wage or less. Amongst Black workers, the percentage was about 3%.[12]

Imagine that. The perpetual victims don't want to be paid what competition says they're worth; they want to be paid what they say they need. I'm against any minimum wage but that cats out of the bag. You know you clowns cry that tariffs raise consumer prices all the time. Got news for you; raising the minimum wage raises consumer prices.

Prices go up even when wages remain stagnant. Do you remember when a cup of coffee was 25 cents or less?

You got that right. The only bright spot for me personally is due to my health and age. I'm on borrowed time. But I feel sorry for the rest of you. My being a big tax payer and the government hasn't figured out how to tax the dead (YET), guess who will have to make up their loss. Sorry but it's not my decision. Think it's God's, or an illegal alien after my wallet. Wholly cow, I'm a sitting duck.


Can you say estate tax???? Which happens to be so completely stupid, but if you got some the gov gonna get theirs even when you’re dead!!!!!! 😭😭😭

Interesting math you have there. 36,000,000 ÷ 1440 (minutes in a day) = 25,000, you claim that 20,928 of that is pure profit. So, using your assumption, retailers mark up their wares by over 500%? You have never ran a retail outfit have you? I can assure you, the typical retail markup is NOT 500% over wholesale. Typical retail markup fluctuates greatly with many factors, but standard rule of thumb is typically around a ±100% markup. You don't become the largest discount retailer by jacking your prices up well beyond standard markup.

For the sake of making the math easier for everyone, let's assume that the result of 36m ÷ 1440 is 25k and that OP's assumed ppm was 20k not 20,928. The 25k figure is how much money comes into Walmart's possession every minute (Assuming the 36m per day figure is accurate) which breaks down to 25k per minute being acquired by Walmart every minute on the average, of that 25k per minute, the OP assumes that 20k of that is profit, which means that Walmart burned through 5k worth of merchandise (wholesale value). Assuming wholesale value of 5k and total sales of 25k making 20k profit, that would be a 500% markup or 80% of total sales is pure profit. Walmart would not be a discount retailer with that kind of markup would they?

Could you provide a source for you information mr. mr.? I would like to look over their figures.

Great math skills but you miss the point of the post. Career politians that refuse to balance a budget surely are screwing the proverbial dog as hard as they can and like it or not, every dem candidate is wanting to SPEND, SPEND, SPEND!!!!!! Where’s it gonna come from?!?!

Nope. Must of not drank it then. Wages aren’t the only driver of prices but they are a big part.

I have never seen a dead person write out a check to the government yet. Even if it were to happen or my heirs get billed, it would be a one time payment. Then what? I think you can guess. Of course it's stupid tax but it shows how the government thinks. They will stop a nothing to "steal" money through taxes.

1. Americans spend $36,000,000 at Wal-Mart Every hour of every day.

2. This works out to $20,928 profit every minute!

3. Wal-Mart will sell more from January 1 to St. Patrick's Day (March 17th) than Target sells all year.

4. Wal-Mart is bigger than Home Depot + Kroger + Target +Sears + Costco + K-Mart combined.

5. Wal-Mart employs 1.6 million people, is the world's largest private employer, and most speak English.

6. Wal-Mart is the largest company in the history of the world.

7. Wal-Mart now sells more food than Kroger and Safeway combined, and keep in mind they did this in only fifteen years.

8. During this same period, 31 big supermarket chains sought bankruptcy.

9. Wal-Mart now sells more food than any other store in the world.

10. Wal-Mart has approx 3,900 stores in the USA of which 1,906 are Super Centers; this is 1,000 more than it had five years ago.

11. This year 7.2 billion different purchasing experiences will occur at Wal-Mart stores. (Earth's population is approximately 8.5 Billion.)

12. 90% of all Americans live within fifteen miles of a Wal-Mart.

You may think that I am complaining, but I am really laying the groundwork for suggesting that MAYBE we should hire the guys who run Wal-Mart to fix the Government.

This should be read and understood by all American's Democrats, Republicans, EVERYONE!!

To the 535 voting members of the Legislature

It is now official that the majority of you are corrupt morons :

a. The U.S. Postal Service was established in 1775. You have had 244 years to get it right and it is broke.

b. Social Security was established in 1935. You have had 84 years to get it right and it is broke.

c. Fannie Mae was established in 1938. You have had 81 years to get it right and it is broke.

d. War on Poverty started in 1964. You have had 45 years to get it right; $1 trillion of our money is confiscated each year and transferred to "the poor" and they only want more.

e. Medicare and Medicaid were established in 1965. You have had 44 years to get it right and they are broke.

Freddie Mac was established in 1970. You have had 49 years to get it right and it is broke.

You have FAILED in every "government service" you have shoved down our throats while overspending our tax dollars.


IF you keep this circulating. It is very well stated. Maybe it will end up in the e-mails of some of our "duly elected' (they never read anything) and their staff will clue them in on how Americans feel.
AND

I know what's wrong. We have lost our minds to "Political Correctness!

Someone, please tell me what the HELL's wrong with all the people that run this country!

We're "broke" & can't help our own Seniors, Veterans, Orphans, Homeless, etc.

In the last few months, we have provided aid to Haiti, Chile, and Turkey And now Pakistan previous home of bin Laden. Literally, BILLIONS of DOLLARS!!! (And you can't agree to a simple $5B for a wall to help keep us safe?!!!)

Our retired seniors living on a 'fixed income' receive no aid nor do they get any breaks.

AMERICA: a country where we have homeless without shelter, children going to bed hungry, elderly going without 'needed' meds, and mentally ill without treatment - etc, etc.

And the CRAZIES in California want to give "free" medical care to illegal aliens.

My friends, nothing is "free". You and me, the working Americans will be taxed to pay for this giveaway!!

Imagine if the *GOVERNMENT* gave 'US' the same support they give to other countries. Sad isn't it?
