| Political Talk|| The GOP House should tie minimum wage to the CPI. - GumboPot on 7/28/14 at 11:51 am|
Obviously the Dems and Reps cannot come to agreement on what the minimum wage should be, so I suggest that the GOP house pass a bill and tie the federal minimum wage to the CPI which would adjust automatically annually (this also includes downward adjustments during deflationary times). This will ac...

This is why Obama and the dims are goading the GOP to proceed with impeachment hearings. They are trying to reverse this trend:

I've tried to understand the hatred to this ethnicity, but from a rational perspective I still don't get it. I've heard generalizations like, "because of Jesus", "they hoard money", "they control the banking system" and "they control Hollywood".
Personally, I'm not a Jew hater but apparently th...

| Political Talk|| Did Obama call for a cease fire when Hamas was shelling Israel? - GumboPot on 7/22/14 at 7:32 am|
And did not Egypt in conjunction with the Arab League broker a peace agreement between Hamas and Israel that Hamas went on to break not once but twice in the form of shelling Israel?
So now Obama and Kerry want Israel to "restrain" themselves. Seems like a blatant double standard. That is, it's...
| Political Talk|| Is corporate America slow playing Obama and the left with "open borders"? - GumboPot on 7/21/14 at 7:50 am|
Me thinks yes and the reason is simple, cheap labor.
Corporate America has three huge things working in their favor:
1.) A Federal Reserve policy that promotes a steady ~2% inflationary rate.
2.) A congress that keeps the federal minimum wage increases below the rate of inflation.
| Tiger Rant|| Do you think we get the ball to the TE position more this season? - GumboPot on 7/18/14 at 10:22 am|
Our TE's combined 12 catches for 211 yards and zero TDs. That's pretty anemic.
What's wrong with our TE position? Is it lack of talent? Lack of want for offensive production at the TE position?

| Political Talk|| Terrorist will never sneak across the Mexican or Canadian borders into the USA. - GumboPot on 7/14/14 at 11:50 pm|
It's much easier to fly directly into the States. I'm tired of that as an excuse to secure our borders. Terrorist would have a much more difficult time coming to the US via Canada or Mexico because they have to get into Mexico or Canada first. And those two countries have muuuuuch stricter border...

Is that true? I mean, from all the anecdotal evidence that I can gather all the new immigrants from south of the border are very hard working. Is it possible that a majority of new immigrants can be convinced to vote for liberty loving candidates to help preserve some of the labor that they so des...

It's plainly obvious that our border isn't secure when 12 year old's are simply strolling across our southern border and subsequently causing the current refugee problem.
