re: The Democratic Party Adopts $15/hour Minimum Wage into National Platform - doubleb
Nothing, 15 dollar an hour workers are already making a fair wage. It's the 20 dollar an hour folk who will suffer. They will lose 5 bucks an hour so the 10 buck folks will have 15. Understand? One size fits all. We are all comrades. No one should make more than their neighbor. The party will make s...

re: The Democratic Party Adopts $15/hour Minimum Wage into National Platform - doubleb
Promise anything. Whst does it matter? No one would expect the Republicans to actually do what they say. Look at Congress. Republicans won control making real promises; however, what attempts were made to deliver on their promises? My side is a joke led by Boehner and McConnell. Pathetic...

re: Discussion about the Estate Tax - doubleb
[quote]Inheritance taxes do not create wealth, they merely shuffle it around. That's like saying a pool can get deeper if you take water from one end and dump it in the other. [/quote] Inheritance taxes can destroy wealth by forcing people to sell business, farms, etc. Often times a small busi...

[quote]The person inheriting the money is not storing it under a mattress. It's either being spent or saved. [/quote] You guys keep missing the obvious. The estate is often not mostly money (that can be saved or spent) but it's property or a business. What is Ma and Pa Ferd own a farm valued a...

re: Discussion about the Estate Tax - doubleb
[quote]Now, I know a lot of people are opposed to the Estate Tax because they believe it's money that has "already been taxed" and that's true.[/quote] Wrong, the estate tax is not limited to "money", it includes property, jewelry, automobiles, the entire estate. Consequently when an estate is...

re: He can't even commemorate Katrina without dragging race into it - doubleb
It's about racial discrimination, but blacks have been in charge (numbers wise) of New Orleans for decades now. And then the fact is the Democrats have been in charge of local govt. since the civil war. They controlled City Hall, the school system, and sent their share of representatives to BR. ...

SIAP, LSU president for more federal control of higher education - doubleb
[quote]The “greatest challenge facing public universities,” King Alexander explains, is that states today spend about half as much on higher education on a per capita income basis as they did in 1981. This is a direct result, he says, of a regulatory failure built into federal law. In other areas of...
