re: Do you support minimum wage laws? - EatnCreaux on 9/5/12 at 6:11 pm
Nope. Any job that starts at minimum wage is typically a starter job. If there are starter jobs that start at minimum wage, does it not stand to reason that there would be starter jobs that would pay less than minimum wage if not for the legal prohibition? If the answer is yes, then contemplate h...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

Moving retirement funds - Bond Index or Treasury Securities? - EatnCreaux on 6/10/11 at 12:25 pm
With a significant sum that has done quite well distributed between an S&P 500 Index and a Dow Jones U.S. Completion Total Stock Market Index, I moved all of it to one that matches the Barclays Capital U.S. Aggregate Bond Index (which invests in government, corporate, and mortgage backed bonds) in e...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (3)

I'd like to see the actual order in the Judge's words. It seems odd considering a federal judge's investiture ceremony in federal courthouses routinely includes an invocation and a benediction.

It's easy to give faith-based doomsday prognosticators a pass on the path their faith leads them. But it's much harder to give a pass to the doomsday folks who misuse science. How many times have scientists done the same thing the preacher did, but without the commitment of a date?...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (3)
