Nope it won't say the experts...You raise the minimum wage and that money is immediately spent by the poorest among us back into the economy just to make ends meet thus boosting the economy...If you give these outrageous bonuses to the CEOs they just sit on it and don't create more jobs as has been proven lately...so I will go with the experts on this subject....

All these experts has sure helped our economy!

That is because the experts have no power to do anything. They can only wait for people to lesson and act. The money is still going to the over-priced executives so the economy is still slow.

tax, "...that money is immediately spent by the poorest among us back into the economy just to make ends meet thus boosting the economy", doesn't seem reasonable to you?

Does it seem reasonable to you believing that the super-rich and CEO's of this world really have your best interest at heart?

Why are the poor and lower middle class always the scheisters, but the rich are somehow the epitome of altruism?

The small business is what will be hurt with the wage increase.

Sunday Morning Bobblehead Thread

Posted: 02 Oct 2011 05:00 AM PDT


"Nickel and Dimed" from Lewis Lapham's "The American Ruling Class" available for purchase here or through Netflix streaming.

I don't know about you, but I feel very nickel and dimed of late. From the obscene monthly charge for using an ATM card levied only on those who don't carry a $6,000 balance in their checking account (because it makes sense not to charge those who have no problem affording it, right?) to job websites discriminating against the unemployed to all the absurd extra fees, charges and humiliation I had to endure flying home from a family get together. And yet when I look at the roster of the Sunday shows, I see all the same familiar faces and NOT ONE of them will talk about what it's like for most Americans. I suspect that most don't have a clue that they don't know what it's like for most Americans, and worst, they don't care.

If it's Sunday, it's the John McCain Show, this time on Face the Nation. And the media is going to give Herman Cain his due as the Florida Straw Poll winner with two spotlights on This Week and Fox News Sunday. Imagine if he polled higher than 5%! Dick Cheney and his daughter Liz will appear together, making State of the Union the official nexus of evil this weekend. And for some giggles, check out Chris Matthews' topic. After 30 years of catastrophic Reagonomics poisoning the economy, he wants the panel to tell him whether they think America is beginning a long-term decline. Like I said, most of them do not have a clue what it's like for 99% of the American people.

"Generosity begets generosity...stinginess impoverishes". Mark 4:25.

I think I first learned this in the 70's and it is so right on:-)

Your such a nice person. Does it make you feel big and better than everyone else to answer my question the way you do? Who said I even watch Fox new?

When I began to read your post, howdy, I initially thought you were referring to Barbara Ehrenreich's book Nickled and Dimed which I heartily recommend everyone read. It's an excellent illustration and commentary on the plight of the low income earners of this country.
