At the University of Michigan, Obama suggested that raising the minimum wage was a "no-brainer" except that "Republicans don't want to raise it at all." When the audience booed, the president advised, "Don't boo, organize." He continued: "You've got some Republicans saying we shouldn't raise the minimum wage because -- they said this -- because, well, it just helps young people." Straw man down. No Republican made that argument. They argued the opposite: that raising the minimum wage hurts young people because it makes employers less likely to offer a first job to the unskilled. He knows that.
Kind of quiet lately...does this mean everyone is happy with Obama's administration?
good afternoon NasCarNut, you are indeed correct about the numbers. that was my mistake. anyway, i had just finished reading the Annual Operations Report from a nearby municipality where it was reported that the cost per 1000 gallons of treated water was $.85 per 1000 gallons and the charge to the lowest usage tier group was $2.85 per 1000 gallons used. based on your numbers, it would appear as if you are paying $6.10 per 1000 gallons. that would seem to be quite high in comparison. however, i would think that cost may include other charges. only you will know for sure. i do not have a waterbill as i am on a private well. that is why i inquired.
c o m e, wtf...how about****;
Just checked the article (dated march 22) and the line where it said 12,000 gals is gone...but I quoted when I made my comment, so someone has since deleted that part from the article..****e on MT's, do a correction don't just delete...
I stated our household of 4 used around 4500 gallons...the article said 12,000 was normal for this size,(if I remember correctly) thought it seemed like alot when we only use 4500...maybe more in the summer...of the 30 yrs. we've lived here we've never been close to 12,000 gals...never been over 5000...from 1/16 to 2/18 we used 4600 gals and paid $28.09...
Greek... thanks for the info about George Mason U students getting enlightened. George Mason, the institution's namesake, so distrusted central power Government like the one we have now, actually refused to sign the Constitution, and resisted its ratification. He knew we needed a Bill of Rights, and probably severe term limits and tougher qualifications on voting privileges. George Mason was a wise man!
NasCarNut, you are correct...he did just say it. so it is probably a good thing he isn't a paying customer....or is he???? btw, i had wanted to comment about your water consumption from an article you commented on. for those 1500 gallons a month, what is your average water bill?
Lol, one can read between the lines and know what is really being meant...Kendall didn't beat around the bush and just said it ;)
Kendall78, it is that way by design. sometimes when being paid a compliment, as in a previous post, it would be just as easy to say thank you.
"there was no deep hidden meaning awaiting lenghty discussion or interpretation"
Yeah, deep meaning has very little to do with most of what you post.
moderation...i didn't look at it that way. i respect Kendall78 as his posts are intelligent and seemingly well though out. as i stated it was slow and i wished to stimulate some response on this topic. it was just a statement to lure someone to post. he just happened along, not by luck...but by chance. 8-)
Kendall78...unfortunately you thought wrong. there was no deep hidden meaning awaiting lenghty discussion or interpretation. just an observation on my part and a bit of a fishing statement in which to lure out an Obama defender to post. things were slow and you were the first to bite.
Oh...I just thought there was something more relevant to it than worry about a selfie.
Gee what was the carbon footprint on all those trips
Kendall78...good late afternoon and great to see you. you may wish to ask her should you really have an interest in her opinion of her trip. the observation that she went to China is true and correct. the Presidents trip to the Netherlands is also true and correct. the question was the potential for another Danish reconnection and selfie while he was in the neighborhood. i consider it to be a pertinent observation and supposition considering his amicable past.
Is there something wrong with Michelle going there?
hmmmmm....Michelle gets shipped to China with the kids and Barack gets to reconnect with his Danish interest. do you think another selfie is in the future?
