The $15 Minimum Wage Rage

Seattle Washington and Washington DC are preparing to raise their minimum wage to $15 per hour, this seems like a lot of money but it only amounts to $31,200 per year for full time employees.  In fact most employees in $15 per hour jobs are part time.  Nevertheless $15 per hour is an attractive wage for menial type jobs requiring little or no skills, so my hope is that every illegal, I mean undocumented, person in the United States makes a bee line for the Washingtons and starts lineing up for those jobs, of course there won't be that many jobs available because most businesses employing such people will be automating the functions they would perform.  The hourly wage would be better spent by paying low skill potential workers to go to school or back to school to learn skills that would make them employable.

Democrats in Trouble

As this article shows the Democratic Party is not fairing well in the nation as a whole, the author dosen't say it but I will, the main reason for the Democrat's decline among the nation's voters is a complete lack of presidential leadership.  The leftist media won't criticize President Obama's lack of leadership, instead he is extolled as an idealistic man of great vision.

Clintons are Pathological Liars

After months of silence President Bill Clinton admitted that he had an "Inappropriate" sexual relationship with Monica Lewinski, but claimed he did nothing "illegal".  Does this sound familiar?  Hilary Clinton admits that she used and unauthorized server to conduct government business, including classified matters, and destroyed some of the records she created and received but claims that she did nothing illegal.  One has to ask the question: What is the matter with these people, do they at long last have no shame?

If Petraeus is guilty so is Hilary Clinton

David H. Petraeus, a retired general considered one of the greatest military minds of his generation, pleaded guilty Thursday to a misdemeanor charge of mishandling classified materials, ending a long-running legal saga that had threatened to send him to prison.

Petraeus, who admitted he provided the materials to his former mistress and biographer, will instead face a two-year probationary period. U.S. Magistrate Judge David Keesler also imposed a $100,000 fine — more than double the amount recommended by prosecutors — to reflect the “seriousness of the offense.”

Hillary Clinton's Criminal Conduct?

Title 18 of the U.S. Code defines criminal conduct punishable by fine or imprisonment, Section 2071 reads as follows:

(b) Whoever, having the custody of any such record, proceeding, map, book, document, paper, or other thing, willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, falsifies, or destroys the same, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both; and shall forfeit his office and be disqualified from holding any office under the United States.

If Secretary Clinton destroyed federal records in her position she committed a crime under this section of the law.

Who is Camille Paglia?

I must confess, although I've heard the name, that I had no idea what Camille Paglia was all about until the Salon interview.   I don't agree with everything she said in the interview, but I was impressed by her candid analysis of many subjects from feminism to politics and found my self nodding my head and saying to myself "that makes a lot of sense".  I hope Salon will forgive me for posting the interview on my little blog, which nobody will ever see, I just wanted a record of what this extrordinary woman had to say so I could refer to it in the future.
