I think this was very one sided and ignores a lot of the other issues involved... raise the minimum wage? according to the bureau of labor statistics, about 6% of all hourly workers in America make at or less than minimum wage? Gonna help? Doubt it... furthermore, I just watched a 60 Minutes report on minimum wage / living wage / poverty... the example mother of 3 they interviewed worked for McDonald's for 10 years, but still can`t make enough to make ends meet... ok, you`re 24, unmarried, and have 3 kids... and therefore, I should pay more for a hamburger to cover that set of life choices? I can`t tell you all the kind of sacrifices my family and I had to make for me to go to college, and get a job that wasn`t hourly... furthermore, when asked, she explained that she was offered promotions 3 times, but it would have meant, due to lower seniority, more nights & weekends... which she refused so she could spend time with her kids... I`m sorry, this isn`t so one sided as "ever

@irun

I think we have this misconception or maybe ignorant point of view of "poor" people and/or "lazy people". I know plenty of my "wealthier" friends and colleagues that mismanage their money. People that make 6 figures but buy outside their means. Every "class" of person does it. We are all human we want stuff. I'm not saying the people you reference do not exist, I only question how many of those types of people actually exist

what a load of crap. certain people will always be poor because they can't manage their money. others are just lazy and depend on government handouts. i will not work my life away so others can sit on their butts. the walmart situation is messed up but i make just enough to have a car to get to work, a bed to sleep in and just enough left over for a couple luxuries. i`m the last person you should talk to about welfare.

Question: If the USA did not have it's current military Power how long before the EU would be either Russian or Muslim?
