@AGit & @GreekHop: I was incorrect! I thought Greece had similar rules to France: 4 day work week, 8 weeks vacation & etc. But it seems "I recalled" incorrectly! Thx!

@CoffeeCakes: Learning on IAB = fun! lolz!

It wasn't conservatives that called it the 'Obamaphone.

(p.s. Snopes tends not to prove anything that makes liberalism look bad)

I don't think $15 an hour will make you rich. The cost of living is so high, people can't pay the bills on $15 an hour, working 40 hours a week. How the heck are you supposed to live on only 3 days wages?

Hey 5Cats.. you don't remember correctly at all.

"France has short work weeks with short hours, and look how great their economy is doing!
Greece too, iirc..."

In Greece we have unbridled robber baron capitalism where a few families run everything. Aside from a few lucky souls related to politicians and their lackeys, we Greeks work the most hours per year globally (after South Korea) according to a recent OECD report. I work my ffffing ass off and have no rights whatsoever (oh sure, I may have a handfull of rights on paper; they are 100% not applicable in the real world).

But with the poostorm of propaganda against my country that you have all been subjected too I'm surprised you don't incorrectly remember us starting WWII, the Aids epidemic, and birthing Justin Bieber and Osama Bin Laden. People will believe and incorrectly remember any old poo, oh well. If it where not for the EU proping up our political elite we would be prosecuting said e

Everyone hates socialism until they want jails, roads, and everything else.

"ObamaPhones"?

Oh! You mean the Lifeline Benefit program started in 1984 by Ronald Reagan then expanded to include cell phones in 2008 by George Bush......
Are those the "ObamaPhones" you factless twaats are constantly harping about?

The political commentary posted here is almost as brainless as Yahoo's. Almost.

Sounds like a socialist scumbag to me. Must me a Liberal.

He owns TracPhone, the #1 provider of ObamaPhones.

He's acually referancing the philosopher Bertrand Russle there, if anyone want to read more.

How are the Mexicans going to take the idea of working an extra two days?

If this actually happened I would drop my utopian communist ideals for his utopian 3-day work week.

Anyhow, it would be nice but it's unlikely to ever happen.

This will never happen. God forbid the american people have time to look up from their desks to notice what's going on in the rest of the world. They need to keep us busy and distracted... not well of and traveling.
