commented on The Minimum Wage Symposium: A Lot of Data and a Couple of Fights
#14 My argument exactly is what I said. The $15 an hour people KNOW that those making minimum wage are NOT, I repeat NOT doing work that warrants a higher hourly wage. So pick any number it's all BS anyway. No one is remotely serious about addressing the REAL issue, low wages are paid for low skills.
10mph IS safer than 60mph and it saves more fuel too (your point FAIL).
Your other point about buildings is so off base it's tragic.
commented on Army Veteran Says He's Been Placed In Solitary Confinement At Immigrant Jail
Serving in the armed forces is not a golden key that gets one out of jail free. He's not a citizen. He broke some law, and then he got placed in detention. I'm not seeing the reason for outrage. Again, Being a veteran does not mean you are above the law. I agree with #8 whole heartedly. But alas said prisoner has broken some other law some time in the past (misdemeanor charge) and it has now caught up with him. Breaking laws often has bad consequences. It's really dumb I know, but that's the way it happens.
