  1. Question ——why is the focus on insurance costs and not healthcare costs? If doctors and facilities charged a reasonable price for procedures, meds, diagnostics.....wouldn’t the system fix itself? highly recommend the “Adam Ruins Everything” episode on healthcare. It explains how we got to our current state. spoiler alert - it’s not the republicans fault.
  2. I'm writing my MBA thesis on the airline industry and I can say with certainty price is the absolute determination of airline ticket purchases. The things you mentioned are sometimes a thought, but ultimately it is a solely price driven utility when it comes to personal leisure travel.

    UniteTheRight White Nationalist Demonstrations in Charlottesville

    I find these things written purposely. Therefore, Constitution takes precedence. 1 - it is mentioned 1st 2 - it has no qualifier 3 - President and superior Officer orders are mentioned second 4 - POTUS and Officer orders have qualifier “according to refs and UCMJ.....”
  4. Why would he be in uniform? It wasnt a military event. #eveniknowthat
  5. Note to self...do not read over your husbands phone at a bar and make your counterargument prior to him submitting the post.... ....or so I'm told.
  6. I understand people have increased bandwidth. But when this is the focus instead of the actual huge injustice....it weakens the arguement. Suppose he was instead a decorated service member on Ellen, being gifted a new home by under armour. And he was wearing an under armor shirt.....would there be outcry?
  7. Really people?!?!?! The amount of misjustice and just plan wrongness in this story and 99% of the country right now.....and the concern is that he is wearing a SHIRT from a company of a man that us supporting him right now? News flash - military members live wearing pro-military apparel. Stop being side tracked by shiney squirrels and stick to the actual f***** up BS!
  8. I've learned that if the husband ( @TheGreatBuzz) says "hey are you asleep?"....it means either one of the dogs puked in the house or Trump did something stupid again.......I don't get to nap a lot anymore.

    Clue: Survey: What Do Women Look for in a Long-Term Partner?

    I did. The pups are now very angry. Also....I think I'm offended?

    Clue: Survey: What Do Women Look for in a Long-Term Partner?

    All of this. Men seem to have no concept of their penis size relative to "average". Every penis I've ever "Encountered" was no noticeably smaller or larger than the next. Maybe I've just been lucky, but I've never seen what I would consider a small dick. I've also never seen a KING KONG penis (except in porn) and would probably run away if I did. Also news flash - 75% of orgasms are not from penetration....so your shlong isn't the hero of the night anyway. https://abcnews.go.com/Health/ReproductiveHealth/sex-study-female-orgasm-eludes-majority-women/story?id=8485289 You notice what didn't make the list? Men who are convinced they know what women are thinking more than the woman herself. Also not on the list, men who think women are too dumb to be able to answer a survey honestly. Get outta here with this crap. hahahahahahaha. I'm surprised sense of humor wasn't on the list. Honestly it was your witty sarcasm that could keep up with mine that did me in. and our puzzle pieces seem to fit perfectly together to me!

    Clue: Survey: What Do Women Look for in a Long-Term Partner?

    and how'd that turn out?
  13. Yup, that goes back to that image I first shared. Economics have a habit of not doing what they were supposed to. And each side manipulates it to say what they want. There were more than 2 things on that poll. Everyone wants to point to other countries that do this.....but never want to discuss what their taxation looks like. I actually dont "work in HR" I work for a company who specializes is HR and Payroll Services. I am a business consultant and project manager. But I guess you're right...having analytics at my finger tips of what a few thousand SMBs do really gives me no insight to what's going on in the world. I'm clearly just an uneducated simple woman who clearly needs to know her role and let the gentleman who just want to measure their **** speak. My apologies. Exactly, these phased roll outs- which 100% I understand the why - end up just leaving us exactly where we started. I think there needs to be a definition of what jobs qualify for min wage and which qualify for living wage. And then those wages are reviewed annually to account for inflation and automatically adjusted. If this is done accurately than it would follow that we could get rid of a huge chunk of subsidies. We need to fix the illness, not just the symptoms.
  14. @Larry did a pretty fantastic job of explaining why city level is not a fair representation of what a fed min wage hike would do. Its apples to kiwi. I didnt quickly walk away. I clarified. As my original post indicated I read thru over 10+ pages to get up to speed and tried to post replies, clearly too quickly. I used "taxes" too broadly, and you folks kept me honest (which I appreciate). Very similar to how folks call pretty much all non-healthxare deductions from their paycheck "taxes"...when actually UI and OASDi....arent taxes. While I believe if many of the Dems plans are implemented taxes will probably account for the majority in the loss of true/real wealth that any increase in min wage will bring....inflation, passed thru cost of goods sold, etc will also have impact. I've never heard of any company outside of an educational institute having an "economics department". You really come off as a condescending jerk. When you have no rebuttal, why not attack the person who has real world experience and a pulse on what a lot of SMBs are doing? For the record, I'm not totally against raising min wage. I dont even hate higher taxes. I just want us to implement smart plans and not just throwing a bandaid on something or just getting a good sound bite for votes.
  15. State level isn't exactly the same a micro....but I get what you are asking. A few points : 1- states with min wages above federal level are not double....which is what $15 would be 2 - compare the maps....higher min wage = less tax friendly. There is a clear correlation here, and I would argue causation. tax map- https://www.kiplinger.com/tool/taxes/T055-S001-kiplinger-tax-map/index.php Min wage map- http://www.ncsl.org/blog/2018/08/23/state-minimum-wage-developments.aspx 3- even beyond taxes, additional cost of goods sold would be passed on to consumers making things cost more money .....when min wage raised at the state level this does not occur as much, due to large corporations being able to absorb these costs more easily or not having plants/large offices in states with higher min wage (aka work of lobbiest) 4- see photo attached, this illustrates a very important concept for economics. Do you mean finance? No, but if I did that would only give me the perspective of the company I work for. Instead, up until a few months ago I worked as the consulting partner for our clients helping with hiring/staffing/payroll decisions. Essentially had a seat at the boardroom table with a steady stream of 100-999 employee companies.
