Why Raising The Minimum Wage Kills Jobs

Why Raising The Minimum Wage Kills Jobs | political articals of intrest | Scoop.it
Photo Credit: AP The minimum wage is a major anti-jobs policy.  Ten states have announced an increase in their minimum wage effective January 1, mostly because their legislation requires an adjustment to the Consumer Price Index inflation measure.  Some political jurisdictions take it further, San Francisco has a minimum over $10 [...]
Shawna Delani Lovely's insight:

I totally agree with this. increasing min. wage will make the poverty line higher. so a family that was just on or just above the line before may now be in poverty. so the gov. will have to print more money to allow that family to be on well fair. then making $8 virtually worthless. so the wage will have to go up again. This a problem, it will never end. not to mention, we need to get out of debt. this cycle will make our debt higher.... the only solution the gov. makes is to raise the debt LIMIT. This will not solve the problem. we need to be smart about this.

A Midweek Miscellany: underdogs bite upwards

A Midweek Miscellany: underdogs bite upwards | political articals of intrest | Scoop.it

The news is too far gone to parody when it declares that heart attacks give you cancer. What will they do now? Ban heart attacks? This one needs a really big bag of popcorn, with added salt and lashings of real butter. In the meantime, prepare yourself for a feast of random thoughts ansd musical interludes with no apparent connection between them. Is there one? I have no idea. I’m just letting my brain freewheel to get it ready for a Ripper-style short story that’s hacking its way out of my imagination.

 

My bent keyboard is still taking some getting used to. It typed ‘poopcorn’ above, which is an entirely different thing from popcorn as anyone who has eaten corn and later produced poopcorn will be aware.

Pope Francis decries abortion as 'frightful' sign of wasteful culture

Pope Francis decries abortion as 'frightful' sign of wasteful culture | political articals of intrest | Scoop.it
LONDON -- Pope Francis decried abortion Monday as a sign of a wasteful modern culture that treats goods and people, including unborn children, as easily discarded commodities.
Shawna Delani Lovely's insight:

Abotion is very wrong. Life is life. Even if the child has not been born yet. I would never get an abortion; even in the case of rape or incest.

The E-Cig-Denouncing, Nanny, Anti-Smoking, Crypto-Fascist Anti-Libertarians

The E-Cig-Denouncing, Nanny, Anti-Smoking, Crypto-Fascist Anti-Libertarians | political articals of intrest | Scoop.it
Regarding e-cigarettes, and e-cigars: They are totally different than cigarettes and cigars. There is no tar, no smoke, and people would live far longer if they quit real cigarettes and began smoking e-cigarettes.

 

After I read a recent story in The Hill about various legislators attacking Julia Louis-Dreyfus, the star of the HBO show "Veep," for brandishing an e-cigarette during the Golden Globe awards, I can remain silent no longer.

 

My colleague pundit Rick Manning recently addressed this matter here, and while Manning and I agree as often as Pope Francis agrees with trickle-down economics, I fully agree with his denunciation of the latest excess of the nanny-staters.

Graphic Warning Labels in the UK Have Had NO Demonstrable Effect on Smoking Prevalence

Graphic Warning Labels in the UK Have Had NO Demonstrable Effect on Smoking Prevalence | political articals of intrest | Scoop.it

When I saw Stan Glantz's recent post in which he argued that graphic warning labels will reduce smoking by 16%, I decided to write a commentary noting that the actual experience with graphic warning labels in other countries has not demonstrated any effect, much less a 16% effect. I just noticed, however, that Christopher Snowdon has written the post for me. His excellentcommentary demonstrates that the graphic warning label intervention in the UK has not been associated with any significant decline in smoking prevalence.

E-Cig Users Need Love, Too

E-Cig Users Need Love, Too | political articals of intrest | Scoop.it

As a recovering nicotine addict, the rising tide of local bans against puffing in public on electronic cigarettes makes me wonder what the lawmakers have been smoking.

 

By an overwhelming 45-4, Chicago’s City Council has voted to follow New York, Los Angeles and other cities that have passed or are considering limits on e-cigarettes that banish their use in restaurants, bars and most other indoor public places.

 

Retailers also are required to sell e-cigarettes from behind the counter so it’s harder for minors, among others, to get their hands on them.


Via GolfKahn
Shawna Delani Lovely's insight:

Why is puffing in public banned? The whole point of the electric cigarets is to make a cigaret that wont bothers the people around. Plus there is no such thing as second hand smoke..... the only way to be effected by another person's smoke it to be right in there face for hours while they smoke. I have been around smokers my whole life and I am perfectly fine.

Gordon McGlone's curator insight, January 13, 2014 4:25 AM

A notable feature of the widespread opposition to the badger cull pilots in Gloucestershire and Somerset has been the reaction of sensible, law abiding middle England.  Groups supporting badger vaccination have appeared across the country.  

Environmental and Animal Welfrare campaigning will never be the same after this episode.  Paterson and Cameron did not foresee the scale and heft of the well organised, welll informed and well considered badger groups nor did they foresee the mass campaign in support of badger vaccination.
