Quick Hits

After a long hiatus, because we needed the break:
  • Like this is a surprise? Women talk three times as much as men. Wow. Next we'll find out that the Irish drink 3 times as much as the Italians and they'll both fight anyone who thinks they drink less than the Germans. We need scientists for this?
  • Surprise! A bribe taking aldercreature and convicted felon wants his job back. Channel 2 and Channel 5 cover Medrano's comeback attempt.
  • Isn't this a bad idea? We thought the idea of a thong was that is was barely there? So why would anyone unveil the "World's Largest Thong" at a lingerie show in Chicago? Someone really ought to talk to these marketing people.
  • Once again, in an effort to defy conventional wisdom, Illinois lawmakers are preparing to raise the minimum wage, thereby chasing more jobs out of Illinois, contribute to the underground economy fed by illegals willing to work for less than the minimum and driving yet another nail into the coffin of high paid union jobs. Way to go!

Talk has been in our unit that legislatures in Illinois are planning to tax our government pension....any truth to this?

Hey what about raising our pay! The fat cats in Springfield voted for their raise.

If you raise the minimum wage all you do is raise the cost of everything. The employers have to pass the expense along to the consumer. So you might make more but you cant afford to purchase anything more then before.

Min wage was never meant to support families. When I was growing up, part-timers, students, etc., were recipients of the min wage...Want to make more money? Get an education beyond HS or GED (or dropout) or choose a trade that can support your family.

Illegal immigants and those with low level education want to beef up the minimum wage to support their huge families.
