It’s a good thing the world’s not on fire or anything.
Thumbs up: Yesterday, President Obama raised the minimum wage for federal contract workers to $10.10/hour, and called on Congress to do the same for all Americans.
Gee whiz. It’s almost as if destroying [what’s left of] the economy is his hobby.
There are no “customers” in government. Governments don’t create real markets and they sure as hell don’t run real markets.
People and Government
People VERSUS Government
Quote of the year.
Gov. Robert Bentley filed tax returns showing he and his wife made $234,453 in 2012, and none of that was from a salary as Alabama’s chief executive.
Bentley promised in his 2010 campaign that he would not take a salary as governor until Alabama’s unemployment dropped to 5.2 percent. Unemployment has fallen from 9.3 percent when he took office to 7.2 percent, which means he’s getting closer to receiving a paycheck.
