"Paul Ryan has summited about 40 of Colorados 50+ 14000 foot peaks"

I knew Ryan had a lack of oxygen to his brain. That explains it. Just goes to show how much free time congress has.The selfish prick should have been working for his constituents. Ryan is a lazy, freeloader. He's been on the govt gravy train since he was 22 yrs old. He's a govt lifer that can't make it in the real world.

Ryan is one psychopathic bastard. He's touted as "the young blood on the hill", who has "the Guts" to make the tough decisions. "The man with the plan". I don't think robbing sick, poor, old people of their security takes courage.

I will believe Ryan has courage when he kicks down Bernanke's door and tells the Fed the scam is over ! Don't hold your breath, 'cause it's never gonna happen.

Look at Ryan when he gives a speech about "saving" medicare/SS. He knows he's stealing from the weak, and if you look real close you will see him crack a little condescending smirk. He's one sick pup.

"Paul Ryan And The Fountainhead", by Uri Avnery :

"Ayn Rand, it was said, was one of the main inspirations for his particular philosophy. Since Ryan is being represented not as an ordinary, run-of-the-mill politician, like Mitt Romney - but as a profound political and economic thinker, the inspiration deserves some scrutiny."

Wow, how empathetic and noble. Did you feel good spouting that tripe? Instead, start a business and pay your staff $25/hr. Actually do something instead of spouting platitudes.

[-] 4 points by jrhirsch (4714) from Sun City, CA 2 years ago

One more business paying $25 an hour will help a handful of people. Educating the thousands of people on how underpaid they are compared to the $100K that they each produce on average is infinitely more productive.

And your rival down the street will be paying minimum wage and undercutting you on price and you will be bankrupt in a few weeks.

People have proven price is king and that means low wages for unskilled labor.

[-] 5 points by jrhirsch (4714) from Sun City, CA 2 years ago

Negotiation is the key to a fair wage. Any CEO, talk show host, or sports star knows it. Once the majority of people understand they receive just a quarter of what they contribute to GDP, unions will form and bargain to get a decent slice of the economic pie just as they did in the mid 20th century.

[-] 0 points by TheRazor (-329) 2 years ago

Plus I have seen in person how this works. 2 high school friends used to have a small machine shop/ foundry that produced specialized parts for diffrent industries in Los Angeles,CA. They made a good living, employed 25 guys at good wages. One day a guy came to them and said he could produce equal quality parts at a foundry in China for half the cost, delivered right to their door. My friends held for a year but eventually had to lay off their entire workforce except for one who did shipping and receiving. They marked up the parts 20% and made a killing, for awhile, tripling their income. Howver the buyers figured out to simply go direct to another Chinese foundry and my friends simply clsed the doors, rich, but still.

[-] 2 points by jrhirsch (4714) from Sun City, CA 2 years ago

But that has nothing to do with negotiating for better pay. Wages are not based solely on supply and demand. If that was true, agents and unions would not exist. There would be no need for them. The market would have the final say.

Once the lower skilled workers realize that their skills are valuable, they will begin to demand higher wages. They can do this because we know that GDP produced per worker is a little over $100,000. There is ample room for a $15,000 a year worker to make double.

What I don't understand is why intelligent people, who have access to the figures of just how much the top 1% make, then defend those same wealthy people who also under pay them.

Do you have a college degree? Even a person with a Doctorate or Masters has not had much of an increase in income over the last 40 years. The inflated dollars have increased seven times, but the actual amount in real dollars has not increased more than 10-20%. Productivity has increased 80%, but the very people most responsible for that increase only shared a fraction.

[-] 0 points by TheRazor (-329) 2 years ago

I would be a poor example. I Have taken some of my savings and purchased single family homes and I rent those out. When iretire, i hope to have a $20-30k retirement montyly income and when I was young i scrimped together enough money to buy a small commercial building that I was able to trade up into a pretty nice well rented larger building.

I also understand hard numbers, understanding of which is in very short supply here. If we took every single cent earned and owned by the 1%, confiscated their entire net worth, It would hardly touch our national debt.

Productivity gains have come from the use of computers and machines, not from more productive workers. Smart men and women who understand and own the machines have flourished. Lets take retail clerking as an example: 40 years ago, a retail clerk was measured by her efficiency in reading the price of an item, punching it into a cash register and ringing up a gallon of milk. Now they just scan a bar code. No one really needs a clerk anymore, most stores have self service check out stands. Productivity is sky high, but human labor has diminished in value. Lowes and Home Depot, same thing.

I personally employ 15 workers. I set out their potential career track from day one. I start them as unskilled rock bottom grunts at $11/hr. If they organize their lives, show up for work consistently, be on time, and learn in their jobs, in 3 years they should be making $17-22/hr. I started a new enterprise, and I am on my 3rd set of employees! I have done this several times, and my last effort, which i sold, is a money making machine and all the employees are Hispanic women, making at least $18/hr. They area its located in is mixed and I tried to use mostly black employees but they were worthless. The Latinos drove them out. I am in a upper class white area now, and slowly but surely, the staff is moving to middle aged white women.

[-] 2 points by jrhirsch (4714) from Sun City, CA 2 years ago

What would you do if your employees started a union and began asking for higher wages? Is there room for negotiation?

[-] 0 points by TheRazor (-329) 2 years ago

Higher wages? My top employees at my last enterprise makes $27/hr plus medical. This for women born in Jalisco mexico with high school education or less.

I would fire them.

[-] 1 points by jrhirsch (4714) from Sun City, CA 2 years ago

And you would be breaking the law. Every worker has the right to belong to a union and to ask for an increase in wages.

$27 an hour is relatively good pay. But should education decide income? Ask Mark Zuckerberg, Steve Jobs, and BIll Gates. All college drop outs. All billionaires.

Actually your wages seem to be higher than average. The median income for all American workers is just $26K a year, about $12.50 an hour. Even your grunt pay is far above minimum wage and closer to the median level.

But getting back to the question, if you were forced to pay higher wages, your income would be reduced. That is exactly what needs to happen to get our economy back on it's feet. The middle and lower income workers are struggling because so much of their labor is being siphoned off by the wealthy.

Like a cow that's been milked for decades, the farmer is now draining it's blood as well. That farmer will eventually kill the cow that supports him and lose his own livelihood if he isn't careful.

Let's not forget what money really is. It represents the labor of human beings. And when one person can own the collective labor of thousands of human beings working for years, any rational person should be able to see the injustice.

Oprah made $165 million in the last year. The equivalent of six thousand employees working an entire year for $28K. I just don't see how the service she provided was worth that much labor.

[-] 1 points by TheRazor (-329) 2 years ago

You dont understand at all. All your idea would do is redistribute the same pie. I have less they have more but its a zero sum game. Whether I spend it or they spend it is irrelevant. What needs to happen is to increase the pie. And people should be positioned to grab some of the pie.

[-] 1 points by jrhirsch (4714) from Sun City, CA 2 years ago

Yes, my idea is to redistribute the pie. It's irrelevant who spends the money? Try supporting yourself on $26K and then tell me how irrelevant an extra $20k would be.

The pie has increased 80% over the last 40 years and guess who was positioned to grab an unfair portion? The top 10% took 50% of the pie.

This whole discussion revolves around what should be fair. What is so difficult to understand? The most selfish take a greater share and the less selfish take a smaller share.

[-] 0 points by TheRazor (-329) 2 years ago

No, they wont. Once the labor cost is too high, the jobs will be out sourced to a lower wage country. The mid 20th century was a window in time where America was the only country with an industrial base. On top of that robots and machines do a better job at many of those 20th century jobs.

One of the highly skilled jobs that has been destroyed by machines was the machinist, the guy who used cutting tools to form parts. CAD driven cutting tools guided by laser precise computers have run humans off the charts. That was a very highly paid, value added job and expecting a line cook at a Burger King, which is a very low value added cog to be equally paid is foolish and stupid.

[-] 2 points by jrhirsch (4714) from Sun City, CA 2 years ago

They can't out source Walmart and Burger King and many other localized jobs. If they could out source more, they already would have. $7.25 an hour versus $2.00 an hour is a huge incentive, but quality, shipping, and speed are huge disincentives.

A low skilled employee like a cook is still a human being and deserves a decent wage. If he is underpaid, then the government has to step in with it's safety net of food stamps, health care, and unemployment. Wouldn't it be better to pay him a living wage and eliminate the extra expense of inefficient government services?

3D Printing will greatly reduce jobs in the coming decades. Once perfected, factories will be closing all over the world. Instead of ordering a part from China, a blueprint for the part could be e-mailed to you and you can Print the 3D part in house. No factory workers, not shipping, packing or other ancillary jobs. Once evolved people could have a potential mini factory in their house or business. Capable of manufacturing millions of their own objects and products.

Related human jobs will plummet.

You consistently suggest other people do something and yet you moon and drool over Paul Ryan for climbing some mountains. Big fucking deal. I'd rather see him handing out food to the poor and taking the recommendations of his professed Lord and Master, Jesus Christ, to heart and actually doing something to help his fellow humans to a better life, rather than helping the wealthy elite rob even more.

He's a pharisee; a traitor to his faith and god, who hides behind a cloak of religiousity and phony piety, to rob money right from the widow's hand.

Ryan is a pussy-ass chickenhawk. He's a big part of the problem that threw our country under the bus. Kissing political ass, fucking all of us because of his selfish political ambitions. Calling himself a staunch conservative and then hypocritically voting for all the unpaid wars and tax cuts for the 1%.

You idolize this asswipe for climbing mountains while he's fucking you. Pull your head out of his ass. Natural selection somehow missed you. You can make up for it, take out "TheRazor" and finish your pain.

You know Trev, I don't know why I have to explain this once again, but the division began in earnest, when Reagan repealed the Fairness Doctrine.

That division was pushed the hardest from the "right" through entities like FLAKESnews, Limbaugh, Drudge and all the rest.

It's only recently, that the "left" has responded much at all.

What you are calling a duopoly was actually an illusion, created by those that were profiting from that repeal.

Indeed it fits like a glove on the neolibe(R)tarian agenda, of pushing the teaching of Ayn Rand.

They do that all over the World among their fellow "industrialists".

You cannot fit the "duopoly" description the World over.

[-] 0 points by Stormcrow1 (-25) 2 years ago

Let me ask how many jobs has this country lost during the reign of the Obama Administration - no one wants to talk about that but the truth of the matter is if he created as many jobs as he claims the unemployment should be around 5%.

How come it isn't - could it be because we have more people losing jobs?

[-] 1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 2 years ago

We lost millions of jobs during this Bush created "great recession" that started in late 2007. We lost about 7.5 million jobs (more than the last 4 recessions combined) during the Bush created great recession 12/2007-6/2009. Most of those job losses were during Bush admin. However, we were still losing jobs when Pres Obama took the Oath in 1/2009.

So the Bush job losses extended several months into Pres Obamas term and probably went as high as 2.5 to 3 million. Serious numbers.

As soon as Pres Obama recovery act passed (watered down by repubs) the Job losses slowed. We started creating jobs by the end of 2009 and have created Almost 5 million jobs since then.

So in fact although there were Bush created job losses of about 2.5 million during the1st few months of Pres Obama Term, His policies have created almost 5 million jobs and therefore Pres Obama has net job creation of about 2.5 million.

I believe the estimates are that we could have had an addition 3 million jobs if Repub didn't water down and obstruct the recovery act and other jobs bills. In addition repub controlled states have made an extra effort to fire as many public workers as possible. Treasonous wouldn't you say?
