    I'm not prepared to debate the arguments against the minimum wage (arguments that it is economically deleterious), but, "A full time worker earning the minimum wage lives below the poverty line," is a pretty strong argument.
    Indeed it is, and I'm really liking his words on education, science, technology, and energy.

    Kind of a snoozer...

    Anyone see him throw up the "smoke weed" gesture as he entered the room. Pretty awesome.
    It is difficult to free fools from the chains they revere.

    That's been signed.

    He said he signed a new cyber-security executive order.

    This just gave businesses another reason to cut hours and lay off, like Obama care didn't do enough of that

    Pretty sure I still pay $1 for a double cheese burger, and my state has the highest minimum wage in the country.

    What were those people chanting when he brought up gun control laws? The majority were ecstatically clapping, but the clapping was drowning out some group that was chanting something. What was that all about?
    Isn't it immature that you call him Donald "Dump"?
    I agree, it's childish and stupid - and that's my point. it's meant as a deliberate mockery of his blatant disrespect via using "Crooked Hillary", and thus I can call him "Dump" since he dumps his campaign promises, dumps campaign managers, dumps his wives, wants to dump the first amendment, dumps common-sense war ethics and dumps the use of proper English in favor of a mongrel white-trash dialect.

    Unless he plans on increasing spending on education, increase funding to NASA, do something sensible about the out of control military budget (unless he plans to continue the fear mongering to keep everyone scared), legalize marijuana or just stop the senseless war on drugs altogether, spend on infrastructure, has a sensible plan to cut spending, do something about the mental health issue we have, and really do something about healthcare. Then it is all just more of the same as any other president. No real change, just band-aids because they don't have guts to make changes we really need.

    Not sure, glad he didn't go down the whole "We must ban guns" route, and instead just advocated for better control. Which, I'm in favour of (but, never outright banning).

    you mean more tax payer money going to the teachers unions so they can give it right back by contributing to democrat campaigns and more tax money to pay back his buddies in the failed green energy businesses for them contributing to his campaign

    Care to make an argument, without resorting to conspiracy theories?
