    I think you will only get better if YOU decide. So ok you can't eat out every nite , big deal. There a million jobs at the Gulf. People are vacationing and having a time. You people are goin to worry yourself into a horrible daily life. Enjoy what you have even if its just loved ones. I'm better because in this mess of a government I found my family and spending time with them. Find what makes you happy instead of grumping around , it helps nothing. Dang and i'm a conservitive Rep. https://mythoughtsandmedotcom... government family spending happy grumping helps dang conservitive rep httpsmythoughtsandmedotcom

    It could be worse

    Nothing has changed in my life. I'm still free to do as I please, I still have money, I eat three meals every day, still have insurance, and now I have vision insurance which I didn't have before. But I am certainly happier now that the election is over and that the President was reelected.

    No not by a long shot. My paycheck has shrunk, thanks to obamaflation. Food, gasoline and other prices have shot sky high. My health insurance premiums have doubled and that;s just the beginning.

    My wife and I are much worse off now than we were four years ago. Most likely, welfare mothers and other moochers are better off with Obama as president.

    Things that affect me daily have all cost more.....Gasoline went for $2.50 to $3.75

    If he's running for the highest office in the world, want to be the executive over this nation's government, and ultimately his signature make policy and law the YEAH, you bet your ass his tax returns are my business. For all I know he could be doing business with drug cartels and organized crime. Which would pretty much be par for the course for a republican anyway.

    Now that he's just another citizen, I don't give a crap and don't care if I see him or his tax returns ever.

    Well I'm happy for you. YOU may have it like that but too many who work their asses off just as hard or even harder don't. You can best bet the owner of a McDonald's or Denny's don't pay a cook, cashier, or waitress $4 grand a month. And when they are assessed for higher rent/leasing and utilities, etc... I can bet you that they're more than happy to pass that "expense of doing business" on to the consumer of their product. 401K is a scam anyway, if your boss had gave you a "pension" then that would be different. But that's the problem with you people, you consider simply wanting to be treated fairly "begrudging". Don't get it twisted, no one is knocking anyone for attaining wealth or being so, it's the fact that the norm as become to get more and more wealth at the expense of someone else getting the short end of the deal. There's a word for that and it's called GREED, and it's running a muck in business today, especially in the corporate and conglomerate sectors.

    Once again, happy for you. I also believe you, living in Texas I see on a daily basis brainless, uneducated morons who aren't worth their employment in pesos, the majority of which exploit the "good 'ol boy" network to despicability. I also see many who do their jobs, do them well, perform beyond expectations and are a direct cause of higher productivity and still keep the same crappy non-living wage 15 years later that they started with. Speaking for myself, I've earned two degrees, also work very hard, and thus I'm what's called an asset to the company I work for, as well as my own business. Just because our particular situations are good, there simply too many that are dire when they don't have to be and it's all because of wanton greed. Please excuse me if I care about more than just me, myself, and I.

    LOL!!! I know what you mean, and it's true these kids don't value employment because many of them are still under mommy and daddy's roof and aren't responsible for themselves yet.

    But there are many adults who are responsible, and do those jobs well and diligently. I'd say the living wage law should be that if you're an "adult" especially with a single dependent or more, then YES pay them a decent living wage of $23/hr. But anyone 18 and under still in school living with parents, the minimum wage pocket change, "the least I'm allowed by law to pay you wage" would apply. I don't think it's that hard of a problem to solve.
