Obama will not relent until he squares the inequities of social justice as he perceives it.

Raising the minimum will certainly NOT do it. On the contrary, it will join the rest of the Barry moves which have accelerated the separation between the haves and have-nots in our country. As the prosperity of doctors, lawyers, engineers and other skilled contributors goes up, the state of unskilled, functionally illiterate low info voters goes down. So these last vote for more of the same. Go figure. Since they look to gov't for relief, as gov't fails them more and more, they will feel cheated and look for someone to blame. I hope they are smart enough to blame the very gov't they voted for. If they blame "the rich" as Barry encourages, its going to be a bumpy ride.

Or destroys the country trying -- whichever comes first.

By far the best line from this week's dueling State of the Union messages came from Florida Sen. Marco Rubio. Nice and simple, and right to the point:

"Presidents in both parties -- from John F. Kennedy to Ronald Reagan -- have known that our free-enterprise economy is the source of our middle-class prosperity."

That's a brilliant summary of pro-growth policies, on the supply-side and in a free-market context.

Kennedy slashed tax rates and held down the budget. So did Ronald Reagan, who borrowed Kennedy's ideas: smaller government, lower tax-rate incentives and a thriving middle class, where the economic pie grows ever larger....
