So you think Limbaugh is "out of step with the majority of Americans", do you? The fact that his radio show is #1 by a LONG margin puts the lie to that contention. I would wager that you don't even know what he says on his shows. You shouldn't comment unless you know even a little of what you speak.
So the people with such feelings for the poor have decided that anyone who can't produce at least $15 worth of goods and services every hour has no right to a job. A company can't afford to pay more than the value of production and still remain in business. Another way I look at it is that instead of millions of jobs at $7.25 an hour, they want hundreds of jobs at $15 an hour.
Socialism will actually work this time. The people in charge now are way smarter than the people who were in charge of socialism before.

Exactly.
We do have some great people. Alfonzo Rachel is one example. But getting his word out there remains a problem. Check him out at http://alfonzorachel.com/
It isn't just the fuzzy math they use in calculating the unemployment rate. They're also using bogus numbers calculating the inflation rate. They say the current inflation rate is about 2%, but I know I'm paying about twice as much for groceries now as I did in 2008.

I'm a little unclear about something. When you say, "...even though the average value of a single-engine piston airplane flying today is less than the cost of a new bass rig. " are you talking about a flat bottom boat and a good set of tackle, or are you talking about a Gibson Thunderbird with an Ampeg SVT?
We have a better response. The problem is that the electorate has been dumbed down such that they can't understand the short version, and their attention span is too short to listen to the long version.
I was going to say something about the 16th and 17th amendments, but you said it better.

It ain't just farmers. Have you looked at that crew fixing/paving that road? Look at new home construction. Conditions on that hot roof are like home to the workers. Janitorial staffing no longer speaks English. The list goes on. And Mike Rowe proved that there is no such thing as a job Americans won't do.
