Latinos are less optimistic about the economy than other groups. Patch file photo.

The best thing for them is to get a decent education, at least a high school diploma, then go on toRead More get at the minimum an AA Degree and Bachelors. This business about raising the minimum age isn't going to cut the mustard over the long haul. Those are entry level jobs more suited for high school kids like I did many years ago or college kids working their way through school. If they think raising the minimum is their long term solution, then they will remain at the bottom rung of the economic ladder for a number of years.
MFriedrich July 22, 2014 at 12:12 pm
The problem is that there is no conclusive evidence that demonstrates how raising minimum wageRead More creates more employment opportunities (i.e. "creates more jobs") for a community or for a selected economy. Unless a business or sector is growing substantially, paying employees significantly more results in higher wages, but also reduces profits, capital and almost certainly drives higher prices to make up profit shortfalls. In addition, does anyone else question the purpose of polling 500 individuals across the US? This seems like a woefully insufficient sample size to draw meaningful conclusions about economic outlook. There's no link to the poll data, but if 70% of 500 polled are minimum wage earners then that would affect the results of the poll. Conversely, if 70% were well educated, skilled, talented, gainfully employed, higher earners, results and conclusions would be different. It seems no journalist, including those at LF Patch, questions the value of La Raza asking a group of people who are somehow economically disadvantaged in the US economy whether they believe they believe they are disadvantaged in this economy, or not. In short, rhetorical polls are a worthless endeavor, unless you are buying votes.

I think this is so unfair and just goes to show you what a shrill, awful wife can do. She would haveRead More grown up and into old age beins g a tailor park tramp if it were not for Donald. Some gratitude. That's how women are generally in these situation. Best not to marry and give women like Shelly power to ruin your life. Te former owner of the Dodgers went through the same drama as Donald and an awful, shrill wife. Straight men take notice. Do not get married. Marriage ONLY benefits women & children. Nothing about marriage benefits men unless however the female s the money maker ie Kevin Federline and his marriage to singer Britney Spears. His lawyers turned the tables on the queen on pop music.

Jeffe' July 19, 2014 at 11:09 pm
Fact: People are wrongfully convicted. Even 1 innocent person wrongfully executed is too much, theRead More fact that you are ok with that says a lot about how little you actually have thought about this. How many bad guys do we need to kill to make it ok to execute 1 innocent man? 100 to 1? 20 to 1? 1 to 1? If you think that death is the only effective deterrent to crime that matters then are also very confused. Do you really think that it is pointless to put anyone in prison, probation, or fine them, since death is the only deterrent that matters? I encourage you to actually think about your position and how you arrived at that. Killing out of emotion (revenge) in no way makes murder ok. Killing in revenge is the ultimate sign of weakness. It takes strength to hold your rage and remain a civil thinking person. I couldn't care less about revenge and consequences. The criminal justice system is about the safety of our citizens, not vengeance. Locking someone up for life is enough because it removes a killer from his potential victims. It also costs the tax payers less money than killing them. Being in favor of a policy of executing people is also incompatible with belief in Christ, and when 70% of this nation claims to be Christian it should give you a good idea how many are full of shit that this is even a debate. Bottom line: No, your immature and selfish desire to kill people does not make it ok. It does not make us safer. It solves nothing. It wastes more tax dollars, and we have and will again execute innocent people because juries and judges are composed of people, and people are fallible. If you are ok with all that you should be locked away from the rest of society where you can do no harm. Sorry for the rant, long day and I keep seeing this subject brought up everywhere I look due to the court's decision. Thank you all for letting me get this out of my system =)

This lawsuit will never make it into a courtroom. And that's exactly how she and her lawyer want it.Read More The bus company will instead settle for some huge amount out of court. Why? Because that will still be cheaper than the cost of fighting it in court. That's the huge flaw in our system, and that's why there are thousands of bogus claims filed every day.
