Friday, September 29, 2006 Do you recall when the neocons were justifying their war of aggression on Iraq and their subsequent military occupation of the country by saying, “The Iraqi people like our occupation because we’re bringing them peace and freedom”? Well, the Associated Press is reporting that 61 percent of the Iraqi people support attacks on U.S. troops in Iraq, including a majority of both Sunnis and Shiites. Eighty percent of them want the U.S. out of their country within a year. Eighty percent of Iraqis believe that the U.S. occupation of their country is provoking more violence than it prevents. Question: If an Iraqi supports the killing of U.S. soldiers in Iraq, doesn’t that make him a terrorist? And isn’t the mission of U.S. forces in Iraq to kill terrorists? Doesn’t that mean that U.S. forces will have to kill 60 percent of the population in Iraq to finally “win” the war on terrorism — or at least the ...

Monday, July 31, 2006 In a 230-180 vote, the House of Representatives voted to increase the minimum wage, a type of law that any reputable economist will tell you does nothing more than condemn people to unemployment. After all, look at the logic. No employer is required to hire anyone. It’s his business. He’s going to hire someone who he believes will be worth more to him than it costs to hire the person. Thus, if the law requires someone to pay $6 an hour, no employer is going to hire anyone whose labor he values at less than $6. So what happens to all the workers whose labor is valued in the marketplace at less than $6? They’re locked out of the labor market by a $6 minimum-wage law. So, how do they survive?
