    Right on about the minimum wage. However, I’d be suspicious of government job training. It almost never works and just turns into another bureaucratic layer. How about this idea – remove most licensing and certificating requirements to jobs? Allow employers, rather than colleges, to administer their own tests and training fashioned explicitly for the job?

    Excellent Ted Rall today! I’ll stay with cash were ever I can when I don’t want my purchases tracked.

    I hear all the time about people who voted for BHO turning against him. I hope it’s true. I’ve just never met one.

    Give me a break! The cost of a copy of one’s Birth Certificate would be too much? $15 is the price of a couple packs of cigarettes in most states. People could choose to forgo a few lottery tickets to be able to exercise their franchise. I’ll also bet there are a dozen Federal programs specifically designed to help these poor unfortunates get a FREE copy of their Birth Certificates.

    The democrats owned Gerrymandering up until the last few elections. Both sides gerrymander. How do you think minority districts are created? The ebb and flow of politics will balance it all out over time.

    Study the Age of Imperialism before you make such ignorant comments. We don’t conquer nations and enslave entire native populations. What’s wrong with you?

    Talk about not facing reality! Explain logically how there is no difference between big and small government. One taxes 50% of the productive citizen’s income and one taxes 2%. One regulates toilet flushes and lightbulbs and one regulates weights and measures. Large dinosaurs took 5 minutes to figure out they’d been killed by a small one. Large government is ineffective. Small government is effective. How can you not see it?

    I know. I know. I come off as an a$$-hole. I can’t help it. I spent a career teaching. All suggestions are made to be instructive. Learn from them without getting defensive.

    SizeofaPea, you’ve forgotten all your high school/college writing instruction. Brevity is the soul of wit. Truly, if you want to make your points, shorten it up. A well constructed sentence isn’t a half a thought, but a whole one. It is only a witty one-liner if that is what your well constructed sentence intends. Look up the word verbose. This is all well-intended and constructive criticism. You have important things to tell us. Learn to tell us well.

    Surely you can’t argue that there aren’t many, many government programs that have outlived their intended missions? Just today, USA Today has an article on how many official emergencies are still on the books. The 1979 Iranian Hostage Crisis is still giving the Government emergency powers!!!!!! As you say, there is the rub. How do we determine “infrastructure”? Is it a bridge? Is it teacher salaries? Is it bike paths? We must find a way to make these decisions before the government swallows us all.

    My reply is that if government wasn’t big enough to award grants for every Senator’s or Congressman’s personal whim, government wouldn’t do it. No fitness centers, bike paths, unnecessary weapons systems, barber shops, etc. Government would be limited to defense of the country, infrastructure, disaster relief, etc.
