    When is he going to learn that in negotiating, you go in with a large demand and then compromise from that? Rather than start low and get less. Sheesh!!!

    Silence with a yawn or two accompanied this thrilling announcement

      $20 an hour minimum wage.  Progressive site, right?  Mostly not trolls or RW types.  The entire comment thread was mansplainin' the damage to small businesses, the end of small business in America, the foolishness of government setting arbitrary numbers, and more.  Given that I'm guessing Obama's smart enough not to START with a figure that progressives can't unite behind.  It's called politics not mysticism.  I'm still in the $20 an hour position but have zero hope that could happen.  

      I'm not looking for a love that will lift me up and carry me away. A love that will stroll alongside and make a few amusing comments will suffice.
