Norway doesn’t have a minimum wage. Nobody here would work for the US minimum wage. Exporting all those fossil fuels does wonders for an economy. As does using income to establish a sovereign wealth fund for the good of the nation if you're going to enter into that discussion. Australia does have a...Jump to post
Not sure how removal of the minimum wage will help. Pretty simple—a minimum wage guarantees low productive people don’t get jobs; jobs that train work ethic, skills and socialization.

So what did Beto say? So we can't ban WMDs because one person loves them? Yeah, okay..... What is wrong with treating guns like cars and registering and insuring them? Making sure the owner is capable of owning guns like cars? That way, people can still own guns and be held responsible when their g...Jump to post
Biden will not do anything. Wyoming is deciding, as did Texas and Mississippi, to put their citizens at risk. People can still wear masks and avoid crowds if they feel they should. Just because businesses are open does not mean everyone should or wants to go. You left out Alaska, Arizona, Florida, ...Jump to post
I am seeing this problem on the West Coast. Damned if they do, damned if they don't. If they follow the advice of medical experts, righties make stuff up about how they are so oppressed and everything needs to open because (insert failed reason here) but when things do open and people get sick and ...Jump to post

It'll never happen. He might mandate it with regards to anything federal related but as far as a mandatory mask mandate, no way would it be effective or most likely legal. A mandate ordering citizens to wear a mask or quarantine during a pandemic is illegal? Doubtful. Just watch. The sates, which h...Jump to post

What did the West do to Muslims to cause such anger? I've been STRUGGLING to understand this since 9/11. You’re asking the wrong question. Your question is laying blame on the victims.

President Macron said in his speech that applying the rules to some people and not others according to age/illnesses would probably be unconstitutional, and would at least need some political debate first, which there is no time to do right now.

There's not going to be another shutdown. That didn't age well.

First, Non Av is far from a "left wing" echo chamber. There's too much hyperpartisan posting on both sides.

The USA should completely withdraw from the region and let local nations deal with China in their backyards. They can handle it themselves. First, the US has direct benefits on this sea (the trade,...), as well as US's allies. Second, how about the Mutual Defense Treaty between US and Phillipines ?...Jump to post

How could this be happening on the enlightened continent of Europe? This is 2020 not 1920. An actual violent revolution in a European nation! Do I smell a tad of irony here?
