For the case of minimum wage, its simple. I have to sell something for a cost greater than what i paid for it. This includes my labor cost. If my labor is mandated by law, i can only adjust my cost of product and my price to customer. At the end of the day, the cost of living for everyone increases. Minimum wage… » 10/29/14 4:26am Wednesday 4:26am

If i were an alien from outer space and i watched this video, i probably would not call this harassment. I would probably recognize the level of attention one women could command, simply by being a woman. I would then conclude, being a woman is a powerful thing. I mean, she gets the respect and compliments of total… » 10/28/14 11:50pm Tuesday 11:50pm

I live in Michigan, Never heard of a pasty in my life. Now we have two universally know dishes. The Polish Packi and The Coney Dog. The Coney dog is a modified chili dog, but the "chili" is a special Michigan recipe and is not really called chilli but "coney sauce".

Apparently the Marshall islands are a wash in lost bails of cocaine that wash up on shore. Since the 1990's, bails of the stuff have washed up and started a blackmarket cocaine economy that never existed before. They sell it locally for dirt cheap. Cocaine Island » 10/12/13 3:09am 10/12/13 3:09am

I agree, no matter how snazzy the 4-banger...you never get that low end monster power that makes you respect the right pedal. You can turn a Honda into a a 8-second car....it does not vindicate all uses of 4-bangers or FWD. I think the inline 5 or 6 is a good compromise, In the case for the I6, its perfectly balanced… » 10/10/13 4:31pm 10/10/13 4:31pm

I think people are allowing others to hide behind religion. Islam does not teach this....neither does Christianity.

No, you did it and you can't… » 9/25/13 12:21am 9/25/13 12:21am

Robocop 2014 Trailer : Did Detroit Imitate The Original Movie?

When the original Robocop hit the big screen, i was four years old. When i first seen the film on VHS, i was still way too young to understand most of it. I did not fully "get" the humor and the violence level could make my mother blush. As a film (that i watched over and over) if had a profound effect on my image of… » 9/05/13 11:17pm 9/05/13 11:17pm

How A NASCAR Pro Almost Made Me Hurl In A Ford F-150 Tremor

Ford invited members of the automotive media to take a first ride in the new Ford F-150 Tremor at Michigan International Speedway. They even invited professional wheelman and 2012 Sprint Cup Champ Brad Keselowski to hoon us around a bit. They should have done this before lunch. » 8/21/13 12:03pm 8/21/13 12:03pm
