Minimum wage

Dear Ken,

I got an email from the Obamites with a link to a poll on what the minimum wage should be. I, of course, typed in $0.00. I'd ask you to do the same and pass the link on to whomever is economically savvy enough to follow suit. Thank you.

Re: "Some quick notes"

Apologies for factual errors. On 1 March, about the time "Some Quick Notes" was being written a man was stabbed to death by a woman with a tattoo needle. This has been reported in the EPT news as the city's second murder. Additionally it appears murder of an infant occurred under my radar. The child was shaken to death. Charges were filed ca. 25 February.

Please note that is still only 2 murders in just over two months. Compare to DC's 22 murders in the same time. Also please note that neither murder was committed with firearms. Gun control laws could not have prevented them.

Gun control doesn't work. Hell, even knife control could not have saved the stabbing victim. These laws are indeed victim disarmament and nothing more.

In the news, the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, an autonomous parliamentary republic within Ukraine, governed by the Constitution of Crimea, (according to Wikipedia) has decided to secede from the Ukraine to become part of the Russian Federation.

The Russians support this.

Where does this leave the Chechens who want to leave the Russian Federation?

Why won't the Russians let them to do the same sort of thing in the other direction?

No-one is asking this question on the news reports that I see.

Is this another reason to regard Nation States as schizophrenic, or should it be a further sign that they are criminal?

(They seem to feel 'What's mine is mine. What's yours is mine!)

If they were consistent I'd be able to respect their applied behavior even though I think it is based on a self-serving ideology.
