Another Day Older and Deeper in Debt

idollarFederal minimum wage: $5.15 hr.

Kansas minimum wage: $2.65 hr.! (We finally know what's the matter with Kansas...they're lost in a time warp.)

Minimum wage for Afghan mercenaries in exchange for their promise not to like bin Laden: $3.12 to $6.25

Enough irony to freeze that sneer on your face for posterity? Priceless.

Just so we're clear on this: we’re willing to pay aliens who hate us (and will betray us just as they did their neighbors during the last lucrative turkey shoot) more money than we’re willing to pay our own people to accomplish needed tasks and fuel the economy here in the U.S.

Because Christ knows, $7.25 an hour is going to break us, isn't it?
