An e-mailer asked about my position on raising the federal minimum wage. I answered the question as a light rain was beginning to fall.
3 days agoChristopher Young Can you hear the giant sucking sound of robotics replacing all these deserving minimum wage earners?
Coming soon folks.
It's called an education. Get one.
3 days agoDanny Mastel Mr. Cramer your facts are way off. The average age of someone making minimum wage is 35 and 88% are over the age of 20 according to the Center for Economic and Policy Research. This basically makes your biggest argument invalid. Not sure where you got your "most recent study" about Seattle losing 5,000 jobs. U Cal Berkeley recently had a study stating that the impact of the minimum wage increase in Seattle has shown payroll to increase.
3 days agoTrent Luther Won't be voting for you again. Everyone seems to be ok with people in the lower class living pay check to pay check. As soon as they push for a bare minimum raise y'all immediately find all sorts of reasons why it's a bad idea.
3 days agoJohn Aron Trandem The free market is perfectly capable of establishing the 'minimum wage' on a case-by-case basis. The Federal Government does not have the Constitutional authority to impose wage requirements upon American citizens. If we were to qualify every Congressional action against the Constitutional authority to do so you guys would have much more free time!
3 days agoJair Nicholas Thomas Peltier Kevin tell that to the single mothers in Bottineau County making 8-9 dollars an hour. I'm sure their "start up job" will put food on the table. You want people to stop using so much welfare but you refuse to put them in a position to support themselves.
3 days agoNaomi Chaffee Minimum wage jobs are NOT suppose to be careers. You get paid like 13$ at Mcdonalds to flip burgers? That's ridiculous.
3 days agoCarl Clemetson Great use of social media. It's completely annoying to have letters sent (after you say don't send) or just not get a response from the office. This bridges the gap and think it's a great use of both the time and medium.

14 weeks agoJon Acord These politicians just don't get that they are there to serve the people... they often sell the American people out to corporate interests because they benefit financially AND gain favor with the Uber Rich. We need to put checks and balances in place to directly fire and jail politicians that work against the people.
14 weeks agoJulie Olson I will work very very hard to see you lose your job in 2018 because of that cruel, draconian health care bill, which was basically a tax break for the wealthy on the backs of the poor, elderly, disabled, and sick in this country. There is no excuse for offing tens of thousands of North Dakotans from health care plans and Medicaid. I am one of those people! No excuse!!!

"It was once said that the moral test of government is how that government treats those who are in the dawn of life, the children; those who are in the twilight of life, the elderly; and those who are in the shadows of life, the sick, the needy and the handicapped."

36 weeks agoMark Valverde Whether you believe in climate change or not noone can deny that the constant emissions from fossil fuels is harming our planet. Combmbustion of fossil fuels produces air pollutants, such as nitrogen oxides, sulfur dioxide, volatile organic compounds and heavy metals. Carbon dioxide is also produced, some of which is absorbed by our oceans making them more acidic. If we really do care about our children and our children's children we have to be responsible enough to find and apply solutions to these serious problems. In 2011 Mark Z. Jacobson, professor of civil and environmental engineering at Stanford University, and Mark Delucchi published a study on 100% renewable global energy supply in the journal Energy Policy. They found producing all new energy with wind power, solar power, and hydropower by 2030 is feasible and existing energy supply arrangements could be replaced by 2050. Barriers to implementing the renewable energy plan are seen to be "primarily social and political, not technological or economic". They also found that energy costs with a wind, solar, water system should be similar to today's energy costs.

36 weeks agoStephen Butterfield How dare you call unarmed Men, Women, and Children criminals for using their first amendment rights! YOU are the true criminal here. I've read about what you've done to your own constituents. They might not understand it, but the people of the United States do, don't bother running next election. Those who liked you before will view you as too weak and ineffective, and those who dislike you now will make sure of your defeat. Your career of selling out your constituents is over.

Every NFL stadium has 50,000 - 100,000 active wireless devices capable of receiving real-time, false information. Shouldn't the NFL explicitly warn its fans that legitimate emergency evacuation orders would NEVER be delivered via their personal cell phones?
Reason being, if something like this were to happen... it's almost certainly a malicious hoax designed to create a stampede. Hint: official stadium evac orders come from the public address system in tandem with the video monitors. NOT CELL PHONES.
Just some common sense, public safety info that nobody's allowed to talk about. The federal government and private industry won't go anywhere near this generic cyber-security threat... unless there's a tragedy first. This is not complex. It's merely the modern, technological equivalent of shouting FIRE in a crowded theater.

39 weeks agoPeter Dublin On Regulatory reform - A Light Bulb Moment, Kevin? https://www.facebook...ps/bulballiance/ A bill to re-legalize simple cheap popular bright broad spectrum - and comparatively safe - American Edison light bulbs? Generic, patent expired and licence free, easily made locally by small firms for local jobs and sales, compared to today's considerable imports of complex alternatives. Local environmental sustainability of simple bulbs not using up earth minerals, or need of all the transport and recycling of alternatives. Supposed savings of CFL or LED alternatives don't hold up either, on complete life cycle comparison all the way from component mineral mining to final recycling - and from evening off-peak power plant operative factors and usual benefit of supposed heat waste when it's dark and cold, along with several other factors as listed and referenced: http://freedomlightbulb.org GE and other major company government advisers were promotional and supportive of the ban on simple light bulbs for profit reasons, as covered by Senate Hearing consultant Brandston and others, also referenced
