Mostly rational politics, with occasional rants about how a few crazy Republicans are ruining the country.

Democrats must make raising the minimum wage a central part of their platform
As DonkeyRising points out, raising the minimum wage is an INCREDIBLY popular position... 83% were in favor in a November Gallup poll (93% of Dems, 80% of Indys, 73% of Republicans). The Democratic Party would be so foolish not to make this issue (and potentially a broader effort to tackle poverty) a main part of their platform. It's been on the backburner for awhile... let's throw it out there. It speaks to what we believe in... a minimum standard of living for everyone who works.
