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

Support Sen. Kennedy's minimum wage increase
John Edwards is working hard on the minimum wage, and today he's asking for us to sign a petition in support of Senator Kennedy's bill to increase the minimum wage to $7.25 in 3 increments.
As JRE says, it is totally ridculous that the minimum wage has been steady at $5.15 an hour for the last 10 years! It's not even indexed to inflation, so our lowest wage earners are making less and less every year in real terms.
