Uneducated white men are the easy to control and manipulate. The world works so simply for them. Same? Good. Different? Bad. All black and white. Cro magnun idiocy. You speak loud, with crafty words? Me think it's true. Me believe you. Heck, it won Trump the last election. Just because people are stupid and ignorant enough to believe anything. Especially the right, where a vast number of their own friggin' poor and poverty ridden white male constituents are voting for candidates that are not in their best interests, because they're too stupid to know the difference..

Three years out from the election and everyday people are still asking, "how did "this" ever happen"? The answer to that, as the experts have said, is, UNEDUCATED WHITE MALES. And, I might add, they are also SEXIST.

A lot of people think that sending 21 trillion dollars to a few people reduces the amount of money available for everyone else but this writer is convinced that restricting this nations resources to the few makes us stronger.

Whenever the minimum wage rises, it's just amazing how all those supposed things Ambrose and other republicans claim will happen, never do. Seemingly it's more important to pinch pennies off the working, middle class, to make an elite few rich, than bring people out of poverty. But the most despicable part about the conservative right, is the misleading you, like Ambrose does here, into thinking it is in your own best interest to not get paid more. All so others can get rich off you. That's just thievery at its' simplest. And one can accuse just one man for being a loafer, and stealing off the system. But a rich corporate business man? Some steal enough for a thousand men alone. And they don't even need that extra money to survive.

This guy should be suspended and be sent back to Economics 101. What a political hack! First, if the minimum wage had been increased for the rate of inflation, it would be in the $10.50/hr, but that's beside the point. Anyone who is making a low wage will spend the majority of an increase on just surviving. That money spent on goods and services goes back into the economy increasing more jobs to supply the increased demand. Someone in the top income tax brackets that got Trumps tax cuts has most everything they need. The increased income either won't be spent or only spent in part. Send this bozo back to kindergarten.
