The minimum wage affects those who are unable to earn some arbitrarily-set cutoff price. Growth of any jobs that pay that much or more is entirely beside the point.

Statists like to pretend that they're helping the poor with law that says "here you go, you get to earn at least this much!", but what these statues really do is say is "UNLESS you can earn this much, no job for you!"

Everyone wants to make another Candy Crush or Flappy Birds game, and they'll be lucky to make minimum wage for the time they spend doing it. When I became a Mac developer in '84, and when I switched to NeXTSTEP in '89, both were moves decidedly out of the mainstream.

There's no shortage of unmet needs that can be addressed with an iOS app, but if you don't take the time to figure out what they are, then of course you'll fail.

I'm sorry but the evidence just does not bear out your views at all. There is no compelling evidence that warm temperatures are bad for battery chemistry, in fact under laboratory tests the batteries last longer with fast charging and warm temperatures.

Go look at evtv.me. Those guys actually do the experiments.

The myth that nissan leafs have problems with warm temperatures is still not backed up by anything except for whining.

Almost right.

It's not about taxes, it's about spending.

Because when they spend, they'll come up with the money one way or another, indebt future generations, print money, sell government power.

But then again, take away the power to spend and you have a solution.

Or even better, just take away their power.
