The second is just setting off a non-restrictive clause. E.g. the baker, whose cakes I've always enjoyed, came to see me
Honestly, I feel like I'm taking crazy pills. I thought it was a bit sketchy before what exactly the 2nd amendment meant, but specifying it with this addition really underscores the absurdity of the position.
Just give it time.....
About, say, twenty years?
That's what they are arguing against you, but I say to them that this assumes too much. For instance, if you are making minimum wage--whatever it is--and you find yourself with some money to spare, if you have any sense at all you will SAVE it, so that you have a rainy day fund or use it as capital toward getting/finding a better job!!! The arguments also ignore the fact that not everybody who WANTS a job NEEDS one that pays a living wage, like high school students in the summer. Instead of learning how to participate in the economy, young, unskilled, casual workers like these are generally priced out of the market. But the dark side to the issue is that some will enter the marker NONETHELESS, thus competing with those who ACTUALLY need to make enough money to live on. Then there is black market labor. I had a friend in high school who worked construction, hauling bricks, among illegal immigrants and people on welfare. Illegal labor has no minimum wage. Raising the minimum wage increases the black market for labor, thus giving companies with high demands for unskilled labor further incentive either to hire people illegally, move to a country where it costs less to hire people, or go out of business.
tl;dr: having a minimum wage means having a black labor market, and raising the minimum wage hurts those it is meant to help.
No, it's not very customizable. But I find its setup intuitive and functional. No, it's not graphically minimal, but computers are far more powerful now than they were even five minutes ago... Graphic simplicity used to be very important, then it was preferable, but now--I feel--it's okay to have a little eye candy. (Take my words with a grain of salt, though. I have become a casual user over the years.)
Still, they should have kept up Gnome2 the way people knew and loved it.
