Ron-Paul

A forfeit or concession is an automatic loss and all seven points for voting should be given to the other person. 3. No semantic...

markuswashere

So, lately fast food employees have been rioting for a $15/hour wage. I think this is ridiculous. First of all you flip burgers and make fries for a living.

If these wages are accepted, I would be making more than my mom does working at the public library. I'm a teenager in hi...
