Daily Kos Debunks Minimum Wage Myths

The Daily Kos diarists have once again developed an innovative solution to a vexing problem:


The author of this entry, a justifiably angry (yet caring) person named "McJoan", is clearly a scholar of the highest caliber who knows how to fix problems! In fact, one can apply her prescription to other issues:

  • Societal Problem: People like George Will don't recognize what selling a used 1977 Buick for only $500 means.
  • DKos/McJoan/ProfK Solution: Make it illegal for poor people to sell a used Buicks for less than $10,000. Problem fixed!


  • Societal Problem: People like George Will don't recognize what selling dollar-store items for only one dollar means.
  • DKos/McJoan/ProfK Solution: Make it illegal to sell dollar store items for under $10. Problem fixed!


  • Societal Problem: People like George Will don't recognize what free access to Daily Kos means. (All that brainpower, and McJoan gets paid zero by her readers; talk about working for sub-minimum wage!)
  • DKos/McJoan/ProfK Solution: Make free access to Daily Kos illegal. Problem fixed!


I am pressuring the university’s administration, by legal action, to give three credits to any student who reads Daily Kos. Their government-subsidized tuition can be increased to cover the associated costs.
