    I went to the Obama rally in Fort Worth yesterday and I figured I'd post some pictures for those who might be interested in seeing them. The line was insane as you can see from the first few pictures. It stretched all the way around the building and a good bit away from it before they started snaking it through the streets.

    It was fun. Lots of good music, people doing the wave, loud cheers whenever they'd open up another section and of course, Obama.

    Yup. Gave lots of specifics too. They never show that stuff on TV though. It's a shame.

    A few off the top of my head:

    Raising the minimum wage to $7.80, which brings it up above the poverty level, and then evaluating it on a yearly basis to make sure it matches inflation.

    Giving $4000 a year in tax credits to go to college for those that are willing to donate 100 hours a year to community service.

    The whole "Google for Government" thing which would allow bills and other legislation that they're working on to be searchable so that you can keep tabs on what your elected officials are doing.

    Support of minimum wage is the strongest possible indicator that a person does not understand basic economics.

    It's a litmus test, as far as I'm concerned... kind of like buying lotto tickets is a powerful indicator that you don't comprehend statistics.

    It has been documented that the minimum wage is very effective in increasing the unemployment rate for the unexperienced and unskilled, who are primarily young adults (under 25 years old); and in particular, minority young adults.

    I mean, who's not for that?! [/sarcasm]

    This should get really interesting. :D I am guessing the poster doesn't have a clue as to McCain's past history in the Senate.

    Don't be for McCain if you are human and have a heart and soul? I mean how do you defend that comment? You flat out can't defend it, that's how.

    There have been studies on both sides which have supposedly "proven" each opposing theory.

    Yes it would, that's why this should be a state by state issue.
