No. The for-profit wars go on and on. They rob us and kill them and then they kill us. The criminal cabal in charge of all this is the real enemy.

Yes, clearly, minimum wages have not kept up to anything close to inflation since I worked for minimum wages as a teenager 40 years ago. Not even close!

Increasing the minimum wage will cause several things to happen:

-1- Many people will lose their jobs, especially those who need it the most, like students paying for scholarships, immigrants and the poor.
-2- Prices will go up. The money has to come from somewhere -- that means from you, the consumer. Get ready to pay even more for almost everything.
-3- Taxes will go up. Most minimum wage earners who lose their jobs will end up on welfare, instead of contributing to society. And you will pay for it, as always.
-4- Service will get even worse. Get used to waiting in line or on the phone even longer, with fewer customer service employees than ever.
-5- Businesses will fail. Already clobbered by regulations, crushed with taxes, screwed by banks, targeted by frivolous lawsuits and extorted by unions before they even start to compete, businesses struck by artificially inflated wages will either fold or export ever more jobs to China in an attempt to survive.

As with any attempt at social engineering, increasing the minimum wage will have the opposite effect of what was intended. It will be a huge blow to our struggling economy. Instead, why not attempt to tax, limit or control the MAXIMUM wage? No country outside the U.S. allows corporate CEOs to plunder hundreds of millions of dollars from their own companies as a reward for exporting jobs. Of course, that would require some real political will â¦

Mayor Sahli-Wells is a wonderful facilitator, communicator, and innovator for city government. She did a exemplary job of representing her constituents in Culver City and of putting the city on the map nationally in the most favorable light possible. She has become a model for what a more responsive, responsible, and engaging person can do in what has heretofore been largely a ceremonial position. Future mayors now have a clear standard of excellence to live up to. Great job, Meghan!

Mayor Meghan did a fine job and tried her hardest to promote ideas and efforts that were based on the needs of the many. I wish she had had more backing and support from other council memebers.

Since 2009 Culver City has been allowing billboards on the mall that do NOT conform with the Design For Development (DFD). Two current sitting Council Members voices are heard in the 2009 video but yet they allow billboards and want to study more?! https://youtu.be/r1pjE1ow2LY

Take one look at Westfield Fox Hills Mall to get an idea of what billboards look like (these eyesores were brought to you by Scott Malsin). The absence of billboards is one of the few niceties we get in exchange for paying the highest property taxes, the highest sales taxes, the highest utility taxes, etc. Whichever local leaders are behind this abominable idea should be apologizing to Culver City, on their knees.

Mayor Meghan Sahli-Wells once commented that when there are no billboards in your city you just feel better and she is exactly right. It is delightful to live in a city where you are not accosted by billboards, messages, and advertising. It makes a lovely difference. It would be a big change in Culver City's pleasant atmosphere to allow billboards.
