New York became the first state Wednesday to authorize a minimum wage hike for tens of thousands of fast food workers. Fast food workers paid $8.75 an hour now would make $15 an hour by 2018. The minimum wage hike would apply only to fast food workers and the franchise owners say it’s unfair. But the state says it’s tired of subsidizing billion dollar corporations who aren’t paying their workers enough.

The so-called 11th Commandment, one much espoused by Ronald Reagan, reads “Thou shall not speak ill of any fellow Republican.” Of course, as is clearly evident, Donald Trump never followed that particular part of political scripture. And now that particular doctrine is slowly being abandoned by others in the GOP field of 2016, as they respond to, well, Donald Trump. Rick Perry calling Trump a cancer on conservatism. Lindsey Graham calling him a car wreck that could ruin the party. For now, Trump appears to relish the criticism. Politicos wonder if and when additional candidates will join the scrum.

It’s official. Donald Trump is heading to the Mexican-American border Thursday, where in Laredo he will address not only the media, but a meeting where the local law enforcement community there has been invited. Who otherwise intends to be part of the welcoming committee, remains to be seen. But one suspects Trump will have plenty to say. Jim will be on hand to preview the visit, and discuss the tsunami of attention Trump’s comments have brought to the immigration issue.

A federal appeals court Tuesday overturned some of the most sensational convictions that sent former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich off to a lengthy stint in prison, ruling prosecutors did not prove the Democrat broke the law as he appeared to try to auction off an appointment to President Barack Obama’s old Senate seat. However, 5 convictions vacated, 13 still stand, disappointing his lawyers. He is currently serving a 14-year sentence, and prosecutors believe its 50-50 whether the ruling decreases that sentence.

Ohio Gov. John Kasich became the 16th GOP candidate for president, laying out his platform for the campaign, and why he would be the best man for the job. That announcement however, was quickly overshadowed by Donald Trump, who was at his own event in South Carolina. And just one day after Sen. Lindsey Graham called Donald Trump a “jack***,” Trump retaliated by reading Lindsey Graham’s cell phone number from the microphone during a speech from the Senator’s home state. Trump also called Graham an “idiot” and a “lightweight,” adding that he “doesn’t seem like a very bright guy.” And President Obama did finally comment on the Trump candidacy, during a taped appearance on the Jon Stewart show.
