In the News


Minimum Wage

There is a growing mood in America that putting a pickle on a bun is worth $15.00 an hour. Both Bernie and the Bitch of Benghazi are pushing for that. Because they are appealing to greed rather than common sense, the public eats that up. Sadly, there is no such thing as a free lunch and the people who will be hurt the worst are those least able to afford it.

The free market should decide how much any worker is worth. However since the minimum wage is likely to be an election issue this year, I expect that both parties will support raising it (bread and circus, right?).

Chick-fil-A

Mayor Bill de Blasio and members of the New York City Council are calling for a city-wide boycott of Chick-fil-A – urging citizens to refrain from eating plump juicy chicken breasts tucked between hot buttered buns. The president of the company said that marriage should be between a man and a woman (oh, the horror - let me flee to a safe space), and they are closed on Sunday. That alone is enough to raise the cry of BIGOTRY! However, they don't discriminate in hiring. There are long lines at both of New York City's Chick-fil-A restaurants. I'm sure that de Blasio's publicity of the restaurant chain is doing for them what the people waving Mexican flags is doing for Trump.

Convention Anguish

Mitt Romney, bitter hater, announced that he wouldn't be attending the GOP convention in Cleveland.  Neither is Jeb! We're all sure going to miss them...moving on. Paul Ryan isn't going either based on what he said today. He was a Romney acolyte.

Clintonistas

The progressive left's propaganda arm, the mainstream media, has perfected their use of the attack to demonize anyone (even chicken restaurants) who doesn't toe the political line that they set out. Bill Clinton had fathered children out of wedlock. There are persistent rumors about Chelsea being Web Hubble's daughter, but who knows? Hillary by all reports is a lesbian, and people who get in the way of the Clinton agenda end up disgraced or having their pictures mounted to the backs of milk cartons. The funny thing about the Clintons is that almost any foul thing you could say is true and documented. The progressives roll in that sort of filth because it gives them something to set their personal sights on - it's a goal post. 

I can't help but laugh as the pundits call for Hillary to "pivot" this way or that way in her opinions, which are formed by pollsters. I don't know that anyone knows what Hillary actually believes about any particular topic. We do know that she loves money and craves power.

It's oft said that Bernie Sanders is dragging Hillary to the left. If Bernie says something and people cheer, then Hillary feels obliged to do the same thing in the hopes of a cheer.

And that's what it has come to.

Then there are TWO CELLOS


They are playing the Clinton theme song aren't they?.

  1. When I was in the service in West Germany, I used to travel the approx. 40 miles to Munich from where I was stationed just to have a quarter pounder with cheese, an order of fries and...a beer at McDonald's.

    This was in 1976, and back then that meal was about $2 bucks in Eugene, Oregon, but cost me approx. $18 in Munich. Sure, the beer was a nice cultural touch, granted, but that is a microcosm of what happens to costs of things when the government mandates what employers should pay people to put a pickle on a bun.

    1. It's impossible to explain that to a prog, but you did lay out the perfect case study.

  2. I am anxiously waiting the time when handcuffs are applied to Hillary. But I am beginning to think she will skate on this, too.

    1. Huma has been interviewed and so have the rest of the flying monkeys. We'll know one way or the other very soon now.

  3. Hill is on a highway to hell, but whether we'll see it in this life that's what I'm questioning.

  4. BTW I think Monica is hoping for Hill to blow it.

    1. But the American leftists object to you going there (even though I suspect that the people from the Cowboy Church like Chick-fil-A).

    2. They do. And who can blame them? Apart from progleft gender diversity kommissars.

    3. Just the fact that Chick-fil-A is open and people are lickin' chicken is enough for some progressives to declare a micro-aggression and run for a safe space. Because it's being boycotted by the trannies and homosexuals, it's a family friendly place.

  6. Good to see you advertising Hill's tune. Nice one.

    1. They should play it before each of her speeches for full effect. I don't think that AC/DC would mind because Hillary herself is reputed to be gender-confused.

    2. I've heard that too. Hillary takes the moral low ground; I don't want to define it much further and get into a conversation with Yoko or Huma. I don't think you can blame me for that.

  7. They can have their $15/hr AFTER the military gets theirs... NOT BEFORE!

    1. I can't imagine ever giving the military an hourly wage. Given the round-the-clock nature of much of it, the nation would be bankrupt.

  8. As for the socialist college professors, it is do as I say, not as I do.

    Anyone who understood the free market would know that raising the minimum wage will put more people out of work. And if you try to explain it...

    But I think that is what the government wants. More people out of work, having to rely on the government to survive.

    Be safe and have a blessed weekend.

    1. If you rely on a hand-out to survive, you become a slave. In order to perpetuate the hand-out you need to vote for the Democrat.

  9. I just wish the Clinton crime family was the only Democrat crime family we had to worry about. If it weren't for Democrats, this country would be like a Tarahumara crime-free utopia.

    1. A plate of crow costs $15 in Seattle? Those foul(fowl) birds don't even taste that good. Too bad so many people are going to be forced to eat it this year!
