The NYC minimum wage hike
is going to screw over workers

New York Post, by John Aidan Byrne

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 1/13/2018 10:14:07 PM

One in two New York City workers may soon be underemployed and in economic pain. The city is now teeming with a vast hidden underclass of underemployed workers who don’t show up in official government statistics: More than 1.6 million people, or a staggering 45 percent of the local labor force, are struggling because they don’t have enough hours in their work week, (Snip) “These new results underscore the fact that low-income New Yorkers don’t need just any job. What they need are good jobs that will provide enough hours, pay a living wage and help them move out of poverty,” said Steven Lee, a managing director at

Comments:
$15 an hour for all the poor workers is what the dRATS have been clamoring for as federal law´s new minimum wage. Trump gets it for them by his new tax bill, many getting raises and bonuses almost immediately, and now this fly in Chuckie Schumer´s ointment. HA! Be careful what you "demand". This is going to get interesting and ugly when the weather warms up. Hidden workers is code for illegal aliens within the sanctuary city. Imagine all those unskilled dRATS lead "chain immigrants" also coming in without hope to immediately up their lack of education. Kalifornia watching?

The democ rats can´t let these people get jobs that, as Mr. Lee says, would help them move out of poverty. In poverty is where the rats want to keep them. Mr. Lee doesn´t seem to realize that.

Forcing a higher and higher minimum wage only increases the wages of the unions and decreases the value of the dollar. This will increase the numbers of the underclass. This is all liberal democrap utopia.

It´s truly a wonder why that communist de Blasio doesn´t confiscate by eminent domain every single business owned by whitey so he can turn around and give it to a minority to show more diversity.

All you NYers currently earning a meager living, watch for your taxes to skyrocket to pay for even more welfare.

The $15/hr minimum wage caused cutbacks in the hours on many no-skilled workers. And this was in dark blue Seattle.

As is always the case, Dem leftists are soft hearted, soft headed economic imbeciles.

They grab on to a simple minded "fix" to a non-problem, and are too brainless to grasp that this "fix" has been tried many times and because of the laws of economics, it causes results counter to what they claim to want to accomplish.

But being imbeciles, the still do it, regardless of the reports of how it has failed every time it has been tried. They are unable to grasp the facts, do not believe the history, and believe in unicorn economics.

And when their "fix" fails to provide the desired results, and in fact, produces the opposite result.....they want to do MORE of the wrong thing because they are too stupid to even grasp how stupid they are.

Miami Dolphins´ anthem discipline
a policy only dictator would love
USA Today, by Nancy Armour    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 7/19/2018 8:47:19     Post Reply
Beating your wife is worse than protesting during the national anthem. So, too, is sexually assaulting a woman. While that might seem obvious, it needs to be clarified given The Associated Press´ report Thursday that the Miami Dolphins are now including protesting during the anthem on their list of "conduct detrimental to the club." Under NFL rules, that´s an offense punishable by a suspension of up to four games. The Dolphins later told the AP that "all options are still open." But to give you an idea of how heinous at least one NFL team sees trying to draw attention to racial and economic inequality, a four-game suspension is

House Republicans defeat attempt

Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee on Thursday defeated an attempt by panel Democrats to subpoena the interpreter who worked for President Donald Trump during his summit Monday with Russian President Vladimir Putin. “This is an extraordinary remedy, I realize, but then it’s extraordinary for the president of the United States to ask all of his senior staff essentials to leave the room and have a conversation with an adversary,” said Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), who called for the vote to compel the interpreter to testify behind closed doors. “And then in a public conversation disavow his own intelligence

Washington, DC - President Donald Trump repeatedly promised during his campaign to nominate Supreme Court justices who would overturn Roe v. Wade. Now with another nominee to the Supreme Court in his hands, abortion rights advocates worry that conservative dream will come true. But what needs to happen in order for Roe, the 1973 court decision that legalized abortion nationwide, to be overturned is more complex than it might seem. And if it happens, what comes next isn’t black and white either. Trump nominated Judge Brett Kavanaugh, a George W. Bush–era nominee with an extensive record

Jerusalem - Israel’s parliament approved a controversial piece of legislation on Thursday that defines the country as the nation-state of the Jewish people but which critics warn sidelines minorities. The government says the bill, passed in the early morning hours, will merely enshrine into law Israel’s existing character. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called its passage a “historic moment in the history of Zionism and the history of the state of Israel.” “Israel is the nation-state of the Jewish people, which honors the individual rights of all its citizens,” he said. “I repeat this is our state. The Jewish state.”

US proposes roll back of
endangered species protections

The US administration of President Donald Trump on Thursday proposed sweeping changes to the 45-year-old Endangered Species Act which would roll back protections for threatened animals, sparking alarm by environmentalists. The 1973 federal law is considered the gold standard for global environmental protection, and is credited with saving dozens of key species from extinction, including bald eagles, manatees, humpback whales and American alligators. One proposed change, announced by the Interior and Commerce Departments, would remove a sentence that aims to separate economic impacts from decisions about animal protection. Other provisions would vary protections for animals on a case-by-case

House Democrats vote ´present´

Most House Democrats voted “present” Tuesday on a resolution aimed at forcing them to clarify whether they support U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, after some Democrats have criticized the agency´s role in enforcing U.S. immigration laws. The House passed a nonbinding resolution saying lawmakers support the "officers and personnel who carry out the important mission of the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement." A two-thirds majority was needed to pass it, and because Democrats voted "present" instead of "no," it passed easily in a 244-35 vote. The final vote saw just 18 Democrats vote for the

Mueller All but Ignores the Other
Russian Hack Target: the GOP

Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election wasn’t as one-sided as Special Counsel Robert Mueller charges in his latest indictment. The Russian military spy agency that Mueller says hacked the Democratic National Committee also penetrated the computer systems of the Republican National Committee using fake emails in a phishing scheme, U.S. officials say. This evidence challenges the narrative, now reinforced by Mueller’s indictments, that Russia’s scheme was solely aimed at damaging Hillary Clinton. “RNC emails were stolen through the same spearphishing scams used against Democrats,” a senior U.S. intelligence official familiar with the investigation told RealClearInvestigations.

Washington - A Russian woman who tried to broker a pair of secret meetings between candidate Donald J. Trump and the Russian president, Vladimir V. Putin, during the 2016 presidential campaign, was charged Monday and accused of working with Americans to carry out a secret Russian effort to influence American politics. Working at the behest of a Russian government official and with help from an unidentified American political operative, the woman, Mariia Butina, worked to infiltrate American organizations as a way to secretly advance Russian interests, prosecutors said.

Washington - Republican and Democratic U.S. senators said on Thursday they want the government to reinstate penalties on ZTE Corp, despite a Trump administration agreement paving the way for an end of a ban on the Chinese telecommunications company. (Snip) Many U.S. lawmakers, including some of Trump’s fellow Republicans as well as Democrats, view ZTE as a national security threat, worrying that the use of its technology in the United States could make it easier for China to steal secrets.

Tokyo - About 20 percent of North Korean children are stunted because of malnutrition, and half the children in rural areas are drinking unsafe water, a senior U.N. official visiting the country said. Much progress has been made compared to 20 years ago but "significant humanitarian challenges" remain, Mark Lowcock, the undersecretary general for humanitarian affairs, said Wednesday at a news conference in Pyongyang, the capital of North Korea. The U.N. issued a transcript of his remarks. The United Nations is trying to raise $111 million to meet health, water and sanitation and food security needs for about 6 million people

The much-maligned habit of ghosting has apparently made its way into the workplace. According to a recent LinkedIn article, "People are ´ghosting´ at work and it´s driving companies crazy." Ghosting is when a person abruptly goes silent or disappears without explanation. The article goes on to explain that candidates who have agreed to job interviews fail to show up without any notice or further communication and, in some cases, accept jobs only to not appear for their first day of work. "This job market is so hot right now. Unemployment is at a 18-year low. You´ve got more job openings than candidates,

Pharmaceutical giant Pfizer said Tuesday that it is deferring recent drug price increases until the end of the year after an "extensive discussion" between the company´s CEO, President Trump, and Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar. The announcement came after Trump tweeted Tuesday that he had met with Pfizer CEO Ian Read to discuss his "drug pricing blueprint" — his plan to fulfill a campaign promise to lower drug prices across the board — and that the company would reverse the recent price hikes as a result. Pfizer confirmed the meeting in a statement, adding that it plans to defer the

President Trump’s longtime lawyer, Michael D. Cohen, secretly recorded a conversation with Mr. Trump two months before the presidential election in which they discussed payments to a former Playboy model who said she had an affair with Mr. Trump, according to lawyers and others familiar with the recording. The F.B.I. seized the recording this year during a raid on Mr. Cohen’s office. The Justice Department is investigating Mr. Cohen’s involvement in paying women to tamp down embarrassing news stories about Mr. Trump ahead of the 2016 election.

Since her surprise primary victory over 10-term Congressman Joe Crowley in New York’s 14th District, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been promoted by the media as the prototype of a new generation of young progressives destined to replace the leadership of the Democratic Party. Unfortunately for her media boosters, however, she keeps blowing her lines. It’s not just her rote advocacy of single-payer healthcare and guaranteed government jobs, or even that she backs wacky ideas like abolishing ICE and occupying airports — Ocasio-Cortez is genuinely clueless. She outed herself, in several recent interviews, as functionally illiterate in economics, international relations, and history.

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke is making plans to move the headquarters of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) out of Washington, D.C., to a city in the West. The federal government owns 640 million acres in the U.S., or roughly 28 percent of the nation’s entire landmass. The BLM manages 248.3 million acres of public land, more than any other agency, according to a March 2017 report by the Congressional Research Service. Today, @Interior confirmed that they are planning to move the BLM HQ west. This is great news since 99% of the land that the BLM manages is located

CLEARWATER — Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri announced Friday that his agency will not arrest a man deputies say shot and killed another man during an argument over a handicap parking space. The incident falls under Florida’s self-defense law known as "stand your ground," the sheriff said during a news conference. The law gives immunity to those in fear of their lives who use force to defend themselves. The shooting "is within the bookends of ‘stand your ground’ and within the bookends of force being justified," the sheriff said, later adding, "I’m not saying I agree with it, but I don’t make

One disastrous tweet has finally revealed Elon Musk for what he is: a fraud. Enraged that a British cave diver called his idea to rescue the Thai soccer team for what it was — “a p.r. stunt [with] absolutely no chance of working” — Musk took to Twitter and called him a “pedo.” Just like that, Tesla’s market value plummeted by $2 billion. Musk has been in business since 2002. His stated goal is nothing short of transforming humanity through his products: his electric cars, space travel, and an underground high-speed Hyperloop system. He has yet to succeed at anything but somehow spins every

Lisa Page and Peter Strzok, the reported FBI lovebirds, are the poster children for the next “Don’t Text and Investigate” public service ads airing soon at an FBI office near you. Their extraordinary texting affair on their government phones has given the FBI a black eye, laying bare a raw political bias brought into the workplace that agents are supposed to check at the door when they strap on their guns and badges. It is no longer in dispute that they held animus for Donald Trump, who was a subject of their Russia probe, or that they openly discussed using the powers

Before the word "resignation" became a euphemism for being fired, it connoted a sense of public integrity and personal honor. Attorney General Elliot Richardson and his deputy, William Ruckelshaus, showed both qualities when they resigned from the Nixon administration during the Saturday Night Massacre in 1973. Jimmy Carter’s secretary of state, Cyrus Vance, did likewise when he resigned during the Iran hostage crisis in 1980. Assuming Mike Pompeo and John Bolton still have their own senses intact, they, too, should resign following the epic disgrace of the U.S.-Russia summit inHelsinki on Monday. So should their senior staff. I don’t suggest

In the past few days, President Trump has given at least some Republicans reason to express displeasure over his relationship with Russia. First he performed a pathetic ritual of subservience before Vladimir Putin, standing beside the Russian leader — after a private meeting between the two, which no aides were permitted to attend — and dismissing the copious evidence of a Russian attack on the 2016 election in deference to Putin’s word. Then we learned that Putin had suggested that we make Americans available to the Kremlin for questioning, including Michael McFaul, the former U.S. ambassador to Russia, in exchange

As many as 5.7 million noncitizens may have voted in the 2008 election, which put Barack Obama in the White House.
