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.

House Intel Committee finishes
its Russia probe interviews
CBS News, by Olivia Victoria Gazis    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 3/12/2018 6:03:15     Post Reply
Rep. Mike Conaway, R-Texas, announced that the House Intelligence Committee´s interview phase of its investigation into collusion and Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential campaign has concluded. Conaway told reporters Monday, "We found no evidence that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it colluded with the Russians." The Intelligence Committee did find, however, that Russia took active measures to meddle in the 2016 election, and that the majority expects it to undertake similar measures again. Now, Conaway said, the committee will move on to write its report, the first draft of which the GOP majority

Rep. Maxine Waters, who spent the better part of the inauguration season calling for the impeachment of President Donald Trump — before he even took over the White House seat, mind you — and the better part of Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation calling for the same, has found a new “let’s get ‘im, guys” cause to crow, and it’s named Stormy Daniels. Honestly, Waters is like a parrot with a vocabulary of one word. “This business about Stormy is not going to go away,” she said, during an interview with MSNBC.

A porn star suing President Trump offered Monday to return $130,000 she was paid to keep mum about their alleged sexual affair so that she can talk about the relationship. Stormy Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, offered to pay back the money in a letter to Mr. Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen, seeking to settle her lawsuit to void a nondisclosure agreement. In the letter, Ms. Clifford’s lawyer Michael Avenatti said the money would be repaid by Friday and Mr. Trump had until noon Tuesday to accept the offer. “This has never been about the money,” Clifford’s lawyer, Michael Avenatti, told NBC News

Comedian Kathy Griffin is embarking on her comeback, some nine months after she provoked outrage — and lost much of her work — by posing with a fake severed head that appeared to depict President Donald Trump. Griffin announced on HBO’s “Real Time With Bill Maher” on Friday night that she had just booked upcoming shows at New York’s Carnegie Hall and at Washington’s Kennedy Center — “Trump’s backyard,” she called it. “I’m dipping my toes into touring again,” Griffin said, adding that the Republican president and his supporters would prefer she never worked again.

The Metropolitan Opera fired James Levine on Monday evening, ending its association with a conductor who defined the company for more than four decades after an investigation found what the Met called credible evidence that Mr. Levine had engaged in “sexually abusive and harassing conduct.” The investigation, which the Met opened in December after a report in The New York Times, found evidence of abuse and harassment “both before and during the period” when Mr. Levine worked at the Met, the company said in a statement. The Met did not release the specific findings of its investigation, which it said had included

Battling the East River Current, Divers
Cut Passengers From Helicopter Harnesses

With the current in the East River between Manhattan and Queens running south at about three knots and the downed helicopter lashed to a tugboat, rescue divers on Sunday night had only one option. They told the tugboat captain to cut the propellers and resigned themselves to drifting with the current as they tried to cut five passengers out of the helicopter, their bodies underwater and cinched with harnesses heavy enough to let them lean over and snap photographs of the New York City skyline. By the time the divers plucked them out, it was too late. By the time the divers plucked them out, it was too late. The five passengers —

(Video) - A tourist helicopter plunged into the East River on Sunday night, killing five passengers who were trapped inside the sinking vessel while the pilot scrambled to safety, police sources said. The Eurocopter AS350 went down around 88th Street, near Gracie Mansion, at about 7:15 p.m., sources said. The pilot got out and climbed aboard a raft, but five others remained trapped inside the capsized and sinking helicopter, according to sources. “There was about a minute where we didn’t see anyone come out, then after a minute we saw a man come out holding onto a raft screaming, ‘Help! help!

The White House on Sunday vowed to help provide “rigorous firearms training” to some schoolteachers and formally endorsed a bill to tighten the federal background checks system, but backed off President Trump’s earlier call to raise the minimum age to purchase some guns to 21 years old from 18 years old. Responding directly to last month’s gun massacre at a Florida high school, the administration rolled out a series of policy proposals that focus largely on mental health and school safety initiatives. The idea of arming some teachers has been controversial and has drawn sharp opposition from the National Education Association,

I don’t allow them to say anything negative, ever, about the president,” Todd said. “It creates a challenge to all parents when he uses vulgarities like that.” The president’s use of an epithet also drew the ire of veteran broadcaster Tom Brokaw, who expressed

Moon Township, PA - US President Donald Trump said on Saturday he rejected a demand from Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto that Trump say Mexico would not have to pay for a proposed US border wall. At a campaign rally in western Pennsylvania for a Republican congressional candidate, Trump gave some details of a testy phone call he had last month with Pena Nieto that led to the postponement of plans for the Mexican leader´s first visit to the White House. Trump brought up the issue when the crowd started chanting "Build that Wall." Trump called Pena Nieto a "really nice guy" who made his request respectfully.

A week and a half before the 2016 election, Donald Trump´s personal attorney paid a porn star named Stormy Daniels to keep quiet about her alleged relationship with the Republican candidate for president. Today, that arrangement is well on its way to becoming the most talked-about "hush agreement" in history, with potential legal and political implications for the president. Through his spokesman, Mr. Trump has denied having an affair with Stormy Daniels, and his lawyers are now threatening her with financial ruin, saying she has to pay $1 million dollars every time she violates her agreement to stay silent.

No film genre is more quintessential to the American soul than the Western. The virtues Westerns champion—courage, moral clarity, self-reliance, individualism—are American virtues; their vices—excessive or hokey moral simplicity, caricatures of the enemy—are American too. Westerns are so synonymous with the legend that is America that it’s little wonder that from their heyday in the 1950s until today, they’ve played a key role in shaping our perception of ourselves, as well as the world’s opinion of us. The white-hatted cowboy standing firm against long odds is iconic, and not only within our borders. Western imagery has had such a powerful impact

Nearly all the coverage of the March for our Lives events today predictably looked like a scene straight out of central casting. That was particularly true of the coverage on CNN. Trust me. I sat through hours of it because, well… it’s Saturday and I’m the weekend editor, so that’s just how it goes. There was a decided, shall we say… “tone” to CNN’s broadcast. This was particularly true of the chyron messages which didn’t change overly much throughout the day. Here’s one which I captured straight from the television. Notice anything odd about it?

New York Times best-selling author and populist conservative columnist Ann Coulter says the United States will, “in one generation,” become South Africa after President Trump signed off on House Speaker Paul Ryan’s omnibus spending bill that does not include a single provision from the president’s 70-point list of pro-American immigration reforms. In an interview with Fox News Radio’s Tom Shillue, Coulter slammed Trump, saying he has “betrayed” his base of supporters by signing the omnibus without it including any border wall funding, increasing the “Catch and Release” program, and not adding any new deportation agents to help deport illegal aliens living in the interior of the country.
