New York Times: $15 an Hour is Meant to Drive Fast Food Out of Business

mcdonalds-closed-88adac8eddf950eb

As noted by the New York Post , the New York Times has let it slip that the real goal of the $15 dollar an hour wage is to drive cheap fast food restaurants out of business. And as they said:

“The restaurant industry . . . will not go down without a fight.”

But, I thought that all the businesses affected by the minimum wage were just greedy and could easily afford the wages they should have been paying all along?  I guess that wasn’t true.  That certainly wasn’t the case for Z Pizza in Seattle.  Z Pizza employed 11 employees, who were convinced their lives would be better since they would now be making the astronomical sum of $15 an hour.  The owner, Ritu Shah Burnham, tried everything.  She laid off workers, cut hours and even quit paying herself a salary, but in the end, she was forced to close her doors.  You see, while most businesses her size had six years before paying the $15, she had only two because she owns a franchise.  She got nailed on Obamacare for the same reason.

Liberals in their infinite wisdom (cough cough) they decided that a small franchisee should be lumped together with all the the franchisees and company owned restaurants.  To me, this is further proof that the goal is to destroy them.  I mean, what difference is there between a franchise restaurant owner with 11 employees and any other pizza joint with 11 employees?  This is Michelle Obama’s lunches for adults.  The same liberals who demand the right to choose to kill innocent babies, is unwilling to give you the right to decide what to eat.

You can start with an arugula salad topped with bean sprouts and nutritious insect infested lettuce.  Then a nice tofu patty in the shape of a t-bone steak and a side order of celery fries and steamed tree bark, followed by non dairy ice cream with the texture of a cardboard box for dessert.  Of course that’s just for the masses of the great unwashed.  The liberal elites will be enjoying shrimp salad, lobster topped off with a chocolate mousse.

Welcome to Obamaland.

Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals Slaps Down Obama’s Amnesty!!!

5thCircuit_copy_jpg_800x1000_q100

The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled against Obama’s amnesty plan that would give legal status to 4.7 million illegal aliens.  The Obama administration had sought an expedited lifting of Judge Hanen’s injunction against the program, which the Fifth Circuit has refused to do.  It appears that they have no intention of allowing Obama’s illegal amnesty program to begin before it goes to the Supreme Court for final ruling, that at this point could not happen before June of 2016.

As it stands now, Judge Hanen has yet to rule on the constitutionality of Obamnesty and it looks like the Fifth Circuit would not be inclined to overrule him.  The Obama administration still can appeal the injunction and they will, but that case would be heard by the Fifth Circuit Court and would be a necessary step before they could send the case to the Supreme Court, assuming they would hear the case.  Justice Roberts could refuse to hear the case with or without comment, in which case the decision of the Fifth Circuit would stand, meaning that Obamnesty would be illegal.

The Obama administration floated a compromise in which no amnesty and work permits would be issued in Texas but would be in the other 25 states involved in the suit.  It took the state’s lawyers fifteen minutes to refuse the deal.  It should have taken only fifteen seconds but I’m assuming that Obama’s lawyers were as incoherent as usual and it took that long to figure out what they were saying.

One federal judge in Pennsylvania has already ruled that Obama’s executive order amnesty is unconstitutional on the grounds that it gives illegal aliens benefits.  While no one denies that Obama has the power over enforcement, or in this case non-enforcement, the states insist that Obama cannot bestow the rights that come with citizenship to illegal aliens.

I love it when the courts bitch slap Obama.Before Obama, the average success rate in courts for the first 44 presidents was 70%.  Obama is now under 30% with a record twenty 9-0 Supreme Court decisions going against him.

Charlies Game newest Teen Facebook Sensation

Teens have a new thrill to replace the knockout game.  It’s called the “Charlie Game.”  The way it’s supposed to work is the teens take a blank piece of paper and make a cross using two pencils and then they summon a demon named Charlie.  It’s never worked yet.

However twice, very large groups of teens got together and drew crosses inside of a box and summoned a demon named Barry and that worked:

Cleveland Accepts New Federal Guidelines on Policing: Names Obama Police Chief

Cleveland

The city of Cleveland beats out both Ferguson and Baltimore as the first city that allows Obama’s Department of Injustice (DOI) to set up guidelines on how they enforce the law.  After the DOI released a report on how Cleveland police have been enforcing the law, Cleveland wasted no time in allowing the DOI to law down their new rules for policing.  (Police will now be armed with Super Soakers and Nerf Stun Guns)

Granted, the incident that caused so much noise about the police, whereby police shot a few hundred bullets (OK.  Maybe just 15) into a car with two unarmed teens was a bad example of how to act if you are the police.  But we are now seeing the murder and violence rate skyrocketing in Baltimore as a result of liberals deciding police always use excessive force.  As a result, arrests have dropped from an average of over 600 a week to just 358 last week and the Memorial Day Weekend has seen 27 shootings culminating in 9 deaths as a result.

Obama announced not so long ago that he planned on fundamentally transforming  state and local policing into his own image:

“We have a great opportunity… to really transform how we think about community law enforcement relations.”

“We need to seize that opportunity… this is something that I’m going to stay very focused on in the months to come.”

 “I expect our friends in the media to really focus on what’s in this report and pay attention to it.”

Now, imagine you are a policeman in Ferguson, Baltimore or Cleveland and the new guidelines calls for you to hold back when a suspect becomes aggressive and you can see how dangerous to your life these rules can be.  Do you quit?  I would.  I mean, why give a woman who hogs your blankets a lifetime pension you would never get to use?

Let’s face it, sometimes the police do get out of hand and sometimes it is racially motivated but the vast majority of time it’s not.  Especially in Baltimore, where half of the police force are minorities.  Three of the six officers going to trial in Baltimore are black.  And Ferguson, they continue to honor that thug Michael Brown, even after three autopsies proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that Dorian Johnson lied about that incident and that includes an autopsy by the Brown family themselves and Eric the Black Holder, who desperately wanted to find Officer Darren Wilson to be at fault.

The city of Cleveland has just completed negotiations with the DOI and will be implementing Their recommendations immediately, starting with retraining police on how to handle hostile situations.

Be Careful What You Ask For:Bloody Weekend in Baltimore

With five and a half hours left in the Memorial Day Weekend in Baltimore, they have had 27 shootings of which at least 9 were fatal, making it the bloodiest weekend in Baltimore this century.  The mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, prosecutor and black activist, Marilyn Mosby, and Chief of Police Batts as well as the rioters and looters in Baltimore have all done their damnedest to separate those abusive cops from the innocent citizens minding their own business on the streets.  They got their wish and the streets are running red with blood.
