Conservatives Need be More Understanding, Really?

 

Bear with us as we cover a delicate subject of the feelings of rage from our leftist adversaries, or shall we be kind and refer to them as our friendly rivals on the political battlefield. (If liberal-leftist-speak, as Orwell might have referred to it, bothers you then please take advice and skip until after a familiar picture below.) Liberals, those conservatives attempt to malign by calling them leftists or liberal extremists, are simply more in touch with their feelings than are those stuffy and self-critical conservative cold-hearted elitists. These conservatives stand aloof in their steel and glass towers demanding that police go forth and do what they are too afraid to do, stand before liberals and defend their man, the clown in the White House. They know their chosen leader is nothing but a loud mouthed, brash, ignorant, uneducated lout and a bully whose chosen weapon is obscene tweets. All they are capable of doing is claiming they were just as upset four years ago but were too busy making money and suppressing their emotions to be capable of any noticeable reactions. They admit all they were capable of was calling for their tools, the Republicans in Congress, to obstruct, obstruct, obstruct. Now they are crying in their cold potato soup, Vichyssoise they call it. Then they follow this up with salted and spiced snails, Escargot they call it, and finally the entrée of raw ground beef with a nice raw egg dropped in the middle, Steak Tartare they call it, and their belief and trust in the man they bought into the White House is just as fake as their names for what most would call inedible foods. They claim they cannot understand the people demonstrating the fact they stole an election using the tricks of bending the rules in their favor while they know that factually Hillary won the popular vote and in any real democracy, not this farm ridden excuse where they use rubes to elect their excuse for a man, she would be sitting properly in the White House and the United States would not be the laughing stock of the world across Europe. Perhaps we need to spell out the reasons behind what they are witnessing and the why’s and wherefores’ of what is being called the Resistance and what they are labeling the hyper-political rejectionism being committed by Democrats in Congress.

 

First let’s talk about the political reaction in Congress, which is no different than the refusals of the Republicans to cooperate with President Obama for eight years. Despite what they point to of the Republicans working to assist with the budget proposals which kept the government operating, they cannot deny that many of the most innovative and important pieces of legislation passed without either a single Republican vote or a mere smattering of Republicans willing to do the people’s work. They invented obstructionism during the Obama Presidency where they never did accept that a minority person of color was in the White House. If they thought there was even a glimmer of a chance, they would have brought impeachment charges against President Obama their hatred was so obviously visceral. They seethed with disgust. They thought they were sophisticated and it did not show, but we could see it on plain display in their every word dripping with bile. Their ridicules in private, we heard as some could not hide their feelings and shared the poisons spoken by their friends in their smoke-filled rooms where the money passes hands to make the decisions against the will of the people. The same way the money passed hands and the fix was put in to deny Hillary her prize, her due of the Presidency because they simply hate.

 

Now we are protesting using legal demonstrations and they are hyperventilating over these displays of popularist emotions. We are in the streets giving display to the feelings of the majority of Americans that there is an unfit lunatic now representing our once proud nation. For the past eight years Americans could hold their heads high as we were represented by grace, charm and intelligence and now we cringe at every display of raw idiocy and hate pouring from the centers of power in the White House. His Twitter posts are an embarrassment which apparently nobody on his staff is capable of reeling Trump in and getting Trump under any control whatsoever. Even typing his name is difficult but we are liberals and thus we are the polite and wonderful people who are really trying to be accepting, but you make it so difficult. We understand when you ask how could we nominate Hillary, but what is your excuse, Trump? I mean like really? And conservatives ask why the left is out protesting. Can you actually have any doubt as to why with Trump in the White House? Then there are the claims of violence when obviously the violence is being orchestrated from those shady backroom deals with the cigar smoke and the bourbon whiskey glasses ringing as you toast the brilliance of sending ninjas to discredit the throngs of peaceful protesters. Our protesters would never partake of such violence and have you noticed that the stores they attack are all owned by our supporters such as Starbucks etc. Why would these thugs have been attacking our friends? These are obviously hateful extreme right wing agitators using rioting in order to discredit lawful and righteous demonstrations against this thug and illegitimate usurper sitting in Hillary’s Oval Office.

 

But let us set your minds at ease. We are not interested in a revolution or any other improper forceful reaction as we are law-abiding citizens who love our nation. What we desire is for our rightful government to be returned to the rightful majority of citizens who elected the true President of the United States, Hillary Clinton, the only correct President who was chosen by the majority of all the people. You know the Electoral College is an archaic invention of white slave owners simply to protect their white privilege and position of wealthy land owners and the elitists of society. They invented the Electoral College as a tool for the propagation of their rule while giving the people a feeling of voting rights and power. It was invented to give a visage of fairness while preserving the rule of the White wealthy class and their proper place ruling over the lesser peoples. We understand that you have fudged the system because it failed to prevent the election of a President who was not of the White privileged class and you have worked the system to assure that no minority ever makes it into the White House again. That is why the majority of Americans have been dispossessed by your Electoral College and you have usurped power placing a buffoon into power as he is really under your control while giving the image of an uncontrollable child on a temper tantrum. We are not fooled and we will prevent your oppressive white privileged power play to forever change the America we love and the America we have worked so hard and long to bring into the world of nations and to give all the people the right to power. And this has been the tone of all too many leftist news and internet locations and outlet since Election Day.

This was the Meeting of the Minds from Yesterday
May it Appeared for all Intents and Purposes to have been a
Mind Melding with both Leaders on the Same Page
For Fulfilling all the Promises from San Remo Forward

 

Now for a more centered look and our regular readers can breathe easier, we have not gone over to the dark side of the farce. The left believed the media predictions after the resounding reelection of President Obama and did not notice their losses in virtually every other level of governance from the local dog catcher to governors to Congress and virtually everywhere with the once glaring exception, the major cities. There, where these leftists live among the more normal liberals who are just as much victims to the leftist hijacking of their Democrat Party as the nation is to their destructive members of “The Revolution” being waged across the cities and university campuses. Do not be fooled, they mean revolution and are fully intending to do whatever it may take to install their idea of a perfect governance, fascist leftist government where conservatives are kept subordinate and their leadership sent off to the reeducation camps. While the rest of the United States have been struggling with a lethargic economy and elevated unemployment while the level of workforce participation became more a measurement of workfarce participation with ever more people, largely millennials, finding there no entry level positions and the job market all but closed to them despite having college degrees in the social sciences which they had been assured were highly valued. There are those surprised that their major of Late Fourteenth Century German Love Sonnets does not actually qualify them for any position outside teaching Late Fourteenth Century German Love Sonnets, of which there are almost three dozen positions in the world. Now they are angry and when they were sold that Hillary Clinton would remedy this situation and when she lost they lost it. Some were caught up in the movement which has offered them a new solution, taking the power they lack.

 

There is a problem which the conservatives have foolishly believed will work itself out as these demonstrators get tired and lose interest and return to whatever occupied their time previously. Were these regular people with regular jobs, the demonstrations and the riots would have already dwindled out as have previous such demonstrations. Perhaps we can remind people of the former renditions of what we are seeing. There had been the Occupy Wall Street and the Other 99% otherwise called the Anti 1 Percenters and then all the way over in Israel, the Cottage Cheese Demonstrations which were thankfully ended by that demand to return to classes when the university classes resumed. All of these demonstrations started and continued through mid and late summers as there were large numbers of unemployed and bored college students and an equal number of easily amused high school students who would come and protest during the day and return to their suburban homes red-eyed each night. The attraction of free drink and drugs proved irresistible to these kids and their parents seemed oblivious to their activities or possible a calm supportive feeling that this was simply a phase. Well, now there are groups with paid full-time organizers and often seed moneys to be spread to those who are capable of bringing with them additional bodies to swell the ranks. These riots and the demonstrations within which they are being couched are not about to die down and their anger is palpable. They mean revolution or at least their leaders and the moneyed interests fueling these actions believe. The police being told to stand off and allow the rioters as well as the demonstrators free ranging freedoms is intended to simply allow the demonstrations to grow and for larger and larger groups to cross over from the demonstrations to the rioting and joining the black clad ninja warriors of the left.

 

This is the beginning of a revolution and there is only one meaningful means of bringing it to an end. This is where the good news arises and President Donald Trump may just be the antidote. The one thing which will rob these demonstrations and thus the rioting of numbers would be a thriving economy which is why we will witness these demonstrations attempt to do whatever is required to prevent a return to prosperity, at least in and around the major cities. There will be efforts to destroy any growth of the economy in the cities with the intention of causing economic collapse of the cities and soon thereafter the suburbs as well hoping to collapse the job market and building the discontent. This is being orchestrated in order to well the ranks of those who are unemployed, underemployed and dispossessed in the society and thus the disenchanted willing to join “The Revolution” allowing for a potential real revolution. When the point is finally reached that the cities are starting to be burned by the rioters and the White House has to act and send in National Guard to quell the violence we will hear the screams of fascism. What is so ridiculously pathetic is that those who want a revolution are intent on installing an actual fascist governance which suspends elections with them never to return in the lifetimes of the cheering throngs thinking they have won not realizing what they have borne. Trump will not only not be remaining in office one second longer than elected, he may desire getting out of the hot seat after a single term and who could blame him. Even if he is not as wealthy as he claims, he still earns more than the Presidential salary he would be receiving if he were not giving it to charity. Trump has no desire to be king despite the accusations coming from the left. He simply may be a victim of his campaign’s success and counting the days until he is a free man again or he might be bathing in the believed admirations he thinks he is receiving, either way he will leave once his time is done. With any luck he will be able to jumpstart the American economic engine which has been fuel starved for the past decade and to release the horses that charge the money flow from their strangling regulations allowing them to run free and spread wealth in their wake. The American economy is likely just waiting to be permitted to jump at the opportunities if only permitted unfettered access to the drivers of economic freedom. This is job one just as Trump claimed during the campaign and the faster the regulational drawback and the release of the investment cycle through tax rate adjustments permitting for the easy movement of monies from investment to investment and across different means of entrepreneurial enterprises, the faster the jobs will multiply and the sooner there will be more jobs than people to fill them. This will allow for a healthy new immigration system streamlined benefiting the needs of the nation to bring in the people required to even further enhance the capital investment cycles and increased profit margins, the best means of a healthy economy. These increases will result in greater funds and possibly ending the yearly debt cycle which has strangled the United States and doubled the debt over the last decade. The future is full of hope providing that President Trump’s team are prudent and allow for an untethered economic environment and a return to American exceptionalism which will serve not only the United States but hopefully serve as an example which the rest of the industrialized world will follow, though Europe may be mired in their own sorry history and bad choices of late.

President Donald Trump’s National Security Adviser General Michael Flynn Resigns

 

President Donald Trump’s National Security Adviser Michael Flynn has resigned, the White House said late Monday after week of hounding by leftists insane to destroy anybody associated with President Trump. Their first target was the attacks on now Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos after which was Attorney General Jeff Sessions which was as much as it went for President Trump’s appointments before each was accepted. Had similar complete idiocy and rejectivism been shown to President Obama’s appointments, especially minority appointments whose actual resumes left some room for improvement, if we may be polite about their qualifications, the media would have been in twenty-four hour a day, non-stop, over the top screeching about racism and hatefulness of the Republicans for actually questioning the candidates instead of being the rubber stamp they are supposed to be for Presidential nominations because the President, when it was Barack Hussein Obama, is so above reproach that his appointments must be blessed by the Highest Sources, the ACLU. Now every Presidential appointment must go through the trial by fire and ice, water and air, above and below and any other opposites which must mean they can never measure up to what the Leftist Democrats demand of them. General Michael Flynn’s great sin was actually preparing to do the job he was being appointed to before the Senate piranhas got their pound of flesh. He will become the celebrated sacrificial lamb which will be proof that all of Trump’s appointments were soiled and dirty and do not deserve to hold positions in the anointed realm of leftist government supremacism. Only the Elizabeth Warren fake identity politics wunderkind that hold esteemed resumes filled with academic accomplishment and complete devoid of real world accomplishment as such a realm they never dared to set foot as such is unclean and would soil them with reality, something our elitists avoid more than death itself. General Michael Flynn was a man of letters and real world experience on the hardest of all test grounds, the battlefield where lives and real gains and losses are measured in actual yardsticks. It was in this world where reality costs lives and political gains are figments of the imagination coming from Washington from the likes of Ms. Warren but are measured in inches and foxholes and the men who man those foxholes. His world was far from the antiseptic discussions in the Congress where everything becomes numbers on sheets of paper held aloft to prove points they often have no relevance held between. In the world of General Michael Flynn those pieces of paper represent real Dog-Tags of real men and women who have mothers and fathers, brothers and sisters, wives and families and children, fiancés, boyfriends and girlfriends and every one of those people need to receive a letter written with the emotions, tenderness, understandings and consolations which will make each loss all the more bearable and to sooth them while conveying that you actually had personal knowledge and attachment with their beloved. With General Michael Flynn such knowledge of his men was a definite possibility as he did more than most to know each person under his command, a Herculean task beyond the imagination of most in Congress who now celebrate this man’s surrender to vindictive and mean-spirited victimization.

The media will cover this as a great weeding out of the unfit from President Trump’s Cabinet and advisors and claim that there should be a long list of additional resignees and when the Democrats regain the Senate, as is proper and the natural order of things, then there will be blood in the water and a feeding frenzy will begin and President Trump’s Cabinet will be emptied and the President impeached once they gain all of Congress, also part of the natural order according to the mainstream media. Watching the tantrums from the Senate Democrats and the outraged diatribes by the likes of Nancy Pelosi, Elizabeth Warren, Al Franken and sundry other elitists whose lives and reality seldom have met has actually served to make many a reluctant Trump supporter become an active Trump supporter. The unbridled hatred and demeaning of the entire half of the nation which voted for, as the Democrats (or should we call them DemonRats) describe Trump, the Devil incarnate about to spread brimstone upon the Earth in the form of overt pollution allowed when the entirety of EPA restrictions have been swept aside in an effort to please his masters in industry making the United States and even worse polluter than China. We need remember that China had to close down three-quarters of the manufacturing and limit electrical power use in Beijing before the Olympic Games so as not to poison the lungs of the competitors or those coming to view the games and see modern China for the first time. Tell us if your city has pollution so bad it could inflict lung damage to a Nigerian sprinter just because he ran the hundred meter dash without breathing equipment. Even at its worst, Pittsburgh or Denver or Los Angeles were never that bad, and these were the worst of the worst back in the day (the 1960s through 1980s). The United States has met more pollution targets than even the Europeans have done and the United States met them without approving the Kyoto Protocols because in the United States technology was not hindered by restriction on experimentation and risks which some paid dividends and others proved to be the wrong direction; the thing is by allowing trials we learned and improved faster than those restricted to taking the most cautious of routes. This is the same as can be said of the Cabinet as they all have real world experience where trying something unproven is permitted, not condemned out of hand as such has been condemned by Congress often in the past. There is a lot to be said for working where there are real consequences over those whose career has been politics where the consequences are paid by the public, never the politicians.

 

The media and the left are consumed by rabid hatred of President Trump and everything he might do and anyone he might appoint. Their rioting in many major cities and on campuses across the nation with paid specialists who come in at the high point of such demonstrations when emotions are most stoked wearing their ninja black outfits replete with masks hiding their identity and then proceed to lead those they can instigate or inspire in destroying property, breaking store windows, overturning cars, setting them on fire and even stealing merchandise from the stores whose windows they smashed and if they come across an unfortunate individual wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat, they will harass and possibly actually attack and mug that individual for having the temerity to trespass on their assigned route of destruction. The problem is that these instigators are paid and not grassroots inspired protesters. They are sent with the intention of causing as much damage as they are able and thusfar they have been granted free range to do as they desire. The fact that the police have been instructed to stand down and allow this violence is indicative of the disease rotting away America’s major cities. The fact that police are told not to prevent or even interfere with violent and destructive demonstrators, ones who are obviously organized and paid to perform this task, makes one suspect that the backing for these rioters are well connected and have the means and influence to get the political leadership of these cities and the administrators of the colleges and universities to permit and all but encourage such violence as if there is a concerted effort to radicalize as much of the population as possible. This was part of what gave way to our fears that this is a movement designed to take control of the government through violent threat and the promise to bring order back to the nation by a coming future savior, possibly such running for President in 2020 and having Congress declare Martial Law and after that the die is cast and all that needs be accomplished to overthrow the Republic will have been accomplished. This fear is what caused us to write the article The Fascist Playbook is Being Repeated Now covering the end result of these protests if they should continue to grow and become an undercurrent type of movement which can be cast as subversive by an actual radicalist popularist leader using such for their own political goals and gains. If this sounds confusing or you are unclear on this, please read the article and possibly do some research and the pattern becomes clearer the more you know. This pattern begins by undermining government and making the current leadership appear unpopular, unable to actually govern and inept. This is used by a savior who runs on a platform of restoration of the ways things are supposed to be and how they were when all was well with the nation. After four years of cities slowly growing more disrupted until they are burning come the 2020 election cycle and President Trump is opposed by every mayor and thus unable to quell the violence and the Democrat candidate claims they warned that Trump would ruin the nation and if you just give them the power to do what needs be done, then order will return. Order returns, but not as one would expect or desire, it becomes an absolute order replete with oppression of all freedoms, fascism.

 

But the victimizing of National Security Adviser General Michael Flynn is a sad day and something which should be mourned, not celebrated. But the message which will be played is that he was being subversive and breaking all the rules of decorum by meeting with the Russian Ambassador’s aides to discuss possibilities once President Trump took office. On one side the media is condemning Trump for taking over ten days to place all his advisors and Cabinet into place as well as the near two-hundred Ambassadors while all the time demanding more vetting of every appointee and attempting to reject any of his appointments on the smallest of discrepancies which can be uncovered. About the only question not asked has been the famous trick question of, “When will you stop beating your wife, a date, that is all we need, just a date.” The Democrats and their friends in the media and entertainment will laud them for chasing this disreputable scoundrel from office ignoring the fact that the man they are smearing is so far above their petty crap and such a superior individual with more respect and love of the nation than many of them could imagine having that any comparison between them and General Michael Flynn is laughable if what they have sewn was not so sad. President Trump has already brought forward General Keith Kellogg to be acting National Security Adviser and we would love for this to be his actual nominee. There will likely be rumors about why this honorable man is also not worthy of such trust and high office. Perhaps he was within five miles of a Russian Consulate during his last vacation and they will demand to know what he was doing in such vicinity of a Russian institution. The rabid and vile accusatorial nature of the media and Democrats, nay, DemonRats as it is not all the Democrats but a select and vicious groups of attack pit bulls who are to be scorned for their misrepresentation of their responsibility to advise and consent, they instead are attack and dissent. These DemonRats are committing the exact crime they accused any Republican Senator of committing should they even have gone so far as asking a question of any appointee by President Obama calling such acts to be stonewalling and impeding the due process of advise and consent which they were charged with performing. Oh how quick the story changes with a change of administrations, both in the media and in the definition of the powers of the Senate where advise and consent goes from simple consent to critical inspection. On that alone is the definition of hypocrisy.

The Coming Destructions of the $15 Minimum Wage

 

There are a number of Democrat run and owned cities which feel they have found the solution to poverty caused by those working merely for the paltry $7.25 per hour; the new dawning of the $15 per hour minimum wage. These cities see no problem with doubling their minimum wage and believe that the businesses, such as burger and other fast food restaurants and retail shops will have no choice as they will be unable to move from the city. They have missed another alternative that those unable to move beyond the city limits will face, total disappearance as they find it impossible to sell their merchandise at the inflated price required to pay their remaining help the overly inflated salaries. Where the minimum acceptable wage is already around $10 per hour the increase will still cause hardships for the retailers and manufacturers. Their higher priced goods will cause financial distress for those residing within the city limits without the means to get to the suburbs where the prices will actually be lower. Even the real estate will lose value as it becomes more difficult to rent their retail and manufacturing spaces and the cities slowly fall into disrepair as the people find they have little if any choice but to leave the city. With what jobs currently exist being initially cut just to remain viable, the economic base for these cities will be cut from under them. The loss of jobs will lead to decreased business which will again lead to more job loss in a slow death spiral. These cities will slowly turn into husks collapsing under their bureaucratic foolishness. They are signing their death warrant in their misguided attempt to right a nonexistent wrong.

 

When I first entered the job market the minimum wage was all of $1.25 per hour; yet nowhere in the entire area around the city where I resided could one find a job at that wage. The minimum wage by 1975 had risen to the unbelievable heights of $2.00 per hour and even that was not high enough to affect work in my home city. The reason was simple, nobody would accept such a wage nor could any employer find workers even for digging ditches at such a wage. My first job was washing dishes at a diner which paid more than $1.50 and was among the lowest paying of jobs. As it turned out I was a poor dishwasher and was fired within the first few weeks. From there I found work stocking shelves at a chain shoe store which paid even more and eventually became a commissioned sales person where minimum wage never became a consideration. Still, even friends who took construction work actually digging ditches or, as I did one summer, building railroad tie walls in a new community development were paid well above minimum wage. I know that across the nation there were many places where the minimum wage was the guideline for minimum wages of employment but that was always a starting salary. Anybody working at a minimum wage who was still making the minimum wage within six months or a year was usually soon to be seeking a different line of work as they were not up to par. Minimum wage was a test salary which was offered largely as one learned how to work at their chosen job and once they proved proficiency their salary would rise above that minimum rate. This fact was one of the truths I found wherever I moved was that any employee worth their salt made minimum wage only for the shortest of periods and once they proved their worth they received a more decent wage. Are there those who make minimum wage to start and will continue making that level no matter how hard they work? Yes, but these are a very small minority and few of them are raising a family on their salary. Those who only make minimum wage for extended periods of time will not benefit from a $15 per hour minimum wage as those will be the first people who will be let go. Often those making minimum wage for prolonged periods of time often are kept on the payroll not because they are price efficient but because their employers realize they are doing the best they are able and they remain employed more for spiritual or social reasons than economic ones.

 

History of the National Federal Wage Rate

 

The reality is the world is a hard and cruel place with little sentiment, though fortunately there is more sentiment just not in the workplace. In the workplace every salaried individual must fulfill a simple parameter; they must make more money for their employer than their employer pays them. Businesses are not for generosity or charity, even those in the business of charity as even they must show a profit for every employee. Their secret is the majority of their employees are largely volunteers and thus can easily take in more than they cost. Businesses need to make a profit or they serve no purpose and would soon go out of business without a profit margin. Let us take an example of a business which makes exactly the money as it pays out in salaries. How long would the owner and his family survive if this was the case? Owners only receive a salary from profits after all expenses are paid and thus employees must make more than they cost or the owner has no reason to remain open. Further, what is the owner to do when the rent for the store space comes due, the water and electric bills, the gas bill, taxes on the property and on sales, and how do they pay for the insurances for their employees such as medical (Obamacare does not come cheaply to the average business) and unemployment and payroll taxes etc. And then there are the other incidentals an employer has such as the Christmas party and cupcakes for employee birthdays and of course meals for their own family. If it is a large company then there may be stockholders who also demand profits otherwise they will take their investment capital elsewhere.

 

These are the most basic of reasons that the $15 per hour minimum wage is going to bust many of the cities employing it. There are probably a select few cities such as San Francisco, New York, Los Angeles, Washington D.C., Chicago and a maybe others where the minimum employable wage, not the minimum wage but for that location it acts as the minimum wage, is already over $15 per hour. These cities could make the empty statement that they are raising their minimum wage to $15 per hour knowing that virtually every employer, especially their main employers, already are paying $16, $17, $18 or even more just to find worthy candidates to fill their positions. The problem with their taking their minimum wage above the national average is it places an upward pressure on smaller and less affluent cities to follow suit when their economic situations cannot support such a wage scale. It is all well a good for the major cities where there are no shortages of employable people compared to the job base to make offers to raise their minimum wage to less than the going rate as they and their employers will not suffer. But as this is not about their minimum wage, it is about making a case to raise the Federal minimum wage to $15 per hour, which the Democrat Party has been pushing, which would have disastrous results especially for rural neighborhoods and farm laborers. Small towns would find the higher prices near impossible for families to meet and employers would run their businesses as lean as humanly possible possibly leaving numerous former employees unemployed. These communities would soon be faced with taking their economies off the grid, so to speak. They would most likely turn to a barter system which is untaxable and makes things relative and neutralizes the minimum wage as what is the worth of bushels of wheat in exchange for a new roof on the barn? Soon these communities would drive out any competitors who could not accept bartered goods such as the chain stores which run only on dollars and cents. No, the $15 per hour minimum wage argument is mostly being pushed in Democrat controlled major cities such as Seattle, where their Federal Court Judge heard a case and has attempted to nullify President Trump’s immigration vetting delay from terror ridden nations. These cities already have virtual minimum wages well above that $15 per hour and thus are only going to hurt small Mom and Pop stores and other smaller enterprises or workplaces with low profit margins such as miniature golf courses, etc. The whole reason behind the minimum wage argument is to give false hope to young employees who see such a higher minimum wage as their salvations not realizing that it will only bring about a bout of inflation until the new minimum wage will be equal in buying power to the present minimum wage and will only result in the American worker becoming more expensive and thus chase more jobs overseas. This is a bad argument and can only harm America, but what do the politicians care if they can garner a few extra votes in November?
