What happens when you raise the minimum wage?

Without getting into a discussion on what it should be, what's fair and all that. I just want to discuss what happens when it goes up. Based on my experience hourly employees value themselves on how much over the minimum wage they make. When it goes up those people want to get a raise so they maintain that difference. They will be unhappy and feel underpaid if they don't get that raise.

Raising the minimum wage has more of an impact than most people grasp. Some people don't understand this, they think statically. They don't understand the effect changing something as fundamental as this will have. They just assume this extra cost will come from employer profits. What actually happens is quite different. Businesses have to maintain a certain profit to stay in business. When a cost goes up they have to offset that by cutting costs or raising prices. Raising prices is never a good idea because when something is more expensive people buy less of it. That would kill the business. So cutting costs is what is usually done. That means cutting the labor costs because other costs usually can't be cut, rent, utilities, etc. They will cut labor costs by a combination of shorter hours, eliminating some jobs and asking people to work harder to get the job done. The effect of all this is that workers on the low end of the wage scale will be the first hurt which is exactly the people the proponents of raising the minimum wage want to help.

... For every gallon of water used by fracking, Texas saved 33 gallons by using that water to produce electricity from natural gas instead of coal. ...
But, but, but, say the liberal whackos... I read not to long ago that there are something like 32,000 fracking wells in the US. You don't read much if anything about them causing any problems. That doesn't stop the ignorant nut jobs who irrationally fear that it -might- hurt the water supply. Just about anything -might- hurt the water supply. The upside of fracking is less use of coal, less pollution, and lower cost. Those facts won't stop the, 'fear of progress' left wing liberal nuts from being against it.

Who is A&E gonna fire?

Not Phil Robertson that's for sure. I've seen these things develop before and the only recourse A&E has now is to apologize to Phil, blame it on some mid level slump and fire that poor sucker. But I don't think Phil would accept that. He is a class act and wouldn't let A&E off that easy. It's going to be interesting to watch those lefties squirm.

We want to thank all of you for your prayers and support - Missy West Robertson

We want to thank all of you for your prayers and... - Missy West Robertson 

Missy West RobertsonWest Monroe, Louisiana · 26,694 FollowersWe want to thank all of you for your prayers and support. The family has spent much time in prayer since hearing of A&E's decision. We want you to know that first and foremost we are a family rooted in our faith in God and our belief that the Bible is His word. While some of Phil's unfiltered comments to the reporter were coarse, his beliefs on what is sin are biblical. Phil is a Godly man who follows what the Bible says are the greatest commandments "Love God and love your neighbor," and any implication that Phil would incite or encourage hate is entirely false. We are disappointed that Phil has been placed on hiatus for expressing his personal and constitutionally protected beliefs. We have enjoyed a good relationship with A&E up until this point but as a family cannot imagine the show going forward without the patriarch at the helm. We are in discussions with A&E to see what that means for the future of Duck Dynasty. Again, thank you for your continued support of our family.
The family has decided that the show isn't going on without Phil. They are striking A&E! Now the Asshole and Egotist network can either ask him to come back or lose a fortune when they go to another network. A&E blew this decision big time. They wanted to appease those who they agree with but didn't realize how much it will cost them. Good!

Tis the season

Three men died on Christmas Eve and were met by Saint Peter at the pearly gates.

'In honor of this holy season' Saint Peter said, 'You must each possess something that symbolizes Christmas to get into heaven.'

The Englishman fumbled through his pockets and pulled out a lighter. He flicked it on. 'It's a candle', he said.

'You may pass through the pearly gates' Saint Peter said.

The Scotsman reached into his pocket and pulled out a set of keys. He shook them and said, 'They're bells.'

Saint Peter said 'You may pass through the pearly gates'.

The Irishman started searching desperately through his pockets and finally pulled out a pair of women's panties.

St. Peter looked at the man with a raised eyebrow and asked, 'And just what do those symbolize?'

The paddy replied, 'These are Carols.'

And So The Christmas Season Begins. . . . . .

» Liberalism is a Religion; Hatred is its Sacrament » Commentary -- GOPUSA


I have noticed that you can experience this by just mentioning a few names in the presence of liberals. Names like Palin, Bush, and Cheney will create a reaction of abject hatred from liberals. I don't understand why anyone wants to hate so much. It must make for a miserable life. It also makes it impossible to have an intelligent conversation with liberals. Their hatred clouds their minds to the point they can't conduct a conversation about the differences in their viewpoints with those they don't agree with. Therefore, I don't bother and suggest you don't either. After all, you can't change a closed mind.

» Obama Worship Syndrome » Commentary -- GOPUSA 
... On Monday evening, for example, CNN's Piers Morgan considered whether New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie could run for president as an overweight man. Morgan, with stars in his eyes, asked crisis-management expert Judy Smith, "After the perfect Barack Obama -- who's a perfect physical specimen to many people's eyes -- does it matter?" After toweling himself off, Morgan then asked whether Americans could even stomach "a regular kind of guy who likes cheeseburgers and beer, but appears to be a straight talker?" 
Morgan's OWS pales in comparison to MSNBC's Chris Matthews, who infamously declared that Obama made his leg tingle. But that's just the first symptom of Matthews' OWS: He's also declared Obama "the perfect father, the perfect husband, the perfect American," explaining that Obama has "never done anything wrong in his life, legally, ethically, whatever"; he's blamed the sun for Obama's pathetic June 2013 speech in Berlin (it glared off his teleprompter, Matthews insisted); and he's compared Obama to Henry V among others. ...

This was all so predictable. Liberals are inept when it comes to doing so many things. There is a world of difference between, "Wouldn't it be nice if etc" and actually making it nice. So, sure, it would be nice if everyone had health insurance but they are finding out it isn't so easy to actually do that. I have no confidence in inept people doing complicated things. In this day and age of Amazon and a million other websites doing much more complicated things successfully, it is embarrassing that they couldn't get this right.

Relaxation technique 
In case you are having a rough day, here's a stress management technique recommended in all the latest psychological journals.   The funny thing is that it really does work and will make you smile. 
1. Picture yourself lying on your belly on a warm rock that hangs out over a crystal clear stream.
2. Picture yourself with both your hands dangling in the cool running water.
3. Birds are sweetly singing in the cool mountain air.
4. No one knows your secret place.
5. You are in total seclusion from that hectic place called the world.
6. The soothing sound of a gentle waterfall fills the air with a cascade of serenity.
7. The water is so clear that you can make out the face of the Congressman you are holding underwater. 
See it worked. You're smiling. You feel better already.

UN's massive new climate report adds little explanation for 'pause' in warming

UN's massive new climate report adds little explanation for 'pause' in warming | Fox News 
An enormous U.N. report on the scientific data behind global warming was made available Monday, yet it offers little concrete explanation for an earthly oddity: the planet’s climate has hit the pause button. 
Since 1998, there has been no significant increase in global average surface temperature, and some areas -- notably the Northern Hemisphere -- have actually cooled. The 2,200-page new Technical Report attributes that to a combination of several factors, including natural variability, reduced heating from the sun and the ocean acting like a “heat sink” to suck up extra warmth in the atmosphere. 
One problem with that conclusion, according to some climate scientists, is that the U.N.'s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has limited the hiatus to 10-15 years. Anastasios Tsonis, distinguished professor at the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee, believes the pause will last much longer than that. ...
Yeah sure, global warming is real, yeah right got it... Except that the facts don't support it.

How to tell if you're talking to a flaming liberal

I was sitting at PT with an ice pack on my knee when the guy next to me started talking about healthcare. I wasn't too interested in talking about it but to be nice I went along. It quickly turned into a lecture from him. He never wanted to hear anything I had to say and interrupted me often. Liberals never want to discuss anything, they just want to preach their -flip card- doctrine. I've learned long ago not to bother with them but I was trapped with that ice pack on my knee. In mid sentence, his, not mine, the therapist came by to remove the ice pack. I used the opportunity to escape with the liberal still talking. I said, "Nice to meet you, gotta go" and left. he probably thought he had converted me because I didn't respond to his speech. He didn't, he just reinforced my conviction that liberals lean to the idiot side and aren't worth the time or effort to debate them.

The average IQ is 100. That means that half the people are below 100. Now we know where all the liberals come from...

'Can you give us an example?'
'Thou shall not kill.'
'Not kill? We're not interested.'

So He went to the Blacks and said, 'I have Commandments.'
The Blacks wanted an example, and the Lord said, 
'Honor thy Father and Mother.'
'Father? We don't know who our fathers are. We're not interested.'

Then He went to the Mexicans and said, 'I have Commandments.'
The Mexicans also wanted an example, and the Lord said 'Thou shall not steal.'
'Not steal? We're not interested.'

Then He went to the French and said, 'I have Commandments.' 
The French too wanted an example and the Lord said, 'Thou shall not commit adultery.'
'Sacre bleu!!! Not commit adultery? We're not interested.' 

Finally, He went to the Jews and said, 'I have Commandments.'
