Remember to be careful what you wish for: in this case, the $15/hour minimum wage so dear to Democrats.
There is now a vending machine called a “Big Mac ATM” at a Boston McDonald’s stand on Kenmore Square. ( https://www.yahoo.com/news/mcdonalds-debuts-boston-big-mac-222858727.html ) That would be the logical place for it: Kenmore Square used to have a reputation for attracting several kinds of loopiness. Anyhow, you can now get your Big Mac straight from a vending machine.
This does away with any need to pay anybody $15 an hour to serve up burgers.
And you can say “Adios” to a whole lot of starter jobs for young people.
Here in New Jersey they’re always trying to put in a $15/hr minimum wage. Politicians–especially Democrat politicians–really get off on giving people money that isn’t theirs to give. It makes them feel generous. If the end result is to drive up prices and burn up jobs–well, hey, we’re used to getting boned by our elected representatives. Next thing you know, Republicans are doing it, too.
Here’s hoping and praying our new president can tame that beast. Because we may be running out of opportunities to do it.
Here are a few basic principles of reality that are often ignored. They bear repeating. But be warned: you can’t embrace reality and still be a liberal.
1. Government has no money of its own. It only has what it can extract from us in taxes. All the money that comes out of government–stuff like food stamps, housing subsidies, state and federal aid to education–came in to the government through somebody’s paycheck. Yours, for instance.
2. If you can’t make a profit, you can’t do the business. The 2016 Democrat party platform calls for reining in those dadburned profits. How dare they make a profit? But the non-negotiable truth is that if a business cannot make a profit, it cannot exist. And don’t bother with the clever riposte, “Oh yeah?? What about the non-profits? Huh? How come they do just fine? Huh? Huh?” The non-profits survive because the government supports them–with your money.
3. No one can afford to pay anyone $15 an hour to pick up litter in the parking lot. Democrats–sorry to be picking on them, but they’re the ones who declare war on reality–want the minimum wage to be $15 an hour. If that ever happens, there will be no jobs, none at all, for young or unskilled labor.
4. Reality is real and it doesn’t matter what you think or say to the contrary. Try walking over an open manhole that you say isn’t really there, and see what happens. Really, this whole “social construct” business has gone more than far enough. Men are men and women are women no matter what you do to them surgically or pharmacologically: every cell of a man’s body will continue to have none but male chromosomes, and a woman’s cells will have only female chromosomes. That cannot be changed.
Libs like to call themselves “reality-based” because they believe in Evolution, whatever it is, and other Scientific Truths. Pathetic, isn’t it? But liberalism is an amusement that has a very high price tag for the rest of us, and it’s time we started refusing to pay.
