When Reality Collides With Progressive Egalitarianism

A surprising revelations about the minimum wage increase to $15 an hour in Seattle's suburb and its influence on business?  Not really.

Its not surprising to me that once again, a liberal progressive egalitarian policy is a demonstrated failure. Paying a $15 an hour minimum wage to those who have absolutely no work experience, no training, no education and no plans to obtain any is absurd and it has serious negative consequences for jobs and businesses. What is interesting to me, if not amazing, is that Americans both locally and nationally, continue to allow these socialist egalitarians locally and in Washington, to experiment with and damage our economy and our nation to the point of collapse.

There is no amount of I told you so that can cover the repeated idiocy of failure that these people spawn on a regular basis and the average American just sits back in a glazed daze and watches. They sit idly by and watch while their country and their future goes down the tubes by leaps and bounds based upon the implementation of insane egalitarian policies by this administration and its adherents. They continue to drink the Kool Aid served up daily by American media and they continue to stare blindly into the face of their diminished future. Their only response being: "pass the reality programming and could I have another helping of faux news from the comedy channel and MTV?" Good grief! Is America ever going to wake up? Or is it already post script for what was once the greatest nation on earth?

As the story line goes, the next big policy failure about to be flushed into the American system by Obama and his "new party" handlers? The proposed 30% reduction of Carbon emissions by power generating plants in America. For those unaware? This move will literally kill the coal industry and all coal fired power plants in America. And the really idiotic reality? China is building coal fired plants weekly by the dozens! America is killing its capabilities to produce while China is continuing to increase theirs and when you look around this nation?  All you see are the Cumbaya singers praising the environmental advantages of green policies and more federal regulations to further kill industry.  So what happens once you have saved the environment? and killed your own ability to survive period? 

While America continues to abandon and hobble the industries that made our nation great, our interloper in chief continues to implement polices via presidential directives and caveats that are literally reducing this nation to third world status. How much longer can this go on? How much more will America tolerate it? What has to happen before Americans wake up and call full stop to the egalitarian socialist scheme to destroy America?

What is it costing us? You decide. Nothing in life is a free ride. If there is one everlasting and enduring principle of reality, that has to be it. Nothing is free, including and especially freedom. Someone paid for it or is paying for it regardless of what the milksop socialists will tell you. Just as you see in the reports now coming out of Seattle as it applies to the $15 minimum wage and you are now seeing in other locations that have implemented Obama care, these policies are having a devastating effect on our economy and jobs. The only answer for businesses saddled with these lunatic policies is to cut back jobs and increase cost to the consumer. Including the added surcharges now being implemented to offset the reality of implementing these idiotic polices of Obama's "change." Obama promised you change America and you are getting it. The problem is? Once you have paid all these new taxes and seen your income wither on the vine? There won't be any change left in your pocket period.

$15 an hour to flip hamburgers and operate a speak and spell cash register at the drive through? Yep! And it is coming to every corner of this nation like the rising level of a septic tank no longer capable of carrying the sewage and waste that these progressive liberals are expelling on a daily basis both locally and in Washington. Stay tuned and watch the prices at the grocery store and at the pump. and yes......even at that all American Chinese fueled Goliath Wal Mart. Don't expect to see prices falling there any time in the near distant future either.

And Oh!  By the way?  That $8 burger and fries meal you presently cruise through the drive through to buy?  Those will soon cost $15 but you shouldn't mind, after all its all to help make everything more fair for everyone else. Right?  

The Results of a Seattle Suburb’s Minimum Wage Hike Deserve a Big Fat ‘We Told You So’    Click Here To Read More

Over the last few months, a few things have happened:
  • Managers have taken more responsibilities on themselves, instead of hiring more workers.
  • Businesses have laid off workers, or eliminated their plans to hire more.
  • Area parking now comes with an added “living-wage surcharge.”
  • Hotels have cut employee benefits, free food, and overtime.
Shocking: when bad ideas are put into place, there are consequences.
