Another fast food strike, but they must think we are stupid.

In the article one woman claims she makes $8 an hour but pays $1,300 in rent in Brooklyn. $1,300 a month in rent in the outer boroughs seems believable. But to claim you are paying that making $8 an hour?

$8 * 40 = $320.00 per week
$320 * 4 = $1,280.00 per month, actually she would make a little more as most months are 4.3 weeks.

So the USA Today actually quotes someone who says this? After taxes her rent would be >100% of her take home pay.

She, the USA Today reporter and editor all need to be required to wear a baseball cap that says, "WARNING, I AM STUPID."

In a strange way, I'm kinda hoping that the minimum wage does get raised, so that these people lose their jobs. lol

Kinda like there's a side of me that wants to legalize polygamy so that we can finally destroy marriage once and for all instead of letting it die slowly.

I have kind of taken this attitude myself. Let it die off, let the 30-40% minority who know what a traditional marriage rise socially and financially as they have stable situations. And let the rest slowly sink and wonder why things are such a mess for them.

The reaction from the Left is priceless. They never
listen to Rush yet are experts on him. They are
spewing such hatred and bile over this, it's very
entertaining. Rush has an IQ pushing 180 and I
think he would be a success at whatever he tried.
Writing kids books was a breeze for him..

This isn't news from today, but it's still relevant because nothing has changed when it comes to liberals.

In this clip, a reporter (who wasn't even trying to be confrontational) asked a bunch of libs why they were protesting, but they couldn't come up with an answer...lol!

One guy even said that the leaders of the protest were trying to figure out why they were there and that they'd reveal what they come up with "tomorrow". LOL!!!! :D

Typical Calif airhead Libs, it's why I escaped
the place 30 years ago. The whole state is
laid back airheadism, the key word for them
is 'manana', which is tomorrow in Spanish.
You hear it everywhere, it means just live
for today and somebody will take care of
tomorrow for you.
