Hillary Clinton: Corporations and Businesses Don’t Create Jobs [1:04]
The Record is Clear: Minimum Wage Hikes Destroy Jobs
“The case in favor of a higher minimum wage is built on a bewildering number of misleading statistics and straight-up falsehoods.” Minimum wage hikes not only cause job loses, but also do nothing to reduce poverty. http://www.forbes.com/sites/realspin/2013/04/17/the-record-is-clear-minimum-wage-hikes-destroy-jobs/
To her credit, Hillary is partly right about her last statement.
It’s hardly the first time Hillary has lied with a big sneer … as if looking down her nose makes her lies less untrue.

“In our system, the president is both head of state and head of government. Obama seems to enjoy the monarchical parts, but when it comes to the actual business of running government, he shows little interest and even less aptitude.” -Charles Krauthammer @ http://www.nationalreview.com/article/391044/barack-obama-bewildered-bystander-charles-krauthammer
Stupidity is rampant in the Obamacrat leadership.
“Whether intended or not, the lasting legacy of the Obama administration will be one of stunning dereliction of duty. Yesterday’s news of a confirmed case of Ebola in New York City, combined with still developing reports of another possible Ebola case in Nashville, points to a White House and a federal government that is repeatedly lying to the American public, putting politics over safety, and being led by perhaps the most divisive and incompetent presidential administration in generations. Reader, this is the message that must be repeated to everyone you know as the country prepares for the November elections.” Ulsterman @ http://ulstermanbooks.com/dereliction-duty-obama-white-house-legacy/
About one in four Americans support the Tea Party. And because of our interest and motivation, we are a powerful force both within the Republican Party and as an identifiable American voter bloc.
Looking at these numbers strongly suggests to me that, as a group, we Tea Partiers are by far the more informed on what actually makes the economy WORK.
E.g., the left-wing wants good jobs, but their high rankings for the non-existent gender pay gap and job-killing redistribution of wealth policies make it very clear they actually believe the Star Trek cashless economy could ever work outside a monastery.
Also notice how Tea Partiers put availability of good jobs down at #8. An uninformed conclusion from this would be that we don’t give a crap about people being out of work; however, the reality is that all of the issues ranked higher (high taxes, illegal workers competing for jobs, Obamacare punishing employers, and instability of foreign oil markets) directly impact the availability of good jobs.
Meanwhile, the non-Tea Party Republicans (who have given only slightly more thought/study to the issues) place availability of good jobs at #2, but delegate the issues that actually affect job creation way below.
I really wish more people read Thomas Sowell.
Glad to announce that after almost 24 hours in intensive care my Univac has been revived and,hopefully ready for more abuse.My tech guy had to take the machine home with him after an hour yesterday because he said having 2 or 3 viruses was normal,mine had 17.Also,with no browsers open,most computers are running 50-60 programs.Mine has 126.It took till 3:30 this morning to remove all the viruses and make it perform like it should.He brought it back today and DW answered the door while I was curled up in the fetal position,sucking my thumb and whimpering softly.
I had a bunch of things bookmarked yesterday and,of course,much has been posted since then.I’ll try to pick some relevant stuff for you.
A special thanks to Mindful and CtH for filling in.I always enjoy what they post because of the professional style.
