Squealing Lefties

You have to know this ban on the Trans would set off the glitter set in Hollyweird and every patch of sparkle elsewhere and it did.

At long last…from Rico

Barry-the-fairy’s Marxist social-engineering ‘experiment’ allowing ‘transgenders’ into the US military has been shut down.
– About time, and at long last.

Of course, like everything Homo 44 did, it was NOT meant to do anything positive or constructive, but exactly the opposite…the motive was negative and destructive.
– The US military was targeted for destruction by the Left.

Predictable, the insane Left is ‘fit to be tied’ (gee, you’d think they’d rather enjoy that) and is rallying to support the 250 military members affected out of 1.3 million service members. Do the math for yourself. It’s a lot like dropping a wooden shoe (a sabot) into the gears of an efficient machine. [read: sabotage]
– And with a mere 3/10th’s of one percent of the total US population ‘mentally ill’ and/or ‘confused’ enough to assert they are ‘transgender’ this was always a case of the Marxist tail wagging the dog and nothing more. [XX and XY ‘trumps’ ridiculous socialist social-cultural experimentation and insane theories.]

The Left needs to “butt out” [pun intentional] of military matters, something they know absolutely nothing about…except that they hate, loathe, and want to destroy it.
– Meanwhile, back in Mommy’s basement…like the good little Marxist youth that they are…ANTIFA is preparing to do battle against the real defenders of the nation.

Hand in hand…

…the MSM and the Jackass Party.

If you know too much, you get this.

Meanwhile the Jackass Party still goes along with the narrative.

The Minimum Wage produces Minimum Jobs

If you want less of something, merely regulate it more and you will succeed.

Applebee’s Franchise Owner Gives Candid Interview About Firings Thanks to Minimum Wage Hike

Matt recently brought you up to date on how liberals’ minimum wage demands have done severe damage to Seattle’s and New York’s businesses. He highlighted a New York Post report revealing that, in the wake of the increased rate to $15 an hour, New York lost a staggering 1,000 restaurants.

Applebee’s was one of the businesses that has been especially hard pressed by the minimum wage hike. Zane Tankel, the CEO of Applebee’s New York franchise, explained that his restaurants were forced to fire at least 1,000 employees so far thanks to the liberal policy. He shared the unfortunate news with Fox Business’s Stuart Varney on Monday.

Instead of typical servers, the CEO explained that they will soon be replaced by concierges, who merely check on customers from time to time to make them feel “warm and comfortable.”

“The model now that we’re heading towards where we had one server for three or four tables, we’re moving towards one server for ten tables, eliminating about two-thirds of our labor ultimately. But it’s because of Cuomo, De Blasio, the liberal agenda.”

If Applebee’s completely follows through with its concierge service, nearly 2,000 employees will be heading for the exit, Newsbusters explains.

Tankel discussed this same issue with Varney in January, back when he had *only* fired 500 employees.

“We can’t raise prices anymore,” he said at the time, rather candidly, so they had to take drastic measures.

The lost workers, he explained, could be replaced with tablets that are placed on customers’ tables.

“Increasing minimum wage is technology’s best friend,” Tankel concluded.

Asking the difference between Illinois and Venezuela is soon to reach the same point on the economic map. While we are considering this pair, forget not Puerto Rico, another glorious example in Socialism successes. But the former two are the real stars, paragons of the terminal condition of any Socialist construct. We believe you know about Venezuela, probably heard about Puerto Rico so lets concentrate on Illinois.

Illinois in danger of entering financial ‘death spiral’

Illinois’ budget crisis has become so dire that the state is in danger of entering a financial “death spiral,” as a prominent ratings agency threatens to downgrade the state’s credit score to “junk” status.
Doing so would increase the cost of borrowing, worsening the deficit and making it even harder for taxpayers to dig out of the hole.

“We’re in a death spiral—Illinois has the worst pension crisis in the nation and needs the boldest reforms,” Ted Dabrowski, Illinois Policy Institute’s vice president of policy, told Fox News. “There is no doubt that junk bond rating is on its way.”

S&P Global Ratings has warned the agency will likely lower Illinois’ credit rating to below investment grade if feuding lawmakers fail to agree on a state budget for a third straight year.

Lawmakers are now in a special session in an effort to break the budget impasse, prodded by Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner, who has referred to his state as a “banana republic.”

The state currently faces $130 billion in unfunded pension obligations and a backlog of unpaid bills worth $15 billion. A downgrade to “junk” status would increase the cost of borrowing for critical infrastructure, or refinancing existing debt. [snip]

Through all this the Dems won’t agree to cap spending and cut programs that cannot be funded. What programs would those be? How about schools closing for starters, then no road repairs and state property maintenance.

Many taxpayers fled the state over the past half decade followed by businesses looking to avoid the onerous taxes. The current situation isn’t going to improve in the future not with a S&P downgrade of the bonds.
