MORT’s meanderings

  Hillary promises to raise
the minimum wage to $12.
There.  That oughta do it.  Only a woman could be so compassionate. No other candidate, especially a male, could have the genius to come up with that gem of an idea.  
Doesn’t it make sense?  Entry level jobs that require little else in the way of qualifications, other than showing up to work are not worth even half that.  Ask any employer today, who requires relatively unskilled help to operate his business successfully, how he can sustain a minimum wage of $12. an hour for entry-level workers?  He can’t.  That means that either he is obliged to raise the price of his product, or watch his business slowly decline to the point where it doesn’t pay to open the door.  Only a Ted Kennedy, could have had the chutzpa to make a  blustery argument even when he was sober, for his perennial demand that the minimum wage be increased.  His logic:  “No one can support a family of four on today’s minimum wage.”  It never made sense then . . . it doesn’t make sense, now.
But now, Hillary, the smartest female dimwit on the national scene (it’s her turn, don’t forget) has taken up the good ‘ol Liberal, minimum wage harangue. Mrs. Evil makes precisely the same nonsensical Democrat arguments as the late (thankfully) Ted Kennedy.  I see now what has driven them both to drink.

Can you believe that we have a president that thinks that raising the minimum wage will increase employment and cut down on poverty, and a president that thinks "global warming" is a greater threat to civilization than ISIS, and that he is venerated by a gaggle of fools who think he's the greatest thing to happen to this country since the advent of bottled beer? These loons are inflicted with that notorious liberal disease called CRI (Cranial Rectal Inversion). Being a liberal makes it almost impossible to recover from this disease.
