Fire Them...

Where is Donald Trump when we need him?


If you have to hold a sign saying're not
The strike is organized by, you guessed it, the Service Employees International Union.  They are arguing for a $15 per hour minimum wage.  One of the employees mentioned in the article was fired by Domino's Pizza (read the article, Domino's Pizza says it was for other reasons...but I am good with WALKING OUT ON YOUR SHIFT as a reason).  The employee is looking for help from the National Labor Relations Board.  Yes, the one Obama tried to staff unconstitutionally (it is hard, you see, he was a 'constitutional law professor' in name only....).


If you have a job, and you are on strike, you should quit (or get fired) and let somebody else have the job.  If you are looking for full-time employment, you should try to work more hours...not walk out on your shift.

*It should be noted that I took Mrs. Bannon out to lunch on Sunday (a rare occasion) and each restaurant we considered....had a "Help Wanted" sign in the window.

This is just more evidence that there is a growing and alarming disconnect between the American citizen and the real world.  Sales of smart phones and luxury items continue to skyrocket as 1 in 10 are out of work.  Government welfare in all sorts of forms is on the rise, as is the average weight of the recipients.

If the public has lost their minds - it is no secret the government is leading the way.  Medical care costs are the government passes laws adding more middlemen.  We have a problem with illegal the government tries to pass laws to make them legal.  And of course, I must mention that as we are cutting back military spending and benching our military aircraft...we are sending billions of tax payer dollars to foreign countries for them to spend on their militaries.

It reads like a chapter from Atlas Shrugged.

I hate to quote my own blog (going up today at 0800 PST) because it seems narcissistic. However, I'll risk it because it's on point with what you've written.

As of April 2013, there were 47.5 million Americans on food stamps. Using the White House's job growth number, the 15 million increase in recipients means more than two people went on food stamps for each job the administration says it has created.

The US Department of Agriculture estimates that 101 million people take part in at least one of the 15 food programs offered by the agency, at a cost of $114 billion in fiscal 2012. That compares with America's 97.2 million full-time private-sector workers in 2012.

Food Stamp Nation is now larger than the entire U.S. private-sector work force.

The unemployment statistics in America only measure people who are receiving unemployment insurance and disregard the self-employed who lost work and those who fell off the unemployment payment rolls since they never did find work. Since February 2009, the first full month of Obama's presidency, 9.5 million Americans have dropped out of the labor force. Nearly 90 million working-age Americans are not working today. Doing the math, 1.3 Americans have dropped out of the labor force for every job the administration claims to have created. --and-- The Obama Administration fails to report how many jobs created are part time (particularly do to the disastrous ObamaCare program).

Yeah, but those are just facts...
