The Last Of The Millenniums

Just because it always has been, doesn't mean it always will be

In Washington State, we passed an  initiative in 1998

slowly raising the minimum wage via rate of inflation. Right now, we have the highest minimum wage (State) in the nation.

But again….slowly.

Poor Uncle Moneybags

Poor Uncle Moneybags

The demise of the economy of Washington state following the minimum wage increase is not in evidence:An ADP index that combines both factors shows the Evergreen State far outpacing any other state in growth during the fourth quarter of 2015 compared with the year-earlier period.

Washington earned an index score of 117.9 — topping the national average of 106.8 and other states such as California, 108.7; Texas, 108.8; and New York, 105.4.

“Washington is really overperforming on employment growth,” said Ahu Yildirmaz, head of research for ADP, a payroll services company.

Gosh, you mean that YUGE increase in the minimum wage didn’t kill the economy? Why, some might draw the conclusion that when workers have more money to spend, they spend it. Cannot have that!

Republicans want Bernie Sanders to win so that every Democrat will have to support and explain Bernie’s wanting to raise everybody’s taxes.
Most media are putting disclaimers on this poll – some – especially right wing and Progressive media outlets aren’t – wanting and hoping you’ll just accept it.

Feeling The Bern – ‘Bernie Is Too Far Left To Get Anything Done? This ONE FACT Puts That Lie To Bed’

1aa

This is so lame. Comparing % of passed and or co-sponsored legislation passed and ignoring time in office.

 

Hillary Clinton – US Senator – 8 years

Bernie Sanders
US Representative – 1991 to 2007- 16 years
US Senator – 2007 to present = 10 years
Bernie Sanders total years = 26 years in Federal
office.
‘We back this up with proven numbers. Go to
Congress.gov. You can look up every single bill
that present (and past) members of Congress have
ever sponsored/co-sponsored during their entire
time as elected representatives of the people’.

‘Here’s what you’ll find once you break down the
stats like we did’:

“Bernie Sanders sponsored 780 bills. He also
co-sponsored 5,430 bills. Out of his sponsored
bills, only three became law, meaning his
success rate = .38 percent. Once you factor in his sponsored bills with his co-sponsored bills, his success rate isn’t all that much improved. Out of 6,210 bills, only 206 became law’.

‘That brings his total success rate to 3.3 percent’.

”Not that great, right? But, look at Clinton…’.
“Hillary sponsored 703 laws and guess what, only
3 became law (the same as Bernie). That gives
her a success rate of .42 percent”.

‘That’s barely above Sanders. But – take a look at what happens when you factor in her co-sponsored bills. Out of the 3,379 bills she supported, only 77 became law’.

‘That gives her a total success rate of 2.2 percent’.

And Hillary had 18 fewer years in office too!!

teabagger Alert!! – ‘FBI finds trench of human feces at cultural site on Oregon refuge’

It’s time to use force to stop these so called
‘patroit’ occupiations and standoffs.

‘The cost of the standoff will likely run into
the millions of dollars, with local and state
agencies looking to the federal government – and
the arrested occupiers – to shoulder the bulk of
the bills’.

The short is, the teabaggers, used a bulldozer
to dig a trench where “significant amounts of
human feces” in a trench at an outdoor camping
area that was either on or next to a “sensitive
cultural site” of the Burns Paiute Tribe.

‘The FBI said it has found a trench of human
feces and a road excavated on or next to a
sensitive cultural site with artifacts at the
Oregon wildlife refuge where armed men staged a
standoff with authorities, according to court
records filed on Tuesday’.

‘The filing came after the FBI on Friday said it
was working with the Burns Paiute Tribe to
identify damage to the tribe’s artifacts and
sacred burial grounds at the Malheur National
Wildlife Refuge during the six-week occupation’.

‘U.S. Attorney Billy Williams of Oregon wrote in
the filing that investigators found “significant
amounts of human feces” in a trench at an
outdoor camping area that was either on or next
to a “sensitive cultural site.”

“Occupiers appear to have excavated two large
trenches and an improvised road on or adjacent
to grounds containing sensitive artifacts,” he
wrote’.

‘Williams also said in the filing – which was a
response to occupiers’ requests to have their
attorneys allowed onto the site – that firearms
and explosives were found, and it was feared
vehicles and buildings could be booby trapped.’
