I came across this article from the Los Angeles Times a couple of days ago and something popped out at me. I’ll bold face it when it appears in the article. And then we’ll talk about it:
San Francisco leads the way with $15 minimum-wage ballot measure
By Lee Romney
June 15, 2014, 5:39 PM|reporting from SAN FRANCISCO
Eleven years ago, San Francisco set precedent with the first citywide minimum-wage boost, giving it the highest wage floor in the nation. Another first soon required all employers to provide paid sick days. Yet another mandated healthcare for all..
Now, the city that recently won dubious distinction for the fastest-growing wealth divide is leading again.
Let’s look at the timeline: San Francisco – THE most liberal, most Democrat Party-worshiping, city on earth – imposed their “highest wage floor in the nation.”
And then what happened as a result? The city that “won the dubious distinction for the FASTEST-GROWING WEALTH DIVIDE.” That’s what happened.
Because San Francisco is FASCIST. And FASCISM loves to pick who wins and who loses, who benefits and who gets punished. Small businesses and new businesses that can’t afford to pay exorbitant wages get chased out, and the big, established businesses and the businesses that are started by wealthy elitists get to grow and grow and grow. And the wealth divide is the inevitable result of liberal fascism.
What is true of fascists in San Francisco is just as true for our Fascist-in-Chief, Barack Hussein Obama:
If Obama thinks he can pivot away from the failures of Obamacare towards the cause of relieving “income inequality,” he’s going to find even greater failures there already on the part of his administration.
The vast majority of gains in wealth have gone to the top earners, making income inequality increase drastically under Obama. In fact, of the last three presidents, the income gap didn’t change overall during the Bush years, increased second most during Clinton’s time, and has increased the most with only 5 years under Obama’s belt.
As we reported last year when Obama was loudly denouncing the nation’s “income inequality”:
President Obama… is presiding under epic Wall Street earnings (they crashed under Bush, remember?), deteriorating income levels for the middle class, an increasingly part-time nation partly fueled by the looming employer mandate of Obamacare, and long-term unemployment so persistent that millions of people are dropping off the labor force grid (that would be why the official unemployment rate is slowly going down).
And the Obamanomics failure extends to falling income across the board for the average American family. During the “worst recession since the Great Depression,” the real (inflation-adjusted) median annual household income fell by 1.8%, but fell by an incredible 4.4% during Obama’s “recovery.” That comes to each family making $2,400 less per year during Obama’s regime.
You would think the press would do its job and continue to question the president about his dismal record under this metric he keeps harping about, especially since the stimulus and Obamacare were so costly and supposed to relieve all of American’s ills.
Still waiting on the sea levels to lower, as well.
Notice, ALL of Obama’s regulations, all of his tax increases, all of his war on natural energy such as coal, oil and natural gas and all of his elevation of costly energy boondoggles, all of his policies of picking winners and losers, has done nothing but cause the wealth divide to soar, soar, SOAR.
What is interesting is that not only was Obama’s wealth gap worse than George W. Bush’s, but so also was Bill Clinton’s. And keep in mind, this is the Bill Clinton who largely governed as a moderate, having renounced the big government liberalism that the Democrat Party embraces. He assured us that under his presidency, “The era of big government is over.” Because his “big government” period early in his presidency failed and failed the angry American people, and he had the wisdom to recognize it.
Obama brought it back. And Hillary Clinton will grow it into even more of a fatal cancer than it already is under Obama.
We consider Obama’s policies and the result they have had on something that it turns out poor people need to live – FOOD – and we can only marvel at Obama’s hatred of the poor:
Price Index for Meats, Poultry, Fish & Eggs Rockets to All-Time High
June 17, 2014 – 11:20 AM
By Ali Meyer
(CNSNews.com) – The seasonally-adjusted price index for meats, poultry, fish, and eggs hit an all-time high in May, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).
In January 1967, when the BLS started tracking this measure, the index for meats, poultry, fish, and eggs was 38.1. As of last May, it was 234.572. By this January, it hit 240.006. By April, it hit 249.362. And, in May, it climbed to a record 252.832.
“The index for meats, poultry, fish and eggs has risen 7.7 percent over the span [last year],” says the BLS. “The index for food at home increased 0.7 percent, its largest increase since July 2011. Five of the six major grocery store food group indexes increased in May. The index for meats, poultry, fish, and eggs rose 1.4 percent in May after a 1.5 increase in April, with virtually all its major components increasing,” BLS states.
In January 1980, when the BLS started tracking the price of this commodity, fresh whole chickens cost $0.70 per pound. By this May 2014, fresh whole chickens cost $1.56 per pound.
Imagine, if you make it vastly more expensive to grow food, while issuing one crippling regulation after another, food will become more expensive. You’d think that was common sense, but it is like nuclear physics or neurosurgery to liberals.
Liberals believe you can hate job creators and love jobs. You can’t. These people are pathologically morally insane and their moral insanity is bearing the fruit that insanity produces: fewer and fewer jobs, jobs that pay less and less, part-time jobs because of ObamaCare, a lower standard of living, higher food costs, higher fuel costs, more pressure on more families just to keep their heads above water.
Hillary Clinton arrogantly, self-righteously, and in the face of all reality to the contrary, claimed that she and husband Bill were “dead broke” when they left the White House. You want to talk about someone who is so utterly and so profoundly out of touch with reality and with ordinary people that it is beyond unreal?
“Dead broke” means asking your parents if you can have your old room back. Or if they’ve passed, “dead broke” means begging a friend to let you sleep on their couch. Or living in a shelter. It doesn’t mean getting multi-million dollar loans to finance palatial “houses” while giving speeches for tens of thousands of dollars a pop.
But this out-of-touch crony capitalist fascist is actually going to run on the wealth divide that liberal policies impose on society.
These liberals are truly and simply nothing more than pure, cynical liars who count on the people’s ignorance and media propaganda (much the way Hitler and Stalin did) to secure their positions and entrench themselves.
