Minimum Wage 
This is a much more complex situation than merely a governing body dictating more laws to the folks.

Minimum wage jobs were starting points in ones career, never meant to be a career, just a paid internship if you will.  These jobs are for kids in school, jobs that require that you be at an appointed place at an appointed time; learn a work ethic, and possibly some future skill set that you currently lack.   As an example, I learned how to “really mop a floor” 40 odd years ago.

Some mom and pop shops may only be able to afford some laborer like this. They might be for menial tasks that also keep teens busy and out of trouble while teaching them some work ethic.

The bottom line is, few companies are started with the concept of creating jobs.  Businesses are about creating a product or service, and employees are a “necessary evil” in most cases; as there are so many regulations and laws that companies must adhere to when one has employees.  It has not become easier over the years, quite the opposite!

On top of existing regulations, Obamacare has changed the paradigm of the fabric of business vs. employee / minimum wage.

Full-time jobs have been modified to part-time, to avoid healthcare all together.  Along with the part-time designation came more employees and less pay.  Retail giants were one of the first on the bandwagon and many industries have followed suite to make certain that the full-time employee count was for folks that were indispensable.

The new immigration law that was enacted by Obama has once again changed the way that business work.  I recently visited a McDonalds where there was not one English-speaking employee in the place, at least, which English was their native language.

If trends continue, I perceive that more Americans will be surviving on the government tit, as the part-time-minimum-wage-jobs of today will go to more of these types of folks who will be happy to have them, as they do not qualify for “free stuff,” yet.

To your question: why not pay your employees more than minimum wage if you can?  I have a client that does.  He pays his people much higher than scale, and is learning that you cannot buy good employees.  A very small percentage of the people that you hire have a work ethic that you the business owner has.  They possess the Fred Flintstone work ethic of when the whistle blows, Yabba Dabba Doo!

I don’t know!

Listening to the news, talk radio or even reading the news online, wouldn’t it be refreshing if someone simply admitted that they did not know, vs. making a statement that is blatantly fabricated?

It is easy to tell why some news outlets have so few in their audience.  Even the most desperate of viewers wants it to be true so they watch and listen and parrot what they hear which is again blatantly false!

There is an old axiom regarding telling a lie enough where it becomes fact.  I think some in the news media are guilty of this.  I think that many in this administration are guilty of this.

Yesterday it was pointed out by Hillary Clinton and other liberal outlets that the GOP will take us back to the stone age if they had their way.  Vaccinations are totally safe according to their science.

Do you trust anything that any government says?

Thimerosal is a mercury additive to vaccines, which are “multi-dose.”  This is a way that the drug companies increase profits by putting many doses in one vial instead of individual vials.   Problem, while thimerosal is effective at killing any bacteria that might make it back into the vial it is also linked to neurological disorders, especially in children.

Let’s think about this pragmatically for just a moment.  Mercury was so problematic, so hazardous that the government did away with all batteries that were made with mercury; forcing many to junk electronic equipment that needed that particular battery.

Mercury is so toxic that you cannot throw those CFL light bulbs in the trash, they have to be treated specially.  Mercury is so bad that there are specific cleanup methods for the breakage of a florescent light or computer monitor or neon sign as they contain small amounts of mercury.

Handling mercury is incredibly toxic as it will go right through your skin and research on laboratory animals  prove that mercury seems to deposit itself in the brain.  Could there be an autism link?  Mercury, brain… let me think…..  “I don’t know,” but if it smells like a fart…… Do you really want to chance it?

Therefore, mercury is bad…yet it is perfectly safe to have it injected into your body.  Really, Hillary, now that you tweeted that the earth is round maybe we should check, because I do not believe anything that you say!  Someone who leaves the white house claiming they were broke when in fact they had millions, I just don’t know.

All vaccines for children have a Thimerosal free product and if you really care about your child, pay the extra and get the vaccine without the mercury “single dose.”  As the matter of fact, if it is not good for kids, it is not good for adults either so, I always opt for the thimerosal free product myself!

I don’t always get vaccinated; but when I do….

Between the lies of this administration, and the IRS, I do not believe anything that this government says.  It is one of those “I hear you but,” let me check it myself.

Factually, it is politically expedient to lie to the people.  Much like the movie Mars Attacks, “horrible movie” but; do you remember the Martians telling the earthlings stop running, we are here as friends, right before they blasted them with their ray guns?  Why? Because people are lazy and will not fact check!

mars-attacks-banner-art Wait, don’t run, we are your friend….

That is the way that I feel about most of the liberal news media and of course, anything that comes out of Josh’s mouth, not to mention his boss.  2016 cannot come soon enough for me, and I hope that the voters this time pay attention to the blather that pervades the airwaves and ignore the millions of social media hacks, trolls and other vermin that seek to get another liberal liar in to the White House.

When you have to spend over a Billion Dollars to “buy the presidency,” what does that tell you?

Well, “I don’t know,” what people were thinking this last time around but I can tell you, I hope that they pay attention to the fact that they are not better off today than they were 6 years ago.  We should not have pulled out of Iraq, and we should not be pissing off our allies.

I Lost! #CardsAgainstHumanity

I Lost! #CardsAgainstHumanity

I Lost!

As a competitive type “A” kind of person; I lost, and in retrospect; its not a bad thing.

typeapersonality1

Other than, an ongoing game of Scrabble that I have been playing for about ten years now, I really do not play games.  Time is much too precious to me to spend it on frivolity.

I was encouraged by friends to attend a “game night” with family and friends that I fight not to attend even though it is a semi annual event.  I do not mind the eating part and the socializing but, as I said, I am competitive, sometimes to a fault.  Loosing is not in my make-up ergo I can become a little over bearing in the process.  So, why do it?

I do not keep up with trending games and or any other activities where time would be wasted.  Not judging you if that is your thing, me personally, if I am not creating or working or helping someone; I will catch up on some DVR things or, a good book or sleep.

The game they had picked out was Cards Against Humanity.

CardsAgainstHumanity-619-386 515e070d9c9ff2c856230aa377707f1e_large

Who dreams up this stuff?  At first I was not sure how this was to play out, (no pun intended) but it took no time at all to see that the game appeals to the least human part of us.  Or, maybe the most depending upon your take on life.  Calvin said that we are all “totally depraved” this game would prove him correct or at least there is evidence that he may have been on to something.  From the people who created it to the people who play it.

As a person with a very good vocabulary, I have to admit that there were words that I had to look up.  Once looked up; I am just about sorry that I know them now.   Most of them came up in the “urban dictionary” and were of a nature that would never be used in polite society.

I would equate this game to verbal pornography.  The winners are those that gain the cards that are the most perverse and apply them at the right time so that the reader of such cards laughs the most.  The perverse deviance of the situations, and or vernacular make the person who is reading them laugh or provide shock value!

If you have ever added the words “in bed” to a fortune cookie, imagine that on steroids!

Fortune-cookie-shutterstock_102354181.jpg fortune-cookie (1)

Allow me to be totally honest here.  I laughed; I laughed a lot.  While I could not bring myself to play the cards that might have won, I enjoyed the mutual laughter of the group.

Laughing is contagious. When an entire group of people is laughing hysterically, it is easy to also be amused.

To the cons….

The game really creates mental imagery of a type that I would not want in my head.  I do not watch certain types of movies or read certain material, as I do not want that rattling around my brain.  Garbage in garbage out is not a bad mantra to employ through life, so I guard what I put in.

The pros….

After reading to this point, I bet you were thinking that I would not have a pro….

There is a time and place for everything under heaven, yes even this game.

The fault that I mentioned earlier goes along with the simple fact that I take life way too seriously.  I do not let my “hair down” so to speak.

This game is so out there that it causes one to “let their hair down” if they will allow it and unbelievably, that is a good thing.  Remember, while you are here, breathing air; you are “of this world.”  The people who created that game are of this world.  Your friends and family who laughed at the extreme R rated stuff in that game are “of this world.”

While I would certainly not make a habit out of this game, or “any game” for that matter, a slight distraction from reality tends to jolt you back into this world far enough to realize just how wrapped up in your world that you are.  Your world may not be “the world,” hence knowing what is going on in this world through games like this or yes, R rated movies are not totally a bad thing.

It is like fantasizing.  As a child, we fantasized about different things.  Some of those may have been about what we wanted to do as we imagined ourselves blasting off into space or driving a fire engine!  Some of those may have been about intimate moments with some movie star.  Some of us may still fantasize and that is perfectly ok.

The problem starts when you try to make the fantasy a reality.

Living vicariously through football players on the field or John Wayne shooting the next bad person is ok.  Remember who you are and you are neither of those people.  Movies, much like that game are meant to take you away from this world for a little while.  To you ladies out there; there are few who ride white horses and come to your rescue.  Enjoy the book or movie but, come back to earth before you walk among the common folks of earth.
