So.  It seems there may be a nationwide stop to the customs agents' computer system.  Everyone coming into the country is standing in long, endless lines at JFK, Dulles, etc., as customs agents process by hand.  Seems to be a hack of some kind.

He's destroying in one way and another every damned system in the country.  Nothing but a smoking ruin is going to be left.

The $15 minimum wage bill has all but died in the Senate
Republicans in the Senate won’t consider any wage increases.

https://www.vox.com/2019/8/16/20807610/raise-the-wage-act-15-minimum-wage-bill

Quote

 

It’s official: The Senate has no plans to raise the federal minimum wage anytime soon.

A spokesperson for Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN), who chairs the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions, told Vox that the committee is not considering a bill that would raise the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour, or any other increase, for that matter.

Republican opposition to the Raise the Wage Act in the Senate was expected, but the news essentially ends — for now — a years-long campaign to raise wages for millions of workers by lifting the current $7.25 minimum hourly wage.

Judy Conti, director of government affairs for the National Employment Law Project, said that blocking the bill will end up hurt Republican senators.

“Even the Chamber of Commerce acknowledges that it’s time to raise the federal minimum wage,” Conti wrote in an email to Vox. “[Alexander] may be retiring next year and happy to ride that time out without doing anything productive, but other members of the Senate don’t have quite the comfort level to be as complacent as he is.”

In the House, things went differently. A total of 231 members voted in favor of the Raise the Wage Act, including three Republicans, and 199 opposed it.

Its passage was a short-lived victory for fast-food workers, who have been pushing for a $15 minimum wage across the country for more than five years. And the bill would have had a huge impact on working families. It was expected to boost pay for 27 million US workers, lifting 1.3 million households out of poverty, according to an analysis released earlier this month by congressional economists.

New Yorker Satire That Denmark Wants To Buy The U.S. Has Twitter Wits Swooning

“During the Trump regime, pretty much everything in the U.S., including its government, has most definitely been for sale,” the magazine jokes.

There was an interview I heard on the radio this week with a guest who I think was a PhD, but I regret that I can't remember their name.

They were talking Trump and saying that it's smarter to attack Trump not as a racist but emphasizing that he uses race to divide us.  I can see that this is challenging as Trump so obviously is a racist, but part of the idea obviously is that when someone like Beto, inspiring as it might be, calls Trump a racist, it in effect calls all Trump supporters racist as well, which has the effect of making them dig it.

I can't do the interview justice here, but it was quite convincing.

Andy Ngo is such a shitbag. Tries to paint the American Guard neo nazi group as victims when they tried to kidnap someone onto their bus and tried hitting people with hammers that tried to help the guy they grabbed.

The fucking PPB needs to be dealt with and abolished. Wheeler needs to be sent on his way as well. They actually are trying to say the proud boys didn’t get special treatment lol. Fucking please. Ngo is coming to my neck of the woods with Sargon of Akkad on August 31. Already putting the wheels in motion to try and get it cancelled and try to get a protest outside the place when they show up.

Nichols is a frustrating and an especially annoying twitter presence, he's been trying to moderate the Dems for the last couple years

When the most vocal democrats sound and act crazy as they have over the last couple years people will try to moderate that for the same reason they'd try to put out a kitchen fire.   Because it's not good for anyone.   And you would naturally find it a bother, because interventions aren't popular among the intervened.

Shit, I've just has an epiphany. This trade war he's manufactured with China... He's just jealous of their wall isn't he?

China has been economically at war with us for years, picking our pockets electronically to nab patents and steal intellectual property and then undersell us which drives our companies out of business and people lose their livelihood, for which your noted compassion is noticeably absent.   China plays games with its currency in an open attempt to spear us using our own weapon of choice, market economics.  Constant cyber attacks.  This is a game of thrones waged to destroy our futures in eutero, an invisible assassination of our future viability.  Something we numbnuts don't recognize for the true threat it is. 

The economic war already exists, Trump didn't manufacture it, he recognized that China is waging war on us and he stood up to it.   The article quoted above of course gets it backward and describes Xi as standing up to us.  Xi was already standing for a while, standing over us while this nation remained seated masturbating on the toilet.  To do nothing about China's unfair one-way trade imbalance is its own form of acute cowardice.   Or are we in love with China on here and give them a free pass cuz of the communism we wish we could share in.

Another wish for communism?  Russia's media isn't doing so hot.   Our media has fallen into the hole of letting ratings drive everything they do.  That is tied to money, yes, but the solution isn't so much about bashing capitalism as returning some dignity to the profession, hiring journalists who have some renewed backbone, integrity, who take their egos and opinions out of it when they do the news.   The media needs to climb out of the hellhole of laziness they've dug themselves into.   Newpapers need to stop caving in and changing their hidelines whenever someone to the left of them bitches, because the folks on the extreme end will then make you cave all the time.  They know the truth doesn't serve their interests and will move to squash it.   Now we're seeing the acute cowardice of the newsrooms to fight back as extremists tell them what's okay to print.   Spineless pervs dug their own hole.  What's funny is these all-important ratings they're chasing are low as fuck for msnbc, cnn, et al.   Yet they keep going with it.  (Another definition of crazy.)

This is a rallying cry every election, so don't worry it's sure to happen.  Claiming that the right is the source of racial division is another prime example of how the democrat pins their personal failings on the right and labels the opposition with your own worst qualities.   The dems stir up racial divide every time in their stump speeches at their convention and then blame republicans for the heated environment they just heated up themselves.  Because the opposite of the truth is what works best for the left.  Because they don't got shit if they're being honest.  The party that presided over slavery is now the enlightened expert on calling out racism.  Yeah, no surprise there.  Dems perfected it, so of course they know racism best, but like a drug shipment it's better if someone else carries their product through customs for them.  So they slap that racism label on others.    But dems are lacking in self control so they've started dipping into their own supply, believing their own bullshit.   They're calling out racism more often than they put fake meat on a burger.  They're heavily addicted to the hard drug of unfair argumentation by going nuclear right out of the gate.  And the result?   The word racism has lost all meaning.  Congratulations.   You misapplied the word until nobody believes when you cry wolf anymore.  And that's a great disservice you've done to the people who are still suffering ACTUAL racism.  Where's the compassion for them?

Well, what you just let slip is who was actually inciting the violence.  That's who tends to get arrested in those situations.   

Speaking in general terms.   I don't follow every counter-protest's specifics, because white supremecists have been irrelevant my whole life long, and they remain just as irrelevant today.   They are ignored, have always been seen as fools by normal people.   That's the natural reaction to them.  But now you guys are listening to everything they say.   Which is perverse.   And you're doing all you can to prop them up and make sure everyone hears about them ad nauseum.   Which is you stirring up racial divide.   For the purpose of artificially connecting the right to racist groups to tar and feather the opponent instead of winning on the merits of your argument.  Going so far to avoid real debate is another showing of acute intellectual cowardice.  Or you just know that the truth doesn't serve you because your agenda is traitorous and that's why it's time to drop that label on Trump, because that's what dems do.

Not that Trump is super great.  But good god do you still not get why you lost to him?   It's because he's the non-traitor.

There may be some people crying wolf a bit. But I think some people have their heads very much buried in the sand.

No white supremacist ever called me n*. But then again I'm white, so why would they present a problem or threat to me personally?
