About Me

Coffee addict. Political progressive.

Call out Sen McConnell for covering up the crimes of 1/6.

Is it true?

The cover-up is almost always worse than the crime?

Those who silence investigations admit their own guilt.

Clandestine, let's re-examine that word.

Notice how Rethugs love their official secretive meetings.

Notice how everything bad is stonewalled by them. Any investigation into Trump, Putin, etc.

If they only knew, innocence will exonerate them. If they were truly innocent.

Investigations can and will set the innocent free.

Then, why does Trump fear investigations?

Why does the GOP fear a 1/6 investigation?

If liberal antifa members caused 1/6, the GOP would be trampling over each other to call for an investigation.

As the GOP works to silence any thought of investigating 1/6.

The GOP's writing is on the wall, so blatantly. Cover-up Trump's crimes. Cover up 1/6's criminal insurrection.

Clandestine activities.

Again, think of it like this..
If they were innocent, investigations would exonerate them. They should welcome investigations.

Unless they're guilty and have a crime to hide.

Did Manchin already forget his miserable time in the senate minority?

When Dems were the senate minority..

Did Manchin have fun as a minority senator?

Manchin, are you yearning for the golden days of past when the GOP controlled your chamber?

Stay on the path your on, Joe. Steady your course.

The GOP has grand plans for you. You can pour their tea.

Joe, its been 6 months. Have you forgotten how ugly it is under Rethug control.

Help us win by helping people vote freely and fairly.

For some reason, I know you have it in you.

Sen Manchin, your eternal legacy will be that of a do-nothing obstructionist.

The filibuster is an enemy of democracy.

To Sen Manchin, it's not too late to change your legacy by supporting your Democratic colleagues and ending the filibuster.

Save your legacy by getting on board or history books will forever immortalize you as an obstructionist.

Get vaccinated or get the fuck out of the USA.

Leave the USA if you're that fucking stupid.

Trumpster vaccine deniers are a cancer that needs to leave the USA.

Find another country to spread your fascist anti-science stupidity.

Vaccine denial is unpatriotic.

Start spreading the word. Call them unpatriotic!

Using reverse psychology, how to encourage Trumpsters to get vaccinated..

To the TrumpQster

Don't get vaccinated. If there is a higher power, maybe that power will inflict you with covid and take you out.

Your death will help us defeat Trumpism. Or prepare to live out your life with an oxygen tube, like my 80 year old Trump loving uncle. Funny, he's changed his tune since. He can barely breathe anymore.

Fewer Trumpsters, fewer votes for Trump.

Do society a favor and expedite your death.

Yes, this may sound cruel and terrible, but I'm done giving a fuck about these assholes.

Get vaccinated or find another country to live in.

Higher nationwide wages and/or a living wage can create a recession-proof economy..

by putting money in everyone's pocket.

It's why countries like Sweden, Norway, Finland etc don't feel the effects of global recessions.

Meanwhile the chest-thumping USA has nearly collapsed multiple times since the Great Depression, requiring massive government bail-outs to save capitalism from itself. It happened again in 2007-08. In 2020, Covid brought on a new kind of near-collapse. I still see vacant, boarded up businesses everywhere I look. Casualties of a global pandemic. Govt stimulus helped our nation survive by putting money in peoples pockets with unemployment benefits and stimulus checks. Vaccines will set us free.

Recessions happen when the poorest 90% of a population goes broke, from low wages to lay-offs.

Keeping 90% of our population poor has us wandering straight forward toward the next recession, the next housing collapse, the next banking crisis.

This cycle will only continue to repeat itself until we open our eyes and push our country to raise wages.

Living wages can act like a brick wall to the next incoming recession.

As long as humans have a need to eat, have a roof over our heads, need clothing, transportation, clean water, sewage and sanitation services etc, we will always have the basis of a strong economy


Its that fucking simple.

McDonald's Raises Pay for U.S. Restaurant Workers

Source: Wall Street Journal

McDonald’s Corp. said it would raise pay for employees at company-owned restaurants in the U.S., one of the latest companies to bolster wages and benefits as they struggle to hire workers.

The burger giant said Thursday it would increase wages for more than 36,500 hourly workers by an average of 10% over the next several months. Nonmanagerial workers at the chain’s roughly 660 company-owned restaurants in the U.S. would earn at least $11 to $17 an hour at entry levels after the increases, McDonald’s said. Supervisors would earn an hourly minimum of $15 to $20. Nonmanagerial employees at company-owned stores earlier this year earned an average of nearly $12 an hour, McDonald’s said, and supervisors earned some $16 to $18 an hour.

McDonald’s owns a fraction of its 13,900 U.S. restaurants, around 95% of which are operated by franchisees. Owners have said they are reviewing pay and benefits at their stores. The National Owners Association, a group representing U.S. franchisees, said in an email to its members on Sunday that strong sales should allow operators to raise menu prices if they choose to compensate for higher spending on pay and benefits.

A shortage of workers across the U.S. economy has prompted some employers to boost pay and benefits as they hunt for workers. McDonald’s, Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc., Applebee’s, KFC and other chains have said they want to hire tens of thousands of workers in the coming months as they reopen dining rooms and seek to better staff their restaurants.

This mostly applies to company owned restaurants which only makes up about 5% of Mcdonald's with the other 95% being operated by franchisees.

I'm curious to see how franchisees will respond to this. If franchisees get on board it would be a big step in the right direction but I have my doubts that they will.

Still, one can hope.
