(Chicago Tribune) After marching to McDonald’s headquarters today, 10 protesters from a crowd of more than 1,000 were allowed on McDonald’s property to deliver a petition–calling for a $15 per hour wages for the company’s front line workers.

“We want a fair share,” workers protesters and agitators chanted.

What is fairness? What maybe is ‘fair’ for you isn’t ‘fair’ for me? Maybe McDonald’s workers should be just happy to have a job?

When government mandates a ‘minimum wage’ then businesses make adjustments to pay for the added costs writes CATO Institute such as reducing hiring, cutting employee work hours, reducing benefits and charging higher prices. Some policymakers believe that companies simply absorb the costs of minimum wage increases through reduced profits…

  • If $15 per hour is a so called ‘living wage’ why not $20 per hour?
    Better yet, maybe $50 per hour or why not a cool $100.00 per hour?

Obama: Private Sector Doing Fine; Climate Change Natl Security Threat — 109 Million+ Americans Receiving Food Assistance

Obamanomics...(WFB) The taxpayers spent $100 Million providing food assistance last year to 109,930,000 Americans, up from 47,102,780 just 2.50 yrs ago or from 45,794,474 in 2011

  • Flashback: Remember when Obama claimed the private sector is doing fine.

On Wednesday, President Obama told Coast Guard Academy graduates “that climate change constitutes a serious threat to global security, an immediate risk to our national security…”

Riiight… If one is so naive and self-delusional to forget about ISIS committing genocide against Christians, the U.S. labor participation rate is an anemic 62.8% and the federal deficit is $18.234 Trillion+ up from $6.991 Trillion when Obama first took office.

Pacific Ocean Water, Water Everywhere: California Faces More Water Restrictions & Big Water Rate Hikes Proposed Due to Drought

California DroughtCalifornia ‘Sign of the Times’ –Image: Waterguy559@Twitter

(Fox News Los Angeles) California Water Cops have OKd more restrictions on lawn watering and are adding new limits on water use by businesses as the drought persists.

The State Water Resources Control Board voted unanimously Tuesday, to extend and expand its emergency drought regs–California residents can not turn their sprinklers on everyday under the new rules, customers must ask for water at restaurants and be given an opportunity to decline fresh sheets and towels at hotels–violators face up to $500 a day in fines but its up to local water Cops to enforce the rules.

Earlier this month,the San Jose Mercury News reported that three of the largest Bay Area water agencies — the Santa Clara Water Valley District, East Bay Municipal Water District and the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission, that serve some 5.8 million people are considering water rate hikes by as much as 30% this year because they are selling a lot less water as customers are conserving due to the drought.

California water regulators get one coming and going. Should one waste water, they’re subject to fines and should one conserve too much water, they face increased costs due to their conservation.

Last year I wrote here here and here if not for California’s wacky environmentalist policies and want for more overly burdensome and crippling regulations that are driving away business investment and opportunity, legislators in Sacramento over the years, could have invested resources wisely for the future by constructing life-saving desalination plants along the coastline such as Israel’s Sorek Desalination Plant that provides 26,000 cubic meters or 7 million gallons of clean portable water every hour to over 1.5 million people.

While Santa Barbara has finally seen the light and ‘may’ modernize and finally reactivate the Charles E. Meyer Desalination Facility after being mothballed for the past 23 years, much more can be done to utilize the vast natural resources abundant and readily available but unfortunately, still under utilized.

Obama Vetoes Keystone Jobs Bill as Labor Participation Rate is an Anemic 62.9%

Cartoonist Gary Varvel: Blocking Keystone XL Jobs(FOX News) President Obama today followed through with his threat to veto bipartisan legislation authorizing the Keystone XL-Pipeline and the 42,000+ new ‘private sector’ shovel ready infrastructure jobs which Obama’s own State Dept said in 2014 that would be created nationwide, not to mention the thousands of residual jobs in other sectors that would have been created, together with the permanent jobs that would be necessary to maintain the pipeline.

It should be noted, that Obama’s veto of thousands of good paying jobs comes at a time when the U.S. labor participation rate fell to a 36 year low of 62.7% in December, 2014 improving just slightly to 62.9% in January and when U.S. homeownership rates hit a 20 year low of 64% according to the latest data from the U.S. Census Bureau.
