My favourite part of that was when the students still thought that there was anything to negotiate about after they were told what the deal was. Thick as bricks.

Hey, let's talk $15/hr minimum wages & subsequent fallout...

California minimum wage hike hits L.A. apparel industry: 'The exodus has begun'

Quote:
Felix Seo has been making clothes for wholesale in downtown for 30 years. His company, Joompy, used to count giant retailers like Forever 21 among its clients. But as prices have gone up in recent years, he said, those fast-fashion peddlers are no longer giving him orders.

"I used to pay $5 to get this sewn, and now it costs $6.50," Seo said, holding up a patterned dress. "But my customer doesn't want to pay that, so I can't sell it anymore."

To survive, Seo, 59, said Joompy may have to start importing goods instead of producing them locally. "It will be impossible to make clothes in Los Angeles," he said.
M'bold.

Further on Special Snowflakes.

Ohio U. College Republicans under siege: ‘So much hate … we don’t have a say … attacking us’

Quote:
The College Republicans at Ohio University say they are under siege by peers for painting a message on the campus free speech wall defending the First Amendment.

In a barrage of cyber harassment over the last day, they have been called racists, described as Klansmen, and accused of literally threatening the campus — all over a painted message that read “Trigger warning: there are no safe spaces in real life! You can’t wall off the 1st Amendment.”
M'bold.

Good for them for standing up to the crazies...

More:

Quote:
Parkhill said it’s ironic College Republicans have been accused of threats when it’s their group that has been physically threatened by a fellow student who tweeted he would “beat the **** out of whoever put that bullshit on the wall.”

“That is an actual threat against us,” Parkill said. “Don’t act like we’re the ones posing unsafe ideas when we are the ones being attacked here.”
M'bold.

The compassionate, intellectual left...

Even more...

Schools nationwide spiral into mass hysteria over pro-Trump messages

Quote:
A campaign calling on students to write pro-Trump chalk messages on college and university campuses across the country, "The Chalkening," has done a great deal to expose the extreme sensitivity that pervades American higher education. “Triggered” by such troubling communiques as “Trump 2016” and “Build The Wall,” students have reported the chalkings to police, Student Governments have offered counseling to the “victims,” and administrators have taken steps ranging from condemning the messages to banning political chalking entirely.
"The Chalkening". BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Lovin' it...

I've noted before, I don't know if Trump would make a good president or not. But I'm lovin' the hell out of the reactions the possibility thereof is netting from both sides of the camp.

Trump 2016!

Hey, how's that shining bastion of Progressivism, Venezuela, doing?

Socialism Works: Venezuela Can't Call Long Distance Anymore

Quote:
First there was no toilet paper in stores. Then no milk. Then no money to buy anything with because the Socialist regime couldn't afford to print its own currency. Which inflation had sent shooting up wildly.

Now it's even being cut off from long distance phone service.
He sums:

But I'm sure all this will work much better when Bernie Sanders does it.
Yep.

Green Party BANS ‘Women’, Calls Them ‘Non-Men’ After Transgender Pressure

Quote:
If you are a member of those political party groups and happen to have two X chromosomes, you will henceforth be know as a ‘non-male’, Green Party Women and Young Greens have announced.

Female members first learnt of their new status when Young Greens tweeted last month: “…non-men who are Young Greens can find and join our Facebook group ‘Young Greens Women’”.

The idea was that it would be more “inclusive” to the confused, the transgendered and ‘non-binary’ people to stop referring to women all together. ‘Non-binary’, for the uninitiated, is a politically correct term for someone who does not consider themselves a man or a woman.

However, many predominant feminists were annoyed. They argued that it was absurd to “erase” women from a women’s movement just because biological men who consider themselves women (or somewhere in between) might get offended.
I jes' luvs it when they shoot themselves in the foot like this. The more rules they enact, the more conditions imposed, the more it becomes mired in bureaucracy. Fabulous...

So, you want less police presence, less stops, less enforcement. Fine...

Back to Bedlam

Quote:
Will the anti-cop Left please figure out what it wants? For more than a decade, activists have demanded the end of proactive policing, claiming that it was racist. Pedestrian stops—otherwise known as stop, question, and frisk—were attacked as a bigoted oppression of minority communities. In March 2015, for example, the ACLU of Illinois accused the Chicago Police Department of “targeting” minorities because stops are “disproportionately concentrated in the black community.”

Equally vilified was Broken Windows policing, which responds to low-level offenses such as graffiti, disorderly conduct, and turnstile jumping. Black Lives Matter activist Shaun King launched a petition after the 2014 shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, demanding that Attorney General Eric Holder “meet with local black and brown youth across the country who are dealing with ‘Zero Tolerance’ and ‘Broken Windows’ policing.”
More:

Quote:
Well, the police got the message. In response to the incessant accusations of racism and the heightened hostility in the streets that has followed the Michael Brown shooting, officers have pulled back from making investigatory stops and enforcing low-level offenses in many urban areas. As a result, violent crime in cities with large black populations has shot up—homicides in the largest 50 cities rose nearly 17 percent in 2015. And the Left is once again denouncing the police—this time for not doing enough policing. King now accuses police in Chicago of not “doing their job,” as a result of which “people are dying.”
M'bold.

Islam: Not conforming to liberal expectations

Quote:
No matter what the question, the liberal response is the same: native Europeans need to understand, ‘celebrate’ difference, and be willing to integrate alien ideologies – because it’s so enriching. But if it is all so enriching, liberals struggle to explain to themselves and others why Islamic communities are not ‘celebrating’ their own differences.
Further:

Quote:
Central to the liberal narrative is the thesis that if you are understanding enough, tolerant enough, embracing enough and do enough ‘celebrating’ of everyone’s differences, eventually people will all come round to being like liberals: gushy, blindly optimistic utopians with a misguided though perhaps well-intentioned set of motives.

This is – at best – a strategy for failure; at worst a cynical ploy providing cover to well-meaning fools to execute a policy of betrayal against their own civilization. To put it in Classical terms, liberals are not only throwing open the gates of Troy; they themselves built the horse and are wheeling it in.
M'bold.

One of the many reasons Why this thread...

British school asks parents to help four year olds “pick their gender”

Quote:
In England, the city of Brighton and Hove is making history in terms of political correctness. Parents of children preparing to enter the school system received a letter informing them that they needed to be cautious when filling out their child’s registration forms and not rush into anything complicated like identifying whether they were boys or girls. You see, that’s a really complicated question these days and you need to help your children “pick” which gender they want to be. And no… I’m not even kidding.
M'bold.

Gobsmacked...

Hey, let's talk $15/hr wages some more!

The Coming Minimum Wage Catastrophe

Quote:
The Left’s destructive push for a $15 an hour minimum wage threatens to make the American fast-food worker extinct while driving up the price of burgers and other dietary staples relied on by low-income consumers.

It’s actually a highly effective job-creation program – for those who manufacture robots and the touch-screen point-of-sale terminals that replace the comparatively expensive human help. White Castle, Carl’s Jr., Hardee’s, McDonald’s and plenty of other fast-food chains are already considering or making the move to get rid of their frontline employees.

The current feel-good push for a $15 an hour minimum wage has nothing to do with helping workers and everything to do with advancing the goals of the left wing, especially the labor movement. It's a vote-buying scam that moves money around on an Alinskyite chess board. The minimum wage has become a "motherhood" issue for the Left in recent years. It gets fuzzy-thinking bleeding-heart voters to the polls the way that opposition to same-sex marriage used to get conservative voters to the polls.
M'bold.

No argument...
