I think the robots are coming irrespective of wages. Fewer employees equals higher profits. Prosperous companies that aren't even struggling to meet payroll are gradually replacing employees with an electronic workforce. Companies like the banks, Home Depot, Costco, gas stations etc. are replacing staff with electronic self serve options wherever they can. When a robot can make a pizza or cook a hamburger, there will be a single guy handing out product and a few people to service the production equipment. Surely a higher minimum wage will accelerate the transition to automated employees but I think its coming anyway.

University of Toronto Dumps Transgender Bathrooms After Peeping Incidents



My $0.02?

OK, so you are transgendered, or you consider yourself transgendered or amenable to the concept of transgender washrooms or whatever. In that instance, you should have the choice to attend the third selection, the Transgender washroom. Those of us who are not comfortable changing, showering or going to the washroom in front of little girls or little boys can use the Women's or Men's washrooms.

Jes' sayin'...
On the bright side, maybe Toronto will be spared any concerts by Springsteen and Brian Adams as a result.

It's a financial equation of robot affordability. If you get union-minded people at a high minimum wage, it's a slam dunk.

Photo of MLK statue with ‘Make America Great Again’ hat sends college cupcakes into DEFCON 1

Quote:
A photograph of a statue of Martin Luther King Jr. wearing a Donald Trump hat is sweeping the Internet.

The photograph was taken on the University of South Florida campus.

Anti-Trumpsters went wild slamming the photo as “disrespectful,” “disgraceful” and “disgusting.”
Laughing my backside off...

The Death Of Masculinity: Male Millennial Swears He Gets His Period Every Month

Quote:
The “men” of the millennial generation have tried with all their might to kill off what’s left of masculinity, bringing us man buns, male feminists, gender neutral clothing and a slew of men made in the image of Pajama Boy. But it looks like one 22-year-old university student, George Fellowes, finally put the last nail in the manhood coffin: Fellowes swears he gets his period each month.

According to the BBC, Fellowes claims that he has been getting his period “without bleeding” for three years now. “He says he's so close to his best friend and flatmate Amber-May Ellis that he gets cramps when she comes on each month.” This pathetic excuse of a man says he has even taken sick days because of his “period.” That he doesn’t have.
I got nuttin'...

Further on that shiny bastion of Progressivism, Venezuela...

Venezuela energy crisis: President tells women to stop using hairdryers and go with 'natural' style to save electricity

Quote:
The President of Venezuela has urged women to stop using hairdryers and offered alternative styling tips as the country’s energy crisis continues.

...

Recommending that women reduce hairdryer use to “special occasions”, Mr Maduro added: “I always think a woman looks better when she just runs her fingers through her hair and lets it dry naturally. It's just an idea I have."
What would Justin do?

BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Progressives visit the farm.

Farmer Says He’s Getting Harassed, Threatened by Protesters Who Want to Save Cow He Raised to Feed His Family: ‘They’re Trying to Tell Us How to Live’

Quote:
It all started about two weeks ago when Jean Benner took a birthday party group on a tour of the farm and a mother, Kimberly Sherriton of Commack, offered to help place Minnie in an animal sanctuary instead of becoming meat for the Benners, TBR News Media reported.

“Why would I send her to live in sanctuary someplace with no reason for being?” Jean Benner asked WCBS-TV. “Her reason for being is to be a meat animal. That’s what she was born to be.”

“Jean tried to explain the difference between an animal on a farm and a pet, explaining that our farm was a homestead where we raise animals for meat, as it has been since 1751,” Bob Benner told TBR.

That apparently wasn’t sufficient for Sherriton, who spoke with Bob Benner the next day with the pair not coming to a resolution. And since that point, the Benners have been “inundated and harassed with phone calls, Facebook posts, bad reviews and threats all aiming to change our mind,” Bob Benner told TBR.
Progressive heads worldwide are going to explode when they find out there are ranchers raising thousands of head of cattle for slaughter, let alone one...

Progressives on campus rape.

Campus rape culture: another chapter in the book of leftist lies

Quote:
Are America’s college campuses rape culture incubators? Are they scary, dangerous places for young women?

If you listen to feminists and politicians, you’d believe the answer to be yes. The rape culture rhetoric continues to spread like wildfire on America’s college campuses. This overheated rhetoric has led to various campus initiatives and state-mandated affirmative consent laws.
More:

Quote:
But is “rape culture” a legitimate thing? The answer, if you care about actual statistics, is no. The infamous “1-in-5” lie is just that–a misguided, inaccurate figure that leftist, feminists, and politicians use to push their progressive agendas and institute more government programs to tackle this rape culture “nightmare.”

With simple investigation into the 2007 study that so many reference when pushing their rape culture agenda, one will find the “facts” that progressives love to reference, are based on obscure findings from an obscure survey.

As Prager University outlines in its new video, the figures often used to push the rape culture narrative derive from the Campus Sexual Assault (CSA) Study. That’s right, the entire rape culture agenda is based on a single, anonymous, unverified, internet-based survey performed at just two college campuses more than eight years ago.

Woohoo! Somebody who knows how to deal with Special Snowflakes.

Finally—A College President Finds a Backbone

Quote:
Here’s a 5-minute video of the announcement by university vice president Jay Kasey that the occupiers need to leave the building or be arrested and expelled. The whining responses of the student protestors strongly suggest that they should be expelled for being imbeciles and embarrassing the serious students at Ohio State. But maybe they can be put on probation and required to shine a bronze of Woody Hayes.
M'bold.

Yep.

Memo to all college presidents: This is how you do it. Why is this so hard?
Good question...
