Time For a Raise!

What's stopping our nation's business class pigs who rule over the rest of us? It's time for a raise! Demand a Higher Minimum Raise Now

Raise the minimum wage now!

Why vote for a bum like Barack Obama? You think that he is better for you than the other bum we are offered? If so, then why has he not ever been heard to support raising the minimum wage above a measly $7.25 per hour? 34039

To the so called “Conservatives”: Merry God-Damn Free Market!

You know how the Adam Smith/Reagan/Ayn Rand brainwashed disciples preach that "A rising tide lifts all boats". What they don't mention is the Rich have it rigged so their Wage Slaves can't afford a God-Damn boat. They'll also get some Really Stupid Morons like the TeaBags and any other non-wealthy person Retarded enough to do their bidding, tell the rest of the working class that there actually IS opportunity if only we save enough money from our slave-wage jobs to invest, we'll get a whole $50 a week from our 401k if we work ourselves to death putting millions of times that much in the pockets of the Rich Bitches. All y'all who say otherwise, boy Howdy! The professional liars who work for the Filthy Rich Pigs sure got YOU! Problem is you bastards are too God-Damn DUMB to know it. You'll even voluntarily go to other countries and kill other working class people so your Rich Masters can rob them the same way they rob YOUR dumb asses. They'll even tell you you're fighting for "freedom" and that you're giving the people you're slaughtering an "opportunity" and "civilization" Yeah, you're giving them the opportunity and freedom to be good little Civilized

Happy 18th Re-Birthday, to me…

It was 18 years ago last Friday that I woke up as a healthy, badly underpaid and moderately radicalized minimum wage Construction Laborer and 5 minutes before quiting and pay time (they didn't pay me either) was reborn as a badly disabled, even worse paid and definitely Radicalized Ex-Construction worker. The De-Regulated Fully Privatized, Right To Work but No Right To Health Care Corporate Regime that I'm supposed to not even TRY to vote against next week, "Defeat is Inevitable, Resistance is Futile, You will be assimilated" attitude has cost me the use of my feet. In case any of the Tea-bag or Republican Mainstream or other Right Wing Extremist groups wonder why anybody would vote against their "Freedom to Conform and Obey" platform, that's not a complete answer but it's a Really Damned Good Start. Had there been fully socialized health care in America for the past 18 years my right foot would not have died and it would have saved almost a quarter of a million dollars in my case alone. Shove that up your Fiscal "conservative" ummm... left nostril, o ye Stupid Ones, and then line up and take turns kissing my ..errr... right foot. The one

Capital in Action, minimum wage.

Just heard a commercial for a "rent to own" place. One where the payments on a laptop computer totaled two and a half grand for a 450 dollar machine. A 700 dollar (at the high end price) refrigerator, 159 bux a month for two years, 3816 dollars. That's a 400% markup. So, what's the Big Deal about Minimum Wage? Why shouldn't those of us who rent out our labor have to do it not at a profit, not even at a "break-even" rate, but below the actual cost for us to produce our labor? If I were to walk into the Rent-to-own place and demand to only pay $700 for the $700 refrigerator, would I be legitimately allowed to walk out the door, (with a rented dolly and rented pickup of course) with the refrigerator? How about if I only offered $500? Surely he could survive on $20 a month for 2 years. No? What if I got some Publicly Paid Goons to force him to negotiate on my terms, the way Capital always does when they're confronted with the silly-ass demands of Labor that the Workers actually be paid an adequate wage? See, every time this question gets put to the Capitalists, they come

You can’t even trust Goobers anymore

By "goobers" I mean Goober Peas. That staple of American Diet in more ways than you can possibly imagine unless you're allergic to them, Once Again being recalled due to bacteria that exist naturally in the digestive tracts of Carnivores. In this case, like the LAST recall, which was only last year, about this time, it's Salmonella. 15039

$6.55 an hour? Oh, whoopee…

Notice how all the big guys look out after themselves. They got themselves a 'bailout' of several tens of billions of dollars over at Fannie Mae's and Freddie's houses, and it will be paid to them from much of the work of all those who, today, will get a big boost up to $6.55 an hour! More than that would be socialism they say. Federal Minimum Wage to Increase to $6.55 on July 24 3823
