A $15.00 minimum wage is the greedy taking advantage of the unskilled with the help of the Democrats

By Kevin “Coach” Collins

Raising the wages of low to unskilled workers to $15.00 an hour will only help the Democrats and the extortionist unions who “represent” these workers. If low level salaries are doubled to $15.00 an hour, causing half of a shop’s workforce to be fired, the unions are way ahead. They will just double the dues for the remaining workers and not lose a cent in income. Better still, when employers fire half their workers just to survive, there will be half the number of members to bother union thugs with demands for services. The unions will still be able to grease the Democrats.

Anticipating this huge increase in labor costs, some employers are beginning to replace pricey employees with machines. This will enhance their bottom line and make no mistake, the unions will be very pleased. Unions are run for the benefit of union officials and Democrats not their membership. Given that all three benefit at the expense of the low skilled workers, the drive for a $15.00 an hour minimum wage may be pushed by a coalition of unions, employers and Democrats. It will be workers be damned. Their only job, as always, is paying union extortion and voting Democrat.

The only danger for unions is if employers should fire every worker and go fully automated.

A handy example of this is the way drinks are sold at the United Center in Chicago where the Bulls play. The arena has gone “service employee free.” Alcoholic drinks are sold from vending machines called a “DraftServ.” Bartenders are a thing of the past in Democrat/union run Chicago’s basketball arena. Drinks are uniform and no tipping is required or even possible. This means more sales and more profits.

On the fast food front, McDonald’s has responded to the “Fight for Fifteen” with its own move toward automation. The restaurant chain has seen its revenues fall at an alarming pace and asking it to pay more to workers who are already not worth what they are making now is a losing proposition. McDonald’s answer is sharply reducing its staff and labor costs by having machines take burger orders.

It is all clearly a matter of the greedy taking advantage of the unskilled with the help of the Democrats.

I Am a Conservative, not a Republican

By John Velisek USN (Ret), staff writer

Has anyone figured out what the 2014 election results really meant? I was under the impression that Americans had grown ever more disheartened with what our nation has become. Turnout at the polls made it seem that voters wanted to rebuild the nation given us by the Founders. Historic gains were made by Republican candidates, promises were made and the excessive actions of the Democrat Party would be blunted as the citizenry exclaimed “No More!”

I have been a proud card carrying Republican since I first voted. Based on what I learned in school, their platform made sense. I have traveled to many parts of this world while in the military and can honestly say that I have found nothing, NOTHING, better than what we have here. In fact, no one can begin to equal 250 years of American accomplishment. We were promised that when Republicans took both Houses of Congress, things would change; that we might be able to get some things done and see sunlight at the end of a long dark period of subjugation to a Marxist president and power hungry congressional leadership.

Obama, our narcissist in chief proclaimed for all to hear that he would take action on illegal immigration, without Congress. In my opinion, his would be a totally unconstitutional action, creating chaos in this country and slamming the Black middle class the hardest. Sen. Mitch McConnell, the next majority leader, and John Boehner both made waves, vowing to fight Obama to the end on this subject. McConnell promised voters:

“When the newly elected representatives take their seats, they will act.”

Naturally, Republicans were divided. Congress pursued the “CRomnibus” keeping the Department of Homeland Security funded until Feb 29 and the rest of government rest fully funded. But not all Republicans agreed, some wanting to shut government down at that time for the fight while others favored a short term funding bill, keeping the government open until 2015. The temporary approval was derided by many, including many conservative groups, given that any funding at all would get the program up and running. Once started they never end. You can’t put the toothpaste back in the tube. And like other programs, it would be further expanded and grow to “unexpected” levels.

Once again, the Republicans caved. Once again, the corporate Congress did the bidding of the major corporations and lobbying groups that allow them to function. Once again the American people have been ignored while both parties fatten on the deals they make. When was the last time any elected official left public service with less money than he had when he was first elected? How many deals are we going to allow people like Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid to make before the spigot is finally shut off?

What I find most disappointing is the fact that both sides are the same. We are governed not by Republicans and Democrats, but by the Uniparty.

Right now, it appears to this veteran that Obama can continue do whatever he wants. Republicans have wasted what leverage they might have had. A number of Party elders blame it on not being able to get the Republican message to the American people. The message I see from Republicans is that we are going to get more of the same.

Corporations, including the National Chamber of Commerce, got the amnesty they wanted. Today, Obama expanded it even more. Americans looking for jobs, living from payday to payday get screwed again and Republicans have shown themselves as Democrat-lite, providing no reason for any citizen to look to them for leadership. Why would any God fearing, hard-working American vote for ANY Republican?

So we’ll wait and see in this next election who is a “Republican” and who is a true conservative. I will vote for the conservative. If I can find one.

In the ghetto the endless summer never ends

By Kevin “Coach” Collins

When the Beach Boys sang about an “Endless Summer,” their endless summer was one that revolved around surfing, drinking beer and making out with honey blond virgins in hopes of getting to third base. Nevertheless, when the days got shorter the Beach Boys’ endless summers ended and it was back to school to prepare for real life.

The endless summers in the Ghetto never end where real life is one long “class cut.” There is no school; no rules and no responsibilities.

Black ghetto life is run by children who are on perpetual summer vacation. They have no cares no worries, stay out to all hours drink, use drugs, engage in random sex. They live inside real life games of Mortal Kombat and what was once known as Cops and Robbers when it was innocently played by White kids.

The summer never ends for these Black children. They either end up in prison where they continue a modified game of endless summer, or they end up killed by another endless summer child or a cop. If these things don’t get them, it finally ends at the ripe old age of 25 for the females – now with 4 children by four different endless summer boys – or 30 for the endless summer boys who are still alive and not in prison. The males who make it to 30 “graduate” to being hardcore professional criminals.

The Black ghetto, endless summer males rap and use gutter language to scream out their hatred for the women in their lives who can never be their fathers. Like human peacocks begging for attention, they wear the most bizarre clothing possible. They are never ever criticized by anyone. When cold weather comes they wander into school to get their free breakfast and stay warm until midday when they can begin roaming the streets again.

Because they have no real families they create families with other endless summer children. In these families their suppressed and unspoken dreams of having a father are fulfilled by a gang leader who himself had no father and has no concept of how to be one.

Like other third world savages around the world they use violence and procreation to prove their “manhood” and claim to leadership.

Female endless summer children are occasionally overcome by maternal instincts and become the docile baby factories they have always been fated to be.

Both male and female endless summer children are eager to latch onto the ideas they are fed by liberals who tell them their problems are not their fault; but are caused by White conservative Republicans who insist they follow “White” ways of living. This works perfectly because of the natural willingness to blame those who are nameless and faceless as opposed to those who hand out the welfare cheese every two weeks.

Being uneducated, they rely on what they are told by liberals and those who do vote are cunning enough to make the connection between continuing to live their care free life and voting Democrat.

With everything else handed to them, they demand an entertainment. Like others who legitimately live lives with no responsibility, boredom takes over. Bored Whitey doesn’t riot, he uses drugs; but the Ghetto endless summer children riot for entertainment. Sadly, right on cue in Baltimore they were told they have a right to riot to protest the real life “cops and robbers” death of one of their own.

At this writing Baltimore’s endless summer continues.

Taking Our Country Back, Part 4

By John Velisek USN (Ret), staff writer

In this final part of Taking Our Country Back, I ask what we can do to change the direction in which our country is headed. There are steps that can be taken involving both the individual and our culture. But nothing will change unless the American people understand that ignoring problems or pretending they will be resolved somehow at some point in the future are not options at this point. Low information voters must be made to get involved by understanding the dire consequences of remaining on the present path; that the ongoing, seemingly endless gravy train will soon end.

We will not survive as a nation if we agree to simply “slow the rate” of government growth. Government growth never slows and never ends. We need to force our federal government to live within a budget, rein in the welfare state by ending it and close government bureaucracies which have become political slush funds and obvious Party cheerleaders. In this Republicans are just as guilty as Democrats, with the Senate and House both caving on any changes needed to repair the system. Welfare to Work for some odd reason is considered racist, the word bandied about whenever liberals are concerned their bought and paid for voting blocs are being threatened. Welfare has become generational vote buying that keeps families from moving ahead. It must be ended.

Slavery was a part of our national heritage which has been ended and condemned by all. But Barack Obama is now using the 160 year old history of slavery for the purpose of seeking reparations, that is, entitlements for millions who do not deserve them. My family came from the Czech Republic, a potato farmer who made his way here legally and worked his way into a middle class way of life. He didn’t take from others or keep anyone down to raise his family. He just worked hard.

Reparations will further divide this country and Barack Obama and the rest of the radical left know it. Americans are happy to help those who need it. But we must NOT provide billions to the undeserving in an attempt to appease White guilt that should not be felt in the first place. By the way, I assume taxpayers will be reimbursed the $16-20 trillion in Great Society welfare payments–our own reparations– before reparations for the previous institution of slavery are seriously discussed.

Government is too big. Does anyone really know how many government agencies exist, how many work there, what they do, or how much money they spend? Our government has turned into a clown show, making regulations by the thousands and infringing on our freedoms. We are literally being ruled by an unelected subculture which believes it knows best how Americans should lead their lives.

It is the citizen’s responsibility to be informed. If we have no knowledge of our founding principles, we have no understanding what our government should be and more importantly, what it should NOT be. As a result, politicians believe themselves entitled to rule rather than govern.

Ours is an exceptional country, no matter what Obama and leftist academics say. The indoctrination of our children in the greatness of the liberal agenda, starting in grade school and continuing through college, has to stop. Multiculturalism is all but worshipped by the far left. The notion that all cultures must be treated as equals; that criticism is the equivalent of racism or bigotry; this is the sort of dangerous nonsense which can lead to the death of those forced to accept it. Can anyone but a lunatic actually believe that Iran’s practice of beheading gays or the Saudi practice of treating women like chattel should be considered acceptable cultural nuances?

Responsibility must be the cornerstone of our country. Diversity can be celebrated, but not in and of itself. There are universal truths which must be accepted in all successful societies and by all worthy cultures. Already contemptuous of the United States, leftists embrace multiculturalism and diversity only as methods of destroying the society and culture they detest. We must stop them or be enslaved by them. This “choice” may be forced upon the American people sooner than we think.

Taking Back America, Part 3

By John Velisek USN (Ret), staff writer

Pundits tell us that the Republican Party will never win the black vote. Is there a reason for that? Is it perhaps because conservatives put an emphasis on personal responsibility and the rights of the individual? But does a black man care less about his child’s education than a white man? Does a black man working two jobs to put his child through college care any less about the cost of insurance, or if he has to worry about a politically correct response to the burning question of what he wants out of life?

I am a retired military veteran and have worked with a great many people. And I have in my own world found something that would startle a great many people. Among blacks, whites, Asians, Latinos and all others (I would assume the numbers are basically the same) 85% are good people just trying to get through life, doing the best they can. Ten percent will do just enough to get by and 5% are just losers no matter what you do for them. So how did we get where we are?

Over the past several decades, America has been divided. Progressives have deliberately pushed Americans apart as they pander to women, blacks and Hispanics. These individual groups have formed the base of the Democrat Party for many years, not realizing that being a part of the progressive movement has not changed their lifestyle. What has happened to black employment under this Administration? Who has predicted the lowest of expectations for these groups?

Calls for more government intervention are only guaranteed to make matters worse. The War on Poverty has been ongoing since LBJ; more than 50 years. A total of $16 Trillion in transfer payments have been made from those who work to those who do not.  And what has changed? The numbers still in poverty have not changed, unless it has been to increase.

But the attitude of waiting with your hand out—that has certainly changed. Those numbers have grown exponentially every year. And it is music to the ears of Democrats throughout the nation. For they realize that people dependent upon Big Brother are likely to stay that way, generation after generation. The Democrat Party has seen to it. After all, millions of votes are theirs for the asking; that is, for the buying. And only a massive redirection of incentives away from those who expect everyone else to take care of them can possibly dismantle the poisonous system with which the left have deliberately destroyed a race and they hope, eventually a nation.

It is up to us, all of us, to make a change, to make a difference. We can inform others of the cruel future guaranteed them by the Democrat Party, but we must not help Democrats provide it for them. Welfare for the able bodied must end. Those who decide to riot will burn down their own neighborhoods and towns. Let them pay for these crimes and do the rebuilding. We can’t waste any more time or money trying to help those who refuse to help themselves. Nor will we continue being intimidated into providing a free living. They have the choice between work, poverty and prison. Let them make it.

The progressive agenda is anathema to liberty. It survives only by means of theft, threat and force. The left must discredit the family, Christianity, our constitutional republic and way of life by telling the so-called “have-nots” that the rich have taken what is rightfully theirs. This is class warfare as practiced by the true experts.

The family is the backbone of this country. It is where everything starts, whether good or bad. Parents need to teach their children, children need to respect others. We need to have the respect and care necessary to tell our fellow man: “You are going down the wrong path, let me help.” Hollywood’s limousine liberals, D.C. progressives, academics and celebrity wanna-be’s will not provide help to anyone. They spout platitudes and move on. They have engaged in their feel-good service of the day. Have they changed you personally? Their goal is to prove to themselves and their fellow, brain-dead libs how compassionate they are.

The agenda of the far left and the effect of its minions on the United States and its citizens have always been the same—lie in order to destroy the culture and society; lie in order to put progressives in positions of power; attack anyone who disagrees or tells the truth.

The choice belongs to us. Will we work to sustain our nation and liberty, or destroy the one chance we have to move forward?

How very important Election 2016 can be.
