Another Lexiconical Shift

Posted in Politics, Society, The Environment on August 25th, 2013

Since the death cult’s birth the Warmists have struggled with naming the climatic system that forms the core of their faith. Time and time again both the facts in evidence and the public’s skepticism has forced them into lexiconical shifts:

Global Warming Is a Hoax - They will do for the sake of AGW what they would refuse to do in the name of Socialism

  1. Global Warming
  2. Climate Change
  3. Climate Chaos
  4. Climate Disruption
  5. Climate Uncertainty
  6. Carbon Pollution

Truth be told, it’s been rather amusing to-date to watch and listen to the Warmists scrambling and scrabbling about, trying to re-brand dogma every year or so in an attempt to wrench it into some semblance of a shape that matches reality while still providing an excuse for their attacks upon Western Civilization and the basic liberties of its citizenry.

The free peoples of the world will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of Global Warming they will adopt every fragment of the socialist platform, or so the Warmists hope.

The most recent change, however, is not humorous in the least. The problem is that the latest re-branding, “Carbon Pollution” came from Obama’s  campaign machine, Organizing for Action. They declared the new name Tuesday, August 13, 2013. Given the proclivities and pathology of the Thug-in-Chief, there’s little doubt that this re-branding of Global Warming is a precursor to the Obama Regime use of the various regulatory agencies under its control to enact the Warmists’ agenda without the factual color of law or bothering with garnering the legal authority to do so.

If CO2 is now Carbon Pollution, then one of the greatest polluters is Obama. He’s spewing out great gusts of it with his constant campaigning and jabbering rantings.

By the Warmists’ own accounting the boy’s “sustainability” should be brought into question. 😉

This recent change in naming, coming as it does from the Obama Regime’s proxies and foot soldiers, should concern each and every American. With the collapse of the Warmists’ cult’s public acceptance, they’re desperate and desperate people are often willing to go to extreme measures to stave off utter failure and total collapse. This is made worse by their alliance with the Obama Regime, who has never shown much respect for America’s law or its People.

Normalizing Crime

Posted in Politics on August 24th, 2013

There are two common methods employed by criminals and those who pander to criminals to excuse their criminal behavior. These are respectively claiming that no crime was actually committed and blaming others for their criminality.

Obama is quite skilled at blending these two excuses into a single narrative. The boy is amazingly competent at this, if at nothing else that humans would consider of worth.

I will seize any opportunity I can find to work with Congress to strengthen the middle class, improve their prospects, improve their security, but where Congress is unwilling to act, I will take whatever administrative steps that I can in order to do right by the American people.

The Narcissist-in-Chief sound so reasonable and even noble as he shucks and jives his way around the simple fact that a great deal of the time, “I will take whatever administrative steps that I can…” is just a dog-whistle for his usurping authority that he as POTUS doesn’t have. He cannot levy taxes, no matter how he renames them and he cannot fail to enforce and fully execute the laws that Congress enacts. Yet those are the “administrative steps” that the boy consistently resorts to whenever Congress fails to do as he wishes.

This is just an attempt on Obama’s part to normalize and legitimize his rampant criminality. Frankly, it’s no surprise that Obama identified with Trayvon Martin; it’s just sad that he never, as of yet, met his Zimmerman.

The Maximum Wage

Posted in Politics on August 23rd, 2013

What Are You Worth?There are those, including Obama, who continually clamor for the Minimum Wage to be significantly increased. Indeed, calls for such an increase are currently part of Obama’s repertoire of his ever-ongoing campaign speeches. In truth, a majority of the masses – including 60% of the GOP, who should know better – want the federally mandated minimum wage to be increased significantly.

Self-interest, sympathy, and a national pathology of equating work with worth have conspired to make people believe that increasing the minimum wage is a good and proper thing. The Biblical admonition (1 Timothy 5:18) that worker is worth his wage still resonates strongly in American society.

The greatest and most societally damaging piece of this is the thought that the worker is worth anything at all in this context. The worker isn’t worth anything; nor is the worth of that worker properly measured by his or her wage. The work, and only the work, has worth that can be measured by a wage or price. Hence, it is the work that the worker performs that is worth the wage that he or receives for it.

This is the problem with attempting to raise the Minimum Wage. Doing so ignores the simple economic fact that the work often isn’t worth more than what that wage is now and, in some cases, isn’t really worth even that. These jobs are already paying the Maximum Wage that can be afforded for the work being done.

Most minimum wage jobs are either in industries with low profit margins or in fields where the work being performed by the menial, low-wage workers is, or was, of the nature of a customer perk or bonus. Most of the latter were service-oriented and have already been reduced or deprecated in favor of customer self-service options, e.g., trollies replacing skycaps and disposable flatware and such replacing dishwashers. Raising the labor costs in the low profit margin industries such as the fast food industry will, one way or another, put people relying upon these jobs out of work.

It will also effectively cull many younger and minority workers from those jobs because they’re less productive than other workers. As profit margins drop lower the employers will be forced to apply higher standards for such employment, standards that haven’t been necessary to-date.

These are just some of the negative impacts of trying to force employers to pay more than the maximum effective wage for a job.
