Noted Moron Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has the sads that Socialism killed her former place of employment

There is dumb, then there is nuclear grade STOOPIT!

New York Democratic congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez bemoaned on Monday the closing of a restaurant where she was previously employed, however, the restaurant cited an Ocasio-Cortez-endorsed policy for its closure.

Ocasio-Cortez visited The Coffee Shop in New York’s Union Square to say goodbye to her old stomping ground before the iconic eatery shuts its doors for good.

The restaurant announced in July that it was closing, and cited the increased minimum wage as one of the attributing factors.

“The times have changed in our industry. The rents are very high and now the minimum wage is going up and we have a huge number of employees” one of The Coffee Shop’s co-founders, Charles Milite, told The New York Post.

Ocasio-Cortez has campaigned on more than doubling the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour, in addition to full healthcare and child and sick leave for all, a policy that can stifle economic growth and lead to massive layoffs.

“Ocasio-Cortez’s desired ‘living wage’ of $15 an hour has been a living hell for many small business owners in New York, who’ve been unable to offset the cost through higher prices,” Employment Policies Institute Managing Director Michael Saltsman told The Washington Free Beacon. “It’s fine to mourn the impending closure of your former employer — it’s better to understand the misguided minimum-wage mandates that contributed to that closure.”

Reality?  Naw, Ocasio-Cortez wants nothing to do with reality. She wants Socialism to work dammit! No matter how much damage to real people it does, no matter how many businesses it shutters!

Just a note I am blogging while injured today

It seems I am very brave, and have a high threshold for pain, and by pain, I mean painful pain, that is, well, painfully painful. See I have a strained uterus. Now, wait, before you get all high and mighty and sciency on me and say I do not have a uterus because I am a man, let me assure you that Planned Parenthood says I do

See! You haters!

The government can fix everything right?

The idiocy of over regulation

At this point, the whole country is about one senseless regulation away from ending up like fired Pasadena bus driver Margarito Ayala.

Ayala liked to adjust the bus mirrors before driving, so as not to bash into other vehicles or run over pedestrians…

Then suddenly he was told to stop. Only a mechanic can touch the mirrors.

So Ayala called maintenance to adjust the mirrors for him, resulting in a letter chastising him for creating a “work stoppage.”

They warned him once and after the second time he called up maintenance to adjust his mirrors, he was fired…

EGADS! I have driven large delivery trucks when I was younger, and the mirrors allow you to see and are essential to safety. And no one is better suited to adjust those mirrors than the person driving the bus/truck. But, I realize that I am using common sense here so……………
