Yet they struggle with basic math skills? Zendo Deb revels in mocking their hypocrisy
Why Can’t Liberals Do Arithmetic?
First there was the unforgettable math-is-hard moment when Brian Williams of MSNBC and Mara Gay of the New York Times proved they can’t do math. The link to that post is below. Mara Gay immediately, or maybe the next day, started to complain that anyone who questions her ability to do math is because they are racist. While I’m sure she’s dealt with racist idiots since that day, my only complaint is that neither Gay nor Williams can do 3rd or 4th grade math, and yet are ready to lecture us on the ins and outs of finance, campaign finance, tax policy, epidemiology, and a host of other topics that involve a lot more math than dividing 500 by 329. And now we have round two.
Briahna Joy Gray, press secretary for Bernie Sanders’ 2020 campaign, said that 500 million people in the US go bankrupt every year from medical expenses. That’s a neat trick, because there are only 329 million people in the country (according to Wiki), and fewer than 1 million go bankrupt in any year for any reason.
Of course, the truth is truly meaningless to the left so, they really are not concerned with missing honesty as often as they do. They also know the media will not call them out on such statements because they are too busy blaming Trump for anything they can.
Who could have seen this coming?
Seriously, did anyone see this coming?
(The Blaze) Target announced two years ago that it would raise the companywide minimum wage to $15 per hour by the end of 2020, winning plaudits from progressives and advocates for an increased minimum wage.
Now, with just one year before Target is scheduled to hit the magic $15 mark ($13 is the current minimum wage), it turns out that raising the minimum wage has impacted many Target employees in the exact way that opponents of mandatory minimum wage increases predict.
CNN Business spoke to numerous current and former Target employees who revealed their hours at the retail giant have been cut since Target announced its push to increase the store’s minimum wage, which for many employees means they lose their health insurance benefits. Target offers health benefits to employees who work more than 30 hours per week.
One employee, Heather, told CNN that when her hourly pay rate increased, management cut her total work hours.
“I got that dollar raise but I’m getting $200 less in my paycheck,” she said. “I have no idea how I’m going to pay rent or buy food.”
Other employees, Caren and Michael, told CNN their hours were cut substantially. Caren said she lost her health insurance — forcing her to quit her job — while Michael has had to pick up a side job just to make ends meet.
William Teach, the noted pirate I spoke of speaks TRUTH to POWER!
There are two choices when raising wages in a situation like this: cut hours or increase prices. Start raising prices and people go elsewhere.
It is called reality!
Well now, cutting back numerous regulations that punish success and hinder growth seems to be a good thing after all! Via Biz Pac
Thanks to President Trump, not only has the US Stock Market set multiple all time high records, the US GDP just soared past $19 trillion for the first time – ever.
The second quarter US Gross Domestic Product annual growth rate released on Friday showed two times the rate from the first quarter under Trump according to the US Bureau of Economic Analysis.
Not sure if CNN or MSNBS has covered this yet. They are likely too busy covering the Trump Eats Russian Dressing story
Second quarter US GDP grew to $19.2 trillion, up from $19.1 trillion at the end of the first quarter. That surpassed the end of 2016 which saw the GDP at $18.9 trillion, according to the BEA. in just two quarters under Trump, the US GDP has grown by more than $300 Billion.
The magic of free enterprise
Such basic common sense, and wisdom. Yet the Left rejects these truths, which is why the Left destroys everything it touches
