Anyone seeing the few newscasts or many YouTube videos of the “demonstrations” in D.C. over the past weekend has to feel bad for the tolerant left. They are so out of touch with reality, so uncaring and abusive that they don’t care what or whom they destroy.

In particular there is one video of men in black destroying the windows of a Starbucks. One CNN video showed customers inside, ducking behind tables and fearing for their lives not knowing what might happen next. That makes the demonstration a terrorist act in almost anybody’s book.

The thing I find particularly funny is that Starbucks President and CEO, Kevin Johnson and Chairman of the Board, Howard Schultz are a couple of the most democracy defiant progressive liberals and Trump haters on the planet. Starbucks is, and has been, the socialist icon and hangout of the past three decades.

These idiots were simply destroying property and they didn’t care if it was repressive government property or that of like minded individuals. It was opportunity not unlike Ferguson or Baltimore or anywhere that progressives can gather to cause mayhem and destruction.

According to some accounts they were paid by Soros step down organizations to cause disruption, chaos and engage police. Starbucks is one of the many progressive owned enterprises that donates large sums of what could be employee profit sharing to the radical Soros groups.

The “demonstrators” just act with Twitter fed mob mentality. They are angered by their own lives. They will probably be the politicians or professors of the future. I seriously doubt that there is a private sector income earner in the group. In fact, I question if there are any income earners in the group at all, even those currently drawing a wage from the public sector.

All this took place during and shortly after the inauguration. There was no time to see if any of the policies of the new administration would be to their liking or benefit. It was all caused because the whining vagina did not receive her crown. It was scripted and directed by the same people who drove the government for the past eight years.  At least that won’t happen any more.

Raising the minimum wage is a prime example of how our economy is in recovery and beginning to flourish. NOT!

One prime example that the left loves to sling crap at is WalMart. Last year WalMart announced that they would be raising wages for those employees paid at the federal (or state in some cases) minimum wage. These are the most needy and in many cases the least skilled of all employees in any industry.

The new minimum wage announced was $9.00, or $1.25 per hour above the federal minimum. By February of this year, 2016, the proposed wage is to be $10.00 per hour. Well…that is for the people who are still employed. According to the current schedule, the retail giant is closing 269 outlets globally on or by January 28. Approximately 150 of which are in the U.S.

With a per store average employment force of about 60 FTE (full-time equivalent) positions, that means a considerable bump to the touted 5% unemployment rate. Many of each store’s positions are part time meaning somewhere between 9,000 and 13,000 U.S. workers from Alaska to Puerto Rico will be idled.

Though WalMart executives claim the move is to “sharpen their portfolio”, it is truly so that they can remain afloat in the economic recovery that Obama lauds. In the fourth quarter of last year, Starbucks also closed 23 La Boulange locations along with two manufacturing facilities. That put a few people out of work, too. Kmart, Sears and JCPenney are following suit by closing locations or folding the businesses completely.  Yeah, we’re rolling now!

As the stock market tanks and oil becomes unworthy of extraction, you can listen to the politicians or open your eyes to the truth and adjust your finances and your lives accordingly. Good luck making the right choice!

Obama’s remaking of America has been very good for the super wealthy. They have flourished. The rest of us…eh, not so much.
