How to Destroy a State


CA Dem pols have just passed a $15/Hr minimum wage. Sheer idiocy.

First rung in job ladder for kids? Gone. First rung for low skill immigrants? Gone. First rung for the blue collar workers Dems fantasize they care about? Gone.

Staying in CA now dumber than staying in Detroit in the 1970s.

Unless you’re a top-1% tech worker, CA DOESNT WANT YOU, your family, your kids, your business.

No families = no kids = no schools (check how few kids & schools in SF) = no future employees = no future jobs. Then no one will remain to pay these […]

The most important of these is this: Had 100,000 Middle Class American kids stood their ground, said – and believed, “Hell no, we won’t go,” and been willing to go to jail for their beliefs – rather than to Canada and Sweden – tens of thousands of American lives would have been saved – and arguably hundreds of […]

Minimum Wage Absurdity

The absurdity of these people always astounds me. It’s like they never outgrew their bible.

Here’s the deal. It’s complex, but not that complex. Anyone in 9th grade oughta be able to grasp it – which is why the bedwetters don’t/won’t/ can’t.

  1. A corporation is a THING, an inanimate object. It has no “duties,” moral, ethical or otherwise, any more than does your car or your carpet.
  2. The people who run public corporations have two duties. A legal duty to maximize shareholder earnings (really to ensure best use of company money/earnings/investment, which is the same thing) by making
