I used to be disgusted, but now I try to be amused.
Hillary Clinton is the most successful pimp in history. She's made millions, and the entire country is her ho.
Let's call it what it was and stop rationalizing it. West was the victim of bigotry and homophobia, and many of those who peresecuted him now preach diversity.
I can't help but wonder whether our concept of change has changed. I think it must have if change is the only constant. But what about change has changed, and when did it change? When will change itself change again, and will that change how we plan for change? How can you plan for change that is changing?
I think you mean "Ignore the facts" and "Hillary earned a lot of money at America's expense from her life of alleged public service."
Oxymoron: Democrat activist with a reasonable, balanced perspective.
In reality businesses don't pay taxes. If their costs increase, they raise the price of the good or service they sell. The consumer pays the increased cost. Some businesses sell products for which there are readily available substitutes. For example, if the cost of a restaurant meal gets too high, people will brown bag instead of buying lunch at a fast food restaurant. The fast food restaurant either finds ways to cut its costs and reduce its prices, or it goes out of business. If the restaurant must pay a high minimum wage, it can reduce its costs by mechanizing and reducing its labor force. Congratulations! You've just hurt the workers whom you were trying to help.
These concepts are basic microeconomics, and like basic arithmetic, they're not political or ideological. Hate it all you like, but it's how the economy works. Magical thinking won't change it, and meddling will have real consequences.
Let's connect some dots. If we implement policies that increase labor costs, eventually it's less expensive to mechanize and eliminate jobs. Businesses that decrease their costs will have a competitive advantage over those that don't. Another illustration of how policy makers actually hurt those whom they're trying to help by meddling with things they don't understand.
