Jefferson City

I ask of thee, spirited protesters who made a lot of noise in the Capitol rotunda this morning:

Why there, why now?

You say you want a $15 an hour minimum wage.  Yeah, the General Assembly could do that.  But it won’t, because that is way above the labor market equilibrium in rural Missouri.  You also say you want union organization and representation for low wage service workers.  If you really wanted that, you’d be organizing that in those work places and among those employees.  And you’d be doing it in a state with a union-friendly political and legal culture — If the General Assembly had passed a RTW bill this spring, one that Nixon would have vetoed, and the General Assembly was going to try to override the veto during this week’s veto session, (and I’ll be in Jefferson City for only one day), then I could see rallying there.  But there was no RTW bill this session.  Even if RTW does happen, it wouldn’t make the unionization of fast feeder employees that much harder, if at all.

You’d think if they were serious they’d try for something like $9 an hour.

OT, but IMPORTANT. Rumors are flying that Hillary died. That collapse yesterday may have been a death caught on camera. She might have been dead before they got her into the van. All Hillary’s events have been cancelled, and Democrat bigwigs are huddling to find a replacement. It would explain why they didn’t take her to the Hospital and instead took her to Chelsea’s place. That double looked off. She was acting happy and healthy like Hillary hasn’t been for years. That pneumonia story reminds me a lot of the “colds” Soviet Premiers had when they died, so the Party could elect a replacement.

I was pulling into the parking lot of a supermarket earlier today and noticed the flag at half-staff. I pulled out my smartphone to check the headlines, hoping against hope…

I was disappointed.

Yet, the media of FDR’s day covered it up.

The kind of polio he had didn’t affect his ability to think. If Hillary has Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s or MS, which is what the grapevine is screaming, then those affect the patient’s ability to think. Which is why I don’t buy the new fashionable theory that FDR had Guillain–Barre instead of polio, because Guillain–Barre is demyelinating, and he never acted like he was suffering from a demyelinating disease.

What amazes me is that Stalin was willing to go along with it. He must’ve really needed those armaments.

Probably needed a second front more. Must’ve been pretty humiliating. They made him sit on the left most of the time.

Apropos of nothing – nobody ever made much hay about Ralph Nader’s droopy mouth being a result of herpes.

Let’s hope the fat fuck’s right….

Let’s hope they keep the bitch pumped up with enough uppers and steroids and eye of newt, to stay in the running through 8pm PST Nov 8.

It's your dime, spill it. And also...NO TROLLS ALLOWED~!
