thank you bernie, i’ll keep my job (arlin report thought(s) of the day)

If I were still in the work force (I’ve been retired for almost 3 years now) I’d have some concerns about a minimum wage increase!

If I were working in a grocery store and I was making (lets just say) $12.50 an hour, the idea of having a minimum raise increased to $15.00 an hour would be quite threatening. I don’t think it would matter whether it was a mom and pop neighborhood store or a national chain, I’d fear for keeping my job.

It is very possible I’d be reduced to part-time hours………which at $15 an hour may keep me close to what I was making at full time. Would they, the store want to do that, get less production for the same dollars? Maybe for awhile, and then the inevitable happens, I am released……..now I have no income. Or, when the minimum of $15 hour goes into effect, they just lay me off immediately. Now I lose both the income and benefits (eventually). If somehow I keep the job, cost of benefits may go up as well, I may be required to pay more of the premium. Lots of things happen with minimum wage increases, this high anyway at $15. What about people already making $15 an hour, I guarantee you if they are in union jobs, the demand for an increase is in the next contract renewal date? They usually are anyway, but now those increase demand become larger than they would have. Potential contract strikes in the future.

Full-service check out lanes get turned into self-service lanes, (the full-service check out employees will be let go. Think not? It’s already happening at places like Home Depot and Target. My nearest grocery store just took out a couple of full-service lanes and added MORE “self-service lanes”. One less butcher, one less shelf stocker, checkers are now sweeping floors too!

I’d rather keep my job at $12.50 an hour than to be released from my job, and lose the benefits. Trust me, as soon as the talk in Congress started about an increase, I’d start having some restless nights! That is another thing, lets add in the stress. Sure, now I get to go look for that $15 an hour job, and maybe 3 months later after I have fallen behind on my car payment………I find one. In the mean time, I can’t sign my kids up for little league baseball and have to explain why.

Minimum pay increases in the past, have often been necessary. Salary’s got too far behind inflation and cost of living. I know Bernie Sanders will argue that point for being the case now. Let’s face it, if I am making $12 an hour flipping burgers at McDonalds, that ain’t bad! I didn’t go to work at McDonalds for a career job, unless maybe I am a manager. It is a great place to build work experience, maybe I’m enrolled in higher education classes, and Mc D’s helping pay the way. I’d be looking for more career oriented jobs in the mean time. Jobs that are higher paying than minimum anyway. Here is another thing, I know this for a fact, tellers will be let go in banks, tellers are making slightly over minimum anyway. They are the lowest paid, while being the most visible employee for a bank; and it is not an easy job. You face and deal with the public more than any other employee in the bank; even more than a manager. Most tellers are there only temporarily, some are going to school at night, some are just working to hold them over until they find something better paying (I know, I was that person once). Many tellers are married women, there as a 2nd income for the family. Banks will always keep tellers at the bottom of the pay scale. ALWAYS!

We haven’t even touched on what losses of jobs will do to the community. Tax revenue will be significant.

Bernie Sanders and his Socialist Party are well aware of what a high minimum pay increase will do to businesses, to the work force, and to the communities. They are Socialists……….they know what they are doing, THEY DON’T CARE.

about that biden tax plan


The Biden Tax Plan has Biden’s name on it. Lets be clear about something, while it was read to him and he signed off on it, he is neither capable of writing such a document or understanding it. He does agree with it though, he agrees to what ever is placed in front of him from the far left. He’ll agree (often flip) to what ever in the moment that is convenient for the Socialists…..on command. His Lefty Democratic Socialist comrades wrote this. Here Joe this your Biden Tax Plan, ENDORSE IT! BERNIE, HILLARY, AOC, NANCY, CHUCK, KAMALA, BARACK AND YOUR WIFE SAID IT’S YOUR TAX PLAN.

Biden and the Democratic Socialists don’t care about you/us and that means all of us (Dems, Republicans, Independents….all)! They’ve set themselves up over their political careers quite handsomely. Especially JOE BIDEN………and now we know how! Joe has his millions! He assisted (set up) his ‘bag boy’ Hunter and used him undetected to near perfection for years until a non-politician who vowed to drain the swamp came on the scene. Of course as most crack-heads will do, they screw up sooner or later……..nice timing Hunter! Are we understanding why the left and the MSM hate Trump and have been desperately trying to get him out of office FROM DAY ONE! (Arlin)

a big glimpse of socialism: America go grocery shopping right now!

Image result for photos of empty shelves at schnucks

I am not exaggerating by saying ‘if you want to get a good look of what socialism would look like in the United States of America go grocery shopping right now’. Shelves in some departments are bare and in others dwindling down to be bare soon. Bernie Sander’s America.

I went to our local supermarket to pick up a few things this morning, early, 6:30 AM. They have a window for people 60+ and those with health issues to shop from 6:00 AM to 7:00 AM so we can get to their newly stocked shelves before the rest of the younger and healthier population further drain them. LOL! That was a pathetic sad laugh.

I picked up a gallon of “no fat organic milk” for nearly $7.00. It was one of the remaining milk items left, one of three. I was kind, I left the other two for someone else. Hope they like no fat organic milk. I normally get 1-2 % fat free milk. Here is what is more remarkable, they had absolutely no ground beef, no ground chuck, a few port chops, of which they now have less. The fish, gone! I did pick up some frozen fillets, one of 4 pkgs. left. Again, I was thinking of leaving some for my fellow citizens. If they are stocking the shelves between 10:00 PM and 6:00 AM, I’d hate to see what the shelves look like by mid afternoon.

On paper products like toilet paper, facial tissue and now even paper towels……..GONE. Nothing in sight, that at 6:30 AM this morning. There was no sign there were any of these items on the shelves at even 6:00 AM sharp.

Looks like they did restock with Bunny Bread! All other brands………gone! I was able to pick up some hot dog buns for the beer brats I bought (about 10 pkgs left of the brats).

So, the grocery stores and their vendors should be doing well right now. There were signs hanging from the shelves that read, “if you don’t see it, we ran out and are working with our vendors to restock”. That will also be a slow process, as I am sure there is a big run on the vendors from everywhere. Actually, this could be a great time for less popular brand names to pick up the slack. Some of these salesmen should be pounding doors right now. “We can get it to you tomorrow!!!”

Now is a good place to mention my point of all the above. If you had no idea what socialism looked like before, go out and see it now. Oh, that is only if you can go out. Hopefully you haven’t had a curfew placed on you yet. Empty shelves in grocery stores, a common everyday thingy (as liberal Joe Biden would say) in places like Venezuela. Just for one. I am serious folks, this major midwest/Missour grocery chain I visited this morning had about 20% of their shelves empty. Most edible items are going fast. The paper products are gone. What are on the shelves are items you probably don’t really need to survive or have a lot of at home anyway. Things that you don’t run out of that quickly.

Government is imposing rules (temporary rules I know) on how we socialize, whereto and in numbers. Some people in government want to “NATIONALIZE” some manufacturing industries. That is about control….period!

I get it, drastic action needed to be taken in order to deal with the coronavirus. I would however, argue all day and night it isn’t that much different than what we have dealt with in the past, without this hysteria and panic.

Government(s), and this is not just in the U.S. it is global, are learning just how quickly they can take control of our daily lives, with the assistance or you can even say excuse of a pandemic. They always think they know what is best for us. When do they run this drill again, when there is no virus? Right now, (and I said its to control the virus), they shut us down. No socializing in groups of 50+, in some cases 10+, shut down dining in, schools are closed, bars are closed, food supplies and essentials are dramatically down…….and towns/cities are looking like ghost towns. They are even talking about bringing in National Guard in some areas…….oh and lets not forget some communities have banned the sale of guns. OF COURSE, take advantage while they can! Control, socialism a little bit at a time, hidden in this pandemic exercise we are going through, or not so hidden. How much from this temporary experience will remain when it is said and done?

I understand the virus is real……but this isn’t just about a virus! Go ahead, I can hear it, he’s a conspiracy freak. Quite frankly I am way beyond that……it doesn’t bother me.

This coronavirus (COVID-19) started in China. Do you think China is concerned about losing a few thousand people? NO! So, they could care less about anyone outside of China. Their only interest in the United States is and always has been THEIR UNFAIR TRADE ADVANTAGE. China has always wanted to have a thumb down on us. Keep us somewhat dependent on them. The medicine products and resources to produce medicine is a weapon to use against us. We are dependent on China for much of our meds. That to me is ridiculous. We have pharmaceutical companies, and they should be capable of producing EVERYTHING AND ANYTHING we need. You think we don’t have medical researchers, which includes pharmaceuticals? I’ve gotten off track here, so back on track: John Hopkins, Bill Gates and Mrs Gates (and I believe little George Soros was involved) had this 201 event in NYC. The event was about the ‘coronavirus’. This event occurred 6 weeks before the coronavirus broke out in China. Of course that timeline could be off as far as when it broke out in China, as we are learning China lied about it. So was probably a bit sooner than that. Regardless, Gates is probably also working on the vaccine………conveniently. This to is about $$$$$$$ ! Globalism plays a part in this, I will bet my life on it. What I am saying, it is hard to believe (for me anyway), that all we are going through is coincidental!

This is a test, a test of the American Broadcast System………… if this were a real emergency……

Will it is an emergency, it looks man made!

So, go look, and tell me what you see…….. it isn’t the America our forefathers and fathers and grandfathers, brothers and sisters fought for and they would not recognize today. THIS BETTER BE TEMPORARY!

arlin report thought(s) of the day: biden on that flu thingy!

Image result for photos of a confused Joe Biden
The Right.com Who am I, where am I, and why am I here?

Biden, that would be Joe not Hunter, criticized Trump yesterday as being incompetent. Lets see, JOE what would you do differently? Did Joe learn from the time he was in charge during the Obama administration on the flu…….thingy. Does Joe even remember that period of time, where Obama had to apologize for Biden’s failure? Which was Obama’s failure! How many Americans died from that flu Joe, did you conveniently forget?! This coronavirus (while we still don’t know as much as we will) is not on pace to kill like the flu did under the Obama/JOE BIDEN watch!

Have a great day America, and take Bernie’s advice, “don’t listen to politicians”!

describing socialist bernie sanders as an oxymoron

According to Google, you do not typically call someone an oxymoron. You can describe them as having said something or their actions as ……….actually this is what I am trying to say:  “Normally we would think of oxymoron as things, places or a happenstances, but not a person. … You don’t call someone an oxymoron but describe how they are an oxymoron.” I can say something that is not typical……..this is my blog: ‘Bernie you are an OXYMORON!’ Do you even hear yourself?

Yesterday, Bernie Sanders spoke about the coronavirus and used it in a political way (Of course he isn’t politicizing the coronavirus right?) to call our president and his administration “incompetent”. Then he went on to lecture us.

Bernie said, to paraphrase “We (meaning you and me, NOT HIM) should only listen to scientists, researchers and doctors, NOT POLITICIANS (regarding the coronavirus)”. Then Sanders went on to lecture us on the virus. SO BERNIE, BEING A POLITICIAN THEN SHUT UP! You are a career politician. We should take your advice on this, we should all stop listening to YOU!

Bernie, gave no insight on how he would have done ANYTHING better than Trump. Bernie could only criticize…….and make untruthful statements. Here is what Bernie attempted to do:

After calling Trump and his administration incompetent, Sanders stood and tried to act as if HE WAS THE PRESIDENT. Even though the primaries have indicated Sanders will not and never will be our socialist president. Sanders wants us to listen to him and only him, especially now, as he tries desperately to take advantage of a health crisis. This is a perfect example of a socialist/socialism. He is commander in charge of the podium. Not Trump! “Don’t listen to politicians” Sanders said. But then went on because we are to listen to him. Like Bernie isn’t a politician, he is Bernie………’I am your president and I know what is best for you’! (To be clear, those aren’t his exact words, but may as well have been.) This is socialism speaking!

Bernie can not even hear himself. Bernie Sanders is absolutely a socialist. He has an oxymoron tongue and brain. Bernie Sanders is a socialist oxymoron, and it ain’t no accident!

Bernie help us not listen to a politician………SHUT UP!
