If the last 20-30 years has not been proof enough that trickle down economics is complete bullshit, and all the talk about job creators is empty rhetoric, I don’t know what will be.

How did I guess this guy was a republican?

His little line about, “If the government’s going to tell me how much I can get paid and when I can work and when I can’t work, then we have a serious problem in this country,” basically translates to you should have the “freedom” to work as many hours for as little pay as possible.

I simply can’t wrap my head around people who defend this type of mindset who aren’t wealthy.

There’s a video at the link.

A religious leader literally preaching to kiss the wealthy’s ass. There is something so incredibly disgusting about this.

Not only did their lobbying kill this project, it makes it against the law to construct rapid bus transit anywhere in the state.

How long are we going to put up with this type of thing, America?

Kind of gives you a perspective on how these folks view women, doesn’t it?

What absolute bullshit. This is a preemptive strike against working Americans to make sure that they can’t advocate a higher minimum wage for themselves.

I’m just hoping that this will open more people’s eyes as to just who republicans in their state are working for, but it’s a very small hope, considering how much misinformation and straight out brainwashing there is out there concerning the minimum wage.

 guess what’s happened to Denver crime rates in 2014? …

According to new data, they’ve fallen across the board. Property crime is down 14.6% compared to the same period in 2013. Violent crimes are down 2.4%.
