Daft old codger: It’s time to raise the minimum wage

Yesterday that daft old codger Joe Biden tweeted this galaxy take.

Is he kidding with this?

I realize old codger Joe spent the last several months holed up in his basement, but has he forgotten that nine months ago states ordered businesses shut down to “slow the spread?”

I guess he could’ve forgotten. After all, this is the same idiot who claimed the 56% of Americans who said they were better off under Trump than Obama must have bad memories.

We’ve lost tens of thousands of small businesses since thanks to panicky governors. Tens of thousands of businesses that aren’t coming back.

And to add insult to injury, we just endured a summer of riots that left businesses looted, burned and left with billions of dollars in damage.

Only a daft, oblivious old codger can look out at all the economic destruction of the last nine months and conclude, “It’s long past time to raise the minimum wage.”

I don’t know whose advising this old coot, but whoever they are know nothing about operating a small business.

There’s this old Medieval torture where you lay the prisoner on the ground, cover him with a plank, then proceed to add one weight after another until he’s crushed to death.

This is what this old codger wants to do to small businesses in America.

Daft old codger: It's time to raise the minimum wage

You thought the economy was being crushed because of COVID?

Just wait till this old codger and his anti-free market economic team get to work.

Piling a minimum wage on top of all the crushing weight of the last nine months will destroy what old codger Joe just last week called “the backbone of America.”

This isn’t “Build Back Better.”

This is “Add Another Weight to the Prisoner Until We Shatter His Backbone.”

Good heavens, the next four years are going to suck so hard.

    George Orwell warned us. Too many of us didn’t listen.

    I’m changing my voter registration from R to I. And some day, if there’s a MAGA Party, I’ll change it to that.

    I do not understand how God allowed this to happen. Shakes my faith somewhat.

      I’ve been asking myself the same question.

      Maybe the rapture will occur at 1201 pm on January 20, 2020

      God did not “allow this to happen”. It is not His doing that causes men to abandon their ability to think.

        100% correct!! As well as ‘common sense’. It was allowed to die when we didn’t do anything to prevent what was happening in our schools. Not common sense anymore, it’s common core.

    The next four years? Try the next 12 years, or beyond. Thanks to election fraud the Republic is doomed. I do not see any fair elections from this day forward.
    Plus, Biden is not joking, he has dementia and can’t dress himself. He most likely forgot what happened three days ago.

      JMHO but I don’t see the end of it. Praying that I am wrong. As soon as the Evilcrats start fully implementing their socialism, our Republic will be history. With them controlling all 3 branches and all the courts ruling for them, voting will be done away with. (They said so)It would never be honest or fair anyway. No Constitution, no Amendments. Where is the money to come from for a 15$ min increase? No one working to pay taxes, corporations will disappear again to foreign places-more missing money. It ain’t gonna be pretty folks. Me and mine are hoping for the best and preparing for the worst. Again ~ Praying that I am wrong~

    The min wage law increase is an old standby for the Democrats. Does it really help? There has been plenty of studies and anecdotal evidence that it does not help. Yet the Dems are full speed ahead on that because it feels right. Of course, the Dems want to be sure that all of the illegal aliens who are going to be surging across the border are able to have a living wage (sarc off).

    I’d like to think that the Rapture might be coming soon but even a cursory reading of the Revelation of John the Apostle makes it clear that we’re in for some degree of suffering. I thought that the idea of imprinting a barcode on persons receiving the COVID vaccine was the advent of the mark of the Beast. They seem to have backed away from that somewhat. The Old Testament records that the people of Israel had to suffer under unjust and ungodly rulers before God’s judgment was rendered on the wicked. It appears that we must as well.

    The Place Card Holder states: “It’s long past time to raise the minimum wage, so hardworking people earn at least $15 an hour.” Who does this brainless person think will be receiving those stimulus checks? If there were a lot of ‘hard working people’ out there, wouldn’t need stimulating. Get us all back to work, THEN think about an increase! {back to work 🤣}
    **It’s only been shown like a gazillion times- only watched ONCE, so was it the Tin Man or the Scare Crow that needed a brain? Just so I’ll know next time what to call The Place Card Holder? Now if only we start calling all the Evilcrats – FLYING MONKEYS.
