Here's the thing: They probably eventually will give fast food workers a raise to something approaching $30,000 a year, if you work full-time (though they won't schedule anyone any more than about 30 hours a week, to avoid having to pay certain benefits), but the days where any ol' guy off the street could walk into a McDonald's and get a job flipping burgers, or at least pushing a broom (if you can't be trusted around the Big Macs) are already long gone. Fast food will come to be viewed as a job for the kind of white chicks who used to do a lot of low-level corporate make-work that's since been automated or (virtually) shipped off to India. That's the only reason you're even hearing discussion of increasing fast food wages.

Prediction: Baton Rouge or some racist southern city will actually do this, and then you'll start to see it all over.
Residents in Baton Rouge's unincorporated southern municipalities are petitioning to form their own city, called St. George.

You pick up more leftist ideology (along with, granted, a lot of plain ol' BS) in these Alex Jones videos than you can in a lot of liberal publications these days, which have become more concerned with rape prevention. #conspiracy
The National Football League once again revealed itself to be little more than an establishment political tool when it declined to run a Super Bowl ad submitted by rifle manufacturer Daniel Defense.
The company's "offensive" ad depicts a former marine arriving home to greet his wife and child, accompanied by a voice over stating, "no one has the right to tell me how to defend them."

This is so true it's hardly a conspiracy theory.
Just in time for the holiday frenzy. Amazon.com CEO Jeff Bezos has every news network and TV show talking about his website for free.
