In case you hadn’t heard, New York is raising its minimum wage to $15 an hour — but only for fast-food workers at places with more than 30 locations.

At first glance, this seems bizarre. Why fast food? Why places with more than 30 locations? In The New York Times, Josh Barro notes that these sorts of policies create substantial distortions — radically altering the labor market for unskilled labor, for example, and potentially discouraging chains from growing beyond 29 locations.

They’ll also put existing fast-food outlets at a disadvantage to smaller chains, which sounds great when you think about all those McDonald’s Corp. executives with their massive bonuses, and less great when you realize that franchising is the way a lot of minorities and immigrants climb the ladder to economic prosperity.

The Obama administration is violating a judge’s order to turn over documents in the Aug. 6, 2011, shootdown of a U.S. helicopter — call sign Extortion 17 — that killed members of SEAL Team 6 in Afghanistan, a watchdog group is charging.

On the fourth anniversary of the worst one-day loss of military life in the war on terror, families of the dead say they are aghast that the government will not honor basic requests under the Freedom of Information Act.

“It has now been four years since Extortion 17 was shot down,” said Doug…

DEVELOPING: Several Admirals and Generals Accusing Obama of Treason…

Op-ed by Voice of Reason, THE LAST GREAT STANDObama-mad-1024x535.jpgArticle III the Constitution states: “Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.”

Let’s get a few things straight. Obama has committed treason in so many ways and so many times most people have lost track of the official count. Let’s look at the FACTS for a moment. Forget for a brief moment how quickly a republican would be thrown out of office with this nonsense swirling around all the time, and stop and realize we are letting a COMMUNIST get away with from OUR OWN the Oval Office.

Logan’s Warning to Richard Dawkins ~ Christianity is NOT the Threat

Richard Dawkins

When I first started speaking out against Islam I used to look up to the likes of Frank Gaffney, and Daniel Pipes. But after some time I realized that Frank’s call for an Islamic reformation, and Daniel’s age old slogan of “militant Islam is the problem, moderate Islam is the solution” are just not working. In fact those calls are nothing more than detrimental false hope.
Of course they are entitled to their opinion, but the real problem is that many people see them as leaders and so they follow their lead off the cliff. Because they are handing non-Muslims an easy out on this issue.
It is hard enough to get people to fight this war (non-violently), and stating Islam is going to reform is the equivalent of going…

4th Planned Parenthood video shows clinic staff knowingly flouting laws

A California judge’s order blocking temporarily the release of some undercover footage targeting Planned Parenthood failed to slow down the pro-life group behind the searing and increasingly graphic videos targeting the family planning and abortion giant.

Shortly after a restraining order was issued on some secretly filmed footage, a fourth video was released Thursday that suggests Planned Parenthood officials are well aware of federal prohibitions on buying and selling fetal parts and are taking steps to avoid looking like they are “you know, selling fetal parts across states.”
