Response to Major Hogwash (Reply #10)

Fri May 30, 2014, 10:30 PM

12. You can guess how the local news goes in this blood red MidWest state.

They like to poll the area residents on all sorts of things to make them feel important and smart. The other week they went around asking 5 actual real politicians and business owners how they thought raising the minimum wage would affect the economy. Three predicted hellfire and brimstone; one couldn't decide but he was pretty sure it would bring disaster; and the single positive response was extremely weak and tenuous. Then the show host clucked and noted that it didn't look too good....

They don't KNOW a damn thing and care even less. If their little 'polls' ever turned out different from expected, I'm sure they'd carefully select which responses to share. Such blind, stupid arrogance! We said it wouldn't work, so it won't.
