Mayor and Speaker to Seek Further Expansion of Sick Pay – more entitlement


Once again the NY Slimes has a news blackout over Hillary Clinton – 20 subpoenas issued to Gov Christie – BUT NOT ONE against Hillary Clinton or our president over lies and failures causing the death of 4 Americans – Yes Hillary – IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE!

And now the communist Deblasio gets in the act by imposing more free pay. Why not make us like France and Greece – complete failures!

By and

Mayor Bill de Blasio and Melissa Mark-Viverito, the speaker of the City Council, are set to outline plans on Friday to significantly expand the number of city businesses required to provide paid time off for sick employees, according to three people told directly of the plans.

The proposal would represent the first major legislative effort of a city government newly overseen by leaders with staunch liberal views, and it would provide Mr. de Blasio with early tangible evidence of addressing economic inequalities in New York, the central promise of his mayoral campaign.

The Council passed a similar measure last year over the strident objections of Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg and leaders of the city’s corporate class, who argued that it would place a burden on local businesses.

But that bill was viewed by some liberals — including Mr. de Blasio, then a struggling candidate for mayor — as an imperfect compromise: Initially, its requirements for compensated sick days would only apply to businesses that employ at least 20 workers.

Under the proposal to be unveiled, companies with five or more workers would need to provide some form of paid sick leave, potentially placing tens of thousands of additional businesses under the purview of the rules, according to the people told of the plan, who requested anonymity because the particulars of the announcement were not yet intended to be made public.

The issue of sick days was a flash point in last year’s mayoral race. Christine C. Quinn, the previous Council speaker, had blocked the measure for three years, arguing that the bill would damage a fragile local economy, but she came under heavy pressure from liberal opponents to reach a compromise.

The more sweeping version would place New York in line with other cities.

Aides to Mr. de Blasio declined to comment Thursday night.

And, I have never lived with that uncle. (He finally admitted today, (12-05-2013) that he DID know his uncle and that he DID live with him.
And the biggest one of all:
“I, Barrack Hussein Obama, pledge to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America.”

LICH and again a doctor failure

LICH is supposed being developed by a private medical group to make a medical mall.
PERFECT IDEA – no unions!
So why did not the doctors ban together and do this? NY would have given them 10 years of no taxes, loans etc.. – instead they bitch how closing a hospital is “bad” yada yada
as stated, doctors have no right to be involved in anything other than treating patients – they have no understanding of business & legislation and deserve a smaller and smaller share of reimbursements for simple being STUPID!

You reap what you sow – and doctors sow noting……………….

Obama’s vs free market and competition

Think of this as a companion piece to “Poverty and Free Will” from yesterday, because now President Obama has jumped on Pope Francis’ remarks and used them to bash capitalism, so there’s more to say on the subject.

Obama loves to use the language of markets and choice, stealing the trappings of capitalism to conceal socialist compulsion and political corruption.  Challenged on the point, he would probably portray himself as a champion of capitalism… the right kind of capitalism, that is.  He doesn’t like the free-range variety.  He thinks it has to be hemmed in, limited, and controlled, made subject to the superior wisdom of the Ruling Class.  There are so many noble and important things free people must be forced to do, because they cannot be trusted to understand the vision of the Ruling Class and cooperate voluntarily!  But once that stuff is out of the way, you can enjoy your economic liberty in whatever portion of the heavily taxed, regulated, and mandated economy the government deems safe for its children.  To someone like Obama, the “free market” is a small playground surrounded by very high walls, chaperoned by an almighty State.

Obama-style socialism is particularly concerned with protecting the free market’s “losers.”  Individual welfare now reaches well into the “middle class” – it’s about protecting lifestyles, not feeding the hungry.  Corporate welfare on a mind-boggling scale takes care of politically favored companies that cannot compete effectively, from General Motors to the long string of hugely expensive green energy disasters Obama forced us to finance.

Virtually everything activist government does is anti-competitive.  The effort to ensure there are no “losers” is anti-competitive by definition.  No losers means no winners.  There’s a big difference between providing a safety net for the destitute and trying to outlaw failure, especially when the latter is done at the corporate level, with gigantic bailouts and subsidies.

Anti-competition is very valuable to big-money interests.  It’s how they prevent smaller competitors from muscling into their business.  One of the silliest fairy tales in American politics holds that Big Business supports small government.  That’s absolute nonsense.  Big Business loves Big Government – they do a lot of business with each other. Big Government imposes laws and restrictions that hurt small operations far more than they hurt Big Business, which makes the pain very tolerable for the latter.  Government can crush up-and-coming competitors merely by requiring they meet standards which large, established corporations already surpass, or can much more easily afford to comply with.  These standards are often sold as liberal-populist measures, but they’re music to the ears of big-bucks donors in corporate boardrooms.

For example, to turn back to the big story of the year, ObamaCare includes a provision that limits the profit insurance companies can realize in any given year.  This sounds like a populist exercise of punitive liberalism, which makes it appealing to the dupes and suckers the Left relies on for its power.  Yeah, sock it to those greedy corporate bastards!  Limit their profits!  Never mind what’s happening to me and my family – as long as some rich fat cat loses a million bucks, I’m happy as a clam!

But in reality, this rule is a godsend to large, established corporate players in the insurance industry, because it keeps new competitors out of the market.  Start-ups generally lose a lot of money in the early days.  Investors and entrepreneurs are willing to risk losses up front, in the hope of securing big profits later.  Cap the profit in any given year, and suddenly the big losses up front don’t make sense any more.  Large, entrenched interests, which are already long past the early, scary, money-losing days of entrepreneurial adolescence, are much more prepared to deal with profit caps.  The concept is almost overwhelmingly anti-competitive… and it hurts middle-class business people and their prospective employees far more than it inconveniences fat cats with old money in the bank.

President Obama has also begun touting a minimum-wage hike, in an effort to distract from the failure of ObamaCare.  That’s another anti-competitive boondoggle that hurts the people it’s supposed to be helping.  Employees are hoping to sell their labor, which involves some degree of competition with one another.  Minimum wages are a form of price control that interferes with such competition.  By raising the cost of labor, it strangles demand and leads to higher unemployment, but that’s only part of the story.

The minimum wage also hinders the ability of employees to win salary increases and promotion based upon merit.  You might think, “Well, who cares?  I’d rather start at $15 dollars an hour than work for less, and hope that maybe one day I’ll get a raise to $15.”  That attitude is poisonous to the work ethic, because it removes all incentives for employees to achieve and try harder.  If everyone gets hired for $15 and nobody gets a raise, it’s foolish to do anything more than the minimum necessary to avoid termination… which, as anyone who ever made a payroll will tell you, is a very difficult proposition.

That’s another reason higher minimum wages are anti-competitive: employment is a huge risk for the employer, made greater by the difficulty of terminating employees.  Each new hire requires a considerable investment in training up front.  It usually takes a while before new people are producing work value in excess of their salary cost (which is far higher than their gross pay, due to benefits and administrative expenses.)  Activists calling for a $15 “living wage” for fast-food employees should understand that workers hired for the current minimum wage – which they’re never stuck making for long, if they’re any good – already cost the employer more than $15 an hour.  Even in the lowest-skilled positions, a new employee must accumulate considerable experience before their work product is worth more than what they get paid.

When the minimum wage is raised, it therefore becomes more difficult for a competitive job seeker – an aggressive salesman of his own labor – to persuade employers to take a chance on him.  The difficulty is even greater for low-skill positions that cannot easily be won by flashing academic credentials and an impressive resume, which is probably one reason why ivory-tower academic theorists see nothing but upside to minimum wage increases.  It’s great to be a credentialed professional in high demand who has to fend off corporate headhunters.  But most of us go into a job interview with the basic goal of convincing the management to take a chance on us, make room for us, give us an opportunity to show them what we can do.  And we want them to hire more people than they absolutely need, because that’s how a job market grows.  We want vibrant and productive competition for jobs in an expanding marketplace, not today’s grim slog, in which every employer is trying to figure out how they can make do with fewer human resources.

With that in mind, I propose that competition is a vital component of prosperity, which means it’s an indispensable weapon against poverty.  Competitive capitalism is the best way to allocate resources – the Obama years are but the latest lesson in the hideous inferiority of ideology and Ruling Class diktats.  Competition matches supply to demand, terminates unsustainable business models, and produces healthy jobs that last, instead of make-work positions that disappear when subsidies dry up.  A competitive job market brings out the best in every person, giving us incentives to reach higher and achieve more… which, in turn, creates the wealth necessary to finance a safety net for the truly needy.

Furthermore, the notion that capitalism leaves nothing but excessively wealthy “winners” and destitute “losers” is a product of the limited socialist imagination.  That’s how their statist ideology works – the Ruling Class chooses winners who benefit, and extracts financing from submissive losers.  In the free market, “win” and “loss” are highly relative terms.  A scrappy competitor can do very well for himself without “vanquishing” anyone.  Look at Apple, a company often referenced in Obama’s speeches.  They’ve done good business in the computer world without coming anywhere near defeating or destroying Microsoft’s dominant position.  Apple, in turn, is the big dog in the world of iPhones and iPads, but plucky competitors are doing very good business by running against them.

Private investors have a keen eye for good opportunities.  That leads to the kind of business growth that creates voluntary employment, which is far superior to doing the bidding of the State, or living on a welfare allowance.  There’s really only one alternative to poverty: employment.  That’s never going to be a resource that can be re-distributed according to ideological whim, even under politicians who are as wise and selfless as all of them claim to be.

Government control of what we eat

Under the guise of “unsafe”, the FDA – aka the government, determines whats good for us – is not extending the FDA control over our foods linked to our health insurance costs? They CAN make illegal ANY foods the government determines are “no good” for us.

I suggest we all watch the FDA and other agencies to “see” if they are excising more control over us.


The Food and Drug
Administration today took a step toward potentially eliminating trans fats from
the food supply with a preliminary determination they are no longer
“generally recognized as safe.”

Trans fats are found in a variety of frozen, canned and baked processed foods.
Partially hydrogenated oils are the major dietary source of trans fats in
processed food. Trans fats have been linked to an increased risk of heart
disease.

If the preliminary determination is finalized, according to the FDA, then
partially hydrogenated oils will become food additives subject to premarket FDA
approval. Foods with unapproved additives cannot legally be sold.

Christianity under attack!

Florida history book has chapter on Muslim Religion BUT no other!
When asked – school states its “implied” about other religions!

Exactly what the Muslim Brotherhood wants!
Wake up America!

Dolphin Football Players a bunch of panzies and other ramblings

The Miami Dolphin that complained of “bullying” “looks” weak in mind. Have we become so sensitive? Have we lost our compass in life? I feel we are heading towards a society were we will be afraid to speak to look at anyone for fear of reprisal and offending. A Society where we walk along and never learn the agony of defeat or the joy of victory. Our Enthusiasm and drive sapped by society’s inability to understand that there are winders and losers, not everyone is equal and not everyone deserves what you have. Our schools and politicians are making us all weak socially and emotionally and by taking GOD out of our lives, we have no where to turn for salvation. A study done showing the rise in mental health issues in young people – a topic for another post.

Interesting that we “hear” a lot about teen suicides – is it on the rise? Is not FACEBOOK and TWITTER to blame for these? Since they have been linked to depression? Since Suicides are, so we hear, because they were FACEBOOKED and TWITTERED? Since the Miami Dolphin saw a TWITTER post berating him?

If I am liable for calling someone’s cell phone when I know they are driving and my parents are liable for what I do on the internet, THAN why are not the companies that make these products also liable OR at least have warning labels?

Yes, warning labels all over FACEBOOK and TWITTER – “Use of these services has been known to cause depression and should be carefully monitored and controlled…”

We do it for cigarettes and alcohol, ladders, extension cords and anything else we buy – you know what I am speaking of – the LARGE warning labels on EVERYTHING we purchase………..
