One Hundred Years Ago, the Guns Stopped

There's not much I can add to the commemoration of the Armistice. I dearly wish more people understood it's importance to be remembered.

Minimum Wage

So a new study on the Seattle minimum wage hikes is out and it shouldn't be much of a surprise to anyone who knows economics. Keep in mind:
  • This hasn't even hiked things as much as it soon will.
  • This has been happening in an area that has had relatively strong growth so this is the "best case scenario.
  • This study also doesn't seem to try to measure the effect upon a low earning worker's cost of living.
  • This is still new, the more time goes on the more businesses will do Net Present Value calculations on automating more and more.
So it's worth taking the time to read for yourself for when you have to debate this issue.

The economists caution the results can’t be generalized because Seattle also experienced a big economic boom in the last five years. A fast-growing economy can better absorb wage increases. But even during a boom time, it seems the policy involves trade-offs. It helps workers stuck in low-wage jobs, while harming workers looking to get their first foothold in the economy.

Where's Fancis?

Since I can't be the only one to wonder if Deadpool's lack of success in beating information out of the goons was due to the fact that said goons only knew the baddie by Ajax.

Overplaying Your Hand

Some of the recent statments by people like Tump and Graham about probably having more Indian DNA than Warren(possibly true), got my thinking an old caution that I've thrown out before.

The great challenge is that it's difficult to tell when you're about to overplay your hand when you seem to have momentum. Alas what is usually glaringly obvious in hindsight is difficult to see in foresight.

I suppose the best those of us who aspire to rhetorical persuasion can do is to bear the twin dangers of over playing your hand as well as failing to capitalize on an advantage in our conscious minds to apply to our best judgments.

Some Free Advice

Some free advice for people who think opposing the president by slinging mud with him on twitter is an effective tactic. Not that I think the conceited jackasses will take it, but maybe some reader will remember it and save himself in his own life:

Don't wrestle with pigs. You both get dirty and the pig likes it. - Mark Twain
Also does anybody else think that when he called SD "horse-faced" that he missed typing a "w" at the beginning of the word and autocorrect took it from there?
