When fast-food workers in Miami walked off the job to protest for a higher minimum wage, they didn’t expect to be questioned by Chris Delamo.
But as a citizen journalist, Chris felt it was his duty to ask these fast-food protesters about their views and explain to them the economic consequences of raising the minimum wage.
He explained to Watchdog Wire why this video matters:
“This video is important to my community because minimum wage increases do NOT help the poor. Money is only a paper REPRESENTATION of value, not value itself. Money REPRESENTS real-world tangible assets like resources, efficiency, innovation, commodities, creativity, etc. Giving people more green pieces of paper does not actually increase the real-world tangible things that money represents. Thus, no one actually becomes wealthier as a result. Minimum wage increases are a distraction and delusion that tricks the poor into thinking they’re being represented and aided.”
In this case, the incidents are black on black. Is that why Jackson, Sharpton and Holder, who love to find cameras and microphones on issues that become front-page and lead television national news day-after-day, are so noticeable by their silence?
Watchdog.org reporter Jason Hart recently published a “Meet the Bosses” list of America’s 100 highest-paid union officers and employees. In all, he found that they received a total $54.8 million in direct compensation, taken from employees last year. If you kept going down the list of top earning union officers and employees, you’d find that 472 of them were paid more than $250,000 in 2013.
The cost of the Obamacare subsidy that the U.S. Treasury will pay on behalf of people who earn under 400 percent of the federal poverty level and who buy a government-approved health-care plan on a government-run health-insurance exchange will increase by approximately 8-fold in its first ten years of operation, according to the latest budget estimate from the Congressional Budget Office.
Moody’s Investors Service, one of the nation’s major credit-rating agencies, conducted a study on each state’s pension liability as a percentage of state revenue and found that Illinois has the highest in the country by a wide margin.

The lost jobs count goes on and on... RICK NOLAN...ALL RHETORIC...NO JOBS...
Ok, we know Romney is a very nice guy, he has a beautiful family. He also would have been a better President than Barack Obama. Not that that would be that hard.
But it's time to MOVE ON. The Republicans seem locked into two methods of self-destruction: Listening to their Liberal advisors who tell them to become Democrat "Lite", and running their decrepit losing candidates AGAIN and AGAIN. No Jeb Bush, and please no Romney...please.
Perhaps Fanning and the Mayor dream of a day when Barack Obama visits the city and they can proudly proclaim they are playing on "The People's Golf Course", comrade!
Hopefully the streets don't burst open from Duluth's ancient aqueduct system.
Proof positive that the DFL loves to spend your money on the ridiculous, but rarely the necessary.
Despite some who would argue that corporal punishment in some cases is not only lawful but needed, the allegations here seem to exceed practical standards. Whipping a nude child about the legs, buttocks and genitals to the point of bleeding is not the same as a spanking. Further allegations, if true, of Peterson leaving a facial scar on his other Baby's Mama's child expose a possible pattern.
Personally, as much as I hate the PC movement, it's best that Peterson sit it out until he is found innocent of allegations, if he even can be.
The “Affordable Care Act” continues to prove that it is anything but affordable, as more and more families are struggling with rising premiums, deductibles, and co-pays. Stories of lost coverage and outrageous expenses associated with Obamacare have been flooding the news for a while now, but some are just downright heartbreaking…like that of Pattie Curran.
The law is no impediment to the Democrats. Were this done by a Republican, it would be front page NYT fodder, ending in "Gate" and lasting for months and/or the term required for public departure and disgrace. But now they will refuse to report it, as they always do.
Unless the case involves significant bodily harm, a first offense will generally not result in discipline until there has been a disposition of the proceeding (or until the investigation is complete in the case of employee or workplace misconduct). With respect to repeat offenders, the Commissioner may impose discipline on an expedited basis.
First of all, whipping a small child about the legs, buttocks, and genitals to the point of bleeding seems to be "considerable bodily harm", no? And in the current environment, a "repeat offender" will surely incur the wrath of the beleaguered Commish, one would think.
McDonald’s move towards dehumanization, launched as a pilot last winter and expanded across San Diego last week, is part of a larger trend of chain eateries turning tablets into your full-time restaurant buddy: equal parts menu, server and paycheck. Applebee’s, Panera Bread and even airport bars have installed tablets to allow diners to order food or booze without a wait.
Chili’s became the U.S. king of human-less ordering this summer when it installed more than 45,000 tabletop tablets nationwide.
The suspects are described as:
•White male in his mid-20s, heavy-set build, about 6 feet tall wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, black stone-washed jeans, black tennis shoes and a blue bandana. He displayed a black semi-automatic handgun.
•White male in his mid-20s, heavy-set build, about 5 feet, 9 inches tall wearing a maroon or purple hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans and a mask. He displayed a silver semi-automatic handgun.
Of course, look on to the end of this article and note the ridiculous reason that some are giving for the ice build up--Global Warming!
This doesn't hold up guys, you were the on predicting "ice-free" arctic conditions, you can't suddenly say that more ice is what happened instead.
The only question has to be: When will the Left begin screaming about the threat of the "New Ice Age"?
If Johnny Cochran were alive today (not to say he still isn't an active voter in WI) he would likely say, "If We can't cheat, we're going to be Beat!!" and he would be right. What is so wrong with asking someone to prove they haven't voted multiple times, if they are coming as a dead person or family pet? Nothing at all...unless you are a Democrat.
A Minneapolis man is dead after being attacked by an assailant who called him a “cracker,” and then stabbed him in the neck multiple times. The racial detail is being left out of many news reports about the case.
Too bad he doesn't work for the NFL, I suppose, he could keep on filming while lengthy legal arguments and months wind down.
Note that we here at the DDX don't shy from exposing those who would be considered close to our beliefs (2nd amendment rights in this case)--pedophiles and their kind deserve damnation, or in the very least a good amount of ant-hill time.
Were this the DFL they would hide him in their rather extensive closet of geeks and freaks and be fine with it. Not here, people.
Let's hope the NRA will buy ads on the Twin Ports and Bemidji TV stations. Believe it or not, there are still people up here that don't know about Michael Bloomberg or Donny P. Ness' love affair with him.
What do you get when you bring self-described liberals to the firing range for the first time? A very interesting video (along with a rookie mistake), as BuzzFeed found out.
The folks over at BuzzFeed Yellow decided to bring together a group of five anti-gun proponents and capture their reactions before and after firing guns for the first time. Those reactions were quite animated.
The participants got to shoot a pistol and a shotgun. One guy said he felt “badass” after firing the latter, even though the exercise didn’t change his mind. Another said, “It was kind of enjoyable, but then I was getting sickened at me feeling enjoyable about it.”
Still, one woman seemed more intrigued, admitting that it was an “adrenaline rush” and even though it’s “fu**ed up” and she feels “conflicted,” she “would probably come back and do it again.”
Watch below for their before-and-after comments, and note the mistake the woman who wants to do it again makes at about the 2:18 mark:
Democratic Mayor Gordon Jenkins—a member of Michael Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns—was arrested Thursday on bribery charges, the latest in a long string of legal and ethical foibles by Jenkins.
State income tax: 5.35% - 7.85%
State sales tax: 6.875%

The North Star State where ice hockey reigns and moose roam free gives retired residents a chilly reception.
Minnesota imposes a hefty personal income tax, sale tax (though food, clothing and medication is exempt) and property tax. It also taxes retirement income, including Social Security benefits and pensions, and wants a piece of your estate.
The state does offer a break to those 65 and older with household incomes of $60,000 or less, with a property tax deferral program that limits the amount of property tax they pay to 3 percent of total household income.
Detroit’s bankruptcy is about numbers: a 26 percent drop in population since 2000, 78,000 abandoned properties, $10 billion in underfunded pension and health care obligations for public employees and billions more in bond and other debt that make it impossible to pay for adequate city services.
Wisconsin's public employees in unions make 7.8 percent more in salary than their non-union colleagues and 7.9 percent more when benefits are included. This is referred to as a "union premium." Wisconsin's premium is greater than the national average of 6.8 percent and 7.4 percent respectively.
The average unionized public employee makes $35.43 an hour in wages and benefits, for an annual total compensation of $73,611. A non-unionized public employee makes $32.80 an hour, or $68,224 per year. That is a difference of $5,387 per employee.
Union membership is down but Big Labor bosses’ profits are up. More than 400 labor chiefs pocketed at least $250,000 each last year, even as their collective ranks fell by 400,000 members. They say they are fighting for the working class. Not quite. We did the math…
"The well-known co-owner of popular businesses such as Fitger's Brewhouse and Burrito Union has been at UMD since 1989. However, after months of questions and an investigation - has been let go."
The violations included the following:
• "Violation of the Regent's Policy on Outside Consulting and Other Commitments and the Administrative Policy on Outside Consulting and Other Commitments.""
• "Violations of the Regent's Policy of Nepotism and Personal Relationships and Administrative Policy on Managing Nepotism and Personal relationships."
• "Untruthfulness during and Office of Equal Opportunity investigation."
• "Violation of the Administrative Policy on Acceptable Use of Information Technology Resources."
• Inappropriate sexual conduct with a UMD student on University premises, and during work hours."
I am writing this to highlight the disconnect the majority of government workers have with those in the private sector. Is it too much to ask that government employees’ benefits be more in line with those in the private sector? Is it possible the attitude of “I’ve got mine” is so prevalent throughout this class of workers that they just don’t care?
Libtards don't get confused with facts. Libtards keep voting DFL for more taxes and fees so their government union buddies can keep living high off the hog AND support fellow Libtard No Jobs Nolan and his gang of anti-mining enviro-radical extremists.
This is why Marx Dayton and the DFL henchmen are gutting middle class incomes more with all of the DFL's 2013 tax increases. Expect the income migration out of Minnesota to gain greater momentum as the DFL desperately attempts to keep all of the government union folk and retirees happy...at the expense of those left behind.
Excerpted from Zero Hedge: While what little remains of America’s middle class is happy and eager to put in its 9-to-5 each-and-every day, an increasing number of Americans – those record 91.5 million who are no longer part of the labor force – are perfectly happy to benefit from the ever more generous hand outs of the welfare state. Prepare yourself before listening to this… calling on her self-admitted Obamaphone, Texas welfare recipient Lucy, 32, explains why “taxpayers are the fools”…
The DFLX received a new production from an email tipster. Apparently DFL Duluth's 'Clean and Safe' crew do not go behind the Historic Norshor. OccuFAIL Duluth has been known to loiter in the neighborhood at the crumbling but Historic Kozy Bar property.
Bergson got his first OWI after crashing into a bridge near Spooner on Dec. 9, 2005, while he was serving as Duluth’s mayor. Last November, he was found guilty of his second offense by a Sauk County jury and served a 22-day jail sentence earlier this year.
Bergson, 57, of Waunakee, Wis., pleaded guilty Monday to his third OWI, a misdemeanor offense, in Dane County Circuit Court.
Partly sunny until late afternoon then becoming mostly cloudy. Areas of fog early in the morning. Isolated showers and thunderstorms early in the afternoon. Numerous showers and thunderstorms late in the afternoon. Highs 67 to 72. Northwest winds 10 to 15 mph. Chance of rain 60 percent.
You do not need a lie detector to read between the lines in this article. There will never be enough money for this superintendent and screwal board.
DFL Duluth had the highest participation fee in six of the 10 — volleyball, soccer, basketball, swimming, baseball and softball. In two other sports, football and hockey, Duluth was second-highest at $235 and $500, respectively.
The University of Wisconsin System and the billion dollar surplus controversy was, once again, the center of the debate at the Joint Committee on Finance. Back in 2013, Legislators and the Governor demanded answers from the UW System when the legislature's CPA Caucus discovered a hidden, $1 billion cash surplus. The political reaction to this discovery was so negative and severe that Gov. Scott Walker immediately called for a two-year tuition freeze on all UW campuses, which was included in the 2013-2015 state budget.
The first 477 DFL Duluth public schools administrators and teachers take over $100,000 per year in salary and benefits. Not bad for 8 months of showing up. Click on the title above and see for yourself.
Do you get a $40,000 benefit package and taxpayer backed against losses retirement fund? How about additional pay to cover your medical deductible that can even be carried forward as deferred compensation? DFL Duluth Federation of Teachers members do thanks to their union backed school board members.
Reviewing the public records, DFL Duluth's superintendent appears to have much less education that the other top 25 paid superintendents in MN presented in this link.
DFL Duluth Schools current 'leader' had very little superintendent experience, serving only 2 years and an assistant superintendent. Yet the DFL Duluth union run screwal board is paying the second highest salary in the state of MN.
With screwal board decisions like this, is it any wonder why ISD709 has big money problems?
Thanks to the DFL’s hostility towards mining, Eveleth’s median household income is $23,600 less than the statewide average. Virginia’s median household income is $22,700 less than the statewide average. Hibbing’s median household income is $21,600 less than the statewide average.
The DFL is controlled by the environmental activists of the Twin Cities. Just ask Tina Smith about that.
The TV networks seem to have two tracks in covering Democratic scandals: ignore them, or if coverage is unavoidable, ignore the party label of the unethical politician under investigation. Often, Republicans in an ethical probe are blown up into alleged national problems for the GOP.
Most people do not realize the extent to which unions dominate special interest spending on elections. When you talk about special interests, it is hardly worth mentioning any other than unions. This chart, from Open Secrets, shows the fifteen largest contributors to federal campaigns during the period 1989-2012. Ten of the fifteen are unions.
Unions have chosen to turn themselves into an arm of the Democratic Party rather than represent their members.
The North Carolina State Board of Elections has found thousands of instances of voter fraud in the state, thanks to a 28-state crosscheck of voter rolls. Initial findings suggest widespread election fraud.
•765 voters with an exact match of first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in N.C. and the other state in the 2012 general election.
•35,750 voters with the same first and last name and DOB were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in both states in the 2012 general election.
•155,692 voters with the same first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state – and the latest date of registration or voter activity did not take place within N.C.
