A $15 minimum wage would reduce the number of Americans living in poverty by a little over a quarter of one percent. According to either party, it would be preferable to see at least 4 years of INCREASING poverty.

In case you still haven't realized that everyone you support in Washington is either a brainwashed cultist, a sociopath, or both.

"Fight for $15 organizing, which has enjoyed many state and local victories ever since late 2012, when fast food workers gave the demand prominence with a national walkout"

"Since the federal proposal phases it in gradually, by the time most workers get it in 2025, $15 an hour will be worth around 20 percent less than it was in 2012"

I'm looking forward to hanging out. I'll ping you again later.

Reminder! Tomorrow night! Hang out with me as I test the next release of .

You know what out-of-pocket costs are? Costs. They're just plain costs. They use the term because it sounds better than "fuck you, pay more, you sick poor person."

"The corrective is for journalists to rebuild trust and faith with the public by exposing their misinformation and proving to the public that they will do accurate and reliable reporting regardless of which faction is aggrandized or angered.

"But corporate media outlets and Democrats (excuse the redundancy) who spent the last four years posturing as virulent defenders of press freedoms never meant it."

"National governments and traditional news outlets have presented the standoff as a struggle between democratic nations and out-of-control corporations. But this conflict is anything but. At its heart, the battle is not one between democracy and monopoly. Rather, it’s a battle over who gets to enjoy monopoly power."

I've ordered two more Virginia-dominant blends to sample but, if they bite me like the rest, I'm perfectly happy being a burley guy.

"'As a result of the City of Long Beach's decision to pass an ordinance mandating Extra Pay for grocery workers, we have made the difficult decision to permanently close long-struggling store locations in Long Beach,' a Kroger spokesperson told NPR.

ok so, as a step towards pushing for more open-source work remuneration, I have setup github sponsors stuff. see it at github.com/sponsors/falkTX

I know not everybody likes github, but we have to appreciate their effort of trying to bring money to such projects. I have git.kx.studio/ as a backup in case everything fails.

I will be setting up "sponsor" links in all my projects, like you can see in github.com/falkTX/kuriborosu

On the topic of opensource work and donations, I have always been too ashamed to ask for anything.

I already have a liberapay and patreon page, plus a dedicated donations page on kx.studio site, but they are often sorta hidden away, I never really "advertise" them.

But as life situation gets complicated, it is time to change that, right?
It is still a dream to work on open-source stuff full-time, but feels like the right time now to try and push for it.

Dem primary coverage was totally unbiased.

"But their lucrative scheme could never have succeeded without the knowingly fraudulent cooperation of liberal networks such as MSNBC and CNN. Over and over, those Democratic Party spokespeople masquerading as TV journalists — knowing exactly who these bottom-feeding GOP operatives have always been — encouraged their misguided and trusting viewers to regard the Lincoln Project as a selfless and noble bulwark against Trumpism"
