“My Employer Makes More Off My Labor Than I Do”

by lewwaters

It seems that at just about any “progressive” protest rally, union unrest or occupy tantrums, it doesn’t take long before someone either in the crowd or on a speakers platform will state words to the effect of, “my employer make more off my labor than I do,” trying to build sympathy that they don’t receive proper wages for whatever their labor may be and whip up emotions to support demands of more.

In those crowds of envious and jealous malcontents, it is just what many desire to hear and speakers know it all too well. In the case of unions, demands follow for even more with no realization that any increases in business costs to employers must be passed along to consumers in order for their employer to remain in business and afford to pay them what they demand.

In a vicious circle, even those making the demand end up with less value for their dollar as consumer prices continue to climb.

Invariably, comparisons will be made that the laborer works hard, an undeniable fact and that while they may earn a decent wage, the employer is “raking in the dough” and enjoying large profits.

Some even claim that they end up investing in the “tools of the trade.” Mechanics, machinists, mill workers and more may end up owning over $30,000 worth of tools needed to perform their jobs and believe that to be a major investment, even though spread out over 30 or 40 years.

Have I Ever Been In Her Shoes?

by lewwaters

Far left Moveon.org asks, “Have you ever been in her shoes? Watch:”

I’m not a huge fan of Mitt Romney, so this is not in support of or an endorsement, but yes, as a matter of fact I have been in her shoes. After 20 years at a Chrysler dealer and at age 61, I found myself unemployed in an area with 15% unemployment when the White House helped compile of a list of 789 Chrysler dealers to have their franchises yanked, including some very profitable ones.

Should I feel pleased this young lady feels so good about saving her ass on the backs of taxpayers while hundreds of thousands of the rest of us were thrown out of work?

Maybe she needs to look at the real world.

Occubride to Wed Seattle Building

by lewwaters

We don’t call them the looney left for no reason 😉

From reports by MyNorthwest.com and KOMO News

Babylonia Aivaz who boasts of being arrested weeks ago as one of the occupiers who seized the building, now proclaims her love of the building by announcing her plans to marry it. She states, “I’m doing this to show the building how much I love it, how much I love community space and how much I love this neighborhood. And I want to stop it from gentrification,” after trying for a stretch equating her marriage to the building to the Citizens United Supreme Court decision where corporations were equated to people.

Not to Babylonia, corporations are comprised of people. Buildings are comprised of brick, mortar, wood, steel and other materials.

As the state is focused on same sex marriage in the legislature, Babylonia states she will have an ordained minister officiating at her “Gay Wedding.”

Wedding March for Babylonia

UPDATE: Photos of the “Gay Wedding” here. The “Bride” declared this as a “Gay Wedding” based her also declaring the warehouse to be a woman.

The Original “Occu-Mom Places 4 Year-Old Daughter on Train Tracks”

by lewwaters

Everybody else is posting my video, so I may as well too. 😉

I included it and made mention of it in my older post “David the Occupier” Tries to Justify Lost Wages to Middle Class Workers

Since cutting out the segment on the “Occu-Mom” and originally posting it to Victoria Taft’s blog, it has been embedded on Weazel Zippers, who most link back too, the Blaze, Fox Nation, Hot Air, FreeRepublic and I even found it embedded in the UK.

Yesterday, Dec. 14, 2011 it hit 71,000 views alone and currently has well over 400 comments, 99% appalled that this woman sat her 4 year-old daughter on train tracks and expressing her “faith in humanity” that a train would not run them down.

A few try to deflect away from her inadequate mothering skills by claiming it is “out of context (typical),” “edited,” “never happened,” and a few others claim it was all okay since they did not see a photo of the child on the tracks.

“David the Occupier” Tries to Justify Lost Wages to Middle Class Workers

by lewwaters

David the Occupier, December 12, 2011 1pm  [From Victoria Taft, KPAM 860]

It comes as no surprise that this group of malcontents, calling themselves “occupiers” but who in reality are nothing more than anarchists foolishly pushing for the country to become communist, justify their every action, no matter how much they hurt everyday workers.

Since they decided they have some “right” to take over and hold public parks, denying the rest of us our right to enjoy the parks, they have ratcheted up their discontent as they seek more notoriety, regardless of any destruction they may cause.

Just today, Monday December 12, 2011 we see them up and down the West Coast interfering with interstate commerce, shutting down ports, blocking middle class truckers from doing their jobs and earning a days wages. What they think they are accomplishing escapes me.

They claim the support of rank and file workers, but the online poll offered by KGW News shows overwhelmingly that they have little support among the middle class. I imagine the thousands of people who lost wages today due to their ongoing tantrum aren’t too happy about that.

One such protester, a young mother identified only as “Lotus” boasts of having her 4-year old daughter on the train tracks! (about the 1:15 mark)
