    Wendy's to have ordering kiosks in 1000 stores by the end of this year.

    Last year, the kiosks were coming. It didn't take them long to get here.

    Wendy's plans to install self-ordering kiosks in 1,000 of its stores — about 16 percent of its locations — by the end of the year.

    The Dublin-based burger giant started offering kiosks last year, and demand for the technology has been high from both customers and franchise owners.

    Always remember all you liberal Democrats out there, the REAL minimum wage is $0, not $15 an hour or whatever it is you FEEL it should be.

    Companies added jobs at a blistering pace in February, with a notable shift away from the service-sector positions that have dominated hiring for years, according to a report Wednesday.

    Employment in the private sector surged by 298,000 for the month, with goods producers adding 106,000, ADP and Moody's Analytics said. Construction jobs swelled by 66,000 and manufacturing added 32,000.

    The total shattered market expectations of 190,000, according to economists surveyed by ADP. The blockbuster report also solidified market expectations for the Fed to hike interest rates next week. Probability for an increase jumped to 91 percent after the release, according to the CME.

    Not to mention the rollbacks in the EPA and climate change.

    So genius, or should I say Trollius, show us other schools without the recent doubling of the minimum wage where such layoffs occurred? Duh, salaries of coaches and staff are consistent nationwide.

    Our resident financial planning genius, senior fiscal budget advisor and lead moron never responded. Wonder why?

    Re: Economic News/Discussion

    Same Party...

    Same Approach...

    Same Result.........


    Another American City Destroyed by the Democrats


    The tragic story of Minneapolis.

    “American politics is dominated by an enduring myth,” writes author Peter Collier—the myth “that Democrats are the party of the common man, the voiceless, the powerless, the poor. That if you care about what happens to the least among us, you will cast your vote in the Democratic column.”


    But as Collier also points out, the vast majority of America's voiceless, powerless, and impoverished people are concentrated in cities that have been run exclusively by Democrats for decades—even generations—without interruption. These are cities where stratospheric rates of crime, poverty, unemployment, out-of-wedlock births, homes without fathers and failed school systems have become a way of life—along with oppressive and confiscatory taxes whose only discernible achievement is to keep the leaky ship of city government afloat for as long as possible before it is inevitably capsized by economic and social calamity.




    Minneapolis, Minnesota is perhaps the least likely case in point. Camouflaged by the state as a whole, a synonym for plainspoken stability, it is just one of the many American cities that were once thriving centers of industry, prosperity and optimism—until Democrats took them over. Since 1978, Minneapolis has been governed exclusively by mayors from the Democratic Farmer Labor Party (DFLP)—the state affiliate of the Democratic Party.

Prior to this long era of Democratic dominance, Minneapolis' poverty rate was consistently lower than the national average. Throughout the 1980s, when the trickle down of the Reagan economic boom had a positive effect on cities nationwide, Minneapolis shared in these good times, adding some 3,000 new jobs to its downtown area each year from 1981-87. As of 1983, only 8% of the city's metropolitan-area population lived below the poverty level, as compared to approximately 15% of the national population.




    . . .


    Like so many other major American cities, Minneapolis offers melancholy testimony for the bankruptcy of Democratic Party urban policies. Under the guise of compassion, Democrats have exploited the residents of these cities as a means to ever-more-entrenched political power, using them as a captive electoral bloc every national election while allowing their life prospects to continue to erode.


    Like so many other Democrat-run cities, Minneapolis is the urban equivalent of a captive nation, its residents watching their civic life decline while the cynics who control their prospects continue to make their city a mad laboratory for failed polices and stolen dreams.

    . . .





    Keep rowing (D) biyatches!

    “We've borrowed more money under Barack Obama than we borrowed from George Washington through George W. Bush,” asserted Stephen Moore, an economic adviser to Donald Trump, during a mid-October debate in the presidential race.

    Spending bill language omits border wall funding, sanctuary cities crackdown

    US budget: Funding deal reached to avert shutdown

    http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-39767844

    I know it's just a so-called stop gap budget good until the end of September but it's still a piece off crap. It looks like a George Bush/John Boehner budget. No funding for border wall or deportation. It funds Planned Parenthood and sanctuary cities aren't defunded...

    The democrats got most of what they wanted the republicans got to little... It sets a bad precedence... once you start giving in you never stop giving in.

    I would veto that spending bill ... Who cares if the federal government shuts down all the essential programs will still be funded. It's nothing but the democrats playing Mexican Sweat poker... Call em...
