Minimum Wage Hurts Immigrants

Liberals are mainly hostile to the native population in the USA and Canada, but at least they want to help immigrants, right?

Wrong.

The Left imports immigrants because they tend to rely on government wealth redistribution and vote accordingly. In the long run, there would be no point if the immigrants were not likely to remain poor and dependent. That’s why current policy brings in such vast numbers of unskilled, largely unassimilable foreigners from the Third World. It is also one reason progressives are so aggressive about jacking up the minimum wage:

A Momma From the Hood Thanks Her Children’s True Father

It’s not as if all welfare mommas are ingrates. This woman actually thanks the true father of her children:

So long as this gratitude translates into votes, current welfare policy makes sense for Democrats, even if it does turn the entire nation into a ghetto.

Study Says It Makes Economic Sense to Pay Africans Not to Cut Down Trees

An article in Nature demonstrates why liberals must under no circumstances be trusted with other people’s money:

A two-year project that paid a total of US$20,000 to 180 people in 60 Ugandan villages not to cut down trees on their land was worth the money, researchers say. By delaying carbon dioxide emissions, the project’s benefits to society were more than double its costs.

Since the economic benefits of “delaying carbon dioxide emissions” bear no relation whatsoever to objective reality, it would be child’s play to prove that paying Africans $1 million per minute not to cut down trees is a bargain. The amount of global warming that is prevented by an African not cutting down a tree is directly correlated to the number of angels that can dance on the head of a pin.

Over the past two decades, individual countries have authorized billions of dollars in cash payments to preserve trees. In 2008, the United Nations launched the REDD+ (Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation) programme, which permits countries to offset their emissions by paying people in other nations to halt deforestation.

The federal government extracts money from your paycheck and gives it to the United Nations, which in turn gives it to Africans in return for promising not to cut down trees, so as to save the planet from an imaginary crisis.

Now that a scientific study has proven that this makes economic sense, we can expect the payments to be expanded. Maybe it will save us from global warming if we pay Africans not to flatulate.

A Word of Thanks From a Welfare Recipient

This Brooklyn mother of three demonstrates where the welfare state is directing your tax dollar. Sorry about the language:

When absolute equality is finally achieved, this is the level to which liberal social engineering will have reduced the entire human race. If that isn’t the objective of the welfare state, it may as well be.

Professor Wants to Combat Merit by Basing Admissions on Lottery

The concept of merit is racist. It will not permit equality. In utopia, it will be eradicated. This is already underway in academia:

To “solve the problem of meritocracy,” one professor argues that elite universities should use an “admissions lottery” to select which students they accept.

Joseph Soares, who teaches in the department of Sociology at Wake Forest University, advanced the claim in an article for the Journal of Ethnic and Racial Studies, in which he argues that college entrance exams like the SAT and ACT “are predictively weak and biased, stigmatizing minorities as underperformers” and should therefore be disregarded.

Soares seems to suspect that certain minorities suffer not from “discrimination” but rather from an inability to compete with better qualified racial groups.

Soares endorses a proposal to “blow up meritocracy with an admissions lottery” advanced by Dr. Natasha Marikoo in 2016.

If this catches on, the tactic might also be used to blow up the income inequality that liberals are always demagoguing about. Instead of receiving a salary commensurate with their effort, skill, creativity, usefulness, et cetera, everyone will enter a salary lottery, and be compensated by blind luck. This would be consistent with liberal ideology, which holds that no one earns anything.

Pet-Sitting Is Illegal in New York City

Wherever there is a need, the free market steps in to fill it — except in New York, where senselessly micromanaging authoritarians won’t even allow pet-sitting:

Health Department rules ban anyone from taking money to care for an animal outside a licensed kennel — and the department has warned a popular pet-sitting app that its users are breaking the law. …

[Chad] Bacon, a former zookeeper and wildlife researcher, signed up for the app to help make ends meet while he was between jobs, but did enough business that he now makes his living from it full-time.

Congrats, bureaucrats. You’ve thrown him out of work. With luck, maybe you can get him on the welfare roll.

The health code bans boarding, feeding and grooming animals for a fee without a kennel license — and says those licenses can’t be issued for private homes. … Fines start at $1,000.

Paying a teenager to feed your cats while you are on vacation is a crime in New York, where people used to come from around the world for the opportunities afforded by economic freedom. They still come from around the world, but for different reasons now.

When Big Government makes it easier to collect welfare than to earn money by meeting a need, society has a problem.

NPR Tries to Dissuade Us From Reproducing

The malevolence that drives moonbattery finds its purest form in the environmentalist movement, which is openly hostile to humanity. Without children, the species has no future. NPR lists not having them as the #1 way to demonstrate our virtue by helping to save the planet from the imaginary global warming crisis:

A recent study from Lund University in Sweden shows that the biggest way to reduce climate change is to have fewer children.

You have to pause for a moment before the true evil of this sinks in. In their nihilistic, godless religion, producing a human life is a sin. By extension, ending a human life — any human life — must be virtuous. Not even communism could be more fundamentally wicked.

Needless to say, the rest of the world will keep on reproducing, even if liberals are able to dissuade Americans and Europeans from doing so. The vacuum created by our falling birth rate will be filled by cultures much less concerned about the environment.

But the issue is never the issue; environmental extremism was never about the environment.

Bill Nye Says He Wants Global Warming Skeptics to Die

Oprah Winfrey infamously proclaimed that she wants those who hold views she regards as “racist” to die:

“There are still generations of people, older people, who were born and bred and marinated in it — in that prejudice and racism [i.e., political incorrectness] — and they just have to die!”

Pseudo-scientific entertainer Bill Nye, who apparently passes as an intellectual among liberals, feels the same way about those who won’t go along with the global warming hoax. He tells the La-La Land Times:

It just sounds like people [who are not afraid of global warming] are scared. It just sounds like people are afraid. And the people who are afraid in general — with due respect, and I am now one of them — are older. Climate change deniers, by way of example, are older. It’s generational. So we’re just going to have to wait for those people to “age out,” as they say. “Age out” is a euphemism for “die.” But it’ll happen, I guarantee you — that’ll happen.

Previously, Nye called for global warming skeptics to be thrown in prison. Despite his harmless dork persona, he is one malevolent moonbat.

A whole generation is growing up with liberal climate dogma rammed down its throat day and night. Nye must take special solace in this quote from a fellow progressive:

When an opponent declares, “I will not come over to your side,” I calmly say, “Your child belongs to us already…What are you? You will pass on. Your descendants, however, now stand in the new camp. In a short time they will know nothing else but this new community.”

Nye made his name by passing off leftist ideology as science on a kiddie show.
