One Picture Exposes HUGE Issue With Seattle's $15 minimum wage



“Contrary to what supporters claim, increasing the minimum wage does not create jobs and stimulate the economy,” wrote Erin Shannon, the center’s small business analyst. “The higher wages are not free money.  The increased cost must either be absorbed by the employer, which is impossible for many who already operate on shoe-string profit margins, or it must be passed on to workers, in the form of reduced hours and benefits, and consumers, in the form of higher prices.  Either way, someone pays.”

The Fantasy That ObamaCare 'Is Working' - Forbes

The Fantasy That ObamaCare 'Is Working' - Forbes



Sometimes it seems President Obama lives in a parallel universe where facts are floating around to be plucked out of suspended animation. Never more so than on the effects of the Affordable Care Act.
So let’s see whether anything he says on the new law, including that it “is working,” comports with the facts:

● No “adverse effect on people who already had health insurance.”
In 2013, as Obamacare’s policies were phasing in, nearly 5 million policyholders across 31 states and the District of Columbia were notified that their current coverage was being discontinued. This doesn’t include nearly 20 states that weren’t tracking these numbers so the total could have been several million more. In California alone, 1.1 million policies were canceled.
In March, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) estimated that Obamacare will result in a total of 1 million fewer people enrolled in employment-based coverage in 2015, increasing to 8 million fewer enrolled in employment-based covered by 2018. That’s a lot of people who haven’t been able to keep the health insurance that they like.
● “The overwhelming majority of people are satisfied” with the new law.
Real Clear Politics has reviewed the major polling results on ObamaCare over the last two months. It finds that the average result is that 43% of Americans support the law and 53% oppose it. A May Gallup poll found more than twice as many respondents (24%) say the law has hurt their families than say it has helped them (10%). Most say it has made no difference. This sounds a lot more like dissatisfaction with the new law.
● “Health care inflation overall has continued to be at some of the lowest levels in 50 years.”
Oh really. The costs to Americans for health insurance in the new ObamaCare era are soaring across the country. The latest numbers for premium increases show the following dismal news for families. In California, approved rate increases going into effect this year are running up an average of about 10%, or five times the rate of inflation (which actually turned negative in the most recent 12 months). In Florida, 33 of 36 approved rate hikes were greater than 10%.
Next year might be even worse. In Ohio, the average rate increase request for 2016 is 17.8% as of June 9, 2015. In Virginia, the AETNA Life Insurance Company small group plan proposed an increase of 59.71%. In Texas, more than half of the rate hike request are greater than 20%. In Illinois, the popular Blue Cross Blue Shield Preferred Individual plan wants a 38% rate hike. Numerous other plans costs will rise by 50%.
● “We haven’t had a lot of conversation about the horrors of Obamacare because none of them have come to pass.”
President Obama must not listen to young people. An analysis by my colleaguesEd Haislmaier and Drew Gonshorowski at The Heritage Foundation finds that removing ObamaCare regulations for those in their early 20s would lower health insurance by 44%. Much of this cost differential stems directly from the arbitrary ObamaCare mandate that age related variations in health care premiums not exceed a ration of 3:1. That part of the law alone increased premiums for young adults by one-third. The typical 21 year old would save about $1,100 in premiums by jettisoning the regulations.
● “The costs have come in substantially lower than even our estimates about how much it would cost.”
Well let’s look at the government’s costs for health care. The CBO’s budget estimates of ObamaCare’s net costs from 2015-2019 have decreased by 29% since the March 2015 projections. However, the latest statistics from the federal government show that ObamaCare costs for the Medicaid expansion and the taxpayer subsidized exchanges will rise from about $35 billion last year, to $77 billion this fiscal year, and to an expected $116 billion in 2016. So in three years ObamaCare outlays will have tripled. Only in Washington would this be considered controlling costs.
The future of the ObamaCare law hangs by a thread, based both on the upcoming Supreme Court decision regarding the constitutionality of subsidies provided for coverage purchased on federally established exchanges. If these exchange subsidies are invalidated, Republicans need to prove to voters they can provide much better quality of care, with much more choices, and to more Americans, and in a way that doesn’t bankrupt the country. Given the fiasco of Obamacare, that shouldn’t be hard.

A Q&A With the Porn Stars Who Hope to Have Sex in Space | Motherboard

A Q&A With the Porn Stars Who Hope to Have Sex in Space | Motherboard



There is underwater porn and there is aerially-shot porn and there is porn on a bus and porn on planes and porn on trains. But, thus far, there has been no porn in space. Pornhub, the superpopular porn purveyor, has just hatched a plan to film the first-ever porn in space sometime next year.
The Los Angeles-based company, which also operates sites such as YouPorn and RedTube, launched a crowdfunding campaign on IndieGoGo Wednesday seeking $3.4 million to send porn stars Eva Lovia and Johnny Sins to space to film the first-ever space porn.

"Does a man have to fight all his life only in death to take flight to the skies?/Warmongers vie to take my throne, no respect is ever shown."
The lyrics from the song "Massacre of the Saxons" could easily be mistaken for something by Iron Maiden, yet they came from the mouth of the then-91-year old British actor Christopher Lee, who died from respiratory problems and heart failure today at the age of 93.

How to Build Muscle: Two-A-Day Training | Muscle & Fitness



If you don’t like being in the gym, this program isn’t for you. On the other hand, if you’re a true M&Fer, you can’t wait to get back in there after every session. Sometimes you even wish you could go back sooner. If this is your attitude, or you’re a college student with an open class schedule or a guy who’s currently between jobs and must vent his frustrations by lifting as much heavy iron as often as possible, two-a-days are exactly what you need.
