when he loses his job because of the minimum wage increase

he will tell him Congress needs to increase unemployment benefits

do I have this right?

8 This must be newfangled twitter nonsense where it seems I am reading something that obviously can't be because of some sort of arcane formatting. It almost sounds like Obama responded to a fry cook being cut to part time due to increased costs by telling him to ask for Congress to increase costs more so he gets fired.

Certainly no rational person could be such a tone-deaf imbecile. Certainly my take is due to misunderstanding Twitter formatting.

Or maybe Obama's just a brain dead son of a communist whore who can't think as well as a stunned hamster.

9 Tres stupid is our preznit. I saw a recent video of him yammering off teleprompter and he just keeps repeating phrases and blaming republicans and bringing up his magic pen. He has...nothing. Yet Bill O'Reilly gives him a lame platform to yuk it up and point fingers, when anyone knows all a malignant narcissist desires is attention.

14 Saw some Black History Month advert.
There's almost a billion black people in the world.
Less than 5% of them are American.

A Black History that consists mostly of Frederick Douglas, MLK, Malcolm X, Jackie Robinson, Michael Jordan, LeBron, Oprah, and Obama seems a bit narrow.

Kinda like a Chinese History Month that only mentioned Michael Chang and Jeremy Lin. Mao? Never heard of him.

44 Wait, I'm sorry, I am certain that you are not correct about this whole increasing the minimum wage will cause more unemployment thingy. The leftists on facebook have assured me that these greedy businesses can easily afford to pay the downtrodden workers a living wage and not have to cut out even one single job. These folks insist that if I believe in silly arguments that involve math and economics....... then I am a big meanie who hates everyone and wants poor people to starve. I am sure none of us here feel that way, so by lefty logic, we must agree that they are right. We don't want to be a bunch of meany math witch, poor people murderers, do we?

48 Fuck Obama and his exchanges. And fuck any GOP who doesn't want to get rid of this piece of shit law. My cancelled insurance company just sent me a information and benefits packet due to my non requested request to "transition" to a new plan. Is this even legal?

The new benefits I get are covered doctor's visits for routine checkups and . . . that's it. For a deductible that is 5,000$ and the low low price of 525$ a month. Fuck this.

54 Fry cook asks Obama about getting cut back to part time b/c of Obamacare, Obama tells him Congress needs to pass a minimum wage increase

So, in order to mitigate the consequences of government intervention, the Asshole in Chief proposes yet another government intervention.

Because he's a) quite literally stupid, b) a liar, c) a full of sh*t Fascist, or d) all of the above.

62 Two Irish farmers bought a truckload of watermelons, paying one dollar each for them.

Then they drove to the market and sold all of the melons for the same price they'd paid for them.

After counting their money at the end of the day they realized that they'd ended up with no more money than they'd started with.

"See!" said one. "I told you we should have gotten a bigger truck!"

The End.

63 Jugears' response indicates one or more of the following:

He doesn't understand the concept of unintended consequences.

There is no limit to the destructive "help" offered by big government bandaids

The people that he's talking to use the same uniformly superficial bromides instead of logical assertions in response to complex problems that he does.

He poses as an omnipotent oracle, while he in fact wouldn't know where to shop for a fucking clue.

This Obama statement demonstrates the falsity of the cliched Progressive argument thatConservative policies"leave the middleclass and poorto struggle on their own," the assumption being Progressive policies are designed to ensure safety nets or wide-ranging government support.
Clearly this fry cook is forced to struggle on his own--not due to Conservativeprinciples of self-reliance--but due to his mistaken belief the government was going to take care of him.
You've got a kid who not only can't afford Obamacare premiums, but who also is cut to part-time hours. If and when he minimum wage is hiked, he then loses hid fry-cook job where he is at least trying to be responsible.
What's he gonna do? Who knows--there are a lot of service industry jobs out there. Unfortunately, not everyone can be in this industry. We need makers.Will this kid succeeed? I dunno, but I can tell you thisrogressive policies like Obamacare, food stamps, quantative easing, and pushes for minimum wages and illegal immigration amnesty are vastly outstripping the American capacity to assimilate their impacts to the middle class.
