Righteously Refudiating Reality

Throwback Thursday seems to be a thing. I guess the world revolves around alliteration.

In the spirit of throwing back, here’s a friendly little discussion that took place in the crisp Autumn of the 2012 presidential debates. Just a wonderful example how the Conservative mind completely and enthusiastically eschews reality in favor of... of... who the fuck knows what.

"Government is the Problem"

This was going to be an addition to one of my "Facebook Case Files" entries, but I started writing and didn't stop until it became a full post unto itself.

Return of the Minimum Wage Hand-Out

Let’s start off the new year with a little push for upward mobility. Yeah, minimum wage increase was a topic already discussed a month ago, but right-wing cognitive dissonance is just so much fun to exploit for blog material. Republicans believe what they’re told to believe and no amount of fucking facts, historically preceded or otherwise, will ever, ever sway the opinions that were given to them by Frank Luntz.

The discussion in Minumum Wage Hand-Out happened a few months before I posted it on this blog and took place when a big protest for a minimum wage increase was scheduled. The day I posted it, another protest (that I was unaware of) also took place. I’m sure those protests were what prompted these regurgitated complaints against minimum wage workers. Because as we all know, tax subsidies for billion-dollar profit corporations and CEO’s paying themselves 400X the average worker aren’t the problem. It’s paying those workers a living wage.

Goddamn moochers.
