Shocking.

Oh no, that's right, it's not.

When business is over taxed, over regulated, or, inundated with Progressive Bullshit Legislation, it will either die in Venezuela or eliminate costs.

The Kansas City Atheist Coalition has nothing to offer on this subject, since, after all, they are all about...well, nothing.

Thank you for your attention and have a nice day.

Why are you people so happy about this?

Oh, that's right, because in your world most fast food workers are black.

When the teachers, the firemen, the auto workers, & the police, etc. want support for higher wages, tell them to go to hell & get a better job.

Workers are either united or they're not, & if they're not then they lose.

Funkhouser you are so right. We all want more blacks unemployed and on the streets because we don't have enough murdering thugs and certainly we want to give more of our tax dollars to those who will run down to the entitlement office before they even consider getting another job. Bilerun perhaps you can enlighten us on how we keep blacks in high school and how we get them to actually do something in trade schools and colleges so they can keep a real job instead of guarding their burgers and whining their lives away.Surely there is a secret formula for getting productivity out of black folks.

You heard it here first:

Watch Sly and the gang try to tax each Kiosk as if they were people.

Since kiosks are machines and fast- Hiw do you tax them?

This will happen... A good used crystal ball will agree.

Anonymous said...

The government can tax a kiosk same as any other piece of property. How is that difficult to understand?

I agree w 12:05. If the prevailing wage is $8 an hour- then city taxes would equal how many hours the robot works as if it were a human.

Totally agree KC will do this starting soon- not retroactive.

If you are in fast food go find A better opportunity today get out they don't care about you Example when food prices rise or there rent goes up to $10,000.00 A month they raise prices but when you want raise they'll complain and say we can't The owners would not work for less than $50,000.00 A year

The owners are the ones with all the risk. Why would they not want to make money? They sure as hell don't risk their ass in this town because KC has been so good to them.

IF THEY CAN'T AFFORD TO PAY A LIVING WAGE THEN THEY SHOULD NOT BE IN BUSINESS IT TAKES THE SAME ENERGY TO MAKE $90.00 AN HOUR AS IT DOES TO MAKE $9.00 I guess you haven't attended my seminar
