Overnight Open Thread (24 Feb 2017)

Oh just stop it with this stupid SJW BS. New Han Solo 'Star Wars' prequel already under fire as 'too white'. Most people only care if it'll be good/entertaining. I don't go to movies based on the race/sex of those involved.


Economics 101

Gee, didn't see this coming. With sales depressed by soda tax, Philly grocers look to cut jobs as Mayor blames 'greedy' soda industry.

"I didn't think it was possible for the soda industry to be any greedier," Kenney said in an emailed statement to Philly.com reporter Julia Terruso. "They are so committed to stopping this tax from spreading to other cities, that they are not only passing the tax they should be paying onto their customer, they are actually willing to threaten working men and women's jobs rather than marginally reduce their seven figure bonuses."

Dear God, this guy is gonna be floored when he finds out all the other companies that pass on taxes to their customers. Philly, you elected an economic genius there. Enjoy.

Not be outdone by Philly, check out what Seattle's mayor is proposing. Mayor Ed Murray proposes $55 million a year property-tax levy to fight homelessness. Genius. Make it more expensive to own a home to combat homelessness which will probably result in more homelessness.

Good Question

Why is Democratic Governor outraged that Trump ceded power to the states? 'Cuz he won't be able to shrug his shoulders and blame DC when things don't go well.
