Random Thoughts: Minimum Wage, NYPD, and Double Equals

Posted on December 6, 2013 9:52 am

The minimum wage is and always will be zero dollars. When politicians interfere with businesses, more people earn the minimum wage.

So how long until we see the NYPD arrest an innocent bystander they shot for impeding an officer’s bullet?

Double equals is stupid. It should have been equals sign for comparison and something else entirely for assignment.

To update the musical, the von Trapps are now fleeing Obamacare.

Oh, how I enjoy my insipid, partisan humor.

    Your sipid stuff is my jam, Frank.

    I like your perspective but I think they actually have plans for 100% employment by fiat.

    I’ve seen := or : or <- used for assignment. Some even distinguish between initialization and update. But I've been sufficiently conditioned to expect = for assignment. I have seen the enemy and he is me.

    Frank, if you tell a Liberal that “the minimum wage is zero,” their head will explode. Wait… hmmm.

    “==” ≡ “=”

    Perhaps “≡” would have been a better symbol for assignment, retaining it’s mathematical definition of “identically equal.”

    Considering unemployment insurance, welfare, and such minimum wage is well above zero

    I had to look this word up. (And now I’m just a little bit smarter!)
    Insipid: lacking taste or savor : tasteless; lacking in qualities that interest, stimulate , or challenge : dull , flat … .
    The phraseology suggests a lack of self-esteem…
    …or an abundance.
