i recall that he's brought up before he's some kind of software developer who doesn't make much more than this and resents that the underclasses are now on equal footing with him since their jobs "don't warrant a living wage", unlike his.

IIRC I wrote that I make "several digits more" which is a vague way of saying a lot more than $15. I'm not going to post my annual salary on the public video game news site. I'm sure you understand.

Some customers will never grasp the bigger picture.

Since you appear adamant about instigating another foul-mouthed conflict I'll drop this headline in your lap and let you ponder the potential ramifications; aka the bigger picture.
You're in full agreement with the higher minimum wage, get over yourself.

Posting a link to a news article doesn't change my view. Quit making conclusions on my behalf.

37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

41 “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. 42 For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, 43 I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.’

44 “They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’

45 “He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’

46 “Then they will go away to eternal punishment

I know precisely what those passages mean and they have nothing to do with what you're implying. If you were a bible study you'd know this.

@Bodolza - I'm not saying it's bad or good. I'm simply reporting that some restaurants, at least one where I live, are responding to the new law.

As of 9AM PST, it's official. California's minimum wage is now $15 per hour (will be phased in by 2022); signed into law by Governor Brown. Businesses are already looking for ways to offset the cost. A really awesome Steak Cheese Restaurant near my house posted a notice saying due to the wage increase they would be dropping their 25% discount cards down to 10% effective immediately.

How is this any different than what Microsoft or Apple does, or what stores do when you sign up for their Rewards card? Privacy is a fairy tale. It's doesn't exist anymore.

So I bought one of those small 6 packs of Ensure. Thought maybe getting some vitamins in shake form would be good for me. Well I drank one tonight. I feel like I'm going to die. Don't buy Ensure! It's evil!

Demoniaca's creator Fabio Consorti writes regarding his Kickstarter efforts, "if Kickstarter fails, I will relaunch a new campaign." W.C. Fields said it best: "If at first you don't succeed, try, try again. Then quit. There's no use in being a damn fool about it." I think there's a lot of people in the video game industry who could benefit from those words.

They're running a kickstarter to fund a new April Fool's joke right now. The joke should be finished approximately May, 2019. Date may shift, though.

It's going to most epic joke ever in the history of joke sims!

That's a really nice passage!

Did you get a chance to read the last few passages of Ecclesiastes? They nicely sum up everything.

(Ecclesiastes 12:8-14)

8 "The greatest futility!" says the congregator. "Everything is futile."

9 Not only had the congregator become wise but he continually taught the people what he knew, and he pondered and made a thorough search in order to compile many proverbs. 10 The congregator sought to find delightful words and to record accurate words of truth.

11 The words of the wise are like oxgoads, and their collected sayings are like firmly embedded nails; they have been given from one shepherd. 12 As for anything besides these, my son, be warned: To the making of many books there is no end, and much devotion to them is wearisome to the flesh.

13 The conclusion of the matter, everything having been heard, is: Fear the true God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole obligation of man. 14 For the true God will judge every deed, including every hidden thing, as to whether it is good or bad.


Helps me evaluate how I live my life. Am I living a selfish life or am I living my life in the pursuit of doing good to others and helping to share bible truths?

Thanks for share BobBob.
