SORT BY Relevancy
On December 5th fast food workers in 130 cities across America walked out of their jobs demanding a livable wage. Most workers earn minimum or barely above minimum wage with no benefits, while the public subsizides the workers with food stamps, health benefits and other subsidies, while the corporations that own the restaurant chains avoid taxes with elaborate loopholes. But is raising fast food worker wages a good idea in the long run? Tune in or down load to hear a different take on this very timely issue facing our nation.

This Saturday on Critical Discourse, we want to cover 2 pressing issues.
The first, the press conference by Eric Holder, launched a formal investigation into allegations and of civil rights violations, on the part of the Ferguson, Missouri police, in the wake of the Michael Brown shooting.
To say the least, the results should be greatly anticipated and perhaps to many black people, a confirmation and vindication of what many have said for decades, that [predominately white] police forces tend to act heavy-handedly, when it comes to black people, especially black men, which ultimately reverberates into unjust treatment by the larger, criminal justice system.
However, what if the probe does not substantiate such claims? How then, will black people deal with the nagging issues, in which we find ourselves crying out for redress?
Second,, as a smaller part of the minimum wage fight, on Thursday, thousands of fast-food workers across the country went on “strike”, demonstrating and demanding that their wages be increased to $15/hour.
Presuming this was to take place, what will be the impact on food prices? Are their demands, legitimate, or perhaps, part of a larger play by unions, to garner strength, members and money?
And I might ask, is somehow, the illegal immigration lobby interspersed in this?
This Saturday on Critical Discourse, we intend to cover the following:
A continuation on the 100% pay-raise demand from fast-food workers
Barack Obama’s decision not to pursue his vaunted “Comprehensive Immigration Reform” until after the 2014 election
An unusual hate crime in Brooklyn, New York, and why the relative silence?
Dre and Crystal welcomed on Mr. Invisable guest tonight. And even though I "scheduled guest" did not show up we had a blast discussing trending topics such as the shooting in Ottawa, Anderson Cooper's perfect looks and how NOT to get a selfie with him. We discussed Rosie O'Donnell and The View. We chatted about how if they made the minimum wage for fast food workers $15 then we had better get MUCH BETTER SERVICE!! We also heard a 13 year old Kim Kardashian exclaim, quite prophetically, that she was going to be famous someday! We had a great time! Make sure you join us next week!

Remember a few years ago when the Israelis set up another bus company in Judea and Samaria [the "west Bank"] that would make life easier for Arab workers in the West Bank who work for Israel. Those buses would not stop at any Israeli settlement and did not charge a high price like the "pirate" buses. The world called those buses "Palestinian-only" buses. Arabs were allowed in the other buses; but the so-called "Palestinian-only" buses wer emore conveniant for them. The anti-Semitic world said that Israel operated "segregated" and "Apartheid" buses. Now the smear returns when Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon announced that Arab workers would have to return from the Eyal checkpoint, the same checkpoint where they entered Israel to work. Now the world is against alsely accusing Israel of having "segregated and "Apartheid buses, as well as falsely claim that Arabs won't be able to ride Israeli buses. Tune in, as I discuss this repeat of the false charge against Israel coming from the left and the anti-Semitic liberal media and international community.
