Minimum wage hike hits San Fran comic shop: ‘I voted for that, and I didn’t realize it would affect you’
Regular readers of this blog know that on any given day they might get a post on minimum wage or they might read a review of Dan Slott’s run on The Amazing Spider-Man. Today is a special occasion for yours truly because our friends in San Francisco have provided me with a chance to touch on the comic book industry and minimum wage laws at the same time!
National Review somehow managed to get the owners of Comix Experience to agree to an interview for its piece “When Minimum-Wage Hikes Hit a San Francisco Comic-Book Store.” Nothing says it better about progressive public policies than the first sentence:
I’m hearing from a lot of customers, ‘I voted for that, and I didn’t realize it would affect you.’”
So says Brian Hibbs, owner and operator of Comix Experience, an iconic comic-book and graphic-novel shop on San Francisco’s Divisadero Street, of…

It’s not often that I disagree with the folks who put together the Wall Street Journal editorial page. For instance, they just published a great editorial on that cesspool of cronyism and corruption that is otherwise known as the Export-Import Bank.
Isn’t it great that the voice of capitalism actually supports genuine free markets!
That being said, a recent editorial rubs me the wrong way.
It’s about the presumably quixotic presidential campaign of Senator Bernie Sanders. These excerpts will give you a flavor of what the WSJ wrote.
Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, an avowed independent Socialist, has decided to run for the Democratic presidential nomination… He thinks the American economy is fundamentally unfair, and that government must tax and spend even more heavily… He thinks Social Security should increase benefits, no matter that it is heading toward insolvency. Higher taxes can make up the difference. …He wants single-payer…

This should be shared with as many people as possible!
Lorna Byrne’s 2008 book ‘Angels in My Hair’ is a bestseller. Her memoir covers the trials and tribulations she experienced while growing up with the ability to see angels — but not talk about it with anyone. Her own family thought she had mental problems. She was warned that there was a possibility they would send her to a mental institution. She was given foreknowledge of painful events that would happen later in life (e.g., the early death of her husband), but was sworn to secrecy. Finally, at a much later stage in her life, she was told to write her book so that people would know one simple message: We are never alone.
Ms. Byrne’s book has plenty of detractors — atheists, agnostics, Christians of various denominations, and individuals from other religious faiths. That is understandable, given the nature of her claims. As a Catholic, I certainly have qualms…

Since there is a rumor that a Friday the 13th game is in the works I have decided to revisit and review the 1989 survival horror game published by LJN and developed by the developer Atlus for the Nintendo Entertainment System.
This game can be found on ebay for $5, but if you look hard you can find it at a garage scale for as low as $1.
With that said before you spend your money and time finding this game you may want to watch the review first.
God of War Chains of Olympus is not a new game and yet people are still purchasing it today. The game is available in bundles with other games and you can purchase it digitally. I reviewed this game since it is almost certain we will see a new God of War game in the future for the PS4 and maybe you still have never tried a game in the series. This game was originally on the PSP. I have all of the games in the series and I plan to review every one of them. God of War was something special and I can say with confidence that this installment does not disappoint.
If you enjoy stories based on Greek mythology (or loosely based) this may be worth checking out. This is a brutal combat game with fast paced action, quick time events and just when the combat may be too much the game throws in mind teasing puzzles!
If you still have not tried this series watch the review and it may help you to make a decision.

Have you ever experienced lag and stuttering when playing a game online? Have you been sent into a rage knowing that you should have won a gunfight in Call of Duty? If you have these issues the Lagbuster may be for you. The Lagbuster is expensive at $219.99 but if you find that you have a high internet bill due to poor data packet management you may be able to reduce your internet package and the unit will pay for itself. A high end router can do some great data packet management but it cannot do some other things that this unit provides. I have tested this unit for hundreds of hours (recording game play and counting hit markers and other indicators) with many games and in my video review I will reveal what I think of this product.
