    Was it? I'd be interested in any macro-level stats or analysis you have per country on that, say post-'99 in Britain, although I'm particularly interested in the US for this thread. I mean to say, stories like this are not made up. And the Cato Institute and other right-wing think tanks produce articles like this one from time to time. I'm aware of a Swedish paper which models various factors and concludes that minimum wage doesn't negatively impact the legit economy; I can't quite remember the details.

    Their hysteria is turning into panic, which will last until the elections when it will turn to despair.

    What an embarrassing night for Beto in his home town as Trump came in and owned him.

    Beto's rival rally to Trump with only a few hundred turning up , Trump's rally packed to the rafters with thousands more outside.

    Beto's presidential ambitions end tonight. The latest leftie liberal to fall victim to the Donald.

    You basically have to pretend to be non white to get anywhere as a Democrat.
