A famed coffee shop in Union Square is closing partly due to the increased minimum wage. It’s also because of the high rents, but the minimum wage is a problem because the owner has a lot of employees – about 150. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the “normal [Socialist] working girl”, is sad that they’re closing their doors. She made a point of saying so on Twitter. She worked there for a while.

There is one problem with her tweet, she supports the increased minimum wage and many other ideas that damage small businesses like this bar.

After holding up under mockery for declaring Sunday that a walk in a national park was an example of democratic socialism, Ocasio-Cortez lamented Monday the closing of the shop, Fox News reported.

“The restaurant I used to work at is closing its doors. I swung by today to say hi one last time, and kid around with friends like old times,” the congressional candidate reminisced on Twitter. “I’m a normal, working person who chose to run for office, because I believe we can have a better future.”

The Coffee Shop in Union Square became especially famous for regularly appearing on HBO’s “Sex and the City”.

It wasn’t the greedy Capitalists who shut it down, it was her people.

This is the entire interview of the sorry economics major promoting higher minimum wages if you can stand the idiocy.

Welcome from Long Island, New York!

We want to present the news that the mainstream tends to ignore from a right-of-center perspective.

I’m an ex-liberal and am amazed at all I didn’t know when I was a liberal, like: the Constitution isn’t a “living” document; giving out endless welfare checks is a bad idea; pity for prisoners is better spent on the victims of their crimes; guns aren’t evil but people are; free speech matters more than I knew which is why PC needs to be obliterated ASAP; women can be evil too; big government doesn’t do a good job.

Kumbaya, We Are the World, It Takes a Village, and anything even remotely resembling those concepts are now out of my head unless I’m using them to make fun of somebody; war is necessary when under attack; socialism and communism have absolutely no redeeming qualities as systems of government; Carter wasn’t a good president and Reagan was, Green should go back to being a color.

Independent blogs like this one provide an opportunity for common folk to battle the corrupted mainstream media in a search for truth. We are searching, always searching…

We research and are as factual as possible and provide links to sources though commentary is commentary. If we make a mistake, we correct it.

I have published educational articles, short stories for children and was a copy editor for This Week Magazine. I have a B.A. in English Literature and masters degrees in Education, Secondary Education and Administration. For 33 years, I worked in education as a teacher of English and later, Special Education, and spent years as an elementary principal, secondary principal and central office administrator.

The name Sara Noble is a nom de plume. There are a few reasons for the nom de plume and included in those is the fact that many of my family members are liberals and don’t want their last name out there on a center-right blog. I started out with the pseudonym and just kept it. It’s a family name.

Pity me, I’m surrounded by liberals and I live in New York.
