    The stupidity of the Democrat Party is astounding. From the incompetent loon Bernie Sanders to the semi-literate lunkhead Steve Sweeney, they are hell bent on destroying the middle class with these unworkable mandates that will eliminate the entry level positions that introduced generations of Americans to the beauty of working for a living.

My heart breaks for teens in the future that will not have the same opportunities we once did.
