Actually, leftist voters were told that, by legalizing pot, the state would enjoy a $33 million (not $40 million) tax revenue windfall. Unfortunately, for those useful idiots, the tax returns have come back and, much like most governmental promises, IT DID NOT REACH THE $33 MILLION MARK.
It actually was SHORT $21.5 million of the “estimated” $33 million. Meaning that it only generated less 35% of what it should have. Why? Simple: people are still buying illegal marijuana on the streets, because now, it’s cheaper.
The only question now is what will Colorado tax next in order to make up for the difference?

"Starbucks baristas make about $9/hr. If they make 3 drinks for $5 each, they pay for their hour of their labor & supplies. At 5 drinks they pay for themselves & a coworker. At 10 the whole store for an hour. At peak hours they make 2-300 drinks & see none of the profits. Every drink after 3 is theft."
"profit (aka theft)" hahahahahahahah
"Every drink after 3 is theft"
I’m sure Starbucks just magically produces coffee. Coffee just comes to be in each establishment.
Is not like Starbucks has to buy the coffee and pay tariffs, buy all other things like cups, milk, sugar, chocolate, etc, pay for the utilities, pay for transport logistics, pay for marketing research, marketing development and advertisement, market research, taxes and contracts with third persons, pay the (higher) salaries of people who are making more important, less dispensable jobs than serving coffee, etc.
The establishment just appears out of nowhere and coffee is already there ready to be served by a bunch of idiots who know nothing about businesses or economics getting paid $11/hr.
didn’t you know? Starbucks operates with absolutely zero over head. The only cost starbucks has is paying their employees. They don’t have to buy the coffee or anything.
The OP knows nothing about running a business. lmao.
lol @ profit is theft
This is sad and funny at the same time.
except for the fact workers practically BEGGED them for the job, and for the fact that the corporation is the entity that figured out how to provide said crazy-popular drink at said exact specifications that millions of people all over the world are insane crazy for, for only a small affordable fee. If the worker wants more money, SOCIALISM (LOL) IS NOT the best answer, it is not even ANY answer because LOL all that it will do will make EVERYTHING MORE EXPENSIVE & WORSE QUALITY. You see, Socialism means the GOV. is involved. Therefore the whole damn thing will be jacked up from day one, so, make your own product & corporation or educate yourself & get a higher paying job instead of voting in blood-sucking, Freedom-killing, wage-stomping Socialism in the door!
Don’t like it, get another job. It’s really that simple.
Two New York women were arrested Monday after allegedly forcing the dwellers of a Brooklyn apartment to flee their home at gunpoint. The attack was apparently racially motivated, as police claim one woman said she was tired of white people moving into her neighborhood.
It’s a good thing New York has such strict gun laws, I mean, honestly, had the white renters in these apartments owned guns they could’ve shot and stopped these racist theives!

Its a good thing Chicago has such strict gun laws, I mean, honestly, if the victim would’ve had a [conceal-carry] firearm, he could’ve shot and killed the innocent perps!
I wouldn’t recommend buying the shirt because fckh8 is a questionable org, but these kids are on point and cute as hell.
Racism will never be over. Grow up, get over it, and move on.
