Miley Cyrus Is Twerking Against The Working People! But Does She Know That?

Filed under: PolitikMiley Cyrus

miley billboard minimum wage

Miley Cyrus may stick her tongue out at this, but she might be doing so in disgust!

In good news, California is officially raising their minimum wage to $9! Great news, right?

Well, the Employment Policies Institute seems to have a problem with people getting paid more and being able to afford rent and feed their families.

In fact, they've used Miley's image above in an ad that's against this wage hike, a billboard which implies that one of the reasons Miley's "twerked off" is that minimum wage is being raised.

According to research director of the Institute, Michael Saltsman, Miley has not been approached on her feelings towards the wage increase:

"EPI purchased the rights to use the photograph, but we haven't checked with Miley on whether the minimum wage increase is the real reason she's 'twerked off.' We're not attributing this particular point of view to her — we're just using a fun turn-of-phrase to jump-start a conversation about the unintended consequences of wage mandates."

Yeah, we're pretty sure this may cross a line or two, as it appears to be somewhat of an endorsement.

While the Institute mentions that this increase will make teens lose their jobs, they fail to mention that it might help those working minimum wage jobs with families to support.

We'll see if and how Miley responds to all this!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayNFL

kerry rhodes defends against gay allegations nfl sports equality

Speculation or not, going out and essentially shouting that you're not gay just comes off as you viewing being gay as a totally negative thing! It's not offensive to be mistaken for a gay man at all! If you need to clear it up, do it modestly! Plus you totes were carrying around a dude while shirtless on your vacay… LOLz!

Here's what Kerry said:

Obama Admin Speaks Out AGAINST Prop 8!

obama administratio speaks out in favor of gay marriage

Marriage isn't a federal issue, our asses!

Despite openly supporting gay marriage and emphasizing the importance of equal rights SPECIFICALLY when it comes to homosexuals in his inauguration speech, President Obama (well his administration at least) have remained adamant that enforcing or amending marriage laws is NOT the job of the federal government…

BUT, it seems that Obama and his peeps have had a change of heart, as the Obama admin. will file a "friend-of-the-court" brief in the Supreme Court TODAY in SUPPORT of those homosexual couples who took legal issue against Prop 8 when it shat all over the rights of California's gays 4 years ago!

Obama's Administration is URGING the court to overturn Prop 8, which would allow previous same-sex marriages to be recognized and (hopefully) would pave the way for complete gay-marriage legalization in the state of California.

The fate of Prop 8 will reportedly be decided by June… here's to Elton John FINALLY getting his wish of marrying in CA!

Yet another example of our wonderful President promoting tolerance and equality!

What a dream boat. Swooooooon.
