It sounded like a good idea at the time

I am not a smart man. This is a fact.

So when I can see the future of silly political and policy decisions, I assume everyone else can.

But, alas, that's the not the case.

We warned our liberal fans about the downside of forcing businesses to pay $15 dollars-an-hour. Now we're being proven right.

A Seattle restaurant chain is declaring bankruptcy because of the higher minimum wage.

But hey, it sounded like a good idea at the time.

The fight for $15 has more to do with the waning power of labor unions than any real concern for people who flip burgers or push brooms. But yet, there are still people who believe in the hype.

Anyone with a brain saw the nightmare-in-waiting that was Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Immediately after the 2018 election, AOC proved to be vapid, self-centered, and uncontrollable.

But Nancy Pelosi wanted to look hip. So she attached herself to AOC, literally, on the cover of Rolling Stone Magazine.

But hey, it sounded like a good idea at the time.

And it sounds like a good idea right now to give Megan Rapinoe as much air time as possible.

She's a fantastic soccer player. And she hates President Trump, so CNN and MSNBC are putting her front and center.

But how long before her 15 minutes of fame is up? How long before she says something, or does something to cross the line?

But hey, it sounded like a good idea at the time.
