    You know, it's funny how you only quote the portion of my post that you want, but not the other.
    Where I call you out for being dishonest in your debate tactics.
    You indicated as much many times.

    I reprint what's pertinent to the discussion. Why would I reprint your numerous insults and your quirky irrelevant BS?

    Please do.
    I already asked you to show me and you haven't.

    Come on now, let's see it.

    Even after the civil war it was like that.

    We've been industrializing a lot lately, that's mostly the reason for our new growth.
    A Johnny comes lately still knows how to cook a poke chop and leave the r off of it. The stupidity of the South is a choice.

    Really! What has changed are the effects being felt from the last decade of supply side economics, deregulation, and the open class war expressed by conservatives since the 2010 election when they made clear their plans to cut benefits to the middle class and the poor to provide even more tax cuts for the rich.

    And its already changed. More than I ever thought possible given the dire economic condition fighting two wars and with the worst congress in history. We didn't continue to spiral into another Great Depression as was likely thanks to the stimulus the GOP opposed. And we have created more manufacturing jobs than under any of the last 4 presidents. We have withdrawn all troops from Iraq. Both McCain and Romney said they would have left them there. We are drawing down the troops from Afghanistan, to have them all out by the end of next year. Both McCain and Romney said it was too quick. We passed the first baby step toward UHC, Romney says he will undo health care reform. We have made the largest investment in clean energy in our history, and made the biggest reduction in CO2 in our history, while Romney's not sure yet if he believes in climate change. The middle class has received two tax reductions, while Romney plans to cut tax rates for the rich even further, and increase taxes for those under $40,000.

    That just a few of our accomplishments off the top of my head, and that was done with the GOP requiring a super majority on almost every vote!
    There is not a doubt in my mind that we will be making the correct choice in November!

    Come on now, let's see it.

    As you wish!


    My question to you was:


    Post # 267 this thread


    Originally Posted by Catawba

    and you said:


    I didn't say they shouldn't in the first place.

    And here are just a few of the places where you have indicated that you do not aggre that "many full time making minimum wage need welfare."






    Post #106 on Minimum wage jobs leave millions in poverty.


    Harry - So teenagers and other people, who don't need your living wage, should still earn a living wage?



    Post #108 same thread


    Harry - The entire argument behind this is stupid and shows that people really don't think about what constitutes a "living wage."
    What a living wage is based on is, individual/family circumstances, geographic location and current economic considerations.


    What a living wage in Boston is, wouldn't be the same for Piedmont, Alabama.
    Are we going to adjust these wages based on every one of these considerations?
    Any "living wage" would be set on arbitrary factors and wouldn't ever satisfy the needs of some people.



    Post #115 same thread


    Originally Posted by atrasicarius

    Harry - If it is based on their own lack of motivation, absolutely.
    But calling anything "poverty" in the U.S. is a resounding joke.


    We already have a **** ton of life style support programs to help those that are, without motivation, have a disability, have too many kids, etc.



    Post #199 same thread


    Harry - I do not disapprove of a safety net, but a "living wage" that can't even be calculated fairly, is completely useless.



    It seems obvious to me your post at the top of the page is dishonest based on your previous statements shown here, but I leave the evidence so that others may decide on their own.

    Only black folks talk like that. Is that another example of Leftist racism? Or Leftist ignorance of a culture they hate?

    You made a broad personal attack about Southerners using the regional accent and then proceeded to call Southerns stupid.
    I find it ironic that, you use regional bigotry and prejudice, but then call another stupid.
