    What does that have to do with your mistaken opinion that Bush is moderate? As I've said before, comparisons are lame. So are deflections.

    When you can show me that these domestic terrorists and communists have worked closely together for forty years and produced a manifesto with a unified voice as the neo-cons did, I'll concede the point. If you can't, it's like comparing a championship sports team to a gus macker team.

    But I see that you are lost in the theater of it all and cant wrap your head around the fact that there is only one party... and you ain't invited.

    All you've done is deflect so far.

    No, I'd actually like to see some of your reasoning....something that has been lacking so far.

    Your list was "most influential" and Straussians. Leaves a lot of room. Left out Ledeen, Rice, Ashcroft, Abrams, Fukuyama, Perle, Libby, Cheney, Rumsfeld and on and on and on.

    There is NOTHING you OR wiki can teach me about who the neo-cons are, or what they're about.

    Deflection? We're talking Bush and you reply with Obama soundbytes.

    I'd say following the neo-con manifesto to the letter is being part of it... yes.

    I doubt that. The neocons are a particular subset that does not include some whom you have listed.

    Everyone I listed was a signatory of their manifesto. Sorry... you are ill informed.

    Doesn't matter for this discussion. This is about walmart and wages... not your silly notion that Bush was a moderate.

    Keep posting off topic... please.

    Want to start a thread on YOUR topic.. go for it.

    I merely questioned your obviously erroneous post.

    On the other hand, if it's what you intend be my guest. A VAT is just one more hidden tax. Be a man! Rob from me face to face.

    So, you prefer to use an ad hominem instead of addressing my question? No worries, I didn't take you serious anyway.

But some cannot be outsourced, no matter how much a retailer would love it if goods could be rung up or stocked onto shelves, by cheap foreign labor, remotely. But they cannot; they have to hire locally. So the services sector is going nuts creating the bulk of new jobs, in our workforce, which has more workers today than at any time in history. But the wages are shrinking, so less is purchased in retail, reducing the need for other workers to be added. If we take the $7.25 and make it $12, then lots (millions) of jobs will be created. If we take it to $1 / hr, not only will we not compete for manufacturing, but the need for workers in retail, who cannot be outsource, will be reduced by millions.

    Realizing a falsehood, as you urge, is merely embracing a delusion and not actually realizing anything.
    When you have to pay more per person, companies hire fewer people.

    When ObamaKare forces costs upon employers, they reduce their hours or let them go.

    Try running a company some day.

    Nice try... but try again.
