    So what. There shouldn't be a minimum wage.

    Let the market decide what wages are. If you don't like 'em, negotiate for a higher wage by proving you're worth it, or go somewhere else.

    I'd say following the neo-con manifesto to the letter is being part of it... yes.
    Uhm, no. We were talking about Obama, and you jumped in and made it a conversation about Bush.

    Nice try... but try again.
    Nope. Pink slips go out when sales tank, due to lack of customers buying stuff.

    And vice versa. I addressed your suggestion head on. If you intend to rob me come do it face to face.

    Wrong... YOU brought Bush into it for the first time, here.

    If you can show me a post I made prior to that which mentioned Bush in this thread... I'll concede. Otherwise.. man-up and take your whoopin'

    Not wrong, we were talking about a claim that Obama was a moderate. I listed Bush and Clinton as examples of moderates, Obama certainly doesn't fit.

    You didn't. You replied to a post not directed at you.

    You didn't. You replied to a post not directed at you.
    ROFLMAO... If I had a dime... poor baby, did I step on your toes? You stated a ridiculous falsehood, I corrected you and you threw a fit.... get over it.

    Your opinion does not make fact. I posted fact. That you don't fact check makes you the bungler.

    You posted your opinion and called it fact. That's what's known as a delusion. When challenged you deflected. That was to protect the delusion.
