    Debate isn't all opinion you know. Opinion not based in fact is just absolute fruitiness.
    Well, while you might desire a war of links, I prefer a rational discussion of ideas with points and counter points put forth by individual thought.

    What I'm finding odd is that you seem to think that "rational discussion of ideas with points and counter points put forth by individual thought", and footnotes/links supporting points and counterpoints somehow can't exist in the same discussion.

    I don't feel the need to justify my opinions to you or anyone else. If you don't like that type of discussion, move along...

    I'll move along from your opinions. When you state your opinions as unprovable fact, you'll probably see me again.

    Yeah denying reality is always the best path to success
    “And I have no doubt that every new example will succeed, as every past one has done, in shewing that religion & Govt will both exist in greater purity, the less they are mixed together.”

    Walmart says it will cancel its plans to build three new stores in D.C. if local lawmakers approve a bill that would force the retailer to pay its employees at least $12.50 an hour.

    Alex Barron, a regional general manager for Walmart U.S., writes in an op-ed published in the Washington Post Tuesday that the company feels the D.C. Council's proposed "living wage" legislation “would clearly inject unforeseen costs into the equation that will create an uneven playing field and challenge the fiscal health of our planned D.C. stores.”


    Walmart currently has three other new stores under construction in the area, and Barron says those stores will also be jeopardized if the bill passes.

    Wal-Mart serves the poorest (and least influential) consumers, so their better off neighbors are happy to throw them under the bus so they themselves can thump their chests about how progressive they are. What breathtaking hypocrisy.

    They don't just serve the poorest consumers, they also tend to make the poorest consumers. Those in D.C. won't be missing anything without these Walmarts in there.

Cool way of letting Chineese nationals, Middle Eastern dictators or whoever wants to buy influence over American political outcomes by letting them buy constitutional rights in ways financially out of reach for most Americans.

    Trivia: where does your political party stand on the issue of saying corporations should have contitutional rights and do you even care because your favorite pundit of whom you are a certified groupie convinced you to support handing over our sovereignty to foreigners (as long as they're rich foreigners) under the guise of being pro-business?

    When corporations can vote, the worry about foreign nationals having a say in our political process will be warranted.
    You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.

    Sounds like a good bumper sticker. Like most bumper stickers, it doesn't make any sense when you try to find some truth behind it and come up with nothing.
