    Yeah; I picked up on that. I have a keen intellect (learned to read)

    My question is what in particular supported your contention, and how so? I'm seeing no mutuality, and am hoping you can help me out.

    TIA,

    Just another beautiful day in Supply Side lalaland, where letting markets pay squat is nirvana come to earth. Yippee for the righty nincompoops and their economic studies on AM radio!!!
    Hi, Sisyphus!

    Where else can conservatives go? The choices are somewhat limited, you know! :

    Just curious, but wasn't Sisyphus the guy who forever had to push a boulder uphill as punishment for something?

    $0.00 Provided they were not employed by some other greedy pricks that exploit their labor and push off their responsibility for fair compensation on the tax paying public.

    Quote it and show how it is inaccurate.....that would be more that what Jack can do.
    Excuse me, how would Wal*Mart's customers benefit from higher prices? Consumers benefit from lower prices. This isn't rocket science.

    What ever it takes for one man or woman to eek out a meager existence without the need for public assistance. A roof over your head 3 meals a day, could be hotdogs, macaroni and cheese and Ramon noodles and a bicycle to ride to work. Not a whole lot more required.

    So nobody would be living there, or, are you just a little bit biased in your estimating?

    Let me get this, Walmart is reported on daily, some of it negative.....and this little story was a planned event...by the Canadian Broadcast Company?

    Really?

    sigh...
    I did not call anyone a liar. What I said was that we don't know at this point what the truth is. There is a difference. ...sigh...
