    Not necessarily true. I would rather spend more for better quality of goods and service.

    Could you put a dollar amount on that?

    A little biased maybe yea but for the life of me I just can not understand why people defend the idea of tax payer subsidized labor.

    And you can do that. Wal-mart gives people the option to pay less for goods and devices that satisfy their needs. Choices are good, right? You like having them, don't you?
    You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.

    Correct. "Sisyphean" is essentially toiling endlessly to no effect. Kinda like debating Righties.

    Have not looked into it in that detail. I know the current minimum wage is not enough and although I personally would like to see it around $30K I seriously doubt it would need to be that high. Guessing 22-25K ?

    How would US consumers benefit from purchasing US goods?

    You really need that one answered....or is this just libertarian selfishness at play?

    Oh yea I have no issue with options or even cheap stuff, just saying sometimes you really get what you pay for.

    Blaxshep, your argument is not with me. I agree with you. So how do we provide those jobs that pay a living wage, when businesses are apprehensive about their future?

    For the life of me, if that is your beef, I can't understand the selective indignation.
