    Much "news" these days is actually commentary.

    I can't argue for or against something if I don't know what it is/means.
    I gave you a starting point.

    Here is a simplification. A form of minimum wage that simply compensates unemployed labor for being unemployed on an at-will basis. I hope this is easier.

    All you seem to have is diversion.

    So, how does that work for the Electorate of the United States?

    The only sure bulwark of continuing liberty is a government strong enough to protect the interests of the people, and a people strong enough and well enough informed to maintain its sovereign control over the goverment.

    Straight from the LA Times central committee. Yea I'll take that to the bank...if I can find one that hasn't shut down yet. Here in southern Colorado, the unemployment rate hovers around 18%. The closest town to my ranch is Monte Vista. At least half the businesses there have shut their doors through this never-ending recession. Many were iconic. The Ford dealership that closed was more than 100 years old. So was the furniture store that closed in 2011. It'd been in business for 105 years. The Radio Shack had been around for 50 years. It closed in 2013. And there are dozens of other businesses that've tanked besides those. Monte Vista is starting to look like a ghost town.

    I already responded to that.

    You dismissed my response as a diversion, which was incorrect.

    Similar stuff around here; started well before the economic crash. It sucks.

    Can you re-state your position, it didn't seem very clear or concise.

    Here is a simplification. A form of minimum wage that simply compensates unemployed labor for being unemployed on an at-will basis. I hope this is easier.

    I said I responded.

    My response was intended as a request for clarification:

    Unless you're saying that the minimum allowable wage should be a required amount of money for every single person to have, and thus they must be paid min wage even if they aren't working?

    I am saying that we could solve simple poverty at the rock bottom cost of a form of minimum wage and that form of market based metric under our form of Capitalism, by using the Socialism of the existing law, to bail it out.

    Please clarify what you mean by the following phrases: "simple poverty", "a form of minimum wage", and "and that form of market based metric".
