    I mean..I'm by no means well-versed on economic theories, but as I understand it, Keynesian and supply-side are opposing theories.
    it has to do with supply side economics supplying us with better governance at lower cost; it is a form of command economics, but more efficient than our wars on abstractions such as crime, drugs, poverty, or terror.

    all i am saying is that full employment of resources should be a benchmark Standard. it is only those of the opposing view that have nothing but stereotypical, propaganda and rhetoric, instead of logic and reason.

    no. all we have had is more government programs while decrying the sad state of entitlement mentality.

    sure. why not "fill the ounce" in order to supply us with better governance at lower cost.

    Why do you not believe in the laws of demand and supply?

    A form of minimum wage is a market based metric. Anyone who would want to earn more than that would be welcome to compete in the market for labor, for a potential efficiency wage and perchance, even a bonus, besides.
    Stop it.

    I never stated or implied any such thing. Abandon your strawman and address my post.

    No, you need to explain the topic in different words so that I know what you're talking about.

    Otherwise you're just talking to yourself.
