    And there it is. This is the mindset that leads to this situation. The circular logic of the value of human labor, you are why we spend so much on welfare.

    The margin of percentage that many Republicans won by was small, but the amount of wins in the senate and governors was a political shellacking. I hope you don't work for Dem campaigns, because those who refuse to see anything wrong, will get it again.

    I really don't care for people making up responsibilities and necessary evils out of their ass. It stinks.

    Does the stuff that comes out of your ass smell like roses?

    Yes, labor has a certain marketable value. What evil stuff there.

    I have not used the word evil regarding any of this.

    In other words, you didn't have an intelligent response so you pointed fingers and pretended I'm to blame. Gotcha.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    What is actually wrong about wages being determined by value? What would you base it on? That someone is human and needs stuff?

    NPR airs over 30 programs nationally, only a small handful of which ever deal with current news and/or politics.

    While those programs may have 30 million weekly listeners in aggregate none of them approach anything like those numbers individually or on a daily basis.

    Now, if you want to argue that something like the Diane Rehm program is overwhelmingly liberal I'd be inclined to agree with you, but that particular program is only pulling in around 2 million listeners weekly.

    Most of the NPR programming I listen to is decidedly middle-of-the-road. If it wasn't, if it was biased in either direction, I wouldn't waste my time listening to it (as I don't listen to Diane Rehm's progressive screed).

    For what it's worth, NPR also airs programming that tends to lean a bit more conservative. Not overwhelmingly so, but there's certainly a slight lean. I'd suggest listening to the Marketplace program a time or two if you're interested. It revolves more around business (the "marketplace" - duh) than politics, but when it does dip into politics or policy it tends to be with a fairly rational, slightly conservative slant (as one might expect from a program that speaks to business issues).
    I appreciate the defense of NPR. However, there is a reason certain groups and individuals donate to it. Beyond that, the greater point remains valid.
