    Aside from the fact that the corporations are the worst enemies of the mom and pop stores, how about some proof? No? Well, I have some proof to the contrary;

    Proof of what? Government regulation being burdensome on small business? Are you serious?

    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it.

    You mean, can states protect their citizens from out of control local lib governments. The answer should be a resounding, HELL YES!

A hike in MW causes inflation of costs to adjust, thus MW workers, though earning more, end up in the same economic position while others are dragged down as their wages devaluate.
    Au contraire mon frere, many union contracts are tied to the minimum wage. It's only us non-union schlubs who get screwed. It's no mystery who is behind the push for minimum wage hikes. Once again, lib policies hurt the people they pretend to care about.

    If raising the MW is such a great thing for the poor as the liberals love to say, I'd like to ask why stop at $10, or $15? Why not shoot for $25, or hell, even $100 that would solve all our problems. Right?

    All I needed to see in your first link was this phrase; "Research conducted by the Heritage Foundation in 2003 found..." The Heritage Foundation is so ideologically biased that the only people that take it seriously are conservatives and the TP. I'll pass.

    Now, on the second think, under "About us" and "Advocacy" I found this: " Our mission is to defend the right of small business owners to run their businesses without undue government interference...." More right wing propaganda."

    Please find sources like mine that are not associated with political ideology.

    I accept your resignation and inability to discuss the topic.

    No need to give up the subject twice. I get it. You can't discuss the subject without the fallacy of attacking the sources, both of which are small business focused. I'm sorry for your loss.
