    I'm Republican, I disapprove of a minimum wage hike, and I have indeed burned toast in the last 12 months..... but I didnt report it. It may be more wide spread that people want to believe.

    Indeed. Unfortunately it seems that many college students who have taken it while surviving on student loans disagree and consider themselves an authority on the issue.

    I didn't realize the implications of my question until you responded earlier and I understood what you meant.

    OTOH, I've shared some humidors in my life. With all the virgins gone to reward suicide bombers, used humidors are all that's left these days.

It seems that 96% of Democrats who support such measures don't pay their interns.

    The abstract of the EPI study noted that "the same Members of Congress who are supporting a 40% wage hike on private sector employers are simultaneously failing to provide any wages to their own employee interns."

    Last year, I wrote for Newsbusters about how the media rail about the gender wage gap, but seem to ignore that the Obama White House paid their female staffers 88.3% of what their male ones earn.

    It's hypocritical when the Dems are demanding that every should be apples.

    Are they? What does that even mean? What are the apples in this analogy that Dems want everyone to be?

    How about you tell me what the apples and oranges stood for it your original argument first. Since you were unclear I simply flipped a coin.

    They don't stand for anything, saying someone is comparing apples and oranges is a very common expression which just means that someone is comparing two very different things that aren't really comparable, they don't stand for specific things.

    Why the hell do I have to explain this? I just want to know what you think Dems want everyone to be

    So what were the two very different things you were comparing? Obviously you knew what they were when you said it.

    Why the hell do I have to explain this?
    Because when you say that two things are very different you need to be able to express what those two things actually are rather than hide behind a colloquialism. I made the mistake of assuming you knew the two things you were comparing, apparently you don't?
