    You were the one inoking socialism and is now spinning. The story is a trivial nothing.
    No.. You were... You were the one that brought socialism into this.. Probably because I am a socialist..

    How can you possibly know every single thing that there is to know in the entire world? Surely there are one or two things that you don't know anything about.

    Are you sure about your certainty? or would you like to reconsider your position?

    I am pretty sure that Zinthaniel asked you politely to "run along now".

    There is a huge difference between a Vet receiving what was earned by their service and someone crying for that which they didn't.
    You might want to learn that.

    Productivity is more a result of work being made easier, modernization. Not the worker working harder.
    It is ridiculous to hold that out as if it means anything.

    You have no real point as that has taken the place of a specific type of job.
    That is a net loss in jobs.

    HELL no!!
    That is a very common sentiment.

    It seems to me that a huge number of individuals who oppose increasing the minimum wage are people who make low wages and oppose an increase in pay to protect their ego. It's an idiotic self-destructive pride thing.

    They make a pittance more than a entry level burger flipper and the only way they have to make themselves feel superior to that guy is to keep themself and that guy down.

    I am completely against a $15 minimum wage - but I have zero problem if they got paid $15/hr. through labor negotiations/other direct means (in other words - if they earned it).
