    So, people who have a different world view.
    Much like the Taliban.

    As for Walmart, who cares at this point? People can accept what they are paying and the hours or not. That simple. You want better? Go to school.

    Mankind is a socialized predator, much like a wolf. Anyone acting like a member of a domesticated flock/herd is not acting human, Thus, I don't view them as human. They are a different species in direct competition for the resources of the planet/universe, thus, they are enemies.

    Perhaps it a variation on Neitzsche's master/slave morality. Some people will naturally be masters, some will tend towards natural slavery. What Neitzsche left out was some will tend towards freedom without the need to be masters over anyone but themselves. I hold to the third option, freedom without being a master and I despise and dehumanize anyone who would willing be a slave, the left, and those non-leftist who feel they must be masters over others, the corporatist.

    Define irony: Someone saying that basically anyone who is not Christian is inhuman, yet they are pulling a play from the Neitzsche handbook, when Neitzsche himself felt that God was dead.

    Try reading and comprehending. I never said non-christians, I said militant anti-christians. I guess thinking and comprehension are not your strongest attributes.

In nearly all cases the vendors control the prices to a greater extent then the store. Walmarts savings are exaggerated, go to the union store, buy the exact same basket of grocery products as Walmart, then go buy at walmart.
    Here: Consumer Benefits from Increased Competition in Shopping Outlets: Measuring the Effect of Wal-Mart

    It's not too long, only 28 pages, excluding the title page and reference page.

    Direct observation is more reliable then studies which are easy to skew.
    What exactly do you think longitudinal studies are, just simply researching facts and numbers on Google?

    Wrong, rising tide lifts all boats, transferring wealth from the top to people who consume more creates more jobs for the lower and middle class.
    What we are talking about is a bit more complex than a kiddy pool. There is something called a 'trade-off,' which occurs when a greater provision of social insurance and redistribution of income reduces the overall GDP pie.

    The real wages of workers have stagnated as big corporate taxes were lowered and rates of unionization decreased, in fact real wages haven't grow since the 1970s eve though productivity has increased. The richest meanwhile have increased earnings 700% clearly there is an issue here, forcing that 700 percent downward will help everyone else.
    Real wages aren't stagnant. They are still growing. Very slowly, but still growing.

    Everyone accepts food stamps, which is why your argument that stores paying living wages hurt the poor, the poor aren't paying out of pocket for food now, so slightly higher prices cannot hurt them
    There is no such thing as a living wage. High wages that doesn't accommodate market forces hurts everyone in the long run. That is why inflation exist. In the case of minimum wages, or living wages if you prefer, the ultimate end result will be cost push inflation. That hurts everyone, including the poor.

    I'm guessing tolerance isn't yours?

    Would Jesus have approved the above post?

    Just wondering.

    You mean like the vast majority of fundamentalist Christians on these forums?
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
