    President Obama is causing the down slide.

    so you think the government ought to set wages based on what you think is right?

    most smart people get minimum wage jobs out of the way at an early age and get the proper education so they don't have to dig ditches. The market pays Ivy league law school honors graduates a lot more than ditch diggers. obviously society values us more.

    Sorry to rain some truth down on you but that is a fact. Just like society values more a guy who can consistently hit 25 foot jumpers with a couple 250 pound giants hanging on his jock when he tries to shoot over a car mechanic.

    And I think it is a hopeless cause for you to even understand the principle behind progressive taxation as I have not yet seen anything you have said that even hints that you have an understanding of its principle. I am not completely sure, but as a lawyer, aren't you supposed to be able to understand your opponents position in order to make credible arguments against it?

    I'll try explaining it one more time ...

    Let me begin by asking you some questions ...

    Do you believe taxes are necessary? Why or why not?
    Yes, taxes are necessary to fund the government.

    If the majority of society agrees taxes are necessary, do you believe it is ethically sound to tax a citizen who does not have enough money to pay the most humble of living expenses, i.e. clothing, food and shelter? Why or why not?
    No. But, these people should not have a say in the spending of tax moneys.
    Do you think that equal opportunity is ethical? Why or why not?
    Equality of opportunity, yes. Most libs want equality of outcome, which is impossible.

    Once you have answered these questions, I may have some idea s to whether or not you will be able to understand the concept of progressive taxation and I can continue explaining it to you.

    It's called human nature. Progressive posters are just as if not more guilty of that.

    This is correct. Very good! No corporation has to provide you with a job; therefore, it is not your right to have that job. Second, corporations do not have a right that you buy their products. The deal is that a corporation manufactures or provides a service that enough someones need or want the product or service to make the business profitable. If they don't make the appropriate products or service or consumers don't want to buy, the corporation will go out of existence. That happens virtually every day of the year. I think you get the idea of how free enterprise works. I congratulate you as many don't quite understand that.

    Oh I can take it a step farther , actually two steps.
    1 The more people that have jobs the more consumers you have.
    2 This is a global market based on a capitalism, in a capitalist market it's dog eat dog or who ever has the most consumers makes the most money.
