    That has got to be the most ridiculous thing I have ever read. Someone says, "Do this or you'll be punished" - but they have no authority over you unless you don't do what they've said.

    Do you even bother to read what you've written?

    i stated general authority,congress .........if you violate a federal power, or federal law thats pertains to a federal power, or commit treason, the government can punish you, because the constitution states it, however they cannot make federal laws, which are not listed in article 1 section 8 over the people like discrimination laws ....for one.


    if you counterfeit, you are violating a federal power

    if you commit piracy, you are violating a federal law

    if you dont pay income tax you are violating federal law

    if you commit treason against the u.s....you can be punished by congress

    all of these are listed in the constitution, other then these 4 the congress has no authority over the people


    To provide for the Punishment of counterfeiting the Securities and current Coin of the United States;

    To define and punish Piracies and Felonies committed on the high Seas, and Offences against the Law of Nations;

    The Congress shall have Power to declare the Punishment of Treason

    this means congress........not the executive branch

    Because that's completely possible when you are working a minimum wage job.

    Like I keep saying, many of these people working minimum wage jobs have no business doing so, they are only working them because they have failed to be responsible their entire lives. Other than for reasons entirely beyond one's control, no adult ought to be working a minimum wage job.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    No one said anything about the executive branch. I see you're still digging up irrelevant side shows in an attempt to divert from a losing battle.

    I see you've finally seen the light. The Fed does, indeed, have authority over the people by your own admission. Your claim is refuted - and that's in your limited little fantasy world that ignores 200+ years of legal decisions and challenges. Case closed.

    Thats one of those things we like to call "their problem". An employer is not obligated to base their wage levels on whether or not someone was stupid enough to run up 4-5 years of student loan debt to complete a degree in a Liberal Arts field with no plan on how to make that work for themselves.
