    Re: Man Flips Out Over Cheese on His Burger at Wendy's.

    If I was a business owner and forced to triple the wages to meet Rusty's definition of a "living wage," then I'd be forced to exercise some options, like raising the cost of goods/services, lay off employees, reduce everyone to part-time, or go out of business because I can no longer compete.

    As for paying more for my hamburger? Not going to happen!

    Higher wages mean more spending power and less debt. Which means more profit and, lower interest rates and higher wages for you yourself.


    I understand that you don't give a shit about anyone except yourself - don't worry, you benefit too from these higher wages.

    I was actually incorrect. $22 may have been a "living wage" or something like that, that I got from somewhere else. $10.70 is the actual wage of the 1968, adjusted for inflation. That's why there's a big push for an $11/hr minimum wage.

    Uhh... what? The "people" need something, and conservatives mock them for having a "sense of entitlement." Liberals care about people. Conservatives are all about "Fuck you; I've got mine, get your own."

FLAPS is knocking minimum wage for earners for having a tip jar on the counter. USN-Retired accused all poor people of being lazy parasites who are on drugs. Those are just two examples; and this is conservative thinking. Not liberal thinking.

    And if you think tolerating intolerance is hypocrisy, then your way of thinking is flawed.
    Not tolerating intolerance. Its any subject. Also he didnt say all poor are parasites on drugs. Many are but not all. Flaps wasnt mocking them.

    Emotionally hyoersensitive eh?

    The true, original definition of liberal/conservative has to do with their views on the constitution, not compassion or lack of. Liberals feel the constitution is a living, breathing document. Conservatives believe the constitution is "as printed". What you are refering to is simple party line views of the other side.

    Denial of what? Look at abortion, if somebody wants any regulations on abortion theyre hated by the liberals. Intolerance of a separate view is hypocrisy.

    Now look at race. If I was intolerant of black for simply the color of their skin then I would deserve the harassment. A view point such as abortion or tipping doesnt.
