    Note, I worked at McDonald's one day in high school and quit, got my $16 check.
    I was on the line for dinner, I fixed up like 100 burger felt like an hour,
    Looked at clock, it had been 5 minutes. It was then I swore off fast food
    And worked at a toy store (unionized in NJ) and movie theaters.
    I worked at a Carl's jr out in Fresno back in 91 for 6 months.. Liked it.

    Try not to go off the deep end dude. I never asked for your resume, nor do I even care to see it. I don't see how that's even remotely relevant to what I said.

    You're the one insinuating I didn't know what I was talking about, and I offered a sample.

    If you're going to play, try to keep up.

    I say again - I do not give a shit about your resume. I honestly could not care less if you've worked in a restaurant or not. Back your claim up with actual evidence or stats...

    You are aware that the population has been growing exponentially don't you?

    Lets make this simple. Say the U.S. gov has enough economic buying power to purchase 1,000 happy meals and the population is 10... Everyone can eat like kings-some may get more, some may get none but really there is enough to go around. Say over the next 100 years, the purchasing power goes up 100 but the population goes up 1,000,000. Now there isn't enough to go around no matter how you slice it....

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.
    Please provide this definition-from a reputable source... How tolerent would you say Joe is of Christians? Does that make Joe a conservative? So you are tolerent of racists? Compassionate toward human trafficers? Hell, you aren't even tolerent of those that wish to exercise their Consitutional rights....

    Do your own leg work, and check the Department of Labor website. Sorry it's not the Blaze, or other trash journalism.

    Now run along and play, sonny.

    That doesn't explain or justify the disproportionate rise in executive compensation.

    Merriam-Webster. When it comes to defining words, you can't get more reputable than that!

    Oh, let's throw in a thesaurus entry, too:

    liberal adjective
    Definition of LIBERAL

    You were saying?

    And, by the way, the "intolerance of the intolerant" argument doesn't work. I really don't know why you intolerant people keep using it.

    I'm not sure you are aware of what proportional means.... Take a few minutes and do a quick internet search on John D. Rockefeller, Andrew W. Mellon, Andrew Carnegie, Henry Flagler, Henry H. Rogers, J. P. Morgan, Leland Stanford, Charles Crocker, and/or Cornelius Vanderbilt and tell me that today's execs are disproportionaly rewarded. Now if you said that some are rewarded for doing a shitty jo, I would completely agree but hey...as a Democrat, you should be all for that right?

    The people that you mentioned weren't mere executives. They were founders and owners of the company. That would be equivalent to the stockholders, who actually have to depend on the executives to do their jobs.

    Now if you said that some are rewarded for doing a shitty jo, I would completely agree but hey...as a Democrat, you should be all for that right?
    If by "shitty job," you mean cleaning up the shit that Republicans leave; you're damned right I'm all for it.
