why are those things mutually exclusive? did i die and go to hell, the only place where trickle down economics works?

Yep... Pretty much.

Just as the Banking stimulus was supposed to stimulate consumer and business loans... But went to bonuses, sales incentive trips..

Its why I called BS on giving corporations big tax breaks bc recent trends are that money will pay for the 300 person all expense paid trip to Atlantis..not to Joe the widget maker.

since your smugness appears to be affecting your ability to read, I'll slow this down for you a little...

how does repeating "supply and demand" over and over negate the idea of the government supplementing walmart's wages and lack of benefits?

Uhm MadHatter runs a business so maybe you should leave the econominies figurin to experts okay

not to mention... where do you think all those walmart employees spend their assistance checks?

yea, that's right.

Fun fact: WalMart employees spend more per week at WalMart than the average WalMart customer.

so basically you think that you should accept whatever conditions that were present when you were hired? and yet you, and others, can't see the parallels between that and historical arguments against workers rights?

this is the only post i've seen in this entire thread that gets to the core philosophical argument necessary to address to come to any sort of conclusion in this debate. well that and the TS factory fire, which was a little dramatic but an effective statement nevertheless

No its really not and this is why...

People with ideology like Cantrell here see everything in black-and-white, no shades of grey at all.

Comparing not having holidays off at a retail store to say... unsafe working conditions, or even low wages is not a good comparison... not even close.

No one here, certainly not me, is advocating that workers should simply accept things as they are and never work for a better working environment... but if you accept a job where there are working days on holidays, then you have to work holidays.

It's a pretty simple concept, but if you see life like he apparently does, I guess it's not.

    • Glad you can point to 1 off season to hang your hat on, when it comes to your opinion.  Doesn't give you much to stand on. What exactly are we crowning him anyways?   
    • I'm sure he's learned his lesson not to have a conversation with our fan base because of the way this way blown out of context. He didn't ask a question. He didn't imply anything. However, the same fans that only read headlines and then share posts on Facebook (without reading the article) decided to make all kinds of accusations and assumptions about this. So yeah....Bill should be more clear because we aren't very smart.  Edit: FYI...."if picked up" is not a question it's a statement. Should he have just assumed instead?
    • Nate Silver did an analysis on this, and not sure which party it would benefit more but what he did say was that it would likely hurt GOP more to pass it than for it to fail That is how unpopular this bill was
