I was the first to show how it fit our conversation and then you tried to highjack it and somehow twist it into a point against me. It was one of my key complaints and you had already previously expressed agreement with me on it.
Dude, your are dancing, twisting, spinning, diverting, distracting and dodging as much as any left wing extremist I have ever dealt with. Lol! And you sure have run away from the claim you made about inflation and taxes eating up any gain people would get from a minimum wage increase.
I already provided you a link to the facts.. The fact is you didn't like them regarding min. wage.. Its all about cause and effect and now you want small companies to go out of business with very low profit margins..

<quoted text> Let's continue:
As he traveled through the rural West, journalist Joel Dyer constantly heard these refrains:“Environmentalists wouldn’t let me run my cows cause some damn little sparrow they said was endangered lived on my place,”“They took my farm,”“The IRS took everything I owned.”“These people believe the government is responsible for where they are, because they are finding themselves ignored, basically, by the economic system. People are losing their homes, their farms, their jobs, their sources of income. Corporations have been allowed to move wherever they want, and to take away jobs by the truckload. People are becoming economically dispossessed.”
NAFTA took away American jobs; what they see as the “Burger King” economy leaves no room at the top, so “many youngsters see themselves as being forced to compete with nonwhites for the available minimum wage, service economy jobs that have replaced their parents’ unionized industry opportunities.”
That such ardent patriots are so passionately antigovernment might strike the observer as contradictory. After all, are these not the same men who served their country in Vietnam or in the Gulf War? Are these not the same men who believe so passionately in the American Dream? Are they not the backbone of the Reagan Revolution? Indeed, they are. The extreme Right faces the difficult cognitive task of maintaining their faith in America and in capitalism and simultaneously providing an analysis of an indifferent state, at best, or an actively interventionist one, at worst, and a way to embrace capitalism, despite a cynical corporate logic that leaves them, often literally, out in the cold—homeless, jobless, hopeless.

US Secretary of State Kerry: "The Monroe Doctrine is Over"
http://www.laht.com/article.asp...
Under President Obama’s leadership, we’ve also helped expand the region’s participation in the Trans-Pacific Partnership, taking it beyond Chile and Peru to include Canada and Mexico. And we have redoubled our commitment to NAFTA, the greatest single step toward shared prosperity in this hemisphere, which I am pleased to say also I voted for at a time when I think people remember it was very contentious and very difficult. But all of us know – can’t rest on those agreements alone. That’s not enough. We know we can do more. And if we do more, the Western Hemisphere will continue to be a leader in the global markets for decades to come.

What the Founding Fathers Believed: Stock Ownership for All
http://www.pbs.org/newshour/businessdesk/2013...
Our forefathers, George, John, Tom, James, and even Alexander, would, we believe, approve of this path for overcoming the danger to the country of wealth inequality. The Constitution begins, "We the People," not "We the Billionaires." We will better preserve or restore the reality of "We the People" if more of us have an ownership stake as well as work stake in our economy. The founders believed that a democratic republic required wide ownership of property and a bustling middle class to ensure its very existence.

Wow, you really don't have much of a life do you?

It wouldn't have made any sense to call myself "My Wild Irish Rose."

I dropped the "My" and that's why it's simply "Wild Irish Rose." I had never heard of the wine or whiskey until some idiot like you hassled me about my screen name.

Now, you're just getting tedious, boring and beyond stupid.

I also never said my screen name is a "brand of whiskey." It stands for the old Irish ballad "My Wild Irish Rose."
You lie just for the helluva it apparently. Thanks for proving what an azzhole you are. I knew it long ago though.
Most Massage therapy students are perverts. I went to a meeting dinner with some a while back and all they talked about was either how gross their client was or how Sexy they thought some client was. And they are fkn weird to say the least! They talk about how sexy it was when they get to see some clients personal parts .

Someone I know who had Dr. prescribed massage therapy went to receive it. And the Therapist invited him to go in a back room. When She the therapist started getting weird he had to stop her. Then She the therapist got all pissed and tried to turn it around on him claiming he was the one being sexual!

Even the Commercials on the TV show the Therapists on the Denver School of Massage therapy when you look at the people claiming to have graduated from there all look like a bunch of perverted Crack heads.

George Will on Obama:
"America has had some great presidents, many mediocre ones and a few bad ones. But we’ve never had one like Barack Obama. He’s the first who thinks the job is beneath him.
He’s the first who turns political give-and-take into a crisis by refusing to negotiate with Congress.
He’s the first who thinks the way to more power is to inflict pain on ordinary people.
The move to barricade the World War II memorial reveals the mentality of a tin-pot dictator. The limited government shutdown did not need to affect the memorial because it is open 24 hours, without gates and often without guards.
But to turn public opinion in his favor, Obama’s goons trucked in barricades to keep out World War II vets and other visitors. By one estimate, the barricades and workers cost $100,000.
The same punish-the-people attitude led to shutdowns of other parks and historic sites that get no federal funding.
“We’ve been told to make life as difficult for people as we can. It’s disgusting,” a Park Service ranger told The Washington Times.
The ranger cited the order to close the parking lot at George Washington’s home in Mount Vernon so visitors couldn’t use it. The cheap trick captured the contrast between a revered president and the current one.
I’ve been saying for a while that there is no bottom to Obama. He’s not just ruthless. He’s without scruples and honor.
Now the shutdown has ended, it will bring only a temporary respite from the crisis atmosphere in Washington . When it comes to his countrymen, Obama always chooses conflict over cooperation.
Meanwhile, Jimmy Carter can rest easy. We have a new worst president."

Folks, I am 100% honest. I have taken an intensive 2 day course in helping folks get signed up for ObamaCare. My buds all think I will steal your identity and open bank accounts or take out credit cards in your names using your info.

This is false.

If you like your identity, you can keep it...PERIOD!

A fry cook at McDonald's starts out at $8 per hr and if he sticks it out and follows the program he can work his way up to store manager in less than a year and earn close to $15 an hour. If the minimum wage goes to $15 per hour that store manager isn't going to keep coming to work for the same salary as the help. He will demand a $7 raise as well. The factory that makes McDonald's french fry boxes will have to raise the cost of french fry boxes to pay for his $15 per hour newbie employees, his $25 production workers and his $40 per hour line supervisors. The plant that processed McDonald's fries will have to up their costs too. After the ripple effect of a minimum wage increase that large would cause the price of a Chocolate Shake and Fries to be $10 or more. McDonald's would have to shut down and all those $15 per hour fry cooks will be $0 per hour unemployed bums reminiscing the good old days when an unskilled laborer could get a job dunking precut frozen potatoes into hot oil.

16 Great Conservative Thinkers Who Helped Shape Republican Ideals
http://www.newsmax.com/TheWire/16-great-conse...
Conservatives are a diverse lot. Even so, there are similar foundations in their thinking. These many politicians, social philosophers, authors, and activists share certain core beliefs. In essence, they echo down the centuries, firmly holding onto traditional attitudes and values and remaining wary of change simply for change’s sake.

Here are 16 of the great conservatives, intellectual stepping stones leading to the present day.

1. Confucius (551–479 BC)
Chinese communists originally despised Confucianism and did everything they could to eradicate what they viewed as a philosophy from the days of feudalism that encouraged social inequity and interfered with social justice. Modern China has rehabilitated his reputation, however.

Nice friends you have.

I never experienced anything like that when I attended Massage Therapy school, and I never heard any massage therapists talk in such unprofessional ways about their clients.

Maybe Denver just attracts lowlifes and perverts as you call them.

I worked in respectable gyms like 24-Hour Nautilus. I also worked for a Chiropractor and an acupuncurist as well as Chevron and Wells Fargo doing on-site chair massage.

I have never been involved with anyone in the business who had any inappropriate contact with a client.

I think you're lying though. You do that often when you want to impress someone or rag on someone and try to degrade them. It's not working, Quirky. The people I went to school with were college graduates, homemakers and mothers, former business people who wanted a change of career, but no "perverts" or anything like you're lying about.

Ted Cruz is not the leader the U.S. needs
http://napavalleyregister.com/news/opinion/ma...
The Founding Fathers, the drafters of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, were secular humanists. Humanism is a philosophy of life advocating human reason, ethics, social justice and philosophical naturalism, while specifically rejecting religious dogma, supernaturalism, pseudoscience or superstition as the basis of morality and decision making.
