Because of Wal-Mart's inadequate wages and benefits, Wal-Mart employees are eligible for $2.5 billion in Federal assistance, which comes from your tax dollars.

I respect that you are approaching this from a Christian background. You didn't respond to the parable I posted about the servants and the talents their master gave them. Isn't this a complex message? How could the "Master" be proud of servants for investing? --- I accept "Blessed are the Poor". What do you think Jesus meant when he said "the poor will always be with us"?
I think He was saying that in this world, that is not his kingdom there will be illness, and handicap and poverty of spirit. "My Kingdom is not of this world". He was inviting us to focus on salvation and unity in him. Try as we might, the sinful world will have the poor.
You need to learn the lessons of history. Robspierre, Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Ceausescu, Hitler, Pol Pot, Castro, Kim Il Sung, all thought they could bring about equality. Marxism denies the diversity of humanity and must oppress to bring about equality. There is too much diversity created by God in us and only an all-powerful state can prevent talented people from succeeding and disadvantaged people from sinking. Frankly, you deny that humanity when you divide those who you are dialoging with you into either victims of oppression or evil oppressors.
With the best of intentions the monsters I mentioned have murdered millions because they seek the impossible equality.
I am reading Pol Pot's biography right now and his search for marxist equality at the cost of millions fanatically murdered is chilling.
If you believe in yourself and look for the next opportunity to better your self you can abandon the class envy which really only hurts you.
That's it. Just stick your fingers in your ear and say "La-la-la!"
So you don't wish to speak to me or others who disagree with you?
Sounds like a concession speech to me. Or a surrender.
Just like Lee handed Grant his sword at Appomattox.....
Whatever that national socialist named Michael Savage tells him it is.....
Baby seals? Environmentalism?
I'd rather have ANWR oil and nuclear power.
Not only are you a liberal fifth columnist, you're ALSO a WATERMELON!!!
(Green on the outside...RED on the inside.)
Being anti-abortion isn't enough to qualify you as a conservative, you poseur. Even Hitlery is anti-abortion these days.
I'll be as succint as possible.
You're a dingbat.
Mark Twain said it best.....
"People are about as happy as they want to be."
This nation, before the E. Mandell House/Woodrow Wilson income tax and then Commie-traitor Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal killed the free market in this country.
Laissez-faire unregulated capitalism was what made this nation the industrial and economic powerhouse it became in the latter 19th and early 20th Centuries.
Yeah, it also created vast wealth for the Morgans, Vanderbilts, Carnegies, Fricks, Westinghouses, et. al.
But since they took the initial risks, they deserved their rewards.
Are you really this OBTUSE, or are you just having a bad day?
I actually think the proper and "Christian" influenced thing to do is what is being attacked here - I want to supply the "working poor" a safety net. I support supplemental support to working poor like those at Walmart and other job places.
I don't think Walmart would be such an issue if we had an expanding middle income jobs like in manufacturing. But many people feel they are declining (that is the perception anyway) and Walmart is seen by many rightly or wrongly) as the only employer in town these days. That is the real issue but people are distracted away from that to talk of Walmart wages. If Ford and GM were expanding and hiring this would not be an issue.
I'm sorry I didn't detect your sarcasm. But there was no reason for you to become so vicious about it.
There are people here who actually think of Walmart like that.
Do you know by any chance, what was the tax source of federal government before the introduction of income tax? Do you?
I know! I know! Call on me! OOoo, Ooo! Call on me!
No, you sit quiet! We need to give chance to our chef.
Mr. Savage is not a national socialist. He rather qualifies as a Righteous Among the Jews. He was the main person on the radio who cried (quite loudly :)) in defence of Serbs, when they were demonized by almost everybody and they were killed by NATO/Muslim forces.
I have to agree with you. But it begs the question as to why. There is no simple answer to that simple question, but part of the root cause (IMO) is over regulation of everything from enviro rules/regs/laws to zoning to increased union demands and a whole host of other issues.
I do not see any quick fix in the short term to solve the problem either.
Exactly my point.
Well, "Borders, Language, Culture, Blood, and Soil" comes STRAIGHT from the pages of "Mein Kampf".
I know, because I've actually read Schicklgruber's awful book.
As for your first question about revenues raised before the unconstitutional and communist income tax,, I haven't the foggiest, but I'll check into it.
Frankly, I'm against taxation, (except to keep the potholes filled and the military second-to-none), asnd all regulation of the market and business.
Caveat emptor has worked fine for millenia before we created these unconstituional alphabet soup regulatory agencies.
People that don't do their homework before investing or going into business deserve what happens to them. There is no constitutional provision in the EIGHTEEN ENUMERATED POWERS granted the government to protect people from their own stupidity.
And please don't debase Holy Scripture by bringing it into a political/economic argument. It has no place there. Even Jesus said so.
What do you think "Render unto Caesar that which is Caesar's" means?
I like 'em already.
Having finished reading through the thread from where I left off, I have to say I like the way you think and articulate your thoughts.
And good luck to you with your Cordon Bleu certification and dreams of your own establishment.
You would :)
