I'm noticing a pattern in Mr. Bubba's style of argument.

Since no one seems to be able to understand what's being discussed at your admittedly high level, could you please make this easier on all of us and explain YOUR point of view on the topic instead of holding all the correct answers behind your back and making us all guess?

Isn't what you're doing one of those... um... ad hominy thingies?

I mean, I'm no stranger to being ignorant. I'd just love to find someone that both knows everything and is willing to tell me how it all works...

How can someone who obviously thinks so much of their ideas have so little respect for expressing them? How can someone who so yearns to be taken seriously make so little effort?!

Hey guys somebody posted back like 5 pages ago that he felt this debate wasn't going to further anyone's intelectual fancy but some other asshole decided to highlight one number that guys posted and arbitrarily decide that he meant it was a magic number and we're all gonna make a big deal out of it because thats how real debates work in the real world.

And come to think of it, just for accuracies sake. My argument was never through the entire ocurse of this trhread about the economy crashing. It was about unemployment resulting. You decided the economy thing for yourself jackass. Econ 101 genrally always teaches that unemployment follows minimum wage increases. That was the purpose of my obnoxious econ 101 statement. But thanks for trying.

So to follow suit in an apparently appropriate debate style since everyone hates mine so awfully much:

Put up or shut up man, where is the solid numerical proof that minimum wages increases cure genital herpes? Huh? lotsa big talk but no answers.

Well, what's really amusing about this is that Preechr probably (if I may make the assumption) would be more inclined to agree with the argument you're making, rather than what me, Ziggy, or Kahl have been saying.

You just sound like a dick making it. :/

"...economy crashing. It was about unemployment resulting. "

Economy and employment have absolutely nothing to do with eachother.
Just because the economy isn't completely crashing(which will probably NEVER EVER IN THE WHOLE WORLD HAPPEN, it can ALWAYS recover) doesn't mean it's not taking hits. What form might those hits take? Unemployment, maybe? I don't know what else you'd call a bad economy. Because the economy is so fucked up, in ohio the unemployment rate is shit. I mean come on man, use your fucking brain.
Employment and economy are pretty well connected. Why? Because the economy relies on the employees, and the businesses(which rely on the employees). Remember how complicated the economy is..lots of variables... yea. Mr. econ101.

I don't care about your magic number. I just thought it was funny when you presented it like it was some shocking thing, and wondered how exactly you thought it supported your argument that wages were increased by 21%(or a dollar) which was clearly stated in the article and in everyone else's post.

I think what most people are confused about is the fact that there has been alot of Inflation and bad economy already, and alot of people can't really afford to live. Has there been an increase in wages? Nope.
Like other people have said, there's alot of states where minimum wage is already higher, and most of those states are in better condition than the others. However, alot of states(like nevada) don't really need a higher wage, they already don't have state taxes which kind of balances things out. But then, who knows, even they could still be struggling. I wouldn't know, I don't live there.

"Put up or shut up man, where is the solid numerical proof that minimum wages increases cure genital herpes?"

While there is no cure for genital herpes, it is possible to control it. With an increase in minimum wage, you can afford the medicine you need. Please, vote for Jesus.

Hmm, I didn't really think I'd presented much of an argument.

Personally, I say revoke the minimum wage and provide anyone willing to work with access to food, shelter, medical care, and clothing, and then we all go to a "pretend socialism works" party and dance the night away. La la la.
