[quote]Being a patriotic, masculin, law abiding, sports loving outdoorsman[/quote] Other than the law abiding part none of these is any measure of a man. I know plenty of men who are conservatives who can't care less about sports and have never been fishing or hunting more than a couple of times...

re: Very polarizing opinions on Bush and Obama on this board - germandawg
Pretty telling how badly both are despised by those who don't like 'em. Bush did some stupid shite while in office but he wasn't the anti-christ and neither is Obama. If, however, you liked W you are going to love you some Hillary...they are nearly identical. There ain't no telling how many war...

[quote]Okay how about the 18 year old woman with three kids? [/quote] She is going to have to earn more than the 18 year old in the basement. She is already on the dole....her employer should foot the bill or her production. If said employer can man their business with 18 year olds living in...

re: Minimum wage, what about those of us that can't raise the price of our services? - germandawg
[quote]The reason it won't be done is that it shouldn't be done. A kid living in their parents' basement isn't entitled to a certain wage. A person in their 40s so unskilled they can't do anything more than low-paying work isn't entitled to a certain wage. It's very easy to make a living in this cou...
