  1. Re: Increasing the Minimum Wage hurts those most vulnerable in our society.

    That's a great question. The answer lies in the fact that demand and supply don't necessarily happen at the same time. Let's stick without pizza shop example. When it comes to margin (ie how much...

    Re: Theistic beliefs are not rationally justified

    Hmm, not in any mainstream Christian theology I know about. I'm not aware of any theology that puts them in Heaven before the fall. The way I'm reading your response is that you seem to think that...
  3. Re: Increasing the Minimum Wage hurts those most vulnerable in our society.

    How would you do that? We've seen in the evidence that that almost never happens that overall takehome pay decreases. Remember, they are getting two hours less work from you, so they are going to...

    Re: 75 Ways Socialism Has Improved America

    Well sort of, Socialism itself is a transitional state. So, during Socialism that process would occur. Because Socialism is the transitional state where all the bad things would happen as a society...
  5. Re: Increasing the Minimum Wage hurts those most vulnerable in our society.

    Sure. And you have less take home pay. That is what several studies posted here have shown, that the cut in hours overcomes the additional pay. So, let's go with your example.

    Sure, in Neue Rheinische Zeitungboth, both Engels and Marx referred to groups in Europe that could not (rather than would not) achieve class consciousness. Groups like the Magyars, the Slavs, and...

    See post 25 (http://www.onlinedebate.net/forums/showthread.php/27959-75-Ways-Socialism-Has-Improved-America?p=566305&viewfull=1#post566305)

  8. Re: Republicans Refuse to Defend Us Against Foreign Attacks

    Which is the point, attempt to substitute other stuff notwithstanding. Since you only mentioned President Trump in the OP, and we all agree that Ibelsd has defeated the OP, the thread is defunct.
  9. Re: Increasing the Minimum Wage hurts those most vulnerable in our society.

    I think you are confusing what you are responding to here. Mican isn't debating in this thread. Nor were you asking if something had been looked at. Rather, you were asserting that the...
  10. Re: Increasing the Minimum Wage hurts those most vulnerable in our society.

    Are you conflating choosing to forgo training that makes you more valuable and increases your wages with being legally forced to accept that trade off?

    The point in linking all that work together...
  11. Re: Republicans Refuse to Defend Us Against Foreign Attacks

    That didn't reference a single Republican, which is the point here.



    I said the only Republican referenced was President Trump. That is objectively and definitively the case, right?

    Re: 75 Ways Socialism Has Improved America

    That doesn't really save you either. If both ends of the spectrum endorse ethnic cleansing, you don't really escape that by being in the middle. What's more, we know your position doesn't escape...
  13. Re: Increasing the Minimum Wage hurts those most vulnerable in our society.

    Please re-read that quote. "...so that their net take home pay decreases..." IE less work and less money.

    Re: 75 Ways Socialism Has Improved America

    Yes, but they didn't see socialism as you see socialism. They had a vastly, vastly different definition of that term than you did. And they also saw it as conducting ethnic cleansing, which was...
  15. Re: Republicans Refuse to Defend Us Against Foreign Attacks

    You mean your random radio story? That wasn't an example at all, it was just Cowboy's story time. It also isn't clear at all that that person was even a Republican (you identify them as...

    Re: Theistic beliefs are not rationally justified

    Generally that was the point I was referring to. Why does it seem an odd way to go about it? How would you have gone about it? I’m not trying to be flippant here, but I think if we are going to...
  18. Re: Increasing the Minimum Wage hurts those most vulnerable in our society.

    Wait, are you seriously maintaining that reduced non-pecuniary benefits are beneficial to employees? We'd need to see some pretty strong logic and evidence to hold that as possibly true. We might...
  19. Re: Republicans Refuse to Defend Us Against Foreign Attacks

    And the only Republican was President Trump. If you are extrapolating that out to all Republicans you've committed a hasty generalization fallacy and we can shelve the thread now. Otherwise, you...

    No, but you referenced them when defending your position. That implies at least a vague connection with your position, a connection they wouldn't agree with.

    You've made no such argument that...

    Re: 75 Ways Socialism Has Improved America

    That kinda concedes the implied point of the thread a bit doesn't it? If this is such a good system that it gives us things like the Secret Service, we should also be aware that it exterminates...
  22. Re: Republicans Refuse to Defend Us Against Foreign Attacks

    OP = A
    Cowboy's argument = B

    Bait, and switch.

    The point being that what you are arguing is a different argument than what was presented in your OP. The OP has been defeated unless you can...
  23. Re: Increasing the Minimum Wage hurts those most vulnerable in our society.

    Of the minimum wage? I sincerely hope you are kidding given the length of this thread.

    Macroeconomic Evidence

    This is a relatively rare phenomenon in economics, but agreement with the claim...
  24. Re: Increasing the Minimum Wage hurts those most vulnerable in our society.

    That's all that is required. Going back to post 596, two pages ago, you are conceding the point made by Prof. Boudreaux about the similarity between minimum wage laws and poll taxes. You insisted...

    And? The inequality of power relates to the effectiveness to implement a decision.

    The point we are discussing is that the decision was made socially (your definition of socialism). Thus, we...
  26. Re: Republicans Refuse to Defend Us Against Foreign Attacks

    Easily, you don't mention a single Republican in your OP that isn't Trump. You don't imply or hint at or reference other Republicans. Trump is literally the only person in the OP referenced. Hard...

  28. Re: Increasing the Minimum Wage hurts those most vulnerable in our society.

    So very close, but no. The right for an individual to engage in economic activity. As I noted go back and read sub-paragraph (d) of the court's findings. You'll notice specifically it talking about...
  29. Re: Republicans Refuse to Defend Us Against Foreign Attacks

    Interesting bait and switch, but it isn't applicable. Go re-read your OP, which is about Trump. If you don't have a supporting, coherent argument aside from the OP, then the thread is over given...

    Yes!!! And what right did it discriminate against?
