    It is ironic to hear the same people who say ďif you donít want to work minimum wage develop a skill so you can get paid moreĒ complain about nobody wanting to go back to work. Where is that same energy? Why isnít it ďif you want people to work at your business, pay them moreĒ?

    Many businesses cannot afford to pay people more than they are now. Even in great economic times, main street, ma & pa businesses are stretched pretty thin. Forcing people to pay above market rates for unskilled labor makes no economic sense.

    Maybe because a **** ton of business don't have the funds thanks to the government overreach policies that you support.

    Anyway...glad you could afford Hawaii.

    Thatís the businesses fault. If they canít afford to pay people what the government pays in unemployment thatís their fault. They should pull themselves up by their bootstraps, become more valuable, etc. you know all that hyperbole you foist on the common man.

    Not very capitalistic of you to shame a man for his wealth. Yes, I make vacation to Hawaii money. No, I wonít apologize for it. You should work harder so you too can afford trips to Hawaii.

    Shame we didn't hit them with more tax cuts...then people would have lined up all the way down Main Street to work for $7.25.

    Iíve been shaming them for not wanting to help those less fortunate. I supported the stimulus checks even though I havenít qualified for a single one. I support higher taxes on higher income brackets even though it means higher taxes for me. I support a higher minimum wage despite the fact my goods and services would increase in price.

    I put my money where my mouth is. I make, but I also give. Wealthy Republicans want to make, but not give. In short, Iím not greedy with my money.

    Wait. Are you actually using 2 states as the common denominator for the other 48?

    Glad you could afford to be an absolute fool the last year or so.

    Yeah...so do I. But when I told you the charities that I donate thousands of dollars to every year, you laughed. They weren't good enough for you. They didn't fit your ideology of the utopian America.

    Your dollars are better than mine.

    What do you donate to. And don't lie.
