    Lazy-ass Protester: I shouldn't have to work as hard as you do to get what you have.

    Hard Working Conservative: Aren't you always whining about the world not being fair. Your proposal is not fair to those of us who actually made good lifestyle choices, and made sacrifices to insure a good quality of life in the future. Besides the effect that would have on the economy would just make it worse for everybody. (insert several well thought points based on actual economics in the real world)

    Lazy-ass Protester: Oh yea....long awkward pause....well, you're a (insert the most disgusting thing he can think of at the time)


    I'm sick of hearing this exact conversation about just about every political issue the media just happened to talk about that day. Hopefully they all get fired for not doing the one thing actually required of them at work, just showing up. Then the fast food restaurants will be forced to hire competent people. If that happened then it might justify paying their workers $7.25/hr and charging $8 for a burger and fries.

    BTW: if this argument makes me an asshole, then I would gladly be an asshole living in a country with a functional economy.

    I'm watching a pack of idiots on fox advocating 15 bucks an hour for a moron to ask if you want fries wid dat! You know how long you would last in business if you paid employees 100% more than they are worth!??! Just think, you get your job at mickey d's and all of a sudden at 15 bucs an hour you need to not work as hard because you deserve that money for no reason. This is truly the end of the world.

    I think I want to deliver newspapers, and I want 15 bucs an hour but I only need to work 4 days. Somebody better give me that job. Or else.

    Let's just say that I make quite a bit more than minimum wage at my job. But my job is not available to these idiots. Basically that is because if one of them tried to do it would probably resemble a dog attempting to drive a car. There would be a lot of staring blankly at the computer screen and not knowing even where to start. But I could certainly do their job. I could actually do it a lot better than they can. The point is if you want to make enough money to survive you need to bring more to the table than your time. You need to have some kind of skill that not everyone has to justify getting paid more than what local crack-head on the corner would accept for an hour of his time. As brutal as that sounds it is the main governing concept of every market system, yes, even socialism. If you can't justify what you think your are worth, then you have an inflated since of your own value. And no one wants to hear some asshole who thinks he's worth more than what anyone is willing to pay him, bitch about how no one appreciates him.

    I'd want a heck of a lot more than 15 bucs an hour! That's high tech! I'd have to drive past a college at least once a day to stay smart!

    I feel your pain. At the ripe age of 55 I had to take an entry position being a trainee payroll assistant. 2 years later I am now a payroll manager for one company with 120 employees and am a trainee in a Canadian company with 260 employees. I put in the time, do more than I am supposed to and took side courses in excel on the side. Not bad for being a cabinet maker for 35 years!
