    meninlove said Riddler would cut the welfare rates, put 'em to work and at the same time eradicate minimum wage so they'd...

    .....end up back on welfare along with all the current minimum wage earners who suddenly wouldn't be making enough to survive.. icon_lol.gif


    Just as you'd like to keep them unemployed by raising the minimum wage, and dependent on government by loosening welfare requirements and increasing benefits. You don't really want them to survive. You want to keep them dependent.


    Slaves are employees, so are sweatshop workers. Trust me, Riddler, minimum wage is important. So is a healthcare system that doesn't make you lose everything just because your aging parent or child gets sick.


    Trust you? Rather than pretty much a consensus among most economists? Are you aware of price controls and why they don't work? I agree that healthcare is important. I just think that it's too important to rely on government to provide it effectively. Then again you probably trust Meninlove and his delusions about the sustainability of the current healthcare system in Canada.


    If you can't afford to pay fair wages, then you need to do the work yourself. I don't care what you're building, the end doesn't justify the means when it comes to exploiting workers. Also, Obamacare is modeled after Romneycare. The horror stories you present from Canada aside, Canadians strike most Americans as a happy-go-lucky bunch who don't even lock their doors at night.

    ...and I'll bet you think the room you're standing in for that pic is painted bright red. icon_lol.gif

    Really sorry Riddley Widdly, but far wiser heads than yours have been running our country and provinces. You're nothing new and your way didn't work.
    What, you think your old ideas were never tried? icon_lol.gif

    Now why don't you and Socal and SB go create another sock account you can share like that last one?


    Sorry, wiser heads have run our country and provinces - and they're also considerably wiser than yours. It's really too bad that you pay so little heed to things like economics. You mean your ideas of spending more money, creating more entitlements and profligate spending have been tried? Oh right, Greece... icon_rolleyes.gif

    As for sock account - I've never had one and will only speak for myself though I often find it telling the racists you seem to enjoy associating yourself with like TropicalMark and UpperCdn. Perhaps one day you will find yourself actually being knowledgeable about something you argue about - but today apparently is not that day icon_wink.gif
    Riddler thinks he's funny! NOT! Nor is he the joker. He's just a plain old trustfund baby whining about why he cant own slaves.. cause he lives in Canada!

    I don't use sock accounts either. I say what I want to say with this account. Have you been drinking already?

    Meanwhile in Riddler's supposed province of residence, welfare is about 600 a month with an extra 100 for transportation if you're able to work, can't find a job so are volunteering, like helping at a food bank.
    The minimum wage is 10.25 an hour, but I guess Riddly Widdly thinks people would rather not work 30 hours a week and make roughly double the welfare amount.

    Riddly Widdly, the minimum wage is a powerful incentive to get people off welfare.

    Here. I'll make it simpler for you. If Jane gets one small meal a day for not working, but gets three meals a day if she does, what do you think Jane would rather do?

    To our US friends; I'm trying to keep Riddly Widdly busy so he'll butt out of telling you what to do. Nothing like a wealthy person in another country telling the poor in your country to make do with even less, eh?



    Oh poor meninlove - so sorry to offend your feeble senses icon_wink.gif You do seem to love your ignorance and associating yourself with others who so willingly are. From healthcare to minimum wage, your level of ignorance not only has no bounds but you seem to love proclaiming it to the world. When you actually have some response to the fact that more than 95% of wage earners are paid above minimum wage, or the fact that the people who actually earn minimum wage are almost solely those without experience or teenagers do please get back to me. In the meantime, it's really too bad you don't think enough of the poor and young to believe that they should work instead of remaining unemployed.

    Heh - I was thinking something similar - either that or the more sensible one hasn't been able to calm Doug down icon_razz.gif

    Yup. I'm so afraid of controversy and never say anything with this account that most would find objectionable so I need sock accounts. Hey Rids.... Who gets the "shared sock" this hour? Our coordination is slipping and someone changed the password. icon_lol.gif

    PS: Do they understand sarcasm?

    Oh here we go again with riddler's arrogance riddling his posts about the level of ignorance of others..
    My my, I guess NO human equals the intelligence of riddler the great! Everyone is 'less than' in riddlers mind..........icon_rolleyes.gificon_rolleyes.gificon_rolleyes.gificon_rolleyes.gif

    My dear Socal, The sock gave itself away. If I said how it would enable the persons who used that account. *pointed look* a method to avoid detection in the future. Let's just say the sock's mistake was as loud as a shout and gave its users away as to identity.

    All I can say is if you think I am using a sock account, keep your day job and don't become a detective.

    I've said it before: Riddler thinks if he just licks the right ass, he'll be welcomed into the fold. But the only way he'd ever get into an event held by his [white] idols is through the servant's entrance....and if he dared walk up to anyone, before he even said a word, they would politely smile and point the way to the kitchen. And later, when the topic of racism in America came up, that person would assure that the courtesy in which they direct "the coloured boy" to the kitchen was evidence enough that they themselves weren't racist.

    He's one of the stupidest Uncle Tom's on RJ. icon_rolleyes.gif


    Oh liberals... always enabling racists who agree with them on other issues. icon_rolleyes.gif
