Also, lol at the implication that interest in raising wages is just some "leftist" pet issue.

That wasn't the implication. It was that the left generally has disdain for Walmart. Do you really think that is debatable?

Nevermind that, in one recent poll, 73% of Americans said they favor raising the federal minimum wage.

Surely you're not suggesting we use public opinion polls to determine economic policy and other such matters on which the public may not be qualified to opine?

yeah, crazy talk.  we should just stick to the opinion polls from campaign donors, CEO's and stock holders.  this isn't a democracy or anything.

We are not a democracy. We are a constitutional republic.
That said, I agree with what you are saying.

If leftist world views caused suicide, wouldn't there be a lot more suicides?

Am I actually trying to argue rationally with something Rush Limbaugh said?
