Fine. Define wages as an hourly salary paid weekly.

Define a yearly salary as a per year wage.

For the purpose of taxation, they are the same. I said that.

Why are you being such a dick? Did kaz start it again?



See, it is the way you react. 

The democrats are always pitching to their prole voters: a decent day's wage for a decent day's work or "wage gap" between worker and CEO or wages need to be increased.

Conservatives tend to not even address salaries or wages unless they feel baited by the dems such as the "Joe the Plumber" thing. or Wallstreet vs Main street.  Conservatives believe how much you make is up t you and it is your choice to take the job or not.  They want to stay out of how much you make or don't make.

Stop being a dick, Jeff.

Stop being a dick, Jeff.
Blame nurture then.

My father counseled me, "Jeff, it doesn't matter so much what you do, it's more important that you do whatever you choose well... Try to find something you are good at, that you think is worth doing, and be the best at it that you can!"

So, as I matured and went out into the larger world, people kept telling me I was a dick... Eventually, it seeped into my brain- "I'm a dick!" "It's what I'm best at in the whole world!"

So, from that point on, I made a conscious effort to be the best dick I could be. Smiley

I can't tell you how proud you make me feel when you confirm that I have succeeded. Smiley Smiley Smiley

Edit: This doesn't mean that nature is out of the equation... My sociopath older brother is as big a dick as can be imagined, and my mother is fairly accomplished too, so maybe it's mostly genetic???

Edit 2: Oh, I hope so!

If it's mostly genetic, then it's not my fault, and I'm a victim...

Which makes you an evil oppressor for calling me a dick!

Shame on you!

Social pressure needs to be used to shut you up, so you can't hurt me any more! Cry Cry Cry Cry

No more excuses Jeff.  It is not what you say or how you say things.  It is why you say things.  Just stop being a dick.  No need to justify anything or talk about your dad.  Just stop being a dick.

Oh...

You say I must stop believing what I believe?

That's why I say what I do, because I believe it to be true...

Do you not believe in freedom of conscience? Shocked

Anyway, only a fascist ogre would condemn me for being a genetically determined dick, or a dick created by nurture and the social matrix I was born in...

I'm telling you, I can't help what I've been forced to become!

Besides, I am good at it, and that is satisfaction in itself. Smiley Smiley Smiley

No, Jeff.  I am not asking you to not believe what you believe or to stop being yourself.  You have a non-dick in you so let him out.  Just treat others with respect and politeness and see what happens.  Give it a shot.

My non-dick self is much inferior to my dick-self.

Why should I settle for less than my best? For your sake?

No. Screw you.

I think condemning me for what I actually am is forbidden these days. 

You are attempting to deny my humanity by oppressing my dick nature, which is my nature.

I feel like a dick, and that's all that counts!

As you wish, Jeff.  Respectfully.

How about when I was relating some of my work experiences, and you said "I see red flags".

Obviously, that was intended to discredit me, and when I asked you to tell me what "red flags" you saw, you went silent...

That's not nice.


It's almost like I was only trying to discredit it when you tell me I've never worked in my life, and I specifically said that, and you ignored it.

You have probably never worked a day in your life, and you've certainly never been a manager. Your accounts of having worked have more red flags than communism.

This cannot be used against you if you actually have an argument. That would be a fallacy. But if your entire argument is that the other person is an idiot because you know what the working world is like...

Yeah... no.


I've supported myself, and usually others, since I was nine. I'm the one everybody else hits up for money, and if I don't give it to them, I'm wrong, and if I do give it to them, I'm also wrong.

I don't think someone who has probably been on disability all his life should be telling me that I've never worked. If you think that's not nice, maybe don't do it to others.
  

This moral relativism of yours is exactly what lets government take this freedom, then that freedom, until we have lost them all.

Well, what were the "red flags" that you saw?
