Is it ironic that the people who say that without illegals aliens the cost of our fruits and vegetables will rise are the same people who are pushing for a minimum wage of $15, which is now responsible for $30 pizza?

Economics and logic appear to be concepts which don't exist in the liberal world. Morality also. And science. And history. If you think about it, liberalism looks a lot like anti-intellectualism.

Progressive/Liberal thought uses a totally different logic structure. Seems base a new type of morality, the Moral Left.

Hypocrisy to you and I. Irregardless, their movement had the motivation similar to a faith based religious group.

Evo ... you used "morality" yet I see no morality in the "ends justify the means" left.

Please elaborate!

That's because they are economic morons. I will gladly pay a bit more for my lettuce if farmers need to employ a new technology to pick it.

No hypocrisy there, right? That's how the thugs in Chicago deal, they protect those in the "family" and those who pay hush money, while screwing everyone else. Thanks, MrO!

So true, they hear one thing from their favorite comedy newscaster and repeat it as if they're some expert on economics

Why do people keep supporting raising minimum wage, it has already proven to be a massive failure and inflation completely destroys the purpose of paying people more

They support it for a couple of reasons ...

1) they don't understand that the economics of raising minimum wage hurts the poorest among us, and
2) they're weak minded and easily misled by the lies of Democrats.

It's not always the same people. I belong to the first group but not the second.

Me too, but I'm ok with the additional cost associated with a legal work force. It's a net good, imho. I suspect you feel similarly. The poll's premise, however, is correct in pointing out the hypocrisy of those who feign concern for prices whilst

Like I have said before, Democrats don't think about the long term consequences of their actions. They want CHANGE CHANGE CHANGE!!! but never stop to think if change is really what is needed at that moment.
